Ok quite a lot to talk you through over the past couple of days, just gotta hope that I haven't forgotten anything from yesterday!

I definitely won't be doing updates every two days because I'm stretching my memory and I'm probably forgetting a few things from yesterday but what I started off with was agility.
One of my only skills still below 60 I decided to get from 51-55, and it didn't take too long around the wilderness agility course. I contemplated getting 60 there and then but I decided I'd go away and come back for that another time!

Posted Image

After that I continued farming, and for the first time ever I had all 4 herb patches die on me which was the lowlight of the day! I decided to get a quick fletching level seeing as I'm slightly OCD and wanted to try out broad bolt fletching, and despite requiring a fair amount of clicking, it's extremely fast and slightly profitable!

(None of my pictures are uploading at the moment so the rest of this post will be text I'm afraid!)

I think after that I may have down more but my memory is failing me, all I remember is I ended the day geared up for barrows, ready for the next day to bring me some luck!

Today started with 5 more barrows runs without a drop, taking my total dry run to over 60 runs, and I truly think it'll be a long while before I return to barrows because I give up!

After that I went back to agility, whilst catching up with an old friend who used to/possibly still does use this forum Errr. I asked him to take me DKing again like he did in the past, but he told me he couldn't. I asked why and he said after maxing slayer and combat he'd sold all combat gear! To each their own I guess.

I got 58 agility before getting pked... pathetic!

After that I quickly got 60 herblore before heading off to the clan citadel.
For the first time ever I was able to actually contribute to the citadel and the mining plot immediately took my fancy and I levelled to 62 mining pretty quickly! I charged my ring at the woodcutting plot and went to chop ivy for a nice round 70 woodcutting!

After that I went back and got 60 agility before calling it a night.

Sorry for a lack of pictures, I might try and upload them tomorrow, we'll see!
Only four skills left under 60, and summoning doesn't really count because I don't want the combat levels that will come with it, so only ten hunter levels, nine construction levels and five thieving levels!

60 thieving shouldn't take too long via pyramid plunder, construction will be fast but expensive and hunter will be the least enjoyable so will be last!
I'm also only ~15 levels away from the 1700 total milestone so I'm aiming to get that with 70 slayer which I feel is a nice level to reach such a milestone with!

I'm out in the evenings tomorrow and saturday so playing time will be cut down but I should definitely reach 1700 total sometime this weekend!

Sorry Prets!
I really haven't been playing much at all since my last post but I'll fill you in on what I have been up to I guess!

On Friday I logged in, completed troll invasion on easy difficulty, and levelled construction to 53 before logging out and heading off to a party!

Saturday wasn't a lot more productive... I ventured to the depths of the desert to attempt to plunder some pyramids, and after an hour ish I again had to log out for another social gathering.

Yesterday I did some more pyramid plunder up until 59 thieving, at which point I decided to pickpocket master farmers for the last level, mainly because I wanted to get the two strange rocks.

A torstol and snapdragon seed later I was ready to exchange in the rocks to get me the level, and that I did!

(Once again tinypic is refusing to upload my images so if anyone knows another image hosting website please let me know)

There is a horrible story that goes along with the thieving level and here it is... Basically I wasn't paying total attention whilst pickpocketing and in case you hadn't guessed it, I picked one too many pockets and was beaten to death for my troubles. Now usually death isn't a problem in runescape, but for some reason, wicked robes vanish upon death, so for the second time now I've lost wicked robe bottoms and wicked cape to death! My brassard also went from 100 to 0 which is going to cost some money to repair, although fortunately I was able to get back and grab my 300k+ worth of seeds, so the brassard doesn't matter too much, just those pesky wicked robes!

After that I started on my spiritual warriors slayer task but got bored after just 9, so I'll finish that off later and either start on construction or continue slaying depending on the task I receive next.

My combat goal is still 99 and I've worked out I can achieve that with the following stats

70 Attack, 70 Strength, 80 Defence, 80 Range, 80 Magic, 62 Prayer, 52 Summoning, 80 Constitution.
Those levels put me on the brink of 100 combat, literally gaining any level, well besides magic and range, will level me up. I'm also hoping that I can get some cannonable tasks because currently I think I'm ~600k from 80 constitution and only ~500k from 75 slayer, so if I can cannon some tasks I'll be able to reach 75 slayer at 99 combat which is an impressive feat is it not?

