Anyone played back in the good ole days? get in here.
ITT: RS nostalgia general
Made an account in 2002 but lost interest before I even started, got back into it in 2009.. played until earlier this month when Jagex permanently muted all my accounts because I fucked up.
extreme old fag reporting
i never played rs2 (well if you consider botting 20 characters to pick flax, sell for gp, then sell gold, then ok, but never played rs2 or newer for the game play)
Spent so much time on this game during my middle school years.
Everytime I see a screenshot or something I get that blast of nostalgia and it makes me want to play again.
I've relapsed many times but I think i've finally slayed the dark time consuming beast that is runescape.
Dug up this screenshot I took back in early 2013, best proof I've got of that account. Game is shit nowadays, community is even worse. The jews at Jagex are just trying to make the game something its not.
>tfw runescape is nothing but microtransactionscape now
>tfw there will never be any hope at redemtion because two jews own 55% of jagex
2006 fag here. I went back to the game recently to see if it's any good, but it's not. Like, they made minor graphics updates after 10 years and it's filled with cancer
>implying it was ever good to begin with
Probably not but I had good times back in the day.
>never forget Lf GF
>got gold trimmed black armor
>thought it was the best armor
>mfw it was shit
i remember back with the stronghold of security, as a way to farm money, i made 20 or so accounts and went and got all the prizes for money and then transfered all of it onto my original account. made like 200k in about 15 hours. good times, good times. man i also remember going to whatever that white city was on a trading world. that shit was crazy, colored rainbow text everywhere
man i also remember my friend getting tons of cash in the drop party place in the white town, and he gave me a whip! shit was so cash, i was mad because you couldnt train str though. so i sold it, and bought a bunch of dd++'s and some shit, then the GE caame in and i sold them for a bunch of profit, but then they added trade limit and i was like, nah.
>win gold trimmed black armor
>going to clan wars feeling like a badass
>rev ghost kills me and I lose my armor
Raged so fucking hard, I punched my computer screen
I played from 2001 to late 2005 with a bunch of friends. After that point, we all just got off the ride and never looked back. Had some great times in that game...
Dude, I remember that place. Shit was always off the hook. Always someone trying to pawn off willow logs and shit.
>200k in 15 hours
nigger what are you doing
it was like 2006-2007, when i started and that was months in. i remember when i first started playing id kill shit by lumbridge all day goblins, out behind the castle, and i wandered to far and got killed by some lvl 10 with a mace, think it was a guard or some shit. idk. i was pissed.
and yeah, i was not very savvy when it came to cash. i mainly had a bunch of "get rich quick" schemes, which involved stupid shit that never worked.
>tfw most cash you ever had was 3m
i know those feels, i fucking hated that thing.
hahah yeah, right next to tedgeville. god them was some good times, i also used to play that one shade game a TON out in the swamp place. so much nostalgia.
suk a cok cunt
i honestly found alot of the unpopular updates on runescape to be quite good
but how ever in every mmorpg i hate pking mainly because im never any good at it xD
the trade limit on runescape
removing pking from the wilderness
i dont find these to honestly be bad updates
like if people honestly want to be butthurt that your crappy pvp is being destroyed then fine
there are thousands of things to do in runescape other then pointlessly run around and killing everyone
so serial killer status
eoc mostly boosted pvm experience and lowered pvp
i was never effected by eoc but more of enjoyed the shit out of it
legacy is crap tho
why not just make momentum only worlds instead of reverting back to the old crappy interface
when jagex put back free trade in game i was depressed because merching clans fucked up the prices
Back in '04, I remember trying to get all my non-combat levels way the fuck high. I was only like level 30 and total level was over 1000 with all the shit I did. I ended up getting rich because of it, and I had literally atleast 5 people working for me, mining coal for 150gp each. I would then buy it from them, go to a full world, and just stand there spamming "flash2:wave2:SELLING COAL 200EA!" and it sold like fucking hotcakes.
