Xmas Event Summary

To start:
Tele to deamonheim, and speak to... the hatless Santa at the rewards trader.

1st Room:
Watch the pattern, match it. Repeat 3 times.
Pick up the snowman stuff, and leave.

2nd Room:
Move one "icicle block" at a time, as soon as you see the angel turn it's back. Don't try and do 2 at once, and yes, it is frustrating.

3rd Room:
Pick up trinket of sealification on floor.
Slide across the floor, using the onscreen arrows, and remember to press a bit before you want to turn.

4th Room:
Pick a door, and try and get through it, only one will work.
This door is unique to you, so make a note of it, and just work your way through by trial and error.
My doors were: 2, 2, 3, 2.

5th Room:
Just wait until the crab with a hat pops up, click him, and you'll try to catch him.
Usually you miss, eventually you catch him.

Speak to Santa.

Santa cannon, which has a 9x9 Snowsplosion emote, with snow splattering all around.
Salty claws hat, a wearable crab wearing a hat. Wow.
Seal of approval emote, where the player transforms into a seal and claps.

Access to:
- A large snow fight area, with a shortcut to pelt people, and lots of snow.
- A snowman creating area, also with snow.
- An ice skating area, with small sand piles to rest on.
- Giant xmas tree.
- A minigame based on the 3rd room, where you slide into different holes for different points.

90 Summoning

Chameleons! Gonna finish off my charms, hopefully get to 91/92.

Saturday, December 4, 2010

90 Prayer

Got 90 prayer, very fast. Summoning next. Decided not to do herb, and instead just do one massive daily run, hopefully eventually doing Fruit Trees and Trees, and perhaps all the herb, allotment, and flower patches. I'll see how it goes!

Farming (Herb) Notes

Herb patch locations:

Take glider to grand tree, and use fruit tree there.
Take spirit tree to gnome village, and use fruit tree there.
Teleport to ardougne, use the herb patch north, then take boat to brim.

2200 Total

135 Combat

Farming Notes

Only doing palm trees, because they're cheap and fast. Like 30m max for 90.

Farming run:
Teleport to camelot.
Run NORTH, take glider to grand tree.
Run downstairs, and SOUTH, to the GRAND TREE PATCH.
Teleport to ardougne, run SOUTH EAST to take boat to BRIM PATCH.

2 water runes, 3 law runes, 5 air runes.
4 palm tree saplings.
60 papaya fruits.

5 patches per day = 10509*5 = 52,545xp per day.
2,007,823xp to get = 2007823/52545 = 38.2 = 39 days.

Seed = 105.6k
Payment = 1318*15 = 19770
Total = 125,370 per seed.
Gp/xp = 125370/10509 = 11.9gp
This does not include the fact that I will get 6 coconuts from each tree, which can be sold to reduce my costs.

2007823/10509 = 191 seeds = 20.1m
191 * 15 = 2865 * 1318 =
Total cost = 20.3m

Construction Notes

Need 37 hammers for 90 con.

That's 740 points.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

85 Construction

God these levels are quick! Also, love playing sc.

Monday, November 29, 2010

90 Mining

Now time for some sc.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010


Tried hunting pengs with Gary today, and we ended up on a giant failtrain, going nowhere in the desert.

Task System

Well, along with a few other updates, Jagex released the task system today. As soon as I logged in, I was assaulted with notifications that I had completed 3 tasks, without moving a muscle. Righto.

So, this is the evolution of the Achievement Diaries we all know and love.

On first glance, this system makes no sense, with colours, ticks, and icons everywhere. After a few minutes however, its overall structure reveals itself.

The task system is divided into sections for each location, just like the achievement diaries.
The coloured circle on the bottom right of each task icon indicates its difficulty.

  • Green: Easy
  • Red: Medium
  • White: Hard
  • Purple: Elite
  • Lock: Requirements not met

If a tick is displayed on the task icon, and it has a gold border, you have completed it.

Darkness of Hollowvale

One more quest until mutated bloodvelds... Taking a break to get a couple of prayer levels first.

Friday, November 5, 2010

Slug Menace

Yay proselyte!

Sea Slug

Easy peasy sluggy squeezy.

The Temple at Senntisten

Very engrossing storyline, shame that the fight in the ice castle was so easy, only one sip of super sets needed, no food!

