Uhh this was unexpected. Very nearly rerolled it out of habit thinking it was 150k... then 1.5m before realising.



Got a backstab cape on Clue #3 on this account, nothing else rare. First ever super rate. Tempted to transfer it to my main to sell, but will see.

5th Skilling Pet on my Ironman! Unfortunately the slayer pet counts as a combat pet now so no title just yet.

Just got my second skilling pet on my ironman, now got more on there than my main.




This might be my favourite pet so really glad I got it. 70 Thieving so pretty low but still higher than when I got my div pet.

I still feel very sad that this place is deserted.


I'm not gonna leave RuneScape since I love that game. And the fact that it's one of my favorite games is exactly the reason why the biggest RS community being so deserted saddens me.


Is NOTHING we can do to make it lively again? There has to be something we can do.


There isn't anything to be done really. It's not like tip.it forums are dying and nothing else is.

Forums are a dying breed full stop.

Every fan site, every game, every forum out there is in a similar situation as the world is moving on.

The forum as a concept has had its glory day and now social media and reddit are taking the fore.


There's no point trying to cling on to it and force it to carry on, you just have to move with the times and realise nothing can last forever and as something birthed is the 90s (mostly) the forum has done quite well as a format. It's outlived Myspace, Bebo, MSN, AOL etc.



Forums still have their place, more to discuss topics in depth rather than just discussing what's happening at that moment.  Forum topics have a much longer life span than a reddit post and that has some merit, it's just about tuning your forum to that niche. But there is still a lot less appetite for that now than their used to be.


Tip.It hasn't been helped by the fact that the website is dead, if the website was still going strong than that'd mean there'd be more activity here (albeit not a huge amount, but still more than now). Tip.It did not adapt when the Wiki came along and that's what killed it. A lot of staff stopped playing the game and they weren't replaced, I mean look at how many of the current staff still play the game, not a lot. I think there's about two admins even who are still actively playing the game (maybe even only one?). Out of all the current crew members it's been over a month since a single one of them logged into the forum! The Moderator/Crew Leader hasn't logged in for over a year too.


This site needed people who still cared about the game in charge but that didn't happen. As they stopped playing the game those people stayed in charge instead of doing what those before them did when they stopped playing the game - step down and let others take control.

You only get one of them and then the gold value of the other two. So in that case it'd be AGS + 1M.

I broke it...


How so did you break it? I see nothing broken.


4 dead end doors, no way to proceed so I had to quit.



The route happened to change whilst you were checking the doors. You should have been able to check them again and one of them would have let you through.

Looks like nothing to all the awesome stuff above but...


Got my first skilling pet!




Not been doing a whole lot of skilling since this came out (other than Invention I guess). Maybe 500k or so fishing xp since then? If that.

All I see here is that people are basically giving up by saying there's no way for us to compete with the other help/fan sites.

If more Tip.It members helped updating our database and used their time polishing old out-dated guides we would gain more popularity. It's simply a matter of trying. With or without J mods.

Each site has their advantages and disadvantages, we aren't done for, and we wont be thanks to those who are still keeping the site running and constantly updating the website.

If you see something that's missing, old or otherwise should be mentioned; Don't hesitate to report it out in the forums.

If I may; I'm currently working in reincarnating TMHT and at the same time spending time in updating the database. Anyone interested in joining the TMHT project please contact me as soon as you can. Happy holidays.


I really like TIF, and certainly do not like the lack of activity and popularity, but the times have changed. It really is not possbile to compete anymore. The predominant way to get news nowadays, for RS is Reddit, Twitter, RS homepage/forums, and Twitch. The predominant way to access high level and very up to date guides is to basically watch the top PVMers and Skillers streaming themselves on Twitch. That's not going to change and there isn't anything that can be done with that. That's just the way it is.


I disagree that there's no way to compete. I've been involved in a number of RS fansites over the years and each has been successful in their own way. You need to be able to adapt, you need to be ahead of the other sites with what you're offering and you need to do it well. This doesn't just apply to RuneScape, it applies to pretty much everything, not just games.


Tip.It is probably not the place where that can happen unfortunately, but that doesn't mean it can't happen elsewhere. Tip.It has not evolved when other communities came up and each of them have taken a slice of what this site used to have. I've not kept up 100% with this site since 2011 when I was admin here but it looks like not a lot has changed in that regard. There were definitely problems back then and I don't see any evidence of those problems having been resolved since.


So I agree that Tip.It can't compete but I don't agree that there's no way anyone can compete (which is what your post implies). It just requires someone with a great idea to come along and have the passion and commitment to see that idea through.

My first ever hilt drop :)


Might not be worth a great deal these days compared to when it was new but still very glad to finally get one!
