The folks at Runescape have announced improvements to the way drops are decided in PvP worlds, with an overall result of more worthwhile loot.
This week, we have made some improvements to the amount of loot you can gain while fighting other players on PvP worlds.
We have noticed that many players on PvP worlds choose to leave some of their drops on the ground, rather than pick them up or bank them. This is because the drops are often too low in value to justify picking them up. We have, therefore, implemented two changes to the way drops work on PvP worlds:
1) Drops are now slightly more weighted towards a few, higher-value drops, rather than lots of low- or medium-value ones.
2) Overall, we have made the drops a bit more generous.
