I left OSRS, I think? Or Runescape 3 about 10 years ago? I'm interested in OSRS, but I, like >>42467
would feel like I'm wasting my life, even at one hour a day. Still, I'm wasting my life now.
>"I have no future, no education, and I can't even leave my house, why am I wasting my time hoarding virtual crap in this pointless game", I need something a bit more engaging to suppress these feelings, for me I'd rather pace around in circles than play runescape.
Is pretty much how I feel to a T. I have more concerns though. It just doesn't feel "right" to play a game where you can literally get 99 everything. If you max everything, or have a lot of players maxing everything, a lot of items you can make are pretty useless. It's been 10 years, but I do remember leaving when there was a grand exchange, and playing before it. I do like the grand exchange, but I can only imagine thousands of players making and selling things like rune bars, weapons, armor, etc. and the rune armor just being a thing everyone had. You'll not even need to find a player with a good enough skill level to make you armor since you can just go to the G.E. and get it for a pretty flat price. I know there's manipulation of prices, but rune armor and weapons are so plentiful, so why aren't they cheaper? It was like, 30k IIRC for some rune, but it's not like many people can't craft it, mine it, etc. I do want to play, but if I did, I would only limit myself to an hour and just never talk to anyone. I might just either make everything from scratch or just use the G.E. to make a profit. Both are fun. I want to make weapons, armor, and arrows.
If I do join the wizclan by starting to play, which is doubtful, I'll sell weapons and armor for cheaper to clanmates. I probably won't be a member either, so members basically will have no use for me. IIRC, there was armor you couldn't craft, so any smithing seems absolutely useless for higher levels. Most skills feel impractical other than for making money anyways.
