I'm sick of randoms

Recommended Posts

Worst thing about mime isn't the 10 second long wait between emotes (although that does wind me up too), but the endless wait between being teleported there and actually walking the whole two squares forward into the spotlight.

 

This. So. Much.

This is one of the main reasons I actually made this thread. I have a mime random and got mad and started ranting :(

I honestly love the random events. They can come at inconvenient times, yes. But even if they take 15 out of my "busy" schedule, I enjoy it. I actually look forward to thm when doing long training. It give my mind something free to think on.

Yeah, but when doing the maze for the 100th time it's not so much of a distraction, just a bother.

Another thing I wanna point out about the mime. It isn't always easy to use the correct emote. With crying and being angry it's easy, but the emotes that are special it can sometimes be hard for me to know what the correct emote is. Like glass box for example. I often confuse it with something else.

 

And if I get the wrong emote I have to be there for longer which is annoying. The rest of the random events are easy to get right, but it's not always so easy with the mime.

In Runespan, random events get even more annoying. I don't always hunt the yellow wizard right when he calls me, but I do still remember that if I see him I can get free xp. If a random event whisks me away, the wizard "resets" and I have to wait another 10 minutes for one.

Briobe122's 10-step guide to staking:

1. Get cleaned

2. Vow to never stake ever again! (very important)

3. welfare tds and get claws

4. kill glacors til i get boots

5. bandos ffa or more tds til i have around 50m

6. realize that it is far too hard to rebuild using steps 3, 4, and 5

7. give up the vow to never stake again

8. go back staking and make your bank back

9. if you failed at step #8, Go back to step #1

10. if you succeed at step #8, you will eventually feel the need to make money for rich people stuff, have a bad day of staking, then get cleaned anyways

Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

If they took away the harder, time consuming randoms like gravedigger and maze otherwise I don't mind them...

The time spent doing them though is hardly worth the reward and they really don't stop bots...

Remove them I say!

I don't personally find the gravedigger time consuming.

 

If you take all the coffins at once and look at the gravestones and put the coffins into the holes as soon as you see the right coffin for each gravestone, and put the final one in the hole right away it will be done in no time.

...just happened to me where literally within 5 seconds of being called by a yellow wiz in runespan (who was standing right next to me too, free 7.4k xp for zero work) I got a random event and it canceled the wiz. :angry:

Random events take from one to two minutes maximum to complete. I played when random events were more punishing and hated browsing about the internet in another tab only to find my fishing rod gone because of a whirlpool or my pick damaged because of a smoking rock. I for one am glad that new players don't have to deal with those problems.

And then the random event costumes and emotes would become discontinued.

Nty.

Now I wanna state that I do to some extent miss the combat random events. But come to think of it they weren't so good.

 

Rock golems dropped copper ores more commonly than anything while tree spirits dropped bronze and iron hatchets more commonly than anything.

 

The prize you get nowadays from random events are so much more valuable than the crap the combat random events used to drop.

 

I mean I take 21 noted mithril ores or 4 noted grimy irits over one copper ore every day.

 

Though the combat random events were good for combat training. But overall, the things they dropped were crap compared to what random events give us today.

I totally miss when a river troll would bash a bot to pieces and let all the hungry low leveled players take the sharks or whatever he was fishing and sell em haha.

The river trolls were good at bot bashing, I used to sit there with my fingers crossed waiting for the bot to die and practically cheering when they did! :razz: I was caught more than once by the tree spirit and had to take my axe to Bob to be mended, I think my worst was 4 times in one day lol. But it didn't bother me....it was part of the game.

 

I agree with most people though about the maze!

I've read somewhere on the RS forums that they are considering making an option to turn off randoms. However it seems this well be for max players only.

 

I'll try to find the link later on.

I just wish randoms were interesting again. Not just yay free 400-900 xp for slayer or something. I liked river trolls and such. It made fishing actually interesting and it made afking a little bit dangerous. They should have had better drops though, making the worth fighting. And all the randoms are ancient content that has been obsolete for years. At least add new ones to make people actually not hate them or just remove them. They do absolutely nothing but piss people off. but knowing Jagex they won't be doing anything about it ever.

I have gotten used to randoms, and the free xp they give, but they can definitely be annoying and a real nuisance, especially if you get them at crucial times. What I think Jagex needs to do, honestly, is simply introduce a few newer ones, even just one or two (if nothing, will add variety, and stop bots for a few weeks). Also a bit more variety in the pirzes wouldnt go amiss...

 

The maze is the worst one imo...

I hate almost all of them. Especially now that I'm training cooking I'm getting them nearly hourly and it's pissing me off.

Haha I actually forgot how annoying random events once were. And they were like every 40 minutes too. I guess the gravedigger and maze aren't so bad in comparison.

I wonder how people will get their costumes and random event emotes, then? :eek:

Well, I really love getting 22 mithril ores for doing some quick task, if random events are removed I will no longer get 22 mithril ores without mining them.

 

Ah well.

What are you talking about? We still have the squeal of fortune which give you medium and small xp lamps as rewards and both very common.
