It's gonna take a lot to top that day I think!

 

Yesterday was a pretty average day, I had my maths exam... but I won't go into that too much, let's just say it could've gone a lot, lot better! I didn't get online until about 4pm and then I only managed a few hours play because I was called out for a few hours later in the evening.

 

I started yesterday off gaining a magic level by buying and alching 1k rune arrows. I've decided I want 80 magic so I think if I just alch 1k arrows a day, I'll have it within a week or so. I've also bought 10k maple logs to start seriously fletching. I was really enjoying the Grand Exchange discussions, mainly because the majority of the runescape community really do lack what some would merely call common sense, or basic life skills...

 

Nevertheless, after achieving 76 magic I went on a fletching spree, gaining 5 levels, the only one of any real significance was this:

 

jgttuq.jpg

 

Still a ridiculously low level for such an easy skill, but I'll be at least 70 by the end of the week! Although, speaking of the end of the week, I think I only have like 3 more days of membership left!

After magic and fletching levels, I ventured off to the slayer dungeon to complete a tedious 150 cave crawler task, nothing too interesting to note, I might just go for the bigger ones in the smoke dungeon next time.

159 blue dragons were up next, and I really didn't fancy battling with all the bots there, so I once again tediously worked my way through the lesser form, the babies.

My prayers for a decent task were not answered, however 134 kalphites were quick and nice experience with my cannon, although I did spend 250k on cannonballs, so I'm back to just over one million gp!

 

Overall it'd been a mediocre day, nothing bad but nothing at all good coming from it, and very few levels. I returned from my kalphite task to be awarded a banshee task, so I'm debating whether or not to stock up on cannonballs for the smoky well dwellers, or whether to pray and melee them down there... or perhaps go for the easier option and kill them in the slayer tower... Either way I'm 2 tasks from learning to fletch broad bolts which will be good! It means I'll be able to fletch without banking, and it'll give me something to do whilst waiting for things, for example if I'm waiting for the last herb tick at the farming patches, I won't be wasting time!

 

That was about it for yesterday. I've got my end of year barbecue at school today but I should be back not too late, so I'll get 60 fletching, possibly 77 magic and maybe even a slayer and defence level too!

I haven't slayed in two days I'll have you know! Not that I've played too much these past two days...

 

Yesterday I logged on, only really got about an hour or so, won 250k from the squeal of fortune which was nice, then continued with my fletching drive. I gained another few levels, including this lovely level before heading off to school for a barbecue, then to a party from which I didn't return until 3am...

 

35kviia.jpg

 

So as you can see, not a productive day at all yesterday! Today wasn't vastly better... I decided to take advantage of the x5 cash prizes on the SoF by doing as many short quests as possible, and I managed to complete 4 today, meaning I had 10 spins, although the best reward I got cash wise was 25k, and then a few lamps. I'll probably continue with questing tomorrow and then monday is going to be my last day of being a member! Well for a few days or so...

 

I don't plan on playing runescape much at university, if at all, so loyalty points really won't make much difference to me, especially such a small amount of them. I'd rather spend some time F2P at runespan and firemaking, which for me are more or less the same exp rates as P2P, so why would I waste my membership days doing them!? The same will probably happen with mining, magic (if I find anything to alch in F2P), and a few other F2P skills!

 

By the end of next week however I do plan on resubscribing and powering towards 60+ all skills and then to 1800 total!

 

Apologies for such a weak post considering it's got two days worth of news in it, but tomorrow I have nothing planned other than watching the England game at the pub which'll take away 3 hours of my day maximum, but the evening will be questing questing questing!

So no more P2P for you?

Unlucky. You have less than half the total xp that I have. Start playing and reach up.

Only for a few days Prets. Total experience is hardly something I concern myself with, if you read my posts you'd know I'd much rather enjoy playing than grinding out skills such as fletching/cooking/firemaking into the 90s. That being said, I expect to achieve ~1M exp in firemaking, runecrafting and cooking over the next few days just because there won't be too much else for me to do.

 

As Prets said, my subscription to the game ran out today, but before that, I'll fill you in on what I've been up to over the past couple of days.

 

Yesterday was pretty much a day dedicated to the shattered heart minigame. I skilled and I skilled, starting with crafting.

 

It took me far too long to get both crafting rocks, but as a result I got this level:

 

1zg3uc4.jpg

 

I tried my hand at charging the orbs I'd crafted, but I got a tad bored, so I decided to kill the bots around my level there instead which was quite fun, so I hopped a few worlds killing a few more and building my cosmic rune collection as I went!

 

I gained a couple of smithing levels next but none were worth showing, before I moved from Varrock to the humble village of Draynor to steal from the hardworking farmers there, but not just any farmers, these truly were the masters of their trade! After little time at all, I achieved this level, before going on to get a nice 250k torstol seed I went on to get both rocks fairly quickly.

 

av244g.jpg

 

Runespan decided to give me both rocks in seconds, and then I decided to repurchase my wicked robe bottom and wicked cape, meaning I'll need to get about 85-90 runecrafting just to get the robe top, but we'll see!

After turning in all my rocks, I went back to fletching and crafting and gained a couple of levels in each before logging out.

 

Today involved a bit more fletching and crafting, and just tidying up my bank before the inevitable Free-to-playness overtook my account for a few days, so I'm afraid my posts will be Free-to-play orientated so some of you may not find them quite as interesting as before, but I promise before the week is over I'll be back to showing my face in world 99 once more.

Mini F2p Update~

 

So basically against the wishes of many of my fellow scapers I turned F2P on monday and so far I've actually gained almost 2 million experience, 1/3 of how much I earnt in an entire month as a member! Grinding skills isn't ideal but then there isn't too much else to do in F2P. Also with the help of Runescape's many new afkable skills, I'd hardly call it grinding!

