Why not combine LMS and PVP arena into one system.... this is the problem with most major games and companies. A billion updates and a billion and one things to do. Wearing out and dividing the player base. Its like pokemon. Who is gonnna sit down and try to "catch em all" when the pokedex reaches 5,000, with 4,000 useless pokemon nobody wants to use. And have to buy 10 different games to get them....
Focus on reviving existing content and ONLY adding new ones when it is desperately needed.

Don't worry, they couldn't even bother waiting until worthy rewards passed a poll so its dead content.

Not that I even want this update, the duel arena had plenty of people doing it until nincompoops started staking their life savings lol.

I'm a mobile player and would like to try the new Arena, but when i try to setup my inventory it won't allow me to switch spellbooks and stays on standard. I Dont want to play this if I can't use ancients. Robin

It's only a soft launch so I'm sure they'll make the necessary adjustments for the full launch next week.

Quality of life changes needed:

Allow saving of multiple kits for each account type max, zerk and pure.

Why not add Adamant gloves (wrapped), for players with 13 to 40 Defense, and I noticed no Defense requirements were mentioned for the wrapped gloves, but I assume it's 1 Defense for Mithril gloves, while it's 41 Defense for Rune and Barrows gloves.

Superior seems like it should be the name of the 70 Defense Calamity armor, while Elite seems like it should be the name of the 40 Defense Calamity armor. Several of the icons of the Calamity armor and headgear items look very familiar, so maybe changing the color scheme for each tier and/or combat style would be greatly appreciated.

The negative offensive and defensive bonuses are rather excessive. We understand you're trying to enforce the combat triangle, but there is no need for such extreme negative amounts. Might be a good idea to slightly boost the offensive bonuses as well, at least for melee, as they seem rather low.

There are several items in the supplies chest that cannot be used, due to the increased level requirements to wield them, or missing altogether, and also limiting is that 70 Defense is the default for mains and medium level builds, when it should be 75, at least.

As someone who's spent many hours playing the soft launch of the PvP Arena, I noticed almost nobody using the new equipment. Why? Because it isn't powerful or niche enough to be useful. The rewards are still lacking. We thank you for considering player feedback, but we need existing rewards to be improved, and many more new additions to this content, or else it'll have served little purpose and become dead content.

You were offered countless ideas in the PvP Arena server, I know that, because I contributed there. There's so much more you could be offering, whether it be Prayer or spell unlocks, upgrades or special effects to Blessings, Elemental or Catalytic runes, new and playful weapons, Prayer renewal potions, or anything else than the lousy and limited rewards currently offered. They're cool, but not cool nor useful enough.

What about adding the option to be able to filter spellbook and the runes you take within your runepouch, will that be available? for example; I switch gear at the top of my inventory (top switch) when I'm in the wildy on the normal mode. So I would only take runes needed for any ice spell (or ice sacks) and I filter the spellbook to where only 'show combat spells' and 'show teleport spells' show, this allows my barrage to be on the 5th position where an item would sit in my inventory. But as its not available, when I am playing on the pvp worlds, I then have to reorganise my inventory and start to bottom switch. After years of pking in the same style/inventory loadout, muscle memory and habit keeps taking me up the top of my inventory to change gear or whatever, when its at the bottom. Is this something that could get took into consideration/or is already in discussion within the team? Thankyou. G davies
