Welcome to the Tip.It Times. The Times address interesting and original issues, controversial topics and points of heated debate amongst the RuneScape community. Different types of articles published include the featured article, fictional stories, historic articles, and guest submitted articles. A new issue will be released on an approximate weekly basis, and a short extract of the latest featured article will be shown on the home page along with its title, date and authors name.

The Times are ran by the Editorial Staff who volunteer their time to provide the community with new articles on a weekly basis. The views expressed in these articles by the Editorial Staff do not necessarily represent those of Tip.It but those of the individual writers.

... that an Amulet of Glory with charges and wielded, also generates more Gems on Free to Play worlds when Mining? So if you are Mining on a site that is normally busy on P2P, realise that there is no difference in speed or amount of gems, no matter what world you mine on! (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that mining Gems while wearing a charged Amulet of Glory , significantly decreases the number of "hits" you need to get the Gem? Someone 10 levels higher without a Glory will lose the race with someone who HAS a charged Glory. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...the NPC contact spell on Lunar Magicks that lets you talk to the Larry the Penguin guy, lets you cash in penguin points as well. That means you can now level up wherever you want, without waiting for genies or books! (Thanks to Zombs!)

... that while teleblocked on a PvP world you can still use the portals in the Chaos Tunnels? Even Fairy Ring magic is still available to you. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that at Stealing Creation, one of the Mystics carries a special club to help you teleport out of the Wilderness? He will infact teleport you to your respawn point. So if you wish to be at Camelot, Falador, or Lumbridge, this Mystic can help. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that Summoning familiars like the Ibis and Granite Lobsters not only give invisible boosts to your Fishing level, but also produce enough raw fish to more than pay for the pouches? That means they make it faster to fish AND more profitable. (Thanks to Laikrob!)

... cutting materials to gain favour in your kingdom gives you .1xp?. (Thanks to Howlin1!)

... that you can use farming produce on the tools Leprechaun in order to note them? This produce includes grimy herbs, allotments, flowers, fruits and more! (Thanks Ddraiggoch06)

... that there are stepping stones across the River Lum from the Champions Guild to near Draynor Manor? You'll need 31 agility to use them. (Thanks Bramady)

... that you can wear the Lunar Isle "Seal of Passage" in the necklace slot instead of carrying it in your inventory? You don't even have to string it! (Thanks Sportguy)

... when stealing from stalls, clicking twice on a stall will allow you to steal the object even if spotted by a guard. (Thanks Dark_Spirus)

... that the experience for nurturing, cutting roots, chopping, and burning an Evil Tree increases depending on the tree's level?

... that pressing the 's' key while the game is loading will make your RuneScape to start in Safe mode. Safe mode runs the game at minimum graphics. (Thanks Master_Smither!)

... that it is possible to feed your Bunyip some Lava Eels? Fishing these is very fast xp (slightly better than Shilo river Lure fishing), and feeding them to your Bunyip gives you up to 11 Water Runes, the most sought after elemental rune. And with the ability to recharge your Summoning points nearby, you can stay in Taverly Dungeon for a long time. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that the Castle Wars Bracelet not only allows you to hit 20% higher on enemies that carry your team's flag, but also drastically increases the amount of hitpoints healed using a Bandage (50%!)? Just make sure you wear it at the start of each game, as the effects last the entire game wether you switch to other gloves or not. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that Dust Runes, an Air and Earth combination, are cheaper then just plain Earth Runes? These come in very handy for House Teleports that require 1 Law Rune and 1 Dust Rune. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that everything you need to repair the ladder for the Death Plateau Beacon from the All Fired Up minigame can be found in the ruins north of it? Planks, Hammers, Nails, and even a Steel Bar respawn right next to an Anvil for all your ladder repairing needs. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... if you click a farming crop on the in-game skill window, the required payment will show in your chat? (Thanks to Snefru0!)

