World of Warcraft – How You Can Obtain the Pricey Mighty Caravan Brutosaur Mount

World of Warcraft – How You Can Obtain the Pricey Mighty Caravan Brutosaur Mount

The heftily priced WoW mount in WoW may set you back a lot of coins, but there are ways of grinding towards affording it.

The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur, should you desire to own one, is going to set you back a fair amount of your WoW Classic Gold. In fact, it just so happens to be the most costly WoW mount that’s available in the entirety of World of Warcraft. If you do want to get your hands on this WoW mount, then its either going to cost you a LOT of money or you’re going to need to put some work in.

via GIPHY

The Cost of WoW Mounts

Typically, you can get the amount for the game from the store for $25. For the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur however, you are going to need a significant amount more. When it first released, the value of the WoW mount stood at about $475. For $20, you can purchase WoW tokens, which can buy game time and be sold in the auction house in exchange for in-game gold. Back then, if you had no gold, you would have needed 24 tokens to buy the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur.

Fast-forward to more recent times, and the tokens are worth around 140,000 gold. Seeing as the tokens set you back $20 of real money, it would cost you over $700 for this World of Warcraft Mount. Its also going to be harder to obtain, with it being moved to the black market, making it rarer and more expensive than it was before.

So needless to say, if you want to get this WoW mount, it’s going to take a lot of effort on your behalf, since its more than likely that you aren’t going to want to part with an absurd amount of your real-life cash. Thankfully there are ways for you to make a decent profit to be able to eventually afford one.

What Method Should I Use to Get the WoW Mount?

A good way of gold making to go towards your World of Warcraft Mount is to buy and sell materials for profit. The reason being is that this is a task that you are able to do whilst you’re AFK. It may not be the most glamourous way of doing things, and it is probably one of the more time-consuming methods that are out there, but nevertheless, it is going to fetch you enough gold in the long run.

You could also use more than one character to earn gold. If you use several maxed-out characters to do this then you can make a fair amount of gold to go towards your rather hefty goal. This method, using an Alt Army, can be a long, long process. Having to level several characters is naturally going to take you a long while. So as with the previous method, its time consuming, but in the end, it’s worth it to have something to go towards your goal.

You could also head down to the auction house to see what WoW Classic items are in high demand. By making these World of Warcraft items to sell there, you can make an insane amount of gold. This method will be unavailable when the next expansion, Shadowlands arrives, so be sure to make the most of this whilst you have the opportunity to do so.

Yes, the sheer amount needed in order to purchase the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is borderline absurd for many. The very fact that the comparison to real-world money from the amount of WoW Gold that you are going to need ventures up into costing you way into the high hundreds if you want to buy it outright with no tokens already in place can be very daunting. It isn’t impossible for you to do however, it will ultimately take a lot of dedication and some smart tactics for you to make sure you can get enough in a reasonable time. Regardless of what method you choose, it is going to take time, but imagine the feeling when you are finally riding around on the back of your very own WoW Mighty Caravan Brutosaur? The envy of many players, for sure.

OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

The Nightmare of Ashihama has some great unique loot drops, including an armor set and two formidable weapons.

Whilst out questing for OSRS Gold and glory, you may have come across the Nightmare of Ashihama. Often abbreviated to The Nightmare, this formidable creature found in the Sisterhood Sanctuary, and can drop a series of eye-catching pieces of loot. Before we take a look at what this loot is, you will need to make sure that you have gotten to a point where you can access Morytania. Apart from that, there are no extra requirements needed to fight The Nightmare.

As far as what The Nightmare is, the enemy described as a “large, otherworldly horror” that takes the life force from those who are asleep, which drained until there is no more. This is also said to be the cause of terrifying nightmares, making the name a particularly good fit. Yet, if you do decide to take her on, then you could end up getting one of the following drops.

The OSRS Nightmare Staff

The drop from the Nightmare is described as once belonging to the shamans of Ashihama, though the real name of it has now been lost in translation. If you do manage to get a hold of one, then you will be required to have level 65 Magic, as well as 50 hitpoints School RuneScapes in order to equip it.

