Runescape Vs World of Warcraft

The pros and cons between two of the most famous and played games online.

I’ll take an unbiased stance and say that they’re pretty even. Runescape has its advantages and disadvantages, as does World of Warcraft. There are simple things that makes one game better than another in one way, but worse in another.

The only reason I’m writing this is to calm all of the gamers down who constantly argue about which game is better. I want to try my best (however effective or uneffective it may be) to cease the flames and personal attacks that come with playing a certain game.

Runescape is a game most played by teenagers from ages 13-15, but is also played by 9-12 year olds. This age difference might cause a corruption somewhere in the community, which is a downfall. However, World of Warcraft’s complexity makes it harder for immature players to play, usually because their impatience.

World of Warcraft is complex and hard to understand at first, and only allows certain classes per character. In Runescape, it’s easier to follow along and see what’s happening and what to do, and all “classes” can be accessed by a single character.

Runescape only allows 1 character per account. World of Warcraft allows enough too fill most of the classes in a single realm.

World of Warcraft is $15 a month. Runescape is only $5 a month.

Runescape can seem childish and can become repetitive once in awhile. World of Warcraft does become repetitive, but very rarely so.

World of Warcraft is full screen and requires more resources from the computer to play. Runescape is a browser game, made in the resource-hog Java, but doesn’t require near as much as World of Warcraft.

Now you see, they’re pretty even. Now I’ll tread even further into the 2 most important factors in each game.

Runescape’s graphics may be the best Java can do, but they’re still lacking. World of Warcraft has better graphics (although not near as good as it can potentially be).

World of Warcraft REQUIRES teams and levels for certain things. Runescape doesn’t require a team for anything (although the option is still there), all you need is a few extra levels, and I’ve even done slightly difficult quests (Desert Treasure, Monkey Madness) at near bare minimums, around 35 combat.

Now you see, the games are basically equal. I choose Runescape over World of Warcraft because it’s an easy-to-follow game that doesn’t need immediate attention (which can also lower the fun a bit), because I have to program once in awhile.

Thanks for reading!

    personal, im a runescape layer. but if i could afford to play i probley would but 15 dollars per month thats outrages!… plus you have to pay for the game alone witch is like 100 dollars i think. runescape is only 5 dollars per month and if you dont wanna to be a member you dont even have to pay.sure you don’t get as much benfits as a non-member. but still thats better than 15 dollars per month… thats just my disgenion

  2. Well...IMO

    Well, in my opinion. WOW does definetly have better graphics.
    ALTHOUGH!!
    If Runescape where to charge it’s members 15$ a month for its services, the graphics on RS woud definetly be greater.

    And BTW people can play on the free worlds for as long as you want

    You left out the most important thing….. PvP

    On WoW you have to ask some1 to fight or if your in a certain server u dont have to ask but only fight 1 on 1…

    But on rs the PvP is 10 times better you can form teams/clans to pk with you get there stuff if you kill them unlike wow u just get some money.

    Also 90% of WoW is doing quests which is highly boring

    I personally choose rs. I’ve played WOW and thought it wasn’t half bad, BUT I enjoyed rs a lot better. The PvP in rs overall is a lot better than WOW.

    and to heilla, you can solo kq, its not nearly as hard as you make it out to be lol

    reason runescape is lacking graphical quali and improovment, because its designed to be playe by anyone that has a computer, and any speed of internet, try play wow on dial up, then play runescape.

    Runescapes pvp aspect of the game is much greater IMO. When they took WoW’s ranking system away they kinda ruined part of the game, the game was also ruined by giving anyone wih a few bg kills the pvp armour,

    but in runescape, the pvp is solid, the aspect of killing people for there stuff appeals to me.

    I play both games, and i have stints where i will play 1 game more than the other, but i’ve played runescap since i was 13 (5 years), and my loyalty will always stick with andrew and the jagex team, until they find some way to nerf the game so bad, it is not enjoyable to play anymore.

    If you play World of Warcraft you have to make Bill Gates richer, and open your computer up to viruses and spyware and hackers, Runescape runs on Linux and Mac as well as Windows or any other OS that runs Java SE. And you don’t need to bathe your computer in $$$ if you don’t want to.

    I think that world of warcraft in my opinion is better ok you need a decent computer and you need to pay £10.00 a month but if you look at how much fun you get I’d go with wow, runescape starts of good but then the quests get repetitive and the battle system gets very dull. Runescape isn’t bad I think with better graphics better battle system and a good storyline it could be really decent mmorpg. Oh btw at the the end you said world of warcraft needs teams to do most things I’d put that as a good point it’s funner to do stuff in groups.

    Posted August 20, 2007 at 10:51 am

    Well, I enjoy RuneScape for 3 reasons. One is that its PvP appeals to me more than WoW’s, Two is the fact that you don’t have to look at the screen all the time while skilling, and Three is that it’s a whole lot easier to make money in-game to sell online :)

    WoW’s max lvl is 70 at the moment, and the max skill level is 375 (but it’s piss easy to level, I could be there now if I didn’t get bored of doing the quest for Artisian cooking). By the way, the max cb is 126 in RS :P

    omg i seriously cannot believe that anyone could say that runescape is in ANYWAY better than wow!! u guys who claim that you play WoW and choose runescape over it are lying as this is an inconceivable point. WOW is internationally acclaimed for being thousands of times better than WoW. Dial up connection?? if you still live in the 90’s then yes fair enough but come on guys, dial up in 2007?? Runescape is for children! Wow has better graphics, much better game play and team play, better game interaction (important in a MMRPG) it is 100 times more fun to play and your character is personal! Apart from looks, a runescape player can be everything on one character hence; warcraft the characters are personalised in looks specs, playing style, PVE raids/PVP/roleplaying and many other ways. WoW defeats runescape. FULL STOP.

    i have played both of these games and have put them into consideration. runescape is good and all but its world is incredibly small. if you put runescape in proportion to our people it would smaller than a city.=(world of war craft is litterally 10s of times bigger than rs.wow1 rs0. graphics rs has bag graphics even for java games if you didnt know. while wow has graphics that rival a ps2.wow2 rs0.rs graphics and price make it more availible to players. wow costs around 55 dollars to buy and 15 a month 10 play. unknown to loads of peaple however wow also has free servers=P.wow2 rs1.rs also has more skill to learn in 1 player.but wow accounts have multiple players in 1 account so you can use them all point for both.wow3 rs2.wow lets you be different people however like instead of being a human you can be an elf.rs only lets you be human….wow4 rs2.both have quests and items but wow has more.wow5 rs2.people always say that wows pvp is bad and sometimes gay! i say nay! ucan have guilds a share loot like rs clans so both equal.wow5 rs3.oh bill gates doesnt get money off this as much as u think he hardly gets any.oh and last of rs staff make it like a baby game.it wont let u say anything and its new updates suck!!!its safety procedures actually help friggen hackers take your account!!!!!!!!!!!!!!wow does block some words but doesnt ruin lives with updates.wow6 rs3. on wow u can now actually talk to people with headsets.rs only lets you type,also the only sound from rs is wen you fite or interact with someone. wow7 rs3…………..guese wat wow wins!!!!!!!!!and i did this 2 tell the truth and hope sumday all you nerds will learn to get along…………………….

  27. Rs. Vs. W.O.W.
    Posted December 31, 2007 at 6:31 pm

    Ok first of all runescape is pretty darn good, but after you get banned or certain lvl like 80 or higher it starts to get boring. I think Jagex Ltd. is a sissy and a wus, why? because you get bannned for stupid stuff.Runescape also has horrible graphics and yes it is about the graphics. I have seen plenty of W.O.W. commericals and that looks so much better. Plus in runescape all the characters look the same. The only thing you can change is color and what they wear, but in W.O.W. you get to choose diffrent people and diffrent sizes. So really I think W.O.W. is better!!!

    Posted February 10, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    I used to play rs and it was fun but ounce i hit 70 i got really bored.Now i play wow and i have like 3 characters.I do admit that RS PvP is better than WoW but there arent enoughb armour sets in RS.well in WoW there is like gladiotors and leutenets and field marshals and alot more.

    but i still think that WoW is better and 2 me right now i think RS is EXTREMELY boring compared 2 rs.there isnt enough map in rs wi’ll in WoW there are different.and i think that the pve in WoW is better than rs

    ok, you guys are all arguing stupidly. the real thing that makes wow beter is the community. sure, you can’t change realm, but unlike runescape (which i played for ages)it doesnt have a community of hackers and scammers. i played til lvl 81 and 1600 total, but i got hacked by some barstard. in wow people dont try to. i used to think wow was crap, but now i know the truth. wow is like ….1000000000 times better value for money, as in runescape you have to be a member to play properly. now, you cant even give ur friend 1 mill if you want to. on wow they don’t care, and its much better.

    In my opinion I like runescape a lot more. The only problem with it now is they r making so many stupid changes in it. For example they changed the wild into a place where only people 100+ can own in bounty hunter, the 3000 trade limit makes it hard to rip off people, lol, and u can’t do as many trades. The new summoning is skill is way to hard to level up and way to confusing, but overall in my opinion I like runescape more.I am a mem in it and it costs was less than world of war craft

    Well I have to admit I have tried world of warcraft and tbh it wasn’t that good. Maybe I’m just attached to RuneScape? I have been playing for 4 years. It’s just that the updates about the 3k limit and the wilderness let me down. I’m sure Jagex will fix it so.

    i’ve played runedscape for 7 months and most people play runescape at a young age…and many people call you “noob/nub”, which is annoying.i’ve played WoW but you have to pay money!!! on Runescape you can play as long as you want to without paying money.Sure WoW has good grafics but you have to pay money…runescape eventually gets boring because you only spend time on making money and raising your stat.
    i don’t care what you play! but it’s a your decision…play runescape and pay nothing and get bored or pay money to play WoW.!
    ~darkangelz! ftw!~

  36. WOW FTW
    Posted March 14, 2008 at 11:10 am

    First off, I am a W.o.W fan. You pay less $ in RS because it is cheap stuff. W.o.W has better graphics. And even though you say RS has better pvp, W.o.W has better armor sets, and pvp weapons. W.o.W is like paradise, with epic flyers, great weapons,gear, and you can socialize better because W.o.W has different age groups, not like RS with mostly 9-12 year olds. QQ

  37. Worldofwarcraft ftw
    Posted March 18, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    Iv played both runescape (level 92 b4 i quit) and worldofwarcraft (currently 3 70’s and working on a 4th) and BY FAR i choose worldofwarcraft. The world is SOOO much bigger, better graphics, better armor, better pve, and better pvp. whoever said that you have to ask to attack someone and its only 1v1. that is only half true…not even that. WoW has 1v1 (to see who’s better) 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, 10v10, 15v15, and 40 vs 40 AND MORE if you really wanted to. There are multiple dungeons that can range from being easy to being literally impossible with the gear you have. Ask me about ANYTHING and I will show a way WoW is better (except in cost) which i thought was outrageous when i first started playing but it is DEFINITELY worth it

    well people ive been reading all the coments and so far i find runescape to be entertaining(mainly because of all the stuff u can do) and yes it gets boring trying to get money i played for 1 year and realy got banned for no reason lol? and yes the cost overcomes WOW or whatever its called…

    WOW seems to be a good game as i have read the comments althouth i would enjoy playing it(never done so) im gonna try to get the chance to experience WOW (sure it costs 15 dollars ) well here is the difference between the costs runescapewants to pay a low cost to play but wow pays a high cost for bigger updates and runescape dosnt do many updates… and so far nobody has won the battle between RS VS WOW (althouth many people for opining say wow or rs is beter dont see difference i would enjoy both

    Posted March 27, 2008 at 10:30 am

    Ok. I’ve played rs for around 7 years now, almost when it first came out. First, stop complaining about the graphic comparison. Runescape is made in JAVA. Does anyone else know a game that is made in Java with better graphics? I don’t think so. Jagex did an awesome job considering it’s all Java. For anyone that knows Java, it is very limited in the way of graphics, among other things.

    Also, WoW is a pc game in which you must go to the store to purchase, as well as a heafty $15 a month to play, per account. Luckily you can have more than one character per account. It’s only realistic for WoW to technically be ‘better’ than Runescape, or else people wouldnt buy the game.

    WoW was originally created as a game for gamers to play and fall in love with. They successfully did that. Good job. Did you know Runescape was only a university or college project that turned into a multi million dollar game? They had no intention for it to boom in popularity.

    I’d like to reiterate where someone mention rs being geared more toward the younger teens where WoW is for the older teens. No, there is no age limit for either game, anyone can play if they feel like it. Yes, there are quite a few of young kids that play and does get annoying at times, but to be honest, it’s gotten much better. I like the idea of WoW though because you actually have to be intelligent to play effectively. Runescape….not so much, but still need to have some sense. Intelligence greatly helps though, but it would in any game, correct?

    Size difference? Sure WoW is huge and has lots of areas to explore and such, but Runescape is quite large too, for the type of game. There are enough boss npcs (kalphite queen, king black dragon, gods in the gods war dungeon, king daggonoths and more). There are enough boss monsters that drops high lvl equipment considering the amount of items in Runescape. There are also hundreds of different monsters to fight, more than enough. But what’s the big deal about combat? Both WoW and Rs has skills to train, but are quite different in that way.

    Skills are more of a big deal in rs than WoW, or so i’ll say (i played wow for 10 min then said screw it). Runescape has an a lot of skills to train and many things within each skill you can do.

    I don’t know where im going anymore but to me, Rs and WoW and pretty much two different games. If Runescape was not #2 behind WoW for most played MMORPG, I don’t think we’d see near as many comparisons. How can you compare two completely different games that have different purposes. I cannot exactly say what the purpose of rs or wow is, but to me, WoW is more about the combat and fighting, raids, bosses etc. Runescape is about maxing your skills, using them with other skills to level more efficiently and earn money etc. How much of WoW can you take part in at lvl1 and what about Runescape at level 3? You have more freedom and choice in rs to how you want your player to be.

    There a lot more to touch on if you really want to. Think about the game rules, updates, history or even tcompare how involved jagex is with rs and how involved blizzard is with WoW. It’s obvious I chose Rs over WoW, but I never got far into WoW and couldnt experience the actual game.

    Let’s see some posts that are not about the game engines used in the creation of the game. Everything I hear always comes back to the point that rs is in Java, WoW uses an actually gaming engine. Runescape will never have ‘good’ graphics or advanced systems and such. Java is too limited. Runecape? World of Warcraft? Why not leave them as two different games.

    B. Poor (Im not saying that you dont have the money im saying that you cant get it…goes into C
    C. Too Young ( Cant pay for a good game cuz u are too young to even get a part-time job. I also do not want to play a game with a bunch of stupid little kids that will piss me off whenever I do something that they are not completely happy with…also ties with D
    D. Bad comp/internet (Basically if you have an old crappy system, its cuz you dont have a job to get the money to buy a better system beacuse of age. Internet is also a problem, but not always
    I get mine free with WiFi, go to any McDonalds, Starbuck’s, and Public Library and they should have it.

The a few months later i got World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft was a good game I dint like the level requierments for the mount but I got over it.Soon I was level 56 (warlock) and then thats when the game got boring.Not that it was repetitive but because i was never happy with any of the classes I picked or the races. I really wanted the pandaren race in the game but…. So I quit. My reviews on Bothe games
    Runescape = 6.7 = worth trying World of Warcraft = 9.5 = It could be your new favroit game.

    I tried runescape and got sick of it in 2 minutes. I never played on a legit WoW server, so I became bored with the lack of other players. Give me Maplestory or Mu Online any day.

    Some idiot above wrote that WoW steals stuff from Runescape Classic. Well lets look right now. The Warcraft Series is far older than RS Classic. RS recently came out with, The Grand Exchange. Bit like WoW’s auction houses, don’t you think? The trading for “Borrowing a Players Skill” is just like the “Item not to be traded tab” in WoW. Both of those features only recently came out in RS. WoW duels had nothing to do with copying off of RS Classic, I doubt the guy who came up with the concept had ever heard of RS. So please know what you’re talking about before you open your over sized mouth.

  57. Which One?
    Posted May 20, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    I personally don’t have a favorite. I’ve played both world of warcraft and runescape. I have dislikes and likes about both, although the as said in another comment:most of world of warcraft is just quests. I can’t really figure out which to play. They are about the same to me, although most people will rate a game based on the graphics the game has, and i think that is totally wrong because they arn’t everything. So i’m asking, if both games had the same graphic levels, which one would you choose? Thats the actual question between world of warcraft and runescape that isnt really implied.
    So think about it…If they had the same exact graphic levels, which one would you choose to play?

  58. Which One?
    Posted May 20, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Also, if you’ve played runescape, and you think it gets boring after a while? Just to say world of warcraft gets boring too, and alot faster because its alot and i mean alot esier to level up on world of warcraft, and they make that up by having more armour and weapons to choose from at high levels.

    So it comes about even. There is no really right or wrong game to play, so just play the game that most interests you and you have more fun on! rather it be runescape or world of warcraft!

    -P.S.- Younger Kids can be smarter than most may think of the subject. Some arn’t immature like others portray they can be.

    Well when i have played both games,Runescape and WoW
    Runescape approximatly 1 year 6 months ( but i did leave for 6 months so 1 YEAR)
    WoW for a year witha 2 month leave due to computer virus killing comp and we had to get a new one,

    OK let me get to the basics
    I Much prefer WoW i would never go back to Runescape,unless a friend asked but i wouldnt never pay for it again,WoW never gets boring,so much to do Proffesions,Pvp,Leveling,Questing,Doing raids,Doing dungeons etc lots more
    I had a level 74 in runescape and i have a max level in wow
    Runescape membership:5 euro
    Wow Membership:13 euro
    characters per account
    Runescape:1(10 account for 10 charS???= 50 euro ????!?)
    WoW:10 per realm(theirs more than 100 realms on wow europe)
    Wow has got an expansion pack and the level cap is raised and lots of new stuff come in expansions
    a second expansion pack is released this year
    Wow is my favourite Game PERIOD
    Better graphics,better gameplay,Better guild/clan system,better combat more quests and easyier! (combos…u can move around and stuff)
    Runescape:hit hit hit hit (standing still+random damagE)

    Put it this way:
    If somehow both games became free completely,which game would people play ?
    Runescape Or World of Warcraft?

    I would bet 90% of people would say World of Warcraft

    Most people that have played runescape and not wow just think its better because they play it and when people tell them how good the other game is they go into denial

    FACE IT if you could play wow for free and not ure runescape u WOULD play it and you know it

    That was idiotic, it only costs 30$ for wow… yeah, runescape used to be good but it got ruined by the trade limit so now it’s just a ” wafve to tht guy over there” if you want interaction type game… So, it’s stupid… WoW is addicting anleses repetitive, and I have no idea why people say the graphics aren’t as good as they could be.

    Yeah, And also, I got banned for dumb crap, they actually altered the rules, here’s the evidence:

    Damn, they won’t let me see the evidence now, the bastards caught onto the fact that they banned me for something wrong.

    They banned me for like Jagex staff impersonation because I said Jagex “saux” (just because someone reported me for impersonation and I said Jagex, that must mean that I was a scammer, right? Right.

    And its ridiculous that you guys are talking about the game engines – they are both games. Jagex is a bullsh** company, Bliz actually has a support line.

    Runescape actually does take memory on your computer, it caches information…

    I’m not gonna say RS is a bad game, it’s awesome for a browser game. But WoW is all around better. graphics, combat system, story line, different races to play as. RS only has human, Wow has human, orc, troll, gnome, dwarf, night elf, blood elf, draenei, tauren, & undead. when RS can let u play as a zombie, it may compare. lol. THere are alot more quests in Wow & they never get repetitive or boring. the Pvp is kinda equal in my eyes. THe rewards from the honor in WoW are the best things in the game, period. & U can steal ppls crap from them in RS. & that also rules. The environment in WoW is HUGE compared to RS. 2 worlds & there’s a new expansion comin out for it that adds ANOTHER GINORMOUS AREA. I say WoW pwns the hell out of RS. But I play them both.

    I personally play Runescape and I have tried WoW, but I just couldn’t get into it. I like the freedom about Runescape that you can just do whatever you want, whenever you want. If you wanna’ make some arrows you can go and do that, but on WoW there are limited things you can do, as far as I was concerned, all I was doing on WoW was doing quest or killing things… Also on Runescape you can make big clans and have wars with them etc.

    Plus its only like $5.00 a month unlike WoW which is about $15.00?

    I know Runescapes graphics are not as up to scratch as WoW but, JaGex are releasing new updated graphics which look a lot better, not as good as WoW graphics but still good. Plus the gameplay of Runescape more than makes up for its graphics.

    lol, I can tell by the comments coming from the RS players here that they have hardly ever played WoW.

    I have played both games for around 2 years, and I have decided that WoW is much better. Although I still sometimes look at the RS website just to see what new crap Jagex has made up.

    The statistics as well as gameplay etc prove that WoW is infact better than RS. 9,000,000 players > 1,000,000 paying members.

    BTW… you do realise that Jagex would have gotten into really bad fininacial trouble if they had not made all those stupid anti RTW updates. The ammount of times players asked for refunds etc was so alarming that the Banks were going to stop most if not all services to Jagex.

    On another note, to all you kids out there saying that WoW is all quests and killing stuff. Think again.

    WoW =

    Pvp: Arenas, Battlegrounds, World PvP, Duels etc

    Quests: Dailies, Normal leveling quests, Raid/dungeon quests etc

    Dungeons: 5 man dungeons (there are over 15 different ones from level 12-70), as well as having heroic versions for all outland dungeons.

    Raids: 10 man raids, 25 man raids, 40 man raids

    Professions: I think there was 8 or so professions?… I cant really remember :P

    World Boss Encounters: Roaming around the world there are a number of boss monsters that will take a large group of people to kill, these do take a certain degree of skill. Trust me.

    and many others… i cbf writing any more

    Posted July 2, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Ok, Runescape vs WoW ..
    Runescape: Crude Graphics, very boring gameplay. PvP is you clicking on a character and just sitting there. To level up skills all you do is sit there like an idiot and click one spell over and over again.

    In wow ..

    Much better graphics.
    PvP: 1v1 in Duels, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5, 10v10, 15v15, and 40v40 in arenas and battlegrounds.

    PvE: Dungeons ranging from 5, 10, 15 and even 40 man. You are also forgetting the thousands of quests you can choose to do.

    Professions: 8 or so proffessions, all of them unique and very fun to level (aka you don’t stand there clicking a button 5 thousand times until you level).

    Controls: Very easy and interactive interface, along with keyboard movement (hey, no more of that annoying clicking back and forth).

    “Also on Runescape you can make big clans and have wars with them”. Well, in WoW you can make guilds (aka clans), which have MUCh more options with them including variation of ranks, motd’s, tabards, and banks just for the guild. In runescape, all you can do as far as I can tell is invite people into your channel.

    ” on WoW there are limited things you can do”. Good sir, killing and questing aren’t the only things you can do. Level a proffesion (a much more fun process then in RS), as well as RP, Bg and much more.

    more on this later

    world of warcraft also has better interaction, PVP, and has 10 races of great looks and detail. runescape is simply a bad looking man.

    I played WoW once and I didn’t like it…Runescape is much simpler.

    If you compared these games bluntly, of course WoW is a lot better. But if you compared them for WHAT they are, Runescape is better. Jagex is a small company, and WoW’s marketing is a lot bigger and better…you can’t really compare the two games like that. If Jagex had the same resources and money as Bliz, but the gaming concept was still the same, would people like it as much as Wow?

    Both games are unique and great in their own senses, but I do prefer Runescape because of its simplicity.

    Posted August 8, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    People say RS is much better than it really is. They say you have 24 skills, but don’t mention 6 of them are combat skills, and the majority of them are nothing but major, boring grinds.
    The combat is terrible.
    The travel is dull most of the time.
    The quests are generally long and annoying, along with having bad rewards.
    The best gear can be BOUGHT with gold you GRINDED.
    I can go on.
    WoW’s systems are much better, even with Blizzard’s budget compared to Jagex, I say WoW wins. I’ve played both, I think I have a right to judge.

  101. Redtrocious
    Posted September 1, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    I\’ve played both games, and they have their good points.

    Runescape is a \”portable\” MMORPG because you can play it everywhere, assuming you\’re on a PC that\’s not powered by coal. Unlike WoW, where you can\’t install the same key for different computers.

    Graphics aside, Runescape does get boring after some time. Even though I\’m not a member, I did a long grind in Runescape, got battle skills to 70~ and most skills 40+ (of course, not counting the member only skills). Runescape is great at first. But if you play other MMORPGs and compare, there are missing things.

    There\’s no party system, looks like Jagex wanted players to solo all skills to 99. That\’s very bad, as MMORPGs bright when you have a complex party/guild system, the more interaction a MMO game throws at you, the funner it gets, that\’s why it\’s a multiplayer game in first place.

    But I do admit I had fun with RS. I was young back then, and never played any MMORPG. But it still have its merits in my opinion. It was pretty much revolutionary when it was released. No need of downloading, and big worlds, compared to the MMORPGs of Runescape\’s time.

    I\’ve only played WoW trial, but it was enough.
    WoW on the other hand, is very different. It\’s a bit unfair to compare both, because it was released later, so there are tech improvements, such as graphics, etc.

    WoW is insanely huge, no kidding. Looks like even after playing for decades you would still have a quest or something else to do, not counting the expansions that add +10 levels/equipment/new lands to explore.

    WoW does a great job at not providing \”gameplay nerfs\” to generate more playtime. I call gameplay nerf for example, the HP regeneration time of some MMORPGs (such as ragnarok online), it\’s a time where you\’re forced to idle, and it really sucks. Other gameplay nerfs are making the game harder by adding more obstacles, instead of content to keep players playing

    Many MMORPGs get some \”patches\” where skills get nerfed or any change promotes a harder time doing something, that\’s very negative in my way of view. In fact WoW and RS are one of the few MMORPGs where I don\’t see equipment breaking (not sure about that in WoW), where you will have to grind a lot to get that equipment back, it really sucks to depend on plain luck on any MMORPG to acquire endgame equipment, or anything else like in [insert any korean MMORPG name here].

    The price is higher, but I think, if you\’re going to pay for something, you might as well pay for the best around. You should play both games, RS non-member and WoW trial if you\’re deciding between them, that\’s my hint.

    I liked both but my 2cents, WoW is far more dense, and complex, yet RS still has it\’s merits. Compared to most (and mostly korean) MMORPGs, where you have to grind for levels or equipment, being extremely boring for hours and hours, WoW it\’s an easy pick.

    Posted September 2, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    Well personally i like wow alot more then runescape for the simple fact that over the last few months jajex have messed up the game without hope of returning it to its once found glory… also runescape i mean all the hype about the “3d graphics” i mean the graphics are still worse then wow (even tho wow graphics aint great) but there still better in my opinion. also runescape is a very annoying game due to the fact that id say about 80% of the population on the game must be under the age of 13 and therefore can get very annoying.

  103. Chrisjg
    Posted September 2, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    Another thing i forgot to add about runescape is that it gets very boring after a while due to the fact that i have a level 110 character (with around 50m cash) and that took me pretty much the best part of 2 years to get so u can imagine how repetitive it can get. Also i mean the concept of runescape is very boring if u sit and think about it for a while i mean how people can get such enjoyment from sitting there and clicking a tree…btw if u don’t believe that i got a lv 110 character look it up on high scores as “chrisjg”

    Posted September 7, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    Runescape does have it’s merits. The quests are fun, even if they’re not that many compared to most quest based MMORPGs, the quests don’t revolve around killing 10 monsters of this kind and 15 of another kind. There are quest only items and useful rewards, something other games could copy. But also RS is very limited, the amount of equipment is small compared to everything else out there. You don’t have for example, one kind of metal plate having magic properties, like a rare rune armor, or even a unique rune armor (very Diablo yes). It’s a bit obvious it will be always be like that, java games can’t hold a huge variety of items for now, would need a complete remade.

    Runescape kicks WoW’s ass. I play both of them, and now that the new graphics came WoW players can no longer say that WoW’s graphics are better.

    WoW is very limited in what you can do since you have to choose a class and such, but in RuneScape you can do anything you want. This is what I like best.

    All you idiots don’t like RS because you start out with nothing and you’re too lazy to get it up. You can max combat in WoW in like a month. That’s gay. I’ve been playing RS for 4 years and WoW for about 1 year, and I’m not maxed on RS but am on WoW. I play RS a lot more, by the way.

  106. Lol
    Posted September 7, 2008 at 9:21 pm

    I play both, and WoW kicks RS’s ass. With RS’s graphics update, all that was added was a few shadows, textures and a pitiful, fruitless argument saying “omg rs got a grafix update!111″, while WoW’s graphics are still better.

    RS is very limited because even though you can be 3 “classes”, in the end, at the MAX level (which takes months to years of GRINDING), you barely have the same amount of combat techniques that a 50 of any class has. Sure, you can do more “skills”, but nearly all of them are the same, boring concept. Thieving? Click, wait, repeat. Click, wait, repeat. Fishing, mining, woodcutting, firemaking, etc. etc. are the exact same thing; 0 challenge, just boring.

    I’m not lazy, I was 95, I realized it wasn’t even a game, it was a boring grind. Why would I spend months and months leveling my str, an extremely boring, painful grind? So I could hit 5-10 higher? I’m not going to waste my time basically doing a JOB that’s supposed to be a game. You can apply that logic to every “skill” in RS. On top of all of this, the community is nothing but immature brats, the graphics are still terrible, the animations are beyond sub par, there is 0 variety in gear and combat, honestly. Getting to 138 in RS means you can brag about how you ground and now sit around with your skill capes you ground so hard for and think they’re accomplishments. At 70 in WoW, real PVP, arenas, raids, heroics, etc. open up, and the real fun begins.

    the funniest part about this whole arguement is… that at least the people who play runescape ARE little kids, so of course they are immature. and all of you people who are still playing dumb little computer games, instead of actually doing something maybe, i don\’t know, OUTSIDE are probably more immature for your age than they kids are. why not get a job, get a girl, and get a life all of you.

    “…”, you may be too young and stupid to realize this, but older people have free time too. Instead of watching TV when they get home from work, whats wrong with playing games with family and friends? You fail to realize that most people who play WoW DO have jobs and/or school, and a lot are married and their spouses play. There’s nothing wrong with playing WoW as an adult, and if you think otherwise, you’re blatantly narrow minded and/or mentally deficient.

But you make adults look bad. Look at yourself. You are fighting with children. Just because you don’t like RS doesn’t mean the whole world should stop playing it, and switch to WOW and vice versa. Take a chill pill and go play WOW.

    In my opinion runescape is better, dont get me wrong WoW is fun and all but it can be kind of confusing, runescape is very simple which I like. Its just all around more fun, plus there is so much to do, you have like what 28 skills to do?

    But still both games are so different, they should just be in different categories.
    And Why does everyone keep saying Runescape is for little kids, I know so many little kids that play WoW.
    Anyone of any age can play any game.
    I just wish both communities could get along and learn from each other, both gamesd have bad and good qualities.

    If only they could mold into one game…

    Posted October 6, 2008 at 8:24 am

    Hey, I am going to make a unbiased reply here with my own personal opinion at the end. I have played both games for an incredibly long time. I played runescape for 4 years and Wow for 2 years. On runescape I have a lvl 101cmb, however he has 9 lvl 99’s including 99 Range, Mage, def and HP. That makes me one of the lowest lvl maxed tanks on the game. Along with this I also have 99 fishing and woodcut and thieving, so on so forth. The graphics are not good at all, but they are sufficient for what you need to do. Sure you cant make out facial expression like WoW or burst into dance with other character or NPC’s but for the simplicity of the game is that really needed?

    The combat system is very repetitive and can only be changed by using a different attack like range or mage, but the system remains the same in general. Runescape has a nack of making you intent on getting that next level, and your motivation lies within the heart of the community which in RS is very immature as many young children have access to the game. Since Pk’ing was removed runescape is not the game it used to be but gaining 99’s in skills remains just as fun, if not alot harder now that trading of any limits has been abolished ( i do disagree with this) Runescape is very much a solo game, where you train on your own and gain no benifit apart from the company, of having players around you. Certain monsters are a high level and may require a team but the teaming system is almost non existent and you just have to pretend to b part of a team. Overall runescape is an excellent game that is cheap to play in comparison to WoW.

    Wow is a game where you choose your gender and pick a race. Each race has a certain number of classes attached with it, for example a Human can play as a Mage, Rogue, Priest and so on, but cannot be certain others. This already introduces an aspect very different to runescape in that your charcater choice is very specialised and is more suited to people who have an idea of what they would like to do. You start off at lvl 1 and kill monsters, (known to the Wow community as “mobs”) at level 1 you need 400 experience to advance to level 2. You can do this in 3 ways, You gain experience for killing a mob, discovering a new area or completing a quest. There are arguements as too whether questing or grinding (the killing of a cerain mob over and over again) is faster. THE ANSWER IS QUESTING BTW lol.

    You can play solo and most people generally do, however at certain lvl points for exmaple lvl 18-24. You can enter dungeons with partically hard mobs designed only to be killed by a team of 5 people around your level. You ask for a team and all go in the dungeon together. This will get you very good gear that you could not have otheriwse got from normal mobs your level. The amount of armour and wepaons you can earn/loot is extensive and makes each character different. Like runescape you can raise skills but these are no where near as slow, and 1-375 (max lvl) can be achieved in hours.

    You continue questing and meeting new friends and killing mobs till you reach lvl (hopefuly exploring higher level dungeons like the one mentioned below as you level up. The game play is better than runescape and the graphics make the game more enjoyable. The pking system is now on a par with runescape after Pking was abolished, as now neither of the pking parts of each game offer any real benifits. in WoW pvp gear can be earned via Pking but this doesnt really help in the most difficult dungeons designed for the lvl 70’s

    Overall neither WoW or runescape can be classed as the better game as you will get addicted to either one you play. It all depends on what you enjoy best. If you like to just sit around and chat while chopping a few trees or leveling then runescape is the way to go as this is a very casual game. For the more Hardcore gamers, WoW will introduce you to some of the most entertaining and spectacular concoction of scenery and graphics to never ever leave you bored. There is always something to do on both games. Be it Raiding or Godwars :P

    Posted October 10, 2008 at 11:12 am

    I played both so…don’t assume I didn’t, World of warcraft isn’t easy to finance…$15 is a tad bit, plus the game itself, It can get incredibly repetitve, go into the town, get about 7 quests from random guys, do the quests, go back, get more quests untill you reach the next digit (10, 20, 30, 40 ,50) then you move into the next area, and do quests, and stuff, the real game doesn’t start untill 70, so I don’t see how people can put up with stuff like that, Runescape you don’t have to just constantly grind, yes, grind (kill a bunch of monsters over and over) you can train different skills, play mini games, pvp (which is very fun in runescape, wow it’s just…twinks ftw!) Most critics on runescape have just gotten to about level 30 in FREE PLAY the REAL GAME is P2P so you can’t critic on runescape if you havn’t played member for at least a month or so,

    So don’t be hating on runescape and say “Duh wow graphics > runescape pl0x!”

    First off, I do not play WoW… only RS. I’m not going to say RS owns or WoW sucks because I honestly would look dumb then since I never played it.

    These arguements really are pointless in my opinion… trolling RS players say WoW and such which I can see makes WoW mad. Some WoW players retaliate and say RS sux or something and that just leads to RS people saying RS owns and WoW sucks. It’s an endless cycle.

    Sure RS’s graphics aren’t up to par to WoW’s graphics… do I dislike SNES games any less than XBOX 360 games because of graphics? No. The community to RS sometimes disappoints me, but then again, there are great people in there. No community can be perfect. Surely WoW has some immature people too.

    RS has it’s good points, if it didn’t, I wouldn’t have played it for 5 years now. I’m also sure WoW has many good points as well. This bickering will get us no where. No game is 100% better than the other. All I’ll say is at the moment… I like RuneScape. Maybe someday I’ll try World of Warcraft and like it too. But for now, I’d just like to see the fighting stop (pointless goal I know).

    ~Thanks for reading.

    i liked runescape but it does get boring after a while

    i was level 104 on rs with a number of good items

    i prefer wow as its more enjoyable to play for me as a lot of my friends play WoW and only 1 of my friends plays rs, her names cheekykt13 on rs and i think she owns but not sure lol

    if your thinking about buying wow i strongly reccomend but if you prefer a game where u can relax, play rs as its easy t play

    another point is rs is more childs game, wherever you go you have arguements, get called a noob and so forth

    on wow this doesnt happen as everyone is paying a substantial amount of money to play the game

    ive played both and i like rs better because theres always something 2 do like pkin or staking ect. but in wow its really 99% quests and runescape has a way better pvp system but wen your a f2p all u really can do its pk wich does get boring after a little wile

    wow i have played and there and all i really liked was the mini games like arathi basin or warsong gulch but other than that theres not much too do

    but then again this is just my opinion u play what you wanna play and let people play what they wanna play after all why argue of 2 great games?

    IMO i think that both games are pretty solid. Since the major graphic update for RS and bringing back pking it has gotten alot better and you cant beat the price. As for WoW its graphics are better then RS’s, but like many before its the price that make people like it less. Now if it were the same Price as RS then it would be more popular, but since that probably wont happen my vote is for RS.

    Posted November 8, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    Well, I have played both games and I think runescape is kind of ruined. It started when Jagex took away pking and unbalanced trading. I know they brought pking back but it’s not the real pking. Jagex thought they were making the game better but it got worse in most points but better in some points. Runescape is basically skilling, questing and playing minigames. Now, on to WOW, WOW focuses on questing with a wide map to explore. Probably the only down side to WOW is the price. Most of WOW’s ideas are good but I’ve noticed RS updates that seem alot like WOW so they may be copying it a bit. If you asked me to choose between them I just can’t decide yet.

    World of warcraft is all round better. I mean sure, runescape is fun for a hwile, but if you play for more than a month every now and then, it becomes boring repepitive, and a collosal waste of time. Eventually you realise that you aren’t even playing a game anymore, your just clicking on trees and rocks and waiting for a few fireworks and the words ” YOu have reached level 99 woodcutting/fletching/smithing/fishing/clickingonstuff congratualatios, you’ve just watsed several days of your lifespan on this crap and have been bored out of your wits.

    But with WoW you can actually have fun, the combat is interesting, exciting even. Instead of a single click, go fight this, eat sharks in one bite combo that runescape has, WoW keeps you engaged using hotkeys and skills.

    Quite a lot of you people who are faithful to runescape will say “Tha pvp iz bettah becuz u get there stuffz” but quite plainly, you are simply wasting more of that person’s life by making have to do the repetitive skill even more to earn the item again.

  136. thats for u 2 find out
    Posted November 23, 2008 at 3:33 am

    ok rs is definately better.y, cus it has more skills,the quests are better,the summoning skill u can use to show off and you can fight with them,e.g a steel titan to fight and u can hit a 150 on it if ure a ranger,a dragon to show off and show u got money.

    now WoW has less skills,quests are just like get an item give it 2 sum1 or kill a monster,so for that reason rs is MUCH BETTER!!!

  137. Lol
    Posted November 25, 2008 at 11:16 am

    “thats for u 2 find out” is one reason you shouldn’t play RS; immature kids.
    1: RS is NOT better. Just no.
    2: “more skills” as in 1 or 2 more trade skills, and ALL, I repeat, **ALL** of them are repetitive, boring grinds that do nothing but give you a false sense of accomplishment. Your status in the game reflects nothing but how much TIME AND GRINDING you’ve done. You can play for 6 months in WoW and accomplish more than a guy who has played for a year. Go on RS, and you can’t, since you’re limited to the “click and wait” system.
    3: You act like WoW doesn’t have mounts, non combat pets, and combat pets. All showing that steel titan does is show “wow, this guy wasted weeks of his life repeatedly clicking and waiting”.
    4: I hit 1,000s on my 39. Bragging about hitting 150 shows you haven’t played WoW.
    5: Quantity =/= quality. WoW has 1 or 2 less, but they’re much, much more in depth.
    6: 2 choices, grind with nothing but a click and wait system against “monsters”, or do quests in various areas with tons of abilities and fighting styles to level. Also, RS’s quests don’t come CLOSE to Northrend’s.

    For these reasons, WoW is insanely better than RS. Unlike the kid up there, I have played BOTH.

    Anyone who says RS is better has never played in Northrend. Simple as that.

  142. Money argument
    Posted December 4, 2008 at 2:46 pm

    When people say ‘wow is more expensive than rs; therefore it’s worse’. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. A game not decided by its pricetag but by its contents. What people are getting mixed up with is value for money, which is an entirely different concept. If wow were $1000 it would still be a very good game, even if it was awful value for money. Say you bought a Ferrari for a $10,000,000. The car isn’t physically any worse by being this price, just bad value for money

  143. Skill factor
    Posted December 4, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    Rs is very simplistic game compared to wow. Wow requires a high level of social interaction in both pve and pvp, and a lot of discipline, which rs players players who are generally younger than 13 can’t cope with.

    In wow high level pve is much better than rs. Rs has its level cap so high that hardly anyone can reach it, so there can hardly be any sort of organized pve. In wow raiding requires a high level of skill (many bosses will kill the group through 1 person’s mistake), and the skill is well rewarded. A difficulty tier system of raids makes skill the primary factor in being good.

    Similarily in pvp, although gaining honor gear does not require much skill, to get arena gear it is immensely difficult, as it is not about your accumulation of points but the rating you have. In general wow pvp is so much better than rs, mainly because in wow there might be 20 abilities you use regularly during a battleground. In rs its all about using one ability – hit.

    In rs being good comes down to length of time played in every respect, from how long you right-click fish to how long you attack creatures.

    Rs is for people who are too immature to understand wow.

    WoW has much better grouping/guild systems.
    RS’s graphics still blow horribly.
    WoW has been full screen for 4 years.

    I love WoW over basically everything in Runescape, besides the fact that WoW has classes. WoW graphics are better, it has over 2000 quests, there’s much more content, the players are more mature, and PvP is much better.

    Game wise, WoW is better.
    But you have to pay $10 more a month. It targets 16 – 14 year ods for a reason.

    runescape is a game that maybe my whole street whil play everyday because of how it has its addiction.so wow is better for that.
    Now in quests i think “thats for you find out” is right.All you do is get an item give it 2 sum1 and it is $15 a month.if my dad found that i payed that hed payed that he prob killed me.

    Now i think the games are relly even but i think RS is slightly better cus its free if u wnt and quests are better.

