You can cashout your lamps for oddments.

you can't do it once the lamp is placed in the inventory.
and can't know its a members' object until it gets into your inventory.

this is a rigged, bloody hot mess and its completely anti-consumer.
since it was the usual daily free key. im willing to forget and move on.

but it that shit happened with a purchased key? i would have been extremely mad and demanded a refund
where is the integrity jagex???


I’m sure there will be something in the small print or terms of use that say some items are only useable with a members account. If you have been playing for 10 years I find it hard to believe you didn’t know about Th vs free accounts.

@Baller69,

This is MTX scape. Jagex won't change so it is best to stop holding your breath as you'll only turn blue as a smurf and remain pissed off. You can cash large and huge lamps/stars for oddments and purchase the medium ones from that store.

It really sickens me when you
CM
s come on here to blatantly lie. Jagex has been crapping on F2P like this since 2013 with Squeal of Fortune... they don't give a damn about F2P! This goes back to IVP before their intellectual property was sold to China.

For years there have been requests from both members and F2P to remove all mumber items from TH that were not bankable. Jagex doesn't doesn't and won't do this.

Stop being such a damn lair on behalf of Jagex... they can lie for themselves! If you can't say something truthful, don't say anything thing at all.
Jagex 2019 New Year Resolution... MTX our customers until RS3 SERVER SHUTDOWN PARTY!
The RS3 Community is treated like :@RUBBISH:@ due to constant TH promotions.

Don't buy keys on Treasure Hunter, if you do Jagex will only make more TH promotions :(

what a filthy disgusting lie.
you don't give a shit about us, at least be honest about it and stop pretending.

the Christmas even giant cracker also gives unbankable unsuable xp lamps. so that's proof you don't listen to F2P's even though they are the ones supposed to be enticed into purchasing membership

Rule of thump - small and medium lamps are f2p - and well lamps for p2p skills shouldn't be too much of use to you.

It's not 'dead weight'. Just destroy them. No loss on your end. Unless you bought keys without learning of such an 'issue'. In which case, sucks to be you, great to be a Chinese investor.

I too, have been troubled by such an issue. When I returned from runescape from my nearly 6/7 year hiatus, I tried out the treasure hunter, and its honestly a great idea. However at the time, I received unbankable and untradeable items so I was locked of a skill like dungeoneering which remains as one of my favorite skills to play. To make matters worse, the items themselves don't indicate whether or not they can be used by free to plays. Yes, they may have the symbol within the treasure hunter interface, but they don't have the programming that allows free to plays to use them. Actions speak louder than words in this case.

Its in this circumstance that I offer a few solutions to this problem of free to plays receiving members items they cant do anything with unless they become members;

1.) Allow claimed member rewards to be broken down into treasure key fragments which allows players to recycle their keys and ultimately reshuffle their reward every 3 or 4 key fragments collected. Basically, 3 or 4 key fragments = one complete key. This prevents people from abusing a recycling system by reshuffling rewards they don't want, but at the same time not excluding players who receive rewards they can do absolutely nothing with.

2.) Remove all members items from the free to play treasure hunter. This option will exclude stars and lamps that said players can do nothing with in the first place.

3.) Update the item descriptions in stating what is member and what is free to play within treasure hunter. As it currently stands, the advertising for treasure hunter keys and its rewards is misleading as it gives all players the notion they can benefit from the rewards it offers. This could be pursued as a lawsuit of false advertising which would probably give the runescape team more of a headache than it already needs, highlighting the urgency of the team to address this issue. Otherwise, they leave themselves wide open to a legal challenge.
