Welcome to the official thread of the Friends Chat
Portables
.

'Portables' FC, originally 'Portables FC', was founded on May 30th, 2014 by
Leus
to share locations of any portables you or anyone is deploying, helping others gain the bonus xp and other benefits from these useful items.


Friends Chat (FC):

Portables




Clan Chat (CC):

Portables
- channel used as back-up, for overflow during DXP weekends.

Sub Friends Chat (FC):

Boxes
- portable deposit boxes, for training Summoning during DXP weekends (post 2.6 for more information).



Please read this thread to be aware of how the FC is run before using it.



This thread is not the place to complain or rant about the FC, a rank, an FC kick/ban, nor is the FC. Read the rules and FAQ - if you still have any concerns, please try to reach an

FC Capacity
- People in the lobby will be kicked to free space periodically. Off-world removals will also occur to help clear inactives if the FC is too full.

Hosts
- Anyone may host. Hosts are players who share their portables with and help the community.

Callers
- Anyone may help out and call locations, including ranks. Help others like yourself find their location. Players may also post on this thread with updated locations if they wish.

Ranks
- Ranks are simply volunteers who are helpful and trusted in the FC. Do not expect them to actively call locations constantly during their presence as they are under no obligation, and may only be monitoring the chat and/or occupied with in-game activities, as any player.

Donations
- Any donations should be given to the hosts. Hosts must not ask for donations in the FC. You may donate/help out by adding more portables to their portable, extending the duration.

Trolls
- Handling trolls can be done by hosting at a citadel (with cc ban list access), letting a rank know, changing worlds/locations or simply ignoring them.


Neither helpers (hosts/callers) nor ranks get anything in return for helping, so make sure you thank them. :)

1.1 - How the FC works



Anyone may call or host portables.



Looking for a portable
:

- Ask kindly in the FC if there are any active locations of the portable you need. If there aren't any, either start one up and host yourself, wait around patiently or come back later. Please remember to thank the caller and hosts.

If muted, ask through Quick Chat: "Where can I get item: Portable (...)?"

F2P: Forges, Crafters, Braziers and Ranges are F2P. F2P hosts are very rare in the FC, therefore do not expect active F2P locations all of the time. We recommend checking these locations as F2P players usually tend to host there: W3, 11, 17 & 29 at Combat Academy or the G.E.


Hosting a portable
:

- State in the FC which portable(s), world, location and possibly the length of time you’re going to be hosting for. Please note that we only call popular portable locations listed below on post 1.4.


NOTE: Please wait around 5 minutes before calling a location dead. The host may be AFK/restocking or someone else may take over hosting especially if the location is crowded.




Abbreviations
:


Portables
:

R = Ranges
M = Mills (Sawmills)
W = Wells
FO = Forges
C = Crafters
B = Braziers
FL = Fletchers

Locations
:

CA = Combat Academy
BA = Barbarian Assault
SP = Shantay Pass
BU = Burthorpe
CW = Castle Wars
P = Prifddinas

Any stated number stands for the world.

Example:

R99ca
= Ranges, world 99, Combat Academy.


For detailed information on portables and locations, please refer to posts 1.3 and 1.4 below.

1.2 - Rules


Read the rules before using the FC. Only one warning will be given - spammers and flamers may be kicked on sight.

All Jagex rules apply


No spam
- Any type of spam is not allowed.

No trading
- Any sort of trading is not allowed.

No flaming or complaints
- Be polite and respectful. Rude, disruptive and offensive behaviour will not be tolerated. Complaints should always be taken to ranks through PM, and not in the FC.

Off-topic allowed
- as long as it's not offensive, argumentative or spamming the chat (if someone asks for a location, stop and then resume).

English only
- If you must explain something to someone who does not speak English, please do it in PM.

No asking for donations
- Do not ask for or encourage players to donate in the FC. Feel free to ask in public, but do not spam, beg or demand for them. If someone asks if they can donate in the FC, please refer them to the hosts.

