• Runescape: Unfinished Business and Strategy Update
    By Bmichaellogan2017-07-11 00:00:00




    While many of you have liked - even loved - Menaphos, it's fair to say that it's had its problems. Regardless of whether you felt it was complete,, the developer and publisher of Runescape underestimated how much of their focus it would take up, and they've neglected other updates as a result.


    Expansions take up a huge quantity of dev time, leading to a sparse release schedule and less player happiness. It's clear that regular updates is something that makes RuneScape RuneScape. The game feels less alive without them.


    For this reason, Jagex are suspending development on all future expansions. They might release expansion-sized updates like Elf City in the future, but they won't be committing to a sequence of them, and there will be no additional expansion this year.


    I know that might sound dramatic, but hear them out and find out why they think this will benefit RuneScape.




    You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't like Ninja updates. That particular fix you've been waiting for can often have a greater impact than a conventional update. But colossal projects like the Bank Rework have been blocking the team from strengthening weeks with these essential quality-of-life improvements.


    That's a real, real shame. Jagex miss those updates. So, three weeks ago, they made the decision to double the number of developers and testers on the Ninja Team.


    Thanks to the additional developers and testers, Jagex will be releasing Ninja fixes such as the following throughout July:


       •Quick Prayer Presets that allow you to define a bunch of different prayers and curses to be turned on via one action, stored as a right click option on the prayer button or action bar

       •An Aura Bag to manage and unlock loyalty auras

       •Barrows, Shadow, Third Age and Blood dyes for all Telos weaponry


    That's a taste of the updates you can expect regularly, and they've got many more ready for August (and don't worry – the Bank Rework is still very much a thing). They're determined to keep the quality of Ninja fixes high, and they've got a plan for how they might do that.



    Unfinished Business


    Okay, now for the big one. For the foreseeable future, the Eternals and Titans will be delivering the updates that have been promised in the past. They will be finishing updates that feel unfinished and improving the core of the game. Think area reworks rather than new areas, and continuations of old questlines rather than new ones.


    Simply put, Jagex want to pause for a moment and resolve the Unfinished Business in RuneScape.


    A good example is Achievements. Let's not assume they're done with it: Jagex want to fix it, and make it something that benefits the game for years. So, they are planning to bring in interface improvements based on your suggestions, including more achievements onscreen at one time and a Player Inspect feature.


    Invention Batch 2 is another strong example. You know it's coming from a Dev Diary, but they're expanding its remit so that it not only adds to Invention, but attempts to fix it too. So, while you can expect devices, machines and benefits beyond level 10 for your augmented gear, you can also expect fixes. These will include the removal of Inspiration, making tradeable Augmentors, and a clearer idea of which Perks will come from which components.

  now reach a bit of a quandary. In an ideal world, they'd show you a list of all of the Unfinished Business updates, complete with their release dates. BUT that would only create more expectation, and add to 'Unfinished Business' rather than deduct from it.


    Instead, they'd like to list 10 updates that they're actively working on or researching. There are no dates attached: just reassurance that they're looking at these right now, and that they'll be released only when they're ready and right for the game:


       •Bank Rework

       •Mining and Smithing

       •Clue Scroll Overhaul

       •Dailyscape reductions

       •Invention Batch 2

       •Achievement System finishing

       •Evil Dave Quest

       •Graphical Reworks, including Seers' Village and Witch's House

       •Combat Pets

       •Shattered World improvements, to make it more rewarding and varied


    Jagex are going to be giving playerw progress-reports on these. Expect the first on the 28th of July and regularly thereafter.