    -Dice roll combat
    -set gear for certain levels
    -boring click and do skill system
    -less than 200 quests, which are fairly interesting and sometimes quite fun
    -fairly high number of face and hair customizations
    -some decent minigames

    -WoW-

    -Huge amount of gear
    -gear and skill based combat
    -A LOT of quests
    -huge areas
    -Graphics, though little dull against todays general standard, are better
    - A bit less face customization
    - A majority of the people are mature as a opposed to ten year olds
    -Grouping. guilds and raids
    - more skill based focus as opposed to grinding eg, enchanters enchanting for other people
    - instances
    - huge expansions

    and that’s off the top of my head

    Okay im pretty much neutral on this for several reasons. I think WoW is a much better put together game, with cooler features better graphics and all of that stuff. However I can’t even play it because it is 50 dollars for the game, and 15 bucks a month after that which is way to high for someone going to college soon. Runescape, for all that it lacks in graphics and gameplay, remains free, and can be played for 5 dollars a month. I think if WoW perhaps made a similar members, for 15 dollars a month, and then free, i would put it way above runescape. However not everyone is rich enough to afford WoW

    Runescape is much better. All people who have played runescape before must have thought it was really stupid. But now it is much better and more fun. RUnescape free-player mode is nothing compared to runescape-members. I have been a free player for one year and a member for four months. Compared to free players, runescape member version is much more fun. Over one hundred quests. When I mean over one hundred quests, I mean maybe over two hundred. And most of them aren’t hard at all. Some take weeks/days/hours/minutes. They are great challenges. Over ten million items and five hundred something music. You also have much mor ethan just to kill. Unlike WOW all people play runescape. Kids-Adults. Some parents play with there children. There are new graphix, items, quests, etc. I think runescape population is increasing. They are also in a bunch of different languages. You should all try runescape. Note, do not go on
    runesca-beta.info because it is a fraud website. My user is Shadowxball. I am a member not too rich or poor. I also had gotten my account locked because I typed my user in Runescape-beta.info. I am fighting for it back.

    First off, I started out on RS at 12. I played for two years, and the reason i kept playing is because i could easily understand it! Simple as that. At first, i just played it to pass time, but i soon found it was easy to level, easy to get my skills up. Then, I found out the farther i went, the more complicated it got, the more difficult rather. It gave me a challenge to get my skills up. Then, i loved it.I love games were its complicated to play but easy to understand with a little effort.
    Then, my friend introduced me to WoW at 14, and ive never looked back. I loved the complicated way the game was set up, and how easy it was to learn everything with just a bit of effort. Pretty soon, i had a 70 pally, and i still wasnt looking back. Its one of those games were the more you play, the more you learn, and when you think you’ve got everything figured out, guess what? You missed something. It wasnt as simple as RS, but was more fun for me.
    People see think differently, and everyone needs to learn that. If you like simple games easy to understand, then play RS!! IF you like complicated games,then play WoW! Or play both! I dont care!! I really dont like the $15 a month, but i pay it, and i play on dialup. That proves that you dont need fast internet, i just got a terrible lagg in a few places, but I still dont care!
    In my opinion, WoW beats RS in lots of ways, and RS beats WoW in lots of ways to! And contrary to what everyone says: WoW isnt only teens! I know people who play that range from 9 to about 38 or so. Parents and children. Husband and wife.
    People come up with alot of crap about a game they’ve never played just to keep someone else from playing it. Most people who play RS have never played WoW, but have heard people talk about it, how hard it was for their small mind to comprehend it and figure if that person couldnt understand it, then they must be God and no one else but rocket scientists could understand it. I just wish people would play the game before they rant about it.
    I agree its kinda difficult to put 2 and 2 togeather at first, but the more you play, trust me, the easier it is to understand.
    In my opinion: WoW beats RS because: Internal mailing network. Different regions with different level monsters instead of them all packed togeather in one region. ALOT more invetory space. The ability to join guilds that are actually established, not clans that are unistablished and you dont know were/who all your members are. A HEALING class that doesnt require money to buy runes to heal your allies. Opposing factions. A MOUNT!! Level based battleground system, not were a lvl 3 fights a 98 as in RS.
    And RS beats WoW with: All the skills on one account instead of 2 per character. The ability to be a mage AND a warrior. Uniqueness, the ability to be a warrior one min, and a ranger the very next second. The ability to take down enemies coming at you, one with mage, the next with arrows, the next with a sword.
    Each game has its own unique features, so pick one!! Or both!! Ive said what ive wanted to say.

    See, i start randomly reading some of these posts and they say pretty much the same thing: Well, ive never playing WoW, but im sure it sucks since ive never played it. Well, i played WoW for like a day and i got bored(Liars) I play WoW!! RS sucks because it has lower graphics and i got bored while playing Well, I have dial up.
    Sure, theres some stuff i didnt add earlier, but really people? ranting on a game you’ve never played or because it has lower graphics? Graphics arnt everything, they just add to the game atmosphere. And everthing gets boring after so long. Even WoW gets boring after a while. You find me an internet game you can play for a week straight wighout getting bored and ill do a funny dance :) . And some people say dial-up is obsolete? Well, if you wanna give me $70 a month to pay for the high speed internet, be my guest!! But internet speed only affects a few things, and you hardly notice them after so long. It doesnt affect much as long as you keep all your details on low like i have to.

    Ahmed,
    On WoW, you dont have to spend all day doing something. Quests can be turned in whenever you feel like it. PvP worlds are a major part of WoW, were most regions are hostile and you kill the opposite faction whenever you see them, so this is just like your little “wilderness.” And I bet you’ve never played WoW, so how would you know anything about it?

    Posted January 7, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    Yorkfootball,
    ROFLMFAO!! That little paragraph was perhaps the funniest/ saddest post ive seen on here!! First off, You can play with only the origanal CD, and the monthly payment, unless you wanna buy the expansions, which give you ALOT more stuff to do! Its not that expensive! You dont need those books! And 10 day free trail? Grow up! You think because one game has a free account service, that every game should have one? 10 days is more than enough time to change your mind, trust me! And each race has its own abilities, so if you want to be a warrior, then go make one! Each class has its own pros and cons, and if you want to play a different class, then its easy! And unlike RS, its easy to gear yourself when you start out and you dont have to do melle all the time (unless you actually know how to play, but most people who start out have to turn to melle to get the money to buy thier runes/arrows) And, WoW has WAY more emotes! And on WoW, we have GUILDS, with an actuall list of names and rules! RS is anarchy when it comes to guilds. You have to keep guessing if they are still in the guild or not, and you cant be switching between guilds in WoW like you can in RS (sure, you can, but they wont like it lol. You have to actually leave the guild and have them invite you back.)
    AND: you think that WoW is a frickin walk in the park?!? It only takes like a week to get to 80? LOL! You’ve got to be kidding me! Let me know when you can hit 80 from level one on your own in a week. Please let me know. It took me, a slow leveler, 4 and 1/2 months to hit level 70 (before the new expansion came out). RS is a walk in the park up against WoW. And i’m so glad that narrow-minded people like you can’t understand it because your so used to RS and its simpleness, that you actually have to put some effort into learning how to play WoW. So next time you start judging a game, actually get into it. If a level 80 player says RS is better, than we’ll actually have an arguement, instead of this simple mindedness.

  168. Lol
    Posted January 7, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Didn’t expect anything less from a 10 year old RS fanboy.

    “equalling over 100$”
    Try 60-80 for the entire game.

    “one race can do whatever magic melee whatever”
    And with everything put together in RS, it doesn’t have as much variety as ONE WoW class.

    “on runescape over 2000 people are on at 7am!!!!”
    Is this BRAGGING?

    “runescapeha mor games emotes specials and clubs i have one with 40 people at school and im 10″
    WoW has more mini games, 100s of specials, and has a MUCH larger playerbase. All you’re doing is showing us how pathetic the RS population is; a bunch of 10 year olds that haven’t played WoW but claim RS is better.

    “getting acne getting dumped because your anerd playing the pc all the time being picked on by older jocks so be proud of yourselves wow players for being soooo mature by play a fricken pc game!!!”
    The only reason you don’t have acne is because you haven’t hit puberty, but don’t worry kiddo, you’ll get it soon. You also act like you’re not a nerd, but I bet you sit there cutting wood for hours and hours if not days of your life thinking it’s “fun”. We don’t think we’re super mature for playing WoW, we KNOW we are superior for playing a GOOD game while idiots like you are stuck on Grindscape.

    “n runescape can go to lvl 146 combat well wow can go up to 90 with one third of the work”
    138 Combat*
    Level 80*
    1/5 of the work*
    That’s right, instead of years of boring, repetitive grinding to level like on RS, you only need a few months of questing, instancing, GROUPING, etc. to hit 80, then raids, battlegrounds, Wintergrasp, heroics, arenas, etc. open up, instead of just sitting there on RS.

    “so be proud wow to be moe mature so 10 year olds cant understand your game be proud”
    What part of “You’re a pre-pubescent 10 year old RS fanboy who has never played WoW” don’t you understand?
    By the way, I’m a former 95 member, I know more than 2x about RS as you do, and I can truly, honestly say the game blows. Hard. It’s all grinding, no fun. Want a good game? Play WoW.

    clearly you a few posts back have never played WoW.
    to say that you need to ask to do PvP and its onyl one on one is not true.
    You can do 1v1 pvp on players who are your allys, thats a duel.
    but theres also – 10 vs 10 battlegrounds, a 40vs40 battleground, one with as many players as join which has driveable siege weapons and stuff, arena tournaments, (2v2, 3v3 and 5v5 teams) plus world pvp which is always a risk when in contested areas as enemy players can attack you or sometimes team up on you 3v1 and stuff.
    and of course raiding enemy citys, 100+ players riding in and having a war in different citys

    “i have played it before did the free trial to see how suckish it was i liked the graphics a lot but still dont like it.wheres the challenge in wow its kind of a rip off”

    Big words from someone who probably couldn’t hit 10. Question is, what is hard in RS?

    “but im still be a runescape fanboy till im around 14 playing rated m games for every game system known to man.”

    A 14 year old who couldn’t hit 10 in WoW saying WoW sucks but RS is good and thinks he’s mature for playing kiddy games like Halo 3? YOU’RE SO UNIQUE! THERE ARE NO KIDS OUT THERE LIKE YOU, REALLY.

    “i got a new account from my cousin old runescape member level 126 cha ching he even thinks wow blows.”

    Amazing how you brag about getting an account handed to you. Too boring to level up an account on your own, isn’t it? So much for a great game. Did he give up at level 6 on WoW too?

    “wow sucks”

    Witty, original, and backed up with an hour’s worth of experience in a 1,000+ hour game. You’re truly a genius for your age, and should write a book about how insightful you are. I’d read it.

    RS is trash, just like the community within it.

    just recently i got into world of warcraft and the pvp is 1000 times better, it requires skill where as runescape is painfully simple, in rs you are a human guy or girl who can just go out and do everything, no diversity and all the people who play rs are generally angry and it has a terrible community

    I like wow a thousand times more, the actual endgame only starts once u hit max levl, while rs has that too, there are to few bosses around, nor are they challenging, click prayer, click food, attack, and mostly, stay awake :/.
    raiding (group of 25/10 man) takes alot of coordination, and, they are real fun. have been trying to down sarth 3d here, (only 2 days so far, we’re learning). things are hard, and everyone has to do what they have to, there is little room for error, and all in all, quite hard to keep your dps up, with everything happening around there (damn i got offtopic…)

    i only started in tbc, having killed illidan/archimonde (not done swp) and now having cleared anything but sarth 3d.

    the community is by far nicer aswell imo.
    get to any “city” in rs, all u c is noob things, people asking gp, or try to steal from you…

    well, people may claim the one realm from blizzard is bad, but it just is full of epic win, if u don’t behave, u will be known on the realm, and have a bad name, not fast accepted in raid guilds etc…

    what i do like, is the hardness of some quests. they are actually a achievement :) the only great quest i’ve seen so far, was the wrathgate one, and those that told about the lore out there…

    yes, i’m a loregeek

    also, those friggin dummys that tried wow trial, well, it’s nothing like it, the game starts at 80, and the first 70 levls are quite unfun, compared to 70-80 levling (or 68*), yet, still alot more fun then rs…
    also, how huge these are compared to eachother …
    31445 items in wow, 19554 NPC’s 2632 objects (guess q items amongst them)7785, of which 4979 doable by horde, and 5150 by the alliance. 42155 different spells (npc and boss spells included)152 different zones (dungeons included). 74 factions to gain reputation with (not all for the same faction though) and near 1000 achievements.

    also, try the game with addons, they simplify alot, and, make it more appealing for your own (not that the standard ui is bad)

    I personally like Runescape over WoW. Even though I hardly did any members quests, I thought the key thing to Runescape being better are the extra skills. WoW is Kill… Kill… and more Kill… Runescape has fletching, woodcutting, firemaking, mining, smithing, thieving, agility, herblore, construction, hunter, slayer, prayer, runecrafting, farming, summoning, cooking, fishing, and crafting (sorry if i missed any non combat skills).

    Plus, the new HD is really good! The graphics feel comfterable now. I feel that Jagex did a really good job on the HD.

    Idk what all the fuss is about…. There is a clear cut winner in this. The winner is certianly WoW. Not to put any RS players down but honestly your game is no match to World of Warcraft idk why people evn put them in the same category. Yopu basically should put RS against Pong. same graphics basically… I know its not just about craphics but as you look between the two WoW may be a bit “cartoonie” but clearly it adds deapth and alot of the things they put in the game tie back to previous Warcraft games. RS is just boring… and its all lagg too many people and clicking to move is just sickening. In WoW you can move without having somebody crowd the same mobs as you and all try and kill it (btw in RS takes forever to kill 1 mob) wow theres plenty to go around with good respawn rates. Plus loot doesnt stay on the ground for somebody to come by and snatch it up. Detah is also a good comparison in RS you die you lose everything basically in WoW you just become a ghost and run vback or rezz at spirit healer. Ive played both and ive played WoW going on almost 5 years and RS you make 1 character and do same thing so after like lvl 7 you get bored as hell and quit not worth paying for so you play for free but its lame when you cant do even 1/3 as paying members but its not worth even 5 dollars. In my opinion if you are financially stable and can afford the requirements for WoW go out and buy it. It is surely worth the money… Dont hate on my views but the RS players can still play but im just giving an opinion and if you have a chance try WoW its a ver addictive game and once yopu try it you may even fall in love with it i know I did……

    Posted February 14, 2009 at 9:58 am

    Starting off. I am an F2P (free to play) Runescaper. I\’m not against WoW… I haven\’t actually tried it. I\’ve just heard points of view and seen people play it.
    One of the main arguments for WoW and against runescape is that the graphics are a million times better. When my friend played, I looked at the graphics, they aren\’t actually *EXTREMELY* better.. the floor is kinda *blurry* like… if you had a small picture, then tried to make it bigger. My friend said that that was because the performance was set to low. He turned it to high, but to me.. it looked no different.. It was just lagging. The character graphics? They\’re about the same.. I can see the straight edges on the creepers and the graphics on the squares of the character is okay, I\’d rate that a bit better than in runescape. I didn\’t look at the actual character closely, but from what I saw, the actual player actually had pretty good graphics. So I guess I would rate that better that runescape.
    BUT
    Now that you can play runescape in fullscreen, the graphics aren\’t as bad. You can select the anti-alias option which takes out the pixelated edges of the characters, monsters and so on.
    Shadows.
    When my friend was playing, it was at \’night\’ in the game, so the shadows kinda made it hard to see things.. normal. But the shadows didn\’t actually look that worked on. For runescape… I cant say the same sadly, but if the scenery is actually dark or \’night\’, it\’s not as hard to tell the difference between a tree and the grass in runescape.
    CHARACTER CLOSEUP
    When my friend played WoW, I could actually see the character quite close up and the detail in the armour and accessories, I have to admit, you don\’t get this in runescape and it\’d be nice to see it.

    Gameplay
    -Skills
    I haven\’t actually seen the \’skills\’ in WoW, but i\’ve heard that they go up to level 300. One of the arguments against the skills in runescape is that they are repetitive. My argument against this is… How can a skill not be repetitive? To get it to the maximum level, it has to be tough doesn\’t it? It also has to be worth it which isn\’t shown if you are an f2p, sadly.. A skillcape shows your mastery of a certain skill.. which required a lot of patience to get. If it wasn\’t repetitive, then what would it be? do a whole load of different things every-time? then it wouldn\’t be very consistent.. make it easy so it doesn\’t last so long? then everyone would have mastered every single skill. If the main part of the game is the skills and mastery of them, then they have to be tough to achieve don\’t you agree? I don\’t actually know what the reward is for mastering the skills in WoW, but another friend of mine said that it\’s not very significant.

    COMBAT
    One of the main arguments about the two games is the way the combat system works. I\’ve seen my friends play WoW. All they seem to do is kill. Every-time. No-matter the level. I\’m not saying it\’s a bad thing though. Some people prefer a game with a variety of skills to train, rather than just killing things with friends or not with friends, for or not for a quest.

    QUESTS
    In free to play, there aren\’t a lot of quests at all. In WoW, I believe that there are a lot of quests, not sure how many, but i\’ve heard there are a lot. A runescape member has about 140 quests, not sure how many for sure though. But it\’s not about the quantity. It\’s about the Quality. The aim in a quest in WoW is to KILL right? nothing but KILLING things? If this isn\’t true, please leave a (NON HATEFUL) comment. In runescape, the quests are based on…. I admit, Killing, talking to players, and… more killing. The rewards? In WoW, I believe that you get armour, in runescape, you get cash, the ability to weild or do something, xp in a skill which can be quite significant depending on the quest.

    Paying
    For me, there are 3(+1) options for the paying. Runescape for free, Runescape membership, WoW (and the new expansion pack?? Comment on this too plz.) Starting off, minor debate between free runescape play and paying for it. Paying, you get access to about a hundred more quests, the ability to buy and weild a skillcape to show your mastery in a skill, thousands more items, a larger map, lots more ways to train skills and a few more skills. I might have missed some things. If you can\’t pay for whatever reason, or you just don\’t want to. The choice is yours to keep the account as a free player. As a pay player, if you decide to stop paying, or cant for whatever reason, you have to sell or get rid of your items or else you wont be able to do anything as a free player. As a free to play, I think it\’s worth it not paying for a game. If a free game is entertaining enough for you. That\’s great. Back to WoW. $15 per month, is three times as much as the $5 you have to pay for runescape membership, and if you think about it. And infinite times as much as it would cost you as a free runescape player. Another way to think about it is. Lets say you play for… a year and a half? 18 months, $270 spend on a year and a half of entertainment and what do you have to show for it in real life? Nothing much. Other than a bit of showing off to friends who also played WoW at the time. Is this really worth the $270? (90 as a runescape member and absolutely free for a free runescaper) Games are a waste of your early life. I feel that this is true. So if you\’re gonna waste your life, don\’t waste your money as well.

    Economy
    The runescape economy has the grand exchange site, not un-similar to the real life economy, with investments and all. The runescape economy is run by how many items the players of runescape buy or sell. Somewhat the same as the real life economy, with supply and demand. I think that this is educational, and if you disagree, then it is at least a little related to the real life and can be used in real life? Cuz if you\’re not focused on real life at all… then… you don\’t have a life? [don\'t feel offended, not meant to be offensive]
    The WoW economy. I don\’t actually know if one exists. I\’ve just heard of a bidding system where people just go along with what other people buy or sell. Similar to what runescape used to be like before the grand exchange and trading system changed. I think this would be similar to a bidding system in real life. But, as I know of, People don\’t do an e-bay related buy and sell bidding method of making money. So this isn\’t that helpful to real life is it? Comment.

    This is all I\’ve got for now, please be free to leave HELPFUL comments, leave your truthful point of view and have fun with whatever game you play :)

    Cute from someone who hasn’t played WoW, trying to compare them.

    Gameplay
    -Skills

    Runescape’s skills define boring, repetitive, monotonous grinding. How do you cut a tree? You click, and you wait for you character to do the same old same old chopping motion a few times, and wait until that tree is cut down. What do you do then? Go to the next tree. Once you have your inventory filled (which can’t be expanded, by the way), you go to a bank, bank em, repeat. Now, replace woodcutting and “chopping” animation with any “skill” and any boring, repetitive motion. That is Runescape’s skilling system.
    What are the rewards for RS’s skilling system? Access to a few more quests in the game, some bragging rights, a mini game or 2, and a useless cape. Yep, your grand reward for spending weeks to months of your life grinding on things boring enough to make you play or watch other things while your char does the work is a useless cape. How rewarding.
    Are RS’s skills “hard”? No, they aren’t. Young children that play RS often confuse “takes insane amounts of boring, challengeless grinding” with “difficult”. No, your only roadblock is boredom.
    WoW’s skilling system is a bit different; every 5 levels or so you unlock new recipes and such for your crafting profession (which you can have 2 of at a time, not including Fishing, Cooking, and First Aid, which you can have all of). The max level is 450, not 300. There are 3 gathering professions and 8 crafting professions, and each of the crafting ones have specializations; for example, an Alchemist can specialize in Transmutation, Elixirs, or Potions, giving better rewards when making such. The rewards for gathering professions are great money or resources for your profession, plus Mining gives you HP, Herbalism gives you a free healing spell, and Skinning gives you extra Crit. Each crafting profession includes things that only the person with it benefits from amongst the rest. Overall, WoW’s slaughters RS’s. No grinding needed, not monotonous and boring, and yields better rewards.