What’s more, players are able to attach three different orbs to the staff to give them different abilities. By attaching a Volatile, Harmonised, or Eldritch orb to the staff, you will create a Runescape staff nightmare with a precursor of whichever orb you attached, for example, the Eldritch Nightmare and so on. It is a rare chance of dropping at 0.437%, but with its Magic attack and defense bonuses, its worth keeping an eye on.

Eldritch Orb

As mentioned above, there are three orbs that you can attach to the Nightmare Staff, and these orbs are dropped by The Nightmare also. The orbs are incredibly rare drops, with Eldritch coming in at 0.0972%.

If you do manage to get a hold of one and attach it to Old School Runescape Staff Nightmare, then you can use it to auto-cast offensive standard spells. You will need the same 50 Hitpoints as the staff does to wield but will also need 75 Magic skill to go with it. It can also be used for Ancient Magicks, so it can prove to be very valuable to you.

Harmonised Orb

The chances of a Harmonised Orb dropping is the same as the Eldritch Orb and can be used on The Nightmare Staff to make the Harmonised Nightmare. To wield this OSRS staff nightmare, you will need the same requirement stats as those with the Eldritch Orb. The difference between the two orb staffs is that the Harmonised Staff Nightmare cannot auto-cast Ancient Magicks.

What it does offer however is increased attack speed when casting from the standard OSRS spellbook without any delay. It can also be used in PvP world settings since it isn’t technically classed as a powered staff, which is good news if you ever find yourself in this situation.

Volatile Orb OSRS

The Volatile Orb has the same drop rate as the previous two, and once again has the same wielding requirements. It also works in a similar way of the Eldritch Orb, in that it can auto-cast offensive standard ancient spells and Ancient Magicks when combined to make the Volatile Nightmare Staff.

When this staff is created, it has a special attack known as Immolate. This takes 55% of special attack energy from the player who contributes 50% more accuracy to their range attacks. Naturally, this is going to create a pretty high and accurate amount of damage. Just how much magic damage is caused depends on where your Magic level is at, with a maximum possible hit of 80 when you reach level 99. This is increased to 89 if you find yourself on a Slayer task.

Inquisitor’s Armour Items

There are three Inquisitor’s armor drops that can come from The Nightmare. With the exception of the Inquisitor’s Mace, which we will discuss shortly, there is a 0.291% chance of you getting your hands on them.

Starting with the Great Helm, you will need 70 Strength and 30 Defence in order to equip it. Once you have done so, you will be able to increase your base damage and accuracy if you use crush attacks. This is boosted if you manage to get all of the pieces of the Inquisitor’s armor.

The Inquisitor’s Hauberk has the same requirement stats as the helm as part of the armor sets. By equipping it you will also see the same increases of damage dealt with accuracy, which stands at 0.5%, increasing to 2.5% when equipped with the other pieces of armor. Meanwhile, the final piece of the armor set is the Inquisitor’s Plateskirt. It’s worth mentioning that all these Inquisitor’s items count towards being a Zamorakian item when you are in the God Wars Dungeon.

Inquisitor’s Mace

Finally, there is a mace that can accompany that armor set you’ve just read about. Though it has a rarer drop rate at 0.146% compared to the armor items and Nightmare Staff, it can be a useful item to get a hold of.

Since the armor set has boosts that cater to the crush attack style, it comes in handy that the mace is a crush weapon. You will need 75 Attack in order to wield it, and thankfully doesn’t need any charges, nor does it degrade. As far as its combat stats go, it has a +95 crush bonus, as well as a +52 stab attack bonus. It also has a +89 Strength bonus, so it can prove to be a very effective weapon.

These are the unique drops that you can expect to see from The Nightmare. Each time you kill it there is a chance for you to roll two unique drop tables, which will contain one of each of the items and armor. So whilst you won’t have to fork out your OSRS Gold, you will need to defeat The Nightmare a few times to get the chance to earn all of the items on this list. Having said that, the bonuses with the armor and its overall look is very appealing, so if you are prepared to fight The Nightmare, then be sure to try and get as many of these items as you can.

How to Get PoE Uniques

And build your collection

PoE uniques are pieces of equipment that have unusual effects or different modifiers. Some character builds are based on these effects. They’re not supposed to be stronger than high leveled rare equipment, but they’re a popular PoE trade item. One factor that makes it so is their rarity since outside of some exceptions, they’re rather hard to farm.

