So I got into RS again after 5 years and I'm playing darkscape?
How does the combat triangle fully work now?
For example if I'm slaying Kalaphites they have a melle attack. So should I wear something like Batwing armour since it has melle bonuses or stick to the casual rune? Does armour make more of a difference?
How does it work?
Melee functions the way it always did, you get close and do a lot of damage. The difference is you can't just wear hides to negate magic, and range/magic got buffed overall to match it along with reduced costs on spells, ammo, etc.
>increase cap to 5k comms for final day
>starts you off on 2500/5000
Because the general has nothing to do with the game, just people being retards, degenerates, and shitposters who never discuss the game unless it's to set up a shitpost like
>tfw I get raped at this boss
>git gud shitter
>I'll rape your boypussy
you are not allowed to have absolutely any fun doing bosses until you have overloads, turmoil, and a pack yak
seriously, no team whatsoever will accept you to any boss at all without those things
now, you can solo plenty of bosses without those things, but grouping? not a chance
Assuming you don't have the skilling levels to get things like ports gear or funds to jump to level 90 gear, you should dungeoneer for a chaotic staff or save up for a virtus wand and book. With 70 gear you're handicapping yourself and not really helping your team, just getting carried. At least upgrade to a staff of light (level 75) and do something like god wars or slayer.
I'm in a clan that lets anyone help providing they have at least t 70 equipment. Its going to take way too long to get high herblore and summoning so I want advice for my current level.
You should be more specific when asking the initial question then, since t70 made it sound like you had a level 70 weapon too.
Vorago, ROTS, and Raids are probably out of your reach if you want to be useful and not leech. Same case for Araxxor because duo is typically considered harder than solo.
KK and Nex are possible if you have chaotics but you would effectively need to hybrid/tribrid to be useful.
I would suggest Corp but he essentially must be fought with a spear rather than magic.
So that mostly leaves DKS or GWD. Anything else that comes to mind would be solo/too easy
Why, just in time for the holiday!
That ring aint even the upgraded version.
>he never missed a hit
On the melee form ones stacking accuracy boosts (aura/nihil/slay helm/reaper necklace) you can get pretty good accuracy with magic, possibly 100%, but the range ones will wreck you and the aoes magic has aren't nearly as good as melee.
While airuts are probably worth doing by the time you have T80 gear you're not going to get the 500+ kph that make them the goat task without scythe and drygores.
I felt bad for like a minute desu but I got over it.
>mfw jadinkos are 350k/hr with no bxp/yaktwee at only 93 hunter
did they make catching them easier? Like 3 months ago they barely broke 300k at 99 with every bonus except dxp
So how the fuck do offhands work with a sunspear at vyrewatch? Should I use a drygore offhand or the blisterwood sickle offhand for max damage?
>unlock The Loop
>first missions are 50 terracotta voyages
is this a joke? the yields are even less than the bamboo rewards from the first region and the voyages still take more than half a day.
How do I save up 11mil on f2p account for a bond
I'm doing chump change shit like drinking wine and selling empty jugs.
I tried the zamorak wine telekinesis shit but it's always contested by bots.
I have 2mil at the moment so I can make decent investments
Only train Summoning during dxp and make use of portable deposit fc's.
It's so fucking fast I think I leveled 70 - 99 in under 2-3 hours by selling my noted secondaries to the shop owner, buying them back, infusing, dropping them into the portable deposit box and repeating the whole process.
summoning is the bxpw skill
just do slayer, making sure to do familiarization whenever you get a waterfiends task, and cash out your charm stacks when a bxpw happens
if you don't have enough charms? put bxp into it
need something a bit sooner than the next bxpw? just use charms off of it then, but stop training once you get the milestone
also get charming imp asap and toss it on your toolbelt as well once you've gotten mighty slayer helm/quicker killing blows/bonecrusher on toolbelt. have it throw away golds/greens.
i enjoyed when people used portable deposit boxes during the last bxpw because it meant I could actually use my t3 war tort/yak later, as I was able to quickly clean my inventory while still retaining all pouches made
Are there any shops in Amlodd? I used that during BXPW for the vos 20% boost of xp on all of my charms, and I was running to and from the Ithell bank; if I could have just sold/bought instead, and still gotten the vos bonus, I would have done that.
