Equipment Rebalance: Ranged Meta (15-Jun-2021 12:01:41)



In recent months, we've discussed the need to adjust the balancing of ranged weapons in Old School RuneScape, and we've pitched numerous ideas for how to do it.

Much of the discussion involved how we should fill the gaps created by the rebalancing changes. We'd like to offer these proposals in this poll, and we'll use the voting trends here to inform how we might handle similar scenarios in the future.

This poll will close on Monday 21st June.