Here we’ll be listing a few ways you can increase the chances of getting one. Then you can even sell them to get PoE currency from trading!

Play the Game

Generally, simply playing the game will give you PoE unique items. All kinds of enemies or destructible objects have a chance to drop a unique. It’s a small chance, but it’s there. It’s also random, so you don’t know which one you’re going to get.

The level of the item you can get depends on the level and rarity of the monsters you’re fighting. Say the item is level 40. Normal monsters in level 40+ maps will drop that, magic/rare/unique monsters in level 39 maps will drop it, and level 38 rare/unique monsters will drop it.

PoE Orbs of Chance

This PoE orb has a chance of transforming a PoE item into a Path of Exile unique form. For example, using it on a sword might give you a PoE unique sword. It will not turn into armor or another type of weapon. Since certain unique items are league-specific, you will need the relevant map mods to get those. The chances of this succeeding are quite low, so you might need a few tries to be successful.

Vaal Orbs

Some unique items ‘corrupted’ and Vaal Orbs give you a chance to get them. This is mostly for unique jewels and some equipment.

Prophecies

Some prophecies award you with unique items after fulfilling them. A majority of the ones that ask you to hunt down a certain enemy and defeat it will do so. There’s also “The Mysterious Gift” prophecy, which gives you a random unique when you trade in five others to a vendor.

Vendor Recipes

You can trade in some items to get a unique from a vendor. These PoE uniques are unavailable through other methods. They’re not included in the world drop pool and Orb of Chance or Vaal Orbs won’t result in these uniques. The level of the item received from this method depends on the lowest level of the items traded-in.

Divination Cards

Some of these items (such as the Tabula Rasa) are rewards from Divination Cards. Like the Vendor Recipe ones, these uniques can’t be found in other methods.

Event Competition Rewards

Some event competitions may award unique items to the winners. Note that not all events will have this kind of reward.

PoE Trade

Of course, you can just trade with other people for these items. However, prices may be a little high because of the difficulty of getting some specific ones.

And that’s all the sources of PoE uniques in the game. Have fun building up your collection of these items!

Raiding Can Wait: What to Do Before Blackwing Lair Drops in WoW Classic

Raiding Can Wait: What to Do Before Blackwing Lair Drops in WoW Classic

Contrary to what WoW’s PVE culture has become, there is more to WoW Classic than just raiding… and then eagerly waiting for the next raid to come. Fittingly enough, with Phase 3 inbound, WoW Classic will have Blackwing Lair soon. So, aside from raiding current dungeons and amassing WoW Classic Gold, what are other things can you do before the not-so-new content hits?

Here’s a list for that.

The Class Struggle

While Blackwing Lair is the content players are most excited about, there’s more to Phase 3 than that. In fact, there are other equally important things coming, and among them are class quests.

Aside from the fact that this will lead players to the Sunken Temple, it will also give them a chance to choose between three items. Each of them has pros and cons, so choose wisely. But don’t focus on just the dungeon or the item you will get from it. Rather, brush up on the quests as a whole so you can better prepare for them.

Dancing in the Moonlight

You can enter a raid any time, although there’s not much point doing so if you’ve already hit the lockout. Then other events aren’t exactly time-limited, but you don’t exactly have round-the-clock access to them. A good example of that is the Darkmoon Faire.

This regular event, which will give you the chance to buy items you won’t be able to find anywhere else, happens only once a month. Thankfully, it lasts a week, but it’s still easy to miss out on if you happen to be too busy with other content.

There are all sorts of trinkets for sale, and many of them give considerable boosts. And if you’re either a priest or a druid, the trinket Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon is a must-buy, as it grants a 2% chance of getting 100% mana regeneration after casting a spell. This effect lasts for 15 seconds. With how often these two classes cast spells because of their support role, it’s going to be quite the help.

Getting Ready

If you really can’t take raiding off your mind, here’s a good way to do something different but related to it: preparing consumables for it. While waiting for Blackwing Lair to arrive, start farming for these items now, so that you can just focus on raiding later on, and then do other things aside from farming once you got locked down.

If you’re a tank, there’s another raiding-related preparation you should be doing now: installing a threat meter. Because most bosses in Blackwing Lair can’t be taunted, you’re going to have to hold their aggro the old-fashioned way. If you don’t have a threat meter, this can get quite tricky.

