  1. Actually, if you think about it, since merchanting is a 0 gain activity, it doesn't overall benefit or hurt anyone, as in the monetary gain by some is compensated by the loss by the others. The fact that the ge is sometimes clogged up is because of bad design not merchanting, so it can't be put down to merchants. I'm also not talking about price manipulation here in regards to merchanting as that purely relies on the street market(which is a clear design fault by jagex) but rather investing and flipping, which actually help the ge work better.

     

    If you are talking about investing and flipping, then most people have their value go along with the inflation rate in rs. I personally keep most of my money on commodities that are always on demand and that I can also use to level my skills, like pure ess, coal etc... In regards to merchenting clans, all of them are scams where the leaders get rich and those on the bottom get scammed badly.

  2. Really, but if you think if it that way, every newb you see alching is also ruining the game for the others, as any additional gp devalues the previous gp. Face it, merchanting is a completely normal part of the game and in fact real life- after all, most of the people living in developed countries make their living out of thin air, as in, they don't actually produce anything. Why can't this also be normal in an internet game?

     

    When people invest money in stocks and the likes, they are lending their money to a company in the hopes that the company is profitable and they in turn get paid dividends. The investors know they have a chance that they could lose some money. What you are talking about are pyramidal scams, where you tell people to pay you money to start a soap selling business. And to be profitable they have to in turn sell the same idea to other gullible investors.

  3. Also you can look at merchanting as a pyramid scheme- you gradually make yourself toward the top, losing money as you start out and gaining money once you are near the top, and there will always be players starting out from the bottom.

     

    Bingo! You just made Pulli's point :-) Pyramid schemes are run by scammers and are illegal.

    So is stealing and murdering, y'know? <_<

     

    Thieveing is a skill that brings a minimal amount of gp into the game. Those who pk or go on pk world know what the risks are. Merchenting just messes up the economy for the benefit of the few over the masses.

    Erm, because thieving brings money into the game and player killers(or even monster killers, actually) know the risks, it isn't ''illegal'' in runescape, but merchanting is still illegal because it it overall doesn't benefit, or more to the point, hurt, anyone?

     

    Yes, pyramid schemes are illegal in real life, but so is murdering and stealing, which are completely normal in runescape, so why shouldn't pyramid schemes be normal in runescape?

     

    Pyramid schemes are unfortunately completely normal in runescape. It is false to say it doesn't benefit or hurt anyone, it hurts gameplay. When you want to buy or sell an item sometimes you cannot do so for days because of market manipulation, and also the already stated stealing a gp here and there from other players. Merchenting is a must do for players who don't have play enough hours to keep their current cash pile above inflation.

  5. Maybe its because you have low skills that they dont take you. I dont know what your skill levels are but u did say you dont skill a lot. If your p2p w117 is the best place for dungeoneering. I have lower dun lv then you and still get accepted by most groups. I find it ridiculous that some people ask 90 dun and higher at some point it takes then forever to find someone that lv and looking to do their floor.

  6. but does it act only like another to-location tablet? If I had my house at Taverly and I directed my tablet to Relleka I wouldn't be able to enter my house wouldn't I? Also does it also work work with teleport into house option?

     

    Only the regular home tele tab teleports you to your house. The other modified home tele tabs teles you to other house portals, but you can't go into your house from those locations

  7. I'm not sure how this thing works. It seems that it act as a teleport to the 6 house portal location...so does this mean you won't be able to teleport into the house directly instead with a chipped one? Also it used to be you can only enter your house at your chosen location, does this tablet change anything with respect to that? If it does I would expect I can enter the house at any of the 6 portal.

     

    After the quest, you need to use a chisel on a home tele tab and specify the location.

  8. Before you go training to 99, be sure to get them all atleast 90, or even 85 so when you do get to 99 you aren't left with significantly lower levels. As to which one, its all preference, but personally I would go for 99 defence.

     

    Your defense lv should trail your att and str. Reason being defense does not help you hit harder or more accurately.

  9. what are you planning to use the boots and gloves for?

     

    prayer bonus and looks but i still would like to buy then from the armory and having the rank would be useful if im in a rush and dont have time to wait around for someone else to buy the armor if i need it.

     

    I'm hope that you are mainly getting it for the looks because from experience its really not great for combat.

  10. I was told you can buy it off the ge and that the ranks allows u to buy directly form the white knights.
    you can and they do however things like the gloves and boots are capped making it nearly impossible to buy them off the G.E

     

    Then get someone with the rank to buy it for you.

  11. Normally, I would never ever complain about any updates, I accept them as they come. This skill is just terrible compare to any other that has ever came out. Besides the points already mentionned, I also don't like the fact you get all the xp at the end. The dungeon can take a long time to solo, you get disconnected, bye bye all the xp. The update that appear earlier in the day had the same effect as a disconnection. So personally, i'm hoping they will improve the skill before I max all the other skills.

  12. Greens are only good if you can go at a very quiet time. Otherwise you waste all your time fighting over kills.

     

    At very high levels (maxed combat or close) bronze dragons are the fastest, except maybe using a cannon somewhere.

     

    I disagree. I win every kill in the CT, so those beat bronze drags easily.

     

    Thats probably because you have max comb.
