Listener Questions

Audio Question from Jeff

Question from Forged

Dear Hosties, quick question this week.

Currently if you want profit, you go PvM. What are your thoughts on making skilling worthwhile for profit again? How could Jagex go about implementing this?

Your cash strapped comrade, Forged.

Question from 101duck1

Hello, Shane and Trekkie, and thanks for another great podcast! 101duck1 here with a couple of questions for you. First off, as has been mentionedmany times before, herblore needs revamping to make training the skill truly worth it. What would you guys think of the concept of an Adrenaline Potion? By drinking it, it would boost adrenaline levels while in non-combat, thus increasing your effectiveness in battle right out of the gate. As this could potentially be over-powerful, 99 herblore should be requisite to make this potion. What thoughts do you have on such a concept and how do you think the Runescape community would accept it? On another note, with all of the quest re-do's that have occurred over the past year, what quest -- if you could only choose one -- would you rework? Personally, I'd like to remake either Regicide, or Monkey Madness. Thanks for answering my questions!

Question from Zant

Shane and Trekkie,

What area, NPC, or other object in RuneScape do you think needs a graphical update? Personally, I think the Black Knight Titan NPC, and the city of Keldagrim need one.

Thanks for answering my question!


Question from Gardengal4

Long time listener, first time writer.  Shane, I want you to know how impressed I am with the job you have done with the website and the podcast. As a fellow conservative I love the that you are conservative and not afraid to show it.

I have had an untrimmed farm cape for over 3 years.  Right after I got my farm cape I looked around at other capes and I liked Slayer the best. On my way to getting Slayer cape, I got 98 HP (constitution) and realized I would get 99 hp before slayer. So I stopped slaying (which I loved) and went back to skilling. Then I thought maybe I would get multiple 99 at once with all of the strange rocks. That was gonna take years. At one point I decided to just get 99 mining but when I got 98 I changed my mind. I love having untrimmed farm at my level 2367, I get so many comments from other players, but I miss doing slayer. Right now I have 7 skills at 98 that I could do all at once with strange rocks. Do you guys think I should just do it and get it over with or hold out longer?
