I also got 65 Summoning from penguins, and 54 Runecrafting from Tears of Guthix yesterday. I plan on getting 68 Summoning on Penguins sometime soon and then start using penguins on Runecrafting. :)
I'm finally going to start questing, even though I despise it. Going to try doing Horror from the deep and Animal magnetism, get everything I need for Ranged, and then go pulverise some Yaks till 75 Range. :P

Another update was the forum avatars. I think it's a very interesting start to updating the forums. They stated in a recent Q&A there was a big plan for the forums, but it won't come out too soon. This updates lets players show a bit more about their selves and how creative they can come to get. :P
I got 98 fishing a few minutes ago and I'm now one level away from this big goal. I have about 35m worth of Rocktails in my bank that I've gotten since they came out. I've been 1st on the daily exp gains on the Runescape tracker a few times and I've been around the 10-15 ranks in the weekly and monthly gains. :)
I also got very close to 65 Summoning after doing this week's penguins, I'm deciding whether to finally stop using lamps/penguins on Summoning and give it to Runecrafting, only skill under 60, currently at 53. Funny thing is it's the only skill that I haven't trained being a member. :P

I'm very close to gettting 96 Fishing, about 100k left. I'll probably get it tonight or tomorrow morning. I've also been on the Runescape tracker tables for Top 42 in Fishing a few times the past month :P. I got 64 Summoning after doing my weekly penguins on Tuesday. 1759 total now, 1760 very soon :). I'd also like to thank Olav Holland for being amazing and a very easy and fun person to talk to the past week or so. :D

They also made an update to the Friend list/Clan chat structure. You can move a line across the box for it to show more of the full name or of the world. This is pointless for now in my opinion, it might become useful once the new display name update comes out.
I'm slowly working towards 99 Fishing, I have 93 and I'm planning to get 94 tomorrow night. I won't be playing what I played during the summer anymore for obvious reason, so 99 Fishing might take a month or so more :P. I've stopped doing stars/trees daily because I fish in World 2 and hopping to world 78 to do stars/trees is to tedious for me right now. Well, thank you for your time, until next time, hopefully soon :P.

The new fish are Cavefish and Rocktail. The cavefish heals 23 hp + a 10% Hitpoints level boost. The Cavefish heal 20 hp and they give an extra boost in a random combat skill by adding +2. Fishing Rocktail gives 380 Fishing exp and I've done Exp rate tests to see how much Exp they can give per hour. My Average for Rocktail has been 44.4k Exp/hour. Fishing Cavefish gives 300 exp and my Exp rate tests have resulted in about 33.8k Exp/hour. Both these fish are bound to rise alot, especially Rocktail. You need 90 Fishing to fish Rock tail and 85 Fishing to fish Cavefish. I expect Rocktail to rise to about 5k on the ge and then crash down to 2.5-4k. I expect Cavefish to rise to 2-3k and crash to 1.5k.
I don't have much information on the new mining locations because I don't quite have 80 Mining just yet :P. I've heard they give right about 50k Exp/hour and are very profitable. These are supposively the new way to effectively get 99 Mining.
The monsters drop an assorment of noted Gems and Ores. They also drop a few runes and when they die you can mine them to get Living Minerals. These are used as bait when Fishing Rocktails. There have been Rumours that the level 140s drop Dragon Pickaxes but I have yet to see confirmation. There are also Level 200 Patriarchs that are randomly summoned to the cave after triggering a set amount of time in the cave or amount of monsters killed. There has been no confirmation on what triggers these but people that fought them do say they thing that they all dorp the same thing all the time.
The objective tab is nice but only having one objective at a item is quite bad in my opinion and when I'm trading various skills at a time it isn't practical. I'd also love to see objectives past 99, 20m Exp, 100m Exp, or maybe even 200m Exp for the daring ones :O. The caret is nice but it can certainly confuse alot. It blinks constantly and sometimes makes you think its something else. I suppose we're just going to have to get used to it.
I also got past 14m Woodcutting exp earlier today and I got 92 fishing last night :). I'm currently fishing Rocktail's until my bait runs out, and then if I don't buy any bait through the G.E I'll probably go back to Monkfish until the prices die down. I got 63 Summoning from penguins as well :). Yesterday a friend called me over to the Blue Moon Inn where an event was taking place. This was the first time I had ever seen a Jagex Mod in all my time playing Runescape, actually, there were 5 Player Support Jagex mods there, not just one :P. They were Mod Williams, Mod Bert, Mod Leebo, Mod Rollins, and Mod Rory. They were there to anwser everyones questions and I'm glad seeing Jagex take this type of inniative ingame.

