Question from Ka Pai

Welcome back Shane, I hope you had a good time away!

I'm at the age where my friends are going off to parties and drinking, personally I don't really want to get really drunk and do stupid things (one of my friends shaved his head at a party). Usually when my 'friends' go to parties I stay home and play runescape. They give me a hard time for actually playing rs because of their perception of what runescape used to be. They also give me a hard time for playing rs while they are getting drunk.

Is there anything wrong with staying home on weekends and playing runescape instead of going to parties?

Do people in your reals life's think that you’re weird for playing rs because of what it used to be?

By the way my friends are 15/16 so it is under age drinking, please shed some light on this question

Thank you and bring uncle dano on as a co host more often!!!

Question from 1 Stone Pwn

Greetings hosting individuals!

A quick question regarding skills. Do you believe that every skill should have choices when it comes to focus, time, and investment? As an example, I'll use training combat. It's possible to train very efficiently if you pay a lot of attention somewhere like Dagannoth Sentinels, you can train somewhere like Armored Zombies where you can basically take a nap, or you could train with something like Slayer that's slower and requires attention, but makes a decent amount of money (or a smaller loss in buyable skills). There are a lot of skills that have one or two of these choices, but very few that offer all three. Jagex does seem to be moving in the direction of offering more choices with the release of things like the Runespan and Bonfires. If you like this idea, what else would you add? If not, why not?

Question from PoisonNova

Howdy Hosts,

Why do you think so many players seem to hate the farming skill?

And Trekkie, which training method did you use for 99 crafting?

Question from Flash

Dear hosts,

I have a couple of questions relating to Farming. My Farming level is 79, but my herbs seem to be dieing pretty often (I plant Snapdragons if that makes any difference). I use supercompost too. Every run or two I get dead herbs, sometimes multiple herbs die in one run. My questions are, is there any way to increase the survival rate besides using supercompost, and does the chance of death decrease if you have a higher farming level?
