They should have said this when they released the bxp swap

You have got to be kidding me. I just swapped all my BXP yesterday and now we find out about this today... This is crazy, they have never done this before.... Two things are about to happen.

 

1) many people are going to rage when they see this

2) JAGEX is going to take it down and say they didn't mean to say it in the first place and we will be back to no BXP on BXP weekend.

I'm not so sure they're going to revert it.  They are already having other major changes to this one such as including Summoning after all.

I suppose hoping to sell spins might be part of it, but it still seems a little cynical.

Not yet, that I know of.  But he's saying that's what he expects them to do.

I'd guess now; time has passed from the initial announcement for the hype to die down a bit, and it's not close enough to happening for prices to spike again.

But that's just my guess, and I don't follow prices or merch at all, so take that with a grain of salt.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Over the next couple of weeks.  Be patient and look around for deals :P.

So attaching orbs and getting craft xp?  If so, just a tip: don't sell them over BXPW, you'll lose a ton since everyone will be dumping alch items :P.

I will most likely alch-fish the products once I'm done crafting these, so I don't need to worry about the item crashing.

 

Besides, an item's not gonna drop very far beyond its high alch price xD

Alright, cool :thumbsup:.  But if this xp weekend is anything like previous ones on the GE, people's jaws will drop when the see certain items' real price in the GE at times :P.
