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

I'd say 99 is a acomplishment you should be proud of, i thought about it before when i was 70 strength and i leveled to 80 and went like: Bah, to hard.



Its a really hard achievement dude, also 99 strength arent the most common. The most common skillcapes is cooking and woodcutting. But that doesn't mean their like 1 week of hard work! its several months of slavery.

I bet you there are only around 10-20k active playing accounts with 99 strength. A lot of people with 99 strength quit when they found out they couldn't pk/stake.



You also have to take into consideration that probably 70k of those people trained well over half of their strength when Pest Control was overpowered.

Be proud of something you have (or will) accomplish. The argument that since so many people have it devalues it i don't think should be valid. If i have a kid i shouldn't feel proud because so many other people have them? If i bought a house i shouldn't feel proud because everyone else has one?



Just because people are not envious of something you have doesn't make it any less of an achievement. Just be proud of what YOU have accomplished. Don't judge yourself by other people's standards, judge yourself by your own.



Also take a look at why you or anyone is proud of something. Is it because it shows how hard they worked or are they only getting it to show off? A lot of people these days get things only because other people don't have them, not that they actually want it.

99 strength is an awesome achievement - congratulations. Your friend is in the minority - most are in awe of any 99 stat.



I got 99 ranging after about 3 years playing, getting up to 77 in f2p, then 77-96 doing fire giants, then some avianse/chining from 97-99. I had people say it wasn't a real one because I used chins! I ignored them, and felt better for doing so :)



Revel in your new found cape, and show off as often as you like. No matter what it is, no-one can take it away from you. You earned it, and deserve all the recognition you will get from it.

in a word, yes.



you should be proud and excited every time you accomplish a goal. Remember, many people may have 99 strength, but ALOT do not.

I was happy when I got a firecape, and showed it off to my friends. Yes, a lot of people have a firecape, but I died 4 times on Jad and I kept going, and finally got it. I was pretty proud of my achievement, even though it was small. Same thing with a lesser extent with void, it took me hours to get, and I was happy when I got it. 2000 total and 99 HP where much bigger achievements to me, so I was a lot happier about them, however, that doesn't mean my lowly firecape wasn't an achievement anymore. Any 99 is tough, some more then others, but even 99 cook is an achievement.

99 str is the still the accomplishment regardless of the number of people who have it.. think of it like this.. how many doctors/former doctors are there in this world? it's only going to add up.. it's not like once you get it someone loses 99 strength.



my issue with it is that combat is SO easy to train nowadays. you can seriously get over 100k/hr and iv'e heard stories of 200k+ or whatever. i got 99 attack training with a rune scimmy at ice warriors in the wilderness and later 99 str and def in the axe hut with a dragon long, with the former nailing me max 20k an hour in att xp and the latter getting me 30-40k an hour if i was lucky (no afk pkers)



this is actually unlike becoming a doctor as medical schools are becoming more competitive and residency programs more grueling and intensive (although some would beg to differ)



in any case, good job

It's not the result of one's life that's important. It's the day-to-day concerns, the personal victories, and the celebration of life... and love. It's enough if people are able to experience the joy that each day can bring.




(The bolded parts) In other words, it doesn't matter how many people may have achieved this particular 99

it is still something that you yourself have achieved. Even further, is that if you had a party of some sort your

friends were able to enjoy that experience as well.



If anyone ever comes up to you and belittles your achievement just say, "golly gee whiz go [bleep] yourself".

I've tried to buy 99s in the past, like 200k feathers for shilo fishing, or the logs needed for 99 fletching, and it was hell. I had trouble just getting 75 cooking, the only reason I've got 79 is thanks to a pair of brawlers.



A 99 is a 99, no matter what skill it is in, 13m xp is NOT easy, and those that say it is are normally jealous, or just a muppet.



On another note, 99 str?! Ewwwww! :twisted:



Should have gone to spe... I mean, got attack ;)

Any 99 is an achievement if you worked hard to get it and at least 99 STR will have its uses unlike many others.

Anyone who says its easy and don't have themselves, is contradicting and they are probably just jealous.



GL with 99 :thumbsup: .



Its probably going to be my next on the way to maxing combat anyway... When i get the time...

Who cares anyway? A 99 is still a 99, regardless of what skill it is.

You should be proud of whichever 99 you get, as they are ALL tedious.

Mind you, people laugh at Cooking and Fletching capes, even though Strength is the most common.

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


You stole what I was going to say!!

OT: Don't worry, it might be common, but any 99 is a 99, and shows dedication :<img src=:' />

That is because a 99 isn't a 99.



Str is a skill that's useful and liked. Cooking and fletching are more the opposite. I mean, you click cook x and do something else for 2 minutes. If you like the skill because of that, that is because you actually like the afk part, ie the part NOT regarding runescape. It means you like wathcing youtube videos and such.



a 99 isn't a 99.



you should feel happy because you can now hit the max you possibly can. You shouldn't ask for respect or anything.

Even though it's pretty much the most common skillcape. It's still a nice achievement to get one.

Proud owner of the following skillcapes: Defence, Hitpoints, Strength, Attack, Magic, Summoning, Ranged, Slayer, Prayer and Herblore.
I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.
