Cloak of Seasons

So it’s now summer and Jagex has some weird idea that what we really want this time is a cloak. Um, why?

It’s not really very good-looking but my real complaint is that it takes 600 items to create 1/4th of the cloak. So I would need 2,400 leaves, blossoms, etc. I have been making bonfires for over an hour and I have not gotten even 10 charred leaves. This means that I would need to hardcore game and not sleep for weeks just to get a cloak.

I could always buy it, of course but that is true of practically everything in Runescape. You can basically buy most stuff but where’s the fun and sense of achievement in that?

The only real way to get it through using the actual items is probably to buy more Treasure Hunter keys but since you need tons of items that means you would need tons of keys.

I thought microtransactions were meant to rid me of some pocket change (hence the “micro” part, but Jagex seems to be going for the people with deep, deep pockets. I would buy the cloak if it cost like $5-10 or maybe even more but I am not going to spend $500 on a virtual item that isn’t even going to make my character uber.

Sorry, Jagex, I’ll be keeping my┬áspare change in a jar and under the sofa for now.
