#5227343 The Benefits of D.I.Y.?

Posted by blakdragon39 on 09 April 2012 - 09:25 PM in General Discussion

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.



#5223651 Squeal of Fortune + Buyable Spins

Posted by blakdragon39 on 04 April 2012 - 01:14 AM in General Discussion

Having the wheel use your saved info isn't the greatest idea but what companies don't save your info for you?


The thing that's wrong with this is that the account recovery system is TERRIBLE. Anyone can access your account if they know enough about your past account activity. And they should REALLY ask for confirmation. Like to enter the CVS code on the back, or something. ANYTHING. But they don't, you just click a button.



#5222882 Squeal of Fortune + Buyable Spins

Posted by blakdragon39 on 03 April 2012 - 01:52 AM in General Discussion


About children spending their parents money. I've got a great story regarding just that. When I was about 8 I got my first iPod (a 1st gen Nano) for Christmas. My mother put her credit card on iTunes, and allowed me to purchase a few songs. Well, over the course of a month, usually sneaking down at night, I'd purchase a song or two. This would lead to me purchasing another song, and another, and often entire albums, because I didn't think I'd have to pay for it. Well, come next month, I'm faced with a $2000 bill that I had to pay off. Long story short, it is a legitimate concern that children will blow their parents' money on spins.


itunes its a given that they have unlimited ability to buy shit but runescape was a surprise.

I think any kids parents who got hit with this are able to sue jagex


Also anyone whos account gets hijacked through Jagex's joke of a recovery system and gets charged for more squeal rolls can sue as well


I almost hope they get sued. :( If it's the stupid investors that are ruining this game.. It's so typical. If I ever make it big with my own company I'm NOT SELLING TO INVESTORS. They just sit there and suck the life out of it and make everything about MONEY. And it sucks. I'm unhappy.

Maybe it should be added to that announcement about credit card security (which is GREAT idea by the way) that if you do find yourself in a situation where someone buys spins for your account, to contact your credit card company? I'm pretty sure the cc company won't have any issues refunding you and charging Jagex for the mistake. If this happens enough, maybe Jagex will get some damn security in order for our accounts already. It's pathetic how bad they are at this.

I'm starting to hate how much fun I have with this game. Microtransactions in RS? I don't CARE what they say, if someone has a WHOLE bunch of money? They are ABSOLUTELY buying an advantage if they can buy 75 (times however much money they have) spins whenever they want. They're BUYING exp. And this is totally gambling, whether you actually "win" anything or not. I HOPE dicing clans start up with Jagex's new def'n of "not gambling" just to show Jagex how ridiculous they are being.

I'm not one to usually rant about what Jagex does. "If you don't like it, don't use that part of the game." But this affects EVERYONE for sure. There's no way around it. People with money can now buy an advantage in this game. Thanks Jagex.

As a point of note: I'm Canadian and my keyboard supports ALMOST EVERYTHING. I've got options for the UK, Canadian Multi-Lingual Standard, and US. US is the only one that makes sense to what I ever type. :P It used to switch itself to Canadian Multilingual standard all the time. -.- I had to disable the option to switch languages. xD /Minirant.

Wonder if this guy got logged in yet? Did he switch keyboards or something? Maybe a setting changed somewhere.



#5209782 13-Mar-2012 - Loyalty Additions and Lodestone Network

Posted by blakdragon39 on 13 March 2012 - 09:57 PM in General Discussion


A lot of people seem to be complaining about how useless teleports are now with the lodestones.. or are thinking of replacing current methods of doing things with new methods that incorporate lodestones. But it seems a lot of people are forgetting that home tele can only be used every HALF HOUR. And I teleport around a lot more than that.


Wrong.
Half hour limit was removed a good year+ ago.


.....What? Okay, I agree, this is ridiculous then. :P

It's good that they forced him to change his name. It's good that they Forced every "Kony" in RS to change their name. Seriously, S U O M I, what were you even thinking? Next time, when you change your name, think twice.


He changed his name that Joseph Kony?? Jeez, no wonder they made him change that name. What a ridiculous idea that was..



