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!

We’re All Crazy for Path of Exile Delirium Newest Expansion!

Fall into your exile’s delirium and nightmare in Path of Exile‘s newest league. Like with the other expansions, Delirium brings new mechanics, new PoE skills, items, and PoE orbs to the fold. More than that, there will be updates to the base game as well.

Here’s a look at all the interesting bits about the expansion.

Dive into Your Nightmare

Delirium’s core mechanic is the appearance of Mirrors of Delirium. Past it, you’ll encounter the world of Delirium. A thick fog covers this world, changing the appearance and behavior of existing enemies (including bosses) and adding new ones. The farther away you get from the mirror, the harder it will be to survive. However, that’s also where the greatest rewards can be found!

It lets you control how far you want the challenge to go. There is always the option to retreat and let the fog dissipate. The Mirrors are usually near the beginning of maps, allowing you to progress throughout the entirety of it through the fog. That means that bosses will have a double dose of difficulty thrown at you. Specifically, they’re deep within the fog, and they’re unpredictable due to its influence. Story bosses aren’t exempt from this rule.

With these new mechanics, the expansion also introduces Orbs of Delirium. Use these orbs on maps to increase their difficulty. Different kinds also increase the likelihood of you obtaining certain rewards. Mix and match to balance the challenge and what you can get from it. How deep will you go in your Delirium?

Everything New in This Expansion

Other than this exciting new mechanic, there are several new additions to the game.

PoE Skills

Two new skills are introduced, but there will be four new ones at launch. Also, there will be three new support gems as well. The two introduced skills are Blade Burst and Kinetic Bolt.

Blade Burst lets you detonate blades from your skills. It pairs well with skills such as Bladefall, Blade Vortex, and Ethereal Knives. Add in a ‘Cast on…’ support gem and watch your enemies fall. Also, the expansion finally lets you cast ‘Animate Weapon’ on the same kind of blades.

Kinetic Bolt is a mesmerizing wand attack that fires a bolt that zigzags as it flies. If you pair it with Barrage Support, you can watch the bolts weave through waves of enemies in artistic patterns.

Look forward to the rest, as these are promising new additions!

Unique Items

There are two PoE uniques to come, Algor Mortis and Perfidy.

The former is a pair of Carnal Mitts. Its effects focus on inflicting the Sap ailment on enemies affected by your chilling areas.  What’s more, it increases your Lightning Damage for those same enemies. It also adds 70 points to your Energy Shield, and increases the effects of non-damaging ailments.

The latter is a Glorious Plate that allows you to carry two different banners at the same time. Then it allows you to increase both of their stages by hitting enemies with melee. It has further enhancements for War and Dread Banners. Lastly, it also modifies Melee Damage and Maximum Life.

Cluster Jewels and Extending the Passive Skill Tree

This is perhaps the most interesting addition of the expansion. Enemies found in the fog of Delirium may drop these rare jewels that can expand your passive skill tree. That means more opportunities to customize your builds, and you can even chain them up to three times. Some of them will even give you a passive skill, from a pool of 280 new ones.

What’s even more interesting is that they are craftable! You can reroll the stats and modifiers of these jewels to suit your needs. Theory crafters and build enthusiasts will go crazy at all the new opportunities these jewels can provide.

A Mysterious Figure

While exploring the fog and destroying enemies, you might find some Simulacrum Splinters. Collecting 100 of these will let you open a portal to a Simulacrum. These are the endgame bosses of the league, so be prepared before you try challenging them.

They also seem to hold the mysteries of the fog. Will you brave your nightmares for victory, or fall prey to your fear before ever reaching the end?

Delirious with Excitement

The Delirium League is coming to the game on March 13th. Soon, you’ll be lost in the fog, gathering all these cool Path of Exile uniques, PoE items, and skills. As you wait until it gets released, you can continue to farm for PoE currency such as Chaos Orbs. Other than that, continue enjoying Path of Exile.

Have fun, before your nightmare awakens and delirium fills Wraeclast!

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 all the OSRS Gold you can find!

 

Top 5 Best Items in WoW Classic

WoW Classic Items

The best items in World of Warcraft Classic usually go for a lot of WoW Classic gold. Despite all that, the unusual and yet positively unique items that you find as you explore the game are part of what makes the experience of playing this MMORPG so special. Since WoW Classic has also brought back past items that didn’t make it to the WoW Vanilla version, it means that this also marks the return of WoW Classic items that aren’t exactly usable in raid or PvP situations. To help you determine which items to seek out, we’ve listed down the top 5 best items in WoW Classic guide! If you want to know more, then read on!

