[00:07] [Music]
[00:11] hello alright for waiting
[00:17] we had some minor technical issues and
[00:19] they turned out to be slightly more than
[00:21] minor but it's all good now and I am
[00:24] delighted to welcome you all into the
[00:26] hall and bring on mod mark who is going
[00:30] to deliver all of the awesome updates
[00:33] that we have coming in runescape you've
[00:35] already heard everything that old school
[00:36] are planning for the next 12 months and
[00:37] there are some incredible pieces that
[00:39] you have the chance to play and now
[00:41] we're going to say what's available in
[00:43] runescape can you please shout and roar
[00:45] for mod mark
[00:48] [Music]
[00:57] hello everyone I hope everyone is having
[01:00] an amazing room fifth and that you've
[01:02] had a chance to check out the beta for
[01:05] runescape mobile now for those of you
[01:07] that don't know right now
[01:10] well flows of you at home I should say
[01:12] because obviously all of you have been
[01:14] up there playing it right now we've got
[01:16] old school and runescape running on a
[01:19] mobile giving our mega fans here at
[01:22] runefest the first chance to play their
[01:24] proper real accounts via a mobile device
[01:28] now this joy will be coming to everybody
[01:31] very soon with old school being
[01:33] accessible later on this year and
[01:35] runescape following shortly after in
[01:38] 2018 it's really a new age of connect
[01:41] ability giving you the chance to play
[01:43] your favorite game anywhere you like and
[01:46] stay in contact with your friends
[01:47] anywhere you want but importantly this
[01:50] has inspired us to line up a pretty
[01:53] crazy rest of 2017 and a very exciting
[01:56] bunch of new updates for 2018 which I'd
[01:59] like to talk to you about now now as mod
[02:04] Osborne told us earlier on in the year
[02:06] and actually it's really sad that he's
[02:10] not here today the events really not the
[02:12] same without him so Dave if you're at
[02:14] home listening I hope your family get
[02:16] better soon we love you let's give him a
[02:18] round of applause
[02:19] [Applause]
[02:25] so as he told us earlier on in the year
[02:30] our main focus right now is unfinished
[02:32] business but what does that mean so it's
[02:34] all about giving you the things that you
[02:36] really want the things that we've talked
[02:38] about in the past the promises that
[02:41] we've made to you and we want to deliver
[02:43] those things however life is pretty
[02:47] boring if you know exactly what's around
[02:49] the corner we've also said previously
[02:51] that we'll continue making updates that
[02:53] have the capacity to surprise and
[02:55] delight you things that you never knew
[02:58] you wanted until they've been part
[03:00] become part of your runescape lives like
[03:02] dungeoneering which came second to
[03:04] Slayer in the recent survey of most
[03:07] favorite skill in the game now while I
[03:09] know there's plenty of you that keep
[03:10] telling me it's a mini game and not a
[03:12] skill you certainly really seem to like
[03:15] it even years after its launch the
[03:17] surprise and the wow factor the social
[03:21] game play the fundamentally different
[03:23] mood that you approach that sort of game
[03:25] play with is part of its success so it's
[03:29] up to us to keep a good mix of those old
[03:31] promises shiny new updates secrets and
[03:34] the things that you want more than
[03:37] anything and the updates I'm going to
[03:39] talk to you about hopefully hit that
[03:40] right mix of course we need your
[03:43] feedback so make them as good as they
[03:44] can be we know that together we're at
[03:47] our strongest and we ran another massive
[03:51] survey back in the summer so throughout
[03:53] this I'll be sharing some of those
[03:55] results with you from the survey and
[03:57] show you how they've shaped help the few
[03:59] firm helped shape the future it's
[04:02] important to note that every single
[04:03] update I'm going to talk to you about
[04:06] that fan is not doing good things to
[04:09] this book every single update I'm going
[04:12] to talk to you about now in this folks
[04:14] the first section is something that
[04:15] we're actively working on now these are
[04:17] real updates hitting the game within the
[04:20] next six months so very much falling
[04:24] into the unfinished business section and
[04:26] receiving a very strong mention when I
[04:29] first talked about it was a close crawl
[04:31] rework
[04:34] antolín unprompted cheers that's always