Great xp rewards, 33k prayer xp + 40k summoning xp!

Ancient curses! And a +12 prayer boost.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Devious Minds


Pretty good quest, entertaining storyline.

Recruitment Drive

Very short, quite fun puzzles though.

The Curse of Arrav

Nice xp reward, fairly fun.

Troll Romance

A cute quest, the main character was a bit pathetic though.

Shades of Mort'ton

Fairly quick quest, quite a big quest point reward. Repairing the temple was almost impossible, until a few more people came, and I helped organise each person's jobs.

98 Slayer + Missing My Mummy

Actually quite an enjoyable quest, lots of lovely xp!

Monday, November 1, 2010

My Training Plans

Prayer (-193m) (40 hours)
80-85 - Effigies / Dragon Bones from Slayer.
85-90 - (G Altar) 8200 Dragon Bones, costing about 41mgp.
90-99 - (G Altar) 30500 Dragon Bones, costing about 152mgp.
Note: Assuming Dragon Bones are 5k each.

Runecrafting (20m) (315 hours)
80-99 - (ZMI) 40kxp/hr = 275 hours.
80-99 - (ZMI) 30kxp/hr = 315 hours.
Note: The first estimate assumes accurate clicking, the second is more accurate.

Construction (-60/120m) (40/20 hours)
80-99 - (Oak Dungeon Doors + SC) ~60mgp costs. 600kxp/hr, so 20 hours.
80-99 - (Oak Dungeon Doors)  ~120mgp costs. 300kxp/hr, so 40 hours.
Note: This does not factor in the time to gain SC hammers.

Agility (0m) (150+ hours)
75-80 - (Ape Atoll) 45kxp/hr = 18 hours.
80-85 - (Dorgesh-Kaan) ?
85-90 - (Advanced Gnome) ?
90-99 - (Advanced Barbarian) 66kxp/hr = 116 hours
Note: This assumes a fairly average xp rate.

Mining (0m) (193 hours)
85-99 - (LRC Gold) 50kxp/hr = 193 hours
Note: Average rate assumed & all ores will be used for smelting.

Smithing (+11m) (140 hours)
85-99 - (Goldsmelting + Gaunts) 70kxp/hr = 140 hours
Note: Ores will be from 99 mining, goldsmithing gauntlets used.

Firemaking (-3m) (57 hours)
90-99 - (Maple logs) 135kxp/hr = 57 hours








Mithril Dragons

Because I always forget what to bring:

Normal range equipment + ruby bolts (e) for first half of kills.

2 anti fires
3 prayer pots
1 range pot
Slayer ring
Games neck
Rest filled with sharks

90 Firemaking

This was more tiring than I thought. Glad to be back to slayer.

Friday, October 22, 2010

97 Slayer

Time for 90 fm!

80 Prayer

:) Did 70 to 80 for free. Go me! Got nearly 1k d bones saved up too.

Discovered W148 Daemonheim is a truly amazing place for assists, got all my effigies done in a few mins!

Champion's Challenge

Alright, I'm going to run through where & how I am going to kill the creatures effectively:

Imp Champion
Range around Karamja volcano. There are 5 spawns here, and they are not too spread out.

Goblin Champion
Probably Goblin Village, as there are a lot of goblins here. Ranging will probably be quickest, although using the free to cast mage spell is an alternative.

Skeleton Champion
Probably the 4th level of the Stronghold of Security, using melee. Although they will be slower to kill, it is one of the few places where there are significant amounts. However, I will look into other places with weaker skeletons.

Zombie Champion
Use Armoured Zombies, which I can probably tank. These are good melee xp, and are afk, which is very good.

Hobgoblin Champion
The area with snape grass spawns has a fair amount of them, very concentrated, so would be good for obtaining a scroll.

Giant Champion
Edgeville dungeon has a lot of hill giants, and should be quiet on a P2P world, and easy to complete.

Banshee Champion
Ground floor of the slayer tower, as they are weak and easy to kill.

Ghoul Champion
Earth Warrior Champion
Aberrant Spectre Champion
Jogre Champion
Mummy Champion
Lesser Demon Champion

85 Firemaking

Well I got 5 firemaking levels, fairly easy and fast. I tried dungeoneering but.. I really dislike it, had to stop at 55!

