The purpose is that in many ways a number of the skills became worthless after you attained a certain level though I shall concede Jagex made some type of attempt to change this over the years with new content. The idea was to make them fun buy RuneScape gold or for there to be a point. Tracking: a lot of this content was also pointless or downright dumb! Oops! So much for change. In any case, just because there's new content does not mean it'll be fun or worthwhile in even a small step. It also may only be installed for uber quick leveling up so that each of the crybabies will be pacified. Think Divination skill here... as well as the main mini-game created for fast leveling. All it was there to do was to allow individuals to achieve a 99 ASAP. I must ask the question... what was the point? Was there a point? Not actually... and people wonder why so many gamers hang and wish for the day when Jagex would knock away the shenanigans and go back to RS ahead of the quacked era started... which was right around the time of Construction. The game was actually FUN back then aside from cheaters using bots.
To finish up, I'll confess I haven't been on RS because 2012 when my account had been hacked. I dropped about 1.5 billion in money and items... never got back anything nor was my account restored. I advised Jagex give me what I got or you lost my cash for more members perform forever... they never said a peep via email so that was that. I finished my membership out time, converted to F2P for a short time then discovered another sport to spend my cash on. I did find out exactly what happened to my account however... it was the great Yahoo hack of a few years back - that's how the hackers obtained my info.
Not one of us understood for a long time - and a few people went overboard checking our systems for malware never to find any. Of course there was not... that the hackers had gained more than a billion Yahoo account passwords. They did not have to hack any further. All they had to do is log on to any provided Yahoo account and check for evidence of an RS account and take advantage of it if something useful was found. That's EXACTLY the way I lost almost everything I'd taken years to earn... and it's why Jagex lost a loyal customer. NO. It wasn't... but the least they could have achieved was restore my account as it wasn't my fault either. They all had to do was restore my accounts... OSRS gold that is all I asked for. Hell, I even assisted in turning in the accounts of one of the jackasses that did it - the little bastard had the gall to brag about it in front of me at the Grand Exchange the next day (definitely using a throw away account) but I did my part by simply reporting the entire dialog a page at a time. End result? They could not even return an email.
