I am not sure if this is the correct thread or not, but since this is the first time I have ever seen this happen in game, I would think it might be because of a recent game update... Today while killing giant spiders, I went to pick up a staff of water drop from a spider and realized that I could not get it - the message said "You may only collect 5 of those a day."
WHAT???? On a monster drop we are being limited on how many of an item we can pick up? When did this happen, because I've been playing for over 12 years and have never seen that before. It's not like it's some huge $$$$ drop either, it is a freaking staff of water. What the heck is going on Jagex?????

My thoughts exactly - and it has me wondering what else is limited that I don't know about??? I would absolutely hate to work for HOURS on some drop and then get to #6 only to find out I can't pick something up because of a limit! Not cool at all.

Edit: A quick note, Giant Spiders don't drop water staves. Are you sure the information here is accurate?


Could we get a bit more details? I'd like to try this myself to see if I can confirm it.

Osrs or RS3?
Where exactly were you at giant spiders?
Members or F2P?
Legacy or EOC?

Thanks.

Here is a screen shot of it - don't know how to post it here, but the link to my drop box photo is

These are the spiders under the clock tower - they are level 2 - I was there trying to get spider eggs when I noticed it happening.

Correction - it is a staff of air, not water - but same basic thing so why the limit?

The limit of 5 Staves is correct. It's not a new update.

In the past, I have killed many spiders in the Lumbridge crypt just for their 100% drop of spider silk. I would make wands (no need for thread, I'm 99 Craft with the cape) and disassemble them for components needed to make Crystal Siphons (siphoning Lvl 12 crystal pickaxe mostly, my way of training Invention).

With the introduction of Player Owned Farms, the silk drop is 100% for all spiders. The limit of 5 staves from the crypt was copied over to other spiders as well.
Bite me.
