My current game is an RQ6 game.
I'm finding a few frustrations translating the Gloranthan sources (that are all MRQ2 or earlier) to RQ6, and if you are running a specifically Gloranthan game, and want all the support materials that implies, I'd actually recommend you just grab Legends/MRQ2 for the moment. It will hopefully change fairly soon, but it isn't quite there yet.
If you are running a non-Glorantha game, though - RQ6 is the best version of RQ I've played, IMO. I've been running it for a while, and combat is both fun and playable, magic is playable and flexible. It is a great game, flexible and fun rules. If you are wavering, grab it.
