The quest req[edit source]

According to Mod Nancy in the page 11 of the forum thread sticky about it in future updates forum, King's Ransom, as of now, is planned to be a requirement to do the Court Cases D&D. Proof about it is here. Quest point cape detail.png Brux Talk 18:43, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Kings ransom is needed because it introduces the courthouseQazwiz 12:35, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Title of the new D&D[edit source]

How do we know its going to be called "Court Cases"? Court Cases is the title of the blog, not the D&D itself. Mod Nancy never explicitly mentioned the title of the new D&D...   az talk   06:03, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

We're not sure, but we can rename the page after we know the real name --Zorak plorak 07:27, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Court Cases is officially the name given to the D/D, as evidenced by the news post on the day of release and the guide entry on it. --Jimfromtx 03:35, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Factual correction[edit source]

Incorrectly stated there would be 5 originally then 16 more added, however bts states 5 originally and 16 overall. DMalfoy 12:32, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

First person to finish[edit source]

How can you, say that a person finished the first case... I believe I finished the case before anyone... You cannot tell who finished the first case. Also, who cares? Create Pure5 10:13, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

It's just vandalism. Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 10:38, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, like those that posted simply "First page!" or "First post!" on the forum topic itself. --Jimfromtx 20:48, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Chance of getting court summon[edit source]

Well i wonder how rare the court summons are. Anyone got one already?

I pickpocketed now 10k loot from knights in ardnougne and nothing. Maybe we could make a list of what activite seems to have the highest chance of getting such a court summon

When it comes to pickpocketing ardy knights, great at 99 thieving since ardy cloak 3 with gloves of silence give you 100% success rate, I'd say they are uncommon/semi-rare or something. I got all 4 summons. They took me around 11k 6k 13k and 3k coins loot. This is about 1 in 165 chance. Lathow 17:08, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Just because some people have finished doesn't mean they are necessarily easy... Remember the people who got 2 draconic visages from their first few black dragon kills, or were done with champions' challenges on the day of release... I myself have spent the afternoon stealing from paladins and knights of Ardougne to no avail, and am now spending the evening killing off lessers - Nothing so far. Obsidian charm.png Magma2050 T C E Obsidian charm.png 18:06, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Addendum: I gave up on lessers and decided to mass-kill Hill Giants for a few hours and got all the summons available for now (one by one, doing the court cases between drops). Obsidian charm.png Magma2050 T C E Obsidian charm.png 19:15, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

FWIW I've gotten 3 of these things now (so 1 to go yet) from pickpocketing a Knight of Ardougne. Each time I've gotten one after I'd failed enough that he had beaten me down to less than 90 life points remaining. My Thieving level is 67, and the only gear I'm wearing is the Ardougne Cloak 2. I don't know if getting beaten to within an inch of death increases your chances, but it's been pretty consistent for me so far. At my failure rate and Constitution, it takes me maybe 10 minutes to get below 90 life points remaining, then - bingo! - I get a scroll. YMMV --Saftzie 08:56, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

Caskets are a GREAT way to get these- just buy them off the GE. I'm considering adding that to the page. Thoughts?LordAlchemist 01:27, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Is it possible do do the same court case multiple times?[edit source]

Well, is it? 173.24.223.159 19:55, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

As of right now, No. --Aquadraik 20:46, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

If a case does not go in your favor, can you try again without a summons, or do you have to get the summons again? --Jimfromtx 20:49, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

If you fail at a case. The jury will award you an Undecided verdict. The Judge will then proceed to explain that you need to make your case more clear and such. You will then be ported to the courtroom, with your case files and you can reenter and try again :). --Aquadraik 21:21, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

River Troll vs. The People (Prosecute) does not work[edit source]

I did every single thing it said to do, but it did not work. I tried again, but, again, it did not work. What's the right way to do it? LassKazeaze 00:23, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Umm... Nevermind. I made an error in the Court. Sorry... It is right. I'm very sorry. :'( LassKazeaze 00:51, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

spoiler[edit source]

Would it be better if the Court cases section is hidden with a spoiler warning?Sfza x99 12:05, June 10, 2010 (UTC)


I agree... the template for spoiler covers is {{C|"spoiled text"}} resulting with "spoiled text" then the user that wants a hint will be able to select the walk-through text one at a time when they need help without seeing all of it all at once --Qazwiz 12:44, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Hidden update???[edit source]

an off time update occured about 11:30am BST today i imediatly noticed that Firefox is no longer prevented from hiding the tab and navigational bars when in F11 fullscreen mode (allows tab navigation as long as runescape isn't in java fullscreen at the same time) this had been how it acted until either the pengy update or the Court case release in the last 24 hours


thus i thought it was just a technical update


BUT, I now am trying to start Court Cases and the clark wont givce me the time of day, claiming the court is closed today


DID JAGEX MAKE AN UNANNOUNCED CHANGE/FIX TO Court Cases????

