Anyone use to play this shit back in the day? tell me some stories anon, prove your an oldfag who played back in the good ole days.
ITT: RS nostalgia general
Being 8 and a free player, had to mine coal for 300g per ore to those rich faggots in rune trim from the mining guild place with the giant ass scorpions.
Also killing cows near lumbridge to sell for 100-200g per cowhide to moar rich fags in alkharid
and finally. Free rune trim trimming. *Shows shears and gold bar*
I found a way to make a shit load of money but it took some time.
You go to the dessert and then buy kebobs from the store for 2 each and then each one sells for 40 guaranteed in the grand exchange. Buy sell repeat, ive made over 360k that way
I used to travel all across the land, about level 42 or 45 and saw the whole world. It was pretty fun since runescape had a bunch of unique and memorable places, and the situations I got into were pretty intense and fun, like being stuck at the top of a mountain with no health and surrounded by wolves.
it was fun until the game was ruined by the devs and everyone did mass quittings
When did you guys make your runescape account?
June 2006 here.
I left at the peak of my Runescaping career. middle school came so fast, would all my items still be in the bank from like 2004? pretty sure i had some of those gay holidays hats and masks people used to masturbate over

Back when I started in 04, come home from primary school and slam runescape till 9pm at night, go back to school the next day and talk with friends about it, get home from school and rinse and repeat.
remember my first world, 29, i used to role play with some chick back in 2007 and i baught membership wayyy to early,always thought i was a cool bitch, broke as shit.lel stil thought he game was fucking magical though
YOU SHOULDN'T. YOU SHOULD FUCKING HATE IT LIKE ME. IT'S WRONG FOR PEOPLE TO LIKE THINGS I HATE. NOW I'M GOING TO TRY AND CONVINCE YOU WHY THE GAME IS BAD, EVEN THOUGH YOU JUST MADE IT CLEAR THAT YOU DON'T CARE EITHER WAY. WHY YOU LIKE THE GAME IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS, BUT I'M GOING TO STICK MY NOSE INTO IT DEEPER THAN A GHANDI QUOTE. BECAUSE IF I HATE SOMETHING THEN EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO OR THEY WILL FEEL MY WRATH. I AM FIRE. I AM DEATH. I AM AN ASSHOLE
Spending hours in that dungeon thing fightng moss giants and farming spider eggs for strength pots, getting hella skrilla dilla
I was scammed out of my suit of full black armor in 2004 back on RS Classic by changing my password in game to moneybags and hitting shift+f5 (or something that shut my window) because somebody told me it was a cheat for more money. I was like level 105 combat when the dragon chainmail chest came out and then I quit and never made a real comeback. Those were the days though.
~2004 or so, running around the wilderness and seeing 100 lvl 30-50's in f2p wrecking anything they saw.
All I ever did was PK, so all my memories are killing green dragons for loot or pk'ing.
Hey dude nice armor, do you want me to put gold trim on that? I'll be back in a sec.
>mfw they give me the armor and I walk away and never return
I was hooked on choppin trees in that game, no joke :) Wanted to get lvl 99 or whatever so I could get dem Magic Log$$$.
Then I got into botting, and then I got my DFS, then I >A.C.T:U.A.L.L.Y traded my acc for CSS on steam, and since then I've been a competitive gamer <3 Fuck Casual games
My first ventures at money making/entrepreneurship were selling Pheonix crossbows for like 600gp in Varrock to guys doing the Shield of Arrav quest, and killing cows and selling their hides (untanned) for 300gp per in Al Kharid.
Staking at the Draynor village walls on world 1
Party hats with Mrgarrison.
those were the days.
although pic taken 1 minute ago, trying to telegrab that fucking ring for hours back in the day
Remember before these certain logs after you chopped them down they were worth like 40k a piece and there was another log that looked exactly the same and were only like 10 gp so you can scam the fuck out of people > mfw I made over 500k in a week selling fake 40k logs

