To promote the 2017 event, the Runefest shield was given to players who redeemed the code runefest17 using Diango's right-click "redeem-code" feature. The code was intended to be revealed for RuneFest attendees and those tuning in to the all-day stream on on 23 September 2017. However, it was obtained a day earlier than intended due to players successfully guessing the code.

A home teleport animation override could be unlocked by redeeming the code osrsrf2014 from Diango. The teleport features a cow, and can be toggled by right clicking the home teleport in the spellbook.
