It is better to play RS than WoW
As for the gameplay itself, it is all about how you choose to do it, you can play it repetitive or you can do mini games ect to train levels fast now. You can find many guides on site which teach you how to earn rs gold, buy useful armors and level fast.
it does give a great variety of ways to train each skill, and it also gives great variety in what you choose to do in the game at all.
Gameplay can be dull if you choose to make it so, it has different speeds depending on your play style and your willingness to learn other ways. As for Strategy, that is left up to the players. This can be a very strategic game if you choose to play that way, but you must be willing to learn it. This is actually a very good strategy game in most aspects, you just have to be able to utilize it properly. WOW IMHO is a much easier game to learn without the difficulty and effort required from runescape. If you want and easy game, you choose WOW, if you want a pain in the ass choose runescape.I think it is much cheap to buy Runescape gold than that of WoW. LOL
