I started two or a month before the wilderness came. I did not miss the open globe pking, wilderness pking was where it was for OSRS gold me, my primary account I had been attempting to max strength and got to the high 80’s on classic, higher degree pker’s would come and try to kill me while I was 3 iteming from the wildy, and a couple of times I really flipped on prayers and 3 hit them. Participated in a few big clan wars(I believe my clan was chaos angels? God it has been so long) in wildy, however, hate risking so much expensive stuff, so I began making pures.
And I began experimenting with a very small bit of prayer and defense for steel armor, and couldn’t hang pures of a similar battle level that had no prayer and 1 def. I was miserable when rs2 came outside, classic was the peak for me, even though rs2 was playable, there was some charm which classic had. The Pk’ing got more challenging and I didn’t feel like the game had the controls for that kind of quick paced play mode, it is a click and point game.
The player and all that nonsense is simply how long someone could invest. Im at a discord that has people that are in the runescape best way to make money top 100 of certain abilities and they literally perform 20 hours a day minimum… some do skilling contests that continue for an whole week and they sleep like maybe 8 hours the entire week. Some are others, on no sleeping drugs up by will that is competitive. When people doubted that a person cant possible play 20 to 24 hours every day for a number of days or maybe weeks… is false since they really do lol. Thats spots in games such as these.
