24-Apr-2013 - Charm Sprites: Catch Them If You Can!

Recommended Posts

It's nice that they removed the trees, ever since the graphical update reached that area it's been a pain to click on the sprites and not cut trees.

 

Does the yaktwee stick get a graphical change when it gets updated? I want to show off my catches but can't access a computer to check.

 

Also, for efficiency freaks: at what level does it become a waste to get the catches for the 5% xp boost?

 

Do the dailies, then it will be more then worth it ;D!

 

Bout 6 dailies of these ought to cover it =3

Finished and got comp back.

 

Heres some numbers if anyone cares:

 

1000 Sprites

 

656 G sprites

237 T sprites

107 S sprites

 

Shards

 

089 Gold

179 Green

448 Crimson

284 Blue

 

73 Mystic

 

One mystic can be used with 1-4 normal colored shards to make a whole charm. Mystics comes with normal shards rarely.

Did about 5 minutes to get a rhythm going, and then a 5 minute experience test. 8,270xp, or 99,240 extrapolated to an hour. In total charm wise I ended up with 15 crimsons, 9 blues, 7 green, 4 gold. So not exactly great for charms either

 

Also, my arm hurts. To keep a good constant rate going you're moving all over the screen and clicking non-stop (Throw>detonate>throw>catch>detonate>throw>catch>etc.).

 

Compared to jadinkos? Way more work for less than half the experience.

 

Possibly on the bright side, they won't completely suck as a daily task anymore.

 

10 minutes to take all that charms? Ok, for my book that's FAST

Eh not overly, using this:

 

 

Crimson equivalents for 80 - 99 summoning

Blue 0.57

Gold 6.75

Green 3.26

 

15 + 9/.57+ 4/6.75 + 7/3.26 = 33.5 CE

 

Which works out to ~ 201 CE per hour, which I guess isn't too bad, except dags + waterfiends are around double that.

If you've completed the Combat Academy, you can now toggle the interface stone it occupies to a quick shortcut to the Quest Journal interface.

 

This would come as I am finishing up 14 quest for my cape. Oh well, tis useful for me. And we still keep the quick tele to a bank deposit box.

100x yes

 

Best part of the entire update.

Not for me--I've completed them both. :boohoo:

Was getting 8-9k exp per five minutes while leveling up yaktwee stick. And then got 12-13k every five after upgrading it.

But the quests can be added/updated, unlikely the combat tutorial will be.

I am surprised that they didn't change the mechanics of capturing them. You should be able to do it in one click instead of having to click the thing on the ground. I mean, what else are we going to do with it if we just shot it at a bush? Just detonate it automatically.

Well, any sprites you've previously caught will not count towards the 1000 count required for the enhanced stick.

 

Still not as bad as the initial Castle Wars fiasco though.

realistically this wouldn't have been possible as it wasn't being tracked

I think it was, there used to be a message telling you when you reached 100/1000/10000 catches I think

Before the update it was possible to right-click the yaktwee stick to view your capture count.

As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapabale of solving approaches zero.

Ensure you are not a social situation.

But it was. It would tell in the Adventure Log how many of each you had caught in intervals of 100, 1000, and 10000 I believe. I had them all complete so this is from experience. That being said they very well could have changed how they were kept track of.

Shame the quest page is still a full screen [bleep]ing pop up. Jagex sure loves these stupid things.

You'll be happy to know that the NIS Alpha has zero of these anymore. (And will soon have a completely reworked quest journal as well)

 

So in a few short months you'll be back to seeing the world around you whilst figuring out what the heck you were just asked to do again.

Well I am really digging the NIS because it has so much versatility. Honestly its such a huge improvement that even a veteran player as myself is a bit in awe and even slightly scared at what I could potentially do for myself.

Sadly the interface beta still doesn't show things like jujus in the buffs/debuffs window. Nor do those things have a timer related to them, I really want that as I hate trying to find ingame chat message.
