Double XP Weekend - 1st/2nd November

Recommended Posts

 

1.  Introduce Vic's shop.

2. People swap all their bxp for bxp in slow, nonbuyable skills

3.  Announce bonus working over double xp.  People now want bxp in buyables to save money.

4. Run a prismania before bxp weekend.

5. ???

6. Profit

Are they running a prismania?

 

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.

I wonder if the xp multiplier is going to gradually go down like in the past or if it'll be a constant x2 xp the full two days. I'm torn between trying for 99 Summoning (96) and 99 Crafting (94). If it's going to gradually go down then I'll probably do Summoning first then however far i can get with Crafting. If it's steady the full two days then I'm not sure....

It is a Double Exp Weekend, which means 2x exp for the entirety of the weekend

It's better to do summ first, because there will be people placing portable deposit boxes @ Taverley obelisk as soon as the weekend starts.

So bring the noted seconds/etc and sell them to the shop, buy them back then use the deposit box to bank the pouches made? I imagine that would get quite expensive.....

Just tested out the summoning seconds I'm using. Pik buys granite (500) for 1gp each and sells it for 1 gp each, so no loss. The other seconds are too much loss for me being water orb (90/300), tortoise shell (300/1000), and rune bar (1500/5000).
