The dilemma of what to do next, for Runescape players is a part of their daily routine. Whether to go for a skillcape, get involved in clan wars or stake someone for 500 million, there are a lot of things crossing player’s minds. However, how about some universal things that every RS player should try at least once to see what the game is all about?
The first thing on this list is probably the most clear-cut. P2P in Runescape offers more open worlds, a lot more skills to train, a larger map, more activities and in-general a more complete game. It costs real-life money, but you do get an enjoyable experience with it. If you haven’t been a member yet, please add it to your bucket list because currently close to 90 percent of Runescape players are members. You will see the benefits and the upside of your decision quickly.
Player killing is a real rush of adrenaline in RS. While the duel arena or fighting monsters can be very engaging and fun, battling another human is an entirely different thing. Outsmarting and making better timed and well-executed moves against your opponent have a certain charm that will never be matched. Draw your D claws at the best moment, don’t forget the food and potions, switch prayers… In truth, it’s arguably the most notable feature of Runescape because the PvP combat is so simplistic yet immersive, no game in the world has yet to create something similar. If you haven’t tried it – please do, you will be hooked in minutes.
Monkey Madness I and II, Desert Treasure and Dragon Slayer II
These quests are an actual pain in… While Monkey Madness I and Desert Treasure are not as hard as some of the other quests, they are incredibly long, tedious and can frustrate you to the very limit. However, they give out awesome rewards and provide you with the in-game knowledge and open up more opportunities.
Monkey Madness I will let you wield the Dragon Scimitar, Desert Treasure (arguably the longest and most demanding quest in a psychological way) allows you to access Ancient Magicks and use the Ancient staff. These are two remaining Mohicans of the original OSRS back in 2004 and 2005, but if you want to push yourself – Dragon Slayer II and Monkey Madness II will also give you as much as you could handle.
However, once you complete them – you feel on top of the world. Consider doing them if you have spare time and fit the requirements!
Being a pure or Ironman mode
Pures are generally accounts that only level up specific stats (most notably strength making them str pures). It’s a neat way to spice up the experience of fighting other players if you are into that. However, it requires a lot of practice in combat and split-second reactions because the room for error is slim.
Ironman mode is a crazy thing for true extreme-lovers. If you pick this at the tutorial island, you will be locked out of trading with anyone or the GE, pick up drops from other kills, get items from the drop party, take part in staked duels. If you are, however, a true lover of extreme pleasure, the ultimate ironman will do just fine. You will also be denied the use of banks and will not keep any items if you die. Cool, right?
