Max cape should have the best stats in the game.


Howcome you think this?

I don't think a cape that requires all that skilling should be the best combat cape in the game, I'd rather they deserve that for a ridiculously hard challenge (like the fight caves, but a lot harder)

Lots of good updates here that I'll vote yes to, but I'll go in a little bit more detail for some other questions.

What I will absolutely vote no to is max capes. These capes simply add more of this very toxic ''no xp waste'' mentality to the game, which I personally see as a big threat to the game. The capes are also not needed, people who have achieved level 99 in each stat already have access to every piece of content in the game basically, that's enough to me. A cape would only be used to show off and add more of the toxic mentality mentioned above. Should they pass, please don't ever make them the best cape in the game, just keep the stats the normal skillcapes have.

I like the idea of converting Zulrah's unique items into scales, this should help them to keep a higher value and make the unique items also cheaper to use.

I also really like the idea of the fishing trawler outfit, this would give the minigame a much needed boost in activity. Definitely a yes.

Total level worlds? I remember when these were added on the maingame and I don't like them at all.

Overall nice blog.


You're only saying no to the max cape because you can't obtain one. Who care if people want to show off that they're maxed? It's a great achievement that takes a long time to get.


Clearly didn't read my post, well, I have highlighted why I vote no.

Now please take your asinine talk somewhere else..

Finally, Max cape poll :) I really hope it passes, i've waited far too long for it to fail. I'd be devastated. But probably the NMZ prods that dont like it when people show off real achievements will vote no to it sadly.

Also the total level worlds will be real nice.

Max cape with no stats with the ability to combine it with (1) of the best in slot capes isn't asking for much, and you do need non-combat skill requirements for quite a few combat stat boosting gear such as barrows gloves/neitznot helm/ardy cloak 4. Stop arguing nonsense. The only incentive for maxing is for a cosmetic cape.
So you think because outdated methods of giving combat content all should be the same? If that's the logic you're using, why not go further back to where there was no make-x, should we remove all make-x because some skills don't have it? or go back to where all useful combat items were tradable and buyable from stores[rune]?

No thanks. Need to put a stop to it somewhere, and this game, where we have a say in the content, is a good place to to that.

Question: Should Zilyana drop an item that permanently removes the darkness in the Zamorakian area of Godwars when consumed?

I've always wanted to see how Kril and his minions look in the flesh. That room is so dark that you can hardly see the black demon mager.

It's cosmetic... not best in slot...meaning it's not a combat update from skills.

Give me a good reason why after thousands of hours getting max stats, that we shouldnt be able to get a cosmetic cape that shows people have all 99s

I would like to see all of the Capes of Distinction again if this is possible please. This includes the Completionist Cape. I don't mind different emotes at all, and which leads me into my idea I had.

For the Milestone Capes (if they pass in a poll) is add an emote to them. This emote would be almost the same one for each cape tier, but the tier of equipment you're wearing scales with the level of the Milestone Cape. Similar to how the 99 Dungeoneering emote was on RS2, you would appear to be wearing a full set of equipment depending on the weapon type you were wielding.

So let's say I put on the 30 Milestone Cape and do the emote wielding a dragon scimitar. Since the cape is the third tier, I would be seen wearing full steel and attacking with a steel longsword, then would change back into my normal self. If I equip my magic shortbow and do the emote, I would be seen wearing full snakeskin wielding a willow longbow. I would attack with it and then change back. Wielding nothing will default to melee.

Here's a breakdown of how the tiers should be for the Milestone cape level and equipment tier respectively, using plate armor as an example:

10/bronze, 20/iron, 30/steel, 40/mithril, 50/adamant, 60/rune, 70/dragon (full dragon), 80 barrows, 90 GWD or best in slot. Basically 90 is whatever the best armor in the game is for that combat style.

There are some tricky parts to this, as I don't think there's a tier of mage armor to match each tier of Milestone Cape. For the barrows equipment, wielding the following weapons would go with the sets: spear or hasta/Guthan, 1h/Verac, 2h/Dharok, 1h + defender/Torag, ranged weapon/Karil, staff/Ahrim.

I would like to see the 80 emote be like how the 120 Dungeoneering emote was on RS2, where you're fighting off 3 monsters.

The 90 emote should be more special in some way or possibly transition into the new Max emote we may be getting soon, since that's basically a 99 Milestone Cape.
