If you yearn for the way that RuneScape
used to play before its shiny makeover, Jagex
both hears and feels you. That's why the studio has prepared a new option called "legacy mode
" that will begin testing on June 16th.
Legacy mode allows players to access traditional combat, the pre-RuneScape 3
interface, the old minimap icons, and a 990 hard cap on life points. This mode can be freely toggled on and off at will. Jagex will see how legacy mode tests and will poll players as to whether or not they want it brought into the live game.
The team's also preparing a patch to improve combat and better balance characters' stats, penalties, and bonuses.
