Hello & welcome to my blog. This blog used to be about my unofficial ironman account, but since Jagex came out with the official mode, I switched over to playing that.

 

The official ironman progress starts on page 47.

 

So what are my goals on this account? I could say that I don't like setting any long term goals, but doing completionist cape requirements is always

on the back of my mind. I usually try to play efficiently, which is sometimes hard on ironman due to it being bit more complex than your average account.

 

I stream almost all of my progress @ http://twitch.tv/OddishX

 

I'll try to update this main post more often, but it will most likely end up being outdated as time goes by.

I'll give a quick recap about my road so far.

 

After finishing the new burthorpe tutorial (which sucked btw!) I realised I could make pretty easy cash by completing tasks around the world. So I started off by doing some low level quests while doing tasks as the same time. In no time I had passed 200 tasks done and money gained per task increased to 4k!

 

I had plenty money but my combat skills still were rather low (and still are, mind you :P) so I decided to do some of the more rewarding quests like Waterfall, Fight Arena, Vampire Slayer, which quickly bumped my melee stats to high 30s. I actually used Wind Rush during the Fight Arena battles... You can imagine how long that took :D

 

By the way, SoF spins from quests are extremely useful for a NOOB like me. I somehow managed to get 3 rune longs, rune battleaxe and rune 2h sword from them. :)

 

At some point I decided to take a break from questing to go test out the Runespan which everyone was talking about. My runecrafting was level 13 at this point which was gained from quest rewards and using the free essences from wicked hood to make me some air runes. Well soon enough I had gotten to 57 runecrafting (this minigame is TOOOOO fast!). I decided to stop there as it was the requirement for a task I think. After that I played a game of Great Orb Project to buy some of the talismans.

 

I decided to go back to questing, and oh boy I quested alot. I havent been counting but I could estimate I finished maybe 25 quests yesterday.

 

SoF spins being pretty useful again as they have given me 43 prayer without me actually training combat at all. This makes my questing somewhat easier as I don't have to safespot that much.

 

I think today is gonna be a good day to quest as well :) Alright thats enough from me, I'll update later about how my day went.

Wow, I've never actually heard of this before now, and it sounds pretty interesting and challenging. Keep us updated!

 

I do have one question, are you allowed to use guides on your quests and skills?

You should be allowed to do Dungeoneering with other people. Doing it all solo would be a hassle that had nothing to do with the DIY playstyle in my opinion.

It's elitism, Runar and Itam and Kabe to name a few DIY Dg. They, by right, have the largest of all the penises.

Then technically, you should do Heroes/Shield of Arrav by yourself. It is possible.

Don't forget things like karamja hard diaries, because you have to win fight pits.

Also there is a Ardy task where you have to participate in castle wars.

Yeah, but I hardly ever use guides for quests. Usually I just look which items are needed and finish the quest without a guide.

 

 

Day 1 (of blogging!)

 

Today was another quest filled day. The boss fights are getting slightly harder. Even managed to die against Argg in troll romance. He literally 1 Hit KO'd me due to my low constitution level. Managed to finish a couple of easy clues I got from pickpocketing H.A.M members. Oh god I despise that place now, spent over 2 hours pickpocketing them for 2 full sets of H.A.M robes....

5 Quests remain that I have the required skills for atm (not including follow up quests)

Weird bug that happened today as I used an XP lamp on crafting.. Guess it's true that my crafting skills dont really get better by rubbing lamps :thumbsup:

 

1 Level away from 50 crafting & making my first ruby amulet :) Should I keep using lamps on crafting after that? Prayer would be a good choice as well.

Day 2

 

Today was overall pretty nice. Got loads of stuff done. Ran out of quests at one point so I had to go skilling. Ended up getting requirements for making Bullseye Lantern (Got lazy while smithing so I just drank dwarven stout to boost to 49).

Training firemaking&woodcutting is so nice now, can pretty much burn the logs losslessly while just cutting more :)

Tried Troll Invasion skiller role for the first time, and oh boy I failed so bad. Trolls ended up winning only after 420/1500 kills which netted me around 4K prayer exp :(

Did my first ToG weekly on this account as well which got me 5 summoning levels.

