The price of Laceration boots and blast diffusion boots should be a wake up call that slayer uniques should not be put into boss drops.

The price of Laceration boots and blast diffusion boots should be a wake up call that slayer uniques should not be put into boss drops.

WasV3

The biggest problem is the drop rate. They are shockingly common in comparison with the codexes meaning that most people who went for the collection log, got about 20 total pairs of boots. That floods the game with boots as people hunt for the title now. Jagex somewhat fixed this with Kerepac as the normal mode drops are pretty freaking rare in hard mode and anyone camping for the tile is going to only do HM.


raindrops73

As someone who likes raksha I wish the boots were less common from raksha. The price would go up a bit, then it would be a good drop, not a junk one lol.


Weiguken

This. Solak did a good job of including slayer drops (cinders and ritual shard) but at a super rare rate to not detract from slayer mobs.


Imolldgreg

It also helps its a group boss that no one does. I think that's why tbh.


Ralphyx95

They never used to be so rare. Pretty sure they were 1/128 or maybe 1/256 before and the price absolutely tanked before the drop rate change. Not too late for the boots pls jagex


Bubble_tea_spy

Why didn’t they nerf the rate from raksha? Or is that dumb


[deleted]

[удалено]


kotopro

No, the boots only droped because of raksha... Yes people kills the boss for grico and thats the reason he is being massively farmed, adding the boots or any existent unique drop to a boss like that would most likely kill the value of it unless it had a very rare chance (like solak having cinderbane gloves rarer than the bow )


Efeyester

Yeah the drop rates feel balanced for a d2d item, not one that you buy once and forget it


brutalvandal

Ironman don't have access to slayer? They'd rather kill Raksha to get T80 boots?


ItsLuckyDucky

100% I would have rather done Raksha instead of killing Vileblooms and Dinosaurs for boots. Damage is done now, those slayer tasks for me are niche "I need X supply right away" category.


IronAkh

I disagree. I was outfitted to kill dinos and Vileblooms way, way before I was anywhere close to taking on Raksha. Also, at least with Vileblooms, the drops are really good on a late-mid game ironman, where you're trying to build up supply caches before taking on endgame PvM.


ItsLuckyDucky

"I would have" "I need X" These are just my own opinions for myself, if you find value in them that's cool, I will still go kill them if I need something specific that they drop the most of.


TeeeZy

they hav to do raksha to get grico/gchain anyway. why spend extra time killing dinos/plants when ur likely to get the boots from raksha anyway


brutalvandal

Great logic. Lock T80 gears behind a boss like Raksha.


kotopro

i mean, lets think a bit ​ EVEN if u have an main account where u do 3-4 min raksha kills and u could also do on shity gear( i mean , once u get the machnics u can do in T75-80), the boots drop there would still be stupid, because the main point of OP (and i belive that is also the point of every1 that desagreed with the boots being droped by raksha) is that it literally killed 4 slayer creatures. I Blocked vile blooms on all my accounts, there is absolute no reason to do them, they are slow as fuck with shity drops, the only cool thing was doing it for the rare chance of getting the boots... ​ its like if solak had a 30x better chance to drop the gloves.. it would kill 70% of the income from creatures of the groove.. at least you can aoe golems for xp, but would be a big nerf. And making content worst by some little stupid things is something i belive jagex dont want.. ​ also jagex made those new slayer creatures (nightmare, creatures of the groove, runedragons \[not anymore\], vile blooms, dinos) with unique drops, so they could revive that amazing feeling we had about slayer creatures in the past( whip, gmaul , dbow, etc), killing that is just stupid lol


brutalvandal

Yes! 100 times yes! Thank you! I remember when getting a whip or dark bow drop was exciting.


kotopro

people in the reddit desagree with me. ​ I hope jagex doesnt listen to some cry babies in this reddit ,if they do, runescape will be a shit show , jesus they want every thing easy and coming from bossing ONLY.. ​ jagex should make a bossing simulator for thos epeople, thats all they want lol


brutalvandal

Bosses dropping ores, logs, herbs ruined the gathering skills. Why bother doing herb runs when Telos drops a ton?


