It's not about breaking even with 99 cooking. It's the fact that you need to have money to begin with. Easiest depends on what perspective you look at it from. If you have 100m sitting in your bank, then of coarse fishing is not the easiest. If your bank is worth about 1m, fishing is the easiest.
And @LinkOlaran
I'm hearing C2 dung fishing has been nerfed. I cannot confirm though.

From what I understand, half of the fishing spots now give 50% less exp. So essentially it's 75% as effective as before. I heard numbers up to 120k/h before (assuming you're not some sort of insane efficiency freak that never misses a game tick) so that's like 90k exp/h now. And with the large amounts of clicking involved in c2 fishing, I'd say fishing is not even near the easiest 99.

I'm an ex-RS player and I found myself here out of sentimental curiosity for the game.
Just thought I'd put in my two cence.

I was very dedicated and made a large effort to reach 99 magic with very little initial cash.
I mined 180k rune ess, made to natures. Cut 40k Yews +bought 140k yews and fletched them into longs, bought 180k flax and spun it, then strung 180k yew longs and alched them to reach 99 mage from about 60 and made roughly 200m in the process.
That was not easy. It was obsessive.
I was very happy that I had achieved that and several of my skills had benefited considerably from all that effort but it was certainly not the easiest route to gain all that xp in those skills.
I think the point someone made earlier about income/total savings defines the "easyness" of a skill. As a first time player back then my account was not yet optimised for staking (hence why i wanted 99 mage) so essentially infinite income was not available. From my starting point with an average account my efficiency relative to my budget was very high.
As a successful staker I also want to say that it's not easy and even if you have built a good staking class you still have to have "the skillz to pay the bills". Your opponents do not just hand over 50m lightly so staking cannot be counted as ridiculously high earning source for everyone!

For most people it will take a long time to accumulate the money to buy an entire skill so the effort is distributed in different ways (such as self-sufficiency aswell).
It is very hard to compare how much actual effort/time people have put into a 99 if it is buyable (or heavily aided by cash!) on an individual basis.

Yeah...Some people just go out of their way to ruin other peoples fun.

Sounds like Jagex to me...

i only have 2x 99 skills...cooking and thieving...they both took about same time to get...both as easy. trick for easy thieving was to be low combat level for easy pickpocketing and didnt need to pay much attention for other than hp bar....i think other styles take much more attention that you are not able to read forums etc at same time.

construction may be faster but its really pain for mouse hand if doing it long sessions...herblore and crafting is easier and faster than cooking but need cash to do it fast.

for new clean accounts overall easiest skills are cooking,fletching and thieving...thieving is only from those that give some profit in end

The fact that you mention 99 construction is an insult. There are about 300 people with 99 construction and 20k or so with 99 fletching/cooking. This already shows that construction skillcape is extremely rare. For a long period of time (and even maybe now, but i havn't checked) Construction has been the rarest skillcape due to it's immense cost and most people consider it "not worth it". Compare this to fletching/cooking for which the capes are abundant.



Furthermore, construction is very expensive and has virtually NO return. The experience gain isn't all that generous either making it a hard skill. One of the most expensive to be precise



Cooking/Fletching have ridiculously high exp rates and the total amount spent on them is very slight. This is because most of the money you spend to get 99 cooking/fletching can be returned, negating a part of the cost.



Prayer also doesn't deserve to be included. Although it has more people (about 3k last I checked), this is all due to people just considering it more "useful". 99 prayer is also one of the most expensive skills and also has NO return on the investment. How could you possibly even think that one of the most expensive skills even comes close to comparing to fletching/cooking



Don't assume a skill is easy just because it is buyable. A lot of people forget that the time spent to get the cash ALSO counts as time taken to get 99 in that skill.


There are 9860 people with 99 construction. There are over 100k accounts with 99 fletching. But yeah, the OP seems to have totally forgotten about the fact that 99s are hard when you don't have a few p hats (or sets) to sell for skilling.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

I didnt read everu page, but I knew of a thread that showed that if you had all potions (unf) and ingredients bought that you needed, it would be ppossible to get herblore 1 to 99 in less than 48 hours. So depends a bit on your definition of "easiest" because this would require quite some money to buy all the ingreds beforehand, but once you have it, the skill might actually be the fastest from 1 to 99.

My experiences (Ones I tried to get fast and easy):
64-99 Thieving in 2 days.
70-99 Herblore in about 50 hours.
50-99 Cooking in 2 days.
30-99 Fletching in 2 days.
80-99 Crafting in a day.
70-99 Construction in 3 days.

Those are in order of which I thought was easiest. Mind you, as most of you know I get stock piles upon stockpiles of effigies from Tormented Demons... So they kinda played a role in the times.

If you have the supplies, all 99s are easy. If you exclude obtaining charms, I might say summoning is the easiest.

How?

Believe it or not, not a single round of Pyramid Plunder. At 3.2M XP gained for the day right now. There's ways of achieving huge amounts of XP through the Thieves Guild (That doesn't involve glitching TYVM -.-) but for some reason people prefer Pyramid Plunder. O_o.

Fletching was the easiest movie watching skill in town.

Got around 2.5m exp doing broad arrows in the time it took to watch all 3 back to the future movies.

Did around 570k broad arrows getting me from 80-99 in 2 days.

We have a weiner.

Definition of "Easy":
-posing no difficulty; requiring little effort; "an easy job";
-not hurried or forced; "an easy walk around the block"; "at a leisurely (or easygoing) pace"


Now take that into consideration. Is construction really and "easygoing pace"? It takes too much clicking for me to call it easy; the expenses aside. How about fletching even? You have to click every 14 long bows to make them, bank them, withdraw more, and repeat. So I personally wouldnt call that "easy" either. Cooking is "Easy" seeing as you get 100k-300k xp p/hr and has less clicking than fletching/con/etc. Theres even "easier" skills than cooking though. How about combat? You can basically AFK combat skills for hours on end, no clicking needed. Thats "easy" in my opinion.


Theres a difference between EASY 99's and FAST 99's

Easy 99's
-Anything Combat
-Cooking
-Woodcutting

Fast 99's
-Cooking
-Fletching
-Prayer
-Summoning (technically if you have the charms)
-Construction
-Firemaking
