What do you believe the longest skill is?

It's obviously narrowed down to:



Slayer

Runecrafting

Farming





I'd like to clear this up.. It's getting on my nerves wondering to.

Define long. Farming certainly does take long in the sense of weeks, but actually has a very high xp/hour rate.



Slayer is slower average xp than runecrafting.

Slayer is the slowest there... But runecrafting in my opinion is the hardest.. Slayer at least have a nice variety and some people like doing the tasks, rc max the xp-hour very soon and is boring like hell.



Farming is not as hard as most people think.

Definitely Slayer, a good example of that is the rank 1 experience in the highscores, Slayer being the lowest. As well, Slayer has the lowest average experience per hour.

Mining is easily up to 50K/hr. Fishing/RC/Slayer/Farming are slower. Farming can get up to like 500K per day while you could easily get 700K+ mining with the same amount of playing.

Farming is really good and sometimes quick exp, trees and fruit trees give alot of exp each day, not to mention the other types of runs you can fit in.



I'd have to say Runecrafting is slower, but that's mainly just because I have a low level and I hate the skill A LOT. :wall:

I think slayer is the slowest, but also the most entertaining out of the three.

Takes about 5 minutes for a 65k xp mage tree run, 780k xp/h. So yeah it could be that fast if you have the money to spend.



And no, you can't get up to 500k farming xp/day. I got 416k xp once, planting everything even a spirit tree and torstols, using some penguin points etc. Just wasting money on expensive trees etc you get about 200-250k/day.

I'd have to say in terms of total time, Slayer, but in my opinion, RC is harder.

I'm pretty sure Dj means exp/hr during the hour when you harvest, however you are getting 0exp/hr for the rest of the time, unless you play vinesweeper.



Slayer is slowest, mining is actually relatively fast, and without a doubt faster than those 3. (I'm not entirely sure on ZMI exp rates.)

actually, mining is slower than ZMI (but just ZMI). ZMI is ~60k/hr

Isn't that the same if you use mousekeys and titan at granite?



Though I'll hand this to you because 60k exp/hr for mining would need alot more concentration.

I'm skeptical of 60k/hour at ZMI, however slayer is the slowest and I don't think that can really be disputed.



Farming is incredibly fast in exp/hour.

I would have to say Slayer, although most people take longer to get runecrafting due to the montony of the skill itself.

In terms of time, slayer. In terms of feeling like it's taking forever, runecrafting.

Slayer, rc, and summoning are the only ones that haven't been maxed... Summoning is still fairly new so that's out of the picture... I'd say slayer :/
