In this week’s Behind the Scenes video, we went in search of what went into the Desert Task Set (or Achievement Diary) and caught up with the QA team behind this update. They tell us what it’s like working on a project like this and what their QA process is when it comes to squishing bugs.



All this - and so much more - coming to RuneScape Soon!

Until next week!

Not sure I believe the QA testers after the blunders that went on with monsters earlier on this week. The video seemed more focused on convincing us they do test content properly when they quite clearly don't.

I swear to god if I have to kill Sunfreet again I'll never get the elite version. I absolutely REFUSE to do that again.

Can't wait for the tasks :-D

I tried Sunfreet out and it wasn't too bad. Magic has no damage cap on it so it makes it much easier than melee. Plus you don't worry about the tail hits.

Also picking cactus spines might be a task so grow them now since they do take 9 hours.

Not looking forward too grinding Dom tower because we all know it probably will be a task to get 500 kills or something like that.

It's worth noting that he's much easier in EoC (it's one thing I had never gotten around to)... Resonance heals you for like 6k health, it's insane.

And if I have to do Chocoice, I'll never get elite.

Is it sad that I got super excited when I saw Wall-E on one of the moderators desks?

Augh :wallbash: ...I have been putting off Mort tasks for too long now! Worst procrastination on it is the vyrewatch cremations.
But I do want more tasks only if the rewards are nice.
Oh so the QA does rely a lot on the players to find more bugs to squash.
