Hi everyone!
I recently decided to make myself a blog on here, partly because it will help me keep track of what I'm doing on RS, and partly after spending so many hours reading the blogs already on here. :)

About Me

 

Thank you for reading my blog, and any suggestions/feedback would be much appreciated :D I will be slowly improving this blog by adding photos etc, I just fancied getting it started first!

I will be playing and posting quite irregularly, depending on how much time I have :)

Good luck with your goals!

I like that you're saving effigies hehe. Trust me, you'll be glad you did later :wink:

Also, I can help you out with a frost setup when I get home that should help out well at your level.

Do some barrows! It's fun!

Basically, you want Drakens Medallion and Ardy Cloak 1+
Kill Barrows brothers, praying for every brother (polypore staff is good, but other attacks work fine)
Once you open the chest, ardy cloak to monastery, recharge pray, medallion back to barrows!
Every 7-8 chests, tele to Burgh and recharge medallion.

Good luck, do it now, I command you, good fight, you have to do it, I'm an EOE admin, I'm the boss, I'm light blue coloured, do as your told, kthxbai.

Thanks! I've seen your blog, and it did make me think about saving effigies :) and that would be really useful, most setups I've seen assume Overloads/SS/Yak, which is quite far out of my league :P

Thanks Draggle! I might try that too, if I'm honest I've only done Barrows once, and that was for a quest... :oops:

Thanks Dan, I am in the process of adding more pictures :D

More pictures, yeah! Nice blog start though. :)

More pictures will be coming :) but thanks!

Got quite a bit achieved, got 2 mining rocks, 1 RC and 1 hunter, leaving just 1 hunter rock to get this week. I caught all jadinkos this week too, getting me my 4th witchdoctor top - still looking for a placeholder for the bottom >.>

Yet another witchdoctor top...


However, used the vines to make some more potions, boosting my stock of Hunter, Fishing, Farming and Mining pots :)


I also decided to do some cooking, getting me these levels:
90 Cooking



Then I thought I would use up the remainder of my Hati charges on stringing amulets, getting a level and 48m counter exp...
90 Magic, 48m on tracker


All in all, a pretty productive day! Tomorrow I will collect MTK, get that last hunter rock for the week and probably work on some C2 dungeons (which should get me 86 DG, just 3.6k to level :P)

Today I got 86 DG (no picture) while doing some C2 floors and 77 Thieving. I'm not finding PP to be very good exp, am I doing it wrong? :S

Posted Image

I also got my last strange rock for the week (hunter), meaning I can finish the statue tomorrow and start again! :D Tomorrow I will also be able to do another Court Case (Evil Dave vs People) :)
In getting hunter rocks this week, I boosted my stack of marble vines to 290, which is equivalent to 4350 herb seeds' worth of Juju potions (not including the bonus from SOC or the 190 4-dose potions I have banked!) :o I doubt I'll ever use them all up, but I wouldn't ever want to run out :P aside from trying to get a placeholder for Witchdoctor legs, that'll be the last time I hunt non-Draconics for a long while I think.

I also decided to burn some vyres, as I had the corpses taking up bank space. I burnt a total of 183 corpses, bringing me to a total of 383 so far - not many to go!
The result was 6.4M of loot... not bad! :P

I don't know, maybe you should :P I have to say though, that was the most profitable drop I've ever had if that makes you feel better!

*Feels better*
I'm rich enough to not really go "OMG 5M I'm rich" However that would make a nice addition. helping out my pure a lil bit. :3
Note to self: Pick up vyre drops next task.
How much do they stack btw? Is it X/ bank space, or is there X types? Or am I thinking badly? :unsure:

There are X types - I did a task of 100-odd and got 6 different stacks. Not great for bank space, but if you're a bit obsessive with keeping your bank clear (me) then you'll be fine :P


Hai. Hope you accomplish your goals. If you ever need Bandos lend, let me know. (:


Thanks! :D

I didn't really have much time on RS today, but I finished my statue (number 13) and started collecting rocks again: sitting on 2 cooking, 2 smithing, 1 crafting, 1 RC so far. Tomorrow, between wicked hood and JOT, I will get 79 RC :)
I'm still looking for a decent way to train Thieving, I think I might be doing PP wrong...

