I've decided that for the goals side of things, I'll get the whip before the enhanced excalibur. Why on earth did it take me so long to work out that? Anyway, seeeing as the whip is very likely to stay under 5M, I can hopefully make the cash and the level next holiday. That's if I get really into it.
What would I use the whip for? As you may know, I'm not a combat person, but I really would like to give it a go for three reasons: outfits, quests, and standard combat. Reallistically, the whip is one of the better weapons to use in an outfit due to it's excellent curling animation, good size, and weild position which is identical to most shields (that I am likely to get). For quest bosses, I'm fairly sure that a standard combination of whip+dragon dagger should work fairly well, while for standard combat and slayer...well...the whip is just a catch-all melee weapon, isn't it? I'd jsut love to have one.
That, and the fact it can be recoloured. Maybe I should give BA a go, although I'm not much of a "OMG need fighter torso strength [email protected][email protected]!" person. Honour points, experience sound good. Other things to do are get, or boost to, 68 smithing to make full mithril armour and put in my skill hall, and also I would like to do some castlewars for that pink armour. My skill hall suggestion would never happen, so why not just go ahead and get some sets of armour? my skill hall looks a little bare ATM as you might imagine. The only thing I could do is a rune cabinet...and they look ugly.
Here's a handy map of the wilderness, found it on RS wiki. It basically attempts to map (however vaguely) the paths of revenants. Which is useful for those of use that don't go there often and would rather avoid the hotspots, because we can't cope with revenant orks.
I'm also really looking forward to Herblore Habitat. Granted, I won't be able to use it, but I'm thinking of trianing farming in the holidays for the tip it daily money making run, and I would also like to train herblore for quests. Like Fairy Tale, WGS, etc. Free herby xp thus has to be FTW...yeah, I know you can clean herbs for apparently 130k xp/h, but that's if you use mousekeys and you need a decent herb level anyway. Oh, and hunter is becoming better and better, which is something I really like. I've liked hunter ever since I got level 52 on the Bonus XP weekend.
Catch y'all later. A bit of a rambling post, but hopefully it was interesting.
