.. Put a rune in each slot, all 3 must be filled for feedback.
= Confers most vix possible per slot, but NOT necessarily best profit
= yer a poophead, harry
Each day, slot 1 will be the same green for everyone (give most vix, 30/30).
Slot 2 has 3 runes listed. Your green will be 1 of them, so through trial and error figure out which gives you a green smiley face. Btw, more tries = higher runes cost.
Slot 3 greens are random for everyone, you can try whatever runes you're willing to use (for me, da reelcheep amounts).
IF YOU WANT *MAXIMUM PROFIT*
, read the 'alternatives' next to your greens for each slot, listed in parentheses, and go by the highest profit number. If there are no 'alts' listed, then the primary rune is a budget rune that confers the most profit /and/ gives the most vix for that slot.
What is Vix? (Vis Wax)
.. Doing vix at the "Rune" Goldberg machine, a D&D in the eastern part of the Runecrafting guild, is about 350k net ezpz profit per daily reset Vix is ~6.2k each, and you can receive up to 100/day.
.. At least 2500 each of the 'budget' runes that 15 listed in post 5 either in your bank or in your inventory. (Air Earth Water Mind Chaos)
Getting To The Rune Golderberg Machine
.. Right click "Teleport" on a Wicked Hood, enter the RC guild portal up the stairs, and the machine is the two grey tanks to the east.
How To Get A *FREE* Wicked Hood -- You Are This Thread's 1000th Visitor!!
.. Talk to Tam McGrubor, slightly east of the Burthorpe ls and right outside the rune essence icon on the minimap, past the agility icon.
You can also buy runes from Apprentice Clara at the rune essence symbol, just north of Tam, as part of your rune run.
, and the others whose names unfortunately slip my mind () for their help in "Vis Wax FC" yesterday, when I was asking about how to make the most profit!! (Aka using alts and figuring out which ones to use)
Ahhh I forgot my combo for today. But from what I remember;

Earth Water Either Mind or Body
(Random for each person, forgot which one it was for me, one of those two)
Yay for using budget runes :^) I normally get at least 80 whenever I try to figure out my 3rd slot, to put things into perspective for those also aiming for most profit. Just go down the list of budget runes: Air, Water, Earth, Chaos, Mind, Body.
Of the 3 listed for slot 2, chaos was green for me. Chaos also a cheaper rune (61gp, and machine requires ~500 chaos as opposed to ~1000), and I'm not ironman.
Random for each person, Viv sees which on her list of budget runes gives most vix in slot 3: Air, Water, Earth, Mind, Body, Chaos, and chooses the one that gives most vix. (All can be purchased for 17gp or less at rune stores or GE, exception being Chaos)
I even tried switching mind and water out from slot 2, and putting it in slot 3, and using cheap runes at all times: Air, water, earth, mind, body, chaos, but 75 was the best I could get within the cheap runes.
, the first post explicitly lists the date for the combo listed, and mentions how if it's not the correct date, to either check the below posts or to go to the last page.
I personally always go to the last page, to see whether I've done vix for the day or not (my timezone differs from game time), and to see if others have any comments for the day--for example, whether people are getting a lot of vix for the day or not, and as such what I can somewhat expect for myself.
If the OP were to copy and paste the 2nd or 3rd post into her first, for example around 8 hours after reset, then that'd be unfair to the person who figured out the combos for that day, which is normally
(or at least, from the posts I've seen at the end of the thread).
Alternative runes are listed in order of value.(Based on G.E value).
Use only for Hardcore Ironman and Ironman accounts.It's not the best monetarily profitable alternative rune.For normal players.
Please don't post on this thread unless it has to do with today's combination.94 Vix:
Best alt = most net profit
Your green for slot 2 will be one of the three listed, I suggest going by alts if there are any listed (alts give most net profit)
Random for each person, I try between air, water, earth, mind, chaos, body, to see which one of them gives the most vix in the third slot. All are cheap according to ge price, except for body but I get those from my rune runs for 16gp each.
