I pose a challenge to you /v/ermin.
Name a better MMORPG than OSRS.
You can't
>>
thats like being the least smelly piece of dogshit
>>
>>598937486
While I agree that 99% of MMORPGs are pure dogshit, you're wrong friend.
OSRS on its own has SOVL. It's, quite frankly, so good that it's a bit unfair to even call it an MMORPG.
It's something else.
Something different.
Something pure.

OSRS is fucking fantastic. The quests are probably the best I've seen in an MMO with actual puzzles in them, the grind is surprisingly addicting with a constant, steady stream of unlocks, the music is endearing while also being genuinely catchy, and the world is awesome to explore with how many little nooks you can find with actually valuable loot and enemy variety.

But I can't play it anymore. I just fucking can't. I can't deal with how goddamn slow player movement and navigation is. I understand the slower pace makes it where you take the world in more and can't just speed past everything. Hell, it gives plenty of value to leveling up your Agility so that you can sprint longer. But holy shit, even with a bunch of teleportation methods and quest items, it's just so fucking slow. It's ironic because the further you get into the game, the more methods you have of instantly teleporting to places. But the further you get into the game, the more quests ask you to constantly backtrack across the entire world. Areas you have to grind in at later levels are, understandably, even farther out. And the world is just fucking massive, so you're going to be just slow walking everywhere. Add to it all, Agility is by far one of the most boring skills to level up since you spend so much of it just constantly clicking. And not even click once and wait, but click very specific spots in the environment and hope you don't fall and have to restart.

If there was an infinite sprint I probably would play that shit to this day. Just have it turn off if you get into combat or enter areas where sprint would help you avoid shit. But as it stands, I just can't deal with the downtime. Maybe the older I get, the more instant gratification I want. But I just can't deal with the 5+ minute treks of mindless walking, then a few seconds of running, then back to walking.

Limiting running, inventory space and item stacking is what makes OSRS genius.

>>
>>598939920
It may keep it alive, but that doesn't make it fun. Plenty of MMOs put in artificial limitations to extend the player experience, which then also makes those MMOs shit. I'm fine with limited inventory and item stacking. That makes for more strategic planning of what you bring to important fights, quest puzzles, and creates a sense of danger since you can lose most of it upon death. Limited running just feels like an inconvenience purely to justify Agility grinding and otherwise try to "immerse" players more. Which the game is already plenty immersive, and Agility would still have importance if your sprint was only limited in combat situations/dungeons.

Like I said, it's probably just me, but I just couldn't deal with the downtime. There's just so much time spent mindlessly walking from place to place, especially for quests that will send you from one side of the world to another, then back again. Couldn't deal with it at a certain point. It became too noticeable the more the game expanded and I needed to go further out to level skills.

Yup. It's nice to run this simple autopilot shit on a second monitor while being productive. The OSRS grind makes the real life grind far more tolerable.
>>
>>598939790
The lack of immediate instant gratification is part of why the game works, and part of how the economy works, too. Faster progress costs more money (or frontloaded time) because the resources needed for it are harder to acquire. Fundamental pillar.

Runescape in general was bottled lightning. It's hard to describe just how good the design fundamentals are, and it's hard to watch what became of them twenty years later, because the greatest tragedy of Runescape is that the end is built into the beginning. By necessity it cannot continue to be supported without moving away from what made it good in the first place, because following the typical MMO model of just increasing the numbers over time doesn't work for Runescape at all, and the only other way to expand it (and it needs to expand, for it is an MMO) is to just make everything wider, which isn't a long-term solution either. Introducing new training methods requires that they be competitive with the old training methods, so that's just accelerating the problem, and the only reward they could really give was new training methods, or ways to get money to use faster training methods.

Can't expand it without making it worse. Can't just trap it in amber without letting it slowly die.

What I loved about Runescape is the sandbox-y feel it had (back in 2007-2010 at least). So many of us noobs back then never seriously put time into skilling, we just kinda explored the world and did random stuff like hanging out with friends or doing Castle Wars for fun, some Clan Wars, doing quests here and there, and just hanging out. The popularity of metagaming now kinda blows me away. It was always there but very few people used to do it. Now it's like, "Dude why are you using such an inefficient method of leveling? Everyone already knows X is the best way".

I guess it's because we're adults now and the game is old. And the high % of people metagaming actually lessens how fun it is to play it any other way. The game just isn't immersive as a world when everyone acts like robots following a wiki. So I understand it even if I don't like it.
>>
>>598944165
>Everyone else is metagaming
>This means I also have to do it
Man, my dumb ass is here mining silver and making holy symbols to lvl up to 40 crafting so I can get access to the crafting guild.
>>
>>598944165
That's just basic accelerationism. I'm surprised it took so long to reach this point, honestly. People were always moving towards efficient ways to play, but for some reason RS managed to resist it for longer than most.

