More and more items are being added to the purple slot on TH diluting the prize pool. The chance of winning a Barrows item becomes smaller and smaller and with 28 items the hopes of ever making a set become unlikely. If Barrows items were to be replaced with an universal Barrows token the players can get whichever item they desire. Tokens already exist on the purple slot so why not?

How about lets just replace every clutter and remove them completely and make a "lucky equipment token" where you get to choose a piece of the existing luckys. Problem solved.

No support. Then everyone walks around with keepsaked lucky chaotic claws or other popular cool looking luckies or combos of luckies. Unless you make the lucky (barrows) token a rarer chance to get than each individual lucky, then maybe I could support but otherwise no. Getting an ugly lucky sometimes that you won't ever use is part of TH.
Feel free to take a look at my suggestions:
200m xp prestige,
Trouble Brewing,
Custom FPS&graphics preset,
spirit gems destr->drop

You might as well join the group asking TH to be removed entirely; Jagex wants TH to be predatory gambling, and what you're asking is for it to be less predatory by making it less RNG in nature. As such, I'll humor you with my proposal:

1. Remove TH entirely. If you're against a part of predatory gambling, might as well remove it outright, yes? > )

2. Make a new copy of the lucky items, re-name them to something that describes their visual appearance, rather than how they were obtained, and make them into cosmetic overrides.

3. Put the new copies for sale in Solomon's store; price to be decided by Jagex.

4. Discontinue the old, already existing copies. Nobody should complain about this, as they can get the regular equipment with stats through normal gameplay (either obtaining it from the content or trading with other players), and the cosmetic variants from Solomon's store.

And there you go, problem solved & a win-win for everybody! > )

Given that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that I can't presume to know the fate of TH it seems a small compromise in favor of the player is due at this time. People might even be more excited by the prospect of spending money on something they want.

Yea so what? I mean that's already being done with the rare item token and vic's store. People choose what rare they want.

This. More people would spend money on keys if they had more hope that the prize they're after is actually going to be in their hands once they do hit a purple gem.

Removing TH and selling things like this on Solomon's store instead, would make even more people willing to spend money on these things. As long as these remain behind predatory gambling, the main audience buying them are whales, and whales are already buying them. > )
