Gold Farming in OSRS Gold (2019 Edition)

OSRS Gold Farming

There are lots of ways to get filthy rich in OSRS, but some, if not most methods, are already outdated. Usual tips such as mowing down trees and selling the logs just won’t cut it anymore. To help newbies and oldies alike rake in the gold, we’ll be highlighting low level and high-level money-making methods so that there’s a method for everyone to employ. With that, here are five new refreshing ways of farming Old School Runescape Gold (OSRS gold). That can not only get you rich, but will also let you improve in other aspects of the game!

  1. Killing Chickens (For everyone)

If there’s one that hasn’t changed in OSRS, it’s the popular activity of killing chickens to farm gold. While we’ve stated that most ways to farm OSRS gold are outdated, this is an exception and is one of the most long-standing methods still relevant today. The people that can benefit from this the most are low-leveled players since killing chickens is a great way to train in combat all the while earning some dough. If you’re new around here, don’t worry, it’s legitimately impossible to get killed by a chicken! Whether you’re already clad in armor or you’re out of stock on food and have no means of defending yourself except with your fists, this suggestion is open for everyone. Chickens drop raw chicken meat, feathers, and bones. It doesn’t look like much, but all of these items are still worth money. For example, feathers are popular among players for fly-fishing and can stack in one inventory slot, making them easy to carry. As for bones and raw chicken meat, bones are used to level up a player’s Prayer stat, while raw chicken can be used to cook food. Nothing goes to waste here! This option can yield up to 50k per hour.

  1. Barging in the Stronghold (For low to mid-level players)

It’s pretty weird to see a company actually help players learn about account security by going inside a dungeon, but that’s exactly what the Stronghold of Security is for. This option is for players that are mid to high-level, but you can also run through this dungeon at level 3. Be wary though, as there might be some high-level monsters at the end of the stronghold that can one-shot you. To avoid this scenario, we recommend you to level up first and have 49-51 Combat. To go along with that, bring as much food as possible. There’s little doubt that you’ll be severely damaged by the monsters in the stronghold, since their combat skills increase as the levels progress, making them somewhat difficult for you to beat. Completing the Stronghold of Security will bank you 10k gold per run, along with some boots and a few emotes thrown in.

  1. Hunt and Trap Black Chinchompas (For high-level players)

To start this off, you’ll need 73 Hunter and 6 or more box traps. Note that this method isn’t something that anyone can do, so we listed this one for high-level players only. To start the hunt, you’ll have to go to level 32 tier Wilderness areas. Upon arrival, check where these Black Chincompasrespawn in the area and set your traps there. Simply wait for the Chinchompas to get shackled and harvest the loot that they drop. Big risks mean big rewards, so this hunt-and-trap method can net you up to 750k OSRS gold an hour.

Conclusion

Whether you’re a long-time OSRS player or a newbie looking to get by in the game, we hope that our 2019 money-making guide for Old School Runescape Gold(OSRS gold) has helped you. Are there any other effective ways to farm gold in OSRS? Let us know by leaving a comment down below!

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE GUIDE: HOW TO KILL THE MOLE

OSRS MOBILE GIANT MOLE

Do not fear the Giant Mole in OSRS Mobile. It may seem like an intimidating creature at level 230, but with the proper equipment and the knowledge you’ll be getting from this guide, we dare say anyone can slay it and promptly lay it to rest! Killing the Giant Mole can earn you your fair share of OSRS Gold, and you can even gain more depending on your speed and luck. With our OSRS Giant Mole Guide, we’ll show you some tips when hunting this mid-level boss and how to prepare for it.

What is the Giant Mole (Talpidae Wysonian)?

The Giant Mole is a mid-level mole boss found in the caves under Falador Mole Lair Park. The Giant Mole is possibly one of the easiest bosses in Old School RuneScape to date. In fact, other than chasing the Mole around the caves as it burrows, there aren’t any more advanced mechanics than that. The main reason players kill the Giant Mole (most notably Ironmen) is to gather Mole Skins and Mole Claws, which can be traded to Wyson the gardener in Falador Shield Park for Birdsnests. Bird nests are always in demand because they’re the secondary Herblore ingredient to make Saradomin brews. As bird nests are quite difficult to get by through another method of killing, the Giant or Talpidae Wysonian is the fastest and most popular way in RuneScape, making it a great mid-level boss to farm up-on.

