Y know, RS writers could learn from Arenascapes class system.... It would seriously look great for RS4 and RS3 is classless at the moment.

No. Classes are dumb. Once the class system was removed from RSC, it started to flourish. (I speak from experience - My first character was a Miner, the 2nd an Adventurer, and idr what the 3rd one was.) Class systems only work if the entire game is built around reinforcing those classes. RS is in no way structured to do just that, and it would be terrible.

 

Besides, the beauty of Runescape is that you can be anything you want. I made a new account in 2007 and I was a lvl 30 who spent 2 months skilling before I levelled up my combat.

There was never a class system in RuneScape.

 

And, what could the harm be if 99 strength calls your character Hulk or Heavyweight or whatever?

That would be fine, but that's just a bunch of titles then, not a class system. To have a class system you have to force a choice that gives certain benefits as well as some penalties.

 

I was not playing anytime near RSC, but if there was a class system back then, I wouldn't mind being filled in on the details.. :P.

My only problem with class systems are the limitations that they impose, that tend to extend to your entire account. For example, I don't mind if you could "swap" classes or what have you in game - like put on Tank mode or something to fight a boss, then switch to skilling mode to... fletch logs. That I'm down with. I guess I'm more referring to the WOW line of classes where once you choose something you're stuck as it.

That was a bit of a misnomer on my part. Runescape never had classes per se, but at first you could start out as a 'class', which would give you measly perks upon account creation - but that's where it stopped.

If you've never read http://runescapeclas...pe_Classic_Wiki before, say good bye to your Friday night. I spent a good few hours on that link when I first discovered. Remembering the "good old days". Or, should I say, remembering how much nostalgia makes those days seem good, when a lot of them were spent chasing imps that ran away from you every 4 seconds.

Anyone know what happened to the clan leader, Frostedbeast? Anyone have his contact information by chance? I want to bring another character I made into the clan... and update one of my clan ranks too.

 

Speaking of ArenaScape clans, are any clans still active?

Yes, there's a handful of players that still play.

Arenascape was the funnest thing to do along side RuneScape. Just curious, what happened with lightning or the creator of Arenascape? There were also areas in the game made by RS players. Being over a decade old it really needs to be re made.

 

Oh yea, 500 turns a day, not a mere 250. :P

Silverion pretty much dropped off the grid years ago. I believe he stopped working on the game because it was just a pet side project for him and he didn't have time to continue it. I've tried contacting him before, even by donating and leaving a message with the donation, but I never got any responses... I would love if I or someone else could buy the rights (and source code) for the game and continue it, but with no way to contact him, it's sadly just a dream :(.

 

I feel ArenaScape has a lot of potential. It's such an old game but players still log in to play it even today... 12+ years since the last time it was updated, at least shown on the update history of the game itself. A game with such a loyal following, even if it's a small one, and with all of it's unique quirks like being an outdated text-based game based off of RuneScape, has a lot of potential for further development and expansion in my opinion.

Arenascae was so much fun creating these insane stats, like 5* range 2* mage. I really miss it and everything about it. Also, there was a lot of stuff created by not just Silver. We need to get the Arenascape crew back together.

The game is still available if you want to play it. I still play a Templar with rank 2* Attack and 3* Prayer, a Marksmen with 5* Ranged, a Warlock with 6* Magic, and a Brute with 2* Defense and 3* Strength.

 

I know that a lot of the top players are Strength/HP builds... My Templar, currently rank #3 is the exception, but even then I'm falling behind. Strength/HP builds deal a ton of damage and can take quite the beating in return. It's one reason I made the Brute... I figured a Brute would counter them because they won't be dealing a ton of damage if they can't hit ;). And the Brute can still dish out the damage in return, which is required for large HP champions. The only problem is that the Brute is weak vs a lot of stuff... like Ranged and Attack builds. It will be interesting seeing if my theory is correct about Brutes countering Juggernauts and such when he actually gets to a high enough level to do so. Right now he's only level 150 so I still have quite a ways to go before I can actually put my theory into practice.

I seem to have forgotten my Login name. :(  Tried a few of my names from back then with no luck. I might just start from lvl 1 again, unless staff here can help me?

 

^ Those are some wicked stats up there too, Melos.
