Just a few observations around RS

WELL 2 days on since Jagex ruined there game. Several weeks now since they made huge, drastic and unneeded changes - Lets see if there’s any noticeable changes shall we?

Now not to be rude or big headed but a lot of people on Rsbandb (the main people that view this blog anyway) aren’t high levels, they aren’t especially good at the game and in fact there’s around 7-8 people that are above me.

So I’m sure most of you can shrug this off, not care and ignore it. Cause you’re the low level, it doesn’t matter to you. The dedicated player the one that sticks with the game long term and becomes good at it, well, we get punished and we suffer.

So, the changes?

Herbs are now costing more than what potions sell for. Add on vials, secondary ingredients and herblore isn’t profitable, it certainly isn’t worth training anymore unless you just want the skill total, in which case you better hope you’re stinking rich.

Just an example, Super defense potions, they require a rare herb and used to sell for 1.5-2.5k and now? 550gp and dropping. The herb? 800 odd gp and rising.

Cost of dragonhide is on the up.

It’s now more profitable to mine pure essence than it is to actually craft nature runes. Pure essence is becoming harder to find.

Rune items are falling rapidly, rune plates are now 45.5k and smithing isn’t profitable.

Do da do do. Way to ruin the game jagex. It’s only going to get worse. I’m doing something else soon, i write to much about rs here but i suppose that’s to be expected, i refuse to write much about my real life, simply because i don’t believe anyone gives a damn and i feel the same way when i see someone else’s blog, i find myself asking why they think anyone cares. But hey! I shall get more variety in here. ;D