How to Find the Giant Mole(Talpidae Wysonian)

This Talpidae Wysonian monster can be found by using a spade on the mole holes in Falador Park  Garden. The mole lair is a rather dark place, so you will need to bring a light source with you. A bullseye lantern should be your first choice when it comes to that, as you save inventory space with, but a candle or a tinderbox will work just as well. The Talpidae Wysonian tends to respawn in the middle of the large center area of the dungeon.

Gearing Up

While there are no requirements to kill the Monster, we highly recommend adventurers like yourself to complete the Falador Hard Diary beforehand. To take on the mole, we also have stats that we recommend you should have. The Giant Mole has high defense against Magic and Ranged gear, so it’s best to go on Melee gear.

Requirements:

70 Attack speed & Strength/Range

45 Defense (Or 70+ with good armor without Prayer)

43 Prayer

50 Agility (Useful for exploring the caves)

When it comes to facing the Giant Mole, patience is the most important thing. It can sometimes take up to 10 minutes to find it after it has burrowed into the ground. Thankfully, the fight against the Talpidae wysonian is an easy one–just use the Dharok method. With the Dharok method, you’ll need to wear Dharok the Wretched’s equipment with low Hitpoints to utilize its set effect of higher damage at lower hitpoints. Use your Dwarven Rock Cake to bring your HP down to 1 in order to maximize your damage out. But keep in mind that when camping low health hitpoints the Giant can easily kill you, so the prayer “Protect from Melee” should be enabled.

Have the lightest inventory possible, just less than 1kg. Since you need to do a lot of running, a light inventory with some energy potions and an agility level of 50+ is recommended. It may also be beneficial for you to bring teleport runes if you’re at a much lower level, but if you’re a high-level player, you should be alright by simply operating your jewelry right from your combat stats menu to change items or drop tables to whatever you prefer.

Rewards

The average loot per kill of the Giant Mole is 19,599 OSRS Gold. Most of the loot (rare drops), namely 80.9% of it comes from the mole claws and mole skins. Giving these mole parts to Wysonin exchange for bird nests makes it profitable; however, due to the constantly changing prices on the Grand Exchange, the price will dwindle. Luckily, since bird nests are continuously in high demand for people who are into Herblore, it’s an item that’ll never go super cheap.

OSRS – WHAT IS THE BLAST FURNACE?

OSRS Blast Furnace Guide

While playing Old School Runescape, you will come across various methods which you can use to farm RuneScape Gold. One such method is the use of the OSRS Blast Furnace, which is an effective way for players to rack up OSRS Gold and the currency that they will require on their journey. Thankfully, the Blast Furnace is a low-level requirement way of doing so, but you’ll need to know a number of things before using it. This includes knowing exactly what the furnace is, how it works, and ultimately what you will need in order to use it.

What is the Blast Furnace?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Blast Furnace Old School Runescape, fear not as you are in the right place. Available as a members-only minigame, the Blast Furnace can be found in Keldagrim, and is used for players to smelt bars with. You can find 15 Blast Furnace worlds within OSRS, which are operated by dwarves known as Dumpty, Numpty, Pumpy, Stumpy, and Thumpy.

Essentially, all a player has to do is allow the dwarves to operate the furnace for them, so the player can use this time to place the ores back and forth onto the conveyor belt within. However, in order to use the furnace effectively, there are a number of requirements that you should keep in mind.

Requirements for the Blast Furnace

For you to be able to use the Blast Furnace, there are a few requirements that you will have to meet. First thing you will want to do is complete a particular quest, known as the Giant Dwarf quest. This will give you access to dwarven city of Keldagrim, also referred to as the home of the Blast Furnace. The second thing you’ll need is a Coal Bag, which will come in particularly handy on your quest. It is reusable, non-degradable and holds up to 27 pieces of coal, and can be accessed as a reward item from Prosepector Percy’s Nugget Shop for 100 Nuggets.

