#5374655 L O G12's F2P DIY Progress

Posted by JAMjE on 02 March 2013 - 08:11 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

DIY in f2p is hard enough, let alone without combat, but good luck nonetheless

Good luck with your house, I've always loved construction too, just a pain about the expense of it
I also drop in and out of Serpent Eye's fc so if I see you in there I'll be sure to say hi

#5372661 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 26 February 2013 - 02:53 AM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Last post was August 2nd wow, doubt anyone really cares but I'll fill you all in on my life over the past 6 months anyway...
Evidently, I quit 'scape around the same time as my last post, I almost achieved 70 base, with the only skill missing out being summoning stuck on 65, but nonetheless I was pretty proud of the account I'd made for myself (stats are still in sig)

With the introduction of eoc, I had no intention of sticking around, especially as I was starting university in September, so it seemed like as good a time as ever to take my leave, sorry I never posted a proper goodbye, not sure how many people thoroughly kept up with my progress but if you did and wondered where I'd gone, well there's your answer.

The end of the summer for me wasn't that great, although I managed to get AAC in my A levels and secure my place at the University of East Anglia, which I started attending at the end of September.
The first term flew by, I had the time of my life, spent way too much money on shit I shouldn't have and made some great friends. Runescape never even crossed my mind. Academically I wasn't struggling with the work, I was just struggling with deadlines. I was never one who had to put in a lot of work during my formative years, everything just came naturally to me. Obviously at university this isn't the case, and I have to actually work hard to get good grades. Fortunately I only need 40% to pass the first year and then the result becomes insignificant in the grand scheme of my degree.
Oh in case you were wondering, I'm studying Film & Television studies, something I'm enjoying a lot.
This term started how the first term ended, but I quickly realised that money was going to be a problem so I took it upon myself to get a part time job at my local Mcdonald's, not great pay, but better than nothing.

This pretty much covers my life over the past 6 months, just a hell of a lot of drinking, drugs, sex and wild nights out, all that you would come to expect of a university student.
Yesterday however, I was made aware of 2007scape, and my interest in the game somewhat sparked back into life.
Today I decided to subscribe and see what the fuss was about and I found that I had a desire to play again, which is the main reason I logged on to the forum to post this today.
As of today, I have returned to runescape, in its 2007 form.

However, unfortunately, I will be playing sparingly and just for fun really, and I won't be blogging on here at the same time, aside from the occasional update I guess.

So yeah, if you're a fan of old school runescape then add me (JAMjE), or even if you vaguely knew me before add me as well because Runescape is always better when there are people to talk to, just don't expect me to be online anywhere near as much as I was in the past, socialising always surpasses Runescape in terms of priority.

Hope you're all keeping well, and I took a look at a few of the blogs I used to track on here and you all seem to be doing well which is great!

Posted by JAMjE on 02 August 2012 - 05:31 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

I've been out the past two nights so I haven't had much time to play, when I have found time to get on I've just been doing my farm runs.

I completed regicide and the clue to find inside was a 90k reward... disappointing to say the least, but those quests were going to have to be done at one point! I forgot to do the agility games event before I left yesterday so I'll have to wait until today before getting 62 agility, at this rate I'll get 70 agility by the end of the events without even doing any proper training which is brilliant!

I'll hit 75 farming today, so FINALLY a picture worthy level and this whole page will get its first screenshot! I've also decided I'm going to get 70+ in all skills, and with only 8 left, 3 of which are combat based so won't be raised until after 1800 total, I feel this is achievable.
Agility as earlier said will be gained through the games event in Varrock, and perhaps a tiny bit of training after the games are over. If I get 70+ in all my other skills and agility is left, obviously I'll head to the wilderness course to get some proper training done.
Fletching will be done via broad bolts, it's just a pain only being able to buy the supplies 10k at a time, but that won't take long at all.
Construction is easy enough, just expensive. Oak larders to 70.
Hunter will probably be falconery until 63 then red chins til 70 to make back some of the money construction will lose me.
I'm not too sure about thieving yet, I got bored of pyramid plunder pretty quickly, so I'll look at what other options there are.

But for now I'll log on, do my farm runs, maybe slay a little, and possibly hit 70 fletching later today depending on how long it takes things to buy!

