Like anything you pay extra for, this is another one, one that is a choice, one you don't have to have, one you may not have items you want to be locked to your account.

Once it's locked to your account that is it, there is no turning back, there is no combat with this item unless you keepsake it.

Remember back at the beginning when we talked about "regret"? Sure, this would be a "choice", but as with many choices in life, people sometimes regret their choices later, because they couldn't foresee the consequences at the time. E.g. when noxious staff was still best-in-slot, someone might've thought "I might as well permalock this to my account, since I'm always going to use it", until it no longer was BiS, at which point they would've wanted it back... except they no longer couldn't, leaving them with a useless item they no longer need.

And do you realize just what it'd mean in practice if the permalocked items could no longer be used in combat? Because combat can happen even outside PvP, it'd quite heavily restrict the use of the item. Most people would probably permalock their combat equipment, which then literally couldn't be used in combat, making them useless.

Honestly, as Tenebri suggested:

maybe sleep then rethink this whole idea

Why would you lock an item if you want to use it in combat O_o

and your first point locking an item (noxious staff) because you are always going to use it - you wouldn't lock it in the first place because once you have locked it you can't use it for combat O_o

The core idea with your suggestion is that the hacker wouldn't get your high value items: for many people, that is their combat equipment, such as their noxious weapons, or their T92s if they're that rich. You didn't even realize the conflicting issues with combat at first, so a random person coming to this thread, who only reads the first post(s), would think that they could permalock their combat gear without consequence, since you haven't even edited your opening post to reflect the things we've discussed.

Seriously though: if it's true that you're half-asleep at the moment, then go sleep, come back later and rethink this completely. Because replying to bits and pieces isn't going anywhere.

Agreed.

Might be best for everyone if you just got some sleep.

I have to agree with everyone else in this thread that this idea is very unfeasible, and that a night of sleep would help matters. whoever is humming the jaws theme is gonna get slapped

As Blackwing has pointed out, people would almost certainly change their minds later, or perma-lock the wrong item by accident, and want Jagex to undo it. As soon as there's an option to undo the perma-lock, then it becomes no more "secure" or "permanent" than the other options we already have.

Far better to use the existing security options ...

Use 2FA on your email
Use Authenticator for the RS account
Use a bank PIN
Use secure passwords and never let others know them
Don't "save" your passwords in your browser
Keep your antimalware apps updated
Don't share your local computer account
Lock or log out of your local computer account when you walk away from the device

I would love to protect high-end gear and weapons but it's not feasible as each time you combat its a gamble if the items are lost or not.

You will have to make sure that what you lock is what you truly wanted to be locked. You choose to lock your phat or Santa or ..... that is it, it's locked for the life of the account.

The only way to get around this is to put a lock on an item for a set amount of time say 3 - 24 months and then you would need to repeat - which is another option that I would be very happy with.
