Death of Rare

I came up with this a long while back.. but just re-vamped it to include new things and ideas since the ge came out

Party is still Thursday May 1, 2008 17:00 [-06:00]

Death of Rare’s Birth of a Holiday Shop and Random Retirement Home

Ok, I think its time for a change, I am calling for the Death of Rare’s as we know it.

OMG WTF BBQ?!?!?!?!?!?!

Ok, Here is the idea, One day Jagex Freezes all trades of Party Hates Half Wines Easter Eggs Masks and the Masks (all Rare’s)

A update comes out, The new Holiday & Rare’s Shop And Random Retirement Home.

First lets Deal with the Randoms, They will have their own separate Rooms or areas, each one can be done over and over for few gp.

The reason we would have this is because Jagex has removed some Randoms in the past and has hinted at removing more.

Now onto the meat of the post.

The Rare’s Store will sell every rare there, though there is a catch, because we want player owned items to be traded rather than have people buy from a shop.

So to fix this the shop will sell the Rare’s at a variable increase over the GE max Cost.
This means that if “Rare Item” costs 10M max at GE, then if it’s being traded heavily (meaning a lot of sales are going on) it will cost 50% more at the store. Which puts the price @ 15M.

But if it’s being traded lightly (few buys/sells in the prior week) it will sell for 20% more than GE price.
So the same 10M item would cost 12M.

This amount will flux and move based on the 7 or 30 day cycle. (meaning one day it might be 35% the next 20% or 50%)

This would make it so people would trade items on the GE rather than buy from shop.

Now, I also believe Current Prices are way out of line for this game and for the shop.

At the Time of Writing the Blue Phat cost according the Grand Exchange Database.
Minimum price: 380M Market price: 400M Maximum price: 420M

So my idea to allow the average person a option to have a Rare is this.

We remove all CURRENT rare items from the game (hold on) because they were teleported to the shop for reconditioning.

This makes it so that a person does not lose any Rare’s from the addition of the Shop to when they stop by it.

All Current Rare’s would receive a update here for prices, for example the Blue Phat would now cost say 10M.

The player would go to the Rare’s Stock Manager.

Here there are a few options the Player would have. (we are still using the Blue Phat as a example.)

1. Cash out the Rare, the player would receive automatically the Medium price for their rare as it was before the update. (400M)

2. Take Stocks, Player would receive the MAX price of the Rare, so 420M. And under a special “pre-owners discount” they would be sold 42 New Blue Phats.

3. Keep one, sell the rest, The player would get Either the Max Price of the Rare, or Somewhat less. (3-4% less) The Extra ones would be put on the GE (like coinshare does today) at med price.
The player would receive immediately the money without a guarantee of actually selling the item

The Shop will have two purposes, selling new Rare’s, but also managing the economy.

If a Specific Rare’s Natural Price gets above a certain limit (which will be quite high to prevent the need to do this often), then it gets pulled for Reconditioning again, and the prices are reset and the user has the three options again. As I see it this is Similar to a Stock Split on the Stock Market.

This keeps Rare’s at a affordable price for people but still able to show off Wealth and Status.

There would be few other updates to this in regards to Rare’s.

This would be done to stop Junk Traders, which means that you can buy a Rare for one type of item.
You can pay Gold Pieces, or any one item (even multiple boxed sets of armor), but not two.

When you put up another item you would get a message,
"Guthix feels that this items balance requires only one item to be offered for it"

Meaning the GE is what sets the price, there are no Merchanters that can manipulate the prices to suit their needs. There is NO Junk Trading of the new items allowed.

You would lose nothing on the Current Price, and can get MAX price even. And then sit on them to see if they go up or down.

New Sig Part 4 Party Plans

Well its been a few days (2 weeks) since my last Runescape Post and I found a new posting in my favorite Newspaper the "Runescape Fishing Guild Times"

A celebration is being planned for the Savior of the Fishing Guild, Mementh.

Mementh is very close to achieving his level of 99 Fishing, which will make him a MASTER FISHER.

This has been a long story for the man known as Mementh, he has been on a fishing SPREE for close to 8 months, (though reports are sketchy this is about the first time he stated publically to get level 99 fishing).
He has been banned from the Fishing Guild, and took up residence in the town of Burgh De Rott.
Then when the Fishing Guild suffered a crisis he managed to save the day.

By current reports Mementh has 134,096 exp till 99, (That's 1220 sharks), and will get a Strength level right before he gets 99 Fishing.

Current plans are said to be for this THURSDAY April the 24th, in the evening (about 7-9pm CST).
Mementh's comment about this time is, "I want my RL friend Unklqb to be there, because that's the only day we are both off, and I want my friends from Tip.IT to be there, and the best time seems to be in the early evening on that date."

Speculation is if Mementh can't get the level on that day he will push it back till Thursday May the 1th same time frame.

The Locations that are currently being looked at for the level party is the Fishing Guild, but it does not seem possible that the guild could be shut down for one person because since Mementh has fixed it ,it has become more popular than it once was.

Other location ideas are Burgh De Rott which has offered to close down there Docks for Mementh, and the town of Rellekka home of the Fremennik People have offered to throw a rowdy party for the Master Fisher.

Suggestions are being taken, you can leave a message at the post office (reply to this post)

There will be a party at Mementh's place after the level pictures, Drinks and even a run though the newly created Dungeon under Mementh's Home along with a Prize or Two.

Now that we are done with the appetizer onto the main course...

I got a DRAGON DROP.. I was spending some time down in the Metal Dragons area and got a pair of DRAGON LEGS!!!!!!

Now the LVLS I have gotten!!!!

I got 88 HP While getting charms

I got all the way to 50 Summoning (45-50here not much to comment)






And the REASON I wanted to get 50 was because I got a Giant Crab Baby and wanted to talk to it from its youth to older age.

Here is the baby :)

And here are two of the three that that adult says :

Now for the last of the Signature, I am going to reveal it all

You can see the building interior and some outside is nearly ready, and the Docks still being done.

Outside and insides done, you can see the docks done, along with my "44k" of Raw sharks :.
You can also see my next lvl cape which will be 99 Cooking hanging inside.

I *DO NOT* know what was going though his mind when he suggested a rainbow.

I asked him to clean up and make the sign "Center for Excellence" more legible.

And you have the Final product after I paid $40 USD for it..

I have to say I wish it could have been done quicker.. From order to completion it took 2 and ½ months. :)

Just a Few Jokes from Bash.org

I found these two jokes from a runescape chat room (the bash links were posted there)

Enjoy

#1
so i had a checkup at the doctor a couple months ago
i waited in the goddamn lobby for like 2 hours
i was just starting to doze off when they called me back into one of the exam rooms
so i sit on this chair for like 30 more mins, and then fall asleep
i wake up and have no idea what time it is or how long i've been waiting
so 20 minutes later after I finished reading the Hispanic Business Weekly
I start diggin through the drawers in the exam table and his desk drawer
i find some hypos and don't touch them, some dressing gowns, and then i get to the drawer marked "OB/GYN"
i open it up, take a peeky-peek inside, and what do I see? Speculums and rectal dilators.
At this point I'm in his desk rolly-chair
with about 40 rubber gloves in my pockets for later use
so I grab a speculum in each hand
and start making them sing and talk like little ducks
i was rooting around for a sharpie and couldn't find one
so i put them down and did my glove-trick
i stretched a rubber glove over my head and blew it up
then i grabbbed the speculums and started spinning around in his chair
glove inflated on my head the size of two basketballs
speculum in each hand
spinning in his office chair
i hear footsteps and as i'm extending my legs to slow down, the door opens
the doctor is standing there with my chart in his hand
omg
i stopped spinning and just sat there, looking at him through the thin film of the glove
he was like "Corey.....?"
I said "Yep."
held up the speculums.
said, "I got bored."
and he was like "That's quite a trick with those gloves. Where did you learn that?"
I said "Many doctor's offices in many states."
He was like "You want to take some with you?" as I got up
I pulled the wad out of my pocket and said "Already did."
then I walked out and i heard him laughing like a goddamn maniac as soon as the door was closed
then the other day i go in again rofl and he just hands me a brand new unopened box of 100 gloves
i was gonna ask for some speculums just to fuck with him but I was afraid he'd give me some

#2
IronChef Foicite: well, there's a lot of reasons
IronChef Foicite: i mean, roses only last like a couple weeks
IronChef Foicite: and that's if you leave them in water
IronChef Foicite: and they really only exist to be pretty
IronChef Foicite: so that's like saying
IronChef Foicite: "my love for you is transitory and based solely on your appearance"
IronChef Foicite: but a potato!
IronChef Foicite: potatos last for fucking ever, man
IronChef Foicite: in fact, not only will they not rot, they actually grow shit even if you just leave them in the sack
IronChef Foicite: that part alone makes it a good symbol
IronChef Foicite: but there's more!
IronChef Foicite: there are so many ways to enjoy a potato! you can even make a battery with it!
IronChef Foicite: and that's like saying "i have many ways in which I show my love for you"
IronChef Foicite: and potatos may be ugly, but they're still awesome
IronChef Foicite: so that's like saying "it doesn't matter at all what you look like, I'll still love you"

New Sig Part 3!!!! (yes i am late on it)

Well I promised more of my sigs, but I just got lazy and did not post :(

Well I currently stand at 460,196exp till 99, which is 4184 Sharks. WOOT WOOT :)

Its been interesting :)

Since my last post I have been busy doing a few other skills, We also had April Fools day :)

So I will start things off from there.

I love this Years April Fools Event, it just is silly and crazy :) and I love the play on words Jokes that Jagex Comes up with.

Though I did not play all the time :)

I got some lvls :)

Thank you Unklqb aka Jerry from my work. I had to plank about 1000 og the oaks to get the lvl. Which having a friend helped :)

Though the trade restrictions are ticking me off because we had to stop every so often.


I had had the bones to get these lvls for a while, I had just been LAZY to do it... Well I went ahead and got the lvls.



WOOT 81 HERBLORE :) I had the herbs to get this lvl as well and finally applied myself to it, I can now make the best potion in the game the Super Strength Poison Potion when I use a Greenmans Ale

I have to say this is one of the most funny moments, I am in the fishing guild and the person asks me this...... HEHEHEHEHE


I went to Juna and got a few lvls over the last few weeks :)

I believe Jagex is really REALLY trying to make Summoning a good skill. And I think they have done it!

I was using a Bull Ant the other day in the Karmaja Dungeons and was able to stay much longer because of it :)

Tonight I ran out of cash when i went to buy today's stock of battle staffs. So I decided to go ahead and craft them all and I got this lvl :)

Well for the Main Event more of the new sig revealed,

You can see he has blocked everything out and gotten the major things outlined

Then he has the Mountains and background pixeled in.

And now the lake and the Crabclaw, though I had to complain, a Crabclaw is much much bigger in proportion to a normal hand. And where is my Pirate Hook?!?!?!?!?!

There we are with the claw right and pirate hook and beach :)

So long for next time.......

Oh, I decided to be like Steve Jobs, Here is one more thing :)

Its something that Came to mind one evening and i had to film it about 10 times to get it right, and I can't even use it as a signature because its just under 400k!!!!!!!
