The mechanic has also made me think on other MMO's

Is an ironman-inspired system applied to other games of the genre?

As a senile old man who is enjoying watching the scenery, I could not avoid noticing the accomplishments of the company. The ability to create your own way across Gielinor is a far enjoyable experience of OSRS gold when you realize that the only way to achieve it is due to your own determination and perseverance. It's a refreshing change from an old game that's been in existence for a long time. The mechanic has also made me think on other MMO's. Is an ironman-inspired system applied to other games of the genre?

The answer is complex. The mechanic is able to work across a variety of games so long as they meet the right elements in their game to support the player base, for instance, the game could require a variety of skills that players to put their time into and crafting systems. I think this method is particularly effective for Runescape due to its tightly knit game world as well as its loopable mechanism.

Everything is tied to it. Skills integrate and flow together in a way that all of it helps develop your character. I'm not sure any other game can do this better than Runescape and it's likely to be beneficial, considering that because an experience that's been in existence for as long as Runescape has to have a motive for its longevity in the category. Its Ironman mode is a great new feature in an old game. Long may it last.

Old school RuneScape players who want to earn new skins and cosmetics through slogging across the classic game's contents can begin doing so today, when the game launches the brand new Quest Speedrunning Worlds. The server is an entirely distinct members-only variant of the game that has specific rules and restrictions.

In order to begin a speedrunning session participants will have to choose a challenge upon logging on to the server. This quest they'll need to finish as quickly as they can. To ensure fairness in the competition the character's level will be automatically adapted to the appropriate level for the quest chosen. The quests will only be available when the game launches and ten more will be added in the coming five months.

Points and awards for Speedrunning are given based on the speed at which the quest can be completed. These points can be used to purchase a variety of cosmetic and reward items, such as Adventurer's Outfits with different tiers, Speedy Teleport Scrolls, and the Giant Stopwatch item. Quest Speedrunning World is open! Quest Speedrunning World is officially in operation as of this writing to those who wish to tackle the challenge. "Quest Speedrunning Worlds open. Go to the Quest Speedrunning World and smash those bars!" Jagex tweeted. "Show us your fastest times, but above all else, enjoy yourself!"

Jagex revealed today as part of the 300 million account celebrations, they'll launch Fresh Start servers for RuneScape gold for sale and Old School RuneScape on September 12th for RS3 and in October for OSRS. The name suggests that they'll be completely new servers on which players can begin from scratch in the same way as all other players. The servers that are fresh starts are only available for a certain period of time (4 months) and characters will be moved to normal servers following the duration of the event.
