Very surprised by Prayer. Hunter and Thieving are ahead of it! Not very surprised by Slayer. It has definitely become one of the most popular skills in the last year. Not surprised by Runecrafting, either. Slightly surprised to see Construction at number two.

To put it bluntly, [bleep] off.

Thief and Hunter are super-close, especially if you consider their release dates. And I had no idea Str was above cooking. wow.

Prayer surprises me actually...
I mean ok I'm F2p so it's way harder then p2p, but still.
Hunter is easy to train and stuff, ok it's a bit newer skill (and P2p only), but after all those years it shouldn't matter that much does it? :roll:
Prayer surprises me, all the others are +- expected.

That's because in P2P, gilded altar has a Bury-X function so it's much easier to train now.

That being said, why is Runecrafting the highest? I expected Construction and Summoning to be higher up...

Maybe this list has given me something to do... at last, a long term goal.

The swaps between herb and summoning and con and rc are pretty justified.

1. Summoning was only recently released, it will soon drop very far down the ranks, it would not be that high if it were released with all the other skills.

2. Same thing with rc and con, although furthermore the money sink in con has become less of a money sink for most ppl due to the massive amount of money in the game now.

Con and summoning will slip further and further. The top stable ones should always be rc herb and mining. And as time goes on, I do think mining will move to number 2.

Because Runecrafting caps out at 50k exp/hour and the more common method gives about 28k exp/hour. Construction can provide hundreds of exp/ hour with SC hammers and Summoning isn't a skill that most people actively train, but rather a skill they get with their 99 combat skills and Slayer.

Prayer was surprising, I thought it was far more rare.

Runecrafting & Construction was expected.

I'm also VERY pleased to see strength at the top since I despise the skill. <_<

Thieving and hunter are both surprises; I'd expect to see a lot more of them.

Just underscores how insanely combat-heavy Runescape is.

Wow at Strength, 21.6m xp and i'm still not in top 10,000 :(

Didn't know it was that popular :P

Runecrafting was predictable though!

Slightly surprised at the number of 99 slayers out there, definitely less impressive than it was just a year ago. Surprised that there are not more 99 firemakers out there... I mean with so much cash entering the game, fm brawlers and insane xp rates, I expected at least 60-70K players.

I expected also a lot more thiefs, goes to show that the skill is not very popular despite having one of the best xp rate out there.

Not surprised to see that RC is still and will be the rarest for a long time.

Wow, i'm surprised at how high Firemaking is compared to what I thought it was.. Also, more prayer than Hunter? o_o


Yeah that's exactly my thought .. How can a free, moneymaking skill like hunter be lower than prayer?

My irl mate got 99 rc yesterday :)

Add one 99 slayer. I got it today. :)

I guess mining 99 is still pretty rare because it must be boring and not entirely useful.

So now you can see from this chart that mining is easily the most difficult skill in Runescape. I imagine it will change greatly over the next year however, with the introduction of the new mines.

1593th to 99 Farming - July 08.

I personally have 99 Strength, Hitpoints, Defence and Attack (as well as Firemaking) for personal reasons. :P So, I'm not overly concerned about my 99s and neither should anyone else about theirs.

pay careful attention to mining. by the end of the year, it will be ranked 10th. mining has already gotten like another 500-600 "99ers" since the noob mines came out

con is 2nd because without hammers its really expensive (maybe 120m?) and not many people want to sit through endless hours of SC for the hammers.