#5289379 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 31 July 2012 - 03:18 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Despite what I said two posts ago, all I seem to have done these past two days has been social slayer, mixed with a bit of farming and the agility event in Varrock.

Despite only gaining half points and less experience per task, it is nice to slay alongside a friend and with him being less in-the-know than myself about a lot of what Runescape has to offer, especially the more recent updates, I feel I'm helping him a lot too. A couple of days ago we decided to get individual slayer tasks and as luck would have it we both got iron dragon tasks. I more or less geared him up in the same way I was, with my new grifolic gear (thanks to a kind donation from Quily!) and my new polypore staff. We were both amazed at the power of the staff and tore through that task with no problems at all. I also received a clue as my first drop, a clue I'm still working on now after having to do watchtower, underground pass and now regicide!

After that we social slayed some cave crawlers, we decided to little ones were best and it was a quick but pointless task. After that we grabbed our cannons and destroyed some mighty banshees below Pollnivneach and gained a hefty chunk of fast slayer experience. Again, no real drops or level ups of note.

We then did two more tasks that escape my memory (note to self: daily blog entries are your friend).

The next day, yesterday, I spent the first few hours doing watchtower and underground pass, and tbh watchtower was more frustrating than underground pass, but maybe I built myself up reading for the frustration more in the latter quest (I only fell off that maze twice). We then went and killed bloodvelds, probably the most dull task in the catalog.

Greater demons were next and with melee and about 10 monkfish we powered through those, I'll definitely not be ranging and praying against them in the future because with melee they aren't a completely suckish task once those dogs leave you be.

I did a lot of farming yesterday and I feel I'm back in that rhythm which is good, I hit 73 and I should hopefully get 74 today. I also got 43 herbs from a run of 4 patches which is incredible considering I don't use jujus or any bonuses at all! I think one patch gave me 15 herbs!

Finally I spent a few hours fishing monkfish at the end of yesterday's session just because I was running low, and I'm closing in on 90 fishing and my first ever 90 skill!

Today I'll finish regicide (and this clue), slay and farm and maybe cook some of the monkfish I caught at the end of yesterday's session.

Sorry for no pictures in ages! I'll take one today once I've completed regicide and hopefully if the clue reward is good I'll have another one then!

Posted by JAMjE on 29 July 2012 - 02:19 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Yesterday was possibly one of the most boring days I've spent on runescape in a long time, but it was worth it.
I cleaned herbs from sunrise til sunset, only taking breaks when I had to wait for the buy limit of myself or my friend to run out.
I was getting roughly 50k/hour exp at one point which is amazing for free herblore experience!
After ~40k grimy kwuarms cleaned, I was a few thousand experience short of 70 herblore so I decided to make a few potions and that's when I started watching a film too....
Yes you guessed it, like so many decent milestones in the past, I stupidly missed the screenshot. I was not happy to say the least. But believe me and my signature that I do now have 70 herblore and I'm also over halfway through 1700-1800 total!

I think I'll slay a bit today, I'm considering trying to get my cashpile up to 10M just because I haven't had a cashpile that large in a while, and then it'll probably all get spent on construction...

#5288099 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 28 July 2012 - 06:10 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Fungal magi were my least favourite task but with the polypore staff they're a breeze, a lot quicker, and actually pretty profitable with all the stackable drops.
Thanks for the tip on the agility though, I'll make sure I try and remember to do that daily, 20k exp is a lot for not much work!

Yesterday an old friend of mine started playing again so I caught up with him, and being at similar combat levels we decided to try out social slayer.
I finished my blue dragon task, on the babies, and then we were told by Summona that we had to kill 71 grotworms. A nice task to try this social slayer on I thought to myself and we got our gear and headed off. The task was as profitable as ever, I killed a few more than him, I think I killed 40 of them and made around 300k from the drops. What I was disappointed to note was that you only receive half the slayer points, although for half a task I guess that's to be expected. The major disappointment came when I saw you only get 1 co-op point per task.

The first reward was 25 tasks away! We decided to try co-op slayer once more and was given kalphites. I cannoned the soldiers whilst he killed a few guardians for fun, although I did take over 80% of the kills that task. However because he ventured too far from me, the co-op was cancelled, I was awarded 11 points, and he had to finish the task on his own. We did still receive the co-op point which was a bonus.