 

I started off monday and most of tuesday firemaking. Achieving 80 from 76 wasn't going to be too difficult and I achieved the goal early on tuesday, however I was so afk I missed the picture!

 

After firemaking I ventured onto cooking and after a load of tuna took me from 65-74, I switched up to lobsters and as things stand I'm currently level 77 cooking, so 3 more of those levels will come today, before I think I'll return to the ol' runespan for 5 runecrafting levels. I'm hoping to achieving 80 cooking and then perhaps 76 or 77 runecrafting today, depending what else I do, and then I think tomorrow I'll get to 78/79, but I am quite busy these coming days! I've decided to hold off membership until next tuesday because I have two parties this weekend, and my prom on the monday, so it makes sense to me to wait.

 

After 80 runecrafting I might grind a bit of woodcutting, just a couple of levels from 68-70 on willows and then if I'm feeling really daring I'll truly grind some mining levels by powermining iron, but that's doubtful, I may just return to cooking or firemaking.

 

Things I've learnt whilst F2P? Not everyone in F2P is a 'noob'... although the majority are I'm afraid. That being said, there are probably an equal amount of idiots in both F2P and P2P, there just aren't as many intelligent people in F2P to dilute the idiots.

There are scammers in every grand exchange in F2P, and I've decided to stop trying to help. If people are stupid enough to believe money can be doubled then they deserve to be scammed. Hopefully they only get scammed a small amount and learn from it.

I've also learnt that playing fifa, pokemon, checking other websites whilst cooking/firemaking, makes the mundane task enjoyable, although obviously you lose some exp/hour as you're not constantly watching the screen, I still earnt over a million cooking experience alone yesterday!

 

I'm sorry for no pictures as of yet, I'll try and get one of 80 cooking later today!

That explains my low skills then!

 

Another small and undetailed update I'm afraid.

 

I reached 80 cooking on the day I planned, but the rest of my plans haven't gone according to well, plan. Say plan again?

I've been busy with real life stuff, mainly parties and girls, so I haven't been online too much, I'm currently 77 runecrafting, and as long as I get 78 and maybe 79 today, I'll grab 80 runecrafting tomorrow morning before prom.

 

On tuesday I'll be getting membership again so it'll probably be back to slayer for a while until I reach the brink of 100 combat, then it'll be back to skilling for ~100 or so levels.

 

Sorry for the past two pathetic updates, but my two groups of friends are both going away next week, and me being an idiot couldn't decide who to go with, so I'm not going with either... which means a lot of free time to scape!

Ok so here is the first back-to-normal update from me.

 

Yesterday was the day after prom so I didn't wake up until pretty late and I was far too hungover to see straight, so my spanning experience was slow. When I was about 40k from level 80, I decided to subscribe because I thought I may as well get the strange rocks for runecrafting whilst getting level 80, so I did that, gained the level, missed the picture and left runespan! I won't be returning there for quite a while it's safe to say!

 

After leaving the span, I ventured to varrock, added some strange rocks to the even stranger statue plinth and head to the G.E.

 

I wasn't too sure what to do first, but after tears of guthix got me 51 agility, I decided to go and do the fire giant slayer task I'd been given just before my membership ran out. I completed it with ease, although it was fairly time consuming, and got a few decent drops in the process. After that task I had enough points to unlock the ability to fletch broad bolts and arrows, which I'm told is some of the fastest fletching experience in the game, which is always a bonus!

 

What happened after that fire giant task took about 3 hours and I achieved absolutely nothing, but I still found it quite funny regardless!

 

A few people in the hyt friend chat, Polarbearblu, Sheepsaurus and Verzick (I hope I remembered their names correctly) were talking about boss hunting, but they were all low levelled (lower than me!) so weren't feeling 100% confident. Somebody suggested Bandos GWD, something I'd never attempted myself, so we all decided to give it a go! After taking over an hour double and triple checking supplies, and we had to wait for Sheep to do part of death plateau just to even get there, we arrived. It took another 30 minutes for us to all get kill count to 40 but then we were finally ready! Or so we thought...

 

Little did we know, with Bandos being the easiest GWD, we were facing stiff competition to find empty worlds. We spent about 30 minutes hopping until we came across a world with one guy soloing, so we thought, hell we're going to have to crash... well how wrong we were!

 

We ran in and let the soloer tank all the hits, however all 4 of us were unable to outhit 1 of him on 5+ kills. Verzick then died, Sheep had to tele so it was just myself and polarbearblu. This soloer decided to play with us and started to hide from the spawns and made it so myself or polarbear were the ones under constant attack, something we really weren't ready for! I barely survived long enough to loot Verzick's grave before snapping my house teleport and leaving after what can only be described as the worst Bandos trip ever!

 

After that I took the trusty flying carpet to Pollnivneach to get a new slayer task, and 141 spiritual warriors didn't really appeal to me so that'll probably be put on hold whilst I skill some more today, and maybe try another boss!

 

Kalphite Queen (solo) = Epic Fail

Bandos GWD (team of 4 newbs) = Epic Fail

What next? Dagganoth Kings perhaps?

 

If anyone is willing to take my to Dagganoth Kings, I've been before and me and an old friend duoed the melee king, and it wasn't too stressful, so yeah if anyone would be so kind, or just take me along to any boss hunt, because my boss kill count is still at 0!

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!

 

10gitsk.jpg

 

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?

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!

 

bOctE.png

 

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

 

urxmi.png

 

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!

 

6iT3P.png

 

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.

 

9dlYL.png

 

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!

 

bqTQt.png

 

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.

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.

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!
