To turn Runescape into recognizable to everyone

Since don’t have any top-end training creatures in the game yet, players with a very high Combat level will find this 30 level range increased to 50, at least until we release some bigger training dungeons! You’ll still be able to train on creatures that are much less powerful than you, but training on things like rock crabs and cows will now only be effective at low levels, as it should be. We will be adding faster and more numerous spawn points all over the game to cope with the change. In PvP, changes are much more obvious: with the combat triangle reworked and rebalanced; a huge number of abilities to use; tactical decisions on when to use them; the Defense skill strengthened with heals, deflects and other cool features; and more life points to avoid instadeaths, it’s a very different experience, but that experience is far, far better than the one we have already live.

It’s about real skill and real tactics, and I am sure that our PVP community will have a great time mastering it, and finding new ways to use it that we hadn’t even considered. Be brave, but be traditional. We have a great game, and a great bunch of people that play it. That’s a huge number and while we want to make an exciting, interesting new Combat experience, we do not want to turn RuneScape into something that’s unrecognizable to everyone. Firstly, the new combat abilities are a development of the old special attack system. The main difference is that you now have a range of Basic attacks to help generate the adrenaline needed to use more powerful abilities, rather than simply waiting for a special attack bar to refill over time.

While you’ll kill quickly if you make use of the new mechanics, you’ll still accumulate adrenaline – and, as such, have access to Threshold and Ultimate abilities – if you prefer to just sit back and auto-attack as before. Likewise, despite the action bar being a big part of RuneScape in the future, we aren’t forcing anyone to interact with it. If you want to keep interacting with RuneScape as you did before, you can, and you won’t be penalised or handicapped by doing so, it’ll be possible to minimise the action bar if you want to keep your UI clear.