After those two tasks I don't think co-op slayer is for me, it's nice if you have a task you don't enjoy, but if, like with grotworms and kalphites, you don't mind them, you're just minimising your exp and point gain.

After that I started cleaning some kwuarms for free, well profitable, and fast herblore exp. It is click-intensive but I cleaned a few thousand herbs before levelling up and making a small profit in the process. I've played a bit today and carried on with this method, and I think, if my wrists let me, I'll go all the way to 70 doing this. With a 10k buy limit on herbs every 4 hours I'll have to wait until later to finish this, but my friend was willing to buy me some too so only one more trip to the grand exchange until 70, which should come later today!

70+ in all skills is looking like a realistic goal now, and after herblore I think I'll seriously train agility to 70, mainly because I was given a blue dragon slayer task again and I want to use the pipe shortcut and effectively kill the adult dragons for some nice drops.

Posted by JAMjE on 28 July 2012 - 01:07 AM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

But you had so much cash why did you sell the mask!? They were only going to go up, you should've saved it until you really needed the cash! Or maybe this is just my way of envying that cash pile...
Congrats on the fletching level, I still can't fathom getting that skill so high but I'll bite the bullet one day... Have you ever considered fletching broad bolts/arrows? I know that from experience broad bolts are 100k exp/hour and you pretty much break even, if making a slight profit. I heard arrows are even faster but do make a loss. Just an idea if you wanted to spruce up training, and with this new found wealth you might want to become one of those efficiency enthusiasts!
Keep it up!

Those are some nice clue rewards, two 500k+ hard clues in the same day is rare these days!

#5287022 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 26 July 2012 - 08:13 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Quite a dull day yesterday and I'm only just about to log on for today's session so I'm sorry this blog is getting a bit bare!

I finished up my fungal magi task with relative ease and ended up making around 200k in profits, although take away around 100k for the charges used, it was still a profitable, yet slow task.

After that Summona assigned me blue dragons and I think I'll just kill the baby ones because the adult blue dragons are too much effort, especially as I would be banking every 13 or so dragons, and with none close to a bank it would take a stupidly long time, I'm half tempted to just block them altogether for now, at least until I get 70 agility to use the handy pipe shortcut. I might go get that before I start the task over the next few days but I'm worried I might burn out, who knows.

But yes unfortunately that was it for yesterday, today I'll either block, cancel or do the task, or train agility some more, I'll let you know which I decide in my next post, until then!

Hey nice blog, not too keen on the font though!
Also I'm really lazy and a lot of others are too so it helps if you upload the pictures in a larger size so we don't have to click on each one individually,
good luck with your goals!

Posted by JAMjE on 25 July 2012 - 01:37 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Thanks Jake,

yesterday was dedicated to slayer, didn't get too much done though.
I finished my dust devil task and it really was a poor one for drops, only needed to alch 2 items and picked up about 4 herbs and 4 gems but all in all I'm starting to despise dust devil tasks even though I've only had 2 of them!

After that I received my first dagganoth task and whilst I was really tempted to try and kill some of the kings, I had no experience doing that so I decided to just cannon them under the lighthouse instead and it ended up being a ridiculously fast task, one of my favourites as well with some decent seed drops meaning the cost of the cannonballs was almost wiped out!

I was then given the task of fungal magi and I finally got the chance to try out my new polypore staff and it kicks ass! I stopped after about 30 of them because I was tired after a busy day, I went and saw the dark knight rises and it was amazing, I would definitely recommend it, although I stand by what I said that it is not quite as good as the second of the series.

Today will probably just be more slaying, at least until I get a task I cannot be bothered with, and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

What I forgot to mention was I reached 75 range and 71 slayer during my tasks yesterday but I forgot to paste the print screen of range and didn't bother with slayer. If I get some melee tasks today I'll probably level defence to 78 at some stage, if not I'll continue ranging and cannoning where possible.

Posted by JAMjE on 24 July 2012 - 01:27 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Only a minor update based on the small amount of time I spent on the game yesterday.
I spent a couple of hours fishing in the fishing guild and finally hit 89 fishing, half of 88 to 89 earned me over 1 million gp but sharks are incredibly slow so I think I'll switch to monkfish in the future. I also learnt that the fishing guild is the worst place to try and have a conversation... I don't like accusing people of being botters but it's hard not to when there are over 50 people there and not one of them says a word to you!

