So Menaphos is already in the game but there is no content yet.. So I was thinking why not make a part 2 of Desert treasure with access to Menaphos and a whole new desert kind off raid. So you have to raid in something like a pyramid and you start at the bottom and the boss is on the top level of the pyramid, with mummys and shit.

Rewards will be:

New set of prayers(level 83,85 and 87) on a Ancient prayer book
Which gives almost the same offensive powers of Piety, Rigour and Augury but with the ability of also gaining 10% of the opponents level. But capped at 120. So when fighting something with the new mage prayer that has 150 magic and 100 def youll get mage + 12 and with def +10.

A new bis level 80 2-handed mage sceptre
I got 2 ideas on this:
Give it the possibility to cast a spell from the Ancients magics once per 30 seconds when on another spellbook than the Ancient magics, also give this attack a 20% damage boost.
Or give it a powerful autospell cast thats costs 3 bloods, 3 deaths and 2 chaos runes. Which gives the 40% chance to either heal, freeze, poison or lowers the targets attack. As from (Blood, Ice, Smoke and Shadow spells respectively). So its a 10% chance of freezing the target for example.

A new set of t75 ranged gear
The set will be dps offensive with less defences as Armadyl, but more attack and a total of +7 ranged strenght when wearing the full set.

A new shield
Just slightly more defences than the dfs. But with negative melee attack and +10 mage and ranged attack.
But give it the 20% chance to also heal, freeze, poison or lowers the targets attack when succesfully get hit.

I tried to make the rewards not to overpowered, but it was hard tough.
If you think its to overpowered id like to hear you guys opinions.

Jesus fuck, those new prayer ideas are atrocious. Love everything else though. 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.

The dragonfire ward and ancient wyvern shield are already the DFS, with +15 ranged and magic attack respectively, also that 20% for one of those 4 effects would be pretty op...especially for a shield.

The entire guthans set has a 25% chance of healing...and that requires 4 items, one of them being a 2 handed spear, this shield would be OP because anyone with a whip or dagger could use it and get healing just as good as someone in guthans, it would tank the price of SGS and guthans.

also like boabies said those prayers are super OP.

and the ability to swap spellbooks for a single spell is unique to the lunar spell book, and requires 99 magic as well as runes, if you want the staff to do it then i say it should also be a level 99 requirement to swap spell books, otherwise that spell becomes useless.

But im all for a raid/some actual high level content in the desert.

And if you want a staff reward, why not have something that boosts the damage of whatever ancients magic your casting, because your in the desert after all so its safe to assume any magic staff youd recieve there is tied to zaros.
either that or give it the ability to autocast ancients, maybe at the cost of double runes or something.

also i'd say make the ranged armour level 80, so people have to work a bit more for it

I just don't like the concept of anything requiring level 80 or higher. That should just be for extra prayer points and stuff. Tiers should end at 75, or 77 for prayer. Git gud nubnubs. L2PK nubnubs. Statuettes are here to stay nubnubs. Spite vote harder plz nubnubs.

Well at some point they need things being level 80 and higher...say we have two sets of level 75 armour each for melee, range and magic, one thats tanky and one for DPS....and in a year or 2 they want to release more combat equipment...what would they do then? they can't just make a third set of equipment at level 75 because who would ever use it when theres 2 sets allready existing, so at that point they'd need a higher tier of armour, no matter what happens at some point they will need to bring out new, higher tiered levels of armour if they want to add more content like high leveled raids, or bring stronger bosses into the game with new mechanics.

True but if we're talking about a new raid then it needs at least one or two BIS items to make it worth while.

No, that's a horrible idea to stop at those, meanwhile the rest of the skills have things above those levels. We need higher prayers, even jagex believes this, that's why they polled one and it BARELY failed.

I don't normally support player-designed quests, mostly because I can't be asked to read through their description. I'd rather wait for Jagex to poll something, vote yes, then hold spacebar through the whole thing.

I tend to care far more about the rewards than the quest itself, so as far as that goes, I really don't care.

That said, you've laid out some rewards:

Stat leech is really powerful. I'd rather this be a special attack on a weapon, or perhaps on a set of armor. Leeches stats based on the damage you take/deal, but does not stack. For example:

Player hits for 50, effect steals 10 of a skill.
Player hits for 40, no effect.
Player hits for 60, effect steals 12 of a skill (+2 from what was already stolen).

It doesn't have to be Prayers, either, but I'm okay if it is if it's an overhead like Smite.

No support. I think gear should be capped at 75. I'd much rather more lower level alternatives are added, or perhaps add more options on other slots before we start growing in power with our weapons.

There's still lots of love to be had in the Ammo slot, for example. Magic Scrolls instead of Blessings?

Only if it's degradable.

A new shield
A bit unclear on the details here. Can it do all of those effects, or is that a list of possible effects to choose from and the shield is only meant to have one of them?

If it has all the effects, hell no. If it has ONE effect, it'd depend on which effect you chose. I could maybe be okay with a heal or Attack reduction, though the latter wouldn't be wholly effective because not everything attacks with Melee.
I'll keep score from now on.
