    Runescape, duh...

RuneScape Information

  1. Here's a larger picture showing the coordinate itself, the spot to stand at, and a north-aligned map. http://img861.imageshack.us/img861/6455/1620n1245e.png
  2. I wouldn't be so sure about that. At least in the American Northeast (Pennsylvania to be specific, in my case), Runescape.com and the Runescape client appear to be inaccessible. They are for me, anyways.
  3. As many people will say, while the Patent system is necessary, it's woefully underdeveloped when it comes to software patents. There are far too many ways for a general statement to perform the same action. Patents for mechanical devices or designs require a rough blueprint included with the patent - with which, there really is only one way to design it although with multiple ways to present it (think front loading washer vs top loading washer). With software patents, not only are there multiple ways to perform the same function, there's the multiple coding languages to put it in too. The main problem with this is the youth of the consumer computer system. It was only 15 years ago that Windows 95 was released - the first of many user friendly operating systems and one of the first to include internet functionality as well. The more patent trolls that get killed like this, the closer the system will get to reform and the less we'll have to deal with this. All we can really do at this point is support the companies fighting the trolls, assuming the patents they're fighting really are vague and trollish in nature. While I can understand the patent when it was first released, after a while, such ideas become such common and necessary that enforcement of them will stifle more creativity than they create... ... Dang it, I'm preaching to a crowd that probably doesn't care. Good job JaGeX for not giving up like Microsoft did. While it's a shame, as was said, that the US doesn't have frivolous prosecution statutes, the reason behind this, I'm sure, is to prevent people from counter-suing frivolously in turn. That, of course, is not to say we don't have malicious prosecution statutes, which is something completely different.
  4. My skin: http://minecraft.net/skin/skin.jsp?user=darkblade986 Best way to find a skin is to make it yourself. Google up a reference model of what you want to build and take your time. Much more satisfying than just downloading one. As for the height of the Nether, I believe it's the same height floor to ceiling as a regular map; only difference is that Nether's ceiling is solid bedrock as oppose to sky.
  5. I get what you're saying, but still. Consider the Novac gift store has a storage closet that lets off 1RAD/sec alone and you can probably see why some of the houses would be boarded up (admittedly, that closet was filled with radioactive material). Who knows - Fallout 3 got an expansion pack, so those boarded up houses could be used if/when F:NV gets its expansion to hold new characters. Though this game really earns its M rating when you consider how much innuendo there is with Confirmed Bachelor on a male character (and I can only imagine what it's like with Lady Killer on a female). Confirmed Bachelor and Lady Killer are ridiculously helpful though - helps you get around many challenges*, and you can have them both by Level 4 if you really pushed for it. *Taking the "Come Fly with Me" quest as an example (the one where Manny in Novac has you investigate the RETCONN facility), you can get the information to continue the main storyline with Confirmed Bachelor, leaving Come Fly with Me as optional. Alternatively, when you have to pay Old Lady Gibson 500 caps to obtain the launch module, a Barter check can get that down to 250 but Lady Killer makes that free. (Of course, Pickpocketing her does the exact same thing). Did I mention I got way too much pleasure out of Boone's side quest? Cause I got way too much pleasure out of Boone's side quest. *beret* *blamo* :blink: *Ahem* I suppose we should've had a Spoiler warning going at some point at this rate. EDIT: Regarding the Pack Rat perk, also realize that each companion you have with you effectively works as a pack mule as well.
  6. @Above - you have to remember we're talking about a game about a life born from a nuclear fallout (pun obviously intended to the fullest). You can't access those buildings because no one has gotten around to rebuilding them. It's a convenient out for the developers to not overly detail their cities, but it's also reasonably accurate. At this point, I'm avoiding Sloan because of the deathclaws. Even with 10 END, I'm running a Melee Weapon character. They tear me apart. Now then - it's STORY TIME! Seriously, if you're not taking a Legion-heavy storyline, you will want Boone as a companion. Even if you don't upgrade his weaponry, take him with you. He'll help ridiculously. Case in point: I have Boone and ED-E as companions and I take them into the HELIOS One powerplant, fully intending to redirect the power (in some way). I get to the part where I have to disable an automated security system. This system consists of turrets and robots with energy weapons. As I'm reaching the terminal to disable them, the camera does its kill-cam shift and I see one of the robots falling over with its headpiece blown COMPLETELY OFF. I'm not talking just knocked off, it's shattered. Score 1 for Boone's stock rifle.
