2017: The Year for OSRS

Posted May 16, 2017 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in Editorials

Mark your calendars because RuneFest is on like Donkey Kong! It’s a night of gathering with other OSRS players and enthusiasts. Although the get-together is on September 23 at Battersea Evolution in London, England, there are things you can do to pass the time: explore uncharted territory, finish quests, and collect items.

6 Expansion Areas to Explore

Last April, Jagex added expansions, including new dungeons and relocated some creatures.

  • Nieve’s Cave: the Kalphite Hive is now in the Kharidian Desert. Creatures have a bigger space for roaming that makes it easier for players to hunt.
  • The Chasm of Fire: a place that’s now open. Players slay demons that get stronger the deeper they go.
  • Taverley Dungeon: let’s players climb walls so that they can access new areas and Black Dragons.
  • Piscatoris Fishing Colony: a llair of Waterfiends and Cave Kraken that enables players a chance to fight the Kraken in one of the rooms.
  • Brimhaven Dungeon: got additional spawn points for Metal Dragons.
  • Slayer Tower: has added basement floors filled with basement dwelling creatures.

Quests and More

As for missions, there are a total of one hundred and thirty quests to do (that’s if you’re a member). There’s some free-to-play quests (around 19) and 111 expeditions for members. Luckily, you can purchase member bonds with Old School Runescape gold: If quests ever get confusing, guides and walkthroughs are available on the Internet. Some of them even recommend an order of doing quests. At the end of the day, it’s up to you to choose whether to follow the helpful hints or not.

OSRS Gold and Items to Collect

In the collectibles side, they released the Skoto, a small Skotizo pet. There’s a 1 in 65 chance to get one from the boss. The probability is higher than obtaining an Abyssal Orphan, which already has a low likelihood since it’s complicated by the rarity of the prerequisite item. Most of the other boss pets have drop rates that go as low as 1/5000. Basically, it’s easier to get a Skoto or a skilling pet. In the meantime, collect the Dark Claws so that you could dye a Slayer Helm a cool shade of purple, and show off your master of the Catacombs of Kourend. You can get those claws from the Skotizo.

Collecting OSRS gold is a smart move. Many of the quests only have rewards and rare items that are sold for gold. Unfortunately, the pets aren’t tradable even if they’re very rare. However, equipment is always in demand, especially gear with solid stats. Crafting and questing are propoper sources of equipment. The rare crafting ingredients of Dark Claws that was mentioned earlier will drop with a 1/25 chance. Besides, there’s the option to buy or sell gold with real money, though it’s frowned upon by the developers. In fact, trading can be a risky business. You’re never quite sure if the individual you’re trading with is honest or a phony.

So far, 2017 is looking good for OSRS players, in particularly, the announcement of Runefest and the upcoming and recent updates. Also, there’s the Deadman Invitational with updates to skill capes and perks. Here’s to hoping that the rest of the year is as good to OSRS fans. Cheers!