... that the most wanted herb by far is the Snapdragon? Easily obtainable with just 10 Agility tickets in Brimhaven, and if you have completed Rocking Out, you don't even have to pay the entry fee. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that non-members can actually make good money in the Cooking Guild? Three Cooking Apples (worth more then 200gp each) spawn there, and all the ingredients to make Pie Shells (worth more then 350 gp) are available too, just make sure you sell them at the Grand Exchange, and do not accidentally make Apple Pies. It is also worth noting that you can make as much Flour (by grinding Grain) at the bottom of the Mill as you want before emptying it. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that there are three Strange Plant spawns slightly west of Brimhaven? If you are lucky to find one (they spawn only once every half an hour) you can stock up on energy boosters before running across the Karamjan Continent. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...you don't have to keep circus costumes in your bank? Just destroy them, and you can get them back from the Ringmaster any time you want them. (Thanks to pokemama!)

..even though the weapon speed scale runs from 0 to 10, there will never be a weapon with 10 weapon speed. Due to the way the time between strikes is calculated, a weapon with speed 10 would strike an infinite amount of times. (Thanks to Necromagus!)

...you can use the "Decant" option for Bob Barter south west of the Grand Exchange. He will automatically combine any potions that are lower than 4 with each other, giving you "*insert name of potion here* 4" and the vials left over. (Thanks to Big_Stingman!)

...you can rest and bank at the same, so that you can regain run energy and health whilst tending to your bank? (Thanks to Requiem1160!)

... that the total Kudos you can get is 173 (for now)? The latest additions have been "Glorious Memories" and "Defender of Varrock" ("Tale of the Muspah" did not add anything to the Museum, only to the Natural Historian's pile of information about the Mahjarrat). Talk to Minas on the first floor to give him the proper information, and recieve an Antique Lamp of 10k XP. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that you can continue to clean specimens, delivered from the Dig Site on the ground floor of the Varrock Museum? Most of what you find in the crate will be junk, but on a rare occasion you can find Antique lamps worth 500 XP. (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...that there is a lever in Edgeville that acts like the wilderness lever in Ardougne? While in a Bounty Hunter world, it teleports you to deep wilderness and from there, it can teleport you back to Edgeville. But while in any other world, it teleports you to deep wilderness and from there it can teleport you to the lever in Ardougne. (Thanks to Master_Smither!)

... that there are five Pineapple Plants on Karamja each yielding five Pineapples? You can note them at the Leprechaun just north of Brimhaven to bring near infinite Pineapples home. Incidently, you can also plant a Pineapple "Tree" Seed north of Brimhaven, but these Pineapples do not spawn as fast as the native ones.(Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...hitting a tormented demon at anytime with a Darklight will reset the counter for its fire shield even if the fire shield is not up. (Thanks to Dragonlordjl!)

...that the level 41 Scarabs from the quest Missing my Mummy count towards Scarabites for your slayer task? So if you have Scarabites and want a quick and easy slayer task, pay these a visit! (Thanks to kinggabe!)

... Ali the Snake Charmer, a resident of southern Pollniveach, doubles as a busker? If you sit within a 3x3 box of him, you'll get all of the same effects as sitting by a normal busker! (Thanks to Chickenman51!)

... the time in seconds for a rune ore to spawn is 1500 - 3/8 * #players(where #players is the number of players currently on the server). (Thanks to Master_Smither)

...that once you reach Rank 300 in Mobilising Armies, buy and wear a full set of Lord Marshal gear including an unlocked Ring of Charos, you can report the undercover H.A.M. agent and gain an additional THREE ranks. The Lord Marshal gear you bought can be sold back for equal Reward Credits that you bought it for (this goes for all MA clothing). (Thanks to The Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...That, while many people still believe so, using the Egg Launching Cannon in Barbarian Assault does NOT cost any points? The most costly is to let Penance Runners reach the exit and escape. Being the Defender is therefor the hardest job, and often teams have double Defenders in all but the last round. - Thanks Tal Shiar!

...that if you click the compass while playing, it refocuses the screen towards the north? (Thanks to Jimmy_jim)

...that the bull-roarer used in the Legends Quest really exists? In the Wonghibon tribe in New South Wales, Australia, a boy's entry into manhood is celebrated with a special naming ceremony. A boy would be given a completely new name to signify the change from boy to man, and during the naming ritual a special piece of wood, the bull-roarer, was whirled around to produce a loud humming noise. One of the boy's teeth would then be knocked out. Uninitiated were not allowed to witness this ceremony, under pain of death. (Thanks DwarfPope!)

