So my mind blew up today when I discovered Runescape memes. I don’t know why I never thought that any existed, but I’m pretty mad at how much time I’ve wasted looking at other memes. Some were funny and some were very cool, so I thought I’d share a few that I saw today.
We all know about the random event where a troll named Flippa appears and offers the chance to play pinball. However Runescape’s version of pinball isn’t what you would normally think it is. Her famous line, “You like hitting things?” Is perfect for when she appears during combat. I laughed pretty hard at this one. Plus, random events always show up at either the best time or worst time. There’s never been an even middle in my experience.
The caption that was under this when I saw it on Facebook was, “I don’t know who this kid is, but keep preaching!” For those who don’t know what “bots” are, they’re a program where your avatar can play the game without you having to hit any buttons. I laughed at this because I remember when I would take tests in school and put random stuff down when I didn’t know the answer. There is always a huge amount of bots chopping down all the yew trees, fishing, spinning bow strings, or doing some other skill that interferes with what we real players are doing.
This meme had me rolling. The funny thing about old school Runescape is that you had the option to change your face features, but the graphics were so bad that you couldn’t tell the difference.
I just want to throw it out there that I absolutely hated this quest. Whoever wrote the quest was not a hero. They were somebody that thought it’d be funny to tick people off. It took me seven hours to complete Mourning’s End Part 2. Most of that time I was trying to cross an agility obstacle on a wall and kept failing. The thing that made me mad was that you need level 59 agility and mine was level 60. I expected to fall a few times, but not thirty in one go. Another player told me he had 56 agility and used potions to boost his level. He only fell twice. I thought I was going to lose my mind.
I laughed at this one because of how true it is. When I was in middle school my motto was “School, Runescape, repeat.” I also laugh because woodcutting (and fletching) were my favorite skills when I played in middle school.
I wanted to add this one because of how cool this is. I think one day when I graduate college I’m going to try to make a cape for what I major in. (Although it’d be cool if I could make a real life quest cape). I wonder when he plans on trimming it.