    -Combat
    RS’s combat system is amongst the worst of any MMO I’ve played. You click an enemy, and wait (sounds like woodcutting). At 60 attack, you get a spec bar. Woo. 1 special move after so much grinding. There are 3 styles of fighting, none of which offer much variety at all, and you’ll find yourself simply clicking and waiting on nearly everything. Horrible, to say the least, just as bad as sitting there “skilling”.
    WoW’s system gives you more abilities as you level; you start out with 1 or 2, and end up with ~45-50 by 80. Talents add on to this, so on top of the 10 classes you have, there are 3 talents for each. You’ll never find 2 people who play the same way, you’ll always have SOMETHING to do in combat instead of tabbing to a Youtube video, and being “good” at WoW’s combat system is much more fun and difficult than RS’s. Overall, WoW is insanely better; more variety, more action, better movements, more strategy involved, RS’s combat system is behind WoW’s by a few decades.

    Quests-
    RS has less, much less, however, I admit RS’s go far more in depth than MOST of WoW’s quests (not nearly all); RS’s require you to run around like a headless chicken getting seemingly useless items and talking to NPCs and such, but generally they take longer and are harder. The rewards? Most are pretty bad, and there isn’t much incentive to do most. Some give great, most give bad. The quests in RS help VERY, VERY little in leveling.
    WoW has more quests, and are generally tasks; however, the rewards are always worth getting, the quests lessen grinding in leveling to almost extinction, and prevent the need to sit there farming gold for gear. These 2 things aren’t exactly a comparison, as Quests in RS are sideshows like Achievements are in WoW. Add questing to the “leveling” department of WoW; where it slaughters RS in ANOTHER aspect.

    Paying-
    Make it simple; you can play RS for free and get very little content, or you can pay 5 bucks (heard its 6-7 now) a month for some more content. However, while the quantity increases, the quality stays the same; very bad. You still grind, there is still no real challenge, and everything else is basically the same with another segment added on.
    With WoW, you can just buy the main game for 20-25 bucks, which will last you to 55 or 58; depending on if you want to make a Death Knight (and you will), you buy the first and second expansions for a total of ~50 dollars together. Between this, you are paying 50 cents or less a day to keep playing. Worth it? As someone that used to have a 95 member, yes, it is. If you’re going to spend time on something, make sure you’re truly liking and enjoying it. Last I checked, it’s hard to enjoy a game you pay for that’s basically a job due to SO MUCH GRINDING. Don’t forget, you get 50 chars on one WoW account as well.

    Economy-
    RS is a restricted economy nowadays, WoW is a free, 100% player controlled economy. Supply and Demand exist, prices fluctuated when certain updates come out that affect an item (Dream Shards, for example). You’re clearly completely clueless about this issue, moreso than the others, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO COMPARE A GAME YOU PLAY TO A GAME YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT?

    As someone who has played both, WoW dominates RS in every aspect of gaming except Quest Depth, and there are still a few dozen exceptions in WoW’s case. Nothing in RS I ever did came close to the Death Knight starter chain. Please, feel free to comment.

    RS and WoW target different segments of the market (economics ftw ^_^ ) so comparing the two is pretty useless…

    As you’ve mentioned, RS is a lot more simple than WoW… which suits kids. Also, paying for it doesn’t hurt their parent’s pockets nearly as much as it would if they played WoW.

    WoW is more complicated, and yes a lot better (my brother is currently playing the trial version, no way he’s getting the membership for it, can’t really afford it, hence the reason why we have RS membership) but its access is highly limited, partially by the system requirements (both our computers meet them, not that high nowadays) but mainly by the cost of actually playing the game.

    Posted March 9, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    … I played runescape for a Really Really long time. like i started like 4 years ago, When i was like 9 (lol) andd i liked it.. it wasn’t until like a year later when i actually bought the membership and i loved the game after that i mean, back then the whip was like 3.5m and i had to have one and i spent all summer on it, eventually i got into a hardcore gaming mode and by the next summer i was playing like 17 hours a day, i was in the #1 80+ clan in the game and i had been everywhere, i knew like everything about the game and although i didn’t have the best stuff i loved the game. anyways after playing 17 hours a day (sometimes even from 24-32+) i was crazy about it, i didn’t really do anything but PvP but it was crazily fun. i Got banned for RWIT “buying Gold” at like the last day of summer i mean i was only like lvl 94 but i had like 10m+ in cash and like 15m in items and 1400+ total and like 85 str and att i was pretty much pure pker and stakeer but it was gone. SNAP! gone forever. I mean honestly the game is run by like 5 year olds. When i got banned it was because my cousin owed me money because i gave him Guthans, a whip and like 2m to spend on items so he could have “Fun” while playing, when he payed me back he bought the gold and i got banned for it, now he’s a lvl 110+ who has like everything he wants. I made several accounts after getting banned but pretty much all of my time was spent complaining of how much i hated Jagex But honestly i could never quit, i mean i play guitar and everything but my life is just so BOREING without runescape … i don’t even know what i did before runescape… it’s kinda lame and i really want to make my lvl 96 a mem again but i just decked out my computer and i have the discs for wow and Money isn’t really a problem.

    The only problem is, i’ve played wow on the demo (never the full game) and everyone tells me it’s nothing like the full but, the demo was just a bunch of running a round and killin monsters/ whatever there is to kill. it wasn’t really like i was haveing fun just killing a bunch of time. i don’t really care what the game is like i just like to have it be interactive and they both are but wow is just like buying whatever is new to me and aimlessly wandering around running from things. idk im just not used to it maybe? anyways im really bored right now and i don’t know what i should get, i mean i ask people and anyone who is stuck on runescape (like lvl 70+ mems) tells me that wow sucks, and anyone who is stuck on wow tells me RS sucks… I just don’t know what to do because i don’t feel like wasting a bunch of money. i mean if i waste like countless days on rs and it never get’s better than i’ll be ticked but if i spend all my money finishing my computer upgrades and playing wow and not likeing it i’ll be even more angry. i mean if i wanted to reassure myself i’d get an xbox 360 and xbox live or a Fender Stratocaster guitar or something, but xbox get’s boreing after a while and guitar gets pretty tiring when theirs nothing to learn or you have cuts on your finger tips from playing too much, plus they both cost like $1200 (if i get sucked into Xbox then i’ll never stop buying games until the next system comes out…)
    Anyways i just need something fun that i can be interactive with,…
    i Know this discussion is just a bunch of What i do is better or whatever to you guys and the comments are 50/50 i just don’t really know what to do atm? really i could get wow and have a bunch of fun maybe, or get RS and still be able to afford Xbox live and like 2-3 sweet games???

    anywho you should all stop fighting everyones opinion is diff. BUT I NEED A GAME TO PLAY!!!!!

    Posted March 9, 2009 at 11:10 pm

    Btw i think part of the reason everyone who plays runescape then goes to wow is that, on runescape, let\’s face it THE QUESTS ARE BOREING!!! and people don\’t really like questing… well. on Wow you don\’t really grind monsters but do more of quests thing about this, their like backwards if you play wow to Runescape you\’ll hate the game because you quest non-stop trying to get better (when in runescape grinding is the only real way to get better) and then you go from runescape to wow (in wow quests are pretty much the best Ways to get better and if you play rs and constantly grind you\’ll think that\’s the way to do WoW and after grinding monsters on WoW for an hour or 2 you want to kill yourself!) really it\’s kinda backwards and i think that\’s why peoples opinions sway so much.

  201. Lol
    Posted March 10, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    As an ex-95 member, let me reassure you, it isn’t the quests that drive people away from Runescape; it’s everything else.
    Let’s face it, the combat sucks ass. No question here, by far the worst combat system of any “legit” MMO out there.
    Skilling? Nothing but a boring grind. None take any skill, they aren’t challenging, and the rewards suck.
    The graphics, music, sound, etc. also just make the experience worse.
    The main thing keeping children on the game is a false sense of accomplishment. I’m sure you can verify this. That little feeling when you reach a little goal, that is what keeps people there. News flash, that’s not a real accomplishment on RS, nothing is. Nothing is hard, nothing is really fun, nothing is engaging.
    Meanwhile, on WoW, you’re never having to grind, you’re always going somewhere else, and the leveling takes a fraction of the time.
    The combat is good. By 10 you have ~6 combat abilities, and you keep gaining them. At 10, you start getting talent points. Yep.
    The professions, while you can only have 2 of them, add more to the game to both you and others, while not taking months/years of your life to grind up. That’s right, no more trips to the same old nodes and the same old bank.
    The graphics are decent, they’re a HUGE step up from Runescape’s even on the lowest settings. Music and sound are great too.
    Once you actually, you know, get out of the starting area, learn what you’re doing, and find a class you like, the game is great. Most RS players saying WoW sucks haven’t played it. Ask them sometime. Ask for a name/realm, anything under 70, they’re clueless. Most WoW players are ex-RS players; in a major city, just ask in trade chat about Runescape, watch the replies pour in.
    TLDR: WoW is better, coming from an ex-95 member, actually play before judging, if you liked RS you’ll love WoW.

    Well.. People really talk about the retarded 5 dollar thingy.. >.< World of Warcraft need 15s bucks.. but thats like only 3 runescape mems... !5 dollars on wow gives you 50 chars around all realms.. with a limit of 10 per realm. O.o What now??? :D
    Btw.. I play both.. =P

    Posted March 17, 2009 at 2:39 am

    I have played both games and I’m going to try to offer some decent critique. This is coming from a lvl 72 gnome death knight and a 78 melee attacker, i forgot the details.

    The WoW price is totally worth it, but I dont give a %^&* about graphics. Also, RS rule enforcing is crap and gets you banned really easily. It also sensors words for no apparent reason. In RS quests are a waste of time and hard to do, and not rewarding (except for a few like Monkey Madness). The only way to trade is to grind.

    The MMO aspect is much funner in WoW with instances, raids, BGs with an objective and guilds. You can say that you can take people’s stuff in bounty hunter, but really, what ^&*(ing moron would go into bounty hunter with full guthans, an abyssal whip and 20 mil… really… Also, in WoW there are two opposing factions, Alliance (alli) and horde (horde) this enables raids on capital cities and pvp everywhere, not just in minigames. Skills in RS and WoW (esp WoW) are a complete waste of time and worthless.

    In WoW, you can get mounts and flyers and stuff. There are also gryhons and windriders etc. on set flight paths. The only enchanced mode of transportation in RS is Lumbridge home teleport which is a total comy of hearthstones.

    Overall i think WOW kicks RS’s &*( WOW FTW!!!!!!

    i used to play wow underage and my mom wudnt let me so i had to give it up. I went back to runescape like the day after so i have a good comparison….
    Wow is WAY more in depth as far as map, items, monsters, and gameplay. However, wow doesnt have mosster list and all of its drops and stuff like that, wich runescape duz have. WoW is much harder to level but it puts out an ever-extending challenge with the new updates. I think overall wow gets a 9.5 and runescape gets an 8. I do have to give props to runescape for its better guides and lists, but wow is a better game. both are fun but wow is fun for longer with runescape only a short time.
    (last note:) i do like runescape free playing mode as you do not have to pay wich u have to in wow. Give it up to both 4 bein good games… wows better

    Why do you people bother arguing over 2 games that if people found out you played it in real life would make you a social reject. To add to that, you also play the game/s which wastes your time and money which makes you again a social reject and finally not only do you waste time playing the games but then you have to go ahead and argue about it making you even more of a social reject. Stop playing stupid games such as these and wasting your lives and try and find a job, or get some friends.

    Wow is and always will be better.
    There is no comparison between the two because wow dominates.

    Wow- 9.6/10
    Runescape 7/10

    Another thing..
    Some people in the Runescape community are immature.
    Almost everywhere i go i see someone say…
    “Press 333 if you need a bf”.

    Or

    “Press 222 if you need a gf”

    I mean come on seriously?

    You don’t see that in WoW and you never will, because the player base is much more mature.

    Another thing PvP..

    If you look at some WoW PvP videos on youtube and compare them to the ones on Runescape, WoW’s PvP is much more complex.

    RS has ~1/50 of the quests that WoW does.
    Congratulations, you’re FINALLY getting less of a language barrier after almost 8 years. Too bad WoW has had an optional filter since release.
    Leveling in RS being easy is an understatement. A 9 year old with Downs could get anything on RS to 99. RS is still terrible compared to WoW. You’ve clearly never played it, hence, why you’re so clueless.

    “JvdAmdShdt”, you could’ve just stopped at “I never played WOW”. RS has terrible gameplay all around, other than cost, there is no reason to play it over WoW. WoW has better gameplay, graphics, and community all around, and this is coming from someone who plays both.
    Runescape is awful, WoW is good, end of story.

    By the way, to all of the idiots that say runescape is made in java, you’re wrong. Runescape’s client was made in java because java has web applets so you can play runescape from any web browser that supports java applets (pretty much every web browser). The actual runescape server that the java runescape client connects to is made in c/c++.

    Ok ive never played wow but runescape did do a graphic update and now you can play runescape in fullscreen
    i am not saying runescape graphics are better than wow graphics
    Im just saying runescape has better graphics than when most of these people posted about runescape graphics

  230. Who cares?
    Posted May 15, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    I used to play runescape but i quit because it was mediocre, sometimes childish themes, TERRIBLE storyline, bad graphics, (and yes ive played with the new and improved graphics), and many many many other things….. But i tried just the trial version and i could already tell it was way better.the gameplay was good, never childish, wonderful storyline, great graphics, and many many other things. Rs was a good game to start out with i guess but it just got different for me. i dont have the real version of wow but i still think its better.

    never played WoW for long but in my opinion Runescape is just more fun.
    the graphics in runescape are now almost as good as wow .. lol I can play Wow on my comp but no Runescape HD =/.
    Runescape does never become boring, just if you’re bored you could do another skill, another quest, pk, another minigame or just hang out with your friends. Another thing in Runescape that makes it ALOT more fun, are clans.. Kill bosses with your friends and get high-worth drops, do clan wars with other clans and stuff..
    Also PK is a fun thing in runescape.. the thought that when you kill another person he gets pissed IRL, is great :D haha

    Another thing is that some noobs around here think Runescape is mainly played by 12-13 years old kids, which is NOT. The average age is over 16 and Jagex did prefer the game to 18-year-olds.
    I agree alot of 12/13 years old kids play rs, but they never become high and they play it for like a few months to a year, just because they like the knight-like things, I guess its just a life phase..

    Runescape becomes more and more fun once you play it longer, because when your skills raise, you can do ALOT more of things..
    not just more skills, more quests, more minigames, more area’s and more clothing and armor, but you can get more easily money, what allows you to get better armour, what makes you train better and more skilled in PvP.
    Whats the point of getting skills?
    its not just the ability to get more from everything but also the fact that how higher your skills are, the more RESPECT you get from players, thats why you can wear “skillcapes” in runescape to show off that you have a high ranked skill which is lvl 99 (max lvl) and spend alot of time on it. the harder the skill is, the more respect you get.

    another point: to make runescape “fun” I think you should be a member and I also think that f2p is a demo version of the real runescape (p2p)/members.

    conclusion: when this topic was made, Wow did own rs, now, more then 2 years later RS does totally own Wow on like everything except quests.

    i have seen both games and wow is too confusing, and you have to pay 15 dollars a month to play now!!! and all you noobs who say that more people play wow yer wrong, 11 million ppl play that game, and over 100 million accounts have been made in rs. but about a quarter of those probally are doubles and dont play anymore but still rs has more ppl playin. rs only costs 5 dollars a month and wow costs 15. and members is OPTIONAL on rs and you only get a 10 day free trial on wow, i personally choose rs, its much simpler game play and isnt confusing, it has way more things u can do than wow so i choose rs!!!!

    Posted May 28, 2009 at 5:03 pm

    “i have seen both games and wow is too confusing”
    Key word: “seen”. WoW is pretty damn simple if you read the tips, but once you’ve played RS anything seems complicated I suppose.

    “and you have to pay 15 dollars a month to play now!!!”
    OH NOES, 50 CENTS A DAY

    “and all you noobs who say that more people play wow yer wrong, 11 million ppl play that game, and over 100 million accounts have been made in rs”
    Actually, you’re the idiot here. You’re comparing every single account ever made on RS in 8 years to the current active, paying subscribers on WoW. Apples and oranges. Apples to apples, WoW has 11 million active players, RS has maybe 2-3 million at the most, and the majority don’t even pay. WoW wins in active accounts, RS wins in INactive accounts.

    “but about a quarter of those probally are doubles and dont play anymore but still rs has more ppl playin.”
    You’re so far off it’s funny. I’m 3 people according to Jagex. I don’t play anymore.

    “rs only costs 5 dollars a month and wow costs 15.”
    We covered this, and if price is your biggest argument, your desperation shows. A lot.

    “and members is OPTIONAL on rs and you only get a 10 day free trial on wow, i personally choose rs, its much simpler game play and isnt confusing, it has way more things u can do than wow so i choose rs!!!!”
    I’m so glad WoW requires you to pay, it weeds out the idiots like you and keeps them on Grindscape. You’ve never made it past 20. You have 0 room to judge.

    “all you guys that say wow is better because of graphics well now runescape has hd!!!”
    If I wanted graphics, I’d play Age of Conan. I want good gameplay, so I play WoW. You want…to mindlessly grind all day for mediocre rewards and cry about not having money, so you play Runescape. Simple as that.

    “so graphics are pretty much even”
    No, they’re still not even close to WoW on its lowest settings.

    “also runescape gets way more updates than wow, RS OWNS”
    RS has more useless updates, yes. WoW has larger, more impacting updates. Failure.

    “if u dont want noobs ruining yer game play, and want a challenge become a mem”
    What “challenge” is there? Getting the best gear is nothing but mindless grinding, getting skills and combat to 99 is nothing but mindless grinding, the only thing mildly difficult in the entire game might be a quest or 2, and with a guide, they’re cake too.

    “If you want to waste money and time play wow”
    That’d be Runescape.

    The 6 posters above me are so clueless and it’s clear none of them have made it past 20 in WoW, yet like to try to say it’s bad and RS is good. I’m the only one here that has legitimately played both, and I prefer WoW. See a pattern? WoW > RS.

  240. The reason
    Posted May 28, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    The only reason wow is better then runescape is because of the cost, if runescape was 15 dollars a month then it would have more money for graphics and other things like that, wow costs more, so they can afford all the updates they want. Runescape is a internet browser game, simple enough, yoiu have to pay for wow in advance and still pay every month. Not beeing bias I say wow has better graphics, even against rune hd, but the reason is the cost and that it isnt a browser game.

    So, now that we have that out of the way, it looks like you have absolutely nothing else to add. Come back when you’ve actually played the damn game before saying “OmG RS OWNZ WOW LAWL”.

    Ok, Played RuneScape for a few years from like 9 + , Yes, I was stupid enough to even pay for it. Your right about the games community, I left it at 13 to play WoW .. I prefer this game so much more – Im now 14 and have a level 80 and had a 96 in Runescape. Runescapes skills = Soooooo boring, Lets cut some trees, and we’ll use our axes about 10metres away from the tree, then we’ll make arrows and be level 10 in woodcutting. When I helped my friend in RuneScape, I had his dragon items to sell ( for him ) , There’s honestly scammers everywhere, The guy wouldnt let me check a website on how much it was, said he was logging, put a amount of money in , then lowered it on trade, accepting then he screams – HAHA OWNED OMFG LOLOLOLOLOLLOLOLOL THAT WAS W000tH mUch MRE!

  247. Hey You
    Posted June 1, 2009 at 9:55 am

    In order for RS to be able to compete with WoW, it’d need…
    -Free movement. Tiles don’t cut it.
    -Form of better travel. Sure, you can teleport and sometimes run, but the rest is just painfully slow walking.
    -More combat abilities. Come on, even RS players have to admit this one. The most you get after years of grinding is a spec bar, prayers, and food/potions (if you can even count those). Let’s face it, it’s pathetic.
    -Less time to skill, more inventory, and making skilling more of something that takes *gasp* skill instead of nothing but time. RS’s skilling system is almost as pathetic as it’s combat system.
    -More areas. Enough said.
    -Grouping system. What MMO DOESN’T HAVE A GROUPING SYSTEM? DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT “MMO” STANDS FOR?
    -Thing that are actually challenging. It’s pretty sad when only one boss in the entire game can’t be solo’d an on MMORPG. Even he is a cakewalk with a few people.

    If Jagex implemented those things, RS MIGHT compete with WoW. Maybe. Until then, as you can see, it is a massive joke in the MMO community. Anyone that cries about a game being too hard is told “Go back to Runescape.” for a reason.

If u want to spend less mony on an okey game the rs, if u want a better graphic game choose wow, but rs atleast let u try out and get a good start w0w u start at lvl 1 and have to go to lvl 80 while wasting ur mony when ur lvl 1- whenever starts to get fun

    “Pretty much all of u guys are wrong.”
    Nope.

    “It depends what kind of game you like to play. If u want a simpler game play rs, if not choose wow.”
    It really isn’t a matter of simplicity, WoW isn’t exactly complicated, RS is just made for retards and young children.

    “If u want to spend less mony on an okey game the rs, if u want a better graphic game choose wow”
    Translation: “If you can’t use Mommy’s credit card, play Runescape. If you want to play a quality game, play WoW.

    “but rs atleast let u try out and get a good start w0w u start at lvl 1 and have to go to lvl 80 while wasting ur mony when ur lvl 1- whenever starts to get fun”
    Cry more, good things cost money, you get what you pay for. WoW > RS, by far.

    “Ok, runescape has better pvp.”
    No.

    “in wow u cant kill to get there stuff u just walk up to some1 and fight, but pointless cuase u cant get there stuff”
    You get honor, which leads to gear, and achievements. Sorry, gear actually takes skill in WoW, and if everyone dropped gear every time they died, it’d take months to get some pieces back.

    “runescape has both duel arena and pvp also hass clan wars + every thing else so yea rs ftw in pvp”
    WoW has…
    -Duels anywhere
    -Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin, Alterac Valley, Eye of the Storm, Strand of the Ancients, and soon a new battleground.
    -Wintergrasp.
    -PVP servers just like RS’s.
    -Arenas, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5
    -The PVP actually requires movement and multiple actions at once, not clicking a spec bar, food, and potion then hoping for the best.
    Once again, clueless. WoW > RS.

But if you want to try a MMO and dont want to bust your wallet try runescape but if you have the money and time for WoW try WoW.

    I have played Runescape for ages, and I have played World of Warcraft too. At first Runescape seems like heaven to me, but after I reached level 70 things started getting boring. I explored everything, done most of the quests for my level, because sometimes there is not a singal quest to do which suits my level and skills. I turned my attention to making money to buy good stuff, but as I discovered better ways to make money, I had to travel further, teleport more, wait more, and by the time I had sold one bunch of items, I was too bored to move my character. Eventually I began teleporting all the time, and soon I ran out of runes. After that I had to use lots of my money for more runes. Prices for my main item to sell dropped tremendously, so I was slowly becoming bankrupt. I found nothing which I could sell for a good price, except all my dragon stuff, which I did not want to loose. Generally things got worse. To be continued…

    Posted June 19, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    WoW is IMO 2x more fun then Runescape, in WoW you can play and play for months and still not accomplish everything, while in Runescape things just get boring at the high levels. If you get to the highest point in WoW, just start a new character with new abilities. The graphics in WoW are great, Blizzard does a nice job with patches and expansions, and overall makes you have a nice experience. HOWEVER, after what seems to be a couple of weeks playing WoW turns out to be months, and WoW is the most addicting game I have ever played. That is why I say you should stay away from WoW, or at least set time limits. Just because Runescape isn’t as addictive, I would say Runescape is a better game. Not more fun then WoW, but better.

    Dude! Wow owns its like 10000000billions times better than runescape. Runescape is boring! I played both games and I quit runescape in 2 days and I am still playing WOW. You people are saying that because you cant afford to play WOW. If wow is free than everyone will play it instead of stupid boring runescape!

  273. Posted July 7, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    im just going to ask a question to all them gamers saying wows quests are boring, have you considered traveling to another area for different quests, those who make 50 will realise the quests bcome much more exciting and furthermore wows pvp system is much more superior to runescapes” hit for hit” system, wow has Battlegrounds, Arenas, Dueling, Freelance Pvping, and they all come with powerfull benefits called Honor, you cash it in for impressivly strong gear, runescape has nothing on World of Warcraft

    tony is a fine example of a childish RS player. Has never played WoW, can’t even give a legit reason as to why RS is better other than his mom not paying for WoW, and thinks playing WoW makes you a nerd while he’s probably sitting there cutting trees for hours of his kiddy life. Hypocrisy and ignorance at their finest.

    I’ve played both games for a while. I have a level 84 on RS, and a level 56 Draenei Shammy, and a Level 69 Human DK. These games are both amazingly awesome. I know, hell must have frozen over for me to say that, but big freakin deal. Everyone needs to be happy. As someone above me said, they are completely different games, with different goals and gameplay.
    Runescape Pros
    Fun when you are just reading stuff like this. You do not always have to be looking at the screen all the time.
    I’ve never been a really big fan of PvP ever. On any game. But RS PvP is unique. There’s not a whole lotta games out there with the Bounty Hunter system. Cut em’ some slack WoW players.
    Very large game for Java. For people who can’t afford all the WoW games and expansions this is a great game to spend your unused time. A bunch of different items.
    Above all Skilling is the main goal of RuneScape. Some people like to do this, some people don’t. If you do then, cool, go play some RuneScape. If you don’t? Cool, go play WoW, or any other Console game.
    WoW Pros.
    Extremely Diverse possibilities. You can almost live another life in this game. You can Sew, Skin, Mine, Smith, Work some leather, Ride Mounts, Change faces…etc…Lotta possibilities.
    Plenty of group work/Friendlier players.
    So many quests to do. Although a lot of the quests have the same objectives, they are still different every time. It never gets old!
    Absolutely Huge world.Four main continents as of now plus lots of underground, and caves and such.
    Raids are always fun, get a group and go kill a huge dragon or something, Or you can try your hand at Illidan Stormrage, or the Lich King. Either way you will be having fun.

    RuneScape is a more time consuming game. Takes lots longer to get to max level, but when you do I can imagine that it is well worth it. I can just imagine seeing that last 4 xp for the last damage you do to hit that max level. It would be a wonderful feeling. If you’ve got the time, and want a less involved game, this game is for you.

    World of Warcraft is a more involved game. Much more to explore. When you hit the level cap, there is still so much to do. You really don’t ever have to stop playing your toon. You can just respec, change your profs, or just keep on doing dailies.

    To me, both games are equal. They aren’t the same in any sense other than they are Massively multiplayer, with interactions to the other players. Just give them both a try if you are a true gamer. Both are VERY worth it if you are a gamer looking for a new game to play.

    If you want to befriend me on any of these games.
    RuneScape = xMojache, yes I know I got it from WoW.
    Or Runeman68264 either one. I play on both.
    World of Warcraft = I might quit for a while due to ex-girlfriend issues. But I play on the realm Shadowsong. My toon’s names are Korunai – Shammy, and Strythan – Death Knight.

    Good gaming guys. Can we just all get along? Grow up people, seriously, it’s just games. If either preference of player tells you that you have no life then just say, “What? I’m a gamer, I have tons of lives.” Have a good one.

    Posted July 12, 2009 at 2:30 pm

    Personaly I like WoW better, and I don’t mind that other people like RS better. I’ve played both games alot, level 90-something on Runescape and a level 63 on WoW?

    Yeah, WoW graphics are better.
    Although I’m admitting that its pretty expensive To buy the original game its $20 then another $20 activation fee. Another $20 for the first expansion. $30 for the next, and on top of that the 15 dollars a month. I’m just lucky that my friend doesn’t play it anymore and his dad doesn’t cancel his account haha.

    WoW is 15 dollars flat rate and
    Runescape isn’t just $5 however else you pay like by SMS its about $8. Or some other ways I forgot, I haven’t checked them out in a while.

    In Runescape the “clans” are almost useless unless you have like a website set up and everything organized etc. In WoW our guilds are great. You have a guild bank for everyone in it to use, way more organized, and just better.

    RS gets repetive to me too much, like I don’t want to spend my entire month lighting wood to get to 99 firemaking or even cut the wood or spend the money for it. WoW its easier to do your proffesions because you higher them when you need them and actually earn you stuff and help you.

    Rs has some ways of traveling like teleporting, fairy rings, etc. But WoW has more. Their mounts are great, its not that hard to get up to level 30 for your first one. And there are still teleporting, portals, boat, a Citie’s flying thing and more.

    In Rs in dungeons when your in a team you split the value of whatever the monster dropped. But it WoW you “roll” and whoever gets the highest number gets it. Before that theres Needy before greedy so needy gets first priority. There are also other ways like “round robin” “Master loot” etc.

    Theres more, but I have things to do lol.

  280. Lol
    Posted July 12, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Just a note, there\’s no 20 dollar activation fee.
    It\’s 20 for the game, 20 for the first xpac, 30 for the second, first month free, then 12-15 a month afterwards.

    Posted July 25, 2009 at 3:01 pm

    “and the grand exchange just makes it funner (from what i hear you can buy your money on WoW, can you say boring? i can -_-”

    Gold buying/selling is illegal and will get you banned just like in Runescape. WoW has an Auction House, basically a better version of the Grand Exchange, and has had it since release. That is some pretty terrible misinformation you have there, and I wouldn’t doubt for a second that you got that from fellow RS players that have also never played WoW, but just want a reason to hate it because they can’t afford to play it.

    Posted July 28, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    I started playing Runescape back in 2003. That was kinda the beginning of my MMORPG career. I’ve been on and off since that, being perm banned once in lvl 67, but I immediatly began another new account which has now reached lvl 94.

    Runescape offers a huge majority of possibilities and is as OUTSTANDING and EXCLUSIVE as it can get. There is no other game which even reminds of Runescape. It is a one of a kind.

    I quit Runescape in 2007 and then went over to World of Warcraft. I was older, smarter and more experienced with these kind of games. I had been playing Knight Online and many other F2P MMORPG games when not playing Runescape so I could easily make my way into WoW.

    I started off as a Shaman and in about half a year I had finally reached lvl 70. I quit due to school and my social life, but got back in at the release of Wrath of The Lich King. I then reached level 80.

    I personally believe that World of Warcraft offers more than Runescape if we look it at a long term perspective. You very rarely get boored by WoW in the long run, and you can begin playing again without problems and still not be boored.

    WoW is a better and more fun game for the more experienced and the hardcore gamers. Runescape isn’t that varied.

    ok, i played runescape for about 4 years i have my main account at lvl 109 a range tanker at lvl 80 and many many many other pures. i recently started playing wow for about 2 weeks now and i have a level 31 pally with around 500g and through out that time all i found my self doing was quests quests more quests and guesse what more guests i probs spelt it wrong but im a bad speller anyway. theres only 3 things you can realy do on wow and thats quests.dungeons and pvp there pvp is ok for the frist 10 times but its nothing compared to runescape they have loads more quests but there all the same and there duegons well realy you can only go in them once because they will get boring after you do it more than once. there armour may be better but runescape follwos more along the dark ages if im correct it could be somet els anyway i think they did i really good job on finding armour to go with the game and this is just some things why runescape is better i really cba saming more

  285. Posted July 28, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    ive played both games, rs for 3 years and wow for 1 and a half. I really liked wow better cuz of the lack of scam/spam and ppl goin like “pwned u noob!” and “i can pwn u in 1 hit”. WoW private servers hurt blizzard alot when nobody cares to play rs on someone elses proxy. I remember me hosting a LEGAL WoW server with permission and was fun, WoW is not expensive or unaffordable, and rs is free.

  286. Posted August 4, 2009 at 12:17 am

    You can’t judge a book by it’s cover. yes Runescape has horrible Graphics.quote from Hero The famous pker “runescape HD now with polygons!” yes, indeed but if you really think about it JaGex could in a sense aford enough to make A downloadable version of runescape with better graphics. i’ve played both and have to say there both pretty good…..BTW people Who think runescape quest’s are easy, try doing all of them without the use of a Guide. Not so easy now is it.WoW’s pvp is flawed but not totaly useless People get A kick out of killing one annother. Yes in wow you get to choose your “race” but in the end…..the person on the computer is what? that’s right a human. now then On to the age problem. yes runescape has A huge problem with idiot 9 year olds That is why I Usually have my chat turned off so I don’t listen to this idiocity. oh And BTW if you could hear people in runescape through a Headset….IMAGINE WORLD 1 OR 2 Grand Exchange…when 500+people are scattered all over the place if you could here what there saying I would get A headache and probally rip it the headset out and smash it into 12301293120 peices before lighting it on fire then blending it to make sure It’s no longer usable.I apreciate about WoW because theres usually not a group of 100+ people just standing there but it’s nothing to brag about. indeed chat filter is well…GAY, but they have loosened up the chat system in runescape. allowing you to use Unafending Cuss words….Back to the beggining What if you payed extra for A downloadable version of runescape With better graphics and seperated servers than the browser And enabled the ability to move freely and jump then it wouldn’t seem so bad They have enough money to do that, but in the end I Hardly doubt they would.In the End It’s not comparing apples to oranges…It’s like comparing apples to A rock. they are completely different and are respected for there own unique style of gameplay, And When it all boils down Theres nothing to compare.(by the way graphics do not make the game tons of games have proven that) i’m level 124 on runescape and level 80 on WoW as A side note Runescapes skills take FOREVER and indeed are repetitive to level. WoW less repitition but then again less skills.WoW 200 gold a day is alot.Runescape you can make 3m a day And no one would care. runescape has it’s own mini version of the stock market (I mean what other game has this)and alot of people like feeling rich.As and ending sentance Just try them both And stick to the one you like…I just happen to like them both =Þ Don’t judge a Game if you’ve never played it, it sometimes Shocks some people How complex a Game could be Beyond Apearances ON A SIDE NOTE:try not to log on to runescape play for 5 mins then judge it I HATE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS.And that also go’s for WoW.

  287. Dude who felt like comparing rs2/wow
    Posted August 11, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    I personally refer RS2 but maybe cuz i just played it first/longer. i tried WOW and it was pretty fun i got to lvl 16 with the trial…idk if that good or bad, it wasnt too hard but i know that lvling is harder cuz there a re less lvls…i think. anyways i think there both good games and WOW is probably better in more things than RS2 but i prefer rs2 cuz of the money and i’ve grown used to the horribly crappy graphics. also the quests and minigames are fun. and you can be more than one thing like an archer warrior and mage, so i prefer rs2.

  288. Dude who felt like comparing rs2/wow
    Posted August 11, 2009 at 10:59 pm

    um i cant edit my post so lemme just add one more thing, this is too “y even compare” i’d say to get the feel for both games you’d have to play runescape for a couple days approx. 1-2 hours a day too REALLY see what its like. and WOW for a week for 1.5-2.5 hours a day. idk but WOW seems more complex becausee it has more work put into graphics and design cuz more money and stuff.. not bashing rs2, i like rs2 better, just saying WOW takes more getting used to

  289. Unbiased Analyses
    Posted August 16, 2009 at 1:16 am

    I’m bored so I think I’ll post here.

    I’ll be listing points of the games which I can pul out of my brain at random.

    - – -World of Warcraft- – -

    -Thousands of Quest-
    True many are just kill x amount of enemies and bring me back their mutilated toes for gold, but these sort of quests usually lead to large chains with a storyline of some sort.

    -Thousands of Gear combinations-
    When choosing a party in WoW, several things must be taken into account, their class, their skill in playing, but most importantly their gear. In WoW, each class has 2-3 main attributes they must focus on, may it be int/stam str/stam or int/spr, as well as crit chance, dodge rating , attack/spell power and parry rating. The usefulness of a character is based very largely on the power of their gear but instead of there being only 1 set of gear that a class can wear and use to be effective, many, many combintaions of gear can be used (atleast until you reach level 80 and everyone is just wearing the tiered stuff).

    – - -Runescape- – -

    -150 Quests (32 F2P)-
    Each involving a decent, if not sometimes childish story, these are quite often fun and an average quest can take up to an hour or two, but are also rather annoying as often they boil down to bring me x amount of this thing anyway. Still I enjoyed most of them.

    -Limited Gear sets-
    Runescape has only a few gear sets, these include bronze, iron, steel, black( what kind of metal is that anyway?), mithril, Rune and Dragon. In addition to these sets there is also the 6 archer sets, the 3 mage sets, the barrows sets and the god accessories. This gear can be obtained by first grinding to the defence/attack/range/magic level required and then spending large amounts of your grinded coin on them.

    I’m not even going to get started on the graphics/price/game engine thing, all I can really say is, for 50 cents a day WoW is probably worth a look at.

    more to come next time I’m bored.

    WoW and Rs are two veeery diffrent games. WoW focuses more on battle and rs on skills. Its weird that people keep complaining about how slow it is to get high level skills on rs…thats the point of the game. Some people said that they dont want to spend alot of time training strenght just to hit 2-4 damage more. Yes thats true, but as it comes to the other skills like mining or smithing its very important that skill is slow and/or expenssive to train:
    If you could get the best possible mining level of 99 like in 1 week, you would mine best possible ore, as fast as you could ever mine it and smith it into best possible armour/weapon. But as you will be one of 1,000,000 who would mine that precious ore and smith the armour- it would be completely worthless and that would ruin the games economy. Thats why in rs its important that everyone has own “role” in the game community. Some pick flax, others spin it into bowstrings, others fletch the bows, more experienced players do more advanced stuff… The whole idea of rs is not just running around and killing stuff. Its more of a simulator than a game.

    And tbh putting the graphics ahead of game content IS a sing of imaturity as a gamer. Simply because younger players never played the games with very crude graphics like they used to be on Dos games or the first Nintendo consoles. Matter of generation.

    You have it backwards, O K E A H.

    Yes, it’s extremely slow, boring, and monotonous to get skills up in RS. They’re not fun, yet they’re, as you said, a large portion of the game. Sure, you could say it runs the economy and such, but who in the world in their right mind would spend all of that time leveling up skills…to get money…to level skills up faster?

    That’s what I like about WoW’s professions; I’m not saying they’re perfect by any means, but by limiting them to 2 per person, you have everyone performing a role and keeping the economy flowing, instead of everyone generally being self-sufficient. Yes, they don’t take much time out of your life, but if you’re really desperate enough to waste time on a game even though it’s genuinely boring and NOT fun, then by all means, play Runescape. It’s got years worth of boredom and almost no rewards for doing so, the content is total trash from 3-138, and the community is quite terrible, to say the least. Graphics are the least of Jagex’s worries. WoW dominates it so hard it isn’t even funny.

    In rs training is slow and boring, maybe its just me, but i enjoy the feeling of acomplishment as i reach some level i wanted knowing that theres still some room for improve. I personally dont even consider rs as a game..neither do i consider it as a job. Im a slack off type of rs player, mostly i just chat with friends and train the skills while just hanging. I dont want to start that “which is better” thing again, but i just want to remind that WoW is a mulitimillion project, which was ment to be a hit success, it has something for everyone. But if WoW would have everything rs doesnt, why would anyone still play rs? I like rs the way it is ( for exeption the trade limit updates ) and i just dont see why people having problem with it?

    Posted August 20, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    And btw you got me wrong about the skilling … there are other reasons to train skills than just “be able to train skill some more”. The skills benefit from each other like fishing+cooking, woodcutting+fletching etc. in long run you will aslo gather good wealth which can be used in anyway you want to. Skills are also needed for quests/ to acess certain minigames. I got your point, but i hope you will understand mine too.

    PEOPLE WOW is much better because when you get to level 10 you can go to PVP with something called BG but you cant go to pvp at level 10 in RS because people are there who are like level 100 so you’ll get pwned but in wow its much better because you have a team of 10 and they have a team of 10 and its awesome also like first of all you have classes in wow another thing is your have factions which are HORDE / ALLIANCE the best thing is the races.

    people i know since i already have a level 80 and it only took about 4 months to get to level 80 but when your level 80 ITS AWESOME try to get a little higher like level 20 or 19 and then you’ll get used to it and find out the true world of warcraft also one other thing. WHY DO THEY CALL IT WOW well thats because when you play it you say WOW.

    I”n rs training is slow and boring, maybe its just me, but i enjoy the feeling of acomplishment as i reach some level i wanted knowing that theres still some room for improve.”

    No, that’s a simple sign of addiction. It’s doing something you don’t even like over and over for weeks to months of your life for a little good feeling. You spent insane amounts of time doing something YOU DON’T EVEN LIKE just to get that false sense of accomplishment. You see, for you to actually accomplish something, there has to be a challenge to it. In RS, the only challenge is not quitting from boredom.

    “I personally dont even consider rs as a game..neither do i consider it as a job. Im a slack off type of rs player, mostly i just chat with friends and train the skills while just hanging.”

    So you pay for an AIM service, alright.

    “I dont want to start that “which is better” thing again, but i just want to remind that WoW is a mulitimillion project, which was ment to be a hit success, it has something for everyone. But if WoW would have everything rs doesnt, why would anyone still play rs?”

    Few reasons.
    -They’ve never heard of WoW.
    -They think their computers are too bad for it.
    -They’re too cheap.
    -They hear from other RS fanboys who have never played it that it’s bad.
    -They think WoW is too complicated.

    Most cases are little kids who can’t get their moms to buy it. If WoW was free, RS would be wiped off the map. However, I don’t like the whole “hypothetical situation” thing.

    “I like rs the way it is ( for exeption the trade limit updates ) and i just dont see why people having problem with it?”

    Because even as you admitted, it’s slow and boring. It’s a VIDEO GAME. VIDEO GAMES ARE NOT MEANT TO BE BORING. RUNESCAPE IS BORING. RUNESCAPE IS TERRIBLE.

    Maybe if you actually played both, you’d see it for yourself. However, it looks like Jagex reigned you in just how they like to; giving little kids a false sense of accomplishment.

    All of the posts above me show RS players’ true colors. Don’t have actual reasons as to why RS is better (even after one guy posts what, 10 comments?), and thinks repeating “WoW is for no lifers” will make it true, and pretending RS has people that are above 15 years is just hilarious.

    WoW dominates RS in every area of gaming. You name it.

    -WoW-

    -Huge amount of gear
    -gear and skill based combat
    -A LOT of quests
    -huge areas
    -Graphics, though little dull against todays general standard, are better
    - A bit less face customization
    - A majority of the people are mature as a opposed to ten year olds
    -Grouping. guilds and raids
    - more skill based focus as opposed to grinding eg, enchanters enchanting for other people
    - instances
    - huge expansions

    “yea yea keeep making game war :D i don’t care what ur saying.”