... that the new level 200 Living Rock Patriarch has an amazing 100% drop? It includes 125 Blood runes, 8 noted uncut diamonds, 3 noted Runite ore, and the opportunity to mine Living minerals from the carcass. (Thanks to Necromagus!)

... That it usually only takes six consecutive attacks with, for example, a Dragon Dagger (p++) to poison someone or something? The target must of course be able to be poisoned, but the attacks don't even need to do any damage. After hours of testing we can confirm this with reasonable certainty. (Thanks to Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...that replacing just 5 regular bulbs with energy-saving (LED or CFL) ones will completely eliminate your carbon footprint from playing RuneScape? So long as those bulbs are used an equal amount of time as you have your computer on or less, your bulbs will save you as much energy as is needed to run everything to play RuneScape. Replacing 2 more might actually save you enough money over time to buy yourself Membership. Just remember to properly dispose of the CFL lamp, and not just throw it in the bin. (Thanks to Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... That armoured zombies, located under chaos altar in the wilderness, are a good source of planks (normal, oak and teak all noted). In addition they drop a significant amount of Blue charms. On top of that you do not need food. You can climb up the ladder, pray, go down again (without them becoming aggressive if you do it quick). BUT, beware that they do not all use melee, some use range so you will have to switch prayers properly. Notes: must have started Defender of Varrock and Salve amulet (e) is advised. (Thanks to Kolgan!)

... That your Quest Points determine the amount of time you can stay in Juna's Cave? Your total Quest Points equal the number of Tears you can catch (both good and bad) at the Tears of Guthix minigame. (Thanks to the Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that when talking to Uri during Treasure Trails, he is sometimes found saying ´I am the eggman; are you one of the eggmen?´ This is actually a reference to the song ´I am the walrus´, written in 1967 by the Beatles. (Special Thanks to DwarfPope)

...While the Crystal Bow and Shield have a requirement of 50 agility, the quest to obtain them has an agility requirement of 56. However, since spicy stews have a chance to boost agility six points, the quest can still be done at level 50. (Thanks to Necromagus!)

...that if you plant Nasturtiums in the flower patches and leave them there, you never have to worry about even watering your Watermelons? They will never get diseased, and the only reason to Supercompost them is to get an increased yield, thus more Farming experience. (Thanks to Darkdude98!)

...That you can store items in your Beast Of Burden by using the items on them? It does not work well with stacked items like Coins, Runes or Arrows, since only 1 of those will get stored... (Thanks to the Tal-Shiar Alliance!)

...with this weeks update, Jagex put an incomplete fairy ring into the Ancient Cavern? It is located near the waterfiends and requires 5 bittercap mushrooms (in-game they are called Mushrooms) and a spade. The Fairy code to it is BJQ. And with this fairy ring it means you can bring in a summoned monster now. Previously if you tried to jump off the dock into the whirlpool with a summoned monster you wouldn't be able to get into the Ancient Cavern. (Thanks to Howlin0001!)

...that you can close the bank screen by clicking on the run or prayer icon next to the minimap? This can be convenient once you get used to it, since it has a bigger clicking area than the tiny cross which you normally use to close your bank screen. It is also closer to your inventory, which can be handy while fletching, cleaning herbs, making pots, etc... (Thanks to Bedman!)

...that one of the biggest rewards from the Blood Runs Deep quest can be earned without even finishing the quest? The new shortcut to Dagannoth Kings makes it possible to solo these mighty beasts. Note: If you complete the quest, the shortcut is lost. (Thanks to the Tal Shiar Alliance!)

... that you cannot repair or bless the gravestones of JMods? If you try to, the message 'You needn't waste your prayer points on a Jagex Mod's gravestone!' appears. (Thanks to DwarfPope)

...that Concentrated Gold and Coal rocks can also collapse on themselves, without anyone mining at it? So do not be confused when you're unable to start mining if you are the only one in that dungeon... (Thanks to Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...that when making glass on lunar magicks, you don't need to burn the seaweed into soda ash first, you can use seaweed in your inventory as well, saving you a step in the glass making process. (Thanks to naominomble!)

