You asked for our opinions on how to make the game better in this regard.

Inevitably what I have to say will simply be lost to the flood of replies, but I think the absolute best thing that can happen for this game in regards to post 99 skilling is for 120 all skills to be released.

It would give an enormous opportunity for additional content to be added to the game that relates to skilling without the constant issue of making skilling easier. Releasing 120 in all skills could be used to completely revitalise skilling by providing actual incentive for levelling. As it is, people level skills for one reason, levels, there's not actually any purpose to it beyond that. If players could make money or other useful rewards from levelling beyond 99 on a level competitive with some PVM, it would be exceedingly beneficial to the whole game, from sheer gameplay enjoyment to things like the economy.

I know you've said in the past that you didn't want to release 120 all skills for various reasons, mostly along the lines of not wanting players to waste away in front of their computers. But with this intended prestige update you've demonstrated that post 99 is definitely on the table now, so I hope you consider it again.

I'm not sure how to vote. I have no interest whatsoever in participating
but I would not want to deny anyone who might like to participate.
So I will have to read more.


NO way at all would I want to see skill levels increased to 120 in place of prestige.
The point of the journey is not to arrive.

This is what happens to every other mmo around, they expand by increasing level cap.

Sure you don't need to raise the cap to 120, 105 to begin with maybe and when majority of players starts to reach it, increase it to 110/115/120/126

sure it would be a pain to train after a while but that's why there's new content to do which gives higher xp rates. Also you might need to rebalance the entire xp curve for each skill to be more or less like dung in the end.

Meh.... don't really want it around, not because it's a bad idea in general but only because it will create tons of elitists and players acting like total jerks over who has more prestige, I have played arcanists and I know what happens with prestige, players act high and mighty and belittle everyone else who has lower or no prestige. I mean the ignore list can only hold so many players :/

I voted no, unfortunately..

There might be a better idea on what you guys can do for 99 players. Increasing the level cap would be nice, perhaps access to certain mini-games in the future? There's plenty of things you can do, just this isn't the best way to go IMO.

I'll never understand why runescape players vote no on these type of things because they won't use it, or don't want to use it, or think it's like a different game.

Stop being selfish. Some of us were excited about this update! Uoure denying those that want it simply because you don't want to use the prestige system, or because it reminds you of CoDfish. That's 100% selfishness, and we allll know that if Jagex had named it anything else, there would be more votes in favor of it. prestige is in countless games, many of which vastly predate your fish shooter.

Grow up.

If the prestige system was really aimed at the majority of high lvl players as you so claim I'm almost certain that the majority of us high lvl players would much rather prefer skill lvls increased from 99 to 120. Yea, you say that increasing skill lvl caps would take a lot of time but doesn't everything that comes out great take a lot of time too? Even if it would take a year at the drawing board I would still be for 120 lvls.

Sorry to break it to you but your view on this is selfish as well :/

Raise the level cap! Wait come up with stuff to do at the higher levels and then raise the level cap! I still don't understand why they only did that with dungeoneering!
