The Rock Climbing Boots disaster

Yeah, disaster.

Alright, so Jagex, for some reason changed the "Climbing Boots" item into "Rock Climbing Boots", and gave it some stats. They also made them high alch for 45k.

Just to clarify, they turned an item worth 12 coins, into an item worth 45k. That anyone could have any number of. Do you see the problem here?

These "Rock Climbing Boots" are a new item, with some stats, unlike the old "Climbing Boots", that did not. But wait, these "Climbing Boots" still exist. Exactly the same.

So Jagex pretty much created a new item, then converted all of the cheap, existing items into it. This led to a price increase of 4,317%. That's ridiculous. Say I bought 1 million gp worth of climbing boots before the update. This update would make me be worth 4.3 billion gp.

Also, some Moderators leaked news of this update to their friends, leading to them buying all of the climbing boots, and making obscene amounts of money.

Finally, this reaaallly isn't going to help with Runescape's inflation issue. Really isn't.

Ranged Equip

Just thought I'd post a picture of my ranged slayer equipment, before I go on my iron dragon task.

95 Ranged

This took a scarily long time...

91 slayer

Got 91 slayer finally, and also got my first ever 500+ unpotted hit.

Not going to move onto mining / smithing yet, going to carry on slaying, but I have that option available if I want it.

98 Defence

Had dark beasts for the first time today, they're really hard... Cancelled them forever.

Also got 98 def, and got my highest hit yet whilst using my new saradomin godsword.

Dragon Med Helm

Got my first every dragon med drop. I know it's hardly worth anything, but I'm proud!

I've started using Kuradel for tasks, as she gives longer ones, and got this med from a dark beast.

Rune Full Helm (g), Zammy Coif, Zammy Page

2 nice clue rewards, the helm (g) was worth 900k, the other clue 600k.

Ancient Effigy

Got my first ancient effigy today from a Suqah, gave me some nice woodcutting + cooking xp.

Couldn't do the 3rd part, so traded for a 5kxp lamp.


When I finally make it to 91 slayer, I'm going to take a break to properly train mining.

I'll probably use granite up to 77, when I can use the lovely Living Rock Caverns; easy, fast, profitable, afk mining xp. Mine concentrated coal from 77-80, and if I'm still enjoying it there, then I will mine gold up to 85 or so, and smith this with gold gauntlets for good smithing xp (especially with the 20 stealing creation hammers I have saved up!)

I still need to think what I'm going to do about having a familiar boost my mining, and I will need to do tests to see if the bonus ores are worth the cost of the familiar. Although, the extra xp will probably be worth it alone.

I need 83 for a lava titan, which provides a mining boost of 10, so I may have to get summoning up first, to speed up my mining xp.

97 Defence + 131 Combat

Jumping up combat levels quite quickly now... Only 2 more levels until my next 99!

Also, getting enchanted excalibur required a few quests I didn't feel like doing, so sticking with guthans + bunyip's for healing for now. I very rarely even have to use the guthans.

SGS vs Excal

I had been saving up for a Saradomin Godsword, currently around 69m, but I was speaking to a few friends about it and they suggested an alternative. The enchanted excalibur.

This weapon has a special attack that boosts defence by 15%, and also heals 200 lifepoints (approx 20%). Below I will list the pro's and con's of using a Excalibur (e) instead of a Saradomin godsword, and hopefully this will help someone else to choose.

  • Costs almost 70m less.
  • Provides a defence bonus so less damage will be taken anyway.
  • Also only takes up one invent space.
  • Is one handed, whereas sgs is two handed, allowing me to carry on using shield.
  • Requires Seer's village achievement diary to be 100% completed.
  • Cannot reasonable used as a weapon, as it has the same stats as a rune longsword, whereas the sgs is a very strong weapon on it's own.
  • The healing effect takes around 10 seconds to finish, so can't be used in an emergency.

So I'm going to get the excalibur after this steel dragon task, and I hope it is as good as it sounds.

Also, the dungeoneering gem bag is very useful.

Guthix Helm

A nice 600k.

Monday, June 14, 2010

Guthix Platebody

Got 40 dungeoneering, so taking a break to do slayer. Got a guthix plate (905k) from clue scroll.

Friday, June 11, 2010

Finally got 30 dungeoneering, as well as unlocking my 500th track.

80 Summoning

Fast xp, but quite costly.

70 Construction

Worked out how to use a demon butler to get insane xp speeds.

90 Slayer

Got 90 slayer on my 400th task, a nice coincidence. Also got 94 ranged. Now I'm going to round my stats back to _0's, then on with slayer.

Abbysal Whip

Got my first whip drop since my return, nice to know they are 3.9m now, instead of 1.5m as before.

Update: Got 2 whips drops in one task. Nice 8m.

Also, got another slayer challenge, it's a really quick 20kxp, I approve.

Slayer Special Challenge

Got my first slayer special challenge today. These are different from usual tasks, for Duradel I have to slayer a certain amount of each monster in the slayer tower in one go, without leaving the tower.

Also, a nice 20kxp reward from it.

Zammy plateskirt + vambraces

Got both in the same clue, worth 840k.

Evil Tree

Pcfl member Never Me took me to an evil tree today, which seems to be a recent addition to woodcutting.

People swarm around a large, violent tree, chopping away roots to get at it. They can also receive evil tree kindling, which when used on the tree gives 1k firemaking xp.

Once the tree is dead, everyone gets given a set of rewards. They get items (I received around 1kgp, 1 willow tree seed, and 12 yew logs), bonus banking (for the next 20 mins, if I have a full inventory, any logs will be automatically sent to my bank), and an increased chance of receiving birds nests from trees.

Seems fairly rewarding, and a good way to break up a dull skill.

99 Hitpoints / Constitution / HEART.

Got 99hp, I know it's technically called constitution but... that sounds ridiculous.

For once, didn't get it by accident!

Dragon Boots

Finally got a d boot drop on my task, towards the end. I think the droprates have changed, since I've only got 1 in 2 tasks, and I used to get 2-3 per task.

Rune Platebody (g) + Dragon Plateskirt

From now on, only going to post especially good clues. Also, got a d skirt from iron dragon task.