Thankfully, there are lots of threat meters you can find online, and most of them are for free. It takes less than an hour to download and install a meter, so the hardest thing to do when it comes to installing them is opening your browser and hitting that download button.

Last but not least, get yourself the Onyxia Scale Cloak. Without it, you won’t be able to fight the black drake bosses in the raid, as they have the deadly ability called Shadowflame, which deals massive damage over time.

To get one, you have to turn over Onyxia’s head to Bolvar Fordragon. You’ll find him at the Stormwind Keep.

Don’t just slack off while you wait for the Blackwing Lair to drop; do the things we recommend. Trust us, you’ll be better off for it. So, which of these things are you going to do first? Let us know!

A Simple Guide to WoW Classic’s Blackwing Lair Raid

A Simple Guide to WoW Classic’s Blackwing Lair Raid

Simple doesn’t mean short, though

WoW Classic Blackwing Lair Raid

WoW Classic’s The Blackwing Lair has eight bosses your group will have to defeat. Each of them has mechanics and attacks to keep track of and have coinciding measures against. There’s also the ‘Suppression Room’ which was the first raid gauntlet in the history of World of Warcraft. Everything you need to do in the raid is a delicate balance requiring teamwork, coordination, and communication to get through.

The rewards are numerous, from awesome pieces of gear to some amount of WoW Classic gold. There’s also the resulting camaraderie and undeniable feeling of accomplishment in completing such a difficult raid. Without further ado, here are the bosses, and how you can deal with them.

Razorgore the Untamed

The first hurdle of the raid isn’t too hard to defeat, as long as you know what you’re doing. What your group needs to do in order is:

  • Take control of the orb on the left side of the room
  • Use mind-controlled Razorgore to destroy eggs
  • Then defeat him

Of course, it isn’t that simple in practice. Rush to the Orb of Domination and nuke its guardian, making it available to use. Minions appear as you try to destroy eggs, requiring the rest of the group to split into four to cover more ground. Each group must have a good distribution of off-tanks, DPS, and healers. Then, when it’s time to defeat him, ranged attackers should run and hide behind a pillar near the mind-controlled orb. That way, they get to avoid the damage from his Fireball Volley, while still staying in range.

Melee attackers and tanks need a Free Action Potion, as Razorgore will stomp and disorient players in range. If you want to keep the damage up, the potion is necessary to continue the onslaught.

It is necessary to have your main tank take control of Razorgore, as once he breaks free of the mind control, he will target whoever controlled him last. Also, have at least two tanks with the most threats on him, since he is immune to taunts. Have them build up aggro, so he won’t go out of control once a Conflagration happens.

Vaelastrasz the Corrupt

You’ll want to defeat him as fast as you possibly can. The group will not survive a war of attrition against him. It’s a good thing a buff called ‘Essence of the Red’ applies to everybody in the room once the fight starts. The benefit it gives is unlimited resources. Spam all of your max level spell and abilities to defeat him as fast as possible.

The reason for that is the other buff that will apply to only one character, Burning Adrenaline. While it doubles the damage dealt and negates cast time, it reduces health every second until death. Upon death, they explode, dealing massive damage to whoever’s nearby. Anyone who gets it should still deal as much damage (or healing) as they can while moving away from the others. If you take too long, your main tank will get it, and they will die no matter what.

Since the boss is also immune to taunts, you need an off-tank to keep control of him. Fury WarriorsHeroic Strike is good for this if they’re the off-tank. Others with the same class should use Cleave instead to keep their threat down. At any rate, if the whole group has high enough DPS, Vaelastrasz should go down pretty quickly.

Broodlord Lashlayer

Broodlord Lashlayer waits at the end of the Suppression Room, which you’ll have to get through to fight him. Getting through the room is a dance of kiting and defeating Hatchers and Taskmasters, disabling pylons, and running to the next safe spot. It’s more complicated than that, but it’ll take too long to describe here.

Fighting the boss, everybody should be positioned with their backs against the wall, even the boss. That way, when he uses Blast Wave, nobody gets flying back into the Suppression Room. The other mechanic to watch out for is Knock Away, which targets your tank and reduces their threat by half. Again, off-tanks should have the second or third most threat. Keep the tanks alive and threatening, sustain the DPS, and you should have no trouble defeating him.