I use Photobucket for all of my RS pictures.

Nice work getting thieving to 60 - sorry about your death and the loss of your wicked gear. I've lost the wicked bottoms once already due to death.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I went with Imgur in the end, it allows me to upload multiple images at once too which is convenient!

Yesterday started with the completion of my spiritual warriors slayer task and the first kill after banking I received a clue. I decided to finish the task before doing the clue, and it was nothing I couldn't handle, and the reward itself was well worth it!

Posted Image

A nice addition to my cashpile thanks to that shield!

After that I went on a fire giant task which got me 110 experience from 70 slayer, which was the level with which I wanted to get 1700 total with, so I went and bought a load of oak planks and started on construction, not a fun thing to do, but pretty fast and reached 55 in no time

Posted Image

After that I got a couple more construction levels before finally reaching 1700 total! Only about 2 weeks or so after 1600 total, not too bad if you ask me, and a nice level with which to get the 1700th level!

Posted Image

I'm going to finish up 60 construction before returning to slayer, and I'll switch between slayer and hunter until I reach 60 in that too, after that I'm not too sure what I'll do, time will tell I guess!

So yesterday I got the last 2 construction levels and missed the print screen, well more forgot than missed, and then started on hunter, getting 53 before logging out.

Today I picked up where I left off, although chinchompas were far too slow so I returned to falconery and am currently level 58 so I won't be getting 60 until tomorrow it seems.

Sorry for such a poor update from 2 days worth, I've just not been on too much lately, and tomorrow will follow the same pattern, although after 60 hunter only summoning will be left under 60 and I won't be raising that because of I don't want to gain combat levels, so we'll see what happens, I'll probably slay for a bit until I hit 99.999999 combat and then skill until 1800 total, I'm seriously considering pushing fishing towards 90 and then I can slowly but surely head to 99 via rocktails and make some bank, but who knows.

Wow I've really let this blog slip, I'm sorry!
I really haven't been playing much lately and I don't have any reason for it other than lack of motivation.
After reaching 60 hunter, and obviously following the recent trend, missing the picture, I found myself with 60+ all skills (minus summoning) and I couldn't find anything that I really wanted to do next, I tried fishing, and got bored after 250 shark, I tried mining and got bored after 250 iron so I really don't know what to do with my time, even slayer seems a bit too tedious for my liking right now so if anyone can suggest something for me to do I'm all ears.
Perhaps a skill related minigame or activity that isn't as mainstream or popular but fun?
Efficiency doesn't matter to me, enjoyment does, so the more fun the better.
I'm going to log on now and see is I get the urge to try something but if not I doubt I'll stay on for long...

So what have I been up to over the past few days, I hear my ever dwindling number of readers ask.
Well not a lot at first, but yesterday I got in a proper session of runescape, and the entirety of that session was spent slaying.

The day started off with that dust devil task from which I gained 70 slayer and 1700 total. No dragon chain drop unfortunately, well no real drops of any worth to be fair, quite an underwhelming task, but nothing too difficult for my rune crossbow.

After that I received banshees and I decided to take a trip to the smoky well to take on the greater of the two varieties which also allowed me to take advantage of the multi-combat by using my cannon. I blitzed through this task, and although I didn't receive a clue scroll, I received what some, not me, would call the better scroll.

Posted Image

I know how rare they are, and after only killing ~300 banshees in total on this account I should be greatful, however, the rewards for the champion scrolls are so pathetic they're hardly worth doing.

After that I was given a greater demon task and I'm currently stuck in brimhaven dungeon with about 40 left but not enough prayer potions to last me the remainder of the trip which is frustrating to say the least, so I'll be having to bank and return before this task is out, but once more I'm powering through with my rune crossbow and in the next task, if rangeable, I should hit 75 range and possibly 71 slayer, so here's hoping for a nice one!

Thanks Greg, I certainly did power through the 1600s but since hitting the big 1700 I've definitely slowed down big time. It's been down to a mixture of running out of goals and motivation, and obviously as you increase levels, the time it takes to further better oneself increase exponentially.

Yesterday I finished off my greater demon task without having to bank because I found a nifty little safe spot which I used to lure that last ten or so demons to their doom and after that I completed a mediocre clue before being challenged with the task of kill over a hundred dust devils, the exact number escapes me. Having completed a dust devil task quite recently I decided to call another break on slayer and called it a day in general.

