I should've known better

So I wrote a song in my anguish of not getting any pneumatic gloves. Also, it's about my not getting any onyx from 3 gem finding scrimshaws.

New vids are up!

So I made some more new vids finally! So I guess I had a little bit more than five, cause I did a couple earlier in the month about the chaos dwarf battlefield and my getting void. I'll post links here:   So then ever since I got void I've been doing automatons on and off. I started with the Guardians and then moved on to the tracers, because the gloves they drop are more valuable. So, basically all that time I spent getting void(a whole day pretty much) was kind of wasted, because I barely ever fight the guardians anymore, and probably when I do again I'll have gotten pneumatic gloves, and sold them and bought robes of subjugation. So yeah, here are the links to my guides of all the Automatons:   Ok so what else have I been doing in Runescape? I basically rebuilt my house, and so that means I need two more head trophies for my two skill halls. I pretty much decided that one of them was going to be the kalphite queen head, and I'm thinking the other one might be an abyssal demon head. That also means I need two more fish trophies, but I think if I just go ahead and make a ton of juju fishing potions again, then I will probably at least get a big shark again. Anyways, without further ado, my kalphite queen guide:   Ok so one last thing before I go. I made another superior gem finding scrimshaw with poor results, as per usual. The results of the scrimshaw can be found here:   And with that, I bid you adeu. Good night(*ahem*morning*) and big balls... oh wait, that's the Wipeout signoff. I guess I'll just say, that's all for today.

07 vs eoc, tired, and chaos dwarf battlefield

Ok, so I'm really torn between the 07 servers and eoc. I feel like I've kind of hit a wall in 07 and it's not really very fun anymore. There's a reason it took me over 8 years to get 83+ all skills in the main game, and that is the grind. I really don't feel like spending another 8 years to level up my 07 account so I guess I'm going to let it be for a bit, and maybe go back to it to make vids about quests maybe.   The next thing I wanted to talk about is that I'm uber tired, because I stayed up all night last night. And, all I have in my stomach is coffee juice and yogurt. To be fair, the juice is v-8 fusion, so it's somewhat healthy. So anyways, I was up making a vid about the chaos dwarf battlefield, and then fighting automatons only to find out that my ahrim's really wasn't helping me as much as I thought it was. I also found out that polypore and sol are better than ahrims staff. So then just before I was editing my vid I was doing pest control, because the guy that let me know about the ahrims thing was using void and doing really well with it. I also did a little research and found out that robes of subjugation are the only non degradable mage robes that actually increase damage, and not by much, so void is really the best if you're not going to be damaged much.   Anyways, I made and uploaded a vid about the chaos dwarf battlefield. I got 3 d picks in a week, and it's really easy, and the only reason I lasted so long was because of momentum and afking.

Family Crest and Monkeys

So, I did the family crest quest and chronozon was pretty much underwhelming, I was actually somewhat worried that I would take off all his hp without having used every blast spell on him, since each one did so much damage. Anyways, no pkers so that was good, and now I'll probably start doing a lot more gold mining and smelting to get my smithing lvl up, and make a good bit of gold on gold bars. Although, I may use quite a bit of the gold bars I get, because I do have quite a few gems to make into jewelry.       So I got a monkey task from turael while cancelling the killerwatts task, and I decided to do it on gorillas on ape atoll. These guys heal up when they get low on hp, so if you're somewhat of a low level, then it can be somewhat hard to kill them. I guess I'm right at the level where it's pretty good combat xp to kill them on a task, because I can't always kill them before they heal, and the more they heal the more xp I get from damaging them. Now, they wouldn't be good slayer xp, since I'm pretty sure they don't give more slayer xp for the amount of hp they heal. And, it can take 5-7 minutes just to kill one of them, so unless you're a really high level, and can kill them quickly before they heal, don't do them just for the slayer xp. I just killed them for the combat xp. Also I was getting medium ninja monkey bones by using the method of having karim kill some monkeys the other day, so I thought I would share with everyone how exactly to go about doing that. I got 5 of the bones the other day, and last night I was able to get another 2 after having failed once and shown my incompetence another time. I also got 4 gorilla gree grees and 4 bearded gorilla gree grees, because I found out that when you use mage on the bearded gorillas they don't heal, unless you go near them.

Funny joke that I was told a long time ago and Roflmao'd the first time I heard it and every time I tell it.

