I was considering making a UIM maxing guide but the methods that I would suggest wouldn't be viable so I thought I'd just make a progress thread that people could follow instead. It will just be explanations of what I did and just some pictures to go with it.
Note: I'm writing this from memory and I'm not gonna include little details, there's a lot of pictures and just me rambling.
Creation Date - 26 November 2021
Part 1 - Beginning of the account & Skilling
When I made this account, the plan was to do some afk skills and get 200m xp in some skills and just leave it at that. This was around the time I was going for 200m all on my main account so I thought I might as well.
The first and most obvious skill to get to 200m was woodcutting. Easy to start and close to no requirements. I did nothing else from when I started woodcutting right to about 150m exp.
Once I got to 150m woodcutting exp, I decided to take a break and take advantage of low level revenants while I had the chance. 60/60/60 att/str/def at sand crabs and straight to revs. I used the cash I got from revs to buy feathers to make unfinished arrows.
At this point I took a 3 month break to play other accounts.
I came back and decided to do some other skills because I didn't know what I needed from woodcutting. I stopped at 150m xp because I wanted to get a bunch of 200m xp's at once.
Mining was a good second skill to start because I could use the arrow shafts I got from woodcutting and I'm getting exp in several skills at once. I decided to make 100k amethyst darts and 100k amethyst arrows which turned out to be a bad idea which I'll talk about later.
Once again, I stopped at 150m mining xp just incase there's some collection log stuff I needed to get.
Next skill that has a low barrier to entry was agility. Literally 0 supplies to use and all I need to do was collect marks of grace off the ground.
This was the only agility pet I got on my way to 200m agility xp. Not much to talk about here really. I ran 3k ardounge rooftop laps on my way to 200m agility exp. I suicided my agility pet because I couldn't afford to insure it. Dropped the dark acorn as well.
Next up, fishing. Get to 81 fishing, go ::dz2 and afk for a bunch of hours. Stopped at 150m xp because I planned to do some tempoross to finish off 200m xp and tempoross collection log. Still haven't gotten around to doing that.
Here's what my looting bag looked like when I started fishing.
FYI if you have a pet following you and you are an UIM and your inventory is full, the pet drops to the ground.
At this point my memory is kinda blurred. I did a lot of little things at once such as getting 185m xp in fletching, 99 farming from seeds that I got at revs & bird nests from the woodcutting grind, and lastly I did about 60mish xp of wintertodt. The reason I only did 60m exp is because I was too lazy to do it all at once and I eventually leveled up my hp.
At this point I decided I cba getting 200m xp at once, so I went and got 200m xp in cooking, mining, agility and fletching.
I got about 40-45m crafting exp from the 200m mining grind and I got a decent amount of uncut gems from the minerals that you get while mining amethyst.
Another skill I can take advantage of while being a low level is prayer. Prayer meta on uim is to catch dragon imps and use the bones. Catching 1k dragon imps and 500 ish lucky implings got me to 99 hunter, from 94 I think.
The issue was, I got 100k amethyst arrows for when I get a twisted bow, and 100k amethyst darts for when I get blowpipe. The problem with that is, is that I forgot to plan so I got like 30k dragon arrows and 20k dragon darts along with my amethyst stuff. I wasn't planning to do Corrupted gauntlet at this moment either.
Here's the loot I got from this grind.
It was quite fast to get 200m prayer exp, the most annoying thing was dying to nooby pures every so often when I wasn't paying attention.
What I did was take 200 d bones, teleport to kbd and run to altar and use the bones, then suicide to chaos fanatic and take out bones from nightmare storage and repeat.
Quickly finished the last 50m xp of my woodcutting grind.
One thing to note is that the speed difference between bronze and dragon tools is very minimal (like 10 seconds per inventory), so I just used a bronze pickaxe and bronze axe to get 200m exp.
At this point I decided to use up random supplies I had, and level up my combats to 99. I suicided the vote pet because I couldn't afford to insure it.
Part 2 - Gauntlet Prison & Random
The infamous gauntlet grind. The plan was to get lucky with an enhanced seed and to just grind 2 of them out. Went 665 dry for one. Not as bad as some people (
Randomly got 99 construction (I think I leeched a cox run or 2)
1st pvm pet
Got gold ore & pure essence from a cox leech so I quickly went and got 99 smithing & runecrafting.
Here is what the inventory & looting bag looked like after this grind.
Part 3 - Pvming and getting ready for raids
Now that I got the Bowfa, I can FINALLY start pvming. The plan was to get ready for cox.
90% of my herblore exp was gained through tears of guthix because I got my potions from the daily rewards & suppy chests.
Luck decided to redeem itself at zulrah out of all places.
Pretty useless because if I put compost into it, I won't be able to store it in my looting bag.
Zulrah scales in the bag.
Took 2 attempts because I lagged on my first zuk.
Took me 1k kc to get prims on my main and 1k kc to get prims on my iron. Got about 10 pegasians across both accs so why not have opposite luck on this account?
Decided to go Nex when bonus came up. Literally the last kill of the day.
Zenytes. Very happy I got spooned here. Don't have a use for suffering/torm bracelet at the moment so I have no reason to go back here for now.
It gets a bit chaotic here. I decided to get a craws bow to get 3.5k red spider eggs from venenatis. Ended up getting the rarest emblem drop. Took a while to get the craws bow too.
This is where I began to go for the spider eggs. The kills started getting rough when I ran out of ranging potions.
Thankfully I didn't go 1k dry for this.
Decided to max.
Part 4 - Current Stats, Bank and thoughts
The most annoying thing by far is the nonstop organisation of inventory and looting bag.
I've spent over 100m cash constantly suiciding, which is why I randomly decided to do revenants.
The goals for now is to get a basilisk jaw, a bandos set, dwh and then grind for a twisted bow. I might decide to convert the Bowfa into a blade if I get a t bow but I'm not sure yet because Bowfa is bis at Nex and some other places.
It's 3am and i cba proof reading + ratio + irrelevant + didnt ask + ratio x2
