Any runescape players, in particular OldSchool players around?

Just curious what others think of the game, or what you're up to. I've been working on an account thats 2.1k total levels now and the game is a lil stale, I've never really dabbled in bossing or pvp and I'm mainly just an afker and skiller. Considering making an ironman or something

For the past few months I have been playing on a private server called vidyascape. I left osrs because I didn't like the direction the game was taking. I feel like the art direction and gameplay is deviating from the original character of the game and detracting from its authenticity with every new update. I don't want act like a shill for the private server here, but I do want to share my discovery because I think it could be appreciated by wizzies who are equally disappointed by the current state of osrs.

Vidyascape is a server created on 4chan's /v/ board in 2014. It offers a 2007 experience, meaning no post-2007 or redditscape content (except for things like ironman accounts and gilded armour). Notable server differences are inf. run energy and double xp (I dont like the latter but oh well). It also has no grand exchange, which is great imho. What it does have is regular updates, many quests (somewhere around 170 qp) and a ~30 active players during peak hours.


What I like about it the most is that the userbase comprises almost entirely of imageboard users and this acts like a natural normalfag deterrent. Sure you might get the obnoxious 4chan type here and there, but most of these guys stick to the osrs generals.

I wish more wizards would play there so I could have some company.

I tried vscape years ago. Aside from the fact that I kind of outgrew the stat grinding (it seemed so boring to me doing it again, idk how I thought it was fun as a kid), it was just so empty. The world felt pretty lifeless to me without the large population legit runescape had/has.

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.

 No.46673

>>46646
The reason why rune items remain expensive despite the immense supply is that their price is tied to their alch value. Also as you said jagex can artificially fix item prices in the GE.

I haven't touched that shit since then, and I don't think I will, just because of how furious it gets me thinking about the fun that was robbed from me 10 years ago.

Same thing happened to me, anon. I got banned for third party macros or whatever the ban message said. It happened when I was trying to log in after being disconnected and clicking the log in really fast. My laptop also has a touch screen that I hadn't disabled and maybe I bumped it, prompting an "illegal" input or something. I have no clue what I did wrong. I can't appeal it without making a god damn Twitter account, which I refuse to do. Fuck that website, fuck Jagex, fuck this game.

It's weird that you got banned then especially since you were high lvl. I see obvious lvl 3 bots with rune axes and gibberish names constantly mining shit everyday and nothing seems to get done.

anyone doing bond giveaways? Im sick of power leveling for days i want to play the full experience

 No.51142

I now play OSRS. I'm level 9 though, but I'm trying to make steel armor before I start leveling. Since armor and weapons take such a low skill to wield, I'm trying to increase my smithing and mining levels before I start leveling combat skills. I do this even though you can't craft dragon stuff, thus making smithing useless imo.

Mining is useless, woodcutting is useless, firemaking is useless, etc. If you can literally make money from selling raw materials and killing, I might consider all skills useless. Most likely not because it's probably not much of a money maker anyways, but I'll test that out when I'm done with this account.

I have a few things I want to accomplish. I want to find all the music, go to every place, do mostly everything (including member's stuff), talk to most NPCs, learn the lore a bit better, etc. To me, grinding is useless. Once I've done all the unique things, not including the clue scrolls since there are thousands of them, then I'm done. Game's been beaten. Nothing's left. After that, I hope to restart a new account and just do a combat-orientated build. I want to see how far I can go with just killing things. I can trade, but I only get things through killing, selling drops, and buying new items. It'll be fun.

I don't intend to do ironman because rune crafting and how wasteful it is. You can sell items to the shop for pennies compared to what they're worth, buy stuff that's more expensive, etc. I don't like being screwed over financially, so I just do my own thing, make my own stuff, and if I'm leveling rune crafting or something else tedious, I'll try to make a profit + get experience. I hear mind runes give a profit for F2P users.

Been playing this for a while. Got quest cape the other day but I'm completely stuck for money making. Upto now I've just been doing 2 or 3 herb runs a day which paid for everything but now I need around 15-20 mil to get my range and magic up in an efficient manner and to upgrade my house so I can do solo pvm in a somewhat efficient manner.

I managed to find most F2P music except for a few ones that require skills. I'm missing 13 tracks without holidays included,. I also need to finish the quests that require killing higher level NPCs and get their music tracks. For that, I'll need to craft better weapons and train. Finally, I need to go into the various guilds and altars for F2P to finish my music collection. I'm level 16 right now. After I'm done with my document, I'll go over to the wiki and double check if I have all the f2p music.

I'll probably go to members when I'm done with exploring F2P and a high enough level to start doing those quests.

Mostly just AFK a skill when new content comes out but haven't really played since they removed 6 hour Guthans in the NMZ, but I'll probably come back since I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBocc-RuRpg the other day in my recommendations list.
Might have another go at lava eels too if the AFK NMZ doesn't work or whatever

The game takes a long time. You can slow it to a crawl if you do dragons without void and stuff, I legit seen disabled people use bone c'bow on blues non ironman you will never max with dumb strategy like that, kill chaos druids with that dude.. and build a bank… The RWT aspect is nice too, if i get igg it's real world cash and concept of pjing something worth $300 is exciting.
I am thinking of playing wow instead, honestly. In game I am getting full void. I have 1.4m xp to go to a fishing 99.

Tried to recapture the magic of RS2 recently by getting back into OSRS, but it just made me feel even more depressed. The worlds are much quieter, feels like everyone is taking their efficiency srsly and doing everything alone feels a lot more pointless, as opposed to alongside a bunch of other random idiots who have no idea what they're doing. I had fun playing leagues - at least until I hit 45k points and the only tasks I had left were either super grindy or RNG based.

Maybe I should try RS3, apparently it's different enough that it'll feel like a new experience, as opposed to trying to recreate an old one.

 No.52399

to me a lot of the osrs updates have basically fucked the game over similarly to what originally happened transitioning into rs3. member retards basically just vote to add easier grinds which shits on people who slogged through the old methods.

>Maybe I should try RS3, apparently it's different enough that it'll feel like a new experience, as opposed to trying to recreate an old one.

Don't go in expecting to either relive the past or experience an extension of the Runescape you loved.

It's the world you already know the ins-and-outs of, but with a bunch of junk dizzily tossed about, all drawn in such a flamboyant style as to draw eyes from kids. It's no longer a medieval role playing game but rather it is an interactive casino and minigame environment. A skill can be maxed in a matter of days of casual play even on Hardcore Ironman using no XP buffs. Nobody communicates in-game. All trades are done through the GE and all chat is done through Discords and private messages. Nobody even gathers around the old fishing and woodcutting zones because now people just buy materials that seem to be in infinite supply on the GE.

Look for private RS2 servers if you want a true community-fueled RS experience, but even that's a stretch.

Yeah, that seems to reflect my experience of playing RS3 for approximately an hour. Got assaulted by pop-ups and Disneyesque graphics, so I didn't stay logged in for too long. Was kinda interesting just running around the map and comparing RS3 versions of buildings and NPCs to the RS2 versions though.

Like what exactly? I liked a lot of the additional content they added since last time I played, especially the landmasses like Zeah and Volcanic Island. Wish they focused on adding more stuff like quests though, those were always my favourite part of the game.
