We've all been sharing our achievements in this forum for many years, but one thing we rarely discuss openly is our failures or near misses. Have you nearly died to a strong monster? Have you lagged and found yourself in Lumbridge with 200mil less of equipment? Have you had an embarassing loss whilst playing the game?

Well, we'd like to hear about it. You don't necessarily need a picture (although they would be beneficial), just a short description of what happened.

Please ensure you follow these simple rules when posting in this topic:
No flaming
No spamming
No lying (anything obviously ridiculous will be removed)
You may only discuss another's failure if you post a failure of your own
You must only list your own failures, no calling out other users

So last night I was at Armadyl, and I had a ton of lsp and I was hoping to get a hilt. It ended up being the most fail trip ever. Pretty soon, someone got distracted and got K0ed. We duod a bit until we got another person, who also got K0ed pretty fast. We duod again until the first person made it back, and eventually it was down to 2 people again when someone left. Right as we were starting to have hope for the trip, I got the dreaded 'connection lost' message.. Fortunately, I somehow survived and managed to log back in and telleport out to safety.

Somehow the Defense experience option got turned on in my Mage screen, which is odd due to the fact it has always been off.. and doesn't just randomly turn on. Ohwell, 48 Defense here I come :thumbsup:

Well, I've posted this story so many times - it's the biggest failure known to my account :thumbsup:

So it was my first time at Godwars. After prepparing for weeks to go on my first trip - me and my also newb friends go along with me. Apparently they didn't know how to get kill count, and they ran out of food getting 40 killcount. I spent like an hour getting the killcount myself so I didn't exactly want to leave. I asked my friend Dannni Yea if he was at godwars and (it must have been a miracle) his clan was doing a godwars event! He happily said yes I could join. I hopped over, and entered the room. We were doing bandos, which is more or less one of the easier bosses in the dungeon. It was all good, but I didn't leave the center after the kill, so Graador spawned and one banged me :-P... oops

I was really mad but I was laughing also. I got whatever scraps of armor I had left in my bank to go back and get my grave, so I did, and of course I go in at the right time (/sarcasm) and get banged again by Graador. Fail :XD: I go back in Proselyte get killcount AGAIN and two minutes before my first grave I get back into the bandos room and get all my stuff back!

My biggest failure was to get around 50 haloween masks having located the area in the wilderness the masks respawned and camping there for hours. Then selling them about a couple months later for 50k each. At the time, it made me quite rich but in hindsight, obviously theres quite a few millions, perhaps billions that could have been made, but then again, who has that kind of patience :P
I did keep 1 mask set for a year or two but when i went to sell it for 2m in coal certificates, i was scammed and actually sold it for 2m in iron certificates, shortly after i quit the game (for 2 years) before rejoining in RSC.

Biggest actual loss was 16m years ago and it was too......kalphite soldiers, not guardians, not the queen....soldiers.
I was low hp and i didn't bother to equip guthans and then i lagged out and when i got back on, i was dead. It wasn't just the damage but the anti-poison had run out too so i had that draining my hp while i disconnected too :(
Lots my first fire cape too.

Another expensive fail, but this time not something i lost but could have gained was during a God wars trip to Saradomin. We had been there about 4 hours when while running and eating i accidentally hit the teleport button. They got 3-man sara hilt that kill.
I've missed another sara hilt quite recently too, but that was because i left the trip and not really a fail, though still a regret.

The only other big loss, one that made me think about quitting Runescape because at the time i had no idea how i would ever recover was when i died at Bandits (again, years ago) and i lost guthan's spear and helm, worth like 9 of the 11m the full set was worth. The set was pretty much my bank value at the time and it had taken years to get that much, so it was a huge loss.

I die quite often, none of my deaths bother me that much anymore because it's not a problem to re-buy anything.

