Aasi, I haven't once and will not go into any of the details of speculation on high level players, as, frankly, it's their own business and their own lives, thus i'm just sharing my opinion on the need(need is the good word to describe something you grind trough) to spend a huge chunk of your young(i assume most of the top players are between 20 and 30 years of age) lives trapped(a good example of afking) in front of a computer screen doing things that don't, in any way, help you have a healthy lifestyle, so while it's true that there are 14 more hours in the day, they need to be carefully catered to take care of everything else that you need in life, not to mention, most can't endure such a lifestyle while working or attending university. I don't see a no-lifer as being a fat guy in the basement, rather someone whose life is built around playing a computer game, and most of the decisions they make result from that, and i do understand that it's possible to endure a healthy lifestyle while keeping up such high hours in front of computers, but it's certainly not easy, and more often than not, the part that suffers the most is your social life- and i don't mean one behind a computer screen.

That said, I'm not a great fan of watching my avatar chop ivy whilst I sit there and do nothing but stare vacantly. When you play anything on the Xbox, your skills are constantly being utilised because you constantly have to input commands. With RuneScape sometimes you just click and watch, which is basically the same as sitting in a room and staring at a wall when you think about it.

Afkable methods are usually a choice, with usually other methods existing that are more interaction and also more Xp/hr.

It's my style, always has been, always will be, and as i'm not working on a degree in anything literature related, it doesn't really matter.

I don't understand why some people here flame certain top players on the way they play the game. Whether it's efficient or relaxed it shouldn't concern you, just mind your own business :) I would rather play like Aasiwat, in a relaxed way so I don't burn out and end up like Zarfot. Although, if he quit for some other reason then my statement is irrelevant, it was just an example. The way Aasiwat plays seems pretty efficient if you ask me, keep in mind that he is ranked 1 in overall XP.

Like this hasn't been said thousand times before.. BUT. What do u actualy mean by ''using ur life better?'' From whose point of view? If you have alot freetime, no matter do you have work or go school or none, Why can't you use it for gaming if you find it enjoyable? Not everyone wants to have your megauberlifestyle with girlfriend and gym, like WTF?

 

If I don't care crap about family, girlfriend or gym, why do you think I would like to have these things in my life?

 

This post was for teamed

 

Not caring a crap about family/the other sex? Lol, those people hopefully don't exist..

xpx is starting to sound like one of the level 80s who flame all high levels for being fat nerds. And what does 'being successful in life' however you may see it have to do with this? Not everyone needs to, or wants to have a full time job at a specific point in their lives, nor is it the only criteria for being successful. And while you keep coming with your efficiency stories I will be happy to spend time further improving my physical condition, filling the gaps in my knowledge and having a non-obsessive mindset towards video game efficiency, so keep it up. :thumbup:

 

Just some simple maths:

 

Amount of hours in a day: 24

Amount of hours spent sleeping on average: 8

Amount of hours spent awake: 24-8=16

Assumed amount of hours played: 10 (somewhat accurate in my case)

Amount of hours left for other activities: 16-10=6

 

Additionally, being able to do other things during the hours spent playing if you don't go full concentration.

 

Sometimes the way someone WANTS to spend their life isn't healthy. Not working and spending those 8/9/10 hours you'd work playing a game is not healthy, period. Being healthy is eating healthy, going to the gym and/or doing Multiple sports, have a girl/boyfriend, have a lot of social contacts etc. Sad but true is 95% of the top players do not have anything mentioned of the above. Might still be good for them to do what they want, does not mean it's healthy.

I agreed with the first sentence, but stopped when you started to describe the stereotypic life as the standard.

Healthy in my opinion is a good mix of everything, and having a balanced life. When you play 10h a day, this mostly isn't the case, but there can be exceptions. But by all means, please don't tell everyone to go to the gym, frantically find a girlfriend, doing *multiple* sports, having *lots* of social contacts. Damn, you are giving everyone a lot of pressure... Sad but true is 95% of the world doesn't have this healthy life you described.

 

?

well, OVER 50% of the almost 7 billion people on Earth Do have a relationship, friends, do sports tbh..

You guys all seem to forget that most people spend most of their days WORKING. Many jobs these days are deskjobs, meaning they're sitting down all day for hours, just like any RuneScaper. When people aren't at their jobs, they usually have to spend time commuting to and from work, and then taking care of any kids they may have. They get similar amounts of free time as many RuneScapers who have no responsibilities and only play RS. So in terms of hours, I don't see any difference.

 

Let's examine the social aspect. I personally spend my time on RuneScape socializing with my clan while I play my Agility game. Aasiwat runs his own clan as well. To claim that to play RuneScape a lot would get you thrown out of social circles is ridiculous, as socializing in any way is still socializing. Irl is not any more "healthier" than over a pixelated game. In fact, I find that people can be more open when talking online than irl.

 

Now how about the stress aspect? If you want to go work a 9-5 job and take care of kids, I'm sure your life would be quite a paradise. Most people hate their jobs, and with a boss constantly ordering you to do this/do that while you try to do it without messing up and pleasing them(brown nosing when forced to maintain your job is fun, right?) is hardly going to make you not have stress moments sometimes. Playing RuneScape CASUALLY(yes, even almost all top players are actually relaxed when doing it, not uptight about being ubermegaproefficient) won't generate a lot of stress, if any.

