The Grand Exchange! :thumbsup:



And even though I don't like the PKing/Staking updates (or should I call them downdates?) I like Jagex for doing what they did. I believe that real world item trading is a bigger problem than most people think and that Jagex probably lost a lot of money off of real world item trading. Think of all the money involved in recovering stolen credit card money and such. Also even speaking to certain governments about this problem, must have been quite big. Sure, the real world item traders might move to another game, but at least it's not RuneScape, and maybe other gaming companies will follow Jagex and do the same kind of thing, without destroying the game too much. Jagex did a very brave (and many would say stupid) move.



I believe in Jagex and hope that the minigames coming out next year will make up for PKing/Staking being removed :)

The Varrock Graphics update. It really changed the classic town we thought that we knew.

Ava's accumulator update to auto pick up arrows/bolts is #1 for me - sped up training range immensely.

GE is a close #2, made a bundle in the first few days of it opening and can now buy very cheap training goods.

Clan Chat falls into 3rd place - I love this!

God Wars... It was one of the two truly high-level updates the whole year. The other was the Barbarian Dungeon, which paled in terms of usefulness and enjoyability. Mithril Dragons are not worth the effort to kill, and the Dragon Full Helm is useless garbage. It looks awesome, but I'd rather use that 50m on a Godsword. I do not consider Dragonfire Shields as a high-level update, because anybody can receive them as a drop. It doesn't take a high level to kill metal (iron/steel) dragons... In order to slay a God Wars boss or do Mith Dragons, you have to be a relatively high level. Granted, it is possible to do Miths at a lower level but you'll end up with one kill a trip.

GWD because I soloed 200m+ in drops. About 60-70% or more of my current bank value is due to GWD. Also to Dragonlordjl, I consider the Dark Bow to be a high level update. It made many(myself included) rush Slayer to 90.


4x Phat owner: Blue, Green, 2x Purple

3100+ GWD bosses soloed.
Solo GWD Drops:
5 Bandos Plates, 4 Bandos Boots, 3 Bandos Hilts, 2 Arma Helms, Arma Skirt, Arma Plate, 3 Arma Hilts, 4 Zammy Spears, Steam Staff, 15 Sara Swords, 6 Sara Hilts, 29 Shards.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

GE mate.

Before it came out, I had to wear armour all the time as I didn't have enough space in my bank. Now in addition to the new space they added in, I have 4 rows of space free.

Either the GE or the GWD, Just because both affected market prices so much.
No witty signatures for me :(

Imma guess noone's gonna say this..



Impetuous Impulses!



Coupled with the GE, it's actully a very good way of making money in the higher levels... well, if you know how to sell them. ;)

Can be looted to obtain a variable item and reobtain the imp jar. If you are insane, it can instead be exchanged for impling jars from Elnock Inquisitor.

Most useful? I'd list 3 things:



(1) The Grand Exchange. Love it or hate it, it's hella useful.

(2) Enchanted crossbow bolts, which turned dragons all over Gielinor into Lumbridge cows.

(3) A specific shout-out for the bone bolt, which is so cheap it's obscene. Power-ranging is now in the reach of everyone.

PvP is not for me
