This article is about signposts in general. For the ones in Clan Citadels, see Signpost (Clan Citadels).

Signposts are scattered across several towns and cities and give directions to certain places, or give random statistics if read, depending on location. Statistic signposts were released by Jagex on 21 May, 2008, although direction signposts have been around since RuneScape Classic.

Signposts serve little purpose for more experienced players who know their way around Gielinor better and can use the world map efficiently.

Information signs[edit | edit source]

The information signs show various statistics when read. They reset when the server is rebooted.