[04:37] good so last year it was the ninth most
[04:40] wanted update and it's finally coming
[04:42] this winter and it's a pretty chunky
[04:45] update we'll be introducing a new master
[04:48] tier of clue Scrolls to satisfy the
[04:50] greatest of the greatest level of scroll
[04:54] hunters of course they'll be some unique
[04:56] rewards as well in these caskets so
[04:58] let's take a quick look at them now
[05:01] first up is a mega rare sure to be of
[05:05] interest of the merchants out there and
[05:07] that is some second age outfits now
[05:12] these are based on the kind of gear that
[05:14] you might have seen back when the gods
[05:15] first showed up and Zara's Empire was at
[05:18] its strongest but as you can see this is
[05:21] pretty heavily inspired and influenced
[05:24] by saradomin and most runescape
[05:26] historians seem to forget the fact that
[05:28] saradomin was a pretty major player back
[05:31] in the second age with his followers
[05:32] very wearing gear very similar to this
[05:35] and next up let's hope this place is a
[05:42] cosmetic override similar to auras that
[05:45] well set your swords on fire
[05:50] it can be applied to all swords even
[05:52] those on your offhand slot you can also
[05:55] see the new ice dye here excellent you
[06:02] can also see the new ice dye capable of
[06:04] making your precious gear look even more
[06:06] shiny pretty cool do you like that nice
[06:13] we've also got a unique clue scroll
[06:17] outfit that will help you solve the
[06:19] puzzles that they contain a perfect
[06:22] outfit for the adventurer types out
[06:23] there and it's certainly one of my
[06:25] favorites we're also adding a collection
[06:28] log for all the scrolls that you
[06:30] complete after the launch so you can see
[06:32] just how you've done over time now we're
[06:35] still planning to do the cool reward
[06:37] footprints that I talked about last year
[06:39] but this needs some pretty complex work
[06:41] that I my poor little brain couldn't
[06:43] hope to understand and it will take a
[06:46] while before we're able to do that as we
[06:48] prioritize other projects but it is
[06:49] coming we won't be neglecting the lower
[06:53] tiers of clues Scrolls either we've got
[06:56] several improvements underway across all
[06:58] tiers not least a wide-scale rebalance
[07:01] of rewards so make them all more
[07:03] valuable and more worth your time and
[07:05] we'll also be taking a leaf from the old
[07:07] school book and adding stash locations
[07:09] for you all which which will allow you
[07:13] to store clue scroll specific outfits
[07:15] and gear to help you solve solve the
[07:17] pesky outfit puzzles and we're changing
[07:20] the limitations how many scrolls and
[07:22] caskets you can hold at any one time
[07:24] meaning that you can do those call
[07:26] opening 100 casket videos that you've
[07:29] been wanting to do for ages now back
[07:33] when yo C first launched the old found
[07:36] weaponry was one of the coolest things
[07:38] about it and at that time we talked
[07:40] about ways for skillers to benefit from
[07:43] that offhand slot we did a bit of that
[07:46] with the catalyst fragment which is the
[07:49] reward from Cisco's endgame but really
[07:52] that was just the start
[07:54] sadly you let us know that you're
[07:56] wielding pickaxes was a bit silly and we
[08:00] wouldn't want anything silly in
[08:01] runescape would we yes
[08:03] talking about you you crazy shark has--
[08:08] we will be adding more skilling offhand
[08:11] items which will come in the form of
[08:13] magical relics each relic has that one
[08:23] that was prompted though that didn't
[08:26] work so well you'll have to be quicker
[08:28] next time
[08:28] each relic has a theme attached to it
[08:31] like a sacrifice theme that damages you
[08:33] or even kills you in return for even
[08:36] more us or a restoration theme that
[08:39] buffs your skilling potions or regrowth
[08:41] locations or a time theme to help you
[08:44] IFK more complex training methods or an
[08:46] elemental theme even a destruction theme
[08:49] to annihilate the resources that you
[08:51] gather for alternative rewards now each
[08:54] relic and the catalyst fragment can be
[08:57] augmented with the invention skill to
[08:59] allow you to add skilling perks and will
[09:01] give set effects for skilling outfits
[09:03] when used with the appropriate gear so
[09:07] this update will give skill as another
[09:09] edge to their training and we'll be
[09:11] adding more offhand skilling items in
[09:13] the future even a special heroic elven
