  1. Most interesting, especially to see some of the relationships between Zaros and his underlings. While Zamorak was interesting, the courtier and the trace of demonology (Thamarron was one of Zamorak's lieutanants and got rid of Uzer) was more so. Also that there may be more than just one of that race of fire creatures.
  2. Perhaps a more important question is; why would you even need to safespot any of them? If you're maging them at a low level, a safespot would mean you don't spend much money on prayer potions any more.
  3. You incorrectly spelled "introduction" as "intruduction". A lot of pictures could do with being updated as well as being saved as png files to avoid compression artefacts, as I'm sure you're aware the terrain of the barrows has changed as has the armour, I'm sure you'll get to that in due course. It's worth noting the possibilities of temple trekking as enough trekking can unlock fast travel from Canifis to the barrows for players who cannot start the Branches of Darkmeyer.
  4. Doric's workbench now has a wolfbane dagger. I don't recall that being in any of the patch notes...
  5. They said the quest would unlock new 90+ firemaking methods and some cosmetic reasons to train. Also, they've tried to make the skill handy in the past with shade burning, pyre logs, and cave lighting. Not much, but they have had a go.
  6. Oh by the way: with that survey, couldn't the rock/metal group be so big because many people like one but not the other? They aren't the same.
  7. Dat fake BTS...oh my. You had me bursting out with laughter frequently: very amusing, well written, and just down right enjoyable!
  8. I doubt the zarosian fortress would look like those ruins, though (our current reference is Ghorrock) and why wouldn't the citizens of edgeville use that land to build something good and useful?
  9. He'll probably get a ban if he does that, or certainly a mute from some P-mod.
  10. Most enjoyable. Trolling is fun. Even more fun when you don't have to spend time doing it yourself :) .
  11. Once you get level 60, blast furnace is a median way between profit and xp. Smith mithril arrows.
  12. I must ask, Helm_Lardar, but what did we learn from that video? That's the thing I've always been wondering. What exactly did people find out from watching it? Was it that people actually realised there was bots and Real World-Trading websites being advertised en masse all across RuneScape? That Jagex were finding it very hard to tackle all of these problems? I honestly don't think the average RuneScape player (Pretty much everyone who has logged in within the past year) find out something they didn't already know. This was just an excuse for people to [bleep] and moan even more, because it was said by a "Volunteer". If that video was a "wake-up call", some people need to get their heads checked...Because I don't know what RuneScape they've been playing, but it hasn't been the same one that I have been playing. I doubt their votes took a hit, the other games exceeded in votes due to offering their players real rewards in-game (Which would be on the same level as a Double-XP weekend for RuneScape). We were offered nothing but a "Thank you", which is fine in itself. Certainly more interesting things happened throughout the year than an attention-seeking episode on YouTube/RSOF. :thumbup: Well, I hadn't actually realised RWT and botting was quite that bad on f2p worlds. That was a big eye-opener for me. It's not that I didn't care before, it's just that I hadn't known how big the problem was.
  13. Yes the comic was poor. Not that funny, not that pleasing to look at. @Fallstar: I would argue Jiblix was a significant event, because it influenced people's opinions hugely at the time: his video got 100,000 views, tip.it had a very long thread, J-Mods had to police the RSOF regarding him, and ultimately it's plausible that some of Jagex's potential golden joystick votes were lost as a result. While not significant in the long run it mattered at the time and even (perhaps) made the bot nuke more appeasing.
  14. I've never suffered from it...generally speaking, I play more for fun and often stop training something because it's getting repetitive and dull. As a result, I still haven't ever got a 99 (but I'm not certain I need one). However, I did once get cramp in my right hand/wrist whilst playing barbarian assault. I was the collector, which means quite a few clicks, and I was temporarily (5-10 minutes) unable to make more than the odd, spasmodic, click. I think it was bad posture that did this more than anything else.
  15. If you want to check what you'll lose in the wild, you can click 'what if I entered the wilderness' on the IKOD interface.
  16. This. i'll remember 2011 because the few negatives were well outweighed by some great decisions, notable FT+W and the bot nuke. And still they managed to put out good, and consistent content.
  17. Actually, the pagan holiday you're thinking of is the celebration of the Winter Solstice. If the particular branch of paganism you're thinking of is the wiccan branch. While a christmas tree is pagan, the early church had christmas (the festival of christ's brith) at the time of the winter solstice in order to replace it. I sort-of wish that when they updated an area, the updated it completely. New everything. And didn't apply any of that stuff anywhere else until that place got updated. A case in point is the GE clerks, which weren't updated while bankers were shoehorned in from draynor. Also trees, as you say. Finally, be more bold with area updates. Change the layout of things as well as their look if you want. GE got a fountain, but edgeville's ruins could do with making sense.
  18. No vid, no proof. You're not really explaining what happened, and you won't let anyone see a video, so there's no way we can help you or even sympathise.
  19. Indeed. I'm not sure if removing the recharge cost of barrows would do anything game breaking, and I doubt the >100k per piece is going to make much of a dent in the economy. I can't really speak for high end gear though, outside of chaotics. By the time I have to charge my rapier, I've made the cost back through drops or dailies. Yes. The problem is, if I get a rapier I would love to still get money from my dailies to spend on the frivolous things I used to spend it on, like skill training etc.
  20. Good rant, and it highlights something that dissapoints me as a mid-level player: I don't want Torva armour because it would be simply too expensive for me to use normally. It would be fun, but no fun when it comes to recharge time. Barrows armour recharge is so low I don't mind: 750k/hr is something different entirely. I'm not sure what's wrong with not having recharge costs.
  21. Well, here's a few things to do. 1. Join a clan with some members in it. A nice, laid-back one. They'll be able to tell you about anything you want to know in the member's game, and also about good ways to train. (My clan did exactly that for me). 2. Browse RS Wiki, and click on anything that looks interesting. You'll get a general feel for some of the member's game. 3. When you get members, do the gnome quests. They're pretty low levelled, but they unlock spirit trees and gnome gliders, which effectively unlocks acess to the majority of member's land. Finally, for me membership allows me to have more fun. F2P is so limited that it's never a waste of money in my perspective, and in the perspective of most people around here.
  22. I should clarify: I only have 57 summoning (so an ibis) and 65 fishing. Thank you.
  23. The runescape wiki (unofficial) has a fairly reasonable description, if a tad tab-switiching full. Of note are that if you're going the right direction, you will: -Be seeing the odd key symbol and several sickle symbols. Keys are that weird black circle with lines going down. -Be going across a variety of levels and buildings.
  24. I'm currently training fishing from 65-71 and I would like to know the "best" method of training (I find fishing a bit dull and want to get it over with). Of course, best is a relative term so I'm really looking for the fastest way to go about things. However, if one method turns out to be only slightly less fast than another, but makes plenty of money, I would be happy to do that. What I mean is I wouldn't mind a bit of extra cash, even if it is inefficient. I would like to know the xp/hr for monkfish and fly fishing in shilo village, as well as if there are any other ways of training I should look at. Everyone says shilo is the go-to fishing xp place, but I'm not so sure...
  25. Rune armour. FOG rewards are degradeable, although gauntlets only degrade on death so they're worth getting. Iron is probably the best way of making money, but to be frank just getting members will be worth it as you can make money far faster then. FAR faster.
