I started playing OSRS and man the game was more fun when I didn't know what the most efficient methods to level up were. Now it's all about tick manipulation and maximising exp/hr. Is it just that I'm old or was the game always boring?
My account is from RS2 times, so unfortunately i can talk of RS3. But its same thing on there also. Tryhard grinding and maximizing efficiency will kill all the fun on both game versions. Gotta admit that RS still is a good game.
yea I play osrs and the community is more focused on maximizing the xp and getting gains. But that's probably because we're not 11 anymore and the game is actually really fun when you know wtf you're doing.
Just don't focus on maxing xp by 3ticking and efficent paths and that bullshit. N one really does this stuff btw just a few thousand players probably Just do the faster xp methods so you can get your goal faster, there is a fuckload of grinding in this game, or really do whatever you want because in the end it doesn't matter unless you had fun.
My advice would be to layout a few goals that you can work on like completing a line of quests, getting a certain level for one of the region diaries so you can get perks, reaching a certain level, getting to fight barrows brothers, etc...
my stats btw im no shitter
they gotta bring back dungeoneering but not demolish the meta with it. it was such an easy way to train other skills when you had no GP and actually was fun. That and fist of Guthix minigame so you could train Magic easy with no cost of runes.
