It shouldn't be made into power armor. There needs to be high lvl tank armor and power armor..

 

Nex is T80 power armor..

 

There is literally no place in the game where nex "power" armor isn't sufficient in defense to matter in comparison to ports "tank" armor. Battosai is right. Unless they make it so amazing in a new way like passive damage reduction it's not going to be useful and that would require an overhaul of all tank gear, which is far less likely than getting an option to make ports power armor in the next update so I'm hoping for that.

Would be nice to see some defensive weapons based on parrying affects... Maybe something to the effect of broadswords that operate as 2hers, but a chance to parry an attack (I know 2hers are pretty much the same).

Wouldn't it be possible to make power armour so that for increasing tiers, the defence stays the same, or even diminishes, while the power boost increases. That would make power the obvious choice for slayer and lesser bosses, but the higher ones would be too hard. That way power and tank armour would be entirely different, and make the choices between them more important at higher levels.

TBH I'd be more in favor of them adding 1h weapons that can do more powerful abilities. There is really only one offensive ult with a 1h melee and it is just a damage bomb

I think we'll get something like t85 tank weapons, weapons with t80 damage and t90 accuracy - super useful!

I had no idea how much I wanted this until I read this post.

People rarely need to tank in Eoc. T80 wand damage is the same as T1 wand damage and T90 accuracy is not much better than T80 unless bossing. I think Q was being sarcastic. Your post reminds me of people being happy with their iPhone 4 until the iPhone 5 is out.

Considering that I'm probably never going to be able to afford a true T90 weapon, having a weaker item that's still high-tier (to a point) and comes from skills rather than bossing sounds very appealing.

Well if they don't come with the ports update you can rest assured that ahrims is just as good for non bossing reasons unless you're attacking something weak to melee.

Yes.

 

I've been wanting to buy an ely/divine for a while now just to give some free LP with the shield abilities at GWD bosses. However, unlike 'back in the day', one hand weapons absolutely suck. Part of that is lack of any good abilities.

Mainhand+Shield should never come close to 2h or Dual-wield dps, which is a pity imo, but balanced. The idea of a shield is to survive for longer/allow others to focus on dpsing.

Though... you can use Reflect and Revenge to increase your dps, aswell as Berserk. Shields are not that bad, it's just best to not use them, stuff doesn't deal enough damage. :P

To be fair, if you're using a single one handed weapon, you probably have a shield in your offhand for which there are many powerful abilities. Unfortunately, while Jagex added tank abilities, we are still lacking tank gear and situations where tanking (tank armor and shield using defensive abilities) actually helps.

Having defensive combat limited to one or two bosses is ridiculous.

Yep and I agree! I still feel we should have bulkier defensive and offensive attributes. Actually it would probably be better worded as a larger gap between the two.

Maybe not replace the tank pop armor outright, but perhaps give an option to be able to convert such pop armor into power armor.

I suppose it might be relevant to mention this here, considering the discussion about power/tank armour and one-handed weapons: a little spreadsheet here that allows you to figure out a balance for a 2h > shield > dw > 2h triangle system.

 

And yes, I was being sarcastic about t85 'tank' weapons, referring to the great success of chaotic longswords. Sure, cls had some pvp uses and some record-attempting Bandos soloes, but maul was universally higher dps and ever since Torva you could just ss flash Graar with maul, making cls worse for staying power/convenience as well.

We need dual weild shields.

 

That way we could have 80% damage reduction from the front, and 200% damage taken from the back.

 

That way, kalphite king and nex can really have their fun on our rears!

I've tried to do the trio lacquer mission, but with a merchant I can't get higher than 60% or so.

 

Should I forgo the merchant and just use a FOTS?

Use the 10% boosts to up your chances (i used 3 of all 3). Never let your merchant off that voyage.

You're 87 Slayer, go kill Rorarii for keystones for a few days and you'll have enough money for a Drygore weapon.

After all these months I FINALLY got a 10k captain that beats my pre-existing captains in terms of preset traits and even he is a seafarer with a tactician trait.

They reallllllllllly need to give us a means to remove traits from captains -.-
