Sup. I'm Xens.

I'm new to Alora, and I thought why not make the time I play on this server fun so I decided to
set the challenge of maxing every skill to it's XP cap..

One at a time.

On an HCIM account.

I'll be updating this post every time I hit a milestone, get a nice drop/pet, any random occurrences..

And finally hitting 200m XP in a skill of course.

I'm don't doing this in the fastest way possible, I'm going to make it fun including different ways of gaining loot via skilling
as well as collecting high kill counts of mobs whilst maxing skills out so I hope you all look forward to that.

I'm beginning this challenge with thieving so I'll be at the stalls in Edgeville for awhile, so come say hi.

For future skills, let me know ideas you have of ways I can gain XP whilst doing some fun stuff. If I like your idea, I'll
dedicate 25m XP to that idea.


Thanks for reading.

WEEK ONE

SO! We've made big progress! But we've also found a crux in this challenge..

HP will be trained no matter what, so I have allowed the training of HP alongside all skills.

 

With that being said it's made this task VERY interesting as currently, I want to get the thieving pet BEFORE I max thieving.
 
So I want to pickpocket Heroes. And they can do a nasty bit of damage. So I thought..
 
How could I gain HP XP without doing any other skill.. And I came to a conclusion.
 
XP Lamps.
 
So the main source of lamps for me currently is random instances / achievement diaries.. So figured why not try some achievement diaries?

And I soon realised, the ONLY set of achievement diary tasks I could complete WITHOUT breaking rules.. Was Ardy Easy.
 
So that's what I did.

I got my Ardy 1 cape and as predicted, an XP Lamp which went straight onto HP allowing for some breathing room to do hero pickpocketing.

Also, that easy task list is the ONLY set I can do until I max out thieving. So this single mechanic has made this playthrough super interesting.
 
Now, with 34 HP and 193M Thieving XP to gain.. I continued the grind.
 
16/08/2022 | 99 Thieving achieved

Over the week I weighed up all my options for gaining XP, from
Vyres to Elves, and after seeing the requirement to get access
to these places, Heroes were literally my only/best option.

We're now sitting at 32 Million Thieving XP and Rank 6 in the HCIM Thieving Highscores.

I'm aiming to take the 3rd ever HCIM Max Thieving position so hopefully we can make some major progress this coming week.


Thanks for reading, see you all next week. :)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEEK TWO

This week, I don't really have an update.

My time has been pretty stretched as I'm working two jobs currently so having that time to grind is tough.

But I did manage to get another pet drop so that's funny.  :D 

Hopefully I'll have more to report next Sunday, have a great week everyone.  :lol: 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEEK THREE

ALRIGHT, here we are! Three weeks into our journey!

We've made some serious progress since last weeks lack-lustre numbers which is fantastic.

Since being at 32m XP last Sunday, we're now sitting at a pretty 53m XP!


Which also means one more thing..

e324b27f07a3e233014cd161da4a2a3f.jpeg

We're now sitting in 4th in the HCIM Thieving Highscores!

But this also leads us onto our next task.. Taking 3rd.

This means this week I aim to gain at least 28 Million XP.

And then just the final major grind, 200M XP. 

BESIDES THAT.. I've gained another two pets so that's a thing, as well as using my vote points to earn the rogue set. (MAKE SURE YOU GO COLLECT YOUR VOTES!)

VOTE HERE  ;) 

I appreciate you all keeping tabs on our journey and I'll see you all NEXT SUNDAY, when I should be Ranked 3rd in HCIM Thieving!



I want to begin giving a shoutout to anyone on a new journey that I'm interested in so here we go:

Big shout out to
@ClosedCasket and him beginning a new journey on his new UIM, which he'll be focusing on Clues and him documenting what he gets and his clue count! Go show the man some love!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEEK FOUR

A short but sweet update for you all this week, mega late due to some IRL stuff but here we are.

Finally after four weeks we've reached Ranked 3rd HCIM in Thieving! Whey!

b634ffb7409573bd28b31cc68c8a7022.jpeg

So this brings these updates to an interesting point because for the next 4-5 weeks will JUST be XP updates. Which is boring.

Doing Thieving the way I'm doing it is borderline torture as many people I've spoken to during my time in Alora so far can agree.

So I'm making the decision to stop the updates until I've completed the 200M XP goal.


So with that said.. See you all in about a month. :)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEEK FIVE

SO.. About that month break from updates..

I've got ONE MORE week of content for you guys before I actually go radio silent until I max Thieving.

This week I've been doing some other fun stuff, one which I'll reveal the results of during my WEEK SIX update.

Mainly, I decided to complete all of the Thieving skill related Achievement Diary tasks which goes as follows:


Pickpocket Master Farmer North of Ardy x35
Pickpocket Men in Lumby x25
Pickpocket Master Farmer in Draynor x35

78006d672663261a13130d72c33c7dd2.jpeg6096258b26934068caccef03dbf9be40.jpeg6bf30da7e9a17d04290101bbea57ec0c.jpeg

So that's all the possible tasks ticked off until the next skill.

This was genuinely really fun, although it took me literally 10-20 minutes, doing something different from pickpocketing Heroes in Ardy was a huge difference.

Definitely made me appreciate the smaller activities and variety of content there is in Alora and Runescape.


Anyway, back on to the second lil' project I'm doing as a bit of a break from Heroes.

I'm going to be spending from the 19th, to the 23rd of this month just Pickpocketing from the Master Farmer in Draynor.
e4323bd91c68fa1efde273acde8edbdd.jpeg

This is sort of a mixture of, me needing a break from the massive 100m grind I've been on and helping myself set up for 200m Farming XP whenever I decide to take that challenge on.

We're now sitting at 112m XP in Thieving and we're getting SO CLOSE to finishing this skill, I'm super excited to move onto the next skill and I can't wait to share it with you all.

c4646b6ebc5fc390a4cae2367c4179f7.jpeg

Oh also I got my 5th Thieving pet. Lil' Rocky V.
bdea5d9563dedf3a01f1dc796056b531.jpeg


With all that being said, I'll catch you all next week with my next update. :)

Interesting concept! All the best with the journey!

The stalls at home aren’t the only source of thieving; try the NPC’s at Darkmeyer or Prifddinas !

I appreciate all the kind words and praise! This week's update should come on Sunday afternoon and there's already been a great finding making this challenge REAL fun early game and helps set the route of skills I want to take.

Looking forward to updating you all.

Nice progress! Honestly you should post a new topic everytime you do a update so more people know that theres an update. I didnt even know there was a progress update until I saw the shoutbox lol (idk how many people check it but i usually dont). but keep it up you're doing great.