Today after Insane Chef so kindly lent me his dragon pickaxe, I will be mining coal in the resource dungeon non stop. I have worked out that 6000 coal and 3000 iron will get me to 70 mining, a long way off I know, but we'll see if I can actually grind out a skill for a change! I estimate this mining will take me until the weekend at the earliest, but with not much else to do I could be done sooner than I imagine!

P.S Insane Chef I'll be needing to borrow this pickaxe more often, it's awesome, I certainly notice the difference between rune and dragon!

Roll on 70+ all F2P skills, although dungeoneering and prayer will both have to wait because I don't want to be training combat outside of slayer for a while. Once I reach 1800 total I guess to really become efficient I'll have to get 80 attack and work on getting a chaotic rapier for slaying, but that is a long way off.

Mine mine mine!

I've come to the conclusion mining isn't too bad.

I think it's just powermining I despise because of all that clicking. Mining coal with a dragon pickaxe and running for two seconds before banking it a much more enjoyable way to mine, and I'm getting about 15k exp/hour which is more or less what I got from powermining iron anyway so I'm content.

Never before, have I grinded a skill as much as this, and that alone deserves a mention.

No pictures from yesterday despite levelling mining past the nice 65 milestone. I genuinely think I'm going to hit 70 mining today. 62-70 mining via coal in two days is pretty damn impressive if you ask me! I think I'll end up with around 7000 coal or so, maybe a bit less. How ever much I end up with will be divided by two, and that is how many iron ores I will be purchasing in preparation for the big smithing skillathon. I'll also need the same amount of nature runes as I do coal. Not half because I will not only be superheating all of this ore into steel bars, I'll be smithing into plates for high alching a bit later, the process I believe will take me to around 67 smithing and I'll also gain a couple of magic levels bringing that skill up to a nice tidy 78! 2 from my goal of 80!

Well back to mining for me, closing in on 70 is a place I never thought I'd be with this skill but it seems I'm almost there!

What happened yesterday? I hear you all so eagerly ask!
Yesterday I hit a milestone I never thought possible with my attention span. After about 15 hours of solid mining I reached this phenonemal level, and gained almost 8000 coal in the process!

Posted Image

Adamantite ore I'm coming for you! Well probably not, that'll be enough mining for a while I think, a big thanks to Insane Chef for lending me his dragon pickaxe twice, seriously speeding up the entire operation!

After mining I bought some iron ore and nature runes and the rest of the day was spent superheating. It's hard to type whilst superheating so I couldn't really enjoy it too much but I positioned myself so I could still watch a film at the same time, so the task of smelting almost 4000 steel bars wasn't as ardous as I'd expected it to be. I gained 2 magic and 2 smithing levels in that time too!

Tomorrow I will be smithing steel plates, alching steel plates and then probably superheating some mithril bars to get 70 smithing and 80 magic in the same breathe!
After that it's crafting's turn to hit the big 70, but I haven't quite figured out how best to do that yet...

Ok well to pick up where the last post left us, I smithed those ~700 steel plates like there was no tomorrow, but I was still a good 3 levels short of my goal of 70, so I decided why not combine my smithing and magic goals into one. 6000 mithril bars it was going to take me to get 80 magic and 70 smithing, but I was willing to do it for the sake of not spending a fortune on 3 smithing levels!

After buying the supplies I headed off to yanille bank, my new favourite training hotspot for any bank sitting activities. It is peaceful there but never empty, there is often a couple of other skillers there you can have a genuinely decent conversation with, which I tend to find difficult around the grand exchange.

I was a long day but the first milestone to come was the higher level, but some may say less impressive due to the amount of 99s in this skill.

Posted Image

Whilst many people with much lower combat levels have much higher magic levels than me, level 80 magic is truly a grand achievement for someone who despises grinding any skill, including magic. Alching 20k items was never an option for me, so I got magic to 80 the slow way.

Closely following that level was this one. I think this is actually a slightly better achievement, despite it being 10 levels lower. I've achieved 78 magic on another account before but I'd never even passed 60 smithing on any account, so to reach 70 on this one is a real signifier that this account is my best by far.

Posted Image

So that's another two goals crossed off my list, and that being said, I should probably update the goals on my front page seeing as most of them are done now!

This is a two day post because I was busy last night but I didn't get time to start crafting before I went out, so I started that this morning.
Waking up before noon is something I've been struggling with this summer but I've decided to try and wake up at around 11am each day now just so I'm not completely wasting my summer!

