Also shows that for Level-120 this skill requires 104,273,167 experience. That's quite a massive amount in comparison to the 13M experience required for level 99. I do wonder if Jagex is really 'upping the ante' with this and giving a little bit more incentive to others to train higher.

Personally, I can't see myself aiming for that unless the experience rates are quite a bit higher at higher levels - that's quite some time required otherwise.

I've got the long term goal of getting 99 in every F2P skill. If I had to get 120 (with 104M XP), I'd quit before I got to level 100. The experience rates are too slow, and I actually have a life.


Same here. Life is to me more important than 104 something million exp.

I feel like having to get over 104m xp to get a level 120 is a bit insane consdering 99's are only 13m

Id definately quit rs if the level cap for all skills is 120. I only play to max out my character to all 99s, and i do have a life. not worth playing to me anymore if they decide i need to get like 3b-4b exp to get something all of a sudden.

fairly sure ill be quitting rs soon as its confirmed

Seems weird that Jagex is encouraging skilling which is usually linked to no-lifing. What with the bonus exp weekend, and now this (if it is true), it seems Jagex seems to finally be siding with the grinders. Before MMG they discouraged it.

I ask you, the community, since I myself have no answer. I don't think this is a bug though, since both the maximum levels are 120, and not a random number.
This seems quite seriously done to me and I think that it is possible that Jagex have revealed something by mistake here.
Discuss.


I hear you. I saw this not 5 minutes after the update. I know of somethings that were bugs though. The melee gloves said 120 Strength bonus but I went back not too long ago and they said 12 Strength bonus. Many other items had the same problem. This might be a bug but I highly doubt it. I think a lot of people are going to find relief in knowing that after 10 years the level cap of 99 has been broken (which may in fact be a clue to a bigger update).

I don't play anymore but I think increasing the max limit to 120 would be great. It would open up so many new possibilities for Runescape to expand to a much greater game. Way to many people have 99s now they've truly lost their significance imo. Thumbs up Jagex if this implemented for all skills.

I would be happy with increasing the cap to 120. The only problem I foresee is current bosses becoming akin to chickens.

This is by far the most fascinating aspect of the update.
The possibility to continue all skills to 120 and get new skill capes of true mastery.
I could again focus solely on combat and agility. <3:

Not sure how i'd react if they increased the cap to 120. Sure, it'd be nice to unlock new stuff in the skills i've already got to 99 but then again, the difference between 99 and 120 is massive. Don't even have 104M total exp after however many years i've played this game.
Maybe it will just be for this skill, we'll need to wait and see.

Jagex isn't removing the 99 level cap lol. It just doesn't make sense as it would piss off almost everyone who isn't max total.

Well, how about this. The 120 cap is made only for people who have a lot of 99's. They get to the bottom of daemonheim, get 21 more new exciting levels to grind, and BAM, they stay in runescape for another four years or so.

I could easily see them doing it & implementing tiered capes.

It's like when you get your college degree. You have your base colors for your Bachelors field; but when you get your Masters or Doctorate there are more geegaws & bric-a-brac on the cape. I could see Jagex doing that with all the capes.

Not that I am advocating it - I could just see them take this approach.

The experience dramatically increases per level. It's supposed to be really fast around 60.

There was a constant growth equation posted on RSoF and it proved to right correct for levels 1-30, so I'd believe it was right all the way to 99.

This is a nice first step into removing the 99 cap. I've been waiting 5 years to get my attack stats above 99 as base levels... Really hope for a removal of the cap in the next year or so...


I really can't imagine this going down particularly well within the community. Many people will be furious that they got 99 in a skill and they're no longer the best they can be in it.
It's certainley interesting.

At first I was going to be really angry about it. However, by the looks of it you will still be able to have a cape at 99, just better things to do at 99+. Just my thought on this.

I would love to have Bric-A-Brac with a degree. :P

This is a very interesting perspective to think about. It has always been rumored and guessed at, but I never thought I would see the day when a level reaches past 99 as a cap. Now the rumors may continue on whether this will or would be formulate to all skills... the plot thickens.... hmmm....
A reflection is just a distorted reality held by glass and your mind.