kotopro

Yeah well, they helped alot with the stone spirits. ​ About herbs, tbh u still can get alot doing herb runs, i stoped doing the runs lately because i get burned out from daily stuff, but normaly i do them for like 6-7 months 3-4-5 times a day then i take like 2-3 months break and come back after xD, its ALOT of herbs and GP, trust me. Actually not that bad still. Afaik, for Herbs only , we use alot of potions for pvm, so at least we have a huge sink but yeah, Telos is waay too overpowered in his drops if ur good at it.... by far the best. But its fair to point out that not many ppl can do high enrage streaks tho. Now logs i also totally agree , all magic and yew are from PVM ... with almost no sink at all... but it made fleching profitable at least , making magic short bows etc and elder logs are fair price since its not dropped from PVM


G_N_3

Wow this is totally how i feel wtf... well said


TeeeZy

i never said the items were locked behind the boss? im saying that specifically for ironmen there is no reason for them to do the slayer because they hav to do raksha anyway to get grico/gchain. by the time u get the abilities it is very likely to have a complete boots set. HOWEVER if they want to they still hav the option to do the slayer tasks instead of doing raksha.


brutalvandal

Which is easier to gear for, Raksha or those slayer monstes? If you need high tier gear to start Raksha why the fuck would you want low tier drops from him? Why couldn't it be 3 different shadow spikes for 3 different styles?


kotopro

Lmao that would be 100 times better. Well said


HarshmallowsRS

This might be an unpopular opinion, but the game shouldn’t be balanced with Ironman accounts as a thought. The whole point of Ironman mode is for it to be restrictive so why should they be considered when forming drop tables?


brutalvandal

I agree to some degree. Due to current state of game nothing should gated behind group play.


kotopro

its not unpopular ,its that the reddit community are a bunch fo cry babies who wants everything given to them instead of working for it, its the new generation of cry babies who cant deal with a bit of grind, they want games like wow where u dont have to do anything besisdes a few stupid dungeons and get all the gear for free ​ and it gets even worst when they pick a challange mode like ironman and complaina bout how hard it is , HAHAH sorry but thats just fucking stupid bro ​ i remember i made a post about rune dragons when they released EDs, some ppl agree but the cry babies are the ones that gets "into the light" unfortunally because they cry and downvote u etc.... i knew the prices of the boots would go to almost zero... well it did happen. Now adding these boots to raksha was even worst... the could at least made it even harder drop rates than slayer ? and added the range boots to slayer aswell , so simple


P_G_12

I agree, and yesterday I noticed something really odd about the new boss. I got, in a week and \~100 kc solo normal mode, about the same amount of adrenaline crystals I got from going 120 slayer, and a bit beyond that. Is that bad? I don't think so. It just shows us how they are scrapping slayer drops over time, and/or how rare they are to get from slayer. I wouldn't mind if they came to a mid term where it is easier to drop from a boss, but not so easy that it would devaluate the slayer drops.


UnwillingRedditer

I wouldn't call inert adrenaline crystals a slayer drop since they were put on a couple of boss drop tables (RotSm KK, Legios, QBD) when they added them, and have been on every boss table since they were released (Raksha, the Matriarchs and Kerapac all drop them). And given how ridiculously expensive adrenaline renewal potions are, it's good to have finally broken their price a bit. I think the Anachronia boots were just a misjudged one-off.


Deathmask97

See but that just leads to old fallbacks, which is why Abby Demons are always taken up on every world save for the 100 Dg resource dungeon and the Wilderness, and why Corrupt Scorpions are never available at all.


bullsands

Inert crystals aren’t a slayer drop, thats a supply drop


Ruxs

As a counterbalance they should make vileblooms drop grico. >!/s!<


Fatal-consternation

Non-top-tier Ironmemes gotta get it somehow. >!/s!<


ychoed

The boot upgrades from the rune dragons were far too expensive for what the boots are. At the time, players were begging Jagex to do something to make the boots worth using. In my opinion the boots still aren't worth using anywhere, even with the upgrade pieces being cheaper. They should have added passives to the boots, then the increase in supply from the elite dungeons would have helped curb the increase in demand from players beginning to actually use them and the pieces would have still stayed relatively expensive. What they did to laceration and blast diffusion boots was simply dumb. I feel like they could have still had the boots drop from Raksha, just make them insanely rare, like how the cinderbanes are at Solak. (Since Raksha dies way faster, it'd have to be more rare than cinders at Solak, probably like 1/1500 - 1/2500) Then the boots wouldn't be required for the drop log either. They could have then added the Fleeting boots as a super rare drop from both dinos and vile blooms, then make a new Anachronia slayer monster that has a decent rate for the boots later (or if they were smart, before Raksha was released)


