Herblore is a member’s only skill centered on herbs and the brewing of potions. As of this year, OSRS has around 47 different potions, all with different effects. At level 99, players are veritable masters of potion-making, and here’s how to reach that title. Eighty-seven attack potions will raise your Herblore from 3 to 15. Mix a guam leaf and eye of newt in a vial of water for 25 experience per potion. The method is likely to result in loss of gold but will take only about two minutes. At level 15, you may want to start making a hundred and twenty-seven strength potions. It will bring your level up to 26 and might take around five minutes. Each potion requires a vial of water, tarromin, and limpwurt root, and will give 50 experience. Alternatively, you may buy unfinished potions in the GE, which is faster and more convenient. However, this is expensive, so if you’re short on gold, be content with the vials of water. After making all those strength … [Read more...] about 5 Best Tips to Train Your Herblore Skill in Old School Runescape

Since my head is stuck in MMO news, gaming, and discussion for a part of my day, I have been known to conjure up hypotheticals to keep me amused. After all, the news is often so weird and unexpected that my daydreams might one day happen — you never know! One of those I’ve been pondering lately is what would happen, exactly, if a studio brought back online a rather popular long-deceased MMORPG. Say, City of Heroes or Star Wars Galaxies. Just out of the blue, “Hey guys, we’ll be reactivating the game next week, officially. See you then!” While those two titles are almost certainly forever lost to us, it’s not the craziest of questions. We have seen dead MMOs revived (such as Asheron’s Call 2 coming back for a short run, or Shadowbane in other territories, or Hellgate: London). It all depends on whether the code is still out there, the servers capable, and the studio willing. Plus IP issues and all that. Anyway, it’s feasible, it’s … [Read more...] about If we could bring MMOs back to life, what would it be like?
Support Massively OP on PatreonWere you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review! There are hardly any proper MMORPGs that haven’t already seen at least one major business model shift over the years, and this week Star Trek Online announced its second: It’s going even more free-to-play, or maybe more buy-to-play, depending on how you look at it, as it’s trading its optional subscription away for an optional flat-fee buy-in. Meanwhile, we’re looking ahead to Guild Wars 2’s underwater update, watching players quibble over Elder Scrolls Online’s and Star Citizen’s business models, debating the state of modern MMO raiding, genuinely enjoying SWTOR’s latest update, being surprised that WoW’s doing so well, and mourning the impending loss of two PWE MMORPGs. Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions. THIS … [Read more...] about MMO Week in Review: Star Trek Online is going free-to-play, again (May 6, 2018)
Those of you who play RuneScape or World of Warcraft are likely well acquainted with a popular phishing technique that made its rounds over the past few years, or at least you would be if you took a gander through your spam filter. The email warns players that they’ve been caught either botting or engaging in real money trading, and that further cheating will add them to a list of John Does in a pending lawsuit. While the email links to a fake login page designed to steal your account information, you might be surprised to know that the body of the email itself is indeed legitimate, or I should say was originally written by a legitimate source. Jagex once filed lawsuit against cheaters, and it didn’t end in their favor. No, seriously. I reported on this way back when it initially happened, getting confirmation from Jagex and from the central district court of California where the lawsuit was filed. The email cites both a valid case file and … [Read more...] about In Plain English: The Curious Case Of Jagex V John Doe
It has become a long-standing tradition as Massively OP and our former site that we like to end the year by creating a list of titles that we anticipate for the coming one. It has always been a devilish list to create, full of loose dates and fast guesswork about which titles will and won’t be releasing during a 12-month window (just read last year’s list to see how spot-on I was). This year we’re changing things up a bit by tossing out the qualifying factor of “will see a hard launch in 2018.” Instead, I drafted up a list of 20 MMOs that have the potential to do or be really interesting next year, whether that be a launch, a long-anticipated beta test, or some other significant development. Plus, hey, you get 20 for the price of 10, so no complaining now! As an aside, this list isn’t going to cover some other exciting-looking multiplayer games that are arriving in 2018, like Anthem, Sea of Thieves, The Crew 2, Monster Hunter … [Read more...] about Perfect Ten: 20 upcoming MMOs to watch in 2018