If you upgrade your buildings to yield more, I believe Sarula's special voyages give exactly 420 terracotta (probably an ebic meme on purpose) and normal ones (25600 in either Morale, Combat or Seafarring or 15000 in 2 of those) 275 Terracotta.
There's also some with 125 and 175, so I guess that's something. I went back to that region when I was done with ports and only needed it to farm tradable goods for making sellable armors, as the final regions payoff for those was very little more but as much higher stats reqs.
Gonna be camping Rex for the pet, or at least do a few hours a day.
Is this a decent enough inv to last 2ish hours killing just Rex?
I'm pretty sure it's for erp, yeah.
I don't really know him though, he's just in the same IRC. The only thing I do know is that he's from Reddit and is pretty autistic.
I'll just decline, thanks.
In your chatbox, top right there should be a little diamond, thats the thing that tells people whether you're online or not,turning pm off doesn't really do anything anymore unless you play around with the interface. You can also toggle it in the friends section of the lobby
>ecause thats the game where you will get away with botting for long periods of time and can actually justify botting because no spins
last I checked maxed accounts getting banned for botting was not a regular thing on OSRS
on RS3, well...
They patched it when they re-buffed the gloves at some point after EoC; however, in the same update, they made each glove cost 25 kills instead of 5. (Dreadnip costs weren't changed since they multiplied the amount of dreadnips per credit by 5 as well.)
So I'm maxed combat, working on max cape. I haven't done bossing outside of the solo ones. Gwd gens / Dag lads/ royal black dragons/corp because I could self teach myself those. whenever I wanted to try something else (rots/ vorago/kalphite king etc) there was a req of knowing what you're doing first. Any of you know of a halfway decent place to find people willing to do these that doesn't require1k hours of previous experience?
Im in college and my wifi is shit so I cant play better games on my laptop and I'm bored out of my mind
Should I pick runescape back up. Im out of games and its been 4 years since I last played? Is it as good as I remember?
Maybe invention will give it some stuff.
Do people really require experience for kk? That shit is easy. Do you have any friends who go bossing? That's usually the easiest way to get in to them.
Glacors or zammy boss, pretty sure you can qbd with mage too.
you literally do make money at qbd in that gear tho
i mean I use a dom marker 4 instead of supers but still, I get like ~2 min kills which is enough to make QBD the best money maker for me
>in that gear
there is no reason to use arma over royal dhide
>m-muh .6% dps
it does LITERALLY NOTHING
>i-it increases muh dps
prove it :^)
take into account that your damage is random so extensive testing will be required. until then IT DOES NOTHING
/rsg/ got 3rd in a virtual divegrass tourney against human-managed teams
>/rsg/ 6-1'd neps for third place
fucking nice la
ccb + dragonbane bolts + best you got out of offhand dld, attuned crystal chakram, crystal chakram, and blisterwood darts
offhand thrown weapons synergize with dragonbane for reasons
I was literally going to post last night and check if /rsg/ was up for it again but figured I'd wait and see if you popped up to broach the subject instead.
/rsg/ has competed in the last 3 VGL tournaments and considering you took 3rd last June I'd say MP did something right with the autopilot export.
Do you want me to upload another auto-pilot or manage instead?
Altho managing is exp waste and I don't know if I have the time for it So basically the same problem as last time, which means everyone's welcome to step up and help
Again, either your autopilot was fucking amazing or the teams you went against had shit managing. Ultimately it's up to you how much managing you want to do since I doubt anyone else will step up to the plate willingly.
I just lurk /rsg/ and post once in a blue moon, I mainly browse /4ccg/ hence my more in-depth interest in /rsg/'s participation.
>ON LOWEST DETAIL
who thought this was acceptable
I'd plan on being an autopilot again then unless some mysterious old man shows up out of the blue. You' round got until the 13th to have management finalized I think, and to around the 25th to have team aesthetics. Which were also phenomenal, by the way.
Accuracy is derived from the mainland weapon, so when using a thrown weapon with its own damage levels as an offhand you actually have better damage than a comparable crossbow with bolts.
Regardless, assuming he has a high agility then his question about using OH Chakram over OH ccb, he should still use the Chakram, even if not using bane bolts.
At least I think so. Could be wrong.
Slayer tab from about 25m xp :^)
not included: good amount of blood neck shards, and 50k coal i sold for 27m yesterday
BECAUSE JAGEX NEVER TESTS ANYTHING BEFORE RELEASING IT.