I also completed the EVIL DAVE Court case:

Posted Image

After opening caskets, I got the Miss Schism case, which I will do in a fortnight.

I also did 3 quick dungeons, getting me about 140k exp - I'll need to reset soon, probably before getting to floor 44 :( with that in mind though, I'm not far from my next DG goal (Thunderous floors)!
I really hope I am improving somewhat as a dungeoneer...I don't like the feeling of holding the others in the floor back.


EDIT: As I wrote this, I got my second crafting rock... :)

I played for a bit today, enough time to get 1 RC, 1 WC, 1 farming, 1 herblore, 2 fletching and 2 agility rocks. In the process of getting my agility rocks, I hit 125 agility laps done at Gnome Advanced (half-way to Agile legs, woo!) and this level:

Posted Image

Then after Wicked Hood and JOAT, I got 79 RC:

Posted Image

Between Troll Invasion, Wicked Hood and JOAT I should hopefully get 80 in a few weeks :)

I went to explore the Troll Warzone area after the update; I really like the feel it has, though some of the tasks are a bit annoying. I completed the new quest to keep my Quest Cape:



Haven't really got much else to report! :)

I've been mostly trying to finish off my strange rocks for this week today: 1 WC, 2 firemaking, 2 fishing, 1 mining, 2 thieving and 2 hunter, leaving 1 mining and 2 construction to get :)
For the 5th week in a row, I've got Witchdoctor top from Herblore Habitat - quite irritating, all I want is a placeholder for the bottoms! I did get some more vines though (which I will save for a while - I can then use the 10% boost from Guthix's Favour to its full effect) and hunter exp, leaving me 60k from 82.

I am running short on vine herb seeds - only 1 samaden and 1 erzille, so hopefully doing a bit more hunting will get me a few more samaden/ugune <3

I also did a couple of dungeons. I'm not sure what my next purchase should be - I have ASN and rapier, what else could I need?

I didn't realize that your name referred to a rock garden. :razz: Congratulations on all of the strange rocks you've been gathering, as well as your recent levels.

I also really like your idea of all of the little icons in your initial post. Nice work on this blog.

Haha, thanks! Speaking of which, finished with my strange rocks for the week! Can't start collecting again til Monday.

Today I bought some green dragon leather and made bodies for 85 Crafting:

I might get 86 in the next few days, so then I can boost for the flasks that were mentioned in February's BTS. I'll also have to get about 50k mining exp.
I also got 87 firemaking in the Jadinko Lair:
Posted Image

And then I finished off my task of bloodveld to get this:
Posted Image

I think I'm probably done with combat for a while - I want to focus on my other skills, and maybe access extremes (at the very least) before starting to slay 'seriously'. My current task is vyres, which will allow me to max my flail!

I might buy some Ganodermic and try PPSing the Fight Caves - any ideas on this?
I am currently doing a bit of fletching to pass the time, in between farm runs of course. I bought the Greenfingers aura, with a mind to upgrade it next month - so far, it seems worth the points! :D

I also managed to hit 50M total exp on my counter, at some stage between the two pictures.

Ah, thanks! The variety of things to do is what I like about RS :P

I haven't been on much at all this week - a combination of being ill, maintaining a social life and having tons and tons of work really restricted my play time. My workload will probably mean I focus on the more AFKable skills for the coming few weeks, until the Easter break.

However, I did manage to gather all the rocks this week, as well as do penguins, HH (finally got a placeholder for witchdoctor legs!) and the circus. I've only gained 3 levels (2 of which I forgot to screenshot...): 81 mining, 86 woodcutting and 86 herblore:

Posted Image

As you can see, that last one also got me 2100 total :D I have come quite far from 100 levels ago it seems!
Court Case tomorrow and completing my 15th statue - half way there! I should also be able to get 80 RC this week between wicked hood, JOAT, Troll Invasion and penguins...
