Armadyl bracers


Initially I thought these'd be useless, because barrows gloves give one extra ranged accuracy... but maybe the GWD protection and +1 prayer bonus is worth more than that? :P

Also caught a random dragon impling at the end of the clue... got some dragon arrowtips, not the best but not the worst either. Got the lower end of the amount though, so...

Armadyl page 4
Book of law


Yesss!!! The stars aligned and I actually got the page I wanted! This is going to be my best-in-slot ranged offhand for quite a while, and the best part is that it gives a huge prayer bonus as well, and can be freely taken to the wilderness without fear of losing it!!! :D

Woodcutting cape (t)


Primary methods used to get 99 woodcutting:

Lumbridge trees (early game)
Wintertodt (mid game)
Sulliusceps (mid and late game)

The primary reason why I went for maxing woodcutting this early was to get more fossils, and consequently prayer exp: 99 woodcutting yielded roughly 2m prayer exp worth of fossils, which is huge at this point of the game, and having a higher prayer level is always helpful. :P

Post-99, there isn't really any more reason to woodcut anymore: I already got the pet, and logs for other skills can be passively acquired elsewhere. But it was fun while it lasted.

~~ Sparrowhawk Fact #4 (Woodcutting) ~~



One of the sparrowhawk's methods of hunting prey is to launch itself from the tree branches, in order to both surprise the prey that's in the open, and to accelerate faster, reaching a speed of up to 50km/h. They also build their nests in trees, which the male does most of the work.

~~ Thread Update ~~

Due to upcoming changes in my real life situation, as well as generally feeling a bit burnt out of playing Runescape, I'll be taking a considerable break from the game. Don't get me wrong, playing an ironman has been some of the most fun I've had in years of playing Runescape, but having played the game for years prior to it, as well as playing the ironman mode daily for half a year in a row, it can only go so far until you just want to try something else for a change.

I don't know yet how long the break is going to be, it depends on how my real life projects unfold; one of them is also related to sparrowhawks, and it's a pretty big project, so we're likely talking about several months at least. But I want to thank everyone who has supported me so far; just like in real life, first-year male sparrowhawks tend to have a rough time surviving through it. And I hope that my rival, who represents the goshawk, keeps on going! :)
