RuneScape members; make a lot of money powerleveling your smithing

Posted by Mr Dave AC on November 6, 2008

During my two months of RuneScape membership, I went from level 62 to level 75 while being able to devote half of my computer time to non-runescape activities such as writing for Associated Content. I summerised my knowledge of profitable smithing in the following article.

RuneScape: The Secrets to Making Gold While Training Smithing

Advantages of Membership While Smithing

Earning RuneScape gold while leveling up in your smithing skill becomes a lot easier when you are a RuneScape member. Here is a look at the smithing experience potential and the potential for profit for each type of RuneScape ore. For starters, it is wise to do the Knight’s Sword Quest for its smithing experience reward. It will allow you to start by smithing Iron and put you half a level away from steel. It will also put you above the required skill level for making most Iron items, allowing you to be able to smith the bars to level up as well. Bronze can be used to make RuneScape gold, but it is not advisable because Iron takes the same amount of time to work with but gives twice…Read Entire Article

Mr Dave’s blog featured on the Associated Content blog!

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 24, 2008

I am very pleased to announce that my blog has been added to the official blog list on the Associated Content blog. View the AC blog.

Many thanks to Associated Content for featuring my blog!

Associated Content is a valuable resource!

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 22, 2008

It has been eleven months since I found a website, associated content while doing a job search. I learned that associated content was a database of web content written by a diverse group of content producers. Associated Content pays its content producers a small amount of money for each content submission and also pays Content Producers a performance payment of $1.50 for every thousand page views they gather.  I have been a user of Associated Content fr eleven months and a content producer for the last five months. In this blog entry, I will focus on why Associated Content is a great resource.

Associated Content, like I said, is a database of content written by a wide range of conent producers. There are currently over a million articles submitted by up to three hundred thousand content producers. Say you want to research a random question. Lets say, Frost Hardy Fall Flowers. Real random. Associated Content’s advanced search using all of those four words turns up 69 answers. The articles turned up are informative and diverse; and probably at least ten articles will answer one or more of the questions you had on Frost Hardy Fall Flowers. You may also stumble upon an articl that is interesting and learn something. Each Content roducer offers a slightly different view on the topic and from reading different articles, you get a rounded view of the subject. Sometimes, one article will do a stellar job of answering questions. Last Sunday, I did a search n questions to ask before buying a condo. Associated Content Content Producer Don Levy, a retired mortgage broker who just started writing for Associated Content, wrote a very informative article on buying a condo. I found the article very thorough and informative. So if you have a question, rather than google it, AC it. You help aspiring writers establish themselves and support a truly awesome website. AC has a search tab on every page f the site, so searching couldn’t be easier.

Jagex introduces PKing and PvP worlds!

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 17, 2008

When RuneScape did away with the Wilderness and player killing (Pking) there was a large outcry among the players of RuneScape about the changes. A lot of players left the game and people began to say that RuneScape was dying. Jagex rushed the summoning skill to try to quell the exodus, but the requests for PvP (player vs player) kept coming, and now Jagex is doing something to satisfy these PvP requests; introducing new PvP worlds in which players can attack each other.

I am happy to announce that the chances I have talked about are reality. You can read the latest info on www.runescape.com under the October 15th section on the News page.

New Articles hot off the press (Oct 4th, 2008.)

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 3, 2008

September saw six new articles publish on Associated Content. With the changing of both the season and the times, they are relevent and important. Here is the overview of the new content.

Halloween is approaching fast, and it’s time to make halloween costumes. For those with children, cheap halloween costumes can be made from a large white t-shirt. For my article on how to make halloween costumes from a t-shirt, visit http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1053175/childrens_halloween_costumes_that_can.html?cat=74

For all the woodcarvers out there, this article is the one for you. A woodcarving project I learned was how to carve a movable wooden chain from wood. Want more? http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1050499/how_to_carve_a_movable_wooden_chain.html?cat=24

I have written at length on how to turn a sweatshirt into a vest, but what do you do with the sleeves? Make a santa or elf hat! This is a fun project for the holidays.

Money does not come easy these days. In hard economic times such as these, any way of earning money must be examined and looked into. So far, these have worked for me.