[09:17] item with some associated law and quests
[09:20] like content like people like good so
[09:26] scaling off hands are planned to be
[09:28] added to some other older pieces of
[09:31] content to enrich their drop tables and
[09:34] give you more reason to return to some
[09:36] beloved but neglected areas of the world
[09:39] now if you're anything like me you'll
[09:42] love a beer festival and actually the
[09:45] night before party was a bit of a crazy
[09:47] beer festival for most of us now right
[09:50] now our German players in Munich have
[09:52] got the perfect excuse for not being
[09:53] here they're busy celebrating
[09:55] Oktoberfest which is the greatest beer
[09:57] festival in the world and is the
[10:00] inspiration for the next update I want
[10:02] to talk about so
[10:05] [Laughter]
[10:12] since the beginning of time Lumbridge
[10:15] has seen its fair share of action be it
[10:18] goblins and goblin invasions birthdays
[10:20] Restless ghosts warring gods prawn
[10:22] bosses or sandcastle contests but it's
[10:25] time to forget all that and raise a
[10:26] glass to nob tomba love always following
[10:31] that why do we make such crazy names for
[10:34] things I don't know raise a glass to
[10:36] know of tumblr fest the first alan our
[10:39] annual Gillen or beer festival it's the
[10:49] ultimate in Bavarian celebrations as we
[10:51] lock arms with Alfred grim hands over
[10:53] fifteen and a half years since the
[10:55] original barbarian bar crawl it's a huge
[10:58] party in the lumbridge crater complete
[11:00] with table dancing and a brand new crawl
[11:02] across the world you'll also be able to
[11:05] try table dancing and I said that you'll
[11:15] also be able to try out a brand new
[11:17] seasonal minigame called kegger where
[11:19] you'll be practicing your bartending
[11:21] skills for some epic loot thigh slapping
[11:24] outfits huge tankards wool pretenders
[11:27] barrel pets dance emotes and will chuck
[11:30] in a bit of XP in there - no Tama Fest
[11:33] is the best way to relax after a heavy
[11:36] XP session so get stuck in because
[11:38] there's really not long to wait for that
[11:40] one
[11:42] so Skilling pets were also in last
[11:45] year's polls
[11:46] [Applause]
[11:52] reaching the top 10 so let's take a look
[11:56] at what these new combat skill pets will
[11:58] look like when they come out this year
[12:02] so all these concepts are based on
[12:05] player suggestions and designs and it
[12:07] looks like there's some childhood
[12:08] Pokemon love creeping in there from some
[12:10] of the artists but I really love that
[12:13] kangaroo there's also these two page
[12:16] pieces of player made artwork so good
[12:18] that our concept team couldn't really
[12:20] improve them and their concepts that
[12:22] focus on ranging and constitution so oh
[12:36] no there's not
[12:38] not a lot a constitution firm there I
[12:42] love a big update this year related to
[12:45] quests and which storylines
[12:50] this these guys I'm here they don't
[12:53] care about quest too much that was very
[12:55] quiet though you like quests I like it
[13:02] and we've storylines you'd like us to
[13:04] work on next so the majority of you
[13:08] wanted us to finish fifth page
[13:10] storylines with almost 60% of the votes
[13:13] and all of those fifth aged storylines
[13:16] gnomes pirates and Slayer stories
[13:18] narrowly came out in the top three but
[13:20] it's pretty close so after scanning the
[13:23] horizon for seagulls and checking under
[13:26] the bed for zombie heads we decided to
[13:29] do that the pirate quest would be the
[13:31] next thing that we work on as you can
[13:40] see this is called pieces of hate and
[13:42] it's a fitting finale for rabid Jack an
[13:46] investigation into horrific nurse with
[13:48] crazy puzzle solving and crazy madness
[13:53] jokes rum-soaked
[13:54] sailors filled with nostalgia and packed
[13:57] full of nautical action it seems that
[14:02] the crass E&C creatures and Krakens have
[14:05] been roped into part of rabid Jack's
[14:06] plans and you'll find yourself exploring
[14:09] ex dragonkin temples underwater using
[14:12] your trusty diving gear and more besides
[14:15] and of course your cross-dressing zombie
[14:18] head friend and I reckon I'm the first
[14:21] person to string those particular words
[14:22] together um has plenty of Secrets to
[14:25] divulge leaving you to reunite the
[14:28] pirate captains and take down rabid Jack
[14:31] forever
[14:35] and of course don't forget we've got the
[14:38] evil Dave quest coming out too so look
[14:41] out for some so please so please there's
[14:48] love for evil Dave so look out for some
[14:51] equally absurd combinations of words in
[14:53] that one
[14:54] now often people forget those Skilling
[14:57] activities are supposed to be fun when
[15:00] we read comments on the forums it always
[15:02] seems to be about XP returned and
[15:04] rewards or at least that's what it
[15:07] looked like surprisingly the server you
[15:11] filled in told us that actually fun was
[15:13] the most important thing to you guys
[15:14] when training skills
[15:15] well that is music to our ears and it
[15:19] fits in nicely with a five-year plan we
[15:21] have to make skilling more enjoyable and
[15:24] part of that plan is to make content
[15:27] more sociable more enjoyable when
[15:29] experienced with others and the first
[15:31] update with that mantra is called
[15:33] deep-sea fishing now this is the
[15:39] spiritual successor to the fishing
[15:41] trawler how many of you remember the
[15:43] fishing trawler or actually I think we
[15:47] call it bucket escapes back in the day
[15:50] now this update will see players
[15:52] catching boats with plenty of other
[15:54] players out into the ocean sailing to
[15:56] different fishing hotspots that change
[15:58] weekly each spot has different effects
[16:03] and different source of gameplay
[16:04] available meaning that you might end up
[16:06] with your favorite locations with the
[16:08] combination of features that are just
[16:10] right for you the gameplay is far more
[16:14] frantic similar to the trawler and
[16:17] combining up with your friends will
[16:18] bring the greatest rewards now you can
[16:21] if you want just tag along for the ride
[16:23] because we've added some special net
[16:25] fish and chill spots for those of you
[16:27] that just want to kick back and watch
[16:29] now the gameplay I love that phrase I'm
[16:32] happy with that one now look I hope they
[16:35] call it that in the game as well maybe
[16:38] I'll wear anyway the gameplay will bring
[16:41] multiple levels of player together
[16:43] ensuring there's always a boat available
[16:45] when your fancier dip now of course with
[16:47] more effort comes more XP with the long
[16:50] term plan to have effort and fun as a
[16:52] viable alternative to grind for every
[16:55] skill in the future another another
[16:59] skilling update that I want to talk
[17:01] about is safecracking so this is an
[17:06] expansion to the Thieves Guild you guys
[17:11] are just happy about everything so yeah
[17:20] a very interesting way of leveling up
[17:22] the most dastardly of skills so you'll
[17:24] travel to the one you'll travel across
[17:26] the world to the most lucrative castles
[17:28] and keeps looting their Treasuries and
[17:31] filling up your swag bag dodging
[17:33] security and medieval alarm systems then
[17:37] returning to the guild to fence your
[17:39] goods each Treasury also holds legendary
[17:43] items things so precious to the things
[17:45] guild but they want to display them for
[17:48] every up-and-coming rascal to see each
[17:52] legendary treasure acts as a perk for
[17:55] thievery much like the prawn brokers or
[17:57] memorial to gothics
[17:59] and is worth a bucket load of XP and han
[18:02] key points in fact there's a brand new
[18:04] tier of Han key points and the reward
[18:06] shop items available to the successful
[18:08] looters helping you optimize further
[18:10] your thieving training with additional
[18:13] loot bags and better safe cracking
[18:15] techniques and all sorts of things that
[18:18] improve your other thieving methods as
[18:20] well
[18:20] now this updates targets thieves around
[18:24] level 65 to 95 but for those of you with
[18:27] 99 thieving already and just put your
[18:30] hand up if you've got nine thieving
[18:34] yeah we're totally doing this yeah so
[18:38] anyway you guys
[18:40] the legendary thieves will get a boost
[18:41] as soon as you arrive because well
[18:43] you're awesome so back to the survey
[18:47] then we asked you how much you cared
[18:49] about Slayer to 120 and how much you
[18:52] wanted those gaps to be filled and
[18:56] actually over 70 percent of you said yes
[18:59] please even those who didn't even have
[19:01] the levels yet wanted it to happen
[19:04] in fact you told us the slaying mobs was
[19:07] your favorite sort of content in the
[19:08] game with bossing coming second far
[19:12] ahead of minigame combat or PvP in fact
[19:15] Slayer was by far the most popular skill
[19:18] overall I mean look at that I always
