It's really just a matter of whether or not you want a higher summoning level. I pick up the charms all the time because I only have 54 Summoning. If you're not an avid Summoner, or you have the level you need, you might prefer to just leave them.

The only time I will leave a charm on the ground is when I'm at the metal/mith drags. D Bones and hides are more important to me.

Think of it this way.



Just because you dont have money to train summoning now, doesnt mean you shouldnt pickup charms. This is the only skill I know of that is trained like slayer, but still requires time and money. Why not just pick them up, and if you have money for them LATER, train summoning. Get your 99 slayer, and be happy, and you'll be happy knowing you saved all the charms and now have money AND charms for 99 summoning.

I picked up every single charm, even gold, until level 99. After that I stopped picking up gold but have picked up every other charm if I just can. Getting charms is the hardest part in summoning (oh rly?) and I don't see any reason why I'd leave them to the ground.



Slowly picking them up for people with under 99 sum is a bit like putting money to the bank. Without even noticing you're preparing to master a skill that would otherwise take quite a while or cost a lot. You don't have to use them if you don't have the money currently, but having some thousands banked before really starting the skill itself ain't that bad thing. It takes almost no efford, it costs you next to nothing and it definately will help you when/if you decide to train summoning.



For people with 99 sum, picking them up is a bit like overtraining it. I personally have gotten over 2 million extra xp (some not cashed in yet, waiting till I have enough to top 21) and what I've seen, with these xp rates (435,2 for crim for example) passive charm collecting is really fast.



So, are they worth picking up? Definately yes.

People always start training slayer and get turned off because of how slow it levels. What most of them dont see, because they tried the skill when they were around 90 combat, is the exp speeds up after a while. You have to do a bunch of quests, get some diffrent gear sets, and train a few different skills, but the slayer exp speeds up after a while.



Also, with the addition of the corpal beast it looks like jagax is adding raid content to the game. Its no stretch of imagination for them to create an uber slayer monster that you need a high slayer to attack. That just sounds like what the skill is all about to me.



And you have to be a crazy person to not pick up charms.

I always pick up blue and crimsons, I never pick up gold anymore because it takes way longer and the exp is pretty pathetic. I pick up greens if I have the room also... I find greens better than crimsons in terms of cost, as with greens you can make the pouches for next to nothing if you do your homework right *stares at pages on which pouches made the least loss* ahhh.. funny how we still use maths in RS... :wall:

I always pick up all charms I get, and I see no reason not to do it unless you're 99 summoning. Picking up a charm takes like 2 seconds extra, and a rate of 1 charm per two seconds is just amazing. Even if you intend not to train summoning, picking up charms would still be worth it, because you could change your mind later. If you train slayer and combat for a year or two without picking up charms, and then suddenly regret not picking them up, there is no way you can get charms back again at such a fast rate.

Why? Have you done it so many times that it's turned into an involuntary action?
