#5554054 Make biscuits tradable.

Posted by essiw on 16 April 2015 - 07:56 AM

^Just saying, could have been a third age piece ;) But if you find your bank space more important than the possibility of better rewards then that is your choice, not mine, to make :)

#5553366 Why can't F2P have...?

Posted by essiw on 12 April 2015 - 08:02 AM

^They could design a boss specially for f2p, that drops many f2p items. But of course they won't because of money reasons.

That's it, I'm out of this place.
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).

#5550912 The New Runescape Client ~ NXT (a C++ Client) - Developer Blog

Posted by essiw on 28 March 2015 - 07:16 AM

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.

So what is this looting mechanic exactly? Never heard of it before. Something to automatically pick up loot?

#5548600 RuneLabs Ideas

Posted by essiw on 14 March 2015 - 04:08 PM

^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.

#5547684 Runescape Loading Freezes! Help!

Posted by essiw on 08 March 2015 - 09:16 AM

Are you able to play online (directly in the browser)? This should be possible except if you are using a mac.

#5547550 Runescape Loading Freezes! Help!

Posted by essiw on 07 March 2015 - 09:41 AM

The file should be there. Did you try to remove the launcher and install it again (be sure to remove the cache file again before trying to new downloaded launcher).

#5547337 Runescape Wine of Zamorak bots

Posted by essiw on 05 March 2015 - 09:12 PM

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.

^true, I am at your side :) begging isn't something to be proud of imo.

#5546466 Any ways to kick someone off your account nowadays?

Posted by essiw on 28 February 2015 - 04:47 PM

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.

People who ask for money and give nothing in return are pathetic losers, simple as that.
I know it might be harsh, but there is no better way to put it.
Being at a low level isn't an excuse, if you are at a low level and don't know how to make money, ask for help.

w0w someone picking a fight with a certain feline moderator I see


No clue which one, but well, status doesn't really matter imo, begging isn't really nice, personally wouldn't call them losers though :P


Also keep in mind that the first player to 200M all got there by begging as well XD.

#5545398 [16-2-15] Ninja Update – Return of the Wildywyrm

Posted by essiw on 22 February 2015 - 03:33 PM


(((total lvl * (1)^2) / (0+1)^2)-total lvl)-1+2= that many points added on as a reward after each task!!

wait a [bleep]ing second


So erm maybe I am missing something but isn't that formula the same as (total lvl * 1) / 1 - total lvl - 1 + 2 which is the same as -1 + 2 which always is 1... ( or I am killing the joke :P )
