After few hours merching days ago, I noticed some simple Items are being bought for an unbelievable price,


Like beers, common beer, used for nothing than fill your face,
1,000+ each

Bronze pickaxes, nobody need them, everybody start with one,
But somebody is buying for 1,400+

And many others like tinderboxes, kitchen knives, saws..


Why those items are so expensive?
Why somebody is buying them?
Is it for Invention?

Help me, my curiosity is killing me!

half are like due to invention.........good for parts

other are just pump and dump/collections
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

With the weather we are experiencing now, beer will always be in demand.

Beer will actually dehydrate you because of the alcohol =')

as answer to this thread however alot of those things you name sound like someone is just collecting them to have big stacks of them i myself used to collect bronze pickaxes and hatchets at exorbitant prices like those dont need em just want em in massive quantitys who woudnt love 1mill bronze picks or even more, as for tinderboxes they can be used for summoning to make pyrefiends; knives and other tools seem purely just to collect as with the pickaxes same with beers

Something like half of all the items in Runescape have gone up in price since Invention, because people are dis-assembling lots of things for their component parts. Over 200 discontinued items have been issued. Most of them are rarer than a Santa Hat.
Over 4000 Partyhat trades in a month. Waiting for more to be re-issued.
