How came quests are not buyable but skills are?
Would make more sense if quests were and skills not imo.
Dont forget, you can't bot quests, which is why goldfarmers jump straight to money making and manage to make many millions before they get banned. If they had to get skill requirements they would most likely bot them as well and get banned sooner.

Anyways my main point of this thread is:
English is not my first language and I often simply dont understand what game wants from me.
Youtube videos help sometimes but then quests take lots of time and not fun at all.
This is the reason I hate doing quests and i think I would pay to skip them (first time in my life I would pay irl money to get something in game) :D

How does it make sense to have anything else in the game buyable with real money other than the membership fee? Jagex already gets paid from that, so much so to still make a decent profit with membership fees alone, so you're literally only hurting yourself by asking something more to be buyable, since it's absolutely pointless for you as a customer to pay more than that.

Fair enough problem, but why would you try to resolve that kind of problem by asking Jagex to skip content for you in exchange for paying more money to them than is needed? Why wouldn't you instead ask Jagex to make that content (quests) more fun for you instead? That's what the membership fee is for: Jagex continuing to improve the game.

Just saying, there are so many better ways to spend money than to pay to skip playing a video game, and you won't always be able to solve your problems with money, so it's better for you long term as well to not get comfortable with money solving everything by looking for alternative ways first instead. :P

That's because Runescape is an entertainment. Quests give you the entertainment but skills themselves don't give you the same entertainment.

Quests are like the movie or TV content you want to experience yourself personally. Skills are supposed to be like the popcorn and soda that enhance your enjoyment of the movie.

However, when skills become a burden instead of enhancers of your enjoyment of quests, you get a chance to skip it with some payment. :)