[19:26] wanted to do that yeah crazy like
[19:29] absurdly popular it doesn't add up
[19:37] yeah that's a very good point actually
[19:42] so like so if you just ignore those
[19:45] numbers at the bottom and you just look
[19:47] at it like a sexy bar graph it's much
[19:50] fun there is indeed more than nine
[19:56] skills in the game well done you
[20:00] so as you can see Slayer was by far the
[20:05] most popular skill this felt like the
[20:07] perfect opportunity to bring together
[20:09] those unfinished promises of new lands
[20:11] to explore the current need for Slayer
[20:14] mobs and to bring something new and
[20:16] special to the table so ladies and
[20:20] gentlemen I bring to you the lost Grove
[20:24] this occupies over ten map squares which
[20:29] is even bigger than proof dinners the
[20:33] last Grove is an island off the coast of
[20:35] the west of the game world accessible
[20:37] from the poisoned swamps imagine if you
[20:41] will a dark thick canopy over an ancient
[20:45] forest older than the elf woods or the
[20:49] spirit trees and its center sits a huge
[20:52] magnificent oak with its roots so deep
[20:56] they entwine the heart of the planet tap
[20:59] directly into and very much parts of the
[21:02] anima various creatures call this place
[21:14] home like fairies and wisps but for now
[21:17] let's concentrate on these bark clad
[21:20] badasses now whilst they've got a kind
[21:24] of cute look about them they're far from
[21:27] it sitting proudly at 104 106 and 108
[21:30] slayer these critters which each sit on
[21:33] a point on the combat triangle a part of
[21:35] the Grove and will be in-game next week
[21:45] and these guys are in part inspired by
[21:49] the old lost Giants which were released
[21:51] back in 2001 and each has its own unique
[21:55] challenge now the unique dropped from
[21:58] these guys are going to be the cinder
[22:00] bein gloves which is some cracking new
[22:02] hybrid gloves that sit at tr-85 they can
[22:07] apply a basic poison in combat which can
[22:10] be enhanced by other means now obviously
[22:12] a massive area like that is gonna have
[22:14] more content in it than just some mobs
[22:16] right well we're adding a few more
[22:19] things for you to discover while you
[22:20] explore the place like a new weekly D&D
[22:23] focus around farming and hunter skills
[22:25] and then there's this guy a brand new
[22:30] boss monster sonic sonic that's just the
[22:37] picture Sarlacc is this I'm just going
[22:40] to put the picture on because I really
[22:43] like that now Sonic is this year's
[22:51] vicious new boss monster following in
[22:53] the giant footsteps of tellus and Virago
[22:56] and strongly associated with the Alamo
[22:59] just like them as if the anima is
[23:02] assembling some kind of super team of
[23:04] its greatest warriors for the world
[23:06] ending fights to come Sarlacc will be
[23:10] the toughest boss monster on launch
[23:12] adding added to the game slightly after
[23:15] the Slayer mobs targeting groups of up
[23:17] to 7 people now I know we say it will be
[23:21] tough but we're aiming to kill thousands
[23:23] of you I want to kill at least all of
[23:24] you guys now you will die lot the battle
[23:35] will be insane requiring the best
[23:37] teamwork and coordination
[23:39] since rates needing to master a
[23:43] completely different approach to boss
[23:45] fighting now he's a huge albeit
[23:49] unwilling guardian of gothics who
[23:52] defends the islands from those that want
[23:54] its
[23:54] power now back in the second age Saren
[23:57] sent a group of elite elf warriors to
[24:00] help in this divine task with betrayal
[24:03] leading to one of those elves being
[24:05] consumed by solak and the island
[24:08] disappearing into the mists of time over
[24:12] four eight years have passed since that
[24:14] fateful fight with Solek now both
[24:17] Guardian and twisted elf spirit your job
[24:21] is to split that infectious mental
[24:23] parasites and restore solid now when the
[24:26] fight itself we're going for a different
[24:28] vibe than normal with Solak performing
[24:30] new some attacks rather than the
[24:32] standard boss affair and after a set
[24:34] number of sub attacks he moves on to his
[24:36] next phase performing specific steps
[24:39] that must be stopped
[24:40] growing in power if not you'll find
[24:42] yourself battling up in the canopy down
[24:45] on the forest floor and around the giant
[24:47] tree itself with both players and CELAC
[24:49] using the environment to their advantage
