Pick up all charms... it doesn't slow you down noticably, maybe an hour for 99?

I always pick up all the charms I get. They don't slow you down much and when I start training summoning I don't want to spend as little of my time as possible on collecting charms.

If something is stackable, and there is even the slightest chance that I might need it later, I pick it up.

They're waaaay worth picking up if you want to train Summoning, and even if you don't you might want to some time in the future. Even for a gold charm spending half and extra second picking it up is well worth the 60xp you get, and for crims/blues it's 300/700xp per charm and they're just begging to be picked up. The only time I've left charms on the floor is if I was boss hunting and had better things to pick up + knew they wouldn't add up to much when stacking. I've never left a crimson/blue charm on the floor to date in my memory however.

Sorry for the double post but I only just saw this and can't leave it unresponded! Slayer not only just gets you another skill up, it practically gives people a way of life. And if killing beasts while hitting 15% more often and 15% harder while getting Dragon Boots and Whips and Dark Bows and uncountably large numbers of rune items along the way isn't worth it for you then by all means have fun sitting at your one monster hitting away for 2-4 levels at a time nice and slowly while I get up 5 levels at a time, and faster due to my attack bonus from Slayer mask, and make huge profits from the drops I get.

Summoning can be a huge pain when you want to level it but don't have the charms.



Gathering all the charms you can while training another skill is the best way of getting them. If you don't, when the time comes for you to get summoning up it will be a struggle and more wasted hours of combat.

What you lose in xp/hr for Slayer for picking up charms you more than make up for in xp/hr in Summoning. You have to look at it across two skills, Summoning and Slayer are linked skills, like Smithing and Mining or Fishing and Cooking, even more so by the fact that charms are untradable, they're very dependant on each other.



The only exceptions to this rule is if you've got Summoning 99 or you suddenly find yourself with an inventory space dilemma. Even if you have no desire to train Summoning, you might want to give it a go later on, once you've got a decent stock of charms and other ingredients.

I pick charms up whenever I get the chance. I don't really bother to train summoning, but if I ever reach my goal of 99 construction, I'm saving up just in case.

Can be looted to obtain a variable item and reobtain the imp jar. If you are insane, it can instead be exchanged for impling jars from Elnock Inquisitor.

No... YOU think there is no point in training slayer past 85. Don't project your opinion on others.

Of course, don't take them if you're never going to use/sell them, that's the same with every single monster drop in the game.

I advise you take them anyway because when you're 126 with nothing left to do, summoning's evident :P

The only time when I don't pick up charms is when killing blue drags. And even then, I only leave green and gold.



They are such a pain in the [wagon] to get... -.-
