Would it be wrong to turn into a DIY'er now? I've used the G.E as you can see, to buy 60 cook and smith, but I haven't used it for much more than that... I got like 400k from a friend in my bank, but if it wouldn't be wrong, I could give all my stuff away, except for like 1k iron ores and 120 gold ores I've mined myself in the last few days.


A simple NO would help me, no need to get all emotional for me asking if it would be wrong if I went over to DIYIng now, since I've.. pretty much broken any rule a DIYer can break D:

No, a DIYer is someone who does everything themselves. Which means no ge, no trading ( except heroes + shield of arrav), no teams, no pking, duelling etc.
Also, depending on their rules, they may or may not do minigames which cannot be done solo.

So for example, if they want bandos, they solo bandos till they get it.
If they want whip, they wait till 85 slayer and get it as a drop.

Its a style of playing, no one is going to shoot you if you dont start an account from scratch and DIY it from there. Just do what you want to do

Yeah but I've used the G.E and stuff. :(
I'll just give all my stuff to a friend later, or to some random, then start over. :)

You don't have to be a full-fledge DIY-er either, you can just tend to do things for yourself. In other words, play the game, doing what you want.

DIY is a thing you do, not a thing you are. Going to the GE once does not mean you can never DIY anything ever again. If you're gonna do it, do it.

Why do people want other people's opinions about whether their play style is right or wrong.

Have fun while playing the game. Or don't. Doesn't matter either way, it's all up to you!

As an answer to your question, sure you can.

No, I wouldn't consider it a legit diy'er. Really it's up to you, but if you're going to go DIY you might as well do it legit from the start.

No staked dueling*

Sorry, had to throw that in there. They do clue scrolls, yes? Clue scrolls occasionally require use of the duel arena, yes?

Anyways, personally I think it'd be better to just make a new account to DIY but it's up to you. If you get to a respectable level DIY-ing from now on, it will still probably look pretty impressive.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

I'd say ignore the skeptics. If going DIY at this point is how you want to do it, and will have fun doing so, then go for it. :thumbup: RS is a game, after all. Far too many people are worried about doing things the "right" way and forget to enjoy themselves.
