First of all, it is a fantastic point you make about others, rs3 gold is not one that’s crossed my mind nor something I’ve read in of the remarks. He is risking more than 1m for certain, if a person in BIS gear is coaching at abyss. Chances are you won’t have the ability to kill him whatsoever, and he earned the place by power (Zamorak be praised). Obviously you can frighten him, but he could kill you. It does not matter what they’re wearing, you may already walk them up, assault them, poison them and frighten them 1iteming in the present system, so whilst it doesn’t solve this matter, it also does not cause it.
Little sidenote is that skulling works the same. If you strike a runescape player you are going to find a skull for (15 or 20?) Moments, which enriches your items that are saved to 0, excluding sign/prayer/hoarding/fury shark. Nothing changed to this, you need to reclaim more items. But it all ties together with conserving 5 items at no cost, which I agree is far too generous. I think limiting the number of items you can shield to 3 are a large step. You could still have your ring, weapon and body armour protected, but you’re going to have to pay outside that. Skulled + furyshark hoarding + hint of shield will still get you up.
Maybe it should be balanced which you cant shield anything when you’re skulled, those are specifics for Jagex to work out based how they wish to equilibrium, but it’s essential that this is considered properly, maybe among the greatest points raised in the entire thread. And I agree to your point about skilling, but I admit that this is a frame for content that is new to be balanced/developed for. Currently even with this system not many people would be particularly incentivised to go in the wildy, since there’s simply not much to do that’s well worth the additional risk.
Only a copy-paste of exactly what I said a few months ago: maybe some people just like you would bring their BIS equipment with this revamp, but what about most that will still use cheap equipment like royal that aren’t interested in battling other runescape players? It would be worse, This revamp (aka death reclaim) is just an attempt to generate runescape easier for the crybabies. There is plenty of things that are better that Jagex can do to create the wildy more busy, if thats what we desire. Also we have that thing of cheap RS gold called dueling anyplace for all those people that want to fight each others and practise in a safe atmosphere. 95 percent of Runescape is secure nowadays, wildy is the risky place left in runescape.
