Runescape – Blue Dragon Guide

This guide is written for those poor noobs amongst us with hardly any rune sets as an easy way to make some cash.

The best place to kill blue dragons is in taverly dungeon.

To get there:

Once down the ladder you have 2 options;

Option 1:
You have 70 agility and go straight through the pipe:

Option 2:
You dont have 70 agility so you have to walk round (you will need a dusty key for the gate)

Beasts Of Burden

Spirit terrorbird – holds 12 items

War tortiose – holds 18 items

Pack yak – holds 30 items

If you can use any of these it is wise to do so as in the long run it will add up alot.

The Gear

You can wear rubbish gear here and its personal preference really but I generally just wear this:

Wearing barrows here would be a waste but dfs/bandos would probaly be good.

I did 3 trips earlier using a pack yak and I came out with:

Blue Dragon Loot After Three Trips

Blue Dragon Loot After Three Trips

Not bad for around 30-40 mins easy work.

current D bones prices:
Dragon Bones: 3,580gp 3,768gp 3,956gp

current blue dragonhide prices:
Blue Dragonhide: 2,175gp 2,290gp 2,405gp

This may not be a 20m armadyl hilt split but can be great for those people who any low on cash and dont have much time to play – you can also TRAIN RANGED here and help the cause for a greater range avg.

Runescape – Kalphite Queen Guide

GEAR

Kalphite Queen (KQ) gear
Kalphite Queen (KQ) Gear

Full Veracs is very good as it can damage the Queen even when she is protecting from melee. If you don’t have Veracs, make sure you have decent armour and bring range gear with you too.

Bring either a skill cape or a fire cape, other capes won’t do much. Accumulator can be used if you don’t have Veracs and plan to range. Amulet of glories or furys work well, you can also use power amulets or amulet of strengths if you don’t have either.

Barrows gloves are recommended, climbing boots or dragon boots are the best for killing the Queen. Zerker or warrior ring are preferred, ring of life if you feel you might die.

For a spec weapon, dragon claws, ags or bgs are recommended (these are not required).

Bring super attack and strength pots. If you plan on staying a while, bring brews and super restores although sharks/rocktails and prayer pots will work fine. Bring 1 super anti incase you get poisoned.

Remember a teleport and you can bring a summoning creature if you desire, an ice titan is used in the above screenie. Remember 5gp for a Shanty Pass and to bring 2 ropes, although the council will most likely have these.

GETTING THERE

FIGHTING THE QUEEN

After finding your way through the tunnel, stop at the bend right before the Kalphite Guardians. Make sure everyone is ready and is in the clan chat with lootshare on. Then the person with the tope will run in and place it, everyone will follow and go down, make sure you have protect from magic on as well as protect item and piety if you desire. Try to surround the Queen as best as you can.

That is the end of my guide. Please tell me if anything is incomplete/missing, or if you have an idea on how to improve it. Thanks for reading.

Runescape – Pyramid Plunder Speed Guide


Quick thing: I suggest you don’t start this way, do a few hours of plunder first to get used to how it works.

Maybe check out the beginners guide first!

Ok, so you’re wondering if there’s a faster way to plunder right? I mean..it’s not fast enough already 😛


1. The items you’ll need


Preferably, take more stone seals rather than monks. To clear things up, the staff is a Pharaoh’s Sceptre. MAKE SURE IT’S FULL. (examine it it’ll say it’s fully charged) (it’s the bottom one bought at GE)

Pyramid Plunder Items

2. Inventory


Your inventory should look something like this (I personally like monks because monks are cheap and it doesn’t take 2 bites like pizzas do)

Pyramid Plunder Inventory


Pyramid Plunder Inventory


3. Equipped Items


For the cape, hood, gloves, boots, those are all optional, can wear whatever you want. Fully charged pharaoh’s sceptre equipped, FULLY CHARGED GLORY (that is VERY important). 3rd stage f2p ring (for the run energy)

Pyramid Plunder Equipt Items

4. Getting There


To use the sceptre, it’s the TOP TELE, Jalsavrah, it tellies you straight to the mummy to start the run.

5. You should already know how the next bit works, run through this garbage.

6. Go to the room BEFORE your max room until the timer reaches about here, then go to your max room.

Going To Your Max Lvl Room

Going To Your Max Lvl Room


7. Do NOT pick from the chests or the coffin, waste of time and valuable exp. BUT! I do pick from the chest right before i leave my room before max and max.

8. If you do open up the chest and the scarab things come out in a room you’re staying in, flick on protect from melee and keep thieving, they do nothing.

9. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 1 CHARGE LEFT from the sceptre. So you used up 1 full sceptre, and 2 charges from the other 1. Glory to edge and withdraw 24 stone peices, and use your last tele back to the mummy, left click talk to him, recharge your sceptres. Edge tele, restock, do it again.

