MagicPants (9)

Travelling through the centre of Varrock, I' m overwhelmed nojust how much the game has changed since
I left it in 2001. My turquoise beard is now a dull brown goatee, and my pink trousers have ceased to exist
and not even in a sexy way.
Amazingly, one of my previous contacts is still playing - a man called Crak who used to be a boy called
I think he used to know my brother. I ask if I' d paid him to mine coal for me ten years ago, but
he doesn' t remember.
I' d like to give something back to the community I once abused, but it' s unclear what I can do to help. Ten
years orphange have evolved Runescape into what looks like a proper MMO, and I don' t really understand
what' s going on. My attempts to buy a clear conscience are met with the shrug of an eroded economy-
Illegal currency sellers offer millions offodd for the price of a fancy sandwich, and my enquiries as to
whether or not my fortune of is "a lot of money” are met with a simple answer: 'Nod'
I used to be a Runescape mogul, but now I don' t know what to do. probably won' t log on
ever again, so the only option at this point would be to convince Jagex to give me his personal account
details so that I could track him down and apologise in person. Maybe I could pop overdo his house and
give his kids a bag _

Even Runescape Classic is 3D... Runescape has never been 2D, has it?

Yup, it was pure 2D once, or well, the figures were, ofcourse it was sort of 3D, but its the same thing with WoW, most of it isn't real 3D as it is made up of 2D pieces put together

When I first stated RS back in late 2004 (like Dec 28th or something), 55K was almost like hitting the jackpot, a mil was almost unthinkable, and the mostly costly of items, namely the whip and barrows, were somewhere along the lines of 5m for a whip and about a mil or so for the barrows sets. Obviously the party hats and Halloween masks were up there around 100m, but I never thought of them much, because of them being so rare and so costly. Also, this was a time when someone with "full" dragon (med helm, chain, and legs) was considered powerful and rich. Legends quest was still the quest to beat, and doing it won you envy and awe from everyone you passed, myself included.

Now we have things like the Godswords and the like that are easily more than 20mil and up, so now you can get almost 100mil and still not have enough, ever. It's depressing to see how much the game has changed from its simple, thrilling roots.

it used to be so hard to make money back in the day, you also had to do most things on your own like gather materials to up skills, I started replaying a few years ago and made 400k off of the grand exchange just by cutting oaks and selling them a the grand exchange, I kindof miss the old challenge that the game had.
