#5497925 Oldschool RS opens up its first F2P trials for May 27th through June 10th

Posted by sa121 on 30 May 2014 - 06:07 AM

Best part about the trial: F2P pking scene is back.  It was impossibly to find fights post level 80 in the F2P style worlds before the update, now 381 is a hub for pvping at all levels.  I hope it stays this way.

Yay.

 

 

As an aside, anyone know the exact total level/stats Oddfaery2 was before he got access to the fishing guild?  I kinda want to beat him at that, hah.




#5465581 Tip.It Times - 24th November 2013 - Oh, grow up! 1 down 5 to go

Posted by sa121 on 01 December 2013 - 05:46 AM

 

I miss the days where players would create skill guilds, such as Fletching on w132 Yanille Bank.  Players have become too 'me me me' now-a-days.  A lot of things are just becoming too easy...

The community is the main reason why the game is less fun nowadays compared to before, IMO.

 

Efficiency-Scape kinda killed my motivation to play what's now RS3 - it became the norm to play 6 hour days at 100% max efficiency with no room for "fun" activities.  It's just a whole different vibe than the game had before.  It's nice in that there's a lot of high level content and people to do it, but there's no longer a real "noob" class in the game anymore.  Everyone and their dog is maxed/comped.

#5462838 How exactly is the clan world dying?

Posted by sa121 on 15 November 2013 - 07:17 AM

Also, frankly, the quality of players in a lot of the major PVP clans is horrendous (I'm thinking particularly about the 'pure' world here) ~ it's an utter cesspool of macroing, ingrained rivalries and stupidity.

 

 

Unfortunately this is too true.  Probably a solid 50% or more of the clan world has botted stats on their account, or has multiple botted accounts.  In addition, due to the nature of many clans requiring events that can last incredibly long times, you tend to get a lot of the burnt-out types in it, which leads to a fairly immature community at times.

 

 

That said, my time in PvP clans were probably some of the best I've ever had in RS.  Even with all the bad things/people involved in it, it's incredibly fun and the camaraderie of clan members is something everyone should experience.

First hilt drop of 07 :D

 

Too bad GWD prices crashed so hard compared to real 07, gonna be around 10-10.5M for a 4-man split versus the like 30M it woulda been a week post-GWD in 2007.  Still, can't complain about a hilt drop, especially since we got an SS earlier in the trip too, so that's a solid 12-13M :D

#5456865 Short Nightmare Zone Guide

Posted by sa121 on 16 October 2013 - 01:26 AM

EDIT:  This main post is still okay for getting a basic gist of how to NMZ, but I have a lot of hard data in the comments that is useful too.  This guide will be overhauled once I get the time for it.

 

 

 

 

So, if you play OSRS, you've probably heard by now about the quick, 100% afk xp you can get in the Nightmare Zone (NMZ), but you might not know how to take advantage of it.  Well, here's a quick, basic guide on how to do so.

 

Set-up:

 

There's two ways to go about the set-up, dharoking or whip/scimming

 

 

 

Dharok's set up:

 

Full DH (duh)

Zerker i>Zerker>Warrior i> Warrior > any

Fury>Glory>God stole>other

Barrows gloves/best you can get>combat brace

Rune Boots=climber boots

Fire cape>trimmed skill cape> skill cape/obby> legends

 

 

Other set up:

Dscim/whip>other weapons

Prossy top>monk robe

Prossy bot>=monk robe

Zerker i>Zerker>Warrior i> Warrior > any

Fury>Glory>God stole>other

Barrows gloves/best you can get>combat brace

Rune Boots=climber boots

Fire cape>trimmed skill cape> skill cape/obby> legends

Rune defender> DFS > others

 

 

 

Inventory:

 

Dharoks inventory:

Rock cake

DDS (optional)

Coins (for coffer and paying booster)

Holy Wrench (optional) (can be replaced with extra prayer potion)

6x Overload (4) (obtained by paying 1.5k NMZ points/dose, can only be used in the minigame)

19 Prayer potions (4)

 

Other inventory:

DDS

Coins (for coffer and paying booster)

Holy Wrench (optional) (can be replaced with extra prayer potion)

7x Overload (4) (obtained by paying 1.5k NMZ points/dose, can only be used in the minigame)

19 Prayer potions (4)

 

 

 

What is boosting?

