Skilling outfits bonus xp

Wed Jan 24, 2018 7:00 pm

As a relatively small QoL update in between our larger updates, Andres has recently been working on adding skilling outfits which can be bought with agility tickets. These tickets are obtained through completing agility courses; 1 ticket for the gnome course, 2 for the werewolf course and 4 for the deep wilderness course.

The price is currently set at 200 tickets per piece. Each full set contains 4 pieces (hat, top, bottom and boots). Each piece offers 2% bonus xp and you get 15% bonus xp instead of 8% when wearing a full set.

Considering brawling gloves already offer 30% bonus xp, adding another 15% xp to get a whopping 45% bonus xp seems a bit overkill. Therefore, my suggestion would be to have the skilling outfits offer only half the bonus xp when combined with brawling gloves. Each piece would then offer 1% bonus xp and the full set would offer 7% instead, so a full set plus brawling gloves only offers 37% bonus xp instead of 45%.

An alternative would be to have a set piece offer bonus xp up to a certain amount, for example 3 million xp until it breaks. However, this requires quite a bit of extra work to implement.

Let me know what you guys think. Also note that the end result of this poll does not determine how exactly we will implement it, it's mostly to have an idea what the community thinks and to know if anyone has alternative suggestions that most players can agree with

Straight 12% and combines with brawlers normally. If I wanted to grind, I’d play OSRS.

Or, have them degrade after 5M xp, but make them tradable. It’d make agility a nice money making method for new players. It’d be the “flax-picking” of PkH - a low effort, easy money making method.

This idea would have been great if we did have agility rooftops courses, and the tickets would be replacing the marks of grace. But having them at a maximum of 10% extra experience/full set combined with the set to be broken after x amount of experience obtained+requiring even more tickets to fix would be a great solution in my opinion.
Edit : also make all the sets untradeable. Any level 1 could go in the wilderness agility course and camp it all day and all night just to flood the economy with experince boosting items.

I don't think it's worth it to introduce a new agility course. People will grind agility at black warlocks anyways if they wanted the highest xp/h and right now the courses are barely used, so the rooftops will land in the same boat I guess..

I don't believe agility should be the only way to earn these tickets. Just seems silly that you'd limit getting them to a single (barely used) feature.

Why not spread out the manners in which you can earn them, and have a general 'skilling ticket'?

Other possible ways could be building rooms in a poh, or when fishing, or mining, etc.

I think 200 per piece is fair, and having agility as ONE method is good, but I don't think its a good idea to limit it to just that one skill. There's already an incentive to train it (unlimited run), add incentives to other skills as well.

Seems reasonable.

Definitely don't go with the 'breaks after a certain amount of experience' idea. 3 million exp? That's a little farfetched considering 2b would require 666 pieces meaning 133,200 'tickets' per skill.

Make them obtainable for good and untradeable of course. Cap their exp bonus at 5% instead of having them degrade.

This is a very reasonable approach I think. It makes the outfits viable but not overpowered.
Don't make them break or degradable. That's just a pain.

And they will stack with the spottier cape, is that correct?
