In regards to item PCs, how do I know who is trustworthy and legit in terms of legitimate item pcs? I know for sure I can trust Theos, as fmods never manip. How would I find out who's legit for discontinued item pcs when I don't know any merchers and don't like entering PC FC's?

My advice would be to gather data from multiple sources, rather than trying to find a single most reliable source. You'll generally be able to make a more informed decision based on the data points you're looking at where if you're just trying to look at a single point, you'll never know how accurate or inaccurate that data may be.

Fmods can manipulate, idk where you're getting that crazy assumption from. They are held to a higher standard on the forums, so they shouldn't manip. And they can get punished if caught.

As to answer your post, just look at many prices, other sources like the other dude said.

This actually did happen to a friend of mine who was an FMod. He did that exact thing, was caught and lost his status.

As for finding accurate prices - those fc's/clans/forum threadsare dealing with constant trading of these discontinued prices. A lot of people post screenshots of each others trade to prevent scamming/manipulation. If you're looking for a particular item, just go back on the thread a few pages, collect a few price ranges of what the item bought/sold for, and then you should have a rough idea of what it's worth.

That's the nature of the world you're in right now something a lot of players never want but were forced into by Jagex. Happy RWT-ing.

You can't do enough research to find out prices. More you do the better you will feel when buying or selling items.

If and when I plan a big trade I may take 2-3 months doing research. Checking GE graph prices, ID prices incase they are getting PC'd and asking friends.

After I've done all that I will go ahead and do the trade knowing I've done all my research to get the best deal for me.

Did I say you can never do enough research. It really does help and work.