Firemaw, Ebonroc, and Flamegor

These three drakes have similar mechanics, though they have a different third mechanic. All three of them can cast Shadowflame, so an Onyxia Scale Cloak is required for these bosses. They also have the Wing Buffet ability, which reduces threat on your tanks.

Firemaw has the Flame Buffet ability, which casts a stacking debuff on whoever gets hit. Ebonroc gets the Shadow of Ebonroc ability that casts a rather un-dispellable debuff on your tank. The debuff heals him for 25,000 points for every melee hit. Flamegor has the Fire Nova ability, which can be interrupted by a hunter’s Tranquilizing Shot.

So, the scale cloak counters Shadowflame and having tanks time their taunts counters Wing Buffet. For Flame Buffet, have two cycling groups for everybody. As one group hides to wait out the debuff, the other goes in range to fight or heal. The drakes are taunt-able, so you can have your main tank hide to wait out the debuff while an off-tank taunts him.

The strategy for Ebonroc’s unique ability is to have an off-tank taunt him if the debuff lands on the main tank. The main can then taunt him back if the off gets it. The tactic for Flamegor is to have hunters interrupt his Fire Novas.

There is a position that lets healers be in the line of sight of the tanks yet hidden to avoid getting Flame Buffet stacks. If your group finds it, healers don’t have to move to do their job.

Chromaggus

As befitting the second to the last boss of the raid, Chromaggus has many mechanics your group has to manage and counter. First are his breath attacks. He has five, though he can only use two breaths for every instance of the raid.

They are:

  • Incinerate: deals high fire damage in a cone in front of him
  • Corrosive acid: inflicts a damage over time debuff and reduces armor for its duration
  • Frost Burn: deals low frost damage and reduces attack speed for a short time
  • Ignite Flesh: similar to Incinerate, but has lower damage that can stack
  • Time Lapse: Stuns targets for 6 seconds, leaving half their health and reducing threat permanently

They’re also color-coded as red, green, blue, black, and bronze in the same order. He’ll let out a breath every 30 seconds, so with about 5 to 10 seconds left of the cast, everyone should run and hide. The main tank should backpedal to keep aggro yet avoid the breath, and healers should keep healing them.

When you read through these breaths, you’ll notice that the last one is something you don’t want to get as a mechanic in your raid. Have potentially four back-up tanks to keep the aggro off of the squishier characters if you ever get it. Switch up the tanks and carefully manage threat so everyone can do their jobs.

The second mechanic to look out for is his debuffs. There are also five and they’re color-coded as well.

  • Brood Affliction Red deals fire damage every 3 seconds and heals Chromaggus if the character dies from it
  • Brood Affliction Green reduces healing by half and deals nature damage every 5 seconds
  • Brood Affliction Blue slows movement and casting speed, and drains health and mana
  • Brood Affliction Black doubles fire damage received
  • Brood Affliction Bronze stuns the afflicted every 4 seconds and can only be removed by using Hourglass Sand

Dispel the afflictions constantly. Since the debuffs are all different types, any class with a dispelling ability should use whatever they have. Anyone who gets all five gets morphed into a hostile Drakonid that can wipe the whole party. The morphed character can be killed, but the act will also heal the boss.

The next mechanic is frenzy. Emotes alert you of when he’ll start it, which is when hunters should use Tranquilizing Shot to stop. Have 3 or 4 hunters on that duty, as the bronze affliction’s stun might take effect at that moment.

The last is Chromaggus’ magic vulnerability. Throughout the fight, he’ll shimmer, and the chat would say “Chromaggus flinches as its skin shimmers”. After the emote, he’ll become intensely vulnerable to a certain school of magic. Magic classes should find out what it is, and use that school of magic for their next spells. Because of the vulnerability, even weaker spells deal good enough damage. In a situation where they don’t have that kind of spell, a wand that deals that kind of damage will do.

Keep all of these in mind while dealing damage, and defeat Chromaggus!

Nefarian, the Lord of Blackwing Lair

Now, you’re up against the final boss of the raid. Before you’re able to, you’ll have to defeat his minions first. They’ll come from two sides, and you can split your group to deal with them both. Mages can make up one group, as one side will have frost resistant dragon and worm kin. Have the rest of the DPS handle those, and have the mages handle the other side.

