Wouldn't that just make it wholly non-inclusive for anybody on Legacy?

... Kinda wish they'd just remove Legacy combat system, but this sounds much more fun!

Have those peeps run up to a mob. *IMMUNE* *IMMUNE* *IMMUNE* hitsplats everywhere!

You are not likely going to kill Drakan in The Lord of Vampyrium without Anticipate and Freedom already. So, why not some boss that is only vulnerable to certain abilities?

I see that as a reasonably possibility. Perhaps Jagex won't make it outright that some new boss/mob must be killed with an ability like "Resonance", but they can such a boss 100 times more annoying if you don't use Resonance.

Another example is Hard Mode Zilyana. You know you need Ultimate ability, right? Sorry EoC haters. :D

Abilities already make up the bulk of your DPS, autoattacks are negligible unless you're on legacy mode. So I don't see this happening, because it's pretty much already like this unless you're on legacy, and while Jagex isn't going to cater to legacy players, they also aren't going to go out of their way specifically to punish them.

you basically want a boss immune to 4taa or something like that?

Auto attacks are very useful for long term dps. I use them all the time but not using 4taa.
Look deep down inside.

Although I don't think Jagex design their games to favor or punish whatever combat style specifically, it is obviously from existing bosses that abilities are very much desired if not totally needed. For instance, as I mentioned Jagex did not stop making Hard Mode Zilyana only able to be killed with Ultimate despite of complaints from players who only play with legacy mode.

This is likely going to be the future trend. Nowhere did Jagex say every boss/mob will be designed to be killable without abilities now and in the future.
