Just read the first one. I'd just like to point out that Prayer is similar in phraseology as Magic or Attack, it's a field of study rather than meaning "someone who prays", unlike Hunter or Slayer. Other than that, I still agree with the idea, it should be "Hunting" and "Slaying".

Oh, and I agree with the rest of the first article. "Hunting" needs an update, because it's got a lot of unrealised potential.

This. It doesn't help that the skill has very little mid or high level content, so a lot of the really unique features get ignored (Notably, tracking). It doesn't help that most of the time, you don't need the thousands of items you get from normal training, or they aren't implemented well enough to make them worth taking (Spiked vambraces! ...Except that RFD gloves exist and are probably easier to get. Barbed harpoons! ...Turned into a joke item because of the toolbelt. Repairing gloves of silence? It's actually cheaper and easier to just make a new pair).

Honestly haircuts in general are quite expensive. I guess it depends where you go though. A haircut for me is about $100 which = £64.

Mine's 6 euroes or free, depending how short I desire it :)

Anywho, as for my own article, the hunting skill isn't the only thing with unrealised potential... If I had more time to write it (mostly my own fault) the article would probably have been better... I therefore apologise in advance if it feels that I've performed sub-par on this one...

But I'm willing to make up for it here in the discussion thread :)

I am male :P I suppose it was just London... and my hair being the length it was of course.

Cuz it's the act of fishing, just like its the act of crafting, smithing, farming, etc, etc...

But if that is all you took away from my article, I definitely need to change the subject for next time ;)

My haircuts costs about SEK 250 = $35. I am a male though. But really, $100 for a haircut, Tripsis...? You must be crazy. Change your hairdresser, and do it NOW.

OT: I read the first two articles, and I think that they both are well-written. I agree with the first article, that hunter would become much more interesting if Jagex decided to make it more like real-world hunting. Also, a name change would be great!
The second article is good too, indeed mid levels haven't recieved as much updates as the other two level-groups. This is probably because the high-level player group have been raising their voices in the past, complaining about the small amount of updates for them. Jagex listened to them. Now it is time for the mid-level players to do the same thing.

The hunter analysis is all fine and good until the P.S. Is it inconsistent? Perhaps. Is that necessarily bad? No. Is it broken? No. Don't "fix" it then.

Anyway... I like how that part of the article seems to have prompted more discussion than the rest of it...

I do also agree that the skill is well varied.

^less discussion tends to mean more agreement...

But so far article vs the PS bit is equally mentioned...

Just read the first one. I'd just like to point out that Prayer is similar in phraseology as Magic or Attack, it's a field of study rather than meaning "someone who prays", unlike Hunter or Slayer. Other than that, I still agree with the idea, it should be "Hunting" and "Slaying".

Oh, and I agree with the rest of the first article. "Hunting" needs an update, because it's got a lot of unrealised potential.

I agree with the article, but I have to say I prefer "Slayer" and "Prayer". Mostly because the "er" sounds more manly then the "ing".

I think it should be Praying and slaying, since that is what you do when you perform the skills. But I don't think Jagex will change the names of the skill now, so many years after their release...

They'll change it if they need to. From Hitpoints to Constitution showed that.
