I originally started playing RS probably around '04/05 back in high school, right up to 2012, with a break of a couple years betweeen 2009-11 - recently got the itch to start playing again but I'm utterly lost (quit right around the start of EoC I believe)

I've recovered my original "main" account, level ~105 or so with probably around a 5m bank but I'd always preferred the skilling aspect of the game to combat and have managed to recover my old level 3 account with a pretty healthy bank thanks to true rising price of rares over time and some decent levels (base of 70 in most stats). The level 3 is the one I'll most likely play with now.

My overall questions are really;

Is item-transferring allowed now or still banned? I.e. Can I move items from my unwanted "main" to my skilling account?

Is skilling still a common way of playing or are most people combat-oriented?

What's the major changes I've missed - anything post Dungeoneering I suppose, mostly with regards to skills rather than new bosses etc.?

Are people still social/happy to chat and hang out? Towards the end of my time the game got noticeably more "single player" with very little public interaction ("it's xp waste to type" >.>) or are there places people still chat and hang out?

you can transfer items without worrying about breaking the rules, Jagex removed the multi-logging rule awhile back


RS3 is majority skilling and PvM based


There has been the release of two new skills AFTER Dungeoneering, Divination and Invention


Divination is Similar to RuneCrafting, pretty easy and afkable


Invention Im not 100% certain, I quit RS3 entirely after the release of Divination


Zybez has a Clan Chat that you can hang around in, also there are multiple social clans that are about in every world, I dont think you'll have too much trouble finding one, although a vast majority of players on here now, focus solely on oldschool runescape


hope this helps

Moving this to Questions where it is better suited.


Yeah you can transfer wealth freely. Skilling is alright but roughly half to a third of the money of pvming. I think most people are more into pvm these days and only really skill seeking a pet or a 99/120 cape. There's Invention and Divination, which can help you skill a little faster with the right combinations of perks. Other than that, not too much skill-wise, assuming you know about Prifddinas.

RS3 is quite diverse in that there is really something for everyone, if you want to skill you can go for the skilling pets, 120 stats, 200m stats and there is good money to be made. On the other hand, bossing is the best money in the game, there is a multitude of bosses to choose from that all have their own tactics and methods of taking down. You can go for the completionists cape, you can go for the master quest cape if you like lore, you can do any number of things, it all depends what you want from the game.

Don't transfer yet. See if you like it first both on the low and high level account. The change is quite big to be honest.

Hi Divine welcome back,


I'm a RS3 player myself, and a lot of a skiller. Invention skill is a great new thing for returning players, changes the game a lot. You can train it while skilling too, and there are a lot of new things. 

Check out the elven city Priff, it's a great place to train some skills.


Good luck!
