So, everyone knows the Sling had unlimitted ammo & was pretty decent when you compared it to Iron&Bronze Knives.
I'm a cheapskate & I'm thinking about going for 99 Range using the Sling just because I can.
But, unless I can get to 99 all the way with the Sling, I'm not bothering going for it.
I'm thinking though just because there's so many 99 Rangers out there crying "OH MAN A FREE WAY TO GET 99 RANGE!? JAGEX WTF IS YOUR PROBLEM I DIDN'T GET THAT ADVANTAGE SO NOBODY ELSE SHOULD EITHER! I HATE YOU & NOW I'M GUNNA' QUIT UNLESS YOU REMOVE IT!!!", Jagex might actually consider these whiny lil' [bleep]es advice yet again & make some changes to it.

So.
Do you think Jagex will nerf/tweak the Sling?

Misleading title.

1. "My ear's in a cup, I guess that doesn't count..."
2. "So heyyy, that's a pretty reasonable reaction huh?"
3. "So you up for NAFTA?"
4. "That went exactly how I wanted it to."

Um, who cares? Use it until it does possibly get nerfed?

Finally on here to update that I have officially quit! It's been fun.

Has this guy ever made a good topic? The only reason you would use a sling is because you want to be inefficient and hit low.

I second this.

Edit : I'm pretty sure Jagex won't nerf this. It was made to make it easier for new players to train range & mage.

They should have joined back in RSC. Gaming was a hell back then. Aah.. talking about RSC is like talking about right after WWII. Horrible, but sweet at the same time.

I could get 99 ranged with hand cannon and make 500M so... You being cheap has nothing to do with the fact that you'll be losing ALOT of money getting 99 ranged with the sling.

Isn't it sort of half respectable, like on Yaks and stuff, 'cause that'd save a bit, possibly.

Personally, I think Jagex needs more items like the sling and more spells like wind rush. Crappy spells/ranged weapons that don't need runes/ammunition.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

It's not terrible when you're Ranging using Knives which many of you keep overlooking; the Range Str Bonus come close to eachother.
& Who knows, maybe it's yet another attempt to get Merchants to stop hoarding knives for profit.

WHAT? Unless you are a complete newb, it's a terrible range weapon. Things like broad bolts and arrows are ALWAYS better at any level that counts, you just have to understand that the time you waste when using an inferior weapons is a considerable loss of money when compared to most other ranged methods. This is exactly why hand cannon, one of the most expensive ranging methods(4th behind onyx, dragon bolts and rune knives, actually, of the usable methods), is the best for frost dragons.

All his topics go on for pages...go troll somewhere else.

They won't nerf the Sling, because it's already in a nerfed state.
It's not worth using after like...5 range, because you'd save time using a better weapon, and time is money. So using it would waste money.

Xpx,

Please re-read the part about comparing the Sling to Knives.
The Sling pretty much provides free Knives.

Undo,

Go kill 100 men with iron knives and measure the xp/h and then repeat

and then kill another 100 men with iron knives and measure xp/h and then repeat.

Then post your results and we can have a proper discussion instead of a huge flame war.
