If you play efficiently enough maxing an account(apart from 120 dungeoneering perhaps, that's around 400 hours on it's own) would take less than 2000 hours ingame time. So yeah, the trim requirements right now are about on par with maxing another account, mainly because of the cw requirement.
Its theoretical, obviously..
The point is,if you want to trim it - you should have to do the same amount of work as it took you to get the cape in the first place.
So imagine having to get the completionist cape on TWO accounts - that's the amount of work it should be to get a trimmed one.
But 120 dungeoneering should be included (it's a requirement for untrimmed afterall ) so that's 2400 hours (100 days play time).
And again, only assuming your able to be super efficient for 100 days solid play - i highly doubt anybody who owns an untrimmed completionist cape has anywhere near only 100 days of playtime.
So my point is, to trim the cape you should have to do at least 100 days worth of play time in order to trim it - someone said 5000 CW tickets is 90 days... Sounds like a pretty fair requirement to me.
You neglect that a trimmed 99 is > a untrimmed 99
A trimmed completionist just gives another emote...
If you're going to compare two things - they should scale similarly.
You shouldn't be wasting >a year of playing to get pretty much nothing added.
Sounds silly TBH.
I'd say it is scaled fairly. As I pointed out 5000 CW Tickets is 90 days, where as a (very very low in my opinion) 100 days is what has been said it will take to get a completionist cape.
More than 10 days difference, and tbh a measly +4 prayer bonus (especially when a soul wars cape is better anyway) isn't something you'd get another 99 for - you get it for the cosmetic trim and the achievement itself.
Infact when I was getting my 2nd 99 in order to get my own trim (and I hate to say it, but I got fletching to trim cooking ) I wasn't even aware that the trimmed cape had any better stats - I just wanted to have that trim, to show that I had at least 2 99s.
