Congratulations on getting to 99 Dungeoneering Threes! I knew you would do it...eventually...once you defeated that Big Boss called Laziness! :p Just kidding! No bossing for you though, not as a level 3. That is wild!

I have been mentoring a friend who has recently gotten into DG. She was at DG 38 when she started training the skill. Before that, all her DG XP was from lamps and from that Christmas event where you transformed into a seal to slide across an ice maze. She has worked through to complexity 6, and last I knew was at DG 44. Her main goal is DG 45, so she can access the resource dungeon in the Mining Guild. However, now she's saying she may go for DG 50, so she can use three bound items.

What suggestions might you have for her as far as items to be bound? Normally, she ranges. However, she has taken to using melee while Dungeoneering. Her current binds are a zeph platebody and plateskirt. I believe her intention is to bind a zeph weapon next. Does this sound like a good plan to you? It's been so long since I trained DG to a significant amount, all my binds are still fractite! O_o

Thanks in advance for any DG wisdom you might have to impart, and again well done on the 99! :D

Oh, and she only does DG solo, just like me. Maybe she'd be open to trying it in a group though. I'm not sure on that.

Actually, magic is best and most effective dps in F2P! Your friend may try to bind these if melee with range: Argonite maul / Argonite 2h / Argonite main-hand and off-hand knives! They're currently the strongest and best tier for F2P DG! Better is to bind cosmic runes for gatestone so you can teleport back to a location if you reach a dead-end or gate a keydoor!


I saw on the home page today they made some changes to DG. I haven't read the patch notes yet, but unless they just changed it, which I doubt they would, F2P cannot bind argonite items, as they are level 60. Substitute zephyrium for aragonite, and you've got a good plan for F2P. She used aragonite knives on the lowest complexities. They were pretty good against the easier bosses, but the tougher ones required her to switch to melee, she said.

Ammo and runes can be bound without counting towards the bound items limit, right?

That's a lot of prayer training, Threes! Are you just burying bones and spreading ashes by hand, or using other methods like cremation or The Nexus?

In any event, that's a lot of work. Well done! There you go again, not being lazy! :p

Holy Moly! Good work, Threes!

By the way, I've been training DG quite a bit lately. I found out you were right: F2P can bind aragonite armor/weapons, as I have done so myself! I'm still not sure why my first attempt a while back, trying to bind an aragonite 2h, didn't work. The item never went into the bind pool. A glitch, I guess. Now I have an aragonite full helm, platebody, platelegs, and a spear all bound, along with zephyrium main and off-hand longswords for dual wielding. I upgraded my hatchet and pickaxe to zeph, as I've not found any aragonite versions of those yet.

It's too bad F2P can only use up to 3 bound armor/weapon items (4 if dual wielding) at a time. Sure, we can swap them around depending on what else we find. Still, it's annoying. So is not being able to move bound items around on your setup bar. You have to clear the items, then re-add them if you want to reorder them. It's even more annoying not to be able to organize the bind pool. They stay in the order in which they were added, and the only way to achieve a different order is by destroying bound items and getting them again. Bah!

So I was looking over the DG journals I've found, and I'm missing a few from the first 30 floors. 2 of them I know the specific boss to beat in order to have a 1 in 4 chance of getting the journal drop. However, one of them, M and Thok letter part 3, seems to be a completely random drop, from what I read on the Wiki. Do you know if that's true, or is there a way you know of to increase my chances of finding this drop?

By the way, I am really close to DG 74! I'm about 2400 XP away!

Congrats Threes! :) So which skill or skills will you be working on next?

As for the journals, no worries. After my previous post, I ended up finding the answer on a different Wiki page from the one I'd read before. I now know I need to search floors 12 through 17, plus 25 and 26, in order to track down the journals I missed earlier.

However, this plan has revealed another problem with F2P DG:

I hadn't really noticed before, but last night when I went to the interface to adjust the floor I wanted to raid next, I saw the button used to reset prestige is now gone! I know this used to be possible in F2P. Did Jagex remove the ability for us to reset prestige, or am I missing something? If Jagex did inflict this unnecessary penalty upon F2P, it must have really taken a lot of DG training with a prestige of 0 to reach level 99 after you had done floor 35! O_o

I had previously reset my prestige long ago, after having done floors 1-28. I started over at floor 1 and went through floor 30, to unlock floor 31. It was at this point I decided to go back and look for those missing journals. If I can no longer reset my prestige, it's going to take much longer to reach DG 75 with my prestige stuck at 0! :o

Do you know if I have to unlock floor 35 before being allowed to reset my prestige as F2P, or has that ability been taken away from F2P completely?

Ah, so maybe now you'll consider returning to Forum Games? I post there a bit now and then, but honestly it's been pretty quiet there recently. The place needs more 3s!

Yeah, I recall where the reset button used to be. I don't see it there anymore. My current progress is at 30, having unlocked floor 31. My previous progress is 28. I presume you must have made it all the way through floor 35 several times. As an F2P, did you ever have a problem not being able to reset your prestige? Maybe it's a bug, and I should report it?

Never mind, I figured it out.

Apparently, the interface window had been slightly resized since the last time I actively trained DG. The window was shortened just enough to hide the reset button, making it look like the button was gone. On a whim, I unlocked my interface setup, then lengthened the window a little bit...and the reset button became visible again!

I'm glad I didn't submit a bug report. This time, I was the problem and the solution! O_o :p

Only 8,180 more forum posts for you to reach 33,333 posts!

When you reach that milestone, you HAVE to celebrate it.

Laziness is not allowed when it comes to honoring all those 3's. I'm pretty sure the church of The Holy Trinity will be expecting you to do so. No doubt they are also pleased by your Prayer level 3x33! ;)

Threes, have you tried Dungeoneering at the Summer Skill-Off in Lumbridge Crater? If you haven't yet, you really should check it out. This is the ultimate in DG laziness! :p

Actually, the entire event is RS laziness. You literally click on a skilling spot and just watch the XP add up. The DG one is the best one. At least that gives you occasional messages to entertain you.

I just wish this was around back when I was at DG 72, looking to reach level 75! :o

Looks great but I'm lazy to double click the game client! :D


Nooo! :o Threes you must fight off this laziness, at least for the next couple of days! DG won the Lumbridge Crater Skill-Off event! The XP bonus in the DG hole is up to +50% now, so it's time to make the most of it before this event ends Sunday night at game reset!

The XP gains are higher for those with higher skill levels. At DG 99 with the +50% bonus, you would be earning an amazing amount of XP...but if you were using pulse cores and skill-off tokens too, your XP rates would be unbelievable! You could get DG 120!

Come along, Threes! Get your butt down there and scoop up all that XP just waiting for you! The crazy DG messages are something else I think you'd enjoy. :)

Don't miss out! You can be lazy later. :p

You never know what you can achieve until you try, Threes!

This is the ultimate in lazy DG - it's perfect for you! It's all over at tonight's reset. You got to go for it! :)

Please join in the DG fun! You can't die. You can't even get hurt. You won't gain combat XP, or XP in anything else but DG.

You might find a ferret, or 200M coins. The ferret bites you and runs off. You feel betrayed. Also, you immediately drop the 200M coins. Clumsy! :p

You might even find the skill door that requires DG level 121 to open. O_o

Time's running out! Now jump in that hole! :o

So, I take it you've not been taking advantage of DG Week this week, earning double tokens and not being penalized on your XP for dying?

Oh, I saw the triple rainbow pic you posted in OT. Very cool! I've not seen one like that before. You must have been quite pleased when you saw there were THREE rainbows! :)
