Are you new to the game and don't know where to start?
Old School Runescape can be a bit overwhelming when you start playing if you don't have the proper guide. There are many things to do and many places to see, but there is nothing to worry about!
Here are these tips so you can start playing and progress in Rune without problems:
Starting the Game
Before running you must learn to walk. It is essential to first learn the basic instructions on how to move in the game, where to buy items, how to raise skills, which monsters to kill, where to sell the objects you collect, where to get OSRS gold, where to buy armor, what to equip, how to use the mini map to locate yourself in the game places ...
If you have an acquaintance, friend, neighbor or relative who can explain the essential things of the game to you personally, it would be ideal if they took a day or an afternoon to meet and teach you all the details, because there are many points that must be explained calmly so that you can play effectively and that they take a long time.
Once you have knowledge of the basics, you can learn the rest independently, asking, looking for guides and YouTube videos.
A healthy practice that we constantly recommend to game users is: Get used to looking for game guides and all the doubts you have on Google and YouTube
We consider that one of the greatest advantages of Old School Runescape is that you can get guides for absolutely everything you can think of to ask about the game on the net. There are guides to raise any skill from 1 to 99, of all the quests and all the monsters and even to learn how to use the game, everything you want to know you get on Google. Today, you can also get cheap RS gold easily.
If you don't have anyone close to you who can guide you in the game, the easiest way to learn how to play and clarify all your doubts about Runescape is to open a Google search and use the thousands of guides and videos on YouTube. Easy, fast and without depending on anyone. There are many streamers, Youtubers and experienced players who are constantly uploading videos about the game, so you will never be short of updated information.
Top Priority: Exit Free
In Runescape all skills are uploaded faster and you get more gold from anything you do with a member account. Theoretically, free to play is a trial version of the game so many places, monsters and skills are limited, therefore it is less effective to carry out any activity there. Your priority should be to remove the member and leave free, everything else is wasting time. The skills that it takes to upload 1 or 2 weeks in free to play can be uploaded in 1 or 2 days in member, using efficient methods and doing quests. There is even a YouTuber who raised combat to 70 from scratch in one day. Why waste time on free to play if you can get much more out of your account faster and do more in member? Not worth it.
What to Clean and What not to Clean in Free
We are just starting, we do not know what to do and we cannot pay for a membership through a page. What should you do? Our direct recommendation is to raise the stats of the combat skills (atk, def, str, range and magic) up to level 40 only. And don't waste time on anything else unless you want to do a quest before activating your membership.
As we explained before, dedicating yourself to uploading other skills in free for profit is a great waste of time, according to the official OSRS money making guide, they generate very little profit per hour at high levels and it takes too long to reach those levels, for which they are not really worth it. And yes, we are aware that many people recommend the opposite, we invite you to compare the official data of the Wiki yourself.
Sadly, many malicious gamers recommend activities that do not generate profit or that even cause them to lose equipment and coins, so that new ones will get tired of Runescape and stop playing.
Taking the Bond from scratch
Once you reach level 40 in your combat skills, the two fastest and most effective options to get the bond are:
1. Steal Zamorak Wines in Falador.
2. Do the Corsair Curse quest and go kill Ogres.
How to kill Ogres
Note: Some recommend raising your combat stats a bit more to go to ogres, however you can keep going up there while you get your bond. Those are the two fastest methods to reunite the bond in free. Other viable methods are flipping and tan leather.
Patience will be your best ally
Compared to other RPG games, Old School Runescape accounts take considerable time to upgrade skills and obtain equipment in order to get the most out of the character. Until more knowledge is gained about the game, its mobs and skills, Runescape does not produce as fast as one would like. It is a game in which those who have patience persevere and maintain consistency in reaching their goals in the game. With discipline, researching, and always looking for guidelines and methods to improve, anyone can achieve what they set out to do at Old School.
