Combat experience calculations in Elite Dungeons now award a ratio of experience relative to the damage dealt to the defeated NPC.



Where is the mention of this that supposedly should be listed right in this post? Do people even realise ED3 has been nerfed for group encounters?

It felt like something to do with the new XP drop update at first so I just chalked it up to a graphical error. However, following some digging -- it appears there has actually been an update and no mods are talking about it. Make people aware when you nerf one of the big features keeping your RS3 player base active.


The equal xp shared amongst players encouraged social playing and now people, myself included, are just encouraged to run ED3 solo. More dead content incoming once people get bored of grinding it solo.
I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Wow, yeah. I usually donít use the forums but thought Iíd find some backlash to this nerf. I mean I understand why they did it. The amount of combat 99s people got by leeching maxed players is probably north of over 9000. At the same time its true people are not going play it as much cause xp rates will be better elsewhere. Oh, well. Seems like a painful but necessary change. Hey! at least the loot doesnít seem to have been nerfed!

I mean, the xp so was so insane I thought Jagex agreed with their new owners to try to max out players asap so more people could reach endgame content quicker, making the game easier and thus more attractive. But, looks xp rates are back down to normal again.

edits:lotsa typos

So, how many selection highlight things do we really need, here? There's a highlight, a selection marker, and a surrounding selection circle.... what is going on? Is this game now gearing towards children? If so, it's time to make like a tree and gtfo.


Fortunately, you are able to turn this off within settings.

I'm totally with you. I was surprised to learn of this through a streamer. Where can we get the actual full patch notes on what gets changed? I thought this was the official channel.

I've been playing for a while now and really enjoy the game. I finally got some friends to play with me but the clan invite seems to be broken. i can get the charter and click them to invite but they cant right click the notification to accept it. Don't know if I'm doing it wrong but i cant seem to get it to work.