  7. Yes, the outside world may think of Runescape as "farmland," but when that farmland is self-sustaining, the inhabitants don't give a care about it. I would say we aren't "farmland," necessarily as much as we are a rising power. I was wondering where we were hidden on that map. I saw it when it was released, but couldn't find the larger version of it to get the details.
  8. Monster that dropped Clue: Steel Dragon Level of Clue (If 100% known): Elite Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Level 23 east Wilderness, along river separating Clan Wars from Daemonheim http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/723/compasslv23wildyeastcla.png Additional information if needed: Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Mort'ton, center of the Southern Crossroads just north of Burgh De Rott http://img686.imageshack.us/img686/3091/compassmorttoncrossroad.png Additional information if needed: Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Just outside the Rellekka Mountain Camp, northwest of the Slayer Cave http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/9599/compassoutsiderellekkam.png Additional information if needed: Clue Hint (With picture): Orb, Dorgesh-Kaan, 16 paces Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Southeast of city, east of Wire Machine http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/5277/orbdorgeshkaaneastwirem.png Additional information if needed: Think you might have this one already, but adding "East of Wire Machine" might be helpful
  9. Monster that dropped Clue: Desert Strykewyrm Level of Clue (If 100% known): Elite Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Outside Falador walls, northeast corner. http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/7571/compassoutsitefaladorno.png Additional information if needed: Just a bit east of the Grapple shortcut and the "Ruined Runes" place Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Port Sarim jail, 2 steps south through the North door http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/9631/compassportsarimjail.png Additional information if needed: Clue Hint (With picture): Orb, "Haunted Woods, 11 paces" Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Just west of the Werewolf Agility Course, outside of Canifis to the southeast of the Bank http://img638.imageshack.us/f/orbhauntedwoodswestagil.png/ Additional information if needed:
  10. Monster that dropped Clue: Iron Dragon Level of Clue (If 100% known): Elite Clue Hint (With picture): Orb, "within Varrock Walls, 16 paces" Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Southwest Varrock, West of Apothecary inside the guard house. http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/7949/compassscrollvarrocksou.png Additional information if needed: Quick way to tell if this is your scroll is to teleport to the Grand Exchange. Arrow will be pointing almost vertically south. Clue Hint (With picture): Compass Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Moss Giant Island, west of Brimhaven http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/9898/compassscrollbrimhavenm.png Additional information if needed: Arrow points just slightly north of horizontal when teleporting to Amulet of Glory - Karamja Clue Hint (With picture): Orb, "dark of Lumbridge Caves, ? paces" Where to solve Clue (With Picture): Immediately beside the rope entrance to the Caves http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/5571/orbscanscrolllumbridgec.png Additional information if needed: Spiny helmet / Slayer helm(s) helpful for traveling through caves Random tidbit - Meerkat pouches are extremely helpful, even if people say they aren't. By being all of a Sextant, Compass, Chart, and Spade but not as an item, Wilderness scrolls are a little safer to do, as you'll be able to safely 3-item around. The pouches also save on any difficulty with wizards. Zamorak wizards (wildy 3+) are cake and could be handled with fists + prayer, but for Hard and Elite scrolls, a Meerkat is extremely helpful in avoiding Saradomin and Guthix wizards. Considering they currently cost 2.5k (and the scrolls not much at all anyways), Hard and Elite scrolls will easily pay for the pouches. Elite scrolls may take long enough as to require a second pouch, but Hard scrolls can almost always be done in 1.
