What Do You Do Now That You Have Max/comp Cape?
Posted 19 January 2013 - 07:01 PM
Alot of my friends are reaching these end-game goals now and I am not too far off them myself, but with the absence of levels to gain what is there left to do in Runescape?
Some people I know have quit or become far less active. They have been unable to find new goals to achieve/things to enjoy doing and, perhaps viewing achieving comp/max cape as "completing the game", decide that they have reached the point where they can be satisfied in leaving the game behind.
Other people decide to set themselves new goals based around xp, such as getting to 20M xp in every skill or maybe even aiming for 200M in a skill, or try to compete against other high-level players to ascend through the ranks of the Highscores.
In my case I think I will devote my time after maxing to exploring more aspects of the game I never usually experience. With no target to aim for I would like to try and learn new things like becoming great at PvM and skilling efficiently. Perhaps I will also take the chance to complete my collection of xp-boosting clothing sets with the rare black ibis items, as well as go hunting down other elusive items

That money will in turn be used to spend on costly 200m skills .
Also, just do what I enjoy. Such as player owned ports, (can't think of other things I enjoy besides skilling..).

Got 200M Cooking over the course of half a year
Now pretty much all I do is Player Owned Ports, war, and DG with clanmates.

Some of the happiest moments I've ever had on RS were on Skype with friends, post comp cape. One time comes to mind where out of the blue I said to one of my friends "W77, Dae". Thinking they're coming to DG, they complain about it for a bit before finally coming. I know they're a true friend... Since they just dropped everything to come do a skill they hate, just because I asked them to. Instead of inviting them to a party, I give them ~1.7b in supplies that they needed to finish maxing. They freaked out for 20+ minutes before calming down enough to say thank you. Hearing that kind of joy... Brought forth because of something I just did in a game? It's pretty cool.
I got my comp cape on October 16th, 2011 (my brother's birthday easy to remember). Since then, I've given out thousands of free S/L floors to random people in zchat and w117, gained billions from selling floors legitimately and given away billions to help out friends in need. I also broke 100m in 3 stats, 200m in one, and got that elusive Ibis+SotG set that you mentioned . I'm far less active now due to EoC... To be honest, I haven't logged in for the past two weeks. But I really can't get past how much they've changed the game It definitely killed a bit of what kept bringing me back. I have yet to completely quit, but I am getting pretty close.

ive also set a small goal of 15m xp base, but im not really actively working on that. i do train agility alot though, and that would probably be the only skill i would find worth training towards 50/100/200m xp. (besides dg of course)

I really haven't played much since I maxed apart from coming on every few months when there's a big quest or large update. I occasionally DG when this happens to see how the game has improved upon it. Right now im playing again because of POP and I'm getting back into the DG flow. It seems incredibly easy now + getting free daily xp makes it bearable. I also love the fact that I no longer depend on finding teams to get a decent xp rate. Solo dg may not be the most efficient but I do like soloing every once in a while when I know i'm not going to get a full 20 min of uninterrupted game play.

Much like the other maxed players that have posted, irl commitments started popping up in place of RS. The icing on the cake however was definitely the EoC. Many other updates and irl commitments aided in my decision to stop playing as well, but the EoC was definitely the catalyst that really told me it was time to move on.

I would also hunt for a purple phat, and I'd like to play with my lover and go boss hunting together :3
I don't think I'll ever aim for trim comp. But 200m xp in attack would be something I'd like.
