One of the many complaints many people have of tool belts is they are too op. I would like to hear from some of those that say this as to why.

The way it evolved in rs3, I can see that. You could add a dragon ax (or better if they have it) and thus it would remove the need to carry it. But if it was limited only the bottom level (i.e. bronze ax) would it be op? If you had to click every time until you got a log, rather than automatic like it is if you carry an ax, would that be better.

IF you want to see op, here is a list of what rs3 has. (appears link is failed https://runescape.wiki/w/Tool_belt)

Personally, I would rather see it as limited to:
chisel
bronze ax (perhaps requiring a sperate click for all attempts).
bronze pick (see above)
tinderbox
saw
hammer
edit:
Keg added the knife
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

They aren't overpowered. They just make content redundant. A toolbelt pretty much erases the need for a variety of items. Tinderboxes, for example, will have their purpose relegated solely to stupid stuff like that burgh de rot quest that needs like ten of them.

It trivializes preparing for engaging with content, it opens up inventory space which affects balancing, and it makes tools worthless. Would Underground Pass be the same if you didn't have to bring a bunch of items to prepare?

Toolbelts don't really have a place in runescape. Perhaps the multitool in rogue's den could be upgraded to something else, like an adze or some other tool combo. But as for toolbelts themselves, the best reasoning against it is in your signature. ;)

I cant see that they would do more than open a couple spaces in your bank and maybe in your inventory, but that's me.

As for the underground pass, I never saw that you needed to have your inventory stuffed with food and supplies. I always got through with most of what I started with.

Part of the fun of runescape is items having weight. You recognize them instantly. You need a spade but forgot it, you better get one. That gives it value.

A toolbelt? It deletes that value of the item. You may as well remove spades and axes and chisels entirely and just give them to new players immediately. You may as well remove the need to shovel or cut or sew or whatever else, your character now innately knows how to do it without any tools.

It's dumb. If you want a toolbelt play RS3, keep that garbage out of oldschool

No support for easyscape updates. I have voted no to any "QOL" updates and i will continue to do so. Its not that its op, its more that it doesnt belong in OSRS. Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

This is a literal meme. Every skiller "QoL" is just a bunch of easyscape. A bunch of little things such as one extra click that add up over time. Toolbelts are more of the same. They're just demanded by easyscapers who despise grind and wanna demand that the game be made a joke just so they can be good at it.

That being said, I'd only support it if it costed 25m per slot (25m for a chisel, another 25m for a hammer and so on). It's a very minor cost for such a huge convenience and would help offset the revs inflation that spite voters caused.
If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

You still have to buy them. Its little more than a nuisance to forget them, but no big deal either. As I said, I don't see it as doing anything more than removing a couple spaces in your bank for things like that, even though the reality is, many people just buy them when they need them and throw them away afterwards.
