Well,

Pack Yaks?

Signs of the Porter?

Now now Kopaka, those aren't brokenly OP enough, nothing short of that will do.

Joking aside, Treasure Hunter needs be removed rather than made even more lucrative, and proper game content like the above already exists, so there's no need to add a deposit box "follower". > )

People have said use families for not supporting this threads suggestion - why use deposit box if you got familiars? Deposit boxes are used for different things and people love them use them even though familiars do a similar job. Having a magical magnetic deposit box will be well used in possibly a different manner.

When I go to combat I am more likely use a familiar, when skilling I am more likely going to use a deposit box.

I see magic deposit box as a well used item in-game

You haven't at all explained how this ridiculous idea would be good for the game's health; you just keep saying how you would use it, but by that logic, we could just give everyone a free 200m gp handout because everyone would use it and love getting free money, consequences ignored. You need to actually pitch why your idea should be added to the game, not assure that you'd use it yourself.

But let's be real here; your idea, which is a random handout that requires no skill or other effort to obtain, would just devalue pack yaks for no good reason. If you want to deposit stuff to your bank on-the-go, earn the ability to summon a pack yak and use it. Actually play the game like it was meant to be played.

@Blackwing - it wouldn't devalue the game, it's a rare prize like other prizes in that range - that is what would be so op about it - it's so rare it would not take away from any other items in the game, the chances of getting it would be slim. There are many things in TH I would love to get my hands on but RNG is a bitch.

I know for a fact that you Blackwing are against TH to begin with and others that are against this idea may be too if that's the case any TH ideas are going to be boohooed whatever the case.

This is an item you can win, chances are slim and if you are lucky enough to win it for one hour it will be at your disposal, like other deposit boxes the only difference is with this one, it will travel with you for one hour.

Yes, there are other means of taking stuff to the bank, there pretty much has always been a method for taking stuff to the bank as long as I can remember and Jagex has brought out a variety of options - Magnetic Magical Deposit Box is an op TH prize, a very slim one at that.

Dong, you still haven't explained why your idea should be added, and how it'd be good for the health of the game. It's not a surprise why you haven't done that; because it shouldn't be added, and it'd damage the game's health further. Making an overpowered thing "rare" from not playing the game doesn't change the fact that it discourages the player from playing the game, which goes against the whole point of video games: playing them.

And btw, people don't "boohoo" TH ideas because they're TH ideas, but rather because they tend to be without exception terrible ideas when it comes to balancing, and all ideas (not just TH ideas) which are terrible in that aspect deserve to be criticized as such. A good game designer encourages the game to be played, while a bad game designer discourages it.

BS, It's would be a rare prize so no it wouldn't stop the use of any banking methods in use today.

And it would be a bonus prize, which you can grab out of your bank click to activate and off you go skilling, no need to spend money or time with other methods - it's like a treat, but a rare treat, the chance of getting it would be slim, extremely slim.

It won't be an everyday occurrence - I am not sure what the percentage of a red prize is, but I do know it's very rare and hard to get. Also red is just a suggestion, could well be a purple prize - I am not sure if it's op enough for purple unless you get more than one??

If you think the red category is "very rare and hard to get", you're absolutely clueless about Treasure Hunter. Or maybe you just use your daily key(s) and assume that because you don't win it every other day that it's very rare, even though key buyers will get so many red category prizes that they probably wish they'd be able to trade many reds for just one purple.

But seriously Dong: there's zero reason to add this to TH. All it does is devalue existing gameplay, when it'd be far better off being a part of the actual gameplay by being earned, not bought.

@Blackwing - As I said bs, deposit boxes, in general, have not taken from other areas of banking and neither will Magnetic Magical Deposit Box. So going down this track is not true.

The only way for your idea to not devalue existing alternatives would be if nobody used your idea, but if that was the case, why bother adding it in the first place? But you even admitted yourself multiple times that you would use it, so that'd already devalue the alternatives, let alone if other people would use it too.

Instead of trying to excuse why your idea should slip into the game, you should explain why it's good for the game. The more stuff that gets added to the game randomly and without any sense of balance, the more of a bad joke the game becomes.
