RuneScape Players Wiki

The Second pair, received exactly a week later on June 27th, 2011.

Taker25700 (Mostly known as Taker) has been playing RuneScape since April 3, 2005. He found out about the game from his friends in middle school. Taker was frequently teased at school and avoided for being a "noob" in the game, but eventually when his friends quit at the time he kept playing. His perseverance left him besting his old friends and eventually obtaining all 99 skills prior to the release of Invention.

Hailing from North New Jersey, Taker has always been one for nature. Woodcutting was his first level 99 skill, followed shortly by fletching and fishing. He prefers skilling in the Elf territories of Isafdar. The elf series is his favorite questline, and he had expressed great joy on Sal's Realm of Runescape after the release of Prifddinas. Taker is the original author of the Sal's Realm Prifddinas guide.  

Taker is known for his incredible luck. The first strike was in May 2008, where he received two Robin Hood Hats from a level 3 clue scroll. They were 2.5 million coins each at the time.

When he became an avid slayer, he received a dragon chainbody drop within his first 200 Dust Devil kills ever. His most recent string of luck involves receiving a pair of Ranger Boots from a level 2 clue scroll dropped by a Mummy, and then getting another pair of Ranger Boots from a level 2 clue scroll also dropped by a Mummy about a week later. In total, he received 28,000,000 coins, and then 35,000,000 coins.

The First Ranger Boots received on June 20th, 2011

As of June 4th, 2016, his total level is 2591 and combat level 138. He was the 973rd person to achieve 99 Construction on May 30, 2009, one day short of the third anniversary of the release of Construction. Taker is not a fan of the invention skill, which is his only skill not at level 99.

Small fact about Taker is that out of his 12 level 99 skills, many of them took place on the 30th day or the end of the month.

Taker has gone through a series of name changes. Some of which include "Takerzela" (A reference to vuvuzelas from the world cup), "Taky Perry" (A play on words of Katy Perry), "Takerr", "Takerairwave", and currently "FalloutTaker".

Taker is known as a trendsetter. He is a frequent user of the friends chat "Salmoneus", and started a trend amongst the other users in which they would incorporate the word "Tree" into their usernames. He is patiently waiting for the name "Taker" to become available. As of June 2016, this has not happened.
