Yes, I'll go through this thread when I have time to relive the memories :')! I'll share the best bits in the new thread. Remember also that this is where I met you!

The guy who left in the video said "I had fun though", but you are not going anywhere! Right??? We just make a new thread and nothing will change. I am not planning to retire as long as people give positive feedback like above on this page!

You probably didn't mean it that way, but ironically, saying nothing will change is actually a part of the problem: if nothing changes, it means the decline in activity is going to continue, or at the very least isn't going to improve. Imagine an xy-axis graph, with x-axis being the time displayed since the beginning of this service to the present, and y-axis being the combined activity (# of active bumpers, % of bumps made per week, % of active thread owners). If you were to draw a line that shows the combined activity over time, it'd show a continuous decline in the long term.

While the # of bumped threads grew significantly of all things, it wasn't really a sign of activity, but rather a result of thread owners being allowed to leave their thread in our hands to maintain, giving them the option to go inactive without consequence.

I can imagine it being fine if I just bumped less often and expected less, but you know...

Anyhow, first 30 covered.

It really depends on more variables; e.g. if it's a G&A thread and the person hasn't posted on the forums for over a year, probably not. But if they were active then probably yeah.

Yeah, it was about their drop rates (getting their voyages) being broken; it was supposed to be 1/100, but I remember going a lot more dry than that, so I even repeatedly tried to get the question answered on a Twitch stream. Eventually the host jmod guy (who quit Jagex long time ago) picked it up, only for the jmods present at that stream to be like "uh, we don't know, maybe ask Mod Rowley?". Much later Mod Rowley came and answered it.

Found out just recently that the range meta excels even when it comes to 3rd age equipment; they are generally crappy across the board, but the bow is actually BiS when it comes to optimal gp/xp ranged slayer training:

https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/3rd_age_bow

Blowpipe is more exp/hour, but it costs so much more gp/xp that it really isn't worth it for use with non-boss monsters. And compared to the next bow in line, magic shortbow (i), 3rd age bow has 5 more ranged attack bonus and 2 tiles further attack range, with equal attack speed and damage. 3rd age bow also looks pretty neat, it's like a budget tbow! > )

EDIT: Re-checked and 3rd age bow could have 5 more ranged strength too if you used dragon arrows, but amethyst arrows are much cheaper and the difference in damage is very small.

Merry Christmas!

No idea what's going on... Zul-andra teleports skyrocketed to ~46k each from 20k each, while Zulrah's scales have dropped significantly, from 185 each to 145 each. Why would people pay so much for teleports to a boss that isn't so profitable currently?

Yeah, that's definitely the right place and I was going to bring that up as well! I laughed when I saw that. It looked cool first since it's a forum competition and you can actually participate via the forums without Twitter or Instagram, but image the chances of winning if you have one raffle ticket and the guy next to you has 32 additional bonus tickets!

That, and the fact that they once again went back on their word with the dailyscape thing. It just makes me question whether the "comp cape rework" that was advertised on the 2019 introduction is really going to happen or not, because some years ago, Mod Osborne had already laid out a pretty solid plan, "comp - statement of intent", making guidelines on how comp reqs should be handled and what to do with existing reqs, but it was just dropped and completely forgotten about, just like dailyscape reductions seem to be now.

Jk, no I didn't! Cool fact and ty for sharing, which stream was that btw?

Personally I think it could've been fine to have Rimmington as an alternative starting location; I remember when me and my IRL friends used to roleplay living on various locations across Runescape all those years ago (IIRC around the time when Runescape HD was still new), and Rimmington + the farm south of Falador were our favorites. Lumbridge is iconic now of course, but the other two places we found pretty cozy too.

It was the 18th birthday special livestream that took place yesterday; at first they showed some memorable RS videos on Youtube, and then the Gowers and Ash joined Shauny on the couch.

Hmm, so this is a funny thing; Santa Vorkath hasn't been giving me anything of worth, but I managed to get a new personal best time that's under 1 minute, without even trying (I was killing him as usual and almost missed the message entirely).



