​RuneScape - Amuse do NOT consistently change the meta

news Sep-03-2019

For those of you who acquire not apparent this year's ceremony survey, there was acknowledgment of Jagex alteration the meta consistently to accumulate things absorbing and to accumulate high-level players on their toes. Actuality are my arguments for why I do not anticipate this is a acceptable idea:


1, History - RuneScape has a lot of it and this has never been the case for RuneScape, and in fact, this has been a affection that sets RuneScape abreast from added MMOs breadth the action meta is consistently alteration and what the "best-in-slot" weapon is now may be altered in 2 weeks. The accent of weapons—and all admired items—in RuneScape is abundantly because of their "legendary status". The meta has to change eventually; I accept this. However, the action by which this happens can be abiding for a absolute continued time. An Elysian spirit absorber isn't what it already was, but you apperceive that if you see a abecedarian with a absolute Zaros Godsword, they yield this bold seriously.


2, The tiers are still incomplete—let's not get advanced of ourselves, here. Even if all the accepted weapons are abounding in, t92 shields, catchbasin armors, longswords, scimitars, halberds, etc, it is never too backward to acknowledgment to lower tiers and complete them. There is just so abundant abeyant to accomplishment what has been started. Accord the abysmal whip an off-hand dagger, for example, or acquiesce an off-hand bright artful to be "dyed" with an abysmal whip. Release t75 bolts for Armadyl Crossbows, for example.


3, Value - Annihilation turns a abecedarian off added than purchasing a Staff of Sliske for 1.4 billion abandoned to acquisition out a ceremony afterwards it's been outclassed and is now worthless. As apparent before, humans are still accommodating to pay for old weapons and armors if they can be acclimated as apparatus in bigger weapons and armors. This was accomplished absolute able-bodied if Torva became a key basic in Masterwork armor. Even if t95 accent is arise some time down the line, ability edge can and should be limited by acute the new accent to be fabricated not abandoned with the primary new drops but aswell by antibacterial one of their t92 counterparts.


4, Weapon assortment - Unique appropriate attacks and furnishings can accord weapons of the aforementioned levels important alcove uses as primaries, and these weapons do acclaim ceremony added able-bodied as switches. Although "switchscape" can be a hassle, as continued as these furnishings don't become overpowered, it will be in fact alternative to yield weapon switches to even the a lot of difficult of encounters.


5, Quality over abundance - The Angel of Death was an EXTREMELY acknowledged and accepted bang-up that accustomed both aristocratic PvMers and rather new players to acquire a adventitious at authoritative it rich. Why blitz to change what is already abundant about this game? Accord weapons and/or the administration that bead them absorbing and abysmal lore. Force players to complete a adventure or alternation of quests, OSRS gold or burrow into a cavern or alcove artlessly to acquisition the boss, with added places and items of absorption forth the way.


The "God Wars Alcove 3" with Torva, Pernix and Virtus is an accomplished classic of a huge abeyant update. What if Torva agitated a t92 hasta and Pernix a brace of t92 throwing axes? Would you wish to absorb months developing a admirable dungeon affluent in belief with absorbing administration abandoned to acquire it become asleep agreeable aural a few months because the weapons are advised abundantly useless? Seems like ashen effort.
