the older content and the all content already in the game affects us every time we play so instead of focusing on just making new content jagex should do a huge amount of work looking at old content in the game and looking for ways to improve everything to just make it all better.

after this ha been done for a while im sure more people would play because the game is just better in general.

then while making new content always have a little work done in quality of life or improving old content with each update when new content comes out

this suggestion is too vague to be here. telling jagex to "do a huge amount of work looking at old content in the game and looking for ways to improve everything to just make it all better." gives jagex a free pass to do WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT. including ruin the game further, although thats inevitable.

be specific. i was when i made my shades of mort'ton quality of life thread.

I actually think the vagueness of this post is appropriate, because the very nature of content balancing / QOL fixing involves consideration of the runescape world in a holistic sense.

Yes, it's a huge amount of work, but at the end of the day runescape shouldn't be about bankstanding or killing instanced monsters that drop ridiculous amounts of resources with zero risk.

There's a whole "rest of the game" that's been largely forgotten about. The fact that players *aren't* being driven by existing content is a rather compelling reason to revisit it.

agree, and jagex is incorrectly thinking it needs to be fixed, rather than improved, as they said in the most recent blog.

the rooftop agility courses are maybe the best example of what needs to be done more. nothing at all added except a new way to use a bunch of stuff that was already there. all the recent updates have added new items but always in the same way - through monster drops, which makes no use of anything already in the game but now unused. instead of new stuff to just get dropped, there should be new stuff to be made, and new uses for old stuff. another great example was the STASH update, no new items whatsoever it was just an added utility based on the construction skill which was already in game.

prime real estate:
runecrafting. currently used for nothing other than getting xp, as it's so much easier to just buy runes. there should be some part of runecrafting that lets you do something to runes or to other items to improve them.
firemarking. who burns logs anymore? with wintertodt there's just no reason. bonfires easily comes to mind, but also improvements in the logs themselves. let us make special logs that burn hot enough to smelt, or enchanted torches (maybe even with the help of rc?) that provide boosts or benefits.
crafting, smithing, and fletching. all currently used to make stuff that nobody uses, with the exception of jewellery. the amethyst bolts and smithing requirement for dragon armour was a great start but it needs more. how about crafting better bowstrings and using fletching to upgrade bows? smithing extensions or better edges for existing weapons, just like the tentacle on the whip but requiring the use of features already in game instead of just monster drops?

just spitballing. give me your own ideas?

" fixing involves consideration of the runescape world in a holistic sense." which is exactly WHY specifics are needed, so people can scrutanize the changes. and predict potential problems. case in point,

rooftop courses were the perfect example of what NOT to do. they are superior to all other courses in terms of exp gain PLUS you get unique rewards for running them. they need a nerf, but jagex doesnt care.

Rooftop courses are slower XP than the alternatives.

sounds like you are not against the rooftop courses, only how they were implemented?
i agree, there should be more options, not better options which make the others already in place irrelevant. it's the same problem with all the drops of late, they're so much better than doing the actual skills that no-one skills anymore. there should be equal alternatives.