The sheer breadth of options available for players probably helped a lot, and things like Slayer and quests which basically force you to do varied things or locked specific activities behind a thousand other activities also kept player autism in check.

Age was certainly a factor, too. Perhaps even general social outlook. 2007 was a bright time for most of western society, then the 2008 market crash happened and things became very bleak, very quickly.
>>
>>598944340
It doesn't mean you have to do it, but it makes it less fun when no one else is doing it. A lot of the fun comes from social interaction yet when few people play this way your chance to do this falls.

But ultimately I think the main problem for not only this but MMOs in general is the sense that worlds in MMOs now are "solved" while there used to be a mystery and wonder to them in the past. Maybe this is different for some people, but it's a real thing to me. The game feels totally different now

I'd argue with the introduction of the bowfa and with the growing realisation that since there's so many autists dedicated to getting 200m xp/all pets/players focusing on an individual boss's hiscore that metagaming doesn't have a place in OSRS anymore. There's so many autistic NEET's playing the game for 16+ hours a day there's nothing to compete for. I've enjoyed playing an ironmeme, getting the bowfa, and now I can do whatever content I want in the game and it feels like more of a sandbox than ever

In comparison to RS3?
OSRS is like an MMORPG time capsule, from a time when MMORPGs were actually good, that's still massively played.
It's good for all the reasons modern MMORPGs are bad.
If there is one negative to it, it's that it is a solved game, and has been for a while now. This would have killed other MMORPGs (like WoW Classic), fortunately OSRS is so grindy that if you did 99 everything, even if you take a break, you will come back to it eventually.
Sunk cost fallacy and all that.

Its something real chill about zooming out being in the osrs view and just clicking to interact as oppose to wasd and mouse click to interact. Oh perhaps its because one has you move with a button click and the other requires 2 hands..

I recently started iron man, I enjoyed it, but then I started to wonder whats gonna happen when I want to play with friends, so i recovered an old account since 2004 and now i play like an iron man but can still buy bonds.

I got 40 quests to go, I did them all without a quest guide. I like some of the new minigames they added but I feel like they also removed the point of the skill since minigames dont cost gold and give you almost as much xp. You even get gold by doing them. Im looking at wintertodt and tempeross.

That being said, its a good adventure/grind game if you dont follow guides.

Sailing:
A new area of a vast ocean populated with many small islands. While you're out in the outer rim ocean you can't teleport by any means you must sail from location to location. These islands have raw mats that you collect with your gathering skills and store them in your ship's expanded inventory, while carrying the mats you can't teleport, they can't be stored in your normal bank, they all drop on death. You must ferry those mats to other islands to use with your production skills.

The quickest paths from gathering islands to production islands cut through wilderness pvp areas. The most bountiful islands are also in the wilderness.

While traveling you can be attacked by npc pirates in safe areas, or real players in the wilderness. The further out you go the more dangerous it gets, but the higher the level of mats get, think EVE security levels. Pirates will attempt to disable your ship with cannons and other tactics, then board you to engage in direct combat.

Sailing skill determines what tier ships you can sail and how many upgrade points you can use to fit upgrades on a ship, like expanded cargo hold, cannons, faster sails, etc.

Because they didn't create content in zones to, even old areas are relatively populated because you almost always have a reason to go to some place at any level

ESO would be a lot better if it weren't for the theme park design and group questing being shit. I can kinda forgive the former since, compared to others that try to hide it, the game explicitly leans into being a single player adventure game that has a living world (at least as far as the general overworld is concerned), but the latter is just shameful. Despite the aforementioned single-player design, they clearly want you to take your friends along as a trio, and even if they only exist as player-controlled companions, there's more they could do to make the experience smoother.

It's disgusting that it's been 11 years since SWTOR came out, and that lackluster piece of shit manages to still be one of the best options for group questing, solely because it actually pulls people into dialogue with you. Even when ESO lets you progress quest steps together when nearby, it's basically EYE-tier with how in the dark you'll all be if you don't all manually join in.

Almost, it would all be connected to the main map. You could bring items from the ocean to any place in Runescape, so you could go to a special fishing area in the outer rim, then sail across the ocean to the special range to cook said fish, then you sail all the way back to the port closest to Edgeville run to the bank (you can't teleport with the fish in your inventory) all the way to Edgeville then sell the absolute best food to pvpers for a premium price.

All of the above. Resources aren't that bad if you aren't an ironman, though. Lots of people have surplus you can buy through the infinite item dispenser that calls itself the Grand Exchange.
The level grind won't seem bad at first, though. The experience curve is designed to hook you and fuck you.

Slayer is only slow if you're trying to grind it specifically. If you train it while also levelling your combat stats / hunting drops it's fine.

They're based on your enemy's combat level. If you're doing basilisks or trolls you'll get very few, but gargoyles/black demons/nechryaels/hellhounds and such will spam them. You can expect 2-5ish per task for the higher levelled enemies.

