I sincerely hope not. About the only thing I'm going to get out of it is some agility xp bc the only thing worth getting is the silverhawk feathers (i already have the boots and everything else, including tons of chromatic and metallic dragon tokens)


No ones forcing you to get anything from it, so if you dont want anything just dont buy anything.
Exactly!

Luckily, like Draco said, they're gone once June ends. > )
"Luckily"
Why luckily? I question your choice of words sometimes. Talking as if this promo is a bad thing

Because it is; for everyone's best in the long term, I don't approve of shady business practices. Certain players might be happy about this in the short term, but if left to do as they please, Jagex will have us taking turns getting deceived for our money. And that's not a good thing. > )
^And please explain how it's "shady business practices".
Exactly. It isn't "shady" to openly sell promotions. Just like it is not "decieving people for money" when they are willing to make the purchases.

Nobody is forcing you to purchase anything, so if nothing interests you, dont buy anything. If they were forcing you, that would be a better example of "shady business." We don't even have to pay for membership anymore so long as you have time to spend earning money for bonds.

Selling something and making money off of it from willing customers is not "shady business."
+1.

Idk how this can constitute as "shady business practices", people aren't really going to buy more spins so they can get more oddoments. Best argument I can think of is it might encourage people to buy 1-3 more spins if they're a few oddoments away from the item they wanna buy right before promo ends. Even that is pretty weak argument.

Jagex brought back the fallen nihil outfit with the oddments store, which was supposed to be discontinued. So it's not so much about making people buy more of something now, than it is about deceiving the original customers. If Jagex was an honest company, it'd stick to a choice it has made: either sell X product (or in this case "asset" I should say, because Runescape as a whole is essentially the product) indefinitely if you want to keep making money out of it, or discontinue it after Y period of time selling it, if you want to make a lot more money in the short term, at the cost of long term profits. Bringing back a discontinued asset is taking advantage of the original customers whose purchase decision was influenced by the fact that the asset was going to be discontinued after the initial sales period. > )
Except the fact the fallen nihil was never sold as a discontinued never to return item. So thats your problem
