Ever find yourself stuck because to progress in game you have to do things you don't enjoy?

Or are there things it feels like everyone else loves except you?

I feel like that with Slayer, I just just can't motivate myself to train it. There are a few things worse, like Livid Farm, PKing, and emote clues. And by the way, if you happen to love those things, I'm not knocking you for it.

Quests I used to love and now hate, because of hard combat. Another player used to hate quests and now likes them more because of harder combat. So sometimes what makes you love or hate something might be the opposite for someone else.

So I wonder, are the things making me not want to play as much making others want to play more?

I personally miss the days when combat was simpler, easier, more relaxing, and you could safe spot most things. I really hate the combat where you have to constantly run and switch prayers and combat styles and can't relax for a second, or you get one hit KOed.

I'm kind of rambling a little, but mainly I want to know, how do you motivate yourself to do the things you don't enjoy, or possibly find a way to make them enjoyable or at least feel less tedious or less unenjoyable?

honestly ive never got to a state where i was like oh my god i cant do this anymore. ive quit in the past sure but not due to being demotivated. infact for me the longer something takes the more motivated i am to get it. which works well. if its quick its well done. if its long (like ralph) then yes im like nope i gotta do it i spent x time so far so i cant stop now.

Of course, different players have different preferences. Different players enjoy doing certain things and dislike doing some others.

That's why the Gowers invented the xp lamps, especially the prismatic ones. They give players the choices to progress in areas where they don't enjoy doing while training things they enjoy. :)

Group-only bosses. When soloing something, you can do it at any time you want, and you're responsible 100% for whatever happens. When you're forced to group up, not only is it sometimes a hassle to even get people ready all at the same time, but you also don't control your own fate 100%, because someone else can mess up, which may punish you too.

You wanted to train slayer but do it simple? If you only want to reach a certain level, just keep doing the tasks, and do them inefficiently if it helps you enjoy it more. Eventually you'll reach the desired level, even if it takes longer.

Yeah I might just do easier monsters for slayer which don't make me feel like its too hard and not enjoyable. I don't want to kill chickens which are too easy and unrewarding, but I don't want to kill the Queen black dragon which I never tried but seems like would be really hard.
Abyssal demons are easy, and Airuts are about as hard as I like. Camel warriors I tried, but it was hard and a bit stressful, but I beat them, died a few times though. Those death slayer tasks are almost all things I find too hard and not fun.

So I guess I want a little challenge, but not to feel overwhelmed, and a lot of the harder bosses are outside my comfort zone more that I like.

I tried Armadyl godwars recently solo, not for Slayer just to try it because I never had and was feeling ambitious, I never fought it at all before and I didn't want to go with a team in case I messed it up, but I managed to beat it a few times. The rewards weren't good and made me feel like it was a waste of time and resources, but I was able to beat it which felt good because really I suck at bosses so it was a surprise I could beat it. It probably helped the gear I used was better than it used to be, but for me that was way outside my comfort zone and a harder boss than I usually would try not on a quest.

That damned Advanced Barbarian agility course.

I need to complete a set of laps in order to get my elite set of boots from the Fremennick Achievements...but in order to complete this task, you have to have an agile top which requires those 250 laps. Oh wait, my bad, they need to be 'perfect' laps (ie no falling/failing).

It's an extremely boring task that honestly doesn't feel very 'elite' at all. For 250 grueling laps, you just click stuff. Even with an agility aura, you just can't shake the grind.

Agility can eat my shorts!

There is a Surefooted Aura which will make you not fail obstacles which you could use to get perfect laps, and you can break it up into doing a few laps a day, like say 25 or 50 laps a day. Its still boring, but breaking it up makes it feel like less of a grind, and fortunately the perfect laps don't have to be all in a row so if you fail an obstacle it won't break the count.

Quests.

Finally got qpc a few yrs back then Endgame had to get released and now im stuck w/o it:@

Also the gosh forsaken invention pet never wants to be caught and im currently over 100mxp dry.


Yeah I had the quest cape on a couple characters, then quests changed so I went from loving quests to not even wanting to do them after a while.

I don't even try for pets any more, if I get them I get them. Maybe I'll try for pets sometime, but right now there are other goals I want to achieve.

Combat in general is the most boring, mind-numbing content in the game. Slayer even more so.


I used to enjoy it more, but over time I lost interest in it, and now I find it hard to make myself train Slayer at all.