After that I started on my dust devil task, ranging about 70 of them before getting bored and then logged off. The plan for today is to finish that task and hopefully get a few good tasks in a row that will make me want to slay, if not I'm not sure what I'll do yet, I think my next 70 will be agility because of the shortcuts and it'll be a nice skill to reach 70.


Posted by JAMjE on 23 July 2012 - 10:56 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

That's awful man I'm sorry to hear it, I hope you don't let it get you down too much but I also think with the stats you've got on this account you shouldn't just toss it aside. Good luck with whatever you do

Adding onto what was said above, the general skill guides on tip.it's main site are good for beginners.
This will be an interesting blog to follow if you keep it updated regularly, it'll be interesting to watch someone like yourself develop (and I mean that not in a sarcastic or patronising way!) Good luck!

Posted by JAMjE on 23 July 2012 - 02:51 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

I'm not entirely sure what will happen after the summer. I know for a fact my playing time will be cut down a fair amount because I don't want to spend my first few months of university cooped up inside on runescape, I want to be out enjoying myself, although I think I have mentioned before that I'll quit altogether. The latter is looking less likely now, but as I said the time I play will be dramatically cut down especially compared to how much I'll be able to play this summer.
Thanks wizard I've always been a combat noob at heart but I've tried hard on this account to keep things balanced and I'd like to think I'm doing a good job, it's hard to believe that my farming level is higher than both my attack and strength levels! Thanks for the offer as well but I've finished with crafting for now, but battlestaves will certainly be the way forward for all future crafting endeavours.

Yesterday, as I said above, I completed my crafting goal. I logged in and found a few nice people at the grand exchange willing to buy me battlestaves and I crafted away. I think 66-70 cost me around 500k in total which is not bad at all!

Posted Image

I even said the level aloud in the public chat because the people there seemed really nice and I earned a few congratulations!
After that I returned all the favours I'd received that day and bought a passer by 10k headless arrows and 10k mithril arrowheads, he was headed for 99 fletching and he had no thoughts about doing it slowly.

After that Quily, or Tranquil, popped past and reminded me I hadn't done a farm run in a few days and whilst my farming had stuck at 71 for over a week, his had shot up to 85! So I went and checked and harvested all that was to be checked and harvested and I levelled to 72 farming! I want to get farming up pretty quickly because I want to be able to boost to 80 farming to charge my own polypore staff now that I have 80 magic!

After that farming run I wasn't too sure what to do, I was bankstaring and it was a fifty fifty toss up between fishing to 90 or slaying. My slayer task was dust devils and the last time I was there I got bored pretty quickly, so I ventured off to the fishing guild and fished sharks for a couple of hours or so, bringing me to within 100k of level 89. I doubt I'll go to 90 right now, I'll probably get 88 today and then slay to my heart's content, before re-evaluating which skills need to reach 70 next! Construction seems the obvious choice because of the quest requirement, which leads me nicely onto what I also plan on doing a lot of soon, questing.

I was sat at the grand exchange and it hit me that I've never had an elven land clue, and then it hit me again that on this account I hadn't even completed underground pass! So yes a lot of questing is in store soon so hopefully I'll hit the 200m jackpot with those bonus spins!

Good luck to you both, Jake I noticed your goals are primarily combat orientated whilst you still have so many very low levelled skills, if I were you I'd consider getting to maybe 40 or even 50+ in all skills before returning to combat. Not only will it unlock more quests and gameplay, you might even discover a skill/training method you particularly enjoy, not to mention a lot of skills can be profitable too.

#5285112 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 22 July 2012 - 02:30 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Ok well to pick up where the last post left us, I smithed those ~700 steel plates like there was no tomorrow, but I was still a good 3 levels short of my goal of 70, so I decided why not combine my smithing and magic goals into one. 6000 mithril bars it was going to take me to get 80 magic and 70 smithing, but I was willing to do it for the sake of not spending a fortune on 3 smithing levels!

After buying the supplies I headed off to yanille bank, my new favourite training hotspot for any bank sitting activities. It is peaceful there but never empty, there is often a couple of other skillers there you can have a genuinely decent conversation with, which I tend to find difficult around the grand exchange.

