I chanced upon this site through a Google search involving runescape and it seemed like it had people who could empathize with my predicament so I thought I'd ask a question which has been haunting ,me for a fair while.
Runescape was the one gaming love of my life. I don't do games like Assasin's Creed and Batman either. I played it a fair bit - when I say a fair bit, I mean dividing my sleep into 4 parts in tune with my runescape farming patterns - in 8th, 9th and 10th grade, at the expense of getting a root/laid, might I add. I quit soon to concentrate on more important things in life such as sex, KFC and drugs and somehow still got into law school from the time left out of those three prime activities. I tried to get back into it but did not find the motivation because they have OP'd the equipment to a ridiculous extent now, the economy is inflated to no end and most of my 'friends' have also left. To contextualize, I last seriously played RS about five years ago.
What I enjoyed most about the game was the boss-hunting. I particularly remember spending most of my waking hours doing multiple trips to Saradomin's dungeon in GWD and range-solo'ing, running from wall-to-wall taking her down one shot at a time and trying to do a perfect run - i.e. not getting hit even once and gaining three 'hilts' worth several million in the process. They've nerfed the room now to one involving no skill and all equipment and those millions are worth little now due to inflation but that's neither here nor there.
Now my question for you folks is which MMO should I start playing if what I want is the same thrill - with better graphics etc obviously - of repeatedly hunting down high level monsters using strategy and having a chance of gaining game-breaking loot?
The answer to that question will determine whether I play GW2, WoW or Lotro.
Thank you in advance and a very happy new year.
