For general speedrunning information please see the Speedrunning guide section.

Category Guide[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

This route requires you to enable Authenticator so you can claim the 2000 coins from the first level of the Stronghold of Security. Here is a quick guide on how to do that. If this is too annoying, you can alternatively grab 8 pairs of Steel platelegs from the wilderness at the start of the run and sell them at the Lumbridge General store.

  • Navigate to the Create Your Account page
  • Enter an actual email address for your login name. You do need to verify your email.
    • An easy way to do this for multiple accounts while using only one gmail account is to put a +# somewhere in the address.
    • Any email of the format <name>+<anything>@gmail.com will send the email to <name>@gmail.com
    • So if your email is [email protected], you can create an account with the name [email protected] or [email protected] and the confirmation email will arrive at your [email protected] inbox.
  • Fill out the rest of your account details and press Play Now.
  • Wait for the verification email to arrive, then click to verify your email. Do this before logging in to the website.
  • Click 'Account' on runescape.com or 'Account Settings' on oldschool.runescape.com and log in to the new account.

  • Set up your Authenticator by scanning the code with an authenticator app and entering the code it gives you on the website.