So there were these three guys at the gates of heaven and God tells them, whichever one of you has the most pitiful story will get in. So, the first guy says, I was busy at work one day, and I get a call from one of my neighbors saying "I think someone is breaking into your home! You better come home and see what's up." So I came home and the door was unlocked, so I took a look around, and nothing was stolen. I was about to give up and go back to work when I looked out on the balcony, and there was a guy hanging from the railing. So, I went out there and began pounding on his hands, but he wouldn't let go, so I got a hammer and smashed his fingers and he finally fell. But, his fall was broken by a bush, so I got my freezer and threw it down on top of him. Then, I felt so bad about what I did that I got my gun and shot myself, and so here I am. Then, the second guy says, well I was doing some rigorous exorcises on my 14th floor balcony and I guess I got too rigorous and fell over the railing. Luckily I was able to catch the 12th floor balcony's railing and hang on, but then not too much later some crazy guy came and started pounding on my hands. Luckily I was still able to hold on, but then he went and got a hammer and smashed my fingers so I fell off. Luckily my fall was broken by a bush, but then I looked up, and the last thing I saw was a freezer coming down on top of me, and here I am. Then, the last guy says, well I was breaking into this apartment, but before I could take anything I heard someone coming in the door, so I decided to hide in the freezer...   Who made it into heaven? You decide...

More Quests and Clue rewards

So I did a few quests in the past few days. One small favour is one that most people hate, but I don't think it's so bad. There are also a few ppl in my clan that like it. I made a vid of the combat part of it and the rewards. There is also a combat part where you have to fight a few dwarves, but that isn't too hard if your a decent lvl or have the protect melee prayer. I also did the first two myreque quests, and sorry I forgot to vid the skeletal hellhound in the first one, but that one was pretty easy since I had protect melee. My rune longsword damaged it pretty easily and the blast spell was even better. So anyways, the Gadderranks combat part wasn't too hard either, but the part where I had to accompany Ivan Strom to the temple and keep him alive was particularly hard. I ended up spending 60k on 5 restore pots to make guthix balance pots only to find out that I needed the ivandis rod to make it work, and I couldn't get that until the next part of the quest. So, it took me several tries before I finally found this one safe spot where Ivan Strom wouldn't get attacked.     So I also made some vids about clue scrolls. First one is about me doing a clue from the pickpocket to the chest at the end. Scond one is just 13 snapshots of clue rewards that I did last night. I thought I would do a lot more clues before I sold all my clue stuff to make bank space. So, at this point I've gotten 3 zammy pages from all the clues I've done, and sold one for 400k so far. I have someone wanting to buy the other 2 in about a week when he gets enough money for them.

Quests and Clue

So I've been questing a little bit lately, and making vids of each one. It's very tiresome trying to edit the clips that I take down to a watchable length, and the quest vids haven't been getting that many views, so I don't think I'll keep making vids on every quest, but I'm not sure which ones I should make vids on and what parts to actually vid. I don't know if people would rather see the combat, or see the hard bits to learn how to do it themselves. I'll post links to each vid down below.       So I decided that this morning I was going to make a vid of me pickpocketing and doing a clue without stopping the vid at all. I actually got kind of lucky in a few aspects of the clue, but you'll just have to watch to find out how. I couldn't figure out how to fix the aspect ratio. It was fine on vegas movie studio, but when I upload it to youtube it skews it all funny, so if somebody could help me out with that it would be much appreciated. Clue from start to finish     So my question for this blog post is pretty much: What quests should I make vids of, and for those vids what parts of the quest should I make a vid of?

A side note on luck

The other day more than a week ago I was doing jungle cleanup, and not having very good luck either. So anyways, a guy was just standing there, and he asked me what I was doing. So, I explained the whole concept of jungle cleanup to him and added that I wasn't having very good luck at the moment. Then he said something that blew my mind. He said that he doesn't believe in luck. I asked him why, and he said something to the effect of that if you do something long enough you will eventually get good outcomes. So basically you make your own luck. But, I'm here to tell you that some people are lucky and get good drops on their first kill. Sure you can kill 1k of something and you will probably get the drop, but what about the people who get it on the first kill and then quit doing it. Surely they must have been lucky to get a drop so soon. I guess if those people play long enough things will eventually balance out, and they will be unlucky in something else. I guess what I'm trying to say is that maybe there is no such thing as luck, it probably is all just random, but you have to have a word that encompasses the idea of someone having good things happen to them quickly and often. I sure would like to call it bad luck that I didn't get one vine whip drop in 1k jadinkos, or that out of 30+ clues none of the 8 god pages I got were zammy. I did finally get one so my luck is kind of balancing out, but I talked to one guy who got a zammy page on his first clue, and yet another guy who did only a bunch of clues and got 2 zammy pages. What about the people who get lucky early on and then quit the game before they can get unlucky? Maybe getting lucky early on will cause people to want to stay, who knows.   My question to everyone is: Do you think that there really is luck, or is it just a term we use for good fortune and everything balances out in the end?

