Top 5 things to know when buying RS gold


If you have decided to buy Runescape gold, this article will provide you with the best knowledge on the web. Consider this something between a buyer’s advice and a market overview, so by reading these 5 facts and tips, any Runescape player can return to their usual errands much smarter and better prepared to buy GP.


  1. Don’t trust sketchy miracle deals no matter what

There comes a time in any player’s life when he or she thinks: “Dang, I need more gold, current amounts just don’t cut it…”. What do those people do? They choose to buy RS3 or OSRS gp from someone willing to sell. This is a great way to keep an active community of players, but it also carries some danger because not all people are not out here to do good things, to say the least… Scammers, fraudsters and dishonest people look to benefit from your needs and look to profit with real-world cash. These deals usually offer extremely low rates, have 0 feedback or come from recently created sites. However, it is not possible to describe every possible deal but in short – if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Stay safe from sketchy or unknown sites as much as possible and never give them your account info. NEVER!


  1. Look for an SSL certificate, feedback and verified payment methods

If you decide to arrange a purchase online, from a specific and RS gold trade-oriented site, look for the SSL certificate badge near the address tab. If you don’t know what it is – here is a helpful guide. This badge is the first sign that you are on a right track. Next, look whether the OSRS GP or RS3 gold seller has any feedback, this is usually displayed to increase trust and show reliability. If it is a lot of input and it seems authentic or better yet – links to real feedback on Facebook, Twitter or else are given – the green light is almost lit. The final step should be analysing the available authenticated payment methods. If there are at least more than a few – you can proceed further.


  1. ID verification – only in rare cases

Now think about this when you buy a Runescape membership directly, do they require ID verification? Nope. That should not be required when purchasing gold also. However, there are requirements for sellers to receive some identification (mostly on PayPal) to get a proof that the purchase is not being made from a stolen account. Of course, ID verification is good for safety and all but believe that it should not be compulsory.


  1. Hidden fees

Once you open a OSRS GP or RS3 GP selling site, the first thing that catches your eye is usually the prices. However, the listed price does not always indicate how much you will pay. Hidden fees mean additional price jumps after the checkout has begun. These might include processing fees, delivery fees, … Read More...

All About Runescape Catfish


All About Runescape Catfish

Raw catfish can be caught in the Port District of Menaphos, Runescape and requires a Fishing level of 60. It will award 85 Fishing experience as well as 4.5 reputation points to the faction the player currently has set as active. Your rod will gain 10 experience upon catching one. Simply use bait instead of lures in the fishing spot to successfully catch one. Other fish that are able to be caught in the same spot are Beltfish and Desert Soles. By virtue of Menaphos being a members-only world, only members can get to this spot to fish.

The raw version of the fish can be disassembled for mostly organic parts with living components, healthy components, or rarely enhancing components, as well as crafted parts at times. Disassembling rewards 1.8 experience with a base junk chance of 34{7415ff5170253e049481658879a8dbc0ef4f928b5f06930499c649d371d84481} (variable depending on your junk chance reduction). What can you do with this catfish? Well, you can either sell it, cook it, or cook and then sell it.


Cooking Catfish

A cooking skill level of 80 is required in order to cook catfish. It can be cooked in a range or on a fire for one serving. It will reward 145 experience on a successful attempt. Consuming a cooked catfish will restore the player’s life points up to 1,500 depending on their Constitution level. At the lowest, it will restore around 225 life points. For maximum effect, a Constitution level of 60 is required.


Selling Catfish

Both cooked and raw catfish have the same base value of 275 RuneScape Gold coins. As calculations for an item’s High Alch and Low Alch use that value, both cooked and raw have the same outputs there as well. Using the skill will reward you with 165 coins for High Alch, and 110 coins for Low.

As for the Grand Exchange, the raw catfish’s average price is (at the time of writing) at 95 gold coins, with a 30-day average of 98 coins. The cooked version of the fish is sold a bit lower at 84, with a 30-day average of 82. Raw fish is a little more expensive because of those players who want to level their cooking. By those criteria, it is not quite worth it to catch and/or cook them to sell.


Leveling by Catfish

As for leveling Fishing or Cooking, it is not very efficient. You will need to fish or cook around 90,000-100,000 times just to get to 99 as soon as catching or cooking catfish becomes available. Even more would have to be done for those who want to reach 120 with just this action (which is impractical and inefficient anyway).

It is up to you to level up your skills however you want. Just remember to have fun while doing it. If you are at a loss as to what the fastest or most efficient ways (ones that also turn in a profit) are, check out leveling guides on the wiki. … Read More...
