This talk page is for discussing the Update:Behind the Scenes - November (2007) page.

This looks amazing! I'm DEFINITLY going to get my grades up so I can play on weekdays! Wonder what the big update's gonna be?...RS3? NAH!7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)

Some speculation is that it's a new skill, but that's only speculation. Amaurice talk 17:53, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I would guess not RS3, given that they said they weren't working on it a while back, and I doubt they'd have had time in the meantime. I would guess a new skill. Either way, I agree - for the first time ever, I'm thinking this is going to bed a very good month. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 17:56, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't think it would be RS3 either, only because they would probably not want to put so much time and effort into updating RS2 if they were just going to release a new beta. (i.e., Edgeville, shops, etc.) Personally, I'm convinced that it will be a new continent, or a huge new part of the map at least, that will involve at least one new skill. I don't think it will be Summoning, either, since they basically did that with the Tower of Life thing. After a totally disappointing October, it's nice to see that things are finally looking up.  :) 17:35, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
A new skill would be nice. Oddly enough, that never occured to me...
Oh, and here.7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
I was just gonna post about how sweet it looks, and it seems like others have the same feelings and ideas as me. This will be AWESOME! Dragon scimitar old talk|editcount</span>19:58, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I like the idea of the new selling abilities, but I wonder if it will really beat the economy up a lot. Guess it depends on how they do it, but if I look for steel bars from 600 people, and the ones who sell for less are on top, and those who're selling for more are further down the scale, obviously, I'll buy from the cheaper source, which would be nice. On the other hand though, if I want to sell the cannonballs I make from it for a good price, it would be more difficult. Makes me nervous about how the money will flow, up or down. THe forums are ok, they do a little of the same thing, but it seems like this could make it more obvious of the differences in prices. Again, I guess it depends on how it's done. I'm really looking forward to the idea of being able to do things like cut gems for someone without the trust concerns. Also, I'm betting the new update is a new skill, or a new spellbook, or something along those lines. Probably something that people have been asking for or have implied they've wanted for some time now. We'll have to see :o) Crafting TIRRIANGANT (TALK) 20:06, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

The new update is going to be horses.Ossell 00:40, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Why would it be horses? I doubt it would be so. A horse would take up more than one square, and there was possibly hundreds of horses in a populated area (let's say Falador world 2 bank), it would be very laggy, and very crowded.

I dont think its going to be horses exactly, taiming animals seems like a possibility though. After all they did change cat basket to pet basket. And im not very sure about it making the game lag any worse than it currently is, its not like the addition of cats made it any more laggy. Im just speculating though im not very sure that animal taiming will be made a skill. If anyone else has any other ideas about what the supposed skill update may be i would like to know. Although theres also a chance that the "secret update" isnt a skill at all and may be something else. Saradomin cloakoblivion 01:21, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

About the assist system

I've been thinking. Since the items don't really leave your inventory, won't that make the free armour trimming and free gem cutting scams useless now? -- 05:54, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

The lie about "free amour trimming" is a scam that will most likely be defunct, so yes, it is "useless" now. :) As for gem cutting, it should increase, since this is a scam-proof way for it to function. Dragon helmChiafriend12Granite body (old)Loon is best buttlord 06:08, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
That's one of the reasons for them making the Assist system, to help cut back on possible scams. Don't know that I would use the term "useless" as it implies that it had good uses, when it never did, they were stupid scams by idiot players. I personally love the idea of it, glad they're able to put a system in that will allow that ability. Crafting TIRRIANGANT (TALK) 16:39, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
Some victims won't know how to use the Assist System. So yeah, "triming blak armor 4 ch3p" will never completlely die. Rollback crownearth(t)
The assist system's released, and I think I was wrong. I don't think the armour trmming scam is defunct, as the assist system only borrows skill levels, but they need all the items to do it (which scammers claim they have and is non-tradable). So I think this scam is still present (Note: I'm the above IP. I use a dynamic one that's recently changed). -- 14:06, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
It seems that the system only allows players to use anothers skills in order to make items that were tradeable to begin with. However, the way it works is that no items leave that players inventory. So yes, the free trimming shouldn't work (as often) because the player shouldn't be trading any items to begin with, just using the other players skill levels for the time. I certainly wouldn't object to someone using my skills, free xp for me. :o) Crafting TIRRIANGANT (TALK) 18:18, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, at least this makes my quest for a fury ammy much easier... -- 23:36, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
