No More Proteans

Recommended Posts

Treasure hunter should not be a viable method of getting skills up to 200m. Protean traps, would make hunter even faster than it is already. As we all know, theres not much more endgame content to Rs than either Comping or gaining xp. So I would appreciate it if this stops being easier blk.gif

Thank you. Sorry, still a little new here so I'l have to take some time to familiarize myself with the sectioning on the forum. Any future advice/reminders will also be appreciated :)

since protean traps are only really useful at draconic jadinkos (which in of themselves are only optimal at very high levels), i think jagex considers anything at that point to be acceptable losses since ironman rolled out

Honestly, Proteans seem like the best compromise we'll get. All the other stuff either can be sold for money and messes with skilling supplies market price, is straight up exp like lamps, or is bonus exp you can use for basically anything. At least proteans don't produce actual items (except flatpacks but they're generally cheap anyway.) and require work in using them.

Ye, IKR, Protons are the thing making it too easy.

 

Should give a SHawk outfit, with a piece for each skill sub 200k/h

Proteans boost hunter by 25% for each succesful catch, make smithing afk and free, and make construction insanely fast because of never being able to run out of planks, and having to wait for a butler.

You must have some serious cash to use TH as a method for getting 200mil in a skill lol.

Just as a rough calculation, how much xp do a few hundred protean traps eat through?

I actually did the math for that, I have 1,700 protean traps, it roughly equals between 400-450k xp, but that's only carrion jadinkos with no other bonus xp.

 

*edit*

This xp is based that all traps will be successful, and they will not all be 100% successful, I figured that out pretty quick.

Hmm, so even with several hundred traps every few spins, it would cost quite a bit to take out a chunk of 200M.

Yes, my point exactly. So even with bxp I don't see a huge difference in xp gains.

It's an option available to everyone at the least, and isn't really overpowered. Besides Prismania

grenwalls are like 1500 xp/ea. my 4k traps will last me for 6m xp

It's closer to 1300 each and don't forget you'll catch pawya and lose traps if they get triggered. 4.6m is a more likely estimate.

Yup, when I hunt grenwalls I also catch pawyas, but I don't mind, it's all hunting xp!

Or better yet you can choose to cash out all the protean items you get or drop them.

 

There is an option on not using them you know.

I for one am glad these exist, because RuneScape is far from the top of my priority list.

Cashing out TH items is in general a ripoff because the payout is so low, and in general that's precisely why it is so low. The lucky items are one notable exception, under some circumstances.

That's true, but the OP acted like he's forced to use the protean items which is not the case at all.

 

I did the same mistake two years ago when I made a rant on the squeal of fortune, which is what the treasure chest was back then.

I think OP's point was actually that the presence of the protean items in the first place makes it too easy to get loads of xp for players willing to buy keys, not that he did not want to receive them. But perhaps sometime he will return to tell us.
