Here is what i think they should do to improve combat with Leg and EoC.

-Add the step back and barge abilities to legacy to allow us some movement. As of now, EoC far overplays legacy at PvM. To improve that, and combat in general, add a price to using the barge and the Rangers Step back one. Take away part of our run energy as price for using it. This alone makes this ability/ies a good idea to be added to legacy interfaces and give legacy some interesting potential. Offence and Defence with legacy has always been simple and thus making it unique. Keeping it simple is best for legacy and making it (EoC) more challenging is what EoC is good for (IMO). I do believe that Increasing or finding a way to increase the recharge of our special ability bar is needed. I DO BELIEVE that legacy and EoC SHOULD be seen as equals and as Runescape 3's combat systems. Rs3 should not have only one main combat system (EoC) and Jagex really need to look at Updating Legacy with the above mentioned things. They SHOULD NOT change how legacy is, but instead improve upon it.

Legacy and EoC should be seen as equal and all bosses should be made and re-worked with the idea of Legacy and EoC being Runescapes (3) combat systems.

There are other things that might be good ideas to add or change for legacy/EoC. One might be a way for legacy users to heal, sacrificing their Special Bar energy (I personally thing this is a great idea).

Of course, if they do not want to re-work bosses to make the two systems equal, then at least give us some legacy only bosses. Forcing EoC on us as you did was not wise, and you have tried to change and impress. But instead, you need to embrace the two together, instead of keeping EoC in the light and Legacy in the back, as the shadow of the past.

You're lucky to even have legacy combat mode. Don't expect to get anything tailored to your outdated version of the game.

This isn't going to do anything... The game already caters to players who don't want to use specific things. Personally I don't want to use a zgs so I think a r2h should have equal stats to a zaros godsword because I'd rather use a rune 2h, but that shouldn't happen. It's too difficult to balance things around 2 forms of combat. Legacy already got buffed more then a year ago. You can already do all the content you need in legacy. The way you are saying it is like saying legacy is 1 race and eoc is another race. It's not discrimination that eoc has higher dps, It's intended to be that way. Osrs has a better combat system then legacy because they only have 1 that all can enjoy. Osrs also has a runelite client which have advantages over the regular client. You need to use a different client in osrs to get advantages over others. In rs3 everyone has the ability to access eoc without using a different client. We only need 1 form of combat we can all enjoy.

https://runescape.wiki/w/Legacy_Mode#Progress_update

This was given during the development of Legacy Mode and still holds true to this day:

Legacy will not have:
Changes to bosses
Its own set of equipment and monster stats (so no Legacy locked bosses)
Changes to how experience is earned
Action bars and Abilities



EDIT: The only intention with Legacy is to offer returning players something familiar before launching them into EoC. That's why when old players first log in, they get Legacy interface and combat, and then they can learn new content and whatnot without being entirely confused.

If it were up to me, Legacy would've been removed two years ago.

This could be the future. It might be time to change the combat system or the way it works. Runescape 3 is nothing and is going to continue to decline, even if new content it made and added. It is time to stop denying the truth. Combine and live on too will the community man! Peace, love and prosperity dudes! There are plenty of ways that I know of to make Runescape better for todays generation. Deniers will be lost forever to the truth.
