I agree.

From my experiences (and the reported experiences of players), the drop rates do need a bit of tampering with; there are too many items for the economy to handle -- there's not enough money to justify items having proper value.  The drop rates have felt very high, but that might just be due to the update that made NPCs weaker.  (Faster kills mean faster drops, which ultimately makes the drops too easy to get.)  I understand that flooding the game with the good items for the first week helps everyone get his/her hands on good armour or weapons; however, there's plenty to go around now, so the drop rates should be decreased, or the NPCs should be made more difficult, in my opinion.

The economy needs to be stabilized; as it stands, everything continues to drop in value.  Players will start quitting if things in this department don't change; I've already had to convince a few players not to leave over this, telling them that it's going to most likely be altered with later updates in order to stabilize everything.

I agree.

As Fate said, there's plenty of items right now, lowering the drop rates doesn't mean that there wont be coming items into the game, it'll just stop the game from completely overflowing.

I love the idea of having a week or so to build up the economy though, but in my opinion it'll have to be toned down a bit.

High drop rates are needed atm to build a bit of an economy.

We got enough items to go around with atm. If it goes on like this we'll lose plenty amount of players.
For example. Have you noticed the price of whips going from 3m to 1-1.5m in a few days??
I certainly have. There are just too many of them for the economy to handle right now.
& I totally agree with your statement fate.

If you guys convince Thomy enough to go through almost all NPCs and change their drop rates he must be committed to helping the server stay alive and keep the players he has over the past few days/weeks coming to the server.

It is pal. I've been at GWD for 3 hours with a few friends and gotten
3 godsword hilts + almost 2 bandos sets and a zamorak bow. It is just too easy to get items right now.. + got 12 abby whip drops in 2 hours orso at abby demons...

agree 100% for bandos 2 kills 2 hilts  like srsly? so many z spears have gotten into the game they were 250m at some point  including third age mele that once was 120m and third age range set was 400-450m now the vambs are only 10m if u want my openion i think there is enough items  in the game lowering the drop rates won't cut there existance

I agree with lowering the drop rates.

I went to GWD for 1 hour, and got Tassets, 2 hilts and 2 bandos boots. It's just way to high at the moment.

I went to Mithril drags last week and got 3 z spears in the time space of about 3 hours...

Although we needed to have high drop rates to start economy, there are a sufficient amount of items in game now to fulfill the players needs. Plus lowering the drop rates also gives players more gratitude when getting an item rather than just, "oh, another hilt.. how great." But hey that's just my opinion.

These prices are the direct result of it being dropped too often.

I'm already looking for lots of drop rates, and especially bronze-iron-steel dragons are way too easy for the high droprate of their items (esp visages). The power of the dragons will be adapted instead of the drop rate though, that should balance it a bit.

Zamorak spear is in a good spot, so is the dragon platebody and most godsword hilts. I'm not too sure about bandos pieces. Many people kill 300 mithril dragons and get no spear, and some get 2 spears in 50 kills, it's all about luck on that one and i think it's pretty ok right now.

I agree, about the Bronze/Iron/Steel dragons - its also about luck.. I have been killing around 50+ each day and I still didn't get any visage.. while my friend got 4 visages in 50 kills..

I agree. Lower drop rates are needed to get economy to normal, never thought about selling dfs for 2m, whip for 1.5m etc.

The way an Abby Whip went from being 5M to 1M within a week or two and how a DFS is now 2M when it was 6M last week. Something does need to be changed here.
