Why should quests be needlessly inconvenient? A lack of automatic trading is a needless inconvenience, and the only reason we don't have it is because some players cling to an archaic notion that inconvenient game mechanics should be ubiquitous in OSRS.


This so much lol.

Ash, does this mean we have have lootshare, surely now with a centralized trading system you can track rough values of items through listings or listings that lead to completed trades?

We're not able to track the prices for which the trade eventually completes, especially as players can trade for items other than coins.

That said, a lootshare system that worked off alch prices would still work reasonably well for sharing out loot amongst a team of boss-hunters.

So you can't put offers to buy in the post? So we have to buy at merchanter prices?

You have to buy at the price your seller will accept. Same as before.

I believe this is a huge step backwards. I hate the thought process of making things more "convenient". I would much rather world hop trying to find a buyer or seller than just looking up who all is selling. That's what made this game for me enjoyable back then. All I can see happening if a Grand Exchange was implemented was the rampant market inflation and crashes (pyramid schemes) that began almost immediately.

If you want to destroy the economy AGAIN, by all means please do. Just know that if the GE is added again that I'm canceling my membership again, just like I did back then.

Give us the GE, we want it now.

Compromise is fun.

Which brings us to another interesting question, when will we be seeing long awaited QoL/systematic changes such as Lootshare, xp drops, etc hit a poll? These are things that have been requested longer than most everything we've seen polled in months :|

Look at the difference in levels though.

Just Rave is 1706 total/110m xp while Illomphis is 83 total/50k xp
