Downloading the dedicated customer for Old School Runescape (I was shocked to learn you are also required to download software to perform this iteration of Runescape), left my jaw drop buy RS gold. Old School Runescape came about when Jagex asked the community when the developer should launch a backup copy of this game from 2007 and put it on a different development branch. I'm so thankful the community agreed, since this is exactly what I was cravings.

The images remain exactly the same, while the UI was improved. The very best part of Old School Runescape is the development procedure. The group shoots out surveys to find out what gamers wish to be added to the game, and ideas need 75 percent approval to be selected.

This is an excellent way of doing things and guarantees that players can mold the game into the MMORPG they desire.

If you have been holding off revisiting the game, or have yet to give it a try, I strongly recommend you do so -- only remember Old School Runescape, that will be for people who seek a more timeless experience.Now, if you'll excuse me, I must travel afar and start building my Hunter to create some significant money.

Old School Runescape, the proudly antiquated version of Runescape that still looks and performs like the game I snapped innumerable hours into when I actually should've been studying, is obtaining a raid. A fantastic raid requires good rewards, therefore when the Theatre of Blood was announced late last year, players were not able to see exactly what clearing the multi-man challenge would earn them. Jagex reacted with Justicar armor, a brand new best-in-slot armor place (above). There was one little problem: gamers totally hated it.

In fact, they hated it so much , for months, the Old School community dogpiled the horn on the 2007scape subreddit and memed it to hell and backagain. They memed on it so hard that Jagex is now totally altering the armor's design. Virtually all of Old School Runescape's updates undergo participant polls, but this is the first time a suit of armor was forged in a fire of memes.

The irony is that while players loathed the'closing' armor shown earlier this season, they loved the prototypes revealed while the raid was announced. Originally, the Justicar armor was part of a trio of new armor sets, West informs me, but as the Theatre of Blood went from vague concept to actual material, the armor shifted with it. Players said there was sufficient DPS gear but insufficient tank gear, so it was narrowed down to just one armor set. And if they were just going to use one set, Jagex guessed they might also create a new one based on the armor worn by the raid's huge poor.

"We believed changing it a bit  made sense," West says,"but players weren't quite on board with all the original proposal we shared stream. And then, well, Reddit went wild."

The memes came hard and fast. Others thought the new armor did not seem tanky enough and generously provided a few alternatives, with some calling for a more drastic redesign.

It got so bad that a few players began to seriously believe a meme that the upgraded armor was by another artist, and that the artist who made the prototypes had abandoned Jagex. But then something amazing happened. Even as memes blotted out the sun, slowly but surely serious suggestions started to glow through. It began with primitive Photoshop jobs, but shortly proper examples and fan art started to crop up. Players rallied around the idea of a milder, blessed armor set motivated by the Runescape god Saradomin, so that they moved back into West's prototype layouts and made a few adjustments.

And after that, a hero  OSRS gold emerged: legend_arts, a gifted and well-known Runescape fan artist. Driven from the memes and inspired by elements of West's designs and other players' suggestions, legend_arts created a hybrid armor design so good it not merely silenced the memes, it captured the attention of West himself.
