Skills Pointless? in General Discussion Posted July 6, 2013 On this forums many people have claimed that skillcapes broke the game. What you bring forward here is simply why they claim so. People want xp, not the items themself that are a result of the xp. At least for many of the skills this is true. Xp therefore gets more valuable. This change really started with the introduction of skill capes, even though I believe that it had already started a bit. Without skill capes we would still be in the same situation today though, I believe. The competition for xp would certainly have grown stronger over time anyway.Yeah, he hit this on the head. Although when more and more people get high level you do see it, when the capes first came out there was a tremendous spike in those skill grinding. COming back now and just taking a look around it's sort of insane how different skilling, and the goals of skilling are today than they were back in 2010.
