Adventuring into Members

04 October 2013 - 05:43 AM

Hello, and welcome to my humble blog!

 

 

A little bit about my runescape history.

 

 

Some self "rules" of my playthrough:

  • I will avoid using quest-guides if possible.
  • I will also avoid "quest hunting", where I go to a place purely to complete a single quest for the reward. 
  • An exception to the above rule is if I really wish to visit an area, and quests are involved. I believe it's more adventure-like as you will do whatever you are required to get to where you want to go. The above rule applies more towards item rewards.
  • Trade is allowed, but I will try not to abuse it.

I'm taking out the rules, I found out it's difficult to have fun while having to watch out for rules all the time, ahaha!

To make up for the FREEDOM! atrocity of removing rules, I'll put some goals here:

 

Current Goals:

  • Elf quests up to crystal bow
  • 50 Agility for Crystal Bow
  • Metal Dragon Hunting (Near future)

 

 

Future goals:

This blog will be a semi-RP play of RS, with lesser focus on optimal speed/gear.

 

Alright, now that I'm through with all the introductory stuff, lets show you where I'm starting at:

 

Ah, a humble beginning for a humble adventurer. At the time I post this topic, I will be paying for my membership and beginning my adventure!

 

I am in college, but I will play when I feel comfortable and can find the time. I will try and keep this updated as much as possible!

 

My Runescape name is Fobbo, feel free to add me as a friend or drop me a message! I'm always lurking around the tip.it chat when I'm online!

 

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy watching my adventure!

Hello, I've stalked the forums on and off for years now, but I've rarely posted. But I have a question to ask.

 

Yes, the age old question. Should I get membership?

 

It's been tearing me apart recently, mainly because I got my own debit card and can now afford to pay for some games. Runescape's been an interest of mine for a while now, and I've always longed to go into membership, and do the quests full of lore, obtain powerful weapons and adventure into the massive world that has been held away from me for so long. The BoL also sparked my interest, especially since I couldn't complete the set in time and now the only way to get it is, unfortunately, in the GWD.

 

I've also wanted a name change since the day they were released :/

 

But, on the flip side, Runescape is subscription based, which isn't a problem, except the subscription runs whether I play or not. This has always kept me distanced from RS subscription because i know I'll be bleeding money whenever I go on a holiday, or am overloaded by work. This slow money drain also might make me play the game just so I don't "lose money" and might lead to worse studies...etc. I'm a college student now and I am very aware of the heavier workload associated to it. 

 

Another thing is I do play other games. Dota 2, League of Legends are both games I love to play, and they require time too. 

 

Lastly, I've been a F2P for...8? 9 years? I don't remember anymore, but this is a old f2p account, and to be honest, I kind of don't want to make it members. The obvious solution is to just make a new account, but would that be worth it? I can't be sure. 

 

So, here it is. Have anyone else struggled with this before?

 

Members/nonmembers, what have kept you with your decision? I would love to hear some experiences too!


F2P dungeoneering rewards post-EoC

01 March 2013 - 05:12 PM

I've recently decided to train my dungeoneering, and seeing the huge list of rewards I'm quite confused to which I should pick.I currently have 10k, but I'm planning to continue earning points.

The bags are both cheap enough that I'm planning to get them anyway, but it's the more expensive reward that I have problems about.

Arcane Blast Necklace: It's a very slightly improved amulet of magic, is it worth 15k tokens?

Twisted bird skull: is there anywhere where it is practical? last priority unless there's some amazing spot where it's effective.

Shieldbow sight: It used to make the strongest bow in F2P, but now I'm hearing mixed feedback from people. I've heard its not worth it now, but also that it's still one of the strongest f2p bows. If I'm correct it buffs the attack speed of the shieldbow making it only 1 tick slower. Worth it or not worth it?

Law vs Nature staff: from the wiki, they have exactly the same stats combat-wise. Is there a reason one is more expensive and has a higher magic requirement?

Scroll of effeciency: Sounds tempting for the time I'll actually get to training smithing. However, I don't plan on that soon so it's pretty far down my priority list.

Then there's the 40k rewards. These are far away, but they're so expensive I can't afford buying the wrong ones.

Gravite weapons: only considering 2h/bow at the moment. I hate degrading stuff but I heard the 2h degrades slower.

Tome of frost: Seems useless now that there's the bat book and it's no longer possible to staff/book. Would basically force me into using water spells.

Amulet of zealots: I'm really interested in this reward. In the few cases I use prayer I really want them to count. This is my current go-to when I hit 40k.
