I really like the idea of Torva being introduced via as Nex rewards... and I DO like the idea of having to use Bandos to "activate" the Torva armor pieces.....BUT.... I think we need some clarification.

Will Torva and the new Zaryte Crossbow be degradable items, in which they will have (x) amount of usage and then become unusable / broken again, requiring more bandos and armadyl cbows to charge?

Or will the activation of these pieces be a One Time initial thing, requiring the Bandos and Armadyl cBow shards to initially activate Torva and the Zaryte cBow and nothing further after that?

I am totally AGAINST these items being degradable and having to re-charge these pieces time and time again with bandos and armadyl cbow shards....
BiS Degradable items feel cheap, will become an exhausting chore owning, and provides RS3 like vibes that just don't feel Old School.


Can a JMod or someone else please provide clarification on this?

Thank you

Rewards look great, nice job jmods :)

Slightly beside the point, Torva helm is going to render the serp useless everywhere except for zulrah now. I always thought that it should be +1 str better than the faceguard since the faceguard has no mage and range negative bonuses. (also mutagen flex dies :()

Looks great. What do you think of a a -1 prayer bonus instead of +1? That would be in line with another zarosian item: The ancient staff. Also it wouldn't be an upgrade across the bord this way.

This is a GREAT update.

I prefer this type of item sink as opposed to a GE tax and then item purchase to be deleted.

I hope this item gets rolled out for other items that are being flooded.

I like the armour but adding +8 strength to the Torva Helmet seems a little too much imo, especially since the Inquisitor helm is only +4!
Should just make the Torva Helm +6 to match the faceguard but make it more useful by adding an effect to the full Torva set like increasing your max Hp to 125 like it use to so it is still desireable.

Shame about the Zaryte bow but the Crossbow is much needed and makes sense for Gwd!

They should add the bow to Raids 3 insted and rename it Masori Bow and you hit additional targets per Masori armour equipt!
1 Additonal target just holding the bow on it's own then another per armour for a total of 5.

Makes sense too as they are ment to be powerful rangers but there isn't a bow to there name so hitting multiple targets at onces seems like a skill they would have.

This is.....GREAT!

Thank you for listening to feedback! While it is a shame Virtus and Pernix will not be part of this as it currently stands, I feel this makes Nex a far more enjoyable and reasonable boss to consider worth killing.

Hopefully Virtus and Pernix won't be too far off, but this is certainly a step in the right direction in my opinion; good s**t Jagex!

I don't get how hard hard it is to have Nex drop all these armor sets like it was done originally.

It may be low hanging fruit, but a step in the right direction is a good step in my eyes, so I'm personally pleased.

That said, I wish Nex would drop more appropriate and balanced versions of all Torva Virtus and Pernix.

Most importantly, "Desert treasure II" when? I am fiending for Zaros lore in this game.

I think broken Torva should be untradeable that keeps bandos alive and even if bots or players try to farm nex for items they will not be able to sell them without bandos.
Right now so many bandos items in game so lets say everyone hight or mid ranked player they got bandos it is mean they can use they own bandos to create the full set of Torva everything rest goes to GE if we want to keep bandos alive and make farm a little bit harder we need untradeable broken Torva
