    Buying friends

    Nifty. By the pound, or what?
  2. Honestly, I'd give RS3 a try. Get into a clan, they've come quite a long way and I think there's some new updates in the very near future (or just past) but a clan will help you with that motivation to continue playing which myself and many others seem to struggle with. OSRS is great and all, but honestly, it seems to be only good for nostalgia purposes and after awhile I begin to question why I'm redoing the things I did many, many years ago. Some people might enjoy that but I personally do not. :P I didn't spend my time on Runescape so I could go back and redo it whilst still having access to that original account, except on a platform which is exceptionally better. Also, I had a seriously hard time coming back to RS3 after EOC because I hadn't even been around during the BETA so I was completely in the dark when I first came back. I think easing into Legacy helped a bit, but if I had been able to use the Legacy interfaces with EOC combat like we can today I would've been much more advantageous. However, I still came out pretty happy and am now working towards maxing which is something that I've always wanted to do.
  3. If you're gonna play RS3 just pick up where you left off. The updated combat and what not is really not going to change those first few weeks or months of just starting a foundation. It'll be much easier to learn the new content on an account you're semi-familiar with, and being able to jump right in without having to worry about getting starting gear or whatever will seriously increase the chances that you'll find the new changes user-friendly. So in my opinion starting a fresh account for "Newscape" would be kind of tedious and ruin your chances of actually returning for an extended period of time. I've recently returned to my account, again, for what feels like the thousandth time but this time I have a new outlook and desire to learn. I was skilling off and on for about ten years with just basic stats (70 across the board, y'know) but after actually giving EOC a shot and learning the game again I felt an enjoyment in PVM'ing that I had never ever had in the previous releases. I also think the large issue with the perception of the game today is how others seem to bandwagon on opinions. Prior to returning even I had been speaking poorly about EOC, though I had never played it! This is the story for many others, regardless of if they admit it or not, because stuff like this really takes on a snowball effect. Also, some people say that micro-transactions and what not are a huge plague to Runescape but truthfully it's keeping the company afloat and is in no way mandatory. I find it's primarily newer players that seem to purchase stuff for real money, us vets know how to get stuff done the old ways. :) As far as 07 goes, I had high hopes initially but now it actually reminds me more of the downward spiral that we all witnessed shortly after 2007 or so. However, that being said, I'm probably biased but it's still my opinion. The only way I see 07 being an appealing or feasible community would be with a group of friends or some sort of clan of ideally old friends. It's a nice community, I suppose. They seem to put to much time and effort into convincing the community that certain updates are essential and not enough time on taking into account what the actual platform needs; in my opinion.

    Double Whammy!

    Got Herblore and saved it because I was only about 400k or so away from 99 Constitution. Just used a relic to get em at the same time. Construction next!

    Double Whammy!

    About 170m I'd guess. It wasn't quite 200 thanks to bonus XP & aura.
  6. I bet ya got hacked and your account was used to spam links to gold sites. If you're thorough and have a good attitude with them I think you'll be able to get your account restored.

    #7 - Runecrafting

    Impressive! Congratulations. If only I had the motivation to play OSRS.

    About Damn Time!

    About Damn Time!

    I've always enjoyed skilling before but when I came back from a break this year I vowed to finally work on getting my combat up, finally maxed my combat level! :)

    About Damn Time!

    Attack & Strength. Both of them are at 90, and Constitution is at 98 with 900k to go til 99. :) I got max combat at 98.

    I really don't understand some adds

    Because Adblock ruins advertisements, advertisements are the lifeblood of commerce, and those against commerce are communists. Are YOU a communist? WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA? I just hate foreign car commercials in between my Youtube videos or Wal-Mart ads randomly popping up during Twitch streams. ;)

    I really don't understand some adds

    Why the hell doesn't anyone use AdBlock?

    99 Firemaking (#6)

    Yikes! Returning after a break is never easy, but congratulations on 99 Firemaking! :D Looks like you've got quite a few options of what to do next in my opinion though.

    Malevolent VS Torva

    It's hard to determine how much you're really working with here; but I'd suggest getting Torva, or saving up for Torva. Malevolent turns to dust whereas Torva is repairable. It also is well rounded and would negate the need for you to use Bandos which really isn't very efficient, even for mid-level slayer tasks in my opinion. Overall the Torva will be lest costly as you'll need to purchase a whole new set of Malevolent quite often to keep up with how fast it'll be degrading. If you plan on strictly bossing, then I'd consider a set of Malevolent, but just keep in mind that it's gonna turn to dust so you better be able to make over 17m in the amount of time you spend bossing with it to make it financially viable. ;)

    Choosing a laptop.

    If you're absolutely set on purchasing a laptop then I'd suggest looking into MSI for sure. They've got some great builds and honestly they're the only manufacturer I've seen that can actually make a laptop that has efficient cooling along with a powerful GPU.

    Death Penalty

    Nobody should play God, nobody should have the right to decide who lives and dies - yes. Yet, when an individual murders someone they are in a sense playing God; or at least God's ugly brother. Some people do require the death penalty, look into the past for some examples of serial killers who were given the death penalty. In almost every instance they require such a ruthless punishment for the crimes they committed. However, a 15 year old boy murdering his parents? That's a cry for help. He has to be extremely mentally disturbed. He's only 15, his life should not be cut short for actions that will destroy him anyway. Waking up daily knowing you took the lives of those who gave you your life? That's punishment enough in my opinion.. Also, you make it seem like jail is great? You are extremely narrow-minded and naive. (directed at OP)

    Kept you waiting... Huh?

    Looks pretty good, I wanna get back into MGS and I'm hoping this will do it! Definitely gonna buy it.. Based on the comments though, (which I know are usually trolls) it seems like the graphics won't be as good on a Playstation in comparison to the video.

    Why the change to Gielinor?

    I've seen it before, but like Dei said it's kind of a grey area. I'll still stick to calling it Runescape, Jagex is getting to carried away with "change for the better."
  19. I was actually wondering that at first glance.. Anyways, Poppys popularity / social status IG will be the only thing that creates popularity in the clan. It'll be uncomfortable after awhile seeing as it will eventually always be full.

    What Would You Do?

    I got hacked before the original addition of the TL, I lost just under 200m. I quit the account completely, and started playing again a year later on a new account. Getting a fresh start had a weird effect on me.
  21. Well, I personally know I make way to many accounts.. x_x But how many do you find you make? I'll add a poll too, but comment and give your opinions / views on having multiple accounts. I've had tons, the ones I keep I forget about, get bored, give away, or they get hacked. The last option being the least favorable, and most common. :l Yet, I still love making skillers, or accounts focused on one skill. My current account (Omfgpwntage) started as a tank, and I've recently made him into a main over the past few months. He now has 99 woodcutting and 99 hunter, after I get some nice cash I'll expand on his stats and possibly keep him as a main. I just wanna see if everyone makes loads of accounts like I do is all.

    Sal's Playstation Club

    Has anyone tried Undead Nightmare? I'm trying to get some opinions before I buy it.. Other than that, looking into waiting before I buy Black Ops, hearing some problems about it right now, I'll probably pick up AC:B before Christmas though, I've been following the release since it was announced.

    Ideas For Rs

    My point exactly. All of those points take away the originality / unique aspects of Runescape. I somewhat see your point on the weapon fusing, but it'd be a very hard system to incorporate and could have many problems.

    It Cost, But It Feels Good Xd

    D Claws around 30ish, on a skill it'd probably be prayer when I bought 3k dbones.