Before I realized I was making millions off of it, and everytime someone sold me coal at 150 I would just save it at the bank and eventually make fortunes.
Those were the days, huh. When a level 30 was running around with gold trimmed armor on mage robes and whatever. Attention whoring success.
Old fag here, made most of my cash by tele grabbing the blue party hat during the cutscene with the bank robbery thing, now I began dicing before it was banned and made billions but got bored over how much cash I made
yeah microtransaction scape?
first of all this comment gives me cancer as every person who comments on microtransactions ruined runescape
first of all you are retarded
the max profit for basics is 600k-3m an hour without level 95 prayer and herblore
the only buyable thing that effects the game is bonds
1 bond = 6m period
for the fact that 6m doing frost dragons is honestly 2 hours of this work
5 bonds = 30m
this is 10 hours of frost dragons working 10 hours a day at 200 bones per hour
gotta be shitting me by the fact something this worthless effects the game
its only really when you spend 1000$ that it will actually do anything
bonds are a scam and soloman is honestly garbage and doesnt effect the game in any way
as for treasure crap
i dont see how the worlds most basic bull shit items actually effects any gameplay
treasure = 1k spins before reaching anything remotely good
2004fag representing. Hard to believe it's been 10 years. Current Runescape is shit, that's why you do 2007 Scape. Not a shit load of people, but it's still pretty nice. I still play.
If you want, add me, username is: Auld
2001 Fag here. spent too much time playing in middle school and would scrounge up the money for the membership each month to share with a buddy.
haventbplayed since then cause d2 master race
Just before I gave up, I made around 20 mill a day from buying, fixing, and selling barrows for profit.
was a fucking revelation. i couldn't keep it to myself. all of a sudden, I wasn't buying any, anymore.
I think I quit after that. Still have a few hundred mill in gear
>>559814859i had 99 woodcutting,cooking,prayer,farming,herbalore and crafting,
>tfw everyone is bitching about new rs and Eoc
>tfw you can play oldfag runescape if you're a member
Silly faggots read a book
the mods admited to treasure not giving remotely any good exp or gold
as for bonds 6m per bond is garbage
2hours of work vs 5$ for 6m
im pretty sure just because jagex made real life trading legal for jagex owned bonds wont make any diffrence because of the fact oh idk real world traders that honestly did the same shit but for less?
Just putting this out there, if your a skiller/edater lumby castle w1 dweller fag you are shit tier
>the mods admited to treasure not giving remotely any good exp or gold
top kek. everyone here knows that the xp, xp boosting items, and items in general introduced into the game each day from spins is indeed significant.
as far as bonds go, this is also significant. they are allowing players to spend money to buy gp. if i wanted to, i could buy a phat on a fresh account just by buying a fuckton of bonds and selling them. how is that not a bad thing?
yeah like you could actually aford to buy a party hat with bonds
1.2b is the lowest party hat
10 bonds is 60m
are you to claim that you have actually 1000$ to create a new account with a fresh partyhat?
many people have spent more than $4k on spins alone. imagine what they would spend on bonds for christs sake. when th was sof, you could spend $200 a day. as far as i can tell, theres no limit on how many bonds you can buy in a day
for the game to actually be effected by this everyone would have to buy bonds and spins at that amount
a few select people who are honestly rich as shit and have money to throw at jagex doesnt ruin the game
but what about the countless people who just buy one or two or five bonds? theyre still buying gold all the same. they can buy a 99, or buy a full GWD set without having to work for it at all
Indeed, buying like 4 bonds is enough to kick start a med level player if you have a job. work like one day and spend all that pay on bonds and you will have saved weeks trying to make gp through the game unless you et extremely lucky
They're not buying gold, though. The gold still has to come from the game. If you could exchange five bucks for x amount of gp straight from Jagex, that'd be one thing. But selling a bond to another player for gp is another. That gp came from the same places that all other gp does; monster drops and alchemy.
