Howdy folks! I'm new here.

I haven't played OSRS(RS2) since around 2004. Back then I bought a gf and she ended up  scamming me by offering to gold trim my black armor. Heartbroken, I quit soon thereafter.

With this whole pandemic situation, I needed a game to pass the time with. I saw some ruinescape news on reddit and was delighted to see that the game still has a huge following. So I booted it up about a month ago, typed in my credit card information, and set off in lumbridge for the giant nostalgia-fest.

I'm loving it so far, but with the pandemic and the lack of social interaction myself and most people are dealing with, I thought it'd be nice to join a clan. I've been in the CC for a day or so now and am impressed at how cool everyone is,  so I've decided to join the offsite in hopes of becoming a member.

Thanks for being so welcoming!

Welcome Moo!

Wow, 2004 is quite some time ago. I'm glad you've decided to give the game another chance. The game can be a bit tricky in that there is so much to do that you don't know where to start. Being in a cc has helped give me inspiration for my goals and motivation to complete them. It's wonderful to play the game and always be "around" other people to socialise with.

Hope to see you soon Smile

Welcome! It's awesome to see this nostalgic game still have such a huge following.

Your story about being scammed in 2004 is peak Runescape, made me chuckle a bit, haha.

I also recently came back to the game and there are *a lot* of newer updates that didn't exist back then. It's a little bit of a learning curve, but the new(er) content is quite interesting. Looking forward to seeing ya in the CC!

Hey Moomoo(moo?). Welcome to the offsite. The game's still going as strong as ever, as I'm sure you've noticed since you came back. There's still plenty of collective nostalgia for what the game used to be, but things have changed pretty noticeably since when we were kids. For the better, if you ask me! It's holding my attention like it never used to back in the day.

And yeah, having a clan chat to hang out in is a huge improvement over playing solo. I don't really know how I ever managed back in the day. Our Discord community is great as well. Nice to see you've already found your way there Smile

What are your in-game goals looking like? Having something specific to work toward when you're first starting out is a great help. Barrows gloves and the Quest Point Cape are two pretty solid goals, for example.

See ya in the CC!

Hi moo! I'm new to the clan but not to RuneScape. I've been playing since 2006 but you've been playing even longer than I have - 2004! While I wasn't scammed by an offer for gold trimmed black armor, I was killed by a bear on the way from Lumbridge to Varrock and lost my newbie items so I can relate to the heartbreak nostalgia of the game. Wink It's great to see players coming back to the game after all these years. Smile

As for goals, I think going for QPC first thing is a smart thing to do. Since you can knock out the QPC and get XP for all the skills at the same time, I've been going for that. However, I've been slacking due to lack of motivation. Just finished MM1 and Lunar Diplomacy so I've been doing some RC at the Ourania Altar.

Hey bud, have to say I love the name haha! Welcome back to the game and welcome to OSRS Advice Smile

Looks like you've already had a really nice and warm welcome so I don't pester you with any useful links or repeat information but I just have to say that I completely echo as previously mentioned by some others how awesome it is to see players who started their original RS journeys many moons ago making a return to the game and choosing to join our clan as their little in-game community!

Wishing you all the best on whatever short or long-term goals you may have your eyes set on! It can definitely be overwhelming making a new account with so much to do but just make sure you're having fun and the goals will follow suit Smile PM is always on if you need anything too so don't hesitate to add me in-game and send me a message if you ever need anything or just want to say hey! Until then, take care, stay safe and hopefully speak to you soon.

Best,
Mitch

Hey moo!

Anytime someone mentions how they used to play Runescape pre 2006 gives me memories of how I used to wake up at 6am before school everyday to play Runescape when I was a kiddo Razz

A lot has changed since then in the game, and I'm sure you'll enjoy learning the new additions to the game. And, we will always be along for the ride to help Smile
