whats the bows new cap on high magic monsters?

edit: So frustrating to get a new item, pay a heavy price tag for it to be nerfed and drop massively in value.

EDIT: RIP Twisted Bow prices.


It is still balanced so that it is the best thing to use by some way. On Zilyana for example, it was just quite needlessly far above what other weapons could offer.
Good to see you guys are taking care in how much DPS you give something. Will it still be the best DPS against all the monsters it previously was after this change, or do you know?

It'll no longer be effective against Graardor, as it really shouldn't have been given he doesn't have a magic attack.

Dagannoth supreme is now more resistive to range attacks as a whole too.

Wasn't it supposed to save runes on offensive casts in the first place?

Yes, and it now does.

Any reason Dev Blog portions are now censored?

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean there. We're posting news on the site rather than in the main body of the forum thread because we've finally got a permanent news archive, which is a lot better than having to hunt threads in here.

Hmm I would rather see the Twisted Bow's independent effectiveness adjusted, than to buff NPC Range Defence suddenly, it could be seen as punishing to Range Based Account Builds to nerf all range effectiveness simply for one item that is for most, completely inaccessible.

Unless of course these changes were added since the balance of Range in PVM was a general topic to analyze.

Having the Twisted Bow so powerful on Graardor was good, because overtime it would have driven Bandos armour prices down to be very cheap, and in effect, would have eventually made the community warm up to the idea of a higher tier melee set, such as the Elder Armour - having a much higher value.

I thought it was brilliant long term planning as this game inevitably progresses forward with upward scaling and demand.

Fair enough. Thanks for the details, Kieren.

When should we expect a fix to avoid Osbuddy 3.0 users to be able to click further than usual?
OSBuddy fixed that. You can't anymore.
