A player talking to a banker

A bank is a place where players can deposit their items for safe keeping. Items held in the inventory can be lost upon death, but items in a player's bank are always safe.

The RuneScape Classic bank is divided into 4 pages. Each page can contain 48 stacks of items, for 192 total in a player's bank.

Players first learn about how to use a bank on Tutorial Island, where a section of the tutorial is dedicated to walking a player through depositing and withdrawing items.

In RuneScape Classic, only one player can talk to a non-player character at a time. Because players must talk to a Banker to access their bank account, banking can be difficult in busier areas of RuneScape.

Note that unlike RuneScape 2, there is no bank at the top of Lumbridge Castle. There is also no option to protect a player's bank with a bank PIN.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Upon release in 23 January 2001 only coins could be banked through Banker's dialogue. Available interactions were withdraw, deposit and a check of your current balance.
  • On 30 January 2001 (update) guards were added to Varrock to protect patrons of the bank. The concept of guards would apply to Varrock and future banks, until the Wilderness was implemented.
  • On 12 June 2001 (update), it became possible to deposit 1000 coins at a time at the bank.
  • In a hidden update before 26 July 2001 an option to withdraw or deposit 2500 coins at a time was added.
  • On 26 July 2001 (update), banks were reworked to be able to store any item and not just coins. Users could store up to 48 distinct items with a maximum limit of 16 million items per stack.
  • On the release of pay-to-play on 27 February 2002, members were given an additional bank page.[1] Two bank pages held a capacity of up to 96 distinct items.
  • In a hidden update likely on 25 March 2002, members were given a third bank page.[2][3] Three bank pages held a capacity of up to 144 distinct items.
  • On 7 May 2003 (update), members were given a fourth bank page. Four bank pages held a capacity of up to 192 distinct items. This would be the final bank space expansion in RuneScape Classic.
  • For the re-opening of RuneScape Classic in 2009, "withdraw-x" and "deposit-x" options were added to the bank's interface, making withdrawing and depositing items faster.
