Do you remember the old days of rs?

Recommended Posts

Hey, just came back from a 3 year old runescape break. Quitted when my old account got banned but after some years i missed rs agian and created a new account for soon 2 months ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got kinda stun when i saw how much rs has changed and how much the game has grow. When i first started play rs there only was 4 servers, all US. Now its over 130 servers all over the world.

 

 

 

I also found out how much rare items are worth now, back in the old days high lvl gave party hats for free to low lvls just to be nice and becource they missed the drop. I have a hard time finding out that would happend now.

 

 

 

Another kinda fun story is that everyone that verbal abuse the chat system got teleportet to a black room and there Paul himself was waiting for you, and have a talk with you about right and wrong :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well what i really wana find out is if people remember or even heard of the old legends that dosent play anymore but there name should live forever. Number one must be zonghui that i hope everyone, even new players heard of.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, do you remember some old players that should live forever? name them :) Or just tell some storys that you think new players that never been playing rsc found kinda fun to read, and know how it was at the old days of runescape classic.

Wow, i'm amazed that such early players are still around. With that memory you mentioned, i assumed you have already started playing runescape at around 2000. Very early RSC. Unfortunately, most of the famous people from early rsc would probably have quit and be forgotten already. The earliest memory i had was the "5 class" system that was available when players first started and the awesome prayer paralyse monster. i was never a member though, would be cool to see worldwide dueling. ::'

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I joined runescape at about 2002 btw :P


Strangely with WotLK so near, I wished I could delay it a bit to push through that last TBC content in MH/BT :'(.

I started back in Classic about 5-6 years ago. I wasn't really into the game that much then, but still remember a few details.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No banks, no visible rock ores, manual item noting, duelling etc... the game has come on so much. :)

l6vi (he came back)











 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

L6vi came back only for a couple of weeks at the end of RSC(Few months before RS2), he attended a few wars, just hang around and didn't do much.

 

 

 

He got bored really quick again and gave away his account.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now the account has a 3rd user already. The real L6vi has not played runescape for YEARS!

I started doing quests again after longer break...i quit before runecrafting so i did rune mysteries about 2 weeks ago.

 

 

 

I also did f2p and p2p quests with my noob recently...ive done them multiple times in rsc but i noticed some were changed enough from rsc that i needed to look guides to complete them.

 

 

 

I was trying to do Sheep Herder in rs2 and it really makes me mad...i gave up after 1 sheep...i remember how annoying its in rsc but its nothing compared to rs2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So far only players ive seen in game playing now that started early 2001 are Lady Lynda, G Bub, Sorceress, Glove, Arsenes, Bookofnod.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I dont start exp racing im just to do quests and try things around im explorer now...im also planning to go back to RSC since i have access there also.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My rs name is M Oldfield but in rs2 im noob...i dont know what is barrows, dds, guthix etc because i grew in different game...in rsc im more like in home but acheving there something isnt anything anymore, it looks ghost town.

Theres still a few of us rscers out there 8-) The days when there wasnt a chat filter, mining was the way to make money, i remember mining iron and selling it to try and buy a rune batte. Back then rune wasnt cheap either :lol:

I forgot about first chat filter they added...it must be funniest day in whole RS history ever...every thing you said in game turned out into "in game" words...i havent laughed so much in rs ever than i did then.

 

 

 

ppl didnt understand each other anymore...it was like you said something and it turned out as "other language"...it was complete chaos lol and that day made me add closest friends in rs in messenger list since we all thought it was permament.

 

 

 

I regret i didnt store screenies from that day it was alot of fun to try out all dirty words how they came out in game...and laugh my "bucket" off :P

I started back in April 02, I wish i took more pics on rsc... though i do have 1 stat pic, but from late rsc. I did a lot of fishing too, back then it was much harder, and the big deal about the fishing guild was the whole 1 click lob fishing thing. My final fishing level was 80, and it was pretty much my only money maker (I was so poor back then :x )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As for other memories... i remember when you could pick a 'class' (adventurer... would get like a bronze axe, wizard... would get like some runes, archer.. .some arrows, and so on), r2h's costing about a million (a LOT back then), i remember tks being the number 1 overall for a while, me making a huge deal over dragon axes and dragon ammies when I first became a member, people getting scammed when dragon long/dragon axe looked like bronze stuff, a bug where a zamorak mage or whatever would appear in lumbridge by the castle, some people died, herbLAW, cheap items which are 'the rares' now, the mask and santa drops, people with dragon meds were either rich or lucky, the complaint over fatigue, and RS just being harder to level in as a whole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I could mention even more memories too... RSC was a pretty cool game.

Cav might of been one of the most persuasive people that I had ever come across. He managed to convince the entire rs community that he only autoed in order to identify other autoers :lol: :) The funnier part was that so many people forgot about all the accusations of him autoing


The world would be a whole lot better if little green men in UFO's came down to earth to abduct rednecks.

I do indeed remember as far as when all the graphic updates for lumbridge, sarim and falador did not exist; robe bottoms and skirts were very large; 2h swords were held the same as a longsword and female characters looked for the most part, the same as a male character.
