Runescape Vs World of Warcraft

World of warcraft is exactly the same as Runescape but the only things that are different is the price :

Runescape costs $7.95 (USD) per month by credit card (although if you subscribe for a longer period of time, it's less).

On world of warcraft you have to pay 14.99 -you don't get to play for free you also have to pay!

NOTE: The member Prices for Runscape and World of Warcraft keep changing- Click on the Discussion area for current information about the 2 games: Personally, I like World of Warcraft, but it has its pros and cons. World of Warcraft has much better graphics, constant changes (patches and expansions), minimal game limitations, less rules and hackers, tons of different goals [acheivents], the challenging game-play, and the tens of millions of people playing. The bad things are slow download, lag on poor computers [the best possible to me is 200 fps, thw worst I've seen is 5] the profanity, and the addicting nature [bad thing? I don't know], and the $15 fee. All in all it's an even match. To sum it up, World of Warcraft is for people 11 and up due to the profanity and the game-play, and is for people with some time on their hands [even with that it's still fun]. Runescape is mostly for people with a poor computer and under 11. Personally, I like World of Warcraft, but it has its pros and cons.

WOW is by far a more refined game and has much better mechanics compared to Runescape. WOW also has a much richer history and a wider fan base. Even if it is 15 dollars a month it is worth it because of the wide range of skills, items and races available. Runescape pigeonholes players into playing one race with marginal customization at best and very limited weapon types and design. WOW also features a much better grouping system as well as a very diverse number of dungeons, each with their own specialized loot tables, unique history and lore and several challenging, but rewarding, boss fights. Runescape has a very limited and rudimentary graphics engine as well as poor animation for characters, while WOW features a fairly advanced and stylized graphics engine that is constantly being improved upon. Another thing WOW has that runescape is lacking, is several expansions that expand both on the lore of WOW and the playable areas, while runescape has very limited playing area.

All in all, WOW delivers much more than Runescape and makes the $15 monthly fee worth every penny.
