            The original RS2 was timeless yes, but the proto RSHD shit OSRS does looks just as atrocious as RS3.

            I mean OSRS is adding while guthix sleeps, they will just tone down what people didn't like. So no adding gods, probably no sliske in the limelight, a better sequel to slug menace etc.

      >successfully identifies 3 parts of the genius puzzle
      >dislikes the final piece
      Part of the genius of OSRS is that you can decide to invest different amounts of attention and be rewarded proportionately. Almost every activity has a high and low attention variation, so even if you don't feel like playing you can still progress your account. You can play it while working, coding, drawing, watching TV, or even playing more OSRS. And in fact, low attention activities become a necessary part of the game as you advance to higher levels where actively grinding for 6-8 hours would make you want to have a nice day. Meanwhile, in (classic) WoW:
      >leveling
      Have to actively pay attention unless you're a paladin, in which case you can download massive amounts of hardcore pornography while playing. Auto-attacking is a death sentence for the majority of classes.
      >production professions
      Leveling professions is basically a gold check with some RNG because the volume you're processing is so low. At best you'll AFK for 3 minutes while making cloth. At max level, you tend to process a an even lower volume of more valuable resources or spend CDs.
      >gathering professions
      Stare at the minimap while running in circles. High attention, low intensity activity.
      >gearing / bossing
      Do I even need to say it? Even FISHING isn't actually very AFK in WoW, it's really annoying to divide your attention between it and anything else. The only AFK activity in WoW is playing the AH.

      For whatever reason, OSRS alone occupies this genius niche.

                To specify why it sucks, I think it is ugly and ruins the old school feeling by being the early game "wear this outfit for everything" meta pick. Agility does need rewards and the effect is good for early gameplay when you don't have staminas, but damn I hate seeing it everywhere in game. I want to see more fashionscape, less gray uniform.

One brief moment where they are raised from irrelevance and emptiness to the role of an artist. On that stage they are transformed from a weak, base thing of flesh and need into a transcendent creature of pure poetry. They lived lives as nobodies - as nothing - and their lives conclude in theatrical perfection. I weep at the simplicity of it, at the elegance.

His eyes were wide in equal parts wonder and horror and I felt the monolith reaching out to him, using the Shadow Realm as arms.

        there's reasons to visit but nothing groundbreaking enough to justify this much extra landmass, especially when 90% of Kourend is still unused.

        It's just pure spectacle and bloat. "Look, we added another city, come resub!" without learning a single thing from their botched implementations of Kourend and Slepe.

          I agree with this, though. All the open space there is a massive pain.

        There's only so much you can really do
        Varlamore itself as a city is one of the best the team has put out since launch imo. Kourend is still a mess after the reworks, slepe only exists for NM/PNM
        The quests that came with it are all pretty good, it's a cool enough aesthetic, and to me it's clear that they've absolutely learned from the botched past two cities
        There's certainly way more to do here than any of the major cities in the mainland.

They were buildings, great cities even, buried in a frozen, sunken slumber. What I could make out of their architecture seemed impossible, and when I try to sleep in this place the strange, distorted shapes of those buildings haunt me. I wonder who could have built them, and whether they ever stood above the surface of the ice. Had they been ruined and buried, or were they somehow built within the ice itself?

    I like the game but holy frick they need to update the controls. Using Autohitkey for hugh level PvM feels almost mandatory unless you're a massive autismo. But instead of baking thsy functionality into the game, they BANNED AHK, a ban which they are completely unable to enforce, so i use it anyway.

    They also cater way too hard to the turbosweats. Tombs of Amascut os fun, right up until you're trying to get past expert mode and suddenly you're legitimately required to abuse bugs and tock manipilation just by default to progress, such as Red Xing BaBa.
    Feels like they should just allow keybonds for certain things like special attacks, prayers etc instead of fighting against the tide to appease a vanishingly small minority of autismos. After all, i can achieve the same thing independently, and there's nothing anyone can dp about it. All they're accomplishing is foltering out newer players (who actually care about the rules).

    Interesting this thread came up as I have never played Runescape let alone OSRS before. But I have always heard good things and im a massive classic wow fan.

    I started yesterday and have a few questions

    How do I get more mind runes to level up magic? I've only found that one that spawns in the castle and I have to keep going back and forth just to be able to cast missile or whatever it is

    Am I fricking myself over by playing the free version? and more to this is it even worth starting OSRS in 2024 as a brand new player or am I wasting my time?