THEY CHECK IF THE MAIN 'CONTENT' IS WORKING AND THAT IS IT.
It's so annoying. Raptor tasks are so broken. Assigns tasks people don't have the level for, can't use Kuradel dungeon for dark beasts so if you don't have MEP1 done, you can't even do them. Can't use slayer tower, you also only get 2-4 slayer points from normal slayer tasks randomly if you have a Raptor task.
Seriously, every single QA tester at Jagex needs to be fucking fired and they need to hire testers who understand what their job entails.
Every single update over the last few months have had so many ridiculous bugs that would not be there if they tested ANYTHING other than the main content for more than 15 minutes.
They did it with Ashdale as well. Jagex has been trying to stop people from playing on minimum detail when their computer can handle better. It probably makes them mad as fuck that people prefer minimum detail over the shitty high detail they wasted so much time and resources on.
Fuck off, shilling kike.
That's not even the whole story.
Bane has +30% accuracy and +25% damage.
The problem is that bane is T60, and crossbow damage is capped at the lower of weapon or ammo damage, so even with +25% damage bane ammo does less damage than ascension bolts (assuming you're using dual ascensions).
This is why using a thrown offhand is good.
Using bane bolts with a mainhand ascension gives you T60 (+25%) damage for the mainhand. Thrown offhands don't take into account the damage of your bolts, and the damage boost of bane applies to ability damage overall, so offhand death lotus darts give their normal damage plus the bane damage boost and have T85 (+25%) damage.
Overall this is higher damage than T90 bolts with T90 weapons, plus you get T90 accuracy (since offhand weapon doesn't affect accuracy) and the 30% accuracy boost from bane.
tl;dr bane bolts with ascension mainhand and T80-85 thrown offhand is higher damage than dual ascensions with bane bolts, and higher damage and accuracy than dual ascensions with ascension bolts.
Turns out the fc is full of buttfrustrated retards who can't figure out how to kill Wyverns.
>isn't the whole point of pvm to make money?
nah, the real reason why ashdale, new fally, and new armors look like shit on low detail isn't some nefarious plot by jagex to force you to play on high, it's far less sinister than that. You see, jagex fired or let go all of their good designers that actually took their time making these things with actual polys and built in textures, instead we are now stuck with fucking interns that don't know jack shit about 3d design and think just adding a cool texture to an object is good enough and call it a day. They don't even bother adding more details to the object, they let the shitty textures do all the work, and while this might look ok on high settings, it looks like shit on low since textures are off. Stop spreading misinfo when you don't know what you are talking about you fucking /pol/babby.
no, NXT will just let them display the real resolution of the textures instead of the low res currently being displayed, it will still look just as flat as the current engine.
Yeah thats what I said
The point of something doesn't depend on what Jagex thinks or wants. The game is its own entity, and what Jagex wills has nothing to do with reality most of the time.
>Tfw dominion tower/kalphite hive/wizard tower revamp was the height of runescape graphics.
>All that amazing ambient music.
>All those unique, original designs that were strongly enhanced old poly graphics but with sparse textures and focus on shape.
>Solid objects looked solid.
>That fucking Pernix gear.
>That tzhaar city ambient.
FUCK, Priff is a fucking eyesore and the music makes me want to hang myself
the ~2011 era was so fucking good
all of the shit you're talking about (well ok maybe wizard tower was a bit later), polypore dungeon, kiln, DG was at its peak, etc etc...
i mean yeah bots but who gives a fuck, just made training things cheaper
Fucking polypore, man. Felt so mysterious.
Dominion tower was intense, it still is, hasn't aged a bit, even the menus were made custom, felt like its own game.
And the Al Kharid redesign, the detail in that city is mindblowing when you stop to look. And one piercing note, etc.
Then it just stopped and they started shitting out turbo instanced quests and wow-rip offs and trying to drive people to seek cosmetic shit to overide the ugly default.
Like what the FUCK were they thinking with the Nox gear?
>what the FUCK were they thinking with the Nox gear
Wanted to make the edgy particool kids happy (aka most of the pvmers), fuck the nox weapon design. I don't particularly like Seimics either, but they're not as bad as nox. Drygores are okay, but their default color is disgusting, 3a dyed they look way better, but spending 2b on making them look decent when there are better overrides available is just stupid. Ascensions are probably my favorite t90 weapons, they look great, even without dyes.
Seismics are alright, they're supposed to be really magical so I can understand why they leak magic effects but Nox is just overdoing it. Also something made from a spider should not be better than a sword literally designed to kill gods.
I know what you're saying.
It's like the teams dont communicate with each other. They had piles and piles of fucking lore or ideas to work with and they just put in this random spider no one had heard of and made its limbs cast magic as powerful as shit dropped by the origin of the entire planets power or whatever convoluted shit seismics are related to.
Atleast seismics have that ancient artifact thing going on.
Also how dragon shit comes from the mah homeplanet and yet its the goebie teletubbies who come up with impervous, terrifying gear.
Just because you can't sit down and talk to it doesn't mean there is no reason for it being strong. If Vorago didn't have chats with you, the ultimate magic weapon would be the tiny pecker of the jumpy rock man.
Also for anybody else who gives a shit, this is the current roster for /rsg/
Anyone got some tips on Wyverns?
I'm seeing even maxed pvm guys get shredded in minutes, also the drops are really bad.
I seem to have to eat like one or two rocks a kill. Is antipoison required? I just stand near the fire and mage but sometimes it protects me sometimes it doesn't.
Wyrmfire potion is a must, super-antipoisons help a lot, shield abilities make it a bit easier and you need to balance between hot and col.
They're not dragons, they don't even breath fire
1000 hours in ms paint, This is pretty much how this update felt.
Sorry if it is shit quality, but yeah pretty much, wyverns and the raptor's challenge,
Angry Wyverns aren't that bad, they're harder than they should be and have shit loot but with an Attune Crystal Wand and a reg C ward I can manage about 10 kills per trip with wyrmfire and no statboosting pots.
Also keep warm and you won't be stunlocked.
only need 15 gold for the quiver; 99 slayer (and probably a whole bunch of other shit like t90 weaponry, ovls, etc) is a pretty silly requirement for a diary. the biggest they've done is the requirement to unfurl a banner, which is just getting any 99 at all.
you do need 20 plat for comp tho
>be walking near taverley

How are you guys enjoying the Evasion of Falador?
In all fairness, they aren't exactly fun to kill because of their damage. However, even though they're high level slayer creatures, I don't feel like their drops are balanced; for me slaying is all about somewhat steady drops per task, whereas these Wyverns are simply either a 40m-2h Crossbow (for now at least, they'll obviously drop in price) or nothing at all, at the cost of quite some food and not even that great xp gain.
With Rune Dragons you could at least argue that the rune bars and Rune Dragon Bones had some value (and their extra drops of course), but these simply don't seem worth it with their current drop table.
>tfw didn't get 90 before workshop dxp ended
dxp weekend WHEN
I don't have 89 mining. I don't have access to Prif.
is there any reason whatsoever to have a fury or should I just sell it? I mean, if I'm hybridding, I'm probably using mage as a style and would like to use Dragon Rider for that and the extra prayer, and for specific styles I have the DG necklaces. There's also Demonhorn for niche situations.
With the abyss ranging being nerfed today, I decided to try out Dagannonths with cannon + grey chins.
This is what I got in an hour:
I'm only 93 ranged, and as you can see I'm in pretty terrible gear. 500k is easily attainable I think.
Supplies I used were:
594 grey chinchompas
12 doses of holy overload
So if anyone is curious, this is a super good ranging spot even in shit gear especially since you get a ton of charms and it's virtually afk.
Also no one goes here so come here instead of waterfiends.
Turmoil has a 10% damage bonus
Zealots with leech strength has an 18% damage bonus
On bosses obviously the accuracy of turmoil wins hands down, but when slaying zealots is much better.
Also we need to prove that at least some part of this general gives two shits about VGL in order to participate.
wat do moneypox senpai
Basically the team representing /vg/ does a minor tournament right after every tournament they play to determine what their roster is, and last June a team fielded by someone from this general took 3rd place in the tournament. /rsg/ has been in the last 3 iterations of this tournament and considering MP found something that worked last time I'd assume that he could do so again.
But that's all dependent on determining whether or not this general actually cares about it.
so why didn't they make Chronicles feature actually good characters like Zanik, Sir Tiffy Cashien, the Wise Old Man, Thok, Kuradal, Gypsy Aris, Zenevivia, Sir Amik Varze, King Roald, Oziach, and My Arm instead of the Shitter Heroes
It was expensive to do it during the artisan's bonus and I already finished 93-99 in 2 days the other day doing addy plates and until I'm maxed I don't wanna waste time training a skill I'm 99 in
Thieving was an exception tho cause it was hella fast and my fav cape
So when did you find out you have crippling autism?
