This is what time and energy played can get you, note it only took me a month to get what you see here and I have been playing since vanilla aka the first world of warcraft. This is a level 85 Blood elf paladin in retribution gear, I have a subscription to runescape as well and in my opinion I think wow is my favorite of the 2 accounts mainly because of the multitude of things I can do in game vs what I can do in runescape, yes wow is $15 a month but in everything you do you must pay to play or so the saying goes so why complain about the price when you can have fun. As for those that say this game is violent you are highly mistaken there is not even a drop of blood in this game that I have yet encountered so to say it is violent is untrue also on that note that doesn't make runescape any better because you still kill things on your quests so either way you look at it both games are essentially "violent" but yet I stand with wow being my preferred game of choice.

This is what I say. WoW is waaayyyy better than Runescape. Runescape is good for like 8 year olds. But WoW is for a better experience. If you got an apple mac and play WoW it is AMAZING. Runescape sucks on graphics, and play. The size of one tiny town on Wow is the size of the whole of runescape. DONT DOWNLOAD WOW OF THE INTERNET, buy the discs instead, install on an iMac took me 4hours. My friend plays Runescape hes turned UBER UBER fat and has no proper mates anymore. FOR THE ALLIANCE :)

I have to say Runescape is my preference. For people that say "Oh the graphics suck WOW has amazing graphics... blablabla", the Runescape graphics DO suck, but they get the job done. The download of Java took like 5 minutes for me to download, then I was ready to go. A friend of mine tried to download WoW- took her 13 hours. What's up with that? 
Runescape's also less expensive. If you want to be a member... all you have to do is pay 5 dollars. I think anyone could handle that. $30 for two months? ... no.
Also, Runescape is easier to play, and you don't have to make like 5 characters for different classes. All you need is one to get the job done. And I've heard people kill themselves over WoW... What the hell is up with that? O_o

Yeah. I prefer Runescape. Sorry, WoWers.

Downloading from Blizzard has always been slow. For all of their games. Perhaps you should try to find an off site download.

Personally I would go with runescape I used to play but my account has probably been deleted now.... I have seen allot of my buddies get addicted to world of war craft and one of them got bad eyesight from looking at the screen to much and the other got sick from eating to much junk.. But I would rather ride a bicycle or build something or go for a walk than play a game. Yes its addicting but there are people that are getting filthy rich off of you sitting in front of your computer. I don't like when people get rich of of me (IM REALLY CHEAP) . But to sum it all up you don't accomplish anything. When you build a table you can look back and say i built that 20 years from now. but when your playing a game you cant say Oh I got to level 450 in wow twenty years ago.(450 might be on the high end im just guessing( I don't Play it)) I guess you could but you don't have anything to show for it.. And you just get frustrated when your playing games.

"DEFEND THE ALLIANCE!" How about... No? Overall, let me start off with saying I am a Roleplayer, and am incredibly addicted to Ultima Online, even though it is an old school MMORPG. Lets face it. Runescape sucks. The graphics leave much to be desired, and while WoW may have the graphics and the nifty interface, spending hours at the start to level up doing quest after quest and getting basically nowhere is rediculous. Rappelz has a totally free for life contract. It's kept running by people buying items with real money that they don't want to get in game. I think that's a fair trade for such a neat game. Runescape, you get what, one free character? I don't know. It's been awhile since I played. Rappelz gives you five characters. I'm a supporter of Rappelz. It has an incredible likeness to WoW, questing and etc, but it has that addictingness that WoW didn't have. WoW was just to.....repetitive.

What are the hardware requirements for Rapelz? You can make as many Runescape characters as you want.

Copied directly from the site: Before Install Rappelz 1. You must install Direct-X 9.0c before install Rappelz. 2. If re-installed Rappelz, you must uninstall the previous version and delete the Nflavor folder in your Program files before installation. 3. There must be more than 1GB of space on your hard drive. Minimum Requirements CPU VGA RAM Direct-X Pentium-III 800MHz 128 MB 3D accelerator VGA card 512 MB 9.0c Pentium-IV 1.5GHz GeForce2 MX / Radeon 7000 512 MB 9.0c Recommended Requirements CPU VGA RAM Direct-X Pentium-IV 2.0GHz 128 MB 3D accelerator 1024 MB 9.0c If you can run wow, you can run this.

wows better..,why? simple. runescape graphics = crap. runescape gameplay= crap .

wow u have 10 million other people to interact with
wow u have so much explorable area that its almost impossible not to get lost
wow u have so much different things you can do, you can grind, farm, quest, do instances, raids, play the auction house, and you can pvp, and do battlegrounds.

and so what about the patches. all that means is that there improving the game. and 15 bucks a month is about 4 coffees, get over it.....

right now wow is celebrating valentines day. i still have my snowballs from christmas in my bank along with some halloween treats i got from trick-or-treating. the new years in game fireworks were awsome, i got so drunk off the free beer. i cant wait until the next beerfest (its a dwarf thing lol)

and if you say wow is violent...it isnt. the most violent part is when people die and go "rahhh!!!" and fall down. there isnt even blood.

oh and i forgot. if you have a friend that owns the game discs, you can borrow the discs from him/her. you dont need the discs to play the game. also i think you can download wow off their website (big download tho)

I've played both, and even without a membership Runescape owns WoW in my opinion. However if your a serious gamer (which I'm not) WoW might be more to your liking. runescape is less violent (family friendly), and is free (unless you want to get a membership, which I'll probobly do eventually), WoW is violent and costly, it's p to the individual. Oh yah, my people are Leauweag (lvl 35 mele miner) and Gwenwhyvara (mage who bums cash of off Leauweag)
