Its not much less if you're ranging. I kill turoths in 2x the speed tanking them with range instead of melee with a noobladed sword.



And men arent better than slayer.



you're starting to annoy me by just saying the same thing over and over again, and then telling other thats what they're doing.

clues may be crap but you can get something good. I think the time you get your reward makes it better/worse.

And if you train on things like spiders, do you get anymore than 0gp per hour?



I dont think so.

See, I was trying to drive home a point. Averages, not specific things, are what count. Sure, you got 150k XP from killing turoths, but in what time? If your using halfway decent ammo for slayer, your not making a profit on most slayer monsters, making any profit very low, if not downright nonexistent. Some monsters do profit; but the AVERAGE is what counts. Getting good melee XP on a Bloodveild task is nice, but that doesn't mean your always going to get that XP. It's the average that can be used for comparison. And I've compared slayer to other methods of training combat AND making money my first post. Charms were addressed on the first page. Saying you got X amount of XP without giving the timeframe is meaningless. I'm getting 65k XP an hour from spiders as we speak; I got around 2k XP while typing this post. And I'm reading PCWorld magazine between postings; if I had to pay a lot of attention I wouldn't even be on RS right now. If I can pay attention, then I do chinchompas - that's a lot less boring then standing there attacking a single monster, and as proved earlier, is even better then spiders if you make over 140k per hour.



And if you train on things like spiders, do you get anymore than 0gp per hour?


No, but I'm getting over double the XP I would from slayer. I can then use the remaining time to make 10-20x the money I would have made training with slayer.

Yes, why? I know they are one of the better tasks for range, and slow and annoying for melee.

Oh okay. Because you said something that was totally incorrect about them and either you're.



A.) Ignorant to how good Turoths are.

B.) Have never done them.





I've easily made 100-150k from a Turoth task.

How much did you make an hour? Because I can make at least 500k an hour with reliable money making methods, and well over 1m an hour at GWD.

Did I say it was for money making?



I read your post about how much he could of spent on ammo and his profit. Turoths have great profit, so I was just shooting your point down, similar to what I am doing now.



Obviously not everyone has the stats to do GWD, and besides. GWD is meant for money making.

Obviously you have not read my post, your post is missing something, AND I've already addressed your point. I was pointing that you can get much better XP then turoths at other places. Ray pointed out that you don't earn money. I showed that you can use the time saved to earn much more money then you would at turoths using other methods, like GWD. You jumped in and said that you don't receive XP while earning money :wall:

:lol:





Its hard to take you seriously. Point is, you want to do one thing faster than doing several things at once.



You can GWD so who needs slayer, right?



Like I said, more for me.

Would you mind reading my post?



10 hours of slayer = 350k range XP, 400k profit

10 hours of 5 Spiders + 5 GWD = 350k range XP, 5m profit

10 hours of 9 spiders + 1 GWD = 600k range XP, 1m profit

10 hours of 9 spiders + 1 Avansie = 640k range XP, 400k profit





That's my point.

Obviously you haven't; not only have I addressed every single point you've brought up so far, your post is lacking something.



I'll rehash it, since you apparently can't be bothered to read it. Slayer results in very poor and EXPENSIVE combat XP, sacrificing a huge amount of time and money to train a skill with absolutely no benefits besides being able to kill different monsters. A level 99 slayer has virtually no advantages over a level 55 slayer. If you find it fun, then great - its your choice; this is a game, designed for fun. Just know that you would be getting far better XP and more drops if you chose to train with other methods.

Slayer is good and unlike most people, I really don't look into it that deep, I don't see how much money I could make or lose on a task, I just do it.



You read well into it man, this is you >>> :geek:

And this is you.

:twss:



(Sorry, it had to be done)

That's not the greatest argument, though - your saying you don't look into it that deep, you just 'know' its good?




Padding the post count is generally looked down upon.

:ohnoes: Oh no! I didn't post some stupid number to prove I read it.





Your whole argument is that exp and money (for combat stats alone) could be better made elsewhere.



Who in the heck doesn't know that?



Slayer is still an incredibly respected skill, because to have that 99'd, you would need most of your combat stats also 99'd.



I read your post and all it really says is..



"ZOMBIE MONKEYS, GWD, ZOMBIE MONKEYS, GWD, CHINS, I NEED TO PAY ATTENTION AT METAL DRAGONS"

Thank you for at least taking time to skim my post.

Respected, because it is hard to train. As I said in the third sentence of my first post. Except that 99 is virtually useless. And getting 99 proves nothing but that you chose the slow, unprofitable, hard way to train, with no rewards or benefits except being funner. Nothing wrong with that, but its like waving a banner around saying 'I got 99 cooking with shrimps! My 99 is more respectable then your 99 because it took longer and required more clicking!'.

Oh, I get it.



You obviously are lazy and are choosing to say that Slayer is sooo terrible because it isn't a fast leveler.



I read your entire post.



287

287



ZOMG.



All you did was compare HIGHER LEVEL COMBAT TRAININGS with Slayer. I feel bad for anyone who has wasted time reading that garbage of a post you made.



The only thing that you HAVE proven is that you're lazy. If Slayer doesn't line up with how you want to level, then it isn't worth ANYONE'S time?



Am I close?
