Hello,

What do prefer to play? A Skiller which is normally classed as non-combat skills training.
Or a Main which is training every single skill in RuneScape.

I mean, I personally started as a skiller when I played for quite a long time. Then when I felt complete as a skiller and wanted to try more content that wasn't possible as a skiller I simply just stopped.

Both really fun options I think everyone should try because it definitely poses a few new challenges to obtain certain levels while maintaining that level 3 status. :P

I've personally only ever used the term "main" to refer to the main account of mine that I play on. If I mostly played on my skiller account it would still be considered my main.

True. I am currently a skiller with very low stats working my way up.
But I've actually decided to get all non-combat skills to 50 for a good skill base for quests etc and then work on combat skills.

Just for context, I've been playing since RSC so also from day one that RS2 was released up to now. I didn't start this game as a skiller but I eventually found my gravitating towards it where all I would really do was non combat skills. This was also back when the game didn't offer as much as it does now so at the time I didn't feel like I was missing out on much, it was also back when the old community was around and they would talk about anything and everything to anyone so skilling was a very social event.

Once I started getting to the higher levels in non combat skills that's when I eventually started feeling like I was missing out. I could make this and that but I couldn't use it or do anything with any of it - that's when I decided to stop only focusing solely on non combat skills.

Fast forward to now? In my opinion, being a skiller now is just unnecessarily handicapping yourself and I am so glad I decided to ditch that mindset before EOC and everything that followed after that. If someone wants to do that, fair play but.. it's akin to permanently tying one hand behind your back once you get into the 90+ levels.

This will only be further accentuated in January due to the M&S overhaul which has been very clearly designed from the ground up with skilling in mind (there's a difference between skilling and skillers AKA. level 3 accounts).

To get the second best and best pickaxe in the game? It requires doing multiple quests that involves combat, the "minigame" that you need to do to get the imcando pickaxe also involves a degree of combat. In order to make masterwork and trimmed masterwork armour that requires access to the dragonforge which also requires completion of the quest While Guthix Sleeps (which involves a handful of quests that requires combat, as well as WGS).

Ten or so years ago? Being a skiller made sense due to how little the game offers back then, but the direction the game has gone in since then has kind of invalidated them.

I've found my single, main account to be sufficient for my 10+ years of game play. Never uses treasure hunter keys. Never buys runepass, runecoins or bonds. Never pays extra for 'Premier' status. Never will.

Being a skiller and not doing combat locks you out of too much content, including the best skilling areas and best tools for skilling at higher levels, so a main makes the game more enjoyable. You can't even teleport or high alch as a skiller since Magic gives combat levels. Hi.

Not worth it to be a skiller at the moment IMO. Maybe in the future if Jagex implements official skiller game mode.


Nah if they'll make any more "modes" official, they might as well make them all.
