At the top of the fact that the puzzle is extremely difficult, these damn shadows are draining my sharks so fast, I will be out of sharks in no time if I keep this up. And I need them.
So yeah, I am giving up on this quest, as of now at least. I might go back to it some other time, but I do need a break as of now.
There is absolutely no way I can open the final door, I tried everything, nothing worked. At least not without blocking the access to the final blue door, which I also need unlocked to get in there. I might give that guide a chance when I play the quest again. But I'm not playing the quest as of now.
Kudos for trying though, I personally wouldn't even try and I love doing quests without guide (except for things like this and Elemental workshop).
their earlier excuse for not having a standalone client was that they didn't want to give anybody an unfair advantage, but frankly we're kind of past that point considering that people still lag anyway
Nearly everyone can download the client, people will choose not to have an unfair advantage. It just seems like an excuse to not to work on it. They had the same excuse when Runescape only was about 800x600, not wanting to give fullscreen because it will give better computers an unfair advantage (I don't see the advantage, in fact I see many pro efficient people work with small windows because of less mouse travel). You could use that argument if, for example a whole operating system would not be able to download it, or if only computers with high specs could download it.
^I rather not see a quest prestige system. Not because I am opposing the ability to replay quest, but because they hinted many times that making quests replayable is going to cost huge amounts of time. I rather see new quests then replayable quests.
I notice bots all the time when killing monsters, they are everywhere and sadly there isn't much we can do about them.
I wouldn't mind if somebody cheated in a single player game. If they did that, they wouldn't be hurting anyone.
But using bots in a game where CLEARLY real people play it every day is unacceptable.
The bots I notice don't do me much harm, I usually just stay in one spot while fighting monsters, and fight it as soon as it respawns. That is the case when fighting red dragons.
But it seems you have a bigger issue. I'm so sorry they are annoying you.
But one thing I wanna know though. How does Jagex know the difference between a bot and a legitimate player?
I mean only having one skill higher than 1 doesn't automatically make someone a bot. In fact there are people who personally prefer only training one skill and don't care for the others.
Bots behave differently than humans, which triggers the botwatch of jagex. The better botwatch is, the more bots will be acting like humans. This means that either less bots get caught or more legit players get banned (or both), or that it takes more time to see if it is a bot or not (which will cost a lot more). There are a lot of different types of bots and some are easier to catch then others.
Sure some people might not like that I use the word dumb - but whats the point in dancing around sugar coating it? With the protection options existing and the necessity of doing something wrong to get anywhere near being hacked with half way decent AV software it means you did something stupid or dumb and with the tech savviness of kids these days if they are old enough to be using the net unsupervised they are old enough to understand when a site looks dodgy and that such sites can give you viruses which are a bad thing.
Because there is no need to call them dumb, you don't know the circumstances, you don't know them. Also it adds nothing to your point by calling people dumb. If a kid (13+) uses the computer managed by an adult, on which he may not change anything (including changing an anti-viruspogram) then there is no need to call that person dumb, and I am sure that there are many more examples to think of which has nothing to do with the intelligence of the person. Heck even having a lack of computer-knowledge doesn't make you dumb. Also doing something dumb and being dumb are two different things.
