As somebody who literally just spent a few weeks doing all 3 dungeons for the books (while also doing other things), I support story mode allowing us to teleport us to the first two bosses through the Treasure Chest. Doing the entire dungeon over and over again just to get to Taraket, or Masuta, in story mode where you get nothing, is frankly annoying and time consuming.

Even if they lowered the drop rate a bit, it would be worth the lower chance to be able to fight the boss more times per hour.

Even though I just got the last book I needed, I support the option for other people.


yeah it would be handy
200m Dunge, Rc, Mage and invention accomplished, + 120 Constitution/Slayer/Range/Summoning/Woodcutting/Mining/Defence/Strength and 110m fishing, got comp/MQC and 200m Fishing/Woodcutting/Mining as well as 120 herb, 120 farming is next!

I don't know much about elite dungeons, the bosses are way too hard for me, but I do agree that some progressions are locked behind way too much RNG. Back in the days there also was RNG, but it was mostly getting a lucky drop that was worth a lot of money like Dragon Chain from Dust Devils or Third age armour from clues. I don't mind it too much for tradeable stuff, but for untradeable stuff that the game seemingly expects you to achieve locking it behind low-odds RNG is just not fun. It's the same with Archaeology, where the keys to one of the areas in the Warforge are behind RNG and quite rare, I think I went through like 6 or 7 complete collections before unlocking the area. Also a lot of the Archaeology mysteries are locked behind collecting all of the pages of a set, and they can be quite rare as well, I'm already three Dragonkin 2 collections in and still have yet to find a page from the set that should drop there. It took me about seven complete Dragonkin 1 collections to get the Varanus hunter page set and I've yet to even come close to completing the Archaeology potion recipe.

I don't mind things being grindy, but I do mind it when one person has to grind way more than another person to unlock game progressions purely because of dumb luck.

That's the thing, I don't mind bosses being challenging and needing a lot of skill to take down, Skill>>>luck tbh
