I've just seen that there's been an attractive update to the Barbarian Assault Minigame. Seeing as this is my favourite Rs minigame, I've been known to play it a lot and I think people know that of me. With that in mind, I thought I'd pre-empty all of the people asking advice on how to play it by directing people to my previous blog entries about it. Cheating, I know, but I'm figuring that it'll save time in-game if I can just say, 'Go and look at my blog'. :P
There are loads more blogs about it, but those, I think, give a good feel for the game.
And for the record, yes it is safe for anyone to use the cannon and no, it doesn't take away points from the team. -.-
Edit: Oh cachi. I just realised that Jagex have nerfed the fighter torso. WHAT?!
Edit Two: Panic over! I think that the outcry on the forums did the trick, as there's just been a second announcement:
OH MY GOD! WE KEEP IT UPON DEATH AGAIN!
Edit Three (5pm): Jagex are reversing the torso changes. There are riots in World 6 and the forums are very volatile. From nerf to unnerf it took 2 hours. I snapped a picture of the torso stats during that time:
Edit Four (5.15pm): Merchanters on the forums are going yampy now. Many of them bought quantities of Bandos Chestplates in the interim, as they were bound to rise in price with the nerfing of the torso. With the unnerfing, the BCPs are likely to... what? Stay the same? Go down? Surely there hasn't been enough time for them to change price in the GE.
Edit Five: We've had the system update and World 6 has calmed down again.
So what changed. Here are the before and after pictures for three penance items. The first is during the few hours it was changed and the second is after the system update:
It retained its 'drop' option too!
And incidentally, it's not over yet:
