RuneScape Companion

The RuneScape Companion is a free web app that allows you to talk to your friends in RuneScape using your mobile phone, tablet or PC without logging into the game.

There's no need to download and install it from an app store, just bookmark the web address and stay in contact with your RuneScape friends while on the go. For the moment it supports Friends Chat, Clan Chat and Private Messages to and from the game but we’ll be adding more features throughout 2014 so let us know what you’d like to see!

Getting Started

Login page
Login page

Firstly, you'll need to go to the web app itself. This can be found on the on the RuneScape website. You'll then need to login with a Jagex account (Facebook logins unfortunately do not work).

Menu
Menu

Having successfully logged in, you'll be greeted with the menu. Here you'll have several options: ge checker, bank, stock market, chat, D&D tracker, friends list, clan members and settings.

If you have friends or clan members online, or if you have any completed transactions on the GE, you'll see a green number on these menu buttons indicating this. So, in the image to the right, two transactions are awaiting you in your collection box, and one friend is online.

Grand Exchange

Grand Exchange
Grand Exchange

The Grand Exchange allows you the ability to view your in-game Grand Exchange usage. This includes items that you have placed a bid on, or items that you are are selling along with the progress of those sales. You can also buy and sell items through the companion.

When you click on the Grand Exchange link, you'll see your 6 GE slots from in the game. If you haven't filled a slot you will have the option to buy or sell an item. If you have a filled slot, it will list:

  • the item name and image
  • the price you selected
  • whether you are buying/selling
  • how much you are willing to pay/accept
  • whether or not the transaction has completed or been cancelled

Buying and Selling

Purchase History
Purchase History

Before you can start to buy or sell via the Companion, you'll need to have the RuneScape Authenticator activated on your account. Once you have this, buying and selling items from your inventory is simple.

Bank PIN
Bank PIN

If you have a Bank PIN activated, you will be asked to enter this when buying or selling items.

Load the Grand Exchange and click the 'Buy' button on one of your empty slots. This will bring up the search feature (see the bank section below for how to find an item) and a list of your previous transactions.

Buy Item
Buy Item

Type in the quantity that you want to buy/sell, or press the three buttons below the price. These will either set the price to be 5% less than the market price, the market price or 5% more than the market price.

When you are happy with the price, press 'Confirm offer' to put your request into the Grand Exchange.

Selling works in a similar manner.

Checking the Status of your Items

Grand Exchange Item
Grand Exchange Item

Viewing your Grand Exchange slots is easy when using the Companion. Blue highlights will be applied to slots where items are being bought. Items being sold will have orange highlights.

If a transaction has been cancelled, it will be marked with a red cancelled icon cancelled ge transaction.png. If the transaction has been completed, it will be marked with a green completed icon completed ge transaction.png. In both these cases, you'll need to collect the items and/or coins from the Grand Exchange within the game before you are able to use that slot again. Ongoing transactions will have neither icon.

Clicking on any of the slots, with the exception of blank slots, will bring up more details about the transaction. Here you'll be able to see:

  • the item name, image and its description
  • how many you are buying/selling
  • what price the item usually goes for
  • what price you are paying/asking for
  • how many items you want to buy/sell and how many have been bought/sold already
  • how much you have spent/will get in total when the transaction completes

Bank

Bank
Bank

The Bank section lets you view the items you have stored in your bank.

At the top of the page you'll see a search box, allowing you to look through your bank to find specific items that match the terms you've entered.

Below the search bar you'll see how many bank slots you have in total, and how many you've used.

The main area of this section of the companion shows your items. As with your in-game bank, you'll see all of the items in tab 1 (or all of your items if you aren't using multiple tabs). You can select your other tabs, which are named by the item used as the tab's icon, from the drop down box at the bottom of the page.

Bank Item Details
Item Details

Clicking on an item will bring up details about it in the area at the bottom of the companion. Items that can be sold on the Grand Exchange will have their price listed and a graph button that can be clicked on to take you to that item in the Stockmarket part of the companion.

Stock Market

Stock Market
Stock Market

The Stock Market lets you look up the price of items on The Grand Exchange. Simply search for your desired item using the search bar at the top of the page. Partial search terms work, but only full words. So, as in the image to the left, 'seismic' would work, but 'seis' would not.

The search results page will show you all items that have matched your query, how much they are currently selling for and how much their price has changed from yesterday.

Stock Market History
Stock Market History

Clicking on an item will load the historical data for that item, allowing you to view how it has performed in the past. You'll see the item's name and description, a guide price and the change in price since yesterday.

You'll also be able to see graphs for the item's performance over the past month, three months and six months. Clicking on these time frames will change the graph to show you the requested data. The graphs show the daily average and monthly average over the chosen time period.

Chat

Chat
Chat

This section is where you'll spend the most time on the web app if you're looking to talk to other players. Along the top of this section you'll have a link to return to the menu on the left, and a link to go to your settings on the right.

Below the menu and settings buttons are four tabs, one for each chat channel that you can view. To navigate between the chat channels click the chat icon. Players who have mobile devices with touch screens can swipe left or right to move between channels.

The rest of the chat screen will vary depending on which channel you have open.

Chat in game

All Chat

All Chat

The all chat channel will show all messages in the lobby, your private chat, and the friends/clan channels that you are in.

Your messages will be shown on the right of the app, messages from other players will show on the left of the screen. Next to each player's message you will see their avatar (if they have one set) and their name. The channel name and the channel type will also show.

The very bottom of the all chat screen has a button on the left to see who is in the channel, and a button on the right to add a player to your friends list.

The very bottom of the private chat screen has a button to load your friends list.

Friends Chat

Friends Chat

The friends chat channel will show all messages in the current friends channel that you are in. If you are not in a friends channel you will be asked to enter the name of the player who owns the channel you want to chat in.

Next to each player's message you will see their avatar (if they have one set) and their name. The channel name and the channel type will also show but this is more useful in the All channel.

D&D Tracker

D&D Tracker
D&D Tracker

The D&D Tracker allows you the ability to view a list of the Distractions & Diversions and see how long it is until you can take part in them. The D&D Tracker also lets you see if you've completed that D&D, or still have some of it left to take part in this period.

When you access the D&D Tracker from the Companion menu, you will see all of the D&Ds listed. Below the D&D name you will see either how long the event will remain active for, how long until the next event, or if the event is ready or nearly ready. For some D&Ds their availability depends on the world that they are running on and so they will not have these messages.

To the right of all the D&Ds you'll find an icon that also indicates their readiness. D&Ds that are nearly ready to play will have a nearly ready d&d.png nearly ready icon, D&Ds that are ready to play will show a ready d&d.png ready icon, and D&Ds that have already been completed this period will show a completed d&d.png completed icon.

D&D Information
D&D Information

If you click on any of the D&Ds you will see more information about that particular D&D. This includes:

  • The status of the D&D - if you can play, how long it has left this time period, or when the next reset is
  • A brief description of the D&D
  • Details on what it provides as a reward
  • A description of any requirements that need to be met in order to take part
  • Your progress in the D&D this time period

Settings

This area of the Companion allows you to set various chat and privacy permissions.

All permissions are grouped by the part of the web app that they are relevant to. As the profanity filter and online status apply to all areas, these are listed separately.

Simply click the section titles (grey bars) to show the options in that section. From here you can either: click the toggle buttons to turn an option on or off; or click to choose one of the multiple settings available.
