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

– Big Chompy Bird Hunting

            – Sheep Herder

            – Roving Elves

                – Waterfall Quest

                – Regicide

                    – Underground Pass

                        – Biohazard

                            – Plague City

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.
