A banker works in a bank where players can safely store coins and items. Players can use coins on bankers to receive platinum tokens at a static rate of 1,000 coins per token. The bankers can also sell up to 360 bank spaces to the player in sets of 40 at a time, each set increasing in price as the player buys more spaces.

The bankers look different at various banks. Most of them are human, but those in Zanaris are fairies, the ones in Keldagrim are dwarves, and in Port Phasmatys, they are ghost bankers. Those in Lletya are elves; bankers found within the gnomish empire are gnomes; those in Dorgesh-Kaan are cave goblins, and the ones in Mor Ul Rek are TzHaar-Ket. They are not directly part of any quests. Players can speak to a banker either by clicking the banker or by clicking on the bank booth.

However, it is not necessary to speak to a banker to use the bank. Players can right-click the banker and select "Bank Banker" to access the bank interface directly, or left-click the counter to access their bank.

If the player only wants to deposit, they may look for the cylindrical bank deposit box. This can only be used to deposit items, in some areas, such as Port Sarim, it is the only option for banking.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The bankers in the Draynor Village robbery recording have 15-25 Hitpoints.
  • The Lumbridge bank on the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US] is run by the Bank Tutor.
  • Normal bankers can be interacted with from two squares away, instead of the usual one for NPCs. Presumably, this is to allow players to access them when there is a bank booth occupying the square directly in between the player and the banker. This principle can be seen in with the bankers in Shilo Village, who can be interacted with from two squares away despite the lack of any bank booth.
  • The bankers in Ver Sinhaza have the same dialogue options as the rest of the bankers, but will respond rudely to the player.