kotopro

i agree with this post almost 100%. The only thing u could say i desagree is that (not sure if u did mean to say that) even the runedragon boots upgrades not being worth it, rich people still bought it. So , basecally, they would still make rune dragons more valuable for awhile at least. When they added the boots to EDs it was just as stupid (if not more stupid) than adding the boots to raksha (wich was pretty stupid).


UnwillingRedditer

I mean, it was factual they were never worth using. The price was largely fashionscape rather than function. They needed to crash (but that probably should have come from making the parts much more common from Rune Dragons) OR to not degrade to dust (for the rarity and being task-only, they probably could have changed the boots to repair with GP and it would have been fine). With the benefit of hindsight, the melee boots would have crashed with the M/S rework anyway, folloed by the mage boots with Anachronia and the ranged boots with Raksha. I would like to see 'some' passive given to make the boots useable... maybe they could provide antifire protection, to appeal to a niche of people with 90 defence but without super antifires (since using dragonfire shields is so awful).


kotopro

well since u downvoted me i will downvote too. ​ anyway if u actually read what i said , i did say i agree with almost 100% , but not the way jagex did (adding to EDs,) ​ Yes, making non degradable or making the boots better is another issue that i also agree... but thats not the point of the topic


101perry

Talk about petty, "oh no, someone gave me a minus point on the internet. I'll give them a minus point too." You don't even know if it was him. The other guy is right in that the upgraded boots were incredibly expensive for what they did. If anything, the only reason they'd be used is either for absolute max potential combat, or more as a show off item to others that you could afford them.


kotopro

i dont know if some of u guys/girls are having issues actually READING THE POST, but i said i do agree the boots werent good... the point of this topic is that IT DOESNT MATTER because they actually made a slayer creature less valuable by making that unique drop also drop from a new boss/ dungeon, the boots didnt drop because they were bad , it droped because it inflated the market with them, Its the same with raksha, and proof of that its that in raksha case, they are actually very good boots. ​ if the boots needed buff or not its another discussion.


101perry

In all fairness, no one understands what you said because your first message looks like you threw alphabet spaghetti at the computer screen.


kotopro

In the post you answered you could see my answer about the boots and if you read carefully my first post its pretty easy to understand what i said aswell. Jesus the first phrase i typed : I agree with almost 100% of the original post. I think you have to just pay more attention to what you are reading man


101perry

It's actually just your comments. I have no issue perfectly understanding everyone else, it's just the mix of letters you decided to press to try and make words is incredibly hard to figure out what you're trying to say.


AssassinAragorn

The problem is making them super rare on the Slayer monsters, and then uncommon on the bosses. It should be the other way around


Epiqai

I agree 100%. I hate how now Slayer isn't nearly as profitable as it used to be. I wanted to do Arhats to get chimes for Arc upgrades but now because Mizuyari is only like 6m it's not even worth it. Same with Rune Dragons as you've mentioned - they take faaaaar too long to kill for the mediocre profit they give now that Elite Dungeons have crashed the T90 boot add-ons. I think it's kinda funny how the boots that Glacors drop are like 10x the price of Lacerations and Blast Diffusions despite being straight up worse, simply because Glacor tasks aren't that long and people don't kill Glacors that much because they aren't afk at all. I like the rare drop aspect to slayer tasks - Nightmares are super fun because of the chance at the gauntlets. I love Glacors because of the chance at the boots. I like some really good weapon/armour items being behind slayer mobs that I don't have to tryhard to get. I miss that with alot of mobs.


