First and only player to cast monster examine on every NPC possible: Jard Y Dooku.

No longer holds, but I did meet my goal at one point before they added new NPCs. And I do mean every.

  • Never trust anyone. You are always alone, and betrayal is inevitable.
  • Nothing is safe from the jaws of the decompiler.

Pretty cool topic. Sometimes I miss the "old days" of RuneScape. That first picture of the RuneScape Homepage was pretty neat to see/remember. Also the old pictures of the Stats menu. I have a picture somewhere on this laptop of the Stats menu from when I got 100 Combat, ages ago.



Good work. :thumbsup:

The Old Nite?


You don't know who that is...? :shock:

I think he's pointing out that he isn't mentioned.

The one player that is the most amazing to me is bluerose13x, she ruled Runescape for a good amount of time, being the first 99 smither.

Of which, what happened to her? She is not on the high scores.

GWD BUGS (In order of discovery)

Zamorak Boss - K'ril Tsutsaroth
Discovered: First day
The first teams to enter the Zam boss's room were all quick to find out that the mage and range bodyguards did not attack players standing on the east wall
Posted Image
The yellow dot on the far right of the map (or to the west) is a stuck bodyguard

Bandos Boss - General Graardor
Discovered: At least second day
The original doors at GWD had the door attached to the BASE side, instead of the BOSS side, so that there was a small indent in the boss room. With general graardor, standing in the indent with graardor's bottom -left side two or three squares south of the indent would make his range attack null (would not hit at all - no damage splat), making it possible to solo him without threat of range damage. The movement update that made NPCs move completely to their destination had not been updated yet, so entering the room while the range and mage bodyguards were on the nw side of the room would get them caught, making it possible to solo graardor without taking any damage at all.

I do not know how well know this bug was initially, though I found the bug on the second day but played at night on german servers and I didn't see anyone use it until approximately 3ish weeks later, when everyone else found out about it. It was fixed soon afterwards without a system update. The pics I had were lost in a computer crash but I still have the video of the discovery somewhere, maybe ill put it up. Instead, heres a pic of my friend doing it:
Posted Image

Saradomin Boss - Commander Zilyana
There were two bugs involved:
1. Starlight's North wall bug
Discovered: First day
Standing on the north wall of the boss room prevented starlight from noticing you. Wasn't changed until the second bug was fixed.
2. Zilyana safespot
Discovered: Unknown
Zil's room was the only boss room to not have perfect corners - rather, they were jagged three tiers. Again, this was before the complete NPC movement update, so it was possible to get her stuck on the northern corners while you only took damage from bree or growler (usually bree). This wasn't so much a bug as much as it was just improper room design.
I found out about the safespot long after graardor's bug was fixed; some emails show around middle december 2007. I know some other groups of monster hunters knew shortly before we did (I was inspired by Soma2035 to find the safespot), but it is entirely possible that it was discovered far before that.

I know for a fact that energy was not suppose to be a replacement for fatigue. When beta was first released, there were still sleeping bags.
Run energy was bugged when it first came out. If you had a negative weight, your run energy would increase.

A couple of things you might want to add, the first ranked in the new skills. I know that the person for summoning is a tifer and he took a highscores picture. A couple of the larger bugs are when the top floor of the slayer tower briefly became the wilderness after an unrelated update and the barbarian assault glitch which allowed runes to be smuggled out. Here's a video of that by tainted ones, they used to specialise in glitches but they tended to get banned. There's also a few more glitches on that guys channel.

This was a great read, I'm impressed and thanks.

Yes, I believe it was a TIF Admin that was the first ranked in Summoning. "Bier" was the first to be ranked in Dungeoneering (source).

no doubt an interesting thread to read brimming with potential to house the history of rs2 in the future. here are some contributions you might want to include:


may i suggest you to include the major December 10 riots that happened 2 or 3 years back in the facts too.

here are 2 pictures that was taken in the party room chest during the riots when many quitted rs. these 2 pictures are not taken by me though, they were posted by other users on tif and i only saved them in my computer due to the epicness.



interesting player. the picture is self-explanatory


interesting username(mods please remove if this is against the rule)



and heres a picture taken during the final fight of while guthix sleeps quest, the only time possible for any player to get their combat stats over 200(253 to be exact)



The Old Nite?

