Convenience like that shouldn't come so cheap; rather than make something permanent for free, there should be a decent cost to it. Say, since such an operation can cost 1m in OSRS (camulet), accounting for inflation in RS3 (bond price comparison), a fitting cost to make drakan's medallion unlimited would be 8m gp payment to some NPC who then enhances it with permanent charges? Or if you wanted to keep it in the theme, maybe a blood rune payment instead, say, 15k blood runes?

So yeah, no support for outright removal, but for a payment? Could make sense! > )

What do you consider better then? Because "a miniquest" can be anything from almost zero work to Architectural Alliance, it's too vague as a word to describe difficulty/length or such.

And yeah, the recharge is fairly quick, but remember: those seconds add up hundreds, thousands of times etc. If you're a high level player who values his time, you can easily pay up the payment I proposed. And if you're not quite there yet, then you're keeping that part of the game relevant. If the cost for permanent charges was too generous, no-one would bother with the actual mechanic, making it dead content.

I'd suggest a quest similar to the GW2 quest to use the teleportation tablets.

On the point about the seconds adding up, you'd have to provide an example of why someone would be repeatedly using up the charges for me to get behind you with this. Most cases I can imagine, such as buying olive oil from Rasmus and banking can all be done without using charges. Also doing barrows and porting to burgh de rott to bank doesn't use charges. I don't know of any purpose to using the meierditch or darkmeyer teleports more than once at a time.

Hmm, that could work, yes.

About the seconds adding up, I forgot to add that I was also counting the time you use if you teleport with ectophial (+carrying the item itself) or home teleport (+money if you use quick teleport charges) to avoid losing charges on the medallion. Since, you know, if the charges were unlimited, you wouldn't have to use those methods to avoid losing charges either.
