Man it sure was fun when I had to mine my own smithing ores, and when cutting willows were a huge accomplishment, and it sure was exciting when I was finally able to enter the mining guild and gasped at the huge amount of coal all over the place."

The title probably, gave you an inkling on what I'm going to talk about.
I'm asking you to take a simple test. Think back for a while, when you were a low leveled player, how it felt when you upgraded to Rune Scimitar?
Or when you pked your first kill?
Or when you got the message "You can now cut yew trees".
Now compare it to today.
What do you do if -
You get upgraded to use a GodSword?
You pk someone?
You raised a mining level so you can mine rune?
Yes, the answer you'll say is that you were equally happy. But, search inside you, and get that answer, and it will come involuntarily from your mouth - You definitely had more fun when you were a low leveled.
Everything was new, you kept discovering something. Now, its only a burden. We train to kill better at God Wars, to race our friends but not for personal satisfaction! I definitely felt happier when I reached 40 strength than when I reached 90. Maybe 99 will be a different story?
This is a game. It exists so that people may enjoy themselves. Once that is forgotten, it becomes nothing more than a chore for earning respect with people that you will probably never meet.

Exactly as his words. Probably a bit more.
Isn't this the reason we make secondary accounts? Just to get back some fun?
I had trained my account with so much fun, and had a main goal of completing Dragon Slayer. Each day, I enjoyed my work. The day I finished Dragon Slayer, I felt as the King of the World!
But today, even after completing hard quests that are far more rewarding than Dragon Slayer, after achieving levels far more better than 40 strength, , it fails to rekindle that old, smouldering flames of joy inside me, that once used to flare up quickly.
Yeah man... i feel just like you , i remember when i bought my full mithril and 2h at runescape classic... i felt so powerful. But then i got pked in wildy and lost it .
Thanks for reminding me of the good ol' times Shalaj ...
