Isolation of worlds[edit | edit source]

For the most part, events that occur in one world will not affect any other RuneScape world. For example, buying an item in a shop will only decrease the inventory for the shop in that world. Shop inventory, character respawns, item respawns, and resource regeneration (e.g. ores, trees) are all managed individually for each server. Additionally, players (along with chat messages) contained in one world will not be visible to players in another world.

World hopping[edit | edit source]

Main article: World switching

Because each world has its own shop inventory, players will often change worlds rapidly to buy from one store many different times. Also, players often switch worlds to find more favourable conditions (e.g. more populated) for minigames, player killing or trading. This technique is known as world hopping.

Interaction between worlds[edit | edit source]

The only possible ways of interaction between RuneScape worlds is private chat using the Friends List or through Clan Chat.

Persistence of character state[edit | edit source]

When a user logs off of a world, all settings particular to that character are saved to the player's account profile in a global database. Therefore, when logging into a different world, the character's skills, inventory, etc. will be restored to the same state, regardless of which server the character last logged onto.

Themed servers/worlds[edit | edit source]

In August 2007, Jagex added a new column to the world select screen highlighting those worlds with associated activities, especially those team-based events like Trouble Brewing, to make it easier to find people with similar ideas.

In the update of July 5 2018, Jagex removed the themes of several worlds where the theme was unused or no longer necessary. This was only a text change in the world selection screen, with no impact on the actual worlds.

Skill total worlds[edit | edit source]

Skill total worlds are worlds that are locked to accounts that do not meet the required Total level to enter. Free-to-play skill total worlds calculate total levels from free-to-play skills alone and do not acknowledge members skills, meaning a players require a cumulative total of 508 or 758 in free-to-play skills to enter those worlds.

Player killing[edit | edit source]

  • United Kingdom flag.png 308 — Wilderness PK - Free
  • United Kingdom flag.png 316 — Wilderness PK - Free
  • United Kingdom flag.png 365 — High Risk World
  • United States flag.png 369 — Wilderness PK - members
  • Australia flag.png 392 — PVP World

On these worlds, players are prevented from teleporting for a few seconds after using a special attack in PvP combat on PvP or Bounty Hunter worlds. This is done to prevent players from using their special attack on a player and immediately teleporting away without consequence. Players are also prevented from teleporting while their special attack bar is activated on these worlds.

Some PvP worlds are affected by the PvP world rotation, changing which worlds are considered PvP worlds in two week intervals. This is to allow people across different continents to participate with fairer lag. When the rotating worlds are not PvP-oriented, they act as regular unthemed worlds.

Rotation A[edit | edit source]

This rotation is currently inactive; they act as regular unthemed worlds.

Rotation B[edit | edit source]

This rotation is currently active and will change to A in 9 days.

High-risk worlds[edit | edit source]

High Risk worlds (currently World 65 and PVP World 37) are worlds where the Protect Item prayer is disabled. Whilst on these servers, Protect Item is inactive, and if you die while skulled, you will lose ALL your items. Otherwise, if not skulled, you will get to keep three items per the Items Kept on Death system. Going into these worlds can be a risky, but good way to make money if you have a high Combat level with good armour and weapons and are proficient in player-versus-player combat. It is strongly recommended that you only take items that you are willing to lose! With the Protect Item prayer being disabled, caution is to be taken into great consideration throughout. Also, note that World 65 is a "safe" world unless you go into the Wilderness as it is not a PvP world.

Upon killing a skulled opponent, you will always get the items they were wearing and carrying, unless the item is (or was) untradeable, in which case will usually turn into a stack of gold coins according to its value. There are currently two high-risk worlds—these are worlds 37, which is a dangerous PVP world, and 65 (non-PvP) for Pay-to-Play (members).

Warning[edit | edit source]

Confirmation when selecting a High Risk world using the in-game World Switcher.

A warning is shown on attempting to log-in to a high-risk server from the log-in screen. If using the World Switcher instead, a confirmation will appear. Upon logging into a PvP world, a second notification in the form of a message in red will appear in your chatbox informing you that players may attack you.