Qazwiz 12:55, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

was checking for different quest requirment.... this is how clark acts when you don't have Kings Ransom RequirementQazwiz 18:08, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Creatures that drop court summons[edit source]

Just thought it might be worth starting a section where we can list and discuss creature types that do and do not drop scrolls without getting the article too messy. I know they said "Giants" drop, I can confirm that specifically Hill Giants do. Obsidian charm.png Magma2050 T C E Obsidian charm.png 20:43, June 10, 2010 (UTC)


Humble Pie[edit source]

This mentions humble pie as one of the rewards for completing Court Cases: As well as XP, some cases may reward you with a little something extra: expect to eat humble pie, try on some new wigs, and receive other such useful items. However, I have done all five cases and there is no sign of humble pie as a reward. What's going on? 173.24.223.159 00:27, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Really... "To eat humble pie, in common usage, is to apologize and face humiliation for a serious error. [1]" Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 00:30, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe they just forgot about it?--Agamemnus 05:28, June 12, 2010 (UTC)
No they did not, you have to do the Miss Schism court case to obtain it. Guthix symbol.png Bicko Blicko Friends.png 17:39, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Fortnightly Limit[edit source]

Just wondering if A) the first set of cases are done before the latest ones to be released, or if they're mixed up so you can get any of the total 16 at a time.

B) If the above isn't true, if the fortnightly limit is now set for the first five too.

Faintish 17:35, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

No they're mixed up. Guthix symbol.png Bicko Blicko Friends.png 17:39, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Hey guys.


Just got wizards vs barbarian, will post the reward.

Move Cases to a subpage[edit source]

Discussion moved to RuneScape:Requests for splitting/Court_Cases

Aftermath of the Great Reformatting[edit source]

Turns out that when the articles were split, some people started using Heading 2 at the top of the sub-articles, followed by Heading 3 and so on.

Trouble is the main article was already showing those subpages as Heading 3 and was expecting Heading 4 and higher only. REALLY messed up the contents at the top.

I've streamlined all the articles as follows:

  • Only 3 headings appear after each case in the following specific order, each set at the next header in the heirarchy (Header 4):
    • Crime Scene (If applicable)
    • Prosecution
    • Defence
  • The Defence Case Note and Defence reward pictures have been moved into each article's defence section. Same for prosecution. After all, each set of defence notes have a shield on, prosecution notes have a sword, and the rewards specifically note what xp type you just earned. They belong in the separate sections. Lists of people to talk to appear in the first line of each defence/prosecution section rather than their own section. All trivia appears in the trivia section of the main article, not the subpages.

This has de-cluttered the index a great deal and makes it much easier to follow.

What Happens If You Dismiss a Court Case?[edit source]

I've been doing the court cases since their release and hope to finish them all. However, as I was attempting to do the Miss Schism case, the guide was insufficient and I couldn't figure out how to win, so I spoke to the clerk and dismissed it so I could run off and get another summons. I was assuming I'd be able to get the Miss Schism summons again eventually, but this article suggests not... can anyone confirm or deny that once you cancel a case, it is lost forever? Doesn't seem fair to me, I'd be very upset if I'll now never be able to complete them for the full reward. Pet cat (purple) chathead.pngAhiaorinaTalk 08:06, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

I've accidentally dismissed a court case once (and was extremely annoyed at myself), and got it back some time later. So no, it's not lost forever. Leave me a message :) Annarelda Hiscores 02:32, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

Failivia[edit source]

The 3rd trivia stating about typo is fixed ages ago, yet it's not updated to trivia that there used to be typo, rather than there is. And also do note that the experience there stated is 'from 2,000xp to 20,000xp' now on.

Fixed. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 15:00, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Glitch[edit source]

I did ham vs cave goblin on 22nd and evil twin today. Theres supposed to be a two week gap right? http://services.runescape.com/m=adventurers-log/rssfeed?searchName=Min%A0level%A03 RO3 12:29, May 25, 2011 (UTC)

If you read the first paragraph of the Court Cases page, it explains why this can happen. The first one you did was from batch 2, the second was from batch 1. You may attempt a case from batch 1 at any time, but you may only attempt a case from batch 2 a couple of weeks after completing any case from batch 1 or 2.

How Can You Check What Court Cases You Have Completed?[edit source]

Title says it all. I have completed numerous court cases but I cant remember which ones and how many I have to go? Does anyone know how to check this? Talking to the guards in the court building and the clerk doesnt give me the answer and I cant seem to see any posters on the wall to observe.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 124.191.56.23 (talk) on 16:07, November 18, 2011.

Not sure but i think you can do the same court case ocer[edit source]

I complete batch 1 cases along long time ago and been working on batch 2. I was killing hill giants for a champion scroll and i got the drunken dwarf one. I know for a fact i have completed this case before. Something must of changed or something might of been reset.

Untitled[edit source]

this is a guide website so how about gee I dunno PROVIDING A GUIDE?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.115.56.122 (talk) on 17:25, September 20, 2014 (UTC).

A guide is available for every single court case. They are on separate sub pages, linked to in this article, in the "Cases" section. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 17:30, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Adding Transcripts[edit source]

I noticed that there are no transcripts for any of the court cases; I'd like to add them, and I've been trying to figure out how to do so. Quests have the source code {Hasdialogue|quest}, but court cases aren't quests. Is there another source code that'll replace the 'quest' with something else, like 'D&D'?

I would add transcripts to each individual court case, on a secondary page (ex: Mugger v. Roger Murray/Transcript), similar to how quests do it, unless advised otherwise.
