Untitled[edit source]

Would it be appropriate to add the state/ province or area (etc) that a city is in? I will only do the USA ones for an example.

  • Atlanta, Georgia, USA
  • Chicago, Illinois, USA
  • Dallas, Texas, USA
  • Detroit, Michigan, USA
  • Miami, Florida, USA
  • New York City, New York, USA
  • San Diego, California, USA
  • San Francisco, California, USA
  • San Jose, California, USA
  • Seattle, Washington, USA

Sydney is in New South Wales and London is in England. Aurora (talk)15:05, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Total number of worlds[edit source]

"There are currently 144 worlds"

But since some worlds like 49, 122, 123, etc aren't there anymore, should that be less than 144? Aurora (talk)15:06, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Redirects[edit source]

Err...wow Chia...but shouldn't a world have its own page if it has any unique features...? Like the missing worlds, and world 66 which has law running and world 16 which has air running. World 132 has the player-made Fletching guild in Yanille, and worlds 100 and 124 are really big on Pest Control. Not to mention worlds 1-5, especially worlds 1 and 2 - the god of all trading worlds. If a world has its own feature like that, just say something like:

World 2 is a server which is famous for the massive amount of trading which occurs there in eastern Falador. The World 2 Falador trading area is massive, covering the Falador east bank and the entirety of Falador park, with many commodities and popular armour and weapons each having unofficially designated spots to be traded! Because of the trading, World 2 is full 99% of the time, and is extremely difficult to get into.

What's wrong with something like that? A map of the World 2 trade area in Fally with the spots all labelled would be really cool, but I don't know how to make them, or know the spots well enough. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk07:04, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I got 1,000 mainspace. Yay. All worlds are the same, so none of them have "unique features". If you find that a world (like 16 and 66) needs to be aknowleged as a "unique" world, then you can just redirect it to Air Running, or World 2 to Falador (bad idea), or something like Bank or Bank sale, or something economic related.
I plan to have every world (except for 122 and 123) redirected. It's a POW for myself. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 07:27, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I voted for yes. The US does have a lot of servers. I think there should be more servers in Britain. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 00:20, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Update:22 New RuneScape Worlds[edit source]

Please revise this article based on this update: Update:22 New RuneScape Worlds. Thanks in advance.   az talk   02:24, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

German Language servers[edit source]

I thought that these servers were located in Helsinki and not in Germany. --156.34.70.108 04:23, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Locations[edit source]

I have re-written the locations section to include the amount of F2P and P2P worlds for each location, and I've added a little flag for each country ;-). Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 12:32, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

why is Spain not included?

Removal of Player Worlds[edit source]

This section is not needed because it has not been updated in 5 months, and most of its content is outlined in the Themed worlds section. Hardly any of the information contained within this part can be verified (for example the language specific worlds). What do you think? Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 06:12, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

You said "Most of its content". I think you should merge the information into the article, ignoring the information that is already available in the Themed worlds section, and obsolete entries such as "Trading" and "Wilderness PvP". Personally, I do not like to see any information "disappear" just like that. For example, World 60 is an unofficial world for Penguin Hide and Seek, but it's not mentioned. It needs to be updated, and cleaned-up. Not removed.   az talk   07:48, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Hmmm, I like it! I'll start drafting. =) Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 14:04, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

OK, new proposal - remove the entire Player World section, replacing it with a paragraph in Themed worlds describing them...

===Player worlds===
Certain worlds have become specialised by the player-base for particular activities, most commonly for socialisation with similar players which share common attributes like language, or to participate in events which require many people, such as parties and games.


Expand it if you want to. What do you think? Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 14:30, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

You're omitting the world "numbers" altogether? I prefer if we retained that info..   az talk   14:43, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
OK, even newer proposal, remove information crossed out HERE, replacing it with one paragraph in the Themed world section saying this...
===Player worlds===
Certain worlds have become specialised by the player-base for particular activities, usually for socialisation with similar players which share common attributes like language, or to participate in events which require many people, such as parties and games. These worlds are...

Much better, I think. I'll add-in a couple of worlds after you've done the changes to the article.   az talk   09:07, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Sure, add whatever you like. Magic potion (4).pngCFLM Talk # Sign 12:21, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

France?[edit source]

Notice there are french servers but they don't appear in green on the map? Luckytoilet 05:00, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Persistence of character state[edit source]

this section of the article may need redefining. The description of what happens when switching from members to free servers can be read in the wrong way.

Almost recent events[edit source]

Some of the oldest "recent" events date back to April 2008. Since it's two weeks and it's April 2009, wouldn't this need updating? And I think there have been more recent events too, just not written in there. dictature 13:43, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Server in India[edit source]

I just found out that now there's server in India. If you don't believe me, check RuneScapes worldlist!