    Im not after a quest thing to tell me exactly where to go but are their quest guides in game that help me without having to read "go southwest etc"

    how do levels work? as far as i can see you have an overall level which adds up all your skills, but enemies have levels like Level 2 or Level 3, sometimes i can kill a level 6 easily others it takes me forever to kill a level 2.

    how can i improve my stamina so i can run longer, the walking is excruciatingly slow

    thanks in advance.

      >are their quest guides in game that help me
      The quest log tells you who to talk to, where, what you need to start it, a summary of what you did and whet you need to do next.
      >how do levels work?
      Combat level is a semi-convoluted mix of your attack, strength, defence, HP, magic, ranged and prayer levels. It's a general guide of how you compare to a monster with the proper equipment for your stat levels.

      combat level is what the enemy (and you and other players) show which is a mix of all your combat stats put together, generally you want to level strength for melee because hitting higher(str) > hitting more but lower hits(attk)> defense is just to equip better armor and iirc its the one that boosts your cb a lot more than the others without doing "heaps" it still does stuff

            Not quite right. Defense stay acts as a multiplier for your defense level roll. Say you have a defense of 10 and 100 bonus, your defense roll is now 1000. at 20 defense with the same amor, it's now 2000. Attack works similarly.

                You're just assuming the game operates on small rolls. The maximum defense roll in Justi with a bulwark is like 17800. The game uses something like 1d35,000 for checking rolls.

      OSRS is mostly a single player game there is no good or bad time to start.

      Optimal quest guide and wiki will walk you through them
      >how do levels work?
      I assume you are referring to combat stats. Basically the more damage you do with an attack the more xp it grants you. This creates 3 major limiting factors on combat xp: Enemy health (more health=more damage you can do=more xp), accuracy (hit more = more damage = more xp), and damage (more damage = more xp)
      >how can i improve my stamina so i can run longer, the walking is excruciatingly slow
      Agi improves your run energy and you will also eventually buy stam pots to give you instant stam back as well as there is a ring that you can get that gives stam back that you can get pretty early on.

      There's a big shop in northwest Varrock called the Grand Exchange that sells pretty much everything. You can buy them there for dirt cheap. There's an NPC-run rune shop in Varrock as well but the prices are shit.
      You're "supposed" to runecraft them, but runecrafting is such a shit skill that it fails at its one purpose.
      >Am I fricking myself over by playing the free version?
      There are some minmax strategies that require membership, but if you're just dicking around to see if you like the game it's fine. By the time you complete Dragon Slayer you'll know whether you want membership or not.
      >and more to this is it even worth starting OSRS in 2024 as a brand new player or am I wasting my time?
      The whole game is a waste of time. That's rather the point.
      >how do levels work? as far as i can see you have an overall level which adds up all your skills, but enemies have levels like Level 2 or Level 3, sometimes i can kill a level 6 easily others it takes me forever to kill a level 2.
      Players have a combat level (what you see on other players / enemies) and a total level. The combat level has some funky formula and you can see your own combat level on the tab that lets you select attack style. Enemy combat levels are almost completely arbitrary, but generally higher = more raw power. They don't take into account items/food/prayers either, so for example you could probably kill a Lesser Demon (lv82) in melee combat at around level 40-45 if you're properly equipped, or even lower if you cheese them with ranged/magic.
      >how can i improve my stamina so i can run longer, the walking is excruciatingly slow
      The only thing that helps with that is having a lower carry weight. Running in armour rapes your run energy but it lasts a lot longer naked. Agility (members only) makes it recover faster but the formula is so fricked it's questionable whether it actually works.

      >Am I fricking myself over by playing the free version
      Yes and no. OSRS is unique among MMOs for being an optimization puzzle with a massive amount of moving parts. It starts off simple with things like
      >Wait, why am I doing all of my smelting and smithing in Falador using the town's furnace and Doric's anvil?
      >I could be doing in my smelting in Falador, and the smithing all of my bars in Varrock where there's an anvil next to the bank
      but members gets quite complex. F2P is a good way to introduce you to this concept without giving you way, WAAAY too many variables to begin with.

