Thing is, I'm on 150x because of drops and gameplay, I've done the skilling grind in the actual game several times over, and countless private servers but I play here for the semi realistic droptables. Don't feel the need to invest time into skilling that I could invest into grinding bosses. It's not a huge deal to me that I need to train slayer for a week or two to unlock everything because of the style of player that I am, but I just mean to a typical player who starts at quick exprate for the easymode private server feel grinding out 400m exp in a skill just to unlock a few rings is a bit silly.
Also on 400 points on your exprate being similar to nmz, I don't know what your exprate is, but assuming it's probably around x10 that is a very small percentage of the playerbase that chooses to play at that level. The upgrades (Excluding the imbued slayer helmet, which is huge) are not all that impactful and a 1000 point barrier to them is a big put off to less serious players. You need a total of 6050 points currently for what I would consider the bare minimum being slayer helmet i, superiors, and imbued berserker, archer, and seers rings with crystal hally. That's a shitload of points.
