The days of returning home from school and getting on our shared computer OSRS Gold, and later our own computers but leaving the bedroom doors wide open to shouting strategies and plead for gold, were some of the best memories I experienced growing up.
I’ve been sporadic about keeping up with RuneScape in the past to make sure my account from 2005 remained intact. However, it wasn’t until two months ago that I received a call from a good friend from my Gamer Squad*, which simply read, “I want to play runescape” which led me back on my quest to Gielinor.
Like any good MMO, the objective in RuneScape differs depending on the player. Maybe you want to complete every single one of the more than 200 quests to solidify your Legendary Hero status. Perhaps you’re looking to learn each of those 28 abilities to earn the illustrious Skill Mastery cape. Perhaps you’d like to earn billions from flipping goods at The Grand Exchanges.
It’s possible to be an asshole and kill characters in the open You could also be a hunter. It’s not even talking about the mini-games, events around the world, duel, and holidays. Naturally, the event is huge. It’s apparent Jagex has not been slow in from updating Gielinor. There’s plenty of new shit, the latest being RuneScape Mobile, which launches the 17th of June.
It was overwhelming to return to the RuneScape Grand Exchange and see people with swords and armor that seemed to make use of god-killing power to destroy my old, gold-trimmed dragon armor and the abyssal whip (that’d be awesome if you were playing back in my time, kiddos).
Even the menus were different and the menus were different, but it turned out the kind folks at Jagex provided a wide range of help for old players, including a legacy menu mode. In a further nod to past gamer, I ecstatic to find out that when I went to Lumbridge and spoke to Hans buy osrs account, an iconic NPC from the beginning, I could get him to reward me with a five-, 10–, or 15-year veteran cape. The cape with 15 years on it is a sight to see, it’s got fire burning in the at the bottom.