 

Once you get to the NMZ, you'll want to look for melee-only boosters.  What are these?  They are accounts with only specific quests done that will create a party and invite you to it, enabling only melee bosses, making for easy training.  However, most of these accounts will charge between 20-40k per rumble, so be prepared to pay up before you enter.  This is a trust trade, and while I've never been scammed, I'm sure there are a few untrustworthy people out there, so if you're worried, look for folks who have a lot of people trading them first.

 

 

 

 

Quests needed for boosting:

 

Boosters tend to have the following quests done, and will require you to complete them as well:

   - Vampire Slayer

   - Mountain Daughter

   - Lost City

   - Gnome Stronghold

   - Fight Arena

 

Some may have more done, including the rare account that is designed to boost the Dream Mentor bosses, but these are rare, so just the above quests will be fine.

 

 

 

Strategy:

 

Method 1:  AFKing

 For this, all you need to do is drink a dose of overload, turn on protect from melee, use up your special attacks if you brought a spec weapon, and then proceed to come back every 4 minutes or so to top off prayer/re-overload.  Very simple stuff.  If dharoking, use your rock cake after you overload to drop yourself down to 1HP.

 

Method 2: Not 100% AFKing

 You'll basically be following the above plan, but with some slight modifications.  If you notice yourself gaining HP while dharoking, just rock cake back to your minimum HP.  Another thing you will notice are the randomly spawning power-ups, of which there are 4 kinds: zapper, ultimate force, power surge, and recurrent damage.

 

 Zapper works as an AoE attack, doing low damage to every NPC in range.

Ultimate force will instantly kill every NPC on the field, however no points will be gained.

Power surge will instantly replenish your special attack, and continue to replenish it for a short period of time.

Recurrent damage will do an extra 75% damage on each hit, but you won't get xp for it.

 

If your goal is solely XP, you will mostly be using power surge, and largely ignoring the other power ups.  Power surge is pretty obvious, you'll take out your spec weapon and continually spec until it runs out, leaving you with some great XP gains for a short period.  The others, however, don't get you much of an xp boost except in some specific circumstances.  When you're fighting, assuming you're using the quests/bosses outlined above, the hardest boss to kill will be the black demon.  If you end up with 3 or 4 black demons, you will then want to use the other power ups in an effort to kill them faster and get more vampires/Kendals for better xp.

 

If you want points in addition to XP though, you can use all the power-ups freely, except for ultimate force, which you will only use when there are 3 or 4 live black demons.

 

 

 

You're going to end up fighting in this arena for hours with these supplies, but eventually you'll run out of prayer potions, die, and leave with 600k+ points.  After that, you just find another booster and repeat.  Feel free to spend points on various supplies, as normally you can make back your money spent depending on prices, which I'd suggest checking on Zybez before you buy a lot of one item over another.  You can also imbue various items, like DK rings, crystal bow/shields, and the black mask.  The minigame is pretty enjoyable, and very, very afk friendly, perfect for working on projects, doing homework, playing GTA:O, whatever.  I know this guide isn't the best, but I figured if anyone was wondering about the NMZ, this should help.

 

 

 

If you have any questions/comments, post em here and I'll get back to you.




#5443810 Moneymaking help

Posted by sa121 on 23 August 2013 - 06:21 AM

I'd suggest getting 32 farming, and start farming ranarrs. It's easy money and you could do other stuff irl while waiting for herbs to grow, or do other things in RS, like train combat. Just check the herbs every 80 minutes and plant new ones, and boom, tons of profit. I've made virtually all my money this way, which is probably around 50m total, and I'm only 80 farm, including a bunch of trees I've planted.