[24:52] during the fight each phase are just so
[25:00] you know the player I think comes up
[25:02] just under his knee yes each phase has a
[25:08] more narrative feel to it than normal
[25:10] fights with individual members of the
[25:13] player team being called out to beat the
[25:14] challenge at different points in the
[25:16] fight and this means that each player
[25:18] has a role handling various different
[25:20] buffs and stacks of their own with less
[25:23] focus on tank and spank and more on the
[25:25] evolving team nature of the fight
[25:29] another key phrase there you'll even
[25:33] have to target different sections of
[25:35] Solek managing multiple health bars and
[25:37] as his arms and legs and body become
[25:40] revealed during the fight
[25:44] sorry can I describe his appearance
[25:49] regard the screen I've got a great
[25:58] screen just here guys missed his chance
[26:02] for fame
[26:05] where are they we've also got a special
[26:08] duo mode available for those of us who
[26:10] like to battle with just one buddy and
[26:12] the fight has a plenty of unique rewards
[26:14] on offer two drops like the new tier 92
[26:19] dual wield crossbows with special ammo
[26:22] also available from the Slayer monsters
[26:24] on the island and and a brand new boss
[26:33] pair as well and now I know the tricky
[26:37] combat isn't everyone's cup of tea so
[26:40] we're also making some pretty bold
[26:41] changes to revolution mode for those of
[26:44] you who prefer the easy life so check
[26:46] out the combat talk later on the day for
[26:49] more information on that now the next
[26:51] update we're going to talk about will go
[26:53] back to the polls now you told us you
[26:56] wanted to see more unique game modes
[26:58] following on from the dead man mode that
[27:01] proved so popular in old-school
[27:03] continues to prove popular and the
[27:05] experimental dark skate that we tried a
[27:07] few years ago our clan dark skate this
[27:09] the bit for you right
[27:12] the pulse or global quests and PVM
[27:16] survival modes come out on top so we've
[27:19] taken that as inspiration and develop
[27:21] something called dimension of the damned
[27:24] play video
[28:32] so--that's is the mention of the times
[28:35] which is available to bump free-to-play
[28:37] and members so this is a new cooperative
[28:40] game mode which will see you controlling
[28:42] a special maxed out version of your
[28:45] character in a version of the world
[28:46] where everyone is dead taking place in
[28:49] the free area you'll find yourself based
[28:51] in falador in a dark ominous parallel
[28:54] universe where beyond the city walls
[28:55] zombies spawn everywhere you'll need to
[28:59] defend yourself from these abominations
[29:00] as you gather the raw materials that you
[29:02] need to kick yourself out in the best
[29:04] gear that you can muster with different
[29:07] zombie types including bottle monsters
[29:09] designed for fights with up to 10 people
[29:11] plaguing your every step now you can set
[29:14] up little barricades like the ones in
[29:16] castle walls to protect you and your
[29:18] friends while skilling or
[29:20] even use them to grief your fellow
[29:22] zombie hunters you can get power-ups and
[29:25] unique equipment from those bosses
[29:26] racking up points as you kill your
[29:29] enemies and these points can be used to
[29:31] buy loot boxes from falador and the
[29:35] players with the highest points earn a
[29:37] special invitation to the unique endgame
[29:40] so this to our end game which takes
[29:42] place on the final weekend of dimension
[29:45] of the Damned
[29:46] which is planned to happen in October
[29:47] this year features a perma death mode
[29:50] and a freshly white score players with
[29:52] the lowest scores are eliminated over
[29:54] time the world grown smaller and smaller
[29:57] with more enemies spawning until finally
[29:59] one player remains earning unique prizes
[30:03] at the end now this is designed to be a
[30:06] new player friendly experience as well
[30:08] with accounts obviously all at max level
[30:11] so it's the perfect time to team up with
[30:13] those low level bugs even brand new
[30:16] runescape players since the whole update
[30:18] is completely free in fact we've got the
[30:22] perfect update if it's team going place
[30:24] that you're after something that would
[30:26] be different
[30:27] straight out of Tony Stark's basement
[30:29] it's a group Ironman updates
[30:36] now whilst being an Ironman is the
[30:39] ultimate challenge
