RuneScape Wiki Post – Issue #1: Decision-making
Written by: Doucher4000
There are many decisions you must make in RuneScape. These can be small, like whether to train Crafting or Fletching today, or major, like choosing to go after a level 99. It can often be challenging to make some decisions, especially if they are not reversible. Here are some tips to consider if you are in such situations:
- Consider the pros and cons of each option. Think about short and long term benefits. For example, buying a Dark bow for a single PK-ing trip might sound wasteful, but if you consider that you could use it again, it might not sound as such a bad idea after all. Doing some research about all options might help you decide. For example, if the said Dark bow is starting to fall rapidly in price – waiting a few days might save you a few thousands.
- Ask around. Ask some friends, on the forums, on Clan Chats, anywhere... Other people might provide you with different opinions. This will allow you to see your options in different perspectives – or maybe even provide you some options you never considered.
- Reconsider. Think about it. Is it worth it? Going over all the options, think about it in every way you can. Think again about the pros and cons, but this time more carefully. Is the high price really a setback? Will you use it often? Can you make that money back? Think about why you want it, and which option is more desirable.
- Do it! Once you have made up your mind, do not waver from your decision. Do not start considering all the "what if”s now. If it is what you want, go for it. Do not wait for too long – it might start rising, or there might be an update, etc.
