Introduction


Welcome to my thread on the goals I wish to accomplish as a witcher in Old School Runescape! The thread is split into 9 "minigoals" (they aren't necessarily small, they just make up a bigger picture), with each following post in the first page dedicated to one such goal. For information of each goal, feel free to check out their respective posts; note that the information of a goal is hidden if it hasn't been started yet. Though from a goal's name and color, you might be able to figure out what the goal is about, or related to...

If you don't know what a witcher is, below is a brief summary.


About witchers


Based on the Witcher saga by Andrzej Sapkowski, witchers are professional monster slayers, mutants who boost their combat skills with toxic potions and mutagens that only their bodies can endure. They adopt all 3 combat styles: melee in the form of a steel sword for humans and a silver sword for monsters, ranged in the form of weapons like throwing daggers, and magic in the form of signs that have various effects when cast.

In Runescape, our character is similar to a witcher: he typically slays many a monster, uses all 3 combat styles, and drinks some nasty potions for boosts. And though a steel sword is effective against humans, it's also effective against monsters, except demons and vampires, for which silver does the job.

Goal #2 - Assassins of Kings


Witchers don't wish to take part in the politics of kings if they can at all avoid it, but at times they are practically forced to serve them, or worse, slay them. In the depths of Waterbirth island reside kings of monsters, which luckily can be killed for the greater good. The goal here is to rid Gielinor of their threat and to obtain as many of their valuable rings as possible.

Archers rings received: 2 || current drystreak: 302 kills || longest drystreak: 302 kills

Berserker rings received: 5 || current drystreak: 22 kills || longest drystreak: 369 kills

Seers rings received: 8 || current drystreak: 62 kills || longest drystreak: 220 kills

Warrior rings received: 7 || current drystreak: 15 kills || longest drystreak: 288 kills


Note: The amount of kills for the drystreaks is calculated from the Dagannoth King that drops that specific ring only, so e.g. 50 kills dry for an archers ring means 50 Supreme kills dry.

Goal #3 - The Wild Hunt


Given the choice, witchers prefer to work alone, but there are some beings in Gielinor too who can detect magic, and are thus attracted to the monster slayers. The goal here is to attract the attention of as many of such beings, pets, as possible. Pets are listed in the order they were received; duplicate pet drops are highlighted with a different color.

Unique pet drops: 11 / 42

#1 - Giant squirrel - received at 90 agility
#2 - Prince black dragon - received at 29 kc
#3 - Beaver - received at 89 woodcutting
#4 - Vorki - received at 1169 kc
#5 - Skotos - received at 27 kc

#6 - Pet kraken - received at 1806 kc
#7 - Herbi - received at 8341st harvest
#8 - Rift guardian - received prior to 99 (exact level forgotten)
#9 - Pet kraken #2 - received at 2860 kc

#10 - Pet dagannoth rex - received at 85 kc

#11 - Ikkle hydra - received at roughly 1k kc (exact kc forgotten)
#12 - Pet smoke devil - received at 1188 kc
#13 - Ikkle hydra #2 - received at 2002 kc
#14 - Vorki #2 - received at 4793 kc

Goal #4 - Hearts of Stone


Gielinor is a dangerous world; lots of beings out there looking to kill you, yet even so, there are exceptionally cruel creatures, some with hearts made literally out of stone. Here, the goal is to acquire as many of these hearts as possible, and turn them into useful use. This goal is also dynamic; if new monsters that fit the description are added, they'll be added to this goal too.

===
Cerberus
===
Total kills: 4695
Eternal crystals received: 3
Pegasian crystals received: 10
Primordial crystals received: 11
Smouldering stones received: 7

=== Bonus: "Heartstreaks" from Cerberus ===
Cerberus drops 4 hearts, all with an equal chance to drop, so for statistical interest, here are the streaks during which a specific heart was/is the most frequent to have been dropped.

#1 - Primordial - 209 to 403 kc = 194 kills || former record
#2 - Primordial - 570 to 1655 kc = 1085 kills || former record
#3 - Primordial - 1713 to 3161 kc = 1448 kills || current record
#4 - Primordial - 3259 to ??? kc = ??? kills || ongoing streak

So far, my most frequent drop has always been either the primordial crystal or it has been a tie between 2 or more drops (ties are not listed). Not gonna complain about that, easy money! > )

Goal #8 - Royal Huntsman


When collecting the reward for contracts, witchers are usually asked to present proof of the deed being complete in the form of trophies, often in the form of the head of the slain creature(s). The goal here is to collect as many unique trophies as possible from various monsters of Runescape; the numbers in brackets indicate how many trophies over or below the drop rate I've received (presented with a + or a - respectively).

Note: Only the drops that are unique to each monster or type of monster are included, so e.g. uncut onyxes for Zulrah are not included because it's not in any way unique to Zulrah. Also, if another goal features a drop that would fit as a trophy, it's not repeated here.

Vorkath

Total kills: 4900
Heads received: 120 (+21)

Goal #9 - Mutagenerator


Mutagens and the mutations they cause are on the core what separate witchers from common men, and though Zulrah's mutagens are used for purely cosmetic purposes and aren't applied onto yourself but rather on the equipment, it still aids in combat by giving a more intimidating appearance. The goal here is to get 3 of each mutagen from Zulrah, one of each for the serpentine helmet, one of each for the potential blowpipe recolors in the future, and the last one of each just in case something else is added on top of the previous two.

=== Mutagens received in total so far ===
Magma mutagens: 1 / 3

Tanzanite mutagens: 0 / 3


=== Mutagens received between 1 and 5000 kc ===


=== Mutagens received between 5001 and 10000 kc ===
None so far.
