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
I bought a santa hat back in the day for like 450k They started to go up in price and I eventually sold it for a whip. I want to fucking kill myself because now I could probably sell the fucking thing for real life money and buy a car.
Normal account's got boring and I eventually mained a pure for the rest of my time on rs. Joined Corrupt Pures (Now the #1 pure clan in 07 servers)
This was probably the highlight of our power in the old days. My clan and fatality challenged 3 clans to a 2 v 3 full out war and they pulled max ops clearly outnumbering us but we prevailed in the end.
I remember scamming noobs with the old "I'll cut your gems/Trim your armor for free" trick
I also told people they could duplicate items by dropping them on the ground and changing worlds.
I was muted a lot but whenever I was I'd make a swastikia or spell profanities in Varrock town square with pots
>Run bot program
>Go do more interesting things than left clicking
>Collect all the shit those leveling peasants need with my virtual slave
>Come back after letting it run for a few days
>Fuck tons of what I told my slave to collect
>Flood over priced items with my boundless amounts of low priced goods
>Rule the server economy
>Make a new account and start all over
You couldn't stop me Jagex
>got to level 49 by killing chickens for their feathers
>sold feathers by the tens of thousands to people who needed them for fishing
>buried bones so my prayer level was like 50
>got full h5 heraldic adamant armour, with addy scimmy and all types of shit
>at one point I sold like 100k feathers
>shitton of money
>noobs farming chickens all getting mad because i hogged them, some experienced player that spent all day killing chickens
>all this good shit from killing chickens endlessly
>i killed hundreds of thousands of chickens at the farm near lumbridge
Watching I mahatma I back in the day, getting my first whip drop in the wildy, hitting 99 strength, 94 mage and 70 attack, pking for ages, getting my fc, losing my fc, getting my fc, losing it, etc.
Game was the pits, peaked esp '06-'07. Tried to play 07scape, but i don't have the time anymore, I work too much, never have time to just sit and waste like I used to every arvo
>finally made myself an iron set
>wanted to mine with friends
>had them on speakerphone
>goes to gate
>goes to mine
>had no food, no run %
I was talking the other day about how I didn't play RuneScape, and then immediately had a flashback to 10th grade where I got fucked up and played RuneScape all the time, but didn't do anything besides kill pigs.
The only thing I specifically remember was being on the phone with my friend who was also playing, and I was trying to make a fire, so I asked, "Yo do you have a light?" Laughed for probably 45 minutes, I'm assuming I was probably high, although it's still funny.
Developer Andrew took programming with a friend of a friend's brother. We all played games (cs 1.4/1.5 sc1) - when he learned about runescape. This was when there was 1 server and almost nothing to do. You regularly saw the developers walking around the game, and they would throw games for people like hide and seek.
It was crazy that the game got huge because we played it from some of the earliest stages. I paid for 'members' when it came out and kept it for 1 year before stopping the game.
I sold my accounts for hundreds of dollars, which helped me a lot at the time.
You're supposed to make an extremely low level player. That way only other lowish noobs can prey on you.
Another alternative would have been making a pure. But that shit went out the window once they introduced running and no more three rounds of combat encounters
>Need gold as a member
>Notice members can get colored gloves but non members can't
>Non members can still equip them
>Decide to buy a bunch of colored gloves
>Go on free servers and sell them at a premium
>Become the glove merchant
Felt good, earning a good chunk of money every time.
>got to be some kind of character to these people
>sometimes players would want to see me kill chickens for hours
>minor celebrity to the noobs
>bought a second set of h5 addy armour for duels
>won a few, people would beg for their shit back
>lel no already sold it m8
>when i DID die the people who killed me would want to gloat and shit
>would reappear with full armor and they would wut
got tired because i had to be a member for dat cape so i quit and gave everything to my cousin
my name was armagedoom_8 or something
>like armageddon but with one less "d" and "doom"
>be walking down falador with my full rune and zammy kiteshield (it took me like a fucking month of jew cutting to get it though)
>feel like a boss
>suddenly a random female with pink clothes approaches and starts talking to me
>talk for about an hour about some meaningless shit
>after a while "she" asks for 5k gp
>be a white knight and give her 30k gp instead
>instantly logs out
>never to be heard from again
