Fishing Frenzy! 99 Fishing!

As you know, I’ve been working on 99 fishing in the background but about 6 months as it’s easy to AFK.

I’ve finally reached 99 today which I celebrated with my friend Bratty (Bratacus) (the one in the bunny ears).

No idea where the image for 96 is, may not have taken one.

Woah We’re Halfway There! 92 Fishing!

As you know I prefer to do skills which I can afk such as Woodcutting (my favourite skill), Cooking etc. As I’ve got 99 Woodcutting/Cooking I’ve had to do Fishing (which I used to hate!) so I can continue to watch Netflix or browse reddit etc.

So while I can’t pay as much attention to Runescape and do a skill like mining or agility (to contribute to my Road to Prif journey), I’ll fish.

Whilst 99 in any skill is obviously a goal, fishing was originally one of my long term goals as it wasn’t a skill I enjoyed and it seemed months if not years away from happening. As I write this post I’m now 92 fishing with only about 40k xp to hit 93. It now feels a lot closer and whilst I’m only over halfway to 99 xp wise, I feel I could be at 99 within the month.

So this new deep sea fishing platform is very nice, I’ve swapped out fishing guild for it. I’ve mainly been using the “Net Swarm” part of it where you randomly fish various high level fish such as Manta Rays, Sailfish, Blue Blubber Jellyfish etc.

Since it’s release, I’ve fished a little over 19 million GP!

I have just over 50 million GP worth of fish in my bank.

I’ve also had 2 treasure turtle loots worth about 860k.

Just need to decide when to sell it, do I sell it now or wait until say 2 weeks before the next Double XP weekend and sell it then when it will hopefully be worth even more and I’ll have even more to sell? I’m leaning towards waiting as I’ve got quite a bit of money at the moment anyway.

I’ve not put my Road to Prif on the backburner completely, I’ve been slowly training the skills when I can and I’m currently at the following levels:

71/75 Mining

57/75 Agility

51/75 Dungeoneering

So still a long way off but slowly getting there. I was hoping to do the afkable mining at Keldagrim when I hit level 68 mining but I don’t have the strength or the quest requirements for it and while it might be worth doing to get to 99 if I ever go for it, I don’t think it’s worth it just to get another 4 levels until I can enter Prif.

75 Treasure Hunter Keys

Today I purchased 75 Treasure Hunter Keys in Runescape, they cost £13.99 and I opened them straight away taking note of what I received to get a rough idea on what £13.99 gets you (mainly in xp).

Obviously this will differ completely on the account, for example before I started I used some hearts of ice to freeze all of my 99’s so I didn’t get any xp in those as I’m not interested in that. Also, it’s level dependent so the higher the level the more xp you get so yours may vary slightly.

I’ll start off with the items I got which aren’t worth any money or xp such as clothing.

Saphire Golem Torso, Diviners Footwear, Fletchers Legwear.

I also got 450 Vibrant energy which I find hard to work out the xp rate for, I think it’s worth just over 1k xp but it depends what you use it for. I’ll probably use it to put it towards creating a boon (costs 1000) which gives 10% bonus xp which is more useful.

The rest of the items either have an xp value, a gp value or both (such as mahogany logs are worth gp but you can use them on construction to give 140xp per plank.

The table below shows a full breakdown.

Mining has a significantly higher amount of XP as I used all of my global lamps/stars/chaos tombs on it as that is the skill I’m currently needing to level up to get into prif. I didn’t actually get any xp boosts for mining otherwise.

So the highlights of this are £13.99 got me:

402,217.5 XP and 170,549 GP (this assumes I use the items for xp rather than selling)

or

384,655 XP and 290,499 GP (this assumes I sell all items rather than use the applicable ones for XP gain)

The Road to Prif (25/02/2018)

Started off today with a spot of fishing, hit level 83 and moved back to constructing Mahogany Dining Room Tables. Only 800 planks to go to hit level 75! Spent so much money getting these last 10 levels, about 7mill I think.

