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

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

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.

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.

I finished all of the quests in f2p OSRS at combat level 49. Elvarg was really hard to beat and I almost died until I finally hit the final strike on her. It was a legendary battle that I probably won't forget.

What's the best way to make money smelting in osrs? I remember when I started playing again I'd just mine silver for age, smelt it into bars, and sell it on the exchange. Made some decent coin but there has to be a quicker way.

>What's the best way to make money smelting in osrs?
not him but pretty much the only way to make money through smithing is by making cannon balls, although you can also make money by smelting iron ore while wearing a ring of forging(lasts for 5 inventories of ore) but it's not much profit

 No.52885

>>52873
Sorry to hear about your ban. You could try to contact Jagex support through Twitter, and attempt to appeal the ban, although they are notoriously unreliable.


>>52874
Smelting bars through the Blast Furnace would be the best way to make money, although I still wouldn't recommend Smithing for GP.

Steel bars make around 900k gp/hr, and Adamant/Rune is around 1m/hr. You will need a coal bag for this method, and having full graceful helps a lot.

At 99 you can smith Rune 2h's/platelegs/plateskirts for around 450k gp/hr. The method is moderately AFK, and a decent choice if you care about post-99 XP.

I wouldn't suggest making cannonballs. Even though it's very AFK, it's under 200k gp/hr, which would take over 20 hours just to cover your bond price.

But in your opinions, what's the best way to make gp?

 No.52898

in f2p crafting ruby necklaces is good money, in p2p I think agility might be the best money maker, trading in marks of grace for crystals and selling the crystals

 No.52899

Without a doubt, by far the best way to make money would be to play alts. Although it can be intimidating for a lot of newer players to play on multiple accounts, it essentially makes earning GP '0-time', since you are always passively earning money.

Some common alt examples would be: Motherlode mine, Amethyst, Sacred eel, Wyvern, Gargoyle, Brutal black dragon, Rune dragon, Vyrewatch. Out of all these examples, I'd probably suggest Vyrewatches, since the stat/gear requirements aren't too high, and you make around 650k gp/hr for 10 minutes of AFK.

Running supplies for other players such as pure essence or bones can make you upwards of 8m gp/hr, although this is fairly click intensive, and you have to be good at the game. You can even do this in free-to-play for around 5-8m/ gp/hr.

If you really don't want to play alts, then I'd suggest killing bosses such as Vorkath/Zulrah/Hydra/Nightmare, GWD, doing Chambers of Xeric/Theatre of Blood, or the Gauntlet/Corrupted Gauntlet.

The only skills that make decent money while still being trained efficiently would be Hunter (catching Red/Black chinchompas), or the Hallowed Sepulchre with 92+ Agility.

Is Barrows still up there in terms of stats in RSC? I remember in regular RS it was all obsolete by 2015. I know that helmet you have is the best

Dragon Baxe, Abyssal Whip, and Verrack's Flail were the only three weapons used by anyone over lvl 80. It's scary to think what kind of OP stuff they added since.

I got membership for one year. Now after doing all the f2p quests and getting all the f2p music I have all of the membership quests, miniquests, etc. to do. OSRS has so many quests and I have been noting all the quests that I found boring and disappointing. I'm doing questing whenever I log in. I took a week hiatus and have been questing for two days now. I still have many to do.

I have no money and I'm only combat level 55 and yet I have enough skills to do the novice quests. Once I'm done with them I'll start powerleveling for better quests. I thought I was weak for these quests but apparently I can kill certain enemies that are almost twice my combat level. I just finished the arena quest and I safespotted general Khazard with no problems at all. My magic is only 39. My ranged is 1.

I am hoping to complete most of my quests and find most music tracks by the end of the year. I'm not sure how possible it would be with such steep skill requirements.

It's really amazing imo just how much content they've managed to include in such a simple game. It's been ages since I've had membership or played a lot, but I still remember spending hours on all the little quests and dialogue and just exploring the different lands, finding out where I could go without getting killed. I hear they're still adding stuff too.

Man I should get back into this.

Holy snap I've been trying to get a few music tracks and it seems I need to continue trekking the world for more tracks. With more coverage comes more interesting NPCs. I just saw an NPC called Wesley who was a reference to Mr. Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I expect to read so much and talk to so many NPCs. The world is vast and it will take many days and night to complete the overworld music list. I will continue doing that and more quests to thin everything out.

There are so many red quests and blacked out tracks. It's going to impact my OCD. I must do it all.

I never played this game and I was thinking of starting Old School but only F2P. Is it worth my time or is paying better for a better experience? I ask this because I'm poor and even if I had money I'm against paying for extra content. Thanks

 No.53025

>>53024
Play the free quests, train on the F2P hotspots with F2P equipment. If you find yourself wanting more after finishing Dragon Slayer, then buy a month or two of Membership. OSRS is a small client so there's really nothing to lose. Membership more than triples the size of the map accessible, but it doesn't really add an extremely different mechanics.

Play f2p to get a feel for the game, and if you're still having fun after finishing up most of the quests, try out membership for a month. It's basically just (a lot) more of the same.
