I highly recommend you not go to worlds 1/2/3 varrock, it'll kill what little faith you have in humanity. i can name you at least 15-20 people who have been given advice that literally then do precisely what they were warned not to and turned into scammers/beggars

@ UrekMazino,

That's what I meant by:
"So yes I think they should have been a little suspicious that what they believed was best wasn't recommended to them, but I also think they were unlucky in a big way."
They should have been suspicious that what wikia said was very different to the advice offered on that thread.

Another change, made in early October last year, is that Jagex decided to partner with the creators of the Wikia.

The result is a new, official wiki. Hover over the
Game Guide
button at the top of the forums, and you'll find a link.

Unfortunately, the old Wikia (which you reference) is now abandoned and outdated.


Same outdated as the new one every kid seems to praise. It is same old articles and even M&S one is constructed without basic research and testing.
I don't trust easily, so when I tell you I trust you, don't make me regret it.

Quite frankly, the whole 'items turned into tokens' mess is a waste of developer time. There was absolutely no need. Those excess items would eventually have left the game anyway. It was just more 'expedient' to get the old stuff out by 'inventing' these tokens. Also note you cannot use tokens to buy the left hand versions of your items; they must be smithed or bought from G.E. This token conversion put a blot on an otherwise good smithing update.

I'd argue against that, on the grounds that tokens gave the players the option of getting the actual item back or getting what the item was worth when alch'd pre-rework.

As long as they didn't blatantly ignore advice and fail to inform themselves after being hounded constantly to do so in-game via fanatics, the tokens wouldn't have affected anyone's wealth negatively whereas leaving the items untouched would have.

I agree the off-hand is kinda meh, but they're a helluva lot easier to make now and not that big of a deal to re-obtain regardless.

I can guarantee you way more players would have been pissed if they didn't give tokens and simply left the items as-is and all their values dropped dramatically.

I considered the referenced advice given me, but was dumbfounded when I looked at the September wiki and did my own math. Thought I could come out with a little more - greedy yes.
