The reintroduction of the wilderness in 2011 and RuneScape gold the subsequent removal of Revenants to dungeons were two of the factors that saved my life. This allowed me to kill Ice Warriors within the wilderness for 50kxp per-day, since players have never used the spot.
It took me some time to find it, as I couldn't bear to be on the computer for longer than two hours even AFK. I finally got it the summer of 2012. I was so relieved. It was ironic that I was able to not tank with my 99 defense just after I achieved my 99 Defense EOC. I did tank once during a battle between Sals Realm & another clan. At that point I was at in 98 defense.
Honorable mentions The first time I was 99, a fire-making. I am proud of the way I persevered and never gave up. Firemaking is a 99 percent job and that's before even bonfires. I had a knack for performing very well in Sals steel war games as well as snowball battles (air strike battles). Since I was of a high rank, but never at the top, it was likely that I did not always land the top job. This is enough for me. I would love to hear yours.
My game-related achievements, which required only a bit of work, don't give me much satisfaction. I am glad that I achieved combat and melee levels to the max however, I'm not sure I could claim to be proud of my achievements. It didn't require any thinking quick responses, any other kind of effort. It took patience, persistence, perseverance, and time.
But still if I had to pick one it would be 99 Prayer, I think. Because I wasn't a prodigy back in 2006 and 2007, I didn’t think I could afford it. 99 Attack buy RS gold was my first combat 99.