After only about an hour, I hit 75!

Next I decided to go and train mining again, it’s my highest level of the 3 remaining skills and for me, it’s probably the least boring although I haven’t played enough dungeoneering to work out if I like it yet. Got to level 65 mining, mainly from iron ore in Falador mines but I also mined 3 coal divine rocks too which is where I actually hit the level.

On Friday when I played some dungeoneering with friends, the xp rate even on double xp weekend was poor and slow for me.

As I write this I’m waiting on my new wireless gaming headset arriving from Amazon. Years ago with Prime, Amazon used to use DPD for next day delivery and you’d get a text around 8am with a one hour timeslot from DPD, name of the driver, brilliant service. But for the last year or two they’ve been using Amazon Logistics which is still a good service but compared to their old method with DPD, it’s just not the same. There’s no tracking information whatsoever, no morning text and you have to wait in all day from 8am to 9pm.

Also, out of the last 5 deliveries I’ve had for next day prime, they’ve said next day at the point of order, they’ve even text me to say “your order has been dispatched and will be delivered tomorrow (DATE).” – brilliant! But then the next day it’s been getting postponed to the day after. I rang Amazon about it and at first they denied it but I forwarded them the emails I had and screenshots and texts and they eventually apologised about lying to me on the phone and said their was dispatch issues, but this happned 3 times in a row.

Hopefully Amazon can continue to improve their logistics side and offer detailed tracking on normal prime deliveries in the same way they do for prime now deliveries which even includes map of where the van is and which drop number you are.

Anyway, back to Runescape!

Another friend of mine has told me about Lava Flow Mines in Keldagrim which are a good method to afk mine, which is definitely my preferred method of training, it’s slower but I prefer to do a skill while I watch Netflix or do some web design or write these blog posts. I need 68 mining (another 3 levels) and 77 strength (another 3 levels) then I can start the quest required.

Got another fishing level today and did some divination with a friend (Bratty) who taught me about entering the rifts and creating divine locations and such which was cool. Got to level 61.

Done a small amount of Agility had barbarian outpost and got level 57 before moving back to fishing while I write quests for our upcoming MMORPG game World Factions.

The Road to Prif (24/02/2018) – Part 2

Following on from my last post, I’ve been skilling some more, I continued mining until I hit level 64 which is a pretty pathetic attempt I know but I just hate the skill so much, it gets boring very fast.

Went back to bank and realised I had more protean packs, opened them all and ended up with 750 protean planks so I went back to my POH and made a load of Mahogany dining tables.

Got a lot of levels and ended on about 67 I think, didn’t want to give up on getting to 75 otherwise it’s going to cost a lot more if I try after DXP weekend so I went and got some Mahogany planks made, bought some more from the GE and went back to grinding Mahogany dining tables before realising it was easier to AFK and less bank trips to do Mahogany armchairs, plus they conveniently make 26 armchairs from 2 trips so it’s nicer math.

Here’s another nice little gif I made.

While I was making armchairs, the Detroit Red Wings game started so I put that on while I skill.

Shortly after putting the game on I started losing my sanity a bit doing armchairs as they take a lot longer so I went back to Mahogany dining room tables, make your mind up Feinraf!

Conveniently while doing construction I also found a funny image on reddit r/runescape. I guess a lot of other people are doing construction too during DXP.

Took a quick break from Construction as I opened my treasure hunter chests and got more protean memory so I quickly opened those and got another 1 level in divination which took me to 59, close to 60.

I got 2 strange rocks today from Construction, and had 2 from hunter and 2 from runecrafting in my bank so I also placed them on the statue in varrok museum for around 5k experience per skill .

As I write this final paragraph, it’s 2am so I’m not going to complete my goal of 75 construction tonight but will be more than enough time to do it tomorrow. I’ll finish this post with an overview of my skills progress (won’t include quests this time as it hasn’t changed) and then a quick table of my gainz.

