Strange Rock Frequency

I stood in my house for hours getting my construction rocks <_<

 

Did you try to get them back to back?

Myth. You can get them both in as close as two minutes just standing there.

 

Sure you can, but switching skills between rocks has been confirmed to be faster by Jagex. There's only fishing, mining and RC that I don'T bother to switch because they are much easier to get, but I've noticed for other skills that switching will reduce the time to obtain rocks.

Wha? No, I do believe they specifically refuted that.

From a previous thread on Shattered Heart, credits to smellysocks, from the maxed out forums...

 

The probability switches (either up or down) when you receive a strange rock.

 

Hope that answers your question

 

Edit: Hmm... rereading again and again, it doesn't make that much sense, perhaps an example will help:

 

You go fishing... your probability of getting a rock is 1 in x. You gain a rock from fishing, your probability of gaining a second rock from fishing is 1 in 2x.

 

However, your probability of gaining a rock in... say.. herblore is still 1 in x. If you gain that rock in herblore, your probability of getting a second rock from herblore is 1 in 2x, but your probability of getting your second fishing rock is back to 1 in x.

 

Hopefully THAT will make more sense....

I went from 61-69 construction without a single strange rock

 

it's because you don't know hwo to obtain a construction rock...you need to "not" be in construction mode.

 

While waiting on a construction rock, it is possible to create teleport tablets in normal mode. Let the butler get your soft clay.
