I presume fawx just wants higher post count tbh.

This is just a few lines of code refactored (sparing the cave change which is also basic). Absolutely disgrace from a multi-million-pound faculty.

This update is going to have a major effect on low-midgame ironmen.

If this is really about balancing the wilderness, why don't you make the stat changes applicable in the wilderness only?

I spent a good while training on my new ironman to make Xerician robes and now they're pretty much useless for mage... Gonna have to train to 66 mage and save up for Mystic Robes.

Also, a lot of ironmen use green dhide gear as the crafting requirements for blue/red/black are very high for players who need to collect their own resources (unless sourcing items through medium/hard clues).

Seems like this update could have been better thought out to make it less disruptive for lower-level players who don't use the wilderness/pk.

Was this update ever polled for the players to decide? If not, why not?

The news post says "First up, we have the last of the remaining Equipment Rebalance changes"

Should we take that to mean that the re-tiering of the existing equipment will not happen? Ex: Ghrazi rapier 75-80 attack, Saeldor 75-80 attack etc?

The way that's worded it sounds like you're done with equipment rebalancing.

The amount of unpolled content coming into the game these days is shameful. Just because you spread the updates throughout the year and stir up other drama does not excuse this. The community is meant to control the direction of the game but recently it's really not been the case.

The polling system allows the community to trust you but when you make unpolled changes it shows you don't trust the polling system or the community, which in turn breaks the communities trust with you. You need to believe in the system, keep the trust there to make old school the community game it wants to be.
Finally we have signatures in the surprise forum update.