I was alching air battlestaffs in PvP. I had approximately 20m worth on me. I finished alching all of them in a hot zone to get ep. Not once was I threatened in my spot. But then I logged and forgot to switch to a non-PvP world. I logged back in and gloried to edgeville. Before the map was able to load, I was d clawed and spawned in Lumbridge. Does that qualify?

my attempted pk video. 100 dharok kos with 71-74 strength, 90% of them higher level then me and ~30% of them 116+ combat (vs my 109 with 99 pray, pre-piety). spent a good 20 hours editing clips and soon as im putting in the music my computer somehow screws up all the clips. never tried to make a video since.

just a big fail, had this clip sitting around for ages. apparently youtube can upload unedited clips.

not many rs death pic fails. 170m in rush gear (bh) in the last 2 weeks, but previous to that had never lost anything over a dh set (and one DFS with protect item on in the video - jagex glitch). couple 20-30m deaths at dks and such for rangers, and a 60m death at arma once but since then i welfare in 500k risk :)

Wayy back in the day when I first started playing runescape, probably 2004 i think, i was in the wizard tower watching people shoot firebolts and such at the lesser demon for mage exp and the chance to get a rune med helm and dreaming of the day i'd be able to. This is still when that wizard up there could be attacked/attack you and someone had started fighting it. They died ofcourse because they were a low level and no1 else of the 5 ppl there including me noticed they died. so i sat there and looted their death and picked up this "blue h'ween mask" and i put it on and remember thinking how stupid it looked. so i walked to varrock and i still remember her name, ladyairhead, i said selling blue mask not knowing the value still. she asked me how much i said idk how much do you wanna pay she said for me to choose, so i said oh hell yeah im gonna get her for a lot. "7k i guess" and so i sold it to her for 7k probably when the blue mask was only worth around 1m idk prices back then because i was still so new.

oh and i missed the rubber chicken because i had no idea what holiday events were either still lol.

and ofcourse everyone has had their deaths but this is the biggest fail ive EVER had just out of sheer innocence lol.

Trying to take on Delrith from demon slayer wearing full HAM robes...
I died and I was so upset...man it took me ages to kill HAM members and get the full set of robes.

I also have another one. I was on a hellhound task and it was going pretty good, but I was PMing a firend, and didn't check my health. I send my PM, look at my HP and notice I'm on 0. I started spam clicking my monkfish in my invent but it was too late and I spawned in falador, minus my dragon boots, obby shield and nezzy helm :mellow:
I couldn't make it back because I didn't have a dusty key either :blink:

First time chinning, I forgot a teletab. I also forgot an antipoison. (EDIT: And however unbelievable this now sounds, I also forgot a rocktail) I also decided to stand on the spikes while watching a Youtube video on how to chin. I get poisoned, step off the spikes. Try to run out of the cave while poisoned, poison KO's me. Can't believe I forgot a teletab (something that should have been of vital importance to remember) but yeah...

I'm wearing Full arma with ranger boots (60m~ in gear) and I look back to see myself standing in Falador with 3:58 on my grave timer.

I have never been so shaky over lost pixels then that moment. Nearly lost half my bank. Luckily, got back to my grave with 0:45 to loot. Sadly, lost 2.5k chinchompas. :(

Haven't died since. :B

Invo now:
gree gree, 3 range pots, 19 prayer pots, holy wrench, rocktail, teletab, rune c'bow, super antipoison

I've been rcing recently at zmi, and my method is a bit different than normal, I dont use head prays, and I use bunyip (can do 52k exp p/hour with 75+ rc).

Well at that time I didnt have bunyip and I was running throught the monsters, and somehow I dced for like 30secs, when I logged in I was at lumbridge without agility top, bottom, and pouches.

I was OH.. MY.. GOD, ran to the grave and there wasnt any of that equipment and I was so dissapointed because I thought that I had to get pouches back from abyss (which I hate) and that I had to do around like 500laps to recover agility top and bottom (which I hate even more ahah).. then someone told me that I could recover the agility top n bottom if I talked with the NPC's near those courses, and that I could recover pouches in runecrafting guild.

Well, everything ended well, but it was a big fail!

I remember when I was using whip on my pure, a friend asked me to hybrid DM him in pvp so I said ok.

barrage, barrage, blitz, went to pull out whip, was on accurate. Hit twice, got the KO. then i noticed he said LOLLL

Then I noticed I got 3 defence, with whip. On Accurate mode.

My only semi-big recent fail would be when I finally finished getting the money for my dream slaying outfit (bandos, fury etc). Cost me about 75m.. and I was on my new laptop doing a Gargoyle task in Kuradal's dungeon. I just finished it, went to go get a new one, disconnected, found myself with just my BCP, BT and whip I think. Fury disappeared, Fire Cape.. After that I thought I'd blow all my money on the Double XP weekend. I now have about 20m :thumbsup:
