FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions.

Post by Mrs Midnight on Tue Jul 21, 2015 4:04 am

Greetings Clan-member,
As you're obviously reading this FAQ, I'll take it you're looking for either some answers to some questions you have, or you're just reading this for fun and thus wasting your exp. Stop wasting that exp!
Anyhow, I have decided to set this FAQ-thread up along with the help of other more experienced clan-members to guide the newer and/or lesser-experienced members of OSRS Advice in the productive direction.
Please remember that our clan gladly answers all of your questions in-game and that this thread is more of a last-resort if noone knows the answer to your question.
In short, only resort to this thread if you haven't been helped in-game first!
Please enjoy this FAQ, I hope it'll be a clarifying read for you.



Clan-related FAQ:

Q. How do I join the clan and/or gain a Smiley Rank?
A. You may join the clan by signing up on the off-site (these forums you're reading this on.) Due to a limited amount of room for Smiley Ranks preference is given to those who have signed up, written an introduction, bump the clan thread on the official RS forums.
Clan Thread on the official forums.

Q. How do I get promoted within the clan?
A. The head of our clan has compiled a list of criteria to be met, or to guide you towards, promotion.
The list may be found here.

Q. This is a mature clan, does that mean swearing and adult topics are allowed in the clan chat?
A. Short answer: No.
Long answer: It is correct that OSRS Advice is a mature clan, this however does not mean it's an adults-only clan. We'd like you to behave in a mature way. This means we do not want you to swear excessively or insult other clan-members. When speaking of adult topics and subjects we'd like to remind you to remain polite at all times. Racist, Sexist or otherwise insulting remarks and comments will result in a kick in almost all cases. Feel assured however that we do appreciate a relaxed atmosphere in our clan, jokes are not frowned upon although you may be asked to cut down on your humor if it isn't appreciated.

Q. I don't seem to understand what is being said in the clan, or the game. Is there a list of meanings for all the slang and abbrevations?
A. Yes there is, the Old School wiki has composed a great list which may be found here.


Game Mechanics-related FAQ:

Q. Does Splashing/AKF-training still work?
A. No, a combat timer has been introduced. This means your character still stop automatically attacking your opponent after 20 minutes have passed. (Note: Splashing still exists but will automatically stop after 20 minutes, unless you click your target again.)

Q. Runecrafting in the Abbys / Player Killing has given me skull status. When will this disappear?
A. The Skull status will automaticaly disappear after 20 minutes, unless you attack another player or re-enter the abbys. This would reset the timer.

Skill-related FAQ:


Q. Where should I train my Attack, Strength and Defence?
A. This question will be answered at the hand of a Clan Guide and several other guides found throughout the internet.

Perhaps we should instead provide links to smaller guides for some bits...
I need to find out how to link to other topics. The combat guide is an answer to a faq but it's just too big.

Guess who has resumed her work on the FAQ? yup it's me.
