Runescape gold does huge amounts of very good from rsgoldfast's blog

"Runescape gold does huge amounts of very good stuff and has charm and humor, but is a battle to comfortably play," explained John Walker in our initial Runescape review back in PC Gamer UK 192, before committing it a verdict of"Free and funny but also frustrating" plus a 72% score. Here, within a week of re-reviews, Austin assesses Old School Runescape as it stands in 2018.

Most MMOs lead you on a campaign that introduces the most important characters, activities and areas, and only then do they simply take off the leash and tell you to do whatever you desire. That last piece is where RuneScape Wiki starts. It is a sandbox MMORPG that is intentionally grindy and intimidatingly hands-off. You go through a five-minute tutorial which teaches you that the absolute bare minimum and then you're unceremoniously dropped to the hometown of Lumbridge. It is the kind of game where you need to bookmark the wiki until you can get anywhere. But if you are willing to push the brutal learning curve, and if you find Runescape's freewheeling sense of adventure liberating rather than overwhelming, you may well find your forever game.

Part of this reason Old School Runescape is really bad at Cheap OSRS gold describing itself comes down to its heritage. A decade ago, there wasn't any Old School Runescape. There was only Runescape. But following a major update totally overhauled Runescape and turned it into what is now colloquially known as Runescape 3, Jagex ran a poll to see if players desired independent servers in which they could play Runescape since it was back in the afternoon. Almost 500,000 people said yes, and Old School Runescape was first born. So, the threadbare tutorial is more than enough for those who've played Runescape before (such as myself). Nevertheless, Old School could still stand to direct new players a bit better, because it's completely unlike other MMOs.
