Hey guys, I started playing again after I heard the old wild was back, and I have pked a ton, doubling my wealth. Now my membership is about to run out, and I winding down. I'm going to quit....again, although it always seems I come back to this game. For this reason, I want to keep my account in good standing and I'm looking for stuff to invest my money into that is stable, and will basically keep me where I'm at right now in terms of wealth. I currently have 11 mil cash, and two sets of d claws, a total of around 60 mil. Should I keep my money in a cashpile in my bank? I'm worried if I do that I'll be susceptible to inflation, and the cash will lose alot of it's value, where as items will stay around the same value. I used to just buy a BGS before I quit (around 18 mil) but now thats going down fast, same with d claws (lost around 10mil in 3 months). I was thinking maybe a rare, since those only go up... but at 60mil I don't think I can afford one.

So what do you think the best option on the way out is: leave it in coins, or buy items (if so which ones)?

unless u could buy a santa or something

Personally, I'd just keep your bank in cash form so that you can't lose money, especially if you can't afford a rare.

As far as items go, everything seems to be decreasing in value. I'd recommend investing into Manage Thy Kingdom.

Equipment is always risky to leave money in, because it'll always be outclassed eventually. If you kept d claws and another good spec weapon came out, or some way to merc TDs harder than we already can, you'd be in trouble (see: AGS now vs. a few years ago). Coal, pure essence, and rares tend to keep value over time, though they do go through their ups and downs as well.

With the current market situation, I would probably keep pure cash. With statuettes gone we're looking at inflation calming down, which means money will be worth more compared to items. There aren't really any smart investments I can think of that are accessible at 60m.

LOL, your right, I don't like skills, I pretty much came back for pking, and I've had my fun, I have like 11 pures though haha. The thing I worried about if I have a cashpile is from like 2006-2008 ish the prices shot up, whip went from like 1.6 mil to like 4 mil, and I couldn't afford anything because I had cash that had been devalued. Now I see that in general prices are going down, I might just risk keeping it in coins. Think the rs economy will stay on this trend for at least 3 months?

Actually i think the Statuettes are still around as drops from revs, but much more rare so they don't have a big impact on the economy.

OT:

I think you should just keep your cash since you don't have enough for a rare. You could gamble with it and invest in raw materials like logs/ores/bars. But like i said, it's a gamble. They might go up, they might go down.

Ok, I guess the best thing to do is just keep it in coins. I'll wait till d claws are at least back to 25mil... any idea how far they'll rise?

Probs back to their price before everyone sold their claws to pay for BXPW goals. Set them in the GE around there, maybe a little lower, orders for members stuff can still fill while F2P last time I checked. Also put 2.7 mil into MTK and workers on maples/herbs. The cash will last 2 weeks to 80 % approval and bring a decent profit for those 2 weeks of doing nothing.

invest in your non combat skills, seeing a bunch of skills under lvl 50 is such an eye sore

I would say, sell off all of your items, then put an offer in the GE for a santa / green h'ween. It's just as good as keeping it in pure cash, but in the event of a panic dump you may have a chance at a rare. Since rares are bound to go up in the long run, I'd say picking one up would be a good idea even if a crash would be the only way you'd get one.
Worst case - you have the same GP when you come back
Best case - you have a rare that will likely go up

Just invest in skills they never decrease in value :thumbup:

Just buy supplies or rares pretty much are your best bet

I think I just might do this, thanks for the good idea :thumbsup:. I really don't want to put money into skills, I know they don't lose their value... but I really don't like skilling... I play for combat lol. Where can you play MTK, never used it before... there's a quest right?

Last time I checked the boost you get to combat from extremes/turmoil doesn't diminish relative to gp over time. Neither does your ability to do the entire beacon network at 92 firemaking.

No, but Runecrafting and slayer have much lower income than they used to, thieving is worthless compared to before pyramid plunder was released and it was knights of Ardougne all the way to 99, mining is much less prestigious now that there are concentrated ores, smithing was a lot more valuable when r2h was the best weapon... I could go on and on.