Zogres and... Zammy page!

Ok, so I finally got a zammy page! It was actually just one clue scroll that I did at that time. I just decided to do one clue before I went to bed, so I went to ham to pickpocket and got a clue before I even got anything worth keeping. Then I went to do it and 3/4 of the legs in the clue were uri's emotes. You can imagine by the time I got the third uris emote I was thinking this seems promising 3 uris emotes and it ended on one too. I then opened the chest and there was the zammy page, and I yelled for joy! Here is a link to a pic of the zammy page in my bank.   Zammy page   So today I decided I wanted to use all of those 27 innoculation bracelets I had in my bank. I think I remember making about that many back when it actually was 07, but at least this time I made them before I did a ton of zogre killing. I found a guide on the zogre flesh eaters quest and it said you can use crumble undead on the zogres and slash bash, so I thought this could be awesome. So I used crumble undead on slash bash a little more than a week ago and beat him with ease since he was safe spottable. So today I bought 1600 chaos runes to use on zogres, I think I bought 1k of them for 130 gp ea, which seems like bad price gouging, but I saw someone selling for 145 ea the other day. And, I figured there weren't very many people selling chaos runes anyways, so I would take what I could get. Here are some links to pics of me casting crumble undead, and a vid of me using zogre coffin keys and killing a zogre.   Crumble undead 1 Crumble undead 2

Dragon Slayer and Law running

So, I just did Dragon Slayer, and hopefully I'll be doing heroes quest soon. I vidded all of the dragon slayer quest except for the best part, and I've been kicking myself for it ever since. Elvarg wasn't actually that hard, and I was all prepared for a tough fight too, because Warlock kept talking about how hard it was. It was a little scary at first when she took down my hp quit a bit, but I ate swordies and continued hacking away with my rune longsword(I just never got around to getting a better weapon), and after the first 10 seconds I realized that this fight was going to be a piece of cake. I think my stats were 50 att, 34 str, 34 def, and 42 hp, so they weren't really low, but I'm curious to see how low of stats it's possible to beat her with.     So I also made a vid about law running, and I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about when I say law running, but I had no idea it was actually a thing when I started on the 07 servers. I mean, I saw the law running and nat running worlds on the newer game, but I always just thought it meant a world where everybody can go runecraft at the same time. So, you can probably imagine how ecstatic I was to find out I could get free laws, and sometimes even get ess back in return so I didn't have to use up my own ess.     The last thing I wanted to talk about was a funny short story. I was trying to think of what I was doing before I went to bed last night, and all I could think of was that it was something in which I seemed to be making no headway, and the outcomes seemed to be hopeless. Then I realized that I was doing clue scrolls. It's funny, because I seem to have not been getting very many good rewards. Yes, I got a black kite h4(which I actually ended up just giving away in response to a thing the bulletin at church told us to do), and a black kite (g), and I got quite a few pages(none of them zammy), but I haven't gotten any rewards worth more than 50k yet, and it is feeling rather hopeless. But, I do remember getting some pretty sweet rewards in the main game after doing a ton of clues, so I will press on and hope for better clues in the future.

Gem mining and selling, and clues

So earlier I was gem mining and I was selling gems to gabooty for trading sticks and buying red topaz machetes to sell for 40-80k each. Then I actually bought ~1100 opal, ~550 jade, and ~260 topaz for 300k gp. So, it probably took me about 80-85 world hops, maybe less because at one point I just stayed logged in while I read the forums here at sal's, so I could post and get up to 30 posts. Nevertheless, I got up to 125k trading sticks, which could be up to 52 topaz machetes worth over 3mil gp. So how's that for multiplying my money?   So later on I decided to do a bunch of lvl 1 clue scrolls and see if any zammy pages would pop up... 30+ clues later and no zammy pages... 8 total sara and guthix pages but no zammy... I made a vid of me pickpocketing ham until I got a clue, and then a vid of some of my clue rewards.
