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
  • In 30 January 2001 guards started being placed in Varrock to withdraw money more safely. The concept of guards would apply to Varrock and future banks, just before the Wilderness got implemented.
  • In 12 June 2001 it became possible to deposit 1000 coins at a time at the bank.
  • In 26 July 2001, 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.
  • In 21 February 2002, members had available 2x48 bank pages to be able to store up to 96 distinct items.
  • In 7 May 2003, members had available 4x48 bank pages, being able to store up to 192 distinct items. This would set the cap in RuneScape Classic's history.
  • In the re-opening of RuneScape Classics of 2009, "withdraw-x" and "deposit-x" options were added to the bank's interface, making withdrawing and depositing items faster.