>mfw i got scammed by a gold digger in a children video game
life lesson learnt
>only played f2p
>macros, macros everywhere
>make a lvl 6 account called Iclose Doors
>go to the rune essence temeport entrance at the shop in Varrock
>constantly close door to the shop
>macros get confused and run around
>nearby muggers and random events attack macros
>i take their rune essence
>about a month later
>jagex releases a patch to combat "door spammers"...doors jamb open about a couple open and closes
hell yeah man. spent like an entire school holidays killing these virtual fucking chickens, burying bones and selling feathers.
i almost want to see what the old shithole is like these days and go back to my old stomping ground
>tfw switched to maplestory after that and then stopped playing all vidya to this day
i started in 2003 and quit in 2004 in favour of woW (grand marshal was my status bro)
played rs again for 6 months in 2012 because of back injury
my lord it got easy, quit 2 weeks after that combat system change
>tfw they've brought back old combat
i may start playing again.
>mfw i was semi rich when I last played and now market has crashed since then and now I'm loaded because I sold all my shit for gp before I quit
That's kinda small change imo. During the middle of the week I would buy lobster's and swordfish at normal prices then go on runescape community fourm's and find out what main clans are warring at the weekend then just sell them outside edgevile for a profit because you know someone is going to need them.
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.
oh yeah, and
>bored, wandering around killing shit
>find...a castle of wizards? fuck you niggers i'll kill all of you
>noob watching me
>he gets all my stuff
>buy it back for 50k
>he's so happy
>tell him he could have sold it for way more
>yfw the sandwich lady offers you something from her tray
I have a zombie head from an old halloween event that I can use to recreate scenes from Hamlet or some shit. I remember when DDS's and dragon schimmys were god tier if you were too poor for whip.
Played in 2001 when the game came out. None of you will ever remember that the original bronze arrows were actually tiny as fuck, or when moss giant was the strongest monster in the game.
Remember trading rune full helms for blue phats.
i started a new account the other day
this is so much more fun than having high skills
Level 6 twat in Lumbridge when some level 20 is giving me the business (at the time i may have deserved it) anyways a level 40 mage friend helps me throw insults back and forth. Fast forward by YEARS but still years behind today and by this time that lvl 40 mage actually gave me his account for in game gp when out of nowhere the dude who insulted me all those years ago confronts me in private chat saying i was the one who defended the loser low level. Tell him "Uh, I am that low level" get reported tell Jagex I'm sorery as well as a "come on... really?" approach to the stupidity of it. lost account back to original owner and played my low level whas like level 20 at the time up to late 70's or mid 80's dont remember. Haven't touched the game in a while
my most notable life-changing experience with rs:
>be f2p cheap fuck
>have no friends, spend all my days playing runescape
>got to like 2m cutting jews, did some pking, random questing, ect
>found out people in w2 are paying mad coins for iron/mith/addy arrows
>found out arrows can be bought for like 10x less price at a random shop
>figured out a method, where i would buy arrows for cheap in one world and switch to a new one
>almost always a chinese bot in the shop also buying arrows for cheap
>profit was insane, kept doing this for like three months
>finally get to 15-16m coins
>buy a green dragon mask
>achieved life happiness for a week
>see a random post in forum buying mask for 20k willows
>calculate it in my head, yeah seems about right
>go trade him my mask
>calculate it again - i realize i was wrong by a factor of 10
>traded mask for 1m worth of willows
>dude says "enjoy" and logs out. never forget
>life is in ruins
>quit rs the next day, (although i came back 6 months later, the game was fucking addictive)
never rush calculations ever again
I havent played in years.
I did log on right before they did the evolution of combat just for old times sake.
Some kinda roulette thing, got a fish mask.
Didnt go back after the update.
I remember this one time I met this guy on RS, we became fast friends, then I guess he trusted me enough for me to help him with something...
>Cool guy, lets call him Mark, trusts me after months of questing together
>comes to me with a proposition
>"Hey anon, I've been looking for someone to help hack my old account back." something like that
>RS was slowly dying, I could feel it
>at the very edge of the glory days
>God Wars Dungeon had come out a month earlier
>turns out he knows the password the hacker changed it too, and the hacker regularly plays on the account.

