Item Collections & 200M in All Skills! :thumbs:

Realistically, you would earn most of the money you need, just hunting 200 million experience in all skills, so there would be no point in getting rich. That said, when I played, there was a gargantuan void between 13 million experience and 200 million experience, and no purpose to max a skill. :cute:

You know, I found that having too much money in RuneScape, really did not do much anyway. You reach the point where you are too well-off, and you just end up uninterested about it all. Money is something you are desperate for when you lack it, but an abundance of it just makes you all "Now what..?".

Strange. In the past year I have amassed approximately 50M (on OSRS), spending and saving back and forth at the end of that. When I train skills my general rule is "the outcome must be having more money than before while gaining experience". Although considering I am making a Mage Tank, rune spending is an exception to this rule. The idea of making a very extreme defense and magic pure is the outcome of my spending. I think you are a more experienced player than me, how much did you save when you were still playing?

I'm familiar with you Mr Max GP. The amount of wealth and experience you have managed to accomplish boggles the mind.

You’re also in the top ten to 99 fire making right?

Do you have an opinion on who was first to 99?  Most people say it was cowchicken  but one other person claims the throne.

It might be relevant to point out that I have not played RuneScape actively for over 10 years though, so all my comments are very antiquated. RuneScape 3 was still not a thing when I quit.

My path to economical stability was never through skills though, as I was fairly average in that department. I did, however, earn a significant amount of gold through combat related activities such as PKing as my account was initially a 99/99/70 pure for Barrows duels, Dueling and later soloing bosses. That earned me a few discontinued items, then I hit jackpot when I got an Armadyl hilt off Soloing Kree'arra which netted me another 140 million on top of that which let me outright just buy a partyhat on top of that, and the rest of my RuneScape days basically was left doing random stuff with friends, further PKing/Wars and the odd random thing I did here and there, without ever really spending anything.

According to the current market prices, I do seem to have quite a few billions in the bank at this point, but it is all insignificant. I never had use for the money. The vast majority of the dragon bones I spent for prayer, for instance, was gained by killing green dragons while leveling attack/defence and counter-killing PKers, then selling whatever I managed to kill people for, or the green dragonhides I got. I liked grinding, but I hated to spend money, so it just... built up. :tongue: 

I would not call me an experienced player, but I believe I was Sal's first 126 Combat player, and also the first to get all combat skills (at the time) to 99, so.. I guess I was not entirely useless. :cute:

You should not be. This place has been a place for many exceptional people whom have done remarkable feats, far more so than me. I would be far more impressed by the people that has played for well over 10 years. :tongue:

I'm Rank #5 [I used Willow logs to 200M] I've seen on the RS Players Wiki that Cowchicken was 1st to 99. I have also been Rank 1 Firemaking :happy:

Well I was going to Quote a little bit of one of your other posts but just wanted to Quote this as it's easier. If you don't have any need for GP I have posted that you could have some Item Collections & also go for 200M Skills. I also like to make a Profit while training Skills :thumbs:

Got a day off today & tomorrow :) One of my Managers did ask if I could come in today but I said I already had some plans for today and tomorrow. I just got a haircut a little bit ago & about to play some RS. Doing some Mahogany Tables & then going to get on my F2P 10 hp account to do some Prayer :)

I logged into RS for a bit a week ago and was happy to see that I still had my pet troll called 'santa hat'

but sad to see that there was hardly anyone around and zero interaction between players

Well, I can safely say that going back to work after holidays sapped my energy and time.

In the meantime, I have been playing Hitman 2 (well, the Hitman 1 campaign within Hitman 2), and it is such a fun game. It feels so much like a puzzle game, that it is amazing fun. I love the expansive, open, areas with so many unique and creative ways to.. y'know.. inhume the targets. :ph34r:

You know, I remember reviews of that game applauding it as an outstanding game, but I never gave it a shot. I do not really do any mobile gaming other than Chess nowadays, but I might look into it. All I know is that it is enjoyable to try to set up situations to knock off feats, challenges and weird quirky assassinations.

for mobile games

the room (all 4 of em) --> modern take on point and click escape the room things using the options mobile gaming bring to make it tactile and make sue of the screen position

hitman go (for reasons mentioned above)

Threes, a simple game that shines in simplicity

carmageddon works really well on mobile, steering by tilting the screen is awesome

Magnus Carlsen is the Mozart of Chess. I consider myself the Beethoven of Chess, in the sense that I am completely deaf to all warning signs of commiting an atrocious blunder after a long series of solid play and tactics. :facepalm:

Honestly, it is less about knowing what games to play, but having the time/reason to play them. I used to play a lot of mobile games or do such things on my phone when I had extended periods of travel, but since I get to work in 4 minutes, there really is little time for me to use the phone except for intentionally using it repeatedly.

...and if I want to game, mobile gaming is not my first choice when I have other, and better, options. :tongue:

hah yeah

but seriously, those 'the room' games are exquisite and only work on a tablet or phone because they are made for thouchscreen only

and they are really really really good

I played those ate home on the ipad, not during transport

that is what hearthstone is for

Hearthstone is what I play when multitasking other things, such as watch something. 

Hmmm, I might download one of them and see if I ever touch it during the week. If not, I guess Chess won my interest, but hey.. I could get hooked. It is not like that has not happened before. :biggrin:
