Practice mode is a great tool, my problem with it is that supply costs can rack up fast - it could be a factor stopping people from getting into high-end PVM and learning bosses using practice mode.

My recommendation is: Have inventories saved on entry - Ammo, pots, food, runes, portents and whatever else. Then after your death/boss kill everything resets and you can try again or leave. You can freeze augmented item xp while in the practice mode instance to stop it from being abused. Just make it fully sandbox so people can practice without fear of the cost.

I'd love feedback on this. Especially if you think it's a bad idea/not feasible. If this is already a thread I apologise.

It would make sense since you can't get any normal xp, loot or make it count for achievements and assignments. The Winner of September 2019's MUPAQ™ Award is

Was just about to make a post about this.

The biggest improvement I would suggest is that you get to have AI teammates to help you through the fight.
Before each fight, you get to choose your role - etc; Tank, DPS.

That would be cool - would be awesome if you could practice phases in isolation too but that might be a bit much to ask for right now.

I know it would make a lot of people more willing to tutor clan mates/friends on bosses.

To be honest, practice mode should just allow you to use stock items provided by the game, similar to OSRS's tournament worlds.

In other words, when creating a practice session, you don't use your equipment, you make a setup from choices presented to you.
