Animations[edit source]

Hey cteng, I am going through and making animations for all the jobs and fighting the dragon so no need to take time to do it yourself. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 23:45, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I am trying to keep it to a maximum of 3 animations for this page to avoid slow loading on slower computers. I have placed the ones I think should be there and adequately spaced them. If someone doesnt like my combination or wants to expiriment, here are all the animations I took:
  1. Image:Sir_vant.gif
  2. Image:Sirvantfightsdragon.gif
  3. Image:Playercatchescrayfish.gif
  4. Image:Newbmining.gif
  5. Image:Newbbhammer2.gif
  6. Image:Makingfire.gif
  7. Image:Sirvantdancing.gif
  8. Image:Mewnarrpws.gif
  9. Image:Windstrikenewbisland.gif
  10. Image:assistingsirvant.gif


Making animations is fun, but I must say sorry for any unpleasantness caused by the following, but I am really addressing my opinion.
"Image:Sir_vant.gif" is not necessary, since there is not directly meaning anything.
"Image:Sirvantfightsdragon.gif", this one is from the cutscene which the Chaos Druid joins in the battle. If I am the reader, I would have a question of "where does the water wave comes from"?
"Image:Newbmining.gif" - Does it crash with Image:Runescape skills mining-updated.gif ? Could be added into the article.
"Image:Newbbhammer2.gif" - Can also be used in Smithing if the person in the animation hits the anvil twice, which is the factual case in the game.
"Image:Makingfire.gif" - This one is good and should be added in the article. (Some large articles like "Magic" loaded at least three animations!)
"Image:Sirvantdancing.gif" - This one should be added into the article at the bottom.
"Image:Windstrikenewbisland.gif" - This one is good if it is taken with the dummies, which are being hit.
I have also edited the three animations that haven't been mentioned above to make them more natural. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 14:25, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Old skoolers[edit source]

People that started Runescape BEFORE tutorial island also see the old tut island description when you click "learning the ropes". Is this relevant to the article? --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 08:04, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Yes, because it is the different version of Learning the Ropes. Just look at the quest journal. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

What should this be written?[edit source]

As everyone knows, the Tutorial Island is trashed in its introducing function, so , to replace it, should we write a new guide with the content like this article?

This article seems to be a quest guide rather than something like the premised. XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 14:38, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Learning the Ropes is a quest. It's on the quest journal. It rewards you with quest points. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:48, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Out of date[edit source]

I think this quest is out of date however the tutorial island is back. Australia serv.svgJapol1Australia serv.svg Talk | Sign Here 03:00, 4 october 2008 (UTC)

We're keeping this for reference. It's not out of date, it's been "superseded".   az talk   03:06, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Tutorial Island[edit source]

Isn't this also called Learning the Ropes now? Actually, It's called Unstable Foundations, if you look in the Quest List. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:59, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

O it is! I am one of those who actually did this quest. Qazwsx753421 08:25, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
