I think the Wooden shield of OSRS should be added with a buff as a new content in Smithing where we players can make a Round Shield?

To make a Round Shield, players are required these materials

Bronze Round Shield
Wooden Shield + 1 Bronze Bar
Iron Round Shield
Wooden Shield + 1 logs + 1 Iron Bar
Steel Round Shield
Wooden Shield +1 Oak logs 1 Steel Bar
Mithril Round Shield
Wooden Shield + 1 Willow logs + 1 Mithril Bar
Adamant Round Shield
Wooden Shield + Maple logs + 1 Adamantite Bar
Runite Round Shield
Wooden Shield + 1 Yew logs + 1 Runite Bar

The round shield shall be weaker than a Sq Shield though in defence
(except for bronze where it will have the same def bonus with bronze sq)

The reason why logs are required is because to make it more sturdier so that the metal bar attached to the shield makes the shield more durable and stronger

It may look a little bit impractical to use due to it's lack of defence bonus but Wooden Shields offers 0 penalty towards Range and Magic Attack

So I think that F2P and P2P starter players that is on a very tight budget can benefit using the shield due to it's low cost.

Along the way, If the idea of this wooden shield buff is passed, then Treasure Trails may also received Round Shields contents by adding (g), (t) and god trimmed contents just like the new Wooden Shield(g) received. Not to mention maybe the round shield with the god trimmed will get the God's Icon emblem on the shields as well?



So thoughts on this random idea?

Would be beneficial if mage could use it in F2P.

Oh yeah, the primary benefit could be no magic damage reduction or very minimal. Haha.

But wooden shield is already so OP as is.. (lol)

 

A pretty good idea, considering the current best option for defence without negative magic attack is an anti-drag shield comparable to an iron sq shield I believe.

Yeah let's bring over batwing as well and allow f2p to use blue dragon hide. I support.

I guess Crest had the last laugh after all. In a fight with Dfall he said something along the lines "How long till you leave 'The' "



It's not blind trust. In order to get the moderator rank, you need to show your loyalty to RSC by working for years as a CL, and you need to prove your trustworthiness in that time. Think of CD staff as a clan in and of itself: who do you think a moderator would be more loyal to, the clan they were in for a few weeks (or literally just joined), or the clan they worked hard in for years? To assume a moderator would throw all his hard work away just to impress his new buddies is absurd.

If you still are concerned, then use a proxy just like you would do if you visited a rival clan's board, but I and the entire admin staff are 100% confident our moderators do not and will not leak IPs.

I know you're baiting, but there is a fundamental issue with magic equipment distribution in f2p osrs.

 

OT: actually a good idea. Something fun, something that adds to the adventure component. I wish Jagex enabled this years ago..

Also, just decided to post this on OSRS official forums. Maybe some feedbacks from the people over there might be okay as well and thank you everyone for liking this, I also hope that this will be f2p contents

Rangers and Mages ought to have more variety, this is a great way of starting to tackle the problem. You should start adding precise stats now so we can get a better picture. Plus level requirements to make and XP given would be cool if it's possible for this to maybe even become a Smithing training method too?

teehee, thanks everyone for the support :D

yeah, I really like the idea of this Round Shield.

Mages in F2P/P2P will definitely benefit alot from this shield (especially those with really tight budget)

Would you be able to augment Mage-specific offhands like this too? For example, Rune-trimmed Godbooks (don't know what else OSRS players can use these days, haven't kept up with the updates). Of course the bonuses won't be as high as these shields, but enough to maybe keep them competitive?
