The irony is that while players hated the'closing' armor shown earlier this year, they loved the prototypes revealed when the raid was announced. Originally, the Justicar armor was part of a trio of armor sets, West informs me, but as the Theatre of Blood moved from obscure idea to actual material, the armor changed with it. Players said there was sufficient DPS gear but not enough tank equipment, so it was narrowed down to just one armor collection. And if they were only going to use one group of Runescape gold, Jagex figured 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 were not quite on board with all the first proposal we shared on stream. And then, well, Reddit went crazy."
The memes came out hard and fast. Some players said it was too similar to existing armor, including armor out of Runescape 3, the newer, mainline version of Runescape. Others believed the new armor did not seem tanky enough and liberally provided some choices, with some calling for a more extreme redesign.
It got so bad that some players began to seriously feel that a meme that the updated armor was by a different artist, which the artist who made the prototypes had left Jagex. But then something amazing occurred. Even as memes blotted out sunlight, slowly but certainly serious suggestions started to shine through. It began with crude Photoshop jobs, but shortly appropriate illustrations and fan art started to crop up. Players rallied around the notion of a bulkier, blessed armor group motivated by the Runescape god Saradomin, so they went back to West's prototype layouts and made some adjustments.
And then, a hero emerged: legend_arts, a talented and famous Runescape fan artist. Inspired from the memes and motivated by elements of West's designs along with other players' suggestions, buy OSRS Gold legend_arts created a hybrid armor design so great it not merely silenced the memes, it captured the attention of West himself.
