Live Q&A - We Ask You!

This weekend we're bringing you a live question and answer session with a twist - this time we ask YOU the questions!
On Saturday from 5pm forum time, I'll be posting up juicy RuneScape questions that should really get you thinking. This is a chance to tell us your side of the story.
We always love to read your feedback and hear what you have to say and we’ve a stack of questions on the Wildy, clans and your general RuneScape experience up our modly sleeves.
The great thing about having a live session is that answers will inevitably generate more questions. That means we have no idea where the session will end up, but if we end up discussing the virtues of being a monkey or the best cup cake ingredient, you’ll only have yourselves to blame!

After the Q&A we’ll gather all your responses together to make sure that everyone who posts an answer is heard.
I'll be posting the questions on this thread, and you'll be able to post your answers here too. Here's the first question to get you started:
In your opinion, what is the toughest skill to start training?
I'll unlock this thread on Saturday afternoon at 5pm; can't wait to see your answers :)

Q2) I would rather you concentrate and put more effort/money into the game content rather than this other stuff.
Q3) Nothing really, im more into staking and pvm.
Q4) Dont really pk much
Q5) Efficiency, I make money elsewhere other than skilling.

The toughest skill to start training is summoning. Not only do you have to first complete a quest, but you then have to collect charms and other materials, before you can even begin to start leveling (excluding exp gained from the quest).

In my opinion, Dungeoneering is the most toughest to train, as finding 3-4 other players around your same combat level, AND your dungeoneering level/floor level, is quite tough. It really is. Then, some players just aren't teamplayers. They don't care. They'll leech from you. "I don't want to die though!" Yeah yeah, whatever.
Second would have to be summoning though. It takes quite a while to find all the charms, and on top of that, you pay quite the big bucks to level it up. However, I feel like it's not as bad as it was before.
Next question please! :P

"In your opinion, what is the toughest skill to start training?"
It's by far Summoning - you have to collect charms and spend a great amount on items to get the xp. However, it could be said to be Prayer as to start properly training you need lots of money.

I'd have to say the toughest skill to START training would have to be Dungeoneering, not because it's really physically hard to play, but because prestige can look so complex at first, and finding out how to get good exp can seem daunting.

For all skills, it's Dungeoneering for certain. (Note, I haven't started training it yet)
It is such a large skill, I really have no clue on how to start training this skill as a skiller.
On the skills I have trained allready, it's construction.
It is also a large skill, but the fact is, is that if you want to start, you first need to have a room or multiple rooms to have a good house.
Every room has different things to add, most items need different materials to be made.
Finding out on which room has which items, and which items need which materials is the hardest part. Planks are the most needed part of Construction, yes. But some items require nails, other glass, other limestone, or runes or bars or this or that.
I always forget to add 1 thing you need to make an item.
Then again, some things need a certain lvl in another skill. Example: for the rune cases you'll need to required runecrafting lvl.
On other things, you don't need a required lvl in another skill. Example: For you garden, you don't need any farming lvl to add trees. (no matter which kind of tree). But you do get xp in farming on the other hand. :) So it's also hard to see what needs another lvl other then the required construction level.
It's a fun and cool skill thou. :) It is helpfull in mining with the telescope! :D And, it also gives a certain extra bankspace. :) And a fun place to have fun with your friends!
