For max cape:

Could you polled out an option where a fire cape can be used against the max cape in order for the max cape to have fire cape stats? You would still have to earn the fire cape before it can be done and the max cape will not be any stronger than existing capes.

And I just hate whenever people say this will encourage the "no xp waste" mentality as if it's an awful thing. I have that mentality and I only ENJOY this game nowadays when I achieved a lot or as much as I can within a certain time frame. I simply HATE to dawdle around socializing with random strangers and waste my time. These people who preach that "no xp waste" is sick and should be abolished and says everyone should just "enjoy" the game when their advice goes against the enjoyment of many others.

There are alot of people playing OSRS and most of them have gone through Runescape back in the old days. We are not getting any younger and if we spend time playing this game, we'd rather achieve milestones than wasting time in some place chit chatting the time away or any other xp wasting activity. Feels a lot like religion when these people dictate how we should play the game because their idea of what "FUN" is are the absolute one true path and those not following that are sick in some way (resemble anything?).

What I see now are just people denying the ability of others to have their own fun trying to get the item. Not trying to save the community at the slightest.

Give me a good reason why after thousands of hours getting max stats, that we shouldnt be able to get a cosmetic cape that shows people have all 99s



Original message details are unavailable.


What I will absolutely vote no to is max capes. These capes simply add more of this very toxic ''no xp waste'' mentality to the game, which I personally see as a big threat to the game. The capes are also not needed, people who have achieved level 99 in each stat already have access to every piece of content in the game basically, that's enough to me. A cape would only be used to show off and add more of the toxic mentality mentioned above. Should they pass, please don't ever make them the best cape in the game, just keep the stats the normal skillcapes have.


heritage put it quite nicely. Also you already have your 99 capes to show off your achievements, no need for further crappy updates to further intoxicate our community with xp waste crap.


That "no xp waste mentality" is really a weak argument tbh. Come on really? There are people that already fall under this mentality, and people that do not. People make it seem like its such a big deal. bit A max cape would not change that or make it worse I am sure. Especially if its not BiS cape.(which it wont be). If max cape is released you will not notice anything different. Play the way you want, and let other play the way they want.

Max Cape - I think the base cape should be as it was described in the dev blog, same stats as a skillcape (t). However, a second version of the cape should be added - such as a Max Cape (i) - which is earned by using a fire cape on the max cape, giving the max cape the fire cape stats. That way players who are maxed still have a reason to go back to the fight caves (in case they lose their max cape), but it also allows them to show off during any activity they like.


This one.