      That said, members is the real meat of the game and boasts all of the best content for every skill, so if you get a feel for the game and you're enjoying it, there's no reason not to at least try members.

      ge, or the runecrafting skill or the easiest way is from a shop that sells them in bulk, one such shop is in varrock

      >Am I fricking myself over by playing the free version?
      no and it'll serve as a good test if you like the game for awhile

      >and more to this is it even worth starting OSRS in 2024 as a brand new player or am I wasting my time?
      its worth
      >but are their quest guides in game that help me without having to read "go southwest etc"
      the osrs wiki has full word guides that r easy to navigate, the ultrapiss easy way is to use a runelite client which highlights everything and gives directional arrows and descriptions right there in the game, though I advise you quest a few times without it to get a feel for how questing works
      >how do levels work?
      a monsters level references its combat level (like how your char has its combat level, you start out at level 3 combat) the combat level is dependant on your combat stats averaged through a formula u dont rly need to understand yet, just know that some monsters have a lot more defence even if they are a lower level or have a higher attack level so they hit more often or a higher str level so they hit harder

      >how can i improve my stamina
      agility skill, also there is weight reduction clothing, some of it is from agility but all of it is members, energy potions also work (the basic ones are f2p)

        You are honestly not wrong saying this about gacha games. It is a proven statistical fact that only 10% of players in games with microtransaction/gacha spend money on them and yet those games make TONS of money, proving that the people that spend money on them straight up have problem gambling issues or have other mental health issues that are taken advantage of by the game.

          Yeah. I can understand why someone might feel that way about people who play MMOs, but to me MMOs still had something unique about them that other games couldn't offer at the time, and they were really an impressive product of it's time and showed just how advanced technology was getting.

          With gacha games I just don't see it, maybe it's because I didn't grow up with them but they're such low effort made games shat out like shovelware, every time I've ever tried a game with a gacha system I found myself asking if it was made by pajeets or some small team of asiatics. So many of them are literally just jrpgs but worse, and none of them are as good as any jrpg in any way shape or form. There's nothing impressive about these gacha games, none of them are actually good games even looking at them objectively alongside other games. They don't do anything different than other games besides demand money for power.

          It's actually insane to me that game devs figured out they can churn out games with far lower quality than shit I was playing on a gameboy advance but with an expensive catch, and that people will actually pay for it. When it comes to shit like runescape I never played it much as a kid, but I did play other MMOs and always heard/read about runescape, so I'm a bit biased and can see why the appeal is still there for some.

            Gacha games abuse a lot of concepts of human psychology to create addicts out of stupid people. They're handheld casinos made for millennials and zoomers.
            After mobile took over as the main platform around 2010-2015, mainstream gaming went to absolute shit.
            We always had some variation of this, remember farmville? There was no fricking game, it was build thing to build better thing with a social mechanic around it.

            I would say that was true between 2017 and 2019, because there were very few quests released, with a brief respite in 2020-2022 with the Elder God Wars quests, and 2023 had a consistent quest-release pacing after a reset which ended the Sixth Age, banished the gods and re-established the Edicts of Guthix, as well as adding "Kingdom-quests" which have been asked-for since 2009...
            However, 2024 has been awful for quests, or anything, really - we are expecting them to announce 2 new RuneScape-related games...

          Fail rates on jumps, the handholds MIGHT have been reverted but they made the whole of the underground pass a shitty instance and gutted the fail rates on all the obstacles instead of just doing the sensible thing of putting an agility requirement on the quest. Supposedly this is because according to their analytics department, things like underground pass caused thousands of players to quit, but in reality it was probably because they were having massive team growth at the time and a bunch of wannabee hotshots like Mod Gee needed to have their ego stroked by trying to expose as many people as possible to their butchery of such a nostalgic area and questline.

    I'm more glad to see that Brighter Shores is going to take a swing at a similar style of gameplay. Feels like there's a lot of untapped potential Runescape's formula has as this mix of point-and-click adventure, player-run economy, and dungeon delving that got lost as the game focused more and more on grind autism for OSRS and dead theme parks for RS3.

    If anything, it got me curious: is there any good RSPS out there that's already focused on the multiplayer and adventure aspect of the game? There's not a lot of proper documentation on the ones that pop up when searching for RSPS, aside from ones that just try to capture a certain era of Runescape and therefore just end up being the same "centrally authenticated grinding" that I'd like to avoid.

      Dunno, combat is pretty boring unless you run into some overpowered boss; Skilling gets samey as well unless progression is very rich in content. The only good stuff is the point-and-click adventure stuff(quests, unless you end up having to run back and forth with items) and areas to visit, but you wouldn't be able to keep churning out the new content at sufficient speed for a mmo game.

        >combat is pretty boring unless you run into some overpowered boss
        Well the point is untapped potential: Runescape's weakness system--crush/stab/slash, elemental vulnerability, the triangle, and so on--feels like it could be doing a lot more to have players of different builds characterize themselves by what tools they use to take down monsters of different weaknesses, especially working together as an adventurer party. The bigger enemies and their AoE attacks or ones based on line of sight and so on also feel strangely fun in a tile-based system, and the only thing I'd like is to see more of it.

