Troll Warzone


This week sees the conversion of Burthorpe and Taverley into the Troll Warzone – a massive area rework designed to drop new members right into the thick of things. There’s plenty to do even if you’re one of the old guard, though, so high-tail it to Burthorpe and do your bit to turn back the trollish tide!
The Troll Warzone is designed as a linear experience, so new members and low-levelled players will be taken straight to Burthorpe and placed into a tutorial mode, where they’ll be guided through the content in order. The more experienced among you will be given the choice to be teleported straight to Burthorpe to follow this preset path, or you can make your own way there and complete the content in whatever order you wish.
There’s plenty to do, whether you’re new to the game or a hardened veteran:
Let Them Eat Pie
Rolo the Stout is an unscrupulous merchant who is taking advantage of the plight of Taverley’s inhabitants to turn a quick profit, and whose one weakness is a finely crafted short crust. Grit your teeth, hold your nose and belay your culinary sensibilities to wreak vengeance upon this rotund racketeer’s digestive system.
To start Let Them Eat Pie, speak to Nails Newton outside the Pick and Lute tavern in Taverley.
Quest Reworks
Wolf Whistle, Druidic Ritual and Death Plateau have each been extensively re-written, to bring them in line with the quality and storyline of the rest of the area. If you’ve completed these quests before, you’ll still be able to play the new versions and will receive the rewards at the end, although you won’t receive any additional quest points. Wolf Whistle and Druidic Ritual are no longer requirements for training Summoning and Herblore, and Death Plateau is no longer a requirement for smithing claws.

Baby Troll Pet
War has victims on both sides, and one battle will introduce you to this little fellow. Visit the combat training area afterwards to adopt him, and he’ll stay with you indefinitely. Trolls are naturally long-lived, so you won’t see him grow up, and although you don’t need to give him food, he is always hungry. This is one troll that we would definitely recommend feeding...
Recommendation System
Gielinor’s a big place, and it can often be hard to decide what to do or where to explore next. Speaking to the skill tutors in the warzone will allow you to undertake recommended tasks, which give great training ideas to those of low to mid skill levels. You’ll even get a handy teleport to the necessary area, although there are limits on how often you can use it.
Graphical and Audio Update

Posted Image


The Troll Warzone is also the latest of our graphical improvements. As well as being rearranged, the two towns are now a bustling, chaotic frontline base, with wounded soldiers, beleaguered refugees and war-worn architecture, while retaining and enhancing the Imperialist and druidic style of their more peaceful incarnations. There’s some amazing new audio content too, with sampled atmospheric sounds, music and effects that change naturally as you tour the area.
...And Much More!
Along with all of this, there’s a pile of new stuff to help new members during their whistle-stop tour through their members’ benefits: a new two handed sword with a special attack; a customisable mage staff; a reworked version of the Dwarven Army Axe, which can be upgraded to give XP boosts helpful for speeding up low-level training; and the eternal gratitude of the Imperial Guard.
There’s never been a better time to be a member. If you’re considering making the switch to the members’ game, or have friends who’ve yet to give it a go, what’re you waiting for?
The Burthorpe Imperial Guard needs you!
Mod Mark, Mod Jack, Mod Liono, Mod Wilson, Mod Moltare and Mod Z
In Other News...
- Some quest starting zones, including Witch’s House and Grim Tales, have been moved to fit in with the rework of Burthorpe and Taverley. Some other frequently used features, such as the farming patch, have been moved too. Don’t worry, though – nothing’s been taken away!
- Melee armour up to steel (including square shields and kite shields), leather armour, and both blue and black wizard’s robes have been given a graphical overhaul.
- The blue skirt has been renamed to the wizard’s robe skirt, and the black skirt to the black robe skirt. Both now have small bonuses to magic attack and magic defence.
- For a look at the visual improvements we'll be making to higher-level armour, pay a visit to the mercenaries just north of Falador.
- There is now the option to travel to Burthorpe through your home teleport spell.
- We’ve made some visual improvements to the quest journal and task interfaces.
- Slayer monster respawn rates have been increased slightly to be closer to the respawn rate prior to Bot Nuke Day.
- All bank booths are now usable with a left-click "Bank" option.
- Clan Theatre emotes have been removed from the emotes interface when not in a Clan Theatre.
- The "Desperado" player title is now available from the Player Loyalty Store for a discounted price of 7500 loyalty points for a limited time of 2 weeks only.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of everything on the wiki later.  Has anyone got some pictures of taverly/burthorpe?  I can't get on the game now, and won't be able to for a while :) .

That's really not how it works.  Technically, you've completed both quests, and the game registers it as such.  However, because you haven't gone through the actions of completing the quest, you can still do it.  It's a workaround they've chosen to employ since gunnar's ground, and new players still have to do the quests to access the skills.

All that's happened is that players who were training summoning and herblore before the update can continue to do so without an irritating and unnecessary interruption.

Besides, if they didn't do it this way, then when a quest got revamped you wouldn't be allowed to play it, and you'd feel you were missing out.  It really is the best solution to the problem.

Finally, I imagine Jagex has pleased you on a number of occasions.  I can't imagine you are disappointed by every new update, otherwise you'd probably stop playing the game.

All I can say is thank you Jagex!. Been waiting for this for awhile. Now they just need to add a full blown sorting feature. Now I'll have to go see how interesting this troll warzone actually is.

I'm disapointed on most updates only because I know Jagex could had done better.

After playing around in the area for awhile I feel like it's well done for the most part. However there are a few things that I don't really like.

First off, the reduction of trolls to newb status is disappointing. I see trolls as a mid-high level monster and having troll "bosses" and such that are easily one hittable makes them seem far less like the big tough monsters they were in the past.

Also, taverly has kind of disappeared in this update. Now it's all burthope where there used to be two distinct villages. This is mostly disappointing because I liked the feel of taverly. And now that feeling is completely gone.
