So, the bonus xp weekend is over, and I did manage my big goal! After about an hour of play on friday I finally reached that elusive level 96 summoning \:D/ It's so awesome to finally be able to use that amazing familiar. So far I've only tested it on a trip to mith drags (had an assignment of 11), but it was wonderful not to have to leave a single mith bar or bury a single d-bone. Bring on the addy drags Jagex, I'm as ready as I'll ever be . The rest of the weekend was pretty ramshackle. Didn't get another level, but I did get some xp in a couple of not-so-favorite skills. So I'm now 100K or less away from levels in ranged, construction, RC and hunter. All skills I rarely train :D Yesterday I also did my first quest in ages. I'm not a big quest fan, but I did make myself run through the blood pact. And I was then promptly kidnapped by Crew to help them with fixing some images and getting some lunar scans. Well, as their quest guides and skill tips have helped me out on numerous occations, how could I resist. <3: In RL this week has seen snowmageddon here in middle parts of Norway (probably elsewhere too, but I've only been here so.) I was starting to hope for spring. That should teach me a lesson. Aparently we're suppposed to get around 70cm this week. I'm pretty sure about half of that already has arrived. If I liked skiing I guess I would be extatic....
Say Cheese! Hey all! Yes I'm posting another blog update already...shocking isn't it? Its nothing really smithing related I just thought this was worth a share and a laugh :lol:. Apparently Jagex has finally given us RSOF avatars (p2p only sadly). I rustled up to the photo booth and got my mug photographed. Its nice to have a face on the forums now but I can't help but find my grin a little cheesy looking: *Curtsies* Another interesting tidbit added today is the rather ladylike (or should I say unladylike), curtsy emote. No worries gals, we can still bow just like the fellas, and they can return the favor and curtsy right back! There's a slight glitch however...I don't think the Queen of England would find this an acceptable show of respect: Thoughts?
Hello World, I couldnt think of a better opener than what was already here. Anyway, Im bogging again, finally I hope this time I will keep it up for a bit more than a week; that is, as long as Jagex keep updating Runescape. Otherwise I have nothing to talk about I can tell you that todays blog will NOT include the easter event. Ok, my first topic of the day is the fairly recent update named Fish flingers, it was a lucky coincidence that at the time I was working on 85 fishing (which I still havent yet achieved). I really expected the community to be revved up about this new distraction and diversion, I certainly was. Needless to say, the usual outpour of rants and the flame wars that follow swamped the forums just minutes after the update; before anyone could actually get any idea of the update or what it had to offer. I was quite a skeptic about the Pro-jagex community and a few of their views, that was however until this update pushed me (slightly) in their direction. I understood beforehand that nearly every update is proceeded by rants and various obscenities being posted across many webpages, but I never considered its utter pointlessness. So with me working hard (afking), fishing monks; I decided to check out the experience points on offer for completing a (I will call it) game of Fish Flingers. I knew that the rewards (a tackle box or some free fish) wouldnt reach the value (or anywhere near as I found out) that of fishing trawler, so rewards were away from the point. I unearthed one of my biggest frustrations early on; the sheer difficulty of getting into a game on time (or at least worrying about it) made going any distance from the fishing guild an impossibility, so instead I wasted over an hour fishing tuna and swordfish waiting for the Master Fishers or whatever they were called to appear Which they never did (or at least, I wasnt there to see them). Although, the counter argument could be that no D+D is easy to get to, and that this is probably the easiest D+D to get to; with the requirement of spending some time in the fishing guild (which is no bad thing for a fisher). Anyway; the game its self (Im sure you have tried already, so Ill summarise) is easy to grasp if you ask a few questions. After playing the first ever game of it; the mass confusion entertained and annoyed me at the same time But what I seriously appreciated were the people who readily offered their setups (most 100% effective). This is the complete opposite to what I call Virtual-Capitilism and it makes me smile; a community, whether online or off should always work together and to see this in Runescape is somewhat rare. Basicly, if you really havent played the game before you need to get a set up that works 100% effectively with the type of fish you are catching. Certain areas (a beach or a dock prehaps) have exclusivity to certain fish (cod for example). Your aim is to get the right bait, the right hook, the right rod and the right weights. This can be achieved through trial and error, but sometimes you only have to wait for people to tell you. The game on the whole isnt what you would call fun, but neither is it hard work So it would definitely appeal to either the Afking community or the grind till you drop community. One major upside (I believe) is that it brings a lot of people together, so it could I suppose be used as regular clan events or just something different to do. Ive noticed recently that Jagex are making alternative ways to train (Xp rates remain about the same, maybe lower), through mini games or D+Ds like this Its a great addition to the game, but there are those who dont believe in it, if thats you feel free to comment below! Todays clan event (one I actually attended) was barrows; sadly, Ork (our GMT event guy Pwnage Name) his internet died Right before the easter holidays as well. More on the event, for the first time today I actually tried out using a black salamander. I must say, if you were planning to use the slayer dart, this is far more cost-effective and hits probably more than the dart. I cant say Im the biggest fan of barrows; the effort of buying and selling potions, food and runes just annoys me I guess I was lucky that one of our clan members had a spare 600 or so harralander tar to sell me. It only cost me 50k or so, so compared to 600 slayer darts, I think you can see the price reduction already! While there I was wondering if this mini game or activity as they are now called needed updating; compared to the likes of stealing creation (a far more modern and number coordinated mini game) this activity belonged to runescape classic. Yet isnt the point I wonder that mini games are supposed to be fun? I understand the excitement of finally reaching your loot, knowing that a barrows item isnt as rare as they are made out to be So, no major update needed in my opinion A few tweaks here and there prehaps. I know they added a list of who you have killed recently and thats a step in the right direction, I just think maybe a loot chance % so people can finally find out whether killing all those dungeon rats (whatever they are called) was worth it. But maybe that takes away the fun, I dunno. Ill wrap it up here for today, there is loads more I want to talk about but after a while of blogging Ive realised I cant use all my material in just one entry. Thanks For Reading!
