Circus - is Jagex being deliberately nasty?

But according to my calculations it's impossible to get even Clown without sacrificing experience

 

 

 

Do you reckon Jagex were being deliberately nasty when they thought this up?

 

Or did they just not bother to do the maths?

 

 

 

My calculations on circus points

 

1 successful trick at each level: 719

 

5 clothing pieces that give points: 25

 

10 emotes: 30

 

Preferred emote for location: 75

 

Preferred trick for location: 75

 

Total: 924

 

Then there is the difficult question of audience requests... you get 15 points if you do a request immediately afterwards, so starting low level and working up, one might be able to average 3 requests, so 45 points average. If one was very lucky one might be able to do 5 requests, so 75 maximum.

 

924 + 75 = 999 points

 

Clown requires 1,001 points

LOL good question.... I have been to circus ONCE so I haven't really experimented with points so I can't say

 

 

 

Haven't been again because I could do the level 99 tricks at level 50 in that skill... And I got the 2nd best costume so I haven't bothered returning since :roll:

Look at it this way. You can either:

 

A) Get good exp and no clothing rewards

 

B) Get clothing rewards and less exp

 

I really don't see a problem with that.

Get the darn clothing first, then go for the darn EXP happily ever after.

They most likely did that on purpose, but not because they were being nasty. It's simple, either you get the costume with a decrease in experience or you don't get the costume and you make a bit more experience.

 

To my knowledge the costumes don't give any special help, right? So if you really care about having to sacrifice some experience then just don't. You won't die if you can't wear a certain piece of clothing...

EDIT - Signature far exceeds our sig limits but since it's so colourful you can keep it.

Look, I've helped out with that thread you mentioned. Yes, it's annoying. But hello? you can't get everything, or else it'd be a complete bust. It's simple. Just like the rest of the game - rewards or experience? Example: When training combat, should you go for AZ's or something with slower experience gain and better rewards?

I thought you simply had to do the two hardest emotes on each course over and over..?

 

Thats gotten me ringmaster and great xp..

 

 

 

If you do that, you'll have too many points to get the clown set(which is frikken hideous by the way). Clown is the hardests et o get, but it's not that hard...

This lack of discussion value..disturbs me.
English is the only language on this forum.

If you use another language, you need to include a traduction

Oh wow, I hate everything -.-

Death kinda scares me.

your obsession with phallic objects shows quite clearly in your artworks.

Ffs, someone put this in their sig.

It's hard to intentionally get all the pieces, or at least it was for me...but that was before most people knew most things about most of the circus mostly, I think.