No lobbying
- Players in the lobby will be removed periodically by ranks to free space in the FC.

No host trolling
- Please follow simple and common hosting etiquette. Do not troll, lack respect and convenience, host and be a nuisance about it or not follow the rules in general. Do not place portables away from the bank especially with the intent of trolling and griefing, by making players constantly walk back and forth between them and the bank. It is a huge inconvenience, overall inefficient and also generates lag. We only call and allow locations where portables can be placed next to the bank, and they are expected to be placed accordingly and appropriately. Otherwise, your location will not be called and you will potentially be removed/banned from the chat.

No clan recruiting
- Asking players to join your clan or looking for clans in the FC is not permitted.

No advertising
- Do not ask players to buy something for you off the G.E, request assist, lend items, team up or anything that would require them to meet you somewhere, nor should you advertise anything unrelated to portables on or off the RuneScape website. This FC's only purpose is to share portable locations.

No left-click placers near portables
- Placers such as clan vexes, banners, markers and other deployable left-click items that may block and interfere with the portables or the bank should be placed away.

No OSRS, BETA or Ironman players
- These players cannot use portables. They will not be allowed to stay.

No more than 3 portables will be called per location
- No more than 3 portables per location may be called. If you are a host, please do not host more than 3 portables at once, as good as your intentions may be. Calling too many portables at the same place overcrowds the location, making some players lag and is very inefficient overall. If the host still wishes to do so, they are free to, but only 3 of their portables will be called. Multiple hosts are fine, but a maximum of 3 only per location will be called. Callers will use their best judgement and call the 3 most convenient ones, which takes into account factors such as priority, availability, placement and stability.

Do not ask for pulse cores
- We track and call portable locations, not pulse cores. Asking for them is disruptive for that reason in addition to the fact that they are too random and no one can really give you an answer. If someone happens to mention that they are being used at their location, that is fine, but do not ask for them and expect or demand an answer.

1.4 - Popular Locations



Portables are only called in the FC at these locations.


Combat Academy - (CA)
: North-west of the Lumbridge Lodestone, west of the furnace.

Lumbridge Crater - (LC)
: West of Lumbridge lodestone, behind the castle.

Barbarian Assault - (BA)
: Barbarian Outpost bank, north-west of Seer's Village. The fastest way to get there is by using a Games necklace (option 2) to teleport to Barbarian Outpost.

Shantay Pass - (SP)
: South of al-Kharid, you can use a Glory amulet to teleport right next to the chest.

Burthorpe - (BU)
:
At the bank, use Burthorpe lodestone.

Castle Wars - (CW)
: West of Yanille. Easiest way to get there is by using a Ring of dueling, option 2.

Prifddinas - (P)
: Elf city - at the Tower of Voices (GE), unless otherwise specified (any other bank/district in the city). Plague’s End quest is required.

Clan Citadels
: Enter as a guest by joining the portal at the Clan camp from any world east of the Crafting Guild. The fastest way to get to there is via a skill's necklace teleporting to the Craft guild or a clan vexillum, which will teleport you right next to the portal. Hosts will place these portables at their keep. The Citadel is often used to keep a disruptive player out with the CC's ban list preventing them from joining their Citadel.


F2P: Due to the rarity of F2P locations, they may be hosted and called anywhere and not only as per the locations listed above.

1.5 - Locations to Avoid


The following locations should only be advertised as a last resort, if there aren't any alternative locations. Once there are other locations, these will not be advertised and players calling them will be ignored or removed if told not to call them by a rank. As a host, it is recommended to host in any other world if you like the actual location. Otherwise, it is very likely your location will be ignored during calling.


World 2 Burthorpe
- This location on world 2 is very inefficient to host at, since it is usually random players dropping random portables inconsistently. Lag is also a major issue, as it is a very popular location for players to hang out, advertise, drop divine locations, recruit for clans and many other activities. It is too public for us to enforce our rules.
