SirPugger recently released a video covering bots that buy from shops. I would offer the suggestion of making these shop discounts available strictly to iron men.

You wanna buy 10m worth of mithril ore? Fine. Have fun doing that on an iron man.

Do real players even use the shops? I don't. I certainly don't try to do arbitrage with the shops.

EDIT: 2019-09-06.

I was thinking it might be problematic to set shop prices to buying price in the GE.

It might make prices more volatile, but there's still the high alch price of items.

Like, at the very least; the prices of alchable drops like rune armor and dragon weapons (besides claws obviously) should be resistant to changing.

I would expect there to be consequences of SOME kind to this sort of change, but the real question is "is it gonna be worse than the bots?". I doubt it.

Yeah, well not all people are that unintelligent. Buy it from the GE lmao.
Why? its cheaper, meaning its smarter to buy from the shop.
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

No, it's more expensive. In the time you waste, you'd be better off making 12m/hr at ToB. It's called opportunity cost. It takes a bit of IQ to understand, but taking a middle school class on economics may help you comprehend the concept.

As an ironman I don't really want the game made easier just for me. I guess I don't really understand the issue. There are shops that you can go to such as the rune shop on moonclan island that not many bots have access to Bring back Stealing Creation! (with reworked non-OP rewards)

ToB has nothing to do with getting smithing exps. I buy the coal at the blast furnace because it makes smithing more viable. The ge cost 125. while the store cost 100 or less. Since I do not sell it, it doesn't matter how much I can buy from ToB profits.

There are no classes in middle school for economics. I guess you never got that far.

IF your an ironman, why are you buying the ore instead of mining them.

I think I might just have figured out your problem. Are you buying them from the ore store in Jatizso? That store likely often has bots. I have never seen the shop in the blast furnace with less than 100 mithril ores. It is more expensive, but if you use the blast furnace, you use half the coal so it is better.
