  1. It's a complete shambles at the moment, these weener whackers are actively going out of their way to ruin a lot of peoples leisure activity. I'm not talking about the no-lifing RS'ers (they probably need a break), I'm talking about people like me, who work hard all day & come home to play RS for a couple of hours in the evening. RS is used as my personal chill-out time, giving me a much needed ability to de-stress from work pressures - hence I still play the game. I guess I'll just have to go & beat the kids...............................(joke!!)
  2. Leik, you Star !!! This begs another question - Why was my action bar unlocked !!! I was asked to send my action bar to a friend the other day, perhaps this triggered it. Anyway solved :)
  3. Any idea how I get rid of the incredibly large 'description' that now appears whenever I go to click an ability on my bar? I've not chnaged any settings, but for some random reason every so often I get this ? I prefer to use the mouse to click abilities & as such the 'hovering' description is now a pain in the rear end. # Any help on how to remove would be gratefully received !!!
  4. Is that a 439 poison hit? Yes, I think they buffed the poison damage.
  5. Its official, I'm the 226th Strongest Player in RS :) Now for Mage, Range, Attack & Defence :)
  6. Goodbye rhino's, hello Ava's.......... Now, if only my Ava could carry things for me as well :)
  7. I'm still slaying, just another 90m to go...........
  8. NIS Leviathan Ring 5.0m Sold overnight - guess i got lucky :)
  9. Duo appears to be glitched - Freedom not working :(
  10. I can't justify wasting 200k gp on instance every time - could be the biggest cash sink in game !!! No chance of getting into lair normally.
  11. In case you find it hard to read the OP. Araxxor, Twitch Integration and Lobby UpdateAraxxor is here, and he can't wait to tear you limb from limb in a solo or duo boss battle to the death! When we polled the sort of boss content you wanted earlier this year, the message was clear: there's nothing you like more than grappling with a beefy combat boss. Araxxor won't disappoint, as you choose your route through his lair, dodge hazards, and finally face the beast himself - on your terms. There are regularly shifting layouts to the lair, and loads of amazing rewards - including level 90 two-handed weapons and creepily cute spider pets. We've also integrated Twitch streaming into RuneScape, and spruced up the lobby. Read on to find out more, or log in now and head south-east of Port Phasmatys to the Araxyte Hive. Getting StartedGet to Araxxor's home by heading south along the eastern coast of Morytania from Port Phasmatys. Once you're there, enter the Araxyte Hive and you'll find a webbed-over entrance to the boss-fight area. Click on it, and you'll have the option to enter a non-instanced version, or to create/join an instance. You can also limit the instance to just one person, if you wish, or set a pass number to restrict access. Note that only one person can enter the non-instanced version at a time, per world. While there are no hard requirements to enter the lair (except any imposed when starting an instance) it's strongly recommended that you have at least level 90 in each of your combat stats, and the best gear that gold can buy. The FightAs you battle Araxxor, you'll need to lure him through various areas of the Araxyte Hive. There are several routes to choose from - of which only some will available, changing every few days - and Araxxor will have different abilities depending on which route you take. Araxxor's encounter is in your control - it's up to you how you choose to engage him. Moving through the paths and dealing with his mechanics will influence the difficulty and how the fight plays out. Experiment, and find your preferred spider-wrangling strategy. There's no keeping a big spider down, either - each time you defeat Araxxor, he'll come back bigger, badder and angrier than before, for the rest of that day. As such, defeating him several times in succession will become gradually harder. The difficulty resets at 01:00 BST. It'll also become significantly more difficult if you bring a friend - he'll be tougher, and his attacks will hit far harder. You'll need tight-knit teamwork to survive Araxxor's onslaught. RewardsFirst among the amazing rewards on offer are level 90 two-handed weapons for all three combat styles: the noxious scythe, noxious longbow and noxious staff. These monstrous tools of destruction are the finest of their kind and come with new special attacks - they look spectacular, too. You'll put them together by combining a spider's leg, plus one of three arachnid body parts received as rare drops. There's a terrifyingly cute spider pet too, also obtainable as a rare drop. Once you have it, you can unlock new versions the spider as well, by completing special achievements while fighting Araxxor solo. Click on the cocooned corpse outside Araxxor's lair to find out more. Both of these are part of a lucrative drop table - designed to be more rewarding even than the QBD. Taking down Araxxor is no mean feat, but it's certainly worth your while. Note that if you're fighting as a pair, you'll each get your own loot. There is no competition