Yes, indeed he was a great player. I just don't know how to exactly list/credit them without mentioning all the other top 3-4 players. Such as Uloveme, Daverick, Lilyuffie88 , Green098, and some others I can't exactly remember right now :(. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to "mention" the rank 3-4s throughout RS2's history, please help :D.


That was a great read. i had no idea just how much went into runescape. I have been playing for a few years and time flys by when playing. I have enjoyed some updates and was disapoointed with others but never have I stop playing. Thank you for letting me take a trip down memory lane.

No problem :). Remember to check it out in the future. I will continue to upadte it and add more.

Twenty Fourr should be added to stakers.

Hmm. He might had been big, but I'm sure not on the level that the current listed stakers were. Do you have any links to his galleries/videos?



Here you can have my old "first player to ever hit 100" pic. (shameless plug but if 3hitu can post then I can 2)
It was before there were ever 100s in hitsplats.
I recieved so many pms saying I photoshopped the 1 on.

Hah, I recall Laikrob had to stand with you incase you accidentally died :)


Thanks, I remember seeing that picture and someone hitting a "102" some time after. I will add it as a fact :D

First and only player to cast monster examine on every NPC possible: Jard Y Dooku.

No longer holds, but I did meet my goal at one point before they added new NPCs. And I do mean every.

Although I do believe you, that is hard to verify...

Good work. :thumbsup:

Thank you! Please come back once in a while as I will continue to update the fact sheet :)

The one player that is the most amazing to me is bluerose13x, she ruled Runescape for a good amount of time, being the first 99 smither.

Of which, what happened to her? She is not on the high scores.

Probably changed names, or requested Jagex to lock her account and take it off the hiscores. Blueruse13x had a tremendous impact on the economy of RS1 when she started smithing Rune. She pretty much controlled it and set her prices. Thus, she is in the RSC Fact Sheet instead.

Thank you very much. I will use your descriptions and add it to the bugs & glitches section. Credited, of course :)


I know for a fact that energy was not suppose to be a replacement for fatigue. When beta was first released, there were still sleeping bags.
Run energy was bugged when it first came out. If you had a negative weight, your run energy would increase.

Hmm, this is very interesting (sleeping bags in RS2 Beta). I was talking about "fatigue" in the skills tab which I thought was interesting. Do you happen to have screenshots of sleeping bags in RS2 beta? or have some unique keywords I can head off in search of? Thanks :D

Credit Trey if you feel like using any of these.

The screen after logging in, well there was no other before it. Before it, you just logged in. Already have it (link)
Thank you for the old world select screenshot :). Those are pretty to hard.
N0valyfe's website I scanned every page a couple times. Yea, I got his hiscore pics :)
The ingame world select I believe happened during the v3 RS theme.. which has had too many minor changes to it to include

I have a screenshot of the v1 message center but it's not "appropriate" and it doesn't really demonstrate the old msg center too well.
Link: http://rs2factsheet..../file.php?id=69

Thanks again :). You will be credited, of course.

Will start updating the Fact Sheet :)

There was one login screen before this i believe. It had the 4 elemental runes on screen and it was on a scroll.

Maybe im remembering something wrong.

It's funny, I remember 90% of the older stuff but anything within the past year or two is new to me. I may still have some old photos to contribute to a few of these, I will have to search for them.

Wow, those old home page screens really bring back memories. Am I the only person who is getting tired of "Runescape: Dungeons of Daemonheim"? The minigame-skill type thing came out months ago, it's time for the home page to go back to normal.

Awesome thread! :thumbup:

Hey everyone.

I have two questions for you guys:

Would you like to see a compilation of pictures (all edited into one picture, as with the beta pics) of how common monsters looked before their graphical updates?

and

Can anyone make a simple sig bar with "Runescape 2 Fact Sheet" written on it? In black, blue, gray, green, and red? Please :).

:)

Great post! Lots of memories.

I didn't read the whole thread so this may have been discussed. I don't remember the exact details but When the Abyss was released you could attack players inside it like it was the wilderness. I had a few pictures of the attack but they are long gone.
