Wow, three articles. Looking forward to reading them, well done and having so many this week.

Firstly, love the RSC pictures.

Okay, for Left-Clicking for Fun and Profit, I largely agree. Actually it should be a toggle option to right click all monsters. There is no evidence however that it was ever an anti-botting measure. As far as I know it was just a noob protection method dating back to the beginning of the game.

For the Melee bias article, you rail against the combat formula. However what you see as a disadvantage is really just a myopic view of combat. Many players in fact use what you've described to their advantage when creating pvp accounts.

Comparing a dragon scimitar to broad bolts isn't really fair either. Broad bolts have poor dps. If you used something more efficient like even rune darts you would have far better dps. Don't take your failure to invest in good ammo and use it to say the triangle is imbalanced.

Rather then talk about how melee has higher hits, it would be fairer to talk about how melee is cheaper for players in a certain category.

As for your high level comparison, keep in mind that a person with 99 range, 99 defense, 99 constitution and rigor would never got toe to toe with a maxed melee character. The ranger would be able to hold their own versus a melee account their level. Add on top of that that the range tank could have 99 magic and hybrid without gaining combat levels and all of the sudden they become deadly in PvP.

PM me in game anytime

If you're talking about why both articles had the same article in it, that was a hitch during the release today. I went and did a Jagex today, the release has been rather buggy :P

I'd almost given up on my Did You Know? appearing in the Tip.it Times. Found that out while gearing up for updating the chaos elemental guide back a month or two ago, just in case anyone wanted some context.

Sig by me, in MS paint, but I'm still working on it.
Suggestions appreciated

This guide is as concise as a gourmet's handbook with the guidelines of "Pick up fork, stab food, insert into your mouth, then chew".

I'm absolutely loving the Forever Runescape series. <3: Well done, Kamykazee. I can't wait for part 3.

...there will be a part 3, right?

I also love the Forever Runescape series. Great read.

All 3 articles this week, were entertaining.

I do favor the left click on ALLl monsters. The reasonning, at first, was understandable, but the game, and the people have
evolved. Unless Jagex still want to protect new players, the left click should be available for all, or at least an option.

And could they please put d bones on top, when picking up drops, instead of steel or iron bars :)

(And sure hope it's the 2nd of nth article in the Forever Runescape, really enjoy that series)

The release of a new part will always depend on wheter the previous was received positively or not. There would obviously be no point in releasing part 3 if part 2 was viewed with dismay. Seeing current reactions i think it is safe to say the next one will be released, however i'd like to state that i will take on a somewhat different topic before part 3, simply to break up the routine and monotony of the series. I say 'somewhat different' because it still relates to classic, but it will be released under a distinct name, different style and will be about....well you'll see. For that i am afraid there is little hope that it will come next week, as i want to take time to make sure it sounds exactly how i want it to.

After part 3, i'll see if and how i want to further develop the subject, though i can guarantee it won't reach Part Nth. That's just because i hate repetitive titles; it will probably be named something else.

Thank you for reading :)

Forever RuneScape: <3 seeing those oll-timer pictures. And that LINE at Oziach's house... oh-my-god...

Left-clicking for Fun and Profit: I agree. Left-clicking wins. In my opinion, all monsters with their own Lair (KQ, KBD, Mole) should be left-clickable, and the monster of your current task should be too. Anti-bot measure: have a super-powered non-aggressive Tribrid-dragon spawn at random times at places bots tend to form groups with the same name as the objects (Yew Tree, Green Dragon, Blue Dragon etc) in that area. Would be fun seeing a bot getting 1-hitted to death.

Does RuneScape have a pro-Melee bias? Yes, I think it has (though it has gotten better over the years). For a good equalization, the writer of the article might better have used the optimal equipment at certain Milestone levels (1, 50, 99) to see the progress.

Agreed. I absolutely love to venture back into the past. I had overlooked the first article and reading it almost knocked me out by all the nostalgia.
Keep the articles coming! :)

Another very well written article on classic runescape. You do a great job of reviewing the past without just regurgitating the commonly known stuff. Brings back happy memories of wasting my adolescence, haha

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Left clicking business:

Why just monsters? Why not have all the stuff you can click have customizable interfaces? For instance: pouches... or more important: letting me turn off that make-x/all rubbish? Everything should be customized so that if you want to right click, you right click. If you want to be able to left click, you can say so! Options are good.

So, yes, I agree that they should change the left clicking.

Also: That history is fascinating. Good compilation or early 2001 stuff...

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading the historical articles. In addition, the left-clicking article was pretty interesting, a random and unique article [those are my favorites]. Of course RS is pro-melee. Article was still good.

KAMYKAZEE <3!!!! Great second article! I wish i remembered where I was when that line was formed for Oziach. That looked hilarious! I do remember Karamja big time as I was hugely into fishing back then. It was my top skill as it is now (though been too lazy to 99 it yet). The pier there was the central location for leveling up fishing then everyone would run back to Draynor ro make certificates for sale in the Draynor shopping area. Raw fish certs were 2k each and cooked 1k each. SO many people wanted raw fish to cook right in Draynor for their cooking levels and to eventually enter the Cooking Guild.

When did the three color combat system change from red, white, yellow to red, yellow, green?

Good stuff writers and editors. I enjoyed them.

I've particularly been enjoying the forever articles, keep it up. :)
