Spears and halberds were low in price and not used much, so Jagex went and made a boss that can only be effectively harmed by these weapons: the corporeal beast! Jagex went and looked at their graphs, saw that they were being used more, and determined success. But they were only being used at the boss, and the increased prices actually discouraged use outside of the boss.

Similarly in function are the dragon hunter crossbow, the dragon hunter lance, and the arclight, dealing extra damage to dragons, dragons, and demons, respectively.

As another example, the crossbow was created to usefulize ranging at dragons, and inflate high-level range gear.

This works, but not well, and it's many drawbacks will ruin the economy and the meta progressively more and more over time, until the game is a pathetic wreck and they make old school old school Runescape.
hey 94 agility! and now back to your regularly scheduled program.
Oh, wait, it's over.


Well, discuss.

Support, though an integrity fix such as this shouldn't need it!

I don't see why I would make a suggestion if I didn't support it.

I kinda hoped no one would notice.

i disagree. i like the idea of weapons that are good against a specific enemy type but blow ass for everything else.

That is artificial usefulizing, and it is wrong, bad, and unhealthy for the game, a terrible method of altering prices and the meta. It's just fake. It doesn't matter if you "like the idea", what matters is that it will kill RuneScape. It's much like another taboo in gaming, artificial difficulty, which you can find information about in a very nice YT video.

so every game that ever employed the use of weaknesses would be objectively better without them? taking out the elements in final fantasy? taking out the rock/paper/scissors mechanic in runescape PVP? taking out types in pokemon?

i don't see how the hell that would make em better. sounds retarded. and this is embedded in runescape a fair bit already. with certain enemies weak to certain attack styles. i dont see an issue of certain weapons giving you an edge.
