I feel like you all are being a bit harsh on stormy... Yes, I don't feel that the overload is as "overpowered" as he makes it out to be, considering it's unavailable in PVP. Also, I don't see how it could be considered overpowered in clan wars. If you are willing to spend the money to make one for an event yielding no wealth in return, I believe you deserve the stat boost from it. That being said, he makes a very good point about including other skills in combat. Those of you who are looking for a point, there it is. The fact that Jagex created the overload shows that they want the respective skill to be included in combat. In my opinion, a similar update could be done for many other skills that could prove to be just as useful (although the idea of the balistia seems a bit comical). Another note: I actually enjoyed it being written in a humorous sort of laid back style, a nice change from the "depressing, doomsday articles week" we had a few weeks back. For the second article: No. Just, no. Bad idea. Really, really, bad idea. 90% of runescape's population hasn't achieved 99 in more than 3 or 4 skills.
