Never thought it would happen, but I am playing again. My account was stolen around 2012, apparently, and I lost everything. But dear Ard Choille gave me quite a bit to get started again. Currently questing and pulling the low skills (Div, Dung) up to "reasonable" levels. I suspect 2400 total will look like (26 levels): 80 Div (9) 90 Slayer (1) 89 Summoning (1) 73 Dung (3) 85 Str (1) 89 Agi (1) 85 Def (2) 90 RC (3) 90 HP (1) 89 Atk (1) 91 Smith (1) 91 Mining (1) 91 Cons (1) We'll see if
Got 43 and 44 with Tears of Guthix! That also got me 99 combat. Then, I got 45 and 46 with Relleka diary turnins! 46-52 Pyrelords 52 got me 100 combat. 52-54 Spirit Terrorbirds 54 Summoning was 2100 Total! After doing a quest... ... without dying once! And getting a prayer level solely from quest XP: (2101) I got back to summoning. 55 from Terrorbirds (2102) 56 from Bloated Leeches (2103) 57 from Ibis and Falador Hard Diary reward (2104) At this
I've always, in every game I've played, tried to be "strong" for my level. I don't know why, but it's true. Somehow, in Runescape, this morphed into combat hitting a brick wall roughly 4 years ago. I started off wanting to get a 99 before level 90, and got the 99 (and several more), but 90 combat never happened. Well, I decided a while back to get to roughly 2030 total and then push past 90 combat. I came to this conclusion for a few reasons. First, and most importantly, I'm getting tired
Another 3k essence made. Done with Vampyres. No good drops, and a sucky clue: And a Turoth task - did get a Mystic Bottoms, but those aren't as cool as they used to be. 25 charms, and a snapdragon seed. Ooh, speaking of herbs - Abberant Specters next! Only 64 though.
Well, with life being pretty busy, my play time has been cut back to a minimum. That's not a bad thing at all! I log on after 7PM EST, buy my seaweed, get my sand and essence, kill Bork - you know, daily stuff. I might play a little longer afterward, which is how I got my 85 Hunter last night. I tell ya, those Pawya and Grenwall are horribly annoying to hunt. I go hunt them once I get around 100 papaya banked - and it's so frustrating when 20 papaya nets you 8 Pawya, which gets you roughly 3 G
86 Mining - Concentrated gold ore from Living Rock. 86 Smithing - The gold I mined from Living Rock. 86 Agility - Advanced Gnome. 80 Slayer - Mainly penguin points. Once I rolled 80 Slayer, I went and used a load of pies at Abyssals. When I walked in, I got a lot of "get outta here noob", but as soon as I started hitting 20s on the demons, I got some respect. Haha. Not a bad 15 kills - got a clue and key half. Clue Results:
Well, 98 Woodcutting today, on Ivy. 99 WC + 99 Craft = 2000 Total Level. According to consensus, this will be be second time someone has hit 2000 total @ 88 combat. The first was a no-defense low-prayer pure with 99 attack, strength, range, hp, and mage. In other words, a few hundred combat-related levels more than I have. So my skill-related total is higher. I wish now I had gone the "pure" route so that I could max out a little higher sub-90. Oh well.
Completed a lot of quests today, to break the monotony of SC games: Defender of Varrock (can't turn it in yet, it'll roll combat to 90) [image added later] Pretty fun, actually. Loved the cutscenes, and the attack on Varrock. Easy. Killed the bug at the end with my rune pick. This one was a bit harder. End battle was difficult without prayer, but thanks to Rockfish I made it safely. Not a problem here. Expected the last boss to be hard, but really getting TO him was the hard part. Tr
So, I got 2000 total tonight, 88 combat. I invited everyone, but only my (real life) friend Ard Choille came. I can remember when I got 99 FM and like 50 people came. It was awesome :-) Guess that's what I get for taking a two year hiatus. Oh well. :-) 2000 Stats: 66 Attack 66 Strength 68 Defense 85 Range 69 Prayer 90 Mage 84 Runecrafting 84 Construction 78 HP 85 Agility 99 Herblore 99 Thieving 99 Crafting 99 Fletching 79 Slayer 84 Hunter 85 Mining 85 Smithing 99 Fishing 99 Cooking 99 Fi
