Seeing that we already have 95,000 votes in favor of the 2007 servers, the 'Old' Runescape is confirmed that it is going to happen.

With that being said, on these new servers we will be starting completely from scratch. Not only will we have to work our way up from level three, we also have to build an entire economy with it. It's safe to say that within the first year (or even longer), Runescape's economy will be severely unstable, thus forcing you to practically be a DIY account. What is the game plan for starting out your new account. Aiming for 99 everything? Have a certain skill that you want to achieve a high ranking in? Are you focused on money, quests, or just creating an account with the absolute necessities to PK?

Just interested to hear the responses, I feel that I will be starting out in attempt to get Runecrafting up. Apologies for grammar, I haven't been on a forum in ages.

My plan so far:

  • Finish tutorial island and grab enough runes at the end to last me awhile.
  • Rush some sort of item spawn that sells well in the General Store (You'll have to find that out on your own. :thumbsup:)
  • Get about 25k worth of that item and sell to the General Store.
  • Go to the tunnels under Fally and get every Pickaxe up to Addy.
  • Buy swords from the Store in Al-Kharid and/or Weapon Shop in Varrock.
  • Go to Karamja and kill imps until you have every bead, and then go and kill cows for bones. (For Imp Catcher and Rune Mysteries)
  • Do Rune Mysteries and Imp Catcher
  • Mine Rune Essence until 15 mining.
  • Grab 6 clay, 4 Copper, and Two Iron.
  • Complete Doric's Quest for extra mining experience.
  • Continue mining rune essence until 40 Mining.
  • Switch to Pure Essence and grab about 5k essence.
  • Craft the runes, making mostly earth and body runes, and potentially nature runes.
  • Obtain 55 Magic with Confuse/Weaken/Curse (body/earth runes and a water staff).
    I can just skip Confuse and go straight to Weaken because of Imp Catcher magic exp reward.
  • With 55 magic, I will be able to do all of the essential quests (Fight Arena, Grand Tree, Tree Gnome Village, Merlin's Crystal, and Maybe Holy Grail)
  • Afterwards, I will have enough Quest Points to complete Dragon slayer for Rune Plate Capabilities, and work my way up from there.
It'll mostly consist of Mining/Runecrafting/Questing/Slaying.

EDIT: If anyone wants to improve upon it, feel free to post.

Not entirely sure yet, probs start out as a 1 def pure and slowly turn it into a main as the game progresses. Will most likely have to DIY everything so I'll need more than the minimum skill reqs.

I will be going for 91 Rc and 99 Rc and hopefully be one of the first people to achieve it. That will make me some bank, like 655k nats to 91 and another 1.6M Nats from 91-99, should set me for a very very long time on the server and at that point I'll work towards being a maxed out tank. I'll also probably have a 2nd acc that I'll work on when I'm bored of my main or double log. Will start out as a 50 att g maul pure and I will eventually turn into a 60 att piety acc.

A great thing about this is you don't NEED to be maxed or near maxed stats to compete, train for a month or so and go pk with 50 att 70 str and you will probably still be able to ko people quite easily as shark will be expensive to pk with again.

I'll probably stay a level 3 and get all the skills req'd for most quests and then decide what sort of pking account I'll make it

That seems a great idea....until you realize that without bots it will be a PAIN to get all the pure essence you need :P

My plans (if I happen to play it, still not sure):

- Train skills for majority of quests: xp and rewards are useful
- Gathering skills and SAVE materials. This is because people won't have money to buy 99 buyables in the first months, so might stock loads of it (or use it myself, example fish to 99 cooking)
- Train slayer after I've made some skilling for the drops, at least so I can farm aberrant specters and get herb seeds for farming.

My plans just don't include the bots, I have no idea how they will work out in the server, but one thing is for sure: spots will be eventually full since we won't have as many worlds I guess. And likely no anti-bot modern tech.

I'll most likely be looking into training a lot of combat because that's what really stood apart from most of the content that a bit different than current Runescape. Also, I'm looking forward to seeing that old animation of Mining. Very nostalgic for me :-D

I'll probably end up Slaying. Maybe make it a pure, but all the while Slaying for stats. Hopefully be among the first for whips. :)

I won't be starting again (must prepare for thumbs down). The first time i quit the game was in 2007 as i found it dull and out dated then having to start from scratch in a system i disliked 5.5 years ago is well pointless.

Enjoy your system that was outdated at the time 5.5 years later.

I wonder who is going to be the new Bluerose13x. It will be an interesting economy.. that's for sure. Much like when Slayer was first released and whips were hot crap. No-one had them and not many had ever seen one. One thing is for sure though -- many will experience the good old days of training with a Dragon Scimi or Dlong haha.. Good thing is alot of the players don't know jackshizzle about the old Runescape and won't know where to go to train. Muahahahhaha!!! Training combat was much different back then... love it.

I will probably be a combat geek. Try to get the highest level possible like I did way back in 04-05 lol. Back when being a high level was an actual term that mattered and even seeing a 120+ was rare and amazing. Love those days.

Oh whatever, no point in hiding it. Since it's going to be probably several months before anyone comes close to 80 crafting, I plan on getting a little agility, 60 mage, then grinding straight to 83 hunter for d imps, ninjas, and magpies. I imagine that to be the fastest way to get quite a bit of stuff like glories flowing into the economy and if you're the first to get them, you make the prices. Might try a little construction to get toy mice since this is before they were nerfed.
