The wealth evaluator is a system that calculates a player's overall wealth. It is free to use for all players. The wealth evaluator interface can be accessed from the inventory interface by clicking the wealth evaluator icon (Wealth evaluator button.png).

The wealth evaluator became free for all players on 26 April 2021. Previously, the wealth evaluator was purchasable and allowed for unlimited use for 2 weeks (14 days after midnight (UTC) on the day of activation). This duration could be extended for each wealth evaluator bought for up to 6 months. It could be permanently unlocked for the cost of 480 RuneCoins in members and 533 RuneCoins in free-to-play or 3 bonds (213,949,749 coins).

Unlike other price checkers, it is not limited by 32-bit integers (2,147,483,647). It is likely that the checker uses a long data type, making the maximum wealth value 263-1 (9,223,372,036,854,775,807).

The player's wealth in the following areas is calculated:

The following areas contribute towards the total wealth but are not counted in any of the above categories:

Valuation anomalies[edit | edit source]

Several items display unexpected value in the wealth evaluator:

  • Resource crates - valued at the "value" of a large herblore crate, with contents worth between 1,164,896 coins and 1,144,416 coins is reckoned as 2,000 coins.
  • Portable skilling packs are valued at 1 coins even though they contain multiple of any given type of portable skilling station, for example portable crafters, valued at 29,165 coins each.
  • A zaryte bow that is not fully charged is valued at 900,000 coins rather than the GE price (currently 12,838,469 coins) less the cost of recharging.
  • Superior scrimshaws are valued at 100,000 coins, regardless of the value of the corresponding scrimshaw.
  • All 3 versions of the TokHaar-Kal are valued at 6,000,000 coins in the death interface, but only 100,000 coins in the wealth evaluator.
  • The superior Leviathan ring is valued at 90,000 coins in the death interface value, but 100,000 coins in the wealth evaluator.
  • The dragon defender is valued at 90,000 coins in the death interface value, but only 1 coins in the wealth evaluator.
  • A Santa hat with beard is valued at only 160 coins untradable wealth, despite being readily converted into a Santa hat currently valued at 2,147,479,992 coins in the GE.
  • The value of untradeable potions according to the wealth evaluator (when the option "include untradeable wealth" is activated) is extremely low. For example, a flask with 3 sips of overload is valued at 220 coins, even though the ingredients to make it cost over 50,000 coins. The situation is similar for other untradeable potions, such as super antifire and extreme potions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The wealth evaluator's inventory icon shows that it is an abacus.
  • The evaluator does not let muted players announce their wealth in Friends Chats or Clan Chats, although it does in Local Chat.
  • Broadcasting wealth locally uses the Quick Chat icon (Quick chat button.png), but the phrase cannot be found on Quick Chat when searched.
  • Before the evaluator became free for all players, permanently unlocking the evaluator gave two messages: "You have purchased a permanent unlock for the wealth evaluator." and "You have permanently unlocked the wealth evaluator."
  • Before the evaluator became free for all players, when there was less than 24 hours remaining, the border around the icon turned red.
