If 99 str is so common, should I feel proud to get it?

I am currently 70k exp from 99 strength.

I told my clan members, and one of them said-



"Sorry to say man, but 99 strength is so common, I see at least 20 people with a cape everyday, I even saw 10 people perform the str cape emote in a single line." Clan member-



I'm not demoralized by the guy, but the thought popped up in my mind.



Well, there are 80,000 people(estimate) with a str cape, it wouldn't matter would it?



But if I think of the effort I put in the skill, it's worth it.



My friend said that 13million exp is not easy, and even if it's "common" it's still hard.



Anyone got their thoughts on this?



(P.S. I am waiting to get off school to finish this gap, and finally use my whip after leaving it in the bank for 1 month.) :thumbsup:

It's the most popular and common of combat achievement capes. If you wanted to feel special, should've gone for defense.

99 Strength is still a good achievement. If it upsets you enough, max out your combat stats + HP.

It was your decision to train this skill to 99, just because 80,000+ people have it doesn't mean that they didn't work hard for their capes. Anyone who doesn't agree with me shall be crucified :mrgreen:

Getting 99 strength, is just as good as getting 99 Attack or Defense, who care's if it's more popular, if it's something that you wanted and set out to achieve you should feel proud to accomplish your goal.

A 99 is a 99. Don't bother with what other people think. :)

Should you feel proud? No, dude, you played a game for a long time. Should you feel happy? Sure. Hey, I'd like to have 99 strength! Gratz!

Another 99 topic...I hate these threads.



Anyhow here's my advice:



Get whatever 99 skill that you like. Don't get something that's rare or common, GET WHAT YOU LIKE!



I got 99 defence as the 1st 99, i love the skill hell alot more than the cape..



Even if it was common i wouldn't care.

It's your achievement, not theirs.




Who cares what others say, if you feel proud about it be proud about it. It's your character not theirs.

This alone makes 99 str a good idea. Although controlled is better, some people simply do not like it. If that's the case, you wanna dump the d scim/sara sword asap.



Of course you should be proud. I have 2 99s, both are insanely common (str and cook). I'm still proud of them, and I regret neither. But eventually, I'll have to get a more impressive one, but that's simply the drive I have.

99 strength is awesome, who cares what your clan member thinks. the best thing about 99 strength is that you never have to touch a dragon scimmy again.

It's very common, but that is because it is so useful and fun. Who doesnt want to hit as high as he can?



With cooking, fletching and firemaking, the case is different. Nearly everyone gets those because they want a skill cape.



99 str represents the old view towards skills for me, pre-skill capes. Back then, already quite a few people had 99 str, but because they liked it, not because of some stupid emote/cape.



So in answer to your question: you can feel a lil proud, cause timewise, it's still a very long way. However, I think you shouldn't be training that skill to be proud or to get respect, you should train it cause you like to hit the max you can, or because you like training it.

Just feel proud about yourself. It's your achievement, and if you think it cost you a lot of time and dedication, then you can be proud of yourselves. Just don't expect any respect for it, because indeed, it's extremely common, so you can't expect anyone to marvel at your strength cape.

Unless it's Firemaking and you have a bunch of fm brawlers...



Anyway, 80,000 people have the cape, millions don't.

I would hardly say it's "common" -- it's still a very impressive achievement, and if it does bother you, but you want it, max out def or attack later.
