As a 15 year veteran maxed players, I think Treasure Hunter hardly gives any xp or bonus xp comparing to normal game play. For instance, a daily challenge of Dungeoneering gives me 170k xp in 3-4 minutes and you can also do Sink Hole for similar xp each trip. And then you have weekly and monthly activities that give mega xp... such as the Char Training Weekly that gives upward of 700k xp.

Now, look at what you get from a usual TH xp lamp? 8.6k xp... Even if you are lucky you get a "large" one that is still only 40kxp. That's hardly anything.

Rest assured, I think Jagex is selling xp and it is not going to be changed since every other online game is doing the same thing and they sell for more, but the complaint is just overblown since the xp they sell is just a drop in the bucket comparing to just a few minutes of regular game play.


u might wanna look on runeclan from time to time, especially the "op xp promos" people are getting over 120M XP A DAY!!! when i buy lava lanterns 450 keys gets me a minimum of 3m xp. MINIMUM


But these "special" promotions don't run often and it costs a lot of money to get 450 keys... and even 3 million is not a lot in many fast leveling skills such as dungeoneering and firemaking.

What is the bubble you live in and how do I get one? Because if 24/7 for months isn't "often" for you, then what the hell is? Take a good look at this:



Since 29th of August (and even before then, I just wanted to take an image quickly), we've had 24/7 exp sellout promotions. 24/7. And half of the promotions you see in that image had smouldering lamps in them.

Please wake up to the reality and understand that it is physically impossible to compete against someone who buys lots of keys.

Let's be honest, they're hoping we stick around until when mobile comes out. If it's successful, they won't care if we all quit because they'll have a new generation of players that are used to MTX being shoved down their throat.

A conspiracy theory I'd actually believe! > )

...we are starting a rework of Treasure Hunter, which will have greater emphasis on cosmetics and conveniences.

This sounds particularly nice.

Does it though? Conveniences sounds exactly like pay-to-win to me; it could be e.g. some kind of consumable items that double your damage for X duration in PvM.

You are talking like you are barely making the cut with salary and tax payments... You made 30 million pounds (after taxes) PURE PROFIT.


Wow. Source?

UK-based RuneScape developer Jagex posted its latest financial report today, calling 2016 its “second successive financial year of record revenue performance.” The company claims 28% year-on-year growth “to a new high of £74.4m” as of December.

“Profit after tax saw growth to £28.8m, while profits excluding exceptional costs were £37.8m, representing growth of 21.5% and 50% respectively over FY 2015, itself a record year that saw revenues of £57.9m; revenues for FY 2014 were £44.9m.”

Even if they did remove MTX the community would still find something to complain about lel

Well, the sad reality is that no game can ever be perfect, so yeah, complaints are something that will always happen. However, a lot more people would play if they removed MTX, because MTX is a major game integrity damaging issue that drives people away. So yeah, it'd still be a huge improvement to remove the MTX, or even TH alone. > )

I'm concerned now that Jagex is for sale, more stupid promos will happen to make more revenue

There's not much space left for Jagex to go before they break the camel's back; premier club was underselling this time, so they extended it in desperation, and temporary event/promo spam hasn't hooked enough people, so they've had to make them grindier too.

If the new owner is intelligent, they'll learn to be responsible with the game, and if they're stupid from greed, they'll dig their own grave. > )
