Even the players that I have always viewed as talented PvMers continue to struggle with Solak. Many have simply bought a kill now.

While there will always be a few who can take on anything thrown at them, the numbers who can pull it off are quite small now.

Make a special cape for these creme of the crop players to maintain. Put all the prestige stats onto it you want. That should keep them happy. But for Pete's sake, adjust the completionist and trimmed completionist to have more reasonable requirements. Rename them if that helps some in the community not have a coronary over the adjusted requirement list technically not actually "completing" the content. Never mind it has never been a true game completion achievement.

This issue really does need to be addressed. Surely it's not just up to Ramen to decide.

the "Famous" title is a comp req, that is completing Morvran's special slayer assignment, and that includes killing 10 bosses, with a debuff added to you after each kill.

So like I said, removing reaper doesn't remove bossing.
Removing (list of my 10 least favourite skills) doesn't remove skilling from comp. So please remove them! I really don't want to do them :( but I deserve comp anyway


That's what buying keys (or warbands) seem to be used for by some already.

Except that's literally what Comp and MQC entail between the two of them with the exception of the PvP aspect (i.e., maxing out all your skills; completing all quests in full; finishing all diary sets; having one (1) measly kill registered for all bosses; miscellaneous stuff). That covers grinding, lore, and PvM. I don't consider Trimmed to be the "real" completion achievement because its requirements are largely inane. Spending 500+ hours doing literally nothing as a paying member just so you can unlock a mediocre armor that you'll likely never take out of storage after getting it isn't a display of skill. It's a display of having way, waaay too much time on your hands.

But, I digress. My point is this: you need one kill per boss. If you can't handle that, then you don't deserve Comp. Stick with your Max Cape. Sorry, not sorry.

(This is coming from someone without Comp, btw.)


I'm almost finished with the cw req. Three short fights and I'll have trimmed. I've got mqc already. The combination of comp and mqc are not "literally" finishing the game. You're an idiot. Sorry. Not sorry.

If your idea of "literally" "finishing" the game is 200m XP in every stat, consider a brain transplant, maybe. For all intents and purposes, Comp/MQC cover all significant content with the exception of PvP. I already pointed out that Trimmed's reqs are largely inane (e.g. Profound, 4k Chompy kills, 1,250 in a dead minigame, building the Statue of Rhiannon 32x etc.), so also get reading comprehension.


I'm in no way encouraging Jagex to make a comprehensive list of requirements for the capes currently known as completionist and trimmed completionist. Rather, I am pointing out that both capes have always been inaccurately named. If completionist completed the game, there would be no need for a trimmed version. 200 mil xp in all skills proves nothing in this day and age, anyway. There are too many methods to obtain easy or instantaneous experience.

An alternative to the current constructs of the capes to consider is to divide reaper into two sets. The first set would be included in comp requirements and the other on trimmed. Solak is primarily a contest between the developers and the small, elite PvM community and is better suited for the second grouping along with any future comparable bosses of similar difficulty.

That scrubs who can't even kill all the bosses don't deserve the BIS cape, obv.
This^


Sure. If being a scrub is sitting at rank 8719 in Runescape qualifies as being a scrub, that's me. And it's clear who is deserving of the arrogant snob designation. You know nothing of what another player is capable of in the game. Too much elitist bs on this thread. I'm out.