  11. Doing While Guthix Sleeps at the moment. When I got to the part about administering the enriched truth serum, in expecting to have to give all 3 choices, I offered it to him as juice first. To my surprise, he willingly took it. From there, when I asked about Movario, he began to tell me off, "*gulp*"ed, and immediately broke out in confession. In short, either Juice works first thing now, or you don't need to do all 3 choices anymore. Also, for the thermometer part, are you 100% sure it's random? Before looking at the thermometer, my weight was 49kg. Through fluke or something else, the thermometer came up as 49 as well. Other notes so far: 4: Thaerisk does aid in the killing. He was casting what appeared to be Earth Wave. 29: The snapdragon seed he will sell you appears to be priced at 75% of the current GE price. When I bought it, GE was showing 54.5k and he offered to sell it to me for 40,878gp. Math on that is convincingly close to 75%. 37: Mentioning where the 3 Warrior's Guild folks are within the guild would be nice. Ghommal (front door) and Harrallack (main lobby) were easy, but Sloane was a little difficult for me to find at first (he's hiding outside the Shot Put area, past the heavy gate). 39: Both your guide and the Bestiary entry fail to mention that the 3 pieces of armor you need are 100% drops (and the only drops) when you kill them at this stage, albeit 1 piece at a time. *edit see below* To me, anyways, it sounded like you have to camp them out and hope they eventually drop the pieces, rather than getting them immediately every time at first. EDIT: Regarding the following 2 "confirmation" requests from the submission index. I apologize for not having any pictures, but I hope my crew experience can give my statements a little more trust. http://forum.tip.it/topic/214628-while-guthix-sleeps/ It is indeed the 138s that will drop the 3 pieces 100% one after the other. I killed them only and that's what they dropped. No secondary drops, just the armor pieces. http://forum.tip.it/topic/263645-tai-bwo-wannai-trio-and-while-guthix-sleeps/ The guard I talked to was one of the attackable ones directly north of the arena (he was in the house in the middle with 2 doors, one on the west and one on the south). He mentioned correctly as the guide says. EDIT2: Regarding that third submission, about using a familiar for the final fight. It's unnecessary. It should be noticed that you can hide behind the Stone of Jas, similar to hiding behind the pillars for Nomad. Heal up, then go back out and continue the smackdown. From there, the Tormented Demons are easy, as not only are your combat stats boosted to 255, but your Life Points get cranked to 2550 as well (the equivalent of 255 Constitution, even though that doesn't increase). If not for your massive defenses, you'd still be sponging up any damages.
  12. Had made most of these notes based on your old version (the one from about 20 minutes ago). Some of these may have been fixed already and I've tried to remove the ones I noticed you did fix. Assorted grammar corrections asterisked. 2. The Hunt Begins Talking to Gerrant and mentioning that you're looking for a lost animal (or whatever the option is) will tell you about the barrels, at which time, the beginning of the slime trail will appear automatically. 3. Cellar Business **Technically, it was "key" singular, not "keys" plural that he lost. Just saying.** From what I saw, the key typically was in the northeast pile of junk. When I did this, Jessika didn't notice the crack until after I "Investigated" the crack in the wall. 4. Off to Musa Point Korasi actually mentions in one of the next sentences after "talk to the locals" that you should start with the Barkeeper; something about them being fountains of gossip. The Barkeep would then direct you to Shopkeeper Kofi next. **there's a random period between the two paragraphs here** **Last two sentences are butchered a little where they meet. The word "go" could be removed to fix this.** Jessika tells you to meet them at the Chemist as well after talking to the craftsman, a minor detail you didn't add. 5. Chemical Spill **3rd sentence miscapitalized "he"** 6. Threat of Falador In attempting to decide how to open the box, you'll be presented with 3 sets of options of 3 each of different ways to open it. It should be noted that which options you pick won't matter. 7. Time for a Clue Minor detail, but the crate in question can be found in the main room, the one with the shop and the dog sleeping by the fire place. 8. Final Confrontation **"Black Knight Guardian" -- capitalization issues in the last paragraph You left the recommendation of Prayer Potions in the "Items Suggested" bar. EXTRA INFORMATION: Before interviewing workers on the Port Sarim docks, you will interrupt a conversation between Jesskia and Korasi where Jesskia asks about why the Void Knights kill the Pests. You can inquire about this as well, at which time Korasi will give you a book with this information. I haven't read this book myself just yet, but it was there.
  13. Almost universally, it comes down to whether you can do your actions on the run and not interfere with the pace.
  14. http://www.tip.it/runescape/?rs2monster_id=1459 So I understand all of Ihlakhizan's attacks. Problem is that he just keeps murdering me. Specifically, the acid attack routinely damages me for 600+. What is the effective way to kill him or at least to dodge the Acid AoE?
  15. The Falador Diary was not updated with the recent change in Hit Points to Life Points. Specifically, the entry for killing a Skeletal Wyvern cautions against going without an Elemental or Mind Shield as it would otherwise hit in the "50s," which should be updated to "500s."
