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

RuneScape Companion login page

RuneScape Companion menu

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

Having successfully logged in, you'll be greeted with the menu. Here you'll have five options: ge checker, chat, 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, 4 transactions are awaiting you in your collection box, and one friend is online.

GE Checker

RuneScape Companion GE Checker

The GE Checker allows you the ability to view your 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 cannot buy or sell through the companion at this time.

When you click on the GE Checker link, you'll see your 6 GE slots from in the game. Each slot 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

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

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.

RuneScape Companion Stock Market History
RuneScape Companion 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

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.

D&D Tracker

RuneScape Companion D&D Tracker
RuneScape Companion 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.

RuneScape Companion 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

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.
