Shane: How long have you been playing Runescape?
Zzzamorak: Just over 2 years now, I started in june 2004
Shane: Ah, I see. So after Rs-2 came out.
Zzzamorak: or I would have 9 hp 🙂
Shane: Have you had any other accounts on Runescape?
Zzzamorak: Yes, I have lots of accounts, all fun accounts in some way or another.
Shane: ah ok.
Shane: I take it you want to keep these secret 😉
Zzzamorak: I got a defence pure, a pure quester, an attempt at a very low level legend, and some others 😛
Zzzamorak: yea I keep those secret
Shane: yea. That’s perfectly fine with us.
Shane: What gave you the idea to make Zzzamorak?
Zzzamorak: Hm, I just started mining and smithing, and figured it would be fun to just keep on doing that without training combat at all.
Shane: What was the inspiration for your name?
Zzzamorak: Hehe, Zamorak. I thought it would be ironic to be named after the god of wildy on a non combat account 😛
Shane: yea that is kinda ironic.
Shane: So anyways, what was your first 99 skill?
Zzzamorak: Fletching, I got it around Christmas 2004
Shane: Yea Fletching is good, I like that one too.
Zzzamorak: me too 🙂
Shane: What is your least favourite skill?
Zzzamorak: That has to be runecrafting. It used to be mining, because of all the clicking, but when granite came out I found a way to mine while watching movies so I didn’t get bored to death. Still haven’t found a way to not get bored runecrafting though 🙁
Shane: Hmm yea I see.
Shane: Also Runecrafting can be expensive, with that pure essence update not so long ago
Zzzamorak: I think I bought enough for 99 before that update 😛
Shane: ohh that’s good 🙂
Shane: So what is your most favourite skill?
Zzzamorak: Probably herblore, I like to mix potions 🙂
Shane: Yep Herblore is a good skill.
Shane: What would you say is your best way of making money on Runescape?
Zzzamorak: My way of making money is by playing smart. I spent a couple of years studying economics, and itâ€™s amazing how much of it can be applied to Runescape. I find ways to train skills that give me the best exp and income compared to the amount of time I spend.
Shane: Yea it’s really interesting how the real life economic laws come into play in Runescape.
Shane: But if you had to pick one skill for money making what would it be?
Zzzamorak: Currently I’m smelting iron for cash, sounds silly but it’s quite good actually
Shane: Ah ok.
Shane: What are some short/long term goals that you have on Runescape?
Zzzamorak: Very short term goal is 50 slayer. I’m having a party in 1 hour lol
Shane: Ah, that must be interesting to get when you don’t want to fight anything that will raise a combat stat.
Shane: So I assume Rubber chicken and rings of recoil?
Zzzamorak: yea, rubber chicken, recoil rings and some wine 🙂
Zzzamorak: Long term I’m going for 99 smithing, just by smelting iron. Also Iâ€™m trying to get a few more skills to 90, and possibly crafting and thieving to 99
Shane: Excellent goals.
Shane: So tell me about Peacefull, how did that start?
Zzzamorak: Me and pinkfusion thought it would be nice to have a place just for skill pures, so we started Clan Peacefull. Pink knew some nice people at rsbandb ;), who allowed us to set up a forum on their servers.
Zzzamorak: Then we just ran around contacting every skill pure we knew about .
Shane: yea the rsbandb server 😉
Zzzamorak: yup 🙂
Shane: Any short or long term goals for peacefull?
Zzzamorak: I guess a goal is to get more of the skill pures we know about to join. We got a lot of them already, but one more is always nice 🙂
Zzzamorak: other than that itâ€™s just continue to be a place where skill pures can discuss how to play as a low level, develop our guides on quests and so on.
Shane: One final question for you, do you have any advice for people out there who want to start a skill pure?
Zzzamorak: Hm, don’t drop trade is actually a very good advice. Besides the fact that it’s not allowed, training a pure skiller from scratch gives you a sense of achievement that people who just drop things from a main don’t get.
Shane: What would the best skill be for a new skill-pure off of tutorial island be to start training?
Zzzamorak: Hm, woodcutting or fishing is good for making cash right away or maybe run some essence just to make enough cash for that rune axe 🙂
Shane: Thanks for your time 🙂
Shane: Been a pleasure
Zzzamorak: Likewise 🙂
