Participants said there was sufficient DPS equipment but not enough tank gear, so buy RS gold had been narrowed down to only 1 armor collection. And when they were just going to use one group, Jagex figured they might also create a new one based on the armor worn by the raid's big bad.

"We thought changing it up a bit made sense," West says,"but players weren't quite on board with the original proposal we shared stream. And then, well, Reddit went wild."The memes came out hard and fast. Others thought the new armor didn't look tanky enough and liberally provided a few alternatives, with some calling for a more extreme redesign.

It got so bad that a few players began to seriously feel that a meme that the upgraded armor was by another artist, and that the artist that made the prototypes had abandoned Jagex. But something amazing happened. Even as memes blotted out the sun, slowly but certainly severe suggestions started to shine through.

It began with primitive Photoshop jobs, but shortly appropriate examples and fan art began to crop up. Players rallied around the idea of a bulkier, blessed armor set motivated by the Runescape god Saradomin, so they went back to West's prototype designs and made a few adjustments.

And then, a hero emerged: legend_arts, a talented and well-known Runescape fan artist. Driven from the memes and inspired by elements of West's designs along with other players' ideas, legend_arts made a hybrid armor layout so good it not only silenced the memes, it got the attention of West himself.
