About this blog

And a chronicle of his quest to Completionist.

The End.

Well, for the forseeable future.   Yeah, it's over. For now. Over the past few months I've grown tired of RuneScape. It no longer holds my attention like it once did. I no longer felt the excitement I once felt when I logged in. I didn't care for logging in, but did it just for the sake of checking ports and doing dailies. Re-sub time came around and I decided not to re-sub, but to cancel my membership. I can't see the point in paying for POP and the chance of something to bring me back.   So ye

02: Dax Reviews: Rage (PS3).

Fun fact, I actually completed Rage about a week before Flower. BUT TOO BAD I WROTE ABOUT FLOWER FIRST.   Rage:   Shelf-time: Around a year and a half. Time to complete: Roughly 20 hours, all things considered. Price: Technically free, but I had to buy two $25 games to get it, so really like 17 bucks.   So, Rage. What can be said for Rage? I bought Rage after seeing it for cheap in a generic trade-in shop when I was visiting my mum. I intended to buy it a weekbefore but backed out and bought Bor

01: Dax Reviews: Flower (PS3).

A few nights ago, bored with all my other games, I threw in the Journey collection, intending to continue my Journey, but I decided instead to finish off Flower, and after I finished that, I felt compelled to write this up. I might do a short thing like this as I finish this massive collection of games I have here. We'll see.   Flower:   Shelf-time (Time it sat on my shelf unfinished): Roughly 2 months. Total time to complete: Roughly 5 or so hours, spread over those two months. Cost: $25, with

102: A Month in Review: November.

Welcome to what I guess will be the new format for my blog. Over recent weeks and months I've just not done enough to warrant a weekly thing, and I don't put much effort into it at all. So, hopefully, doing it this way will make me give more of a crap about it, but probably not. I don't even know why I still do these. Haha. Anyway, onto stuff.   First up, I suppose, will be my SCROLL PIECES. Which, unfortunately, for the time being, I HAVE NONE LEFT TO GET. Cleaned up the last of the scroll piec

101: 80+ Stats. Again!

OH MAN. GOD DAMN. Closed the tab accidentally after typing up this entry. eh. 80+ stats. lots of div. here's pictures     scroll pieces. six to go     Only had three scroll piece voyages this week, failed one. :c Argh. Closing that tab really set me off. Anyway, catch you next time, ~Dax.

100: Missing, Presumed Dax.

And we're back! After a week hiatus, which happens all the time, I've gone and done a blog entry. This fortnight, I acquired A LOT of levels, man, I couldn't even count them if I tried. Alas, they were mostly all on Pokemon. Oh yeah. The only problem is that THERE ARE TOO MANY COOL POKEMON, AND I CAN ONLY HAVE SIX ON MY TEAM. :c   Anyway, RS STUFF:     76 Divination acquired, slowly getting there.     109 Dungeoneering, going up slower than in past, thanks to leaving my daily challenges open

99: 1M Total Div Exp Confirmed. xxxXXxxGOML 360 NOWISP LEGIT HARVESTZZZxxXXxxx

YEAH BOY. 73 DIVINATION. THAT MEANS OVER 1M TOTAL EXP IN THE NEW SKILL. YOU GUYS ARE ALL JEALOUS.   So yeah. Stuff and stuff. I got nothing to say. I just remembered this and thought I'd better do something.   Got 95 Ranged. This is looking like it'll be my last 99, to be honest. Magic levels naturally, but Ranged only gains exp rarely and I don't care to train it.   AND SCROLL PIECES.     VAMPYRISM. DONE.   GEM-FINDING. NEARLY DONE. Not much more to go now! Woo!   Catch you next time, ~Dax

98: I Should Have Waited Another Week... (99 Hunter! :D)

Oh yeah! 99 Hunter! I was expecting this to be my last 99 for the longest time, probably since the beginning of this little ol' goal of mine, but with lamps and laziness, I've prevailed. I accidentally got this one at Burthorpe, forgetting about the doubled exp rewards of daily challenges, but that doesn't matter as it's all over now!     Next goal, using up all my leftover pendants/recharge gems on Smithing, getting that together with Mining, then other things. Good thing I've already made a s

97: Dax Plays: RuneScape. (also alg is butts)

With a stomach full of tacos and a head full of unknowing of what I should do, I remember that blog thing I do occasionally, so I thought I'd better do it. Two weeks worth of stuff. I haven't played too much, thanks to other pursuits, but here's what I've got for ya.   First of all, I finished off the final superior ports set, Death Lotus, my lowest and least favourite fighting style (No real reason, just never been terribly fond of it). Looks pretty nifty, better than that ol' Dragonhide stuff.

