Twisted Bow

Recommended Posts

Osrs needs rares.

The gp inflation rate is out of control.

When that bubble bursts due to (either/and/all):

A. There being a new BIS.
B. The merchers who've been buying up the trade volume sell.

C. The unrestricted nature of osrs markets (people panic selling/buying).



Its going to make history.

Personal opinion: 

Due to the integrity changes making it so you cant stake items vs items anymore, its let merchers dominate the market since there isn't the uncertainty of a staker who wins a lot of an item dumping on the market. This combined with the fact that gp has to be used to buy items from duel arena winnings has shifted the item market to reflect the actual inflation rate of gp. Hence the sharp decrease in trade volume after Raids 2 (twisted bow is still a BIS) and the continued drop (game integrity changes). 


When it comes to inflation:

-Add in rares, so theres an item that actually reflects the rate of inflation in the economy.
-Add in MAJOR costs/gold sinks to anything new coming to the game henceforth so theres a cost/benefit to doing pvming/bossing just like there was back in the day before they changed the death mechanics. 

Makes me sad to see that were headed at full speed right down the same road that RS3 did. 

P.S. Ofc that rollback scare (July) had an impact, however this trend goes all the way back to June 6th.

Some good educational resources (FACTUAL) based off of the data that Jagex provided during the 2017 data stream.




Keep in mind that the information there is quite old now (AKA the margin of error when trying to extrapolate to today is quite high), however the rate at which items comes in the game increases over time due to players becoming more efficient at the new content.
