It’s the year 2018, Runescape was launched more than 17 years ago, yet it remains one of the most successful gaming franchises around the world. Hundreds of thousands of players are active daily with a lot of them joining forces and starting their journey in the lands of RS. However, they need guidance, tips, and advice on how to play and succeed in Runescape in 2018. Without further ado, let’s begin.
It’s a lot more fun with a membership
Everyone can play Runescape; it is a free-to-play game. But you can buy a membership and unlock:
- 10 more skills
- 80-90 percent more explorable area
- 117 quest tasks
Amongst many other great and irreplaceable features. You can build your own home or a harbor, climb on buildings or make potions which free players are not able to do. This adds a dimension to the game which is very pleasurable and rounds out the experience as, worth it. More information and prices can be found on the official site. So far, besides buying official prepaid cards in stores, this is the only legal way to purchase a membership. DO NOT FALL FOR SCAMS!
You can buy gold
Gold is the official currency and the only method of payment for goods and services in the game. Of course, trades could be arranged, but gold serves as money which was the intention all the way. Earning or gaining gold is extremely tough for newcomers, so a right way to get a head start is by buying gold from a reliable store. Now there are some sketchy sellers and dishonest people out there, but for the most part, stores that have feedback and reputation are entirely legit so that you can trust them.
One of these stores is Probemas – an honest and reliable seller of both Old School Runescape gold and Runescape 3 gold. Try to find a seller who can supply you fast, has many payment methods available and does not hide fees until the last moment. With some gold in the bank, you can progress faster and become a master a lot sooner.
Old School is still cool
There are two versions of the game available – Runescape 3 and Old School Runescape. The latter has inferior graphics and nostalgic value to players who remember that Runescape and have little interest in RS3. However, for newer players, it might be difficult to associate with this if they do not have experience with Runescape. Or vice versa, they could fall in love with the things that enchant the players of OSRS. Whichever the case may be, remember that the Old dog (OSRS) has a lot to offer, probably more than you can handle at first so at least give it a try. There’s a high probability that you’ll fall in love with it!
Join Runescape communities on social media and online
By following social media personalities or pages that generate content which you appreciate, players enable themselves to be more involved in the game’s community right from the get-go. You can follow them on various media platforms along with reading the Runescape wikias to get the most in-depth information about the subjects you generally care about.
PK the hell out of others
PK’ing is a pure art form. Some players look at it as a way to earn a lot of money but strategizing, planning and reacting to your opponent’s moves are what PK’ing is all about. It blends what you have learned previously with ingenuity, creativity and the ability to outsmart your opponent. If you don’t already know what PK is, it’s Player killing or just PvP combat. If you know how to PK and fight against strong opponents, you can truly succeed in this game.
Even though we mentioned that you could buy gold, Runescape is a game full of surprises and rewards for those who are not afraid to break a sweat. The Runescape lifers are a group and breed of people who characterize themselves with the help of Runescape or got some personal qualities like perseverance and immunity to monotony thanks to this MMORPG.
Most of the progress you do in-game is focused on executing the same objectives thousands of times. Do just that, and you will see how fun it is to reach level 99 Runecrafting finally… hehe…
