Banking Standing Skills?


Nien

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Tifers!

 

So kind of a strange-ish question to ask, however, I'm curious and would like other peoples opinions.

 

As some of you may or may not know, I am going for a goal of 100m Cash pile by the end September 28th.

That's a 900% increase from my current bank, and I will be doing this purely through merchanting/flipping/donations.

 

However, I DO NOT want to be just stand at the GE all day long and wasting my time in a way.

 

SO here's my question: What skills do YOU think would be best/easiest to do while bank standing?

 

Currently, I am doing Firemaking, but at this rate, I'll have 99 by the end (or middle) of this week. I actually really enjoy Firemaking, so if all else fails, I'll just keep getting EXP in that.

 

Some skills I've considered are:

Fletching

Magic

Herblore (need monies though)

Smithing?

 

What are your thoughts?

 

And with the skills you can think of:

(a. are they cheap?

(b. how efficient is training them at the bank?

(c. what's the best way of going about training them?

 

 

You guys in no way need to answer all of these questions, but just a brief summary of what I'm curious about.

 

Feel free to pick and choose what you'd like to respond about as you please.

 

Hold Fast, dear friends.

My favorite skills to train in a bank are fletching, herby, crafting, and cooking. You could superheat if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend it. Now obviously herblore and crafting are likely going to be more expensive than fletching and cooking, but, it really is up to you which you'd like to do.

 

Easiest and most AFK would probably be cooking or fletching.

 

Check out grimy's spreadsheets so you can check the cost of each skill.

Why not superheating? That's what I've been doing while bank standing. I had almost 100k iron ore after getting 99 Mining, so now I'm turning it into Smithing and Magic xp. Superheating bars can even be profitable if the prices are right.

 

You could also train FM with bonfires. This obviously would not make any money, but you can set it up so that you can bank and burn from the same spot so you don't have to move.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Yeah, I've considered those, will be deciding soon, I think.

 

Thanks for the link.

I am currently doing this Kaida, will by my estimates get 99 Firemaking on Tuesday or Wednesday.

 

I think I'm going to do superheating until 85 Magic (apparently Gold Bars are good? Going to research them more).

And then decide on what next from there.

It is better to mine and superheat at the same time in lrc.

Not if you merchant at the same time (and that is your highest gp/hr activity).

 

Superheating gold with gauntlets, smithing and magic xp.

Stringing amulets, making planks etc. for magic xp.

Crafting

Fletching (arrows can be done anywhere)

Firemaking

Cooking

Herblore, clean herbs for cheapness

You can catch toy mice or penguins for agility xp
