It's the end of an era.

I had thought this time would come later on, when I got married, perhaps. It's happening this month.

I canceled my subscription to RuneScape. The game doesn't draw me to play anymore. The updates seem geared to things that I don't care for at all. There is another game that takes up all my time. The $5 a month fee doesn't seem low enough for me to pay without having played in the last month. $60 a year is actually too expensive for me, considering I might not play for months at a time.

Will I regret it? Maybe, but the option always exists for me to purchase cards at a local store if I think I need an RS fix. It was my first MMORPG. This site was the first place I came across (well, maybe Sal's was) to find information about my new obsession. It's actually been visited more often in the last 30 days than I have the actual RS site.

I'll always be thankful for Jagex feeding me a distraction over the past two years or so. I learned how petty some people can be and how gracious others were. I learned that working on a website doesn't mean you'll see a smaller percentage of the former, but you'll actually meet rather less of the latter. I learned that putting all your time into a game doesn't mean much when you can't really see any fruitful work at the end.

I'm moving things around to be able to enjoy myself in F2P, but I can't imagine that I'll play much if at all. I'd give things away if I had any real reason to do so. I'd actually rather "take it with me" and deprive the rest of RuneScape's newer players from that which I have. In that case, I'll be going for gold in these last few days, selling off things I can't use and trying to make space for stuff I'd like to have in the event that I do want to play here and there without a subscription. I doubt that would be the case, especially considering the lack of options for skill players in F2P. There are options, to be sure, but none of the ones that make playing worthwhile.

So that's it, I suppose. No one will be crying or missing me, of that I am certain. I imagine that if RuneScape changes their ways and goes back to quest content, I'll consider coming back. If not, then this will indeed be my final post!

Good luck RuneScapers and Tipiters!

Isn't the second one what already appears in the game as "dolmens" or stone tables?

I find it odd that some people are so sure the pray melee + mage gear works best; I mean if you look at my stats clearly my mage defence is gonna be pretty high and I near died and had to bail out 3 times with melee prayer. Yet succeeded 2nd try with mage prayer (1st time i got struck by lag).

Perhaps is a timing thing, maxed meleers down her quickly and rarely see the mage.
But lower melee she does mage sometimes when ur right beside her.


I could be wrong, but didn't something appear on the forums from a J-Mod about this being a melee preferred thing?

I quote from the FAQ (Quick find code: 15-16-417-61761843):

"Why did you choose Attack and Strength as fairly high requirements? Didn't you think of Mages or Rangers?"

Attack and strength were a continuation of the requirements from the first quest, as many of the other skill requirements were a step up from the second quest. Attack and Strength were chosen because Void Knights value them more than other forms of combat and also because the Boss battle was intended as a melee fight. You can, of course, attempt to use Mage and Ranged, but that was how it was originally designed. It isn't a slight against Mage and Ranged, it's just how things panned out this time. ~ Mod Nancy

Quests will continue to use a range of levels and skills. The quest also had a high magic level. ~ Mod Mark


So...yeah. No guide on here should recommend ranging or maging. If you had to be ridiculously high to do it, it wouldn't make much sense to put it in a guide. Those players with ridiculously high stats wouldn't be the ones that the guide was aimed at in the first place.

In all honesty, I play War of Legends more than RuneScape. I'm just about through with both.

Special event: It was a sunny afternoon and you were reclining under a tall tree, enjoying the shade and the breeze. Leaning back against the trunk, you knocked a fruit from the high branches, which fell to the ground in front of you. Suddenly hungry and without thinking, you took a bite from the fruit. You felt your body begin to change ...