#5205434 Membership For Life

Posted by blakdragon39 on 07 March 2012 - 03:39 PM in General Discussion

They can't recover your account if they don't know the answers. People who get their accounts recovered are the same people that make RS facebook pages with their private info in plain sight. *makes recovery question my birthday, posts birthday on all available RS forums and facebook*. I made that mistake once. Made my answers real answers to the recovery questions. Thought I was safe, was recovered by a friend (this was many years ago on my original acc). If you're not stupid, you won't get hacked. If you have random answers to the questions, they have some other info from you that you let slip onto the internet.

As for the topic at hand;
I'm split on this. I like the fact that Jagex is doing more of these little contest things, but don't really like that it's the person who gets the super rare item who gets a bonus lifetime membership.


I never even thought of this.. But now that I have I think it seems unfair too. =\ Super lucky person gets even more insanely lucky? Alright I guess.



#5204854 Membership For Life

Posted by blakdragon39 on 06 March 2012 - 08:14 PM in General Discussion


Nothing but luck means everyone has the same chance of winning

Everyone ...

  • that is a paying member,
  • that spins twice per day, every day,
  • that knows about the competition on the forum, and
  • that only uses spins on 1 account
have the same chance of winning. Otherwise, you have an increased/decreased chance of winning that could, in theory, be significant.

I'm not going to fuss over it since it's not the end of all time, but do not think it's entirely "fair" just because it's "luck"-based. They don't automatically go hand-in-hand.


I had no idea this competition existed until I saw it posted on reddit. I doubt many people here regularly spend a bunch of time on the rsof. I know I don't. Definitely doesn't hurt anyone's chances to make people aware of it. :D



#5204241 Membership For Life

Posted by blakdragon39 on 06 March 2012 - 03:33 AM in General Discussion

QFC: 254-255-159-63608827

I don't know if anyone saw this. How many people will actually even WIN a skull tattoo? I'm guessing MAYBE two. Maybe. :P I think this is a ploy to get more people to sign up for members... Seems to follow the recent Jagex trend. Double the daily rolls! What do you guys think?

To elaborate: Jagex is holding a "contest." If you post in that thread wearing a skull tattoo in the next 4 weeks, you have a chance to win membership for life.



#5203100 Ardougne Crossbow Task

Posted by blakdragon39 on 04 March 2012 - 07:58 PM in Help and Advice

" Make a rune crossbow yourself, from scratch, performing each step within either Witchaven or Yanille."

From the tip.it tasks guide. You need to make the sinew in yanille on the range in the central building there :)


Ooh... But it's ARDOUGNE task diary. :( Lame. Thanks, I'll give it another try. :P

EDIT: Worked, done task now. Thanks guys. :P



#5203094 Ardougne Crossbow Task

Posted by blakdragon39 on 04 March 2012 - 07:54 PM in Help and Advice

Okay, I did these steps, TWICE, and the task never got finished:

Killed a bear for meat. Made it into sinew in Ardougne on a range. Ran to Witchaven to craft the sinew into a crossbow string. The first time, I crafted the yew stock in witchaven too. The second time I crafted the yew stock in Ardougne. Then I tele'd to Yanille, boosted my smithing one level with Dwarven Stout to make rune crossbow limbs. Then I put the limbs on stock, and strung the crossbow. But the task NEVER finished. Whats going on??

#5202304 Skilling Outfit

Posted by blakdragon39 on 03 March 2012 - 06:46 PM in Help and Advice

I've just got my first 99, Constitution! But my skilling outfit totally doesn't match it, so I need a new one. It's untrimmed for now, and probably for the next long while. I want to wear my white chompy hat with it, that's all I know for sure. Need some red/white skilling outfit ideas!