Rarycaris

Rune dragon boot upgrades were also a problem in that the items were just not worth using anywhere you were making less than about 2b/hr. Their value being ruined by elite dungeons was very much intentional. Personally, I'm glad the game is moving away from new items mostly being very marginal upgrades with absolutely insane repair costs. But I would like to see a new use for the rune dragon boot items. The problem with Raksha was that Anachronia boots were actually reasonable to use, because they weren't too expensive to maintain and they were actually powerful enough to justify their price point. But given the price of fleeting boots, it's hard not to also argue that boot drops in general are too common from Raksha.


MarkAntonyRs

I think you're missing the point, jmods don't want those items to be expensive... People basically complained non stop that rune dragon boots were so obscenely expensive to use, that jagex added them to elite dungeons. How's that their fault? Now blasts/lacs were also clearly more expensive than intended, so they added them to raksha and now they're accessible to everyone.


billie-eilish-tampon

Could have been solved by increasing the droprates from the slayer mobs, not making something else drop them.


kotopro

Yes , the intetion of the mods is to make a top tier drop be so common that It Will worth less than Magic logs. Lmao , ofc they didnt want that... They added those boots to slayer creatures for the reason of reviving the skill as it used to be long time ago with unique, special and valuable drops...


MarkAntonyRs

Yeah they proved that by adding them to the boss didn't they. Deff wanted them to be slayer exclusive. 😂


kotopro

Then It was a mistake


bullsands

Rune drag boots were useless since they were just a stat boost, which didn’t justify its price. Anachronia boot passives were actually worth the price


RareGrindHero

I like when a new drop table adds to current items, like the Rex Matriarchs. It's definitely a feature we need from future updates.


ThaToastman

Hot Take: Raksha should have dropped blowpipe parts 1/500 and dropped the boots 1/2k. Shadow spike should have been 1/300 and should give some added bonus to the boots other than +2 eg (the bonus accuracy on fleets, perhaps a tighter damage bracket on bladed dive that raises average damage, and making detonate 5x5)


Genghiiiis

100% agree


Springa_linga

Got my Blasts on slayer way before Raksha, were worth 80m GP, now they're what - sub 5m?


RickyTheBillyGoat

I'd argue that adding boots to Raksha drop table is fantastic. I sold a pair of blast diffusion boots on the ge two days before Rakshas release at around 75m. Making utility gear more affordable by having it drop from multiple sources is definitely healthy for the game as a whole


ThaToastman

Raksha dropping the boots isnt an issue. Raksha dropping the boots in a way that you bring 20+ of them into the game before completing the log with no invention sink is the issue. Before raksha, the boots were a rare slayer drop (just like every other historical slayer drop incl dbow, abby whip,, cinders wyvern, camel staff, ripper claws...etc). Solak drops cinders 1/2k, which equates to a fun super rare drop. Raksha should have been the same


RickyTheBillyGoat

Raksha is already a super profitable boss and having an excess in supplies is nevera bad thing. I'm really starting to feel redditors just want free handouts. No support.


ThaToastman

Wait wait…what? Im advocating for lower droprates, which, would in turn barely affect the price of boots but theyd be rarer so the gp/hr wouldnt really change My whole point is anachronia already had an item that doesnt need to be on a slayer droptable and so it couldve been on barney’s


kotopro

raksha is only super oprofitable because when u hit the jackpot like grico it will make the gp/h goes to heaven... when grico get back to a more normal price (like 600m) it will decrease alot. But adding the boots to it actually killed vile bloom slayer task, wich was only worth for a boots chance... ​ if the boots were worth high gp but with a VERY rare chance on raksha it wouldnt change absolutely nothing in the boss current gp/h... ur logic is just wrong.


RickyTheBillyGoat

I'll hold my breath till then lmao 600m. Even without grico you make a ton of gp off the commons and spikes and gchains what a joke


kotopro

u can make more of telos, aod , solak ... if u go to rswiki it says raksha is what , 40m/h? thats because of grico chance mostly... arraxor with no 1.6 b drop is 35m...


RickyTheBillyGoat

Wow cool thanks for the info, don't see how this is relevant at all but thanks really appreciate it


gordon_bennet_65e

Who hurt you lol


alazystoner420

Nice bro, you're already popular in your first day on Reddit! Negative karma, I'm jealous. Your opinions are great!


