HI all,

Just wanted to write this as I think this necklace needs a more major buff.

Currently if you want to get the item as a drop and wield it this is what you need:

- Complete grandmaster quest (200 quest points, 70 smith, 68 mining, other high stats)
- grandmaster quest in itself is hard with the bosses in the quest to be killed
- be able to kill lvl 732 vorkath! (potentially atleast 1,000 times)
- the drop of the necklace is 1/1,000
- you need 80 PRAYER to even wield it!
- you have to pick up bones and bury them for it to restore prayer (if yu use piety/rigour/augury the time taken to bury them would be a waste of prayer points in relation to how much gained)
- to add bonecrusher you need to complete a hard diary which involve a large number of tasks, quests and higher level stats

So with the bone crusher you auto-bury and gain prayer. No offensive stats at all. The bonuses you loose with replacing it for this necklace i dont think are worth it as the rate to which you often use prayer is faster than you would kill things.

I propose a SMALL buff is made to tip it over the edge because currently it is not worth doing al the quests, stats and killing vorkath for a 1/1,000 drop.

The suggestion (made by multiple people) would be to offer a sink for things like glories or other amulets which are predominantly used for teleporting so there are so many in the game. I would suggest that this necklace can absorb glories and it would take the accuracy stats, or part of the glory stats with NO strength bonus added.

This then becomes a more prayer/accuracy based necklace (a bit like a brimstone ring in terms of accuracy) with no overpowered things like strength bonus.

This also means the total amount of glories in game will decrease, the price will be much better for glories as well as them still being useful due to their strength bonuses!

When charging the Dragonstone Necklace it could turn into a Glorified Dragonstone Necklace that has charges.

No. It's okay that it isn't the best-in-slot item. It has its niche, and that's okay.

Since luring nubnubs into the wilderness to be victims won't work, we should force them to anti-PK by preventing them from leaving the wilderness until they PK a couple of targets.

"you need 80 prayer to even wield it" as if it'll be of any use when not worn l0l. Since luring nubnubs into the wilderness to be victims won't work, we should force them to anti-PK by preventing them from leaving the wilderness until they PK a couple of targets.

A couple of points:

Few enough monsters drop bones when you are in the combat range of doing Vorkath with 80 Prayer. (Bosses you want B2P, otherwise it is mostly Slayer and most Slayer monsters don't drop bones)

A Glory is 14k now. A glory seriously outclasses this.

Using the rare 95 Slayer drop on the Dragonbone Necklace saves 1 inventory space at places where inventory is not at a premium.

The two options are simple:
-Give the Dragonbone Necklace the same stats as a Glory
-Combining the Morytania Hard/Elite Diary with the 1/1k Vorkath drop and the 1/xyz 95 Slayer Drop makes the Alchemical Bonecrusher which works from your inventory to restore prayer and crush bones

Otherwise I am happy to use a Stole and a Prayer Potion for the same slots, same effect, 10m less percent work.

As if you can't go back and kill monsters that drop bones any time you want. As if the Slayer masters don't give tasks for monsters that drop bones every kill. 25/30 Duradel tasks drop bones every kill, for example.

So this argument that few monsters drop bones when you're at that high a level is nonsense.

Nope. This is the BiS Prayer neck, and offers a very unique effect. Not everything nexts to have accuracy and Strength bonuses to be useful.

Inventory space is always a premium, and the necklace can be used anywhere you want to use it, so this makes no sense.

No. It should remain a niche item. Not every item needs to have offensive stats. It's okay to have items that are good for only a few things, like Prayer.

Isn't that pretty much the exact same thing? It does work from your inventory, by the way.

The Stoles have +10 Prayer bonus, not +12, and saving that inventory slot means 1 of anything you want, including Prayer Potions, so...

"Same effect?" No.
I'll keep score from now on.

95% of this is the OP over-exaggerating the requirements. Makes him sound like a complete failure, one of those typical casuals who can barely kill Zulrah if even that. 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.

Flaming people doesn't make you correct.

Try actually articulating a logical argument against the suggestion instead of just insulting the OP.

He does have a point though that the Op is waaaay over exaggerating the requirements especially because...y'know....you can buy the thing on the G.E, meaning the only requirement you need, not anyone needs, butt he only requirement you specifically need is 80 prayer.
