Why Menaphos is the most important Runescape update in four yearsWhy Menaphos is the most important Runescape update in four years

Not the best update ever, but not the worst. I was expecting more, but hey, this is the first official expansion to RS. They have room to improve. I loved the story content, the graphical update of the desert (they widened the River Elid finally; we need that for all rivers in the game) and the city itself, as well as the fact that it's a nice skilling hub for mid-range players (Prifddinas is still the better hub for higher-level players), but the faction system restricts players from playing the content they want. Instead of pacing the player as I think they were trying to do, it merely limits the player in a frustrating way.

I've seen a lot of updates in my 13 years of playing RS, and there have been worse ones. However, they can do better and I hope they take player feedback into account for the next expansion in September.

6/10 from me.

Is it worth subscribing to Runescape?
Yes, I've loved most the time I've played and although I've been forced to do content I dislike, generally the reward after is worth it.

The most recent update Menaphos, is nothing to be proud of though, it's pathetic and is not an example of how good the game can be.

Menaphos wasn't the best, but it certainly wasn't pathetic. They can do better but the quest content and city itself are really good. The grind is what bothers me.

Have you bought anything in Runescape? How happy were you with your purchase?
Yes I have, I've never not been given what I was promised. I dislike the gambling aspect, however it is profitable and that's all the new owners care about.

Technically the gambling is 110% optional and is only technically gambling. Treasure Hunter is free unless you want to get more chances to try for a certain prize. No different than a carnival game, really.

Runescape review snippet Is it worth subscribing to Runescape?
Yes in both meanings of "subscribe". Subscribe, as in, following its progress, yes, because it's a game that evolves weekly. Subscribe, as in paying the subscription-based members' game, yes: the subscription is affordable compared to most MMOs and literally unlocks everything except for the few cosmetic things on the cash shop (which are also usually fairly-priced). All expansions and content updates are included with subscription. If you want to subscribe long-term, it's best to wait until the end of the year when they offer the Premier Club packages of 3, 6 and 12-month membership deals with exclusive bonuses.
