Why would you poll the range cape with no additional bonuses from assembler? IMO that is a stupid call. The ranging cape should have the same range attack and ranged strength bonus as ava's assembler, in addition to the +9 all defense. It makes me very angry that I have this nice but useless skill cape. Why would anyone choose to loose range accuracy and range str. The pole is passing because its a step in the right direction. But lets be real, who would equip this for anything other than bank standing?

Because then the cape would become BIS in every situation.... instead of letting Assembler be for DPS and the Cape being for Defense/Prayer. Did you forget the cape also has a +4 prayer bonus?


I'm sure we could poll all kinds of buffs and they would all pass provided they didn't help PKers but that doesn't mean it is good for the game and that question is fine as is.

Can we have a cosmetic effect added to the "Preserve" Prayer? This effect could mirror the "Berserker" Curse Prayer as both are very similar in their function.

ie. Purple smoke/fog that brews up the body from your feet.



We don't have Curses in this game, nor do we want to copy pre eoc animations.

I'm very surprised the chaps/vambraces aren't passing.

I think the way it is worded sounds like you're making the game easier for pures to the average newer player.

You should have mentioned that currently the black counterparts (same stats minus +1 prayer bonus) do not have a defence requirement. Then, there'd be a more informed voting population. With all of the new players, I feel this result is a little skewed due to lack of information/misconceptions.

Yep agreed. I don't think people realize that they have the same stats as the black chaps/vambs other than the prayer bonus. If everyone who voted on them, knew, it would be thumbed up A LOT more :/ I've never had a pure in OSRS but think it is a very good poll!

Hell yes to the Serp helm to be +5 Str <3

Okay I see your point, how about this. When adding vork head to range cape it becomes same stats as the assembler? I'm just tired of never wearing skill capes because they aren't bis for anything at all. Fire cape has better defense, ardy cloak 4 has better prayer. I'm not after making an item so op no one would ever wear anything else. I just think the most iconic capes in the game are just fashionscape at this point

As a d'hide user myself, I'd recommend bringing it all to tier 65 ranged, but with no defence requirement - freeing it open to all pures. Low risk rushing definitely seems to be an issue based on what's been discussed on streams, but if it's not d'hide it'll just be something else.

Armadyl should remain superior, for now.
