Gold farming has Venezuelans targeted at old-school Runescape.Times are quite difficult in Venezuela. There's no other way to put RuneScape gold. The cost of food and medicine has skyrocketed under the nation's runaway inflation. The government seems less interested in solving those problems than it's in cracking down on the dissent which has boiled over in the past six months.
A lot of people in Venezuela have turned into gold farming in old-school Runescape a newspaper there published a post on how to do it about three weeks ago. Now this week, someone published a guide on the old-school Runescape subreddit that efficiently made anyone from the nation a target from the match, whether or not they had been gold farming.
Yes, farming gold is obnoxious, contrary to the game's rules and will get someone banned. But the tide of anger cresting from the Runescape community this week is not in the gold farmers, it's in the people killing them (in the game).
"It is not this post that disappoints me, its the blatant racist and'edgy' remarks left by people that have zero clue what it must be like to live in a circumstance were your market is falling," wrote a moderator, that locked the cheap OSRS gold thread five days past. The"manual" appears to have pointed out in which the prime farming locations were, and so anyone in that area, especially killing green dragons, was a candidate for becoming assaulted.
Venezuelan gold farmers are from the wilderness PvP region harvesting green dragons, the selling the bones and hides that they fall in Runescape's Grand Exchange. That currency computes to about 50 cents per hour, with more advanced players becoming around $2 or $3.
