Initially you could sulk and long to get your dog that was, but soon enough you begin to notice the pet is gorgeous compared to its haggard predecessor. It does all kinds of new tricks, it’s charm and RS gold, heaps of endgame content and doesn’t have to be fed or walked often.
Where Runescape utilized to involve offering up one’s hands to hours, or even days, of grinding for piecemeal progress, today it hands out flat raises with a regularity that is hard to stomach if you can remember sinking 20 hours of continuous play into acquiring just half of the XP you need to level up.
Happy with my progress, I place an additional eight hours into fostering my skills. At this time my general impression is that buy OSRS gold has only gotten prettier and easier, which wouldn’t be enough to haul me back to its F2P clutches.
What did manage that (I begrudgingly admit) was that the amount and quality of quests to be performed in RuneScape. There’s even a quest where you take control of a seagull and use it to bomb zombie pirates with bird poo.
