I really appreciate all of the quality of life improvements that were brought in. Stuff like the toolbelt and the lodestone network are really nice to have and make the game much more enjoyable than it used to be.

A big reason that I left is that the game used to be such a chore to do anything but alot of that has been resolved. I haven't tried EOC yet (I enabled legacy combat so I can get my bearings with the game) but It's good to be back

If you don't like the eoc combat(I think it is fine), You can still use it for non combat skilling. You can drag and drop items to your Action bar to use or for quick dropping items to the ground. And other cool things.

Welcome back! I can totally relate to the thing about the game sometimes feeling like a chore. DailyScape/GrindScape stuff (such as the added GrindScape event for the Hati/Skoll/Fenrir event) is beyond infuriating but thankfully, they seem to be cutting down on those things at least a little. And as for EoC, I recommend taking your time with it. Use Legacy as something to fall back on as you learn EoC. As a nearly 15-year veteran of this game (12 on this account), it took me some time to fully figure the system out but once I did, I never looked back. I haven't played Legacy since it was introduced as EoC, despite its flaws, is a lot more interactive and even can be fun at times.

As the people have stated above, if you need help or have a question about something that was added after you went on your hiatus, feel free to PM me!

I see our experiences have been about the same! I came back about a year ago after a ~8 year absence and have stuck around thanks to the dramatic increase in QoL. The fact that RS seemed determined to disrespect the player's time by dragging out even the most basic of tasks was one of the biggest reasons I originally quit. I mean, MMOs like this are timewasters by design but that doesn't mean simply getting around has to take so long, you know?

You don't have to worry too much about EoC; I've hardly touched it since I came back. There's Legacy-only servers where the combat is just about how you remember it (though fair warning, a lot of the late-game bosses were clearly not designed with Legacy in mind; however looking at your stats I'd say that you've got plenty of time before you need to worry about that).

Welcome back, and have fun!
