As an Ironman, I do get very annoyed much we are catered to by upgrades. I liked the battle of Ironman since it made meRuneScape gold think outside of the box. I've been on a break. I do not really adhere to the updates too tightly so I am dreading the day that I find they destroyed my UIM by catering to the mode too much. It stinks that something becomes normiefied and thus ruined, if folks need all these alterations to make ironman great they can simply play regular acc and pick the limitations themselves.
Have you got any examples? Because I really, really disagree. Ironman is slayer simulator and basically every ironman centric update I could think of was just making matters less cancer for no good reason. Like mining that is sandstone. I guess they fixed"Zulrahman mode" if they updated her fall table that was a step in the perfect way, but it would really be great if slayer was not the best way to get money AND skilling supplies. The change to bosses provided that started a couple of years back with zulrah actually hurt the allure of term ironman to me. Having the ability to receive a large quantity of the resources you need by simply bossing or training slayer is pretty lame.
Meanwhile I have logged 250 ehp into my ironman lol that was f2p. Its a pure experience. The quests at least try to be varied and fascinating in their style. Obviously, if you consult a pursuit guide to prep all of the materials ahead, do not read any of this dialogue, and attempt to blitz them as fast as possible, you're likely to feel like an errand boy. Because you have stripped out the parts of the quests that are not errands. And, why I (and probably others) keep playing is because there's so many distinct things to do. I keep a checklist of all of the things I want to do, continually adding onto and eliminating things. When I get sick of doing one job, I can do one of the half a dozen other things I'd lined up anyway.
Unlike when I played with f2p, I never feel as though I am performing a grind to get its own sake, it always feels like it ties in to something else I wish to unlock/want to perform. And because there's a lot of connective tissue involving the skills/quests/unlocks/diaries, everything you are slogging through right now will, at some point, help you with something you actually want to be doing. I don't feel like I am mining because I need a mining level into mine with. Now I am mining since I need a coal tote to speed my smithing to make money faster to train everything else faster to get more unlocks etc.. It's really satisfying to want to do something (such as a quest or sth) and realize that you only have a couple of requirements to do it, as you did the rest of them in support of different things you wanted sooner.
Can't wait till I've got my quest cape. Let us get that 70 hunter. Honestly, I like the ride for what it really is. Between work andOSRS Gold For Sale using a baby on the way, RuneScape is. Because of the time it takes to mill at a pc while ACTIVELY other MMOs are out of the question.
