This update would not necessarily increase the RS gold fun, but it would reduce the time it takes to finish. You've already stated that the game's gameplay is simple enough. It's only the time required. If you try to make it more difficult, but go faster, you'll be able to play better.
To be honest, yes I don't like the grind either, which Jagex will be releasing with EoC to (hopefully) fix it. Personally, I am okay with EoC or no EoC. I'm just hoping cheap RuneScape gold to see them reduce the speed of swifts, spellcasters and the goliaths. GF everyone who got a cmaul, yeah?
