Meet muchoskill, the Runescape avatar who only has one life

Cursed by the gods

Nobody knows for sure which god is responsible, but people all over the world are starting to speculate that it might have been an agreement of all the gods with the exception of Guthix (being dead and all…) , to curse certain newborn avatars in Gielinor so that they only have a single life. When you die- that’s it. Good night, sayonara etc.

 

Meet muchoskill

MuchoSkill from Runescape Hardcore Ironman Challenge
Muchoskill is just one of many who have been cursed in such a way. There are so many poor souls currently inhabiting the world that the supreme ruler Jagex has been forced to create separate highscore tables for these people. Every day muchoskill wakes up and the first thought that runs through his thick Rastafarian head is “will I survive this day or will I die and be forgotten?

 

Every day he sees more and more strangers who share his fate get killed in the most horrific ways one can imagine and if you think THAT should be enough to break the average man, an eerie voice on top of it all will always break the silence and announce the death of another one.

 

The only thing left for muchoskill is to continue his progress towards enlightenment by gaining experience in the many skills and activities this world has to offer in the hopes to perhaps one day see the mind of God using all of his knowledge and to rival the Gods themselves by claiming immortality and maybe, just maybe even becoming a God himself.

Why you shouldn’t underestimate the Farming skill in Runescape

Farming skill in Runescape

The skill “Farming” requires a pay-to-play account and it’s an amazing skill that lets you plant herbs, bushes, trees and flowers that can be harvested and most of the harvested items can then later be used in various other skills. For example the Herblore skill uses herbs that are grown with the Farming skill and these are used to make potions that boost your stats or give you other advantages in the game.

 

Don’t underestimate the Farming skill

You hear it a lot from other players that the skill is tedious and time consuming and really not worth the trouble. The experience seems to come slowly and you can only plant a tree once every day per patch, because it takes 12 hours or so to fully grow and be ready for harvest (that’s when the experience will come).

Placing supercompost on a herb patch

The small stuff like applying supercompost or planting a seed give very small amounts of experience indeed, but the main XP will come AFTER you have planted and grown a plant to its full size. It’s especially true with trees like the Magic Tree that gives a whooping 13,768+ XP after you check it for health (that’s without any experience boosts).

If you are just starting out, I advise you to complete the quest Fairy Tale I – Growing Pains. After finishing this quest your farming level is raised instantly from 1 to 17. For more farming experience simply keep growing the best that you can afford. Remember, trees give the most experience.

 

Serious farming and money making

After you get 85 farming things will really start to get profitable because you can now grow Torstol, the herb that is used to make Zamorak Brews- a wildly sought after potion that raises Attack and Strength levels temporarily.

You can get Torstol seed from the Grand Exchange for a measly 17,000+ coins. The yield is around 8-10 herbs per seed and they sell for over 5,000+ coins each, making your pure profit anywhere between 23,000 to 33,000 per seed!

Below are the results of my latest herb run:

4 seeds = 70,844 coins

37 herbs = 200,799 coins

Making the total profit from this run 129,955 coins.

Remember, you can do this 4 times per hour! (because seeds take around 15 minutes or so to grow).

That’s 519,820+ coins per hour!

This is just the result of an average herb run, I’ve picked 51 herbs too which add up to 848,824+ coins per hour!

As of October 2014 Farming is probably the most profitable skill right now.
