Hello all,

 

With the release of Runelite coming very quickly we wanted to post a content poll to gather input from the community on some potential changes and content to be added in the coming future.

 

Keep in mind the Chambers of Xeric and Theatre of Blood changes/reworks are the first thing on our agenda once we wrap up with Runelite. This was announced a while back in a development blog that can be found here, but was pushed back so that we could focus on getting Runelite fully integrated.

 

With that being said, we look forward to your feedback and opinions on the poll.

 

Poll Questions & Information

 

Question 1:

Should the Theatre of Blood be changed to a dangerous death for Hardcore Ironmen?

 

- This would result in the loss of hardcore status upon death in the Theatre of Blood

 

 

Question 2:

Should Ordan's Ore Shop be added at the Blast Furnace?

 

- This shop would be available to players of all game modes, thus allowing Ironman accounts to buy ore.

- More info on Ordan and his shop can be seen on the OSRS Wiki here.

 

 

Question 3:

Should the Easter Ring be made tradeable?

 

- The Easter Ring is currently untradeable item that can be received from limited edition Easter Boxes from the Alora Store.

- Outside of the limited edition boxes the ring was only obtainable from the 2017 Easter Event.

 

 

Question 4:

Should the Item Retrieval Service (Death Storage) at Hespori be implemented?

 

- Currently, Hespori is not instanced so upon death you are able to go pick up your items in the Hespori Cave. Implementing the Item Retrieval Service would require making Hespori instanced.

- If implemented, upon death player's items would go to Arno, an NPC near the Hespori Cave, and will require a fee in order to get your items back. This death storage works similar to the one at Zulrah, however you are able to select which particular items you'd like back making it quite useful for Ultimate Ironmen.

- Note that if you die a dangerous death while items are in storage they will be lost.

 

 

Question 5:

Should the teleports in the Teleport Wizard menu be rearranged into alphabetical order?

 

 

Question 6:

Should the Bloodhound pet be made obtainable as a Master Treasure Trail (Clue) reward?

 

- This would result in the removal of any Bloodhounds currently in the game similar to how we reworked Third Age previously.

- The Bloodhound would no longer be able to be obtained from the Vote Shop

 

 

Question 7:

Should we allow the ability to create instances for the Nightmare of Ashihama?

 

 

Please take the time to read the content post and vote in the poll. If you have any additional feedback, comments, questions, etc. please make a comment below.

 

If you have any other suggestions that you like to see added to Alora you can do so in a post here.

 

Additionally, any bug reports can be submitted here.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Mack

Alora Administration Team

As much as i'd like to vote yes for the first question, I believe a rework for the raid needs to be done with it being tested to have 0 bugs. If not players will most likely die to bugs and will have to be given status back.

Yes, let's make tob which has an abnormal amount of dead clicks and lag in verzik's room an unsafe death. Great idea.

It might be a good idea to wipe all existing hcim tob drops from their accounts too, to make it fair for the others.

I do not support adding the ore shop for ironmen and realism players.  Currently, it is a good challenge to seek out bosses that drop noted ores.  A player, for example, may take on the challenge, trek into the wilderness, and slaughter Venenatis for 300 noted gold ore drops.  Allowing players to simply buy ore takes away from that healthy challenge, but I guess I could support it if quantities in stock are limited to just 100, like on OSRS.

 

Also, unless farmer's outfit is being added as a drop from Hespori, I don't really see the need for item retrieval service.  Hespori currently only has 1 rare drop, bottomless compost bucket, along with regular anima seeds.  It takes so long to grow that no player has even killed Hespori 200 times yet.  In my opinion, it makes much more sense to first implement item retrieval service to more heavily-used content such as Kraken.

 

In future polls, I'd like see what the community thinks about...

 

Should recoloring slayer helms be changed to a 1 time fee of 1,000 slayer points?  Currently, it costs 1,000 slayer points to unlock each color.

I assume the item retrieval thing is mainly to match osrs and give UIM another place to store items.

I have a lot of mixed feelings for the first question..

 

Over all I would like to see it unsafe for hardcores, but as for right now I voted that it should remain a safe death.  Until the mass amount of dead clicks, visual bugs, maze issues, nylocas hit boxes, and much more get fixed it should remain a safe death.  Now, I know that majority of the players right now are voting for it to be an unsafe death, and from my perspective when there's people like myself with ~750 kc, Vespina with 2k kc, Elite with 1k kc saying that it's best not to have this as an unsafe death then it must mean something.  