bots have effected the game 200x worse then the pointless 6m profit bonds have
these more benifit the game rather then destroy it
there will be an actual problem when the raw mats are below a reasonable price and herblore is 120m to 99
as for right now this honestly doesnt actually effect anything and the fact that before when you did the same thing against the terms of service you got 200x more then what bonds are giving you at the same price
wouldnt at that time of runescape be more effected? this part of real world trading is just pointless spending 5$ on 2 hours of frost dragons or 1 hour of bandos gwd, it is more like giving newfags a small boost rather then setting them to quit like most people who dont have the patients to grind for 10 hours
even then it still counteracts gold farming bots and its a very perfect way of doing it
ever see any bots on runescape lately?
remember before bonds how populated it was?
how is that not buying gold? if i bought it from a farming site, that gold also came from inside the game. bonds are just a very clever form of rwt that holds a dual function as a moneysink
my concern is not their effect on the joke of an economy, my point is that they are what makes runescape pay to win. if i want to max out buyables without doing work for my gp, i can literally just buy the fucking gold to do so.
Your both right,
bot swarms before the trade limit was introduced were worser than the affect bonds have had on the economy = bad
Jagex dun goofd by giving into temptation and releasing a form of pay to win = bad
jagex didnt give into temptation: p2w was the objective
55% of jagex owned by insight venture partners, and the two investors they have on the jagex board of directs are (no fucking shit) jews
2009 newfag reporting in, I joined when a couple kids from elementary recommended it and I later and sold my lvl 46 for eight bucks and ending up stealing it back
I got a membership in summer of 2013 after like 4 years of f2ping, felt good man
poorfag also, I only had 3m
i kind of remember just watching friends play it when you were able to get rubber chickens and yoyo's, but im not quite sure if i had the ring you got from the easter event on 2006 myself
definitely was in at 2007, fun times, fun times
>>559822434Look who it is again, ID Heaven. I'm fed up with your shit faggot. The other day when you called me a newfag, yeah, haven't forgotten about that yet.Fuck you I've been on here for months and probably get on here more than you anyways. Don't you know that you make yourself look like a newfag when you call others newfag?Just because you learned how to hack your name and change it to "Heaven" does not give you the right to disrespect anyone at any given time.
I played from 2004 to 2008. Quit with over 400mil in my acc when the game went to shit. The so called "HD" graphics updates combined with getting rid of free trade/the wildy gutted PKers ability to play.
I then played a bit of 2007scape when it came out, got a 60 atk 80 str 1 def 1 prayer 95 ranged pure, like level 76 or some shit with a 50m cashstack. It got boring because all my old friends from RS didn't come back, so I quit that too.
>Quit in 2011 because my computer couldn't handle it
>116 Level character with 9 skill capes
>Cooking was my first cape
>Wanted to get 200 mil cooking XP but only got half way there before computer went to shit
>General status in Ability44's (now WhatsUpWithRS) clan chat
>Watch his infrequent vids for nostalgia purposes
>Probably join back on when I build my god computer/media server
I started playing back in 2005 when I was 13 but stopped playing in 2011 after they changed the game too much. When I heard that they were bringing back the 2007 servers I came back and starting playing again until just recently. I've tried RS3 but I couldn't fucking figure out how to play.
I can't tell if you're trying to portray yourself as the Wise Old Man, or if you're just trying to look cool, but actually looking retarded. You can't telegram that party hat you fuck up
Anyway, 2004 fag here, come to say that I still play to this day.
EoC is single-handed lay the best update to ever be introduced into Runescape. No more of that click and wait bullshit that stayed around for 13 god awful fucking years
But still, I loved the shot out of RS back in 04 to 07 when I stopped playing for a good 5 years. Got back in when EoC was added, and I remember thinking:
"God damn is this combat actually entertaining. Man, I can train slayer AND have fun now! Or I could boss and not have to ask the entire time! Damn, thank you jagex.
Old combat sucks. New legacy combat is worse. The micro transaction shit is awful, and I hate Jewfex for it, but I'll continue to play.