Since you’ll be doing a lot of running around in this area, it would be prudent to make sure that you take Stamina Potions with you, and considering wearing Graceful Clothing which will reduce your weight. There are a couple of other items that could speed up the process of using the furnace when you get round to it, so you should definitely keep in mind the use of the Ice Gloves and the Goldsmith Gauntlets to not just speed things up, but mainly to cover all bases depending on what kind of smithing you want to do.

When you arrive at the Blast Furnace, be sure to have level 60 Smithing, or you will need to pay a 2500-coin fee to smelt bars for 10 minutes. The Ice Gloves previously mentioned will also speed up the cooldown process, and you can reduce your initial entrance fee with the Ring of Charos. You can also choose to pay the foreman to help you along if you are below level 60 Smithing, which is worth considering. The foreman will also let you use the Blast Furnace Anvil in OSRS if you have reached level 60 Smithing, so that you can smith your bars.

How Does it Work?

To get started on the furnace, simply place your coal/ore onto the conveyor belt as previously mentioned. From there, you can use the Ice Gloves to cool them down or use a bucket of water on your smelted bars. You can then collect your bars from the dispenser and repeat the process as many times as you require with the resources that you have. The task will be completed by the assigned dwarf to that world, which costs 72,000 coins per hour.

In terms of what you can place on the belt, you are restricted to 56 primary ore and 28 gold ore. Be sure not to disconnect your game during this process as you will lose the ores that you have placed on the conveyor belt. If you want to gain some additional experience for the gold that you have smelted, then be sure to pick up the Goldsmith Gauntlets that we mentioned earlier on.

Using tools like the OSRS Account Value Calculator will give you an idea of what everything is worth, and with that in mind, there is a great money-making method at your service when it comes to the Blast Furnace. For example, Mithral Bars can fetch a profit of 708,585, making 3,600 per hour gaining XP of 108,000 per hour. If you want to go one step further, Adamantite Bars and Runite Bars will bring in profits of 1,259,385 and 1,429,335 respectively.

Conclusively, the Blast Furnace is a great way of leveling up your skills and gaining OSRS Gold in the process. So, if getting your Runescape Gold up and improving a particular set of skills along the way is something that appeals to you, then be sure to make your way to Keldagrim and get started!

Path of Exile: Tips When Creating Your Build

Path of Exile Builds

Creating your very own build is sort of like completing a puzzle piece that never ends. Thanks to the intricacy of Path of Exile’s legendary skill tree, the progress is perpetual—even when you reach the endgame. If you don’t take the time to learn and research about what build you plan on getting, it can dampen your experience as Path of Exile is an unforgiving game compared to other ARPGs. To help you out, we’ve rounded up some rips that will help you get the ideal build you want for your character. No PoE orbs or PoE currency is needed here, just sheer effort and the will to learn!

The Building Blocks

Knowing where to start your build is not only a great step to take, but it ultimately leads to having a domino effect on your progress. Whether you want to build around a unique item that you’ve acquired during raids or a certain skill that you’re thinking of diving deeper into, there are millions of possibilities that you can explore when making a build. This can be daunting, especially if you’re still a newbie, but rest assured all of this will be worth it in the end! Don’t be fixated on certain builds that require too much time and effort, but not enough to be so simple that there’s no thrill in using your character anymore. The key is to keep it simple yet effective while having a bit of thrill.

State Your Purpose

Decide the purpose of your character. Not only does this broaden (or limit) your possibilities, it also lets you know where you stand at the very least. Do you want your character to be a boss farmer, a skill-based character, or maybe a gold farmer? Once you’ve finally figured out what the purpose of your character is, it’s time to think about its survivability. This is where you’ll be picking out certain nodes in the skill tree that will make the character more powerful or have skills that are unique to their race.

Grow the Tree

The skill tree is full of passive skills that can either make or break your character. This large network is chock-filled with stats and attributes that can be used to further strengthen the character. While all of the players use the same skill tree, you’ll all be starting in different places on it. The tree is almost web-like, with over 1,325 skills. You can just imagine the thousands of possibilities you can execute within this skill tree alone. It’s understandable if you’re intimidated by this, especially if it’s your first time seeing such a complicated way of distributing skill points. Luckily for you, Path of Exile has a page that can let your toy around the passive skill tree. Here, you can experiment with whatever builds you desire. Once you’re done with the building process, you can simply copy it for your character. Check out the passive skill tree maker here!