10. Doing this my way I made a minimum of 180k exp per hour and got as high as 240k.

11. I hope this helps.

12. What’re you doing still reading? get stealin’!

Uncharted 2 – What is the purpose of the store?

What does the store do on Uncharted 2 – Amongst thieves?

The various medals you can earn while playing single player Uncharted 2 give you some dollars to spend in the single player store. Most players get a bit annoyed when they buy unlimited ammo, for example, and then find it don’t work. Let me explain how it works – The stuff you purchase in the store can only be used after you have completed the mission on a particular difficulty.

So as an example –
You play through the entire game on normal difficulty. You can then go back on any level on normal difficulty and use the things you have purchased in the store. If you were to try a level on hard difficulty then you wouldn’t be able to use your store items until you had completed that level on hard first. Basically the store is like a cheat mode and obviously they want you to complete it without cheating first!

Where are the online boosters and When do I get boosters while playing online?

ANSWER: You have to buy them from the store. Press R1 at the menu after connecting to multiplayer. You get different boosters at different levels so will gradually unlock all of them as you work your way up.

Eve Online Scammers Guide

Contents

[1] Introduction

[2] The Tricks

[3] Scenarios

[4] Social Engineering

 

[1] Introduction

When a person thinks of scamming, they think of deception; however in today’s EVE, most scams have already been tried out/done before, thus being convincing and sincere is what helps drives the most successful EVE scammers.

All of these conversations are based off of the Payout Scam, a guide on that will be posted later.

 

[2] The Tricks

The trick here is to convince others that what you are saying is true, thus being persistent and wordy can pay off; even on the most stubborn cookies.

1) Be prepared, have your photoshop open; have your game in windowed mode, have pre-fabricated
screenshots ready so you can just insert a timestamp.

2) Details, details, details; it’s good to put time into your pre-fab pictures, because these people are persistent.

3) Calm and collect; the two greatest virtues ever.

[3] Scenarios

Let’s take this into various scenarios, with the answers/responses below it.

 

Scenario A.

 

(The gullible person)

Victim – hi

You – Hello, how are you doing?

(Always be courteous and welcoming)

Victim – are you doing the offer still?

(This shows that the person believes what you are saying)

You – Yes I am, any amount of ISK sent will be doubled, and if you break the record (X amount) you will get 4x the ISK; please note it is one time per person.

(It’s good to have the one time per person thing; I find it helps increase the odds of getting larger funds)

Victim – okay, ISK sent

(Depending on how much they send, you can either take it or you can pay out; typically if it is a low amount (In this case I will make it 1,000,000 ISK) I will pay out, and offer them a chance to pay again for a higher amount, remember earn trust of the low-paying majority is key, however 10m up in some cases is keeper amount; however there have been times when I would pay 100m out.)

You – Okay, one moment

You – 2m ISK sent

Victim – wow thanks

You – Wait

Victim- ?

You – Tell you what, that was a really low number; I will give you an exclusive offer, so you can get more, I will give you a chance to send whatever amount, and I will double it, and as before; if you break the record of (X amount), I will 4x it, but this is your last one.

(It’s good to reinstate it, to show that you’re sincere and professional)

Victim – well… okay…

(Typically the person will send more than before, if it’s,the same amount, you can choose to take it or pay out, if it’s a small amount, paying out is the best option. In this scenario we will say he sent more.)

You – Alright, I am waiting

Victim – Sent 10 Million

You – Alright, let me check

Victim – K

(You can either choose to close the convo screen or you can continue; it really depends if you want hate mail or not.)

(Close convo screen )

Scenario B.

(The rebellious)

Victim- lol, are you serious?

You- About?

(This is a good idea to just use “?”, so it implies that you have no idea what they’re talking about, thus proclaiming innocence)

Victim- do people really fall for this scam?

You- I am sorry, I didn’t know it was a scam to pay people out…

(Play along on this comment, and this proclaims innocence)

Victim- yeh, you pay people out as your cronies or you just payout the lower payers, but you take the higher payers

You- Sorry mate, but for your information I have payed everyone out (and if there are people in Jita who are saying otherwise, say that didn’t pay you), the people in local are just trying to rip me off

Victim- yeh sure lol

You- Tell you what

You- You can try me out, however the same one time per person rule applies to you, but if I don’t pay; you can spam in Jita to your heart’s content.