The Road to Prif (24/02/2018)

It’s DXP weekend again and again I haven’t prepared for it, even less than the last time! It’s Saturday evening so only got a day and a half left and to be honest I’ve had a pretty relaxed weekend where I’ve actually enjoyed the playing the game.

Started off by doing some fishing on Friday and got 1 level. Then a friend of mine started using their protein gear so I decided to use mine too. Alongside portables, I got several crafting levels which took me to my goal of 75 and I used the bars to get me to 74 smithing, got to 75 with some steel bars I had in my bank. Used some planks to get a couple of levels in construction and some energy to get me a couple of levels in divination.

I also did a dungeon for the first time in a long long time with Ross, Cassy and Draga which got me to 50 dungeoneering and today I did my first two sinkholes (I’d never actually heard of them) my friend Bratty told me how to complete them. I actually got a nice amount of dungeoneering experience form a large lamp which took me to level 51.

 

As it stands here are are the requirements, green = complete, orange = in progress, red = haven’t started. Simple.

– Making History

    – The Restless Ghost

    – Priest in Peril

– Catapult Construction

    – Regicide

– Within the Light

    – Mourning’s Ends Part II

        – Mourning’s Ends Part I

I spent some time at Barbarian Outpost agility course with Bratty too before moving to Brimhaven and getting roughly 45 tickets and completing some sort of task, not sure what it was which required 30 tickets in a row.

Right now I’m mining iron and mithril in falador mines, going to keep going as high a level as I can but I really hate the skill so not sure I’ll stick it out to 75. One thing that’s made it easier is Bratty has shown me where a deposit box is! I’ve actually mined here loads and never realised it was there. (Mixing things up a bit and uploading a gif above! I’m still getting used to the software, not too sure why it made me drag twice so you can see a little box at the beginning).

At the end of my last blog post I was chopping Mahogany logs in Karamja with the aim of making planks to level up construction to 75. Once I finish mining I’m going to move back to the logs I got from Karamja, make them into planks and keep going with my goal of 75 construction.

 

The Road to Prif (18/01/2018)

Today marks the start of my journey to gaining access to Prifddinas in Runescape.

World of Warcraft: Moved to US

I’ve officially moved over to the US servers on World of Warcraft, obviously I still have my EU characters but I don’t plan on playing on them very often, maybe just if me and Ossy decide to make a video of some kind.

The reason I’ve moved across is because the majority of people I know who play are from the US or play on the US servers so it makes way more sense.

Draga FireHawk sent me a recruit a friend link so we’ve been levelling a chracter together, I named it Feinraf and it’s a Shaman as that’s what I played the majority of the time on EU. We get awesome XP rates playing together so I’ve only been levelling that one when we play together.

I’m currently level 38 on that. The gear, it’s so ugly! Since me and Draga have been levelling so quickly, our gear hasn’t quite caught up, we’ve found that in certain parts of dungeons our gear has been really bad and therefore we’ve died quicker than expected but overall we’ve got through them pretty easily.

Draga has been playing as Tank and I’ve been playing as Healer so we’ve queued for dungeons fairly quickly.

The second character I’ve made is a Paladin which is currently level 24 and named Talthorian. I’ve never played a Paladin before but I’m enjoying it, just playing through this on my own when Draga isn’t online.

Hopefully this is the first of many World of Warcraft related posts.

Rocket League

rocket league first ranked match

Been a while since I made a post. Decided to purchase Rocket League finally after wanting to play it for at least a year. Worth it.

Mainly been playing unranked so far, I get a good few goals in during my games but I really suck at defending so going to have to play more of the training modules to get better at that.

Played my first ranked match today solo and won it, screenshot below:

rocket league first ranked match

Since then, I played a second ranked match and lost 7-4, then played 2 ranked doubles with my friend Matt and won both of them.
