Posted 28 June 2018 - 1:40 AM

After some pestering via Reddit, Twitch, Discord and Twitter, Ayiza finally released the Dev blog for better rewards for the Revenant Caves. One of the main rewards that caught my eye was the Barbed Rete. This kinda reminded me of the Bolas item back in 2011. 
 

I also liked the Ring and the Amulet which made the idea of more risk=more reward concept coming back. 


Myself and ExactlyPwned from Playdead also asked Ayiza what about the Loot Keys and we got a response that they would be polled in the next BH update.


If these were to pass, do you think the Revenant Caves could be better like it was back at the beginning of the year and do y'all believe Jagex is finally trying to help out the PKing community?

Jagex could be trying to help the pk community, but they could also just be trying to keep the caves as active as they are currently by adding new items to the game. Its not something you can be 100% accurate on guessing imo.

 

I do like the idea of having a weapon added to the game similar to the oldschool item "bolas" because it gives the guys that hate maging when pking the opportunity to freeze. This could also hurt the value of the gear people pk in as well though if the wrong type of pkers get a hold of them (which they obviously will). Unless they are extremely expensive and almost not worth pking multi with I say adding the new items will be less beneficial to us as pkers minus just all around activity in the caves.

Most of these rewards only have an impact in the Wilderness, which already limits their demand. The Barbed Rete is interesting, but the mechanics don't seem to work that well in multi-PvP. You're not going to be able to reduce the freeze time if 10 people hit you as you'll never know who used it. Besides that, I like magic being the only part of the combat triangle able to freeze. Magic already has quite some downsides, so if their best ability is given to another style it's not good in the long run. The ferocious ring does seem good and it's stats might make it more of an all-round ring for DKS and Raids rather than a PvP ring.

 

All in all I think it might improve activity a little bit if these rewards really up the GP/hr rate. I don't see any of this really influencing PKing though.

I'd be fine with the return of something like bolas, but it doesn't need to be extremely accurate like a ancients freeze just to keep a balance.

Restraint is the best thing for clans IMO - it'll make revs much more viable for solo PKers as they can basically TB and barrage, and actually kill PvMers by themselves.

More solo PKers means more loot for small teams and clans, which means more action for bigger clans, etc.

Hmmm if it makes the wilderness more active I'm all for it but most of the ideas are garbage tbh

Good point, I hadn't thought of that. However, the ZGS does require special attack energy so that's a more fair trade-off, whereas the Rete only has a 15 second cooldown without any cost to it other than some ether. So all in all I would still not say it's very balanced (unless it was very inaccurate, but then nobody would use it).

Personally, I don't like the proposed ideas all that much. Seems like minimal work went into them, and it's just being used as "Hey, here you go have an update "kind of thing towards the pk community to get them off Jagex's back. As someone stated, it'll make Revs active for about a week, that's what I reckon. But hey, can't complain i guess.

Yeah same, the only thing I really enjoy is the Rete, cause it reminds me of Bolas.
