  1. If I had the money I'd replace the Bandos with Torva, but here is my melee setup.


    Slayer Helmet, Helm of Nez

    Fury, or Glory

    Bandos Chestplate, or Fighter's Torso, or barrows armour

    Bandos Tasset, or verac's skiirt

    (Barrows) Gloves

    Chaotic Rapier(I don't have this yet personally, but I'm working towards it, for now I use the wined whip.)

    Fire Cape

    Bersker's Ring(Onyx Ring(i) might be better, I'm not willing to invest the time though)

    Dragon Defender(Dragonfire Shield could be better for some situations)

    I'd probably use the Reverence Aura, it's up to you though.


    There could be something better, but this with Extremes is usually great.

  2. I've got around 50m, or at least it was 50m, worth of torstol herbs/seeds. Obviously the prices were dropped because of bxpw, but I hear a new minigame, or maybe a new reward for an old one(I haven't really played in a few weeks), makes torstol seeds easy to come by. I could use some information on the minigame, or some speculation on whether torstols will go back up.


  3. I never really quit, but Runescape is so low on my list of priorities at times that I often go weeks, even months, without playing, especially during the school year.


    Also, on the topic of playing and going to college: It can easily be done, since college, or at least my college, is about twelve-fifteen in class hours, which requires about thirty hours of studying for a high GPA, assuming you study quickly. That's only two to three hours in class per day, and maybe four hours of studying. You can knock that out by three pm with ease and then do anything you want for the rest of the day. Of course, if you want to be social, you have to play less.

  4. It seems like they're pushing classic, even though they're closing. Maybe they think it'll draw more players in to paying for membership.


    As for the classic cape, I'm not too bothered. The item has no stats(as I recall), plus it's not like it was difficult to get before. I signed up for classic during one of the openings a couple years ago and I can surely get the cape. It should be that only veteran players who've had classic accounts since version two was released get a cape, but they can't take that direction now.

  5. Assuming Jagex were to go under, which is unlikely but surely possible: what would be the fate of the game? I've been pondering it in my head a bit, and concluded that the game itself would continue, perhaps without updates or support, most likely.

  6. It was a more difficult game when I started, but obviously we all knew the game was going to slowly but surely get easier. There is nothing wrong with the natural progression of updates, but I disagree with the idea of "bonus" experience from events. I do like Distractions and Diversions, which normally give healthy amounts of experience periodically.


    Obviously, this doesn't hold true for everyone; but, I don't mind getting larger exp/hr rations. I'm getting to the point where all my levels are getting close to 99 (save a few skills) and the amount of time my goal takes is astronomical. That isn't to say I want to see huge margins of experience rate gains in future updates, but slowly, it isn't a bad thing.

  7. And he doesn't have to like or agree with Jagex to hold a position for helping people, the community, and the game itself.


    ... which brings us to the gist of the problem. Whilst according to you - and many others, self included - he doesn't HAVE to agree with Jagex apparently they feel he DOES. Everywhere. Always.


    They would've been better off ignoring the video rather than drawing further attention to it by their action.

    That is the great irony involved here.


    It bears mentioning that Jagex may not have demodded him for the video, it might have been something else. Or he might have requested to be demodded. Fact was that it occurred in such a short timeframe after the video was posted that people associated one with the other, thereby making him a martyr. The video is now viral and overall this is a PR nightmare for Jagex. If they had just let the video be, it wouldn't have garnished that much attention.


    Exactly. Unfortunately it seems Jagex is being run by mostly aggressive go-getters type business people who wouldn't stop to think about those sorts of ramifications. I've seen the same shortcomings within the company for awhile, especially surrounding all these bonus experience gimmicks. They'll eventually drive the company into the ground with cheap tricks and a lack of useful game content. The only reason the company didn't crash and burn years ago is because the product is unique. The current Jagex has very little to do with keeping players in the game, or even attracting new ones.

  8. You can easily make 2k pots/h

    The amount will be lower if you don't pay enough attention,

    but I think you can stay focused for couple hours when getting the 2.7x bonus.


    Thanks. Normally I operate ~5% under efficiency during late hours, however, during the event I'm going to be fully involved. Assume less than 1% under maximum speed.

  9. I would do Runecrafting, but I feel like a 1.1 charm value is worth taking advantage of, since I don't want to spend anymore time slaying for 99 then I have to.


    Well then what you have planned will be your best setup. Heard any news of when double xp weekend is?


    Sometime around Labour Day I hear.


    it sounds great- make sure you have a bell pull and the house set up for whatever trainin method you want for con. :)


    Yea. I'm pretty familiar with all the methods I plan to use and can easily keep near max experience rates throughout the weekend.

  10. I've got no problem with inefficiency and playing how you like, but really you'd think with 29m slayer xp she'd know dfs is useless for slayer, its like she uses crappy gear on purpose? Nothing against her, everyone can play however they enjoy the game I just don't understand why she slays like that lol


    I think maybe she does it for looks, but I honestly have no clue. Either way I respect her less serious style of play.


    Using less efficient gear for gaining only 99 is one thing, going past 99 with efficient gear really shows a gap in exp gains. I kinda like a little bit of style over usefulness though. :shades:

  11. I'm planning to gain 99 herblore over the bonus experience weekend. I just want to verify a few things:


    1. Potions per hour: I was thinking 1900 but I could be off.


    2. My plan to was to make 2,000 of each extreme and then make overloads until I'm 99. I'll get more than the 13m exp doing that(14.4m or something with the multiplier assuming 1900 pots per hour). I may just use the extreme attacks/strengths I have for overloads so I don't go too far over.


    3. Any recommendations for the rest of the weekend? I was going to gain 90 Construction with Mahogany planks(from 85), and then train crafting to 90 and then do Summoning when it drops down to 1.1, then agility with any left over time. Also if I can, a farm run as soon as the event starts. If that's not the most efficient order or skills to train, offer suggestions please.
