| On June 16 Monday, you can get into the Legacy Mode Beta.
The Legacy Mode Beta is a way of playing the modern game with a traditional look and feel. You don’t need to learn the new combat system. It is optional for you can switch on or off, so you can choose when you use it.
˛ Traditional Runescape combat, no abilities.
˛ Interfaces styled from the pre-RS3, both resizable and fixed.
˛ Old-style minimap icons.
˛ Life points back to a max of 900.
What else, there are a lot of other smaller tweaks to help give that traditional gameplay feel.
Independent of Legacy Mode, here are some global changes to combat to make improvements, especially in PvP. The belows will also be available:
v Reinstated “138” combat formula, tweaked to give melee, ranged and magic equal contribution.
v Special attacks on weapons that had them before.
v Critical hit chance will be replaced by strength bonuses which give higher max hits.
v Overall balancing changes: more of your life points will come from stats rather than armor, and the penalties and bonuses across the combat triangle will be slightly relaxed, and the damage from abilities has been tweaked to even out imbalances.
Once the Legacy Mode has hit beta, the RS team have taken on players’ feedback, they will run a poll to determine whether it should be added.
The beta is also filled with new content: special attacks, the combat formula and balancing refinements.It is worth a try.
Remember that the Legacy Mode Beta will launch on June 16, keep an eye on it.
