Elemental & Rare Drop Tables

 

Load up on better loot this week as we improve elemental and rare drop tables.

 

Winners in our drop table improvement poll earlier this year, elementals are long overdue some better loot rewards.

 

Now, the following enemies will drop more useful, valuable and relevant loot for today's RuneScape:

The rare drop table has had some love too, bringing it up to date for today's game and economy. You'll start to see more lucrative and useful items dropping from monsters across the game, or greater quantities of items you'd have got before.

 

Braving the elements or seeing that glint from your ring of wealth should now be a more exciting and rewarding prospect than ever before. Enjoy the improved loot, and join the discussion on the forums.

[bleep]ing Chris L. They've officially turned Araxxor into a D and D, instead of a boss, and the drops are still crap. Half the time, QBD chests are better than Araxxor chests, and you can loot about 4-6 QBD Chests in the time it takes for 1 Araxxor Chest. [bleep]ing lame.

I know right, it was hard enough for new players. But now it will make it even more scary towards players who haven't beaten him much, and this just gives the cake to PvM'ers who can still easily do them.

 

It should be that pre 1k kills should be how it was yesterday, and the current changes should be post 1k kills.

Meanwhile, I can guarantee you that these new drop tables for aquanites and such generate close to 2m an hour for basicly no skill/effort.

It's Chris L's style, by the way. When one of his pet projects (bosses usually) has their profit slash over time (because that's what happens to all bosses), he doesn't address any of the real issues, such as making Nox Weapons more useful, or raising the value of the average Araxxor Chest. No! That'd be too stupid. What he does is mess with the mechanics. He did it for Rago after energies/wands/orbs crashed with new rotations, and that didn't solve anything. He did it with KK after Drygores crashed and he released new mechanics - it didn't do anything. He did it with ROTS, and nothing happened to the price of energies or Shields - it failed. This time it might actually work for the wrong reasons, though. Oh, and market speculators are going to make a killing by hoarding Nox Weapons.

Well, they seem mostly lackluster. This will crash the price of Lants, and they'll become the new Snapdragons/Kuarms. What the RDT desperately needed was Cannonballs, because that's something that's quite useful, that a lot of people want, and that few people make in 2k15 because smithing Cannonbals is obsolete and tedious.

 

New changes to RDT:

 

-Drops 100 Gold Ore instead of 100 Silver Ore

-Drops 156 Raw Lobsters, instead of Swordies.

 

Meh.

At least it isn't raw rocktail.

 

I stand firm that RDT drops should have things where you wouldn't know if its a rare drop or not, with an exceptional few things worth a whole lot.

Wait, does the other news section mean that probation and the wait to use the citadel it over? *Prepares the party streamers*

Yep, as soon as you are able to join a clan, you can cap straight away.

http://services.runescape.com/m=rswiki/en/Rare_Drop_Table#Rare_Drops

I have no clue if that is updated (and if it is correct), and there is no comparison, I have no clue what is different. Also they seem to have their own concept of how the drop table is made up wrong... Super rare herb table? Or did they change the how the whole rare drop table works and included herb tables?

 

Edit: nevermind, they got me confused by naming the page "rare drop table"... while they seem to be the rare drop table and other drop tables...

This update doesn't seem to have made araxxor any more difficult to farm- on the contrary, given that the pheromone is a common drop (up to 1/10, likely lower than that), this means that the average rage is basically capped at 90% (and likely lower), where as before it would approach 150% the more kills you got. Logging out was bug abuse anyway and it is smarter to use an instance anyway to save time. The pheromone being tradeable means you can pay to have difficulty of farming araxxor decreased, which seems like a nice idea.

First to 99 Farming on 27. September, 2005.

First to 3766 Port Score on 20. March, 2014.

After some reflection I think this araxxor update is good for me.  I often don't have a ton of time to scape and when I do I don't like to spend it all doing Araxxor.  With the pheromone I can get 95% correct style spawn rate in the base world which is better than I had before, and since I often only do 1 hr/day of araxxor I can kill off-style spawns even at 80-100% base enrage.  Prices for drops should be better too.  

 

I'm more sad about purple bomb bc on vorago hardmode if you don't kill it on the first cycle it can be kill lost.

best drops (reasonably accurate/up to date): 1x Elysian Sigil (LS), 1x Arcane Sigil (cs), 4x Armadyl Hilt (solo at 100m, 100m, 50m, and 5m), 2x Saradomin Hilt (solo at 25m), 5x Draconic Visage (34m,1.2m,1.2m) and various cs/ls/ffa Nex splits.
Drygore Drops: 7 Longswords, 3 Maces, 3 Rapiers, 3 Off-hand Rapiers,  5 Off-hand Maces, 3 Off-hand Longswords

ROTS Shields: 12  Seismics: 16

Ascension Crossbows: 6  Spider Legs: 10

Countless Armadyl armour pieces, Saradomin amulets, Dragon Hatchets, and Fremenik Rings.

Using/buying an instance for araxxor are we now able to have the option to pick what style we want? If not, I'm done with that place....Shame I  sold my Nox staff! I feel if we pay to kill it we should at least be able to pick what style we want.

 

The Treasure Hunter mentality is too strong at Jagex. Pay for a chance of something to happen  -_- .

Inefficiency = fun. That's objective and can't be debated. Ever.

 

Blog to 200m in all skills.

Final Boss title achieved December 28th, 2014.

I guess that's alright. It will deal with those persistent clan hoppers. 'Oh let me join again!' And regarding that, yes, everyone got a free reset because they screwed things up.

I feel bad for those that got kicked/banned from a clan though.
