Market Discussion

19 January 2011 - 10:15 PM

Due to the existence of a Rares/3a/Spirit Shield topic, yet with no place to discuss general market sentiment it appears only logical to have a topic in where that it is encouraged as opposed to being somewhat off-topic.
Therefore this thread has been created with the purpose of discussing general fluctuations in the market whilst maintaining a certain degree of chivalry, that is by not infringing on manipulation rules and what have you.
The general thread should cover discussion as opposed to instruction which could lead to people trying to manipulate others through bad advice. Please note that any discussion towards Party hats/3a/Spirit Shields should belong on it's appropriate thread although, naturally, there will be some cross-over.

In order to get the ball rolling I will voice my predictions on the effects of returning free-trade/wilderness:

As we all know it doesn't take a degree in economics to work out that there will be an increase in people wishing to PK and as such that will increase demand for many items.
However the first distinction must be made between items that are consumed and those that are not. In the former case I would expect to see an increased equilibrium price in items that are consumed, such as sharks, runes, potions and arrows. This is because of their very nature in that once they are used they are more or less gone (with the slight exception that some arrows are returned).

However, with other items such as whips, barrows sets, amulets, dragon boots, etc, although there will be an initial price increase due to the increased demand, because these items are not lost as they are in the incumbent PvP system, price will gradually fall, note the price of whips before the PvP removal in 2007.

Furthermore, with the reduction of statuettes GP will enter the game at a slower rate, assuming that Jagex don't change/add anything, therefore decreasing inflation, hence making money worth slightly more. As a result I would expect to see raw items that are not directly related to the PvP system gradually falling in price, that said I would not expect it to be drastic, except in the first few days perhaps when a general focus moves towards PvP and away from current daily activities.

Naturally, it is hard to discuss a future update without an awful lot of knowledge over what the update will actually entail, however this isn't to be taken as gospel just my opinion on it.
What are your thoughts and have I got anything wrong or missed anything blatantly obvious?

Feel free to discuss any items in the market, with the aforementioned exception, and perhaps I and any others who wish to join in can help answer your questions.

Dung help

11 January 2011 - 12:37 AM

Hey all,

Abritrarily decided to come back and play for a bit and get myself a rapier/longsword.

I am now 47 dung and have been researching the basics of dungeoneering and know what i'm doing to some extent.

I can now get up to floor 24 and am wondering what my best bet for exp/hour is. To what level should I rush and in a team and on what complexity?

I've found myself playing with people who clearly are worse than I am in terms of dungeoneering, is there any way to avoid playing with these morons? Any worlds/clans other than 117?

Cheers,
Ed :thumbsup:

20m range-slay budget + weapon choice

29 June 2010 - 11:54 PM

Hey all,

Just came back from my A2 exams which I've now finished :thumbsup:
I have 20m in my bank and a green mask which I would have thought will rise in the near-ish future, probably worth keeping hold of.
Therefore, to get some money back, i'm looking to range slay, only I currently have a 20m budget.
As it stands I have no armour so i'll be needing set ups for all tasks.
(I have accumilator, sw capes and a torso if that makes any difference)
Also, i'm 2 levels from using a +5 boost to get extreme range, would this be worth getting to decrease task times?
I'm assuming focus sight, but wondering what is good armour, archer's ring? What about the higher def tasks?

I'm assuming broad bolts for most tasks except knives/darts in Kuradel's dungeon, which metal types - at 99 slayer I don't mind using range pots, addy bolts or whatever.

Cheers in advance,
Ed

Going f2p for exams

22 April 2010 - 05:51 PM

As the title says I have 72m to invest.

Normally, i'd undoubtedly invest in the rares market due to the very nature of them being rares.
Howevever, I've noticed that they've been rising almost consistently for the last 180 days, I'm not sure how much longer this can be sustained - I know at the moment green mask and santa are dropping/flattening but I can't work out (and I haven't been to W2 in a while) if they're actually crashing or going through a minor drop in price.
On the other hand, I'm coming back in 2 months time so it won't be too long, so my investments could be medium term.

I've kept my fury as my only members item as I feel they're a relatively safe bet for the future.. :ohnoes:

Anyway,

My choice at the moment seems to be between santa + 20m of other stuff and green mask.
I will be checking prices from time to time so a f2p item would be preferable so I can react whilst in f2p because I really wont be a member.

Cheers,
Ed

Uses for Recover Special

17 April 2010 - 01:34 PM

Hey all,

Just got myself 85 Herblore for extremes and have used recover specials for 84 - 85
Although I factored into my Gp/xp calculations that they had no worth, so I don't really care if I don't use them, is there anywhere that they're really good or particularly worth taking as opposed to just helping?

I'm maxed combat with extremes (If I stew) and turmoil, so in terms of game content there's a lot of things open to me. I'm also 99 slayer so I wont really be using them on task as I very rarely slay anymore,

At the moment I can think of

  • Solo (or more) Bandos
  • TDs - don't quite know what to use for the special though
  • Sara for ZGS specs?
