I used to play around 5-6 years ago and I'm getting back into the game. I just noticed that so much has changed and I was curious if anyone could give me some suggestions on how to ease the transition into the new combat system and everything else that has been added to the game. I'm going to by the membership soon but I just wanted to know if its almost too difficult for old players to transition to the new system. I'm ready to grind again, I'd just like to waste as little time as possible. I have about 4mil stocked up too (as well as a full dragon plate set) so if anyone has any suggestions for powerful equipment these days that would be great as well.

Hey there and welcome back to the game! :)

I'll try to order these in importance for you.


1. To learn the new EoC system, there's an area a little east of Lumbridge called the Combat Academy (directly east of the general store) which is a little tutorial of the system.

2. If you haven't already, I'd highly recommend unlocking the Elf City first - which required completion of 'Plagues End' quest. It's probably one of the most helpful areas in the entire game currently.

3. Dragon isn't good equipment anymore, however it'll be able to start you off with getting higher tier gear (Torva/Pernix/Virtus). To gain money easier, I'd start with training slayer as you can gain a lot of GP from it.

4. Start the minigame 'Player Owned Ports' and send out ships daily. It takes around 3 months, but after then, you gain access to free Tier 85 gear (Death Lotus, Seasingers, Tetsu). While these are T85, they're not really good in terms of DPS or other armours, as they're considered "tank" armour, however they do the job for slayer and some other tasks. :P

5. If you're trying to get skills up, then the Eastern Lands (Arc) is a good place for leveling in your own private skilling areas.

Hi! Sorry for the late response. The forms don't give notifications apparently. Just a few questions.

I was able to sell off my dragon to get the Baro's GWD set and godsword. Is this a decent melee setup still? Also, I have nor gained access to the elf city nor am I anywhere near having all the requirements for Plague's End. Do you have another suggestion for what to unlock? Also, is there any new areas that are good for grinding runecrafting? I'm at 40 and need to hit 50 for devious minds...

It should be fine until you get higher levels.

If you're no where near Elf City requirements, I'd highly recommend working towards that as a priority, as that area is
very
helpful. A slightly lower tier area would be Menaphos - which needs 'The Jack of Spades' quest.

As for runecrafting - I suppose just afk RuneSpan until 50. It shouldn't take too long to get.
