Were Random events always this generous?

Recommended Posts

I'm used to getting 76 coins and the such...

 

71% on maze btw, so really not even too good.

 

Thoughts?

 

EDIT: Today I just got 912 Chaos runes from a 68% one... Sorry no pic.

71% is good. I usually get at least less than 65%, making no mistakes.:mellow: still, that money is pocket change.

Mazes have always been the most generous random due to the increased difficulty and time investment in solving them. Given that, 71% is damn good.

I was in f2p while the random happened. I don't think 108k is pocket change to most f2p'ers, lol.

Mazes aren't even too difficult. If you are watchful you'll notice there are only a set amount of possible maze spawn points (2-3 in my experience) and the actual layout of the maze never changes. With enough trials and a little memory, you can learn how to do the maze quickly and effectively.

Yes, mazes always have been (if you get 70+%).

 

The key is to click on the map as a door starts to open - you don't need to wait for the door animation to finish.

A thread has no discussion value because it doesn't include calculus, DPS, Nex, etc. right? :rolleyes:

 

I like how Jagex took out all the stupid randoms like rick turpentine, drunken dwarf, and made randoms "harder" but just under annoying and the increased rewards from even the easier randoms are always nice. I mean, 3 snaps from a sandwich lady which took 20 seconds = :thumbup:

Ooh. I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip.

Mazes were never generous to me, in my experience. Though that may be because I keep finishing around the 60% mark...

 

I wish we still get an option to pick for an xp lamp, of course the maze lamp being better than the other randoms (say 100x skill level, compared to 15x for school and 10x everything else).

Were amitoz'es posts/thread always this pointless?

 

The answer to both questions is yes, by the way.

Back before the overhaul of the randoms (bring back ents... for the love of god...), I used to get these a loooot, and they've always treated me well.

 

Got one earlier, finished with 82%, and got around 115k. :mrgreen: (no screenie because I thought it was insignificant...)

You joined this forum more than 3 years ago, and have played for god knows how long.

WHY are you asking something you clearly would know the answer too.

How do you even get close to a 76gp reward for regular random events?

I have got 150k reward from a maze once. So no, that reward is nothing very special. However, maze is the most generous random, as have been stated above ^^

The maze reward is based on your total level from what I know, maybe p2p/f2p too.

That's the reason why you think that the maze random is more generous now then it was before.

Back then you were a noob, no good reward. Now you're high level (maybe...) and you get good stuff.

Quick! Post pictures proving that they were always this good! Oh wait, OP doesn't care about evidence.

 

OT: Best I have ever gotten was 70%, and that was around 100k. I love mazes, free money is always a plus.

Mazes are very generous, unlike any other random event, which is a shame. Although of course if done incorrectly generous randoms would flood the market with items, done cleverly (for example with useful but untradeable items or minigame reward tokens) it would make randoms a pleasure to do.

 

Of course, mazes are especially generous if you are behind someone who knows that random very well ^_^ .

I would pay 200k to skip the maze and get no reward, so no it is not generous. It is a waste of time. Every decent bot can deal with randoms so all they are is a nuisance.

Mazes used to be better for me, then again"back then" I was able to get 80%+... These days I get 75+ if I try.

I think it's impossible at this point to get over 80%.