Just oldfag. Early 2006. I only didn't play much, just played it because my friends did at the time. Still got some treasured memories though
Forerunner here. The game has turned into absolute trash. I quit a few years ago but go on once a month for a couple of hours still a d for the holiday events. I have all of the extreme rates like the half wine jug and hween masks and Santa and one phat, easter egg, etc. I get on and see a million microtransactions and botting everywhere. I may just sell my account or give away to a close friend
2005 faggots. its been a while since i donned the ol' quest cape but i might pay for membership again to play oldschool when i find a job.
(cut me some slack i was in 8th grade)
Played since '05. On and off but never post EoC. My friend is '06 fag and is maxed now. Pretty impressive he stuck with it, but even he acknowledges it's shit, especially after divination.
Now I play OSRS sometimes. Pretty alright I suppose.
I play 07 now, made a .html page to multi task with it
lmfao just found this from when i was tryign to find new places to hang otu with my boys in rs 07
B0aty's One Man Army series is get for nostalgia
He's playing single player runescape. Grinds for a shitload of hours or 50k p ess and other mats.
Anyone claiming to be foreurnner is a sack of shit, devious mud only released to like 20 people for 1 week only and i highly fucking doubt youd be one of them who knew andrew gower personally, fuck off lying cancerous scum.
A single tear ran down my cheek reading this thread and as it progressed, I cried harder. I remember literally running home from school just to play this game. I remember the old graphics, the old hitpoint system, and the old combat system. I may have started late by some peoples standards, but it is still a part of my childhood, hell, part of my life. My heart was truly broken when Jagex changed the graphics, and even more each time they tacked on another cheesy skill. I no longer play it anymore, but runescape, you were the love of my life for a 7 year span of my life. I didn't no life just to get a 99, i never finished all the quests I just generally had a good time while playing this game. I will never forget you runescape, never.....?

Still a player and I'm kind of moved by all you oldfags and your stories
I really hope I look back on this game like you guys do, it honestly has been a big part of my life and I love it
still want to get fucking 92 prayer for soulsplit tho goddamnit

>a month of qbd goes by and you now have 1.68b
>seriously easy to earn gold on this
>invest in maxed out gear with a p-hat

>work on this and youll be pro
I can't fucking kill goddamn QBD 'cause I'm bad and I hate doing group activities which includes Dung so I only solo it for shit xp/hr. Gonna take ages to get to 85.
I know QBD is solo, but every time I try I just can't kill her ass. Solo DG is slow as fuck and boring, too.
Seriously, fuck activities that force you to have groups or like DG where you just get shit-tier xp solo compared to a group. W73 here.
played classic very briefly when i was younger.
remember those online game sites you used to go to with hyperlinks to various flash games, yeah found it on there.
then later started playing normal rs not sure what it was called then i remember rs2 coming out? or some big update , anyway quit well before they removed wildy.
I got lucky after they added Abyssal wand/orb 'cause I had the Slayer level to kill Abbys and a mask that guarantees Abby tasks. Made ~25M from the drops because they were selling for so high soon after release and spent that on 92 Prayer.
ended up getting a mask and I do a forced task every day, I usually make around a mil each one?
Got 2 orbs within 5 minutes the other day, sold for less than a mil though :/ and getting to 92 is going to cost 90-170m
you need overloads to
soulsplit doesnt do shit when facing bosses without the correct defence
alot of them hit 2-5k on you at lvl 99
somehow with overloads tho you avoid such crap
I know, right. The only way to make money is to kill QBD/KK/Vorago and such. To do that, you NEED 95 Pray and 96 Herb and for two of them, you need a fucking team. So you need to make bank so you can get Pray and Herb so you can make bank. Fuck.
actually you need 130~140m for prayer
and 250~300m for herblore
how ever this is for 92 prayer and 99 herblore
xD just follow my guide and youll be soloing bosses in no time
do the dung because its highly worth it even if its boring as fuck just pull through it. i mean hell any old fags think dung is slow and boring, remember woodcutting/mining
any older fags from classic
remember this in general
Damn time flies, i played when i was 13 in 2003, use to mainly scam people and had so many techniques for scamming.
now im 24 and turned out to be a criminal, i now see where it all started
Gimme a guide for solo Dung training, mang.
