As of right now, it looks like it's impossible to get 200m in all skills.

Finally Suomi decided what he will say. He rubs it with his right hand, he enjoys it very much, then he rubs the lamp with his right hand, and says "[bleep] yeah", with his Finnish accent. Then, he finally sees the xp drop, everyone can see it: 1 xp, 5b Total xp, finally someone achieved it. Everyone can feel the ground shaking, everyone keeps jumping of joy, everyone keeps shouting, the Russians shout "Перейти Финляндии!", the Germans shout "Gut gemacht Suomi!!", the australians don't say anything, because they're sleeping, and the loudest joy cry heard is the one made by the Finns: "TORILLA TAVATAAN!! TORILLA TAVATAAN!"
Then, Zarfot comes in, with a bigass horse cart, he tells Suomi to hop in, and he did. Then they drive out of the colosseum, where hundreds of people are waiting for the great Suomi to come out. Suomi is cheering like a basic Finn, he keeps it cool "Jeah, dat was not big problem, haha". THey then drive to the Draynor Market (TORILLA TAVATAAN), where hundreds of thousands of Finns are waiting, holding the Finnish flag, and cheering and shouting as they see Suomi.
Suomi then sees a statue, a statue, a statue made for him. He can't resist, he can't hide his feelings, he starts cheering like there is no tomorrow, which is absolutely not what the Finns do, but it doesn't matter, because, today, history was written, and we all are here to witness it, but not just we - Everyone: legends like Zarfot , Zezima and Yogosun, Andrew Gower, jdfg8dfhd6, dfgdf0gd68, and not to forget, Green098! It will be a great day

Welcome to the most recent version of IP.Board. I'm sure you'll notice there have been plenty of changes and improvements which you'll be keen to explore. A few things have also changed which we need to tell you about:
- The "Like" button has been enabled for posts, this makes it possible for you to agree with what someone is saying without having to make a post if you have nothing further to add to the dicussion. You cannot like your own posts, and you cannot see a cumulative counter of how many likes you've obtained, although in theory, you could go through every post you've made and count them up if you wanted.
- A filter for image links has been enabled. This has been done for your protection and has been something we've wanted to do for a while. Without it, it's always been possible for someone to harvest IP addresses from the forum by putting an image on a custom host into their post, or signature or whatever and then use the fact that it was hosted on a server they control to log the IPs which visited the image. To combat this, all images are now filtered and we've added most of the large image hosts, but I'm sure we will have missed some, so if you notice an image host is blocked who shouldn't be, then feel free to tell us in this thread and we'll see about adding it. Note that we will not be accepting submissions of personal websites for the reasons listed above.
- When editing a post, the link colour in posts on the Deflection & Tip.It skins is not easy to read (the bright blue), we'll get around to sorting this as soon as possible but it's proving to be a little more tricky than originally anticipated.
- View New Content should now be completely up to date with the latest posts and should never lag 5 minutes behind actual posts like it used to.
- Tagging is now enabled and when creating a topic, you can choose from a list of predefined tags which categorise your topic. This makes it much easier to find similar topics that may also interest you.
- Gallery is now re-enabled and fully compatible with all of our skins.
- Tracker is now fixed in Tip.It Skin.
- Massive improvements to handling of notifications.
- Plus loads of other new features and bug fixes.

Main reasons: The game isn't anything like it was over 10 years ago when I started. I have no trust in Jagex anymore. I got pretty much everything and even more than I wanted from this game, it was amazing. So many great memories/moments, it was a pleasure reading this thread too long time ago. Of course it's a shame this game ended up this way but nothing I can do about it.
Also I don't wanna ruin it for other people, other people deserve a chance too to get 200M all Skills first.
This thread and RS was so much more interesting for me when I wasn't maxed yet and people didn't think I was going to be there first.
I still log in sometimes to do Farm runs when I feel like it but going to Lapland to skii soon so won't be doing those either.
Probably uploading video at some point explaining more reasons but I doubt I am going to change my mind.
But honestly it was amazing reading this thread long time ago. Thanks so much to everyone for all the support and everything, I never thought I could make it this far.
In my opinion it will be very interesting to see who will make it to 200M all Skills first if it wasn't me. Of course I will still be following RS updates and this thread like I have before.
Not going to disappear anywhere like Zarfot and many other people did when they quit. I understand why they did it though.
But honestly thank you so much, I still hope to see someone get 200M all Skills someday.
Might be hard to understand why I would stop like this when I am so close but just gotta do what feels the best for you.

