My only thing is what's the purpose of RS gold making these already worthless items have value? For the sake of having worth? They are useless for a reason. It's like which makes it obscenely expensive and taking rice or some other everyday low price thing, for what stage? Aside from somebody is making money from that price gouge, it would not flow with the rest of the economy because both things aren't intended to be paired together. It's simple economics bruh. And the detection process is just a band-aid on a bleeding idea lol. What is the point?
Most of those items are only"worthless" because of bottling or massive resource influx from terrible boss drop tables. They never used to be unworthy back in 07 or for quite a while in OSRS. Also, RuneScape game has essentially zero thing sinks due to deaths being 100% secure for many years now. Things not being sunk will always lose significance as new ones come into RuneScape game much faster than new players need them. Does not mean it isn't happening, just because it is occurring slow for high value things. It's not like this is proposing we artificially make oak longbow(u) 10k for your day.
It's declared on the day no? There's no purpose to an item of the day. This is all talking about what happens on the day. Many times, the wealthiest players are the people who play with the maximum. They'll be here probably every day once the item modifications to buy out each them to resell in a mark up or forfeit to your stupid hole. Again, just because it is not announced does not mean it is not going to happen. You underestimating how this community actually functions.
Does the item must be declared or made known in any way? 1 alternative would be to just not disclose the product, let's say Yew logs have been randomly chosen as the item for that day. No one will know until the next thing is to be chosen, and also the buyout will not happen, so gained from the day before when the item is changed the yes logs will probably be purchased out using the gp and a new item will be selected. Should make it impossible to match the system on goal, it would be luck if someone guesses the item.
You keep giving the example of yew logs, have you considered that the price has gone down,for them for what they are? There's simply not very much use for these, bots induce the inflation a bit for certain but can't anticipate 800gp a log with the introduction of wintertodt as well as my knowledge bolts along with darts being the fletching xp. In the day people were efficient as it is today, knowing I could 2 tick teaks to get a couple of hours and be in no time at 60, so that 60 woodcutting was not as ordinary. Add this logic to runescape 3 gold some other products. The price aswell is highly dictated by the item's usage.
