Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.
Currently playing :Grand Fantasia(yet again...)
Pre EOC you had to kill thousands of mobs to level at higher levels. Some people were put of by that, but you could flick on prayer and afk-ish train.
EOC you still have to kill thousands of mobs for that level, but you can't afk it. You have to spam abilities and it is mindlessly spamming. Think maplestory (pre big bang) and then remove the AOE grind.
Since the brothers who created it (Andrew and Paul gower) sold their shares and left, it has gone downhill.
An AFK System would make the game dead anyway. See Kitsu Saga and Angels Online.
YOU COULD 'AFK'. Say you had a slayer task, you could turn on protection prayer use prayer pots and kill 150+mobs while watching videos/movies. You would switch back every now and again.
You cant do that anymore with the evolution of combat, because you need to spam skills.
What I'm trying to say is the grind is still there, but you can afk watch movies/videos like before. You now have to spam abilities while grinding combat skills and when a skill in the 90s take a good few hours to level ( some skills take even more) it gets tedious. Now do that for 25+ skills...yea

It isn't dead, but it is a ghost town compared to what it once was.
RuneScape wasn't primarily about leveling, for me at least.
I do stuff to earn $$+gear and level up in the process.
The only skill that I truly despise. Hate more than anything else in game is... agility.
It's mindlessly running in a circle but you need to pay attention to actually click the obstacles.
Unless that has changed. I hate it so much I haven't checked.
