~~~ 99 Construction ~~~ 56k warning

Recommended Posts

140m spent.

 

200k oak planks.

 

98 Levels.

 

72 hours of training.

 

30 Rooms.

 

6m in Butler fees.

 

2 Glorious Crystal Thrones.

 

1 Amazing Goal.

 

 

 

Well, I have quiet a story. As some of you remember, or care about, I managed a solo Armadyl Hilt back when they were 141m, the day of the trade restrictions. It changed my RS career. With that money, I went from 64-70 construction, so I could build a gilded alter. Well, later, I had 60m left over from that hilt, and no idea what to do with it. I decided to achieve 90 Construction, an a crystal throne. I found the skill very enjoyable, and quickly fell in love with designing, gathering materials, and building my house into a mansion. Once I reached my goal of 90, I deiced not to train it again: I thought I had achieved my goal.

 

Nearly a year later, I remember the skill. How much fun I had with it, and how much I loved it. I thought to myself, "For a joke, lets see how much it would cost." 55m for the planks, and even more for butler fees. Bloody hell, why not? I fired up the old Kree'arra solo'ing techniques, and was off to attempt to raise 60m. I managed to raise 10m to buy 92 before becoming broke again. There was no way in hell I could mine 60m worth of runite, so down into the dungeon I went. I quickly realized how costly trips were. I was using 220k worth of supplies atleast, for only 4-6 kills, and the odds of a drop were miniscule. I looked around the rest of the world, trying to find a viable combat option for money. The answer came in the form of Tormented Demons. I had to raise some 31 QP, but I was down the in lair where the Stone once was, and slaying the Demons. After losing my Void melee and range, I find my rhythm for the killing, and find myself with a Claw drop. Celebrate! 96 Construction banked! Training is tedious, but fast. Still, I needed a break, so I went back down to TD's. Low-and-behold, after a handful of kills, I am granted with my second Claws. There's 99! Now I just need the time and focus, something I haven't been known for having. Still, thanks to my clan chat, I made it. Onto the levels. No SC tools, no Mahogany Tables, no Demon Butler, no mousekeys. Good old fashion training.

This is without a doubt, my favorite achievement to date. I've worked extremely hard for it, and it has all paid off. I have a House Design that, if you would like to see/play in, come to world 31 Rimmington anytime soon, or just PM me. I dunno what is next. I'll be hosting house parties in world 31, but, more importantly, I have exams soon, as well as a Summer to look forward too.

 

 

 

Thank you for reading. I really do appreciate it, and I hope that I inspire somebody to go for a crazy goal, or do what they want, because it's all about fun. As long as you have fun, you are doing what you love.

I love the story :) It reminds me a bit of myself actually. Particularly when you said "For a joke, lets see how much it would cost." Achieving 99 is so satisfying when once upon a time it felt like it would be impossible to obtain.

 

 

 

Congratulations - it's one of the most fun/unique 99s in my opinion :) 10/10.
