You'd think so? But, once I had been playing with... I was pleasantly surprised! I didn't get into PC games before Half-Life, but it is reminiscent of ancient PlayStation games, an age I'm more familiar with and fond of where everything was made of chunky, brightly colored polygons, the planet gradually clipping into perspective as you explore, and RS3 gold enchanting MIDI music blazing as you go. Additionally, it is impressively tutorialized, discovering its menu choices and associated systems one-by-one as you explore the opening island. I've already forgotten how to use an anvil, or how to bake some bread, but I misjudged RuneScape as something that drops you at the deep end without explaining how anything works.
I also appreciated how the first thing that you fight is that a rat in a mine. This is an MMO all perfect! There's a portion of my brain that's devoted to pure RuneScape knowledge. I can write you a manual right now about how to smith a scimitar or to brew a prayer potion. I have always loved how so a number of the abilities in RuneScape are interconnected; you grow herbs using the farming skill, for instance, and, thanks to herblore, utilize them to create potions, which may provide boosts to a searching ability or help out in combat. There is a real benefit to training every ability, which becomes more apparent that the deeper you delve into RuneScape game. Now that you have escaped Tutorial Island, how are your first actual steps in Gielinor going?
Alright, so now I am really playing and picking up quests, I am starting to run up from the antiquity of it all. I've found it's quite fiddly to get around, and my character's endurance depletes quickly, making exploration feel a lot more slow than I had been expecting. Meanwhile clicking things is inconsistent - would you converse? Will you pickpocket? Rather than milking it will you puncture that bunny with your bronze sword? (I quickly discovered right clicking things is the way to go.)
Additionally, the combat is frightfully easy - you simply click on a goblin (of which there are an alarming number of? ) ) And you'll automatically exchange blows until it dies, then repeat, occasionally pausing to consume something for wellbeing. At first this did not feel in the soul of RuneScape game, but then I realised - that's how MMOs are supposed to work, right? It is a thing you chip away at while doing listening to things?
I'll confess that if I'm training a skill like woodcutting or mining, I usually do it while reading. Doing so hasn't felt like I am betraying RuneScape game in some way, I'm still playing after all, I don't want to watch my own adventurer chop trees for an hour. Grinding is an unavoidable part of any MMO and, as long as you're not having a bot, I do not care how folks get through it. For mepersonally, the ease of the combat has ever been part of Buy OSRS GP game's allure. It's possible to make it more complex by utilizing magic as your primary weapon or by training the slayer skill, which involves hunting down monsters which can only be murdered with particular things, but I enjoy how the melee battle is simplified, so that you can focus on buffing your abilities with potion or food. (There's also a great questline that investigates what is occurring with the goblins from the Lumbridge area.)