#5199738 Tattoo general

Posted by blakdragon39 on 29 February 2012 - 05:40 AM in Off-Topic

I have a tattoo of a... black dragon. :P I can't seem to get a good picture with my phone, and I can't find the cord for my camera anywhere, so I can't post a very good pic. I took this shortly after I got it:



Runescape was actually the first place I used my name, Blakdragon39. Ever since then, I've used it EVERYWHERE. It's become sort of an alter ego to me I guess. And I've always liked dragons. :P Had the idea bouncing around in my head for a couple years, and some people got together last year and bought it for me for my birthday. ^^ Definitely happy with it.



#5199539 Black Demons

Posted by blakdragon39 on 29 February 2012 - 12:13 AM in Help and Advice

RSwiki is almost always inaccurate if not outright wrong on these things. Personally I think it's likely black demons are only weak to magic (and holy water, darklight etc. but those are so weak).


Care to provide proof? =\ If this is true, I'll take it less seriously in future. But if this is just a personal opinion, I'll probably keep referring to RSWiki in future.



#5199463 Black Demons

Posted by blakdragon39 on 28 February 2012 - 10:42 PM in Help and Advice

http://runescape.wik...iki/Black_demon

According to this page, they're weak to slash, not stab. And I used to hally them with stab all the time, because it trained controlled. But I tried hallying them with slash, and I feel like it was definitely better. I feel like RSWiki is pretty accurate..



#5199077 28-Feb-2012 - Squeal of Fortune

Posted by blakdragon39 on 28 February 2012 - 04:37 PM in General Discussion

Sounds like a bunch of madness. This isn't a Casino. Why should you even get Godswords just from 1 click...

More of my opinions when I can actually log into the bloody game...

Edit: Oh looks like the number of people logged in is slowly dwindling, another 2 hours of server crashes incoming most likely


Agreed.. I actually think this is kind of stupid. I mean cool, free exp and gp's but... why?



#5199060 28-Feb-2012 - Squeal of Fortune

Posted by blakdragon39 on 28 February 2012 - 04:31 PM in General Discussion


anyone else having screen freezing issues when logging on?


yep, after 5 minutes it said there was a server error


So umm.. how did they miss this glaring issue in testing? :P



#5199049 28-Feb-2012 - Squeal of Fortune

Posted by blakdragon39 on 28 February 2012 - 04:29 PM in General Discussion

The "clicked" cross when not clicking on an active object is now slightly green-tinged to differentiate it totally from the red cross.

Someone's adamant about this change. I really wonder why :rolleyes:


I can't log in for some reason, so I haven't seen this yet. But why did they change the click cross in the first place? What a pointless thing to change. It was perfectly fine before. After changing it, it was hard to tell when you successfully clicked on something, compared to when you didn't. If I could get logged in, I'd love to see this new green-tinged one. :S



#5194234 Grifolapine task

Posted by blakdragon39 on 21 February 2012 - 06:00 PM in Help and Advice

Great, thanks guys. This covers everything I needed to know! I've blocked just grifolapines for now.



#5193673 Grifolapine task

Posted by blakdragon39 on 21 February 2012 - 04:38 AM in Help and Advice

It blocks all ganodermic creatures?? That seems silly. :( Oh well, maybe I'll skip them then. Which ones are worth doing?



#5193650 Grifolapine task

Posted by blakdragon39 on 21 February 2012 - 04:17 AM in Help and Advice

I've got a polypore dungeon task for the first time, and am a little lost on how I should do it! I went and tried it out for a bit. Was using fire wave I think. Didn't find it to be my favourite task..

What's the best way to kill them? Should I be praying, or just eating, or something else? Are they worth all the time and runes? I'm considering blocking them if they don't even drop anything that great.



#5188360 Effigy nerf

Posted by blakdragon39 on 16 February 2012 - 06:29 PM in General Discussion

I really wish they had just lowered the drop rate. I can only do 2 effigies on my own.. 91 cooking, and 93/91 mining. What am I supposed to do with any other effigies now? I have a 91 con effigy stuck in my bank, can't find anyone to assist me with it. =\ This update really only effects the people who CAN'T do all the effigies, which AREN'T the people who were using them to gain stupid amounts of exp in RC and other slow skills right? Seems like a REALLY bad way to deal with the problem. :(
