But why remove the requirement as the quest is extremely easy.

Consistency? Crazy, I know, but still.

 

Really, it's the F2P endgame. Makes sense with that in mind, just that they should probably work all three styles into it.

Ranged is worked into it as well (green dragonhide body), just not magic.

You do actually need Dragon Slayer to wear Batwing robe top.

They might have removed the req from Green dragonhide body and put it on Blue dragonhide body instead too, not sure.

Yes they did.

That is a good point, I still find it stupid though that nothing is required (asides from 60 defense) to wear a dragon platebody but a quest is required to wear a rune platebody.

 

Wasn't a quest requirement for the herblore skill removed? I think that was a welcome change.

 

But looking at the article on Dragon Slayer, without the rune platebody requirement there would be no reason to finish the dragon slayer quest since nobody cares about that maze that's also unlocked.

^Except for the fact that you cannot visit crandor without doing the quest, and you cannot finish 4 task sets (lumbridge, karamja, varrock, desert). You can also not start Heroes Quest which is required for Legends quest and Throne of Miscellania (so you cannot do MTK). Do I need to continue? :P

Rune pl8 is a good example of inconsistent content logically. Though for game balance it made sense.

 

A long time ago you used to have to choose between a plate or chain with gloves. Rune plate was the best plate in the game so it made sense to have a quest requirement for the best in slot gear.
 

Should it be changed now? No I dont think so. Its iconic at this point, more people would be annoyed to have it removed as a requirement then happy and finishing f2p up to dragon slayer and buying your full rune set is a pretty typical milestone people want to get before considering getting membership.

But don't any of you find it weird that a dragon platebody doesn't require anything asides from the defense level?

not really rune plate was craftable and available in a shop while a dragon plate (or chain) required boss kills and luck.

 

 

Rune plate was considered a quest reward while dragon plate/chain was considered a rare drop reward. They were brought into the game under different methods of balance

Still makes sense for ironman though, as rune plate is a lot easier to get than a dragon plate (except from diango) :P

Considering that all parts required are extremely rare drops from monsters not easy to kill, I think getting a dragon platebody without the grand exchange is nearly impossible.

Oh of course, how could I forget that?

It's been done numerous times, and I'd assume we have more than a few people on the forum who have had several platebodies worth of shards. They're not that hard to kill once you know what you're doing :v

Only ("only") 19 platebodies could have been made, though.

Another thing that makes no sense

Let's add vendor that sells every pickaxe

But let's not add a vendor that sells axes.

That's what the grand exchange is for.

 

Also, what vendor are you referring to? I really wanna know.

Most likely Nurmof, who is underneath Falador, and sells Bronze-Rune.

There wasn't a Grand Exchange in Classic.
