They constantly bring updates and activities to keep YOU, ME, ALL OF US, HOOKED. Like addicts. They keep updating the game so it never ends, and you never finish, because they think that people will keep playing as long as they create new content. And that means more money in the bank for them.

This latest Menaphos update is a prime example, as soon as everyone completes Menaphos' grindfest of content, they'll have another release planned along the corner, so you can't even enjoy whatever content it is you unlocked, you now have to unlock the next piece of content, without having time to even enjoy what you've unlocked. It's no longer a game, it's now a grind. The best thing about this game used to be that you could do whatever the hell you wanted whenever you wanted, and you still can do that, but at the cost of missing out on an exaggerated amount of exp and content. We are no longer free, running in the wild, we are a system of "noxpwaste" where "xp" and reputation are more important than actually having fun in this game. We want to have fun, we don't want to grind. Grinding tires us. Bring us more fun, not more grind, Jagex. You bring us fun, and less grind, and we'll keep putting money in your selfish banks.

It's an MMO what did you expect?

Menaphos being a huge flop of a boring grindfest? Now THAT I can agree with.

Well I can understand your frustration and feel for you. I am and will always be free. We all choose what and how we play this game. Some players feel the need to be completists, while others do not. My only advice to you is "do whatever you want and don't get addicted to all the content. I've been playing for over 10+ years and still enjoy it. May you find your peace and joy

We are all free, it's just I've been trying to catch up so that I can at least do all miniquests and quests, and it takes so much time, you need more than 90 in pretty much all skills to be able to finish all miniquests. My favorite part of the game is quests, so I'm rather pissed at the fact that I have to grind hours for 3 master quests that give 1 qp each and the reward is reputation (except for the crocodile tears one that gives ability to walk the desert without damage).

So the enchanted water tiara has just become dead content? I guess I can live with that, but it really undermines the usefulness of that quest reward.
Hi.

It would appear so, but at least we can withdraw all the water runes from it.

my worst gripe was change to death that 15 min gravestone was my lifeline on quests that i die on or get disconected from but ya know what im not even maxed i love the lore ingame not even done all quests:P play the game how ya like dont concentrate on mass updates ya will find out as we do for all the hype it usually pitters down to -.- lv after a month.
im still to complete livid farm content i like the new area but im in no rush to complete it. as for outfits i try but if i dont get it aww well i will live. ya have to give yourself timeout even if you love the game or ya become very angery at it.
mind you i was used to ither a game fix or one quest a month when i joined so iv been here through all the real muck up days to the best.it will get better if ya play for fun an stop exp watching an compairing yourself to others just have fun. im a d.i.y all round skiller type an very happy:)