GG: Gems and Gear

There are so many skill gems in Path of Exile. These shiny rocks have a huge impact on the skills that your character will have. Selecting skill gems can be tedious, as you constantly have to check the details of every skill gem you’re interested in on wikis and blogs. But trust us, the research you’ll be doing will highly benefit you!

Gearing up can alter certain mechanics and make the game more enjoyable for you. Having unique items that can complement your build will not only make your character stronger, but it can potentially unlock bonuses in terms of skills and attributes. Granted that some gear is worth a lot of PoE currency and PoE orbs, but you’re bound to run into cheaper alternatives.

There you have it! Those are our tips for creating the perfect build for your character. So did you learn a thing or two about what it takes to construct these thingamajigs? Do you have any other suggestions with regards to creating a build? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment down below!

PATH OF EXILE ITEMS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER FARMING

In Path of Exile, the epic ARPG title from Grinding Gear Games, farming items plays an intricately huge part of your experience. You will soon become familiar with the ways of combat, currency in the form of PoE orbs and PoE currency, and of course, farming when starting out. With that in mind, you may want to know just what kind of items are worth grinding it out for, so here are a few that you will definitely want to consider during your time with this sensational free-to-play title.

PoE Orbs and PoE Items

Tabula Rasa                                                                               

Unique items and odd rare items are things you will inevitably come across and they may save you from having to buy PoE currency. The first item we’ll tackle is the Tabula Rasa robe, which can be farmed via the humility divination card found in Blood Aquaduct. This is a great place for power leveling up for Hardcore players also, which will help you farm the required cards. What’s more, it is also useful to gain XP here as there are a lot of enemies. Fortunately, that also raises the chances of dropping the card.

This item is a simple robe that features six sockets, and would normally set you back five Chaos Orb or a single Divine Orb. Interestingly, the name derives the Latin term of ‘Blank Slate’ which is essentially what this robe is. On its own, it is capable of very little, having no base or defense values. However, depending on how you choose to level it, the Tabula Rasa has plenty of potential for enhancement and can come in handy for new players who want to experiment with gems and find a suitable build.

PoE Orbs

Elegant Ringmail

Another one of the notable PoE items is the Elegant Ringmail. Before jumping into this item, it is worth mentioning that it will require a pretty hefty amount of rings, 60 to be exact, for you to obtain it.

The Ringmail has several variables and six sockets for you to use and has plenty of effective base stats that will prove to be quite useful regardless of the build that you are going for. Perhaps the most important of the said stats is the Maximum Resistances, which can roll up to 80%, with better rolls obtainable via the use of a Divine Orb. On the subject of the Divine Orb, if you managed to farm the previous item we discussed, the Tabula Rasa, you can sell it for a Divine Orb, which can then be used to increase your percentages with the Elegant Ringmail.

Oni Goroshi

If it is weaponry is more your thing, then look no further than the Oni Goroshi. This one-handed sword can only be farmed in the Twilight Strand area of the game and will require you to reset the zone if you want to get your hands on it. To do so, you will need to use around four characters and find Hillock the Blacksmith and kill him. From there, you will come up against Uber Hillock, who will prove to be more of a challenge than the regular Hillock—which is to be expected. What’s great about the Oni Goroshi is that it has the capability of buffing attack and movement speed when an enemy is ignited, and can also pack a significant amount of fire damage. It also proves to be suitable for any build, since there is no stat requirement for you to use it.

These are just a few of the items that you can farm in Path of Exile without having to worry about spending too many of your PoE Orb or PoE currency. They can be farmed completely for free with minimal time and effort. You will soon find yourself with some unique and useful items to do with as you please, regardless of your build.

Top 10 Powerful Abilities from Vanilla WoW Classic

Vanilla WOW Classic Abilities

Unlike now, Vanilla WoW isn’t exactly known for being completely balanced. With how good the devs have become when it comes to walking the tightrope, it’s worth looking back on the infamously overpowered abilities that defined the Vanilla WoW metagame. Because if you’re complaining how unfair certain skills are, then imagine how mad you’d with these.

Thankfully, you won’t find them in today’s WoW Classic private server.

