Failed update and check out some of the riot vids at world 66 on youtube.... you guys think this vid is real? (warning bad language) ; it shows how the update was actually leaked >.> 01:56, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

Most retarded update ever.

I can't wait to see if and how this is dealt with, or if no action is taken, the effect it will have on the games economy.

Agreed, I literally baaawwweeddd at my computer when I saw the current price. -- Rune crossbow Saphrone08 Talk Ranged cape (t) 13:48, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

It surprises me really that it takes so much time before they do something about it... 14:37, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Updated article w/ no rollback confirmation from Mod Mark... link Recent climbing boots change --Shcboomer 15:40, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Can't believe they did this. And as usual, I didn't have one single pair of climbing boots. Damn. Satka 18:20, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Absolutely bloody ridiculous update. The forums are overrun with people demanding rollbacks, including myself. I'm also not going to renew my membership next week- I effectively quit over this colossal screwup. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:03, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

This update has pretty much signified the end of RuneScape as we know it, massive inflation is occurring as we speak. Prices of every single item will rise, because anybody can buy these boots for 12 GP each and alch them for 45k, making a couple mill in an hour. Fuck you Jagex. Fruit.Smoothie 21:54, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Fruit.Smoothie you are such a retard, get your facts right before posting. lol. But i do share your resentment against jagex about this update.

You are mistaken.. The boots that alch for 45k cost 75k in the shop. When speaking to the NPC, he will offer to sell you the new boots, which cost 12 coins and lack the bonuses of their old-style counterparts. If you refuse, he'll offer to sell you the new boots for 75k, which is the current ge value. Hope this clears that up. -Just A Gamer

Correct. The problem is that some people had loads of climbing boots that got turned into rock climbing boots. With an alch value of 45k, these players were basically handed an unbelievable amount of money. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 23:18, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

XD as luck would have it i just sold about 1000 climbing boots i had in my bank for a few hundred gp each ( i had them cus i wear them everywhere, especially to dangerous places). i think JaGex might actually have been Trying to piss people off with this one. All well, at least i got a few laughs out of it. And while everyone else is thinking of how they lost or how life is unfair, im trying to make money out of this inflation (and so should everyone else)- [Pharos] 06:50, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

What irritates me is the arrogance that Jagex projects with almost every update they install. Every single time a batch of "improvements" comes out, one ALWAYS angers the RuneScape populace. Instead of posting something on the forums and asking for an opinion beforehand (so that their holy grail that is the 'silent majority' can have all the reason and means to support an idea), they just make a radical change, fill the forums up with spams, rants, and good advice that all get marked as "troll threads", and then make a few small changes to give their supporters the audacity to call the dissenters spoiled. Of course, some times they even make up their own evidence supporting the update, reject all reasonable facts and ideas, and blatently lie, claiming to know "what many players have suggested". As a whole, it makes it very hard for me to accept any of Jagex's statements and forces me to distrust them. Wrathanet talk edits Guthix mjolnir 01:25, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


I realize that a lot of people are upset about this, but let's talk wiki.

Should this page be split into Rock climbing boots and Climbing boots? It says that you can get a pair that doesn't have the strength bonuses, for 12 gp. Right now, "Climbing boots" redirects to this page. Let's split, mmkay? ʞooɔ 19:20, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Fine by me. We probably ought to try to avoid confusion. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:50, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
I've split the page into 2 articles. Cleaning up the referenced between the two would be appreciated. --Dungeoneering-icon Deathslayer Fishing-icon 22:07, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Splitting looks right to me, maybe we should link in the riot to the riot page here as well: --Shcboomer 23:45, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Spiked boots

The Rock climbing boots can't be changed into the spiked boots anymore. Looks like the cheapo ones you can still buy from Tenzing can still be converted though. I guess this is something to do with the new price on the Rock climbing boots as you can't convert the spiked boots back again.

Not that you'd want to, spiked boots cannot be equipped outside of the ice path. Coelacanth0794 14:21, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

We have a fix for some!

A player made solution to the inflation has been created & is spreading around twitter. The general idea is that if we all drop 45k (the high alchemy value) we can remove some of if not all of the inflation.

A player with the twitter account nerbne seems to have started this movement.

Sorry, but why would we drop our money? That kind of defeats the purpose, because most people who are mad about inflation are so because of personal reasons. It's unlikely you'll see them dropping money. ʞooɔ 06:28, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
Because it is the opposite of inflation money came into the game causing the inflation if we take money out of the game some of that inflation goes with it.
You don't have to & certainlly won't if it's only for personal reasons. It would be a selfless act for the better of the economy & game rather then something personal.
The more participants we get the bigger the effect though & it has been suggested as 45k gp not much of a lose for each of us for some good & to undo some of the damage caused by the update. 06:17, June 29, 2010 (UTC)nthd' 06:17, June 29, 2010 (UTC)'
I have a better idea! How about, everyone gives me 45k, and then i promise not to spend it? It will have around the same affect, the same amount of people will want to do it and everyone (except me) is still 45k poorer! - [Pharos] 11:32, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

The economy has barely been affected....--Joel amos Talk Contribs 14:47, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Significant amount?

The page says the update added a significant amount of coins to the game. Afaik the last couple of days CTI has been degrading and the many pictures have either been admitted fake, or simply never been proven. This leads me to the next part, where the page claims that some players had thousands or more of the boots. I'm not sure what "thousands or more" is supposed to mean, but the highest confirmed amount is 1,8k. IMO it's heavily implied that several people had more of these, but again, the pictures have never been proven and should not be given the benefit of the doubt.

I would change this, but it seems new accounts can't. Ok, I changed and deleted a few sentences I thought weren't NPOV. There's a few more questionable, but I'll leave it as it is now. Cyanr 15:06, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Cyanr, you have no reason to remove what was being said here. You are allowed to use points of view on a talk page, NPOV applies to articles.

I removed the fake 300k image, as it really have no place on a wikipedia Cyanr 01:48, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
