    NO MORE BOTTING/CHEATING TALK IN HERE
    DON NOT FLAME ABOUT HOW YOU DO NOT LIKE THIS GAME, NOBODY FUCKING CARES ABOUT YOUR OPINION

    This thread is aimed for fans to have a serious discussion in. If you hate this game, leave now. If you want to say this game is crap, fine. Just don't do it here.

    Info
    RuneScape is the online massive multiplayer Java game created by Jagex Ltd. It's played directly in your browser. The world is huge and there's a lot to do in the game. There's 24 skills to be trained, 30 minigames to be played with other players, 250 quests and many dungeons to explore.

    World map:
    http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/5...ember08oj4.jpg

    The main classes are Warrior, Ranger and Mage. You can be any of them at any time, there's no class you're bound to be when you first create your character.

    Quests
    The quests has really deep stories. There's no "go there, kill that, bring the loot back to me" quests like in many MMOs out there. The Jagex story writes put many hours into every quest to make it interesting and tell its own story. This is one of the many reasons I like this game.

    Skills
    There's many skills to be trained and many of them are really rewarding. For example I will take the Mining and Smithing skills. You can mine your ore in mines. The higher your mining level is the better ores you can mine. You take the ore to a furnace to melt it, then smith it into armor and weapons you can use or sell.

    Magic
    The game has three spellbooks.
    The mordern spellbook focuses on elemental spells to damage what you fight. It also contains a number of teleportation spells you make your way through the lands, but also spells to weaken your opponent.
    The ancient spellbook contains many extremely powerful spells. At level 94 magic you can cast the famous "Ice Barrage" spell, which deals a great ammount of damage to the target, and everything that's close to the target, and make them unable to move for a number of seconds.
    The Lunar spellbook focuses on all day life spells. There's spells for healing you, healing an ally, cure someone from poision, group teleportation and even spells for filling vials with water and baking a pie!

    Economy
    RuneScape's economy is interesting. Most trading is done between players, and not game controlled shops, so the game gets a very unique economic behavior (for a game). Prices of things goes up and down just like in the real world.

    Player Killing
    RuneScape had problems with real world trading. Thousands of bots were making in-game money and selling it for real money and completely destroying the RuneScape economy. Jagex tackled this problem by limiting the amount of wealth that could be given between two players. Killing players in the area called "Wilderness" made they drop their whole inventory and wealth could be transfered that way, so Jagex removed Player Killing from the game. PK-ing could then only be done in certain minigames.

    Many people complained about this and many stopped playing. Just recently they opened certain "PK Worlds" that allowed PK-ing in the whole area of certain worlds. The drops from the players are now generated based on how well a player killed the other, the difficulty of the battle, and what the stakes are.


    Graphics
    Many people complain about the graphics. I don't care much myself, but recently Jagex updated the graphics in their game. The textures and models now looks much better, and proper AA is now supported.

    WoW is making money off of gold farmers. A significant amount. Jagex, on the other hand, is not.

    Yeah and thats because WoW Is a game that even after you get the stuff you want you will keep playing because there is alot to do / its fun while on the other hand in Runescape you get the things you want and blow threw the cash then quit playing because your bored. I'm not trolling but just stating a fact.

    I'll buy gold in WoW and continue to play and mess around while in Runescape on the other hand you have to play a game where the dev's destroyed trading and then you have your 10 minutes of fun then want to leave. Runescape is like having sex with a prostitute.

    Seriously. I'm interested now, someone tell me. Do "Members" by stuff with real money so that theres no point in playing on any of the servers because they will always be OP?, it's been a loooooooooooong time.

    Runescape.. Good times.

    I remember quitting around 2 years ago when the Duel Arena got fucked. I figured that the wildy would be next and just quit.

    I'd happily return, but what is in the past must remain there.

    GWD, tormented demons, collecting secondary potion ingredients, or merchanting and flipping. Whatever your trying to buy is probably crashing due to 76k trick being nerfed.

    So I'd like to play this at my work, however I think the game is being blocked out by the connection.
    I remember there being a way around this but that was 3 years ago :sigh:

    Anyone know a way?

    I used to like Runescape, but that was a few years ago. The only reason I kept playing was the Wilderness. It was fun to log in every once in a while and go there and kill some players! It was so satisfying, and the wilderness system worked great! Untill they removed it... The players started being immature pricks and the game itself just turned to shit.

    EDIT:

    I admit it, it's pretty fun to be a member but being a free player just doesn't have anything to offer. Jagex removed every reason why free players should play.