RickyTheBillyGoat

Thanks man couldn't care less, I can actually think for myself!


Zeverious

Tbh I agree but I’d also like to point out the hex hunter bow… 1/1mil drop… maybe add it to a new boss lol


Love2PetDogs

It’s 1/1500 from elites, no one really kills normal stalker creatures for a HHB.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Love2PetDogs

1/10 …


ThaToastman

Hot take: hexbow droprate is actually perfect. It takes like 40 hours of soulgazers (with charms) to get one, and its literally a BIS range weapon (inb4 mY eNchAnTeD BoLts). Contrary to popular belief it far outperforms xbows on damage over time, especially for budget setups, slayer, and times when you care about cash and don't camp hydrix bolts. Tmaul and Inq take longer to get btw


Zeverious

“Budget setups” lmfao


[deleted]

Zeverious

Add it to a new boss put it at a 1/1500 like elites, hell 1/2-3k just make it something enjoyable

Zeverious

Don’t get me wrong it’s not a perfect boss but it’s not bad


ThaToastman

Lmfao ok budget the wrong word to use. I got my hex as a drop when they were like 300m which isn’t too insane for a ‘sold my bank for the best weapon possible’ situation More so “setups where you dont want 10m/hour gear costs” 😂


Zeverious

Meh hhb is a STEEP investment to just run ranged slayer, I still don’t think worth


DaRealWhiteChocolate

Also BIS at ranged araxxor, raksha, legiones, and kerapac. Where are you getting this "ranged slayer" pigeonhole from?


Zeverious

BIS at all those? So not T92’s or ECB or nothing? Just HHB?


DaRealWhiteChocolate

I just think it's hilarious that you capitalize STEEP for the hexhunter bow and then casually toss out 3b weapons as alternatives. besides, you can use ECB in souls if you really wanted to. but yes a t97 bow will do more damage or atleast as much than a t92 at magic class bosses, without relying on ruby bolt procs.


Zeverious

Yeah I said steep just for slayer. Don’t take it out of context, 700m for a hardcore bossing item? That’s cheap.


DaRealWhiteChocolate

Fair, sorry if i came off rude have a good day.


xGracie

The issue here is that you are saying "BIS". HHB is not BIS. Is it a good alternative to max crossbow setups? Sure. It's not BIS. Yes, it's far cheaper to use and upkeep than bolt costs etc, but it does get outperformed by crossbows.


DaRealWhiteChocolate

To what extent though? I've seen it framed way worse than it is imo by most elite pmvers, just think it's underrated due to its rarity.


ThaToastman

Without Hydrix bolts, Hexbow is bis damage at any magic classed boss (i.e raksha). With ruby sgb procs being the only way that t92s being the only way to pass it in damage—unless you have under 100% hitchance on the boss in which hexbow quickly shines again


nightlord125

but you have 100 percent crit chance on almost all bosses at hlevel pvm. And you have ruby/hydrix/onyx can't be taken out of the analogy because they exist, you are not gonna spend 6 bill on weapons just to not use good bolts too. Hex is in a weird slot where its too expensive for mid level pvmers and but has no use case for high level pvm. tldr its to expensive to justify as a mid level pvmer/casual slayer and its not better then ecb/blights which makes it have no one actually wanting to use it


nightlord125

also ecb special attack/sgb help a lot when it comes to total dpm compared to hex bow not to mention needle strike aswell. its weird comparing 6 bill to 300m but to someone that money is essentially not a problem (High level pvmers) there is no reason to strawman


