While looking at guides for various things, and talking to some players, I hear a lot about D.I.Y. in Runescape. For instance, players making their own rune armor or gathering there own 2nd ingredients for Herblore. I never understood this because the way I look at it, gathering your own 2nd ingredients can maybe net you 200-400k per hour profit if you sold them, whereas there are many ways to make 3x, 4x even 5x and more that amount by doing various other things..
So what are the benefits of "doing it yourself?" Besides the bs about "the joy of accomplishing it on your own or whatever" because making the money and buying the supplies and still having 600k seems like a much better "accomplishment" to me..
Yeah, to YOU. Not everyone has the same opinions as you, as you can clearly see by some of the replies on this thread. People do what's fun in this game. Some people think efficiency is really fun. Some people think taking things easy and doing things themselves is fun. No need to call bs on something just because you don't agree.
