The Fighter Torso is superior to the Obsidian Platebody[edit source]
Recently edited something you wrote on the OSRS Wiki a while back. Was curious as to why you added the part about how the obsidian platebody was superior in regards to mage-hybrid versatility, when there is virtually no scenario in which either platebody would be used? I deleted that section from the wiki page, mostly because I felt it didn’t really make sense and I also thought it would confuse newer players.
The fighter torso gives better defensive bonuses and has a higher strength bonus. Other than it being more difficult to obtain, it is vastly superior to the obsidian platebody. There is a reason why the BCP is the last melee upgrade many people make, and it is because the torso virtually fills the same role.
Just wanted to clarify why I made the edit. Hopefully you don’t mind, I appreciate all the work you do for the OSRS Wiki!

Partial kilograms (or just grams, I guess)[edit source]
You added this to the energy page:
Players should note that, while the equipment viewer appears to average out player weight to the units place (and does so by always rounding down), partial kilograms do affect energy restoration rates. Though 0.9 kg will appear identical to 0 kg when using the equipment viewer, the additional weight does indeed increase the run depletion rate appropriately.
Cabbage vs pizza/swordfish[edit source]
Do you have any data/evidence suggesting that the Defence boost from a cabbage is worth more than the additional food slot? Given what we know about how accuracy is calculated, it seems *very* unlikely from a DPS standpoint that this is preferable. ʞooɔ 13:53, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
If you read what I actually wrote, I explained at length that it was primarily only beneficial in PvP environments where concerns regarding exhausting one's entire invent is completely irrelevant, since I specifically listed that it's most useful in PvP zones basically bordering safe zones, when only engaging in 1v1 (largely risk fights), and when engaging in high risk PvP engagements where +1 or +2 extra defence levels (in addition to keeping strength level maximum potted, etc.) makes a credit difference, particularly for builds with 30 or 40+ defence (especially 50+ obviously) whilst also utilizing their full melee armor.
It's not even a fair comparison between what is essentially a miniature F2P Def pot and a lost food space, as players simply just dash into the safe zone or teleport to lumbridge to refresh their supplies.
I EVEN explained, at length, the method where you don't even actually bring any cabbages with your account out into the dangerous zone, as it's sometimes better just to pop one in the bank at the perfect timing.
So is there any specific reason why you delete my entire section when you clearly didn't read it? I'm a bit baffled.
- Hi – I read your entire section, and I was not the one who removed it. Your prose was not particularly clear (except for one point part way through the fourth paragraph, long after the cabbage-in-inventory had been introduced) that it was referring to non-depletion fights. Most of the last half of the fourth paragraph seems quite speculative/spurious, especially as it relates to the varying degree of benefit at different Defence levels.
- Regarding the overall addition: I'm generally in favor of adding this sort of niche information to the wiki, but it in this case, it was incredibly dense (it made the Cabbage article three times as long as before, and the prose was hard to follow), and it wasn't really on the right item article anyway. Another editor removed it after a fairly long discussion. I think there's room for having some semblance of this information present, but in its current form it's just too many words (and a lot of unsupported claims) for something that isn't *all* that complicated. Cheers. ʞooɔ 23:30, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
