I think Telo's silver and bronze prestiege drops should be adjusted, so that they give more rewards, or money for each drop. It is agreed upon, for the most part, that Telos is an investment until you get to 100%+ enrage drops. I think this should be changed, as it would be more harmonious for the game's progression. There seems to be a gap between the "work put in" and the "reward given" ratio in the game. I am talking about, not making enough money for the amount of work put in. It seems like you have to put in a lot of work to get rewards, disporportionately so. The game would be better if it was slightly more rewarding. I am having trouble bossing and getting my invention level up, because divine charges and siphons are so expensive, death bracelet doesn't help a lot either. Telos is one of my favorite bosses, and if his drop rates were raised, I would be over there more, when I want to, not just when I have enough money to make an investment to progress in learning it, while I get good enough for 100%+ enrage. This is actually a bit nerve racking, and takes away from the fun of the game. Sometimes it takes too long to reach certain goals in the game.

I think GWD mechanics should be changed around little, too. It is hard to get a good haul there, unless you are maxed. What I mean is, you have the optimum gear available, i.e. lvl 80 armour dps armour, lvl 90+ weapons. I find it hard to get a good run at all, at GWD2. I think this is partially, because I am a ranger, and GWD2 seems to be made for other combat styles. It would be nice, if, it was easier to get around 30 kc an hour, at any GWD2 boss. That or if the reputation per seal was boosted a little, or the drops made the low kc per hour worth it. I think that the bounty hunter is great, I think I am just going to wait the time to build up reputation that way. It is a bit of let down, though, since I was thinking of bossing for rep. The mechanics, though, for range are dismal, and the drops are not worth it. Thank you for your time.

I suggest you get maxed then if that's your problem. Other people seem to earn their money just fine in GWD2. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Yes, people seem to make money there. What I am talking about though, for example, is at Twin Furies, there is a rigid mechanic in order to get fast kills there. That is what I am talking about, making it easier to get around 30+ kc, there. For Twins, you have to follow the strict mechanics and be maxed, in order to get the kill in one cycle of their special attacks, allowing for 30+ kc an hour. It is harder, I think, than it should be. Once you learn the cycle, it probably is not so hard, but you still need to have the best dps gear in order to accomplish it, and as a ranger I don't think it is possible. That's why I think it should be made easier, to accomodate more player tiers, and still have like 20-25 kc per hour.

I think you just gave the answer to your own problem: don't use Ranged and learn the cycle.

Hi, back again... I think this is a big issue, namely, that there is not enough money coming from the boss drops in the game. I like the bossing gameplay in rs3, I do it more than skilling, but there doesn't seem like I have enough resources to do it as consistently as I would like to. Like I said before, gwd2 is only a good source of money when you know the mechanic and are maxed, that's the only way you are going to get 30+ kills an hour there. Telos is a fun boss, but getting to 100% enrage is hard, because the drops are minimal 99% enrage and lower. The Mazcab raids are my main source of income, and I enjoy them, but still waiting 2 days for each loot cycle, and having to pay 70m for new dps gear, on top of sara brews, divine charges, overloads, can take months to get the gear you need for some of the high level bosses, let alone the bossing supplies to get there.

There, right there, you just essentially describe what the boss is meant to be.

Well, I think its obvious that many will disagree with your opinion.

You keep giving the solution to your "problem": get maxed! I believe GWD2 is aimed for the very high leveled players, so it perfectly normal that your profit is lower when you're at a lower level than intended.
Stop complaining and get good.
There's lots of other stuff you can do to train your levels to max AND get some cash at the same time.
