First official blog post update thingy! Between the forum conversion and now I've gotten quite a few new levels: [spoiler=Pictures!] I've been able to go from 82-92 since the new woodcutting update. Ivy is really awesome. :D Unfortunately most the seeds I get from the nests have been horrible. The only good seed I've gotten was a Magic Tree one which made my day. Wait, talk about funny timing, I just got another Magic Tree seed! :lol: Also been busy with school lately so I haven't had a chance to do anything besides low attention tasks, but as soon as I get some spare time I'm going to get my construction from 70-80. Btw Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canadians! I've already had Turkey for the last two days and I'm having some more tomorrow. :)
Daily Briefing Yesterday was a good day. Such a good day that I went to sleep bleary eyed and am now writing the blog post for that day at 6:27 in the morning. And guess what? It snowed! :thumbsup: I started my day off with four games of stealing creation (one of the best minigames out there!) Having also attended a game with my clan the previous night I was able to purchase 5 morphic tools...I then went about using roughly one harpoon per level until the last level where I used two. For anyone who didn't just do the meager amount of mentally monotonous mathematics that means I got to lvl 70 fishing. Actually, after the big fuss I made about how AWESOME Catherby is I went to the fishing guild and found it equally enjoyable. Perhaps I just like harpooning? By the time i got 70 it was relatively late. I drove myself into the night cooking over 1000 fish in Catherby (I know it ain't that much). Soon I had 70 cooking. To round off my day I went for my weekly tears run and got 61 construction. Now all my levels are 61+ Next skill...mining perhaps? What I unlocked today 68 Fishing: The Fishing Guild 70 Fishing: I can now catch swordfish barbarian style. I can now catch leaping sturgeon (also a barbarian art). 70 Cooking: I can now make admiral pies (great...just after I finish fishing). 61 Construction: gilded benches, floor decoration (throne room), and incense burners.

Daily Briefing So, after a hard day of leveling and several hard days of green dragon killing I decided that today would be a relaxing day. I headed off for the Catherby beaches, thoughts of lying in the hot sun tanning my irregular polyhedral body. But when I arrived I knew that no such thing would happen. I immediately caught the skilling buzz, and finally rediscovered the rhythm of fishing I had thought lost ever since I trained in the same place for heroes quest (judging by my quest cape...I'd say that was quite some time ago). I caught a healthy amount of swordies, and a good batch of tunas and that rare but satisfying fish the level 65 .immediately after I got this little catch I ran to the bank and started frying up some good old swordfish. I soon had 67 cooking and with that I was back to the beaches for more intense fishing madness. After a good period of time i got the level up I'd been waiting for. Soon after I was sitting on a large pile of cooked swordies when i realized i had none left and still 9600 xp to go till 68 cooking...So i fried up 97 tunas. That was an interesting experience...I hadn't cooked tunas since before I had 65 cooking so it was my first experience of the no burn effect. What I Unlocked Today -I can fish Karambwan -I can wear Swordfish gloves -I can cook tuna potatoes -I will never burn another lobster whilst wearing cooking gauntlets Today's Pics You may notice the quest cape guy wandering around my level ups, don't worry, it's just me...(I made them to pass the time during inventories) [hide][/hide] A Quick Bit on Catherby :thumbup: Ok, I feel honor bound to explain myself to my readership (btw...~130 views since first post...wow). I know as well as most of you that Catherby tuna+swordy harpooning isn't exactly the speediest method of garnering xp. And yet, I cannot bring myself to fish anywhere else...shilo, piscatoris, and Otto's grotto have all tasted my bait for hours but I always walk off in disgust, rarely with a level to show. :oops: Catherby is special. Unlike those other places it isn't just a haven for those who want fast xp faster. It's a place that people regularly travel, it's a nice beach, it's fishing opportunities range from lvls 1-76 (96 if you count barbarian style shark-fishing). The people who come there are happy to have a nice conversation and it's an engaging community. There are often people just hanging around on the beach doing random stuff. It's also a significantly cheerier looking place than most. \:D/ And theres that fuzzy feeling i get inside when I give a noob a little help. D I Y Ok, another explanatory segment. You've caught me at an odd time...I'm in a very DIY mood right now (its so satisfying). But that is not the usual me... I often buy levels.
Today's "Greatness" Well, I was woken up at 7 AM this morning by my father - it's trash day and I forgot to take 2 trash cans out. Then I couldn't fall back asleep so I stayed up at started working on my school day. (remember, I am homeschooled) I think that I went at a good pace. I made some nachos as a snack after lunch - *burp* they were good. :P I wonder if RS should have nachos? Who knows? In RS, I have changed my fishing plan for this week - I will get 600 sharks, not 200 sharks to make a quick 1 mil to add to the 1 mil in my bank. It will save me from fishing for money for the next month hopefully. I tried out the photo booth today - as it also came out today. My picture turned out nicely. While fishing sharks today to make money (as I said above), I got to 77 Fishing. 19 more levels to go until I can fish Sharks with mah hands. =) Recently, when I was fishing sharks I caught one of those "Big sharks". I don't have the construction level to stuff it, so I'll high-alch it for a easy 3k. After I make this mil, I will probably spend 500k on food, and the rest in my savings to buy a Dragon Platebody, and a decent cape. I plan on visiting the Giant Mole soon to make some quick gold (and for fun :P) I owe him a visit too. Today's pictures [3 Pictures] My photobooth photo... 77 Fishing And the money I made from the Sharks in a few hours. I will update this until tomorrow every 200k I make. It's simple money honestly. :P Until later.... 'ciao!
