If people are looking for good ways to get rid of helms, since they're F2P but need members to get, many F2P'ers are willing to pay a lot for them. Last night I saw 3 people just wandering around the GE asking if people had the helms because they were looking to buy. I think they usually were offering 1-2M, not sure what the 'real' street price is on them, but if you have F2P junk, then you might as well try.


What is f2p junk?

Ergh this is such a poor effort for an update of this magnitude. I only just read about it and gone through this thread.

When they first made this update in the past they made a huge mistake by not making adjustments for initial crowds. So like 5 years later when they release the dragon defender, instead of learning from this they just suddenly allow a dragon defender with no particular effort with the same lameness as before.

There a competitive game and there is just lame gameplay. This is lame gameplay.

Fortunately im not doing anything particually combat related for me to want to rush to get it. So in a few weeks I shaw try to get it.

I also hear people get it fast. I wonder if that was done on purpose due to the crowds.. however that isnt a solution. That just makes for a poor update in general considering there was no new effort needed to try and get the drop.

Seriously all they did was pretty much add a new item to a monsters database and a new type of monster while repeating all past mistakes. What the hell is that meant to be about. Its a dragon item that actually still matters!

Rather continue to play more minecraft atm as it reminds me of why I enjoyed runescape when I first began. I not sure what to say except im disappointed in how they neglected all the possibilities available to make a much better introduction to the game.

I was one of the people who thought it would require some new tokens to get the DD so had none when the update came around, is it worth the time getting some tokens in every activity to get the DD or would it be quicker just to do the best activity for tokens?

I really don't know for sure. When it was crowded it was better to do the activities as they are semi-instanced, and multiple tokens increases the drop rate, slows the drain rate, so you need less kills to get a drop.

Right now it could be either way, just try and see what you like and report back here :P.

I think you get 60 of each (or so) to start out with automatically. When the crowds die down, that's more than enough to get 2+ defenders, if the current drop rate holds.

Even with crowds, if you are good you should be able to make it work.

Of course, luck is a factor.

Where did you hear this? I received none whatsoever for having no tokens at all. Took 150 of each discipline to get two defenders, but I got it when it was crowded.

I didn't hear it anywhere. I had absolutely 0 warrior guild tokens before the update and when I logged on, I somehow had 60 in each minigame.

However it might be that I forgot about some I did have...which would explain this thinking. If it's true that you DO NOT get free tokens, then if you were to just get 50 tokens or so in each minigame on your own (=10 minutes of work?), you'd be set.

Any tokens you had before the update were converted to points across all 5 after the update.

Bananas.

Come to my Clan chat (I'm there if I'm online) if you wish to borrow a Green H'ween mask, Blue H'ween Mask, Red H'ween Mask, or Santa for a reasonable price.
