Question from Duke Juker

Dear Hosts,

I'm doing some farming now and just reached level 45. What should I be growing? Currently, I do spirit weed and willow trees and nothing else.

Also, what are the best money making methods you have used?

Lastly, what is your favorite city/town in RS?

Question from MageGuy08

Dear Shane,

Who would this important mystery person be? As for everyone else, do you think Runescape is still worth paying for? Why or why not?



Question from Lord Rickles

Dear Lovely Hosts,

We all know that Jagex is currently working on further bot preventive measures within the game. However, if any other "nukes" are precedent, these will also be cracked eventually. Why go through all this trouble to write code that slows the game down when they have access to player information? They have the ability to track trades, view banks, and monitor level gains, so why not simply come up with an algorithm that checks accounts for classic signs of gold farming, and ban those that fail to filter out? They have all this data being stored, why don't they use it? The way they are going about this seems so backwards and futile.

They clearly have the ability, as they recently used this data to ban those bug abusing the money pouch glitch as stated in a news post. Why not automate it and let the ban hammer fly? Perhaps you three can provide some insight.

Thanks from your loyal listener,

Lord Rickles

Question from PoisonNova

Dear Hosts,

I will be getting 85 mining later today. Where are the best places to mine runite ore?

Thanks, PoisonNova

Question from Flash

Dear Hosts,

Is the Dragon Pickaxe worth the money, or is the advantage over the Rune Pickaxe too small to make a big enough difference?
