For the cosmetic shop in Bounty Hunter

I believe for the added items to be truly appreciated, they should be usable whilst pking in edgeville, and not only when bank standing. For example, a cosmetic cape would be completely useless since the vast majority of pkers either use a firecape/infernal, ava's accumulator or a god cape. So, for the cape slot, I propose either trimming kits, altering the appearance of already used items or no cosmetic at all.

Cosmetic tops and hats are excellent considering they don't conflict with any DPS increasing gear for pures.

For any build with 40+ defence, you don't really want to compromise any gear slot for cosmetics whilst pking. Therefore, I think cosmetics should once again be altering the appearance of already used items.

I think the cosmetics should be untradable and kept on death since they're just for fun.

Requirements for unlocks
I believe cosmetics should be rewarding accomplishments in Bounty Hunter. They should preferably not be boostable, so anything related to "Rogue kills" is not interesting. Anything related to K/D ratio is not prefered since it would encourage faul play, sitting extremely high HP, spec tabbing etc. Unlocking new cosmetics by accumulating more BH target kills could be one alternative, enticing dedication and performance in Bounty Hunter, whilst not impacting how we pk. So for instance, some items are unlocked after 20 BH target kills, some more at 50, 100, 500 and 1000. In addition to requiring certain amount of kills, the cosmetics would also cost BH points.

Suggestions for cosmetics
Now for the fun part :). What cosmetics would be fun?
Once again, I think we should look at items that are already frequently used and see how they could be altered just a bit to show off your dedication and performance in Bounty Hunter. I don't think adding extreme changes to items would benefit anyone, since it would lead to confusion. I think we should look at small things but that are still recognisible.

- Face paint, different face paints unlocked at increasing amount of BH target kills. See (Vannaka for reference)
- New death animations when you kill your opponent. For example, turning your opponent into flames as they die or turning them into stone that then crumbles.
- Recolour of amulet of strength's string to black instead of white.
- Recolour of Amulet of Glory's string to black instead of white.
-Kit for magic short bow that adds an aura to all arrows being shot (Crystal bow for reference)
- Kit for Black D'hide chaps that changes one of the grey scales on the right leg to a new colour. There could be multiple kits obtainable at increasing amount of BH kills, with new scale recolours.
- Recolour of firecape's neck string from brown to black.
- Recolour of fighter torso
- Recolour of the berserker helmet's horns to black/brown.
- Recolour of the different godswords' special attacks. For instance, AGS currently has white spirals when speccing. An upgrade could change the white spirals to blue or red.


More to come...