(The spam to your heart’s content is a reverse bluff, because typically they won’t do it; if they do, you can claim photoshop)

Victim- lol nice try

You- Look, if you aren’t going to try me out, you really have no say in this matter whatsoever

(If you play them down like this, it should strike their curiosity)

Victim- (Will either respond to prove that you’re legit, that’s where the previous transactions with your alt who is the ‘record payer’ is taken in a screenshot from that person when you bring them in the channel or they will say “ISK sent” or they will say “No nice try”)

(If they ask for proof) – Bring your alt in to the conversation, it’s important that you act differently on your alt, be impatient and not too wordy/grammatical, and post the screenshot, also be quick/slow on the chat between you, your alt, and the person; just mix it up a bit. Be convincing, calm and collect; and you will come to one of the two scenarios, but remember keep trying and question/solve why they are suspicious, put yourself in their shoes.

(If they send ISK)- Depending on the amount sent, you can either take it or payout and offer for one more chance at the ‘deal’.

(If they say no)- Don’t reveal yourself, because they can use that in an SS; just close the convo window.

Scenario C.

(Requires an Alt or Cronies)

(The Disturbers)

You- Hello, How are you?

Victim- What do you want?

You- You are saying in chat that I am scammer, may I ask if you have evidence to prove this?

(It’s good to be straight up with the person to confront their initial fear)

Victim- It’s obvious you’re scamming, no need to…

You- Tell you what

You- You can try me out, and you can SS the WHOLE thing.

Victim- Why would I do that when I know you’re scamming?

You- Well, I do have a few people online whom I sent ISK to, I can bring one of them in if you want.

(The person is your alt or cronie, it’s good if they ‘sent’ more than 300m ISK)

Victim- Who is it?

You- NAME (don’t forget to link him/her)

You- He/She broke the record of ISK sent with (in this case we will use 400m) 400m ISK, and I sent her 1.6b.

Victim- How do I know she’s not an alt?

You- Well, trust is a limited thing on EVE, I trust that you do not believe so, besides I have others to back me up; and if that’s the case, how many alts do I have, like 20?

Victim- Well… fine, let me talk to her/him

You- Okay one moment, let me invite her

(It’s important to wait a minute or so – accept the invite, so it isn’t like you’re alt-tabbing to accept)

Alt- What?

You- Hey man, didn’t I send you 1.6b earlier today for you breaking the record?

(Now, when your alt talks, you want him or her to be talking as a different personality, i.e. if your main talks with correct punctuation and is rather timid; you want your alt to type with improper punctuation/grammar and is rather quick/impatient, so on and so forth)

Alt- yeh why?

Victim- Well… I wanted to do what (YOU) are offering but I am skeptical of a scam

You- I will let you two talk about this, I am going to grab a drink

(Do this so your alt and the victim can talk without you having to alt-tab)

Alt- yeh she sent me the isk, i mean how much aer you sending?

Victim- I want to break the record you set, so maybe 500 or 700m

Alt- if i had more money to send i would send it but i dont

Alt- If i were you, i would go with it

(It’s good to reinforce your intentions with your alt without being too suspicious)

You- Back!

(Now that you’ve made your point with your alt, it is time for your alts exit)

Alt- okay can i go now? I have stuff to do

You- o/

Victim- yeh

(Alt leaves)

You- So have you decided?

Victim- (Will either respond to prove that you’re legit, that’s where the previous transactions with your alt who is the ‘record payer’ is taken in a screenshot from that person when you bring them in the channel or they will say “ISK sent” or they will say “No nice try”)

(If they ask for more proof) – Bring your other alt or bring one of your cronies in to the conversation, it’s important that you act differently on your alt, be impatient and not too wordy/grammatical, and post the screenshot, also be quick/slow on the chat between you, your alt, and the person; just mix it up a bit. Be convincing, calm
and collect; and you will come to one of the two scenarios, but remember keep trying and question/solve why they are suspicious, put yourself in their shoes.

(If they send ISK)- Depending on the amount sent, you can either take it or payout and offer for one more chance at the ‘deal’.

(If they say no)- Don’t reveal yourself, just keep trying by rinsing and repeating the whole ‘bring a person in’ which can be another alt or another one of your cronies.

 

[4] Social Engineering

Quoting from:
Social Engineering (Security) – Wikipedia, edited for EVE uses.

Social engineering is the act of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information.
While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery or deception for the purpose
of information gathering, fraud or computer system access; in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face
with the victim.

How this applies to us EVE Online scammers is that we want to earn the trust of our victims and for them to invest
in our scam.

Pretexting

Pretexting is the act of creating and using an invented scenario (the pretext) to persuade a targeted victim to
release information or perform an action and is typically done over the telephone. It is more than a simple lie as
it most often involves some prior research or set up and the use of pieces of known information (e.g. for
impersonation: fake convo, fake wallet screens, etc) to establish legitimacy in the mind of the target.

“Preparation is key, for that results in success”

This technique is often used to trick a corporation into providing you with a higher rank. The information can then
be used to establish even greater legitimacy under tougher questioning with a manager (e.g., to make certain transactions,
access to the corp vault, etc).

