Dialogue for Giles (Grand Exchange)
Grand Exchange[edit | edit source]
- Giles: Hello, [madam/sir]. My name is Giles. Would you like to learn about bank notes?
- Giles: Very good, [madam/sir]. Bank notes are pieces of paper that represent an item that can be bought or sold.
- For example, this on the left is an actual cabbage. You can eat a cabbage. But this is not a cabbage - it is a bank note of a cabbage. You cannot eat this.
- Giles: You can withdraw many items from your own bank in note form, so long as that item can be traded and does not normally stack. To do so, click in the bank note toggle button and then withdraw your items as normal.
- This is what the bank note toggle button looks like. It's at the bottom centre of the bank interface.
- Giles: Conversely, you can move any bank notes from your inventory back into your bank. The simple act of doing so will store the actual item in your bank.
- Player: Okay, so bank notes are just representations of objects?
- Giles: Indeed! Now, these 'noted' version of items cannot be used as could the item itself be - they are, after all, just pieces of paper.
- Player: So what are bank notes good for, then?
- Giles: Mostly for moving items around in bulk. You see, with some items, you are only able to carry as many as will fit in your inventory - for example, you can typically only carry twenty-eight logs, fish or pieces of ore at a time. But bank notes stack, so you are able to carry hundreds, thousands or even millions of the same item at once, and all taking up just one space in your inventory. Bank notes can be traded with other adventurers or sold on the Grand Exchange; moved back and forth between your inventory and bank as you see fit; or even just dropped if you're clearing your bank of junk. Even some monsters are known to drop certain items in bank note form.
- Player: Anything else I should know?
- Giles: Just one more point - because noted items hold the same value as the items they represent, you will find that you can trade them for certain goods or services. For example, farming patch gardeners will accept crop- tending payments in the form of bank notes, and you can use noted ore to load the smelter in the Artisan's Workshop in Falador. You can even cast the Low and High-Level Alchemy spells on bank notes and you'll create the same amount of coins as you'd have got from casting the spell on the item itself!
- Wow, they sound pretty useful. Thanks for the info!
- Giles: You are most welcome, [madam/sir]. Good day to you.
- Giles: Very good, [madam/sir].
