Hey guys this is my first thread, ages ago I created an account when it was called "Fordana" A couple of days ago I came back and am hooked :D I have been training and now have 50 combat and 50 magic, I'm wondering how to proceed, train combat for better weapon or train magic and get into the magic guild for the magic robes or whatever they are for a stat boost,

Thanks guys :D

better off training combat to get mostly lava gear. magic robes aren't til 80, and it takes a while to get to 80. And the +10 Armor is the same as the Ranger Armor at 80 and the Lava Armor at 80. Or power Arson and get the fire robes :P

In your position I would train combat primarily, but train magic up to 60 or 65. Increasing your magic at this point will only allow you to have the magic cape any time soon, as the other items are a far ways off. The time magic really becomes good to you after level 60/65 is at level 75 with the +4 stat increases, but that'll take a very long time to level up, whereas combat increases your overall hit-points and is generally just the most accepted skill.

You hit 60 CB and no matter your Magic you can wear the magic cape. v.V dummy. Magic is good when you hit the Ruby Wand until you start grindin on River Trolls, then you'll want 75 Magic for the Diamond Wand. Crack at Combat for a while :P hit 70's for lava :) it's your best bet.

In short, I'm echoing warkings. Train mostly Combat. Train a little Magic as you need it, maybe 55 would be sufficient. Additional training will prepare you for the next tier, but won't provide many benefits over Combat, unless you use bows and arrows.

I'm a mage, primarily, but I still recommend training combat, first, like I did. Magic is trained when you teleport or cast spells to use while training combat, so you don't really need to focus on it until you get an item that needs a higher level, or are preparing to buy one. If you want to prepare, you could train to Magic 55 to wear the best stuff for the middle tier, including Silver Gauntlets.

If you're a ranger, who likes using the weapon boost of bows and arrows, Magic 65 is a big help, once you have the 20k gold to buy a diamond ring. Otherwise, the Combat 55 Steel Shield is almost as good and doesn't cost much. (You can't wield a bow and a shield, but you can wield a bow and a ring.)

Eventually, you'll want 70 combat, 72 magic and beyond, but that's the highest tier. By that time, you'll probably have your own strategy in mind from experience and preferences.
