Now, if anyone calls anybody a PC product, they should be proceeded to be smacked in the face by every person who knows how hard PC is now. An actually worse way to train CB now. Un-PC ways to train get pwned by nub pures now....



Still, i had 70 points, so i get no good bonus :( I dislike how they won't let you keep getting points. Maybe added a boat that had the old game so people could get 100 points one last time.


you got 110% for all of your tickets, as jagex said in their forums, so dont cry.



And about pc products- jagex nerfed pc xp, not banned people that got high levels who trained at pc, so dont get it worng, and pc is still a fast and unrespectable way of leveling combat.




Now its disrespectfull to play a minigame for a smaller percent of the experience. Stop dwelling in the past and get used to updates, they happen weekly, and change the face of runescape completly sometimes.

Well I tried it for 100 pts and the one thing ppl havent factored in is how much harder it is to win now. Even with high lvls we only win 50% of the time. With the new rule of monsters you can walk through they can now walk through each other. This means when they invade they can stack on each other and all shoot at once instead of a line where just one shoots. Watch the price of dragon bones skyrocket. (of course I say this AFTER I buy 37k dragon bones) :)

You would be hard-pressed to actually find a person who has PCed to 99 prayer (or even 90), so prices will not change. You are losing in the 100+ boat because you are with people who have little experience with PC and don't have any strategy. If you were to go with a clan like HU, ARPC, Nucs, ZPS, etc, you would win at least 80% of the games (before the noobs start finding the world).

I've never noticed those sleeves on the top before; are those only on male characters or are they from the helms?



Time to complete the set again...

looks like the trade swapping days are finally over. another great idea from jagex that gets rid of a scam. it also gets rid of the willow mage swap on a german server, that my friend lost 1 mil to.

Way to go Jagex....



Just ask nicely and u get what u want.



Jagex caters to beggers and lazy people.



There is absolutely no skill involved in skilling anymore.



Just about everything has an "x" option, just click and sit, go afk, look at other sites....wow hard.



Good job jagex you have officially ruined one of the tougher skills in the game. It is just a rich version of fletching now.



Skills are respected cause they take effort and time. It is getting to the point where no skill takes effort. The game should be a challenge. Just because people dont feel like clicking a few thousand times doesnt mean there is a problem with the skill.



This game is at the point where it is excessivly easy to get levels.



Thanks jagex for ruining another skill.



Can't wait for mining to become like wc, or else why dont you find out a way to ruin rc or slayer.



I am 99 herb but im not just saying "o i did it the hard way". This game needs a few hard skills. There is no problem with them. Just because 5k people dont have 99 doesnt mean there is an issue.


Thanks, everyone seems to forget this. I totally agree with you, I just tried some herblore and it's sooooo much easier now. It isn't even fun anymore. This is one of the worst updates up to date (together with a lot of other "X" options, let's wait for a "Afk X" now).

When everything's been said and done, more has been said than done.

All skills 80+

Marginal improvement in herblore.

Getting the stuff (herbs in particular) was the hard part, not clicking use wf vial with herb like any chimp can do.

Getting more herbs easier and/or increasing the farming yields so farming was actually more meaningful than token would be a real improvement in herblore.



Anyhow, try not to rant like the emos crying about getting some small agility from leaping fish.

I think somebody calculated it to be with 140mil fishing xp you get 99 agility.

140mil fishing has never been done yet, so 99 agility will never be achieved by somebody who quit agility courses back in the noob levels.

You might have noticed that 'make-x' for smithing is missing - do not fear! It is still being worked on and will be brought to you soon.


I do fear, Jagex, I do.




for some reason I just bursted out laughing at that :XD:

since you say that.... no, not really, herblore is now slower than before... you should be happy that you have 99 herb...



anyway, anyone who is a mod can tell us what the city crier would say to you? i heard it is different than us...

I got a pc product pure myself and ain't too happy with it.

But on the otherside training at pc was insane exp and sometimes not even funny anymore.



I got peace with it now and decided to try some rock crabs and fire giants again.

Really, I dont see your point with all the x-ing at all.



The hard part in all the skills was getting the materials. That part has stayed. Why on earth do you prefer manually clicking all the potions, and risking a tunnel syndrom or RSI when you now just can click x and look away. Seriously, I'm happy about it and I like it.

I really cant see why you prefer it the harder way, by only needing a lot more clicking.

Well lets start from the top. The topic of discussion here is clearly PC and make x.



Quite frankly I don't care much about PC. I might PC long enough to get the outfit but I doubt I can do that at level 89. There's no decent clans out there for mid-level players and I have a dreadful feeling that it will basically be a bunch of people running around like chickens with their head cut off. I've always thought PC was boring and a waste of time, my mind might change now if a 70-99 clan emerges. That'd be nice.



As for 'make x' well I think it's a lot of pointless complaining. If you want a challenge then it's as easy as this. Don't use it! Simple right? Yes! The "simpleness" of make x is gone and now you have your challenge. That wasn't too hard eh?



I'm disappointed that the axe head random is now gone. This is a BAD thing. Botters have ALWAYS had trouble with lost axe/pickaxe head for the longest time. Now Jagex is benefiting them. They can sit with 20 Rune Axes in their bank and once they're all broken they can just fix them again. At least with the lost head random they would bot with at best a steel axe in fear of losing money on lost axe heads. This has to be the lowest point and worst point of the update IMO



Something else the bothers me is that I probably won't get the new random from hunting because if I do then there's a good chance I'll loose my traps. So this means that I can't get the book of experience for more Hunter xp. If they decrease the chance of getting a genie I'll be greatly upset.



Last on the list is the new trade window ++ on that to Jagex. I can see A LOT less scams in the future. But if I had to guess people will obviously find a way around this too and find ways to scam. When there is an open market there will always be scammers. Just look at infomertials :<img src=:' />
