Considering that beating the Fight Kiln at least once is a requirement to obtain the Completionist Cape (even without the Reaper requirement), I fail to see why the cape should not have Kiln cape stats even in the absence of the Reaper requirement.


Because it is hybrid maybe? In the end, the most important thing if this suggestion goes through, is that the reaper cape attachment to comp cape should be a significant increase in strength bonus.


But, again, why? Even if you remove the Reaper requirement, you've stilled demonstrated that you can earn the Kiln capes and thus their stats (the spirit cape needs to be added to the comp cape, because no requirement necessitates you obtain the spirit cape).

If a distinction must be made, have it be cosmetic just like how trim comp has higher reqs than normal comp but is only a cosmetic difference.

I agree that you have earned the stats that the kiln capes have.

But have you earned it on a hybrid cape, meaning all the capes combined?
And have you earned it on the comp cape with all the other functions and stats aswell?

I would say maybe, because it happens fx with the spirit cape.

My point is, the best statted cape, should require reaper title, so if the normal comp cape should have 31 str bonus as hybrid, then the reaper cape attachment should get comp cape back up to its current 43 str bonus or higher.

And well forgot Max cape has 26 str bonus, and comp should have more, so yeah 31 str bonus might be just fine :)

I respectfuly disagree. We've already seen with comp vs trim comp that extra reqs don't necessitate extra stats. A cosmetic change works just as well.

And yes, I'd say you earned those stats even before doing Reaper. Disregarding the Reaper req, you've still earned:

The Max Cape and thus the 3 active skill cape perks and Max Guild teleports.
Ava's Alerter and thus it's abilities.
The Ardougne Cloak 4 and thus it's abilities.
The Fire Cape and at least one TokHaar Cape (the Reaper req doesn't have you earn more than one either) and thus their stats and bonus effect on ice strykewyrms.
The teleport from the Bonesack(e) or Ram Skull Helm(e).
Jerrod's Cape and all it's effects.

And if you've bought the Soul Cape to use on the Comp Cape, you've earned it's stats too.

Killing every boss at least once adds nothing to this list of unlocks, and so should have no bearing on obtaining them. At best, it should reward a cosmetic change if the requirement is to be removed from the requirements for baseline comp cape (and we already have something in place to potentially do that, just move Reaper to trim).

Fair points.

I do think reaper title should have some more reward than just cosmetic, even more because that title is the reason comp cape might become easier to get = more common.

If it's just for something cosmetic I don't care at all, then the cosmetic difference being trim when you get that cape would be enough.

So yeah our difference in opinion is mainly if comp without reaper title should earn you the best str bonus on cape in game, even with lower str bonus comp cape would still be the most useful cape in game you wear all the time, just with a potential upgrade from getting reaper title.

I don't see why so many people have a problem with the reaper title...
You just have to kill one of each boss. It's not like it's asking you to get the Insane Final Boss title.

Keep it as-is.

People don't seem to understand that comp cape was not intended for skillers it was intended for people capable of doing high end content, you want the cape learn how to boss.

Well I agree.

So we either do some kind of compromise, or tell the jmods there is no problem and that they should tell people to git gud :)
The reason the jmods are taking this up now on live streams, is that they say they wanna create even harder bosses in time, targeted at the top 5 % pvm'ers in game, and then comp would only really be for the top 5 % pvm'ers in game :)

I don't think a mass percent of the community should be able to obtain comp easily, a big part of this game for me is creeping up in more difficult activities and if there's no challenge to comp then what's the point

All they're doing is adding a new team boss, I don't see the big issue, just take the time to learn it
Like everyone else
