LEVEL 86!!! :twss:



Mining with a carrot!
I can hardly believe it! Even with doing the Easter event I still managed to get 100k Xp today! :thumbsup:

I completely spaced on how close I was to leveling, and agreed to loan my mask to someone who offered me 10k for an hour so I wasn't wearing it for the pic. #-o



I don't understand why there's so much complaining about the holiday events. I like doing them. I've always found them to be a nice break from the repetitiveness of training. I really like that we got a new novelty weapon as I missed the rubber chicken when it came out. The emote is really good as well; speeding off in a cloud of smoke is always going to be funny. :lol: I was really surprised at how many people were just standing around in the event just saying "what do I do?". The quest wasn't difficult to figure out. Are people really that lazy that they don't even try to figure out what to do?



The new event really worked to my advantage today as there was almost no one in the Rimmington mine, even on a nearly full world! I spent most of my time tonight at the NW end of the mine with the four iron rocks. I was there for about an hour when someone else came in and started working on one of the outer two rocks. He took a lot of swings to get it and I figured he would stick to the outer two. Instead he kept trying to get the ones I was working on. :-s He just kept trying, randomly getting one of the others and then coming back. I even asked him why he didn't just keep to the outer two instead of fighting me for the two I was working on, but he didn't reply. He just kept trying in vain to mine the rocks I was working on. He was there for nearly half an hour in total. More than enough time for me to figure him out...he was botting! :o That's right. By changing the speed I mined at I was able to experiment with him. If I got both of them so that they hadn't had a chance to respawn when he stopped swinging his pick, then he moved to one of the others, but if I spaced them out (like I usually do) so that one respawns shortly after mining the other then he would just keep going back and forth between them as the bot kept trying to get the closest one. :wall: I figure the whole time he was there, he only got about four ores. I was able to mine Runite faster than that! Eventually he walked away saying "OMG". It was pretty funny.



I'm hoping to make level 87 by the end of the weekend, but Easter tends to get pretty busy so I don't know how much mining I'll be able to get in.

I'm off to bed now. Good-night everyone!

I tried to post this last night, but I couldn't get on the forums...



I made just over 85k Xp yesterday, but the big news is that I finally got my final random event reward! \<img src=/' />

...for no mere mortal can resist the evil of the Thriller!
That's right, Zombie Dance was the last emote I needed! I now have all the F2P emotes, except for Give Thanks...I can't believe I missed that one... #-o. Oh, well. Hopefully they're doing another Thanksgiving event this year and I'll be able to get it then. I'd never seen Zombie Dance before, and I couldn't believe it; it was right out of the big dance sequence in "Thriller"! Awesome! Yes, that's right. I'm old enough to remember not only "Thriller", but also a time when Micheal Jackson still mattered. :lol:



From here on out, all the random event rewards will be strictly Xp items. After all, every little bit helps, eh?

Nice... :shock: I can't believe someone actually mines in f2p worlds.

The only person I know that has 99 mining did all xp after 83 in granite in p2p..

Gl with your goals- f2p IS hard to manage imo.

LEVEL 87 BABY! :twss: AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING!

Happy Easter to me!
I almost made it last night. At midnight I only had 30k Xp to go but I was exhausted and knew that the kids would get me up early today so I decided to go to bed. I made a sprint to the end in about 45 minutes this morning as I got really lucky and found that the Rimmington mine on world 1 was practically empty despite the world being full. I guess everyone was doing the Easter event.



I figure it will take me most of the week to get to 88, but I'll be crossing the 4 million Xp mark later tonight! \<img src=/' /> I probably won't be able to get on anymore today until after the kids go to bed because my mother is coming for dinner tonight and I need to spend the rest of the day cleaning the disaster area that is my kitchen. Hey, I'm a single guy who lives alone...Martha Stewart I ain't. :lol:



Nice... :shock: I can't believe someone actually mines in f2p worlds.

The only person I know that has 99 mining did all xp after 83 in granite in p2p..

Gl with your goals- f2p IS hard to manage imo.

Thanks. It *is* pretty tedious at times, especially since iron only gives about half the Xp/hour of granite (from what I've been reading). Still, it gives me something mindless to do when I've had a long day at work and a long term goal to work towards that helps keep me interested in the game. I usually play for a couple of weeks, stop for a while (that's why I missed the Thanksgiving event) and then come back for a couple of more weeks. I figure that by the time I reach 99, it will have been the longest continuous stretch I've ever played RuneScape.



Oh well, no more procrastinating...I've got a kitchen to clean! HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Thanks for the support everyone! You guys rock. :thumbsup:

I'm over half-way to level 88 now, only 200k Xp to go! I'm hoping to get it by Thursday or Friday. I've had quite a bit of success in finding free spots on full worlds the past couple of days. Here's hoping I can keep it up. :pray:



Hey I also am doing a test on being a girl and are you a skiller or what?? My test is to see if people give girls mroe stuff then they would dudes... And i also love mining :mrgreen:


I don't consider myself a "pure" skiller, my combat level is 63. But I've definitely put more effort into my non-combat skills, especially Mining and Smithing. They were the very first skills I started working on. Heck, the only reason I started raising my attack level was so that I could wield higher level picks. In the end I raised my other combat skills so I could complete the Dragon Slayer quest, and my Ranged so I could wear green dragonhide. The only reason I raised my Prayer was in an unsuccessful attempt to get the Gravedigger random and get the last couple of random rewards I needed, both of which I've gotten since I started this blog (I don't even want to think about how much I spent on bones or how much time I wasted burying them... :? ). I used the profits from Mining and Smithing to fund Magic until level 43 so I could cast superheat ore...and do yet more mining. :D (superheating is very efficient btw)



To be honest, I did nothing but Mining/Smithing for so long I actually thought that all the harvesting skills were gain-a-single-item-then-wait-for-respawn. Then I gained 70 Woodcutting levels in two weeks...while cross-training Firemaking...and making a fair bit of profit in the process. Then I started raising Fishing/Cooking/Crafting/Runecrafting to finish the Lumbridge/Draynor achievement diary, and enjoyed Fishing/Cooking so I got them up to 60/61. I raised my Crafting to 43 so when I started mining again (yes, it always comes back to that) I could cut any gems that I found.