...that passing a skill related blockage in the abyss gives a small 25 xp in that related skill? (Thanks to mckinzy5!)

... that if you have your varrock teleport setting for the G.E, that anyone using your house portal will also be teleported to the G.E.? (Thanks to joerlegacy!)

...that by making your farmed herbs into unfinished potions you can make more money than selling the herbs alone. (Thanks to Master_Smither!)

... That Fremennik Sea Boots 3 have exactly the same stats as Adamant Boots? This includes the +1 strength bonus. (Thanks to the Tal Shiar Alliance!)

...the quality of the incense burners doesn't affect the Prayer XP received from offering bones at a POH altar? Only the quality of the altar does. You don't need to buy those expensive marble burners! (Thanks to king_muumuu!)

...That you can store Sacred Clay Harpoons in the various Tackleboxes you get as a reward from Fish Flingers? You can proceed to take one out and morph it into anything you want, allowing you to bring a whole supply of Sacred Clay Pickaxes to the Living Rock Caverns (for example) in just one inventory space. (Thanks to Tal-Shiar Alliance!)

...the Penance Prayer-to-HP regeneration method works well for the Graveyard chamber of Magic Training Arena! Simply activate Redemption after your health falls below 200 and you have regained at least 3 Prayer Points. This will allow you to deposit all of the fruit you create and save your inventory spaces since you don't have to bring any form of healing with you! (Thanks to GaVaTi!)

...that you can get an extra 20 battlestaves from Baba Yaba along with the ones from Zaff's shop in Varrock at the same price in her rune/chicken shop. (Thanks to Mister Senty!)

that per day, you can only gain a maximum of 30,000 experience (in all skills) by assisting another player(s)! (Thanks to SerpentEye!)

that the Dell Monti located in Brimhaven gives out 40 noted Pineapples for free if you're wearing your Karamja Gloves? (Thanks to infam0us911)

(Thanks to Gradeskip93)

... that alchemy spells do not interrupt things like mining, woodcutting and fishing? (Thanks to Jaffy1)

... that if you go into the Smoke Dungeon or Pollinevach Slayer Dungeon without a face mask, the smoke will not kill you? It will continuously reduce you to 10 LP. This allows players without a Slayer helm to fight the Aberrant Spectres on the bottom floor of the dungeon, and is useful for players that want to use Dharok's armor. (Thanks to Hedgehog!) (Note, Tip.It is not responsible if you do die in the dungeon!)

… that if you store your lumberjack outfit in your PoH costume room (armour case) you can get a second set without having to drop the first? This would make for an easy (relatively speaking!) method to acquire two lumberjack sets (bank stacking, for example.) (Thanks to ScouterJW!)

... that once the Skeletal Horror loses both of its arms, it can no longer use magic attacks? (Thanks to Missingno!)

... That wielding a dwarven army axe allows you to light the incense burners in your Player Owned House chapel without a tinderbox in inventory. This frees up one more space for bones or ashes each trip. (Thanks to uath13!)

... that your run energy does not replenish while riding magic carpets. (Thanks to Wessan!)

... you can predict if a jadinko is going to get caught in your traps by simply hovering over the trap with the cursor? (Thanks to Aslan!)

... that you can predict whether or not some hunter traps will fail by watching the animations? For example, a box trap will darken if it succeeds in catching a chinchompa. Thanks to Missingno.

...that with the addition of the Dominion Tower and the new placement of the Desert Phoenix, collecting desert phoenix feathers for super anti-fire potions is not as much of a hassle at it used to be. All you have to do is cross west from the tower over the bridge and head slightly north into a crevice where the bird lies. Another bonus with the distance between the two being closer is that the phoenix is in a more constricted area to move around in than in the past. (Thanks to Armorare!)

that when you attempt to teleport using jewellery while in monkey form on Ape Atoll, you do not change back to a human until you arrive at your location? (thanks to Jaffy1!)

...that you can adjust your RuneScape graphics and audio settings while resting in-game? (Thanks to Jaffy1!)
