Hey everyone,

Since the Comp Cape redesign update we've been monitoring comments in relation to the stats on the Max/Completionist Capes as well as the Fight Kiln capes.

This week we added a 100 life point bonus on the Max/Comp Capes, during this time we've been having discussions regarding the stats on the capes themselves.

As a result, in a future update (date not confirmed) we'll be making the following changes to the capes.

- The combat bonuses of the Max/Comp capes will be boosted from 26 to 31.
- The combat bonus of each of the Kiln capes will be boosted from 31 to 33.

This ensures that no one loses out on the stats they had before the rework, but also keeps gear choices interesting. We want to set the precedent that the comp cape won't be best in slot in the future, and we'd rather do that through a small buff than a small nerf.

Thanks, but can you give some kind of an estimate at least even if it's not the exact date? Because the way it's worded now, this update could come in 2020 or later, because the wording leaves everything open, year included.

That's certainly fair - this way you've defined the max/comp cape role as the best hybrid cape (for now), ensuring that players do not have a worse standing than pre-rework, while also rewarding the use of a specialized cape (which probably would become even more defined when capes past t70 content are introduced). Totally agreeing with Blackwing that it would be nice to know roughly when this is supposed to happen.

Giving a different thought for another lost thing by that update - could you consider including a permanent fire cape effect in that 2k slayer points upgrade for players who have unlocked the enhanced fire cape at the same time? Or if you feel like players need to put in more work introduce another slayer upgrade which both needs the former one + the enhanced fire cape.

And maybe something to consider for the reaper boost: Split the benefits of to be awarded by defeating any boss once (ultra weak bosses wouldn't award anything, while the strongest will carry the majority of that boost) - this way the new boss dialemma would be fixed as well - a new boss could allow players to extend their boost slightly, not just being another obstacle that might players cause to lose everything they've earned in that aspect.

In General - more news about existing pieces of content that will become requirements for the (trimmed) comp cape in the near future?
