  1. Gambling is bad but carving each other up with swords is just peachy? There's a whole skill devoted to stealing things, an almost unlimited supply of beer, wine and spirits and the use of performance enhancing 'potions' is actively encouraged. And you're worried about people gambling with runescape gp? Get your head out of your rectum mate.
  2. I'm male, with a female character. My character is not me, I am not my character. If I'm going to stare at the backside of a cartoon character for two hours, I want it to be a nice-looking one.
  3. Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ... no wait... hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha .. .almost there... hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Ah... No more arrogant twits coming up to me when I'm peacefully mining, fishing, farming or otherwise minding my own business and saying "Stake me nub 500k my rules" If you enjoy duelling, then duel for the enjoyment of it. If you rely on staking to make money by taking advantage of people then sucked in.
  4. So you deny the low-levelled miners the ability to sell to you at a reasonable price, forcing them out of the market, then you complain when you have to go to the only ones you've left in the market? Do us all a favour and go play on the road.
  5. I fail to see how spending 12 hours a week playing runescape is in any way different to spending 12 hours a week reading comic books, building model aircraft, collecting stamps, playing the guitar, writing short stories or any of the thousand other hobbies someone might have. From what I remember of being 15 we had school for around six and a half hours a day, five days a week, probably an hour or two homework on top of that - so say 8 hours out of five of seven days taken up by school. Spent maybe 8 hours sleeping. Which leaves around about 72 hours of leisure time per week. Take 12 out of that to play runescape and you've still got 60 hours to read a book, kick a football, go see a movie with friends etc, etc, etc. Seems like this is a fairly normal sort of kid who's parents actually don't have a clue what he does, and a journalist looking to fill some column inches with nothing.
  6. The responsibility lies squarely on the shoulders of the parents. Don't like the fact that your kids are your responsibility... that's easy, keep your zipper done up. A tobacco company could 'advertise to children' - it's still my responsibility to my children to monitor the television they watch, and - should they see an advertisement for something I disapprove of, educate them as to why its not a good idea. I'm not really sure how you think a tobacco company could "make it possible" to smoke in schools. Whether or not smoking is allowed in a school or not should be an issue for the school... last time I checked, the tobacco companies didn't own any schools, but if they did, and they allowed smoking in them, then it's still my right and responsibility as a parent to find out about the smoking policy of a school before I decide whether or not to send my children there. Likewise with the books and free cigarettes, what my children obtain is my responsibility to filter - not the tobacco companies, not the government, not the community. Any prospective parent who feel that anyone but themselves should bear any responsibility for the upbringing of their children other than themselves and their partner needs to make an appointment with a vasectomy clinic right away. - Father of two very happy, well adjusted children who enjoy sitting on dad's knee watching him carve up a dragon or two before bedtime.
  7. You need to complete all of the quests to get it. And most of the quests are members only. 2 + 2 = ?
  8. The people who complain are the ones who's emotional maturity has not yet reached the level where they can see Jagex's existence as being anything other than for their sole benefit. They are the same players who treat other players in-game as simply another set of resources to be exploited. On a subconscious level, they cannot rationalise the little cartoon characters that they see on screen as having living, breathing, feeling humans sitting behind their controls. As such they treat the game as if they are the only ones playing it. So if Jagex does something that doesn't suit their immediate need - they complain. Such people - in life and in computer games - are best ignored until they grow up.
  9. Killing chaos druids for any length of time (like enough to get an inventory full of decent herbs) will see you swimming in mith bolts.
  10. Between that and the Edgeville furnace, I think the Varrock achievement diary has been my favourite update in the years I've been playing. Not to mention a handy "upgrade to members" feature on the Runescape website.

    Because you can't find the capslock key on your keyboard let alone look after an entire runescape character.
  12. I've never smoked a trap... by the time you get three or four traps up and running there's just no way you can afford the extra time.