I was a long day but the first milestone to come was the higher level, but some may say less impressive due to the amount of 99s in this skill.

Posted Image

Whilst many people with much lower combat levels have much higher magic levels than me, level 80 magic is truly a grand achievement for someone who despises grinding any skill, including magic. Alching 20k items was never an option for me, so I got magic to 80 the slow way.

Closely following that level was this one. I think this is actually a slightly better achievement, despite it being 10 levels lower. I've achieved 78 magic on another account before but I'd never even passed 60 smithing on any account, so to reach 70 on this one is a real signifier that this account is my best by far.

Posted Image

So that's another two goals crossed off my list, and that being said, I should probably update the goals on my front page seeing as most of them are done now!

This is a two day post because I was busy last night but I didn't get time to start crafting before I went out, so I started that this morning.
Waking up before noon is something I've been struggling with this summer but I've decided to try and wake up at around 11am each day now just so I'm not completely wasting my summer!

Today I logged in and bought as many battlestaves as Zaff and the grand exchange would allow me, 116. Not great considering I would need to craft over 1500 to reach 70 crafting. However, in that session earlier all in all I crafted around 800 air battlestaves, all down to the kindness of the runescape community.

The runescape community spirit is often called into question, and I am not usually one for defending it, with constant abuse being hurled between immature players. Today however, a total of 7 strangers went out of their way to buy me battlestaves off the grand exchange and sell them back to me at market value. I assume they maybe made 5-10k profit, but really the profit wasn't why they were doing it. They were doing it because they wanted to help out another player, and that really did restore my faith in the game.

There were the obvious few trolls who told me I'd have to pay 10million gp for the staves, but all in all I was very happy with the way these generous and kind people conducted themselves.

As I type this I am logged out on 68 crafting because it seems there are only so many kind people in the game. Hopefully I'll log in soon and find another 7 or 8 players who will be willing to take a few seconds out from their training to help me reach my goal of 70 crafting. After that I think some combat is in store because I've neglected it for almost a week now! I think a goal of 1800 total before the end of July is a bit much but that is what I'm hoping to be near when that time comes, so we'll see how things go!

What happened yesterday? I hear you all so eagerly ask!
Yesterday I hit a milestone I never thought possible with my attention span. After about 15 hours of solid mining I reached this phenonemal level, and gained almost 8000 coal in the process!

Posted Image

Adamantite ore I'm coming for you! Well probably not, that'll be enough mining for a while I think, a big thanks to Insane Chef for lending me his dragon pickaxe twice, seriously speeding up the entire operation!

After mining I bought some iron ore and nature runes and the rest of the day was spent superheating. It's hard to type whilst superheating so I couldn't really enjoy it too much but I positioned myself so I could still watch a film at the same time, so the task of smelting almost 4000 steel bars wasn't as ardous as I'd expected it to be. I gained 2 magic and 2 smithing levels in that time too!

Tomorrow I will be smithing steel plates, alching steel plates and then probably superheating some mithril bars to get 70 smithing and 80 magic in the same breathe!
After that it's crafting's turn to hit the big 70, but I haven't quite figured out how best to do that yet...

#5283751 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 19 July 2012 - 01:12 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

I've come to the conclusion mining isn't too bad.

I think it's just powermining I despise because of all that clicking. Mining coal with a dragon pickaxe and running for two seconds before banking it a much more enjoyable way to mine, and I'm getting about 15k exp/hour which is more or less what I got from powermining iron anyway so I'm content.

Never before, have I grinded a skill as much as this, and that alone deserves a mention.

No pictures from yesterday despite levelling mining past the nice 65 milestone. I genuinely think I'm going to hit 70 mining today. 62-70 mining via coal in two days is pretty damn impressive if you ask me! I think I'll end up with around 7000 coal or so, maybe a bit less. How ever much I end up with will be divided by two, and that is how many iron ores I will be purchasing in preparation for the big smithing skillathon. I'll also need the same amount of nature runes as I do coal. Not half because I will not only be superheating all of this ore into steel bars, I'll be smithing into plates for high alching a bit later, the process I believe will take me to around 67 smithing and I'll also gain a couple of magic levels bringing that skill up to a nice tidy 78! 2 from my goal of 80!