        There's also the potential for slayer items to be expanded. Right now, it mostly comes down to "you have to have this item equipped to not die or to do the killing blow," but there could be so many different/obscure interactions with different items based on how the game's point-and-click-esque nature (one of the few examples is Insulated Boots vs Rune Draogns), or you don't even need to go that far: just be able to use Slayer items more actively in combat to do things like interrupt winding-up attacks or do extra damage if they're in their vulnerable animation.

    I want to play OSRS again, but I just don't know if it's worth it. I never beat Jad when I was younger and there is a metric frick ton more content, but I also don't want to deal with bots, but I also know that Jagex is actively developing the game, so that is a big plus for me. If I just casually have OSRS on my second monitor and doing what I need to in order to reach the end game, how long will it take? 6 months of at least 4 hours a day?

              >How long for fun stuff
              That's entirely dependent on your style of play, the type of account you have and exactly what you're after. The best sort of long term goal for a new player is working towards a quest cape. This usually takes like 8-12 months or so if you push yourself hard towards this. This unlocks all the raids, all the bosses, gives you a solid account with mid 70's in every stat. From here you can run early bosses, low level tombs of amascut (most recent raid), and stuff like the new perilous moon bosses released last week
              >Cheat at pvp
              Generally no. Because pvp is so niche of content these days but is also the most popular one from a viewer standpoint there's a lot of people that stream it and Jagex has a strange obsession with monitoring it for anti cheat over other stuff. The worst you'll see some occasional auto hotkey stuff for item/prayer switching but they're still very rare.
              last man standing is a fun battle royale minigame type thing that's good to introduce people to pvp. Expect to get absolutely trashed by people who are swapping between entire gear sets every other attack

              Unironically OSRS is one of the only places where its players feel largely self aware of how much of a soul sucking grind it is. I don’t play currently but I’ve played on and off for probably 20 or so years at this point, it’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t like RS why it’s addicting but it’s also that game where sometimes you get to a point on a Saturday afternoon and you’re like what the frick am I doing I’m falling asleep in my chair this is so mind numbing. It’s such a bizarre game in so many ways and yet it’s lightning in a bottle for that reason also. I’m rambling I just have a complex mostly love relationship with OSRS even if I’ve been out for a while now.

      Scurrius is a great introduction to the newer content. You're actually at a level where you could start with Barrows if you really wanted with Iban Blast, but the gear itself isn't relevant to you yet so don't fuss over that.
      The new Perilous Moons gear and content is also in the vein of Scurrius in that it's lower level and serves as an introduction to the sweatier mechanics which being rewarding for mid-game players.
      In general Jagex as been pretty good recently about introducing plenty of early/mid game content which I like.

        Ah, I might at least try Perilous Moons then. I'd heard it was lower level but it's hard to find much info on how low specifically this early on.

    I know they're revamping skills but OSRS would be better if they made the IM grind less extremely annoying. Every skill needs a 200-300k xp/hour method that isn't locked behind 500 hours of grinding.

    For example getting crafting requirements on IM sucks and that combined with other grinds gave me RSI. The main game is just not fun once you hit end game, you just raid constantly trying to hit a big drop table, and each new gear upgrade is like 100m+ gp away. The best way to enjoy the game is IM but the grind can be sickening at times.

    I'll usually launch Runescape after a year or two of not even thinking about it, because the atmosphere is just that intoxicating for the time that you play. Something about the sheer simplicity, the soundfont, the monotony of grinding, in theory this is all garbage but it's just enjoyable to partake in.
    I'm really glad RS has been around for as long as it has, and that OSRS itself came out as it's own thing after the changes resulting in RS3. I just wanted to spill my heart about one of the few things left that I love in this world.

        Why is that? I've finished all the other grandmaster quests and am about to get into DT2, been constantly putting it off since the fights seem much harder compared to the other grandmasters

          The story was super intriguing and takes you to a bunch of places in the game that you thought had no more content to offer. The boss fights are honestly really engaging and fun to learn, even vardorvis who absolutely fricked me.
          I put it off for a long time, too, but took a few days to work through oarys of the quest at a time and it was really fun.

      That's only for "no-honour" pking where you're trying to hit around the enemy's protection prayers. 99.9% of combat in the game is click monster and wait for it to die.

      They are doing something, but this game is ridiculously easy to bot, and Jagex is not one of the best in antibotting and customer support so bots will always be a major issue in this game. I play ironmeme partly because the economy is always fricked by botting.

    OSRS is such a great fricking concept. It's the only UO successor so it will always fill that sandbox niche. The world is packed with thousands of different ways to interact with items and your skills, almost every part of the map is utilized for some type of relevant play. It's also way faster and cheaper to create assets for it, and it still looks timeless.
