Can you think of a particular update or time in the game when you were absolutely engrossed while playing runescape?


I remember when castle wars was released I was completely absorbed into the game.   Much schoolwork was put aside to play castle wars. haha.

Around 2010-2011 since my character was finally near max combat level and surprisingly maxed in a lot of other skills as well.

My memorable time was probably running into Hill Giants with random people that I just met, leading them into battle. :lol: Good times.

Probably around 2006. I was maxed out combat wise, and at that time if you were maxed out you pretty much had the game by the balls.

Surprisingly, I have fond memories of the BH craters too. Everything and anything after that was and is utter dog****.

I used to basically live at Clan Wars even though I was 60-80 combat the whole time, lol. Was crazy fun to me as a little kid. I just wanted to build my clan up and beat everyone there.

In 2007 I joined the mainstream clan world, was 17 years old and thus in high school still with near to no responsibilities, and I no-lifed RS / PKing, even solo PKing (death matching).

I have 2 moments I keep in heart:

1st one is playing Bounty hunter (the crater version) in f2p, enjoying myself a lot, playing way to much.
2nd one was when Dg came out, lovely skill and lovely to perfect.

Honestly. The time between the removal of the wilderness and when they changed multi bh into single bh (dec 07 to around march 08). Between a momentarily dead player base, multi bh being the absolute best pking experience i've ever had, abusing safe spots in gwd for easy drops and finally summoning.

Then they got rid of multi bh instead of you know having some worlds for single and some for multi clan fights for several months (until clan wars came out) in which i lost all interest in the game. Seriously was it so hard to have multi and single worlds?

I have two different ones to comment on, for two different reasons.

1. Corp Beast coming out. I was a staff member of one of Runescape's biggest pvm team's at the time, and we took Corp by the reins and camped here for close to a year and a half after release. As a clan we acquired well over 400+ sigils and I personally managed to get around 70 sigils for myself during that time. I used that money to start maxing out. I made countless friends there and honestly just had a fun time.

2. Dungeoneering release. I was in the top 100 people to get 99 Dungeoneering extremely fast after the skill came out, and was in the top 1500 to get 120. Thousands of hours of fun with people, more memories than I can care to explain, and hundreds of jokes and crazy things that happened during the rows and rows of floors we did.

Definitely would have to be 2010-2012 when I would lead VR PK trips every single day, 3 times a day to hit different clans in different timezones. A lot of school was skipped :-P

Well, the little old niche of assisting runners at the air altar over in F2P, and then crafting earth runes with FoG gloves when Fist of Guthix was filled to the brim and popular was one hell of a time. When I wasn't being crashed at the altar for various reasons, that is. :XD:
how can you get crashed at the air altar? Just wondering.

Well as you know, at higher runecrafting levels, you can make/assist people to make more runes per essence. This was abbreviated into its own lexicon. For example, at level 77-87, you could make 8 airs per essence, so you would just say "8x" and maybe your name at the altar to advertise and runners would req assist you. The courteous way to do things would be for assisters to take turns. So if someone was offering 8x assist and you were 9x, you would go run runes yourself instead of crashing them and stealing all their runners (because you could make them slightly more money), and wait your turn.Obviously, not everyone conformed to this protocol :-P. There was also some nonsense with a certain friends chat trying to monolpolize it while meanwhile I wanted to run my own clan, and I couldn't be in two places at once.

Then there were members with level 99 Runecrafting (very few people had it F2P) which was 10x and I don't know what their motive was. This was during the effigyscape era, so you could assist two people with a Runecrafting effigy and be done...or over 200 loads worth of essence to make up that same xp. I guess they just enjoyed trolling.

Suck to read, especially since your motivation was sincere. :-( I thought crashing in regards to the wilderness which confused me as neither altar is near the wilderness at all.

Yeah it was a pretty nifty exchange. We helped noobs or people playing on second accounts make money, and they helped us earn experience. Still though, I don't regret doing it and I did have plenty of good times.

When dungeoneering came out. To be honest I actually really hated the skill when it came out, but grew to love it-and to this day it's still my favorite skill.
