Abridged version of someone else's points against Warding, mixed in with my own

1) The purpose of warding is to introduce a new skill centered around crafting magical armors. Why do we need this? We don't need to craft hundreds of sets of zammy and wizard robes

2) It's basically just crafting with extra steps. The fact that you have to run to the altars and craft there is just unnecessary hassle for the sake of "different gameplay"

3) It doesn't provide much new content. It sets a new precedent of taking old content in the game that was fine and putting in the new skill just for the sake of having a new skill. You know that the skill is lacking when they have to steal old content to make up for it.

4) It doesn't fit into the game. A skill that tries to fit in but brings no real impact.

5) By making it crafting with extra steps, it's an attempt to make an OSRS version of Divination and Invention. Especially the deconstruction; that screams RS3 to me. This is OLD School RuneScape. I want to keep only the OLD School skills (but new bosses, areas, gear, etc. are fine). You want warding, send it to RS3.

OSRS is the REAL RuneScape and always was. No wonder EOC official video has over 80% dislikes on YT.

Everyone makes their own decision. Because you do not feel it fits doesn't mean everyone does. I think it should have been available every since rsc. Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

In actual 2006, Runescape was getting like 2 skills a year. To not have a skill in such a long period of time, is in fact, quite RS3-esque.

You could have stronger arguments against slayer, or hunter as skills. Warding is a great idea, the problem is Jagex is trying to shoehorn a lot of different content into it, like some faux-summoning additions. Keep it simple.

Agree with removing content from elsewhere though. It's unnecessary.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!

One of the most frustrating arguments against Warding is that it "isn't Oldschool" to add new content. But those that put forward that argument are perfectly fine with gamebreaking PvM content, easyscape skilling QoL's and almost non-existent risk from death in the game.

New quests, new areas, new bosses, new slayermasters, an entire new CONTINENT, new weapons, rehashed rs3 content like rev caves. All fine for these people but they shriek rs3 at the mere mention of polling 1 new skill. If the poll fails because this line of thinking I think Jagex should just force it in. They'd be more justified to say it is an integrity issue than they are when they force in most of their PvP changes IMO.

I'm still on the fence about it. The conjuring aspect of it (it's summoning) is a hard no I think I would vote yes to the skill if that didn't come with it. Bring memes to OSRS general forum

1. Yes, we do. By your logic, we don't need to fucking craft hundreds of rune platebodies or green d'hide chaps.

2. And slayer is just combat with extra steps.

3. Neither does firemaking, woodcutting, fishing, cooking, fletching, runecrafting, etc.

4. Yes, it does. It also brings a very large impact. Have you even read the dev blog?

5. Rofl, 90% of our content us literally just copy pasted from RS3. Zulrah, Demonic gorillas, Raids, tentacle whip, the list goes on.
Don't spite vote all PvP updates because of how frightened you are of PKers and then cry about how everything needs to be shoved in as integrity

That last line isn't an opinion. It's a fact rofl.
