So in hype for the Pirate-themed Treasure Hunter event this weekend, I went to the Brimhaven Agility Arena today to start getting some tokens. I got down into the arena and realized it still has the same graphics as it did in 2007! Those graphics are for Oldschool RS (no offense to Oldschool players).
We need a graphical rework of this Arena for the 6th Age! Something that really makes it pop. Something that makes the lava pit what it's meant to be! All the platforms still have that old Falador wall stone look and are awkwardly squared off. I haven't seen anything look that square in RuneScape for a long time, since there's been a huge increase in graphic reworks, that is.
I know that the Brimhaven Agility Arena is for low-level agility, but it's still one of the most fun in terms of challenging courses, and you get tickets for cool prizes! It's also where the Agility Master is housed, so it's gotta get some travel right??
Here's my thoughts on what exactly should be updated/upgraded in the Arena:
1. Full graphical rework, including updated lava, platforms, obstacles, and overall atmosphere.
2. New animations for the moving obstacles, but also for the stationary ones. This would include, but is not limited to the obstacle where you dodge the poison darts that jettison out of a pillar at you as you dodge them Matrix Bullet style. While that animation is spectacular, it needs an update. Like I said, I was doing the course before writing this and discovered that two of the darts seemed to pass right through my head! OUCH!
3. This one is one of the most important, well, they're all important, but this one is especially significant. There needs to be a timer. You see, when there is a new point to reach to receive another ticket, there currently is no indication on how long you have to get there, and once you get it, you're waiting until the next one pops up. So there needs to be a timer for that.
