New 2h Melee Weapon with the same effect as Dharok's. Goal being high-risk, high reward.
Dropped exclusively by Chaos Elemental (Chaos Waraxe?).

Less health you have, the more damage you do.
100% HP DPS somewhere around t70
<10% HP DPS somewhere above t92

Degrade to dust or lost on death.
Removes ability to protect items?

My thoughts for this would be to introduce an item that has a high risk associated with it.
-Being obtained from the wildy only introduces the risk of getting PK'd.
-Having low-tier stats encourages players to play with low health, making the possibility of death more prominent.
-Having the item remove the ability to protect items (every item lost on death) increases item degradation for all your equipment and again raises the cost for death.

-Reward is well above t92 damage (possibly 99?).

Open to balancing ideas and name suggestions.

Making it d2d will make the places worth using it quite limited. Since it probably won't be cheap, and end game bosses that are worth using such a weapon can hit hard with aa, it wouldn't just be risky to stay at low enough hp to outdps current bis weapons but straight up suicidal. °l||l° Modest Skillers T7 Citadel | Skilling clan recruiting players. °l||l°

I think people will just stick with the safe Dharok's version of the weapon if they want the effect. People don't like to go the Wildy, and going for/with a weapon that makes you lose more is not very interesting. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

The idea is to make it useful for end-game bosses. Obviously this isn't going to be useful for slayer or questing.

Also, the point would be for it to be very niche. We don't always need something that is just bis for everything all the time. Just to introduce a little variety to the mix.

End-game bosses? Probably not. Most of them can K.O. you from low health as op said.

For lower level bosses? Definitely. I could see this being useful at GWD 1 and 2, Giant Mole, Barrows.

Also, I adamantly oppose ignoring the protect item prayer.


Otherwise I think it’s a good idea. Cheers!

Yes, that's the idea.

Not just the prayer, item protection as a whole. No more 3 items kept on death. The whole point is to do the most damage in the game and to make death something to be afraid of. Only people who are really confident or really stupid would use it.

So I did some testing with Dharok’s and this is what I discovered.

- At 500 health, my baseline auto attacks were superior even to my noxious staff.
- The effect doesn’t work with abilities.

So there’s really no need for a higher tier version of the weapon as it’s already tier-breaking. That being said it’s really only useful in legacy mode.

So by all means try Dharok in your high level bossing and let me know how it goes. :|


So your way of reviving the wilderness is to make the wilderness less inviting? The wilderness is already empty as it is, this would make it worse. You need to make the wilderness lucrative for skillers first, PKers second. It’s counterintuitive, I know. If skillers stop entering the wilderness, then you have nobody left to PK. When you have nobody else to PK, you are sad.
