Today I had an epiphany and decided to start my own skill log. :P Never thought I'd do this. But this log is different. It's not going to be chronicling the progress on my rs3 character. It's not going to be chronicling my rs2 account (which is somewhere lost in elf lands) either. It's going to be chronicling the (minimal) progress on my Runescape Classic Account. I'll log in everyday but between real life and updating stuff on the site I won't be able to get a million xp a day. However I'll get lots of levels since my levels aren't great. I'll also get on making this more organized within a couple of days.

FAQ

 

Q: How many people still play?

A: It's hard to tell with the bots, but I'd say <100 active legit players and <1000 semi active + active legit players

 

Q: How can I play?

A: The play page is here. Also you must have played

• Aug 3rd 2005 - Feb 3rd 2006

• November 2009 re-open. (11th - 25th)

• June 2010 re-open. (1st - 24th)

• September 2011 re-open. (14th - 30th)

*There was a reopen in 2016 and I'm not sure they ever closed it. May want to check*

Also must be a member obviously.

RUNESCAPE CLASSIC CLOSES AUGUST 6TH 2018. MUST PLAY BEFORE THEN.

Q: What is the top gear?

A: Dragon med helm, Dragon sq shield, Dragon Axe/Sword, Rune platebody, Rune platelegs, Amulet of Glory, Legend's Cape. Gloves/boots cannot be worn with platebody/legs. Also, Klank's Gaunlets + rune chain is probably the best DPS (gloves can be worn with chainmail).

 

Q: Max hit on RSC?

A: 36 I believe

How much is an r2h? Dbaxe is the best weapon in the game right? Good luck finding a partner for hero's :P

 

At least you can use the veterans' servers, basically a private server.

I'm sure I can find somebody to do Heroes because you can do the Heroes thing for the quest twice. I.e. You can get somebody who has already finished the quest to help. I think I can probably find somebody on Sals to help with Shield of Arrav.

 

Not sure how much a r2h is. Dbaxe is the best weapon tied with the god staves. Not getting ahead of myself here though. I still have to play Runescape 3.

I've tried to play classic. I just can't do it. Probably because I started long after classic.

Good luck on your goals!

Do you still have access by chance? May need a arrav partner.

If you ever want to get back in the game and need some minor help you can always come to me.

well, this is a new one. It's nice to have someone active in this forum even if they are playing a different game.

 

Personally I can't stand classic because of the harsh colours and slow movement speed.

I could help you with Arrav, I think I will get members in late March. You only need it for Hero's, which you probably won't be doing for awhile.

Got 41 Mining:

Also bought my Rune Pickaxe. Tried to buy for cheaper in Draynor but nobody was selling.

So much better than that Adamant Pickaxe I had.

Exciting. RSC as good as I remember it, or is that all just nostalgia filter?

It's pretty fun for me anyway; obviously it would be more fun if more people played. There are usually people at Draynor though if you ever want social interaction.

 

I'm more excited to log onto classic than the other versions, but of course most people play the other versions and not classic so that's still what I spend most of my time on. At least for now.

I mine coal actually. I mine probably 95% of rocks successfully but rarely on the first hit. I just sold 100 coal certs today for 100k. Also got somebody to add me. Yay.

 

Today:

 

Got 44 Mining:

After I sold my coal I went to Tav/Barb to buy some new gear:

Then I got some defence levels with the new gear. Now I have 24 Defence.

Also decided to do Demon Slayer. Probably will do some more questing.

The fight took longer than expected since I forgot the incantation (it's given to you in the beginning of the quest, which I started yearrrs ago). I killed Delrith four times and he kept coming back but prevailed in the end.

At the stellar advice of another player, I started training at dark wizards. Got my defence up to 30. Now all melee stats are 30.

Bought my new gear:

All I need is the girl!

 

Also I made a 10 minute banner! Vote on how good it is (I made a poll). :pirate:

How hard was that? It must be a lot harder than it is in modern Runescape because every time you run into an ice warrior you must stop and take three hits. I know that you aren't low-leveled for the quest but it still would be annoying at the least.

It was pretty hard, but not for that reason. That was only annoying and I mostly had to deal with hobgoblins. Baking the pie was tough - burned it twice and had to get ingredients every time. There is also a part of the quest where you need a player to distract somebody so you can steal a portrait. In rs2 you just take it when he has his back turned. I was luckily able to find someone in Falador. Also disappointed at xp I got. Was expecting to go to 30 smithing, only went 4-14. Xp gains in classic are lower than rs2 not only in skilling but quests.

 

Here is 10 fishing. This is actually a big deal since now I can do the Fishing Contest quest. White Wolf Mountain is a pain to traverse. Fishing is very hard at low levels; I was fishing shrimp (10xp) and had a 10% or so success rate, so it's one xp a click...

How close are you to doing Dragon Slayer. It's harder on classic, and Elvarg is a higher level, but your rune 2h sword will do wonders I'm sure. :aware:

Yeah...

 

I have not forgotten about this, but nobody has been posting here :cry: Here is some progress.

 

I got 40 Attack

I can now wield my rune 2h.

I also did some quests like Ernest the Chicken but did not take picture since I was lazy.

 

I also finished Imp Catcher. Thanks to Leta for giving me the black bead which the silly imps would never give me.

This got me up to 34 magic. So now I have all of the requirements for Dragon Slayer (you can not buy the map piece from the goblin in classic). I'll probably finish it after bxp weekend. I also got an amulet of accuracy, which is semi-rare in classic.
