So in the other words, a skill that is on an average roughly 20k/h and requires clicking IF you have already trained certain stats is easier than a skill that is over 200k/h and requires no other skills or clicking? If this is the case, please define the word "easy", I'm relatively sure it's pretty interesting.[/quote]



Yeah, sorry my opinion conflicts with yours?



An easy skill, to me, is one that is interesting. Slayer is pretty interesting.



Easy = not difficult. Slayer isn't hard.

Cooking was by far the easiest. And imo, the easiest of the lot.

Interesting isn't equal to easy. I find flying without a plane interesting, but it still isn't easy....

Yes, you're using the denotation of the word 'easy'. I'm using my connotation.

I would say skills that dont require raw world materials (such as trees or ores, etc.) are the easiest skills to get to level 99. Fletching has got to be by far the easiest skill to get a skillcape for IMO. It produces enough money to keep training. Where as cooking seems to be easy too, but at a loss of a few gp per item.

I would also say that Fletching is the easiest skill to get to 99 in for those reasons.

Construction is fast and easy but costly.

I would have to say HERBLORE nowaii because you can buy unfinished potions and add the secondary ingredient losing millions but getting your cape.

FIREMAKING

You can buy your way there with less than 4m gp, depending on what you burn. Also, it's reeeealllly easy to do it.

Gained first quest cape on 3/22/09! Gained 99 fishing 5/22/09!
I forgot when I got 99 cooking!

Oh god, the time needed to get those charms and the money investment makes my head hurt . . .



I'd say that the easiest in terms of TIME (losing tons of money and mind-numbingly boring, but still fast) would be fletching. Buy from GE at mega-loss, fletch, buy more at even higher loss, etc. Also, the materials are all being constantly sold so there's no waiting for offers to come through.



I wish I had the patience to sit down and raise a skill up that high . . . I just get distracted/bored.

God, I made that post almost a year ago, you're a little late.



READ THE THREAD MUCH. He said that if you had unlimited resources that what would be the fastest skill to get.




Well that's one hell of an "if". Also, since nobody has unlimited money it's also a completely irrelevant and baseless argument. I could just as well say "slayer is easy if you get instant exp" or "getting a phat is easy if you have infinite money", basically "[insert achievement] is easy if you remove the the thing that makes that achievement difficult in the first place".



It's like saying that a hard game is easy if you play on god mode. Fascinating but doesn't change the fact that the game is still hard.



Ps: Construction came out after fletching and cooking. And construction is fast and easy but costly.




I know, I was around when it came out, hell it was my first 99. Gathering the huge amount of cash was anything but easy.



I would have to say HERBLORE ya nowaii because you can buy unfinished potions and add the secondary ingredient losing millions but getting your cape.




Factoring in the time it takes to make those millions and you'll realize that your plan is anything but easy.

Even better: gather around 70000 summer sq'irks, and as many penguin and vinesweeper points as you can. I bet you could get from level 65 thieving to 200m xp in less than a day, add in the other points and you'd get over 200m xp in a day 8-)

No one has unlimited monesy but people still have lots of money. And you can always get more. But anyway sorry dude i was steamed about something else in my life i will go take out my post.



On Topic: The easiest 99 would have to be Prayer or Woodcutting because it takes almost no brain cells to get them to 99.

What is the easiest overall 99 skill?



I had quite a long debate with my brother about this, and we negotiated between Construction, Prayer, Cooking, or Fletching.


You forgot Slayer, Runecrafting, and Summoning.

Speaking from personal experience, all of the buyable skills are faster to get 99 in than the non-buyable ones even with including the time it takes to make the money since making money is probably the easiest thing to do in the game. I've started with nothing, made 100 million, got hacked down to under 10, made over 500 million, got hacked to nothing, made over 200 hundred million, got hacked under 30m and made my way up over 750 million in my rs career, and each time I made the money back after losing it within a couple/few months.



Now to get on topic, the easiest skill is any skill a 5 year old could do...which is pretty much all of them, but slayer and farming would probably provide problems for them, as would summoning provided you didn't have everything set up with the charms and shards already.

Do people who say Herblore / Prayer / Construction etc are easy not realise they require huge money for them? the 90 Mil required for 99 Herblore doesn't just appear out of nowhere while the 5 - 6 Mil for 99 Cooking / Firemaking / Fletch can be got in one lucky trip to GWD.



If say Herblore and Fletch were put together on a exp V exp base then yes Herblore would be easy but that simply isn't it. The 90 Million needed can take quite a while to put together while it's relatively easy to get 5 - 6 Million together. You have to factor the cost of the skill into how easy it is as the money doesn't just appear out of nowhere, thus making skills like Herblore / Prayer / Construction harder.



It cost me 6 Million for 70 Herblore, I made roughly 4 Million I think in getting 80 Fletch. Figures speak for themselves.

I'd say thieving and hunter... thieving because blackjacking and PP is sickly fast exp, and hunter because it is also quite fast...

They are both underestimated and both make you cash!

And for utter speed I'd say summoning, provided you have ALL the charms, shards, seconds, and pouches

Besides that, it is a rather hard skill

I have seen alot of people saying "define "easy"" and I did think about this thread before I made it. There are many ways to define easy, but to sum it all up and think of the easiest skill to get, including all the definitions (sp?) of easy, can be quite hard.
