replying to the main article.

 

True 76king may be the best way of making money but other ways still can be used successfully. You can still buy something with 1m which is easy to obtain. Making money is not always so easy. For example in megaten there is about 3 ways to make money, dungeon runs, plasma farming, selling items. On a dungeon run you are lucky if you get something that is worth over 10k, a run takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour and you get something rare about 1/20 times The best loot i've gotten from a dungeon was worth 75k, the second best was 20k. Plasma farming gets you about 200k per hour if you do it effectively. Then you can sell items which you can sell what you find in dungeons, on monsters, etc. Since you rarely get anything over 10k it's hard to make much money. Generally if you want to buy any good armor it can cost anywhere from 100k to 5m. The rest of the things you can buy are weak weapons and armor. The best weapons in any game shop i've seen cost about 100k and are about as good as the weapons I made myself. Not a lot of options. So while they are not as good atleast they are still present.

Article 3:

 

RuneScape, hardcore? HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. HAHA. HA. ........ Ahem. But really, it's nowhere near hardcore, it only takes a minute to compare to some "hardcore" MMOs to see why. To name a few, EVE online, Darkfall, pre-update Ultima Online. Runescape is fun, but not a competitor in that niche.

I want that scale to settle, i am sick of seeing mid levels with full dragon

 

I enjoy going into pvp and killing 76kers, despite not getting much...=(

 

I did like the articles except the unbuyables, which i had a hard time understanding

I read the first two... I'm starting to get annoyed by these. The first thing I don't like is that they start with the basic assumption: there is major inflation only caused by pvp, and inflation is bad. Then they go off like they know what they're talking about... Making many fallacies. It doesn't make any difference at all what a gp is valued at towards all other goods. Learn2macroeconomics pl0x. Although I was surprised the first article came to the same conclusion I reached in a different thread a little bit ago: inflation will eventually stop 76king if the majority of the drops are gp.

 

I think the biggest problem people have with the 76king trick if the amount of effort it takes, not the "fact" that it's causing inflation.

The statement in the first article that "In the era of 'keeping up with the Jonese' players can't make as much money as PK'ers/(or trickers)." Is incorrect. I could easily make 1m an hour camping mages/abbies or doing sara/arma GWD. Those with 91 rcing, or with the ability to mine rune can as well, as can other skills.

the article about the bad inflation: while you do get insane amount of money, you're not only losing time but potential xp. true, with skilling you may get less money, but important xp aswell.

 

Halloween story: is that the end...? if it is kinda disappointed all died and nobody stopped them lol, hope theres part 3 :wink:

Awesome ending to the Halloween fiction article... notice I said ending?! Yes that's right something not much seen here... Anyone know if people are gonna start finishing their stories?

 

Like what about War Running, A Dying Flame/Saradomin's Sun/Lay Folk, Rat King, When Kingdoms Collapse and Duality? Why??? I think The Siege was the only one kind of finished.

Could anyone explain the 76king concept to me?

 

What the triangle trick?

 

Simple:

 

A kills B

B kills C

C kills A

Problem I see is that the market is not inclined to naturally balance.

 

In fact, it's artificially disinclined, what with price caps and all... seriously, 3 gp difference between filled and empty vials!? Not worth anyones time.

If it is, I apologized. It was not marked as used, so therefore I used it today. Next week I hope to bring you a better DYK.

No I'm going to say it. The things Fetzki said in the 3rd time piece have only enforced the idea that he is an incredibly arrogant SOB in my mind. He really needs to be taken off any sort of Public relations duty.

 

Fixed 76 tricking that the same thing they said last time, and all it did was make it worse from 26 became 76. Jagex needs to have the hot air pumped from there building you haven’t fixed anything you have made it harder but not stopped it. Or is this and endorsement of 76king and a sign that all you are going to do is continue to make it harder to do but never get rid of it?

The reason for that is probably the lunar spells that fill vials. The problem is we have an exp based economy, so many people (probably) use that spell to fill up vials and gain magic exp. Because enough people do this, and do it for exp instead of cash, that's why the difference is 3gp.

 

Or at least that's the most logical conclusion I can come up with. It seems likely though.

 

Something you gotta remember when you look at the RS economy is that it is an exp based economy. That's why almost all production skills are money losers, which is quite contrary to the way the real world works.

I don't know much about 76k'ing, but the newest update to it (that stops you from getting good items if you constantly kill the same person or something) just might stop it. Maybe.

P.S. I've read some of the other stuff Mod Fetzki has said, and he probably should be taken off PR duty.

my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

First article was pretty decent but when I started reading the second....god. I couldn't even get through three paragraphs before closing my browser. It sounded like it was the first paper of a freshman in high school. My head hurts.

Ever since the introduction of the Grand Exchange there has been items where demand has surpassed supply by great margins.

 

Started reading the second article by Master_Smither, Unbuyables, and I couldn't finish it after I read the first sentence. When writing an article you should probably at least make sure the first sentence is grammatically correct.