  1. Atiesh, The Greatest Staff of All Time

If you’re a Priest, Druid, Mage, or even a Warlock, chances are you’ve heard of the Atiesh. This staff is considered to be one of the rarest legendary weapons to ever exist in the realms of World of Warcraft. Only a small number of players have successfully completed the 40-player raids in Naxxramas, making the staff difficult to obtain. If you didn’t know, this specific raid requires you to defeat multiple bosses such as Kel’Thuzad and the demon Atiesh in one sitting!

  1. Hook of the Master Angler

This little trinket not only makes for a great piece to show off to your friends, but it’s incredibly easy to obtain. Not all great items have to be hard to get after all. To acquire the Hook of the Master Angler, all you have to do is win the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza event that’s held once per week for all of the servers in World of Warcraft Classic. When you use this item, you’ll be turned into a fish! That’s right. You can use this to travel the world via the ocean waters! What’s more, you’ll have a faster movement speed compared to just walking. This WoW Classic item is extremely useful since you can use it to run away from your enemies by simply jumping in a lake and wiggling your fins away from trouble.

  1. Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros

Sulfuras is the weapon of choice of Ragnaros, the Firelord. Compared to most of the weapons in WoW Classic, this item has a very low drop rate of 3%. As such, most people just opt to create it themselves along with a blacksmith that has at least a skill of 300. If you are a Paladin, Druid, Warrior, or Shaman, this weapon is the holy grail of all weapons. To create this item, you’ll have to purchase the blueprint or Plans from LokhtosDarkbargainer in exchange for some Sulfuron Ingot which can be found in the Incinerator from a Golemagg.  You’ll also need the Eye of Sulfuras, which is dropped by Ragnaros once you’ve defeated. Combine these two items and you’ve got yourself a legendary mace.

  1. Barov Peasant Caller

The Barov Peasant Caller is a unique item that lets you call three servants from House Barov. If you ever need a hand, this WoW Classic item can help you out. Once the servants are summoned, you can let them fight alongside you for a few minutes. Take note that the servants you’ll be summoning with this trinket are all randomly generated races, so don’t expect to see the same face twice.

  1. Skull of Impending Doom

The Skull of Impending Doom off-hand is an item that has immense usability (especially for Warlocks) in certain PvP situations thanks to its great movement speed bonus. More specifically, it increases your movement speed by 60%, but it also deals 100-500 damage and drains your mana for about 100-500 every 2 seconds that the item is activated. Despite the fact that the item drains your mana and health, many players use this to avoid crowd control moves.

Those are the five WoW Classic items that we think are the best that WoW Classic has to offer! Some of the items listed here won’t break the bank or cost too much WoW Classic gold or (WoW gold). We made sure that everyone is sure to have a great item regardless of your level. So which item is your favorite? Leave a comment down below and tell us all about it!

The Differences between WoW Classic and Original

wow classic vs wow original

WoW Classic has been out for some time now, but how well does it stack up when put next to the Vanilla version? The original vanilla WoW came out such a long time ago. At this point, it’s been almost 16 years since its release. Since not a lot of people talk about the differences between World of Warcraft Classic and WoW Original, we’re here to do just that. We’ve already had an ample amount of time exploring WoW Classic, so we can really see stark contrasts between the two versions of the game such as how easy it is to farm WoW Classic gold, hence we’ll be talking about the major differences between the two giants—or at least the ones that stick out the most!

The Economy

If you’ve ever played on a private server in the Original World of Warcraft, chances are you’ve already noticed something about the economy. The economy moves at a relatively slow pace and doesn’t just fluctuate around like an ocean during high tide. While in Classic WoW, the economy moved rather rapidly—to the point that the inflation rate of gold is much higher compared to that of WoW Vanilla. Although essential items like general materials and items used for leveling professions are still cheap, players in WoW Classic can easily accumulate tons of gold. This is thanks to the introduction of many efficient ways of farming gold.

Raid Prep

Raids have become more accessible for players in Classic WoW compared to Original. In Original, it was rare to see players have full buffs and every type of potion in their arsenal. But now, people just easily charge through this aspect of the game while having every consumable potion that you can imagine. It’s not because the game is easier, but it’s more thanks to the fact that players, especially the ones that have played Original World of Warcraft before, know what’s coming. Since everything has been data mined, players know what they’re getting into—making them more efficient and effective. There aren’t any surprises anymore, since every patch that’s going to be released for WoW Classic is almost the same as the ones back then for Original WoW.