Monday, October 11, 2010

96 Slayer

Got 96 slayer, now it's time for 20 dung levels! Going to have Gary teaching me how to team dung, need to do some solo first though.

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Ice Strykewyrms

Approx 1.3k mage xp per kill.
300 slayer xp per kill.

Task of 200 = 60k slayer xp
Task of 200 = 260k mage xp.

Familiar Glitch

Alright, so I was at iron drags, had an invent of d bones, summoned War Tortoise beast of burden so I could store them and carry on slaying.

When I went to do this, I discovered it was almost full of jewellery and gems.

At first, I just didn't get it. The tort had been out for about 12 seconds, what happened?

I then worked it out.

About 2-3 weeks ago, I summoned a couple of magpies, but their timers ran out, and I didn't get a chance to collect their items.

So, the items from the magpie somehow made their way into my tortoise's inventory.

Seriously, what the hell?

Enhanced Excalibur

Yay! Did seer's diary easy, medium, hard and got 16k pray xp, and enhanced excalibur. This weapon's special attack heals 200hp, and increases defence by 15% for a period of time.


These are my long term goals for RuneScape:

Red partyhat.
Slayer cape.

90+ all.

Reaching maximum weight of 1129kg
Reaching minimum weight of -38kg

All elite achievement diaries completed.

99 Magic

No. More. Goddamn. Alching.

Time for slayer now :)

Monday, September 20, 2010


Whilst at my alching class in varrock west (had a max of 5 people alching in time), found a comedic genius.

Glitching to run 2x as fast as usual through varrock bank, shouting random things whilst waving a slayer bell. His first one was his best, "Doomsday!!". Here's a pic of a later one.

Dung Notes

I need to start planning high dung...

Alright, so go world 117, and just do large dungs in teams of 5, all cb. This should be the best xp.

Sunday, September 19, 2010

95 Magic

4 levels left!

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Miscellania (2)

Wow, this place is great for making cash from herbs. These are the results of ONE day's resource gathering.

Total input = 75k.
Total output = ~300k.
Total profit per day = ~225k.

So that's an easy 225k per day, without any effort, regardless if I log on or not.

What I'm going to do is just keep putting money in, then use the herbs I get for herblore. Because I over tripled my original investment, herblore will become pretty cheap! (Say I use 30m worth of herbs from my kingdom, they only cost me ~10m!)


6 kwuarm 41648
3 harra 5830
5 ranarr 32875
2 lanta 18758
2 cadantine 5830
13 tarro 9321
7 irit 19103
5 dwarf weed 37745
8 avantoe 41648
50000 -> 212788

273 coal 83538
1 uncut emerald 2738
25000 -> 86276

Thursday, September 16, 2010


Completed these two quests finally, now I can invest in my kingdom and make a nice profit. Going to put 10 workers on herbs (most profitable), and the remaining 5 on fishing (can cook for slayer).

Best of all, my chrome extension tells me how much is in the coffers, and how happy my citizens are!

I'm going to go and top up approval rating and cash once a week, as this is supposed to be the optimum amount.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

94 Magic

Usually I wouldn't post a fairly easy level like this, but I had 2 reasons.
1. The font for level ups and other things has changed. I don't like it at all.
2. I can now use 2 vital spells, ice barrage and vengeance.

Monday, September 13, 2010

High Calchemy

Alright, so, I'm alching maple longbow (u)s. Here are the calculations:
Buy for 95 each.
High alchemy for 192 each.
Nature rune is 204 coins.

204 + 95 = 299 = cost per alch.
299 - 192 = 107 = loss per alch.

Xp per alch = 65.
107/65 = 1.6gp/xp.

Very, very good.

95 Slayer

A nice achievement. Now onto alching!

Sunday, September 12, 2010

99 Ranged

Yummy. Next I'm getting 95 slayer, then alching to 99 magic.

Saturday, September 4, 2010

98 Ranged

Only one level left. :)

Friday, September 3, 2010

85 Smithing

Got 85 smithing on gold ores, now back to my love, Slayer!

Sunday, August 29, 2010

85 summoning + mining

Got both of these in the last week or so, didn't post the summoning pic when I originally got it.
