Poll Blog: Portal Nexus and More

As we draw ever closer to delivering the updates offered in our latest poll blog, we’d like to offer some new updates for your voting pleasure!

We’re aiming to have these poll questions ready in-game later this week, so if you have any feedback you’d like to provide then follow the links at the bottom of this post! 

Portal Nexus

We’ve heard how many of you feel that the amount of real estate required to have a portal to each teleport location within your player-owned house is quite excessive, so we’d like to offer a popular community suggested alternative. The Portal Nexus is a large portal that would be built in a new POH room, fittingly named the “Nexus” room, at level 72 Construction.

The Nexus room requires 72 Construction and 200k gold to build. Once done, you’ll then be able to build the Portal Nexus, which is placed in the centre of the room. Activating the Portal Nexus will open an interface with all the available teleports – these can either be clicked on or you can use the keybind shortcuts we’ll include for ease of use.

For a teleport to become available, you’ll need to first unlock the ability to use it. Much like how the portals in the Portal Chamber work, you’ll need the runes for that particular teleport spell in order to unlock the teleport. The Portal Nexus requires 1000 times the required runes for the particular teleport spell you wish to unlock. This unlock is permanent.

You’ll be able to set a default left-click teleport location on the Portal Nexus via a right-click configure option. If this is done, the interface with all the available teleports would be available via a separate right-click option. Should you wish for the left-click to open the menu, you can leave this unconfigured or reconfigure it via a right-click option.

The Nexus Portal has three tiers, allowing you to upgrade it similar to how the jewellery boxes work to unlock additional teleport slots.

Tier 1
Construction level: 72
Teleport locations limit: 4
Materials required: 4 x Marble blocks
Experience given for constructing: 2000 Construction XP

Tier 2
Construction level: 82
Teleport locations limit: 8
Materials required: 4 x Marble blocks & 2 x Gold leaf
Experience given for constructing: 2160 Construction XP

Tier 3
Construction level: 92
Teleport locations limit: Infinite
Materials required: 2 x Magic stones & 1 x Gold leaf
Experience given for constructing: 2080 Construction XP

Poll Question #1
Should the Portal Nexus, as described in the Dev Blog, be added to the game? The Portal Nexus is built in the Nexus room of a player-owned house which requires level 72 Construction. At 72 Construction the Portal Nexus is limited to 4 teleport locations, at 82 it can be upgraded to 8 teleport locations and at 92 it can be upgraded to remove the limit entirely.

Additional Poll Questions

Poll Question #2
If the Portal Nexus is added to the game, should there be a hotspot that allows you to mount a Xeric’s Talisman? This would require level 72 Construction, 1 Mahogany plank, 1 Gold leaf, 1 Xeric’s talisman (inert) and 5000 Lizardman Fangs for unlimited Xeric’s Talisman teleports. Constructing this would grant 500 Construction XP.


Poll Question #3
If the Portal Nexus is added to the game, should there be a hotspot that allows you to mount a Digsite pendant? This would require level 82 Construction, 1 Mahogany plank, 1 Gold leaf, 1 Curator’s medallion (which can be obtained by trading the Varrock Curator 250 rubies), 100 cosmic runes and 500 fire runes for unlimited Digsite pendant teleports. Constructing this would grant 800 Construction XP.


Poll Question #4
Should it be possible to “Fill” and “Empty” Runecrafting pouches from essence already in your inventory only whilst using the bank by right-clicking them?


Poll Question #5
Should a right-click option be added to Wizard Cromperty allowing you to quickly claim the daily Pure essence you receive from him after completion of either the Medium, Hard or Elite Ardougne Achievement Diary?


Poll Question #6
Should it be possible to toggle between the Al Kharid Palace and Shantay pass when teleporting to Al Kharid with an Amulet of glory after completing the Hard Desert Achievement Diary by talking to Shantay?


Poll Question #7
Should the “ow” message when failing an Urn in Pyramid Plunder be removed?


Poll Question #8
Should items that have options available whilst the bank interface is open have the same options available whilst the deposit box interface is open too?


Poll Question #9
Should Bucket packs, which contain 100 noted Buckets, be added to General stores and Farming shops?


Poll Question #10
Should the Kalphite Queen head be guaranteed to drop after 256 kills, similar to Vorkath’s head? Those already above 256 kills would be guaranteed to receive the Kalphite Queen head on their next kill.


Poll Question #11
Should the way worlds are displayed in the World Switcher interface be changed so they are consistent with the rest of the game? For example, World 42 would show as World 342 as it does in the main “Select a world” interface.


Poll Question #12
Should a message be added to the chatbox when you log in telling you that you have items waiting in your Grand Exchange collection box, should you have anything waiting there? This would be toggleable at the Grand Exchange.


Poll Question #13
Should the Thermonuclear smoke devil be given an altered model, rather than the current Smoke devil model being used?
