That is partly why I made the switch to OSRS from Ruify's blog

OSRS feels like the true runescape I like playing than RS3. I was maximum prior to RuneScape gold archeology, half way into 120 thieving, and that I made the conscience decision that I had rather re-max every skill from level 1 at osrs than perform rs3 and grind 1 99.

I have also transferred from rs3 into osrs recently for comparable reasons. However one difficulty I have had with games/communities is that this idea that everyone would like to max or that maxing is somehow"the point" of this game. Coming from a Dungeons and Dragons background (which much of early RS was very much based on) I've never had a campaign in which our party made it beyond level 10. Even with just like 3 decades of playing the exact same character. Building a character and fleshing them out durning the early levels is super rewarding and the seeming impossibility of attaining the top echelons makes the world seem vast and incredible. I made so many different characters back in pre-eoc because I actually embraced the Role-Playing aspect of this MMORPG. I would just set myself unique challenges or have a particular theme for the character. Nowit feels like everything is about ending game content/maxing. Sure, after nearly two decades there must be a lot of end game content. But it feels like that is all the community is centered on.

My primary account is a pure f2p in rs3 with a few 99s and a couple more not away. I quit the game for a period of about five years and returned last October. Pretty much everyone I knew in the f2p community which still plays has maxed and is now just grinding out virtual 120s/200m. Or maxing again on another/Ironman account.

I'm really close to my intentions of getting 99 Defence, Prayer, and Magic, along with my buddy who has maxed twice now in f2p requested me that skill I had been going to work on next. I was like... there likely will not be another. I'm getting these 99s since I like them or because they had been childhood dreams of mine. However, I don't place any value . I'm not going to do something I despise like Woodcutting or Fishing for hours just to find how the numbers go up. I mean, if I had been a child with all the time in the world I might. However, in my adult life I need a little more from my precious spare time. I need something engaging, rather than afkable.

I moved to osrs and made an eventual Ironman. And I have set myself additional thematic challenges and constraints. And while I could finally do exactly the identical thing in Rs3, I find that the exceptional equipment system of osrs makes different account builds more rewarding to perform with. Along with the community (particularly YouTube content creators) is way more enthused about that style of rs 2007 gold game play.
