Please understand the following.
-NEX armor does not cost what the ge price is
-It is like old phats, ge low, real price is high.
-Torva set in ge, 500-750m, real price is 2-5b.

No offense, where are you getting these comments that it's GE price? Everything I've heard on this forum has them much higher than their GE price.

I have seen multiple posts about people saying stuff like "Instead of buying a arcane, spend 500m and get torva!" and multiple comments such as this.

I think what you're misinterpreting is the people who said "Don't get a Divine, get a Pernix Body instead."

Also, this should probably be moved to rants.

He wants someone to help him with his reading comprehension skills :rolleyes:

DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
...
It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).

I think you should know that I'm quitting Runescape as of now. I've had a longstanding goal to obtain some of these armor sets for around five to seven hundred million gp, and now that I know I can't it just takes the fun out of the game. Cheers, thanks for ruining it for me.

Wat.

These items are so grossly overrated it's not even funny. With the exception of using Pernix to kill Nex, these items are the best definition you will ever get of "luxury item." There is literally no place where the use of Torva justifies its obscene pricetag. Solo GWD? Bandos armor is almost as good and is like 20 times cheaper. PvP? Have fun getting DoS'd (or glitched out) for your items. Virtus gets a nod because it is fairly useful for Corp Beast, but even then, that is a niche use.

Set your sights on an Elysian. It's a lot easier to obtain (last I checked it was around 590m) and has more uses than Torva/Virtus/Pernix.

OMG. I just spent every day ever since Nex came out grinding out money just so i could buy full Torva at GE. MY GOALS ARE RUINED.

Seriously though. I've never seen anyone mention that any Nex armor went for GE unless it was out of sarcasm. Even if people do, it can't be often enough for you to justify making a thread for it.

It's great you know what you're talking about rustiod. Everything you've said is 100% accurate a true.

That being said...your a [bleep]ing [bleep] douchebag, and none of your advice will ever (or should ever) be taken seriously because of it.

disregard good advice because the giver is a douche

THAT MAKES YOU A BETTER PERSON

Well 1 torva piece is under 500m and the set is lingering just under 2b, 2-5 is being quite generous.
