There is so much info and I'd like to RuneScape gold make it the best way overall to train my mage to 99. I know that I could hop into P2P, lose myself and do this and that randomly in the same way I did a few years ago. This is not what I want.
My simple reason is that it's something that I don't want to experience. I hate the feeling of losing items I've spent hours or days grinding for. When I'm playing Elite Clues, I've been attempting for the Chaos Elemental pet dropped and I'm currently at risk of losing 6k worth items. I don't permit anyone to PK me.
Another problem is my account isn't designed to play PvP. I'm 136 combat with three combat-based 99's. The three areas of my strengths are Magic, Defense, Constitution. My skill stats are all over 70, with the majority of them in the 80's, however with nothing 90+ besides 99 Fletching (which doesn't help in PvP).
Within a few steps to enter the Wilderness I'm able to attack anyone with full 99 combat stats, who can potentially be a maxed player running an inventory of rocktails and overloads, a different class of armor/weapon... and of course another yak full of rockstails. While I may be able to play as a mage if the opponent has weapons or potions I'm a tad outclassed.
It's not a problem however, I'm not averse to it. If I were to work to make my account competitive, I would however, I don't think of the financial gain that buy runescape 3 gold comes from it. If I'm lucky, some drygores would be my reward when I PK someone.
