Failed Noob/Ryley here.
Because some of my posting privileges have been revoked on the other account, I'll need to post them on here. I'm just going to post the issues with the newest update and perhaps make some points that would inspire some changes.
Recently (If you read my old forums post in News & Announcements), Strykewyrms and Frost Dragons were added into Slayer tasks. While this was a good idea at the time, gold has become more and more common in the game. I don't remember having more than 20B cash a year ago, and now it's become common to stake 30-40B amounts easily.
To make things worse: this new Barrows Shop™ has been added in. While this makes the items available for players, My Dharok's sets alone have risen from being 12-12.2B in items to 37.5B in items overnight, and that's not counting the other 100 or so barrows items that I worked for in the past. While i'm not complaining of the increased bank, this surely should be seen as an issue to other players. If a new player were to join today and wanted to catch up to me, they would need to acquire 2334 Dharok pieces. Assuming that I would stop playing entirely.
Not only has this shop completely invalidated going to barrows, unless you want to make a few hundred million here and there - It has removed yet another challenge for players to acquire items.
This shop would have been a better idea when we had more players, but in my opinion this isn't going to keep people around, it's just making it easier for others, and making me richer.
Please feel free to post your ideas, and agreements/disagreements about this on this forum post, as I am aware that I may be viewing this as one sided.