nightlord125

ThaToastman

So the reason ecb/sgb spec don’t need to be brough up as a comparison as with eof, you have access to both specs whether you hexcamp or blight/ecb camp. So the existence of specs does nothing to the comparison. Also note I only said take out hydrix bolts. The reason for that is that most pvmers arent using hydrix bolts as they cost far too much. And by the time you get to using hydrix bolts, you definitely have an ecb eof and blights in your 8b+ setup. Onyx bolts are a flat 2.5% dps increase. (Slightly less due to not proccing on bleeds) Rubies are a questionable increase, but camping them is around a 2% (slightly less bc bleeds) T90-> T92 (weapon+ammo) is a flat 2% dps increase, 1% overall when geared (assuming 100% hitchance) In my setup (pernix, eof, max cape, eof, jas book, fleets); Ascs are 2029 Damage Ecb is 2057 damage Hex is 1885 damage base, which equates to 2121 damage. Adding in the bonus from onyx bolts ecb hits 2108. So in that gear, while comparable, ecb hits 13 ability damage less, and hexbow’s damage scales with gear so if I put on Esirenic, it would be an even bigger difference. All of this also doesnt include how hex is more accurate against most bosses, nor does it include potion boosts (which would also favor hex). The main benefit of say, ruby bolts is the potential variance. In the same way that relentless proccing on an ultimate ability is a massive boost, ruby SGB hits for example are comparable. But youll only get a ruby sgb hit 8.8% of the time, and the odds you hit more than 3 arrows on most bosses is low So while you can get a far better pb with an ecb due to this variance (imagine all your sgbs for a kill hit 5 ruby arrows), your average killitime at say, raksha will be 15s lower using hex vs ecb (assuming you have ecb eof for hex for fair comparison).


bullsands

Enchanted bolts are what makes bex straight up garbage lmfao. Hex is only bis for afk slayer


ThaToastman

“Straight up garbage” You sound like someone who doesnt own one 😂. If you cut out hydrix bolts from the equation it does far better than camping T90s (similar cost) or even T92s (way more expensive). None of the non-hydrix bolts add more than a 4% dps increase (assuming camping) vs hexbows 7 tier damage (and bis accuracy)increase. A better point would be the lack of tick manipulation with 2h/dw swapping is a weakness. In other words, for those of us who arent bis hardcore gamers (read: streamer tier) we arent trying to/able to use that benefit


bullsands

Yea bro u rlly need to get better at trolling lmfao. Hex is straight garbage compared to even asc+ruby baks. And dw man I got my hex from Ult Slayer. You sound like some1 who revise combat and has no idea what they’re doing kekw


ThaToastman

I got 2 hexes from slayer…did the whole raksha log with it 🤷🏽‍♂️ To each his own I guess but the thing is definitely good


bullsands

Ecb is way better than hex at raksha bro. Bolt procs are insane


Rarycaris

Hexhunter bow is fairly reasonable to get if you're trying for it -- it'll take you about 7.5k soulgazers on average assuming you're using seeker charms, which I think is broadly fine for what is nominally a BIS item (buff bows pls). Problem is the bow just wasn't that valuable until the inquisitor staff renewed people's interest in hex weapons in general, plus the weapon itself could use a buff.


gthaatar

While youre right OP, the flip side of the coin is that its kind of nice from a buyers perspective that even the Fleeting boots are as cheap as they are. The upgrade to T90 is still stupid expensive, so having the base boots be half as expensive still would be a bit much.


niravhere

i used to consider doing only slayer for a while for money and those high drops like the boots were something to look forward too even if they were rare.


UnwillingRedditer

The Rune Dragon drops needed to crash because they were (and still are) pointlessly expensive to use, to the point of not being worth using. That said, this shouldn't have come at the compelte cost of rune dragons' gp/h. I would like something to be done about those and I think one of the ninjas recently posted on Reddit asking about crappy Slayer tasks, so this might happen. Ditto on the celestial handwraps needing to crash (but with those, Celestial dragons were already piss-poor Gp/h so no harm done). Arhats aren't a Slayer task and I don't think they were ever particularly farmed. I would like to see the Acolytes of Seiryu added as a Slayer task... Luminous Snagglers are actually still a pretty decent task for money with some ludicrous common drops and you can kill them reasonably quickly if you are any good with melee (and probably with a HHB now GRico exists). I do dislike how cheap Raksha has made the boots and the balancing that you get so many sets of boots per codex set is silly (just like the drop rate on the spike is silly - you should get 3 spikes per codex set, not 1, since you 'need' 3 spikes total). That said, I agree with the general point that Slayer uniques should be kept as such and not used for filler drops on bosses. Even though Solak is barely killed and his drop rate for Cinderbanes and the shard are both ridiculously low that it makes no overall difference, I still don't like that they are on his drop table.


