Doubling the investment simply doubles the return

  • If that's the OSRS GP case, you're making an investment which really should not have anything to do with the number of cballs you will need for slaying. It is like how folks think that mining ore, banking it, subsequently smithing it's coaching 2 abilities at once with greater efficiency - unless doing both together somehow saves more money and time compared to doing both separately (e.g. if there is a furnace on the way to the lender that saves you the time of having to run to a furnace after banking), they should be treated as two individual events.

    Since the advent of the grand market, items can be traded for money with ease, and can efficiently be considered the same thing. Say that (hypothetically) you need 100k cannonballs for slayer and can manage 200k, at 250gp each. If you invest 25000k 100k cannonballs and they climb to 300gp each, then you effectively have 30000k, which you can convert to cash or use. Likewise, if the cannonballs rather fall to 200gp each, you will effectively have 20000k, which you may convert to cash or use.

    Doubling the investment simply doubles the return, if it be positive or negative. If you think that cannonballs will rise, then invest as much money as you want into them: the higher the investment, the higher the potential gain on whatever you don't end up using. If you wind up purchasing fewer cannonballs than you require, then if they rise you'll have to pay for the remainder at a greater price.

    Basically, if you believe cannonballs will rise, then invest in them no matter how many you believe you will want for slaying. If you're not certain whether or not they will rise, then keep your money as cash and buy cannonballs as you move rather than stockpiling.

    Over the past week, I have noticed the gradual increase of stray clockwork cats everywhere. I saw you running round the wildy a couple of days back amongst all the PvPers. I figured it was only somebody's follower, even though it was running free rather than following anyone (I tried to catch it figuring it didn't belong to buy RuneScape gold anybody, it the game said,"That's not yours.") . There was about 4 or 5 of them running loose around the GE. Other places, too.