    “i don’t want to listen to a stupidly wow fanboy who’s making game war.”
    Don’t attempt to call people stupid when you have the grammar and logic of a 1st grader.

    ” i’ii be enjoying life, you’ll be enjoying sheer ignorance and cutting pixel trees for a useless cape.
    yah right… enjoying life on wow u mean ahm? ;) and yes i’m cutting pixel trees in real life”
    Once again, a pathetic “no lifer” comment again. If you look stupid the first time with that, what makes you think you’ll look intelligent/witty the next?

    Oh, I never said you were cutting pixel trees in real life, but you do cut pixel trees for hours of your life on Runescape and pretend it’s fun. That is, unless you’re saying you have level 1 woodcutting.

    “hehe, now i see that ur broke all ur fighers for playing wow he??? hehe :p”
    Another Runescape fanboy comment. I’m not even shocked by how stupid they are anymore.

    “i want to see that ur gonna give up and saying: i have no life i’m a robot who’s playing wow and never played runescape. :p”
    I’d say that if it was opposite day. I have a life, unless you’re telling me having a car, job, friends, education, and being a top competitor in a hobby (no, not WoW or video games) means I have no life. Let me guess, other RS fanboys have told you that right when you play WOW you instantly have no life, right? But as long as you just waste your time grinding on Runescape instead, you’re a winner, right?

    I have a life.
    I do not play WoW excessively.
    I have played Runescape, but regret it.

    Now, go ahead and do your whole routine where you make some terrible comment/joke about breaking fingers, no life, etc. and pretend you’re actually being witty.

    I could dig up plenty of stories from Runescape addicts, and the reports of death from people playing Runescape, but it’s pointless in the end; all games have people who have played too much, that doesn’t make the game bad. However, one thing WoW doesn’t have is people like you. You have yet to give one actual fact, and all you can do is just repeat “wow is for nerds” while you cut pixel trees for hours to days and pretend it’s fun, say RS will become better than WoW (except it won’t), and try to throw childish “your mom” insults when you’re backed into a corner, ALL while YOU HAVE NEVER PLAYED WoW.

    Posted September 23, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    Okay, I have played both Runescape and World of Warcraft. On
    Runescape I have a level 62 character (Killeredge33), on World of Warcraft I have a level 80 Death Knight named Monstermash ( the realm is Alterac Mountains for you people who want to look him up in the armory). I have played Runescape for two years, and WoW for two years, but I quit Runescape. I did very much enjoy Runescape, but that was when I was younger, and it got extremely repetitive. I play WoW now, and honestly it is much better then Runescape.

    I’m not saying that Runescape is terrible, i’m saying that it’s for a younger age group then WoW. Runescape is more simple, WoW is more complex.

    Okay now for the review of both games…

    Graphics:
    WoW- World of Warcraft has much better graphics then Runescape on it’s lowest settings, but it does significantly require a better computer for the best settings. WoW has “good” camera angles you can actually adjust to make it good. WoW has much better 3D, and is just beautiful. WoW has great details, such as fish in the water and little birds sometimes flying around, flowers, fire, etc. It just looks spectacular when on max settings, and will blow your mind.

    Runescape – For a browser game, Runescapes graphics are pretty good, but you can’t really compare it to WoWs graphics because it’s a browser game. It looks more cartoonish, and less detailed. Armor is just a different shade of color (bronze, iron, rune etc). It does look okay though, it has preety cool looking landscapes, and is good on most computers.

    Cost- Runescape is I think is 7 dollars a month, but has free worlds, WoW is 15 dollars a month. The extra 8 dollars are worth the 5X + the amount of content there is in WoW. But it does get kind of expensive. 20, 30, and 40 dollar games I think. But honestly, anyone can afford 15 dollars a month, 50 cents a day is nothing!

    Sound- WoWs sound is epic, has real instruments, and is beautiful to listen to. Runescapes sound is annoying click clacks and electronic noises. WoW dominates Runescapes sound.

    PvP- Runescapes PvP was great at first, but then Jadgex ruined it completely. It’s the opposite for WoW. Runescape now has clan wars, and bounty hunter and other stuff I haven’t really tried out yet, and WoWs PvP realms has entirely faction vs faction PvP, 1v1, 2v2, 3v3,5v5, 10v10, 15v15, and even 40v40. IMPORTANT —> you also don’t just click something and wait a minute until the other player eats some food back to a full heal, repeat. WoW has SKILLS, which makes every class unique from each other. WoW also now dominates Runescapes PvP.

    PvE- WoW has 5,10, and 25 man raids/dungeons,
    Runescape is just soloing everything. There are no special rewards like WoWs, and isn’t nearly as much monsters and things like that. In runescape, you click a monster wait, they die, repeat X5000 times to gain a level. In WoW, you have thousands of quests you can do, and other things to make it fun and awesome to level.

    Characters- In Runescape you have 1 character per account, in WoW you have a max of 50 characters on probably 100 realms (which are worlds in Runescape but you permanently stay there).

    Community- Everyone who played Runescape knows that most people are under 13, and are immature, saying stuff like LF GF, DEF PURE!, NUB, PWND! WoW is nothing like that. Almost all players are very mature, and no one trys to scam you. Runescapes players are annoying, but WoWs are mature and good.

    Other Content- WoW has a mail system, auction house (eBay), calendar system, guilds (clans in Rs) ( and the guilds have ranks, and there own personal bank for items), mounts, and much more.

    Runescape has a less advanced, Grand Exchange, and pretty much nothing else.

    Overall:
    WoW – 9/10
    Runescape – 7/10 (when I played it 2 years ago, but including the graphic update and other updates).

    For people who want to repeat things 10 trillion times, pay less, have less content, and don’t have a good pc, pick Runescape.

    For people who want a more complex, fun, beautiful, epic, but more expensive and requires a semi-good to great pc, pick WoW.

    WOW RULES! RUNESCAPE SUCKS! (for my opinion).
    But please, play what you want to play…

    i’ve played both of this games. lvl 121 in runescape and lvl 68 night elf in WoW. On WoW, the graphics are very beautifull and the game is really cool, there are sooo many quests to do, and has much more classes than rs. RS may have bad graphics but the game is sooo excited and yes, i’m enjoying cutting trees, fletch but sometimes it’s getting bored if u need to wait for next lvl. And i am glad if there are weekly updates in rs and who knows later runescape is gonna be better than WoW… My opinion is: I LIKE RUNESCAPE MORE THAN WORLD OF WARCRAFT. and the others gamewarmakers like Lol, and the other one who’s always changing names here saying that wow are no lifers etc really need to think: “what am i doing? it’s just a game”
    for god sake everyone who’s saying:” that is much better than that oo and that game sucks, wow no lifers” please STOP over it just shut up all and play ur own game that u like it plzzz!

    Okay, from what ive learned from playing Wow that it is way to time consuming (I would know i have a level 80 warrior) but the fact is Runescape you can always come back and fourth to the computer and accomplish something as in for WoW, You have to make EVERY SINGLE raid if your in a good guild, or you wont get better. As in for Runescape making money is a serious deal. The more money you get the more fun the game is. As in for WoW why make money i mean who cares you buy your epic flyer and then money is pointless unless you want to enchant your gear and what not. So i mean all the “World of Warcraft” vs “Runescape” is all in your opinion you have to play the right game that suits your time.

    I have played rs and WoW, but i am far by more impressed by runescape, first of all it is much cheaper. you do not have to pay to download the game and is it £10 less than WoW. Secondly, the graphics. Yes, maybe runescape doesent have very good graphics, but if you go into hd you can easily compare it with WoW. And last but not least,the players, weapons and armour. Runescape offers over 100 weps, of which 40 are high lvl weps and have cool names. Also, you can actually be 4 different types of ppl on runescape, melleer, ranger, mage or skiller. All you need to do is concentrate on one lvl at a time. And finally, the armour. You can get ove 80 types of armour, of which 30 are high lvled. P.S WoW is gay

    Nice, well balanced essay.

    I play Runescape because, well, my parents wouldn’t allow me to play the “Teen-rated” WoW and Runescape has like zero (and believe me, this is close to zero) violence, absolutely no sex, extremely mild suggestive themes, versus WoW.

    I kind of wish I played WoW though although I’d regret the price forever (but don’t worry Runescape is raising theirs!!). Overall, once you play Runescape for 100 hours, it can become VERY boring. This is why I secretly wish I were with WoW where I’ve heard there is much less boredom.

    “I have played rs and WoW”
    I highly doubt that.

    “And last but not least,the players, weapons and armour. Runescape offers over 100 weps, of which 40 are high lvl weps and have cool names.”
    That’s cool, WoW has 1,000s of different weapons not including enchants, and nearly 3x more pieces of armor than Runescape has ITEMS, once again, not including gems or enchants. The only reason I can imagine you mentioning this is because *gasp* you’ve never played WoW.

    “Also, you can actually be 4 different types of ppl on runescape, melleer, ranger, mage or skiller. All you need to do is concentrate on one lvl at a time.”
    Oh boy, 4 types, watch out, too bad you can be 10 different classes with 3 talent trees each in WoW, with actual variety instead of everyone being identical on RS. Plus, you shouldn’t equate leveling in RS to leveling in WoW; RS’s skills are absolutely terrible, horribly boring grinds that only preteens and young teenagers seem to be able to tolerate. It’s not fun. It never gets fun. That’s the foundation of Runescape, being slow and boring.

    “And finally, the armour. You can get ove 80 types of armour, of which 30 are high lvled. P.S WoW is gay”
    I present to you evidence that this child hasn’t played WoW. Nobody with common sense would brag about “80 types of armor” when WoW has over 10,000 different pieces. This child is a perfect example of a Runescape player; bragging about things he thinks people will think are good, when it reality everyone knows they’re a joke.

    WoW is better. Get over it kids.

    It’s a completely different game, so some people don’t like the direct transition, while others like me loved it. It doesn’t cater to children, and sometimes you actually have to think, so if you’re willing to get by that, give it a shot. Just try the Free Trial and see what you think. It’s definitely a game where new things constantly come at you as you get up in the ranks, while that isn’t the case for RS.

    I have played Runescape for 4 years, back when it was still Runescape Classic, and the minute I played old “Vanilla” WoW, I could not go back to Runescape, as overall the experience was more difficult, but im my mind better.
    Also, to respond to Diesel above, about armor and weapons, the extent of weapons and armor is less than 1% or 1% of available armory in WoW. Overall, WoW is better in my opinion, but Runescape has something about it that makes it so popular.

In WoW the PvP is MUCH better, graphics are 5x better, so much more to do in WoW, and also, people who are saying RS is better, have you ever played WoW at level cap? If not, then get WoW, get to 80, and re-think your opinion. Lawls :3.

    alright if i was rich id probably try wow. but ive done the free trial and even that slows my computer so thats too much also there. plus in my opinion with runescapes new graphics and full screen mode they may not be as good as wows but there sure are getting pretty dam close so runescape continues to get better and stays only 5 dollars. also wow does have updates very often only the origional game and 2 expansions. just saying

WRONG. 15 euro per month is an ADVANTAGE!!! See, people can’t always afford 15 euro per month for WoW and that means: it’s healthy for them cause they won’t play WoW always like they in RS do. in RS: 5 euros per month is an DISADVANTAGE. Cause people CAN afford 5 euros per month and that means: They are NERDS that playing RS always and that’s not healthy for them!!! UNDERSTOOD RS NERDS??? Wel eat my MOHAWK GRENADES!! RARARAGHHH!!

    I’ve played both to a high level, 3 main accounts on Runescape. 2 Main accounts on WoW.

    -WoW
    *Pros
    Better graphics
    More Specific Classes
    More players
    *Cons
    Takes up a lot of space on computer
    Hard(er) to get the hang of
    More expensive to buy and for membership

    -Runescape
    *Pros
    Free to play and Cheaper membership
    Runs on Java, less resources from computer
    *Cons
    Bad graphics
    Personally, to me it gets boring to level up
    Many players liked the drop and trade, and old Pking etc.
    Less dungeons
    Community run by children

    Whoever said there’s a “lot” of weapons and armor in RS there is way more, and I mean a whole lot more of choices for WoW.

    I’ve played WoW for about 4 years but I can honestly say that WoW is a distance better. Runescape has just been too sugarcoated for kids. “Oh, lets remove the old PKing so then little kids don’t cry when Mature, skilled players own them”
    Ugh.

    World of Warcraft is superior to Runescape.

    runescape has many features and events and is more challanging and exiting on the other side WOW is less exiting and runescape has many more quests.

    basically Wow is for ppl with low attention spans that don’t like tedious skill leveling in runescape. it’s somewhat about the graphics but to pay to play?graphics r for aesthetic appeal.not worth it. you could use that money for something useful. rs non members is free, and may not be that great, but at least you dont get a big whopping bill at the end of the year.runescape has cheaper benefits than wow (5$ compared to 15$).plus rs doesnt put stress on ur computer. u guys say graphics but no one can beat classics like super mario. dont like getting banned? too bad, just gotta bear the pain and be careful. its not everyone’s perfect little world. im lvl 102 and i tread carefully so i can keep my account. rs allows players to skill in any way they want. both may be repetitive, but programmers arent super computers. did i mention the demonic tantrums that people have while playing world of warcraft?

    the object of this entry is to defend, the players of rs, not the game itself. one of you said runescape is boring and that kids have the patience to play the grinding hours. that’s contrary to common sense, kids have small attention spans when adults have patience. just because alot of rs has immature kids doesn’t mean the adult population is too, that’s stereotyping. that poor comment was just rude. i used my money for college, you used it to play wow, is that poor? 2-4 year players are no lifers?i played ON AND OFF for 2-4 years so yes i have a life. no matter what mmorpg that you go, you will find both adolescents and adults. “take a walk in my shoes before you judge me.” statistics, quantity and graphics is all i hear, that’s NEW SCHOOL IGNORANT thinking. what happened to the complexity and simple fun of games? both games are good in their own ways, and they’re not for everyone.

WoW has a HUGE landscape, and mounts, gryphons and flying mounts to get around faster,3. WoW is more about teaming them RS (thats a FACT!)4.graphics (we gotta put that in consideration) 5. quests aren’t grind, they are very numerous and fun,6.for all of these pleasures you will have to pay, RS has less pleasures and therefor asks for less money,7.WoW is pure awesomeness, so is RS but yet again WoW will win… please if you haven’t played WoW for more then 10 days don’t comment on me. i gave pure facts and i never used anything that was just my opinion, if you have anything to say please don’t comment here(so we don’t flood this with arguments) E-mail me at: fadi_nemri@hotmail.com

  377. Some sense to this debate...
    Posted January 8, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Alright, i’m writing from my iPod Touch here so sorry for any typos.

    Okay, here’s the deal with these games.

    They’re different.

    People need to remember that this argument is only a matter of opinion, and, as such will never be decided (untill maybe one company shuts down, goes bust, or whatever). The comparison between WoW and RS is there to be made, but well and truly makes little difference to which game most think is better, which game more people play, which has better graphics, etc. They’re both different games to be played by people (different people? Maybe.) I have played both games on and off (for long enough to make fair judgement, don’t get me wrong.) in between my playing of other games (CSS, BF2, etc.) and in all honesty it makes little difference which game is best. At the moment I am playing Runescape with a great community of other players/friends. Some of my friends have decided to play WoW again and I think that I may go back to playing wow again, atleast, for a while because the reality is that they’re to be played for enjoyment and I best get enjoyment out of playing with my friends. So I play whichever has the best part of my own personal community playing it, currently runescape. Both are crappy enjoyable games which take up lots of your spare time which could be spent hunting deer, or playing extreme mountain canoeing, if that’s what you like. And can’t really be sensibly compared by anyone anywhere without biased opinions, flaming, verbal assault and eventual murder and rape. So let’s go back to getting 99 cooking untrimmed and 19 hunter twink all maxed out. And leave this argument alone, for me, I’ll go back to getting 99 firemaking, then who knows, maybe I’ll play wow? I think enhancent/elemental shamans are pretty good, might try maxing a troll on magtheriadon with my friend. And for the duration I’ll be shooting Chinese people and terrorists all the way, bottom line,

    Does it really matter?

    Well it was a pointless rant that probably makes little sense to anyone but me, but hey, that doesn’t matter either, does it?

    OMG MOST of you are stupid, ok runescape has FULL SCREEN MODE, the graphics in Runescape are MUCH BETTER than WoW. (try Print screen on both games and put in microsoft word, save it then see how much DATA it take sup per picture. Runescape has more data graphics than WoW. only reason you think WoW has betetr graphics is because you can see lanscapes futher away than Runescape (runescape has close fog). just because WoW can see further away than runescape doesnt mean it has better graphics. Runescape is a much more realistic, educational game than WoW, i learnt a lot about runescape, (themes, myths, stories, history)… Honestly i played WoW for 5 weeks, and it sucked…. everyone is too IMBA, there is no equality, WOW also has cheats, runescape doesnt (both games can do AUTO BOT, but in runescape you get banded for it) i played for 6 years of runescape free to play (non members), and even though there are like only 8-15 quests, it is still good, you find new ways of earning money and stuff but in WoW for some reason, everyone has 1000 million times more money than people who have played wow for a whole month, for me that is just too IMBA!
    I like runescape better because it has the Grand Exchange, there are other ways to Merch and WoW only has “General stores” (LOL).
    There is also just too many different kinda of items in wow, i hate that, you never know what are the BEST items (except if you are a geek and search WoW armour and weapons ect. on the internet or a fan site….. noobs)

    and by the way, not all Runescape players are IMMATURE (?), im not immature, im a grown up and i played WoW, everyone i met there are stubborn, selfish people, they never help you with quests, (runescape people do, they volunteer). when i played WoW, i met 50 ten year old out of 150 people… the rest were 13-16……?????????

    WoW is also a bit more boring, the map is so big you dont meet people so much, hardly see any, after a while it feels like your lonley and you think you might as well buy a game from a shop and play a carrer game on that instead. but in runescape there are people EVERYWHERE, when you start the game, you will probably see like 100 people in one area.

    There are maybe more WoW players in the world but that is because most of them download the game illegally and play,
    (in indonesia, 90% of every person has played WoW before, thats because there are local gaming places [warnet] everywhere, and there you can only play WoW…

    In runescape there are SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS OF PvPing, (bounty hunter, clan wars, single arena in clan wars, pvp free for all, castle wars ect.)

    thanks, but in WoW you can finish the game in 1 month…. and be the best guy, but in runescape it takes many years of hard work to level up to a maximum of level 99 in EVERY skill

    Runescape players, add me conart5

    Wow, the guy above is a complete and utter jackass, who has clearly not thought researched or backed up with validity any of those opinions, dude, on average the wow community (IFC with variation) is older than the RuneScape community. Personally, I play runescape, but wow does infact have much better graphics an also to play at full graphic capability requires a much more reasonable system. If you didn’t like the lack of 100s of people on one spot, then you could have changed realms to a more full realm I.e Magtheriadon Horde. If you even got past level 19 then you’ll have been able to play atleast two of the many pvp games (including the choice of pvp worlds, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5 and of course, all the battlegrounds, WSG, AV, Etc.)

    That said, I am a RuneScaper, I prefer it.

    The biased opinions of people who play one and not the other are really annoying, I do not even play wow anymore, and yet it is a good game, people are just too stubborn to admit that any other game than theirs is any good. It bugs me, the lack of informed opinion, “wows crap because I prefer rs, therefore wow has crap: pvp, graphics, gameplay” is not an informed opinion, it is a moronic comment, I just would like to see sense in this argument, is all.

Graphics, pretty much useless. not everyone cares of em, but for the record, wow’s graphics are better. Customer service, u cant get banned by bots on wow, you can also argue in your defense to getting a ban. i dont see what you’re all complaining about, if RS is better then why does wow have more members? why can you only argue that the bad thing about wow is the price? if the money is too much then go make a trial account and try wow for yourself, if its to hard for you and you are under 15, thats obviously why. ive been playing wow since i was 10 ive never ahd problems. it shouldnt be hard to get used to but unlike runescape, if your gonna go running around like a little brat calling ppl noobs, then you should expect to be hit back.

    I love how most of WoW’s comments make sence,and are usually longer then a sentence.
    While most of runescapes comments are just newbish and unconstructive like “WOW IS JUST PATHETIC,rs owns”.

    I myself,have played both WoW and RS,runescape for around 5 years,and wow for 3.
    All these posts i’ve ‘been seeing about the PVP in WoW being boring compared to runescape are liez imo.
    On wow,the pvp in battlegrounds never stops,you die,you revive at the graveyard,walk for a few seconds,and then b00m,back to owning some newbz. While on runescape, the mini-games are usually always full with high levels=no fun for noobs. WoW has battleground leveling brackets,10-19,20-29,30-39,etc. Which makes it alot more funner for noobs who just want to play a quick pvp mini-game.
    Not to mention, WoW pvp requires far more skill,you have keybindings,and far more spells to use,while in runescape you’ll usually only be using barrage/venge/spam food whene you’re low/claw spec=k0. In WoW you need to plan all your cooldowns, and use pvp trinkets and such.

    Three years ago I played RS, about half a year as a freebie then I got P2P for about a year. I didn’t like it, but didn’t have time, money, or a fast enough computer to play WoW.