>Log back on my account

>Fucking ecstatic, most money i've ever had at once
>He has a house party to celebrate
>never thought of it again until now
>we lost touch a long time ago
>mfw the guy we hacked was probably just some random guy, not his old account
>mfw I regret nothing
>Played Runescape constantly
>leveled up to 61
Not that shitty "skill level" those faggots use now
>quit the game for awhile
>ff about 2 years
>get on the game
>Notice everything is gay and updated
>notice my character is now a girl
>notice i'm a member with full dragon shit

Damn l33t haxorz these days.
got 70 mining using the crafting guild in f2p for gold. made 1.2m, cousin logged into my account and bought sara plate. recovered account, sold sara plate for 1.5m, bought full rune (g). achieved all my goals in f2p so went membs. became a questwhore. had a shitload of fun doing quests, playing minigames like pest control, barb assault, stealing creation etc. good times. wish i had money now for members now. would probably live my teenagehood over again.

I hung out with Zezima 1 on 1 for like an hour in Yanille bank this one time. We were both fletching. He still wouldn't add me. tfw
i was botting to 99 str and lost a green halloween mask to rock crabs
tfw when years later I'm now a trap and have ~4 people fawning over me in game, even though I can barely find the motivation to log in because there's nothing to do but grind.
Oldfag here. Back when I was a fairly newfag to the game, and was about 11 or 12 at the time so I was highly gullible and shit, I met this person on there. Told me they would help me get gold or whatever so I trusted them and followed them. They led me out to this abandoned area where you could kill other players and began to attack me. Also there were giant fucking rats there as well. I was only like level 20 at most and this person was like level 50 and the rats were like level 30. I got fucked over and had all my shit stolen in the end.
Good times, good times...
being a noob, start mining, get 30 mining and get coal south of draynor with that song: book of spells shit my fav song ever. One masterrace full rune lvl 80 comes along and says he will buy all my coal, had like 300, gives me 100k, call my cousins to tell em the news, we go crazy over the phone...
thats how i became a rich fuck, after that my cousins were never able to surpass me, currently 14 skillcapes, quit in 2010
>good times nigga
oh god dont make me do it

>trade him, immediately realize how fucking useless the salamander is
>log out, literally cry over a video game
Fucking wow, the first time i remembered this even happened in years. God i was such a little bitch
>so many fucking memories from that game
I remember laughing like a fucking faggot to tehnoobshows videos.
Runescape: Hods Exposed was top kek for me all the time
And how they made Guthix a retard that shouted random shit.
Good times, m8, fookin' gud times.
Grinding big demon on max wildly early am times for rune helm. Get a couple, happy as shit. Low on lobby's so head back. Out of fucking nowhere comes a gang of faggots in archer gear spouting some Scandinavian language. Like 10 faggots. I run like a bitch but they jack my ass and take my shit. Fuckin scandies

"Looking for gf"
I still don't remember what caused this, but I got 500k gold from those looking for a gf.
Mfw 15 bfs at the time
I still play today. I've always played casually, and only occasionally put the dedication in for a 99 here and there. Might actually try to max out one day, I don't know.

>look up current market value a bit later
Was kicking myself for awhile for that, I wish I could have at least seen that kids reaction irl
was going to start playing rs3 again since they released the new legacy mode (allows you to play with the old combat system). but they nerfed it to near uselessness so i won't be playing that.

the released the 2007 version of runescape (oldschool.runescape.com) you need to be a member to play. would rather play this version
i got scammed out of all my iron armor because someone said they would "trim" it. i was 13 and that was 10 years ago. someone kill me.
> tfw I'm a member of Mining Golds
Any Mining Golds members online?
he said something along the lines of "You have the botting stuff and I dont so maybe you can keep him online for a long time with a bot"
now that you mention it, im not sure.
I wish i had proof, because when I read it over it sounds like a load of bullshit.
>RSC cape had permission to play RSC before they opened it to public, twice...
Hans wont tell me
damn that sucks. to be fair though i did that to a few kids after it happened to me. back before anyone knew what a "pure" was and how to really dominate the wilderness. i learned pretty quickly after that but the game just lost its flavor after a while. i guess they all do.
I used to play off and on for years. Played in in maybe 2001 or 2002. Quit, met best friend in middle school through RS after I saw him playing in the computer lab. I was a pmod for a bit, but I didn't respond to something they sent to my inbox so that got removed.

he was actually one of my longterm rs friends after that
No idea what I ACTUALLY did in this game, guys. I never went into wildy, and I just collected all of the different weapons sets and carried them at all times. Knight: shield sword, armor, Archer: bow, arrows, crossbow, bolts, leather, Mage: staff, every rune i could possibly have...
Played castle wars all the time and then somehow finished all of the free quests except for dragon slayer, and then walked around in my members shit after I quit shilling money out and just... walked around.
What a weird way to waste time. I calculated when the last time I logged in was. About the time I discovered internet porn. kek
just saw it... May of 2005. holy shit

I was in corrupt pures for like 4 months in 2007 before training defence and later on quit. i recognize loads of names in that vid.
began playing again in 2010 and joined Mayhem Makers. when i had high enough stats, stayed in mm until eoc came. pic related
a bit sad to see so few pures in these threads.

Two players walked up to me when I was wearing monk clothes and asked me if I could say wedding vows to them for 2k gold. I agree because I was running low, they paid up front and we left to go to the nearest church. I'm halfway through when my dad tells me to go get my baby brother out of his bed, I tell him hold on but he threatens to turn of the computer. I was paid up front so I was okay with just lodging out mid sentence... Still wonder what happened next...