WoW Classic

Source: gfycat.com

Divine Shield

In Vanilla WoW, this ability, which grants the Paladin invulnerability from all sources, lasts for 12 seconds. Aside from being used to tank, some Paladins can also use it to escape by casting it and then using a hearthstone, which is only worth a few WoW Classic gold, afterward. And because this was a time before skills like Mass Dispel and Shattering Throw, there was really nothing you could do if the Paladin was intent on getting away.

Frost Shock

In World of Warcraft, there’s the diminishing returns mechanic, which means the duration of an offensive spell’s particular effect gets halved the next time it is cast on the same target and then reduced to 25% before the target becomes fully immune.

The game didn’t have this at the time of Frost Shock’s heyday, a spell whose cooldown is shorter than its slow effect duration of 8 seconds. As if that’s not bad enough, Frost Shock also deals a good deal of damage.

Fear

More of a status ailment mechanic that could be exploited than skill, the issue with Fear in WoW Vanilla is that the damage threshold needed to break it isn’t a certain amount of cumulative damage, but a certain amount of damage in one sitting. Players then used damage-over-time spells so as not to break Fear.

On top of that, while there are lots of classes with access to this status ailment, the Warlocks that inflict it have no cooldown. What a horror!

Cheap Shot + Kidney Shot

This Rogue combo gave the class the ability to stun a player for a total of 10 seconds – a timeframe long enough to kill an enemy player. While it consumes a considerable amount of combo points, rogues can always drink thistle tea to pull this combo off.

Blind + Preparation

In some ways, it’s similar to the previous Rogue combo, but this is deadlier. This is done this way:

  • Cheap Shot (Vanish) twice
  • Blind
  • Wait for the duration and leave combat and re-stealth
  • Sap – this removes Diminishing Returns
  • Wait for the duration, restealth, use Preparation, which resets skill cooldowns
  • Rinse and repeat

With this combo, rogues can take out all sorts of enemies, especially players(gamer to gamer).

Curse of Elements or Shadow

These skills were considered overpowered because in-game mechanics allowed gamers or players to suffer negative resistances instead of them just dropping to zero. This means more damage dealt with by a particular elemental source. Thankfully, however, this has been changed.

Mortal Strike

A skill that scaled with weapon damage but had a much shorter cooldown that ignored weapon attack speed, Mortal Strike became a lethal skill when paired with the Arcanite Reaper, a massively powerful yet extremely slow axe. All of this, however, was fixed after weapon attack normalization, which means skills now have to follow weapon attack speeds.

Windfury

This is a shaman weapon enchantment that gives the target a 20% chance to attack two extra attacks on hit. Those chances didn’t have an internal cooldown, so the effect being triggered can also cause the skill to trigger the effect again and again within itself. On top of that, this was before weapon attack normalization was implemented!

To further kill the skill off, it was given a 3-second internal cooldown. However, somebody discovered that a different rank of Windfury stacks with another Windfury of a different rank, and the two buffs of the same spell didn’t have the same internal cooldown. This, however, has since been fixed in Burning Crusade.

Will of the Forsaken

In the beta of World of Warcraft classic, this made Undead players immune to charm, sleep, and fear. But come the actual release, Undead players were re-classed to humanoid. To make sure Undead players still had watered-down access to that legacy trait, Blizzard Entertainment gave them the racial trait called Will of the Forsaken, which cured and made them immune charm, sleep, and fear for 20 seconds. Obviously, it was too long and gave them an unfair advantage, so it was eventually cut down to 5.

Pyroblast

This is a spell that can literally be a one-shot spell if you use Presence of Mind, which removes the cooldown of the next spell, Arcane Power, which boosts spell damage at the cost of more mana, and trinkets, which increases magic damage even further.

World of Warcraft is still not perfect today, but it sure is much fairer now than it used to be. Heck, even in WoW Classic, they wouldn’t bring this back. Now, aren’t you glad that’s the case? Unless you want to try these overpowered exploits yourself.

