I am somebody who's put a great deal of hours to both versions of RuneScape, and from my experience I believe OSRS is much more"cover to acquire". Posting this here because I am not certain the other subreddit would appreciate it much. I'm going to get started with construction. But here is where it get tricky: what should I've cheap OSRS gold ? What are my alternatives to train? In RS3 There's the monthly god statues, which provide 40k free con xp per month(at lv 70. Or I could search for some money making ideas. It is possible to locate [methods] which make around 10m a hour that don't need any stats above 70. So 6 hours of that and you Have Sufficient gp to get 99 con) Or you can spend $21 and sell bonds. So approx $3.50 for every hour stored. On OSRS when I have 0gp can I train structure? You can't. You need GP. And if you are low/mid level your options for money-making are not terrific. If you start looking for methods which don't require anything higher you're earning less than 1m an hour. So you are taking a look to find cash that is enough for 99 con. This is not currently contemplating skills. Since RS3 has treasure hunter you have the capability to buy xp lamps that are random in any skill. I guess I do view this as a training method that is viable. Some components are more easy here, some parts are easier there. The distinction is that osrs is just time consuming. RS3 has much bigger variety of moneymakers, making RuneScape feel much easier because of it. Additionally, the free methods of coaching skills are usually high level, and dont consider supply and degradation price (if its through combat, such as the case you said for prayer). It's technically free, there's an initial price for gear and supplie (that you'll get back later on easily) but still, with 0 gp you won't be able to do it. And just to add to it, none of RuneScapes are p2w. They are"pay to progress faster". Get to the endgame faster, will have greater stuff unlocked faster, if you buy bonds, and gp, you will progress faster. Just because RS3 has gamble mtx, which is uncooked xp in most of the circumstances, it's considered more p2w, but in fact, they simply help you unlock things quicker, and make your progression less grindy. Combat is way easier in osrs. Much less things to listen to, etc. Both game has their distinct"difficult items to pull out" in combat, but the ability ceiling is much lower in osrs. Since they arent only less afk any different or more grindy Additionally, skilling is just as simple as in RS3. Nothing is difficult besides maybe high end. RS3 imo has down that hands other but a different demon. There is nothing to listen to and every style has crazy AOE capabilies particularly when added into soul split. Even with it farther into RuneScape. Theres plenty of approaches to Max combat through abyss with blood neck.vamp air to readily become maxed very very quickly all afk clicking every 5mins to reset agro or utilizing agro pots. With osrs certain you have nightmare zone, but the exp levels of the are 60-100k a hour clicking every 20mins with combat potions or maintaining 1hp with orb/rockcakes. Every single day of the week I would conduct RS3. I could max combat in perhaps a few weeks all styles in RS 3 gold without spending much money and keeping up the worthiness of my equipment without having to use considerably runes or compost since theres options like gaives DRL and stuff. I'll bring up RC for OSRS cause its dumb. But every ability requires hours and less return than RS3. Even RS3's approaches the equates to cash earned will be the exp per hour than osrs. Sure its only wait and click, but the is"problem" at RS.
