when coinshare will be out :o?

We've not bundled CoinShare with the GE.
We'd be happy to poll it. I sense there are a few issues with how CoinShare worked before that we might need to address before going there though. Not everyone liked the way it injected so much cash into the economy.

Also, it's not a small job. You'd have to consider whether you need CoinShare NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW or whether you'd be okay with us coming back to it after other jobs. Like a resizeable mode.

When you buy an item, why doesn't it take you to the 6 boxes interface? Jagex, can you please stop the update and change this? Thanks.

Yeah, sorry, you'll have to do the extra click for now. We can change it in future.

I imagine you'll cope :)

What exactly are the buy limits right now?

Different for different items. We've had to set them conservative for now, since price manipulation is a bit more of a threat in OSRS than it was in 2007 due to the lack of a trade limit. But I expect us to raise the limits week by week as the system stabilises.

is there a post somewhere or a website that identifies this info??? please help.

Since it's different for different items, and it's about to change over and over again in future, we haven't written out a list. Sorry.

I saw the picture Ash uploaded to twitter about moving a goblin spawn that spawned in a tree and I am pretty sure that there is another goblin spawning in a tree just north west from the one that was moved.

I didn't say where I moved it to.

@mod Ash
So you're saying we cannot merc*?

Depends what you mean by "merc".
Through your knowledge of prices/supply/demand you can find many ways to turn a profit.

However, if you were hoping to shout "AGS dropped to 100k, sell yours now" and pick up cheap godswords that way, we'd rather you didn't. :)

S-some of these items appear to be off in price? There's no way godswords are 1.25m, or wards only 450k ...

Wee said:
Ely at 2M, nats at 180 gp.....I don't want to be rude but.....seriously? NO ONE was selling elys for 2m and nats for 180 gp before this update, you could've atleast tried a bit harder.


Actually, those are not the prices we set. Those are the "config" cost that's used for shops and alching. I think it's failed to transmit the player prices to the GE server.

Does it matter if you are in different word? if you try to sell/buy item i mean,
and does the prices update every 12hours?

Shouldn't make any difference which world/worlds you're on.
I thought the price recalc interval was about 24 hours.

Any chance you could let us convert noted potions into sets? Making these 225 super potion sets is going to be pretty torturous, lol.

Yeah, I expect we can get the set conversion thing to handle banknotes.

Uhm, I think you forgot something to put into the g/e mod ash.
When I am on the g/e main screen and I right mouseclick the item it says view offer, but in pre-eoc there was also an option to abort the offer when u rightclick one of the 6 boxes of the g/e mainscreen where the items are in.
Thanks

I don't remember the original GE having that. But sure, we can add it.

- left click on bankers/exchange clerk for bank/exchange option
- right click on offers with an option to abort them
- i noticed you can't do anything with items in your inventory but examine, so why not make a left click option on any item in your inventory (obviously items that can be traded) to make a sale on that item

1. Go on, click on the booth. It's got it already :)
2. We can do that in future, sure.
3. Nice thought. I think we can do that.

aren't the bankers / exchange NPC's suppose to be bank / Exchange as the first option and Talk-To as the 2nd option?

That would follow all the banker NPC in other locations.

No it wouldn't.

I know, i just went doubled checked lol, it's really handy like that without having to right click each NPC.

We haven't copied every aspect of RS3 into OSRS. Rather like the grimy herb models, we can copy more RS3 features if people specifically want them.

Red Wine said:
Hi i have a couple of queries one being are you ever going to add the item "Red Wine" and when?

Number 2: Can you give us all knowledge on buy limits? if you already please link me :)

Number 3: Can i buy something on the exchange and sell it right away or vice versa or is there a 4 hour window?

Thanks again for adding such an amazing update to the game!

1. I've not been making any plans around red wine at all.
2. Items have one, but it will be changing in future as the system stabilises.
3. You can buy and sell items immediately, sure, up to the limits.

What's the point of old school if you actually making it look more like rs3?
With this G.E update.

As you'll recall, this update was put to a poll where players were invited to decide whether they wanted it added to the Old School game. 76% is a pretty big majority. But I'm sorry you didn't like the poll outcome.

We could refuse point blank to do any update that's ever been done in RS3, even if most the customers keep asking us to do it, but that'd be kinda odd.

Is it possible to get that message saying IF there is something waiting (coins if sold someting, items if bought something). That would be neat to see :)

It does notify you if an offer's completed or made more progress while you were offline, but it's currently not bringing up extra messages to remind you to collect stuff that was already there. We could add one if you like, although I'd be concerned about it getting spammy given how often people like to hop worlds.

Could you make it so that active buying and/or selling offers can be seen for an item of choice? Like the lists of offers you can see right now with the trading booths and **bez. This will make the GE much more transparent and it will give people an idea what's going on with the prices of items. Also it will make price manupilation much more visible for players. I think this update is quite necessary.

Yes, we can.

I chose not to include one of those for launch, since it's not really part of any GE anyone's ever seen before, but I'd be extremely happy to have one polled for a future update.

Shaaack said:
Just a question, when are ls and cs comming?

Undecided. Mod Reach is working on achievement diaries, then hopefully moving to Zeah. I'm doing some GE feedback work, then hopefully moving onto resizeable mode (with a break for Easter). But if people wanted us to change these plans and do lootshare or coinshare instead, that's possible too.

Subject to them passing a poll, of course.

Mikeasaurus said:
Just in case it hasn't been spotted, or been reported yet, if you accept an order which has complete, but the bar is still yellow, it seems to freeze the offer on the GE until you exit the GE screen completely. Nothing major, but may cause problems down the line

Ah, thanks. We'd been trying to work out how that came about.

Portgas 4ce said:
I hope they just make it quick rather and let the market slowly adjust rather to try to control with limits.
I guss we just have to wait.

The question is what the market is adjusting to. We'd expected that the launch would be filled with people offering silly prices for popular items, either for fun or in the hope that they could make the guide price go somewhere silly. So we put tight limits for launch. That shouldn't be necessary for long at all.

When farming herbs, the herbs are Grimy. Before this update the herbs were already clean when picked. Is this a mistake or did you intend for this to happen?
Either way extra herb Xp for id'ing them.

It's intended, so you can get the extra XP for IDing them.
