As late as todays runescape survey twitch stream, the jmods were struggling to come up with the perfect solution to the future of the comp cape's overall idea, and admitted there might be no solution to make everybody happy.

In the new 2019 video it is again mentioned that jmods now 'dare' make a rework for something where we have many opinions. The rework should arrive March/April according to the video.

So the biggest problem seems to be the reaper title!

My solution:

1. Remove reaper title as a comp req.
2. Nerf the strength bonus of comp cape slightly, keep all its functionallity.
--- Edit: comp cape should have 31 str bonus = hybrid stats of the fight kiln capes.
3. Add a Reaper cape to Deaths shop, that only can be bought and weilded when the player has the reaper title, the cape should be hybrid with fight kiln cape strength bonus +/-
4. Make the reaper cape attachable to the comp cape, which then gets better strength bonus than the normal comp cape. --- Edit: At least the current 43 str bonus.
5. If the player looses the reaper title the attachment is taken off the comp cape.
6. Make the comp cape harder to get with new content, just something else than the reaper title, should still be some prestige in having the comp cape.
7. Have seen /Jackscape suggesting Reaper/FB/IFB capes, if jmods choose this way, all capes could be an add-on to the comp cape, with each cape increasing strenght bonus slightly.

With the reaper title problem out of the way, I think the jmods can fix the rest of the picture that makes the future of the comp cape :D

2 main opinions on this thread:
1) leave reaper as comp req
2) move group bosses to be trim req only.

Plz give any kind of feedback :)

No support -

The reaper title is easy to get - and I hate bossing.

Your idea to nerf str makes no sense. That bonus was in place prior to the title being added to game. Maybe if the title added bonus to the cape.. but then that’s not really a solution to people not wanting to boss- that’s just something extra being given while on the journey to Comp Cape. If you don’t do reaper you don’t get comp.

The spirit of the Completionist cape is for players that have completed all significant ingame content. PVM is a large chunk of ingame content, and the most significant aspect of the current state of the game.

That being said, I like your idea. I simply want the names of the capes to more accurately reflect the achievements and skill it takes to get them. Simply make an alternative cape with no combat bonuses called the
Completetrash
cape for people who can't PVM. Once you get the reaper title, you'll get a
I don't suck at PVM anymore token
that you can attach it to your
Completetrash
cape to make it a real
Completionist
Cape. It's basically your idea, but with accurate labelling.

I support the reaper cape and attaching it to comp cape for the full stats. But nerf stats of regular comp to 30 all styles 150 life bonus. You can still add the spirit cape to comp. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

Considering that beating the Fight Kiln at least once is a requirement to obtain the Completionist Cape (even without the Reaper requirement), I fail to see why the cape should not have Kiln cape stats even in the absence of the Reaper requirement.

I have comp and MQC myself. And I think it should be quite hard to have comp. I don't even know how long it's gonna take me to get a Solak kill to get comp back, but that's just the way it's supposed to be.

But I'm a runescape veteran and not everyone thinks like me. So this is the solution I think will be fair for most people. They can balance the stats a bit more on the different capes, even the names as you suggest. Overall the way we think about comp cape, has to be more streamlined, I think that is what the jmods are aiming for.

Because it is hybrid maybe? In the end, the most important thing if this suggestion goes through, is that the reaper cape attachment to comp cape should be a significant increase in strength bonus.
