People are using rapiers for nex


Someone9339

Chaotic rapiers?


Paulcog

Yeah, people also getting 120 Dung


Throwaway47321

Mod arcane made some cryptic comments about their being a different gear set up for nex that is much more powerful than the current meta. A lot of people think it was the Raipier.


Frediey

man idm that sort of thing being said to much, if it is on twitter or something, as like a nudge a week later, but at that point, let us look at the stats of the boss, so we don't have to trial and error every weapon lmao


PFhelpmePlan

Let's be honest, you're not trial and erroring anything. The 20-hr a day streamers and no-lifers are and then once they find the correct combo you'll piggy back off their efforts.


DislocatedXanax

>you'll piggy back off their efforts. So will you lol. You pointing it out serves nothing but spreading toxicity.


PFhelpmePlan

>So will you lol. Of course. I'm not the one complaining about the trial and error aspect needed to find the correct setup though. That'd be like complaining that TOB hard mode needs a nerf without ever having attempted it and knowing damn well that I'm not going to attempt it, nerf or not.


wastecadet

Waaaaahhhh someone said something that I think is mean they must be ToXiC


Frediey

that doesn't make it good though does it? there was no real reason to hide the stats like they did


Prilosac

Way more fun to have the stats hidden and have people trying to figure stuff out than to just immediately know all the stats, plug it into our dps calculators, and know what the BiS setup is day 1


Frediey

i would agree, if it was a brand new boss, like, a week or two of them not giving ANY hints. but the fact that some mods have been telling clans in their discords hints etc is just not ok


Prilosac

Why? Because some small groups of people will be able to do it minorly more efficiently for at most a week or two? I dunno, that's just so inconsequential imo and more of just a fun little thing than something to complain about


Frediey

its not fun when other groups who are "friends" with a jmod get more information purely for being there friend, the same info that can be obtained from ingame spells which they don't let us use for the very same reason, they shouldn't tell anyone.


Prilosac

Eh, I really think you're overthinking this. Like you're right that maybe technically no hints at all should be given, but it's really just not something to care about imo. It's not like they had select groups using BiS day 1, vast majority were running around with tbows


Frediey

i disagree, purely based on the past with jmod interactions with select groups and clans etc. its not fair to the rest of the game if a clan gets info first about new content.


Dolormight

Nah they can just merch away on the mean time. It's bullshit, simple as.


Dolormight

Yeah but it wasn't even public. Someone just did a screen grab and shared it. Examine is unlocked next week. Scum move imo.


wildman1918

Wtf no scan week 1??? It should be available day 1 wtf is the point of the spell otherwise…


WRLD_

For when it's enabled... If it were permanently off for new bosses, I would agree. A few weeks of chaos where nobody's got the literal optimal setup calced is neat.


WRLD_

but he didn't *say* what the setup was that was better. It doesn't take a genius to figure what people are using week 1 is not optimal EDIT: also, he said in the Q&A that tbow isn't the best setup, too. not just a shot in the dark discord message


Thermald

trial and error every weapon lol you literally had to spend an hour hitting nex in a solo with like 5 different max weapons (rapier / scy / mace / tbow / zcb) and it would have been painfully obvious if you actually tracked how often you hit


Late_For_A_Good_Name

Bro that’s trial and error, why are you being pretentious


Thermald

because trial and error gameplay is fun


Late_For_A_Good_Name

Bro be honest, you weren’t trying to show that you like trial and error… you were trying to show that you have all the best weapons in the game, and the hard combat diary done. Soooo clevvver


Thermald

you literally could have come to the same conclusion using a dragon sword dragon scimitar dragon mage and rune crossbow


Late_For_A_Good_Name

You specifically said max weapons, but nice cover


Bass_Thumper

Thanks bro last time I didn't have a cover your mom gave me chlamydia.


A_Level_2

dude, it's endgame content half the people there have this stuff, im there with acb and hides and I stick out like a sore thumb


Late_For_A_Good_Name

Yeah I get that, I like the whole testing weapons thing, just not Thermald failing to flex


thinkplanexecute

He posted in a bunch of twitch chats as well, aka public so


JerryLZ

Y’all trippin cause he has a Audi now


habbahubba

Damn alching rapiers really is a bad idea


Braumazing

Idk man… pretty good 3mil for the low low price of 1 nat rune and 5 fire runes!


Super_Shotgun

Yeah it's actually a really good way to get 99 magic if you want to make some easy money doing it, but you need to gather all the rapiers yourself so it takes a while.


DuckyOwO

Also a huge pro gamer tip is use a fire staff or tome of fire and you save the fire runes!!!


LampIsFun

Get that bryo staff and load it up with nats, get that time of fire, now u save all inventory spaces!


