    Runescape

    Aw yis, that's right. Everyone's favourite childhood online game now has its own thread on RZ.

    I've been playing it on and off for probably 10 years now. I've been smashing it in the last two months or so after about 18 months off. Doubt this thread will get much traffic so at worst case I'll be documenting any progress I make on the two accounts I plan to play with.

    They've introduced a few different game modes over the last few years after a lowpoint in popularity. These various modes have proven to be successful and have boosted numbers to around 70-80k players a day.

    Normal - Known as Runecape 3 or RS3. The usual game mode, no restrictions, do what you want. Inside this though is two different combat systems, a new system called Evolution of Combat/EOC which uses different abilities, or the old 'legacy' system.
    Ironman - Total reliance on your skills. No player-to-player trading, no use of the Grand Exchange (a game-wide market area where you can buy/sell with no player interaction), no player vs player combat, most minigames are unplayable.
    Hardcore Ironman - Same as Ironman except you only have one life. Once you die, you're locked out of your account. As you reach certain milestones you have the chance to buy a life.
    Darkscape - Entire world is PVP combat, various safezones throughout. Different zones which exceed in difficulty.

    Oldschool Runescape/07Scape - Same as RS3 except everything is as it was during 2007, arguably the most popular era of Runescape. This mode was the result of a poll, with almost 450,000 people voting it in.
    07 Ironman - Same as RS3's version.
    Ultimate Ironman - Same as Ironman, except no use of a bank.
    Deadman Mode - Similar to Darkscape. A PVP world with limited safezones. If killed, you lose 25% exp in all skills (able to protect three) and you will lose the 28 most valuable items/stacks in your bank. You are able to use safety boxes to help protect a small amount of items. If you kill someone, you will recieve a key which ultimately gives access to the players 28 most valuable items. In saying that, a skull will appear above your head for 30 minutes. The timer will not tick down if you are standing still, and guards will auto-attack if you dare enter a safezone while still skulled. If skulled, those who kill you will not become skulled themselves.

    Enough gibberish tho, the accounts I'll be playing on are a RS3 account and an OSRS Ironman account.

    My RS3 account, Goodshirt. Roughly 8 years old. I haven't touched combat in a number of years now but am looking at getting all stats 80+.


    My Ironman, xGrouse. Roughly two hours old. I'm gonna be playing on this whenever I get bored of my main account. Goals are just to see how far I can get. No membership with this account tho, meaning some stats will be staying at 1.

    In. Actually bought a membership around April time, slowly got bored of the game again just a couple of months back.

    Jihad does Runescape, count me in.

    Im not sure myself. I think it is one of those things where I was born with a crop of awesome and then I have kind of watered the gardens, tended to the farm and created this farmable mass of fantastic brilliance. I have so much to give and share out but just not enough hours in the day to give it all out.

    Its hard sometimes

    I wanted to play 07scape but realised you couldn't transfer your character. Obviously mass 99s because I'm not a lumby peasant.

    There is a way to get rid of it but pretty sure it involves contacting Jagex and a two day wait

    They're all members' skills so it could be something to do with your membership running out.
