I would like to take a minute to thank you for this update. Being on an ironman account, we usually don't see too many quality of life updates that make a big impact for us.
Being a casual player, this cuts down the amount of time that it takes to complete these challenges, and from what i've seen so far I really like the type of challenges and the options that are available to complete the challenges. This gives me more time to focus on other activities. Since we don't have too many things that give us any extra xp, this is a big deal!

Again, thank you and I look forward to more QoL updates!

Yea, before this update i was doing only Dungeoneering and Construction Dailies.
They improve all skills but, unfortunitely, destroy Dungeoneering challenges.

Skills that cup on 120 (Herb, Dungeoneering, Slayer, Farming) require adequate bonus, they should not be capped at lvl99 reward.

As a HCIM, this update actually decreased my "quality of life." The removal of loot bags was a horrific loss, and the challenges are now so easy that they're completely unrewarding.

I used to go out of my way to do my challenges. I don't anymore. If they get done during the normal course of my gameplay, then fine. If not, I don't even care.

I do agree that the loot bags were beneficial, but honestly i could get most of the resources easier on my own. The XP drops from the DG challenges were very nice. I feel it is more balanced now.

Since I only get a little time to play every few days or on weekends, this helps me out in a big way. I don't usually have time to grind out 336 yew longbows from scratch... I understand that this update may not be great for people that dedicate more time to the game.
Jagex usually only gets feedback when it's negative, every update that happens isn't going to please everyone, and I just wanted to take the time to let them know I do appreciate this update and it benefits my play style.

More balanced? DG goes to 106M xp and the reward is just 55K xp. That's 4.6 years of doing the challenge every day :|

The challenge system as a whole is more balanced now.... is what i was meaning.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but the challenge system is not intended to be the only source of XP max out a skill, just a nice supplement. If i'm already doing a DG floor, an added 55k xp is nice.

Everyone wants free XP left and right. I guess no one appreciates the real grind anymore.

Current leveling xp increase rate is too much for regular way of grinding. What is reasonably possible on way to 99 became ridiculous on way to 120. Jagex tried to fix this with implementing elite skills like invention but did not find proper solution for older skills. Adjusting rewards to lvl120 skills is absolutely reasonable request that has nothing in common with "free stuff" request.
Actually, new Daily's reward of free Huge lamp IS "free stuff" way of playing for all other skills. It making leveling to 99 a joke. To be consistent Dailies should not be available for Iron accounts at all as it devaluate the idea.