My fucking guthix armor now bitch
Tons more stories those were the best days of my childhood
lol the construction glitch.
when construction came out you could teleport out of the fighting arenas and Pk people. You would lose everything even with protect item and no skull
The first guy to reach 99 construction hosted a massive party in his house. He kicked everyone from the house at one point and Durial who had PvP mode on was still able to fight outside.
Are u even trying?
>implying RSC aint the god of the god tier MMORPGs
So this is what qualifies for oldfags, huh? I started in early 2001. Here's a few things I remember:
- I remember global PVP (no Wildy) with a toggle you can only change twice after character creation. If you were PVP flagged you avoided the Lumbridge cabbage patch at all costs, always groups of PKers waiting there.
- Biggest clan for a long time is the Saber clan. They all created new characters with "Sabre" in the name, like "King Saber" and "Dark Saber". It was part of becoming a member.
- When adamant plate bodys were added, they were the toughest thing in the game and cost 40k coins. That sounds like pennies now but at the time that was a shit load of cash
- No item bank, only gold could be stored (and only in multiples of 5, no single coins), so you had to create mule characters to hold your shit.
- Highest smithing level for a long time was Bluerose13x, and she was the first person to be able to smith Runite gear (and there was not other way to get it, you had to get it through her). This required multiple mules worth of coal, something like 300 coal, which was prohibitively expensive at the time.
- There was initially only one server. It was a really big deal when we could log in and select between 2 servers :)
- How much meat healed was affected by your cooking level. This meant that a higher level chef could make quite a bit of money selling meat at popular fighting spots. This is how I was able to buy my first adamant plate :D
- There was actually supposed to be Player Owned Houses in sections of the map in Varrock and Falador, which you could see on the world map.
- Know how there is a fence to the west of the Barbarian Village and Draynor that runs North-South the whole way down the land? That's not just for show: that whole area (Falador/Port Sarim/Ice Mountain) didn't exist when I started
- When you started a character you chose a class that determined what items/skills you started with.
I have more but reached comment limit.
>like what can i do as a free player because my bank is over filled with mem shit and just horded junk
fucking this. My membership ran out years ago and now it's mostly members stuff that i want to wear again...shit, i can't even sell it
could anyone spot me a bond/ 2m? 7 year account - been playing this shit since like 6th grade.
Some guy dropped a red party hat like a freakin decade ago and i picked it up. Some guy wanted to trade and offered a adamantium sword. I was a noob at the time so it looked amazing.
what a fucking mistake...those party hats are worth like real world $500+ right?

Thats nothing boy.
Andrew Gowers grandfather here, looked after him when he was a child and helped raise him to become what he is today. Bought him his first computer and taught him the basics of java coding, from there he went on to master the art and produce the game all you newfags have come to know and love. Just remember if it wasnt for me impregnating his grandmother, you folks wouldn't have Runescape.
ah i remember monkey madness. Being a somewhat low level i was nervous as fuck trying to find a balance between bringing too much stuff for the boss fight and losing it if I lose, or bringing too little and still losing it
This buerose13x was actually a girl?
Getting famous on runescape or any game sounds impressive for 2001.
you either crushed a girl or scammed a scammer. Nice.
I was a loser in school with my (only) best friend and we would do literally nothing else but play runescape together. We even made two pures together and invested so much money into it. During lunchtime as a joke we would squirt water from a bottle at each other (pretending to ice blitz) and then run up to each other and do the Armadyl God Sword spec animation. Christ that was embarassing.

I didn't think it was a big deal back then, but there's not a single mmo out there in which pvp is so damn brutal. Newer mmos are so fucking dull.

Good ole' runescape. Haha, I remember losing my first santa hat to a lesser demon when i was a pure; I was maging them and watching youtube at the same time, and switched back to my screen just as I saw my hitpoints hit zero lol.
The best times I had in runescape was pking with a range/2hr pure in f2p. It was so much fun, sometimes i'd use a rune battleaxe and shit. I remember my first full rune kill was with a bax, ftw. Anyone remember Newbbeme or Most Dreaded?
Yea, I could go on... Had too much fun on that game as a kid.

They made it so you can buy membership with in game money now. There's also money making methods that are 6-7m an hour. You can buy 2 weeks membership for an hour of grinding.
Pic related, current account.
EoC has gone to shit, Legacy is a bastardized Frankenstein creation of EoC, and game in general is going down the shitter.
didn't play as far back as some people. started playing runescape back when tutorial island was still a thing got bored after a couple years. started again in between that version and the current one where the tutorial is you fighting a bunch of giant or trolls or something. then started again when runescape 3 came out then quit after a couple hours.
>>move up in game, sell old armors at GE
so youre telling me you kept all of your old armors for YEARS
>>get trimmed adamant armor, player home, black/purple cape
so youre saying that you started playing long before player homes were even introduced but by the time you had one you were only on addy armor
and buying rune armor was some sort of accomplishment
stop trying gtfo /b/