I already had one before as you can see, which was achieved by actually trying, but the thing is, it already requires crazy RNG even if you properly try to get a sub-minute kill, and when you're "casually" killing Vorkath, it's close to impossible, because not only is your accuracy a lot worse because you don't use special attacks to lower his defense, but you also don't risk attacking Vorkath during the poison phase which further reduces dps. I was quite literally hitting around 75 with each and every hit but didn't think much of it during the kill.

A guy on Youtube actually made a lengthy explanation on this if you're interested:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6lGbxGW1zQ

Kinda ironic though that he didn't manage to get it. > )

Jokku23 said:
So previous kill was 2:12 and the next kill 0:55 with the same amount of trying? :O

Yeah, because even with BiS gear and max stats, your accuracy is far from 100% and the damage range you can inflict is so high that the average hit you do deal is only half of your max hit, since all values in that range have an equal chance of being used:

79.58% accuracy
74 max hit/37 average hit (or 85 max hit/42.5 average hit with diamond bolt proc)
10.294 DPS

From DPS alone, if you could damage Vorkath all the time, your average kill speed would be roughly 73 seconds (1:13) with those stats. But like was explained during the video, during ice phase you can't damage Vorkath at all, and during poison phase you only deal half the damage (if you even bother trying due to the risk), so in reality your DPS and average kill speed will be slightly worse if you include the whole fight and not just the parts where you can damage him as normal.

Based on my personal experience, the true average kill speed with those stats (casually, so no defense specs or attacking during poison phase) is 1:50. Anything faster than 1:05 and anything slower than 2:35 are outlier kill times. Fastest Vorkath kill I've ever seen is 42 seconds, and I believe it's impossible to beat until/if powercreep changes the Vorkath meta again.

Kebos lowlands update hit OSRS, and as predicted, the alchemical hydra boss has very high magic level and okay range defense = twisted bow meta. Price jumped by almost 100m from before release, and scythe dropped in price, so the two ultimate weapons are now almost equally priced! > )

On the other hand, dragon hunter crossbow dipped by about 50m since it wasn't as good.

I figured that meta means most effective tactic available! Cheers!

Have you tried the new boss and did you get anything good?

Did 30 kills yesterday, got nothing special yet though. :P

It's similar to Zulrah, where you constantly move around the arena and switch prayers, and its drop table seems similar to Zulrah's too (we don't have drop rates yet but the rare drops would seem to be 1/512 like with Zulrah, excluding pet of course). It requires more concentration than Zulrah and Vorkath though, and it sucks that you have to use the new mid-tier slayer master to be able to get a task for it and so be able to kill it. I was lucky to get it as my second task, it's roughly 4% chance to be assigned with no block list.

EDIT: Well I guess I got lucky:



It's only worth ~3.7m as an individual piece though, assuming that the ring it's used to make with (https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Brimstone_ring) has roughly stabilized in its price. In comparison, hydra's leather is worth 16m and is used to make new BiS melee gloves that surpass previous BiS barrows gloves, and hydra's claw is worth 80m, which is used to make dragon hunter lance (with zamorakian hasta).

I see how it is Jagex...



The price of the ring has started dropping again, at the time I'm typing this those pieces are now worth ~3.4m each. I guess Jagex's ultimate plan is to troll me by giving me 2/3 of the pieces needed and then deny the last part, so that I can only watch the price drop whilst desperately trying to get the last piece. > )

Jokku23 said:
Is it possible to get duplicate pieces before getting all three? That would be the troll plan.

No, you always get a new piece.

And the ring is now bouncing between 8m and 10m... people found out that the ring's magic defense reduction proc stacked and it could be used to drain the target's magic level down to pretty much zero without any extra effort. Then Jagex hotfixed it so that the proc only works for the attack that it procs on, rather than permanently reducing the magic level, so now the ring is back to being mostly useless for the time being. :P

Yuck!

Heh, ironmen are very grateful to Zamorak now though, because it's easier to obtain the lance on your own and it's more efficient for them to use dragon hunter lance than crossbow. > )

Jokku23 said:
Is that really the best strategy? This sounds very surprising - I assume there are some expensive high level chins then?

