DPS gear but insufficient tank gear from StevenCao's blog

If you have been holding off revisiting the match, or have RuneScape gold yet to give it a try, I strongly recommend you do this -- just remember Old School Runescape, that will be for those who seek a more timeless experience.Now, if you will excuse me, I must travel afar and start building my Hunter to make some serious money.

Old School Runescape, the antiquated version of Runescape that still looks and plays like the game I snapped innumerable hours in to when I actually should've been studying, is getting a raid. Its next raid, as it happens: The Theatre of Blood. A good raid requires good rewards, therefore when the Theatre of Blood was declared late last year, players were anxious to see what clearing the multi-man challenge would earn them. Jagex responded with Justicar armor, a brand new best-in-slot armor set (above). There was one little problem: gamers absolutely hated it.

They memed on it so hard that Jagex is now totally altering the armor's design. Virtually all of Old School Runescape's updates go through player polls, but this is the first time that the suit of armor was forged in a fire of memes.

The irony is that while gamers loathed the'closing' armor revealed earlier this season, they loved the prototypes shown when the raid was declared. Originally, the Justicar armor was part of a trio of new armor sets, West tells me, but since the Theatre of Blood went from obscure concept to real material, the armor changed with it. Players said there was sufficient DPS gear but insufficient tank gear, so it had been narrowed down to just 1 armor set. And if they were just going to use one set, Jagex guessed they might as well make a new one based on the armor worn with the raid's huge bad.

"We thought changing it a little made sense," West says,"but players weren't quite on board with the first proposal buy OSRS gold we shared on stream. And then, well, Reddit went crazy."