I don't know about people giving girls more stuff though, I've never had to ask anyone for anything. The Mining/Smithing paid for everything in the beginning and I've since found several other ways to get cash, although they're not quite as profitable. Heck, nothing I've found in F2P is as profitable as mining Runite. :<img src=:' />



Whew! I think that's enough history for one day. See you all next time.

If I'm lucky enough to get a spot on a full world, I get about 32k Xp/h in Rimmington.

Woot! The Crazy 88! :twss: (because you have to be crazy to have mined this much!)

Another step closer


I had been hoping to make it sooner, the past couple of days have been pretty crazy, but I did it! :thumbsup:



I worked until 10pm Thursday night, and then last night and today I had to try and fix my ex's computer. She's been having some problems with it and asked me to take a look at it this weekend while she was out of town. Unfortunately, while I was bringing it into the house my freaking dog ran out of the door and straight into me! I tripped over her, dropping the tower onto the concrete step and landing painfully on my knee. :cry: After 10 minutes of yelling and cursing I started looking at how badly damaged it was...long story short, the rear corner was smashed in pretty good but everything seemed to work properly. Fortunately, my job has given me a large selection of tools and skills so I was able to repair the tower frame and trim panels (aluminum is pretty easy to work with) so you can't really tell it was damaged unless you look closely. It also allowed me to take a good look at the internal components and find out that the ex-boyfriend who built it for her cheaped out on the PSU (a $2000 computer with a $20 PSU :wall:). Here's a computer tip for everyone: Good PSU = stable power = happy computer.



On the plus side, the pain in my knee and lower leg means I'm going to spend a lot of time on the couch. That means I can get a fair bit of mining in tonight without feeling guilty for not cleaning the kitchen. :lol: I think I'm going to give mining gold/silver in the the Crafting Guild a try for a little bit. I've been curious to see how good/bad it is. I figure at worst, I will have either made some cash from the ores or some Smithing Xp from making bars (and a lot less cash).



Crafting Guild or powermining iron, either way I'm hoping to make level 89 by next weekend.



Great blog ~ I laughed out loud at the IRL info. =D>


Lol. Thanks. I please to aim. :D

I'm glad everyone has been having as much fun with this blog as I have.

Thanks, but I'm not quite there yet. :<img src=:' />

I still have 140k Xp to go. I've had a couple of long days at work this week, but I'm on pace to make it by Friday.



I've also found a better way to keep training while at work. Well, maybe not better but definitely less frustrating. With the slow speed of the wireless aircard, I experience frequent temporary communication losses making trying to powermine extremely frustrating. I've started mining rune essence during the day. This allows for two things: one, I continue mining even when communication is lost; and two, I'm beginning to stockpile essence so I can train my Runecrafting. Besides that, I don't have to look at the same mine all the time. :D



I've decided that when I reach 92 Mining I'm going to take a small break and get my Runecrafting up to 50. I've decided to do this at level 92 as it is, Xp-wise, the half-way point of my quest. I want 50 Runecrafting so I can give GOP a try and maybe get some blue runecrafter robes to go with my mask.



It's going to take a couple of more weeks to get to 92 Mining, so I've got plenty of time to build up my pile of ess.

Level 89 baby! Boo Yah! :twss:

I do love to mine!


So with 10 levels yet to go, my will remains strong and my vision focused. The climb is difficult, but the rewards are great.



I've also had great success with mining rune essence. Much more than I expected in fact. I've mined 10100 ess in a week! :shock: More than half of what I need. At this rate, I'll have it all and be able to start training Runecrafting by the end of next week. Hopefully I can get enough training done on my lunch breaks at work that I won't have to dedicate to much time to it, if any at all, after I get to 92 Mining. Then I can GOP and get some runecrafter's robes as a reward to myself. :D



I've been leaving trade turned off because while I haven't been getting as many gf requests, everyone wants to trade with me since I got my mask. I had one person stand there repeating "trade" for like two minutes. I tried to ignore him but finally I said "why?"



Him - Mask

Me - What about it?

Him - Trade to me

Me - Why?

Him - Trade to me. I buy.

Me - Sorry not for sale.

Him - Plz

Him - Plz

Him - Plz

Me - No

Him - Plz

Him - I give 958 coins

Me - lololololol...it's worth 12.5 million!

Him - scammer noob i report you




He then called me a scammer and a noob for several minutes and then said that he would not report me if I gave him the mask. Oy. :roll: I guess he didn't realize that even if I did believe him, or was for one second worried about being reported, that I couldn't simply give him the mask. :lol: Maybe I should start turning my public chat off as well.



Oh well. I've got 504k Xp to level 90. Hopefully I can get a lot done this weekend.

Wow, this mining quest is going fast! Hoping to see you get mining 92 soon (and 50 Runecrafting too).



Gop is surely more fun than clicking to mine or rc. And the rc robes are hawt \<img src=/' /> (though I don't have them lol)