Yeah, it really is, and though there are black chinchompas that are the best of all chinchompas, even red chinchompas work well. Both of them have a ranged attack bonus similar to armadyl crossbow and twisted bow at Kree (the bows being the next best choice after chins), but the chins can be thrown almost twice as fast (1.8s vs 3s attack speed), and the chins only have to roll against level 160-175 defence (with no defensive bonuses) of the minions, while the bows have to roll against level 260 defence (with 200 ranged defense bonus) of Kree. Chins have a much lower ranged strength, but it's fine since the bows land so many misses before a successful hit. Without the minions, both types of weapons would have to roll against Kree's defence, which would make the chins useless.

Also, since you get attacked by all combat styles and can only protect against one with prayer (which has to be range given how deadly Kree's range attack is), chins can get rid of at least one bodyguard during the fight (usually people pick the melee one since the ranged armor is weakest to melee), resulting in less damage taken than with bows. :P

Nice RNG in your story, in a way it fits; you shouldn't waste chins on just training ranged, since it's easy enough to train ranged and profit at the same time. Blowpipe and dhcb at Vorkath are an excellent choice for one!

Went to DKS today for my first ever DKS slayer task (been there once before to kill each king once for the elite task, but no kills beyond that), and in true Jagex trolling fashion, can you guess the only notable drop that I managed to get?



Watching OSRS Youtubers, they always get showered with rings, even if it's just warrior rings, so maybe I should become a content creator like that to actually get proper drops from DKS? > )

Btw, twisted bow is very OP against Prime; constant 50-60 hits on rapid, while still maintaining the ability to attack from longest range possible. Lower level players' best option is blowpipe, which is decent dps too, but its short attack range makes it risky that Supreme is gonna wander close enough to you while you're still dealing with Prime.

Nothing. > )

Personally I think they should've called it a tail whip, since a bone theme doesn't really fit the hydra, and people probably would expect a bone theme from a skeleton boss or something.

The hydra tail is probably gonna remain useless for the foreseeable future. Technically it's an upgrade since it allows you to wear the bonecrusher with dragonbone necklace, but since the necklace is useless compared to other amulets like glory and fury, the tail is useless too.

Decreased from 900k to 60k. It's unlikely to reach the 60k mark anytime soon, since even if nothing else, at such a low price people might as well keep them on the off chance that the tail is made more useful again.

So here's something new: an early poll blog was released today for Prif in OSRS, and it revealed that the OSRS team is possibly trying to get Helwyr to OSRS in a way.

Helwyr as you probably know is a GWD2 boss in RS3, and people generally like to connect Helwyr into a crystal wolf-like beast (because it's what you essentially fight there). But in actuality, Helwyr is just the elf who transforms to the beast, and he learned that ability by slaying the beast that looks like Helwyr when he's transformed.

Now, here's how it potentially connects to OSRS: the devs here are looking into making a new solo PvM challenge to the OSRS Prif, which is essentially like dungeoneering except that 1) skill levels aren't required to do anything, higher levels are just advantageous, and 2) there's a time limit after which you face... a crystal wolf-like boss, named Hunleff, the same beast that Helwyr slayed in RS3! > )

One of the biggest desires that I miss on OSRS is the ability to fight Helwyr, and though it wouldn't technically be Helwyr because he's just the elf, it looks like it'll be finally happening!

So regarding your guess for the pet:



You guessed correctly, but what made you guess it was Rex? I mean I get that Rex is the most killed King because tribiders always kill him, and an equally or more common method is to only kill Rex, but you knew that I was tribiding the Kings too, right? And as you can see, I had pretty much equal kc among the Kings, so it could've easily been any of them. :P

Or did you know that Jagex would troll me by giving me my least favorite King pet?


Other than that, the task (163 kills / 54 Prime 54 Supreme 55 Rex) was a great monetary success; everything except one dragon axe that I showed before was obtained from this task.

Not even partial support / conditional support?

Sire, I can only help you our way in this case.

First 28 covered.

But… pleeeeeeeease!!!!!!!!

Sire, I'm a... fine. If you participate in the internet world war by subscribing to PewDiePie on Youtube (and remain subscribed until he hits the 100 million subscriber mark), I'll conditionally support your idea. Agreed?

