There is no 99 cap removal at all. But, winthin the dungeons, you'll have to make the potions/boosts (AKA being herblorist skilled) to get the other areas.
Though, since that skill (minigame) is only related to the others in the point that you use other skills for this one (and not versa), the 120 cap is an original way to trim the cape.
Oh baby light the dark side...

Going on 10 years of Runescape and still no 99s, I guess if getting to the max so you can say you beat runescape is the goal it would be upsetting. For me though levels are secondary to the fun factor and friends. the levels just kind of happen. LOL 120 would would probably take me a good 30-40 years to reach if I cant do one 99 in 10 years time.

It would be interesting to see a new max for each level. It's been stuck at 99 for such a long time already...

Oh, and 200M exp equals to about level 126 and a half.

It all depends on the individual and their game goals. 120 or 99 really doesn't matter to me but it may be the holy grail for other. while totally POing someone who got all 99s.

Jagex said you will be able to set any level (as an objective in-game) to Level 120.

A little disasapointed in the new 120 cap. I'm sure maxed people will be happy as having something new to aim for but for the regular user who doesnt get to play very often getting to the max level has gone from being something very difficult but ultimately attainable, with a bit of hard work, to something which I don't ever see happening ever. It is now not just a distant goal for me, such as 99 prayer, but something I know will be impossible for me to ever attain. There is no fun in knowing you can never "complete" a game. It can already be enough of a grind to make you go insane getting to 99, I cant imagine the RSI you'd get from click click clicking your way to 120.

My best stats are:
Attack (104) 22,669,288 exp
Defence (104) 23,055,670 exp
Strength (104) 22,387,933 exp
Hitpoints (104 21,913,991 exp

And apart from combat stats my only skills above 99 are:
Fishing (100) 14,663,490

I've only got 237,038,266 total exp in ALL SKILLS. Dividing that by 104m would give me just two skills at level 120.

I worry what will happen to skills which are already extremely expensive such as prayer and herblore if you can raise them over 99.

Depressing.

The amount of XP from 93-99 is enough, never mind the XP from 99-120.

But a lot of people have that XP already, or will be close to it. 99s are very common, but 120s wouldn't be.

I like how you guys think that level 120 would be uncommon. Remember when level 99 was uncommon? That was before skill capes. People didn't get 99's because there was no reason to. Once there was a reason to get 99's, you started seeing them all over the place. My point? Not many people get 104mill exp in skills because they have no reason to do so. Once they do though, you'll see the skill cape effect all over again.

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.


I have 17 99's and would be ecstatic if the cap was lifted.

I still believe that skills should be unmetered, at least the non combat ones, where the more xp you get the higher your level. Why should it be restricted? If someone had 400 wc that would be impressive.

I think it'd be nice to add more levels. My only concern is they haven't filled the void in all of the skills for level 90+ they need to complete that before they start adding more level's to already established skills. I wouldn't mind going for 120 fishing though considering I enjoy the skill.

Upping the cap to 120 would almost certainly allow Jagex to introduce faster training methods. In fact, I do believe this is already happening.

To put it bluntly, [bleep] off.

There is nothing wrong with removing the cap, the idea of having 2 skill capes keeps the feeling of achievement for getting 99 while making lvl 120 a new achievement.

It would be a good idea to introduce worlds (especially bounty/pvp worlds) that would ONLY allow folks with lower than 99 skills to enter.

Oh geesh, I just had a thought (and my ominous ones often come true).

Remember how they were planning to update Smithing?
Yeah...

Would if they alter the xp formula for the amount required to reach new levels so you only need like 50mil xp for 120?

I'd probably quit if the level cap was boosted to 120. Seriously that would mean one maxed stat(at 120) would equal about 9 current max stats. I'm not saying I play this game for just 99s but I do like having some sort of feeling like I can actually achieve a 99 without having to spend my whole life for it. Been playing rs for like 6 years and I only have 130m total xp, 104m xp for one maxed stat would kill me.
