Hello, RuneScape community!

In the most recent Gold Premier Club Q&A, when questioned about why we have not seen any additional retro armour set continuations on the Soloman's General Store lately, Mod Sayln offered the following response:

Original message details are unavailable.
Is there a particular reason why we have not seen retro armour set continuations lately?

Mod Sayln: We felt like we did a lot of these, and also felt like we did the ones people were interested in seeing. If there is more demand for other retro items we can always look into making more!


In the acknowledgment of this, I have authored this thread - in the hope of offering it as a commons to manifest the demand for additional retro armour set continuations on the Soloman's General Store.

If you would like to see more retro/replica items on the Soloman's General Store, please comment saying so below. :)

Please observe the following considerations before posting:
* This thread is a general appeal for the interest of developing additional retro armour sets, not specific items - though you are more than welcome to suggest a particular retro item you would like to see made available in Soloman's General Store.
* This this thread is, by no means, a guarantee that additional retro/replica items will be produced.

[...] Clearly the forums weren't read often then. These forums are *FILLED* with retro requests and people(myself included) have voiced want for retro items at player council meetings with positive group reactions.


Sadly, that is often the case - yet few threads addressing the issue ever receive their attention, if not their notice. In fact, in order to ensure that it was reiterated, the original question proposed was:

Is there a particular reason why we have not seen retro armour set continuations lately? The Soloman's General Store forum is often filled with request threads (the most common being retro white/initiate/proselyte armours, retro Castle Wars armours, the retro kiln cape, retro gilded rune, the retro slayer helm, et cetera), but no plans for new retro sets appear to be on the priority list (despite the apparent consumer interest).


As you said:

[...] Player demand has always been in plain sight and the fact nothing came of it for this long says enough.


My hope is that, in taking a straightforward approach which addresses the response offered to us, progress may be made. :)

I would think this year, if any, would present the greatest opportunity for them to expand on the currently offered selection of retro items - given the course and nature of the 15th Anniversary celebrations.

Thank you all very much for your support thus far! :)

As long as it is an issue of importance to members of the RuneScape community, I will continuously take any efforts necessary to preserve this thread to manifest the demand for retro items.

Hopefully they have taken a notice to the clear consumer interest in more retro armours, or will do so very soon!

Used your thread to give an example of heavily supported retro overrides threads in the November VIP Q&A, hope you don't mind! :P

Let's hope they'll pay more attention to what the players actually want..


I'm perfectly happy to lend this thread as an example of a heavily supported retro overrides thread. :)

I will be sincerely looking forward to the response!

Update:

Another player asked a similar question to the most recent VIP Q&A; Mod Kalaya offered this response to the query:

Mod Kalaya said:
Is there any update we can get on releasing more retro items to the store yet?


Mod Kalaya: We don’t have any plans for additional retro items at the moment, but we’re very aware of how much players like them and will always keep that in mind!