Today I logged in and bought as many battlestaves as Zaff and the grand exchange would allow me, 116. Not great considering I would need to craft over 1500 to reach 70 crafting. However, in that session earlier all in all I crafted around 800 air battlestaves, all down to the kindness of the runescape community.

The runescape community spirit is often called into question, and I am not usually one for defending it, with constant abuse being hurled between immature players. Today however, a total of 7 strangers went out of their way to buy me battlestaves off the grand exchange and sell them back to me at market value. I assume they maybe made 5-10k profit, but really the profit wasn't why they were doing it. They were doing it because they wanted to help out another player, and that really did restore my faith in the game.

There were the obvious few trolls who told me I'd have to pay 10million gp for the staves, but all in all I was very happy with the way these generous and kind people conducted themselves.

As I type this I am logged out on 68 crafting because it seems there are only so many kind people in the game. Hopefully I'll log in soon and find another 7 or 8 players who will be willing to take a few seconds out from their training to help me reach my goal of 70 crafting. After that I think some combat is in store because I've neglected it for almost a week now! I think a goal of 1800 total before the end of July is a bit much but that is what I'm hoping to be near when that time comes, so we'll see how things go!

I'm not entirely sure what will happen after the summer. I know for a fact my playing time will be cut down a fair amount because I don't want to spend my first few months of university cooped up inside on runescape, I want to be out enjoying myself, although I think I have mentioned before that I'll quit altogether. The latter is looking less likely now, but as I said the time I play will be dramatically cut down especially compared to how much I'll be able to play this summer.
Thanks wizard I've always been a combat noob at heart but I've tried hard on this account to keep things balanced and I'd like to think I'm doing a good job, it's hard to believe that my farming level is higher than both my attack and strength levels! Thanks for the offer as well but I've finished with crafting for now, but battlestaves will certainly be the way forward for all future crafting endeavours.

Yesterday, as I said above, I completed my crafting goal. I logged in and found a few nice people at the grand exchange willing to buy me battlestaves and I crafted away. I think 66-70 cost me around 500k in total which is not bad at all!

Posted Image

I even said the level aloud in the public chat because the people there seemed really nice and I earned a few congratulations!
After that I returned all the favours I'd received that day and bought a passer by 10k headless arrows and 10k mithril arrowheads, he was headed for 99 fletching and he had no thoughts about doing it slowly.

After that Quily, or Tranquil, popped past and reminded me I hadn't done a farm run in a few days and whilst my farming had stuck at 71 for over a week, his had shot up to 85! So I went and checked and harvested all that was to be checked and harvested and I levelled to 72 farming! I want to get farming up pretty quickly because I want to be able to boost to 80 farming to charge my own polypore staff now that I have 80 magic!

After that farming run I wasn't too sure what to do, I was bankstaring and it was a fifty fifty toss up between fishing to 90 or slaying. My slayer task was dust devils and the last time I was there I got bored pretty quickly, so I ventured off to the fishing guild and fished sharks for a couple of hours or so, bringing me to within 100k of level 89. I doubt I'll go to 90 right now, I'll probably get 88 today and then slay to my heart's content, before re-evaluating which skills need to reach 70 next! Construction seems the obvious choice because of the quest requirement, which leads me nicely onto what I also plan on doing a lot of soon, questing.

I was sat at the grand exchange and it hit me that I've never had an elven land clue, and then it hit me again that on this account I hadn't even completed underground pass! So yes a lot of questing is in store soon so hopefully I'll hit the 200m jackpot with those bonus spins!

Only a minor update based on the small amount of time I spent on the game yesterday.
I spent a couple of hours fishing in the fishing guild and finally hit 89 fishing, half of 88 to 89 earned me over 1 million gp but sharks are incredibly slow so I think I'll switch to monkfish in the future. I also learnt that the fishing guild is the worst place to try and have a conversation... I don't like accusing people of being botters but it's hard not to when there are over 50 people there and not one of them says a word to you!

After that I started on my dust devil task, ranging about 70 of them before getting bored and then logged off. The plan for today is to finish that task and hopefully get a few good tasks in a row that will make me want to slay, if not I'm not sure what I'll do yet, I think my next 70 will be agility because of the shortcuts and it'll be a nice skill to reach 70.
