Map Key Comments
Mapkey6.gif
Map key covered bed spots and cook shops. Interestingly enough, the map key had been converted to be vertical.
Mapkey5.gif
Map key that was placed as a result of the web page redesign. The intent was to show the map key when the player hovered over "Key" so the compact map key was placed.
Mapkey4.gif
Map key that covered almost every marker RSC would ever get. Followed the map revisions until the world manual webpage got redesigned.
Mapkey3.gif
Map key covering revisions of the world map until Pay-to-play.
Mapkey2.gif
Map key released along with the Varrock Bank world map update and kept when Asgarnia opened. However, on that map update all space was taken and followed a map key update.
Mapkey init.gif
First map key placed 20 markers. With the addition of the Varrock Bank it soon became expanded on the next world map revision.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Wilderness was not included on any official world map during RuneScape Classic's lifespan, as a philosophy to always keep the Wilderness mysterious.
    • The only exception to this was between the revision of 15 August 2001 and before the revision of 25 March 2002, where the first 5 levels of the Wilderness were shown.
  • The location of Barbarian Outpost changes in RuneScape 2, as Witchaven replaces the area east of Ardougne.
  • The Kharidian Desert, Digsite, Shilo Village + Khazari Jungle, Gu'Tanoth, Observatory, and the Sinclair Mansion areas were never revealed on the official Classic map.
    • This was either since the regions were recent from March 2003 or they were released after the mentioned date.
