Of xTreme Improv

I've run some tests with Irene. The Godsword cost me 20.1 million, it might as well be versatile.

Test 1: Cutting small things.

I started off with a watermelon, diamond, pineapple, orange and cabbage. My theory is that the Bandos Godsword's special attack should be able to effortlessly tear through these ingredients for my stew. The diamond ? Oh, sliced diamond adds texture to any meal.

I dug up some interesting uses for the Godsword.

So I made the cut. I needed a target before using my special attack so a nearby spider kindly err...volunteered.

Quite fun, once done, I brushed the spider's smoking carcass away and examined the results of my experiment and whether I would be required to order takeout tonight.


Orange - Sliced and diced, devoid of dangerous contaminants. Success!
Watermelon - Neatly carved into 3 equal parts. Success!
Pineapple - Diced, not what I was hoping for. Failure.
Diamond - Turned to flour. At least it looks like flour. Don't breathe this. Failure.
Cabbage - What cabbage?

Fruit salad at best.

Test 2: Slightly larger and smellier things.

The remains of my previous experiment were only enough for a fruit salad so I needed some actual food.

Sushi time.

I took the liberty of preparing a shark, tuna and swordfish for diner. Gutted them and all that. My theory is that the shockwaves from Godsword Special Attack + Piety would neatly slice up these fish.

The spider's wife kindly volunteered for the next test.

I examined ground zero and found nothing.


Shark - Vanished
Swordfish - Vanished
Tuna - Vanished

Utter failure. I also cracked some tiles. At least the spider family doesn't have to cremate the family member this time.

Test 3: Hot beverages.

I dig mah tea, yo! As a player originating from a country which has had some British influence over the past 100 years, I am required by law to enjoy tea.

I got some water, and planned to boil it with my Godsword. The tea leaves are just there for a size reference.

Some nearby goon assaulted and murdered my test subject, a nephew. So I got the uncle over here. *shwing*

Inconcievable! The massive heat and pressure has warped the carbon structure of the bucket into a bowl! Oh, and the water was boiled.



In conclusion, the abilities of the Godsword are endless. Warping things, making things vanish, cool effects and making tea. It's a warrior's dream!

I'm gonna have to order pizza. Fruit salad and tea are not enough to satisfy my hunger.

Mebbe I should try slicing pizza with my Godsword!

Of Godswords and Their Strengths

I've finally been drawn into this Godsword craze. I can see why it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Allow me to elaborate.

It's great for cutting zombies.

It's great for cutting moles.

It's great for trimming weeds and spiders AT THE SAME TIME!

It has all the attack styles so you can cut in different ways !

This sword is really good at cutting things ! And life in general. If the cows complain about their status, begin cutting ! If General Graardor gives you a funny look, make his knees regret the day they were born ! If you need to perform a tonsillectomy, use the Armadyl Godsword special !

Of a Triumph

I'd like to dedicate this poem to Irene, my sweet, my love, my Godsword.

You changed my world with a blink of an eye
That is something that I cannot deny
You put my soul from worst to best
That is why I treasure you my dearest Irene.

You just don't know what you have done for me
You even pushed me to the best that I can be
You really are an angel sent from above
To take care of me and shower with love.

The market crashed and all that and I gave in and bought the sword weeks before it hit it's all time low. I coulda gotten it for a few million less but I caved. Her luscious curves, her gleaming spirit and her awesome destructive power called to me.

So yeah. I need mebbe 4 million 'til I can get my Whip, Amulet of Fury and Dragon Sq shield back. But the drop in prices will do well to aid this.

Check the chatbox.

Fun fact: If I had 99 Strength, all possible Strength boosts barring a Salve Amulet or Black Mask, I have just enough of a maximum hit with an Armadyl Godsword special attack to kill myself in one hit.

Of Samus' Reserves

They hype from Mobilsing Armies has died down enough for me to enjoy a game on a Mobilising Armies world, I got my Serjeant rank and now I need the Commander's clothes 'fore I stop and get back to the usual.

Also, Mod Nexus stopped by at Mobilising Armies after the update and said something about a solution to the 26k trick.

Of the Piranha Gambit

I had an argument with myself today and we had to end our friendship.

Check the picture for details*.

*Details may not be pretty

Of the Things that Don't Grow on Trees

I love this minigame ! It's awesome ! I'm awesome !

The Notes function is real nice, I loves it.

Also, I got a buncha levels and got rich, too ! 13 million coins. If I don't get a Visage drop, I'm buying the damned shield.

And that song Waiting for Battle in Mobilising Armies is epic.

Too bad when I put that song on a loop, it stops playing for 5 minutes and then randomly starts again.

Of the Sounds of RuneScape

I always play with sound on in the game though I frequent areas of the game with generic music. As I type this, I'm looking through the list of tracks and playing the ones that sound interesting.

I found that the vast majority of tracks suit a certain mindset. These hundreds of tracks are rarely listened to by us, most are supremely well composed. We players are a fickle bunch, we don't truly care about the hours of work the audio teams at JaGex put into their songs and move on with our own choices, I acknowledge that we should listen to what we want to but there exist 599 tracks for a reason.

Many of these tracks are only ever used once, during some obscure quest or in the far north-east corner of the Wilderness. If only JaGex would update their tracks and add some sort of playlist options, a list of favourites and such. There is an empty space for button on the bottom left in smallscreen mode, might as well fill it up.

I'm also posting my favourite tracks.

Fruits de Mer
Scape Summon
Dogs of War
The Mentor
Corporal Punishment

Of Literary Abandonment

Sweet mama Peru ! According to this Developer Log, posted on 26th of June, Mobilising Armies will be with us in a few weeks.

Only 7 months overdue.

I've been anticipating this moment for months. My computer's cooling went wonky and had to replace a fan.

I also love Fishing, made over 2 million off sharks so far. It's far more soothing than Woodcutting.

In other news, I can hit 10 million coins within an hour. Fishing and all that.

Also, the Dragon Longsword kicks the Dragon Scimitar's ass. When on Aggressive mode, I hit just as hard as a whip, it's special kicks in 4 times per bar, hits often and harder. All of it's stats are superior to a Scimitar of the same and includes an option to stab.

Also, the Longsword is cheaper. 50% so.

It's just a little slow.
