#5526001 200M in all Skills

Actually, at least for me, I end up being MORE productive in my work and tend to work for longer stretches if I'm afking RS on the side, as I don't feel the temptation to play as much because I am already playing.

 

It all really depends on the person. All I know is, when I do my course work, I study for maybe 1-2 hour stretches. When I do my course work while mining Seren Stones, I end up studying for 3-4 hour stretches, sometimes even more. Probably some psychological reason, but it works very well for me.




#5520822 Recent trend to include PvM into Comp Cape, i.e. Rush of Blood [Split]

Posted by Reliable on 28 September 2014 - 04:48 PM

 

The whole "team based for a solo achievement" is a valid argument. I would say, however, it fails to hold any value when talking about a completionist achievement in a MMO. Because remember, this isn't a single person game, and some things you need a team to do.

 

 

I wouldn't have had as much of a problem if this stuff was an original requirement. It's that the cape has been out for years, causing it to become a major goal for many people since it is actually achievable, then years into their progress changing it to something that ruins the entire goal for them. It's a classic dangling of a carrot then yanking it away at the very last minute.

 

This has been my wife's goal for almost 2 years, and is the main reason she has been working so hard maxing out everything. To take it away after all that work is very frustrating, especially when the new requirement is something that was never part of the cape (team-based activities). New skilling requirements and such are not an issue as that has been what the cape has always been about.




#5520818 Recent trend to include PvM into Comp Cape, i.e. Rush of Blood [Split]

Posted by Reliable on 28 September 2014 - 04:36 PM

I am getting close to Final Boss, managed to do Rush of Blood 20+ on third try, have hundreds of Araxxor kills using every single style. I still think these are a bit ridiculous requirements for the regular completionist cape.

 

I know the disability thing is a touchy issue, but I look at my wife, who is about to max, with only a few more Dungeoneering levels left to get completionist. Due to doctor negligence during her open heart surgery as a kid (birth defect in her heart), she had a pretty bad stroke that caused her to be blind on her right side, massively cut down her reaction speed, and made it very hard to learn new things. We have been working together so she could manage to do some bosses, and sure enough, she finally managed to take down QBD, and some mid level bosses. When it comes to Araxxor however, her reaction speed makes it near impossible to beat. She has tried over 50 attempts so far, getting to phase 3 only twice due to these issues (tunnel 3 is essentially impossible). She is about to quit bothering for completionist, as she just can't manage to get her kill, and this is not even including Vorago, RotS; team based bosses that people tend to have low tolerance for mistakes, let alone the reaction time required to clear these bosses regardless. So please don't say we haven't tried.

 

She isn't even too bothered by Araxxor alone, as we can one day maybe duo it for her reaper title, but of course that is nullified with Morvran's challenge (thankfully being changed). The team bosses are the real big issue, as it's easy enough when she is with me, who understands and is patient, but when you have to add multiple other people who (usually) aren't so patient and wouldn't understand the extent of her disability, this brings in a whole new multitude of problems. I am a big advocate of removing team bosses from a solo accomplishment cape.

 

I can also refer to my friend, who works on a vessel and lives there due to his work. His internet makes the game barely playable skilling, and makes it virtually impossible to boss, especially in a team setting (good luck finding teams that are accommodating to disconnects every 5 mins).

 

I understand the cape should require some skill, I'm not debating that. What I am debating is the need of multiple players to obtain your (ex) solo accomplishment cape. I have no problem with team activities in the game, I just don't like them being required in order to progress in solo accomplishments. I refuse to team with people unless I absolutely have to in this game, as a good chunk of the PvM community (much like the PvP community) is elitist, requires perfection, and is downright toxic with their attitudes. Sure, not everyone is like that, but I'd even go as far as saying a majority is, and this is 100% from my own experiences. I'm just lucky that I have the ability to do everything "perfect" to stay on these teams, but rest assured, I'll be so happy when Final Boss is complete and I no longer have to deal with them.

 

Also, Rush of Blood I really dislike as a requirement, as I was able to manage no problem, but I have full T90 gear. This is also a major issue in alot of PvM teams, requiring you to have the best of the best gear or they won't even accept you, but I'll discount that since there are SOME teams that don't (however rare). Rush of Blood however, almost requires T90, minus a ridiculous amount of luck and the utmost precision accuracy and 110% mastery of everything possible in combat. I 100% support a change to that requirement, but I don't think that will come.

 

I also find it a bit disturbing that this is causing a massive influx of people sharing accounts to get others to clear these requirements for them. I've had literally 8 different people ask me to do their Araxxor for them, most of which have considerable wealth on their accounts. This is just asking for more hacking / scamming, but this is also a player choice, so I can't (fully) blame Jagex on that, it just sucks to see it occurring right now.

Sucks that ba was nerfed, hopefully that will be fixed in time for the new, supposedly better hardmode...

