The RuneScape Wiki is a wiki based entirely on the MMORPG game RuneScape and its many features. There are currently 45,984 articles and 100,573 files on the RuneScape Wiki, with 16,904,397 edits made to 526,800 pages in total. The wiki currently has 473 active users and 44 administrators.

Overview

Started on 8 April 2005 by Merovingian, the RuneScape Wiki's goal is to remain a vast, knowledgeable source for all things in RuneScape. As the site is a wiki, anybody can edit it, and all are encouraged to do so.

The RuneScape Wiki aims to be a competitor to all major RuneScape fansites. Guides to new quests or holiday events, for example, can be made in under an hour, far ahead of other fansites. With more contributors, this goal can be easily achieved.

This wiki has grown quickly, gaining editors on a daily basis. It contains a guide to every quest and treasure trail, and roughly 46,000 articles about items, locations, monsters and more.