Got two accounts, ones maxed(combat/prayer/herb) with 99 slayer (greatest runescape achievement)
The other one is 99 all combats including prayer but 95 defense.
I quit when dungeoneering was a thing. I hated the concept, I hated doing dungeons, and having to do it for the new weapons made me quit. I eventually came back and botted myself high enough dung but then EoC came out and I quit again. Never looked back.
Sold 800m to a dude I met in college for like 250 bucks
newfag. Still have my christmas robes/carrot. Got into the game in like 07', lost interest within a few months, come back in 2011/12, start red portal luring, 100's of mills. Then mother of fuck EOC hit, quit since then. I miss the good old days.
remember the scam where you got on ventrilo with a group of people and gave the person a noted black plateskirt instead of a veracs plateskirt
and you get to hear a 15 yearold kid cry like he is 2
say I do like 20-27 right, then I can't progress because I haven't unlocked 28
that's when I reset right? and when I do reset, should I just do 27 again and then reset after every time until I've unlocked 28? Or should I then go start back at 20 or something and go up?
Originalfag here, was addicted to RS for 8 years and played on average 5 hours a day (no social life as a kid i'm 19 now) i sold my accounts to some guy at highschool. Does anyone have any accounts they've had a chip at and they cbf playing anymore? I'm keen just to see what its like without starting over. If you do email me? I'll post deets if anyonea keen to be a /b/ro
you can rush the new floors you get if youd like
but after you get 30-40 only rush these floors because the previous ones are time and exp waste
if all the floors are complete do a reset
even if you dont have the new floor unlocked you can still reset and do them again but with extra exp do to prestige
started back around 2001-2002ish where r2h just came out and was selling for 1m gp varrock square, good times. didnt have nough money when the different pick axes came out, still sold a mith one for like 10x the price and felt like the king^^..also remember the sleeping bag which came and went, was pretty rad though
>is it cos oldfags and been playing forever or?
>play a lot, gain levels/knowledge
>new boss mentioned in BTS
>prepare for it
>dominate it when it releases
>sell everything new to richfags who just want to show the item off while it's rare
>rinse, repeat with every new boss
eoc only put a nail in the coffin for pking
if you are so closed minded that you leave runescape because 1/1000 things got changed and ruined
you dont belong in any mmorpg or videogame
Tell that to the people who fought for 07 scape/legacy mode, numbers don't lie a whole community voted to have the old combat style back that was going strong for 10years and was the flagship model of this game
eoc isnt even bad
200x better then that shit was before
it was only temptation between 1k people that actually wanted 07scape back
1k/30-40k daily at the time
half was honestly bots
1k people left runescape
the rest were bots and were just banned
runescape didnt die one bit
and rs07 is just simply oldfags returning or using 2 screens
people were saying this garbage when pking in the wilderness and free trade was removed
spouting off that everyone will leave and runescape will die
runescape has had the same member base for 8 years
factoring the massive amount of bots you would be silent when you hear that the cap of runescapes population was all bots and a fraction of real players
the only reason why it reached 500k+ people is because it was highly rigged
gotta be joking me that 500k people wanted this back yet if that was true why is 07scape not capped every day
and i do all the time
its pathetic because they still play the game and never look into the logic behind what eoc really is
the fact that they would even bring 07 scape and legacy is just for simple profit
mod mark knew damn well that with 07 scape and runescape3 and placing bonds inside of the game he would make tons of money from crossover gold clans
if eoc really bothers people then they should turn on momentum and sit there with stand still combat with little to no work
legacy is seriously just pointless
10 year cape in September.
