Mini Poll Miscellaneous Improvements


We’ve released some pretty long polls recently, so in the Guthixian spirit of balance we’re keeping it short this week with a mini poll!

The next big poll will mainly focus on PvP quality of life, but this mini poll is based around feedback we've received for recent changes to various aspects of the game. We've had lots of questions and comments about these issues, and the poll questions below will hopefully address those concerns. It's a marvellous miscellany!

First up – the Ash Sanctifier. When we originally polled this item, we didn’t make it clear whether completion of the Kourend & Kebos Diary would award you full Prayer experience for scattering ashes with it. So, let’s put this to the vote:

Question #1:

Should the Ash Sanctifier award players 100% Prayer XP upon completion of the Elite Kourend & Kebos Diary?

We’ve seen that the recent introduction of Amethyst Darts has caused an increase in demand for Amethyst crystals. Currently, the main way to obtain these Crystals is from the Mining Guild. As such, the current Amethyst Mining spots feel a bit crowded!

We propose adding an additional Amethyst Mining spot just North-West of the current one. Right now, there are 26 Amethyst veins within the Cave. The proposed expansion would introduce 36 more, which should free up more spaces for those willing to pay the price! Access to this area would cost each player 7,500 Stardust, via Belona. Once accessible, it would be permanently open to all who have paid entr

The newly proposed locations for Amethyst Mining spots within the Mining Guild (the design is not final).

Question #2:

Should we introduce an additional Amethyst Mining spot in the Mining Guild as pictured above, with a permanent unlock of the area costing 7,500 Stardust?

Some players may not need Enhanced Crystal Weapon Seeds after they’ve accumulated all of their Crystal weaponry, so they’re not a very satisfying reward. What if players could turn in unwanted Enhanced Crystal Weapon Seeds for Crystal Shards? One Enhanced Crystal Weapon Seed would have a trade-in value of 1,500 Crystal Shards.

Let us know if you like this idea, and we'll make it a reality!

Question #3:

Should it be possible to trade in duplicate Enhanced Crystal Weapon Seeds for Crystal Shards?

Next, we're looking at the Bow of Faerdhinen. We weren’t too sure on how the Ultimate community would feel about storing such a fearsome item within a STASH Unit. Although it is technically a Crystal Bow variant, it’s super powerful. What do you think?

Question #4:

(UIM ONLY) Should Ultimate Ironmen be able to store the Bow of Faerdhinen in a STASH unit, like main accounts can?

Last but not least, let’s talk Looting Bags!

We recently discussed possible changes to the Wilderness, and one of our proposed tweaks was replacing all single-way combat areas in the Wilderness with the singles-plus format. This would mean that PvP always took priority in these areas, so if a player was in a fight with a monster, they can still be attacked by another player.

However, there's a common method UIMs use to fill their Looting Bags in low-level Wilderness that would be affected by these changes. Currently, Ultimate Iron players can 'box' a skeleton, putting them in combat with an NPC and preventing other players from attacking them. This then allows them to refill their Looting Bag. While we believe the Wilderness should maintain a healthy balance of risk vs reward (and preventing Ultimate Iron players from being able to 'box' a Skeleton would certainly increase the risk) we appreciate that this method has become an established strategy for many.

We'd like to avoid making exceptions to combat rules, so rather than making low-level areas of the Wilderness retain the current single-way combat format, we'd like to propose changing the rules of the Looting Bag itself. In future, it would be possible to store items inside it while in Ferox Enclave.

All other restrictions to the Looting Bag would remain the same.

Question #5:

Should it be possible to store items inside a Looting Bag when within Ferox Enclave and the Wilderness?

Question #6:

(UIM ONLY) If Question #5 passes and items can be stored inside a Looting Bag when within Ferox Enclave and the Wilderness, should Ultimate Iron players also benefit from this change?
