|Night Spider - Had to stop and take a picture!|
Okay, not really. But not so far off the mark. Like I mentioned last time, I've finally settled down to do some Dungeoneering. Trying to get a Chaotic weapon. Probably rapier, but haven't decided for sure. Not like I don't have PLENTY of time before I have to decide.
At 60,000 tokens currently, I need to go as fast as I can to finish before retirement age. I've read what little is out there. Most everything is geared to groups, which I don't do. Many reasons. Mainly, I like playing on my own, without trying to match up to someone else's schedule and needs. There's very little info about dungeoneering solo. Nearly everybody agrees that solo is much slower experience than team Dungeoneering, so maybe I'll reconsider the solo thing. But for the moment, I'm not even soloing that well.
To begin with, my Dungeoneering is currently 85. It got that way through Tears of Guthix for a long time. When I began actually playing it, every random, every penguin point, every book of knowledge, all went to Dungeoneering.
Through it all, actual time in the Dungeons has been either solo, or teaming with Monique. That's how my level got to 85, without me actually being very good at DG.
So now, I'm trying to get the hang of solo rushing. If I don't lose concentration, I get through a Small, C6 Dungeon in the 20's to 40's with about 20 minutes. But it's so darn fun to play... I love the combat, and am a very thoughtful, plan-ahead type of player. So I'm constantly stopping to fight something because it's there. Don't need to kill it, can run right on by, or just leave it alone in an end room. But nope, I've got to wade right in and kill them all. I'm slowly breaking that habit, but it's very hard to stop attacking everything.
I'm also pack-ratting everything to the main room. I just can't stop myself. I'll pick up food, okay, that's cool. Oh, and maybe some firewood, in case I have to cook some food. And let's grab that bag of runes, because I might need more than I already made. Herbs, seeds, junk that can be sold, it's all fodder for my stockpiles on the big rug.
All that is kind of the long way around to my starting point. I'm way too easy to distract. Trying my best to learn how to speed through a dungeon, but just having too much fun to do it right. While I really want that Chaotic, there's just something ... right... about having fun. It's a game, if it was all just work and drudgery, there'd be no reason to play.
