Combat or Skills or Both?

Recommended Posts

Which do you prefer, skilling or combat, or a mix of the two?

 

 

 

Myself I prefer skills.

When I played, i enjoyed skills, the only thing that would get me into combat was Slayer.

I enjoy both, but I do much more skilling. I used to only like ranging and maging, but slayer has caused me to come to like melee. Hitting high with a black mask is lots of fun. :thumbsup:

I like to take a break from skilling with combat just for a change of scenery and to get slayer up :D

Despite All the time I have spent doing slayer, I think that I have spent a pinch more time working on skills.

 

 

 

However unless I have a quite good mix of both I will want to go Insane / Prolly take a break for a while.

A mixture of the two. Though I think I'm a little more on the skilling side.

I try to keep it fairly balanced. Also, I keep my combat balenced lol, with (other than prayer) my combat skills ranging from 74 all the way to 76 lol.

I <3: both equally as well.

 

 

 

Here's an idea: calculate the amount of total experience you have from combat skills (HP included) and then get your total skill experience to compare with it.

 

 

 

Personally...

 

Skill XP: 13,417,690

 

Combat XP: 9,461,368

 

 

 

Combat LV: 91

 

 

 

Slightly more combat based than skill based, considering that the ratio for skill to combat is 16:3 :( .

I do both, because in some ways there is no point to one without the other.

 

 

 

'Nuff said. :wink:

Both, kinda rare these day to see someone that is not a skiller or pker or pure, etc. I'm just a normal runescape player ^_^.

The way I see it, combat is still skills so I do both. They benifit each other, there is no point neglecting combat or non-combat.
