Ok that's why I though it was strange that it was showing blank! But the Gud chainmail is slightly better than the Rune plate because it gives +20 str but the same armor.

Yep, assuming that's correct that will undoubtedly become a valuable asset for F2P from now on. Depending on how much one needs to farm for it, you could even skip Dragon Slayer now :P.

Apparently the stuff is tradeable, though it won't buy even well over med price for me. Oh well <_<. Stats for that axe:

Probably equivalent to Gravite rapier or Gravite longsword.

It's going to be weird seeing people mix the rune and gud raider chainbody together.  Personally I dislike how endgame f2p content gets released with such an easy minigame (unless it has been made harder since I last played it).

From what I have heard (admittedly, only one friend, but they seem to have some experience, rune armour, and gravite weaponry), you may be underestimating the difficulty of goblin raids, and also the frequency of drop. I'll have to try it out for myself soon.

It's easy. You don't even need food if you use protection prayers. If you're in a group, the fight lasts about 20 abilities. The only thing that makes Gud items rare is the droprate and only being able to do it once every 30 minites.

That's great :D I just wonder how they're going to fix it though, as they kept saying before that it would require alot of work :mellow:

i still don't know how they screwed up so hard that they couldn't undo one modifier, unless it was more than one, in which case, WHY

It was more like they didn't care, because it was f2p.

It was a quick, rushed fix to add it in the first place, and sometimes taking out a bit of code is like playing with a house of cards. My guess would be it was something closer in the middle, i.e, two or three hours of coding when they got down to it, but just kept deferring the project because they had no extra coders available or because it was lower priority.

So an old RS F2P player posting here, quit in early 12 and briefly checked upon the game for awhile. However I haven't done in ages now, how is RS atm? Assume you guys must still like otherwise you wouldn't be here :) .

 

Saw the reboot of old RS too, seems pretty cool but love for RS seems driven by nostalgia. So will the OSRS last? Also not being able to transfer character is kind of annoying. Saw they added GE, which I have conflicting feelings about on the one hand it was amazing but on the other hand so of my best memories came from selling stuff at banks and haggling, so overall I guess I disagree with it.

 

Sad to see Green H'ween mask is at 80m when I worked my ass off with a friend to get it for like 140m before we quit lol.

 

EDIT: Just going on to check my account, you now have to download it?!?!

 

EDIT 2: WTF? I have to change my name?

Firstly, OSRS is being updated, so it will last quite a while.

You don't have to download it, click on the link below the screen you are on to play it in the browser. You cannot play it on some browsers and on mac, not because of Jagex but because some browsers dropped the support of Java.

Yes you have to change your name if you have been inactive for a long time (and probably have not been members), so they could free up names

I tried playing it through browser but it just told me to download it, I just downloaded Java too.

 

Is cooking lobster with cooking urns still the best method for cooking?
