Ever since I lost my red phat back in 2002 I've always wanted to get another one.

 

Never gunna happen with their prices these days going from a measly 50m and zero boss/staking skills. :<

 

Staking is optimistically 50:50; you will make as much as you lose. However, most people will get cleaned, because they don't abuse bugs and don't stop if they get ahead. I'm certain only maybe a handful of stakers have ever profited, either through clever deception that's within the rules or just outliers; the rest either RWT or scam. Everyone else gets cleaned.

 

I went from royal crossbow (500k) and staff of light (150k or some such) with some untradable gear (just a time investment at Pest Control; no skill necessary) to a total of ~2b pretty much just killing a single monster type (Tormented Demons) for 330 hours spread over 1.5 years. That's not even an hour a day. If I had sold drops at more opportune times and maintained my now-consistent 150+ KPH, this would have been nearly 3.3b...

 

Unlike any random 'Scaper would have to now, I tried a bunch of different methods to perfect the strategy, going from an average ~90 KPH to a solid 150 KPH at a minimum. Most people now would be able to get up to 120-130 KPH with "free" weapons (royal crossbow and Chaotic staff) after a few hours based on the methods I discovered.

 

Judging by current red partyhat prices, it would take ~310 hours based on the "lifetime average" price of limbs. It's very possible for an average 'Scaper, especially because party hats are artificially inflated at this moment. In the context of Tormented Demons, memorization is all that's necessary, not quick thinking or high APM.

 

i turned 30m into over 3b poly staking in a week and a half :3 its pretty easy guessing when you're going to win.

 

 

There was a game series I played, Pokemon. It's all very random, the act of getting "good Pokemon." There's 6 independent "stats" that are generated on encounter, as well as a few other traits that affect viability. On top of that, there's a minute chance for the Pokemon to be shiny (1/8192 chance that has quirks to modify it). It's very possible to get a "perfect" Pokemon through sheer determination in these games... Breeding a perfect Pokemon (6 maxed stats) from two parents with 5 optimal maxed stats is 1:80,000. To get said parents (5 IV) from a 4 IV parents is 1:5000. To get said 4 IV parents from 3 IV parents is 1:250. And so on...

 

And those odds are considered good because, outside of total abuse of the random number generation method, catching a perfect wild Pokemon is much less likely, oftentimes impossible (due to how the RNG works). Yes, 1:80,000 odds is considered "good" in this case, because assuming a perfectly fair RNG, getting a perfect legendary is something like 1:1,300,000,000.

 

However, those seeking perfect Pokemon aren't slaves to chance. The random number generator for Pokemon is very abusable. The algorithm in use, as well as seeding mechanics, as well as output mechanics, is well documented from the GBA games to the DS ones. This means I, or anyone else, can force the RNG to ensure a perfect Pokemon in a fraction of the time with minimal or no reliance on outrageous odds.

 

Why did I provide this anecdote? Because RuneScape's RNG is not reverse engineered. Similarly, there is no way--client side--to predict the outcome of the RNG. Realiabily "guessing" when you'll get lucky isn't possible. Most likely you are mistaking your outlier luck with some sense of precognition or strategy. Given two maxed players with identical gear and legacy combat, the probability of you winning is 0.5, just like your opponent. The only criteria that changes that is deceit (and therefore, increasing your raw DPS or defensive capabilities compared to your opponents).

 

Again, staking is never a reliable means of making money. Only gamblers or scammers think so.

Time for a lot of pictures. :D

 

From the past week or so:

Both phoenix pets, finally got the second one:

Never thought I'd be able to tolerate Legios because of the annoying way the fight is structure (constant hitting and running), and the fact that it's gambling, but I got through it:

It was a passive side-goal of mine ever since the start of the year when they came out.

Had to get em  -_-

 

EDIT

Learned that Blood Necklaces degrade on death if not protected, and you reclaim your grave, like other things.

Instead of spending like 10 hrs in SGWD camp, I ran to Rippers a few times.

Y'all probably think that's the most minor change ever, but the color is now spot-on with the rest of the 'lilac'.

This outfit feels completely complete. :)

 

EDIT2:

Another quick one I threw together... I need to actually go do something productive haha

Kiwlpjj.png

Let's call this one the Infantry or Stealth-type. :)

 

EDIT 3:

I didn't really get a great picture, but 200M Prayer achieved. No fireworks, no congratulations broadcast either since it's F2P.
