hey guys, I've no memory of EVER playing RS3, just recently i heard that OSRS wwwas out on mobile and came to play it... However, my OSRS account appears to now be on RS3. I've never played RS3. My account predates RS3.

I have history that predates RS3 https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/519250161126473739/589483512256790535/unknown.png

RS3 is the continuation of the game from 2012 onwards. OSRS is a separate game that was released later.

Simply, RS3 is where your stats are meant to be and you can't transfer them to OSRS.

RuneScape and Old School

RuneScape (also known as RS3) is the game that has long evolved since its days in 2001. If your account was created before 2013, this is what you've played before and where your stats will be alongside many years of additional updates.

Old School RuneScape (OSRS) is a game released in 2013 that was created from a chance encounter. They found a backup of the RuneScape source code as it was on August 10th, 2007. To make it fair to everyone, they made everyone start with new accounts.
Since its release, OSRS has seen a surge of updates that never took place in the original games development, making it an entirely different game.


TL;DR RS3 = the game you played, where your stats are
OSRS = the game you remember, where your stats aren't

Runescape, or RS3 for those who prefer to call it, is the main game. Any other Jagex game in the Runescape Franchise, mind it OSRS or new ones in the future are just different games. You don't share data between these games.

Actually, OP should have noticed OSRS doesn't have RS3 copied over when he leveled thieving to level 6 and Runecrafting to level 9.

Your stats are quite low anyway. I'll think it won't take you too long to get to those levels in OSRS (although still far slower than in RS3) anyway, if you want to play there.

Yes it was all built on what is now known as rs3

Osrs is a seperate game that everyone started at level 3.

Go play RS3 and use legacy then!

Legacy isn't good for anything; if you wanted to play Runescape with the old combat system, OSRS does exactly that for you and better. If you wanted to play RS3 specifically, just learn EoC with revolution, since the game is balanced around EoC, not legacy.

No. There's a lot of benefits to playing legacy over revolution.