96: Right You Are, Kenny.

And so, my weekly blog post comes forth (SO SHUT UP CHEN), between episodes of MXC, hours upon hours of work and playing of Sleeping Dogs, I didn't really do much on RuneScape this week. Got a few levels here and there, and some other beautiful scroll pieces, but yeah. First up, we'll deal with Divination:       Don't even need hide tags for this week's Divination efforts. Gonna have to work on this for 86 so I can clear the Elite tasks, and then later 99 of course, so I might have to play a

95: Dax Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Wisp.

Though less than the previous weeks, I've still got a lot of Divination levels. And I'm very close to yet another, but too lazy to go and get it. Heh. I missed the screenshot of 52 thanks to my mum calling me just as I got it. THANKS MUM. But yeah, here's them boring screenshots.   [hide=Dem Div Levs] i got dis tho lol [/hide]   Also got a shiny new Dungeoneering level. Only 12 to go!   And a shiny new Hunter level. Only two to go! I think I could power through this quite easily. If I

94: Daxination 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Aww yeah.   [hide=More of the Same!] [/hide]   Oh yeah, still pretty average, but I still love new skills.   And, of course:     Last of the Magic Scrimshaw scroll pieces! Woo!   And first of the Strength:     And that's all for this week. Then I was sad 'cause I missed the 51 Divination screenshot, thanks a lot mum, callin' me and stuff. Catch you next time, ~Dax.

93: Daxination.

Ooooo baby. 'Bout time, Jagex. Divination is here, and though it doesn't seem like much so far, we'll see how it goes. It has indeed given me some motivation to play RS, which I haven't had in a long time, though, which is awesome. Gotta get my money's worth. Unfortunately, they released it right in the middle of the week in which my first two proper assignments for this session of uni are due in. So I've been kinda ignoring them for a while, which is kinda bad. And I'm kinda doing that right no

92: The Dax of Chivalry.

'Bout time, Jagex. I needed me some good questin'. And good questin' it was. Amazingly excellent soundtrack, excellent atmosphere, pretty dang good story and a very enjoyable experience.     Fairly short, but awesome on the whole. And I got a little lucky with my reward spins and got a nice little sword.     Thought after I kept it that I might have changed it for cash and bought a real one, but eh, 2M ain't too much when I have a bunch around anyway. Nice for Fashionscape.     Got me a nice

91: The Triumphant Return of Dax and His Scroll Pieces.

And after a long absence, I have returned. One week I had nothing, one week I forgot, and the third, someone destroyed my houses' internet connection so I was without internet for around three days. I didn't play much RS at all over these few weeks, as I'm actually getting a reasonable amount of work these days. I was actually hoping for Divination to come out this week, but I knew that was unlikely. I don't know if I'll have the same reaction for Divination as I have with other new skills, as I

90: Dax Thinks You Are Incredibly Awesome.

First of all, yes, you are.   Less importantly, but still incredibly important, SCROLL PIECES.   That's all for armour piece scrolls, for now. I'll move onto Rocktail soup to use up my spices, then I'll work on scrimshaws.   Used up some chi for these,   And some lacquer for these!   I also got a few levels these past two weeks, but who cares 'bout them?   And that's all. Oh, I also put a bug on your pillow. Catch you next time, ~Dax.

89: A Bit Behind the Times.