For me it was earlier today
Do you guys do PvP/PvM in the /rsg/ clan? I plan on leaving the clan I am currently because they have biweekly clan meetings and citadel capping requirements. I just want a clan I can do fun stuff with.
I wish I could have a few alt accounts but I can't bring myself to do all of the questing for them. I still have to do quests on my current account, but it's not quite crippling yet. Getting there though.
Well obviously he wants to get 4 things done at once? Those are fairly afk things so paying all of your attention to one is kinda wasted. though 4 is pushing it for me.
I've started killing spidermeme with melee but it ends up being the same speed or slower than ranged
Also shit gets totally fucked at 240%+ enrage when it's still easy with ranged
Wat do? I thought melee was supposed to be better.
Hasn't been faster for me.
On path 3 starting from 0% enrage I got 8 kills with melee and had 1 minute left on my aura.
Then I did an hour with ranged and had 4 minutes left on aura after 8 kills. Also doing path 3, and starting from 160% enrage.
>tfw activate dorf aura instead of greenfingers for herb run
So put it towards mining, the slowest skill. When you get 200m mining put it towards smithing. Then construction, then herblore.
Only after 200m in all those is it worth putting into farming.
>still putting it into mining
>when mining is 270k/hr
you're a fucking retard, you're literally saving 1hr a day by putting it into mining but if you put it into farming you're saving literally 4 tree runs which is a shit ton of time
holy shit how do you manage to dress yourself
>disjointed interfaces on the right
>having to scroll through prayers
>having to switch between ranged and mage abilities
>that wasted space in intentory
>literally having music up
>having to scroll between inv and equip
>the puke on my keyboard
It was better once but the UI slowly changes itself with window resizes and when you change graphics settings, I really like my UI though and having music up is great for comfy skilling when I cba to do something else.
Anyway, why is it a problem to toggle between mage and range abilities?
i'm not stopping her from using that UI but it's not a good one to advocate for
ok i'm happy it works for you but it's not good for others
i change ranged and mage abilities when i switch combat styles at DKs, dg, sometimes kiln
>i change ranged and mage abilities when i switch combat styles at DKs, dg, sometimes kiln
Not that guy and I don't do dks or kiln but for dg I just switch action bars, it's faster and I don't have to use any abilities from book.
But he wasn't the one who posted the UI.
I just have my hotbars set up and bound to switch when I press a key so its not really an issue for me. I didn't realise my UI would cause such an upset desu.
having the scroll bar up is ugly
i switch action bars too, but i don't have room for all of the thresholds/ultis i may use. not essential but i prefer having the bar up.
it's really not good
My current UI, I like it.
Although the empty space next to the action bar makes my autism flare
Time to trigger some autism
Forgot to add a picture. I have armadyl battlestaff and subjugation robes.
ive literally never attempted spider before (too scared)
isn't melee the most dangerous way to try and kill it?
also is duoing with someone who is really gud also a viable strategy?
I'm honestly trying to go for the reaper title more than anything
Melee without a scythe is a bit more dangerous/harder compared to range, but better than the pure bullshit of magic. Once you know how the fight works it's fine though.Duo depends on the rotation and the skill of the 2 players, since pretty much everything besides araxxor's HP gets doubled so a mistake will be more likely to get you killed.
Okay, IMPORTANT STRAWPOLL

My real life situation leaves me with lots of spare time, if I wanted to I could get double of what im getting now.
I dont like having this much time and its wearing me down emotionally
So with invention, why did they suddenly decided to change the xp targets/level system. Like, isn't the only thing never changed the fact that you'd be halfway to 99 when you hit 92 and the grind semi-ends at 13m xp? They basically don't want to make a second dungeonering level system with unlocks after 99 and also don't want it to be a regular skill. I really wonder which retard came up with this idea and why everyone ended up agreeing with it.
I'm assuming it's because January is also when GameBlast is, which they do a dxp weekend during it.
Normally they don't let skills get bxp/lamps used on them for a couple weeks or so after they come out, so with the dxp in January it's either they let it be dxp or just disable dxp on Invention.
That probably has a little bit to do with it.
120 was actually quite pleasant, think I'll go further.
Only because I can't decide what to do next
