So we've all been there, right?
We are about to get our skilling on, and we are gearing up in the relevant outfit. And then we see them. Sitting there in the bank tab, almost mocking us. The silverhawk boots.
We all love that agility xp, particularly when it's whilst doing something else.
But oh. The skill outfit we want to wear... it's a set bonus only.
CONFLICTED.

Perhaps... just perhaps... this is a chance to make them a little more niftier (I'm well aware they're pretty op already but hear me out.)
Perhaps, for a treasure hunter promotion... There could be tokens or crystals or something. Something little and whatnot. That could be used upon the silverhawks, to make them compatible with other skilling outfits therein not losing the bonus, but still being able to gain agility xp / consume the feathers. Multiskilling is definitely something we all love, and silverhawk boots are definitely another thing we all love (even if we don't admit it).

Very similar to how they're compatible for use with the Nimble outfit, (that is, you can wear silverhawk boots instead of nimble boots).

Perhaps there could be little skilling upgrade crystals to use on them... so you could perhaps wear your silverhawks and be gaining that delicious, delicious agility xp, whilst in shark suit. Or diviners gear. Or your botanist. Or whatever else you're wearing to get the most out of your hard earned grind gains.

There's plenty of you who will obviously say
"But Yfe! This is stupid. You're stupid. Silverhawk boots op already".
Okay. Cool. Opinion noted.

This suggestion is for those who love their silverhawks (whether you admit it or not). But think perhaps they could be improved upon... maybe added to... made more versatile, made more compatible.

Anyway. Thanks for reading. Just an idea, of course :)

But Yfe! This is stupid. You're stupid. Silverhawk boots op already.

Also no support; if I could get 200m agi running laps, you can too. Do that, or lose the shark outfit bonus, you can't and shouldn't always get everything.

I don't see why they would have to work with the regular skilling outfits, because not wearing the outfit boots only gives -2% xp. But with special outfits like shark/golem/ethereal etc. it would be useful because you need that full set for the special effect.

Support.

its an idea all ideas are welcome even if your un happy with them. this game is open to more players then just you and not everyone is butt hurt about upgrading them like you are.

Makes sense - support


See.. When I saw the title, my first thought was "what is this person going to suggest to make even more reason for silverhawk feathers to rise out of proportion" then I read her post.

It makes sense. Its a legitimate way to implement it and is something most would be happy with. Full support.

As for blackhawks comment. Invalid, just because you have no life and can run a million laps for 200m xp, does not mean we can, a lot of us do not have that kinda free time, nor do most people even enjoy running the laps to get 99 at the most. You need to stop acting so privileged and entitled. It is not good for making opinions beneficial to the game as a whole. Do not assume everybody plays like you

Silvrrhawks were made for this exact reason. They work with the nimble outfit, and I'm fine with a form of attachment to merge with the boots so they can be used with other sets. I see no OPness to that.
Your opinions here can affect us all. Please post for the better

Honestly I think they should stay as purely an agility item.

But if they did become more versatile, I'd hope it'd be fairly costly. With the other skills running alongside how the agility bonus works.

For example if you wanted to mine, you'd need both regular Silver hawk feathers, & mining feathers.
SH feathers would run down as normal & mining feathers would run down as you perform any mining activity. So you'd have like 23k gp per silver hawk feather & lets say 40k gp per mining feather. Soon adds up, so it could be a fairly balanced update.

I'm on the fence slightly leaning towards no, but I honestly wouldn't mind if it happened.
