Does anybody (who's not a f2p) use the boat at Brimhaven and Musa Point on Karamja anymore?

I don't think anybody does since there now exists a lodestone almost right next to the dungeon of a large selection of great monsters.

 

I think these guys who sail from Karamja to Ardougne and Port Sarim would be out of business if it wasn't for the fact they are NPCs.

 

I know for a fact I don't use these ships anymore. If I wanna travel between Karamja Island and Ardougne, I use the lodestones, simple as that. And that's what I do.

 

Of course when fighting greater demon, red dragons, steel dragons, etc. I use the teleport spell if I'm low on health or have full inventory as it's impossible to use lodestones during combat.

 

But other than that I use the lodestones. So yeah.

Moving to Questionnaires where this is more suitable. If I misunderstood and you were looking for help with something please let me know, but otherwise this doesn't really fit into Help & Advice :P.

They are the kinda thing you need to use in the early game before you get more established and obtain teleports.

 

Plus they feed into a few tasks and quests and things.

The only reason I guess would be the farming spot that is next to the boat at karamja (from musa point). Not sure if it is quicker to just lodestone teleport though.

When I get the clue on going to the banana platform I use the lodestone instead of the boats as it costs no money nor do I need to wear the ring of charos.

I mean, it's 30gp.

Or with Karamja gloves you get the amaaaaaaaaaazing discount of 15gp!

Or for 2 bonds you get paid 30gp to travel and support their small business!

I do, it's clearly the most efficient way to get there.

This should really be a "to each his/her own" I use both, sometimes I just prefer using runes or ships before tablets and lodestones came into the game.


More old-school than you know...

Port Sarim lode to Karamja Boat is the fastest no item way to Musa Point.

Hoardstalker Ring and Brimhaven house tablet/teleport are faster ways into Brimhaven Dungeon than lodestone. Hoardstalker in particular as it's couple "minutes" faster than anything else.

I still prefer using the lodestones.

 

But I'm not gonna assume I'm right when it's obvious that I'm wrong.

 

So I am gonna fully admit that, I was wrong a lot of people STILL use those boats.

 

I still don't regret making this thread though, I wouldn't have known that if I didn't, so thanks for answering my question, fellow RuneScape players.
