I just notice that there are 2 type of Rune coins -very confusing -if it wasn't for that new free Quest Event - ""Valkyries return """ I never would have found out about it.

1st -of all there are the general coins - to pay for weapons and Armour .

2nd- When I opened the Valkyries return event , I see there is R.S coins in this interface - so why was this not in the Tutorial when we start playing the game for the first time ??

3rd - why is this R.S coins Not situated in the Currency Pouch -with all the other stuff ?

4th - where do I click -to see how many R.S coins I have ( not the ones in my bank ) ???

What I am assuming you are referring to is the Rune Coins that you can use to purchase valkyrie feathers. Rune Coins are purchased with real-world money and are generally used in Soloman's General Store to purchase cosmetic items. It is not listed in your currency pouch because it is not directly linked to anything in the game. As far as I understand the only place you can see the amount you have is to visit Soloman's General Store. There are two ways to access Soloman's General Store. The first, and easiest is to click the button that looks like a golden crest with a red gem right next to the settings button. This will bring up the Upgrades and Extras menu. Here you will find your membership status, Runescape Bonds, Treasure Hunter, and of course Soloman's General Store. It shows you in this menu how many Rune Coins you have. The other way is traveling to Varrock right outside the G.E. gates and you will find Soloman with a few cosmetics on display. You should be able to talk to him to access his store. Overall Rune Coins have no bearing on the in-game gold coin or anything to do with the in-game economy. I hoped this helped clear up any confusion and good luck with the event.

^ It's Solomon, not Soloman. He may work solo, but he is definitely no man. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Actually the official name of the virtual currency purchasable with real money in this discussion is Runecoins, not Rune Coin or Rune Coins. There is only one type of Runecoins.

The virtual currency obtainable from playing this game in this Valkyrie Event is obviously Valkyrie Feathers, not Runecoins. Runecoins is the currency you use to purchase items in this Event as well as the items in the Solomon's Store is Runecoins. Runecoins and Valkyrie Feathes are two different currencies and obviously identifiable with 2 very different names.

Virtual Currencies, whether purchasable with real money or not, are not required to be fully explained in any tutorial. Virtual content doesn't have to fully explained under any tutorial much like characters or fictional items don't have to be fully explained in any movie or TV programs. That's why you don't see every pixels in any video games, not just Jagex's games, being fully described in Tutorial Island.

However, when you buy a virtual currency like Runecoins in a Jagex game with real money, you will be advised what you are buying in the game's domain. Platforms like App Stores and Google may also require in-game (or in-app) purchase notification such as:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jagex.runescape.android&hl=en_US

In-app Products
$5.99 - $109.99 per item


or in the case of OSRS:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jagex.oldscape.android&hl=en_US

In-app Products
$6.99 - $99.99 per item


As for why Runecoins is not in the currency pouch, I think the main reason is it can not be directly earned from playing the game like other currencies such as gp, Valkyrie Feathers, Bonds etc. You can't buy Runecoins directly with any of the currencies obtainable by playing the game. However, you can exchange Bonds (earnable from trading gp) to Runecoins though.

Actually, the official name of the virtual currency purchasable with real money in this discussion is RuneCoins, not Runecoins. See how pretentious that comes across as? What difference does it make if there is a space, s, or the C is capitalized or not? No one misunderstood what I was referring to when I said it. Also, if you are going to be a Grammar Nazi, please use proper punctuation and capitalization. As I demonstrated above, there is indeed a comma after "actually." Or you can alternatively do it with a funny pun like King's Abbot, your choice.

I never said that RuinCoins and Valkyrie feathers were the same. I said that they are used to purchase the Valkyrie feathers. If you open the even menu, there is a shop tab on the left that brings you to where you can use RuneCoins to purchase the feathers. This is where the OP came across them and why he was asking about them. Obviously, these are not the same as the in-game currency the Coin (also referred to as Gold Coin, Gold Pieces, and GP) or the Valkyrie Feathers, otherwise, the OP would not have posted about them. Not once did anyone say that any of the different currencies were the same thing.

OP is either a new player or a returning player after a long absence. Not everyone is going to know all there is to know about the game; not even you knew everything when you first started. He came on here with a question about something he didn't understand with a willingness to learn about a game that he is playing. You coming on here and rubbing your knowledge in peoples faces in a manner akin to rubbing a dog's nose in the carpet after he just did his business, is only going to serve to drive new players away. You should be happy that someone enjoys this game enough to try and learn more about it rather than treating them like they are imbeciles or not knowing something.

I pulled nothing negative out of that. They have OP valuable information and corrected them on terminology in an effort to educate anyone who came across this thread.

But okay.

My post was obviously meant for OP and whom it may be interested.

If OP has any questions or constructive comments regarding mine, I am more than happy to provide further help. He just needs to ask himself.

Also, from OP's profile he doesn't seem to be a new player and he has played since November. My post is and always meant for all kinds of players, regardless is he is new or 18 year veteran anyway.

This is a friendly post just to remind everyone to focus more on the subject of the thread and help the OP with his questions instead of attempting to derail the thread or making personal attacks. Thank you. :)

TYVM. Now, let's restore order and focus on the subject of this thread.

Obviously, there is only one kind of Runecoins (or RuneCoins for those insist jagex is not the same as Jagex). We have many many many event currencies though, for example Valkyrie Feathers.

In case if OP still have questions regarding event currencies, perhaps it will help if he compares it with TH events. I know from OP's forum profile that he is definitely not a new player and he has been posting a lot in 2018 and even in 2017 he posted in a TH thread agreeing to making lamps obtainable from a TH event bankable so he could go dungeoneering. From that, we should should have knowledge on TH events.

Both TH keys and Valkyrie Feathers are not described in Tutorial Island for the reason I have specified on my first post of this thread. They are just virtual content that an entertainment, mind it movie, game, TV program etc usually don't give "tutorials" on. Imagine if Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back had to give a "tutorial" on What "The Empire" is in the movie... well, I guess all the movie goers would fall to sleep and give the movie a very poor rating. Typically, when consumers really want to know the details on every single virtual content in an entertainment, they visit the entertainment's own and social media as well as their fan sites.

Same thing here in Jagex I guess. There are plenty of places to get information OUTSIDE THE GAME, but not with Tutorial Island.

Furthermore, TH keys are also not on the Currency Pouch neither, since as in the case of Ruincoins, TH keys are not the same kind of common currencies players can obtain a lot from playing the game directly.