DuckyOwO

"What if we used 100% of our brain" Holy.


AfroDizzyYak

Yes it’s very helpful to be able to bank every 28 instead of every 26 you alch


Bass_Thumper

You know you can actually take noted items and unnote them by using them on a banker right? Like you don't actually have to open the bank every 26 alchs dumb dumb. just use the notes on a banker every inventory.


Akwler_rs

You know you can just alch a noted item right?


LampIsFun

This thread is amazing lol I hope someone gets fooled


MemeWizowd

At least you dont pay the tax, fuck the government!


AncientWyvernShield

I sold mine 3 days ago because I wasn’t using it anymore. This is why you keep all BIS gear even if you don’t use it.


OSRS-Jared

Best way to play. My bank value shrinks and grows all the time, sometimes I "make" a lot or it "crashes", but I still have all the great gear I've unlocked over the years.


RobCarrotStapler

I sold tbow at 1b when I took a break and bought it back at 800m when I started playing again. It goes both ways.


Tilt_2Live

>This is why you keep all BIS gear even if you don’t use it. Instructions unclear, lost 1b on inquistors and harmonised orb


moosene

Used on stream by several people it’s basically the meta for nex now.


t0tezevadin

crossbow designed to be bis at the dedicated shield and crossbow boss still confirmed useless trash item


A_Lakers

Didn’t they just say that cbows would be strong but not BIS?


HailZamorak

the quote was somethin like "nex willbe weak to crossbows" and "shields will be important " this obviously leaves a lot of room for shes also weak to tbows and rapiers


GodlikeCat

A jmod literally said the other day on stream "We never said she'd be weak to crossbows", they're just playing with us


bushihao

I don’t think they’re playing with us I think they’re terribly uncoordinated as a team


xTExVandal

They actually never said it would be weak to crossbows, they said the Zbow will be the new BiS crossbow.


StopFindingMyUsernam

In the blog "Nex Rewards" it literally says: This item is best-in-slot Tier 80 Crossbow, and that’s especially exciting because Nex just happens to be vulnerable to Crossbows! So they said both


xTExVandal

Vulnerable means the ability to take damage from, I think people just jumped on a hype train


StopFindingMyUsernam

In general, yes but that definition cannot and should not be used in a game like this, as *almost* every single mob is then considered vulnerable to anything. Imagine if the devs released Callisto today and said "here's a staff, which is helpful because Callisto is vulnerable to magic!". Because despite Callisto having 900 magic defense, it's still technically vulnerable to magic by that definition. That's why in cases like these, vulnerable is used as a synonym to "weak to"


Bass_Thumper

shhh shh sh just let him pedant. It makes him feel smart and included in the conversation.


bushihao

This gave me a laugh


Lonely_Beer

The reality is that shields will never be important absent a specific mechanic that punishes the lack of shield, full stop. Tanking for less time will always be better than tanking with higher defense due how the mechanics of this game works.


uiam_

>This item is best-in-slot Tier 80 Crossbow, and that’s especially exciting because Nex just happens to be vulnerable to Crossbows! Just turns out she's vulnerable to other things too. Jagex got us again.


WastingEXP

"that’s especially exciting because Nex just happens to be vulnerable to Crossbows!" [https://secure.runescape.com/m=news/nex-rewards---updated?oldschool=1](https://secure.runescape.com/m=news/nex-rewards---updated?oldschool=1) I think someone then said this wasn't true on the Q&A but idk.


t0tezevadin

I don't know but how else will I get worked up over video game item balance without some hyperbole?


Ellezei

Gear discord: 13/01/2022 - Changed all shields to spectrals, it's noticably the best shield thanks to Nex draining ridiculous amounts of prayer + the mage def increasing her splash rate - No melee weapon additions, been extensively testing melee setups with every conceivable permutation of weapons/armour and nothing really comes close to competing with the simple zcb+tbow setup for kill speed and longevity. Rapier is fake news


moosene

Yep it was meta a day ago when I posted it for few hours it’s back to range now.


TechnicalRule4886

it up with nats, get that time of fire, now u save all inventory spaces!


Anon_fin_advisor

Yes; the peak or the buying opportunity


SilverLugia1992

I'm never gonna be able to afford one, am I?


Ellezei

It’ll drop back down when people realise it’s not actually that good. Gear discord: 13/01/2022 - No melee weapon additions, been extensively testing melee setups with every conceivable permutation of weapons/armour and nothing really comes close to competing with the simple zcb+tbow setup for kill speed and longevity. Rapier is fake news


Wrongemboy0

Seems really good at nex


lStrakle

Overrated at nex, it'll go back


ShinyPachirisu

Def not overrated, we're seeing TTK much lower with stab range stab crush hybrid set ups


Wrongemboy0

Not sure about that - it’s really strong imo


TAINTALIZERx

Found the guy who didn't know a rapier


Miseryyyyyyyy

He probably didn’t know ‘rr

lStrakle

It's not really fake news but yeah it isn't as good as people are acting like it is. Nex definitely does have a stab weakness


Jynu

I got my rapier for 197m so it better keep going!!


