I don't suppose they could have waited until we unlocked level 85 gear before releasing level 90 items?

THIS!


PoPs have level 85 armor. This will be level 90 weapons. What's the problem?

Level 85 weapons should come before level 90 weapons. It makes more sense that way in my opinion. Regardless of how it has been done previously.

I see nobody's commented on the SoF/SGS this month. Good to see we've gotten past the phase of, "Wow gf RS, another SOF update! This whole month's been ruined!"

To anyone saying RIP dg - Some of us still don't have the money to buy even armadyl, so i think that DG weapons will find their place among the ultra-uber-give-me-three-partyhats-for-a-degradable-sword-and-one-for-repairing-esque gear.

I think everyone has grown a custom to having a monthly SoF/SGS update. Guess people don't feel the need to mention it anymore.

I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

I was wondering what happened to them. Guess they're coming out on Wednesday.

I'm glad that I don't feel obligated to do dung anymore, then though all of the new items will be out of my price range.

Possibly will impact the relative ease of training dung as chaotics will have less demand. May lower the price of Nex gear too!

I still won't use Nex gear because of the repair charge. Why use Torva when Bandos is sufficient for slayer?

Instanced team boss? Yes please.

Because Torva is spiky and jet black and makes everyone want to be you.

Nex gear won't be a status symbol if it isn't expensive or high tier.


Also, an instanced group boss may mean less competition, but it means that the drops from it will be much more common due to the ability for everyone and their mother to fight it at the same time.

True on both points, however I prefer a fight with the game rather than a fight with players, even if the payout is lower.

This relies on the assumption that the drops aren't made super rare to balance out instancing, y'know like how the nex armour drops are relatively common (as boss drops go) to balance out the difficulty.
It also relies on the assumption that they will be tradable.

The drops will always be worth less than had it not been instanced though which I believe was Vezon's point. I'm wondering though....if this boss is as hard as they say it is then judging by how empty Nex and corp have been (in the past when drops were actually worth anything) instancing might not be needed at all.

Chances are that the best weapons will be the duel mauls because we are lacking good one hand maul weapons.

Not saying I called it, but I was just telling someone how much I'd like it if the KK was like the QBD but with a party system. Looks like I got my wish!! :)
Although really I was hoping that tier 90 weapons would also come from DG... Warped Weapons Why??

No quest.... Withdrawl symptoms increasing.

edit also since they will be releasing new 90 weapons you think they have any plans for finishing out the chaotic tier and giving us a chaotic mace/warhammer, 2h and spear?
