The Titles interface
Titles icon.png

Titles are honorifics, accolades, ranks, and other descriptions that modify a player's name as either a prefix or a suffix. Titles will appear with a player's name in public chat, when the player is right-clicked, on the forums, and on the player's adventurer's log. Titles are accessed and changed through the Customisation Interface under the "Titles" tab. Titles may be obtained in game or from Solomon's General Store. A number of titles do not appear in the interface until they are unlocked. The first titles in game were the Mobilising Armies military ranks, released on 8 July 2009.

October 2018 titles bug[edit | edit source]

On 3 October 2018 a coldfix was applied that entirely disabled player titles in RuneScape. This was due to a game-breaking bug relating to player customisation, wherein accounts could become corrupted and unplayable.[1] This issue persisted for several weeks, in which time several teams were involved in trying to fix the bug.[2] Titles were disabled into November, due to the complexity of the bug and its fix.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to Mod Jack, the cost of adding new titles is not insignificant despite appearing simple.[4]
  • Titles are limited to 255 characters, and each colour requires 12 characters.
  • Prior to removal of Mobilising Armies, if a player came near the Mobilising Armies Command Centre, their title would be replaced by their Mobilising Armies rank prefix, if they had one activated. Previously, if they had no rank prefix activated, their title would vanish. Upon leaving the area, their title would not return, and would have to be reactivated. Since then, if no Mobilising Armies title was activated, the existing title would stay with the character.
  • If one had a title that was dependent on gender, there was a glitch where the player's title (for example, the title Lord/Lady) would not change to the players current gender; the player's title would stay the same until log out. This has since been fixed. After the update on 7 December 2020, a toggle between masculine and feminine titles can be found in the Customisations interface.
  • There was a glitch that allowed players to use titles they had not yet unlocked by selecting it, selecting a title they had unlocked, and quickly clicking the "Activate" button. This has since been fixed.
  • When right clicking a player, titles that are displayed before a player's name will cause their name to be grey.
  • Four titles were added to the game on 30 July 2018, but were not made available to the players. These titles are The Benevolent, The Donor, The Giving, and The Supporter. The Benevolent was ultimately released in October 2022, and the Giving in May 2023.
  • A player's title would change to the corresponding gender when doing Fremennik Sagas.
  • Previously, putting on and taking off any piece of the Darkmeyer outfit would cause any active title to disappear; it could be fixed by repeating the process. This has since been fixed.
