Ok looking to make a list of the oldest SURVIVING clans in RuneScape. Off the top of my head I know these 3:

The Sabres (Pre-Runescape)
"THE" Clan (Pre-Runescape)
Blacknights - Jan 2001
RuneScape Dinasty - Jan/Feb 2001
Gladz - Feb 2001
Wilderness Guardians - Dec 2003

Go! :D

Didn't RSD close and was remade? I'm not sure they were around continuously since 2001.

Cor is pretty old (I want to say during Classic?), but I don't have an exact year. EoS has been open since November 2004 I believe, so a fairly long time, but still on the new side compared to those clans.

RsD has its roots in RSC but they did close for a year or two so I'm not sure if they should count?

Clans that I see today that I saw back in the day ('04, when I started clanning) -- The Sabres, 'The', Gladz, Jagz, The Mighty Red Dragons (other TA, I think they're still alive), BK, Corruption, TRWF, EoS, RsD, Lithuanian Forces (which I wouldn't really consider a "country clan" cause it has its roots in times where no such things existed), Exercitum, Dragonwood, Moriquendi, Wilderness Guardians... I think I got them all..

Edit: wait... looking at runehead, it seems as though TMRD has a "final list" and may actually be dead?

The Sabres don't really count :| if they did, they would be the oldest

I'd be interested to know why you don't think they count.

I didn't think they officially closed but instead went community for a bit.

By all means ask many of the older members of clanning. Sabres have split before as well as having closed due to issues within the clan. When they split it was a break up of the original clan and it was only really after that it was claimed to still be Sabres (probably to hold onto the title). I am speaking for what I have been told of course by multiple sources who were active during this time. They will claim they have not but MANY members from multiple old-school clans can vouch for different circumstances. Sure they are the oldest clan to have ever been involved with Runescape however I believe it would be safe to say that the oldest ACTIVE clan would belong to someone else.

Heck THE has been in the top 5 longer than most clans have been alive. It is only in recent years that Gladz BK and THE dropped out of that rank. I dont believe anyone can question the longevity of any of those 3 though. They all have stayed active and pretty much have not fallen below at least top 30 overall.

:thumbup:

Those three clans pretty much define 'old school' when it comes to clanning. No one can compete with them in that regard.

I would say RsD too maybe, but the fact is that they did disband for a year or two, and the clan itself today seems like completely new blood.. do they even have any old members left?
