Before the Trade Limit update.......

Recommended Posts

What was the best/most expensive item or items you found on the ground (not including drops) before the trade limit went into effect? For me, someone must have accidentally dropped over a mil in coins on the floor in Catherby Bank. Someone also died another time when I was at bronze dragons and I got a whip, dragonhide armor and some other stuff. What about for you all, what have you picked up off the floor that someone else dropped?

I walked up on some noobs death pile. D long, warrior helm, rune plate and legs, some swordies. This seems like the type of thread that will turn into another rant about the trade limits...

I always gave back just about everything I got from death drop piles, so not much at all...

 

 

 

Perhaps a couple of shark? I got a lot of unids that way though.

I managed to get some rune plates a few times, but nothing really bigger than that.

Once I was at barrows and someone died, but I wasn't the only one there so like 5 people went for his pile of loot. I got a d scim and a few sharks I think, but he dropped a ton of other things too that the other people picked up.

 

Best gift I ever got pre-trade limits was a fury ammy from my best rs-friend. It was when a fury was around 5m ;P

I almost looted a purple phat back when they were only worth 20m. The guy was cutting willows and got attacked by a random and died. Everyone jumped on the pile but all i managed to get were his purple gloves. Some low level got the phat and sold it to the guy's friend for for 100k :x I was poor back then so i couldn't top that offer :lol:

Some guy died running through ankous. The drop I remember was the 11k fire runes. I still have way more fire runes than all my other runes put together. The runes I use are always replaced by various monster drops eventualy.

 

 

 

I think I might have gotten 100k-200k selling the other stuff too, but I think I kept alot of teh stuff (mostly runes anyways, like a couple hundred of a few types).

I remember getting karil's top and a d sq off somebody when mith dragons came out, obviously you can guess by the sq he didn't bring an antifire shield.

I managed to get a rune square and ruby amulet back in 2002. I've gotten other drops, but really, none can beat that, not even from a value stand point, but from the sheer awe of it.

I saw a noob drop trading next to cannons near Lumbridge bank and managed to take whole blue mystic set (gloves, boots, top, bottom, hat).

 

 

 

Then there was a player near that bank chest in duel arena, and I was only near him. He was walking around... I think that he was quiting when piles of items appeared on the ground. Got ~15 Lava Batllestaffs (They were like 50k each, but never sold those... hahah), several mystic items, warriors helm, 2 rune warhammers and other stuff... Some players noticed drops and came. I can't remember what they got. :roll:

One time I got a fury, glory, ROW, and some other stuff like P pots from some guy who apparently died at Abberant Spectators.

 

 

 

Another time I got black helmet (g) while I was mining, cuz the rock golem thing killed the guy.

 

 

 

And then my favorite one is when a guy accidentaly rick clicked and attacked me at Wildy agility course. I had my ddp++ spec already set, so when he accidentaly attacked me I speced him and kill him, and I got his DDP++ and black d'hide top and bottom lol :D.

I was training in the Draynor sewers once, and found a pile of items appear on the ground. I went to pick them up, and grabbed 3 rune woodcutting axes, 400 noted yew logs, and 400k in cash.

 

 

 

It turned out I had intercepted a drop trade between a macroer and his main account.

Sara legs and some random rune items from a merchanter that didn't pay attention in world 1, he was too busy autotyping to notice a drunken dwarf who needed over 10 minutes to take him down.

 

 

 

I've had 2-3 whips, and several dragon and barrows armour pieves from stupid people who didn't bring antifire's to dragons, or got DC'ed at barrows, whenever I could I gave back what I had saved from the greedy looters who obviously weren't planning on giving anything back.

I was just walking around in lumbridge swamp when I saw a lvl 3 standing in the same spot not doing anything. So I decided to spam click under him, unfortunatly someone else came alone and got the drop trade. Which she showed in trade and it turned out to be 3mill gp. That was when I was a noob trying to save for my full rune.
