Loyalty points.png

The Members Loyalty Programme was released on 28 June 2011. It was first announced in the Behind the Scenes of June 2011.[1] Loyalty Points are an additional reward for being a Member of RuneScape. Players who had pending or existing subscriptions would receive Loyalty Points for their remaining days of membership but would not earn these points for the days before the actual update. On the release date of the Loyalty Programme, players were given a discount on most items in the Loyalty Programme Shop for a limited amount of time.[2]

Loyalty Points can be spent on a various range of rewards, including emotes, costumes, and items for the Aura slot.[1] All rewards are simply cosmetic, with the exception of the auras, which enhance gameplay in many different aspects, and the wicked pouch, which is equipped in the ammunition slot and stores rune energy that can be used in place of runes for spellcasting. Concurrent members accumulate points at a higher rate than players who only subscribe occasionally, so the most loyal players can earn their rewards faster.[2][3] Items, emotes, costumes, colour changes, and titles can be bought from Solomon's General Store, Xuan east of the Warriors' Guild in Burthorpe or in Varrock Square, Dilwyn in the Tower of Voices within the Elven City of Prifddinas, or Wafa in the centre of the Merchant district in Menaphos.

In 2011, there was a 12 Days of Christmas event between 25 December 2011 and 5 January 2012, during which players were able to earn 500 Loyalty Points on each day that they logged into a members' world for a total of 6,000 points on each of the 12 days.

The shop was updated on 3 September 2013 and merged with Solomon's General Store, allowing some items from both stores to be purchased with the other's currency. The gazes and clothing were changed into cosmetic overrides. The only items that could be purchased from Xuan were auras, outfits, and the ability to re-colour items.

The shop was updated again on 29 March 2016, with plans to make items cost only RuneCoins or Loyalty Points rather than both starting from 3 May 2016.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Loyalty Points accrue more quickly the longer a player has membership. Loyalty points are split up into two categories: base points and bonus points, which are calculated separately.

  • Base points are determined by the cumulative membership time, maxing out after 1 year of cumulative membership (at 15,000 points per month).
  • Bonus points are determined by the consecutive membership time, maxing out after 1 year of consecutive membership (at 15,000 points per month). In addition, after the first 12 months of consecutive membership there is an additional 5,000 bonus points every additional 6 months.

Thus the maximum possible rate is 30,000 points per month, with a bonus of 5,000 points every 6 months. This is an average of 30,833 points per month. It is also possible to gain extra points by buying Premier Club membership and during some promotional events.

When a player's membership lapses, there is a seven-day grace period during which they can subscribe again and maintain the same bonus points rate. After the grace period is over, the rate will drop to the amount from two months ago.

  1. ^ This is the amount earned by new members if they retain their subscription continuously. If their subscription lapses during their first year (for longer than the grace period), when they restart they can expect loyalty points between the new and max base point columns.
  2. ^ This is the amount earned by previous members who reached 15,000 base points before lapsing membership. Upon returning they will earn 15,000 a month base with a lowered streak.

Auras[edit | edit source]

Main article: Auras

Auras improve gameplay in many different ways, including effects with Combat, Skills, and other benefits, while a few auras provide unique cosmetic looks. They all have a particle effect that glows when the aura is active. This particle effect does not show on a Free-to-play server. Most combat auras can only be used in PvM and would not work in PvP combat. With the exception of cosmetic auras, such as the Oddball aura and gazes, and the Desert pantheon aura, only one aura can be used at once.

Auras are equipped in the Aura slot and are activated by clicking Activate aura. All of them have an activation time, which shows how long they last, and a cooldown time, which shows how long it takes to be used again. This is clock time and still counts down even when logged out. If an activated aura is unequipped, it cannot be used it again until it is recharged. If an aura is lost, it can be reclaimed by Xuan, Dilwyn, or Wafa fully charged if it wasn't on cooldown. If an aura is lost while it is activated, it will go on cooldown when it is reclaimed.

In order to purchase a higher tier aura, all lower tier versions of that aura must be bought in order first. The auras can be bought from Xuan, Dilwyn, or Wafa in-game or from Solomon's General Store under the Auras section. To purchase all of the Members Loyalty Programme auras, it would cost the player 4,320,000 loyalty points.

Cosmetic auras[edit | edit source]

Unlike most auras, cosmetic auras only affect the appearance of a player. There is also no activation or cooldown time. There are 8 gaze auras that can be bought from Solomon's General Store under the Wardrobe section in the Effects subsection. They can be applied in the Customisation interface to make the player's eyes glow in various colours. To purchase all of the Members Loyalty Programme gazes, it would cost the player 144,000 loyalty points.

Emotes[edit | edit source]

There are 38 emotes that can be bought from Solomon's General Store under the Emotes section. They are used in the same way that all other emotes are used. To purchase all of the Members Loyalty Programme emotes, it would cost the player 223,782 loyalty points.

They can be worn as in-game items if claimed from Xuan, Dilwyn, or Wafa, or they can be worn as a cosmetic override in the Customisation interface. If an outfit is lost, it can be reclaimed by Xuan, Dilwyn, or Wafa. The outfits are for cosmetic appearance. Only the Dervish Outfit provides benefits; it provides protection from desert heat. To purchase all of the Members Loyalty Programme outfits, it would cost the player 44,000 loyalty points.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This message is obtained once an account is registered and logging in after registering.
  • The next time users log in after they have registered to the Members Loyalty Programme, a box is displayed, asking the players if they would like to view the shop, giving the option of being teleported to the shop in Burthorpe or Varrock centre.
  • On 6 September 2011, the mercenary leader, mercenary mage, mercenary ranger, and mercenary warrior were placed in north of Falador wearing items from the loyalty programme.
  • For the first two weeks after the release of the Members Loyalty Programme, the prices for almost everything in the rewards shop were decreased. The prices of all auras except for Jack of trades were reduced to 400 loyalty points. The price of the Cat Fight emote was reduced to 100 loyalty points, and the prices of the Talk to the Hand, Shake Hands, and High Five emotes were reduced to 400 loyalty points. The price of the Dervish outfit was reduced to 100 loyalty points, and the prices of all the other outfits were reduced to 400 loyalty points.

  • It will take 5,502,646 points to unlock everything in the shop, assuming rewards aren't purchased when they are discounted. It would take a total of 185 months or 15.4 years to unlock everything in the shop, assuming membership is kept running the entire time and no additional points are received from promotional events. It would take a total of 132 months or 11 years to unlock everything in the shop, assuming the player purchases the Gold Premier Club yearly membership, which includes 150,000 loyalty points.
  • The only non-English title currently available in Xuan's shop is "Wunderkind", which translates to "Child Prodigy" in German.
  • The title Duderino could be a reference to the movie "The Big Lebowski", in which Jeff Bridges' character, Jeff Lebowski AKA The Dude, lists various things to call him, relating to the word "dude", including "duderino". It could also be a reference to the Simpsons. The character Ned Flanders says words that end in "idly" doodly" "rino" etc.
