So with NEX possibly coming to the game in the future. Do you think we will see the tier 80 armour and wepons? (Torva , Pernix, Virtus, Virtus Wand and Zaryte Bow) Been here since the 2D days (off and on)

I believe they said in the livestream, "NO", already. Nex's loot will be tuned down to fit the OSRS level, so probably in the vicinity of Nightmare loot. Besides, I don't see Nex drops T80 next month and kills raid 3 when it still hasn't seen any daylight.

Even though they seemed to have said no to Rs3's drops, im wondering if they'll still kill the 3 cb style armor drops the same.

Sure the armors themselves might be different but id like to see them keep the 3 style them same at least.
I think they're very cautious when it comes to power creep, and so if they do decide to go up to t80 they aren't going to blow it all on a single drop table, because then they'd already be looking at t85 as the next step. Rather, I think if/when they do go up a tier they're going to spread it out over a number of years across multiple bosses/raids.
Anyone requesting updates to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

They are not going to add anything major like T80 gear to Nex. Nex wasn't in any of their roadmaps or even just causal ideas. They suddenly brought up Nex only because they have no permanent content the past few months and the next few months.

They had and will only have events and a GIM game mode for 6+ months. As you can watch the yesterday's livestreams, OSRS got questioned by players regarding their decisions on updates, so out of desperation they are trying to find this easiest thing to put some permanent content up as a stop gap solution, so they are only copying Nex from RS3 as a stop gap solution out of desperation.

I seriously doubt Nex will give anything major bot loot-wise and content-wise. Nex probably doesn't come up with any lore and stories consistent to OSRS's lore like what the original Nex from RS3.

How are they gonna do nex when curses don't exist in osrs? Are we getting prayer scrolls for curses?


I don't think so. Actually OSRS will not be just missing Ancient Curses but a lot of advanced content like summoning familiar and T80 weapons from the time of the real Nex.

OSRS's Nex will be OP to OSRS players and I don't think it is meant for solo or a smaller group. It is probably going to be a boss for larger groups.
