Very annoying though, because in order to get parcels you have to get xp every so often. Really they should change it so that every D&D or minigame played also awards a parcel (or has a chance of doing so), then hopefully that should cover most players. (since a lot of stuff give xp even if very little, so questing is probably included here)


Or they can make it so a parcel is given out every 5 min or so of gaining xp like some of these promos do.

Sure, but then that negatively impacts players who happen not to be doing something that gives xp every so often, but are still actively engaging in gameplay. Like Conquest, or miscellaneous achievement hunting, or doing a quest with lots of dialogue.

Try getting xp in the wild to see if it works.

Wild update and bounty hunter got moved in just when parcels returned.

Coincidence? Too good a coincidence to be true.

Also I have proof:

Using a div-o-matic gets you constant xp but only on cursed wisps in the wild.

Ive gotten 1 parcel every 30 seconds to 1 minute using div-o-matics at cursed wisps.

Well this is just a lie and a lure.

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

It is true that divination gives rapid xp. You get it from siphoning wisps with a div-o-matic and using the crater without.

However, you do NOT need to:
a) Use a div-o-matic unless you want to afk without having to run to a crater
b) Siphon from cursed wisps in the wild

Also, I’ve yet to see 1 parcel every 30 seconds rofl.

I’m getting like 10 an hour at incandescent without a div-o-matic (need the energies to make porters)

I think it must be a mix of things, glad to see others observe the inconsistency. O_o

I occasionally will get one from sporadic and spaced out light skilling, however its usually not even one an hour this way. When I camped a runespan for 15 mins of siphoning, I did get a parcel.

Factors of note, from observation and others testimony.

• Experience must be earned to trigger a delivery.
• Constant/rapid flow skilling activities seems to yield more frequent deliveries.
• There may be a threshold of actions or experience earned that is not formally noted in correlation.

I don't think I'll keep grinding for the rapid-gain to parcels strategy. I'll keep doing the sporadic and hope I get an extra parcel or two a day. Here's hoping if I get 200 stamps and buy a large/huge, that we don't get the protean Zonk! prize.
O.P. of Un-pack Packs!!
