Date locked[edit source]

It is date locked.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.84.78.172 (talk) on 6 September 2016 at 13:19.

Was available to find during 8th of september 2016.188.84.78.172 07:36, September 8, 2016 (UTC)

Fount it myself just now as well. — Heaven Sent (talk) 11:22, September 8, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry I'm not use to this talk but I thought I would let it be known that I wasn't able to get this bottle 10/7/2016 Runescape date but I was able to get it on 10/8/2016. My guess you can get it one the 8th of the month. Katryna 00:52, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

Cheers! Looks like we're making headway on the unlock requirements. — Heaven Sent (talk) 01:17, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

IP 36.229.34.64 made an edit to the article speculating "you need to visit 10 uncharted isles." Leaving that information here in case it is relevant. — Heaven Sent (talk) 10:45, October 8, 2016 (UTC)

I only visited maybe 3 or 4 uncharted isles, and I could find all bottles today. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:57, October 8, 2016 (UTC)
It was actually IP 68.80.165.222 who claimed this, twice... Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 01:12, October 9, 2016 (UTC)
so I have to wait a whole month to get this one? that is some grade A jagex bullshit.-- Seren symbol.pngHeavyoak Talk Zaros symbol.png 13:43, October 10, 2016 (UTC)
Not necessarely, it could be that it's visible more often, but I've only seen reports with this date, so... Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 16:45, October 10, 2016 (UTC)

Found it Oct 11 2016 00:30 UTC - user: val-i-um95.109.106.166 00:37, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

See, perhaps it's a cycle of 3 days? Or perhaps 2 days visible, 2 days not invisible. Who knows. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 00:42, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
Several of us in our clan just claimed it between 2:00 and 2:40 on Oct 17, 2016 (UTC), so this seems to confirm the every 3 day cycle, as this is 9 days from Oct 8 and 6 days from Oct 11.Skiffygrrl (talk) 02:43, October 17, 2016 (UTC)
I got it yesterday though (16 October 2016). I'm beginning tae query that datelocked theory What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 03:05, October 17, 2016 (UTC)
I just got it on the 17th. Beware UTC midnight? --Saftzie (talk) 09:03, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

A friend found it a few minutes ago. It seems to confirm the 3-days cycle. Master quest cape.png Arckange Talk 12:46, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

Found it today 23rd Oct, think this confirms the 3 day cycle. — Sabrerattle (talk) 23:13, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

Found 26th October - in line with 3 day theory.

Can confirm, also got it on 26th October AlexanderCastle (talk) 21:48, October 26, 2016 (UTC)

Spirit charms[edit source]

"It is thought that you receive this message when you check the last 2 numbers of the current runedate in your ports journal by reading it and looking at the top and then adding 1 dragon charm to whatever the number is. Then proceed to enter the spirit realm which uses one charm thus equalling the current runedate in your journal."

Per User:Reptar74 on the mainpage. Moving it here as was worded as speculation still. Seems unlikely as I entered the Spirit Realm with maybe 3 charms in my inventory on Runedate xx10.x-ish. — Heaven Sent (talk) 13:24, October 11, 2016 (UTC)

I took 2 charms with me iirc. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 13:31, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
I can (kind of) confirm the quote. A friend of mine got the bottle at 5340.83 Runedate with 84 dragon charms in his backpack. I don't have enough charms atm but I will try myself tomorrow morning. Arcky (talk) 20:08, October 11, 2016 (UTC)
EDIT:I think it has nothing to do with Spirit charms. It's just date locked and appear every 3 days. I found it on October, 17th in the evening (game time). Arcky (talk) 14:05, October 21, 2016 (UTC)
Agreed, you just need x amount of spirit charms to stay in the realm, not any specific amount for seeing the bottle... :S Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:14, October 21, 2016 (UTC)

Tested this method at runedate 5341.74, no luck. Will test again at 5341.8X to see if an eight there works. (also will test at gametime 08:00 and 08:08, the time of User:Reptar74's edits) 104.207.136.72 18:27, October 12, 2016 (UTC)

tested at 5341.81, no joy. (but hey, remembered i had an account this time)Dojorune (talk) 19:45, October 12, 2016 (UTC)
Took 7 charms on 5345.48, found the bottle. Funnily enough, I also found the Springbreak bottle minutes afore this ane, meaning I'd found all of the original castaways minus Manti afore I found this What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 11:46, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