If you don't know what the internet world war is, you can find more information here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PewDiePie_vs_T-Series

But basically, Youtube for a couple years now has been treating individual creators worse in favor for corporations to take over the platform, and by trying to take over India's internet market, Google has made Youtube advertise T-Series (a music and film corporation) much more than its loyal creators like PewDiePie, who's currently still #1 most subscribed channel but not far from losing the spot to T-Series. By helping PewDiePie reach 100m subscribers first, it's a milestone that Youtube has to acknowledge, or Google proves that the soul of Youtube is dead if it still doesn't acknowledge its biggest creator.

So, even though the channels that battle each other are PewDiePie and T-Series, in reality it's almost the whole world against Google. > )

I have heard about that, but I could never have imagined that his supporters were extorted this way :(

Forcing desperate sweepers to subscribe would ruin the achievement. :(

I watched his vid "bitch lasagna" on his channel and the guy seems to be just flaming T-Series? I don't want to subscribe. I really don't. But I would do it if they let me build a room for Anja. I'd do anything. But just for your conditional support, I will not do it if I have to wait till he reaches 100m subs.

But I consider subscribing to T-Series if you don't support me! See, I can be like this too! And I will do anything for Anja! 8)

I wasn't sure which way you'd go, but I'm glad you disagreed; hopefully now you'll understand that perspective as well from first-hand experience. Sometimes it's better to be neutral.

Currently I have nothing else to give you that you'd want. Farewell, Sire.

Okay, what the actual ****? Remember that max cash bug that caused OSRS to be shut down for like 6 hours whilst Jagex worked out how to resolve it?

Well, now we got a twisted bow bug, where people could literally pick unlimited amount of twisted bows from a spawn on the ground, and the game was completely shut down again whilst Jagex tries to decide what to do about it. Geez...

EDIT:



Apparently it was going on for a couple of hours before Jagex decided to shut the game down, I only learned of it when I was killing the hydra and a mere 5-minute system update timer hit... :P

As much as I like free stuff (and would accept free twisted bows), I don't approve bugs because I am so legit.

Is it just me or does it seem obvious to you that there are some other corrupt Jmods than Mod Reach and Mod Jed? :o

Would be interesting to hear an explanation of why it happened…

Mod Kieren bought a new car just recently, RWT money perhaps? > )

Anyway, spoilers if you didn't know, how Jagex resolved the bug:

Cerberus meme was better! Speaking of Cerberus, I always think of Fluffy in Harry Potter though!

Still waiting for the pet. :P

Cute bump :)


Wolves asleep amidst the trees,
Bats all a-swaying in the breeze,
But one soul lies anxious, wide awake,
Fearing all manner of ghouls, hags and wraiths

Well, at least you got your art, it was just over a year late!

I got lucky, Kalaya disappeared to thin air soon after that. Ta!

You can guess what the picture would say in my case:
1. Plz let me build room for Anja!
2. Plz let me save the sweepers from Black Knights' Fortress
3. Plz return my Christmas cracker and blue partyhat banner!

Speaking of Anja, they made her into a real thing (and you could argue Hengel too):

Anja didn't give in to greed. > )


But what's that third one about?

Amazing, not only did we get a new bird meme, but it has audio as well!

https://redd.it/b0j515

Zeah music > )


Still trying to figure out how to directly link Reddit videos properly, only possible to link either just the video with no audio or just the audio so far.

I don't know the rules so otherwise I didn't really understand, but cheers!

Quick summary of how it works is pretty well described here:
https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wall_Suomi

Most people tend to have a gambling addiction (who would've guessed) and they tear up the contract, but Anja was one of the exceptions who signed it instead. :P

Ta,

Oh, I thought you had an actual Christmas cracker (the item) and it was scammed from you or something. > )

10k?

Hoarder!

You never know, if Jagex added it, the amount required could easily be more than just a hundred. 1k would probably be most realistic, since it'd be a good balance of not being too easy nor too hard, but even 10k I could still see happening. 100k would be way too much, unrealistic even for ironmen. :P

I really love that event, especially now that they made ring of huge parcel buyable with post stamps. But... I'm not getting even daily parcels... :(

If you really loved it though, why not go P2P? > )

(I mean I'm fairly sure I know why, but then just how much do you really love the event?)
