Official Map key history[edit | edit source]
For more detail on the icons, see RuneScape Classic Map/Icons.
|First map key placed 20 markers. With the addition of the Varrock Bank it soon became expanded on the next world map revision.|
|Map key released along with the Varrock Bank in world map update and kept when Asgarnia opened. However, on that map update all space was taken and followed a map key update.|
|Map key covering revisions of the world map until Pay-to-play.|
|Map key that covered almost every marker RSC would ever get. Followed the map revisions until the world manual webpage got redesigned.|
|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.|
|Map key that for once covered bed spots and cook shops. Interestingly enough the map key had been converted to be vertical.|
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.