 

As I see it, the proposed "normal life" is less healthy than a "RuneScape" life. :P

we have social contact why do you think jagex gave us friends list.

 

Yes that was semi sarcastic but still legitimate especially in clans and such you can build long lasting good friendships there

A lot of these reasons are very self-centered. I think you can't argue about someone's personal preferences and desires, but you can argue about their role in society. Yes, you can end up with a crappy job making minimal wage, but there is always potential that if you have goals, like you do in this game, and apply yourself you can do something that is not just ordinary. Yes it is highly unlikely, but it never hurts to give it a chance. This drive and motivation that the top players exhibit in the game is special. If they find something they enjoy outside this game and use apply drive, they can make a dent on this world. Again this all hypothetical, but I just feel that everyone that has promise, should not be scared to find out if they can achieve their potential by playing a game and not concerning themselves with stuff that truly matters.

 

Side Note: I personally enjoy watching this race, and I agree everything in life should not be serious. Runescape is not a life focus, it should be a relaxing break like some of the people above have said.

I didn't claim it was easy, I claimed it was pretty easy when you finished university, afaik a cabbageload of the people here become a doctor, 7000 euros, easily. ~3000-3500 euros for a vet, and so on.. If you're going to do something with mathematics/art/medical stuff it's pretty easy to earn loaaaaaaads..

 

I lol'd @ doctor. You have to spend extra years in school, not making money, in order to even achieve what you're saying. And then once you're a doctor, you usually will have to work ridiculously long hours and be around sick people often. I'm sure that lifestyle is extremely more healthy, right???

Lmao I find it hilarious to see the amount of arrogance in people for them to straight up say that someone else's point of view is wrong. I am not taking anybodies side as personally I play very little if at all, however as being an educated person I can see both sides of the situation. However coming from a lot of these comments I don't think many people can. Just because you don't agree with someone's point of view doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong, specially one's such as what you should be doing with your personal time. For example the people that say keeping up with a social life, job, gym, girlfriend etc., at first the appeal may be awesome due to it's what we are conditioned to think is healthy and strive for. But at a closer look you can see that these people are not god's they might in fact be very unhealthy. That is because what do we define as health? The best optimum condition to live the longest, and highest quality of life possible I believe would work well. If you strive for all those things you might become stressed, or induce other problems. Also quality of life is determined by differently by everyone, so I see no reason for anyone to question someone's motives for living life the way they choose to.

 

What I am trying to say is, I find it ridiculous that even with the amount of education available today, we still live in a society where people are so arrogant they can only see their point, and still live in a black and white decision box (first year psychology metaphor). Living your life to the fullest is metaphorically like Beauty it is in the eye of the beholder.

Just like to point out your making an un-supported assumption that Zarfot burned out

You said there were a cabageload of jobs that earn over 10 000 euros, which kind of implies it is easy to find one...

 

I have yet to even think of a job that earns 10 000 euros right when you get of the university. The only one I could think of was a specialised doctor, who has to study 13 years before he can make the big money, but you just said that's only 7000.

 

Art makes money? Only if you are the best of the best of the best. Most people who studied art are dirt poor and have trouble finding well paid projects.

 

Maths/engineering etc? Makes pretty good money, if you get into a good componey, but NO WAY that you get payed over 4000 euro's a month at your start, let alone over 10 000, that's completely ridiculous.

 

 

Anyway, what I just wanted to say is: stop posting false info about the Netherlands. There's already enough people coming here with false hopes created by other people.

 

The father of my best friend does something with taxes, just finished secondary school (6 years of VWO) then a couple years of universitary and earns 12,000 euros a month and so 144,000 euros a year.

Rather that then playing games.

If he's the father of your friend, that means he's an older man which means he's very much likely had several jobs in the past. That means he has a lot of something called WORK EXPERIENCE. People are more likely to hire him than some kid freshly out of a university. Having that degree only raised what he'd normally get otherwise.

Btw, can we slow all of this rapid posting down? We've jumped up like 5 pages in the past 8 hours. I don't like wasting an hour or two catching up if I don't look at this thread for a day lol.

*Waits for a Langer update to put it back OT*

 

Any top players care to share their opinion on Effigies.

 

 

I suggest you check my adventurer's log

 

I got 3 effigies in an hour at cave crawls, and have been averaging 1.5 an hour. I don't know if my method yields many more kills than others or not or if I'm gettign extremely lucky but either way it's by far the best way to train

 

/e forgot you can't see the times lol, but I haven't heard of anyone getting these high rates although my sample size is only about 20 effigies

If you click the link in my sig it should explain the various methods for effigies. The theoretical drop rate should be around 1/650-1/750 which is 1 an hour or 65minutes.

 

I don't suppose you've logged your kills?

 

unfortunately it's impossible for me to log my kills because I'm ranging them with cannon (varied amounts of damage:ranged exp) but I have been recording my effigies per hour so far. I've seen your stastics before and if I decide to continue cave crawlers i'll likely be using dharoks, so I could defintely contribute.

 

Ps. I've been using void ranged with anti poison totem/steel titan , just fyi. IT works quite nicely only needed 2 ranged pots per inventory and no antis, but i'm not sure if it would be better than void deflector or not.
