What has been your favourite Old School update so far? I'm asking in a few places, really curious to find out.

Mine would have to be the wilderness rejuvenation. I've PKed more than ever recently because of the activity in the wild, I can always be sure I'll find someone hanging about.


Gwd or slayer. Can't pick between the two. if question 4 passed on the trade poll that would be my favourite update of all time.

I don't trade unless I really have to or I physically cannot get hold of said item without spending lots of time skilling :P I even barrows for runes to fill trident up with :P

I mean, I've made most of the super att/strs I've used for my slayer, Fished just about all the food and cooked it all.

Except Jagex then starts making bosses that just ignore prayer entirely.

Yea they started doing that with the um what was it, fight kiln? I like prayer how it is, I think it's more interesting if it does block all styles but instead you just get attacked by more than one style at once so that if you're good you can pray switch between everything coming at you.


Thermy and the kraken bosses both ignore prayer too :P

I heard they were offering to fix it too...

...In a poll.

They're leaving a bug fix up to a poll.

...

At the very least fix it so it can't be abused this badly. THIS is what will kill deep wild pvp, not lack of "incentives". :|

I'm not denying that the spec isn't working as it should, but in this particular revision of runescape it's just way too powerful and you can literally make people smite themselves because they can't even drink a dose of prayer between specs.

I'm going to assume that they nerfed it at some point between 2007 and 2010~ since I never remember the d spear being THIS op.

Essentially mist, You can be 0 hp and if they keep spearing your prayer will still go down regardless that you're "dead". There's also no legitimate way of preventing or getting out of it. If it happens you're dead regardless and lost everything on you.

Yeah okay "don't risk what you can't afford to lose" and stuff, but at that point it's essentially bug abuse in my eyes.

There was a yugioh game on ps2 back in the day which I loved, but it only sold like 1m units worldwide so basically nobody knew about it and I only found out that practically nobody knew about it yesterday.

Tldr; people missed out@

I feel like bad kebabs are quite rare though, can't remember the last time I got one


Pretty sure Kebabs can't actually hurt you in osrs, just reduce stats. Idk when they changed it because I'm pretty sure I died using one in 2005 or something.

Why does the Bandos chestplate protect over the tassets when the tassets have a higher alch value?


Iirc when they unpacked gwd the alch prices weren't set yet on bandos so they just slapped 150k on body/tassets, try moving the pieces around in inv to see if tassys ever protect over.

the reintroduction of dragon claws and curses would just mean that rushing would be one of the best money making methods possible


Claws are so much easier to tank than an ags or a g maul, both of which already exist :s

Pork2H Sword said:

also, this game is starting to lose its '07' status, i play this game for the fact that its '07' and im not going to lie i did like runescape when it was in its 2010-11 era, i just much prefer the way it is now, on the 07 server


We should probably remove every single update in the past year and a half~ then :|

Besides, this isnt "07scape" it's osrs. :|

Think they might be considering remove the hidden combat level requirements on tasks. Like dark beasts needing 110 combat.


This is exactly what they would be changing and the way they worded that sentence could have been better. :s inb4 doesn't pass because people think abyssal demon killing req goes to like 60 or something.

Mages can freeze and stop meleers.

They're also handy for catching barrage piles (where two or more people are in the same 9x9 sq) since it can cause a lot of damage quickly.

Also magic is pretty accurate, even on armadyl.

I think pathetic is 10 people stopping an update nearly 20,000 people want from happening.

Is just me though.
It's not 10 people though.. it's thousands

Sure you can look at it the 10 people angle but that's just looking for ways to make it sound worse than it actually is..


And it's like triple the amount of people who want it. You can be like, blegh blegh not 75% huehuehue all you like, but it's outright pathetic that these shields with 74.9% yes votes might fail because of a handful of voters.

Yeah, I just heard some streamer is doing giveaways for people who vote yes lol. Pathetic.


I'd say smart rather than pathetic.


Tell me how is adding copypasted content to the game good. I would rather see something unique and more interesting. Elysian is still overpowered as well.


Ely isnt overpowered at all.

You have a serious problem if the reason you dont want cool stuff like corp/sigils is because it's "copypasted" You're letting good content miss for no good reason.

And I'm saying it's not op, talking from experience.

It is good content, or it wouldn't be getting 3/4 yes votes right now.

And Idk if you noticed, but we ARE going our own way over here. Just because corp would be added doesn't mean anything has changed about that statement, it means people want corp, and jagex are delivering.

I think what Derpage was trying to imply is, there will be no turmoil/ss/ovls/gano for the foreseeable future, so corp will actually be HARD. He just derped up with the example.


I corped before ANY of those were even out and it was still very easy to kill, almost no challenge at all.

My point still stands.


If you're going to lie, at least do it convincingly.

Have you been slaying in nieves recently? Used to never really get randoms after leaving there, almost as if your "give this player a random" counter wasn't ticking up.

And yes I know nieves is random free, before someone inevitably takes what I say the wrong way.

That be the reason I didn't bother.

What's the point in grinding for so long to get stuff when one server dc later you have to do it all over again :x I realise rs is a grind based game, but still :( sucks to lose so much work in such a short amount of time lol.

How come such big changes are allowed to happen in oldschool but the convenience of summoning and dungeoneering have no place in oldschool because the impact would be too big. Talk about failed logic !


Conv..what!? Dungeoneering and Summoning were huge game changers for RS. Bossing literally was not worth it without at least the tortoise but it became a joke with the Yak\Titan set up. Dungeoneering up till the release of Kalphite King was a requirement for Bossing as well.


I bossed with plenty of people that had low levels in both of those stats O_o They were hardly "Requirements", just made it easier for the person with said levels.

I mean, yeah, for nex you sort of needed both, but that was endgame gear for an endgame boss :/

Oh yeah I'd also like to learn how to dh pk. A friend of mine who was a former leader of a big pking clan went some rounds with me and gave me lots of tips but I'm sure there is still so many little things I should know. If I get really good I could even pk skill specs for some juicy 3a :p


tip 1: Be me
tip 2: axe at 70 hp and hit 75s