I joined a great clan chat in Febuary 2009. I owe everything I am today to that clan. I had about 10 or so friends before I joined, and that number multiplied by around 10. The clan's owner was "Cliffan", he is a great person and he helps people with right about everything and anything. I owe alot to him, thank you Cliffy. I met some other unforgettable friends there my first few months, Vossler ff12, Rulea, Ik ben puur4, O B I X O, and many many more. During this time I got to 94 Woodcutting and 93 Firemaking on F2p. I became member for the first time in late may, and I postponed my 99 Woodcutting/Firemaking goal. I already transformed into a really informed player and I knew right about everything in the game before becoming a member, more then people that were already members. With all this knowledge applied, I gained 588 Total levels my first month of member. From 1032 to 1620. It was the biggest feat I had ever accomplished. During this time a friend "Alder dryad" started playing alot and we became alot closer, and "Cliffan's" clan chat was much more populated because of the summer vacations, hence alot more enjoyable. These were my best Runescape times to date.
After this first month, with somewhat respectable skills, I renewed my goal for 99 Firemaking/Woodcutting. I got it cutting and burning Teak trees with my recently aquired Inferno Adze. I finally got 99 Woodcutting and Firemaking on the same day. After I completed this goal I did a few others, got my total level a bit higher. Then I went for 99 Fletching and I got it in a few weeks. I met alot of great people in World 148 Castle wars while Fletching. I had loads of fun supporting everyone Runecrafting there, especially Rulea :). Started on 99 Cooking and took a two week vacation in between. I got 99 Cooking sometime in august 2009. Those were 4 99's I had gotten through the summer. I have the exact dates of my 99's on my Youtube channel's description if you want to check that out.
After 99 Cooking I tried going for 99 Hunter and getting some money along the way. I went from level 60 to level 83 in 4 days. No lifing. I quit at 83 because I thought it was a decent enough level, and because I was frustrated that I wasn't getting good exp rates/hour for some reason. After quitting this I started on 99 Fishing in late August. I'm working on that goal right now. I'm planning on using all the money I get from 99 Fishing to get higher levels in all skills you need money to train efficiently. 60-77 Crafting, 76-82 Magic, 60-70+ Smithing, 60-70 Prayer, 60-84 Construction, 65-75 Herblore, and 65-75 Farming. I've joined another clan chat during late August. I really like it and all it's members, and it helps alot. Thanks to them I've started to do quite alot of Shooting Stars everyday, and Evil tree's aswell. They all seem to be great people and I hope i'll stay with them for quite some time. I'd also like to thank "Olav Holland", she's my partner in crime while doing Evil trees and a great person ingame and out :).That's all of my Runescape history until now, I'll talk about more once I get alot more done :).
Today started off good as well, I did an Evil Magic tree early in the morning and didn't play much more after. In the afternoon I continued fishing and got 91 Fishing :). Then I went to my first star of the day and got the tag at Brimhaven Dungeon. I got three tags in a row that day, that one being the first. After that first tag I got 74 Mining :), and today concludes a week long "1 or more star tag(s) a day" streak :). I then did my penguins on World 60 and got 628 exp away from 63 Summoning, still waiting for a lamp so I can level :P. I continued fishing the rest of the day and did another Evil magic tree. After doing a star at Nardah, me and my friend teleported through fairy rings to go to Piscatoris. In the process we teleported two Jackals as well, but they dissapeard before I could take a Screenshot :(.

After a few more levels I decided to train on Al Kharid warriors, they would auto-attack and I thought them to be a better challenge than goblins or cows. After some time I was already in full Mithril, with a few Addy pieces. I remember starting a few weeks or months before the 2005 Easter event, where I got my first Holiday item, the Easter ring. I remember the way I bought my first Rune set, I mined coal for weeks at the Dwarven Mine. I would get lost so many times doing quests, I managed to finish all f2p quests though.
The way I made money after mining coal was going to the Karamja dock and picking up any fish people dropped, and then sell them to the general store. I made about 5k/hour and thought it was the fastest way of making money in the game. I would train on lessers with the lobsters I would fish and cook at the Karamja port, I got to level 50 combat on that account. Yes, I was a noob. I stopped playing this account in 2006, I don't remember exactly when though. I quit the game till 2007, and then started a new account. What dangers awaited me there.....? This will continue in tomorrow's post :P.
This morning started off excellently. 20 minutes after I logged on I was face to face with an Elder tree, I cut it with a few friends and got my 30 minutes. An hour ot two later another Evil tree sprouted on the lands of Runescape, a Magic tree. Got my 26 minutes and chopped away, I reached 13.850.000 Woodcutting exp. As I was wasting the minutes from the Evil Magic tree, a friend told me a star was about to land in Asgarnia. I had about 15 Magical banking minutes left and I hurriedly teleported to go cover Rimmington mine. I had just gotten there and BOOM! a star lands smack in the middle. I quickly tag it for 5.8k exp and continue my woodcutting on the willows near Rimmington, Perfection! Didn't do much stars yesterday, but I got very close to 74 Mining, 4,447 exp away from it. I'm close to 91 Fishing too, i'll have a screenshot ready for tonight's blog.
Something really funny that happened today, a friend told me there were 5 penguins trapped in the Yanille wall in world 145. I then told all my friends and they probably told all theirs. The place ended up quite full and I got all 5 penguins. Here's a screenshot:
I am sorry for not posting this blog yesterday. My computer broke down and I didn't feel like turning it on again and finishing the blog at 2 am. This is yesterday night's post and I'll have today's post ready for this night. Sorry for breaking the daily schedule. :)

The second D&D I want to talk about are Shooting Stars. They can land on several different spots around several different Runescape regions. If you have a telescope at your house, it will tell you approximately when the star in your world will land and in what region. You can get alot of Mining exp from thsese and great rewards as well. You have to mine all levels of the star till you get to the middle where there will be a little alien. Once you mine you get Stardust, which you can trade for rewards once you reach the alien. The max amount of Stardust you can have at any given time is 200, which rewards you with 50,000 gp, 43 Astrals, 152 Cosmics, and 20 noted Gold ore.
The third D&D I'm going to talk about are Evil Tree's. These reward you in Woodcutting, Firemaking, and farming. To get to an evil tree you can talk to all the Spirit Tree's scattered around Runescape. They will tell you about how much time is left, and give you a hint when there are under 5 minutes left. When the evil tree sprouts the Spirit Tree will teleport you straight to it. After finishing it it'll give you magical banking minutes, any logs you cut in that time period go directly to your bank. This is a great way of getting Woodcutting Exp on any tree.
That's all I have to say about D&D's, I do hope you all try them out as they are truly amazing ways of getting Exp/Rewards every day or week.
I'm going to try and make this as easy and fun as possible, and I'll try to update this as frequently as possible, though I might not have time some day or another due to being busy or what not. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I know I will :).
