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.

Thanks for reading!

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)


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