EoC isn't necessarily shit, just turn momentum on and it basically just uses abilities for you, makes grinding slayer tasks easier.
Grand Exchange is great though, because fuck all those coloured text sellers next to the varrock bank where you'd get a stack of 120 peoples names when you go to trade with somebody
Also this one time some noob traded me adamant legs/body for my mith equivalent and helm. Killed so many cows to get defence 30, now I can make the same exp in 30 mins and you wonder how noobs can possibly play the game and get levels without quitting
exact reason I love eoc
didn't touch slayer until I discovered revolution, and at that time I already had 99 magic, so basically I could afk a whole task and grind through 10 tasks with no effort
my biggest highlight was defs scamming some kid for a hexhunter bow and dungeoneering in general. that skill was fucking awesome. getting 99 summoning was also bad ass
>Dat steel titan
fuck barb assault doe.
2006 here. oh god i remember playing this in school with my classmates when we got free time in the computer room,good times
back when you would screen shot at every level
Rubber Chicken fag reporting in.Pretty sure my account's been removed since I quit like 9 years ago. Shame, because I recently started playing the other jagex site "funorb". Funorb's "arcanists" is the first thing that started getting me to quit runescape.
still got my old folder saved from old hdd
Original fucking fag here.
I played Runescape when it was just a few weeks old. A friend of mine introduced me to the game.
I remember when Runescape was trying to be like an Ultima Online, when they had no wilderness whatsoever, everyone was able to attack one another in the middle of the road, people used to ambush or people on the way from Lumbridge to Varrock. They would tell you to drop your shit on the group and then they would kill you anyways. I remember being shit afraid when I walked in Varrock for the first time, and seeing all they people in steel and full bronze armor, knowing absolutely balls about the game, and thinking to myself that they people must be the pro players in Runescape.
Also when you killed someone, the guards would attack you, which was fucking bullshit. People started bitching about how unfair the game was, and then fucking Jagex caved in and Wilderness was implemented a few months later.
Couldn't remember the account I played all those years back early 2000's. Created an account a few months ago. Im probably amongst the tiny minority that has enjoyed playing again all these years later. More so that legacy is now available.
If EoC didn't fuck with armour and weapon stats, healing, prayers and rune costs for spells i still might be playing but they dropped the economy on its head along with everything else.
Change the combat system sure but pls don't fuck with everything else that made the game
It wasn't a glitch it was a word filter. If you put any "bad words" it would cause your text to change to "Cabbage!"
Super old fag reporting in. I played back when you could stand in front of doors and people couldn't open them. Wizards tower was the best trap to get people killed.
Anyone remember when the certificates got released? Well. Actually there's no report on this bug. But on the first day. Items such as, iron, coal, lobsters etc. You could just walk up to that npc that converts items for certi without having any items. This means that i have been able (with 3 friends) to massively stock certis without even having the items. They did a roll back but i've made so fucking many money.. it's unbelievable. FUCK RS2 .. RS:C ftw. They fucked up the game.

The best thing about runescape is that intelligence is in a major role in it, and it's easy to dominate PvP because it's full of fucking retards
But it wasn't only for bad words though. Cabbage overran your chat in the most retarded instances. It must have been a glitch on Jagex part because I remember asking for money for pies at the Varrock Castle, and I had a hard telling asking for a price because I kept saying cabbage. And it only happened to a select amount of people at a time. Some people weren't affected and were perfectly able to speak on the chat, and then few days later, they would affected with the cabbage shit.
Used to pk before wildy was taken
Then went to underground tunnels to get dragon hides.. With 90 range and a rune crossbow I could fill an inventory in 2 mins max for good $
Day I got ancients was the best ever.. So many mad people when I would freeze and run back to range..
Old fag reporting in.

Anyone remember the fucking retarded zombies and quest help?
Shit man, I remember the day when Santa Hats were released and people were selling them for 50,000 gp, then a few years later I come back to check on Runescape and people are selling them in unbelievable fucking prices, some netting over millions of gp.