    The games were designed for different people. RS is free, low graphics, browser based, and involves a lot of really boring grinding. WoW does require a bit of grounding, but there are so many possibilities and things you can choose to do. 10 races, 10 classes (each with 3 different specs), PvE questing, PvP battlegrounds, arenas, tournaments, 5 man content, 10 man content, 20 man content, 25 man content, 40 man content, many proffessions, reputations, many more holiday events than RS, and many more.

    RS really has sort of a stock PvP. I’ll admit I got a lot of entertainment of figuring out the puzzling quests I was faced with, but that’s really the only enjoyable aspect of the game itself. The skills? They suck. They require huge amounts of time and grinding, and took forever to level and earn money.

    And the communities? They are terrible. In RS, you ask for directions and get called a noob by 10 different people. On WoW, I asked my new guild how much money they had (trying to save up for Cold Weather Flying), and the GM just gave me 1k right there, no questions asked. In RS you have people trying to scam you at every turn, and the WoW community is well organized, helpful and funny. Hell, freebies can’t even USE the RS forums. Community wise, the WoW community tromps the RS community in every way.

    Idiots. Runescape pvp isn’t better. Yeah… you can form clans. Ooo. Too bad in world of warcraft you can form small groups, just for a quick thingy, AND you can form major guilds if you are doing major, big things. Get with it. You don’t have to pay 15 bucks a month, just buy 30$ gamecards every two months. Or buy time on the Blizzard Store. Most of WoW is doing quests, which is not boring, it gets you expereince, new items, the works. If you really want a good game you should play WoW, more options, more spells, it’s great.

    Really who gives a hoot which is better? if you like one game better than the other then play it. stop complaining over a meaningless subject! RS does have a terrible community yes, but with a F2p system, you’re gonna get alot of scrubs. I play RS and mainly keep to myself completing quests that seem entertaining. Some people will help you but most will call you noob/nub. Ignore it and go on. Don’t take everything so personal. If you like wow better then thats fine. I will state though that just because a game has more members does not mean its a better game. It really means that Wow has exceedingly done well at marketing with commercials,etc. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tv commercial for runescape. But let’s be honest people, does it really matter if you think one or the other is better? not really. It’s like trying to argue if 360 is better than ps3 or wii is better than 360. It really doesn’t matter. CASE CLOSED O and i wouldnt call playing wow as “having skill” lmao. That’s like becoming a god at guitar hero and saying you are a musician. I’d say do something real with your free time people and stop wasting your time with games that doesnt make a flip in the end.

    Personally I think RuneScape is better, I’ve been playing for the for 3 years though, I have never played WoW but I’m trying it out soon with a friend who is good at it.
    Everybody has their own opinion, and to be honest my vote goes to RS.
    Maybe if I get into WoW, then I’ll change my mind.

    That is 110% True. Well said.

    ok now i am not here to offend runescape but u morons asked for it. to begin wows graphics are way better.Wow has hundreds and hundreds of more armor pieces then RS. Tell me how RS pvp can be more fun when its a bunch of people poking each other or tapping each other with \”weapons\”. Each class on wow is unique in its own way and sure u can have all in one on runescape but nothing is nearly as detailed. The so called \”action\” in runescape is nothing but poking as i said before in wow it is realistic fighting. Wow has different races to be and way more detailed character creation. Wow has the great horde VS alliance theme which is awesome because u can raid cities and and do PVP. Not all characters look the same in wow as they do in runescape. Wow has a bigger world. The game is not only questing it is quests,pvp,dungeons,raids, and grinding for xp. now i am 13 and i can honestly say age does not matter what matters is maturity and the maturity on runecape is so terrible that i sometimes wonder if 5 year olds are really playing. my vote goes to WOW and anyone is free to leave comments i will answer you back because i know runescape cannot beat wow. runecape is for people who cant afford wow or are not old enough to really understand everything about wow. i mean this in a nice way to not everyone has a lot of money which is fine but honestly theres no beating wow so many games have tried and failed wow is the best online game probably wont ever be beaten. so i pick wow much more ty for reading.

    I like WoW and RS, but I like WoW waaaaaay better. I could name a million things that RS doesnt have but WoW does. WoW has better PVP then RS. WoW has more races, more classes availble, Hell RS dont even have guns! WoW have mounts and spells like mind control. WoW Dungeons are waaaaaaay better than RS. WoW involves more teamwork. WoW have more holiday events. WoW have more skills. WoW doesnt have gay rules like no offensive language. WoW has better graphics than RS. WoW is ten times more bigger than RS. WoW have challenging bosses. The only thing that sucks about WoW is that is two time more expensive than RS membership. But it is still a good game

    Ok… I have played runescape and I have played wow…

    I still play wow and think runescape is POINTLESS. It is no doubt the cheap option. If you cannot afford to spend £10 a month then Runescape is the one for you. If you can, I urge you to aboid runescape.

    1. You do not ‘need’ groups in wow, You merely need to take the time to level to a point where you can do the quest solo, Or pick a character that can hammer any quest with ease E.g. Pally or warrior.

    2. The PvP System in wow may not be great, But it allows for players to fight eachother with well placed action bars, great graphics and on some servers, You are constantly in PvP mode, So you can be in a fight with anyone at any point.

    3. Classes(Individual fighting styles), races(Different advantages, such as – speciality in proffessions or general stats), face options, hair, facial hair… Need I say more?

    4. You get a full sized screen in which you can lose yourself in the game and really just let loose, Whereas you are constantly having to focus when playing runescape because you have a stupid little screen in the center or your moniter.

    5. Weapons and Armor… Nobody can even compare the two on this front. Runescape doesn’t even have a 10th of the amount of armor, weapons and general objects that wow has.

    If ANYBODY wishes to discuss this matter further please feel free to leave a comment. I will gladly reply to any sensible questions or enquiries you may have about this post.

    Thankyou for reading.

    Runescape is way better now with all the updates i think runescape is takin over WOW.

    plus its easier to follow
    more enertaining
    and people on runescape arent alway seriouse wich is good because you can joke about and talk to people better than WOW most of the time on WOW people dont talk to you because of your level so its harder to complete quest.

    =] RUNESCAPE RULES TBH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  406. Posted March 31, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    I would like runescape except for the graphics, the fact that you cannot really get involved in the game, the “clicking” instead of using keys to move, and the overall lack of a storyline. In my opinion WoW is a better game.

  407. Posted March 31, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Man im getting sick of trying to play a game and having the age old discussion of is RS better than WoW or vice versa…ITS ALL ABOUT THE PLAYER. people say WoW has mature players, but i think that all the gold farmers,bots,scammers,noobs,loot stealers,etc. have something else to say. plus the fact that the only way to skill is ‘kill for mats’. but wow does have some good points. The people who arnt immature actually make it enjoyable, and the combat is fun, but unlike RS, when you get in a fight, you have to give all your attention, unlike RS when you can plan and do other stuff (like calculate what you need to make for your crafting to go up). But runescapes also bad because hers just as many scammers,noobs,6 yr olds,etc. as WoW. But its better because it needs the person to think, not run around and kill. And unlike WoW, runescapes quests(though not as many as WoW has) need more than a combat lvl. They require you to actually spend time on skills, unlike WoW, in which i got to like lvl 68 by not using my proffesions. and as i said, ITS ALL ABOUT THE PLAYER.ive seen alot of people pull these comments out “WoW is for mindless people who want to kill, but Runescape needs intellegence” or “Wow has more gear and weapons blah blah blah” But to those who say that, its mostly reskins.

And trust me, i’ve played RS, and WoW, WoW is sooooooooooooooo awesome. All of you who commented and said RS is better, well guess what? your prolly a 10 year old! NO KIDDING!!! If you still think rs is better, than why do people keep quitting RS, and how come there’s only like barely 200,000 players? WoW has over 13 million people! so SUCK IT

    After the price increase Runescape has implemented, WoW is definitely the better choice. Sure, Runescape is still less than half the price, but you get less than half the content. The only thing Runescape beats WoW in is the amount of skills you can train, and even those are boring to level up. In this day and age, every computer you buy now should have the specs required to play WoW and they’re fairly cheap, too.

    WoW’s PvE is unparalleled, offering more content than any other game on the market, and the new PvP system puts Runescape’s to shame. Unless you’re just looking to game for free, WoW is definitely worth shelling $8 more over.

    the only reason WOW is better is because it’s on c.d if runescape was on c.d and you had to download runescape then rs would be much better

    First of all, i played Runescape about 5 years, but once i grew older i was getting tired of seeing: Noob,stfu,nub all over the place so i tried WoW, played that for aprox. 2 years, and know what? It’s just the same, maybe a bit les then runescape,but thats with the age difference. As for the way the game works.. i would say the boss killing aspect of WoW is far superior to runescapes, but just training in skills runescape is way better then WoW. Although at higher levels, both games get repetitive. What you do at Runescape at lvl 90+? Grinding. What do you do at WoW at lvl 80? Raiding, Arena PvP,Battlegrounds, Farming, Daily quests or just screwing around. But i had more fun the 2 years playing WoW Then playing rs (;.

    I don’t frickin’ understand how just one of you people can think that PvP in Runescape is better than in World of Warcraft. How is auto-swings and not moving any fun at all? I would explain how WoW’s PvP worked, but it’s way to complicated to explain here. And to those saying you can only get honor from PvPing in WoW, honor get’s you gear. And. Heard of Arena? Arena points? Team rating? right-clicking on your enemy and waiting ’til either you or him is dead can’t be that fun, can it?

    Posted April 21, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Like the guy above said, well, what i understand is that PvP in Wow is a mini game. pathetic. You kill players without any kind of risk. Risk is the thing what makes Runescape PvP much better than in WoW. I’ve played WoW. i was level 63 shaman tauren. But what the hell? new players gotta buy all the expansions to play the game? there is 3 of them now and 4th is coming this year? Then you gotta pay 15$ a month to play it. Runescape gives a chance to choose. Someone said that WoW has way much more items than Runescape. Yes, it’s true. But how often you use all the stuffs WoW has to offer? It’s just my opinion. And these kids saying Runescape is for babies. I think most of WoW players are like 14-15 no lifers. You just believe what everyone says. And ofcourse you are against the game you don’t play. I don’t play none of those anymore. I was level 86 in Runescape and 63 in WoW, and thats where it makes difference too. WoW ends to 80 level, after that is only mini games. Runescape ends when your all 28-30 skills are 99 and all your quests are done. WoW quests are repetitive. Kill 5 fags, kill 10 fags, give this to him, talk to that guy over there, get me sword from mine etc. all runescape quests has a story. It’s a big difference between these games. BUT ofcourse, everyone has their own opinions of these games, so it’s useless to fight against others. Grow up kids.

    Runescape Pros:
    It has lots of skills,
    It has exciting areas and music,
    Lots of weapons and areas.
    Runescape Cons:
    You click a guy, and sit. Seriously.

    look guys i have played runescape as my first mmorpg and got bored after about a year and i was around 10 but then i start wow and right now i play it but i seem to always to go back to runescape sometimes.
    ok so i think that they are both even and by the way why do people argue about a 2 DIFFERENT games ok so shut it.

  429. Posted August 21, 2010 at 6:33 am

    I’ve played both games and completely agree with lol.
    I played runescape and the community is so sissy and bad.
    “join kkeduj2038jf84 to go pkin we OwNNZZ”
    “WE OWNZ UR CLN JOIN STRKFI5″
    the community is just plain bad. and after you do join they “kick” you and say “boot (your name).”
    Forget it.
    WOW offers good grafics, good gameplay, mature community, no “drunk the guard and tie up woman” stuff, tasks make sence, no hackers, no scammers, more 3d play, 50 charters,
    classes, and more so don’t get 3mnth nonsence get one month best game ever!!!

    Look, i’ve played WoW and Runescape. So heres my opinion. Runescape has one of the most immature communities ever, and makes me sick with the thought. I hated also dying and losing all my hard earned items, and it really was not an enjoyable game. Just when i got somewhere i got Perma Banned for what? NOTHING. The graphics suck and all, everything is rubbish. Only SOME of the quests are decent. Wow on the otherhand…. MAture community, if you join the right guilds. Great graphics, fun quests, cool raids. Theres a real feel of epicness when you finish a raid like Icecrown Citadel, or Ulduar, also the Observer titles nice. Just to prove i’ve played wow, to the cap level with decent gear. Whan. Level 72 Paladin. Blackdestroy. Level 80 Rogue.

    I appreciate your efforts to calm down people about all the fuss between the two different games. Unfurtunately, reading the reviews tells me it wasn’t really successful.=(

    This is adressed to the commentors:None of the games are better then each other as they both appeal to different people who prefers different playing styles. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, so calm down, play the game you want to play..and don’t insult others because they choose another game. You will find that it is typical for people to have different viewpoints then you and you really should learn to accept it and move on.

    I\’m the same guy as above, left something out. I do question rather or not wow is as mature as people claims though. The agressive comments against those who prefers runescape suggests otherwise.

    At the same time, I know that many are immature in runescape but this is because of a very, very simple reason. It is more accesible, so ofc more children will be on it. If you\’re mature, ignoring the annoyances of the younger players should be of no problem to you…there is a ignore list after all. What you seem to forget though, is that adults play the game as well.

    In the end, the games are equal. They simply have different playing styles and appeal to different people with different preferences.

    Okay, just saying this to inform people about why the graphics never get better for runescape, it’s because its not…. POSSIBLE to play a game online with graphics exceeding what RS has, in order to play such games you need to download gigs of data which then view the graphics. Plus RS is still running in java script, need i say more. But even still, I will give RS for trying to improve there graphics every now and then.. there’s not much they can do except use little by little of your internet usage for hidden downloads when you start up runescape when you see the loading bar, have you ever noticed it go slow for a while.. well thats when they are doing hidden downloads to you, for their upcoming updates, Hell… in a thew years in time im really gonna feel bad for new RS recruits, theres gonna be forced.. literally if they want to play, to download over gigs of data at start up and not even know it.

    Hi, EvenOpinion here. Just checked up the forum after some months, and I’d like to ask Lol if he’s here? Anyway, it dosen’t matter what you play (actually it does but…) , its your Opinion that matters! Somebody has choice about what to play, I’m fine with people who play runescape, and wow.. There are alot of fanboys out there on both teams. I lost one of my real life friends over wow and runescape (over gold, 500 gold, pathetic), and its annoying. I’m going back to wow for Cataclysm. Save your money take a break. Unforunately I won’t be visiting Runescape again, but please, just choose the game YOU want, not what SOMEBODY else wants and well, just play it! If you hate these games, to complicated or simple theres always Eve Online and Maplestory (Which sucks!) out there to try!

    dude, no offence, but the title says unbisased and ur like biased like a black man. the graphics isn’t that bad sheesh, obviously its worse than wow, its a free game compared to a $15 game. its not repetitve clicking, if u look at it that way, wow is repetitive key-board tapping.

    srsly, u should change ur title to biased wow player

    Honestly NOW IN 2010
    Runescape wins.
    It has good graphics compared to 2007
    and it has graphics a little worse than WOW now.
    Also Runescape has better pvp systems and a choice of 3 things to do. Bounty Hunter, Wilderness, or straight up PVP when you can kill anyone nearly anywhere in the runescape world.
    There is full screen now and it can also be a non member game which isnt exciting as member but very exciting

    Forgot something to the text above

    Oh and yeah, runescape is full of kids nowadays. If you compare runescape 2007 to 2010, the difference is humongous. Runescape is so immature at the moment, so if you play wow that’s something you rarely have to worry about. Also, in runescape when you die and lose items it getts you pissed. That’s also a reason why i prefer wow over runescape. You don’t lose items when you die.

    How can u even compare world of warcraft to the pea-sized game of runescape. world of warcraft is better than runescape in every perspective, wheather it be PVP or PVE or RPVP. runescape you have no skills and lacking in classes. In World Of Warcraft you can have over 8 classes such as, warrior, priest, shaman, mage, death knight, rogue, warlock, hunter, druid…and so on…in runescape all you can do is range, close combat and mage. and the professions you get in runescape in retarded i mean they are nothing comparing to the world of warcraft proffesions. Runescape’s graphic certainly can never be able to catch up to which of world of warcraft’s. Runescape is totally boring, the dungeons and quest are really easy and retarded. in World Of Warcraft, quest are easier to handle and have a better content, unlike the runescape’s quest which are sometime killing rats and retarded stuff. and certainly the armours and weapons you get in world of warcraft is certainly higher in number than of those in runescape. In runescape, all the gears have their own set like steel, bronze, black, mithril, adamant, rune, and dragon. In World of Warcrafts, those weapons have way more details andhave a group of themselfs. The raid or dungeon that u can raid in World Of Warcraft have a very high detailed graphic and have classified mobs and bosses, while the dungeons in runescape is easy to handle and retarded. In runescape, people walk like chickens and gay peoples. In World Of Warcraft their are over 500 commands. World Of Warcraft have their own BG (battle ground). that any player can join at any time for lvling and honor points. And the who map of World Of Warcraft in my opinion is arround 20000000000 times larger than the tiny map of runescape. runescape is nothing camparing to World Of Warcraft, It is almost like comparing Giants with ants. Of cause you need to pay for world of warcraft, the game file is over 20 GB . It’s really the best game i have ever played in my whole life.People that says runescape is better than world of warcraft is totally gay and retarded. Those who agrees with me pls quote ASAP…

    In your discussion you said this…

    “World of Warcraft is full screen and requires more resources from the computer to play. Runescape is a browser game, made in the resource-hog Java, but doesn’t require near as much as World of Warcraft.”

    Runescape can also be full screen too, by pressing the setting button and clicking the fullscreen mode on the bottom right corner of the screen, it’s a members advantage.

    Me and my friends used to play runescape when we were younger – I do agree that when you are younger (under 14) you tend to play runescape since it is more freely available whereas WoW has a less immature community.

    WoW is still, after many, many years, far superior to Runescape.

    Since the Cataclysm update, RS’s only thing it had on WoW, quest quality, is arguable gone or very close.

    Runescape players, don’t say RS is better when you haven’t played WoW and clearly don’t know a thing about it. Just don’t even try.

    WoW is just better in so many ways, actually, no its not, if your under 14 go play runescape, when you drop your balls then come play WoW. Main reason why WoW is better: It actually takes skill, Runescape requires no micro, just click on people and attack them, grinding skills is absolutely horrible in rs, this kinda shows itself by how many people bot.

    WoW is pretty much better in anyway, you dont get idiots on WoW, you can actually trust random people to take your 1000 gold worth of materials to make something for you and give the item back to you. On runescape the only thing I can see happening is the idiot runs off with your stuff.

    What I do like about Runescape is the quests, much more fun and challenging than WoW quests. Thats pretty much it though. Pvp is a joke on runescape, where your gear supplies your epeen.

    People always say wow is too expensive, its really not, its £9 a month, seriously £9 a month? You could scavenge that off the floor in one month with ease

    Hello,

    I would like to response on this discussion, I played RS from start when it was all ugly 2D, I played it for years and got a few 99 lvls and allot of cash (party hat).

    So I know RS by hart and I do find it a good game, sometimes grafics is not all, im sure u all have an old clasic game that if u play it its still fun (mariocarts or zelda, donkeykong ?).

    Anyway I stopped playing RS since they took away the free trade (I was a sales men) didnt care much about wildy though (not realy into pvp at that time).

    At the moment im playing WOW and im only lvl 46 wich goes quite fast compared to RS, anyway I am enjoying myself with WOW and im sure it has many good things to bring in the future so im going to keep on playing.

    But there is a but, since im playing WOW im automaticly picking things up that I did like in RS and that is not avaible in WOW.

    For example the trading, As far as I have seen I think RS is better, because the economie is so big, you can really make it your daily job to buy and sell stuff to make your money, I know because I spend months buying and selling stuff.

    In WOW the economie is much smaller server related, so only a few 100’s that are buying and selling from eachother.

    This is just how the games and I accept, but I do get the feeling in WOW you do not need allot of money, What I mean is that you make money really quick in WOW and the items are not that expensive.

    And in RS its really hard to make money, you can kill beasts all day and end up with a few gold coins, so this makes it verry nice when you get that rare drop of the beast you are slaying for so long and get a feeling you earned it, I know you have rare drops in WOW but still you make lots of gold for killing lets say 3 hours of beasts from the trash you sell to the vendor.

    and in RS you have items that cost millions of gold, my party hat for example is atm over 500 million gold, so if you manage to get one everybody knows you worked hard for it.

    In wow you dont really have that status of items/amour, everybody gets great amour if they play a couple of weeks.

    Also in WOW you are always limited to your lvl, and every lvl has its own stuff, like weapons and potions, so its never to say that you have the best outfit or weapon because as soon as you lvl up it becomes trash and you have to find better amour that suits your lvl.

    In RS this is differend and I do like it better, because if your lvl 10 you can set a goal for yourself like getting full dragon amour (cost a couple of millions but still) you only need to train your defense to a certain lvl (60 i think) and then you can wear it no mather wich levels you have in total.

    So my point is that I do get a better feeling when its coming to items and amour, the feeling you earned it and feeling proud of an item you wanted so long and you worked so hard for it to eventually buy it.

    And the items they keep there status, even as today, full dragon is still one of the outfits you buy when you are a pro, after all these years everybody knows you rock when you have full dragon.

    So this is basicly my opinion about the money system and the feeling of earning cash and items.

    Overall I think WOW is better in allot of ways but here and there I find RS has a better concept specially the things i just explained.

    And hey this is just my personal view and im not claiming anything to be better so dont feel offended please.