On Tuesday evening at around 21:40 UTC, one of the routers at the datacenter was hit with a large DDoS. This attack wasn't aimed at us at all, but rather at the router itself (motives unknown), and along with a few other clients, caused our IPs to stop routing correctly. This was the initial cause of the downtime.
Within 5-10 minutes, we were back up again after the router had recovered from the attack and then our primary networking controller on the server physically failed. We have redundancies built in to combat situations like this, and what simply should have happened is that the connection fell back to our secondary networking controller, and the server continued as normal until a hardware replacement could be sourced for our primary controller. What actually happened was that the network connection fell back to our secondary controller, and then within 15 minutes, our secondary controller failed as well, leaving us completely without networking, and in what was, given the chance of these failures, an unprecedented situation.
This was diagnosed and our ISP informed us the server would have to undergo a full rebuild as the networking is contained on the motherboard. They completed this pretty quickly (it was diagnosed and rebuilt within 16 hours), but they then informed us that the server room we are located in was full and they were having trouble finding a spot for a new box. This is what took all of the further time, while we were waiting for them to free up space. Eventually they found us a spot and re-provisioned the server, and here we are back again.
So, apologies for the downtime, but it was a little out of our control!

The entire Tip.It Staff is super thrilled to announce that we will be partnering with SwiftKit and SwiftIRC. With SwiftKit, we will be the new providers of their client data. In exchange for our data, they will bring Tip.It traffic through links in the client to "full versions" of quest guides, item pages, and more.
As part of our agreement, we will be moving our official IRC channel from our own server to SwiftIRC. From this, SwiftIRC get the additional users from Tip.It, and in return they will make announcements regarding some of our news and such for all of their users to see.
You can connect to the IRC channel either by using our IRC Chat Page or by pointing a client to connect directly:
Server: irc.swiftirc.net Channel: #tip.it
In light of these changes, we have created a new forum below the RuneScape and Clan sections for all SwiftKit-related matters. Check out the new forum here. If you have any questions about the SwiftKit client, encounter any bugs, or would like to make suggestions, please post in the official SwiftKit board!
The Tip.It Staff and I are really excited about these partnerships and feel that they will heavily benefit everyone involved.
New Tip.It Feature: DGSweeper!
Over the last few days, we have been working with one of our staff members, Stev, to move his DGSweeper tool over to Tip.It! If you're not familiar with this tool, here's some brief information:
Dungeoneering takes concentration and focus to train efficiently. Let the DGSweeper take some of that load, allowing you to focus more on more important aspects of the floor. Trust me, you won't regret it!
This tool will now officially be hosted by Tip.It and will continue to be maintained by Stev with the aid of our staff. We have a brand new forum available for all your DGSweeper needs. If you need help with the client, have any questions, or would like to offer some suggestions, please check out our DGSweeper forum.
Note on Third-Party-Client Rules
As you know from this announcement, Tip.It is officially supporting two RuneScape-rule-abiding third party clients. Therefore, you are now free to discuss and link to these approved clients (SwiftKit and DGSweeper). However, we are still not allowing links to any other third party clients. SwiftKit is a well known and trusted third party client and DGSweeper is hosted on Tip.It so we are able to monitor the code and ensure that it is safe. We cannot guarantee the safety or security of any other third party clients, which is why we do not allow advertisements or links to them. Please remember this when posting!

I wonder when jagex actually realizes that updates like this, actually kills the game.
Only one thing sealed the fate of the game, and that was it's beginning. Now stop it with the RS IS GOING TO DIE IT'S KILLING THE GAME etc bullshit please.
Every update is killing the game. Miniclip was the end of Runescape, remember?