--Penko 17:20, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for letting us know, Penko, I'll update the article accordingly. For anyone else - they're worlds 170 (P2P) and 171 (F2P). cflm (talk) 17:24, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Worlds 121-129[edit source]

Does anyone know what happened to worlds 121-129? World 127 was my home world and the only Maryland world. SamRosenfeld 12:03, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Dude, 127 is also my homeworld! Why's it offline? --Vandalism Sucks 05:44, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

World 1 - Trade[edit source]

The activity of world 1 is Trade, but what is the point of this? :S {{SUBST:VERV:Gebruiker:Cléo/Handtekening2}} 15:45, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

People go to world 1 to trade items that are too rare to trade easily on the GE, or for which the GE price doesn't reflect the actual value. Apologies if I misunderstood your question. Stewbasic 20:22, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

I can only see 1 Norwegian world on RS, but I think 63 is a Norwegian themed world.

Private servers?[edit source]

should we add some information about private servers?

No, those are completely different game, and not supported by Jagex. ~Kuma 11:54, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Worlds upgraded[edit source]

wolrds are being upgraded.

Hey all,

We will be temporarily shutting down worlds 11, 53, 80 and 92 in approximately 30 minutes to move these worlds onto a more powerful server.

Apologies for the inconvenience,
Mod Easty

Edit: 30 minutes after these worlds are migrated, we shall be doing the same to worlds: 68, 122, 124, 134


We have already migrated world 117 to a faster server.

We are however aware that this has not completely solved the problem with lag on the world, hence we are releasing efficiency improvements to the scripts as often as we can.

World 95[edit source]

Okay, World 95 was my homeworld, and now it's GONE. I've been looking all over for info, but I must just be stupid or something, cause I can't find it. My clan met on this world, and we were actually pretty famous on it until about a year ago. It was called the Training Squad, led by Cyberman220. If anyone can tell me what happend to this epic world, please tell me. (First post on the wiki) My sig is like this because I am also on Total Drama Wiki. Zombie Zeke Rules! ---> [[File:Freaked.gif]] 19:06, February 19, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, I couldn't find it on any of the other-language servers or on the British one. Perhaps it's been taken off to become a new language server? sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 19:12, February 19, 2011 (UTC)

Bum bum bum... maybe Jagex is making dutch servers? Or maybe it's just offline or used as a testing server.Defence-icon.png99 i fail Attack-icon.png 23:15, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, ok! thank you all for your effort, I'm glad I didn't just get a bunch of "hew carez newb!" posts. I did some research and it turns out, it IS some sort of foreign server now. Me and Cybes' kept making jokes about how our famousness crashed the world, and I even made a comic series based partially on that theory. :P Zombie Zeke Rules! ---> [[File:Freaked.gif]] 21:10, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

World 175 appeared as a US server on Tuesday 19th July, 2011. Did anyone find out why this server was released and then taken down the next day? Also did anyone take screenshots to show it existed(?), because I thought for sure it was going to just be another "hidden update" to the game that they added an extra world to the game during the week of the Cryptic Clue Fest III.

5 Free american servers???[edit source]

There are not 5 american free servers, its more like 30. Mojohaza1 16:38, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

World 113[edit source]

If you are an f2per like I am, then you might know that World 113 was the only Skill Total 1000+ world. Why would Jagex selfishly remove it? Come on. It's all we get away from may I say, 'noobs'. Can someone confirm or something? Press here for cookies TalkZaros symbol.png 22:53, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

Server List[edit source]

How in Runescape am I supposed to read that list of servers? It is so tiny.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 108.73.85.52 (talk) on 16:57, April 22 2012 (UTC).

Not sure if you're referring to the image or the text version. The image is 617 x 2241 pixels, so seems large enough to me. The text version is the same size as any other text on the wiki, so that can't be a problem either. Talk to meTHARKONMy adventurer's log 20:17, April 25, 2012 (UTC)

Texas?[edit source]

which worlds are in texas? Heavyoak 10:37, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

It only lists United States on the server list, so only Jagex knows which states they are in I guess. Talk to meTHARKONMy adventurer's log 20:31, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

World 178[edit source]

I noticed one of my friend is currently logged into a world listed as World 178 it's not listed it might be a beta world or a instance world not sure.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 210.50.30.132 (talk).

Beta world is 200, so they'll be in an instance. Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 23:39, July 29, 2015 (UTC)

Virtual Level/Skill Total[edit source]

Should it be noted whether or not your "Virtual Level" is adequate enough to enter a 'Skill Total' world? I actually don't know the answer to this. --Internetboxwiki (talk) 00:23, October 16, 2017 (UTC)

Virtual is not used for the entry to 'Skill Total' worlds, those worlds only check your actual levels, since virtual levelling is an optional function within the game. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 07:17, October 16, 2017 (UTC)
Sure, is this worthy content for the page? Internetboxwiki (talk) 21:45, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
Yes, it is, that's why I've added it to the page, that skill total restricted worlds require actual levels and that virtual levels don't count for them. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 22:37, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