    Posted January 28, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    Ok, i really hate it that people comment on RS’s graphics. They are not great, but who cares? Graphics dont matter to me that much. Its the gameplay that matters. Also, i dont know much about WoW but i do know that there is nothing wrong with RuneScape’s community. There are alot of jerks, but im sure there are alot of jerks in the WoW community too. I dont like PvP so i wont comment on that. I dont understand why people like the character system in WoW, but each to their own i guess. The trade limit is about to be lifted now, and besides once you got used to it, you can almost prefer the limit system. I voted for free trade to come back because of nostalgia. So guys, dont compare Rs to WoW, just play what you like, you’ll just piss each other off.

    15$ A month to have 50 extremely diverse character’s in an obviously superior game.
    5$ A month to have 1 player in a small game.

    Besides, people say they prefer Runescape PvP. Is this because it requires a bag full of food instead of skill..?

    You can find proof of World of Warcraft`s more mature player base merely by the grammar of the people posting.

    The majority of people posting on World of Warcraft`s behalf are using almost proper to complete grammar.

    Whereas…let me quote someone above:

    “rs grapahics r awsome wow graphics sucks rs atctivities r better and pvp and quests r awsome pus huse parties and soloing bosses is too much fun“

    Haha, a large player-base of 11-year olds in Runescape is not evident here…is it?

    Anyways. I`ve played both games, as a 13 year old I played Runescape, fun at first, got boring fast.
    Once I had begun to hit puberty I drifted over to WoW, which, ironically, is the more mature game.

    I played World of Warcraft for about a year, and got bored, but guess what? Only days later an expansion was released. In this expansion a whole new CONTINENT was made available, an addition to the 3 original ones (Which are all larger than Runescape to begin with)
    The expansion, Wrath of the Lich King let us go to a frozen land to the North with zones that showed extreme evidence of an in-depth and well-thought out story-line. One I hadn`t seen in Runescape.

    Anyways. I`ll leave it to you all to make your decisions.

    I honestly think that there is absolutely no competition, a game can never be better than another, why? Well everyone has their own opinion. Rs is a great game, I’ve been playing for 3 years, never WoW. But I still don’t prefer any game over each other, if I were to afford WoW, I would play based on my opinion. Rs has millions of people and so does WoW. ‘Nuff said.

    Stop debating!

    I don’t even understand how you’re comparing these two games. WoW dominates Runescape is every aspect, but Runescape is a good game in in its own right. When you compare a game like Runescape which is made by a small, British company with approximately 200-300 people, to an international company with thousands of people working countless hours to improve their game, you just look more stupid then these Runescape fanboys. Runescape is a good game when you compare it to other Java games, but not when you compare it to WoW. We’re comparing the games here, and when you say “Runescape’s players are immature” then you’re not even comparing the game, you’re comparing the social aspect of it. Runescape PvP is nothing but RNG, and please, for all you Runescape players who think you’re “skilled”, try a different game. There’s no such thing as a “noob” in Runescape, simply because the levels you have are entirely dependant on the amount of time you’ve put into the game. If your total level is 2496, it doesn’t make you “more skilled”, it just means you’ve spent more time playing then someone with a total level of say, 300. Just because Runescape offers more skills, doesn’t make it better. Those skills are useless, you get them for the sake of increasing your total level/skill cape. The reasons you’re only allowed two skills in WoW is because they’re actually useful, and they don’t want a bunch of overpowered players. Once you hit 99 in a skill in Runescape, that’s it, you never touch the skill again. In WoW, the expansions bring about new possible total levels, in which you can increase your abilities further. I like the fact that reaching the top doesn’t take you 9 years of playing as it does in WoW, because I don’t have the time to expend 250 days + playing time to reach the top, I spent about 1300 hours in a single year to be one of the best geared rogues on my server. Runescape is NOT a bad game, but when you compare it WoW, you make it seem so. Stop being ignorant and play the damn game.

    “omg i seriously cannot believe that anyone could say that runescape is in ANYWAY better than wow!! u guys who claim that you play WoW and choose runescape over it are lying as this is an inconceivable point. WOW is internationally acclaimed for being thousands of times better than WoW. Dial up connection?? if you still live in the 90’s then yes fair enough but come on guys, dial up in 2007?? Runescape is for children! Wow has better graphics, much better game play and team play, better game interaction (important in a MMRPG) it is 100 times more fun to play and your character is personal! Apart from looks, a runescape player can be everything on one character hence; warcraft the characters are personalised in looks specs, playing style, PVE raids/PVP/roleplaying and many other ways. WoW defeats runescape. FULL STOP.”

    Okay, 1, you have terrible grammar. It just goes to show how low the intelligence levels of WoW players are.

    2. If you are so stupid that you cannot comprehend that people who use dialup are NOT stuck in the 90s, then that further proves my point. I do not use dialup myself, but that’s an absolutely idiotic thing to say.

    3. It may have been simple a few years ago, but it was NEVER for children, in any way. You know why? Because the economic system is absolutely unforgiving; one little mistake, and months of work go down the drain. This changed when they put in the stupid wilderness/free trade removal update, but they came to their senses when a new CEO stepped in. RS Childish? Nope.

    4. Yes, WoW may have better graphics and gameplay, but what if you’re playing on a laptop? I can hardly get ETW to play quickly on low graphics, while that doesn’t even need an internet connection, and I am playing on a brand new computer!

    5. Better player interaction? I disagree, the interaction between players in runescape is not only mandatory for certain quests, but it is necessary if you want to get ahead in the game at all; if other players do not acquire resources which you can buy, you would need 85 slayer just to own a whip. You see?

    6. I’ve had a lot of fun with runescape since the moment i started playing, back in October 04. The fun is based on your personal tastes, so this is an invalid point. If you try to say that your character is impersonal in runescape, then you have obviously never even played the game, because in RS, your character is about as personal as a character can be in an online game.

    7. First of all, being able to do everything with one character is actually much better, since you can switch combat styles in the middle of combat, so that you don’t have to level up several different characters, etc. Players come up with several PvM raids in RS all the time, PvP is the same way.

    WoW does NOT defeat Runescape, and Runescape does NOT defeat WoW. Every single point you have tried to make has been both invalid and delivered in a childish manner. You say that anyone who says that they played both games and doesnt love warcraft over runescape is a liar? Right, because if they dont have YOUR opinion, it has to be wrong. If anything, it seems to me that YOU are the one who has never played Runescape, because you are so ignorant of the basic details of the game and it’s superior qualities to WoW.

    In short, Runescape IS in many ways superior to WoW, especially with the return of free trade and the wilderness. Meanwhile, the limitations on each single character in WoW is enough to be a turnoff for many, myself included. The RS community may be bad, but after seeing the childishness, idiocy, ignorance, failure to provide logical reasons and evidence for those reasons in a comment, and inability to accept others opinions possessed by the players of WoW, It is safe to say that the community is RS is much better as well.

Meanwhile, the limitations on each single character in WoW is enough to be a turnoff for many, myself included. The RS community may be bad, but after seeing the childishness, idiocy, ignorance, failure to provide logical reasons and evidence for those reasons in a comment, and inability to accept others opinions possessed by the players of WoW, It is safe to say that the community is RS is much better as well.

    Go make love to your WoW pixels, kid, and leave everyone else alone.

    Hmmmm… Wow or RS?
    Well. I personally respect Runescape, when I was 7-10 I loved the game. It was fun; there were quests, Monster and Dragons. One Day in the Fifth Grade, a girl was talking (obsessively) about how “awesome” World of Warcraft was, and how her dad played it. I sort of laughed it off thinking that nothing could be better than runescape. But I looked at some YouTube videos of wow and I was immediately entranced. Runescape is a decent RPG and but I truly believe world of warcraft is better. World of Warcraft currently has 1 million more paying subscribers than Runescape. It definitely has better graphics. It has an understandable written storyline that ties into every aspect of the game, every quest has purpose in some aspect of the story. For Example, the Humans and Orcs are at war, so in Lakeshire There are many quests dealing with killing Orcs. While the Orcs have the exact opposite in their homeland of Durotar(is that spelled right?) were there are quests fighting humans. I especially don’t understand all this about runescape has better PVP; in runescape pvp seems to be mostly in a single arena with 1v1 combat. In world of warcraft there is 1v1 in duels, 2v2, 3v3 and 5v5 in arenas and 10vs10, 20vs20 and 40vs40 in battle grounds (unlimited people in Wintergrasp). World of warcraft has two factions with 12 different races which encourage pvp combat in almost all aspects of the game (PvP server), while runescape has 1 race, humans. The dungeons in world of warcraft have incredible structure and epic boss fights that make runescape dongeonering look like nothing. In world of warcraft there are also raids that go up to 25 people. World of warcraft has far more freedom, you can actually jump, you can get a raid group with 40 people at any time and simply raid a enemy city. You don’t lose all your gear from death and when you do die you are reincarnated into a ghost and you find your dead body. The world of warcraft world, including the new Maelstrom zones, Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Northrend and the Outlands completely dwarf the runescape map. One wow continent is the almost half the size of runescape. The only reason it doesn’t seem like that is because Jagex made everyone walk on foot, making longer travel times. Which brings me to mounts, in world of warcraft you can ride on 100’s of different creatures including lions tigers and bears (oh my!). You can ride on the dragon like drakes and even wyrms. The spells and effects are much better and there number of spells and skills in world of warcraft is 36 times the number in runescape (fact). There are many unique classes while in runescape there is no class but just an assortment of skills. In world of warcraft movement is easy and smoother than runescape, you can swim and there is even a entire city under the ocean were you can quest and trade. Bosses are epic while in runescape bosses have few special attacks. World of warcraft is 15 dollars a month. And truly it’s worth it. Please trust me, all the words in the response are true facts and I already know by posting this that I’m going get 15 hate responses.
    ”@ ventan , u jackass! Rs is beter! Wurld of worcuft sucs!”
    I actually feel pretty bad about slamming a game I used to worship. I currently play wow with 2 level 80’s and a 85. And a 125 on runescape. Here are some links to screen shots of both games, you decide which is better.

    really how can anyone make the horrible mistake of thinking that wow pvp is worse than runscape it far far far far better. and how can you make the mistake of saying that runescape graphics are better to wow graphics are 10 times better. Almost every aspect of wow is better than runescape. Its like comparing a ninja(wow) to a wiener dog(RS)
    just look up wow pvp and runscape pvp on youtube. and the truth will set you free!
    and lastly im going to make a point noone can deny

    WOW WAS NOMINATED BEST GAME OF ALL TIME TOP 20 IN !& GAME MAGANZINES
    RUNSCAPE DIDNT MAKE IT INTO THE TO 200
    WOW IS NOMINATED TOP MMORPG OF ALL TIME BY 39 MMO FORUMS!! RS WAS NOMINATED FROM 2
    ON GAME INFORMER, BLIZZARD(wow developer if you didnt know) WAS NOMINATED TOP DEVELOPER OF ALL GENRES

    I prefer rs mainly because its free and there is a cheap membership £3.50/$5. It does lack world size, mounts, and quests. but wow is just to quest heavy. and in rs there are many more skills and pvp is awesome! And you can most skills right from the begining.

    I played Runescape for 15 months and leveled to 137. It’s an easy game to play. I got hacked and lost 100’s of millions and was getting bored of it anyway. I’m trying WOW, and so far, I think it’s a much better game. The grafix are much better and doesn’t seem to lag as much. It is harder to understand, but that’s good for me. I do have to say that for awhile, I really enjoyed Runescape, but I think I will enjoy WOW more.

    I played Runescape for the longest time. i was 86 with all the other stats damn near 99. Then i realized i got bored way to easy. I was talking to a few friends and they mentioned world of warcraft and how they where doing this and that. I looked into it, tried the free week and what do you know? Better movement (wasd), the attacks where based on the 1 throughb = buttons, the quests very rarely sent me from 1 part of the world to the other bloody part. The people seemed more mature on wow and it was a fun experience over all. Sure wow has it’s downsides. The cost is BS, the expantions cost bs, every tuesday expect peeps to be QQing. the game can be very repeative but with more player interactions, factions, it does seem to be worht paying for the upgrades. I played RS for almost 6 years and i have only played WoW for like 4. RS allowed one character. Wow allowed 10 and i have 7 out of 10 characters at maxed. WoW had more freedom than RS did.

    Runescape is definetly better than WoW. Runescape has tons of quests and once you get into them, you understand the whole story of Runescape. The PvP on Runescape is a million times better (although I hate to PvP). One thing that annoys me about Runescape though, is the number of players who disrespect you for being a lower level than them. I don’t have this trouble anymore because I am a level 95. But, I see people calling others ‘noobs’ and telling them to ‘gtfo’ because they aren’t good fighters. Plus, low levels never get picked for the awesome Dungeoneering groups and for example, if I am like in Castle Wars or something like that, all the higher levels will be mean to the low level in the team and force them to switch teams. It’s so mean.

    why are people cursing each other over two games? I would continue watching this and continue laughing at the heated discussions, especially coments from the WoW players.

    WoW players arent always more matured, they just know much more swear words. their comments have proven this.

    I would pick Runescape probably from playing it since ‘07. But besides that, Runescape gives you a choice of doing something or not.You can hang out in World 1 or do something you like. I would pick Runescape.

  484. seriously?

    To all you sad WOW fans (especially lol), WOW is just killing and questing runescape has way more to do even with the annoyance of the 12 year olds, and if it weren’t for the wasd walking then WOW would be a” click,pause,repeat” game….

    Ok guys. This is a really hot topic in the MMORPG community. And i am going to set this straighy in a non-bias POV.

    First, i’ve dedicated a lot of time to both games. I got to max level (85) in WoW and have a fairly high level in RS (105). I have payed for membership for RS so i know what im talking about.

    1) Graphics; Rs is suppose to be a simple game, and does not use a dedicated client to run. The graphics have been altered to look not as bad, however they do not come close to those of WoW. However, it takes way more CPU usage to play WoW. Because the argument is named ‘Graphics,’ Wow takes the point simply becauae the graphics are way better.
    1-0

    2) Questing; Wow has simple, fast quests while Rs has harder and longer quests. Wow has many more quests than Rs and it follows a huge lore line that links to many games and even comics. Rs follows a storyline however it is not as evident. The reason Wow earns this point is because the game helps you learn how to play your class and spec.
    2-0

    3) Skills; Runescape skills are vast and allow you to do a few more things than in wow. Wow skills are very easy to cap (525 is max level at the moment) and Rs skills are dificult and boring. Rs earns this point because the skills are very unique to the game, but it is very close in that margin
    2-1

    4) PvE; Player vs Environment is the BIGGEST part of WoW and is one of the strongest areas of updates in the game. RS PvE is morw daring because u need good gear and there is a chance you will lose it. Dungeons and Raids are more thorough. Rs bosses are only the boss, healing is done by eating full pieces of fish and drinking potions. Tactics must be used in WoW and group teamwork MUST be fantastic while runescape bosses can be done easily without communication. Its evident WoW gets the point because of the above
    3-1

    5) PvP; Rs ‘Pking’ is very simple and resorts a lot to what skill you have and what armour your wearing. Wow takes an incredible amount of talent that takes a long time to master. Wow PvP is veeeery unique. Arena (Created teams of 2, 3, 5) Battlegrounds (random teams that play objective games) and duels, and skirmishes to practice against friends. Rs has games too that compare to Wow. Fist of Guthix, Fight Pits, and Castle Wars. The games are practical and fun to play however Wow has double the PvP runescape does. wow recieves point 5 because of the talent needed and the vast area of Pvp.
    4-1

    Now those were the main things that both game relate to in some way. There are many ways to look at these everchanging games but in reality, Wow is better for PvP, PvE, questing, and Graphics, while RS strives in its skills and its low price.

    One last thing that is a huge topic is the community. RS community sucks. Simple as that. People spam adds for gold selling sites (Which DOES happen on WoW but not as much), and people are way to immature.

    In the end, personal preferance is the decider, i choose Wow because it is a fantastic game for its PvE and PvP.

    Each game has its ups and downs but nothing is bad, it is only unique in its own way. Hopefully this has cleared up a lot of confusion

    I have been playing wow since the classic beta, and runescape since day 1. i have lost all interest in runescape. but still find WoW fun. And for those of you under level 60 complaining about pvp, you can spend your honor on gear,mounts,accessories, and other junk at 60 plus.

    Player mods in RS ruin everything, WoW is billion times better, I have two lvl 85’s so far and 5 lvl 70’s+ and so far I haven’t got bored on my 85’s I do raids, dungeons, pvp, a bit of rp I mean everything, I lvl up my profs unlike RS, when you hit your lvl cap you just lvl up your useless skills like FM and farm money which is pretty lame, if RS put more endgame content it would be awesome

    WoW takes the cake. No choice, no fight. there’s no argument. I play runescape cuz its cheaper. Yeah, it’s a million times easier to lvl in WoW and get 85 in like 2 months if your relaxed. In runescape holy jesus it takes years of nonstop grinding, and that’s not what its about. I think games should be more about endgame, not taking lifespans to lvl to max. Also, pvp in in rs is very unfair. if you die, bam you lose everything. I mean come on, what is that? WoW is also much bigger in terms of size, quests, and gameplay apsects. No, I don’t mean SKILLS, in which runescape beats WoW, I mean pure gameplay. Tactics and communication are necessary, everything is not the same clicking away, which is every skill in runescape albeit with a different item. And yes, that age old argument that WoW graphics are better. Cliche, stereotypical, it doesn’t matter because guess what, it’s TRUE. WOW GRAPHICS ARE BETTER. SUCK IT UP. It’s not all about graphics, yeah, I know, but it sure as hell counts for something. Runescape….don’t even get me started. Yeah, they updated a while ago to better graphics, but it still doesn’t wave a stick to WoW’s graphics. Also being better at runescape doesn’t mean anything because hey “I’ve sat at my computer longer and clicked more than u have!!!11! HAHAHA I’m so much better dan you!!!” W/e. I’m not hating on rs, because I do play it, but WoW is just a more dynamic game that focuses on the correct aspects (endgame, pve, etc.) and not the endless grind that runescape is. I like runescape quests, they’re actually very good and cover a broad range of skill levels, but WoW has hundreds of quests, far more than runescape has. I’m not sure if they’re any good or if they’re just “Go kill 15 Zargons”, so I won’t say anything about those. Anyway that’s my viewpoint. Oh, and yeah, WoW is 15 bucks a month and runescape only 5 with endless free trial. Guess what? RUNESCAPE FREE TRIAL IS HORRIBLE. F2P has no say in anything concerning updates or game content, and they get about 1/6th of the rs game world, 1/50th of the items, and 1/10th of the quests. It is also littered with bots and scammers and goldsellers advertising their sites. Runescape pay to play is much better, you get the whole world, all skills (GRINDSCAPE) etc, but it is nothing when compared to the colossal quest-ridden dynamic game that is WoW. Yeah, $15 for WoW. $5 for the actual Rs. It’s like paying more to buy a house instead of a shed. DUH, A HOUSE IS BIGGER. It has air conditioning, paint, many rooms, etc. YOU PAY MORE FOR SOMETHING THAT IS BETTER. THAT’S HOW LIFE WORKS.

    Me? Lvl 85 Tauren Paladin, 85 Disc Priest, 85 Sub Rogue. Cata WoW. Also lvl 95 RS player. Overall i think that the pricing of wow compared to rs is fair since they offer more and better graphics along with a bigger community. The pvp in rs is definitly better in wow its limited. However what really got me to quit runescape and switch to wow is the Pve style. The way ppl join guilds, lvl and gear together, ACTUALLY LEARN TO PLAY A CLASS rather than farm some money on rs buy some weapons and spam click them swordfish made it entertaining. The satisfaction of downing a raid boss in WoW is pretty nice, along with minor things like unlimited trade amount/not so anal ban rules/variety of choices. Dont get me wrong, every now and then i still play runescape since it was my first MMORPG but, after giving wow 2 months, it clearly surpasses RS.

    Haha….Sitting here in 2012…played RS since I was 12 (now 22). I got bored and sick of the repetitive gameplay. I mean the grind was just TERRIBAD. Ended up switching to WoW in 2009. I fell in love with it because let’s face it, WoW and 90% of all the other mmos are what mmos are supposed to be. BUT….wow started getting boring just like runescape. In January of 2012 I walked away from WoW and plunged into the Star Wars Universe of SWTOR…I fell in love with MMOs all over again with it, but once I hit endgame there….just like wow and Runescape-boring grind. I’m now sitting here at my computer in April of 2012 waiting on GW2. If GW2 fails then I’m quitting mmos all together. BUT………………in the meantime…………….while I’m waiting and as I write this comment……my bot is chopping trees in Runescape. Truth be told?…RS isn’t that bad if you have a bot ;) Cheers!

    AGHHHHHHH why wont people learn… RS is an MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game… am i right? well… obviously you can be a mage, range and melee but cmon! the whole point of an MMORPG game is to play YOUR ROLE! “YOUR ROLE” in WoW you can be the healer (role) DPS (Role) or the Tank (Role)… in RS it is mainly about solo… solo pvp… solo monsters… solo skills… RS has dungeoneering yeh… but that is a skill… dungeoneering should be the whole of RS!!! granted… this is what makes RS a unique game… but in my opinion it should not be classed as a MMORPG game, just a MMOG would be fine… anyway… WoW is so much better… how can you compare a browser game to a 15-20Gig disk game… RS may be the king of f2p broswer MMO’s but WoW stands tall over RS…
