I was just posting on another topic about the best skill to get 99 in. Granted, any 99 is a 99 and is worthy of praise, but some are less admirable than others. To me, these include the Cooking, Fletching, and to an extent Firemaking. These skills are way to easy to buy, meaning you don't have to work that hard to obtain them; patience and lots of clicking is all you need.







Cooking is way too easy nowadays because of the Cook-X option. If Skill Capes existed back in RSC, then a Cooking Cape would be a rarer sight, and very honorable, in my opinion.







Fletching, in which prices have been lowered due to autoers, is now easier than ever to buy. Just click a few times and your guy (or gal) fletches away worry free, while you go about doing whatever else. Way too easy, in my opinion.







Firemaking; it may have a cool emote ( <3: ), but it's easy to buy as well. It takes a bit more, because you can't really do much multi-tasking whilst firemaking. It requires concentration to keep a steady experience-flow. But still, much too easy to buy.







What about the other Capes? Everyone nowadays is going for these 3 capes mainly. I see them way too often. Their emote has lost it's glamour. Wow, you can fletch a bow in 5 seconds flat.. So can thousands of other people. Oh, you can flip a pie? Yep, so can thousands of others.







I'd like to see more originality from people nowadays in obtaining a 99 in a skill. Yea, it's still cool to have a 99 in anything, but think of something else besides these I've mentioned. How often do you see a "99 Herblore" thread, or even a "99 Runecrafting" thread? Not often at all.







So my question is: What do you think the least admirable Skill Cape would be? Do you think any of them are overrated? Share, elaborate, flame, praise. Whatever.







Note: This isn't a rant.. so yea. I have nothing against these people, I'm just saying it's too common nowadays.

Yay, I have the 2 easiest skill capes(cook and fletch). Yet i'm still bugged to see them, so I guess they arn't that common as you say if dozens of people ask me to do it each and everyday.







To me skill total capes would be alot better because you have to train a little of every skill instead of an easy one to 99 :pray:
Quit RuneScape :)

As for which aren't quite as impressive, since they're just so common, I think we can all agree on cooking and fletching.







As for the capes/emotes themselves.. I'd have to go with thieving. I think many of us (especially those of us who have the cape) can agree that the emote is very disappointing.

I think you have the definition of least-admirable mixed up.







Least-Admirable (adj) (leest-ad-mur-a-bull) - being non-honorable; not praise-worthy; having the quality of Multi-Taskery embued in it's fabrics.



ex) You are the least-admirable cook I've seen; you steal everyone elses' recipes and claim them for yourself!







See? I hope that cleared it up. Fishing and Woodcutting actually take time and dedication to do. You cannot buy those. Think of it this way: There are Supply-Skills,Supplied-Skills, and Independent Skills.







Supply Skills are skills that make the resources for the Supplied-Skills. These skills are:



Fishing



Woodcutting



Mining



Runecrafting



Hunting










Supplied Skills are skills that get resources from other skills. These skills are:



Smithing



Cooking



Fletching



Firemaking



Herblore



Crafting



Farming



Magic



Range






Independent Skills are skills that you don't use other skills to directly gain experience in that skill. These skills are:



Agility



Construction



Attack



Strength



Defense



Hitpoints



Thieving



Slayer

fletching you gain money, cooking cost a couple mil loss, firemaking from level 81 to 99 is 12mil not that much really







i would really like to see you buy herblore and cons







cons easily breaks 50m



and herblore is very diffcult to get the herbs and selling them

I was just thinking the same thing, foofoomagoo (nice name btw).







Construction is the one skill that you pretty much have to buy. It is semi-admirable to me; the fact that it's only accessable to rich people with lots of cash to spare turns me off of it.







Herblore you can supply yourself if you train combat a lot and keep all your herbs. But it is mostly a bought skill. Yet it takes a lot more time and patience to get 99 in Herblore, and is one of the highest ranked stats in my book.

Firemaking; it may have a cool emote ( Love ), but it's easy to buy as well. It takes a bit more, because you can't really do much multi-tasking whilst firemaking. It requires concentration to keep a steady experience-flow. But still, much too easy to buy.








Firemaking is not easy. Its rather expensive to buy, or if you go cheaper with cheaper logs, it takes even longer.

on the herblore note, my best friend farms non-stop and gotten 96 farming off herbs, and she is still only 91 herblore, and she has been doing this for about a year'ish, herblore can be bought, but it is pain in the behind

Well Lunar_Drifter did mention in his first post that all 99 skills are certainly admirable. Expanding on that, they all take a degree of patience and dedication. But that does not deny the fact that firemaking is one of the easier skills. Yes, it does take a few weeks unless you "no-life it" ( \<img src=/' /> ) but it's one of the faster skills in the game and not too expensive. I think this is particularly evident in the increasing number of people who we see setting 99 firemaking goals on various "Goals & Achievements" threads.







Personal experience there Tripsis? Haha.. Construction noob.







Joking, joking! (please don't ban meh! :XD: )








Lol I'll try to resist :wink: :twisted:

Now now, Spoofy-Woofy. Don't get your underwear in a wad. I didn't say actually achieving it was easy. I said buying it was easy. You could easily buy the logs, but it does take time and concentration, as I said.







Easy to buy, yet hard to carry it out, seeing as it's pretty uneventful.







Tinderbox -> log, move west, tinderbox -> log... You get the point.

in my opinion the least admirable skill cape would have to be construction.







a freind of mine maxed it in 4 days using oak larders, cost him something like 70m ( :shock: ) and its so easy to buy.



i think the cooking cape is cool though! well mostly cuz i like the colour :<img src=:' />







herblore, belive it or not, isn't so easy to buy, for 95k xp it costs about 400k in cash.



multiply that by 130 and you get a hellava lotta money!



but then again prayer pots probably arent the best method. :wink:
