P'hats aren't tradeable, that's why they're so expensive.
I wish there were a prayer that recharged prayer points.

It always amazes me how can they be so clueless about their own game.

Very interesting, definitely looking forward to the next one. As a clan leader, I can honestly say that everything mentioned about how EOC has affected many clans (negatively) is overwhelmingly true.

The "year of the clan" succeeded at killing of almost all PvP clans. Maybe that's what they meant. :kanye:

The EoC was the final nail in the coffin, but let's be honest, it was a pretty big freaking nail. Most top clan's memberlists had already begun to drop leading up to the EoC release due to the negative perception, once it implemented they pretty much fell off a cliff. The state of clanning now is a joke.

Look at the top clans (in no particular order) before and after the 'year of the clan' and the introduction of the EoC (a few of these numbers might be a bit off, doing it from memory):

January 2011
Runescape Dinasty - 150 members - pulled 80-120 to fights
Violent Resolution - 220 members - pulled 80-170 to fights
The Titans - 110 members - pulled 65-100 to fights
Divine Forces - 110 members - pulled 65-100 to fights
Echo of Silence - 110 members - pulled 50-80 to fights
Reign of Terror - 110 members - pulled 65-100 to fights
Solace - 95 members - pulled 50-80 to fights
Corruption - 100 members - pulled 50-80 to fights
The Rising - 100 members - pulled 50-80 to fights
TRWF - 85 members - pulled 50-60 to fights
Fools - 85 members - pulled 50-60 to fights
Chivalry Legions - 80 members - pulled 50-60 to fights
Wilderland - 70 members - pulled 40-60 to fights
Infliction - active P2P clan
Brutality - active P2P clan
Kill Orgy - active P2P clan
Ancient Fury - active P2P clan
Infliction - active P2P clan
Higher Forces - active pure clan
EoP - active pure clan

January 2013
Runescape Dinasty - Dead
Violent Resolution - Lost 73% of memberlist
The Titans - Lost 70% of memberlist
Divine Forces - Lost 55% of memberlist
Echo of Silence - Dead
Reign of Terror - Dead
Solace - Lost 45% of memberlist
Corruption - Dead
The Rising - Dead
TRWF - Dead
Fools - Dead?
Chivalry Legions - Lost 45% of memberlist
Wilderland - :pst 66% of memberlist
Infliction - Dead
Brutality - Dead
Kill Orgy - Dead
Ancient Fury - Dead
Infliction - Dead
Higher Forces - Dead
EoP - Dead

I guess your clan is lucky if you only lost 50% of your memberlist. EoC may be a more engaging combat system for the solo player or monster hunter, but it's abolute garbage for large-scale warring. Jagex is trying to turn their game into any other button-mashing MMO clone, strange move in my opinion since 1. Other MMO's have been doing that style longer and better, and 2. Other similar aged MMO's are also losing players.

Runescape lost the one thing that made it truly unique, a combat and drop system that encouraged large scale wars. The new system encourages 10 vs 10's or 20 vs 20's, and that's exactly what we're getting. And in clan wars to boot. Awful.

On topic: Glad to see someone taking an interest in the Clan seciton with this Chronicle. Thanks for the effort. Wished there were more people to read it and get involved with it.

This was actually the first issue in quite a while. Nonetheless, we're hoping to do more and hope you enjoy reading it!
