The achievement banner is an item that can be reclaimed for free from Diango. It can be planted on the ground, similar to a Dominion marker, after which it can be read to display the player's statistics. It also periodically announces messages related to the player who placed it. The banner will stay in place for five minutes before disappearing. It remains in the backpack after placing it, similar to a clan vexillum. The banner remains placed down even if it is destroyed, moved very far away or if the player logs out or hops to a different world.

The messages that the banner speaks are in this order: the player's name, motto, total quest points, combat level, and total experience. The player can customise the banner's colour and motto. Changing the motto only takes effect once the banner is replaced.

Currently the only way of "muting" someone's banner is to add that person to your ignore list.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The achievement banner was the first physical item available from Solomon's General Store.
  • There used to be no way for players to ignore the banner's messages, a feature commonly criticised in-game by players. In response to player complaints, Jagex lowered the rate at which the messages appeared, and it was also later forbidden from bank areas and Pest Control. Now, adding a player to your ignore list also ignores the banner's messages.
  • A player may have their phrase set to "Runescape Classic veteran" even if they are not a veteran of RuneScape Classic.
  • The phrase "I'd do anything for XP, but I won't do that" is a reference to the song I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) by Meat Loaf.
