Okay, so you are saying not to wear the best items available to you? I should go train combat without a cape?



Sorry, but I'd like to give you a little more credit than that.

Why thank you, how kind.



I really don't think I said that either.



I think I said something along the lines of



It is like celebrities (Players with skill capes) who pretend to be bothered by the media (Lower level players/emote beggers). If they were truly bothered they would stop doing crazy stuff (wearing a skill cape in a crowded bank when they are just sitting there and talking) and they would be left alone.




PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!



Combat training is almost just as easy to fix!!!!! You can buy the legendary OBSIDIAN CAPE!!!!!!!!! JUST AS GOOD DEFENSE BONUSES!!!!!!



Only thing you end up sacrificing if a bit of prayer.

OMG I KNOW!!!! Good thing this can be solved too!!!!

YOU STILL SACRIFICE ONE PRAYER BUT WHO SAID BEING FAMOUS WOULD BE EASY!!!!!



and if you argue that using the cloak gives you less defense against physical attacks I will quickly point out that if you care about the prayer you will be praying so you won't even be taking damage.
If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

I agree with Zierro. If you spend a lot of time on the game, what's the problem with having some marker or milestone of things you've done ? I also play the Xbox 360 online and off, during my spare time, and they got achievement sections too. You can look up what anyone's accomplished on any game they played, and RIGHT on your tag it shows your total score of points.



If someone unlocks something in online play, and uses it, what makes you think they're using it for your viewing pleasure? God forbid they do it for themselves.



Everyone else's arguement is so childish and assuming.

So, you're telling me to change the way I play if I'm annoyed by other players. You're complaining about me complaining. Fine, then while we're making suggestions to prevent complaints: Quit playing Runescape. You apparently see "attention hogs" all the time, so why don't you avoid the problem and just quit RS? Since not wearing capes is the only way to prevent emote beggars - then quitting RS is the only way to prevent seeing "attention hogs". Your own words can be used against you.



In fact, using your own reasoning, you could actually say that wearing anything that isn't the most efficient means that you are a "showoff". Yes folks, that means that even Cav-wearers are also "showoffs".

I'd rather take the one prayer and suffer the consequence of getting bombarded by emote beggars. That's my choice - not your's.



And let's get off the subject of stat bonuses for a second. Am I not allowed to wear a cape for it's looks? Hunter Cape is by far the coolest looking cape I own. I wear it everywhere I go - not just in crowded places. In fact, I even take it to my POH! But what?? No one's there except me?? OMG! I'm wearing it without showing it off!! But I thought Monkey and Klutz said that was impossible?? No, Monkey and Klutz were wrong. Some people do wear it to showoff, but that doesn't mean all of them do.



Just gonna say this again so maybe you people catch it this time: self-satisfaction.

imo, all skill capes are an excellent accomplishment, no matter how "easy" they are compared to other ones.




Exactly what I would have said :]



People who show disrespect to those of the 3 "easier" 99's merely show that they do not know what it takes to get that accomplishment.



All 99's are extremely hard to get...I settled for a quest cape :]

The fact that you said you wouldn't post here anymore - when you just have - proves what a liar you are. Not putting words in your mouth either. Reread what you yourself has typed.

You tell me I'm putting words in your mouth when this is what you said:



You like the attention, or you would bank it.




You're telling me that I like attention. Look who actually is putting words into other people's mouths. Just look for a second, then maybe you will stop competing in the "Special Olympics" with me. (More hypocrisy - you're telling me I'm competing when you are too - even though you said you would stop.)

I never said that.



Yes, you put words in my mouth. I believe I have the right to defend what I say, especially when you say I said something I didn't.

But yes. Yes you did. Did you not see the quote?



You like the attention, or you would bank it.




The fact that I go to my POH with it on proves that I don't wear it just for attention.

Did I ever say there was a problem with you wearing a cape around??? Please quote me on it.



If someone unlocks something in online play, and uses it, what makes you think they're using it for your viewing pleasure? God forbid they do it for themselves.



I never said I had a problem with people wearing skill capes if it entertained them.



Everyone else's arguement is so childish and assuming.




So, you're telling me to change the way I play if I'm annoyed by other players.



No, I am saying if you want to stop being bothered stop wearing it. I proposed solutions that would hardly effect your way of playing as well.



You're complaining about me complaining.



Yes I suppose I am.



Fine, then while we're making suggestions to prevent complaints: Quit playing Runescape.



I have. I just have absolutely no life so spend my time trolling 3 other forums similar to this one.



You apparently see "attention hogs" all the time, so why don't you avoid the problem and just quit RS?



^^^



Since not wearing capes is the only way to prevent emote beggars - then quitting RS is the only way to prevent seeing "attention hogs". Your own words can be used against you.



Dude, I have no problem with people wanting attention. I have problems with people who pretend not to like the attention when they really do. Hence the celebrity comment.



In fact, using your own reasoning, you could actually say that wearing anything that isn't the most efficient means that you are a "showoff". Yes folks, that means that even Cav-wearers are also "showoffs".