Zanthy1

Sorry to say but its already coming back down. Sitting around 120m now


ImHaydenKay

This guy doesn't watch daily fluctuations on high value items


sup_my_bwana

When tf did it get that high?


DafuqIsTheInternet

2-3 years ago?


sup_my_bwana

Oh.. well yeah. I assumed he meant it was more recent than that :P


Typical-Complex4611

What website is this to follow prices?


Hihi9190

osrs prices, it's made by the wiki team using runelite data. On all the wiki pages you can view "real time prices" and it takes you there.


CallidusNomine

prices.runescape.wiki


kickeast

Nex is weak based on the minion she absorbs I think so she’s weak to stab range slash and crush in that order for ancient phases


goochasaurus

Lol, couldn’t afford it last week, i still can’t afford it this week


12yrsnfat

GME ripping Sir this is runescape


Noksdoks

Damn thats nice to see, i was so sad that i bought my rapier at 120m and then it dropped to 100m when nex came, guess i made my money back


AFallingWall

I bought at 100m, so this is epic


Noksdoks

Yeah i sold mine for 123m, now just going to wait for leags to start and get it back for 100m

newquestidewa

Smh how unlucky that you didnt have crystal ball to know that they will go up in price


[deleted]

[удалено]


Kapin3n

If you get tipped something like that then you for sure should buy, because there should be no reason for the item price to drastically drop. But who am I to say. I play in the small leagues.


[deleted]

yoyokeepitup

“I’m not even actually playing the game rn” “sigh…. I should’ve bought one when it was 100m hours ago”


cheekyvegthrowaway

So you couldnt buy one even if you wanted to. Thanks for letting us know.


t0tezevadin

can you tip me off too if you get a hint


newquestidewa

Which is irrelevant to this price rise, its because ppl are using rapier at nex


[deleted]

[удалено]


GeneraIDisarray

Wait so you got a tip that it would go up in price, but not because of Nex, which is the reason for it now. Why would it go up otherwise?


[deleted]

[удалено]


tries2benice

Well, you might *feel* like you're inside trading, lol, but nobody told you, "hey this is going to bis for a new boss."


[deleted]

[удалено]


tries2benice

Okay, but, you said you got tipped off that theyd be going up in price. There are two things that could mean, but, it seems like you're inferring someone told you the rapier would randomly be amazing somewhere. Instead, it's probably the other reason it's going up, which is that it litterally just crashed almost a quarter of its value. That's not really a tip-off, that's obvious market fluctuation that always happens after a major, 20% crash. People on osrs want to seem like financial wizards for pointing out this obvious.


Spam250

You just said you dont play the game and haven't had membership for half a year... how have you been eyeing buying one in those circumstances


13_faces

Because I have the GE tracker app? It's not a difficult concept to understand but I guess it is for smooth brains on this thread


Spam250

The difficult concept is believing somebody would use an app to track price volatility of items on a game they dont play and haven't had membership on for half a year.


SweatyMudFlaps

I sold my alts rapier to afford zcb because it was supposed to be bis


dxsgraced

If it does make you feel any better I paid 200m however long ago


13_faces

That's rough, 200m is probably my whole bank total right now lol


artificialdude

My cashstack was at 80m been wanting to get a rapier for a while now this happens lmao


iluvdankmemes

I was saving for a spectral for cerb when it was 50-55m, took a small break, came back before nex and it was at 100.


[deleted]

[удалено]


GeneraIDisarray

I got mine 101 last week, and saw the price this morning on my farm runs. Sold it for 130. Hopefully it goes back down though :D


Bwd6541

Should I hold onto the rapier? Got mine a few weeks back at 102m.


BrianFrobey

Sell now and rebuy when it's 20m cheaper


Bongnipotent

Probably not


Wrongemboy0

HODL


nlkippeh

Only weak hands sell! HODL!


biddleswarth

Spike over mod hinting that it's better dps for nex. Just going to climb back down to its original floor when specs are done taking advantage of buyers.


xnxxLLama

Bis is Fire surge I thought we’ve been over this


GucciRifle

Why wouldnt scythe be better on Nex then rapier?


SoraODxoKlink

Stab =/= slash


A_Level_2

tbow is just so chill. I don't think there's one set meta, just like how people say range is best DPS at bandos but in reality melee is overall much better for teams and a more common setup