 

 

 

I think tomorrow I will spend big amount of my time trying to do Monkey Madness. Might focus on herblore first though as prayer pots could come in handy.

Day 3

 

Started off the day wanting to do Fremennik Trials. Little did I know the quest needed Raw Shark. After a bit of googling I found out you can get raw sharks from Temple Trekking. So I ended up doing In Aid of the Myreque quest. The quest addict that I am, I just finished off the questline, leaving only the finale (Branches of Darkmeyer). So yay now I have a Blood Talisman! I might go back to temple trekking to get myself some herbs/essence/ores as I kinda like the minigame.

 

Eventually I did get to do the fremmy trials and thanks to that I am now a owned of Berserker Helm, Archer Helm and Farseer Helm! (Also did get 45+ def to wear them, courtesy of Olaf's Quest(which is the worst quest in history, fell off that bridge 10 times))

 

Did few more subquests of RFD and now I have the addy gloves :P

 

Also got a few "milestones" today which are the 200+ Questpoints and 1000+ Skill total. How often do you see a noob account like this with so many questpoints? :D

 

I ventured into Daemonheim as well. Did mainly C2s while fishing/cooking/woodcutting/firemaking and I gotta say I loved how fast that exp was.

Slow, slow day. Got 14 ranged levels just trying to get a medium clue, and didnt even end up getting one. Anyone know a good monster that drops em? I was killing pyrefiends/guards. I need yew/magic bow for Temple of Ikov so my best bet is medium clue for yew one.

 

I also trained my smithing so I could smith a Zephyrium 2H. Never realised how fast iron ore mining is in dwarven mine near that resource dungeon. Then I went dungeoneering a bit, mainly to train wc/fm/fish/cook which are exceptionally fast there at this level. Slowly working towards heroes quests reqs (fish and cook still too low). I finished the first fremmy saga too.

 

Ah I almost forgot that I did a bit of farming as well. Was doing farming-related quests so it felt appropriate. I'll put that on hold for now though I think, until I'm bit higher thieving to not fail master farmer so much. And Yay I got a willow seed from bird nest too! I planted that big boy so I can later get the needed 18 Willow Branches for a Quest and a Task from it.

 

SoF was definitely on my side tonight. Got Rune Scimitar and Adamant Hatchet both of which are welcome upgrades.

 

Is it safe to eat candies given by some guy in purple robes called Uri?

Continued from where I left off yesterday, which is medium clue hunting. Only THREE guards later, a medium clue dropped. On my first medium clue I got just the thing I needed, a yew shortbow. Adamant Crossbow will prove highly useful as well I would guess. I'm one lucky duck.

10293541.jpg

 

Then I headed off to Daemonheim to get a few cooking levels needed to make Chocolate Cake, which I needed for few things.

 

After that I continued my questing, doing three relatively easy quests. Then I ran out of quests, except for Contact! and Monkey Madness so I decided it was time to wreak some havoc at Ape Atoll. Honestly, this quest was alot easier than I remembered it to be... I thieved 50 ish cakes for it, ended up using less than 10. 70 Minutes later the Jungle Demon laid dead before my eyes and I gained the ability to use a Dragon Scimitar. 60 Attack is however required, and will now be my choice of combat style until I achieve it.

 

10293581.jpg

 

I was 1099 skill total after gaining multiple combat-related levels from the quest so I just caught 1 Polar Kebbit to gain a hunter level.

 

Now I have to get off, as I have a party to attend to. Will continue tomorrow unless I'm far too hungover :P

Had a little more time to play and I decided to finish the last quest I had reqs for, Contact. Rather easy quest, killed the Giant Scarab boss with 11 Iban Blasts... That spell is so overpowered for only level 50 magic lol (max hit 250 I think?).

Got a thieving level from the quest, which is now 50.

 

 

 

Btw, is 75 woodcutting the only way to get magic logs? :(

No, but it's by far the easiest way. You can try killing GWD bosses or get 80+ slayer and kill mutated jadinkos if you want though...
