I am used to grinds. In some ways i like them because they keep me busy

However, there comes a point where you do something with an overly excessive HP pool like a Brutish Dinosaur/Venomous Dinosaur 1,666 times and don't get the untradeable item. Not to mention the 2,220 blooms i've done.

I say the system is mornic and braindead because for untradeable items there is no way around it. It's a 1/1000 drop rate each time.. 10,000 obstables later it is still 1/1000 obstacles, nothing has improved and your effort to there has been a complete waste of time.

RNG is in every game but in the absence of wealth the bad luck mitigation should be there.

Nothing to my knowledge in slayer has drop rates exceeding that of 8,000 to 1 off task except Nihil's dropping Zaryte bow. which is dropped vastly easier by Nex... Which can be soloed.

Theres grind.. Then theres continously eclipsing the drop rate and still being left at square 1

Telos drop rates get vastly more common the higher his enrage increases and that is coupled by a win streak. It requires effort and skill to obtain the weapons/codex at a decent drop rate. These untradeable items have none of that in Ancharonia.

There are 52 obstacles which I have fully traveresed over 200 times , thats 10,400 minimum. So I should be sat here with 10 oils not 0... The point is.. If you've done a kill streak on telos, your drop rate is vastly IMPROVED as his enrage also increases with your streak. I have none of that trying to get these items. I may have completed minimum of 12,000 obstcles but I am still in the same boat as i was when I started... Up the creek without a paddle

Eventually when it comes to lore books. You are practically guaranteed the item by a certain KC.. again that doesn't exist here. Boss pets/skill pets are similar. the rate improves when you reach the threshold

The totems, upgrade items and others must have that.

Jagex does it for traded items.. As you pointed out Telos assuming im asking for easy loot, You're wrong because telos' TRADEABLE item drops have bad luck mitigation of sorts and I make no loot getting these oils/tooth at the correct times. rather than exceeding the drop rate 10x

88 i would expect to see more than the same 2 people on the agility course. It's daily scape. That's as good as dead content tbh. People voted for less daily scape not more of it

I think the excessive drop rate have taken incentive away. I think there is still methods of vastly better rates than exist in anachronia. Yes it may have the best jadinko spawn and butterflies but when that's the highlight of Anachronia, it proves the NEW content is as good as dead content

I am just incredibly demotivated. 223 laps and 4,000 dinosaurs/blooms does that when you should have gotten the undtradeables ages ago to know you could still be at square 1.

Every week im doing less and less. I've literally got no love for it now.

But like how terrible Solak was as content. I can't say Ramen's clear incapable development skills surprise me at all.

Some bad luck mitigation for totem pieces and t3 base upgrade parts would be nice, but I feel everything else is fine as is. Tbh not really upset about the low drop rate either. And before you say "you simply did not go through being so dry" I'll say that I'm currently 172 laps dry for essential oils, and somehow I'm still okay with that.

The new stuff on Anachronia is the kind of stuff I'd like to see elsewhere. For example, Al-kharid agility course by running over the building would be pretty dope. Or maybe just something covering larger area. I really like the Anachronia agility course, and I think that more agility courses should be like this.

Big game hunter is another thing I like about the island. Actually putting in an effort with some gameplay mechanics to do content I feel is a big step forwards. As opposed to "click inventory, click on fire, repeat", which has been replaced with afkscape these days.

Also, I like Solak, I think it is a really fun boss to do

I got Dojo Mojo on the agility course. Since then I have done about 10 laps all week. Most people are happy with skill pets but personally I have no interest in them. My RNG is not good enough to see Master of All. It's literally not gonna happen. 3 pets never dropped until after 200m and at least 2 were long after 120.

I accepted the pet because like champion scrolls it will keep dropping if you dont complete the content. Even if you have one.. Accepting removes the chance of it again. Bit like having 25 elite clues before you start Elite Dungeons


I was losing my head way before 172 laps. The worst I have seen is 212.. Im at 223 laps or 224.

The worst I have seen is approx 6k monsters for tooth. Dont know if a combination of both Dinos/blooms or what. By the time I had the 8 souls with cursed usabtis and totems I was 1170 blooms and 700 or so dinos.. Now I am 2200+ blooms and 1650+ dinos still without the tooth.

Going Insane. wikia makes me worse cus they've provided a drop rate of 2/2000 for spirit ruby and 3/2000 for spirit Emerald. They are common as muck and yet the tooth is 2/1000 with LOTD and it wont drop

Not saying it's broken but I do think Jagex have done it wrong. Added a 0 or something and made it 1 in 10,000.. they do mess up like that quite often and they only make an issue of it when they forget a 0.. Like making mutated fury codex 1/10 on release not 1/100

Ramen especially doesn't seem to know what he's doing. :D:D^_^^_^

I like BGH as an idea I really do. I think the jadinko add on wasn't necessary, the multiple spawns need to be better and easier in someway. I don't mind effort but 3 dinosaurs at that difficulty that 1 never leaves the middle is utterly stupid. You sit there knowing you have no opportunity when youve done the scorpions. Perhaps it depends on the dino.. They should all be the same but some of them are really harder than they need to be.

I think the lowest level one has the pumpkin and frogs miles away from the grass and the tree on some stupid hill and literally nearly every other one is significntly easier

I just feel as if there are several examples in runescape where you can make 10s of millions of gp.. not even on bosses specifically and not have to kill 3,000 of them to do it. to still not have a single drop. I find Anachronia dead content because how severely unbalanced and overly RNG that it is. What keeps even the few remaining there is the trim requirements not actually the quality of the content itself

By what logic would you do this for money? I have had several cinderbane gloves in 3k kills getting grove souls.. I had absolutely zip from dinosaurs in 3k kills and i am STILL missing the trim req item from them. Feel like i have more chance finding ghostly from bonecrshing the dino bones than getting tooth.. Already had dojo mojo from the course before oils.. Im almost positive its broken.

As I have said previously it's a complete waste of time and provides nothing to the game with the exception of the codex on agility.

They are not even the best equipment in the game. For them to be so exceptionally rare is completely disproportionate.

like the grove, anachronia is 90% a waste of space. with nothing it it. Why does Ramen think excessive space is anything to be wowed at and what makes him think excessively difficult to obtain drop rates is worthwhile or fun
