Golden Barrows now requires Kindred Spirits quest completed to be earned from raffle. Golden barrows items won are now (inactive) and can't be worn until above requirement is met.

Golden Chaotics now require all bryll permanent unlocks unlocked to be won.

Golden Warpriest now requires 75 defense.

Golden Godswords now require Tales of the God Wars and at least one of each GWD1 boss kill to wear them.

Protean packs now require you to have won any protean pack from TH before being able to win them.

Portable Deposit Boxes can't be placed within 5 squares of another. Portable deposit boxes have their private setting removed.

Deathtouched darts now require 5m to activate. Controversial, but it is what they cost at the merch.

Hopefully this will be implemented for next year's raffle. I have never supported raffle rigging and hopefully my post here clarifies my stance on raffle rigging.

Lol what? You just made dtd pointless with that suggestion

The point of the raffle is that we dont have to pay that 5m

Legitimate players will be screaming, cussing and rage quitting the raffle while alt users will be dancing and taunting any legit players left for the raffle.

The point of death touched darts and protean packs are to allow players to receive them without paying gp and irl cash respectively. Why should I torment myself with worry whether I would win or not when I could get them from merchant's at the exact same price?

As for the other ideas, a griefer's point of rigging the raffle is so he could DESTROY them for his youtube views, not to use them. If you really wanted to bar alt armies from the raffle, you would make it so you can't even obtain the rewards unless you meet the requirements to use them. You still get lamps at least. (This has been suggested by others, but not what I necessarily support).

From my view though, Jagex looks like they condone alt rigging anyway, so in my personal opinion just have fun with other players with or without the raffle rather than making the event even more exclusive and frustrating.

I suggest killing a boss if you to profit from their loot.
You'll get it when you deserve it.

What? Ofc i would kill bosses but the chances of profiting after paying 5m per dart is so low that it wouldn't be worth using em.

on topic: i don't like these suggestions as it narrows down who can qualify for an item and ruins the fun of a raffle.

These reqs are strict but not unreasonable. I mean, if you don't even meet the reqs to wear/use the items then I don't think you HAVE to be qualified to win them. The reqs on protean and deathtouched are unnecessary in my opinion. Everyone can use them at any time and so you should be able to use your tickets on them. Feel free to take a look at my suggestions:

1 issue with limiting some items, imo...so you have say 4 limited items, for people that cant do those 4, they basically automatically win the other 3 because they'll have wayyy more tickets available for those days since they can't use em on anything else. This lowers the prize pool for people that can win everything.
