Ah, Runescape. If you’ve never heard of that before, time to crawl out from under that rock, because you’ve been missing out on the internet’s #1 free mass-multiplayer online role playing game.
Get thrown into the middle of the fantasy world of Gielinor, full of warring tribes with turbulent histories, a land where warriors, wizards, and monsters await to befriend or fight you. Create a character, and you immediately find yourself in a rich world with thousands of other players who are trying to survive, make a name for themselves, or become legends. Will you be a fierce and lethal warrior or a wielder of ancient arcane magic? Perhaps you’ll join the Thieves Guild or drown yourself in scholarly pursuits- or even some hybrid of them all. After all, why not?
How do I survive in this inhospitable world?
Coins, gold, pieces, or “Lovely money!"- RS gold is the most basic and widely used form of currency in Runescape. You need it to purchase items in the general store, trade up your weapons and armor, and progress through various quests throughout the game. You can earn gold by carrying out dangerous quests for villagers, wizards, and other non-playing characters in Gielinor. Gold is also earned through selling various items you can find or harvest throughout the land, such as mining, fishing, or chopping logs. You can even increase the value of these materials by crafting them into items, cooking them, or smithing them into high value pieces. There may be new ways of earning gold soon, as Runescape is known for constantly adding to their gameplay.
What does Runescape have, what will it have, and why do I want it?
Runescape has been live for over a decade and still manages to attract thousands of players, new and old, every day to their servers. And the reason is simple: because they keep adding engaging content. Runescape constantly updates their gameplay, meaning that there’s always too much to do and it’s impossible to do everything. Beyond holiday features and special contests, Runescape continuously adds new gameplay materials. Players can engage in new storylines, craft all-new items, and many other awesome things you can’t find anywhere else. Own a farm, play your hand at Balthazar’s Big Raffle, or take a tumble in the Dragonkin Laboratory. It’s everything you didn’t know you wanted.
How do I access all these awesome possibilities?
Players have their own levels, but also various skill levels. In order to unlock special abilities, access to quests, or awesome equipment, there are base level requirements that need to be met. Throughout the world of Gielinor, there are areas where certain items are known to spawn in greater numbers, and players often spend time here to level quickly before going on adventures. You’ll know it when you see “that guy” engaging in seemingly erratic behavior. In this world, there’s often more than meets the eye. Different in-world monsters are also more likely to carry certain items or gold, and figuring out where it is has become a classic component of discovering the lay of the land in Runescape.
What else can I use RS Gold for?
Shh. Who told you that? Like we said, gold is an in-game currency for lethal weapons, earthshaking wands, indestructible armor, and gauntlets that will make any warrior north of the Kharidian desert jealous. Use it to buy mythical animal companions, buy stolen items from smugglers, and push fantasy to its logical extreme. In this world, the only limit is your imagination.
