This would be a new revs unique. It would have no special attack but be a magic-based melee weapon similar to bloodvelds' attack meaning that it'd tear through melee armor. The special effect is that the lower hp your enemy has, the higher it'd hit. This would scale based off of percent health so for example, 9 hp left at lvl 90 hp would scale the same amount as 1 hp left at lvl 10 hp. Discuss. 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.

Also, start using this concept for future PvP uniques. Find weapons and gear made specifically to counter another build just as this counters Dharoks' brutally. The granite maul and dragon spear are also broken weapons that should be possible to counter in some way.

Attack speed etc? What kind of tier would this be?

How much scaling are we talking?

If this weapon is stats like scim or better, it will be too OP in PvP. Keep in mind magic based melee attacks break the triangle due to the weapon acting like basically a 3-4 way switch for magic, due to the way magic accuracy works. This is why Korasi basically broke PvP in the other RS, and that was limited to a special attack. You're suggesting it as base attacks now.

Also, would this work against mage only bosses in PvM, because that's broken.

Edit for clarity

Lol mage only bosses so scorpia and that's it because a melee weapon can't hit kraken and it would suck at scorpia anyway. Mage by itself sucks in PvM.

Scorpia and Sire would be weaker to magic based melee. My concern is that something like this could also cripple future "magic" bosses, because most people would rather use a melee weapon that doesn't need runes for the new "magic" bosses. My Suggestion:

You wouldn't use this at scorpia for sure because you would get destroyed by melee attacks and sire is not a mage only boss you use mage/range for the first part (twisted bow comes out on top so range in the end will dominate) and then melee for the second part and this weapon is definitely not going to be used for it.

I can't see this devaluing a future mage boss either because if that mage boss doesn't utilize keeping an enemy away from you like scorpia does and have good range defence it will lose to range every time that's the problem we currently have. This weapon only starts to get good when the enemy is lower hp as well so that means for most of the fight it would suck and be a wasted slot it's like the reverse of ruby bolts.

Going to ask the question that should have been asked when twisted bow was being released how much damage would this thing do exactly?


Fuck if I know. I never number crunch anything. If ANY of my suggestions have exact numbers, Rem did it for me. I only come up with the concept.

I mean if it has full hp, it'd be near useless similar to a Twisted Bow on a monster with a low magic defense. Perhaps Viggora's Chainmace at the start and then a switch at best? It's gonna be REALLY hard to out-DPS those new revs uniques.

Idk, toss a damage cap if needed. This whole d spear, ancient mace, g maul, high damage specs, etc is getting so old lol. We need to spice it up by adding new counters to the regular traditional builds in PvP.
