  1. Do you view the RuneScape official forums as an area where the common player can have a nice, open discussion with thousands of other players, along with the occasional input from a moderator or Jagex mod? Or, Do you look at it as a pit full of illiterate, immature, young children who can't find their way around a cardboard box, let alone RuneScape? Or perhaps you view the RSOF as something else entirely? I'd like to hear all of your opinions, good or bad. In my own opinion, I believe the RSOF has always had good intentions, but over time its became something so controlled by many new rules, wannabe moderators, and English-challenged children, that it's just difficult to have a really good discussion about a certain topic without upsetting somebody(Not to mention, tons of accidental filter screw-ups can destroy a decent post). But my main quarrel with the RSOF is the wannabe moderators. You know, the kids who have no power moreso than you and I, yet talk down to us on each and every one of our threads and posts. Yes, them. There seem to be more of them on the RSOF than players nowadays, and quite frankly, that's the main reason why you see me here on Tipit, rather than there on the RSOF. Now, about those children. RuneScape has always been a game that has appealed to the younger aged (13-) crowd, I'm sure we're all well aware we technically need to be 13 to play Runescape. But c'mon, if somebody sees a warning that says they need to be 13, and they ACTUALLY STOP their intentions, just because of that warning. Well, I pity the person who would do that, since it means they'll probably do or believe just about anything that anybody says to them. So really, I can't blame the 8-12 year olds making accounts on RuneScape from miniclip or whatever, and managing to lie about their age when making an account. The problem is their inability to type properly, stay on topic, or even READ what the original poster says, examples are below: Enough said. /Discuss.
  2. Could you replace my indexed picture with this one? Thanks in advance.
  3. Here is me, Axeraider194: Sublime FTW :) Index?
  4. Taken from the tech support sticky on the rsof, 11/11/07: Me, as well as numerous other players, got hit with the malicious popup upon visiting the Runescape home page, it got past my norton antivirus, and spybot search and destroy didnt pick it up, so I ran another one of my antivirus tools, and it picked it up and deleted it (it was a trojan). Something along these lines happened to me about two years ago as well, along with some other people. I got a weird virus that showed up as a picture of a dog's face on the toolbar, and I kept getting hit with pop ups every hour or so, as well as the homepage being changed to some "adult" material..and it may have been from rs, because there were multiple topics about that in the tech forum back then as well. But it was staggering how many people didn't believe it on the rsof when people were making topics about it, it was filled with posts such as "RS is 100% safe! You CANNOT get any viruses from rs!", as well as forum mods who didn't belive the situation and kept locking posts and topics because it simply "is not possible". Well, as you can see, they have been proven wrong. Never let your guard down :P
  5. I don't see how walking to varrock to buy something is any different than going to falador park to buy something. In short, prices won't change at all.
  6. It most certainly would, at least, a hell of a lot more than what the money sink in world 2 and the forums are (0gp) Get every single piece of barrow armor, barrow weapons, dragon armor, dragon weapons, rune armor, rune weapons, Third age armor, dragonhide, staffs, robes, etc. That's a lot of high alch value in each of those pieces, which=more deposit money. Now, think of most players in runescape doing that.
  7. When it comes to phats and other rares, that's an awful lot of deposit money.
  8. Party hats have an extremely low (if any) high alchemy value, as with all rares.
  9. NOTE: There is no information or proof that this is real, or that Jagex will implement it into the update, it is just a possibility. __________________ One word: DEPOSITS. If Jagex takes a % of the items value (gauged by high alch value perhaps?) you are selling it for (say, 1% of the value) when the object fails to sell in the auction house, it can be a neverending money sink. It'll prevent people from selling tons and tons of items for rediculous prices, since they are getting charged a small amount of gp if the object fails to sell (The deposit is put in before the item goes up for sale, if the object sells, you get the deposit back, if it doesn't, you lose the deposit) For example, if I put a fire battlestaff up for sale in the bank (High alch value--9300), in order to put it up for sale, I will need to pay a deposit fee (93gp). If the object sells, I get what the buyer paid for, plus my 93gp deposit back. If it fails to sell at my price, the game keeps my deposit of 93gp. Yes, it's a lot like in World of Warcraft. Something like this can really control the gp/inflation problem, slowly but surely, it's a neverending money sink that although it's only a few gp from each person from every item they sell, it adds up to large amounts over time. Thoughts? Opinions?
  10. Do you have proof for this or is it just another made-up statistic? Runemonkey.net Tracks the xp of the players who register, you can view daily xp rates of certain people.
  11. Actually, loads of people do brews to 99, brews+range pots are the best herb xp. Some people get 800k xp+ a day doin brews for herblore
  12. Because a saradomin brew is directly tied to a blue phat right?
  13. Take a look at all the toadflax grown every day, then take a look at the number of nests brought into runescape every day. The ways to get nests are very limited: -Kingdom managing (Less than 10 nests per day with maples at full, correct me if i'm wrong) -The random event while chopping trees. -Going through the hassle of killing the giant mole under falador park. (1-4 possible nests per kill once hides/claws are traded in, however, after all the chasing, a mole kill can take 5+ minutes to do) Now, my main worry here is that I train on aberrant spectres for combat xp, and from 83-86 defense, i've accumulated over 200 toadflax seeds, which is approx. 1,000+ toadflax, which equals 1,000 saradomin brews, provided I have the nests. If I try to max at aberrants for all 3 combat stats (plus hp), I could be left with over 5k seeds, which means 25,000+ toadflax, or 25,000 brews. How are the number of nests supposed to keep up with the number of toadflax people plant every day? My personal opinion is that Jagex should make a quest, or an area, with possibly a big tree that has nest spawn points at the bottom of it (without seeds, rings, or eggs, just empty nests) And before you say that easy ways to get nests would destroy potion prices or whatever, then think about this: -Snape grasses are easy to get, yet prayer pots cost 7k+ -Red spider eggs are easy to get, yet super restores cost 9k+ -Same goes with just about any other potion. Let me know what you guys think about the current bird nest situation.
  14. Blogscape. It's like Lightning, but without spammers, elitists, and (with all due respect) trigger-happy moderators.
