First 99 @ 2001 Total - Now top 500


Recommended Posts

So, the journey has finally ended. After nearly 3 years of on and off play (and a lot of farming!), I have finally achieved my dream goal: 99 Herblore. This has been an agonizing, yet very fun journey. I've put so much effort into this, and this feeling of accomplishment is quite amazing. Every time I heard that someone "wasted 150 mil on 99 herb," I almost threw up. This skill means a lot to me, much more than some cape. Even though I don't post on Tip.It much, I've been here awhile and I've checked the RMT forum daily for motivation. I've posted a few of my achievements here, but nothing like this.

 

 

 

2,645th to 99 Herblore

 

 

 

Money Making - I have never had more than 10 mil in gold, with my maximum bank value being around 25 mil at best. Constant farming and full use of the free daily money (Battlestaffs, flax, sand, and seaweed + pineapples) funded most of my Herblore. Even little things such as thieving from the Ardy Gem Stall every Herb Run and Picking Coconuts from my 2 Palm Trees helped fund 99 Herblore. It's hard to estimate a total value of 99, but I'd say it cost me around 60 mil, even with 6 million xp from Farming. 97-99 cost 18 million alone. I have never gained any of this money through pking, merching, staking, 26king, etc... it has come mostly from Runecrafting and Farming.

 

 

 

Finally, here are some pictures!

 

 

 

99 Herblore: (ignore my one friend, he's just a skater punk from California that talks trash, but he's a cool guy when he doesn't swear! He thought it would be funny to post something like that.)

I'd just like to say a thank you and congratulations to everyone who has posted a achievement topic over these past three years, they have really kept me motivated! I love to see people completing their goal.

 

 

 

As for what's next? I am not quite sure. All 80+ stats and 99 Farming are a good possibility. If i ever managed 99 Farming, I would have my perfect RS account. I feel no need or have no want to max - just work on the two skills I've always had a passion for, Herblore and Farming.

 

 

 

Thank you for looking, even if you don't post =).

 

 

 

Edit:

 

So I've continued to do herblore and farming, and within a week of 99 Herblore I have now achieved top 500 in it!

A wonderful story? Ok. I just don't really get when people say "great story!", but whatever.

 

 

 

10\10 Easily. Herblore is a really fun skill and I'm glad someone else appreciates it. I'm only 80 right now, but I hope to go for 90 after 90 Construction. Best of luck on 99 Farm. (I assume you're going for that.)

I have all the 99s, and have been playing since 2001. Comped 4/30/15

Definitely deserves a 10/10. Very expensive skill and instead of buying it, you trained it maybe not the fastest way but the most fun. I would love to have 99 Herblore anyday and I think you've done a great job. Also, you're now my rolemodel ^^

 

 

 

You're like an inspiration if you like :P

 

 

 

Grats.