  13. Why would you not simply train your own skills and sell the resultant materials?
  14. I'm starting to think that certain sectors of the tip.it community are simply pretending to be this dense in order to get a rise out of anyone with a functioning prefrontal cortex. I wish people would read, digest, have a parent explain to them if neccessary, the rebuttals to your arguments that have already been made in this thread. You can not assist and train at the same time. To spend the time that it would take to assist someone to earn 30k worth of experience in a day would mean spending that time not training your skills. So if you have the skill level to smith addy plates, and someone with a low smithing level borrows you to make steel plates, the XP you could have earned making addy plates in the same amount of time would have been greater than the amount you earn from lending your level out to make steel ones. People can do whatever they are able to find a willing assistant to let them do. There is a big difference. See the earlier points regarding no 85+ level miner standing around while a level 3 mines rune ores. However you have never required a level to have someone else do something on your behalf. You've never required a high farming level for someone else to grow torstol and give it to you. All the assistance update does is formalise that process removing any possibility that someone will run off with someone else's stuff as a result of trust-trading.
  15. Confirmed... I just got 0xp for picking my Dwarf Weeds :(
  16. I don't believe I've ever encountered you in game, much less reported you. Each of us do individually... the aggregation of which sets a market price. A law rune is worth nowhere near as much as some people will pay for them when stuck for a teleport - the desirability increases, so too does the price people are willing to pay for the item. That works on a number of levels. The most obvious one being subconscious price fixing. Two people buying pure essence in a bank if one is offering to pay 150 per essence and the other only 50, the two will rapidly converge to avoid either party either paying more than they otherwise might have to, or spending more time waiting for a seller.
  17. While I enjoy the solitude of mole hunting, the nests you get in exchange are more often than not next to worthless. Where nests from woodcutting contain either an egg (rareish), a ring or tree seeds (most commonly) as do the ones obtained through kingdom management. The nests that Wyson supplies in exchange for mole bits can also contain either nothing or low level allotment, flower and herb seeds. I exchanged ten claws and skins the other day for nothing better than cabbage seeds. Just random bad luck I know - I've also scored palm and magic seeds in the past. But on balance, those nests are not as useful as others - balanced by the fact that they are somewhat easier to obtain.
  18. Have to agree there... I haven't even had to consult the in-game quest interface for the last couple.
  19. Short answer... the market. Slightly longer one, as players buy and sell items, the amount of cash they are willing to trade for and accept for those items gravitate toward an average amount dictated by the item's availability and relative desirability. Dragon boots are no more 'available' now than a few hours after the God Wars dungeon came out. Their relative desirability has decreased so the price has gone down. Of course you do... however you shouldn't expect others not to query you on it. If you went to the corner store to buy a litre of milk, and the proprietor said "One bottle of milk, that will be fifty dollars thanks", you don't think you might say "Hang on, doesn't a litre of milk only cost around two dollars?". Sure it's his right to sell it for whatever he wants to, you have the choice to either buy it, or take the time to obtain your milk elsewhere.
  20. Um.. membership is the price of two cups of coffee a month. If I couldn't afford that I'd have a lot more to worry about than playing computer games.
  21. Tip: While you're down there, chip off half a dozen or so shards. Then make them all into salve amulets, so if you lose one you have plenty left.
  22. Talk to him in the Dining room, not in his house.
  23. You went into the wilderness to kill people, now you're complaining because someone else killed you. Do us all a favour and trade in your computer for a DS and a copy of Nintendogs.
  24. When governments (Jagex) institute price caps on commodities (store prices for runes) that are either side of the market price, one of two things happen. If the price is capped lower than the market rate, we see shortages. In the real world this can be seen historically in the bread lines of Soviet Russia, and even today with supermarket shortages in Zimbabwe, or in Runescape - rune shortages as players (and bots) buy up all the cheap runes. Where the price is capped higher than the market rate we see oversupply instead. The only way to combat this is for the controlling body (the government or, in this case Jagex) to provide an infinite supply of the commodity. While it's not realistic for the government to try to ensure an infinite supply of bread, Jagex can quite easily ensure an infinite supply of runes.
