Diary Cape for Mokkou

Post by Mokkou on Mon Nov 14, 2016 11:54 am

Hey guys,

so I've been wanting to make this thread for quite a while now. A few days ago I got the necessary impetus to finally do it:



So as the title suggests, my goal is the diary cape. Basically this means that pretty much all of my game time will focus on knocking out the skill requirements for the elite diaries. Upon reaching a required level I will no longer focus on that particular skill (except runecrafting, as that's my main money-making skill). Originally I planned to not use skill boosts, but this proved to be so tedious that I decided to waive that self-imposed requirement  Rolling Eyes As this is a rather long-term goal, I will be posting my gains along the way in this thread. Things I'm looking forward to: the slayer grind, maybe the agility grind (wth is wrong with me). Things I'm not looking forward to: fishing grind (blerggh), burning my bank to get the buyables.

Current status (5 Mar 2017):

Ardougne: Elite
Desert: Elite
Falador: Elite
Fremennik: Elite
Kandarin: Hard
Karamja: Elite
Lumby & Draynor: Elite
Morytania: Hard
Varrock: Elite
Western Provinces: None
Wilderness: None

By the way, any help with gwd bosses/wildy bosses/dks is greatly appreciated, since I have never done those. Feel free to post below if you want to help, and I'll give you a shout in-game Wink Any advice pertaining to the mentioned bosses is also more than welcome. Much obliged. -Mokkou

Right, it's been almost a month now and time to update the thread. After the Falador elite I went for Lumby & Draynor elite.

So I've had 86 smithing banked for quite some time now, around 35k gold ores.
Spoiler:
The thing is, I'm not sure if this is the end of the grind. From 86 I could boost to all the elite smithing requirements, but there are several (Varrock, Ardy, Kandarin, Wildy) and that could prove tiresome. So I might get 89 at some point. After smithing, blackjacking a couple of thieving levels wasn't too bad.
Spoiler:
So here we go, another elite knocked off the list Smile

I was wondering which one to do next and I realized that the only thing I needed to do the Karamja elite was the herblore level. So I coughed up some money and got 78-83 herb.
Spoiler:
And here we have it Smile

Also got a nice level off the exp lamp. Now I have all the required levels for Fremmy elite.
Spoiler:

In other news, the mining grind is nearing its end (at least for now).
Spoiler:
My next big goal is the Ardougne elite. The agility grind is coming along slowly but surely. The requirement is at least 85, but I might get 86 for the KQ shortcut, since I need the get KQ head eventually anyway. (19 Dec 2016 edit: the KQ lair agility shortcut requires the completion of elite desert diary in addition to 86 agility)
Spoiler:
Wish I could say the same about fishing though Sad I tried 3 ticking for a bit, but it really might not be my thing.
Spoiler:

All in all, the stats are starting to look pretty decent. If I do say so myself.


Until next time!

Hai guise, I'm back with some progress.

I literally cannibalized my bank to buy 86 herblore. Was worth it though. Also, it's funny that in my last post I pondered the possible difficulty of getting smithing boosts. Twice I have needed a +5 boost and twice I've gotten one. In the first try Wink So now I had all the requirements to complete Varrock elites. Ta-dah!


As you can see from the picture, I was quite close to a rc lvl. I decided to do some nats to get back some of that money lost on herblore and subsequently got this. These are really getting rarer and rarer.


Oh and I managed to kill Kalphite Queen for the first time in my RS career. She was surprisingly easy to beat, so I did a few kills more. No head though Sad Anyway, I got this:


I will be travelling to Hong Kong for xmas and new year, so I won't be online for quite a while.

In the meantime, happy holidays to all in this wonderful clan and have a good year 2017! <3

Well well, another month has gone by and time to update the thread Smile

I started this year by finishing the agility grind. So without further ado:


After getting this big goal done, I decided to "celebrate" by completing the Architectural Alliance miniquest (who am I kidding, that was one of the worst things I have ever done in this game). Ardy cape and white graceful looking absolutely fabulous though:


I am currently working my thieving, fishing and slayer. I got the skill requirements for Kandarin elite, but cba do barbarian assault and Fremennik elite, but cba to do bosses, so y next big goal is the Desert elite for desert ammy 4, which is gonna help a lot with slayer.

Stay tuned!

I've been lazy to bump the thread, but here goes. IRL obligations have taken a lot of my time but gains have still been made. Starting off with this huge one:


The real challenges with desert diaries are, in my opinion, thieving and KQ. I did 45-91 thieving by blackjacking, which I highly recommend to anyone who's interested in quick thieving xp. Once you get the hang of it it's actually pretty chill. Got my KQ head at 209 kc and I'm never going back there again. KQ's drops aren't anything special and she hits like a train. That is, a train filled with small, equally lethal trains. I feel sorry for those folks who have killed her like 5000 times for the pet (which is cool, I admit).

Previous screenshot is from about a week ago. This one I got three days ago:


The skill requirements for fremmy diaries aren't anything special, but I've been putting it off because I don't really do pvm. Well, I got a dagannoth task so I decided to try out the new task-only DK lair. The kills were very messy, but in the end all three kings went down pretty easily. Then I got a few ecumenical keys and soloed the gwd bosses. I don't think I'll be heading back there any time soon. Nonetheless feels pretty good. 7 elites down and only 4 to go  Very Happy

In other news, my 10th lvl 90 skill:


Also, I used the elites I got from KQ to do master clues. One of the turned out to be the most valuable clue reward in my rs history:

edit: it seems that Konduit is much worse at screenshotting than OSB
Next up is the Morytania elite, because why not. Might as well get that upgraded bonecrusher for use during slayer (yay, efficiencyscape).

Very nice progress Mokkou!

Well of course I did this over a long period of time, so I don't remember how long the whole journey took. However, 45-91 is around 5,8 mil xp, and based on the rates I was getting, one should be able to get there in 30 hours or so.