Pretexting can also be used to impersonate corp members, alliance members, investors, conversations or transactions – or any other individual/action that could have perceived authority or right-to-know in the mind of the targeted victim.
The pretexter must simply prepare answers to questions that might be asked by the victim. In some cases all that is
needed is a voice that sounds authoritative, an earnest tone, and an ability to think on one’s feet.

==================
Applying Social Engineering
==================

How to perform social engineering in a 2x Ponzi Scheme, you will need:

1) Fake Wallet screenshot

2) Fake Full Screen screenshot

3) An alibi, and/or some cronies/alts

Tricks/Tips for Social Engineering a 2x Ponzi Scheme:

1) Be assertive

2) Be confident

3) Never reveal yourself

4) Have confidants or people that can back you up, ALWAYS!

5) The older your character is, the better

6) As stated before, an alibi on why you’re doing the particular ‘giveaway’

 

Usually, a Victim will present you with three scenarios:

a) Can I talk to someone who has done a transaction with you?

(Typically the highest donation person will be the target, in other-words, your alt or cronies)

b) Can I see a Full Screenshot?

(You have shown them your wallet only screenshot, and by request, the Fullscreen)

c) Do you have any proof that you’re legit?

(As mentioned before, show them everything you go, remember: “Preparation is key”

Remember the three C’s:

C- Calm

C- Collect

C- Confident

Eve Online Pirating / scamming, and everything else god has forbidden

This generally means letting other people make money, and you take it away from them the “easy” way, this includes scamming, pirating, gatecamping, etc.

Scamming:

One of my personal favorites. Im not gonna go into details about how I do it, but lets say I didnt exactly mine for that raven of mine. This basically means using the stupidity of others, I will tell you people some old scams though so you might think of your own way:

Selling shuttles for 10 million a piece, selling minerals for ridiculous prices, putting a condor named scorpion in the trade window (they used to look a like), etc.
Scamming is commonly done with alts, but this no longer works because people know alts are being used and won’t buy from them. Scammers can however expect to become outcasts and can expect to no longer be appreciated if this gets known to others. It can definitely be the most profitable thing to do, but it will get you on more blacklists then pirating itself will.

Ore theft:

Now I have to admit prior to making this guide I wanted to know what it was like, so I trained an alt to fly a small basic indy, within 2 days I was on the KOS (kill on sight) lists of at least 3 alliances. This is the most hated profession in the game, it makes about twice the profit mining normally does. You just basically get an indy, sit in 0.5 and grab the unsecured cans of poor miners (they can attack without police response as of yet). Sometimes they will attack you, with a nice explosion as a reward. Can flipping is often done by people in fast ships. You basically steal the ore from a miners can and put it in your own can then run away. That way when the miner goes to take it back they are effectively stealing it from you and will therefore be flagged as a criminal, allowing you to pop them legally!

Pirating:

Now the real forms of pirating would of course be killing miners/npc hunters and camping gates, most people see pirates attacking alliances, but I consider these people to be space vikings not real pirates (m0o for instance). This profession can be among the most profitable around, if you’re lucky (and any good) you can have people ejecting from their battleships to save their pods, and you can collect an easy 30 million from most smart pilots that desire to live. Unlike what most people think pirating is commonly done in 0.1 – 0.4, not 0.0, 0.0 is usually filled with groups of people, this usually ends up in a fleet battle, and not a fast miner holdup. To start the way of pirating described here you used to only need a blackbird, but since the nerf you need a little more, you also need to make sure friends are not to close, and you need to put pressure on people. however blowing them up is not much profit so negotiation is a must.

Corp theft:

Among these are the most famous, hated and richest people in eve. It means betraying friends you’ve been with for months, and often means being hunted to the end of the world. Some examples of these are agent shield (who corptheft after his corp let a corpthief join, dual corptheft). and Fallzone (who stole form the richest corporation at the time).
This is a profession most hated and it will not get you friends, even among pirates. But it will get you immense wealth, after which you can sell your account…

Eve Online Trade Guide

Trade Runs

A friend of mine used to make 100s of mils a day with trade runs, its useful for new players but I wouldn’t suggest its the best way to make ISK, I haven’t done any recently myself and if anyone can send me some traderuns, i’ll expand this part of the tutorial. For now I can explain the basics:

You need an indy or another ship with descent cargo capacity, find a place where something is sold cheap, then try sell it at a higher price somewhere else, it requires a lot of planning and research and is therefore very time-intensive to start with. But of course there is the autopilot once thats all done.

“exploits”: This used to be a famous one, put up a large sell order for a “low” price, and a buy order (with an alt) somewhere else (a bit far out) once someone bought the stuff cancel the buy order and the money is all yours… This is harder now days though , and finding an item suited for this is difficult on its own.
