Okay so Jagex has been working hard. They've created a fun game with plenty of content and that's all good. Big love.

They've put out some content here recently that's been fun and engaging. However, and this happens anytime new stuff comes out, there's quite a few people complaining all the time about this and that being "overpowered," until it causes jagex to scale back their amazing content.

I feel as though certain items and activities are overpowered because they represent a serious investment of both gp and serious time to be able to acquire, and them being overpowered is to reward you for your time and effort.

You spent a year saving gp to be able to afford a twisted bow, how mad would you be if shortly after purchase it became reduced to the equivilent of slightly better than a magic longbow? Or you train combat through slayer for months to get to Konar to make money, when suddenly her drops are reduced to nothing, and the whole mechanisms for the activity changes to some nonsense to make the complainers happy. Uugghh.

Everything good that Jagex comes out with is shouted down by bitter people who are mad. Of course barrows is overpowered, it requires a serious investment of time and a few months of membership to get that far, shouldn't the reward be awesome to validate the time spent making it happen? Nightmare zone should be more powerful, i dont feel as though there is enough incentive in it anymore now that theres a limit on points and herbboxes. A limit that is reached all too quickly, making nmz not worth playing now.

Certain things are overpowered for a reason, and should stay that way. Ive recently put 3 months of work into the karamja diaries to be able to use underground gem mine. Which is overpowered as hell, but if it is reduced at all I will feel as though all my time was wasted and will quit playing.

Trust your first instincts, Jagex, dont listen to the minority whom only wanna rob the game of its fun and magic and sense.

Git gud nubnub, L2integrity. The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented. After the ditch passes the 7th poll attempt, it'll be implemented an hour before the poll closes because it's actually important. Deal with it.

So far I've invested my time and resources into several things that were awesome at first, but then reduced and nerfed and made into a waste of my time investments. Like nmz, i did alot of quests and invested alot of money just to discover a limit on every reward offered. Or konar. When konar came out i dropped everything to grind up to be able to get tasks from her for a chance at her awesome drop table. As soon as I was able her drop table was severely reduced, and now has become some key drops unnecessary hassle of bullshit that i miss because its easy to overlook a key on the ground while playing on a mobile device. Thats just to name a few. Wont mention how hunter and thieving were both slowed wayy down with exp reductions, trees take longer to cut, and how underpowered melee and mage have become.


I just feel like all my incentive to continue playing this game is being taken away, and if it continues to happen then Idk, guess ill fckoff down the road with my bad self. But that would suck. Runescape has been a big part of my and my families life since I was 11 or 12 years old. Im 26 now and we all still play.

But we've all been noticing the reductions and nerfings and 86ings, and it has us all feeling robbed just because a few elite players feel like the items and activities weve worked hard to attain and achieve are over powered and too much fun to use. If they had it their way I'm sure the game would be a lame tedious grind with only 2options of training each lvl. The tediously boring way and the outrageously expebsive way, and you would only profit after 99 in at least 12 skills.

These people obviously hate fun and dislike accumulating wealth lol.

That's just how I feel about it. Sorry for rambling. Byee!!

lol its not about being good or bad. Someone will use NMZ to max out their own combat and then turn around and join in complaining that its too op to make it take longer for the next guy. Thought is reality, reality is illusion.

Its a pretty serious issue. If I gotta get half my skills to 99 before I see equivelent incentive or reward then its not worth training those skills for that long. Might as well just go read a book or whatever else. Its making the game seriously boring and its avtively screwing people. My brother saved up for a year of grinding to afford 3rd age gear and a twisted bow and a godsword, and he said it was all prenerfed and not better enough to justify the price. He said he felt like his effort was wasted and quit playing. I mean it doesnt seem like much but thats $10 a month or $120 a year of bussiness jagex lost for every person who feels this way. I know of 15 friends, so 15x120 equals 1800 tht jagex lost just right there. 1920 if I quit, and where Im from 1920 is close to the average persons monthly salary and a pretty big deal.

Idk just stop reducing stuff, if anything we need to scale shit up. Increase. Its mostly underpowered right now and alotta stuff aint worth doing.

It isn't all about you. Other players spend time and effort working on their accounts in the game too and if the content they want to do is devalued by the content you want, then something has to budge. People spend hundreds of hours to get to be able to chop magic logs only to see them get dropped 100 at a time by Konar. People spend hundreds of hours fishing and questing to unlock monkfish, only to see them dropped 300 at a time by Konar. People spend hundreds of hours training their farming levels to unlock high level herbs that they can do on herb runs, only to see that Konar dropped 100-200 of them at a time. People spend hundreds of hours leveling mining only to see Konar drop a dozen noted runite ore, hundreds of noted gold ore, 500 noted coal or iron ore. Jagex don't really care much about skillers or game integrity so the droptable, and many others, are still broken in this sense.

What is enjoyably overpowered for you is completely gamebreaking for other people, your exciting drops can crash prices of a resource and ruin a skill for others. Consider other people when you demand your content to be brokenly op at the expense of others.

Skilling shouldn't be a major money maker though. As most skilling is brain dead afking. I do agree resource drops are outta hand but if you want to make good money you should have to be skilled to make it.