Ok right again. I never said people who showed off there skills were bad.



I'd rather take the one prayer and suffer the consequence of getting bombarded by emote beggars. That's my choice - not your's.



Ok if you want to be bombarded by them stop whining about them



And let's get off the subject of stat bonuses for a second. Am I not allowed to wear a cape for it's looks? Hunter Cape is by far the coolest looking cape I own. I wear it everywhere I go - not just in crowded places.



I addressed this up there. I don't care if you wear something for the looks. Incase you have never noticed before the most expensive items in the game are only there for the looks.



In fact, I even take it to my POH! But what?? No one's there except me?? OMG! I'm wearing it without showing it off!! But I thought Monkey and Klutz said that was impossible?? No, Monkey and Klutz were wrong. Some people do wear it to showoff, but that doesn't mean all of them do.



Dude, I never said you did. I agreed with a poster who pointed out that so many people really enjoy the attention of being asked even if they pretend they don't.



Just gonna say this again so maybe you people catch it this time: self-satisfaction.





If they were truly bothered they would stop doing crazy stuff (wearing a skill cape in a crowded bank when they are just sitting there and talking) and they would be left alone.




I never said I have a problem with you flattering yourself. I only said that if it really pisses you off that much there are multiple solutions to the problem.




Please stop acting like I think you are some idiot. I don't. I never once attacked you. I only agreed with a statement stating that there were people out there who pretend to dislike attention but thrive on it.



Just because I quote someone in one post, does not mean I totally support them and agree with everything they say.

Klutz, you replied to Monkey's post and said:



That is all so true.




To me, that implies that you are agreeing with him. If you weren't agreeing with everything then why would you add the word, "all"? By the way, the way you were talking in that post with the pictures wasn't exactly friendly. But anyways, we should just agree to disagree. If you really don't have a problem with me wearing a skill cape, then it would be pointless to argue. My posts were mainly directed at Monkey anyways.

It's okay. It happens.

He was being sarcastic? :shock:

Translates to: You wear your cape for attention.



Am I not allowed to wear a cape for it's looks? Hunter Cape is by far the coolest looking cape I own. I wear it everywhere I go - not just in crowded places. In fact, I even take it to my POH! But what?? No one's there except me?? OMG! I'm wearing it without showing it off!! But I thought Monkey and Klutz said that was impossible??




Translates to: I wear it even when no one can see me, but yet you said I wear it for attention.

All righty....



Since you used the "all" argument. Tell me where in the post I agreed with he said "ALL" players act that way.... Ok then....



I never disagreed with you. You obviously just don't understand that there are players who complain about noobs bothering them when they where their skills capes where if they player honestly wanted them to stop he could simply use different equipment that achieves the exact same effect.

So you really want to continue this then? Well, I hope you know what you're getting into. ;)



Secondly, players act like it annoys the hell out of them to be asked, then the next thing you know, you see them doing the emote endlessly like the true attention [bleep] they really are.




1. He's making the assumption that it doesn't actually annoy people. Hence the words: "act like"



I can tell you for a fact that it does annoy us - in the same way players asking random questions annoys a level 138. No, nothing serious, which is why we're not going to change how we play the game - but annoying to the point where we will complain.



2. He's making the assumption that since we do the emote, it means we crave attention. Hence the words: "like the true attention [bleep] they really are"



I don't do the emote for attention. I do it to rid myself of attention - to get them to say, "Oh nice," so they can move on and leave me alone instead of repeatedly asking me. It's still annoying though. And when I've had enough of doing it for that day - I just move away from them and don't do the emote. But like I said, that still doesn't get rid of the fact that it's annoying.



I never disagreed with you. You obviously just don't understand that there are players who complain about noobs bothering them when they where their skills capes where if they player honestly wanted them to stop he could simply use different equipment that achieves the exact same effect.




Personally, I like how Hunter Cape looks over those other ones you suggested. Also, it's a good reminder to myself of what I accomplished. If I am about to give up - I'll just look at my Hunter Cape and say, "Now wait! If I got 99 Hunter, then I can accomplish this goal too." Like I said, I even wear it in my POH when no one is around.

I think you missed the good stuff. Now they're just trying to weasel out of admitting what they said. Too bad we got quotes on here.

Ok, I am annoyed now. If I say "Players macro" it is a fact. Does it mean all players do it?? No, not at all. He never said all players were that way.



Second thing is you quote me when i am talking about OTHER players and you respond with a passage containing 5+ 'I's' and other words that infer you. I am not talking about you obviously.



If it annoys you why do you let the players walk all over you and do the emote for them?? That is why the keep asking. Because you do it. People aren't stupid. They comprehend things and they will figure out to stop asking if people stop doing it when they are asked.



I take full responsibility for what I said. I don't try to weasel out of anything. You have yet to quote me on anything I have said without totally twisting it into something it isn't. In this post I say



"PLAYERS" I never said YOU. You respond with a great passage about yourself. Nobody asked for your life story.
