Tip.It Times - 16th March 2014


Recommended Posts

Time for a new release of the: >>>Tip.It Times!<<<






Remember, YOU can write an article for the Tip.It Times! You can apply to write full time, or just submit a "one-off" guest article any time you want! Our editors will work with you to ensure that your article is ready for publication. All guest articles can be submitted to @tripsis or any other Editorial Panel member. For more information, including details on how to apply full time, read this forum thread: http://forum.tip.it/topic/209138-how-to-write-for-the-tipit-times/


I'd like to remind people of the rules pertaining to Times threads:


[hide=Read these rules before posting in this thread]

Rampant flame wars have taken control of virtually every week's times discussion topics. The following guidelines must be followed when posting on this topic. Posts that ignore these guidelines will be removed.


1. You are invited and welcome to express like or dislike on articles and a particular author's writing style. It is not acceptable, however, to flame or personally insult an author. Posts that aren't anything but an attack will be removed from the topic.


2. Spelling and grammar errors can be reported to tripsis by PMing her and they will be fixed promptly. It is not necessary to post them on the discussion topic.


3. Off topic posts that do not discuss the content of that week's articles will be removed. This is not the place to discuss the direction of the times, how much you love or hate the times, etc. Off topic posts will be removed.


By keeping within these guidelines, Times discussion topics will mean more for the Panel and Administration than just a place for flame wars. Flame wars do not provide any useful feedback to the Times, which is mainly what we're aiming for with these topics: feedback.


This policy is effective as of now, November 17, 2010. Any posts prior to the creation of this policy may or may not be removed according to the new guidelines.



[hide=Submitting Crossword Puzzles]If you want to submit your own crossword puzzle, it's quite simple.


Simply provide a word list (about 10-20 words) with their corresponding clues. Then, message @The Floating Pen with the word list and it will eventually be published in the Tip.it Times![/hide]


When replying please make sure to clarify the article you are replying to! Thanks!


If you spot any typos or mistakes in an article then please PM them to @tripsis. :)


Enjoy the articles!

The 2nd article was a bit off when it comes to getting 99 construction. It doesn't cost that much if you know what to do. Construction is faily cheap if you do construction daily tasks, and do warbands. They also have that construction dnd every month too.

For your worry about cost of Construction, I estimate that I will get to 99 for less than 100M (I am at 93 already).  Do oak instead of mahogany for grinding levels.  Take advantage of the quest and other "free" XP options.  In particular, the God Statues is over 100K per month at no cost at the upper levels (and 50K for prayer, another expensive skill to train).  Take advantage of the challenges given.  Construction has a very high bonus for the challenges, and the bonus items essentially make it a no cost deal.  The recent Bird and Beast action was an excellent opportunity to gain construction XP.  I gained nearly 3M XP (either building or purchasing through rewards) and abut 6 levels during that 2 months.


Yes, Construction can be very expensive if done in isolation and trying to rush it.  But if done related to other tasks, (especially woodcutting), it can be much less expensive.  If you consider these recent changes and additions, it would appear that Jagex actually answered the cost question even before the article was written.;
