Setting Goals


Grogthurk

Recommended Posts

I have a hard time getting motivated to stick to any skill on this game.

 

 

 

I do slayer to kill time while I'm thinking of what to do next, but at the same time once I make it a goal I want to do something else.

 

 

 

What do you guys do when setting goals?

 

 

 

 

 

Also, how long do you think it would take getting 85 slayer playing around...20h a week? 68 slayer now...I'll post stats

If you are not motivated to invest in skills, try minigames.

 

 

 

If it is more general, and you are losing intrest for RS alltogether, quit. find another game/hobby/time sink. Come back when you get bored with that.

You think getting 85 attack, then str, then def would be a good goal?

 

 

 

Then I could train with whip on controlled and they'd be about the same level.

 

 

 

I love Runescape, just staying motivated to one task is hard.

yess it is a gud goal...i would say do it along side of slayer...and if u get bored of slayer go for normal mob grinding...this way u can swing bak and forth between slayer or casual training

Try figuring out new ways to do your everyday tasks.

 

 

 

For example, I did Black demons (melee) without prayer. It was fun to see the results. I also ranged Fire Giants at Waterfall while using a cannon, attacking nearly every giant in the melee room. That was fun as well, and also fun to see the reactions of some people.

 

 

 

Cannon is ftw, just remember that.

I find it easier to set various smaller skills on things I haven't done in a while. It helps kill boredom.

 

 

 

Example:

 

I did Garden of Tranquility. After I was like "hmm that wasn't so bad; let's do more farming. Ranarrs are good money anyways" and then set my goal to something I knew I could achieve through sweetcorn, strawberries, etc. I even did a little more after my goal because I was having fun with it

 

 

 

Choose something you know you can achieve but more importantly you find fun otherwise you will get bored.

I just get really excited about like "YEAH I CAN GET 99 COOKING ONLY 4M LOSS WOO WOO" then I start to do it and I'm like...f this.

 

 

 

I thought maybe I should just grab a couple levels every now and then, I'm in no rush to 99 anything.

lol dat piss ppl off

 

 

 

Are you killing Fire Giants for yourself, or for random strangers?

 

 

 

The cannon is just like any other weapon. Not using a cannon would be like giving up a weapon. If someone was annoyed because you were killing Fire Giants too fast with a whip and he couldn't get any for himself, would you give up your whip to make it "fair"? No.

Would that be good for doing them as a task?

 

 

 

Cannoning fire giants? It's fantastic.

 

 

 

If you're in a single combat area, but you are ranging from a safespot, the cannon treats the area like it is multicombat and still shoots everything, even more than 1 monster. You can apply this to almost EVERY task. For example, you can do the same with Black Demons at Taverly Dungeon, or Hellhounds. In this way, very few tasks are "uncannonable". You should bring a cannon to every task. The only exceptions are tasks you MUST use the CTs, Slayer Tower, or GWD area to do. However, if there's an alternative location, cannon them there. You won't regret the speed.

I STRONGLY recommend you at least try cannoning them. Essentially, it's ranging them with a bit more cost and like 4x-6x faster. It's pretty basic. You set up the cannon south of the table in the Waterfall melee room. Then you use the south safespot (one with the door) the ENTIRE time (even if they're unaggressive). Then you load up the cannon, fire it, go to the safespot, and pick a giant. When it's out of ammo, rinse and repeat.

 

 

 

Just note that if you are attacked by 1 giant, the cannon will stop cannoning all the giants and focus only on the one that's hitting you. So it ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that you stay in the safespot for as long as you can. Waste bolts if you have to. (Although there are times when you can't help being hit, such as when you're reloading or grabbing charms.)

I am a classic case of doing whatever I feel like...

 

 

 

This left me with almost leveled wc, mining, crafting, fletching, runecrafting, magic, you name it..

 

 

 

I did get myself to level some of the almost leveled skills using familiars, talking to friends in cc/pm and while fishing watching a tv show helps...

 

 

 

If I have a goal I really want to achieve I usually stick to that until I no longer feel like it, and I'll just do it later. I feel that's the best way to play as things ought to be fun, and for the die-hard "I-gotta-get-this-level-achieved!" fases, just watch some tv-shows on the side (for afk skills like fishing). As said, familiars help. :thumbsup:
