RuneScape Information

  1. It's also useless for those of us who have played for more than 10 years, since he doesn't give any information about how long we've been playing (trust me, I've looked - I really want to know when exactly I started playing)
  2. People who tested legacy for even just one minute are included into this 30%, so I think there are really few people using it. Which means that I would be counted, when my use of legacy was turning it on, balking at how the interface changed, then having to figure out how to change it back. Well then, good to know that the number looks good for PR but means nothing. I don't hate the idea of legacy - I like both the old and new combat system, I just don't feel like using it right now and really don't want to take a step backward when it comes to the interface/hotkeys. If they can give me hotkeys for spells/prayers/items alongside the old combat system, then I'll just switch between the two whenever I feel like using one or the other. Of course, now there's the inevitable arguments and testing for what Slayer tasks are faster on one or the other - there has to be something there, and people will be changing based on the task. At the least, it should be amusing to watch.
  3. The last one sounds right, but it's the only one there I really doubt. I know there was the possibility of it hitting 1, which might just be a fifth possibility. Other than that, I'm pretty sure those are the right numbers - I just never kept too close track of it and I'm afraid to try digging into the old edits of the Wikia site to figure it out.
  4. Forget adding legacy (I'm giving that time to blow up and settle down before I go near it), this is the life-changing update of the day.
  5. They do more damage than chaotics and can be repaired for less (assuming using coins instead of trying to value dungeoneering tokens), either by using chitin scraps or having 67+ smithing at an armour stand. (67 smithing is the level at which it goes under 2m to repair a mainhand drygore, but you should use chitin scraps if you have less than 72 smithing). At that point, if you want to do an analysis, you'll have to look at GWD weapons to really make a good comparison where there's a real trade-off. Short answer: if you have the cash to buy them, drygores are worth it. (Assuming that today's update didn't completely scramble everything, which we'll probably have figured out for sure in a week or two.)
  6. Here's the way to think about it: it teleports items when they get added to your inventory. They should explain it that way, as that's basically the way that it works (I think there are some circumstances that it doesn't do that, but it's not very many).
  7. It adds a little bit of security. However if you always log out completely instead of going to the lobby and don't click the box for "trust for 30 days" or use a computer that no one else has access to, it's not really necessary. I'm keeping mine, since I'm very paranoid about security, but it's not all that necessary. The way I view a bank pin is that is always worthwhile. If the worst case happens you you do get hacked in spite of everything else protection wise and you don't have one thats it poof bye bye everything. If you do have one however you have 7 (or 3 if you like to set it less secure for no reason) days to secure your account before they can access anything other than your inventory and equipped gear. I didn't know exactly what they did when you tried to remove your bank pin - I just haven't had the motivation to try it yet (I'm going to be poking around a lot with their security pretty soon), but now that I know that, I definitely recommend keeping it. It's not perfect, but it definitely is better than nothing.
  8. It adds a little bit of security.

  9. We are nowhere near formal enough for that. I figured as much, I just wanted to be doubly sure. I will definitely look at malware and what it has the potential to do to your account. And don't worry about it being well-researched - this is going to be written very slowly, with a focus on getting everything right from good sources, not on getting it written as quickly as possible. Also, since this is being written for the RS audience, who might not necessarily be knowledgeable about security in general, I'm going to also focus on making this educational about security in general as well.
  10. It should help with introducing it to people - once I got used to using 2FA with Google, I added it to everything I possibly could. And you don't need it for the website? I assumed that was just because my computer was trusted... Wow, this is going to need some digging into (which I'm working on at the moment). And yeah, their password strength is terrible. I remember when I tried typing in my password without capitals and it went through... my jaw literally dropped that they would be so stupid. I'm trying to figure out why they would do it that way, and none of those ideas are good.
  11. No, you won't. The only reason you should ever have to re-authenticate is if, for some reason, you think that the QR code or 16 character code got out of your control and might be used by someone else, at which point they give you a new code (they should, theoretically - I haven't tested this out yet, but not changing the code each time doesn't make any sense). You won't have to re-link the authenticator on your computer/smartphone again, no, but you do have to enter the short code generated from the authenticator once a month. So it's the same code every time? Or will that have to be generated every month? Every 30 seconds, the authenticator generates a new 6 digit code. You have to enter that each time you log in, unless you check the box to remember you on that computer for 30 days. After those 30 days, your next login will require you to enter the 6 digit code that is showing on the authenticator when you log in.
  12. Wow, that was a big error in reading comprehension - thanks for pointing it out. I blame it on the topic talking about using the authenticator on the computer itself, as well as the fact that I'm currently researching the guts of the Google Authenticator app, so I'm really in that mindset at the moment. Also, it says pretty clearly that it saves for 30 days, but I guess some people might miss it.
  13. No, you won't. The only reason you should ever have to re-authenticate is if, for some reason, you think that the QR code or 16 character code got out of your control and might be used by someone else, at which point they give you a new code (they should, theoretically - I haven't tested this out yet, but not changing the code each time doesn't make any sense).
  14. I'd be more than glad to so long as I don't have to give exclusive publishing rights to the Times (I can do timed exclusivity, but I want to keep the rights just in case I want to do something else with it).
  15. I know what questions I'm looking to answer (for the most part, and all of those are part of it), I'm mostly trying to figure out if other people have investigated this before me, which could do one of two things: 1) Save me time trying to get the answers 2) Give me a baseline to compare their current security to (More than likely the second, but I might have difficulty getting through to Jagex if their previous customer service reputation is anything to go by). (On a side note, I've already figured out that the passwords you can use are terrible - no special characters, case insensitive, limit of 20 characters - makes me cringe)
