Borosouro (often referred to as Boro for short) is a relatively new member of the Questing Clan of RuneScape, having joined on Halloween of 2017. The name "Borosouro" was made up on a whim, being derived from the ancient Ouroboros symbol which depicts a serpent eating its own tail. On occasion, he will use other usernames also starting with "Boro", with previous names including "Borokalla" and "Borosnowy".

Adventures in Runescape

Early Years

Borosouro first started playing RuneScape in the summer of 2008, shortly after the release of RuneScape HD. As he was young at the time, he was very nooby and did not progress much in the game. He played in a somewhat on-and-off manner from then on, taking long breaks and creating a new account after each break. (Some of those breaks included playing games on FunOrb, which was popular among RuneScape players back then.) He liked to try to explore the game for himself and did not like using guides, which prevented him from getting very far on each account. Nonetheless, on one of his accounts, he managed to complete the One Small Favour quest with heavy assistance from the former QuestHelp system, all before the release of lodestones! However, over the years his interest in RuneScape would decline as he discovered other games, and his last account stopped playing in early 2012.

The Return

Although Borosouro thought he had moved past RuneScape after he had quit, he continued to have dreams about his fond memories of RuneScape for many years to come. In December of 2016, the weight of those memories had made its toll, and he decided to revisit RuneScape again for nostalgia's sake. This was when the account "Borosouro" was made. He originally planned to play just for a few months before going back to other games, but he quickly became much more engaged than expected, and made progress at a much faster rate than any of his previous accounts. He had loads of fun discovering everything that was new since he had last played, and was eager to try and complete as much of the game as he could. Less than a year after he had started playing, his enthusiasm for completing quests led him to Clan Quest when he was searching for a new clan. By then, he had earned 249 quest points and had a total level of 2077.

Joining the clan further encouraged Borosouro to continue his questing adventure, and he completed many important quests as a member of Clan Quest, including While Guthix Sleeps, The World Wakes, and Plague's End. He also was a regular participant in clan events, including the now-defunct C.O.R.E. events. November 2018 was a particularly significant month for Borosouro, as he managed to hit the 250m XP milestone on the 17th, just before the beginning of Double XP Weekend. During the weekend, he decided he would finish his remaining quests instead of skilling, and he completed 3 quests during the weekend, finishing with Sliske's Endgame. The following Monday came with the release of the 400th quest point, The Needle Skips, which he completed on release day. He finally claimed his quest point cape on the 23rd, which was broadcast to the whole clan.

On 14 January 2019, Borosouro was appointed to the Guild Council of RS3.

Post-Quest Point Cape Era

The Road to Max Cape

Once Borosouro had completed all of the quests in RuneScape, he then set his mind to achieving the next big goal, obtaining a max cape. However, he wanted to make the event of maxing truly special, so he decided to aim for the lofty goal of obtaining all 99s in a single spectacular max party! Borosouro knew that such a feat would require careful planning to avoid getting any 99s early, so he made sure not to train any single skill too much at any point. He also carefully rationed experience rewards from daily keys and in-game sources to correct imbalances in his current stat makeup. Despite the restrictions that this goal put upon him, he continued to accomplish many milestones during this period, including making progress towards the Master Quest Cape and doing enough Treasure Trails to obtain the globetrotter outfit.

By May of 2019, Borosouro had obtained enough experience to finish his goal of maxing all skills at once. However, by then he had noticed that another clan member, Di_anima, was also going for a goal of obtaining many 99s at once. He decided that it would be more exciting to have both of them obtain max in the same party, so he waited for her to work on her skills until they were both ready. During this period, Borosouro was not able to participate in most game activities, and only logged on to do daily activities such as vis wax and player-owned ports. Since he still wanted to play RuneScape but did not want to pay for an alternate account, he decided to try out Old School RuneScape in the meantime. He chose to play Ironman mode, and although he was not very good at the game and did not get far, he did enjoy experiencing the other side of the RuneScape community. Finally, on October 5th 2019, both him and Di_anima were ready to max, and they held a max party during the early hours of RuneFest. Borosouro maxed all 27 skills and Di_anima maxed her 21 remaining skills, for a total of 48 99s in a span of roughly 20 minutes.

Current Endeavors

Now that he has claimed the max cape, Borosouro is free to pursue all of the game areas he has yet to explore. Currently, he plans on increasing his RuneScore rank and learning how to start bossing. For long-term goals, he has thought of obtaining all non-virtual 120s, the Completionist Cape, Trim, and the Master Quest Cape all at once, although that might be a bit much even for him! In the meantime, he will continue to be an active participant in the Clan Quest community, and he eagerly looks forward to the updates that 2020 and beyond hold.

Other Games

Currently Borosouro does not play many other video games, as most of his free time is occupied with RuneScape. However, he enjoys difficult puzzle games, with his favorite being Stephen's Sausage Roll. He has even experimented with making his own puzzles in the past.

Trivia

  • Borosouro is currently a follower of Saradomin, although he is sympathetic to other gods also.
  • Borosouro's favorite minigame is Conquest.
  • Borosouro's favorite quest is Ritual of the Mahjarrat.
  • Borosouro's favorite quest NPC is Cyrisus.
  • Borosouro completed the entire Elemental Workshop series without a guide. (Except for the very beginning of IV, where he got confused by how to make the key to quest area. But that wasn't part of the main set of puzzles, so he arbitrarily excludes that.)
  • Borosouro currently has the best player-owned house in the entirety of Clan Quest. The only one who has tried to contest this title is Questcaping, but an impartial judge determined Borosouro's house to be better. (Yes, this actually happened!)
  • Borosouro still holds out hope that Rite of Passage will be released some day.
  • Borosouro likes pointless trivia too much.
