Ohai!

This is, more-or-less, my scenic tour of the road to 200M Slayer. I realize this is quite a hefty undertaking. At this point in time, 17 players have it, with many more on the doorstep. Nonetheless, the skill does still take some time and dedication.

Good luck, Rapier isn't essential to Slayer thesedays seeing as the majority of weaknesses are Magic/Ranged related.
But not using a Cannon is a strange one, good luck nonetheless.

I got my 99 in May of 2010, prior to most of my guildmates even having chaotic weapons, and well before I even had extremes or turmoil. Cannons just never really appealed to me. I tried it, but found they were just too much work!

About 2 years ago I was about the same stats with the same goal as you, although my ambition for 200M faded away pretty quickly and I only ever managed to hit 70M. I wish the best of luck to you!

I am actually kind of happy about that since Range and Mage are the two combat skills I still need to finish off. Ganos, for example, are a very nice source of Magic XP.

Also, I'd like to thank the random guy at Ganos today who suggested that instead of safespotting with Deflect Mage that I just tank the buggers and keep Soul Split turned on. Made my task so much nicer.

Finished a task of vyrewatch and a task of gargoyles tonight. I knew about certain untradeables being able to be noted with the KK update, but I did not realize that vyre corpses can now be put into yak! That makes tasks in Darkmeyer that much easier now. Also, their weakness may be thrown, but Blisterwood Polearm still cuts through 'em like a hot knife through butter. Also, I assume gargoyles may have been one of the monsters they adjusted with the update today, as I did a task last night with the same method and gear, and I was doing a lot of splashing. Tonight I was actually one-hitting a few of them with Wrack. Talk about a fast task, I did 210 and still had half my Steelie left!

Started a warper tortoise task tonight. Still haven't decided if I want to finally give up and start skipping these. Other tasks have become so quick that these are starting to be boring. I think they were more fun when they were weak to melee.

Only other notable events tonight were: 88 Thieving, and finally reaching the Scythe region in POP.

OK, I finally finished my warped tortoise task. Finally. Couple of observations: They are stupidly slow even with bolts. Granted, I am using rune cbows with broads, but even with Anguish on, and extreme range pots, even abilities are less than stellar. I did these once before post-EoC, so I am guessing their defense may have been buffed up, and not brought back down with yesterday's update. That and I got more perfect shells than regular shells. Long story short, these are so dreadfully boring it's not even worth it for me anymore. These were a fun, quick task when they were still weak to melee. I foresee myself cancelling these, if not blocking them in the future.

Kuradal must want me to level up Magic, however, as she is sending me right back to Gargoyles when I get back from work. I won't complain. :D

Finished another task of Gargoyles, followed by a fairly profitable task of Ganos. Both went very very quick, and my next Magic level is closer on the horizon. Task 1190 is abyssal demons, but I'll save that for later.

I've gone and taken advantage of the 1-year subscription, so I finally broke down and used the Runecoins to buy bankspace. I am a hoarder in the worst way and I could never properly build a loot tab, since I am constantly scrambling for space. Now, that won't be a problem so I will try and hold onto drops for a little bit. Maybe I will sell every so often, or maybe I will see how long I can resist the urge. :P Nonetheless, I will periodically take screenshots of my collection of stuff.

Had a productive evening with roughly 160k Slayer XP gained. Tore through abyssal demons, then back to gargoyles. My next task was dagannoths, and one of my guildmates suggested barraging them at Waterbirth. I tried it, not having really used barrages before, but what a difference! Talk about a lightning fast task. After that I got 246 dark beasts, which were somewhat slow even having been fixed with the last update. I never really noticed the big difference between rune crossbows and upper tier weapons until now. Crystal bow was faster on dark beasts, despite them being weak to bolts. Maybe, just maybe, I might have to do enough dungeoning to get a chaotic crossbow. Following that, I went back to abyssal demons for another easy task, plus a clue scroll with no notable reward. Next up tomorrow is an aquanite task.

For dark beasts I really really recommend cannoning them in the Temple of Light. It is amazing experience.

But I hate cannoning, LOL. I don't even own one. :P

In my late-night haze, however, I decided to get the parts for a Royal crossbow, so at least once I get that made I'll have that at my disposal, too.

You hate clicking a cannon, yet you titan tasks? Titan management requires like 3x as much work as clicking a stagnant cannon every minute.
If you can't afford cannonballs, that's one thing, but don't say it's because you dislike using one.

Good luck with your goal.

But I do dislike using one. :P. And to be fair, I am probably far from efficient when it comes to using my titan as well, but I've become accustomed to that. Cannons have always seemed like a big hassle to me.

I have always been sort of a broke noob, so yes, cost does play a factor. But I also dislike having to devote 4 inventory spaces to the cannon, worrying about it degrading on me, retrieving it. That's 4, 5 if you count ammo, extra spaces I could use for loot. Yes, I realize for many, speed and efficiency demands use of a cannon. And that many who are after XP gains often leave most of their drops, if not all of them, behind.

So yes, it is both because of cost, and what I perceive to be a hassle.

I know but, I used to be the same, hate using a cannon, thought it wasnt worth the cost and time (this was when it was more expensive).

But try it out for 10 tasks, then you will get in the habit of using it. Your experience will shoot through the roof. Like Rizhou said, using a titan is much higher apm, and if you can handle a titan, you can most definately handle a cannon :)

And it is even better to use a cannon now because it is cheaper and you can alter what experience it gives. Plus you need the range levels haha :P But I suppose you will get 99 anyway on the way to 200M slayer.

It's really up to you but, I haven't met one person who has not used a cannon once they have given it a serious go.

Well you're the first then haha. But yeah, I admit I am an efficiency [bleep], I cringed a little when you said you used momentum. But then again we all play this game our own way for our own enjoyment, which is why I havent scaped in over a month because it's just not fun anymore.

Oh trust me, I don't judge anyone who plays this game for efficiency. I mean, hell, we wouldn't have a player who has gained 200M in 24 skills and on the doorstep of another if there wasn't some thought and effort put into optimal XP gains over time. I've played other MMOs where emergent gameplay has changed the game from what the devs intended it to be into a grindy, automated race to the top. I'm loath to mention WoW on here, but there's a reason they say the game doesn't "start" until you reach max level.

RS is how I relax after I come home from work and take care of my IRL responsibilities. But, I'm not totally closed off to new possibilities. I'll take you up on your challenge, Mish. I'll try cannoning the next 10 tasks (that are cannonable) and see how I feel about it. I'll confess I'm a little apprehensive, LOL.

>_> I suppose I shouldn't tell you barraging dagannoths last night was the first time I've ever even USED ancients. :P
