Returning Player, Looking for Helpful Clan Chat/Community

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I'm considering returning to the game for my once-every-five-years run at getting back the quest cape. 

 

Quests have always been my major draw to Runescape. I first got the cape shortly after the release of While Guthix Sleeps, the first Grandmaster quest (late 2008-early 2009). I continued playing through the release of Nomad's Requiem, beat Nomad pre-EOC, and eventually left to do other things.

 

I returned late 2014 and played through the early Sixth Age quests and the release of the first half of Prifddinas. (I realize this might be really, really old history to some people but my last memory of the game is standing on the path out from the Prif bank and looking at the path end in midair because they hadn't released the second half of the city yet :D.)

 

This was post-EOC and there was a LOT to learn to get the cape back. I was basically a total noob, constantly asking in clan chats and anywhere available for answers to basic questions that you wouldn't know if you hadn't been playing consistently in recent years. For example, "What's the most efficient way to train slayer now?" "What gear should I be using?" "Which D&Ds are everyone doing for the best XP rates?"

 

I noticed some big quests have been released in the last year and figured I might show up again to try them out. I expect to have a ton of questions, though, and was hoping to find a clan chat that's tailored to that purpose. 

 

Anyone know of anything like that? Any suggestions? I think when I last returned there was a "Returning Players Guide" on this site. Links to any of that sort of content are always appreciated.

Hi Dupin, welcome back to RS! Doing some of the newer quests is certainly a nice place to start. Some of them may be quite challenging without very good combat gear (i.e. Sliske's Endgame, which I haven't gotten around to myself). Wiki has decent guides and quick guides to help you get through them. If you'd like, you could message me/check out the clan chat I run. My name in-game is "Arceuus" so feel free; I can certainly try and answer any questions you have!

 

It also may be a good idea to do some dailies such as vis wax, reselling runes/broad arrows, make sure to do (most of) your daily challenges and so forth. Caches are good if you want to train up Divination, and so on.


"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

Thanks for the tips, arceus. I think I have you added already on the "Its Arceus" account from the last time I returned to the game. 

 

I'd be interested in jumping into a clan, but may need a refresher on what's involved. IIRC it's just a bit of skilling at the citadel each week and in exchange you get an occasional exp boost, right?

Anyone have pointers on what combat gear I should be wearing? Stats and cash stack are in above screenshot. 

 

I have a whip, kyzaj, jessica sword/offhand, and a bunch of junk in bank. It looks like I sold everything tradeable when I last played.

 

What's the highest non-degradable gear right now? What do people use for slayer at my level? What's reasonably priced?