Where does it say it was nerfed? 

 

 

A recent patch note (not actually related to BA) caused defending to be much harder and longer to do, making defenders not want to play anymore as well. It's not so much the game itself is nerfed, but it is much slower since Defenders can't keep up now, lowering everyone's bxp / hr.

@licert

 

Give me a full length explanation then rather than saying "nope" every other post.

 

Full length explanations are fully wasted on you. "Nope" is all anyone should ever be bothered to waste on you.

I see all hell has broke loose on this thread since I've been gone. 'Tis a glorious day for E-drama.

 

For those referring to my one, single achievement, I assume they are talking about that time I did 200m Fletch with sc knives.

 

MAPLES FTW.

 

So you're a failed fletchile then, you used bonus exp to do your fletching, should have done it the right way by making arrows from scratch.

 

Regarding the E-drama, pot calling the kettle black to the finest degree.

 

 

How fast is slayer atm, not taking in account to get all 200m's ?

Just wondering how long slaying for "120" would take

 

Unfortunately, slayer is hard to really say as the block lists, style you use, what gear you have access to, and luck that Kuradal doesn't kick you while you're down all come into play.

 

Sticking to most higher exp tasks, I'm netting roughly 130k exp per hour on average, without anything fancy (Chaotic staff, Royal Xbow, Drygores for all meleeable tasks outside of strykes). It's definitely not the most efficient way to slay either, just the way I prefer doing it since I want more melee exp.

 

The new Kalgerion Demons seem to be 130k + slayer per hour, even with how long they take to kill as well.

I dont think suomi put much effort in getting donations. he just trained slow skills and left buyables for last. As he got closer to 200m all slaves started donating more and more. he spent mabye a year asking for donations with 10 words. eventually his slaves just started coming to him and trading him without him even asking. not much effort in saying "accepting donations 20k+ please"

You just proved my point >_>

 

Ask yourself: why did people choose to donate to Suomi, of all people? Why did people donate to Suomi and not you? What's the difference between you two?

 

I want respect when i finally achieve 200m all. not controversy like suomi has caused.

 

 

Respect is not gained simply by achieving a goal in a specific way. Respect also comes with how you handle yourself with those achievements.

 

The whole Suomi incident with Jagex HQ and the events leading up to it made Suomi lose respect from alot of people, and not because of the whole donation nonsense.

 

If you try to downgrade other people's achievements because you did it the "hard way", it won't make people respect you either, it will actually do the complete opposite. Be humble, not arrogant and egotistic.

 

Respect is earned, not given, no matter what end goal you achieve.




#5498023 Jagex Stance On Multilogging - Changed

Posted by Reliable on 30 May 2014 - 05:13 PM

You guys think making the rewards better will DETER people from multilogging them? You do realize most people are not multilogging because of a lack of people, but because of how much easier it is to manipulate the results right?

This thread has turned into a witchhunt again.....

How about we just permanently lock it

 

 

But how else would Lover Sexio get the admiration and respect she so desperately requires to live day by day for doing Agility the "right way"?




#5491127 200M in all Skills

Posted by Reliable on 20 April 2014 - 02:39 AM

I've been told that if you train at Advanced Barbarian course with bonus xP from BA, you should expect to get something like 130k xp/hr (including time getting the bonus xp).

 

By doing that, it would take you ~1438 hours to get 187m Agility XP.

 

 

With this 2k14 boots, it would take you 0 hours but it would cost you 23k coins each 860 XP you get, correct me if I'm wrong since I don't play RuinScape anymore. 

If that's correct, it could cost 27gp/xp and 5B gp to get 187m XP.

 

So, it's all a matter of spending 1438hours or spending 5B gp. 5b/1438= 3477k

 

TL;DR: Unless you make less than 3477k GP/hr, 2k14 boots are worth using. And that's assuming you gain no valuable XP while making money. If you do, obviously this number will decrease.

 

Actually yesterday went to buy some SH feathers and they instabought for 19k per now. I think they fell after jagex fixed the glitch of them not coming on TH.

 

Taking that into account it's actually 4.13b for 187m, or 2.87m per hour, definitely worth using.

LOL @ relationships are a huge waste of your time.

 

This page and the previous page is full of laughter.

 

"Working a 9 to 5 is at least...", this is why you start your own business or become a partner of a business instead being in the bottom of the corporate ladder (if you work in a corporate world job).

 

Now, If you're working for a job that is paying you around minimum wage, well, you're screwed.

 

 

Relationships ARE a waste of time for some people. Some people prefer not to be in them, as hard as it might be to believe for someone so narrow minded.

 

Also, I never knew it was so easy to just become partner of a business and start your own business, I don't understand why everyone in the world hasn't done this with it being so damn easy. Oh wait, because it's not.

