Granitemace is valid as much as granitemaul in this week's crossword as they had almost the same special attack according to http://runescape.wik...Special_attacks

I didn't either and when I looked it up, I knew why I would have had no idea about it xD

(Trying to be subtle) Hint: It's used to understand how RS and monster weaknesses will work, for new players.

Answer


The other one I had no idea about was the best melee weapon to train with pre-EoC?

And yes, this was quite fun! Future content like this would be aprpeciated! :D

I liked doing the crossword puzzle, but somehow I got completely stumped with the question "This magical staff is dropped by creatures of icy origin.".

I was able to get the low level weapon that changed elements question, as it's a handy bank saver in that you can have that one item instead of different weapons of that element.

@Crossword Puzzle: Weapons

I really enjoyed the crossword puzzle! I had to think for a bit on a few entries, but I managed to solve it.

(Trying to be subtle) Hint: It's used to understand how RS and monster weaknesses will work, for new players.

Answer


Don't think it was ever available on the Island-- it came about when Jagex reworked Burthorpe with the Troll Warzone, if I remember right. I could be wrong as I only visited RS2 version Tut Island with some TIP zombie Halloween event.

Very handy indeed, but when Rune Mysteries was redone with Adrianne, I decided to keep the Tower version as I thought it looked spiffier.

@Rejected Skill Ideas

Is this a satire?

I am somewhat shocked that the “Seduction” skill wasn’t mentioned in the article. I mean, after all, it *was* actually mentioned at Runefest as a possible new skill a few years ago prior to the release of Dungeoneering and it has been the brunt of numerous jokes since.

Well - ok - not as much as SAILING, but still ...

:rolleyes: :lol:

I have a feeling a Seduction skill would involve a lot of rejection. :P
