After seeing both ingame snapshots and concept art for the Superhero overides, I am quite enthused by them. I like the design of the outfits, as well as the idea of the lightning bolts.
However, there appears to only be a ranged (Lightning bolts for thrown weapons) and melee (claws) overides. It seems magic got completely left out of the picture. Being a preferred mage character, I would have liked to have had a magic themed overide (wand and orb, or staff). I understand that Everyone can’t be made happy, and that it is likely too late to add something for magic in. However, I would appreciate it if Jagex were keep the thought in mind for any future promotions that have overrides as rewards.
Honestly I’m not that worried about it, but I’m a bit of a runescape fashionista…and I’ve realized that the superhero outfit doesn’t really go very well with any high level staff or wand/book/orb combo. I find it just a little annoying. I was kinda hoping that the lightning bolts were spell overrides as well. That’d be interesting..
In the most recent vote, the Saradomin faction voted for another centaur champion to join the first, while Zamorak voted for their demonic champion to become stronger. What has happened (or at least it appears this way) is that there is a glitch allowing many more than two centaurs to be present at once. Meanwhile, although Zamorak’s lesser demons have supposedly gotten stronger, it appears that they just were updated graphically and heal 75 instead of 50. To support this, a centaur and a demon were fighting on the battlefield. They each had about the same amount of health and constantly were hitting the same amount of damage on each other, even though the demon is supposedly stronger.
Please post if you have noticed similar things, or you can explain possibly. Don’t if your just going to say one god is better than the other.
I have noticed that it is much easier to collect tears by slaying centaurs. (I’m aligned with Zamorak for now)
Still, it seems that the Lesser Demons should be more powerful, but I guess it’s okay.
Possibly with the next vote, it will matter more.
Ironically, I’m not a devout follower of either god, so I will soon be switching sides for the rewards, and then I’ll miss all the champions. You guys are right about the tears…
All the boost does is apparently impact the healing skill, so the Zamorakians were misled by the poor description as the overall healing boost is pretty much garbage atm. Like others, I had assumed it would impact the, overall, special unit capabilities (including the medics, rogues, etc)..