 

Path of Exile: A Brief Introduction to the Shadow Class

Path of Exile Shadow Class

If you are new to the popular ARPG Path of Exile, then several features may seem a bit alien to you at first. There are a few things that you need to wrap your head around, such as utilizing PoE Orbs, jewellers orb, and buy PoE currency. Perhaps more importantly, you just need to figure out how certain classes work and whether or not they cater to your personal gaming style. This article will discuss one of the classes that will be available to you during your time in the game.

The Shadow Class is one of the hybrid classes in Path of Exile. Choosing this class will see the player opting for quick-use melee weapons such as daggers, claws and other close-range short-but-deadly weaponry. The way of the Shadow also sees a tactical approach with the use of traps, as players attempt to always stay one step ahead.

The class itself isn’t without its drawbacks, however. It is considered by many players to be one of the hardest classes to play since they are far more fragile to attack than other classes. Nevertheless, the evasive techniques used by the Shadow allow players to counter this disadvantage, courtesy of the traps used and energy shield at their disposal. The Shadow also adopts the use of masks, coats, spiked shields, garbs, raiments, and mitts for their armor.

Ascendancy Classes

Ascendancy classes are sub-classes that can be chosen by the player and be made use of after completing the Labyrinth for the first time. From here, players will be able to access the Ascendancy skill tree which caters to their specific class. Ascendancy skill points can be gained for completing the Labyrinths, which can be unlocked as you progress through the Acts in the game. A total of eight points can be spent on new skills, following the unlocking of the Eternal Labyrinth, but you don’t need to worry about that until you reach post-game.

There are three Ascendancy classes for the Shadow, which are made up of the Assassin, Saboteur, and Trickster.

Assassin

By choosing the Assassin, players will experience a methodology that focuses on critical striking. There are a number of skills available to the Assassin which will enhance how effective these strikes are, with power leveling charges being progressed and bonus damage being attached to them. These strikes are subject to certain conditions, but can have devastating effects on their opponents. This ascendancy gives players the feel of a true Shadow, allowing them to further their critical damage bonuses with the use of poison, as well as increasing their speed with particular buffs.

Saboteur

The Saboteur approach differs slightly but is all the same just as deadly a choice as the Assassin if used correctly. As mentioned in the introduction, the Shadow class makes use of traps and mines, and that is where this ascendancy comes directly into play, managing to use the specialist skill to gain a significant advantage. On the subject of advantages, the Saboteur also possesses the ability of regeneration and is immune to many ailments that the opponent may choose to inflict upon them.

The Saboteur specializes in traps and mines to greatly enhance their utility. The class also possesses other utility bonuses like blind synergy, area of effect bonuses, regeneration, and ailment immunities.

Trickster

The Trickster sub-class offers a potent mixture of speed and evasion that resembles the true mark of the Shadow. There is also a heavy focus on defence, using the likes of Shade Form and Escape Artist to add further dimensions to their defenses. While this does encourage the player to take the odd hit, the rewards are certainly beneficial for doing so. Reduced mana consumption is also a highlight from such instances as Weave the Arcane, and can also gain charge generation for Power and Frenzy.

Now that you have an idea of the benefits of choosing the Shadow class, you should be ready to delve deeper into the depths of Path of Exile and explore different builds to make you an extremely formidable force. Don’t forget to learn more about buying PoE Orbs, chaos orbs, exalted orbs standard league, an orb of fusing and experiment with your character’s build to make the most of your PoE currency!

PATH OF EXILE LOOT FILTERS GUIDE

There are so many loot filters you can choose from, but there are only a few that can be considered great—especially for beginners. Using loot filters is essential when playing Path of Exile, especially if you’re planning to play all the way to the endgame content. The premise of item sorters is to be flexible to each player according to their needs, so if you’re looking for certain filters that are designed for racing or for a certain class, then we’ve got you covered. We’ll be showing you the best PoE items drop sorters to use in various situations like for farming PoE Currency and PoE Orbs plus a general overview of what they are.

Path of Exile Loot Filters Guide

What Are Loot Filters?

Loot filters allow you to customize which item labels you want to be displayed in your inventory. Whether it’s the color of the text, drop sound effects, size of the text, or certain items for your class, you can choose which of the resources you want to be displayed. This automatically hides any potentially bad items that you’ll get—or ones that aren’t necessary for your class. By completely hiding certain item drops that you don’t need, this sorts out your inventory and makes it look more organized. However, do note that this will remove your ability to pick up hidden items unless you hold down the item drop hotkey for a good second.

