The best advice i can give is to look at your runescape career as a whole. For example you only get 13m exp in a skill until its 99 and then dead to you (i assume being a power gamer min/max guy once a skill is 99 you are done with it) and any exp after that in the skill is wasted time. That being said you dont want to 'waste' any exp and that excludes some of the better (faster) training methods. ill use armored zombies for example very fast combat exp however if you get al your combat stats to 99 at armored zombies all the combat exp you get while training slayer is wasted. Also, you have to use the skills that make cash to pay for the ones that cost cash. You dont want to waste time grinding out cash to pay for something you could have paid for if you would have trained smarter. For example you could train WC at ivy for fast exp, and if you do the math you only really save about 50 hours at ivy but it costs you close to 50m cash in the end. That 50m is enough to pay for c99 construction. Train smart. You are afk watching movies while training WC anyway why not make 50m while you are at it. People say start farming now, what they mean is start doing herb runs now, you can crank one out every 90 min and over the course of a year you can make the cash for a few 99s from herbs. Also, get a megavideo account so you have something to keep your mind occupied while you train, this game can make you want to slit your wrists sometimes. Train RC at the zmi, its the exception, that skill makes people want to murder themselves. Maxing out a runescpae account takes years plural. your biggest roadblocks will be: 1: family and friends. 2: other commitments (school etc) 3: your sanity (get a megavideo account and watch stuff) You need a way to hide the oceans of time you will be using to max out. Thanks, very informative post. Problem with doing farming runs is that I still have to run most everywhere I go. :( No worries there, I appreciate the concern though. :) To everyone else, Thanks for all the great replies. I wish this forum had a rep system; I'd rep every one of you. Please keep the great replies coming.