It requires dozens of hours of other grinds and quests. Yes, the upgrade for ferocious gloves takes a tradeable drop to craft, but you still must earn it with completing hard quests from the get go
you're entire argument thus far is analogous to saying "oh well if you could paint the infernal cape purple with purple dye you can buy of the GE, then the infernal cape is a tradeable BiS item"

Well by untradeable I assumed we meant "Not being able to be traded" like a fire cape or a mage cape. since those are... not... able to be traded?

Like if i can trade you for a primordial stone, that makes that stone tradeable. So i can just trade for what i need to make primordial boots.

I cannot trade you for a vorkath head, so that makes it untradeable. So i canot just trade for what i need to make an assembler.
Right?

So if i can trade for hydra leather that makes ferocious gloves: ???

>>598939790
>But I can't play it anymore. I just fucking can't. I can't deal with how goddamn slow player movement and navigation is

I've never seen anyone misunderstand a game more than this post. RS starts with very teleport and travel options, but the most obtainable goals out the early game should be teleport options. Rings of dueling, amulet of glory, ring of wealth all offer fantastic teleports and are all basically free. The quests which unlock teleports all pretty easy to do. Fairy rings, spirit trees, and that zeah book are pretty low level. Teleports are clearly designed as one of the most clear milestones in account progression, which is why they are in everything from just magic levels, achievement diaries, quests, and just outright buying them from construction or the unlimited crystal teleport.

By the time you enter the mid game you should have easy to access to basically every teleport, and you should begin to build up your POH with jewelry boxes, mounted glories, and teleports from specific spellbooks that are useful before you can just make a nexus with everything (e.g., kharil's teleport).

>>598984373
ferocious gloves requires hydra leather AND completion of DSII

>>598986214
mid game is the worst.

Early game is fun because fast levels and dopamine, end game has a variety of bosses from chill and AFK to mechanically intensive and legitimately challenging. Mid game is just grinding out stats and gold to prepare for endgame.

Only argument for mid game is that you'll be finishing up your quests, and there are some good quests to be had, but that's just a fraction of the time you'll spending.

mid game quests are god tier and you slowly get to explore new areas of the map with increasingly difficult enemies

What are you doing

Farming and hunter are both pretty chill. Just do a couple bird house runs each day for hunter, and you'll probably hit level 60 in a few weeks. Don't worry about hitting the 50 mark, I just do one at the start and end of each day. Farming is incredibly useful, and herb runs are basically the best money maker in the game until end game bossing.
>>
>>598986813
Farming is one of the easiest 99s in the game and will become insanely profitable 70+ when planting herbs.
Hunter is also insanely easy after they added birdhouses but it only gets you to 60 before it crashes in speed.

You could also do cooking, cheap 99 and pretty fast

Yeah, that's reasonable advice. I did all my combat training with slayer from level 1, and the shit like lizard tasks are just terrible. With nieve unlocked though the tasks are much better.

I'd only recommend cooking for your first 99 if you really just want a 99. Outside of that, it's pretty useful. It is cheap and fast, but it is still level 99 in a skill, and time you could have invested somewhere else. Also, untrimmed cooking cape is easily the most embarrassing skill cape in the game.

Anon please. You know that you can get more skilling supplies through PvE than through actual skilling. Woodcutting, fishing, herblore, all that is meaningless when PvE has far bigger supplies of logs, fish and herbs than actual skills.

If you need to level your cooking/herblore you're going to buy the supplies from GE
If you want money you'll do PvE
I miss woodcutting, it was so fun and relaxing. But there is no way to WC magic logs when PvE is dozens of times more rewarding (while rewarding MORE LOGS in the process)
Skilling only serves as an obstacle to access more content (through quests usually)

I would be fine with drastic changes to OSRS if they would just put in "museum" style worlds that act as time capsules for the game as it was at a certain time. I was overjoyed when they finally opened up RSC to members again like 5 years ago and I liked the Rune1 private server when it was a thing (it was an early build of old RS2 with old barb village, old Varrock, etc.) All they would need to do is throw up a disclaimer saying "hey this is the old version of the game that won't be updated, including for security" and then put issues like the crystal chest issue in RSC on the back back burner. They've already proven that they can store separate player profiles for different world types like Deadman, so it's not even a technical challenge. I just want my autistic nostalgia.
>inb4 no backup
I call horseshit. Rune1 proved that the assets for older versions are floating out there somewhere.

>>
>>598995126
I am not saying you would do these skills for supplies because the RNG would not allow that.
I am saying that PvE brings more skilling supplies to the economy than actual skilling.
And that skilling must serve a purpose. You skill either because you are trying to make money, or because you are trying to reach a milestone to unlock more content. But in modern OSRS money is not an option anymore because PVE CRASHED SKILLING PROFIT