Best Path of Exile Loot Filters to Use

With all kinds of loot dropping in Path of Exile, the helpfulness of item filters can make sorting through the treasure much faster compared to tediously sifting through your items one by one. While you can make a custom filter for yourself, the only drawback is that it’s pretty time-consuming to make. As such, we’ve rounded up a list of the best Path of Exile items drop sorters you can use.

StupidFatHobbit’s Loot Filter

StupidFatHobbit’s l is primarily designed for racers. But it’s doesn’t fall short when it comes to mapping and end game content either. The filter automatically transitions as you level up, do some mapping, and when you’ve reached the endgame. There are 3 presets in StupidFatHobbit’s items sorter: General, Strict, and Uberstrict. You can use it from level 1-100 with ease and without doing any modifications at all, making it an item sorter that you should consider using.

Neversink’s Loot Filter                                                         

Neversink’s item sorter is one of the most widely known filters in Path of Exile. Designed to serve as an all-in-one leveling plus endgame item sorter, this extremely versatile filter gives strong visual cues in order to distinguish a good treasure to a god-tier item drop. Neversink’s loot filter has preset that you can select ranging from Soft to Uber-Strict, making it flexible and great for new players or low-level characters. As such, the loot filter is commonly used throughout the community and is considered to be the best one due to its user-friendliness.

Greengroove’s Loot Filter

Greengroove’s offers a ton of features and presets—making it a favorite for both beginners and advanced players. With five unique options for you to choose from such as: Leveling, Caster, Endgame, Racing, and Magic Find, the customization it provides for players is top tier. There are also special audio cues for certain drops. To add an extra depth of customizability, Greengroove’s item sorter can be switched to six different color themes: Amethyst, Antlantisite, Bloodstone, Jade, Zoisite, and Game Like. Undoubtedly, this filter is perfect for whatever stage you are in the game.

And there you have it! The three best item sorters you can use to make your life easier when farming items for PoE currency and PoE orbs. Are there some notable loot filters that we’ve left out? Let us know by leaving a comment or two to let us know!

OSRS Iorwerth Dungeon Guide

 

OSRS Iorwerth Dungeon GuideAnother day, another dungeon for the OSRS community! The unique training dungeon of the Iorwerthclan is finally available to explore! No doubt you will face macabre creatures of the night such as Dark Beasts, Kurasks and more, but what else is there to find in this all-new dungeon?

Or will you barely make it out alive as those selfsame furious beasts chase after you, wanting to skin you alive for disturbing their home? Join us as we explore the mysterious cavern filled with OSRS gold and insanely high-level monsters!

What is The Iorwerth Dungeon?

The Iorwerth Dungeon belongs to the warriors and slayers of the Iorwerth clan. This facility is an elite training dungeon for aspiring soldiers looking to serve the military. It is located in Prifddinas’ Iorwerth district near the south-west part of the city. You will only have access to the dungeon once you have completed the Song of the Elves quest. After doing so, you then will be able to accept Slayer tasks from Konar who is located inside the dungeon.

The dungeon offers a lot more than just Slayer tasks, though. It also consists of numerous rooms, all of which contain a slew of creatures inside them that have a chance to drop crystal shards. You can also use a dwarf multi-cannon when battling against them, but the whole dungeon itself is based on single-way combat. As a surprise, you can also locate Morvran by the dungeon’s exit!

Monsters You Can Find

As you probably know by now, there are multiple rooms in theIorwerth Dungeon, all of which are rife with monsters. Here are the ones that you can find inside these rooms:

Dark Beast—Dark Beasts are monsters that can be found in the Mourner Tunnels besides in Iorwerth Dungeon. Requiring about 90 Slayerto slay, they are the only monsters that can drop Dark Bows and the Death Talisman. These Dark Beasts can attack both in Melee and Magic, and are deemed aggressive monsters from the Dark Dimension. They also have accurate melee attacks, meaning you’ll have to use a “Protect from Melee” if you don’t have much health.