"A bath, bathtub or tub is a large container for holding water in which a person may bathe (take a bath). A bathtub is usually placed in a bathroom either as a stand-alone fixture or in conjunction with a shower."
1. A (brief) History of Baths
2. In game Locations
i) Fisher King Realm
iv) East Ardougne
3. Speed Running the Baths
4. Conclusion & Credits
1. A (brief) History of Baths
Baths first came about with the birth of Zaros, whereby in his younger years, Zaros was fond of playing in the muddy fields around his house. His mother, Equenox the Fat, despised him doing this, but not wanting to quash his freewill, she devised a method of cleansing her son, without ruining his ego (or his best robes). She headed to one of the nearby fields, and from it she withdrew from the earth a hefty sum of clay. With this clay, she forged Zaros a bathtub, within which he would bathe.
Perhaps it was here, in the muddy pits of the digsite that Zaros began to frollock so merrily as a child. Equenox the Fat also bought Zaros his own pet, after he managed to kill her own, Drazhar the rather-satanic-Toad, whose bones can be seen below. Surely, this would be the reasoning behind Azzandra attempting to bring Zaros back from the unknown, into here of all places: his childhood stomping grounds.
As Zaros grew older, and eventually moved out from his childhood home, he was always in need of a good bath. After moving into his new crib in Ghorrock, Zaros desired to have a bathtub of his own. Here, in the basement he created his first ever bathtub (Figure 1).
He also created a smaller bath, to bathe his rather dumb, pet monkey by the name of Mojo.
Inspired by their god, followers of Zaros, amazed by the perfect hygiene of their lord, began to copy him, creating baths of their own. In doing so, Zarosians slowly became vastly superior to those of other faiths, a prime example being Nex. This hygiene boost was the key reason in her imprisonment in the God Wars Dungeon, and those warrios fighting upon the floor above, of Zamorak, Saradomin, Bandos and Armadyl all sought to acquire the secret of hygiene. In time however, the phenomena that was personal hygiene began to spread across the land: not only where Zarosians (even Lucien) practicing it, but in time, followers of Saradomin, Armadyl, Zamorak, other minor gods and most notably Bandos began to follow suit, notably shown by the development of the Oo'glog Spa Resort in the southern regions of the Feldip Hills. Truly, the development of the bathtub was instrumental in the shaping of modern day Runescape, defining both the Second and Third Ages, and likely to define the Fourth Age, where it is believed that the follow up quest to Ritual of the Mahjarrat will allow us to use Zaros's bath scrunchie (what is now known as the Stone of Jas), to find Zaros's first ever bath tub: something that is believed to grant the user great power, beyond that ever experienced on Gielinor.
To this day, Humans and other alike races still use the bath tub (despite the development of pouring a bucket of water onto the head, a fad believed that will soon die out) to improve their personal hygiene, although many still use it simply to show their allegiance to the lord Zaros.
2. In Game Locations
Requires completion of the Holy Grail quest, it can be accessed by blowing the magic whistle or fairy code BJR. The bathtub is in a house to the north west of the land. Fastest way to access after completion of quest is using fairy rings.
In the Palace, first floor in the south eastern corner. Fastest access, teleport to Varrock, run through palace to tub.
First floor of a building on the east side of the city, to the east side of the fountain square. Fastest access is via teleporting to Falador, running east to the square then into the house.
i) First floor of the general store building, east of the entrance to the zoo and south of the church. Fastest access: teleport to Ardougne, run west from the market and into the shop.
ii) North of the castle, first floor of the eastern building by the gate. After visiting the previous bath tub, run west over the bridge, then north along the river. Enter the building to the west of the path, nearest the gate, then up the stairs.
Inside the manor, on the first floor in the south eastern corner. Fastest access: teleport to Draynor via Lodestone or Glory teleport. Run north across the crossroads, and into the house. Enter, and proceed up the first flight of stairs, then find the tub.
Whilst not technically baths, these two are titled so in game, and can be thought of as baths, so I thought that any hygiene aspiring reader would appreciate to know their location. Fastest access to both baths is via a charter ship, (closest to a lodestone is Catherby) or running east from Mobilising Armies.
i) Mud Bath: Located in Oo'glog, this requires As A First Resort quest for complete usage and will boost the users theiving level when bathed in!
ii) Thermal Bath: Located in Oo'glog, this requires As A First Resort quest for complete usage. The bath cures and provides temporary protection from the effects of poison, disease, life point loss and boosts the players' life points by 15-20%.
3. Speed Running the Baths
So, you say you want to speed run from bath to bath, maximising your hygiene regime so you can gain maximum aesthetics, much like the high lord Zaros? Well you're in luck! Here is the fastest way to access every bath in the land, as quickly and efficiently as possible. So what are you waiting for? Lets begin!
Starting in Lumbridge, the first stop for any brave bath runner, teleport to Varrock either via lodestone or Varrock Teleport (Requires 1 Law Rune, 1 Fire Rune and 3 Air Runes, along with level 25 Magic). From here, either run north along the red or yellow path straight through the center of Varrock and into the palace. Alternatively, having set your Varrock teleport to the GE entrance, follow the cyan path. Even more alternatively, by arriving at the GE via Spirit Tree (requiring Tree Gnome Village quest), run along the blue path, and into the palace via the same entrance as that of the other paths. Once inside, travel up the stairs and into the south east corner of the 1st floor, where you will find a lovely bathtub.
