This sticky has been created in response to the most commonly asked questions regarding the most recent game update.
Whilst we continue to gather feedback, we will add any other frequently asked questions regarding this update to this thread - you may wish to check back every now and then.
Why did you remove the quest requirement (Priest in Peril) for Morytania, when you have always said that pures choose to limit themselves?
Mod Mark: The decision to remove the quest requirement was nothing to do with pures. It was simply because we felt that asking the player to complete a quest to access such a huge area was no longer the right thing to do. This was particularly the case with regards to the wealth of activities available within Morytania- agility courses, minigames etc.
Why did you choose 96 Fishing as a requirement when nobody fishes in Morytania?
Mod Maz: I wanted a high level skill in the 90s, and one that is rarely used in Morytania, to highlight the places that you could use it. The diaries are partially about finding out things you never knew existed.
Does the 20% chance of making 4 dose prayer renewal stack with the bonus for wearing 3 pieces of factory outfit?
Mod Maz: Yes, it does stack.
Do the Temple Trekking improved rewards work with reward tokens that were banked before the update?
Mod Maz: Yes it does, assuming you have earned the rewards.
Due to some complaints regarding the ghast task taking too long, do you have any intention of changing/removing this task?
Mod Maz: Nope. It was put in primarily for its strong connection to the area, and it's summoning level.
Mod Edam: No plans to change this. Diaries have included minigames in the past. Since the rework, there’s plenty of reasons to do Temple Trekking and compared to some of the other tasks (training farming, rc, fishing etc to the required level) it takes less time to complete.
Since there is a Bloodwood tree in Darkmeyer, why didn't you make a task for it? The bolts have some high level requirements to make.
Mod Maz: This is because this content didn't exist when the achievement diary was in its design and main development phase.
Mod Edam: It would have been a great task to include. However, as Maz says, it was too late in the achievement diary’s production cycle to add it.
Why wasn't Mos Le' Harmless and Braindeath Island included?
Mod Maz: These aren't part of the Morytania area as far as the diaries are concerned. Don't worry, they will be included in a diary, just not this one.
What will happen when every slot has an item? Will extensions be made to current items i.e. like the slayer helmet?
Mod Maz: Not saying. That would be a spoiler!
This seemed like a very good opportunity to give Ecto-tokens some kind of use. Why did this not happen?
Mod Maz: None of the suggested uses that we came up with really fit the achievement diary structure of rewards. This doesn't preclude some future content that would do so though.
