I fail to see how they could make melee the best style for any boss without forcing it arbitrarily via prayer like nex or insane resistances like order of ascension.

- the dungeon mobs will be immune to all forms of combat that isn't melee

Solak and Seiryu encourage melee as a switch (inadvertently, largely due to lack of defense -> lack of aura not an issue) by having periods where burst damage is important. If you kill the Solak core in one go, you skip 1-2 minutes of doing the fight for the opportunity to attack it again. Similar thing for Seiryu and the crystals (2 cycle instead of 3 cycle, or more than 3 cycles if you are inadequately prepared to PvM in RuneScape).

I got bored, and remembered seeing this on the thread. I will calculate the score based on what I've seen and experienced, and edit if necessary. (There are also spoilers along the way, so be warned).

- There will be no release this month cause it'll get delayed last minute.

Incorrect (Released February 25)

- The first two bosses will be copies of Asterlarn and Masuta respectively. (pls no)

First boss is just dodging mechanics and soul splitting. (where as Astellarn you just take damage because everything is pretty much hitting you).

Second boss is nowhere near as annoying as Masuta, but does have a damage-reduction mechanic and lots of other things other than the boss to hit you that you can't protect all from.

- There will be some terrible reason that we can breath underwater without snorkel gear, bubbles, or a helmet of any kind

Correct: a "Potion of waterbreathing" from the quest.

On 2/1/2019 at 4:52 PM, AmusedDragon said:

- There will be a game breaking bug in which the final boss dies instantly if you surge into it the right way.

Yet to be determined, but for now, it's incorrect.

On 2/1/2019 at 5:13 PM, Edem said:

It will be a range based boss that they want you to use melee on to give people a reason to use melee. This will fail and people will continue to use mage.

Melee is honestly the best style in ED3, but magic is still fairly optimal. Gonna score this as "no"

Pirate boss of somekind

At least two pirate mini-bosses, so yeah.

On 2/1/2019 at 5:16 PM, Deathcon said:

Some sort of ocean creature boss (Fish/Lobster/Crab/Clam etc)

Was it not obvious?

On 2/1/2019 at 5:19 PM, Shepherdc88 said:

It will be fighting characters from the little mermaid..

 

Sebastian will be 1st boss

 

Ariel will be 2nd

 

Triton will be third.


Mini bosses include

 

Flounder, Prince Eric, the eels, scuttle, a trio of mermaid sisters ( or sirens ), Ursula, and Prince Erics dog in some form.

Incorrect, incorrect, incorrect, can't determine all of the minibosses, but there is a scuttler and a trio mini-boss of some group.

Boss pet won't be released but the item for it will be ingame

Thankfully, that's wrong.

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

Hard mode won’t happen

Solo mode is technically hardmode, so no.

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

ambass only won’t happen

Correct. However, I believe there was a bug upon release that allowed the Ambassador to respawn after killing a mob outside of the arena (or so I've heard).

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

second boss will have dead zones where it either stops functioning, desynchs, or doesn’t hit its mechanics

Correct. There's nothing forcing his mechanics past the 200k hp mark.

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

jagex will deny any questions about drop rate being wrong and ninja fix it 3 weeks later

We're just over 2 weeks in, and there hasn't been a complaint since. So yet to be determined.

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

unavoidable minions that poison

Incorrect; I don't think anything in there poisons you.

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

solo will be the only viable profit method but take 45 minutes a run.

Incorrect; group does yield (a tiny bit of) profit too. And my solo runs take 35 mins on average. xd

On 2/1/2019 at 6:17 PM, Kris_Kronkle said:

clearly I’m an optimist

Perhaps (not) :P

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

ED2 pet will not unlock as intended and require a hotfix

No and Yes. A little after release, they needed to hotfix Seiryu since he'd still be unconscious after the fight, which you wouldn't be able to talk to him and claim the pet.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

No stone spirit drops

Funny joke. We get Dark Animica stone spirits.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

There will be an achievement for using Saradomin Sword special attack on a miniboss

There will be an achievement for using Barrelchest Anchor special attack on a miniboss

There will be an achievement for using Brine Sabre special attack on a miniboss

There will be an achievement for killing a miniboss with Fish Bowl Helm and Diving Apparatus equipped

There will be an achievement for casting Humidify while in the dungeon

There will be a crab miniboss named Sebastian

There will be a lobster miniboss with an examine referencing cleaning one's room

None of these are correct.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

There will be an octopus miniboss

There is one of the same class (Cephalopod), so sure.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

One of the main 3 bosses will use a trident as a weapon

One of the main 3 bosses will be a kraken

Nope and nope.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

The new arrows will increase the damage you deal with ranged by 1% per hit up to 5%

They only reduce the target's armour, which only makes you and the team more accurate. So nope.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

There will be a large amount of monsters in between bosses which people will complain about

I can't say I've ever heard anyone complain about them. Most gates only require a couple of significant mobs to kill, and they're usually easy to wipe out.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

One of the bosses will be poorly designed for solo and people will complain

Nope. None of that Seiryu upon release or that Astellarn stuff. They were considerate with the second and third boss.

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

The crossbow will be an extremely rare (1/500) drop

Not the actual crossbow itself, but the pieces, I do believe this is correct. Some people say that the drop-rate is suppose to be rarer than the pet's drop rate (which is 1/300 in a solo).

On 2/1/2019 at 7:39 PM, Veggie said:

AmusedDragon will get the pet before 100 killcount

Yet to be determined. Will edit once it's confirmed.

Crab rave miniboss.

On 2/1/2019 at 9:28 PM, Deathcon said:

It'd be a crab with a boombox or logically some kind of musical conch.

Somebody else can photoshop that for their pleasure. xd But nope.

On 2/1/2019 at 9:30 PM, Catbutts said:

It will get shelved.

That'd just cause an uproar (and probably a sigh of relief for those final bossers).

On 2/1/2019 at 9:46 PM, ah ty said:

It'll drop range codex's that make range the highest damage style

Nope.

On 2/2/2019 at 3:40 AM, Isurugi Noe said:

It will exclusively drop stone spirits in order to promote skilling

The redditors are already going nuts about stone spirits in general; having them exclusively would just make them completely lose hope of Jagex. xd

Yakamaru 2: Electric Eel Boogaloo

Sounds like something they'd recycle for Raids 2 if they happen to run out of ideas :reporter:

Zanik will be here watching over all of us trying to kill this boss

Depends who you are, really.

On 2/2/2019 at 10:58 AM, Haze said:

one of the bosses will reuse the line of grabby hands attack

Surprisingly, no, there isn't. There are black hands, but none of them deal constant 4k's every tick.

Gonna need someone else to confirm this.

Don't care if I get r/wooosh in this; it's still gonna be "no" xd

 

Score: 10/48 (20.83%), with 4 of them undetermined.

Feel free to correct me about anything; this only took me an hour to do. X)