 

This may come off as offensive, but if you don't have 250+ KC here, then you have not experienced half the issues that TOB has.

 

EDIT: I'd also like to say I'm aware TOB would be reworked prior to the death rework, but I'd rather wait on the poll after the rework to input my final thoughts.

All of these suggestions look good but if I could make a counter suggestion, one of the ones I voted no to was the teleport wizard interface becoming alphabetical, I like the way it is now however, I would like to see you be able to add 3, 4 or even 5 "favorite" teleports that could be on a separate interface, would be a nice qol to help speed up getting to popular slayer locations, and other various activities such as birdhouse runs!

 

 

EDIT: You probably want my input on the tob being unsafe. I would like to see it touched up a bit before I vote yes to this. people say dead clicks etc etc and while that is a concern at verzik, simple stuff like 
Bloat when he's standing back up has a chance to hit you (I assume it's by an invisible falling hand) which can be tick ate, but if you're not looking and not expecting a hand to fall, bye bye hardcore status. 

Exiting the maze at sotoseg and you get an invisible ball and don't realize, good bye hardcore status. 

Currently there's no way to teleport out of a tob and if your party wipes it is impossible to log out on any boss, you're in combat every second. I don't know what happens in osrs but if all of your pillars collapse on nylos your party wipes, would that be a death? (Can't confirm as I don't know what happens on oldschool) I would like to see the teleport crystal (purchasable for 1,000,000 gp) added as a means to get out in an instant.

 

When raids is reworked later this year I'll gladly change my stance if I feel I wouldn't die to an unintended mechanic.

I answered all questions in the poll just so none were left blank, but I only want to touch up on the following questions.

 

Question 1:

Should the Theatre of Blood be changed to a dangerous death for Hardcore Ironmen?

 

This is how it is in OSRS, So I feel that's how it should be. But I think that people who are already HC in-game should be the ones deciding, not the people who don't play it

 

 

Question 5:

Should the teleports in the Teleport Wizard menu be rearranged into alphabetical order?

 

New players will adapt to the current teleports WAY easier then veteran players having to adapt just because of some peoples OCD. I think it should stay as is.

 

 

Question 6:

Should the Bloodhound pet be made obtainable as a Master Treasure Trail (Clue) reward?

 

Absolutely, no questions asked, its in OSRS. This should of been implemented upon master clue release.

 

 

Question 7:

Should we allow the ability to create instances for the Nightmare of Ashihama?

 

I do not personally do nightmare, but I have heard from countless people that they want this. And, well, I AM FOR THE PEOPLE!

Please lower the nightmare spawn time once the countdown begins to something like 10 seconds. Currently you have to wait for the countdown to begin, then wait another ~40 seconds for it to actually spawn.

I voted yes for the Tob being unsafe, however I don't think it'd be healthy right now with all the unintended bugs and "deadclicks" inside tob as @ Elite mentioned.

 

Especially with the 'invisible red ball' from soteseg that the only way to live would be pre-run to the 'dd' spot and hope someone from your team is already there to split damage, or just 'tick eat' based off muscle memory which is fairly hard to do.

 

 

 

TLDR: I'd love for it to happen, but at the same time there are a lot of bugs/deadclicks inside tob

My muscle memory is so used to the teleport mage right now. Should focus on the bigger problems and things then something trivial.

The teleport mage is easy asf for people to learn, harder for us oldies and people older to the game, that are used to the mage as its easy to work with now.

They'd still be in their respective sections as they are currently, Cities, Skilling, Dungeons, etc. They would just be in alphabetical order in each section.

Have we ever considered making a "boss & wilderness boss" tab to separate these 2, and keep all other wilderness teleports respective to their tabs at the bottom of the list.

I don't think it would be necessary to rework the interface for a separate Wilderness Boss section, we could simply keep the Wilderness boss teleports together at the bottom of the teleport list in alphabetical order as well. With the dangerous teleport prompt/warning there shouldn't be any issues if players are paying attention.
ie.
Alchemical Hydra
God Wars
Kraken
Zulrah
Callisto (Wilderness)
King Black Dragon (Wilderness)
Vetion (Wilderness)
