Things in RuneScape that make no sense.

Recommended Posts

not really rune plate was craftable and available in a shop while a dragon plate (or chain) required boss kills and luck.

 

 

Rune plate was considered a quest reward while dragon plate/chain was considered a rare drop reward. They were brought into the game under different methods of balance

Still makes sense for ironman though, as rune plate is a lot easier to get than a dragon plate (except from diango) :P

Considering that all parts required are extremely rare drops from monsters not easy to kill, I think getting a dragon platebody without the grand exchange is nearly impossible.

 

 

^Except for the fact that you cannot visit crandor without doing the quest, and you cannot finish 4 task sets (lumbridge, karamja, varrock, desert). You can also not start Heroes Quest which is required for Legends quest and Throne of Miscellania (so you cannot do MTK). Do I need to continue? :P

Oh of course, how could I forget that?

It's been done numerous times, and I'd assume we have more than a few people on the forum who have had several platebodies worth of shards. They're not that hard to kill once you know what you're doing :v

Only ("only") 19 platebodies could have been made, though.

Another thing that makes no sense

 

Let's add vendor that sells every pickaxe

 

But let's not add a vendor that sells axes.

That's what the grand exchange is for.

 

Also, what vendor are you referring to? I really wanna know.

Most likely Nurmof, who is underneath Falador, and sells Bronze-Rune.

Woodcutting wasn't as big a deal as Mining in classic.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

What also doesn't make sense is a quest unlocking the ability to make all pickaxes, when you probably already have bought the rune pickaxe already anyway. Also what is so special about pickaxes that they cannot be made without extra knowledge? :P

Lawsuits from flying pick heads when they used to break? I don't know :o.

But that is not every pickaxe though. He doesn't sell dragon.

 

That is because dragon and for this matter crystal things are considered special, and many can only be gotten in a different way than normal.

To ensure that the Global Warming quest was slightly less than an absolute waste of time? Except for the whole part about how it totally is~

 

Also, adamantite and runite are hyped up as being crazy strong metals, and yet are considerably worse than both the ancient, visibly moldy armor the barrows brothers wore and steel armor from the east.

Dragon pickaxe didn't exist in Classic.

What steel armour from the east? Tetsu?

 

That's made from 'plate' which is never specified as a specific metal-type and is totally separate from the stainless steel resource.

 

Barrows its kinda debatable about whether it looks mouldy or is just brown since we have never seen it in its original state and the fact Akrisae's set takes on the same appearance and he was only wighted very recently kinda suggests its not decayed so much as it is a side effect of the wight making magics/Sliske imbuing the gear with magical properties.

"Tetsu" does mean iron though, I believe. I would give them the benefit of the doubt if not for this.

 

It's very much a decaying-cloth-sort of brown though :v

The fact that the guy who sells halberds in Tyras Camp also sells dragon halberds totally breaks your argument.

Not in the slightest. How were dragon pickaxes and hatchets added to the game?

erm no, first notice the "many" I said in my sentence. Secondly all those halberts can only be gotten in a different way than other weapons, you need multiple quests for them.

Still makes sense for ironman though, as rune plate is a lot easier to get than a dragon plate (except from diango) :P

dragon plate is impossible to get on ironman :P unless you can get it from motherlode maw thingy. As for why its impossible, you can't enter blast furnace to buy the hammer required for smithing the plate.

And you can get it from MAW.

At the top of that, isn't Hero's Quest and Shield of Arrav required as well? I know that the Legends' Quest is required and that one requires these two.

 

When I played these quests, it was literally impossible to do these quests without another player.

 

I'm not sure if it's changed now.
