Runescape is a vast land to explore with endless hours of content available. It can be easy at first to feel overwhelmed by this, so here are a few tips & tricks to keep in mind when getting started with Runescape 3.
Quest for success
Quests are full of enjoyable content as well as a gateway to opportunity. Quests unlock new content, but they also reward you with experience and, sometimes, exclusive items. Quests also provide you a sense of pathway in Runescape, allowing you to set goals for achieving requirements for new quests and completing them as you go to gain those fantastic rewards.
For a lot of higher-level content, you’ll find you need to have completed quests, and entire storylines for some of the best and most engaging content Runescape has to offer. The earlier you get a start on knocking out those quests, the better.
Each day you automatically receive a new Daily Challenge. These stack up to a total of five being held at any one time. So, although you get them daily, you don’t necessarily have to complete it the day you receive it.
The major benefit of Daily Challenges is that the challenge is tailored to your level, giving you the best possible experience gains for time spent as a reward. Not only this, but you also receive Treasure Hunter keys as well as item rewards for the tasks in which you hand-in your produced items for the challenge.
Daily Challenges are always more beneficial than just usually training that particular skill.
Utilize Double XP Events
Double XP Events are more regular in Runescape than ever before, perfect for taking advantage of. It is worth saving supplies over time to use on Double XP Events as you’ll stretch their value further. This will save you money on the expensive skills and time on those tedious skills. The same as resources, it is worth saving up gold over time to be able to afford the things you need when you want them. Whether that’s just for new items or taking advantage of when resources crash in price post-DXP Events, you can always buy Runescape Gold to gain an even better advantage to make the most of these events.
As well as saving up resources for these Double XP Events, it is also worth saving up Charms. Summoning is a skill that takes a long time to gather the untradeable resources for, yet it is reasonably quick to level once you have them. For this reason, saving your Charms to be used on Double XP Events can result in you saving you many hours of grinding and Charm collecting, as well as saving on the cost too.
Attack over Defence
Over the years, Runescape’s combat system has evolved. From a point and click style of combat to utilizing action bars, abilities, and auras. Because of this, Attack and DPS (Damage Per Second) has become much more critical than Defensive bonuses in most cases.
When you reach a new level milestone, it usually the case that upgrading your Weapon will have more significant benefits than upgrading your armor. And in those cases you are upgrading armor, you’re generally going to want to pick the Power armor rather than Tank armor. The reason being that improving your DPS substantially quickly removes the necessity for much defense.
The most important advice that can be given for pretty much any game is, enjoy it. Games are for entertainment and enjoyment. There’s a plethora of content to enjoy in Runescape, something for everyone. If playing super efficiently and completing every piece of content in the game isn’t your thing, then don’t! Take part in the activities you enjoy, and you’ll get the most out of your time just by doing so.