The Trending Profession

Back in the original WoW version, professions weren’t really all that important. In fact, some of the top-ranked players never really had a goal and skipped them entirely; either that or they opted for something else. Today in Classic WoW, whether it’s for PvE or PvP players—hardcore or not—there is one prominent profession: Engineering. This profession has become a hit thanks to being a great help in dungeons and raids. It’s also the only profession that lets you have a companion pet. Despite these great things, what made Engineering so fun is the simple fact that it’s a fun skill to get in on. The gadgets that you get to tinker with are all unique and combo-ing with this skill is super satisfying.

Playability

The progress in Original WoW is absurdly slow. Granted the game is almost 16 years old, but it always felt like the endgame was miles away. While this hasn’t changed that much in WoW Classic, there have been some new additions that were made to liven up the snail’s pace. One of the highlights includes the revamped AddOns system. In a nutshell, AddOns are used for players to customize the user interface to their liking. They’re so popular to the point that there are lists of the best AddOns that you can use depending on what you’re going for. For instance, if you want an interface that prioritizes how much WoW Classic gold you’ve accumulated, you can easily download one.  AddOns systems are a huge help if you don’t want any clutter in your interface.

And that’s about it for the differences of the OG WoW and WoW Classic! Since the release of Classic, World of Warcraft has been such a hit, to the point that guides like on how to farm WoW Classic Items and gold pop up almost every day.. Are there any differences that you can find between the two versions of World of Warcraft that we didn’t discuss? Let us know by leaving a comment or two down below!

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Revealed at Blizzcon

World of Warcraft Shadowlands

The recent Blizzcon 2019 event saw the announcement of a brand new expansion for World of Warcraft, titled Shadowlands. The new expansion is set for release next year, and sees newly converted-antagonist Sylvanas Windrunner showcasing his power across the whole of Azeroth. The next entry will have players setting aside their WoW Classic Gold from a brand new extension, as a follow-up to the Battle of Azeroth edges ever closer.

A new campaign in the afterlife

Blizzard took to the main stage of BlizzCon to show off a brand new cinematic trailer for the upcoming title, in wish we see Lich King Bolvar Fordragon, who you may remember from previous WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King. The King is thwarted by Sylvanas in Icecrown, and what happens next seems to set the foundations of what fans can expect from Shadowlands. The aspect of the afterlife will play a key role in the expansion, which is caused by the destruction of the Lich King’s crown.

As for the Shadowlands itself, it is revealed to be an infinite realm where players will have to align themselves with Shephards of the Dead, which will serve as the covenants in the game. The full covenant campaign will take you across new zones known as Bastion, Maldraxxus, Ardenweald, Revendreth, and the Maw, and players will be offered new abilities that can be earned via leveling. These will be determined by the class that you choose, which offers bonuses depending on which ones that you choose.

Tower of the Damned

One of the most enticing aspects of the Shadowlands is the Tower of the Damned. Within the ghastly Maw, players will come across Torghast, Tower of the Damned, which provides one of the most re-playable segments of the entire expansion. The cursed prison is inhabited with unspeakable evil, in which rooms will chop and change to make a fresh experience. Awaiting the victor is the spoils of treasure after setting the spirits within free.

New Leveling System

What fans will be interested to know is that Shadowlands will bring in a brand new leveling system. If you are already at the max-level available, then you will begin the expansion at level 50, with a new level cap of 60. You will be able to use this new system to your advantage, as you take on the Army of the Dead into a brand new experience. The idea of the level cap being altered in such has way has been rumored for some time now and is something that fans had expected to happen at some point within the last few expansions. This system will be familiar to players who have been running through World of Warcraft Classic, so if you have managed to reach level 120, you will be scaled down to level 50 when Shadowlands releases next year.

As far as your character goes, there is a variety of new customization options at your disposal, regardless of what race you choose. So if you are looking to mix up your appearance, then this feature is definitely worth looking forward to. If you are looking at how alts will work, which are characters made by existing players who already have a character already, then these will have the option to level up as they would previously from the beginning or start completely anew. Past expansions will also be available to players, so you have the choice of doing so in Classic WoW, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor or Legion. Whichever you choose, the content will scale to a point where the leveling process works to cater to which expansion you select.

So, those who are enjoying spending their hard-earned WoW Classic Gold in the Vanilla WoW title of the game, prepare to take on a brand new expansion next year when the follow up to the critically acclaimed Battle of Azeroth lands. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is set for release in 2020!

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.

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.
