Hotspots are areas that provide loot that is more 'kinder to players. Clan Warsone of the very first minigames that allow the use of osrs gold. They replaced massive wilderness fights between clans. New Bounty Hunter: After months of pvp jagex introduced lootkinder as well as a new method to play pk.
FFA arenas The update to FFA arenas is the worst thing in Runescape. It came in an update that ended clan wars forever. It was able to decrease the number of people there and make it a boring experience. I won't even get started about the dangerous arena. Request assistance was created after we couldn't trade items to make into various kinds; e.g. Smithing armour for low level, air/law/etc runes.
Capped Tradingis easy to comprehend It will probably be useless should the update be approved. Gravestones- They were designed to stop people from trading in their death and to allow them to regain items. DA tournamentswere originally designed to restore the staking system. However, they still fail horribly after all the changes. Revenantswere designed to replace the pkers. However, they are too weak and they are now poor. But, they're too powerful in f2p.
Jagex is able to delete the content. The old Bounty Hunter- A crater was created out of space, crushing all wild, old pking spots, such as the big bone and the small bone yard.
PvP worlds over time - they've decreased the number of pvp countries to just two. DA tournaments- The previous one was removed, but was replaced with a slicker crap, which also isn't as effective. The changes made it difficult to conduct certain activities. Player owned shops- Shop sections of forums, and businesses thrive money making for many people. The rune-based business model is an excellent method to earn money.
Duel Arena - A way for people to make big money or even lose a lot of money. Trading- Self explanitory. Pking- Self explaining. Merchanting- Once existed, pretty self explanitory. Still possible but not very practical. Hotspots for trading such as Varrock, Falador and all five of the worlds were always packed with traders from different regions.
I have just thought of a way to train more than one skill to 99 rs gold cheap at the simultaneously make a huge income from it, based on my experience. I have a goal of creating 100k+ yew-longbows by hand, and getting 99 Woodcutting, Fletching and Mage. What I'm looking for are "supplies" that are: Make 100k+ Pure Essence and then turn it into Nature runes.
