I have two maxed rs3 accounts, both ive moved to osrs after max. Ive been toying with the idea of doing a 3rd account but not sure if thats worth it these days.. Thats alot of Stealing creation to grind for alot of bxp and alot of gp id have to swap over to rs3.. do you think its worth it?

Both of my maxed mains are 99/120 dg inv and slayer.

I dont plan to do abilities if i do make this a third rs3 maxed account cause legacy is life to me.

If those accounts have both been regular accounts and the third one would be a regular as well, why would you bother doing the same thing yet another time? If you're gonna do it again, at least spice it up with ironman mode or something? > )

I am maxed too and there is no way I care about maxing and grinding again.

However, there are numerous ways to play RS3 thankfully and "maxing" or "grinding" are just yesteryear's matters to me. I play a game merely to have fun, enjoy the entertainment and appreciate the creativity of the game developers.

Personally, I don't care about xp and levels anymore. Again, thankfully, with RS3 Jagex is proactively rolling out new content with brand new ideas like Player Owned Farm, Player Owned Dungeons, Achievement Bonanza, Skill reworks that start with Mining and Smithing and such. These are all interesting and "different" kinds of content I couldn't find the last many many years I spent on "maxing" my characters.

I won't let "maxing" and "grinding" get into my mind when I play a game now. If a game is all about "maxing" and "grinding" then it is as good as a dead game just like all the 9000 dead MMORPGs under the sky. I simply won't touch it with a 9000 foot pole.

Thanksfully, RS3 is not one of these uninspiring "maxing" and "grinding" games and I strongly advise veteran players who have gone through the "grinding" and "maxing" for nothing dark era of MMORPGs to live a living game experience without having "maxing", xp or levels preoccupying their minds. ;)

I have a maxed account, been around since about day dot, tried running an iron woman but got tired with that, and now on this skiller account which I'm quite enjoying. I guess on my maxed the target of being a completionist was just too daunting..so I fully endorse creating your own goals, particularly if they are unique to you and are a bit of fun and a time filler (if you have it)

peace and happiness to all

I don't have 120 Slayer or Invention, but otherwise I have two maxed accounts, and am regretting making a third normal account that currently has several 99s, so I'd say don't do it unless you plan to stop playing at least one of the other accounts entirely, its just too time consuming and pointless having to do everything over again, and trying to play three accounts.

I've gone from loving quests to hating them. By the third account, I just don't want to do them any more. There is also the fact the bosses are harder in newer quests and I hate hard bosses.

I feel like all my time is spent on dailies, ports, and player owned farms, then repeating on my other 2 accounts, so I don't really enjoy playing, instead I feel like I'm doing chores.

I tried OSRS, but when I saw it was following the same pattern as RS3 of only bosses matter and skilling being neglected, things that should come from skilling coming as monster drops instead, I saw no point continuing. I wanted to make GP through Smithing, but that was never going to happen when you can't make anything above rune and Jagex gives all end gear as monster drops instead of through Smithing or other non combat skills, making continuing to train them pointless.

I tried ironman, but got discouraged when I saw the best skilling items came only as boss drops and not from skilling, so I quit that when I realized I would never be able to have any hatchets or pickaxes above rune since I can't trade as an ironman and don't fight bosses.

If you just like getting 99s/120's, then you could, but then what, start a 4th account, a 5th account, and repeat?

I personally don't plan to make any more accounts and instead will focus on the ones I have, maybe even cut down to one or two, but what is good about this game is you can decide on your own goals, so if you want to train up another account you can do it, but maybe it would be better to focus on the accounts you already have.

Damn, quite the boasting thread.

On topic to your seemingly irrelevant question to the purpose of the thread, yes, SC is certainly worth it. If you even find a game with people, it certainly breaks up the grind.

You can make money with Smithing in OSRS via Blast Furnace. Other profitable skills include Farming, Thieving, and Hunter.

I'm maxed on RS3, and I can't imagine doing it all over again. I'd much rather try something slightly different and start off in OSRS.

If you really really want to grind and "max" again, I'll recommend any MMORPG not run by Jagex.

You can easily find 9000 grindfest MMORPG like Anarchy, Tibia, Ultima, Ragnorak, etc, etc. At least they are "different" than Runescape. They should be at least a tiny bit of "refreshing". :D

Don't grind and try to be "maxed" again in Runescape if you have originally gone through the ordeal twice. Look at the bigger picture, there are heaps of new achievements, or even hiscores ones, if you care that much about ranking.

For instance, you can have fun trying to kill Araxxor with full bronze. It doesn't need boring grinding or maxing whatsoever.
