TH, especially prizes, are getting a big change next Monday. Of note, we will no longer be winning Skilling Outfits and Slayer Masks from Alice:

The following prizes will be removed from Treasure Hunter:

Skilling Outfits (Normal and Elite)
Slayer Masks - these will instead be available through Shattered Worlds play
Wicked Hood Tokens - now available in the Runespan Shop for 1.5k points each
200m Coins (this has been replaced by a 50m Coin prize, but thanks to the new balancing players will be sure to net more coins in total than previously)
Brilliant Alchemist Fragments (fragments that were otherwise lying around have been converted to 250 Oddments each)
All cosmetic items except those applicable to a current promotion


So newer players will have to get them from skilling and inevitably playing minigames soon. This is probably going to help some old minigames to regain some attention.

Cosmetic items will be limited to promotions only. Perhaps this will make many tradeable cosmetics/tokens more valuable.

There will no longer be 200 mil gp prize. We'll get 50 mil gp ones rather. The good thing for me is I just a 200 mil gp prize a couple of days ago.. Just in time before it is going to be tuned down... :D

All changes seem to be pretty reasonable, if not outright good, except perhaps I only have 3 days to use up my close to 5k HoIs. It doesn't seem possible. :(

I don't really get what their train of thought is behind the 1000 runespan points for one wicked hood teleport token. Like, you get maybe 1000-1300 or so runespan points per hour for high runecrafting levels. 1000 points for one single teleport, like how is that worth it? Even outside of Abyss use just running to the Death Altar is way faster than the 50-ish minutes it takes to get the wicked hood teleport at runespan, with all the other altars being faster than Death altar. I haven't timed it, but I'm fairly sure that even when banking at Ardougne North bank you're still much faster running to the Death altar than that.


I definitely get their "train of thought". Runesapan points are pretty useless, but can be obtained rather easily even without doing Runespan from DSP Merchant Shop fairly commonly. Once every few days I can buy an Unstable Air Run, good for 5k Runespan points already.

Besides, there is almost no point for Runespan Points after getting maxed Esteem (a trimmed comp requirement?). However, there may still be points to continue to train RC at Runespan and continue to collect useless Runespan Points. Runespan points for Wicked Hood Teleport definitely is a favor for players with maxed Esteem.

Not necessarily, skilling outfits should still be available from vic also - so they could just wait untill that comes around.


Theoretically yes, new players can get skilling outfits from Vic, but practically a bad idea as players are actually paying a stiff cost of xp to buy skilling outfits from Vic. This is especially bad for newer players when xp and bxp are hard to come by at lower skill levels. It is also not a good idea to have to only get wait for Vic in town every 4 months unless they want to pay another price to buy bonds for Portable Vic.

Exactly.

I dont understand why they're removing the outfits as i dont seem them as an issue.

Plus its not like theres any better alternatives as stated.


Probably to try to get players to do more minigames.
