QoL Month Week 2: Skilling
It's time for our second week of QoL month - Skilling! Let us know your thoughts on all the proposed changes below and on the two ideas found in this post!
The schedule for Skilling Week is as follows:
- In-game poll live by 08/02
- In-game poll closes 12/02
Make sure you head over to the Old School Content Suggestions forum, or Reddit (/r/2007scape/) to share your suggestions for Week 3 - Re-Runs!
Poll Question #1Should the Ring of Forging be made available in Free to Play? Currently, the ring is rarely used on members worlds but could be useful to free players. If this passes, Murky Matt at the Grand Exchange will enchant Ruby rings for free players at the cost 250 GP per ring.
Poll Question #2Should jugs & vials dropped in the Wintertodt and Blast Furnace area vanish, rather than appearing on the ground where they get in the way of other click-zones? Regardless of the outcome of this question, items dropped there manually will never appear to anyone except their owner.
Poll Question #3Should there be a visual indicator that the Hespori plant is fully grown at the Farming guild? This would allow players to see the status of the Hespori plant without entering the cave.
Poll Question #4Should the amount of Volcanic Ash mined from each action increase by an extra 1 per 15 Mining levels you have above the requirement (22)? So at 37 Mining, you would receive 2 Volcanic Ash per action, 3 at 52 Mining and so on, up to 6 at 97 Mining.
Poll Question #5Should Wyverns found on Fossil Island drop Volcanic Ash as an uncommon drop? This would be 100 on average for Ancient Wyverns and 40 on average for Long-tailed, Spitting and Taloned Wyverns.
Poll Question #6Should it be possible to refill Gricoller's can using standard water sources? The can is a reward from the Tithe Farm minigame which holds up to 1,000 "charges" of water. Currently it requires 20 points to refill from empty.
Poll Question #7Should Sandstone be able to be used in place of Buckets of Sand, similar to how Seaweed may be used in place of Soda Ash, when a player casts the Lunar spell "Superglass Make"? 10kg chunks would act as 18 buckets, 5kg as 9 buckets, 2kg as 4 buckets and 1kg as 2 buckets.
N.B: The above is intentionally balanced so that 1kg and 2kg pieces of Sandstone produce more buckets of Sand per unit of weight than heavier blocks. This is to reward players with slightly more sand for chiselling down the larger pieces.
Poll Question #8Should the Prayer Skill Guide be updated to show the relevant Prayer icons alongside the associated Prayer? It currently displays a generic Saradomin symbol.
Poll Question #9Should the Magic Skill Guide be updated to show the relevant Spell icons alongside the associated spells for Regular, Ancient, Lunar and Arceuus spells? They currently display more generic symbols.
N.B: The Slayer Skill Guide was also raised by players as potentially needing the above changes. Due to the size of Slayer Master chatheads, these would be more problematic to fit into the Skill Guide, so we're leaving that skill alone for now.
Poll Question #10Should Unfinished Torstol vials be able to be used in place of a clean Torstol when making Super Combat potions? No creatures drop these items and the potion created from the unfinished vial is rarely created by players. Most of the unfinished potions are made accidentally via Zahur in Nardah.
Poll Question #11Should "Enchant Jewellery" spells, once the relevant action has started, be automated? The enchanting will only automate for the item that was originally selected to be enchanted: a player who selects to enchant a Sapphire ring, for example, will only have other Sapphire rings enchanted over time in their inventory. This would act the same way as offering Bones to an Altar where manually doing the action would remain faster than the automated process.
Poll Question #12Should splitting Coconuts, once the action has started, be automated? This would act the same way as offering Bones to an Altar where manually doing so would remain faster than the automated process.
Poll Question #13Should pouring Coconut Milk into Empty Vials, once the action has started, be automated? This would act the same way as offering Bones to an Altar where manually doing so would remain faster than the automated process.
Poll Question #14Should filling Watering Cans, once the action has started, be automated? This would act the same way as offering Bones to an Altar where manually doing so would remain faster than the automated process.
Poll Question #15Poll Question #15
Should creating Serum 207's, once the action has started, be automated? This would act the same way as offering Bones to an Altar where manually doing so would remain faster than the automated process. A more relevant example of this existing for Herblore in particular exists for the creation of Anti-Venom.
