I finally reached 99 cooking in RuneScape after an eight-month grind. Here is a screenshot of me leveling up. I still can't believe this actually happened. W00t!
Of course, this monumental task would have been much harder without the help of friends. I'd like to thank Vera02 and Jeboy for swapping their raw lobsters for my cooked. I also owe my gratitude to Cbkmy for letting me cook his swordfish. The same goes for everyone else who sold me supplies. There are too many people to name, but you know who you are.
In my opinion, the biggest problem with RuneScape is that training is too repetitive. Doing the same thing over and over again quickly gets old. I'd probably be among the top 10 cooks right now had I really tried. That said, being the 36th person to reach 99 cooking certainly gives me bragging rights. :-)
In other news...
On a related note, good luck to fellow RuneScape player Thehate as he is also getting 99 cooking soon!
