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



Myself I prefer skills.

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:

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 <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:
