I was originally gonna titled this "least favorite", but least favorite would imply it has been favorite at some point.

 

Anyway, the title basically says it all. What's your most hated monster to fight?

 

By that I mean which monster would you refuse to fight because you hate fighting the monster that much?

 

As for me, I'm gonna have to go with giant rats, cows and hellhounds.

 

I do like fighting all sorts of monsters, including weak ones like Al-kharid warriors and barbarians in Barabian Village.

 

But those monsters I mentioned give me NOTHING, nothing at all.

 

I could make something out of what the cow drop and cook the meat. But is it really worth fighting for that? No it isn't.

 

Also, I will admit that the hard clue scrolls from hellhounds are worth it, but I want to be able to get something useful while hunting for these clues, which I can easily do with greater demons, red dragons, steel dragons and nechyreals, so not worth fighting hellhounds for them.

 

So yeah, you got the point of this thread, now answer the question.

Steel dragons. Never been a big fan of them, they drop mostly garbage, and the steel bars constantly on the floor just annoys me

 

Gargoyles. They take ages and their drops are basically worthless at this point

 

Greater demons are also kinda a hated task for me, while I could Zamorak GWD for it, I've never really been a big fan of them

Probably Araxxor, though it's a bit skewed as I've only successfully killed it once and had great difficulty securing that kill. My gear wasn't really top-notch and so it ended up being a bunch of long attempts only to stress at the end with prayer switching and what not. Was such a relief finally being able to kill it once and not having to go back for a while.

Glacors. I have killed well over 20000 of them. Never again.

 

Scorpions. The first time I died in RS was to a scorpion and I lost all my stuff. I hate scorpions.

Are you sure you got the name right?

 

Because I don't see how 20 blood runes, rune mace, rune full helm and dragon platelegs are garbage.

 

In fact these drops are worth quite a lot.

Not anymore they aren't

 

 

With the drops I mentioned you can get over 200K coins by killing 100 of steel dragons.

 

Most monsters don't even have drops worth near that with 300 kills.

2K/drop doesn't seem particularly impressive to me, especially next to P2P options like bossing.  But maybe that's just me.

Alright, fair enough.

 

I might disagree with most of the posts here, but that's ok. I still respect you guys.

 

But there is one thing I must point out.

 

Even boss monsters are guilty of dropping items that aren't worth a lot.

 

I mean the Kalphite Queen drops Zamorak wines.

That's true, usually because there is a small chance of a very valuable drop and that averages out to quite a bit (200k/kill average is what I've heard for QBD, for example).

Pretty sure I got the name right. They're basically pocket change to me considering the boss monsters that I kill. Steel dragons drop complete junk for me most of the time, and steel bars are not worth picking up considering the amount of time needed to pick them up compared to the amount of money/xp I'd get doing this.

I can make 400k+ in less than 10 minutes by soloing Nex, which is much more fun than killing Steel dragons for barely any loot.

Zamorak wines? You mean one of the Kalphite Queen's best drops, and an item that is rising like mad in anticipation of the Bonus XP Weekend and it's obvious impact on the herblore economy?

Alright, you got me there, bad example.

 

But she also drops rune hatchet, which does prove my point.

 

Alright, I'm done. I'm just gonna let you guys continue posting and not reply anymore. Because like I said I respect you guys.

The rune hatchet is worth almost the same as a rune full helm, an item which you claim is a valuable drop from steel drags >_>

I wouldn't call less than half it's value "almost the same", but rune hatchet is still the lowest value drop listed on the KQ's table so it isn't really a fair comparison IMO.

Yes, but if you're making 5M/hr elsewhere, 10-20k isn't much

Based on Blaze's monster killing habits I'm guessing his income/hr isn't quite 5m, was just guessing as to why he distinguished between rune hatchets and rune full helms.

Alright, alright, I will admit it was cowardly of me to say "I'm not posting here anymore."

 

This is a message board, and I should know by now that when I post there I will get a lot of people disagreeing with me, it's inevitable.

 

But anyway, I don't care about the money, I don't. If I did care about getting money I would have chopped down trees and sell the logs.

 

But nope, I don't care about the money at all, all I care about is having fun, and fighting monsters is what I consider to be fun.

 

But yeah I still respect all the posts on here besides mine.

I also hate steel dragons. Unless they give me a visage or an effigy!

 

And I agree.. cutting yew logs is very good money! I have cutted over 20,000 yew logs.
