This is in regards to the Ds2 quest rewards from a runecrafting standpoint: With wrath runes dropping in price rather quickly, it's becoming less of a viable method (in terms of gp) already in compared to 2x death runes (at 99 rc). As far as feedback goes, I was wondering if you could make some tweaks into the use of magic for them, b/c as of now, pkers will just buy a couple and use a few surge spells and that's it. With ancients, they have lockdown with ice barrage and it's a really good training method as well (barraging monkeys, etc).

So I'm proposing more spells that incorporate wrath runes into them, so there is more of an economy for them and people would actually want to buy them for training, pvm etc, and stabilize the price of them. (Perhaps a lvl 99 barrage (doesn't necessarily need to freeze, maybe an AoE teleblock? just an idea - that uses wrath runes)

I did really enjoy the quest though, I did Ds2 on this account (combat 85) with the hopes of wrath runes actually being good money (better than 2x death runes, since the quest reqs and 200 questpoints are so high!) but with lack of demand and usage for them their prices are steadily decreasing, is why I hope to see more spells use these new runes introduced :)

I'm really confused as to why the team can't seem to balance stuff correctly, they should know by now that people like w00x are gonna make a mockery of the boss and make guides how to mow it down. Loot is extremely unbalanced as I can only see maybe 4 bad drops on that list, meaning consistently you're pulling 40-80k a roll, and now you've added two rolls, the gp per hour is going to be insane. At least zulrah you could often pull the snake skin, flax and pure essence drops for rows at a time.

The escalating money p/hr new bosses are creating is going to wreck the economy, I now as a maxed main have a choice between killing 2 bosses if I want to make competitive money rates. I used to love killing different things like DKs and GodWars for money in 2015 but why bother now when I can kill Zulrah and Vorkath for double or triple the money over time.

As far as wrath runes go, no one except pures are going to use them, I tested them thoroughly with max mage gear on PvM environments and it lost every single time to the trident, at least make the new cool adamant and rune dragons weak to surge spells or something.

Please stop making every piece of new content crazy money per hour and maybe focus on them offering cool new BiS gear that's untradeable and in doing so providing an incentive to take on these new challenges without killing off other content.

Sad to see from a veteran player viewpoint.

This community is so toxic it is unreal. You guys are NEVER happy. You either have the hardcore people complaining that its gonna ruin the economy, the boss is too easy, the drops are too good, or you have the casuals complaining about the opposite.

You kids need to learn something real quick, majority rules. The simple fact is: if the MAJORITY of the users think a boss/content is useless, drops are bad, etc, its going to get changed whether you like it or not. Sure they could have polled it, it would have passed with flying colors.

Big freaking deal if this boss gives good gp per hour, not everyone goes to the duel arena to make their money, you don't hear people complaining about that, becoming rich overnight.
The 100k on death will balance out the new drop table. Quit complaining, jesus.