Now, from here, lets hit up Falador. Cast Falador Teleport (Requires 1 Law Rune, 1 Water Rune and 3 Air Runes, along with level 37 Magic) or utilise the lodestone teleport, placing you at the north gate. Run along the blue or yellow path (both travel the same route, but the lodestone path is slightly longer) across town, traversing the past the park on your left, and the bank on your right and into the fountain square. Enter the building on the eastern side of the square, and climb the stairs. Here you will find a delicious bath, complete with a mirror, to admire yourself once you do decide to leave the comforts of the bath.
Onto Draynor now. Teleport with either an Amulet of Glory (Option 3) or the Draynor Lodestone. More advanced bath runners can use the Explorer Ring Cabbage Patch teleport, although this will ultimately place you farther away than the direct Draynor Teleports. For runners teleporting straight to Draynor (blue and yellow lines on map), proceed north from your arrival, passing through the Manor gates, taking care to avoid the Undead Trees, and into the Manor itself. Runners using the Explorer Ring (red line on map) should run south and east of the cabbage patch, through the border guards and on a north eastern slant, towards the Manor grounds. From here, head north and into the Manor. Once inside, proceed up the stairs, and onto the first floor. From here, head south east, across the floor, until you find an antique bath tub, complete with cobwebs. Enjoy your ghostly bathe!
Now let us travel to Ardougne! Runners can now either teleport via Ardougne Teleport (Requiring 2 Law Runes and 2 Water Runes with a Magic level of 51), the Ardougne Lodestone, or Teleport to Fishing Guild on the Lunar Spellbook, requiring a Magic level of 85 and the use of 2 Law Runes, 2 Astral Runes and 8 Water Runes. Runners teleporting directly to Ardougne should run west, stopping in at the first bath above the General Store, then west over the bridge, and northwards to visit the second bath, in the buildings nearest the entrance gate. Runners approaching from the Fishing Guild should travel south west, entering Ardougne from the northern gate, stopping by the first bath in the buildings closest to the gate, then south and then east over the bridge, to the aforementioned General Store bath. Ardougne Lodestone runners have a choice of two routes: they should first enter the city, through the closest northern gate, running west past the bank. From here they can travel over the log bridging the stream, and to the northern gate bath, or down the path to the general store bath. After visiting either bath, Runners should loop back and visit the one the missed, via either route.
From here, I think it is time we visited the Fisher Realm. Runners can either traverse Ardougne to the docks, sailing to Brimhaven then entering the Realm via the blowing the Magic Whistle on the north western part of Karamja isle (blue route on map), or teleporting directly into the Realm via Fairy Ring BJR (yellow route on map). Once inside the Realm, runners should proceed west (over a bridge if using the Magic Whistle) and into the building in the north western corner, to find my favourite bath in the game.
Traversing Ardougne to the docks from either bath
Inside the Fisher Realm
Finally! You have completed your run of all the officiallly designated baths in the game. You can now call yourself a Proffesional Bath Runner!
Don't stop there though, you can still get to those elusive Oo'glog Baths.
Either teleport to Mobilising Armies (MA), with Duelling Ring option 3 or Mobilising Armies Teleport (requiring 1 Law Rune, 1 Earth Rune and 1 Water Rune, with a Magic level of 10), or teleport to Catherby or another town, with a close dock to the teleport, and charter a boat directly to Oo'glog. If you decide to go to MA, run straight east from your arrival, passing the Ogres and Wolves safely. Enter the spa resort and slowly head north west along the yellow path on the map, until you reach the Thermal Bath to the west, and the Mud Bath to the east. Runners chosing to arrive via boat should disembark the ship, then run west, following the blue line on the map, first arriving at the Mud Bath and then continuing on towards the Thermal Bath.
4. Conclusion & Credits
I hope you, the reader, have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the role of the bath in Runescape, and all it's in game locations. I hope that it will serve you will in your own Runescape adventures, giving you inspiration and a drive to do some good in the world. Remember, the key to success, as shown by Zaros, is a good level of personal hygiene.
I would like to thank my mum, dad, fish, Zezima and IVP for supporting me throughout my research and writing process of this guide. Without you guys it wouldnt have been possible.
Special mention to 999134thpure for the genius idea of making this guide: you are my one in a million.
Hope you win the Easter Egg.
This is a work of art.
Think you are still missing a few though. There are quite a few in weird places (like Fisher realm...), fairly sure there are some in canafis/vampire area of map.
This isn't a serious thread, if you hadn't realised already.
Just so he doesn't get upset, Equenox isn't actually fat or female. He is a nice healthy weight and an alien. ET never really went home.
Any similar guides, most likely to be by Drazhar44 & Swedishboy5 I will consider an insult to humanity and I urge you all not to read, look, rate or in any way acknowledge their existence. You know this is the best guide.
