New Calculators[edit | edit source]

  • Player owned ports voyage calculator
  • Inverse level calculators (have x items, how much xp/levels is that)
  • Base camp materials calculator
  • PoF breading chances
  • Dps based on rotation, equipment, perks etc

From 2019 Survey[edit | edit source]

  • "Calculators could also be a lot more user-friendly with buttons for selecting which bonuses you're using (similar to runehq) instead of dropdowns and typing numbers (3)
  • Add Player-Owned Ports Voyage calculator (2)
  • Would be far quicker to navigate with a fixed width or a maximum stretch - on widescreen displays they can be difficult to use as the stretched sections make it hard to see what's what, with the labels offset to the left and the dropdown icons way to the right.
  • Calculators could do with being more user-friendly; there are too many to list them on the same page in this manner.

  • Some calculators have a lot of options. It would be nice if those options link to wiki articles describing the option or where it comes from
  • Skill calculators ability to fetch user details is inconsistent
  • I don't think the calculators are well done. Take a look at lunagang.nl, they have amazing calculators that are easy to use
  • Out dated (4): Missing bonus XP and boost options, portables, pulse cores. Fletching calculator doesn't include bows. Smithing lacks calculators for # bars needed in different scenarios.
  • Too many calculators based on gp cost efficiency, this is rarely useful for ironman and doesnt give the base data.
  • The invention calculators (and maybe other calculators) need ways to adjust item prices on something other than their GE prices because none of the cheapest items are actually possible to buy for their listed prices.
  • Most calculators for item disassembly don't include untradeable items, when they form a large portion of all items disassembled for components.
  • Don't show how much time it will take til level
  • Don't show bundle (combined skilling methods?) skills like gem tip mining
  • needs calculators for "" i have these materials to use. what lvl will i be after?"" like tip.it skill planners. if they exist, well, make them easier to find, because i couldnt
  • Add Barrows droprate calculator
  • Add POF calculator
  • Add calculator for Shark Soups in the Arc
  • Add damage calculator for legacy mode
  • Invention component cost calculator/table is slow to load, especially on mobile