[30:40] beyond those crazy level three Pure's
[30:43] it's a solitary life naval never able to
[30:46] run those five man dungeons or join in
[30:48] with boss fights
[30:49] well now you can make some brand new
[30:51] accounts and get together with your iron
[30:54] mates working as a team able to interact
[30:57] fully with each other trading playing
[30:59] fighting socializing to your heart's
[31:01] content so that is all the content that
[31:06] we've got in development right now
[31:08] updates you can expect to see in the
[31:10] next six months
[31:11] let's not spin that's not empty promises
[31:15] trust me this is real actual content
[31:18] that you'll be playing with very soon so
[31:21] what haven't we talked about well the
[31:23] biggest unfinished business is perhaps
[31:25] the bank rework folks here don't tear
[31:32] just yet it's still I know I'm sorry
[31:36] it's still one of our top priorities and
[31:38] genuinely we are very sorry that you
[31:41] haven't got hold of it yet hand on heart
[31:42] is something that we've woefully
[31:44] underestimated and it's important for us
[31:46] to be honest with you the work involved
[31:49] with the bank stuff is involving seven
[31:53] teams across multiple products and we
[31:57] want it so much but we refuse to give
[31:59] you something half-baked because you
[32:01] don't want that it needs to be done
[32:03] properly and I'm sorry but for that
[32:06] we're going to have to wait now perhaps
[32:08] the same can be said for mining and
[32:10] smithing we share your pain we want that
[32:13] to be the best it can be and you've told
[32:15] us quite clearly in the latest in-game
[32:17] poll that anything other than a complete
[32:20] rework just won't do no excitingly I can
[32:29] reveal that proper development work has
[32:31] finally started on mining and smithing
[32:34] last week we're done talking about it so
[32:37] we're just going to do it now we want to
[32:40] be even more ambitious than that some of
[32:43] the more ambitious than some of the
[32:44] things that I've been talking about here
[32:46] we're still dreamers at high
[32:47] dreaming of the perfect runescape we're
[32:49] busy experimenting we haven't forgotten
[32:52] about weather but we've taken it in a
[32:53] slightly different direction playing
[32:55] around with ambitious projects like
[32:57] day/night cycles and the gameplay that
[32:59] that might bring instead we're always
[33:03] playing around with new ideas like
[33:05] letting you become a Slayer master
[33:07] issuing tasks to NPCs earning points
[33:10] based on how successful your students
[33:12] are we're even playing around with new
[33:15] boss monsters beyond Sonic like what it
[33:18] might be like to destroy a demon king
[33:20] from the inside there's plenty of other
[33:23] ideas that we're tinking around with at
[33:24] the moment not least some pretty crazy
[33:27] quests as we consider the ominous future
[33:29] of the Elder Gods and you'll have to
[33:31] watch the Lord talk later on in the
[33:33] circus tent if you're hungry to know
[33:35] more but let's not create more
[33:37] unfinished business by talking too far
[33:40] ahead well apart from one thing perhaps
[33:44] our biggest ambition is with clans now
[33:52] 70% of you I'm pretty sure the stats are
[33:55] right on that one 70% of you are members
[33:59] of the clan and while it's not something
[34:01] that we're working on today it's
[34:03] something the whole studio want to see
[34:04] in development for 2018 we want
[34:07] runescape to be more social and if it's
[34:09] the 5 year and it's the 5 year plan
[34:12] with skills becoming more social is the
[34:14] tip of that iceberg
[34:15] then the clan content is the bulk of
[34:18] that action we know that we can make
[34:22] individual updates more social and
[34:24] plenty of the updates that I've talked
[34:27] about have that in spades but across the
[34:29] existing game we want you to benefit
[34:31] from each other's company especially in
[34:35] clans we dream of clan benefits being
[34:38] more than just an XP buff with the
[34:39] capacity to welcome noobs in a
[34:42] meaningful beneficial way we want
[34:44] high-level players to be proud of their
[34:46] clan sigil and make clans easier to
[34:48] manage and organize for their clan
[34:51] leaders we challenge every single one of
[34:54] our staff to think in a more social way
[34:56] to be more player obsessed than we
[34:59] currently are so make a gay
[35:01] we can all be proud to call home
[35:03] together thanks very much
[35:07] [Applause]
[35:19] [Music]
[35:22] you
