Will be really interesting to see how the new story progresses. Desperate times got me excited! :D

A decade later, we get Kudos Island, huzzah, :D! Acheron and Palingrad next year, then? Woo!

Looking forward to this. At least one quest (right?), plenty of exploration and hopefully some kind of archaeology minigame with cool rewards. I certainly am looking forward to this! :)

Just hope it doesn't suffer from the same mistakes as Menaphos; wanting too much, ending up watering down everything.

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

That's my worry as well, because this feels like the kind of hyping that Jagex did for Menaphos, which turned out to be a beautiful city with a boring grind for gameplay. At the very least, I hope they scrapped the whole "we had to add a reputation system so that you wouldn't complete the whole content in just 1-2 days" mentality. :P

Kind of tentatively hoping for more collections though... Arc and Menaphos ones are fun, but: some of the birds/orokami/storm- & stoneberry seeds/gems/insects are too rare. It should be fun and not grindy. Requiring obscurely specific conditions is fine, but having to rely on pure luck or level 90+ stats is not.

Hoping for an extension of the kudos system to fill some more exhibits, too.

Ye, Arc collections felt more about exploration, which was fun, while Menaphos forced me to spend many hours using medium level training methods as a comped player, which was the opposite. :P

Well, insects (and gems) turned out not to be as bad as I had feared. Got the last six or seven insects within two hours. Suppose I was lucky with some; got both plover insects with three plovers.

But that last orokami...and that *damned* Pumpkin Limpkin. I really dislike Uncharted Isles, but that bird, may Zamorak eat it, just makes me loathe the Arc, even though it doesn't deserve that. :P

The island looks good graphics wise, but it's all about the gameplay. Every hyped up update in the past years has failed to deliver, so I don't see why this update would suddenly be different. Also, unless there's PvP on the island, it will just be more of the same.

Looks nice, but I hope you go all the way with making an amazing summer by also removing dailyscape and the MTX from the game. Those changes coupled with great new content would be a summer to remember! > )


Wouldn't be surprised if we get an island TH action in the first week, followed by another dailyscape 14 day grindfest (which can be skipped with bonds) to get some island cosmetics, and to end off the summer another DXPW with a TH Dino XP promotion right before it.
