50%

 

Not 50% because you still have to do a lot of banking time.

 

 

 

presets

 

Yeah, but Cooking each fish 50% faster (which is the information I was giving) will mean that even with presets and perfect banking you will be banking more times per hour because you get through more invents/hr, so the overall xp/hr or items cooked/hr isn't actually 50% higher than regular 3 tick cooking.

Aren't all bugs technically "taking advantage of a game mechanic"?

The difference is - and this is just my personal guess / what I reckon - that if a game mechanic is functioning normally, and the player uses that mechanic cleverly to gain some advantage, that's allowed. If the game mechanic is somehow broken or faulty, and a player uses that to gain an advantage, that's bug abuse.

It's hard to figure out with the potion-drinking-tick-saving mechanic, because clearly the way animations are designed they can cancel other animations, and this allows certain actions to occur faster than normal, and there doesn't seem to be anything "broken" about that, but Jagex probably didn't intend for that to be able to be used to gain faster exp than otherwise. In my opinion this is a case of an unintended feature. Jagex have every right to nerf it, as they didn't intend for the drinking potions to have that effect. However, as the feature was functioning perfectly normally, although with an unintended effect, I don't think they should punish players for using it, as at the time they used it it was just how the game worked, it wasn't an error, it was an unintended consequence of a deliberate feature (the animation for drinking a potion)

This issue has been in the game for years (remember shark-brewing??) and if Jagex want to remove it then they should do that, but punishing people for using an aspect of the game that has existed longer than most Jmods have worked at Jagex is not fair.

Does elias only have a few months at a time where he can grind out xp, or does he just get bored after a few months?

Elias is very religious you see, so can only spend a few months at a time doing trivial things like playing RS before he has to get...


... back2pray.


Anyway, has anyone done time calculations in a while, I'm just wondering how many hours Jake has til 5b? Will he probably be aiming for 5.2b I assume?

Why? the top players don't buy spins, and if they did the community would probably not regard them as the top players anymore...

Is it just me who loves the fact that vmser was rank 1 agil from levels 63-71, first person ever to posess a torstol herb, and is still not 99 Agility. I know this game is [bleep]ed up in a lot of ways these days, but there's something fantastic about its history.

To balance the un-entertaining seriousness of this post, lol 69th post :D