 

Also, take it from me, you do NOT want to own your own business. You lose the benefits, you can't come home and relax because your business is always on your mind, you constantly have to make sure your business isn't doomed to fail with the incredible amount of changes you are forced to adapt to in order to keep afloat. I find it much better to go to work, come home, and erase work from your mind so you can relax after work.

 

Also, higher pay doesn't necessarily mean you have more money. Higher tax brackets can really dwindle all that extra pay down, leaving you with 100x more responsibility, for 5% more pay. It's not always worth it.

 

Its a waste of time for those people who are socially awkward, in a mess themselves, or those from a bad background.

 

Its simple to be a partner of a business, obviously those who aren't either went into the corporate way, decided to make their own business, or had no partners or a good network to begin with, or simply unemployed.

 

Starting your own business these days is more easier and less risk associated than it was before 2008.

LLCs are more common these days, and I have friends who can take as many days as they want off from their work because of the amount of money they have been bringing in with their business, primarily because most of it is online based. So don't bring up the whole 'I'd rather go to a 9-5/40 hour work week and come home and erase work from my mind so i can relax after work".

 

I'll assume you haven't heard of off shore accounts, IRAs, HSAs, ETFs, or index funds. Having the higher pay allows you to have more money. 

Of course its worth it, you are not financially smart or good at all with your personal finances.

 

 

Or a waste of time for those who have been in multiple relationships that have ended badly. Why would my brother, for instance, want to go into another relationship to be used and taken to the cleaners after breaking it off with sleazy lawyers? He already can't make enough of a living to support himself because the courts determined that SHE gets everything. Again, don't be so ridiculously narrow minded.

 

Making your own business in this economy is a huge risk, and can leave you bankrupt faster than you thought possible. You do realize the MAJORITY of businesses fail right? You don't just magically snap your fingers and have a successful business. If you really think it's that easy, be prepared for a rough financial ride in life. If it really was this easy, you wouldn't have horrible unemployment rates in some of the most developed countries in the world. I own a successful business already, and wish I went another route, so yes, I WOULD have rather come home and erase work from my mind, but it's too late for that.

 

I'll assume you don't realize that alot of these tax avoidance methods are in fact, tax avoidance, which is highly illegal in most countries. There's alot of fine print in most country's legal systems that actually prevent you from using it. Governments want your money, they don't just let you stop paying them so easily. You may think because you haven't experience repercussions from using these, that it's 100% legal and you'll never have problems. Even Canadian TFSA (Tax free savings accounts) have strict rules and fees that make up from that "saving" that you have. These are temporary shelters at the most, and you will make up for them with hidden fees and interest long term.

Pfft, kids are an XP waste!

 

 

 

But a bit more serious, I would never want to bring something into this world destined to die. Being responsible for the creation of a life is a bit too much responsibility for me. If I was never born - would I care if I had gotten to "enjoy" life or not? Because of this - relationships are largely a huge waste of my time. They come with drama, obligations to waste my time on other peoples' wants, and offer very little in return that seems beneficial to my goals and desires. I'd rather not deal with it. That same "nothing that benefits my goals or desires" extends to friendships. They offer nothing to me but ask to take a lot from me. 

 

Working a 9 to 5 at least benefits my goals and desires. Not paying my taxes and being imprisoned doesn't benefit my goals and desires - so I pay my taxes.

 

If you want to pretend that I work and willingly contribute to society, then so be it. But the only reason that contribution reaches societies hands is because society is like a bully stealing lunch money. It's either "give me the money or get beaten up". Without jeapordizing my goals and desires - I don't really have a choice.

Gotta love it when people think their way is the only way to play this game.

 

And it actually is a direct waste of time NOT training agility with the boots, as unfortunate as that is. But you're right, 170m agil exp with minimal to no bonus exp deserves absolutely no respect because he is now being more efficient in achieving the same goal. Damn you, Paperbag!

 

It really is shocking to see how many are closing in on the 5.2 mark now though. Should make for a VERY interesting race once Inventor is released.

I think you misunderstood what I was talking about with RuneScape playstyle. Eldevin is just another conventional MMORPG, not one of RuneScape's style. What makes RS unique is not that it's a browser-based game that runs on Java (which is the only similarity Eldevin has with it), but rather because of the unique competitive skilling that exists only within RuneScape and not in any other game.

 

I more meant it was one of the only games I have seen that actually has a skilling playstyle available as opposed to being almost 100% combat based. I have never actually found a game that had multiple different skills to level, which is what drew me to Runescape. WoW was decent but is still miles off when you can max pretty much every profession in mere hours, let alone only being able to have 2 per character.

Just amuses me looking back at the Effigy nerf because Jagex felt that "you shouldn't gain exp while not actually training the skill".

 

We all freaked out at how much effigies ruined skilling, kind of funny seeing where we are now from that.
