Nobody is talking generally OSRS is slower in vs OSRS - clearly about xp prices. But suitable PVM is more complicated in RS3 at elevated levels, and that's the type of problem people are talking about RS gold. I can't readily afk even a t70 boss with no auras. When I wanted to begin learning the mid-range supervisors like Vindy, I'd have to experience a great deal of food and research in order to even moderately take action on revo++ without learning manual skill rotations to increase my DPS.
Anything higher than this is going to require a great deal of effort since not only would I want to learn boss mechanisms, but I'd essentially be asked to find full manual rotations for every battle style I would like to use, how to switch gear effectively to take advantage of perks and specials, and so on. Taking the old school strategy of obtaining BiS gear as"winning", OSRS is definitely a lot more pay-to-win than RS3. For gamers with pay-for-BiS-gear-to-win in your mind, OSRS costs money that is real.
What swap prices? You mean RS3 gp's unofficial exchange rate? OSRS gold and silver RS3 gp are two completely different currencies. RS3 is in deflation, not inflation. That is why Jmod stated we do not need GE Tax like OSRS. OSRS is currently in inflation, which is why they included Duel Arena Tax, and Mod Ash proposed GE Tax. They included the RS3 Death, aimed to carry gp.
Inflation on big ticket items like partyhats is not because of inflation in RS and totally artificial. A lot sunk out of cash. Invention eliminated a great deal. High alchemy is the largest source of money in RuneScape winrsgold. Together with the Smithing rework, we are hitting this more with providing more incentive to turn items into XP rather than alching them."
