Welcome to RuneScape 3!

If you haven’t already, you can access the game via various methods found on the Downloads page of the website.

Original message details are unavailable.
Are you returning to the game? If so, skip to this post!

.


This thread will be a short introduction to the game with some useful information to those just starting out, as well as some major events you may have missed from the past. This thread is not aimed at veteran/experienced RuneScapers, however, anyone is welcome to offer advice and contribute to the thread.

Some will have recognised this thread from the past, as I’ve actually posted it 3 times before, once for DarkScape and twice for RS3, however due to a couple of inactive periods, it’s been eaten by the page 50 monster… so here’s this threads comeback! ;)

Original message details are unavailable.
PLEASE NOTE: This thread is NOT for Old School RuneScape!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.

Getting Started:
¤


Once you’ve created an account, you’ll be given options (shown below) whether you’re new to the game or not, which will determine if you complete the tutorial or not. Should you choose “Never played before”, you’ll appear on Tutorial Island, which introduces you to the game showing all the controls and how to use everything. You’ll participate in skilling and combat challenges to move onto the mainland. The biggest advantage to succeeding in this game is to have higher stats so that you’re able to participate in more of the high-level content the game has to offer. As the world of RuneScape is a vast, open world, it’s very difficult to decide what and where to go first.

Account Security:
¤


After having completed the tutorial, it’s is extremely important that you have all your account security in order. This includes a bank pin, email and Authenticator registered to the account.

Bank Pins:
These can be set up via any bank teller around the game world. Simply talk to them and set up a pin you’ll remember, but don’t make it too easy for someone to guess!

Email Registration:
You should already have this done when you set up your account, but if you’re a returning player who no longer has an email registered, then you should put on ASAP. It’s recommended not to use your personal email address for RuneScape related things, but create a separate one for your account.

Authenticator:
Google Authenticator is another tool used to log in and keep your account safe. The app can be downloaded from the App Store for iOS devices, and the Google Play store for Android users. If you don’t have a smartphone, or want to use your smartphone for this, you can get Authenticator for your PC. Read this thread for more information: Setting the Authenticator - Desktop/Laptop.

If you’re ever in need of help, then the Community Led Account Help forums, or Support centre are the places to go!

Client Interface:
¤


After creating your account, the default setting for the client interface will be the RuneScape 3 (NIS) look. If you’re a returning player and don’t like the look of this, then you’re able to change it back to how it looked before the release of EoC in 2012 via the settings. If you’d like a customisable interface, stick to the RS3 look and have a play around with an interface that will suit you. You can also save multiple interfaces to use at different occasions (see below).

Press ‘Esc’ and this interface will appear. You can load, and save different interfaces in the red box.

Please excuse the interface shown in the picture, it’s my ‘AFK’ one I use when doing work on split screen. :P

For the Legacy interface:
Press Esc and then Gameplay Settings. (See below)

Returning Players

If you’ve not played for a few years, then below you can find a few suggestions to assist you in getting back to playing RuneScape.

Old School RuneScape:
First of all, if you played the game before the release of the Evolution of Combat, and do not like the new version of the game, then head over to the Old School RuneScape page, which is a reincarnation of the game from 2007 – with some additional updates built onto it. This game was re-released in 2013 after a player poll and resembles the feel and style of the game from that era.
NOTE: As this is a different game to RuneScape 3, your account will be reset with level 1 stats and you’ll have to start over!
.


RuneScape 3:
¤
The biggest thing to unlock is the Elf City, which provides a lot of skilling, combat and questing opportunities, meaning completion of the
Plagues’ End
quest is a must!

¤
To gain money within the new style of gameplay,
Slayer
is probably your best bet. It’s very fast, can be efficient and makes a lot of money. It also trains up several skills in the process.

¤
Quests play a large role in the progress of the RS3 storyline, so it’s highly recommended to complete as many as possible.

¤
Joining a clan will greatly help you in getting back into the game, while making new friendships.



More to be added soon.

Other Game Modes
¤



Rather than playing the traditional game, there are optional game modes to play called 'Ironman' and 'Hardcore Ironman' mode. These are restricted game modes which play by different rules to a normal account.

Ironman - You cannot trade anyone, purchase any items from the Grand Exchange or join normal players in most content. You can, however join other 'Ironman' accounts and complete content with them.

Hardcore Ironman - This mode is the exact same as Ironman, however you're not allowed to die ever. If you do, the account is lost unless you purchase a unique item from Mr Ex in Edgeville - Jar of Divine Light. If you no longer wish to play Hardcore Ironman mode, you may also use this item to downgrade the account to a normal Ironman account.

I’d rather have more posts than needed, than need them and not have them.