Well back to mining for me, closing in on 70 is a place I never thought I'd be with this skill but it seems I'm almost there!

#5283280 JAMjE's blog of post-mediocrity!

Posted by JAMjE on 18 July 2012 - 03:33 PM in BlogScape (Ongoing Progress Reports and Goals)

Thanks Greg, I certainly did power through the 1600s but since hitting the big 1700 I've definitely slowed down big time. It's been down to a mixture of running out of goals and motivation, and obviously as you increase levels, the time it takes to further better oneself increase exponentially.

Yesterday I finished off my greater demon task without having to bank because I found a nifty little safe spot which I used to lure that last ten or so demons to their doom and after that I completed a mediocre clue before being challenged with the task of kill over a hundred dust devils, the exact number escapes me. Having completed a dust devil task quite recently I decided to call another break on slayer and called it a day in general.

Today after Insane Chef so kindly lent me his dragon pickaxe, I will be mining coal in the resource dungeon non stop. I have worked out that 6000 coal and 3000 iron will get me to 70 mining, a long way off I know, but we'll see if I can actually grind out a skill for a change! I estimate this mining will take me until the weekend at the earliest, but with not much else to do I could be done sooner than I imagine!

P.S Insane Chef I'll be needing to borrow this pickaxe more often, it's awesome, I certainly notice the difference between rune and dragon!

Roll on 70+ all F2P skills, although dungeoneering and prayer will both have to wait because I don't want to be training combat outside of slayer for a while. Once I reach 1800 total I guess to really become efficient I'll have to get 80 attack and work on getting a chaotic rapier for slaying, but that is a long way off.

Mine mine mine!

So what have I been up to over the past few days, I hear my ever dwindling number of readers ask.
Well not a lot at first, but yesterday I got in a proper session of runescape, and the entirety of that session was spent slaying.

The day started off with that dust devil task from which I gained 70 slayer and 1700 total. No dragon chain drop unfortunately, well no real drops of any worth to be fair, quite an underwhelming task, but nothing too difficult for my rune crossbow.

After that I received banshees and I decided to take a trip to the smoky well to take on the greater of the two varieties which also allowed me to take advantage of the multi-combat by using my cannon. I blitzed through this task, and although I didn't receive a clue scroll, I received what some, not me, would call the better scroll.

I know how rare they are, and after only killing ~300 banshees in total on this account I should be greatful, however, the rewards for the champion scrolls are so pathetic they're hardly worth doing.

After that I was given a greater demon task and I'm currently stuck in brimhaven dungeon with about 40 left but not enough prayer potions to last me the remainder of the trip which is frustrating to say the least, so I'll be having to bank and return before this task is out, but once more I'm powering through with my rune crossbow and in the next task, if rangeable, I should hit 75 range and possibly 71 slayer, so here's hoping for a nice one!

Wow I've really let this blog slip, I'm sorry!
I really haven't been playing much lately and I don't have any reason for it other than lack of motivation.
After reaching 60 hunter, and obviously following the recent trend, missing the picture, I found myself with 60+ all skills (minus summoning) and I couldn't find anything that I really wanted to do next, I tried fishing, and got bored after 250 shark, I tried mining and got bored after 250 iron so I really don't know what to do with my time, even slayer seems a bit too tedious for my liking right now so if anyone can suggest something for me to do I'm all ears.
Perhaps a skill related minigame or activity that isn't as mainstream or popular but fun?
Efficiency doesn't matter to me, enjoyment does, so the more fun the better.
I'm going to log on now and see is I get the urge to try something but if not I doubt I'll stay on for long...

So yesterday I got the last 2 construction levels and missed the print screen, well more forgot than missed, and then started on hunter, getting 53 before logging out.

Today I picked up where I left off, although chinchompas were far too slow so I returned to falconery and am currently level 58 so I won't be getting 60 until tomorrow it seems.

Sorry for such a poor update from 2 days worth, I've just not been on too much lately, and tomorrow will follow the same pattern, although after 60 hunter only summoning will be left under 60 and I won't be raising that because of I don't want to gain combat levels, so we'll see what happens, I'll probably slay for a bit until I hit 99.999999 combat and then skill until 1800 total, I'm seriously considering pushing fishing towards 90 and then I can slowly but surely head to 99 via rocktails and make some bank, but who knows.
