Sal's RuneScape Forum

Recommended Posts

Hi all! It is with a heavy heart that I type this now...

This used to be one of my go-to places for RS3 help, but sadly, Salmoneus seems to have abandoned the place after the Back to the Freezer guide came out, and it is now - regretfully - completely dead...

I will keep my account, but, truthfully, I don't expect to ever use it again. I mainly use Rune H.Q and the Jagex-approved R.S Wiki now, as the Fandom-run RS Wiki is as dead as this site, and has been since roughly 2019... 

Anyway, this is Noble K bidding Sal's Realm a fond farewell, and wishing things didn't have to end the way they did...

Sorry to hear that.  The site editor broke after Back to the Freezer.  :(. Thanks for sticking around for a few years after that.

We went to the freezer and never came back out!

In all truth, using the site can be pretty hard because the games have updated a fair bit since.

Even back when I was questing and adding updates, so much information had changed.

Oh yeah, you need a thriving userbase just to even have a Wiki up and running with frequent updates. A site, with guides, tips and tricks, would naturally fall behind a Wiki unless you have a very high userbase able to test everything properly.

There is a reason why guides often took time to write, or required a dedicated crew of people to get everything done. Back in the IRC days, we were about 5-20 people regularily running around, doing certain pieces of a guide. Like, one would take pictures, one would do the writing, one would come up with solutions to puzzles and such, and it flowed pretty organically.

It was what made update days so fun, because it was like the hive was stirring with energy and motivation. :tongue:

Sals Realm and places like Tip.It and RuneHQ liberated us from that god-awful QuestHelper token system Jagex had. 

I still write walkthroughs for games (and still play RuneScape, I'm sorry to say) and I'm not sure I would've ever appreciated the art of Explaining How To Do A Video Game without community quest guides.

You mean that thing that had Hints and Spoilers...? Jesus H. Christ, was that an abomination of a help system...

Sorry, I was only replying to that quoted post. I'm not returning full time, or at all, really. Not unless a bunch of us agree to get together and create a replacement site. However, unless or until I delete this account, I will answer replied posts, PM's, etc.

So in theory, I can just keep adding your name @NobleKorhedron and you will log in? DEAL.

I'm working on a site if you want to contribute? As long as this forum exists etc, I'll be linking to this forum!

Will the site be like the old Sal's Realm; or what exactly is your plan? And sorry, but no; tagging me alone won't automatically receive a reply, especially if I think that's exactly what you're doing...

It's more about efficiency & optimisation. Instead of trying to compete with the wiki and all these other places it's compiling all the data and giving you the best way to level and quest. The site is directed more towards players who understand the game but need answers to their questions without having to research 3 different sites or trawl through the wiki to get what they want. It's only just beginning, I haven't even finished the agility page, but you can see kind of what i'm going for here. @Sobend @Yuanrang, I hope this link is okay, happy to remove it if not.

I have only been focusing on Old School at the moment.
