In general, the Mining OSRS gold course is similar to an Ironman in the normal ways of leveling up, however the major difference is that you have to spend about an hour or so now before you can begin mining resources like gems for Slayer bracelets and Volcanic Ash for Ultracompost.
It means that you shouldn't reach 99 using conventional methods, but take a few minutes to farm products that you'll require later on. As for pickaxes, you will not have any difficulty finding new ones since the majority are available at the NPC stores, with the exception of the Dragon one, which is the rare drop from some of the bosses. If you opt for mining gold ore, it will provide precious resources for smithing instruction.
Another skill that is difficult to farm for Ironman. Prayer requires a large amount of bones or experience income sources for efficient training. Most of the players buy them directly through Grand Exchange but not an Ironman.
And, of course, good luck! It depends exactly how you'd like to proceed Personally, I'm not keen on runecrafting , and don't have the money, therefore I'm constantly begging in search of the effigies I can use for runecrafting. As well as assisting people with their RC characters, (91 onwards, I'd advise this because it's a no-cost 30k rc XP a day)
I'd use the penguins as for a increase every week, since it all adds up in a high XP count in as long as it will take for 99 Runecrafting. If free trade is restored, we'll likely see the increasing of Air Law, Air and Double nature being revived as well, which could be the best option to just sit around your altar all day and allow people to bring the essence of you.
I am thinking of camping with cheap OSRS gold avies soon.my statistics are 73 range/80 def/60 prayers. Should I go with the tank technique? If so, what type of clothing should I wear?
