I mean, other people having no problem with group bosses just shows that they managed to find a group to do it, not necessarily that they even did the boss in the first place.

It's obviously not true, but lets propose that every single person with a Completionist Cape had leeched their group boss kills or had to pay a fee to sit in a corner and do nothing, regardless of the difficulty of finding a group to do it or not.

Would that, in any way, make the Reaper title a good requirement for the cape?
In a requirement sense, yes.
In a "this is quality gameplay" sense, most people would say no.


Proposing a more realistic situation, 50% of the people who want to earn a Completionist Cape (lets just say 1,000 people for simplicity) have the gear and means to do so outside of finding _ more people who want to do those bosses.


As they said on the livestream, a Completionist Cape doesn't necessarily have to mean you've done everything ever, but it should mean you've put your feet in the water in most of the content in the game.

The problem that's arising for many people (and Jagex included, as it's convoluting the definition of this Completionist Cape) is that once we get past Solak (as Solak appears to be the last boss in terms of "high tier PvM" for many people), we're potentially going to see bosses that are in the playing field of being completed only by the top 0.1% of PvMers, the true hardcores, not just the general PvMers and Completionist Hunters. At least, that's the way it seems it's going to go with the demands of the PvM community.

While a Completionist should have dabbled in a majority of the game, should it also be tied with being part of the top 0.1% of the playerbase?



While it is a lofty goal and rightful so, I think people can agree (maybe not you) that if you've done a wide slew of content, tying the cape to doing something so obviously restricting is problematic.

Again, the clue is in the name. It's called the Completionist Cape. It implies you have completed all notable ingame content. PVM is a huge part of the game. If anything, you're just pointing out the fact that trimmed is unnecessary, and that comp should just have all the trimmed reqs.

The only reason Jagex even has trimmed vs comp is to give less motivated players a cop-out.


The only reason Jagex even has stats on the Completionist Cape is to give less motivated players something to strive for.