, I used to quote the full combination if my post was the first on a page, or if the full combo hadn't yet been posted on that page. Now I quote the full combination in *all* my posts because someone asked me to, and because sometimes the first page is updated but not the last, and as such it's more consistent if I quote today's combo in each of my posts.
I, like many others, also post my combinations to help keep track of whether I've done vix for the day yet, and also to share any additional insights. Sometimes I won't have the time to comment, other times I'm able to mention if there's only 1 rune as opposed to 2 that you have to test in slot 2, if you want the most profit.
In regards to ironman alternatives: I'm not sure what the order means, but the numbers are listed for people who aren't ironmen. Normally alts are listed in order of best profit for non-ironmen folk, but because in this case they *aren't,* regular people instead have to go off of numerical values and not order of listing.
If Cosmic isn't your green for slot 2, then you know either way earth will be your best al*
is right, it's easier to see which chaos/earth or earth/chaos combination gives the most vix, since it'll cost the same either way and because total vix is easier to see than doing the math.
, 92 is low for you?? I always get from around 75-95, haha. But then again I also only guess the below runes for my slot 3: Air, water, earth, mind, body, chaos, because they're cheap, and if it's bad enough I'll also try fire since I purchase those for 17 gp each on my rune runs
For slot 2 I checked astral first. If it's green, go with air for most profit if you purchase your air runes from the GE, body if you purchase your runes from rune runs (looking at the profit values based on ge and the vis wax numbers out of 30).
If astral isn't green, go with earth for your second slot for the most profit.
My fire runes are from my rune runs, so they were purchased at 16 gp each
aSpsaid: I reread my post and it seems a little negative, but this was not my intention at all. I appreciate that you took it constructively. I don't see many people acknowledging and apologizing for posts that came off negatively. Thank you
I found out about a great way to keep track of whether I've done vix or not--by doing my wicked hood dailies And it really did take me this long to learn about them lol.
I get 100 pure essence per day since I got an omnitalisman (replaced for free, because I used my previous omnitalisman to make an omni-tiara) and used it on my hood, and I collect 200 fire runes per day. If those dailies have been done, and you can tell by how many charges your hood has left, then that means I've done my vix since I'll do those after vix
I hope that others are aware of the dailies you can do with your wicked hood!! The beginner's guide I wrote on page 6, also linked in
's first post, describes how you can get a wicked hood *for free* (as oppose to purchasing one with Runespan points) if you don't have one
, I like how you've listed rune run locations. But how come you no longer update combinations?
's post is higher up and easier to see, but to be truly honest I preferred your layout since it was easier to read, and including the profits made is so much easier to compare opportunity costs and as decide whether one rune should go in slot 1 or slot 2.
But thank you both *so* much for your *very* reliable combination updates, and
I'd like to point out that if you go to Runespan each piece of the Wicked set you pick up increases the ability of the Wicked Hood. I've picked them all up, and I've got 175 pure essence and 5 sets of runes per day (which, like you, I use for fire runes)
--RedsnertzDid not know that--thanks so much,
, thanks for the updates Didn't notice them until now--had been going off the first page (Btw thank you
for editing your post each day!)
, I'm still curious why you no longer call combinations every day--real life, personal preference/no longer interested? I'm not complaining by the way, you've done so much and I don't take it for granted!!
TiamatáRidersaid: ombination for Wednesday the 29th;
- Astral(water 29,earth 20,body 27)
- Water - Fire(water 28,earth 25) - Mind(earth 28)The air, mind, and body runes I use for vix I get from rune stores, so I assume they're ~all about the same price~, meaning use the amount of vix garnered as my basis for figuring out how to get the least amount of tries.
== How to decrease your number of tries ==
Slot 1: Put anything other than water Slot 2: Put in water. - If it's green, then idk what to tell you to do but you can find and then use an alt that gives you 8 or fewer vix than water in slot 2. Using water in slot 1 gives you 9 more vix than using earth in slot 1, so compare that to using water and the next best thing in slot 2. - If it's orange or red, then you know for sure you can put water in slot one and earth in slot 2. (No need to guess fire or mind since alts that are listed on this thread are always more profitable according to GE prices)
