Well we can agree to disagree, I will always vote against anymore 120s if given the option or make myself vocal if not given the option. Time and energy should be put into new areas not beating a dead horse for 30 more skill levels. If people are bored and quitting with the levels at 99 max what do you think having to do them to 120 will do. Ive played 15 years or so and Ive never had 1 person say im quitting because skills only go to level 99.....

Valid points. I did however see people quit when 120 slayer was released.

i think that, if its done right (using invention), some levels 120 like herbblore, summoning and prayer could consume a lot of items IN GAME wich would make the game healthier (as long as the new summ, pray and pots wont be TOO OP). So in my point of view , its obvious that making some skills level 120 (not all, like combats skills for example, they should stay 99 for ever), will consume items and make the market healthier and there fore the game aswell.

It will give them something more to do. Some people like skilling but need a reason to keep skilling. If skills raise to level 120, it means more content will come out past 99 to fill the gaps between 99 and 120. If done right, it can keep them busy for longer. And keeping players busy for longer is healthier for the game.

This game has always been about grinding and doing repetitive stuff over and over again until you complete a goal. OSRS is attractive for that reason and look at how much more popular it is compared to the main game. It's the game for grinders. When RS3 began losing that (by making skills too fast), it started losing players and was seen as the lesser game (commonly referred to as easyscape).

People won't specifically say they're quitting because levels go to level 99. They'll likely say they're bored and have nothing else to do. Why are they bored? Because they reached the maximum level in a skill (99 for most) too quickly and don't see a reason to continue going forward.

Time and energy should be put into what the players want. If people decide they want skills to move to 120, then that should happen. If they don't, then yeah put time and energy into something people do want. We can't gauge that from a forum that only draws a couple hundred people though. This can only be determined with an unbiased poll that doesn't show any results until it's done.

We have item consumption skill and it’s called invention. Reduction of items in the economy doesn’t make it healthy, because those items become overpriced. Demand for items in the economy makes the economy healthy. Not the same things.

You also touch upon a second issue, that you want 120 skills but the benefit from getting 9x more experience to be miniscule. Then what is the point in raising those skills to 120 in the first place. If at 120 you are 10% better off than you were at 99, why not release an items into the game that makes you 10% better off and not raise the cap of skills to 120? Easier and faster too.

120 skills shouldn’t be about prolonging the exact same grind at faster exp rates or be justified by bettering the economy. Because at the end of the day, faster exp rates and constant market manipulation by jagex is what is making the economy unhealthy in the first place.

To everyone saying it'll give people something to do or something about extending others gameplay guess what new skills will also do both of these things. We dont need an old 99 pushed to 120 to give people something to do we need new things to keep the game interesting to make people want to play instead of being bored by same ole crap.

Why not both? Plus, its probably easier to just extend or rework a skill than introduce a new skill that needs to fit the theme of the game, lore of the game, interesting new mechanics, be useful otherwise its DoA. We're overdue for a new skill, so I wouldn't mind at all see a new skill before any more skill expansions/rework, but I'd still expect skill caps to slowly be raised.

Best post by far. I would rather they release new skills than beat a dead bourse with raising caps to 120.
