Its been a while since I’ve given you an in-game update of where I am and where I’m going, so I thought I’d quickly catch you up.
Not a whole lot of changes in terms of levels or basically anything else. I’ve not accomplished a whole lot since June, but this fall I have some pretty big plans.
Current skill list as of July 30th:
I know, I know, not that impressive. I’m a rookie- what can I say? 🙂
Enough of the past, now for the future. I’m a member again! And plan to be one for most of this fall and winter.
Its been a long time since I’ve stepped up my game and ‘reached the next level’ and I plan to do so once again this fall. My goal is to reach PvMer status by November 1st. At first it may seem like a simple task but at a second glance its more daunting than it may seem. I’ll be honest, I’ve not been a member for long, my skills show it and my quest points show it.
There are a fair amount of unlockables I need to have before I can officially start bossing. Extended prayer book, 2 more spellbooks, and a handful of various enhancements to speed up the bossing process, teleports etc. Most of the quests that give these rewards require alot of requirement quests. Most of them are short novice quests but they still take time. I plan to accomplish the below quests by the end of August.
The Fremennik Trials
The Tourist Trap
Temple of Ikov
The Lost Tribe
Garden of Tranquility
What Lies Below
The Knight’s Sword
Defender of Varrock
The Curse of Arrav
Shades of Mort’ton
The Tale of the Muspah
Icthlarin’s Little Helper
Missing My Mummy
The Temple at Senntisten
Between a Rock
The Giant Dwarf
Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf
Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf
My Arm’s Big Adventure
King of the Dwarves
I’ve already done a good handful of the quests but still have a while to go. Bolded quests are those that are more advanced and unlock the biggest content that I want. This is actually probably the most time consuming part of my road to PvM. Alot of quests take longer than you think. But I’m enjoying it, I would call myself a part-time quester, I certainty don’t hate it. I like all the lore and the backstories that are associated with quests. Most quests in Runescape are very well done, from gameplay to plot. I’m finding a very comedic side to Runescape through these quests that you don’t find anywhere else on Runescape. Some of the conversations in quests are really funny.
After I complete the long list of quests I need to move on to skilling. As of now I would need alot of backup if I wanted to boss which means less rewards in the long run. Its about time for my combat stats to finally make the next leap as it has been a while. I’m shooting for 80-85 for starters in all my combat stats so I can use the unlocked ability’s in The World Wakes. Although I’m sure after I start bossing I’ll find that the 80-85 range still isn’t quite strong enough.
For starters I’m shooting to melee solo General Graardor. Once I get more experienced, I’ll move onto harder more profitable bosses.
Its an exciting time, I’ve wanted to boss for a long time but just now have the opportunity to do so. I’ll keep the blog updated as I go along.
