It is a fantastic time to research and get used to RuneScape. As far as osrs and to a lesser extent RS3, it's a fantastic time to train a few fundamental skills, stick around lumby and find some woodcutting levels on reg, oak, willow burning them after. 50 firemaking is necessary for wintertodt. Better Axes can be bought in Bob's axes. There are several members quests which will speed up early levels exponentially including waterfall pursuit. They are pog if making money on runescape do the everyday challenges. I would recommend staying f2p for weekly or 2(depending how much you play) or until you start becoming locked behind members content. No point getting membership immediately as most of the game is free material.
My advice: OSRS if you just need a huge GrindScape, but RS3 is more multifaceted and provides more choices for individuals attempting to play RS while also having lives and jobs. Afking and semi-afking is considerably more common and adaptable in RS3 for when you can not always devote undivided attention to RS, and there is also a ton of fun activities for when you want to be more engaged. I haven't played into deep-game content in OSRS, but that is from my experience with it I do have, it's complete attention-demanding grindiness that drove me back to RS3, and on descriptions and advice I've seen from other people as well.
So that you do not have to buy both A membership fee pays to get a profile for both games. After about 10 hours on both matches you are going to have and you can move from there.
I've played games alot, I am ex comp on RS3 (not been comp since 120 slayer update), I then switched to OSRS as I got tired on RS3, there was not too much for me to perform after comp without getting very burnt out for trimming etc. Now I am currently trying to max my OSRS accounts and just began a HCIM OSRS on both sides and actually enjoy it, OSRS feels so much more rewarding to me personally without the MTX and DXP weekends (weeks now it sounds!). However, both games are great for different reasons. RS3 is much more engaging and has much more enjoyable pvm content and combat system - better for brand new players, and OSRS is a lengthier grind but feels much more rewarding - and better for original/nostalgic gamers.
I am considering checking out of the new articles and again attempting to play with RS3. Both are very good! I prefer osrs,but I think best website to buy osrs gold is a much better match with more to perform rather than grinding (that is the fun of osrs) try out both man! Hell,I believed classic was good when they brought it back a few years back:P I've been playing for like 13 years so osrs is more what I expect from runescape,but that by no way makes RS3 a lousy match or RuneScape not worth checking out,you may like RS3 alot better!
