'Old School RuneScape' Legend Locks His Character At A Swamp, Pushes The Game On Its Limits
YouTuber and Twitch streamer Settled rose to RS gold prominence as an Old School RuneScape content founder by documenting every step in finishing the match most masochistic obstacle: Maxing out all the game's 23 abilities on an Ultimate Ironman character. Ultimate Ironman characters are prohibited from trading and using in-game banks. This usually means that these players can't hoard the materials used to train particular abilities beyond what they are able to hold in 28 stock spaces- turning an already arduous process into an unbelievable slog. Furthermore, all of these substances must be collected personally since Ironman characters can't trade with other players.
After a 7,000-hour journey to maximal his first Ultimate Ironman personality, Settled chose to"up the ante," in his own words, by locking a brand new Ultimate Ironman character in the comparatively small and empty swamp area of RuneScape's massive world map: Morytania. Since Morytania is a comparatively high-level place, even the start levels of every ability have proven to be an unbelievable grind.
By way of example, the only way for Settled to earn the initial 15 Agility levels was to attempt to jump across a broken bridge. With a low tolerance level, there was small chance of him crossing the bridge, therefore neglecting was actually the only option. Struggling to cross the bridge resulted in a gain of just 2 XP as well as taking a decent amount of damage. Since there's no other method for Swampletics to earn agility encounter with a minimal level, the only option was to allow him to neglect at crossing the bridge over and over again. As he took damage each time he failed, he had to interrupt his coaching by gathering food to heal himself. Reaching Agility level 15 required Settled 11 hourswhereas a typical player would attain this milestone in under an hour.
Settled also spent days researching the in-game mechanics of Morytania's Temple Trekking mini-game in order to efficiently earn"Tomes of Experience". These tomes offer experience to a random skill, making them exceptionally wasteful to train a specific skill, but they're the only way he can slowly progress his Slayer level within Morytania. While this might not seem like engaging material, Swampletics fans can't get enough of those creative and incredible lengths Settled goes to achieve even the most mundane objectives. These low-level goals are not normally worth celebrating, but when perfecting a comparatively unpopular mini-game is exactly what it requires for Swampletics to succeed, Settled will do it and his fans will watch.
With so many restrictions put on his accounts, Settled is compelling Old School RuneScape to its absolute limits, along with the game's community is rallying around this unbelievable (and frankly absurd) project.
