As expensive and time consuming as 99 summoning is I still like the idea of a 120 summoning. More familiars and possible more dnds for different methods of training. This would make time, gp and grind worth it.

But, like many said before, summoning is imbalanced for future 120 so note if you want 120 summoning:

-> Time to grind charms
-> Time to run to obby
-> Cost of summoning supplies

Let me respond to the above:

For charms, just do slayer with charming imp. You passively get charms training multiple skills, including slayer, combat and when using charms, summoning. PLus you get slayer points and gp to boot. Therefore, no problem with charms.

Time taken to level up from 1 to 99 doing the classic obby runs should be about 7 hours at most. From 99 to 120, 12 hours or 6 hours with dxp using blue charms, crafting geysers.

Now that the above two has no problems now, we have the final problem:
Cost

I think the cost of materials are too high, and the pouches they create are usually a huge loss. Already you have put in time and effort and charms into pouches. I think it is unfair to also throw away gp.

Therefore, I have only one rework:

Make spirit shards 1 gp each

This is because we cant artificially lower the prices of tertiary or secondary ingredients. Also, since pouches are 1 gp each, why cant also spirit shards. We can leave the original number of shards required per pouch the same but we cannot keep sinking money into shards like this.

Right now, shards are used as currency. This is not how theyre supposed to be used: they should be used in summoning. And this is where my idea is appropriate: to give shards their original purpose and save money for the sake of everyone.

Before you can buy shards and sell shards at 25 gp. With my suggestion, you sell and buy shards at 1 gp. No difference from before, except that when you use up shards on pouches that can hardly sell, you waste 1 gp per shard instead of 25. Win-win for everyone right?

tbh this thread is so pathetic that i think shards sohuld be 1b gp each so u'll never be 120 summ and only elite players will.

cry

edit: sorry i read this and i was have a bad day

shards cant go from 25 gp to 1 gp dude, they are way for players acumulate gold after max cash... they actually worth gp... if u make them from 25 to 1 would put so much gold in the game.. u have no ideia how many problems this would cause lol

How exactly is this “pathetic?”
Shard were never meant to be a secondary currency or they would have been added to the currency pouch by now. The fact that you are being so aggressive about this shows how immature and unable to comprehend a simple subject you are.

With that being said it makes PERFECT sense for Shards to be the same price as pouches especially since you can get shards now from geodes while mining which would make more come into the game retroactively.

Fully support shards being 1gp

Party hats were never meant to be an expensive rare item people wanted. Back in 2001 people who got the party hat was considered the loser of the cracker draw. So really the argument of what is meant to be has no bearing whatsoever.

Shards are used by a large majority to store their wealth because you cannot have more than one stack of coins and taking that away from them you would be removing a LOT of wealth from a massive amount of players, it would be like making all rare items untradable and therefore worthless.

The language in the OP clearly shows OP is aware of this and is just trying to piss of people, but as you know if someone wants to take away everything from you, they mean well and you're just stupid and immature...

What about the people with a max cash stack of spirit shards?
Spirit shards should never drop below 25gp each.
Besides you can get a lot of money back cause u can swap or sell the pouches
Its not that expensive that we need to ruin peoples banks cause u cant afford the stuff needed to skill
Sharks go Moo. Fact.
