To prevent such a devastating loss, your character has been provided with a bank account. You can place any item in your bank account and retrieve it at any time from any bank.
The Bank of Gielinor has branches all over the world. Branches of this bank can be found in Varrock, Falador, Edgeville, Draynor Village, and many other populated areas.
When you arrive at a bank, simply click on the bank booth to perform the default action, 'Use Bank booth'. By doing this, you will start a conversation with one of the bankers. Talking to a banker is very important as this allows you to set your bank account PIN.
Right-clicking on the booth will display the following options - 'Use Bank booth', 'Use-quickly Bank booth', 'Collect and Examine Bank booth'. These options are always displayed for a player using a single button mouse.
By selecting Use Bank booth, you will start a conversation with a banker. To bypass the conversation screens and access your account immediately, select the 'Use-quickly Bank booth' option.
To check up on any offers you have made at The Grand Exchange, select 'Collect'. This will bring up a small window to inform you whether any trades have been completed. You can collect any cash or items you have won by clicking on the trade. You can also use the Collect right-click option to pick up any items you previously lent to other players.
Once you have decided to use the bank, your bank account will be displayed. Here you will see all of the items that you have gathered and saved.
Storage space in bank accounts are different for members and non-members. Members have hundreds of spaces in their bank, while non-members have 68 (78 if an email address has been registered on the account).
If you have multiple items of the same type in the bank, a number will appear next to it to indicate how many you have. The bankers aren't fussy and will safely store anything from runes to big piles of coal!
Some items will not stack in your bank, as the bankers find them too confusing. These items are usually used to hold other items, like the satchels from Tower of Life. Other items are simply unbankable, but these are rare in Gielinor.
To deposit or withdraw an item, simply click on it. Players with multiple button mice will withdraw or deposit a single piece of that item. Players using a single button mouse will get a menu of options.
To deposit more than one of an item at a time, players using a multiple button mouse should right-click on the item to deposit or withdraw, and select the number you wish to deposit or withdraw from the list. Alternatively, you can use the three icons in the bottom-right to deposit everything from your inventory, your equipped inventory or your Summoning familiar's inventory. The banks are free to use, so making use of them to safely store your extra items is a very good idea!
To help organise your bank account, you can arrange specific items into 'tabs'. At the top of the interface, you will see two main tabs; the first of these is the 'All' tab, and is marked with the 'infinity' symbol (which looks like a sideways 8). This tab shows every item in your bank account.
To set up a tab, simply drag an item onto the tab marked with a '+'. This will create a new tab that will only show a set of items that you specify and will be marked with the item you first drag onto it. Dragging more items onto the tab will place them into that section of your bank account. Each of these sections will be marked in your main account window, or you can click on the tab to view only those items.
For instance, if you want to keep your melee combat gear in an easy-to-find location, you might like to keep all of it in a specific tab. You will still be able to find it in your main account (by clicking the 'All' tab), but you can choose specific items to be displayed to make accessing them much quicker.
You may also drag items from a Search into a tab or to create a new one. Up to 8 tabs can be created at any one time. For an at-a-glance view of how many spaces remain in your bank, look at the counter at the bottom of your bank screen (right of the 'note' toggle button).
To remove a bank tab, right-click on it and select 'Collapse tab'. A tab will also be removed if you clear it of items.
If your account is filling up with items, you'll find it useful to know that there is a function that allows you to search your bank account for specific items. Simply click the 'Search' button and type the name, or part of the name, of the item you are looking for; this will filter out all of the other items visible in your bank interface, so you can easily locate an item buried deep in your overflowing bank account. You can turn off the search feature at any time by clicking the 'Search' button again or clicking outside of the Search window.
There are two ways for you to rearrange your bank account: Swap and Insert. You can select which by clicking the 'Swap/Insert' button, at the bottom of the bank interface. If you have selected the 'Swap' option, you can drag and drop items in your bank on top of other items, and the two items will swap positions in your bank.
If you have selected the 'Insert' option, dragging an item on top of an existing item will move other items around to accommodate it.
These numbers represent your non-member and member bank space. The left-hand numbers, separated by a diagonal line, represent your non-member bank space. In this instance, the player has filled all of their non-member bank space (68 items in 68 bank spaces).
The right-hand numbers, separated by another diagonal line, represent the member bank space and how much of it you have filled. In this instance, the player has only used 113 (68+45) of their available 536 member bank slots.
There are a few things worth remembering when glancing at these numbers.
Finally, everyone who has their email address registered with us, be they free-player or member, will receive an additional 10 'free' bank spaces, making for a maximum possible total of 78 bank spaces for free-players or 546 bank spaces for members. Registering your email address is quick and easy to do. For more information about email registration, go to the email registration section under Account Settings.
Those players who take one step extra and validate their email address will receive an additional 10 bank slots, making for a maximum possible total of 88 bank spaces for free-players or 556 bank spaces for members.
Players are able to gain an additional 250 bank slots through Solomon's General Store for 420 RuneCoins (378 for members) per 50 slots. This takes the total bank spaces available to 338 bank spaces for free-players or 806 bank spaces for members.
As part of a promotion running through Solomon's General Store, a free bank booster item was made available. Members who collected this item have a total possible bank space availability of 856.
Any items which don't normally stack in your inventory and that are tradable (such as ore and food) can be withdrawn in the form of a note. If an item cannot be traded, you will not be able to withdraw it as a note. This allows large trades without taking up lots of inventory slots. To choose to withdraw the items as a note, you can toggle the 'Note/Item' button at the bottom of the interface.
Items stored in note form cannot be wielded or equipped, and cannot be used in most skills. They can be sold as notes to any shop that would buy the un-noted item, and they can also have the low and high alchemy spells cast upon them.
If you have a beast of burden familiar (from the Summoning skill), you can move its entire inventory into your bank account by clicking the 'wolf head' icon at the bottom-right of the bank interface.
There is a need to keep our riches safe and sound, therefore the Bank of Gielinor has given each bank account the option of a PIN system.
You will have to create one for yourself, preferably the first time you access your bank account.
To get to this screen, simply talk to the banker and select 'Check your PIN setting'. This bank PIN setting will provide you with information on the status of your pin.
You can click on 'Set a PIN' to set your PIN for the first time or change it later.
If you want to change how long a PIN recovery takes, click on 'Change your recovery delay'.
It is optional to set a PIN, but it is highly recommended.
With all the items you can get within the game, there are bound to be things you no longer need in your bank. The Wise Old Man in Draynor can help you with this.
Just ask him to check your things for junk and if he finds something that you no longer need, he will offer to remove it for you - he may even give you a few coins for some items. The Wise Old Man can check your bank and your inventory.
When clicking an item, you will be offered to accept or decline the removal of that item. Once you have made a choice for all the items that the Wise Old Man found, the interface will disappear and any items that you selected for removal will be deleted from your bank/inventory.
Note that he doesn't have a list of everything, so some 'junk' items may get left behind
