16th 99 and 2300 total levels

15 July 2009 - 04:05 PM

I had gotten some Firemaking Brawlers so I decided to knock out another 99. Firemaking Brawlers are great. It took 4K Magic Logs to go from 94-99 FM.

99 #9 - SUMMONING!

06 September 2008 - 08:03 PM

I finally knocked out 99 Summoning!

Posted Image

I was already 99 Slayer before Summoning, but I still did a lot of Slayer for Charms. I also did some Rock Lob bursting, but I limited myself by not buying any Death Runes. No idea how much it cost in total. I'm pretty sure I don't want to know :D . Just got a Red Dragon Egg. Time to go hatch it.

I was racing a Clanmate to 2000 Total Levels and I decided to end the competition in style...

Complete Varrock Achievement Diary Guide

11 September 2007 - 07:07 PM

If you try to do the Varrock Diary tasks in the order that Jagex lists them you will be running around all over the place and doing a lot of needless, duplicate work. So I tried to group the tasks together and make routes that will help you complete the tasks a lot faster. This guide assumes that you have all of the necessary pre-requisites for each task and groups the Easy, Medium and Hard tasks together.

(TIP - If you are within 6 Levels of the Farming or Smithing requirements, you can try making Dave's Evil Stew. If you decide to do this, then catch Hellrats in Evil Dave's Basement. Hellrats count towards getting your Cat Medal and you can stock up on the spices you will need for your stews)

Some tasks couldn’t be grouped together. These include:

Select a colour for a new kitten – If you don’t have a kitten or non-overgrown cat, go to Gertrude’s house west of Varrock and talk to her while wearing a Ring of Charos(a). Buy a kitten and select it’s color. If you already have a kitten or non-overgrown cat, you must either wait for it to grow to an overgrown cat, release it, or trade it in West Ardougne for 100 Death Runes (if its not a kitten). Since you have to catch 100 rats with a non-overgrown cat, it’s best to get a kitten and let it grow into a cat before you try catching the rats. So you might want to do this first.

Teleport to the Digsite using a digsite pendant – Go to any furnace with a Necklace Mould, a Gold Bar, a Cut Ruby, 1 Cosmic Rune, and 5 Fire Runes/Fire Staff. Craft a Ruby Necklace, enchant it, and use it to tele to the Digsite.

Talk to Romily Weaklax and give him a wild pie – Romily Weaklax is located on the ground floor of the Cooking Guild and you need a Chef’s Hat or Cooking Cape to enter the guild. Wild Pies cost around 10K to buy from another player or you can make your own with 85 cooking, raw bear, raw rabbit, and raw chompy meat. Obviously the raw chompy is the hardest ingredient to gather as they require Ogre/Composite Ogre Bow, Ogre/Brutal Arrows, Bellows, and Toads. If you decide to make your own, you may want to make several and sell them, as they had a decent market before this (because of the +5 Slayer effect), and their demand has gone up. Also, since the cooking level is so high, you may want to use the Lunar Bake Pie spell so you don’t burn any.

Make a Varrock teleport tablet on a mahogany lectern – Luckily you can use anybody’s lectern. You wouldn’t want to create a mahogany lectern just for this as the lectern requires gold leaf.

Use the Home Teleport spell in the Ancient Magicks spellbook to teleport to Edgeville – If you aren’t on Ancients, the easiest way to do this is to use a Pharaoh’s Sceptre and use the last teleport option to go to the Ancient Magic Temple. Climb down the temple, go in the back entrance, and pray at the altar. Then use the Home Teleport Spell. Then use the Pharaoh’s Sceptre to switch back to normal Magic. If you don’t have a Pharaoh’s Sceptre, you will have to use Carpet Rides or a Camulet to get to the Ancient Magic Temple.

I've grouped the rest of the tasks together, listed the items that are needed, and provided a route to follow:

Items Needed: Poison Ivy seed (if you don’t already have a grown Poison Ivy bush), any Pickaxe.

Start Location: Champion’s Guild south of Varrock (Combat Bracelet will tele you there)

Enter and exit the Champion’s Guild. Go to the bush patch just west of the Guild. Pick a Poison Ivy if you already have a grown Poison Ivy bush, otherwise plant a Poison Ivy seed (takes about 2 ½ hours to grow). Head southeast and jump over the Fence and back. Head northeast to the southeast mining location and mine one iron ore.

Dial "DKR" to come back through the Fairy Rings. Head northeast and use the Spirit Tree to go to any other location and come back. Head east and use the shortcut under the wall surrounding Varrock. Pickpocket a guard in the courtyard in front of the castle. Enter the castle and pick a fruit from the White Tree in the garden east of the castle. Enter the Castle and climb to the top of the castle in the southeast corner. Teleport to Varrock. Buy a Varrock Herald for 50 gp from Benny just northeast of you. Head west to Zaff’s Superior Staffs and buy a Battlestaff. Head south to Thessalia’s Fine Clothes shop and have her give you a makeover. Cancel out of the makeover. Head south down the road until you run into a stray dog. Use a bone on the dog. Head west to the Apothecary. The Apothecary will give you a Strength potion for 5gp, a Limpwurt Root, and a Red Spider Egg. Head east to the Anvil Room just west of Aubury's Rune Shop and smith an Addy Medium Helmet. Go into Aubury’s Rune Shop and have Aubury teleport you into the Rune Essence mine. Leave the mine. Head southeast through the gate and go into Dimintheis’s house. Drop your Family Crest Guantlets and ask Dimintheis for a new pair. Go into the Fancy Dress Shop next door and trade your 2 Dashing Kebbit furs and 800 gp for a Spottier Cape.