orynse

I just wish the t90 versions of the boots were repaired with the t80's, to keep the prices at something that wasn't bordering on worthless.


norjiteiro

Now this is interesting


ghfhfhhhfg9

they were way too common. cinderbanes on solak are 1/1k for instance. they didnt really impact the price. the boots from raksha were way too common.


caddph

Yea I agree; with Kerapac, it's a nice synergy as you can get pages via the troves which the slayer mobs can drop (and of course, have their own set of uniques). The only reason to see the boots on Raksha's droptable in my opinion is ironman considerations.


IronAkh

I wouldn't be surprised if it boils down to pure laziness. They needed some mid-tier filler drops for Raksha, and couldn't be bothered to spend the effort developing more new items. Sort of related, but maybe not: I also hate how Kerapac's wrist wraps are just recolored cinderbane gloves. Not only is it just pure, unadulterated laziness, but it makes no sense from either a lore or game mechanics standpoint. Wrist wraps are more closely related to Nightmare gauntlets and gloves of passage than they are Cinderbanes.


kotopro

i 100% agree with this post.


demonic_budz

Not every drop needs to be 100m+ and a 1/5000 drop. I skipped vile bloom task anyway i can make gp faster by killing other bosses selling loot and buying them same with lac only reason i do arch area slay task is because i still need a drop to finish last base camp upgrade...


CookieblobRs

I think this logic could be unfair to slayer players. Introducing farmable bosses which drop slayer unique drops hurts slayer profit/hr. Stating that PVMer's have a way around this issue dismisses the slash on slayer profit/hr. PVM is best money per hour and it is already centralized as so. OP is implying it doesn't need to be centralized any further by means of slashing other skills.


MonzellRS

wow look another "it doesn't affect my gameplay or how I play so I don't care" how original /s


demonic_budz

Op said state your opinion which i did. Where in my comment did i state that it didn't effect my game play? You are right about one thing though. I dont care, because even if i did jagex can do what ever the fuck they want to anyway. At least try to make an effort on a retort. The whole "how original" type comments arent well you know original anymore.


champokeman

The boots exist to "fix" combat without giving outright buffs to the skills themselves. Its fine that there's alot of them in game tbh


Zuunik

It happens almost every time a new boss comes into game it get piled with rescources that are end up losing all its value this is just another great exemple..


Imolldgreg

Just give them their own invention perks. Problem solved.


XcrowX99

Really good point. I agree with what you said and wish slayer drops werent added to other sources.


JangoMango7

Totally support this, rune dragons have had their drops destroyed.

Perhaps it was always meant to be a boss unique, they just out in slayer and the slayer content was ready first.


Ziggehh

Yeah, wish they just released a new slay mob in the raksha area that dropped the boots, honestly devalued all the boots when they were added to the raksha log, such a bad idea..

I read stuff that people put on here as a new player to RS3 and I'm just like 🤯🤯🤯🤯

In b4 they add t92 boots that need 10 pairs of lacs/blasts/fleeting to upgrade

t95 staff is dropped by a mid level boss(normal mode obviously).... that can be camped... its not limited like Elite dungeons by time to finish floor, not limited like raxxi by paths and rage... not like telos where you have to get high enrage to get better chance requiring high tier gear...(and way more skill than i have lol) you think jagex is trying to keep things expensive? no...


XcrystaliteX

Staff is only dropped by HM I thought?


A_Vitalis_RS

You're correct, not sure what this guy is even on about.


RageQuitSon

noted. I asked my friends who got duo staff piece and they said its easier than most fights. "its a dps dummy fight" so solo hardmode, i've heard is a bitch? but if u can trio hm then my point stands.


Rarycaris

You can trio HM, yes. It's not completely trivial, but it's not what you'd expect from a t95 boss either. That said, I'm reserving judgement until we see what price the staff settles at. I imagine they're trying to avoid the weapon being too insanely expensive by using trio to ensure supply remains healthy, much as they have with the eldritch crossbow.

Speak for yourself mate, vileblooms are amazing for ironman. Just not great for mainscapers...
