Old School Runescape, the antiquated version of Runescape that still looks and plays like the game I sank countless hours in to when I really should OSRS gold been studying, is getting a raid. A good raid requires good rewards, so when the Theatre of Blood was declared late last year, players were not able to see exactly what clearing the multi-man challenge could earn them. Jagex reacted with Justicar armor, a new best-in-slot armor set (above). There was one little problem: players totally hated it.
In fact, they hated it so much that, for months, the Old School community dogpiled the horn on the 2007scape subreddit and memed it into hell and back. They memed onto it so tough that Jagex is currently totally altering the armor’s design. Virtually all of Old School Runescape’s upgrades go through participant polls, but that is the first time a suit of armor has been forged in a passion of memes.
The irony is that while gamers loathed the’final’ armor cheap Runescape gold earlier this year, they adored the prototypes revealed when the raid was announced. Initially, the Justicar armor was bulkier and part of a trio of new armor sets, West informs me, but since the Theatre of Blood moved from obscure idea to actual content, the armor shifted with it.
Participants said there was sufficient DPS equipment but insufficient tank gear, so it was narrowed down to only one armor collection. And if they were only going to use one set, Jagex guessed they might as well make a new one based on the armor worn by the raid’s huge bad.
