Disk of returning detail.png

The disk of returning is an item obtained by beginning a midsummer ritual during midsummer events.

Activating it requires the player to be inside the Dwarven Mine, and when activated the player teleports into the Blackhole, where Thordur resides. To leave, simply activate the disk again. This will cause players to re-appear in the Dwarven Mine, next to Boot and the Blackhole sign in the north-western corner of the mine. This means it could conceivably be used to quickly travel from the southeastern part of the mine to the north-western part. This can be useful for Free-to-play Ultimate Ironmen to train their smithing with Superheat Item in the mines, by accessing the anvils next to the respawn location after leaving the Blackhole.

Attempting to drop it while inside the Blackhole will result in a confirmation message asking "Really drop your Disk of Returning?". Answering "Yes, something cool might happen." will give the message "That was disappointing". Occasionally when confirming, though, the chatbox messages states "Something cool happens." and the player performs the dance and clap emotes. This interaction is a reference to scams that used to exist in the original RuneScape Classic period of the blackhole. At the time, players could visit the black hole and use their disk of returning to go out, similar to how this works currently. Other players would then tell players that "something interesting would happen" if they dropped their disk of returning, causing the players to get stuck in the hole, which resulted in significant numbers of players to get stuck in the hole.

Note: You can still get out of both versions of the black hole after dropping the disk of returning, either by talking to Thordur and asking how to get out, or by exiting through the Light in the blacker blackhole. Leaving the black hole will cause any dropped items that are still on the floor to be deleted, however.
