Can you also please amend the poll to include a cosmetic change to the ferocious gloves? Currently, they don't cover your hands, so you can't really see them. I don't care that much, but actually being able to see them on those little Runescape meatball hands would be nice.
Q8: I think that's a must. It'd also be nice for it to have a chance of dropping an extra one as well. Once they're noted, it's easier to get more of them out into the economy if needed since it's a one-click stack.
Q9: Will this be to get to the Hydra for bossing, or just to receive stuff? Why not put the recovery chest right in the first room so people don't also use it to EZTele right to the boss?
Q13: It's good, but my main gripe is the crowds. It'd be nice to have a non-task and task-only room.
Q16: what if someone already completed it?
Also, can the recolored slayer helm perk be titled "Hydra Headgear"?
About the hydra tail suggestion, this new ammo slot bonecrusher doesn't make the cut for it to be very useful imo. If it goes in ammo slot, crushes bones AND restores prayer points but lacks the +12 prayer bonus (and it would still require a dragonbone necklace), then it'd be an okay tradeoff.
Also I hope we can claim the new XP lamp if we've already completed Alliance miniquest. Thankfully the team rarely seem to overlook such details!
While it's good that you're addressing the problems with the Lance and making it more viable, the same thing should be done about the Dragon Hunter Crossbow. It just feels very off that two weapons specifically made to kill this boss still are worse than the blowpipe.
Nice improvements, but the drakes drop table still needs a buff for how high of a slayer level it is. It takes a while to kill them and i'm close to max and i make less money than killing wyrms off task.
The Drakes need more unique drops or a better drop table to match the time it takes to kill them. I can't comment much on the Hydra as i'm only 90 slayer.Drakes need a buff to be worth killing and not a blocked task
The dragon hunter lance is in a niche spot where it's a poor-man's DHCB at vorkath or poorman's scythe at olm hand. To high level players, it's the dead-content lance, might I suggest that we make it a more viable weapon by giving it something that rivals the bolt effects (namely ruby and diamond). Add the hydra fang and the tail to the lance to make the Ouroborosian/Brimstone Lance. The tail will be consumed after X amount of charges like how whips are consumed by the abyssal tentacle.
Pros: - gives the tail a sink/use and has some nice lore to fit the brimstone theme - dragon hunter lance is made competitive with DHCB without overtaking the DHCB in cost effectiveness
Cons: - any buffs to the lance may devalue DHCB or the scythe both of which are arguably harder to attain when compared to the DHL