At some point, Nefarian will come down in his human form and cast Shadow Volleys. Drink a Shadow Protection Potion to counter those, and continue defeating the minions.

Soon, he’ll turn into his dragon form and the real fight begins. Wearing the Onyxia Scale Cloak will take care of the brunt of his version of Shadow Flame. Again, tanks have to keep aggro and keep to his sides. Position him facing the far end of the balcony. He inflicts a debuff on whoever’s closest which reduces healing. Dispel it immediately if on the tank. He can also cast fear in a circle around him, so Fearwards, Tremor Totems, or changing stances are important in the fight.

His most annoying ability is the Class Call. It has different effects depending on which class is called, and everybody must be prepared to deal with them when they come.

Here are the actions classes should do when their call arrives:

  • Druids should stay back
  • Hunters should switch or unequip their weapons
  • Mages can cast Ice Block, or Priests and Paladins have to be on the ball to dispel polymorphed allies
  • For Paladins’ call, everybody should stop attacks, as no threat will be generated at the time. If it is well established, cast Judgement of Wisdom on him and magic users can attack him with wands
  • Priests must stop healing with direct spells. They may use Renew and Power Word: Shield.
  • As for Rogues’ call, tanks should carefully reposition the boss to avoid the annihilation of the group’s Rogues
  • When Shamans’ call comes, have all DPS be on totem killing duty. Shamans should wait until the call ends to regenerate mana
  • Kill the Corrupted Infernals that will appear during Warlocks’ call
  • Everybody should watch their threat and healers intensify their healing on the tanks for the Warrior Call. When it’s over Warriors can go back to the stance they want

At 20% health, Nefarian will raise the minions you defeated at the beginning as Bone Constructs. Defeat them while managing the calls and debuffs. Alliance groups will have a bit of advantage as the constructs are considered undead. They’ll go down easily with enough preparation. When they’re done, everybody can go back for one final push to defeating Nefarian!

With that, your group has finished the raid. Enjoy the sweet loot and WoW Classic gold as rewards. Preparation is key, so make sure you know what you’re supposed to be doing. Don’t forget to have fun while doing the raid!

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

Old School Runescape (OSRS) mobile has introduced a brand new audience to the wonderful world of Gielinor. Because of the new platform switch, there may be players who have run into issues while playing the game. One issue, in particular, revolves around the resolution of the handheld device. With that in mind, here is a short guide to help you make the most of your experience on OSRS Mobile. Pay close attention and you will be slaying demons and racking up all the OSRS Gold you can get your hands on in no time at all!

Performance Fixes

If your game is running low on performance, then there are a few ways for you to rectify it. Some of these methods may sound utterly simplistic at first glance, but they are tried-and-tested ways of fixing key performance issues.

The first fix is a classic that many of will most likely have already tried when it comes to technology in general. This method involves turning your device on and off again. This technique may be greeted with a pained groan but it can actually help with your resolution. This is because it can help your device with slow data speeds, so it is definitely worth trying straight off the bat.

Another issue revolves around data and storage. Both of these need to be able to cater to your particular device. With that being said you need to make sure that your platform has enough storage space. Without the correct storage space, your game may lag midway. Even though the app itself clocks in at just under 100mb, the numbers can increase following updates. As far as data goes, you should try to find a WiFi connection wherever possible. OSRS Mobile uses up to 2mb of data on average per hour, so connecting to WiFi could help your performance woes and save the amount of data you are using.

Tablets vs. Mobile

When OSRS was announced for mobile platforms, it raised a lot of questions. One of those being what devices we would be able to use them on. Given that the game is over a decade-and-a-half old, many assumed it would run on any handheld device. This yet is not strictly true.

OSRS Mobile, as the name suggests, is focused on the mobile experience. When it comes to tablets, it may run into some issues where performance is concerned. That isn’t to say that it won’t run smoothly on a tablet, but there will be certain devices that it may not be streamlined enough on. For the time being, you should focus on keeping OSRS on your mobile and research if your tablet is capable of running it without issue.

Battery Performance

Battery life is something else you’ll need to keep an eye on to get the most out of your OSRS Mobile experience. This is something that the developers have outlined when it comes to the performance of the game on mobile. So there are a few settings you can tinker with to make the most of OSRS Mobile.

