Lets compare the Kopesh to an Elder Rune Longsword +5
They are both about 700k on the G.E.
They're both un-augmentable.

One is smith-able and is t85
The other is a VERY RARE 1/15000 high level slayer drop and is a t82

Thats kinda sad IMO. Kopesh is so useless that its hit its alch price and costs 3x as much to repair than to buy.

Kopesh could use a quick buff to t84~86. You could even keep the wield req at lv82 to increase its usefulness for lower level players who don't need the accuracy or perks that fury blades would offer. Its hard to make an accurate suggestion of where they should be without seeing how many currently exist in game / the rate at which they enter & exit, but you can take it in steps and start by making it t84. I don't really see how you could fuck it up.

The Elder Rune Longsword has lower stats than requirements - it still needs level 90, yet just offers t80-85 stats.

The Kopesh itself offers t82 stats for an 82 req. It also can be upgraded to a t92 weapon. Also t84/86 certainly would even be more useless due to a ton of weapons at 85 - why should I exactly use the kopesh?

The problem is due to extremely cheap drygore weapons almost every one-handed melee weapon in that level range is prone to be not worth much. That's why ripper claws are so much cheaper than every other raptor weapon, that's why fury blades are so much cheaper than any other GWD2 weapon.

Because its the only other stab weapon besides fury blades, but would do more damage with less accuracy,

Gores could honestly use a reduction in droprate as well, and the level 96 slayer weapon drops could be buffed to bit too, with ripper claws matching t90~t92 from 50%~0% enemy health, but I don't want to cover too many things at once cause I don't know if Jagex could handle it.
