  1. Well, I logged into 'Runescape' and oh my, how much everything has changed, including the internet itself. Anyone got any tips for getting started in Runescape 3 these days? I've got myself a 15 year veteran cape from my old pal Hans in Lumbridge but everything is so different and it seems its not as popular as it once was.
  2. Started in 2006 as a labourer/technical assistant working probably 25 saturdays a year, until I finished high school in 2009, bought my first car in the same year. In 2010 I got a full time apprenticeship as an apprentice motor mechanic at a Honda dealership but left after 6 months as I was fighting with one of the other mechanics there who didn't like me too much for some reason, he would start fights with me and I would end them LOL. August 2010, I trade changed to apprentice auto electrician, thats what I'm doing now, I've got until August 2014 until I'm qualified, then I'm going to move on and do something else, wouldn't mind trying to get a job at Ford Australia. I specifically work on emergency vehicles in particular, ambulances mostly, its boring, just want to GTFO. I'm still doing the technical assistant thing but I'm considering dropping it soon.
  3. No idea, I've come back again to see whats happening, there was a TONNE of bots in the last 2 years, that kinda killed it for me.
  4. Just like to mention a little thing I've noticed is it seems they've changed the drop rate of herbs on Chaos Druids? They used to just about drop herbs every drop, now they drop a lot of robes and ocasionally a herb or two, has anyone else noticed this? Last time I played and did this would have been around 2010 though.
  5. How can you not see the bot problem? When I played lfor a few weeks maybe a year or two ago, in the edgeville dungeon where the Chaos Druids are, I was down there killing them for herbs, and there where a bunch of bots, running in the same path, same delay in picking up dropped items, with similar names.
  6. Hey guys, I'm Damo, I used to play Runescape a long time ago, I stopped playing around when they originally removed free trade and the wilderness in 2007 I think it was, I played maybe 1 or 2 weeks here and there over the last few years but nothing serious. I checked out the website today and its peaked my interest, does it still have a serious problem with bots? Last year or so there where bots everywhere. What new has happened? I'm looking to get back into it until at least Guild Wars 2 comes out.
  7. Sweet, thanks much guys. Also where I'm at it, where can I plant these bad boys? I've seen a fruit tree patch in catherby but thats it.
  8. Hey guys, if you plant and grow an apple tree, does it produce "cooking apples" which you can use in pies? Thanks much.
  9. Unless you are like me and you only know how to make money by skilling, when you go to the GE with your fish, you get 2 buttons, a piece of string and some vaseline for 1000 lobbies.
  10. Yes we do have a cane toad problem, lol but thats only in Queensland. I think its to do with how expensive bandwidth costs in Australia, they might have gone with the cheapest option. I remember al ong time ago when Aussie servers first came out, they said something about the cost was prohibitive because they could pay for 6 servers for every 1 located in Australia, or something like that. They should get Telstra or Internode to host their server for them, Australia's two biggest ISPs.
  11. Yes, you get spikes where the whole server seems to stop for about 3 seconds, then everything starts moving again. I get about 25-30 ping to them in the server list. I reckon its to do with server load, maybe Jagex couldn't afford to get a high end server here in Australia and it can't handle whats going on.
  12. I agree, I'm an Aussie and I keep getting regular lag spikes on the Australian servers, not a problem with my internet connection either, I'm on ADSL2+ and close to the exchange. You can really notice it trying to put in your bank pin as well.
  13. Thought I'd update, I stopped playing not long after I made that post, now I'm back again haha. I'm on 62 smithing now, with the freeplay party room, can I chuck noted items in there and it will distribute them through all the baloons? Or will it chuck all the notes in one baloon? I've got LOTS of mith items I plan on throwing into the party room, current evaluation is just shy of 1 millions worth.
  14. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1mEqPEd8Mg Some light entertainment of the chaos druid botters, they had a much more distinctive pattern before I left the first time, but its pretty easy to guess who they are. Just out of curiosity, can I lure that black demon out near the gate? I managed to get the bots trapped behind it if i lure out a chaos druid.
  15. I'm at the choas druids in Edgevil wilderness dungeon and no crap, theres me there and about 6 botters, you can tell they are all botters too, they have similar names, all no iteming or three iteming, they all run around in the same pattern and have the same delayed reaction. I stopped playing "260 days ago" from not playing for about 2 years before then and I've never seen it so rampant and bad?
  16. Thanks for the warm welcome and the reply, so far I've mined 1000 coal and i'm starting to mine some mith, what I'm doing is smelting the ores into mith bars, then turning them into various mith weapons/armor for exp, then I'll give them away to new players on a free world once I'm done :) Its not fast but its fun and friendly.
  17. Powermining Granite/Sandstone or even Iron; at your level is one of the faster levelers. Smithing; until you get used to the Blast Furnace; is a pretty big money eater. So you might want to rough it out or just start learning how to use the Blast Furnace. Gnome/Brimhaven Agility course until 35. Do the Barbarian Barcrawl Mini-Quest then hit the Barbarian Arena until 52 and start the Wilderness until 75. Progress onwards from there at the Ape Atoll until you hit your designated level. Or you know.. Stop when you feel like it :P The economy of Runescape is... Lets say.. In a particularly bad shape. Why not Fish your own and simultaneously raise your Fishing level? If you have a lot of Anti Fire Potions you may want to consider maging metal Dragons with Fire Bolt/Blast with Chaos Gauntlets from the "Family Crest" quest. That is a combat way and i guess is less tedious/dangerous instead of Bursting Rock Lobsters. I hope i helped a little bit.. But half of these topics aren't my strong points and im sure there are other people who are nothing short of experts in those subjects on. Thanks much, Yeah I wondered about the lobbies taking ages to sell because I'm the one trying to sell them haha. Thanks for the advice, if anyone else oculd have some input, that would be awesome.
  18. Hey guys, I started playing Runescape in 2002/03 and joined this forum in 2004 (Holy crap, 5 years ago), anyways I stopped playing early 2007 and have just started playing again. Wow everything has changed so much, anyways I've got a few questions I wouldn't mind getting answered: I'm after a good way on how to level up mining and smithing to around 70 each. I really hate levelling agility, and I need it to do a lot of quests, I'm currently level 32 agility, I'm thinking of doing all the easy achievement diarys and using the exp rewards on agility, is that a good idea? Whats the deal with raw lobbies taking ages to sell on the GE? I'm level 66 mage, I'd like to train it via combat to level it up, where should I train at and what spell should I use? Thanks much.
  19. My first accounts where: Uga Booga Bo and Poochu Uga Booga Bo is banned, i made it way back in RSC, got banned in RS2 when it was just out of beta stage.
  20. that musn't be true because i burn lobbies at 72 cooking
  21. Awesome guide, its a great way to make money. Thanks :)
  22. Bad idea, the wilderness is supposed to be dangerous to all. Not just pkers.
  23. Hey guys i'm just wondering if i would be able to kill bronze dragons at my level? My stats are in my sig. I'll be there for the rune drops and maybe dragon legs/med/skirt.
  24. I'm telegrabbing wines rather than fishing sharks. If sharks have the same "catch" rate as the zammy wines than there is really no point?