First of all this week, here I am wielding my brand new Chaotic Staff, which the Orphanage of Torvaed Children donated to me for being so cool. Good thing they're not releasing new higher-level magic gear any time soon! Heh. Hehe. Hmm. Oh well. I'm not gonna be able to afford it anyway, so I don't caaaaare!   Pretty reasonable week this week, got a couple of levels and such, as per usual. Here's a couple for ya:   96 Magic, awesome, slowly getting there. Not sure when I'll do it, but it's going

88: You Livid, Brah? Not Any More. On the Home Stretch Now.

First and foremost, here I am soloing Nex unarmed. From this kill I acquired no less that 69 Torva Platebodies, all of which I donated to an orphanage.   I'll start up with a nice little level. 104 Dungeoneering. Excellent. 16 to go! Woo!   Next up, I'll give you some scrolls, because I know you love them. First, the final Death Lotus Body Scroll. Aww yeah.     And I had some spare Lacquer lying around, so I thought I'd make it into a body.     And I'm already on the way to Death Lotus Legs.

87: Taskmaster Once Again.

Aww yeah. Finished off Dominion Tower! And you know what that means!     And the final Dominion marker, which is cool to see.   Got one other level this week, 94 Mining. Slowly and steadily rising.   And don't you worry, guys, I'm still getting those scroll pieces I know you love:   And that's all for this week, I'm going to sleep. Catch you next time, ~Dax.

86: This One's for You, Pepsi.

Skipped a week as I had one thing to show for it, a scroll piece, so I worked hard and got a whole bunch more! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay scroll pieces! Now I've got to get the chi to finish my set, and work on getting Death Lotus scroll pieces.   Also got some levels, but they're boring:   Smithing! Yay! Might be on the list for my next 99, but I'll have to mine a lot to bring that up to the level. Not getting one without the other.   Next up, Magic, oh baby, fire surge. Need to head up to da

85: Dr. Dax, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Tetsu.

Yeah, I don't even like the movie that much, I just really like the title.   Little bit of cool stuff this week, like me finally getting Tetsu Legs! Woo!     Wait. What's that? I got the helm as well!? Yes I did, Other Dax, yes I did.     Full Tetsu is sexy. But Dax, we ask, how did you get that Plate you needed? Simple, this!     And finally, on the Ports note, I got another scroll piece:     Awesome stuff. I also acquired a few levels, Hunting all those Charm Sprites last week landed me ni

84: The Charm Sprite Hunter.

Thought I'd better get rid of one of the easier Completionist goals, and the most recent addition. 1,000 Charm Sprites. Took me a couple of days, but on the whole, very easy, and a nice chunk of exp.     Next up, I bought another thing from Dungeoneering. The Scroll of Efficiency. I plan to get 99 Smithing soon, and if I never do Warbands, I'll save a little with this, and I have a bunch of tokens I'll never use anyway, so, win-win.     Finally, another scroll piece.   Catch you next time, ~D

83: The Seasinging Dungeoneer from the Livid Farm.

Dang TIF going down, made me do two in one. I've been getting a reasonable chunk of work recently, and I've also had a bunch of uni to do as well, so I haven't had much motivation or need to play RS, so I've done quite little (And I should really be finishing up my webpage for an assignment due Friday, but eeeeh). A reasonable chunk of time playing lately has been spent at the Livid Farm, trying to use up my Paws before they lose their power, which is getting very close, and so, I've unlocked ye

82: 100.

Very little this week. I got this with only three hours left in the week. 100 Dungeoneering! Huzzah!   And the second scroll for the Seasinger Robe Top.   And that's all for this very boring week. Sorry I didn't have any more. Catch you next time, ~Dax.

81: 99 Dungeoneering, Two Other Levels, the Shambling Lair and Livid Farm Fun.

This week sorta got out of hand, no idea how it happened, but I got a lot of stuff done, and I'm glad. First thing's first, and the thing from this week I'm most happy about is 99 Dungeoneering. Woo! Slowly working up the tokens to buy the only Prayer (The only reward I need to buy at the moment) I need for Completionist.   Next up, a couple of levels. Happy about both of these, and they both sat around with very little exp to the next level for a long while. First, Magic:     Yay Vengeance an
