I created this account around February time, and I've finally decided to make a thread for it.

This account is what is known as DIY. That means I try and do everything myself without aid from other players.
This means I can't;
- Trade other players (except for in the two quests Shield Of Arrav and Heroes Quest)
- Use the grand exchange
- Assist/get assisted from other players
- Use other peoples houses
- Pick up others drops

Some players take it to extreme and don't allow themselves other things but I have allowed myself too;
- Play team-based minigames
- Dungeoneer in teams (I will however only bind things that I have made myself)
- Use NPC owned shops




Here are the starting stats for my blog:

Current goals:

1) 1500 total level

2) 200 questpoints

Thanks, I might post a bank picture later today when I clean it a bit because it's mainly just junk atm.



Been Dungeoneering all morning and just hit level 40.

Just finished What Lies Below and got 38 Runecrafting from the reward, but I forgot to get pictures.
Now I'm gonna mine 1k pure essence and see what level I can get using that at ZMI altar.

ZMI'ed to 39 Runecrafting using up only 200 pure essence. 39 was the last requirement for Elemental Workshop IV so I went and did that quest, getting 41 Runecrafting from the reward and I made a chaos shield which I can use at 50 Defence.
Today I trained Hunter to 35 so my Tears Of could go on Summoning, which I then did and got 37 Summoning.

Now I'm gonna do some Slayer to get it to level 40 and Defence to level 50 then I'll go back to ZMI.

Finished my task of 118 Banshees and got 50 Defence and 40 Slayer, I then got a new task of 98 mogres but Slayers on hold for a while now.
I then did my circus and penguins getting 51 Magic from circus and 38 Herblore from penguins which means I can make prayer potions which will help a lot in questing.

Here's my plans to do over this weekend:
1) ZMI to 44 Runecrafting
2) Mine 2k pure essence and make 2k nature runes
3) Mine 2k iron ore and superheat it all with the 2k nature runes
4) Make the 2k iron bars into 10k iron knives for Ranged

During that I'll get 44 Runecrafting to make nature runes and hopefully 55 Magic to high-alch.

gl with your little list of goals^^
but uhh why knives over darts? i always wondered myself why i chose knives when you can get double the ammo if you went darts :o
i think i just did it for the smith/mining xp and always thought they were faster/hit harder

but ive had countless people tell me theyre the same-__-

Thanks, and I decided to research darts vs knives and i've found that knives are stronger, dart fire at 2.5 times faster. Also you make 5 more darts per bar then knives but you need to add feathers.
I've decided I'll use darts instead of knives.

2) Mine 1k pure essence and make 1k nature runes
3) Mine 1k iron ore and superheat it all with the 1k nature runes
4) Make the 1k iron bars into 10k iron darts for Ranged

Gonna use rings of forging for the rest of my iron bars because mining pure essence/making nature runes = yawn and I'd rather keep the natures for high-alching.

Thanks, I wasn't gonna start this account till I maxed my main but I was a long way from maxing and got really bored so went ahead and made this account.


Very nice =D Keep up the good work!


Thanks.




Finally finished my 10k iron darts. Got 55 Mining whilst getting the ore and 50 Fletching from adding the feathers. Now with those darts I'm gonna camp fire giants for a rune scimitar and kite shield then go camp something that drops hard clues in hopes for a rune hatchet as a clue reward.

Got to 55 Ranged at fire giants without any decent drops so I gave up.
I'm gonna do Slayer for a bit and maybe get it to 52 so I can kill jellies for rune full helms and clues.

i want the spirit shield from Summers End but to do that quest I need 55 Prayer, so yesterday I went and did, Spirit Of Summer and then penguins which put me at 47 Prayer and 1200 total level. I then did One Small Favour and put both xp lamps on Prayer getting 49 which was bumped to 50 by ecto-ing some big bones from my mogre slayer task. 50 Prayer ment I could access the forgotten cemetary spirit portal which I did netting me 15k Prayer xp so I ended up on 51 Prayer.
I'm not sure how I'll finish 55 Prayer, probably just finish any quests that give Prayer xp as a reward and ecto-ing all big bones and up from slayer tasks.

Also did Zogre Flesh Eaters and A Tail Of Two Cats quests but forgot to get pictures.
I've worked out, if I do Rum Deal, then Cabin Fever and then The Great Brain Robbery, the rewards will put me at about 3k xp away from 55 Prayer.

Decided to finally finish Seer's easy tasks, had to start Royal Trouble to do it and decided to just finish the quest. Got 52 Constitution, 47 Agility and 44 Slayr from rewards for the quest, then I got 40 Summoning from the lamp for finishing the tasks.

I'm enjoying this blog. Are you going with buying/selling from npc shops or not?

Yeh, i'm buying and selling with NPC owned shops, otherwise it'd be very hard to get some basic tools, and i wouldn't be able to train Summoning.

My goal atm is to slay and do every clue scroll I get until I get a rune hatchet, because i'm fed up of using my mithril one.
