Jagex was actually planning on doing this, but then they decided this:

It should not be done because choice of Gods should be determined by ideological reasons, not which choice gives the most dps or xp.


Was the correct way of choosing a faction. Which we can all be thankful for.

Make the Prayer Cape the god symbol of your choice? And an altar to that god in your POH?


POH needs an update anyway since you can only choose between 3 God icons

I see your point in bonuses, but seriously!? 0.5 damage boost is nothing. Say you do 1000 damage, with 0.5 damage boost you would do 1005. That's barely anything.


Did you expect something else then? o.o? 500% bxp? Triple drops? o.o

The bonuses are way too small to make them at all significant, and if they were significant then certain factions would be completely avoided by other players. Sure, make it so you can't jump from faction to faction, but don't make a micro-bonus that will not help at all or a macro-bonus that will make it unfair to those who pick the wrong faction.

You could reduce them to a hundredth of a percent and people would still base the choice on gameplay reasons. Can't stop the minmaxing.

A better idea is to have a flat .5% damage bonus or something for having an emissary selected, just to increase participation.
Patrolling Lore FC almost makes you wish for a Great Revision.

I expected something good. You saw my example and should know that if there was going to be any benefits whatsoever, it should at least be a noticeable one. God banners exist anyways.

They purposefully made it so following a specific god gave no unique benefits, because they wanted people to choose the faction they liked the most rather than the one that gave the best boosts.

No support. Even if it's this minor it'd still affect faction choice, which should only be determined by the ideology you prefer. If faction choice should have any benefits it'd have to be universal.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

Hmm... I was about to not contribute because the following gods don't have emissaries, but then again your list contains Guthix and Brassica Prime. Soo

Amascut - 0.7% increased critical damage chance to all slayer creatures, even critters you don't have the level to attack yet (because 0 times 0.007 is an amusing way to get people killed :D).

Tuska - 0.5% increased chance of critical damage to all creatures (inspired by the Tuska Warpriest set)

Marimbo - 0.5% increased positive effects and 0.2% reduced negative effects from beers, ales, wines, cocktails, and potions
