Untitled[edit source]

I think that the locations of the penguins should be edited and added every week or however long the time period is between the changes. It should be a separate, frequently updated page, similar to the GE prices etc., which should be under penguin hide and seek locations Misternice7 05:29, 3 September 2008 (UTC) Bold text

That's a good idea! I'll make a D&D Current Locations page, that'll list the penguins, circus ticket vendor, and the locations of any other event that may be added.Orbie 21:01, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
See Distractions and Diversions Locations.   az talk   21:44, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
I hate to be rude, but could someone link the Locations page as "See also" to the top? I'm editing inept :X Dorsha 03:01, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Clan chats[edit source]

Jagex just called D&D a minigame[edit source]

From Patch Notes 08/04/09 Quick find code: 15-16-742-58647357


   * After each performance in Balthazar Beauregard’s Big Top Bonanza, you will now be informed as to your experience gain for that section.
   * Fixed a typo in the Shooting Star chat.
   * The Air Guitar emote now counts toward your Circus performance.
   * Some of the empty Stealing Creation resource locations had the same examine as full versions.
   * Fixed an issue with Clan Wars where the caller would occasionally not display players’ names correctly. 

Including D&D in minigames would allow them to be listed off the main menu, and be more logical. Mamabear47 06:23, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

We need to lock editing of this from IPs[edit source]

This page has been vandalized MANY times. We need to lock this page from IP editors. Abyssal whip.png Superplayer08Talk HS Log Dragon dagger (p++).png 19:28, February 15, 2010 (UTC)Superplayer08

Shattered Heart[edit source]

Mod Maz, developer of Shattered Heart, said it is NOT a D&D in her blog post. "It’s not a D&D or minigame, but it does have repeatable elements similar to those categories of content." I removed it but someone reverted. Any thoughts on whether or not this belongs here? S3v3rian 17:32, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Skeletal Horror[edit source]

Shouldn't Skeletal Horror be listed as one of the D&Ds? o.O  Protozom Revenant dragon.png 01:13, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Evil trees claim[edit source]

This is posted under Evil Trees:

"Those who live in North America, if they time it right, can chop down 4 trees at a time"

The wording needs to be changed because "at a time" would imply "simultaneously" which is impossible to do. It should be changed to "can chop down 4 trees in a row" which, I believe, is the meaning the author intended. Furthermore, anyone around the world can hunt/chop four Evil Trees in a row if they time it right (2 before reset, 2 after reset) but they'd still have wait for a tree to spawn and/or hop worlds. So this claim, in its entirety, is a non-issue and should be removed. [[Special:Contributions/| 22:06, March 13, 2013 (UTC)]]

Tears of Guthix[edit source]

I didn't come up with the one second per QP number—it has been in the article for a long time. It may not be correct, but it is much closer to correct than's edit of one minute per QP. That would be over five and a half hours of tears per week… Qloque (talk) 09:42, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

ETA: That assertion was added to the page July 20, 2010. Qloque (talk) 09:58, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

It's one tick per QP and maxes out at 3 minutes = 300 QP. It's been on the main tears of guthix article for months at least. It also maxes out at 300 xp per tear with an ornate bowl. Assuming you can only catch 1 tear per tick (likely) you can get at most 90k xp a week from it.04ismailjj6 (talk) 11:19, June 5, 2013 (UTC) 
Yes, saw that and already updated the summary page to state 0.6sec/QP Qloque (talk) 11:21, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

D&D tokens in Treasure Hunter?[edit source]

I just removed a sentance saying you can get D&D token resets from SoF, since SoF has been replaced by Treasure Hunter. I've not heard of anyone getting a ticket from TH; is it worth saying it may possibly be a future promotion, or just edit it later should they rerelease tokens on TH?

Please tell that Distractions and Diversions were once available to members, and was one of D&D available to Free Player after update in 2015? Please tell

Article Rework[edit source]

I started reworking this article today, as it was tagged for cleanup (and definitely needed it). I have recently added a new table with information on when to play each D&D, and reformatted the list of D&Ds below that, along with some other general tidying up. I have removed the cleanup tag, as the article is looking a bit better now, but there could still be some additional work done. If anyone has specific ideas for improvements but is not sure how to implement, please let me know here and I will roll with it! Or, if you make any major changes/contributions yourself, let us all know what it was here on talk so everyone can work off each others' ideas.

Sliske's Scoreboard[edit source]

I think this should be added to weekly D&D's.

Frequency for Agoroth is incorrect[edit source]

The table on the page states that Agoroth can be fought thrice weekly. F2P players can fight him once per week, and P2P players can fight him twice per week. --Feenix Libra (talk) 00:17, September 16, 2016 (UTC)

Cheers, something must have got crossed in my head while I was skimming over their pages during the on going cleanup I'm doing. I'll get that corrected shortly. — Heaven Sent (talk) 00:30, September 16, 2016 (UTC)
