I think its time for a new shieldbow. I'm thinking it could be the first tier 91 item (There are plenty of tier 92s, but no tier 91s. Go figure.)

Feel free to get into specifics down below!

The reason there's no t91 is because the stats difference between 90 and 91 is so minimal. Some gear like elite tect vs tect only has 1 magic bonus difference. We don't need that many tiers, we don't need such minimal upgrades, what we need are side-grades, new equipment with similar stats to existing ones but have niche uses/specs/abilities.

I don't do purple text on my OPs, to avoid being annoying, and the current best shieldbow, the strykebow, is only T85, so it wouldn't be that minimal.

What about some kind of new drop that can be added to nox bow changing it from the normal t90 bow into a t90 or t92 shield bow?

Very good concept, though as it's part of a set, things could get a little tricky. And, as stated above, I'm thinking T91, so there can at least be something of that tier. Though, if it was a nox attachment, it would probably be T90.

On one hand yeah as a nox attachment it could make the shield bow as t90, but on the other hand there is the possibility of the attachment being dropped by a higher tier boss like solak which could also account for the t92

Well that's just my thoughts about it though.

The main problem with that thought-as cool as a noxious shieldbow sounds-as I mentioned, It's part of a set, and just upgrading one would be a bit odd, Kinda like being able to refine anima core armor of Zamorak but not of Seren, or having an upgrade for the off-hand ascension crossbow (But not its main-hand counterpart), or the staff of Sliske-which is already better than the other Telos weaponry (But not for the other two)

Having Solak drop it sounds appropriate, as Solak has very few drops as it is, and the drops it does have do have to do with blight, after all. But even if it dropped upgrades for the other pieces of noxious weaponry, "to shieldbow" is kind of a unique, unparalleled upgrade type...

Hmmmmm.......

That doesn't explain why it should be t91 - not 90 or 92.

I generally wouldn't be too opposed to a new shieldbow, whether it would be a new drop or an upgrade of something existing. But it might be better if it was something entirely new since the darkbow is already used to make a strykebow, the strykebow degrades back to the item used to make it and nothing relevant would exist otherwise.

Another option could be introducing one at t80 (since nothing exists at that point as well) + an upgrade item for t90.

Well - the first reply answered that already: It invalidates both t90 and 92 as relevant progression slots. Unless the t92 will be obtainable with a comparable effort nobody will use that (since the increase in stats is irrelevant), if it is your t91 item is useless - invert the situation to have the same issue for t90.

If you think t90, 91 and 92 could exist alongside one another you've clearly not understood how itemisation works.
