Torstols

Recommended Posts

I've got around 50m, or at least it was 50m, worth of torstol herbs/seeds. Obviously the prices were dropped because of bxpw, but I hear a new minigame, or maybe a new reward for an old one(I haven't really played in a few weeks), makes torstol seeds easy to come by. I could use some information on the minigame, or some speculation on whether torstols will go back up.

Thanks.

I don't know of a way to come by easy torstol... they are around 25k now, slightly falling. I think they can stay at this price for a long time.

edit: just checked. i was wrong, sorceress garden doesnt give torstol

 

hmmm juju farming pots maybe?

 

found this on another site: "After the Ring of Wealth update on 15 March 2011, the price of torstol fell, due to the large noted torstol drops added to the rare drop table."

Torstol prices were influenced most recently by Temple Trekking, as the rework made it possible to get the herb itself if you chose that reward set.

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

Temple trekking with the old torstol price was about 1.5M / hour..

 

 

 

Anyways, I just managed to sell 1k torstols, for 20k each. - They stayed in the GE for almost a week at that price though.


First they came to fishing

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

 

Then they came to the yews

and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

 

Then they came for the ores

and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

 

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

And with pretty reliable frequency, too. Atleast I seemed to get them often. I don't know a lot about how to set up calculations to determine the actual rate of getting them, but if someone wants, I would be more than willing to try and help collect data. Come on you math wizards, help a girl out?

Seen many bots in the last week in guthans farming mutated jadinko guards. They drop 1-4 noted torstol nearly as much as other high end herbs

They only drop 1 noted herb at the time, and it is much rarer than other herbs. Have killed over 3k jadinko guard/male and have had somewhere around 2-4 torstols from them..

Temple Trekking "drops" is random statistics based on the % completion on each journey. A friend of mine think it's a flat percentage in terms of distribution, so you may have simply gotten lucky as a result. Obviously, without stealing code, there's no way for us to figure out exactly what is what. :P
