the new search is awesome will help loads. for new and old players

"/wiki" *insert what you want to search"

just one suggestion to maybe help

have a drag to place items into it in case in situations where typing is difficult such as full manual combat.

this "button" could just be clicked to go to https://runescape.wiki/
(thanks combat snaps)

I like the idea of a drag and drop on the screen button. That way you can select any item in your inventory and equipment screen but also something that's shown on the screen that is rightmouse clickable as object or NPC.

Would do great for new players.


indeed it will be more known that its actually a thing. as theres no indication right now its a thing, unless you read update which new players wouldnt do

This is why i think a button maybe with the wiki symbol would be good next to the chat bar so its quick and easy for new players or players that don't read the news post that are archived. New players in the coming months or players returning will not know this feature exists unless they go back and read the archived news and i doubt many new players will do that let alone returning players.


indeed there really is no way to know for new players or as you said returning players to know. unless they hear it from other players or some reason read through old updates (when it becomes old)

The Drag & Drop system.

It can interfene with people trying to drop items or put it on their action bar and instead open unintended tabs. This is very dangerous in PvP & PvM


Will youd drag it to a button thats specifically for wiki. Which can be far away from either of the concerns raised. If they for whatever reason it is close to it. You can still type it out but the option is there to drag when doing other activities that arent dangerous

I tried actually wiki something, ended up misspelling it 2 times.
Whenever I Google, it gets corrected, it's faster that way. Though, this is just my PEBCAK.

I really need that button (preferable drag and drop) :(


No u dont

U can just wiki on google

Simplest solution is just remove the wiki function entiely

All hail google god!!!


More convenient to have it in game

Not really, it is more convenient to do it on Google


Then carry on using google

This will help many people that have difficulty remembering how to spell certain items. And will be quicker especially if its a drop that a new player doesnt know what it is.

Example the first hsr that was dropped the player kept it in bank unaware it was rarest drop in game worth billions. If drag drop search was there could have placed ring there to search aboit it. Saw its worth

Or when using full screen and google isnt available. But you want to search somethinf quickly for later search it wiki comes up and you save it later with it being there.

Its rather simple why drag and drop searxh is helpful.
