  • Catablepon armor is a new type of armor usable by rangers at level 40 ranged and defense
  • it is made from Catablepon hide, a new 100% drop from Catablepons, they are described as cow like in the examine
  • catablepon armor is somewhat better then snakeskin armor but worse then green dragon hide armor, this armor also has severe penalties to melee stats and strength making it unsuitable for melee combat however
  • for extra effect, wearing even one piece of the armor drains the wear's strength to 0, this can not be raised by any means while wearing the armor, based off catablepon's magical strength draining attack
  • i'll leave the crafting requirements and coin cost to be tanned to the devs but ideally it would be around the crafting level and coin cost needed for snakeskin and green dhide armor
  • the weight would be around these suggestions, cowl 1.2 kg, body 7.5 kg , boots 1.4 kig, vambraces 1.9 kg, shield 8.2(uses the same wood as green d hide to make)
  • Catablepon hide and armor requires less pieces to make the armor then snakeskin armor
  • maybe to help a bit more with farming Catablepons, new spawns could be added in the wilderness and one in draynor sewers and wizard's tower basement which are fairly unused
  • ideally this armor would be usable and craftable by both f2p and p2p
  • idea is the armor is nearly as good as green d hide but have severe drawbacks making it only suitable for rangers, also gives pures in f2p an armor almost as good as green dhide without needing to complete dragon slayer.
  • I chose catablepons as they are similar to cows but magical like dragons are and i felt it fit the theme of higher level ranged armor. Also going back to "cows" before getting dragon armor seemed like a good choice
  • maybe to help balance it, players need to have a RuneScape Authenticator on their account
  • alternately if it is too strong to make like green d hide, the armor could be the strength of snake skin armor but still carry the high penalty to attack. This still lets f2p have a complete ranged armor set without making snakeskin armor f2p

Horns[edit | edit source]

  • for extra fun, maybe the horns of the catablepon can be a new common drop, but not 100%(idea is their death may have ruined the horns), maybe the highest level one has the best chance of dropping the horns
  • when players get the horns, they can with a chisel and the right crafting level chisel the horns into either arrowtips or javelin heads
  • When making these into either players depending on their skill and rng can get between 5-12 heads(the horns may not be in great shape which reduces the amount of heads you can get)
  • players can attach them to arrow shafts as usual, when made they have the +22 ranged strength like mithril arrows but have -25 strength
  • players can also make the horns into javelin heads, they can produce between 5-8 javelin heads as well based off skill and rng
  • unlike the current javelins, these javelins are the old throwing type, they have +17 ranged attack and +18 ranged strength but -25 strength, i did have an idea to make them more useful then their old style which were unpopular, they now have a range of 6 normal and 8 long, a speed of 3.0 normal and 2.4 rapid
  • the arrows and javelins can be poisoned, but have an unique feature, when used in battle, it can randomly lower a foe's strength by 5% for a time, the chance improves if you deal a max hit that does 8 or more damage, this does not stack but it does reset to -5%
  • f2p would ideally be able to use both the arrows and javelins, however since currently they can't fletch or craft them, here's a way to allow them to have them
  • Litara will once the player travels to the end of the stronghold and talks to Solztun and informs her of his death create the items for players, maybe though players need their RuneScape Authenticator on their account to have this done
  • players just need to bring the horns to her and then you can pick between the arrows or javelins, she can make randomly 5-12 arrows or 5-8 javelin heads per set of horns brought