While we are talking about money, how can one ever buy a house while the prices are still low if the current house will not sell! Here is what you can do to improve your chances of selling your house.

And finally, back to RuneScape. Runescape is introducing special PvP worlds where RuneScape players can engage in combat almost anywhere in the game!

Enjoy!

Mr Dave RuneScape Web Log changes direction:

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 3, 2008

Browsing Associated Content I ran across the profile of Associated Content content producer RS who has 7.8 million page views. My curiosity got the better of me and so I decided to track the weekly page views of ten random CP’s to see where I measured up. My content is producing OK results but 23 pieces of content cannot really do much even with stellar results. After the week, I realised that the leading content producer on Associated Content gets 120,000 page views per week! (with 4k articles) I realise that RuneScape is a waste of time. My runescape articles are averaging 1.79 page views per article per day, while my other articles average 2.32 PVPAPD. Of the eight RuneScape articles, there are five duds, two average producers, and one ace. Of the fifteen other articles, I have eight duds, three average, and four aces, a better average. I set up the blog to share my runescape knowledge but the trouble with RuneScape is that it ends up taking a lot of time to play. Whoever designed the game was a genius. It is easy to get established and by the time the levels get trickier, the player is addicted. I smithed for a straight month and only leveled from 68 to 75. Of course, I try to balance computer time with a full time job and writing articles for associated content. The new direction of this blog will be all aspects except plants, which will be dealt with in MrDaveGardener’s blog; my plant blog. Currently, my main focus will be my presence on Associated Content. I use Associated Content to share my knowledge from my experience to the internet world and rather than waste my time repeating it here, go to http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/198515/mr_dave.html. Thanks for stopping by.

RuneScape cheats:

Posted by Mr Dave AC on August 21, 2008

There are RuneScape cheats or rather, runescape shortcuts, that Jagex has put in the game for all players to take advantage of.

Beneath the house northeast of lumbridge castle you can find Sir Vant there. He will give you two lamps that give you 250 points XP each to whatever two skills you chose. Technically not a RuneScape cheat but as good as one without the risk.

Sheep shearer quest gives you 60gp plus 150 XP in crafting—great for using to bypass making pots in levels 1-6. Not an illegal runescape cheat, but a great shortcut.

Doric’s quest gives 180gp plus 1,300 mining experience; good enough to reach level 11 or 12 mining without having to mine unneccessary tin and copper that you will not need to smith. A great legal runescape cheat to get the mining up.

Knight’s sword quest gives 12,500 smithing experience! It is a more involving quest, but at http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/808319/runescape_the_knights_sword_quest.html?cat=19 you can find my easy-to follow guide on how to do he quest. However if you are the one who likes the thrill of solving the quest yourself, then the article will be a spoiler. This quest is one of the most powerful legal RuneScape cheats because it jumps you to level 29 smithing.

If you have money, you can get paid to smith, which acts ike a runescape cheat in and of itself.  At http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/808641/runescape_getting_paid_to_smith.html?cat=19 I tell how it works. The best way to reach level 30 is to raise some easy money and buy Iron bars. Look at your stats and see what amount of experience you need to each level 30, then divide that number by 25 and round up. That’s how many Iron bars you will need to smith to reach level 30 and smelt steel. Go to http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/900295/ten_proven_ways_to_make_a_lot_of_quick.html?cat=19 to learn how a beginner can utilise runescape cheats in the game to make some quick gold. I like to uncover legal runescape cheats and these are only some of the runescape cheats i have found. Stay tuned for more runescape cheats.

Ring of forging

Posted by Mr Dave AC on July 23, 2008

Now i’m a member, I can procure iron bars for 107gp each by buying as ores because I can get a 100% success rate on smithing. Here’s how.

Buy 140 Iron ores-14,000 gp. Buy 1 ring of forging. 1,000gp. That’s 140 Iron bars for 15,000gp, or 107gp per bar.

A ring of forging allows you to smelt 140 iron ores with a 100% success ratio before it melts. Basically, that’s 5 loads of 28 ore each. It is useful to do 5 loads of 28 cause then every fifth trip you need to replace the ring. Click on the armor tab and right click on the ring. Select Operate and it will tell you how many more iron you can smelt.
