True, but there could be some instances when someone gets into a building they don't have the requirements for yet because they're standing on that spot. What does Jagex do about these people?


Whenever Jagex has made major changes to the geography of an area (the Burthorpe/Taverly rework or Lumbridge Crater, for example) they tend to teleport anyone in those areas away, usually to their chosen respawn point, ot avoid issues like logging in over a lake that wasn't there when they logged out or getting stuck in a ladder or whatevs.  If, for some odd reason, someone still logs in and finds themselves stuck, they can either Home Tele* away or, if there are enough problems with the area, PMods will make themselves available to tele the players to a safe zone outside of the glitched area.


*Interestingly, the Home Teleport spell originally only went to Lumbridge, and was put into the game to help new players get back to a familiar place if they ever got lost in their explorations, or got stuck in a buggy area.

In Topic: My concern with the treasure chest.

Probably because TH is randomized, and having extra Keys doesn't guarantee you'll get something good, it just increases the chances that you might.  Think of it like a casino slot machine; putting a trillion dollars into one of those won't guarantee that you get a jackpot, it just makes it more likely that you will.

On the other hand, cheating via real-world trading is paying x sum of money for a predictable, tangible in-game item that you can use to gain an unfair advantage over other players, and a trillion dollars would enable you to buy all of the advantages in terms of raw materials, tradeable weapons/armor, etc.  On top of that, it's been suggested that the money paid in real-world trading is often used to fund various criminal and terrorist elements, whereas paying money for extra Keys (or Bonds or whatever) goes directly to Jagex to help develop future game content.

Or, to look at the issue a different way, Jagex figures that people with money will use that money to gain an advantage in their game no matter what; by giving those players a safe, legal way to spend their real money for in-game material, Jagex is not only reaping the monetary benefit (which is then shared with the Community via better updates), they're also helping to shut down criminal enterprises across the planet while still helping wealthy players scratch that spending itch.

In Topic: Why Does Runescape celebrate 4th of July with an event?

31 July 2015 - 11:54 AM

However, I do find it odd when some of these celebrations and events, and particularly their costumes, don't exactly go with the era Runescape is themed to be set in - kind of distracts from the fantasy.

That's largely why I stopped paying attention to holiday events last few years (that, and the shift from mini-quests with fun rewards that take less than an hour to massive, multi-day community events); Jagex have put a lot of time and effort into crafting a unique world with its own brand of interesting immersion, then they do something "fun" and silly like this that utterly destroys that immersion by reminding us of the Real World ™ that a lot of us are trying to get away from for a little bit.

Okie doke, thanks for the quick answers.

In Topic: So much for "short"cuts...

14 January 2015 - 01:16 AM

This game needs more shortcuts, cause right now agile is useless

The only reason I even train it is for prerequisites (quests requirements, unlocking equipment, etc.)  Otherwise, yea, there's not much point.
