RuneScape can be played extensively, but it can also be a great relaxing experience, as many players spend their hours using the more AFK aspects of the game and making progress in the second screen while engaging in other activities, such as watching a television show, shopping, or even working. Whether you’re a veteran player or a newcomer to the game, here are the top 7 things you might not yet know about Runescape:
RuneScape 3 is an excellent game to play.
The community is generally less toxic than some of today’s MMORPGs. Runescape was one of the first MMORPGs and many current players have played for several years, and veterans are kept alive by their sense of belongingness and familiarity.
Dying and failing at a quest isn’t a big deal, and it will pay off in the long run if you stick with it.
Reclaiming items after death will result in a nominal return fee, depending on a variety of factors. Values are divided into three categories: saved value, total cost to save, and sacrificed item value. Saved item value and sacrificed item value are generally small percentages of the total value of a given item that decrease as the item’s value increases. However, some items, such as the Dragon Rider amulet and Asylum surgeon ring, have fixed item values and cost the same to replace through Death or their original source.
Items with a value of up to 10,000 coins cost 15% to save and 60% to sacrifice. Items worth more than 10,000 coins have a decreasing percentage to save, peaking at 0.5 percent for items worth more than ten million coins. All prices are rounded to the nearest dollar. The smallest amount that can be reclaimed is one coin. The cost of sacrifice is always four times the final value of reclaim.
The color of an item’s name indicates whether it is a free-to-play item or a member’s item.
As of the 31st of January 2012, the names of items have been color coded to indicate whether they are member items or not. Items for members are orange, while items for non-members are light blue.
Similarly, if you right-click something in the world, it will have a blue name. Yellow is assigned to NPCs. In most games, red dots indicate enemies. Don’t waste too much time avoiding what turns out to be dropped items.
You can note your farming produce by using it on the tool leprechaun.
You could actually store compost in the leprechauns and then pay them to auto-use it on your patches til post-99 farming. Giving the compost to 1 leprechaun will allow all of them to do it, and they will all use it if it’s in the storage, you just have to make sure to pay in gold pieces (GP).
Nowadays, it’s difficult to find an MMORPG that doesn’t have a version of player housing, and RuneScape is no exception. Player housing has been present in both Old School RuneScape and RuneScape 3. A player can make their homes more comfortable by decorating them however they see fit, but decoration is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this concept. Players can add rooms, change the layout of their home, and construct a variety of useful installations, such as altars. The Jagex RuneScape team decided to expand on this concept by adding player-owned farms.
The master farming outfit allows you to use rapid growth twice per patch.
To obtain the master farmer outfit, you must first meet certain requirements. It cannot be given to just anyone, as with any badge of honor or, in this case, hard labor. You must have level 80 farming and level 20 invention to be eligible to claim this outfit. To collect the fragments required to make this outfit, you must be at least level 70 in farming. The higher your farming level, the faster you’ll be able to obtain all 54k master farmer fragments.
Once you’ve collected all of the master farmer fragments, you can buy blueprints for the master farmer outfit from Granny Potterington and then craft it at an invention workbench at level 80 farming and level 20 invention. You will notice something else after crafting and equipping the master farmer outfit. You will not only look like a highly revered master farmer who is a pillar of the community, but you will also notice something else. The Master Farmer outfit isn’t just for show and to give you bragging rights. That something else refers to the significant benefits you receive as a result of owning the outfit.
If you are a few levels below the requirement or simply want to become a farming powerhouse with level 99+ farming and get the master farmer outfit in a matter of hours, you can always buy some RuneScape gold and get all the tools and materials you need.
Smoking kills gives double slayer points.
To kill the skeletons in the first room of each path in Catolax’s tomb, maging or ranging equipment can be brought. You can, however, continue to explore the tomb without killing them.
When you come across the group of archaeologists on the plateau, go west over a low wall and tie a rope to a rock. This allows you to use it as a shortcut between the Agility Pyramid’s south-eastern corner and the plateau at any time later, but keep in mind that you’ll have to walk through a crowd of Mummies (Level 125) capable of dealing up to 240 damage. This shortcut can be used for this quest if you already have it.
You can use a small spring next to the archaeologists. To end the fight faster when fighting the Banshee Mistress, save any special attacks your weapon may have for after the Insectoid assassins have begun attacking you. If the Spirits of Elid are completed, it helps you to pray before fighting against the Banshee mistress, in the Elid statue in Nardah. The shrine restored your points of prayer and lifted your LP above it (although it goes down to normal with time).
After searching for the slayer rewards, you have access to them, which enable the purchase of new items for Slayer, learn how to create slayer items and even stop the slayer masters.
Always spend your gold.
Money sitting idly in your money pouch isn’t really helping your account unless you’re specifically saving for a goal or an item. Some people are unaware that you can buy and sell Runescape gold, and many people do. You will have more fun playing if you are wealthy in-game, whether you are an experienced player or a newcomer.
If you’re having difficulty completing certain minigames due to your equipment, or you keep dying during boss fights, purchasing gold will allow you to purchase the equipment you’ve always wanted but never had.
Money also generates money. You can invest the gold you earn at Grand Exchange by purchasing gear for a specific boss and killing it for profit, or you can try your luck at the duel arena and earn more Runescape gold than you ever imagined.
Certain skilling methods necessitate having a sizable cash stack. These methods provide faster experience rates, allowing you to accomplish more in the same amount of time. Furthermore, for skills such as Construction, you will need to invest some money in order to reap all of the benefits and convenience that this skill provides.
You can become a member of Runescape in a few different ways. It is done by purchasing a membership on the Runescape website or by purchasing a bond. A bond can also be purchased directly from Runescape; however, it is far more cost effective to purchase OSRS Gold and then purchase the bond in game, or buy OSRS Accounts. You will save a lot of money this way.