I loved that game, haha. The fact that so much of your loot dropped when you died gave runescape a feel a lot of other MMO's don't offer. Too bad the game sucks now.
i did nothing but farm non combat skills and defense, become an unbeatable tank with near infinite healing and buffs
Also, pissed off skychi as a kid and felt responsible for him quiting
had fun though, i hate the evolution of combat, if i wanted a shitty generic mmo, i would play a shitty generic mmo
Yeah he was like the first in the leaderboard wasn't he? Some no lifer bitch
I remember PKing like fuck back in 2005/2006 I think. Big group of us in WIldy, teleporting using the big group teleporter things. I had ancient magiks and could Entangle and blast with Ice while the rest of team would use arrows and melee and shit to kill whoever we were fighting. Spent HOURS doing it, used to be so much fun. Was part of a small clan and we all really enjoyed it, even made some real life long term friends from it too.
Better than real life at the time
A nigga would sell feathers. fucking thousands of feathers to make milliions
yeah he was the first nigga to get all 99s in all skills at the time which a lot of people dont realize and think it was zezima
I'm logging into RS now, see how much has changed
Dude it was about 8 years ago and the amount of drugs I've done it that time is scary, I apologize for not being autistic and remembering small details of a crappy java based online multiplayer game I played after school
Selena Gomez, dummy
Man I've just logged in and it's horrible
How do I play the old version I'm used to? I want to go PKing
>mfw I've just remembered I had a bot account. Level 13 with 99 Mining, I used to mine some expensive ore in lvl 50 wilderness and sell it for loads of money. Rune ore maybe?

Went to WOW. played for 3 months. Haven't played either since.
Right there with you man, maybe even sooner. I think I might have started in 2002 even, but I can't remember. I played it from like 2nd grade until 5th grade. Left in 5th grade for WoW and played that until 10th grade. Good god I was a nerdy kid. I'm a sophomore in college now. But yeah man I played Runescape so far back in the day, but it makes me wonder if I was ever actually good at it. I thought I was good, and I got to a decently high level, but bear in mind I was like 10.
I feel you. I stopped playing a while ago but I still have full bandos, full arma, bgs and other shit.
3 99s: Magic, Strength and Range (achieved in that order)
bgs was the shit
>mfw I lent my bgs for 300k (which was the limit) for 7 hours before I went to school because obviously I did not need it
also making some serious bank and getting dem fancy boots down here
Legacy brings the Old combat style to the game, because Fagex realised they tried fixing something that wasn't broken and now they're picking up the pieces.
>Same shit ruined armour levels, OP weapons graphics and bullshit fairy microtransactions though
It would make no difference to the game, it's dead.
I sometimes login to take a look at the new features
It's a shame that you need to pay to play Old School RS
Feels all around...
grouphug in the shower /b/ros in memory of the good times we had and share
>implying anyone will care if we do a raid on the f2p part of the game
Jagex will not let me recover my account. The account recovery asks for information that was not required back when I played in 2002-2005. I can't even remember the AOL email I used with it back then :(
I used to level my ex's divination on this shit all the time, until I got cheated on.
Motherfucker fucking motherfucker wasting all my fucking time making me chase those dumb ass fucking orbs for hours cunt.
fuck all that speculation i want to play games to have fun
Fucking hell you guys claim to be old school players?! What the fuck is this. I remember only 3 servers. I remember when Black armour didnt fucking exist. I remember been a level 47 str monk, hitting 26's.
I remember when r2h swords were 100k each.
I remember looting party hats off the ground. I remember buying mask sets the day after they were dropped for 30k a fucking SET!
I remember drinking half jug of wine!
I remember when been over level 60, (old school 60 not the bs u have now) you were considered a fucking GOD
I remember, killing goddam guards forever, coz 1 def restricted what I could grind. 91 str killing guards, imagine that mother fuckers.
I remember a drop party when rune was so rare that when a rune longsword was dropped, people didnt stop talking about it for days.
I remember old school wow, you guys dont even know shit. Probably still in diapers when I was playing it. That game shaped my future. I feel saddened you guys didnt get to see the REAL glory days.
Thats right, I started playing when there was only 3 servers. My friends and I both. We used to call it, Run Escape. Because thats all we fucking did, we were so noob.