over drops. Enjoy!We can't wait to see you face Araxxor. To give you a chance to tackle him on your own, our wiki will include no detailed information on Araxxor's mechanics until the 11th of August 2014. Fight hard, and join the discussion on the forums. Mod Chris L and the RuneScape Team Twitch IntegrationWith the release of Araxxor, we've integrated Twitch streaming into the RuneScape interface. With a click of a button, you can now broadcast your RuneScape experience on Twitch.tv, with no need to run anything else in the background. First, you'll need a Twitch account. Set one up - if you haven't already - and log into it via the Twitch tab in the Community interface. Then enter a stream title, select your stream resolution and bandwidth cap, decide whether you want a microphone and/or webcam enabled and you're good to go. The interface also allows you to quickly open the most popular RuneScape Twitch streams, and a new moveable window lets you chat with your own Twitch viewers while you stream. Be careful not to push your streaming settings too high for your connection and computer to handle. Try lowering your graphics settings and resolution if you have trouble. For help getting started, take a look at our video guide: Start streaming now, and have fun! Mod Drew and the RuneScape Team Lobby RefreshThe RuneScape lobby has received a fresh lick of paint this week. Firstly we've brought its visual style in line with the rest of the RuneScape website. It's bigger, clearer and more readable than ever before, with essential functions easily accessible. You can also nominate an additional favourite world. On log-in, you'll land on a 'welcome' screen, where you'll be presented with the latest and greatest RuneScape content - handy if you've been away from the game for a time. Let us know how you get on with the new, spruced up lobby system over on the forums. Mod Roy and the RuneScape Team In Other NewsRuneFest tickets are now on sale.

  13. Boss Timer, Kill Counts and Legacy Mode Fixes Our deadly Ninja Team are hard at work on an awesome PvM update, where Death himself will offer Slayer-like tasks to take down some of Gielinor's toughest bosses. This week we've introduced the first parts of this update. There's an in-game timer to show how quickly you prevail during instanced boss fights, and we're starting to track kill counts of relevant beasties, which will be viewable in an interface once the main update hits the game. We've also released a batch of updates to Legacy Mode and the accompanying EoC improvements, in response to the feedback you've given us so far. Read on for more information, or log into RuneScape now. Boss TimersUpon entering an instanced boss fight, you'll now see a new, movable boss timer element in the interface. This will remain and keep counting up for as long as it takes the instanced boss to be defeated, and will announce the kill time in your chat box when it falls. Note that the timer will not appear if more than a certain number of players are in the instance. This differs, depending on the boss: Giant Mole - 1TzTok-Jad - 1Queen Black Dragon - 1Zilyana - 1Graardor - 1Kree'arra - 1K'ril Tsutsaroth - 1Har-Aken - 1Legiones - 2Araxxor - 2Kalphite King - 3Nex - 3Barrows: Rise of the Six - 4Vorago - 7 Kill CountsToday, we've also added kill tracking of bosses and certain slayer monsters - listed below. You won't be able to see how many you've defeated until the full update arrives, but you can start racking up kills. Your boss kill count will affect certain reward unlocks in the future - get a head start now!

  14. I'll follow this with interest - wish I'd made a blog of my journey but too late now. Good luck :)
  15. I was so pleased to finally get this that I forgot to screenie. If anyone is interested, it took me 2957 Tasks (since Smoking Kills was launched & I was 88 Slayer at that time) Charm Count: Blues 14689 Crims 71942 Green 38532 **imp eats these Gold 36692 **imp eats these as well I will still keep slaying, 6.4m to go to 200m Str & then will Mage & Range Slay to get both of those to Lvl120.
  16. You wait till the Black Rhino's come out as well !!!!
  17. you mean the 2.2% crit wasn't a moderate combat bonus to those hunting motherlode shards on slayer tasks? Why I never... Most of my slaying involves Demonhorn Necklace & Bonecrusher - so, in that respect, I agree with Yoko that it is slighly biased towards skillers. Bearing in mind I've got less than 4m xp to go for my 120 Slayer Cape I'm not changing how I slay to max the production of motherlode shards.
  18. Is there a fix for this - my graphics have been screwed since the update. The only was I can get round it is to switch between classic & Eoc modes, that works until I world hop etc !!
  19. Hmmmm, I got 75 Springs on Treasure Hunter the other day & hadn't got a clue what they did. Now I know (sort of !!)
  20. World 138. I'm assuming you meant 7.00pm Dutch Time, if so Gratz on the Comp. I've just been to both places & no-one there :(
  21. Thought the 96k Elite one I just did was bad - that sir takes the biscuit :)
  22. What about doing the events on a Sunday evening - same time? I can't make the Saturday events & I'm sure I am not alone in this. Just a thought for next time.