Firstly, you can increase the game’s runtime by reducing the brightness on your phone. It would also help your battery life, and game performance if you close any background apps you have running. If your resolution is suffering too, then try to avoid areas where you will find a lot of other players. This will also help your battery life from draining too much. Finally, you can also alter your FPS settings within the game. You can find this under Mobile Options where you will see a bar that says Limit FPS. You could choose to lower this to help your battery life and the performance of the game.

These few tips should help you with your resolution on OSRS Mobile. Many will have come across issues such as lagging, and battery performance. Others may have noticed screen res lowering throughout their experience with the popular handheld MMO. Now that you have a better idea of how the resolution can be optimized, you are ready to run the game. So get out there, traverse dungeons, and shower yourself in gp! Maybe you’ll earn so much you can sell it on an OSRS Gold Sell Site.

5 Tips You Should Be Aware of In OSRS

OSRS tips

Regardless of whether you are a newcomer to Old School RuneScape or a seasoned veteran, there is never a bad time to learn some new tricks to take with you along the way. Whether your objective is to collect as much OSRS Gold as possible or simply to traverse the many dungeons in the game, there are still some things that you should take on board.

Here are a few handy tips for you to use during your time in Gielinor.

Farm Running

Herb and Farm run can be an effective method for you to use during the game. Herb runs can be done around every hour or so and farming is something that will also be time-consuming; it takes a lot of dedication. The great thing about herb running is that it does not take that much time and can prove to be very profitable if you are willing to put the effort into it.

Once you are familiar with the process, these runs will become a very useful way for you to make a profit. If you do choose to put the time in, then you can make up to 10 times the amount you pay for seeds just by using this simple method. So with that in mind, be sure to read up on all things herb and farming before putting in the required time.

Achievement Diaries

Something that you could already be familiar with in OSRS is Achievement Diaries. Your Achievement Diary offers a set of one-time tasks that can bring a number of unique rewards. It is worth mentioning that this particular feature is only available to members, so free-to-play players will be out of luck here.

But if you are looking to get the most out of your game, then these diaries are certainly worth it. Not only will they increase your skills and rewards set, but they will also test your knowledge of the game and take you to different areas, offering a rather unique experience compared to other areas of OSRS. What’s more, there is a variety of difficulty levels ranging from Easy, to Medium, Hard, and Elite. Predictably, easier diaries have far lesser requirements for you to take on, while harder tasks will test your skills and prowess, but the rewards that you will reap will most definitely be worth the investment.

Cash Investment

Now, upon hearing that sub-title you may be thinking that this has real-world applications. Whether the premise does or doesn’t depend entirely on you as a person, but when it comes to OSRS, then investing your in-game cash is a complete no-brainer in certain under the right circumstance.

This is because if you are literally in possession of stacks of cash, and not doing anything with it, it is ultimately serving no real purpose. There is a multitude of ways for you to earn money in OSRS, and therefore there are many different ways for you to spend it too. Rather than just having it sit around doing nothing for you, it may be worth investing in ways that would cater to you. Not only can it be used to buy a staggeringly high amount of items in the game, but it can also help you invest in your character’s different skill areas. Spending your hard-earned cash on supplies to take on bosses and dungeons, or those that will enhance your skills is most certainly more of effective use of your money than having it just idle away.

Use Your Downtime Efficiently

There are a variety of tasks throughout OSRS that will require you to do some grinding. This includes what many refer to as AFK (away from keyboard) for a bit of downtime from the game while your task completes. Tasks that range from cooking to washing dishes can become rather time-consuming and not much fun to sit through or look at.

However, while these tasks are taking place, it doesn’t mean you can’t use your time effectively to complete other key tasks that you may have to do in the meantime. Ultimately, it’s best to continue to focus on the task at hand so you will reap the rewards of more XP gain, since you are unlikely to do so if you do AFK. If there are any other duties that you can take on as opposed to simply setting the game down, then you’ll save yourself more time in the long run.

The Tears of Guthix Minigame

Earlier, we discussed how achievement diaries propose a duty that is separate from many other features of the game, sort of like a typical form of side quest. In a similar vein, there are mini-games within OSRS that you should set aside a few minutes for. One of these mini-games is known as Tears of Guthix, and it should only take you a few minutes to overcome.

