Welcome back. :)

1) Main difference - just tons more content now, and experience comes much more quickly and afk style for many things. For a great example of this, check out the mining and smithing rework - plenty of things to start out with.

2) I can't say much as I don't play f2p often, but I imagine it's much the same - F2P gets the occasional content update whereas of course most content is reserved for members. Still, tons of things to be done in f2p.

3) Not really an expert enough that I could comment on anything, I'd say. Certainly fewer users on the forums these days - most players are on Reddit or other social media.

4) Combat is something that has certainly expanded. Lots more creatures to fight, bosses to kill, etc. - if you are/were a combat fan, that's something to look at too

Runescape is one of them types of games that you stop playing for awhile and end up eventually going back to and getting hooked on again. YouTube.***/BrettyBoy200

Mainly a few low level quests and bosses like Giant Mole and KBD. Some minigames too.

Not too much added to skills though. Fletching is new to f2p though. Otherwise, they let free players train every skill up to level 5.

Many member items were made f2p too, mainly the lowboe ones except protean items and fletching lamps/stars due to the new skill.

Oh! Correction... actually big update in Mining and Smithing. Everything from ores to bars to the smithing system has changed. Now, equipment has pluses. You definitely want to try this. :)

1) you can buy loads of bonus XP and GP to skip gameplay

2) Nothing, all moneymaking methods have become mediocre at best due to inflation and lack of improved droptables. Skill wise you can still max skills but they're not as valuable as they were years ago. They also removed high level content.

3) F2P - worst state it's been in. P2P - fine if you love PvM, has seen better times though

4) There are a lot more elite PvM bosses, if that's not your cup of tea you might as well migrate to OSRS which is the healthier game and has a more diverse community.

1) Players can buy load of GP to skip gameplay since 2012 with Bonds. OP probably knew it already. It is nothing new. As a free player, OP can't buy many bonus XP since free players are limited to use only a small sample of stars.

2) Jmods already blew away the "inflation in RS3" lie in live stream. RS3 is in deflation for years because of Invention and Mining and Smithing Rework among other updates. Inflation and subsequent counter-inflation measures like taxes? That's only in the other game but definitely not in RS3. GE historical graphs show it.

3) PvM always get more attention in Jagex games, whether you are f2p, because modern players are more into action based content. Free players should be glad you get some bosses to kill that they couldn't in >5 years ago.

4) What? Elite mobs? Of course they are not free players' cup of tea because elite mobs are member content
