A Poll On Low Level Summoning Familiars

May 17, 2008 By: crowlion Category: bestrunetips site update, Runescape skills, Runescape Tips 1 Comment →

We decided to create a poll for this site and the 1st poll asks what low level familiar do you like best. Feel free to comment about the familiars here, particularly if the familiar you prefer best in not on the list. We have asked for low level familiars (in this case level 56 summoning or below), because many have not had a chance to use higher level ones.

Personally I have found the magpie useful. I have got up to 11 pieces of jewelry or uncut gems in one summons from the magpie, including rings of life, rings of forging, rings of recoil, rings of dueling, diamond rings, ruby rings, emerald rings and sapphire rings. Most of the uncut gems tend to be rubies and diamonds. Magpies can increase your thieving by 2 levels too.

When fishing, the ibis is handy. I have used it twice. The 1st time, when I was fishing for monkfish, it gave me 9 sworides. The next time I fished for sharks I got 15 swordies and 3 tuna.  The Ibis gives you an invisible fishing bonus too, which always helps.

I have not yet used the spirit terror bird, even though I have the pouches, but I know that it can be very handy. It would be great for when you want to collect snape grass, as you can use carry 12 snape grass with it as well as using the energy and agility increase. At the start of the video below, the terror bird is seen in action.

So, it is a toss up between these 3 for me, but I think that I would marginally chose the magpie because I can use it while doing anything (ibis needs you to be fishing for it to work). Also the rewards are worth more.

My Journey To 99 Attack

May 09, 2008 By: BRT Cj Category: Runescape skills 7 Comments →

I recently achieved 99 attack, I started out wanting to do 99 attack through doing slayer went from about 90 to 97 attack then started to do a combination of pest control (with vmc as crowlion mentioned in his 99 strength post), slayer and killing the monkey guards on ape atoll with dharoks to get the rest of the experience for 99.

I got the last 200 experience I needed for 99 attack with a book of knowledge. Below is a picture of me getting 99 attack with my friends Aj 692, and Bacon749.



Below is a picture of the attack cape emote.
