So I just bought the gold premium member's package, and I got the 2k runecoins along with the other features.

I went through the Solomon store a little and couldn't really find anything that jumped out.

Also I was looking at the dragon keepsake box because it's quite popular. Unfortunately I'm not 99 defense so I cannot add primal into it and I haven't thought of anything else that tickles my fancy to put in there, so I did not buy it.
Some other things I was considering buying were the achievement banner, and bank boosters. I will probably buy one or two bank boosters but everything else is undecided.

My question is, if you bought one of the packages offering runecoins (or just bought runecoins); what did you spend them on?
Another question; what part of the package appeals to you the most?

For me it was the convenience, I had to pay monthly before (non-recurring) so this will save me a little hassle. I know for some people this was cheaper, and for some I believe it was actually more expensive, for me it was almost the same (3$ more actually) but I don't mind.
I also enjoy the benefits such as runecoins and the chance to win a trip to Cambridge! My family is English so I would love to visit the U.K sometime.

Full list of Gold Membership Package benefits:

Note: I would never buy runecoins if they were not part of this package, please don't say things like "stupid update", "Jagex sell-out" etc.

Other things I'm considering for dragon keepsake:

I didn't really care about the runecoins, so I just spent them randomly. Some of the stuff I bought includes:
  • K'ril's Godcrusher Armour
  • 2 Bank Boosters
  • Dragon Keepsake Key 6 Pack
  • Emotes/Animations
I've also got some runecoins left.

Sorry about the moves, lol. :#

The Dragon Keepsake box, which seems pretty popular from just walking around RS, doesn't appeal to me as I don't have any fancy DG armours to show off or PK anymore (and thus have no need to gloat wealth over some randomer I'm fighting). Meanwhile cosmetic skins on the whole don't interest me as my current outfit does the job of making me look dapper solidly enough, whilst this 'Eastern skilling animation' crap is (in my opinion) pointless as I'm only interested in AFK'able ones so couldn't care less how I gather resources/whatever so long as it's just done.

Based on all that off the top of my head, agreed with Johny. Extra bank space never goes amiss - especially if you hoard the weird and wonderful like me.

I'm afraid I don't quite get that first part, sadly the re-skins don't work in PvP situations, and some minigames.
I also added a second question to this, but that part may already exist in a different form on other topics nonetheless it increases this topic's discussion-ality.

However I am completely with you on the skilling animations and bank boosters, at first the animations seemed cool.. then after seeing them in-game they were less cool.. and about 5 minutes later they all just got annoying. To do this day the explosive fishing and headbutt mining animations are aggravating because they are so silly and somewhat annoy me everytime I see them.

Used them on random things:
  • Dragon Keepsake (for 120 cape)
  • Assassin Pack (so I can have Assassin name L, was a joke between my friends and said why not?)
  • All the emotes, for fun (I guess)
  • Tzhaar Brute armour for fun
Didn't need the bank space as I have only 300 items.  Would be useful when I pk'd but meh

They don't? Oh, could've sworn that was one of the selling-points Jagex talked about in their first news update mentioning it (maybe I got confused with fighting Nex as a scenario haha). :lol:

Yeah... I'll admit that the teleport animations on offer are pretty sweet, but they're the only ones that stand out...

As for your second question - easily the extra spin and the potential of visiting Jagex's Cambridge HQ (my home city...!) as well. Shouldn't you get priority  access to any and all RuneScape closed betas in 2013, though? That was definitely made clear here. :-P

Spent most on one of the pets. Has nice emotions and looks great when grown up.

You can always save up and something might pop up in the future that is worth getting.

Your right.. why wasn't that in my thing :huh:  maybe it was at the very top and I missed it in the picture.

Ya, I'll probably just buy one or two things now and hold the rest of my runecoins until somethings released that really stands out.

I bought every emote, a few titles and the last few costumes I wanted to get.
The thing that made me buy the package the most was the gamecard stuff I wanted and missed out on.

I didn't really want anything in the loyalty store when I bought mine but I bought the following;
  • One of the pets
  • 3x pack of dragon keepsake keys
and I have around 700 left now and just saving them incase something else flashy comes out.

Keepsake Boxes and Bank Boosters seem the most logical choice to me, not a fan of all the other re-skin things you can buy and I don't like the titles.

I haven't gotten the package yet because I'm waiting for my pay check to come in, but when I do get it I will definitely be getting one of the pets. Their abilities make them pretty useful (so much for Solomon not providing an in-game advantage...). At the kitten stage they can forage (like randomly generate) items. At adolescent they can bank 1 item every 10 minutes. But the best ability in my eye is scavenge at the adult stage. You just turn scavenge on and your pet can automatically pick up 1 item any npc's you're fighting drop. You can select charms, coins, herbs, etc. So take your pet to waterfiends or icefiends, choose to scavenge charms, and then just kill them without worrying about picking up the charms. Or select bones and kill frost dragons without wasting time picking the bones up. Now, I'm not sure exactly how this works since I haven't used one of these pets yet. I got my info from their wiki page (all the pets have the same abilities). So if you're looking for something useful, I'd consider one of the pets. I'll definitely be getting one along with some extra bank space.
