What's your favorite skill to level, and enjoyably? I think I like to train magic in general if costs for supplies and stuff weren't taken into consideration. & I don't mean like alchemy, like ancients/damage spells. :P Or ranging with high level bolts perhaps.

Woodcutting is my favorite skill, however, with 99 already, I can gain no more levels. That doesn't keep me from it though. I can still gain experience, ranks, and, of course, money. Woodcutting is great, because it's something you can do while chatting. I'm not the type to log into the game and do nothing. If I log in primarily to talk to friends, I woodcut while I do so. Other than woodcutting, my favorites are smithing, herblore, and farming. Smithing I like much more than mining, therefore, I normally buy ores for smithing. I used to be able to make money this way, by buying ores and making knives, which turned into profit, as well as totally free experience. Now, however, it's a loss, but being f2p at the moment, I can't work on my other favorite skills. Herblore and farming are both skills that depend on the gathering of other items, herbs for herblore and seeds for farming. I've always refused to buy either of them, unless you count using the Miscellania kingdom as buying. Herbs and seeds can both be gathered by doing other skills. Herbs, seeds, and herb seeds can be acquired through drops from many monsters in the game. Tree seeds can be acquired through nest drops from woodcutting. There are other ways of getting seeds and herbs that don't require buying them, such as the farming mini-game for seeds and herb packs from playing pest control.

I'm surprised you're still committed to WC... :p I got 99 but even at ~98... I decided to power level on secluded willows in rimmington. It's great being multitaskable I agree. I was always selective at farming though - started only doing trees for levels, so I decided to buy them. Smithing is fun, much more than mining. The Varrock level 3 acheivment platebody got me into making tons of mith bolts. Thanks for your response.

I don't know what it is about woodcutting, but I can't stay away from it. I never really intentionally power-leveled it just for the sake of leveling. I only cut willows in the early days and a few times since, when friends would start an account and want someone to keep them company and willows were the highest they could cut. Most of the experience I've gained since getting 99 is from magics. Before I went non-member, I was farming watermelons, herbs, and trees. The watermelon seeds were mostly obtained through the temple trekking/Burgh De Rott Ramble mini-games. The watermelons are good farming experience and are great for making super compost.

I love mining. i have many reasons for likeing mining mostly cuz i get huge money from it but the thought of having other ppl with rune pickaxes thinking they're so good at mining and me stealing their ores makes me happy buy i really don't want you to really think of me as a bad person so ignore what i just wrote.

lol oh don't worry. I know what you mean. I mean, I try to mine away from everyone but some people think they're so great that if they've been stealing from you, you want to compete back. It's not healthy... but its natural, and frustrating lol. So its I think mining is pretty neat but you do have to be pretty attentive. :p Thanks for the response though!

I think I love Farming and Magic and Construction the most, but because they all three are very expensive to train, I don't train them a lot. My skills are: Construction 57 Farming 65 Magic 71 If they were all free, I would think about training them 80-90 or maybe on of them 99...
