Pink Floyd + money

So, I was woodcutting today when these two guys came up to me and said:

Dude 1: Hey you!!!
Me: Me?
Dude 2: Out there in the cold getting lonely getting old can you feel me?
Dude 1: Standing naked by the phone can you feel me?
Dude 2: Hey you!!!
Me: Scary thing is, I'm listening to that now.
Me: And playing along on bass!
Dude 1: holy cow.
Dude 2: don't go without a fight
Dude 2: crap
Dude 2: wow
Dude 1: nice you got good taste in music
Me: 8^)

We went on to talk about English music and what not. I've so far found three fans of Pink Floyd in RS other than myself. Woot.

Now, WHY I was woodcutting:

If you don't already know, I are mage. I am a huge magic user in RS: I even have multiple robes and runes to do magic with!

I know, I'm missing various runes.

Well, I am trying to get full Ahrim's. Ahrim the Blighted is the oldest of the Barrows brothers. Barrows, If you didn't know, is a mini game. He uses low level magic spells as well as his special effect "Blighted aura", which lowers a player's strength level temporarily. Also, like every one of the Barrows brothers, his armour is tinted red and is ghostly, because, well, they're dead.

Generally, Ahrim is considered the weakest because he wears robes, as all mages do, as opposed to his younger brothers, who wear actual armour, therefore making it easier for players to land blows on him. He is weak against ranged attacks.

He is a mage. If you kill him, you can get some of his equipment. I may be kind of a high level (combat level 89), but I can't kill him. So, I'm buying the set from players who already have gotten it and are selling it. The circled objects are Ahrim's armour pieces I already have: this staff, hood, and robe top. Combined, they cost less than the robe bottom for some strange reason.

I am trying to raise money to afford the 4.7 million gp robe bottoms. I am close... ok, not really. I still need about 3.6 mil and I need to level up my main combat stats (attack, defence, and strength, along with magic) to 70. I am chopping both Magic and Yew trees. I sell Magic logs and make short bows out of Yew logs and sell those.

As I bring this post to a close, I have 855,357gp, 96 magic logs (which equals about 131,520gp), and 98 yew logs (which will turn into bows, which means about 34,790gp). I have a long way to go...

Play on.

BTW I forgot to put my character's picture on the first post, so check back there if you can't figure out what I'm talking about.

Welcome!

This is a spinoff blog from the Guitarist's Blog, my first and main blog which is now used only for musical purposes... and a few life stories. Check back on that blog to see my past Runescape stories.

This is my official blog for Runescape. My name on Runescape is Sir Yoa, hence the name of the blog 8^) I am not starting a new character... not by a long shot. As you can see, I am far from a "noob".

Except for the latest skill, Dungeoneeing, which I feel not a skill, but more a minigame.

You'll typically find me in Runescape wearing brown clothes (from the circus), light blue boots (boots of lightness), a brown cavalier, and a Dark Bow. Like this:


Hope you at least somewhat enjoy this blog!
