I would like to suggest a few new rewards for castle wars, strictly decorative.


Full Helmets


More expensive versions of the current medium helmets. Make them 5, 50, 500 or 6, 60, 600 for the teirs. Nobody really enjoys the looks of the medium helms, these would be a great success immediately (keep medium helmets also).


Decorative Shortbows


oak, willow, and maple variants at 5, 50, 500 tickets respectively, so they are in line with the longswords.


Decorative Range Top/Bottom


Maybe there could be legitimate range/mage items instead of the strictly defensive pieces currently there. Range armour is easy enough to follow the current tiers (leather, studded, frog leather/green d'hide). The third tier would need to be members only, or be boosted to the stats of green d'hide (I'm think the latter option is probably best).


Other Comments


I do have concerns since there's not really lower level teir'd mage gear at all, and it would feel like they are getting shafted. If we do indeed end up filling gaps with magic gear, I think magic should get some options here too for some legitimate gear. Maybe we can give them decorative staff options (4 elemental staffs seems rather nice?), although I'm not sure where to price them ticket-wise.

I've wanted Castle Wars to have more rewards for a long time. I currently hsve 225 tickets and out of reach of top tier. Saving for it though. Would be nice to have more options to spend on while in the process.

I've always thought the Castle Wars flag would be a neat reward. (both zammy and sara) Just for cosmetic bragging rights. Not every reward has to have stats, imo.

Anyways, good ideas here and I support the suggestion.



>Also, what happened to the black, tan, and white capes? The ones for kills/flag caps? Talkin back in the RS2 days, IIRC. Were they an addition to old armours? I forget. :/ I probably earned 100 or so tickets back then and was never big on combat (mining being my passion.)

I like the full helm idea, should have a flame tail instead of cotton and be wearable inside of CW.
I also think that decorative armour should give a defence stat upgrade while inside of CW and increase the amouunt of HP each bandaid heals, like cw bracelet.
this will help scorers out and motivate people to play cw.

Sorry, but I'm going to have to disagree.

First of all, allowing the helmet to be worn inside would be very overpowered. That means stats in the headslot, which is currently empty. I am fine with whatever look, I am sure the team is capable of coming up with something that looks nicer than the current medium helmet.

As for boosting the gear's stats and adding effects inside the game: No.

They tried that in RS3 and I really didn't like how it turned out. At that time, Profound was given damage boosts. You could literally barrage 50s wearing full profound, it was absolutely broken. You can already barrage over 40s with current damage boosting things. All of these DPS boosts really make scoring un-enjoyable.

You basically are dead if they freeze you, so it becomes a roll of the RNG dice, where if you can get the few splashes you need to go in and out, you are fine. Some legitimately good scorers even decide to suicide after getting frozen early, as it's not worth the extra time investment to try and tank. They'd rather just try again.

Therefore, I'd like to stick to STRICTLY cosmetic rewards, that have similar stats to existing gear. Unfortunately, magic doesn't have too many mid level options, so I can't come up with a tier'd reward for them.

If you want to get people to play more castle wars, there needs to be a monetary /item reward.

It's not 2005 anymore, and the playerbase doesnt care about cosmetics, let alone ugly ones. They want useful rewards or money.

i don't know about that, i just play it for fun and get rewards from the shop every now and then. (hence the zammy cloak i wear almost every time i melee) (then again castlewars cloaks are BiS F2P since they don't drop when you die)

It's not on the list, but I sure do remember it from back in the day, it had the price of 400 or 500 tickets and it was a purple shield that required 40 defense to use. I've always been in support of updating and fixing older mini-games instead of creating more stuff.
