MTK/Farm your own herbs, collect your own seconds, exchange shards back for 70% of the money/shards back.

 

If you were smart you would have trained both summoning and Herb during the weekend for some nice exp at a fraction of the cost.

35 rune (the slowest skill, why bother training it?)

 

its one of the best constant money maker in the game, that's why you should bother training it.

 

also, firemaking is cheap and hell, and you profit off magic if you want too.


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.

It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

You say that member skills are slow to train althought hunter, farming and construction are very fast usually. Thieving will get faster once you get more levels. Fletching is generally fast, so agility, slayer and summ are the only ones left. And slayer can train up to 4 other skills at the same time.

Actually the only skill that REQUIRES lots of money to train is construction. Firemaking is really cheap, magic is easy to make money off of. Herblore can be a sink if you BUY your herbs, but who says you have to do that. For prayer, Dragon bones are real easy to get by yourself. Summoning pouches can be sold back for 70% return, so you don't lose a lot money overall for that skill.

 

As for skills being slow, at your level I seriously doubt it. If your skills were in the 60s or 70s then maybe you could complain that, but for low levels I don't buy it. You just need to find a more efficient way to train. After all, this game is about grinding levels, so might as well enjoy whatever skills you are training.

Herblore, Prayer and Summoning are money sinks, meaning they're designed to drain your cash. This is done on purpose because otherwise money would inflate so much we would be finding ourselves in an online version of Germany in the 1930's (in an economical way of course :rolleyes: )

Protip: Farm your herbs and then make pots with the herbs, you train both skill at the same time!

Protip #2: Seems like your problem is that you do not have enough money, L2makemoney!

Protip #3: Summoning is one of the useful if not the most useful skill in the ENTIRE GAME. Also there is just something wonderful about seeing something that is twice the size of you pummeling your enemies.

So you want every skill to be cheap, fast and easy so you can get 99 in the blink of an eye? Some skills are expensive, others are dreadfully slow and then there are some that are incredibly cheap or ridiculously fast/easy. Variety is good, and so is challenge. All the skills in RuneScape used to be MUCH harder; the game as a whole has only gotten easier/faster over the years. Adding onto what Gidion said, RuneScape is not a race. Enjoy the process and the journey because that's all there is. Once you're done, you're done. Read some guides on good training methods and have fun.

39 agiliity (soooooo slow) Not really if you train it right.

67 herb

41 thief (mem skills are always slow except for fletch, why is that?) Maybe it's because you're not training efficiently?

Nope summoning and construction are the only true money sink skills.

 

Prayer and herblore can't be brought via shops so there cost is 100% player driven.

Summoning and construction however require a direct use of gold to train.

 

TC your stats are terrible train those and the money will come naturally.

Why does everyone think that construction is expensive, using sc hammers it is quite honestly not that expensive. I had 99 banked before I decided to stop since the skill bored me to death.

This. Construction is by far one of the fastest skills to train. Stealing creation hammers speed the fast process even more and they dont cost anything. And buying oak logs and making planks from them only costs 320 gp for each plank. Because I know how to train Construction efficiently, I usually have way better con level than others from my level range.

 

Even faster is if you use teak planks. Costs a little bit more, but if you cut the logs yourself, you will most likely obtain special teak logs, which can be used to make full inventory of logs to planks for free. And even thought you would buy the logs, it still only costs about 600 gp per plank.

 

Making logs into planks actually makes profit if you sell the planks. You`ll get about 250 gp profit for teak planks and almost 300 gp for oak logs. Cutting the logs yourself will make minimum of 350 gp (because the random special logs can make logs for free.) for teak, and 370 gp for oak.

 

I may had gone off topic, but hey, post still contains solid facts and tips. And when it comes to construction, I always defend it, since I love the skill.

Well, construction isn't THAT cheap, still costs about 50m to achieve 99 with SC hammers. But definately cheaper than herb/summ/prayer.

 

Anyway, OP is totally correct that herblore has gotten insanely expensive, but oh well. Nobody is forcing you to train it, spend your money elsewhere.

I was 65 herblore a couple days ago... I got to 72 herblore in a few hours and made about 7M profit in the process. You don't have to make pots to get XP. Try cleaning herbs...

Fair enough.

I get dibs on Olly3c.

 

 

By the way, there is only one skill in all of runescape that cannot be fast/cheap/easy. Its called F2P prayer.

Costs 550 million, requires about a million clicks, and maxes out at around 20-30k xp / hour. Not to mention making money in F2P can be about 10x more difficult, so the cost balloons if you're comparing it to P2P.