This game gives you the opportunity once-a-week to not only gain XP, but also work on any skills that you may not have been focusing on. This could be because you simply have not prioritized that skill set or you haven’t had the means to enhance it. Either way, Tears of Guthix can prove quite useful. You can find this mini-game in the Chasm of Tears, and you will have to have completed the Tears of Guthix quest to access it. You will also have to have earned at least 100,000 XP or a single quest point since last attempting it. This, of course, doesn’t apply if it is your first time to try it.

Once you have taken these five tips on board, you will certainly have a better understanding of how the game works and how you can make the most of it. Tasks such as grinding for gold(which can be listed on OSRS gold sell sites) or doing the game’s equivalent of side quests can be time-consuming, but these methods are some of the most effective ones that you will find, so be sure to keep them in mind as you venture out into the wide world of Gielinor.

Top 5 Most Useful OSRS Items

Top 5 Most Useful OSRS Items

Just because certain items are great doesn’t mean you should break the bank just to purchase them. While expensive items in the game are oftentimes the ones being highlighted, we decided to do the exact opposite. We’ll be showing you the most useful items in OSRS; the ones that you don’t have to shell out a lot of Old School RuneScape Gold (OSRS gold) for. What with Old School RuneScape being one of the oldest MMORPGs around, it can be tough to find actual items that give the most bang for your buck considering there’s a lot to sift through. With that being said, let’s get started!

  1. Fire Cape

The Fire Cape is by far one of the most useful items in OSRS, and with good reason. This cape can be obtained as a reward when you complete the TzHaar Fight Cave. Not to be outclassed by the more powerful (and more expensive) Infernal Cape, the Fire Cape is considered to be the second-best melee cape in all of Old School RuneScape. Why is it so popular you ask? Well, it’s because of the bonuses it gives. By giving a +1 Attack bonus on all types of weapons and +11 Defense bonuses for all armor, you really can’t go wrong. The Fire Cape isn’t tradeable, though, so you won’t find it in the Grand Exchange. The good news is it’s easily obtainable by surviving all of the waves of monsters inside the Fight Cave.

  1. Rune Equipment

Rune items such as Rune axes, Rune platelegs, and Rune swords are highly-sought items in the free-to-play version of OSRS. While these are considered to be the best equipment in free-to-play worlds, they’re also great for members. Originally, they were deemed as expensive for F2P players. But things took a turn for the better after a while as prices began to drop rapidly due to the mini-game “Treasure Trails” gaining popularity. The surge in popularity resulted in these items being sold at low prices since there was suddenly too much of them. So, if you’re low on cash and in need of some good equipment, then you can easily find these in the Grand Exchange for just less than 500 OSRS gold each!

  1. Super Restore Potions

Potions are a staple in not just MMO games, but in other genres as well. In Old School RuneScape, there are tons of variations for this beloved item, but the one that you should go for is the Super Restore potion. This type of potion is incredibly useful as it can restore all of your stats that have been lowered either through combat or whatnot. Although it doesn’t restore Hitpoints or run energy, it’s a handy item to always have in your inventory during dire situations. At a price margin of 100-300 gold, it’s hard to NOT have this item under your belt at all times.

  1. Dragon Scimitar

The Dragon Scimitar is known to be one of the strongest scimitars in OSRS. While it can look expensive at about 100,000 gold if you purchase it from Daga of Ape Atoli, you can score it cheaper by buying one from the Grand Exchange instead. This weapon is great for pking (player killing), so if you’re into that, then we highly recommend that you include it in your must-buy list.

  1. Barrows Gloves

You’ve probably heard about Barrows Gloves from other people while surfing on the OSRS reddit page. The reason these gloves are always being recommended to players is that they offer the best offensive bonuses compared to any other gloves, period. This item isn’t something that you can easily get your hands on, though, as they require you to have at least 41 Defense before you can even equip them.

So, what do you think of our top 5 picks? Do you have any other items that you want to let us know about?To let other players save some Old School RuneScape Gold ( and even consider listing it on an OSRS gold sell site), comment down below and let us know what you think might be better picked!

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 has helped you. You can also make real cash if you’re interested in OSRS gold sell offers. 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.
