A Cursor in RuneScape, if turned on in the Graphics options menu, are by default a simple silver-coloured mouse pointer. However, when hovering certain options (such as eating food) in the game, a "bubble" appears over the cursor, inside which is an image that shows what action will be performed if the user were to click on that option.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, the Twirl emote was called Spin, and hovering a mouse over it caused the crafting cursor to appear, due to the similarity of name to Spinning wool in crafting. Because of this, Jagex renamed the emote Twirl.
  • When picking a noted item from ground, the cursor will show "Misc" icon. However, when picking an unnoted item from ground it shows its own icon. This might be a glitch.
The previous appearance of several cursors.
  • In a hidden update on 2 November 2010, the Woodcutting, Mining, Smithing, Crafting, Beacon/Pot Boiler (Fire), and Churning (Cooking) cursors received graphical updates.
  • The new firemaking cursor is missing a pixel at its tip, making it seem more rounded than the other cursors.
  • The Wind Rush spell does not have a cursor, unlike other combat spells.
The previous appearance of the default cursor.
  • The cursor was changed when the new surface graphics were released (i.e., the more metallic borders on the minimap) to a metallic silver colour.
  • The Charge Earth Orb cursor also appears when you kick the Large gnomeball.