Kurask—Large and heavy with sharp horns attached to its head, the Kurask is a slayer monster that can be a bit of a headache to deal with. Besides requiring 70 Slayer to even damage them, you’ll have to equip yourself with a leaf-bladed spear, leaf-bladed sword, leaf-bladed battleaxe, broad arrows, broad bolts, or magic darts. The Kurask is also immune to poison and venom. Besides that, they’re known for their drops—such as the light mystic robe top, kurask head, and leaf-bladed sword.

Nechryaels—The Nechryaels is an evil death demon that will require you to have a whopping 80 Slayer just to deal damage to them. These creatures are highly farmed for their rune boots drop. The rune boots are among the very few ones that can offer a Strength bonus when used. The Nechryaels also drop seeds and combat runes often. To deal with a Nechryaels, use Arclight to whittle down their health immediately. This is an effective strategy since they’re demonic creatures.

Waterfiend—Waterfiends are made of water and have high resistance against all forms of combat—except crush attacks. They attack players using magic projectiles that are similar to Water Blasts, they also have a magical ranged attack that resembles ice arrows. You can kill this monster with relative ease since it requires only 1 Slayer.

Bloodvelds— The “Lickitung” of Old School RuneScape, Bloodvelds are demons that use their long tongues to attack their opponents. They mostly drop mithril items and black boots, so in terms of rarity, there’s not much incentive to farm them. Bloodvelds require 50 Slayerfor you to deal damage to them.

Moss Giants—Moss Giants are commonly-seen monsters throughout the world of OSRS. They are large creatures that have a human-like resemblance to their features. While they’re not exactly ideal for those who want to farm up on OSRS gold by killing monsters, Moss Giants are what players commonly train on. This is due to their low defense capabilities.

HOW TO BEAT FFXIV’S OPERATION ARCHON

Operation Archon is the last story quest of the base game. As such, players need to beat it to unlock postgame content and beyond. However, to beat it, you need a full team of eight, as well as a sound strategy to follow. Don’t worry, this won’t make you spend your hard-earned FFXIV Gil.

Read on for the strategy and team composition.

FFXIV OPERATION ARCHON

Team Composition

You have 8 slots. Assign four slots to damage dealers, two to tanks, and two for healers. This way, you can separate into two teams. Two damage dealers, a tank, and a healer make up each team. As for why, it will be detailed in the strategy section.

For recommended classes, Summoners are valuable since they can call in creatures to temporarily fill in the roles of downed allies. They’re also exceptional damage dealers through their damage over time effects. Then there are White Mages, who have the best HP recovery skills and buffs. However, even if you haven’t recruited any of those two, you’ll still be able to beat the quest if you follow the strategy. That is, as long as you also complete the roles.

Strategy

There are two tankers in the team. While one takes on the boss, the other acts as an off-tank. At a certain point in the fight, extra mobs will appear. It’s the off-tank’s job to keep those enemies from harassing the main tank. That’s why you’ll need two teams. One will focus on the boss, and the other will focus on the extra mobs that will appear.

Now, the boss has three major damage-dealing attacks to avoid. First, it shoots sparks in front of it. A critical hit can OHKO DPS and healers in range. Avoid being in front as much as possible if you’re not a tanker. Second, it shoots out a ring of fire that will damage anyone caught inside. You’ll see the range of the ring where it will land. Lastly, it will fire missiles that can kill anyone in the middle of the explosion. A red circle will appear where the missile will land. The main tank will have to drag the boss out of range so the DPS can continue dealing damage while avoiding the missiles.

Keep on damaging the boss while being mindful of the above strategy, and you’ll see the fight to the end.

Additional Notes

It doesn’t matter which Final Fantasy classes you recruit. What’s more important is being able to follow the strategy and having the right characters for each role. The teams can be broken into 3 and 5, as long as one character fills each role in the three-man team. They should also be able to keep the extras at bay so the other team can do their jobs properly. Communicate and work with your teammates, not against them.

If you find your attacks are not effective from behind the boss, try going to the side. Pay attention so you don’t end up in front of it though. Healers should keep the party’s HP topped up as much as possible as they join in the attack.

And that’s that for Operation Archon! Following these instructions should let you finish the fight easily so you can get back to farming FFXIV currency. Continue enjoying Final Fantasy XIV!
