First of all, I recently found out about OSRS and I really appreciate the effort. I played for quite some time in the 00s, and I'm enjoying the nostalgia a lot.

The XP drops feature is very nice, except for one thing: I can now see whether or not I hit before the hitsplat appears. This somewhat diminishes my experience of combat, because I now get the 'dopamine rush' from the XP drops, and not from the hitsplats, as I originally experienced in RuneScape 2. Also, it may give players who use XP drops in PvP an 'unfair' edge over players who don't, because they can see this information earlier.

I know I can disable XP drops, but I prefer to still use the feature.

My proposed solution is to delay the moment when the XP drops (and progress bar!) appear so that it appears after the hitsplats. This would give us the original experience where the first feedback we get is through the hitsplats.

What do you think?

Only if its toggleable. I prefer to have my exp drops before the hit splats.

Keeping it toggleable would still allow for the 'unfair edge' in PvP. But I agree that this should be an option in the poll.

Its not an unfair edge, its even in the vanilla client. If people would chose to have their exp drops after the hit splat in pvp, its up to them. Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for pointing that out! So if this were to be polled, I think the options should be:

* Do nothing.
* Add an option to delay the XP drops so that they appear after the hitsplats.
