Runescape 99 Mining: Power-ups FTW!
And let's not forget the skilling benefits of Evolution of Combat. Most of the time, I've banked the ore. But towards the end, I've been power-dropping it. There's enough saved up in the bank to pay for my daily challenges when it's concentrated gold ore. With the EOC, it's become amazingly easy to drop ore while continuing to mine.
Saturday I had other things to do, but still spent an amazing amount of time Mining. By 11pm, just couldn't stay awake any more. Even though it only needed 167k, I had to go to sleep.
Woke up, probably 4:30 am, couldn't go back to sleep. (Happens a lot.) So back to the mines. Early early Saturday morning, it happened; 99 Mining. That's a seriously good feeling, to finish a long standing goal.
That in itself is kind of odd, since the Dungeoneering 99 Skill Cape is unfinished. It won't really count as 'done' until 120. But I still like it best. Followed by the Prayer skillcape. Both have great emotes.
I haven't X'd the skill off the list, shouldn't it still be assigning me Dungeoneering Challenges?
That part aside, my next goal is Crafting. Doing dragonhide is very expensive, so I'm only buying enough to do 30 minutes worth daily. I can use the Festive Aura for that 30 minutes, plus do a crafting assignment during that time. Should give me a huge savings in the cost of supplies.
For the other parts of the day, it's slow, but I'm making Decorative Mining Urns. They make about 11k per inventory, so at least it's profitable. And when I want a break, I go fight monsters. :^)
