To kill some time while thinking it over, I decided to do a bit of flipping at the Grand Exchange, and chop down ivy behind Varrock Castle. Well, that was about 5 levels ago. I'm not doing a lot of flipping, but chopping ivy is easy, non-stressful, and I don't have to give it my total attention. So, for a change of pace, it seems I'll be here for a while getting my Woodcutting 99. At the moment, it's at 95, and very close to the next level. Then there'll just be 97, 98, and 99 to go. I know, it sounds so easy that way. Still, it's only a matter of time and persistence.
Runescape hasn't done much in the way of updates, aside from trying to recover after all the problems caused from the bot-nuking effort. I still applaud them for their effort, but it's been a rough time for a lot of players. The lag/frame rate has been so bad for Monique, she nearly quit playing, and definitely doesn't play as much any more because of it. That's sad. I really enjoy the fact that we play side by side.
Still, this month has some notable positive changes. I especially like the extra bank space (long overdue and much appreciated!) and the toolbelt. Not totally thrilled with the money pouch. I'd like the money pouch better if it had an 'All' option. I hate having to type specific amounts of gold any time I want to just drop it all in the bank, or back in the pouch. There's also a few glitches, like when I try to buy my daily battlestaves, I'm told I have no money. Even though it's all in the pouch. It has to be withdrawn from the pouch, put in my inventory, purchase the staves, then put back in the pouch. Should be an easy fix, and I expect it to be corrected soon. Hopefully, they'll address the 'All' option at the same time. Then I'd be totally happy with the money pouch.
So after a slight hitch, my toolbelt is finally completely full. Life is good.
Still haven't visited the Dominion tower, or the Polypore dungeons. They both sound fun, but I tend to focus intently and right now, it's all about the woodcutting. Maybe if I take a short break I can stop in for a visit. They both sound pretty fun.
In the meantime, if you happen to be running behind Varrock Castle and see someone chopping ivy with their Baby Jad, it's probably me. Wave hi!
