The bank after the rework.

The bank rework is an update first mentioned at RuneFest 2016.[1] It aims to improve several aspects of the bank such as adding placeholders, improving the search engine, and being more user friendly. The rework was delayed in 2018. A beta began on 31 July 2019. The rework went live on 30 September 2019.

History[edit | edit source]

The bank rework was first mentioned during the RuneScape Reveals panel at RuneFest 2016.[2]

On 9 December 2016, Jagex shared a design document[3] that outlined the changes that they had planned for the bank interface. The document outlined changes including adding new critical features, improving the usability of the bank, bringing the existing storage/retrieval features into one place, and improving the internal workings of the bank to make it easier to maintain and update.

On 8 January 2017, it was announced that the bank rework would be released during the second half of 2017.[4] However, on 25 October 2017, it was announced that the development of the rework was paused, due to developers working on RuneScape Mobile.[5]

On 17 February 2018, Mod Hunter released a bank rework taster which updated some bank scripts to allow some features of the rework to be added early, including rebindable preset buttons, faster loading of the manage presets window, access to Diango and player-owned house storage from the bank, and a new "clean-up" mode.

On 20 December 2018, it was stated that the project had been put on hold, [6] but resumption of development was later confirmed on 26 March 2019.[7]

On 16 May 2019, a dev blog was published confirming that the update is still coming and that a beta will take place at some point in Q3 2019.[8] On 4 June and 2 July, Mod Shauny showed off the bank rework during official livestreams.[9]

On 31 July 2019, a beta for the bank rework began, accessible to all players. The beta included the introduction of bank placeholders.[10]

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Bank placeholders - Allows players to save a placeholder for an item in their bank so that they can keep their bank organised with a specific layout.
  • Sorting options - Players can sort their bank by level required to make/wear/use items, Grand Exchange value, quantity, and more.[11]
  • Tab changes - By right clicking tab 1, tabs can now be on the left side of the interface rather than the top.[12] Players will be able to have up to 15 bank tabs instead of 9. Players will be able to give each tab an icon from a range of icons including skill icons, quest icon, clue scroll and coins and rename each tab.
  • Ninja fixes to bank presets. It will be possible to quick-load all presets from the main bank interface[13]: players will be able to reclick preset buttons to reset or save a preset.
  • A new section for bank options will be added to the gameplay options tab.[14]
  • Resizable interface - The bank interface can now be fully resized horizontally and vertically, including across monitors.
  • Add the Wise Old Man's bank cleanup ability as an option inside the bank and improving this service.
  • Add the ability to reclaim items from Diango via the bank.
  • Access to Player-owned house storage straight from the bank.[15]
  • Slightly increased number of bank spaces available for free players, and increase to 1320 spaces for members.
  • "Default number to move" - When activated, left-clicking an item will withdraw or deposit a set amount of it.
  • Integration of backpack, worn equipment, beast of burden inventory, and money pouch to the bank interface.
  • When the worn equipment interface is open, withdrawing an item will try to equip it.
  • The interface layout will slightly change, and it will be slightly more transparent.
  • When loading a preset with a potion, if the bank can't find a potion with the specified amount of doses, it will instead look for the same potion with a different dosage and load it instead.
  • Presets can now be edited via drag and drop from your current backpack or worn equipment.

We're currently not actively working on it and as of writing there are no concrete plans to do so. The bank rework would be a huge undertaking and is not a priority for us at this time."