Hmm.. prove that I'm an old fag. Dunno, oldest thing I can remember is the early RS2 release, where basically almost the only area available was Varrock and you could PK in it. (No it's not pk world implemented in like 2010), it was around 2003 I suppose.
Yeah, I actually started Runescape right when Runescape 2 was released, so you might imagine my nostalgia feels, when I went through all the best RS years back in a day. That is 2003-2006. Quit rs actively in early 2007. Returned once in 2009 and then in 2010. Last time I played rs was last year when OSRS (2007 version) was released, I played first full month, then I realized the game wasn't the same anyway). Probably never going to play this again, but damn, some serious amount of childhood memories are within this game.
>Near the very end of my RS career that drop party place opened
>Chilled there all the time and never got anything good
>In bank, see teller screaming "OVER 1MILLION IN CHEST"
>Some rich fuck put an abyssal whip in there
>HOLY SHIT I GOT IT
>Open up trade windows to laugh at the skeptics
>End up trading it for 500k and a set of rune because I thought that was a good deal
>killing people in castle wars by making rocks fall on them
I used to play every day and waste hours of my life on that shit when I was like 9 and it was still RS Classic. At 12-13 I quit for the most part and kinda just moved on to WoW directly after, which is only marginally better now. I almost want to go back and play RS now for nostalgia. If only I remembered my fuckin account.

Just email player support about getting your account back. I sell my runescape account every now and then, and after I few months I just email player support telling them I can't get into my account and email anymore bacause they both were hacked.

There was a player, named "bluerose13x" who was able to make rune armor (she was one of the few that could do this as this was very early on), and did it for free if given rune bars...she got free XP and they got rune armor made out of the rune bars. So, a lot of people showed up in this little house with an anvil, it was crowded...probably about 30-40 people standing on top of each other. So, I created an account named "blurose13x" or something similar, then went to the anvil and started trading with people and taking all of their rune bars. Was fun/evil times.
Still here. Lurking every RS thread.. Fletching in East Varrock Bank, nobody ever comes here. Only Max.. Just got 99 range, my first. I always wanted to throw a party with all my friends, but that was years ago. All of my friends are gone. Sad times ahead.
Real nigga talkin here, no bustas
made an account on the 2007 servers about a month ago only to be blasted by nostalgia, after spending days making the best bronze equipment there was in all of runescape, people would drag their scrotum's across fields of glass just to catch glimpses of my glorious bronze work until one day it wouldn't let me log in anymore and my legacy in bronze working was finished tl;dr fuck you jagex i want muh bronze back
>do that quest where you can buy spiked boots for cheap
>buy a shitload of them, over 100
>sell them at the ge for 700 a pair I think
Then my friend got my stats reset because he used a bot on my acc
Oh well lol
I played from 2003 to 2006.
When I was at work one day in 2004, I paid a guy $5 for his account.
>Log into account when I get home
>LOTS of party hats
>Party poppers, half-wine, pumpkins...
I mean, this account was filled with stuff he thought was garbage, but worth a fortune.
What did I do?
Sold it all for 800k and used the account as a mule for mining.
Had a friend named DeadlyxArrow who I pked with all the time in 2006 on our pures.
Never saw him again until years later, I met him during conversation in barbarian village, not knowing it was him as he was on a new account and I pooped a little when he told me his old username.
After that I forgot his username after quitting for several months then I eventually quit forever.
If you're out there DeadlyxArrow and a few other guys that I don't remember, I miss you.

Might seem like shit, but trust me, it was awesome. Play together in the snow from 10-16 every day, then play RuneScape together for another 8 hours before we went to bed and woke up the following day to do the same shit.
Sadly, lost this mate 3 years ago. Some wounds never heal.

It's true though. I'm fairly certain quite a few of the oldtimers have gone through this. I had a friend too - Tsunade0 - whom I met killing goblins or some shit outside of the Al-Kharid gate. I split my meager moneybux with him so we could pass together. We fought, mined, crafted and pretty much lived our virtual lives together in RS. Gave the first mithril plate I found to him, and he later passed me a ragtag suit of adamentite in return. We grew and became fairly un-noob, braving the Karamja volcano dungeon, distributing our lobsters. Then he just dosappeared. Whenever I'm reminded of RS, I can't help but wonder what happened to him/her... Friendships and loyalty was so strong back in those pleb days, which made the adventures soooo fun.
Logged in, still had my millions, but I don't know what the shit I'm looking at anymore? I thought this was runescape, not WoW with its fucking hotbars and shit.
You can buy membership in-game? Dress items? The fuck? What happened to "I'll PK you with my damn Santa hat on noob"

Indeedly so, I still have two friends who I met 7+ years ago added and even though they're on the opposite side of the planet and we still regularly keep in contact whenever we are online.
