Now that i have hit 99 firemaking, im not sure what to do now, mining or fishing, or just quest and chill.

Hit 99 firemaking on Saturday night, 16th March 2019. Ended up just buying 2.5k redwood logs and burning them, so much faster than wintertodt but more expensive. was getting about 600k per hour doing it that way i think, but it cost about 600-700k. Now not sure what to concentrate on. Might do questing and mining.
Firemaking was a good still to get 1st 99 as it was super fast compared to some of the others, i think with fishing if you do 3 tick barb fishing its about 60k per hour. So if you calculate that into hour/days its.
Fishing / 3-tick Barbarian Fishing:
Current Level / xp : 50 / 109244
Target Level / xp : 99 / 13034431
Experience Till Target: 12925187
12925187 / 60000 = 215.5 Hours of Barb Fishing to Max at 60k per hour.
Which works out to be 258,504 Leaping Trout, or 184,646 Leaping Salmon, which is why they suggest you start barb fishing at level 58 i guess.
I read that you get up to 60k per hour, barbarian fishing, and if you 3-tick Barbarian Fishing (up to 110k xp/hr at level 99). So maybe average that out to 90k per hour, thats pretty click intensive i guess as well.
12925187 / 90000 = 143 Hours, About 6 days solid to get max fishing.

Hit 98 Firemaking this morning, but have not been playing much at night due to cold, so not getting much xp in. 3 days for one level is a bit crap, but averaging not many hours per day. Should hopefully have this skill maxed by the weekend! Well on the weekend sometime anyway hopefully. 250 k per hour, 1.2 million xp to go, so should be 5 hours max to go. Then no more wintertodt grinding!
Have not decided what skill to work on next. will decide after i get 99 firemaking.

Still working on wintertodt, the grind is real. But this morning i hit 97 so only 2 levels to go and then i never have to go back! Four days between 94 and 97. Althought i spend a large amount of yesterday on almost 1 million exp in a day, i think i got 1.2 million.

Currently working on getting 99 firemaking as my first 99 skill cape on this account. Grinding wintertodt until i get there, every spare minute will be spent here! Not going to leave until i get it. Currently level 94 and just hit 8 million exp on firemaking. Will add a log here per level to see how long it takes, note that i am not playing all day and night and can only really commit to 2 hours a day playing, so will see how fast it goes.
A log of some of the creatures and what is needed to slay them.
Hunting the Cockatrice
You dont really need much to fight this one, pretty easy low food req, just bring a few lobbies or salmon for this. Limpwart Roots add up and can be sold for a bit if you can be bothered banking in the middle.
Gear: Bring your Mirror Shield, Buy it from your Slayer Master (5k GP)
Location: Best place to farm them is the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon. As i dont have the fairy rings or whatever, i usually just tele to Camelot and then walk north to Relika and then east to the dungeon entrance, its a bit of a walk but not too bad.
Drops: Sometimes drops Medium Clue Scrolls and Mystic Boots (16k GP), lots of limpwart roots.
Best place to farm these hob goblins is in the dungeon near Varrock, South West of Varrock. you will need a key to get in here. Just go down the ladder and North and you will find the Hob Goblins. Pretty easy to farm, dont need that much food. Drop Herbs and Seeds nothing amazing.
Gear: Just fighting gear, you can range these if you want but usually just melee is easy enough.
Location: Varrock Sewers (or is it edgeville dungeon, not sure) See map above for entrance.
Drops: Nothing amazing. Some runs i made 116k from the seeds as they drop snapdragon and some other rare seed which are nice, but mostly GP and bones and some low herbs.
