Recent trend to include PvM into Comp Cape, i.e. Rush of Blood [Split]

Recommended Posts

 

 

It all comes down to whether or not you're going to put in the effort to achieve your goals.

 

...

 

Please, 'learning' to kill a boss is not something worthy of "put in the effort to achieve your goals." The people who are complaining about this requirement (of which I am not one) have no problem with putting effort in - they've already obtained the comp cape several times with the traditional requirements, which required far more effort than a little rs 'pvm'. Most of these people are complaining about the nature of these latest reqs, which are dissimilar to what the comp cape used to stand for.

 

To be frank, those people have a stake in this discussion - do you? If not, maybe you should think twice before putting them down by suggesting they are not willing to put the effort in.

 

So, what exactly did the comp cape used to stand for? Pointless grind for hours on end (Livid, MTA)? Doing minor things which are an absolute waste of time had they not been reqs (miniquests)? How lucky you are (ports, dark beast tasks as of now)?

 

There is nothing wrong with adding some requirements to comp which requires more than simply "click this, click that, repeat". Not even that hard to get either.

Completionist cape is supposed to be for everything in game regardless if you are a pvmer, pker, minigamer, quester, skiller, etc. Im waiting for some pk requirements next...

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I'm happy they are actually including PvM in the requirements. Sure, I was pissed off at first, but after a while I sucked it up and simply learned how to do the bosses and had a lot of fun doing so. I never did ROTS before, for example, but now it's one of my favorite bosses to do.

 

I really hope they don't go back on this decision. It's supposed to be difficult and challenging to get the Completionist cape.

It was a mistake to have the Completionist cape not require many if any boss kills in a game where the primary focus is combat. People definitely have a right to complain, but complaints should be directed at Jagex for trying to retroactively add in requirements, not because those requirements exist.

A few points:

 

-Yes, they have changed the requirements for Comp Cape. So what? By it's nature its an evolving thing and with new updates new requirements are added all the time. It wasn't exactly written on sacred stone somewhere that Comp could never have PVM requirements.

 

-Many would argue and have argued that Comp, in principle, was supposed to be inclusive of all sorts of gameplay aspects, not just skilling but PVM too. That it didn't have such requirements until recently was an oversight/mistake that was rectified.

 

-Everyone has a stake in this discussion - it's silly to suggest that only those who can't do PVM have something at stake. The natureof the Comp Cape and the game affects everyone to varying degrees.

For everyone who says team activities and pvm shouldn't be cape requirements..

 

You were forced to play fog and ba, which require a team before, and fight nomad and do dominion tower.

Indeed. Not to say I don't like the team requirement, but yeah.. This is a MMO with the majority of things based around teamplay.. So yes, teamplay should be a requirement for the BIC cape.

Fog and ba are song only, so you don't actually need to do any participating. At least you do have to win a cw game for comp ;)

I'd say PvM itself is not bad, but the thing that you can't get those things done unless you just happened to have ~200m+ lying around to buy level 90 weapons to get on the teams

I'm sure you can find someone to do one kill with you or lend you the stuff, or at least buy a leech as a last resort :v.

I'm lucky enough that my friends happen to like doing group PvM, which is all of Nex, KK, Rago and Rots. I rock at DPSing in chaotics and warpriest ;) I don't own any end-game gear and never bothered to borrow from anyone.

 

The key to doing the bosses isn't your gear, it's understanding boss mechanics and being able to exploit these mechanics whilist dealing damage and surviving yourself.

 

It's the same story with Araxxor.

I play rs3 maybe 1 hour a day max, my friends play old school so getting anyone to lend weapon or rather, even have a weapon is question out of this world. Official forums on runescape don't even think of getting someone without experience or good weapons, leech groups prices are probably astronomical for my 50m bank.

That's poor reasoning on a few levels.

 

1.) It can be done with T80 equipment. Sure you can't farm many kills per reset, but it is doable.

 

2.) It's the second highest item reward in the game. There is *zero* issue with it being hard to get, or requiring higher levels of gear. Herblore, prayer, etc all cost a ton to level. No issue with needing higher gear anyway. Not to mention you can sell em afterwards.

 

It's a double bind. Either you don't need the gear, and your argument is invalid, or even if you do need higher levels of gear it isn't an unreasonable requirement. 

 

And lastly, the kicker. If you can't find a way to complete the one challenging aspect of the cape, you don't deserve it to being with.

You are going way off here, I'm not saying that it can't be done with 80 weapons, I'm saying that getting to teams without either t90 weapons or t90 armor (non port) is almost impossible because probably only 1% of teams trying to find random guys don't want anyone without either of those. And yes this is including mass groups as well

I don't see that as an issue, or a reason to change. It's an illogical stance. Why? Because there are many reasons it's simply an excuse.

 

1.) Make your own group. Form a mass. Recruit friends. Watch videos. Learn how to do it. You don't need to farm, just get one kill.

 

2.) Buy better gear. As states, considering the price of buyables, which you need at 99 anyway, the gear requirement isn't unreasonable, especially since it isn't needed. 

 

3.) Buy a kill. Seriously, if you don't want the gear, you can't afford 10m or heck even 20m or whatever for a kill? That's less than 5 hours of money making. Far less time than most other requirements. 

 

4.) Find a team that will help you learn, or a mass. Seriously, they exist.

 

Basically the only bosses that might be hard to begin with are vorago and araxxor. And if you can't find a way to kill them, you aren't a completionist. Sorry.

I mean back when I was the only guy selling rago kills for 60m each I can see how it would be expensive.  But now you can literally leech it for like 5m.

Speaking as someone who used to have the same opinion as you 2 months ago. You are wrong.

 

If you need to do ROTS  , joing the FC 'TeachingRots'        It is run by an awesome player called Captain Onyx and he spends hours of his own time teach players how to do ROTS, you only need a Chaotic staff and seasingers. It takes a day or 2 or waiting in the fc to get a place, but you will.

 

if you need to do rago join the FC 'Rago PVM'  , You also only need chaotic staff and seasingers for this. The teams are so big you can do practically nothing and still get the kill, as long as you try do damage you don't need to pay. 

 

As long as you watch/read some guides you will do fine in both these FC's.  I too have only 1hr a day to play , and I dont have teamspeak and I successfully got my kills done over about 5 days.    i promise you can do it and there are players willing to help you, they are not a nonexistent 1%.
