The Store

Solomon's General Store
Solomon's General Store

You will find Solomon and his store near The Grand Exchange in Varrock. For those with questions, Solomon will answer everything you need to know, otherwise you will be able to open the door to his store where you will be logged out of the game to view the wide variety of outfits, pets and other items that Solomon has for sale.

Should you wish to preview some of your purchased goods, the animal paw icon on the left side of the store will open the pet management interface, and the shirt icon on the right side of the store will open the wardrobe interface.

Currency

Items in Solomon's General Store are purchased with runecoins and loyalty points.

Runecoins

Runecoins are the currency used by Solomon's General Store. To purchase runecoins, simply click the 'Buy' button on the Solomon's General Store interface. You can also visit the billing page directly to buy runecoins (you'll need to login).

On the billing page you can choose your preferred payment method and the number of runecoins you'd like to buy. Fill in your details and press 'Purchase' to complete the transaction. Once your purchase has been successfully completed, the runecoins will be added to account.

Note that, due to the way the game interfaces with our website, you will be logged out of the game as the purchase interface is loaded. This is normal. You will also be unable to open the purchase interface during certain minigames.

You can exit the purchase interface at any time by clicking on the red cross in the top right corner. Note that you will have to login to the game again if you wish to continue playing.

Loyalty points

Loyalty points are a virtual currency offered as a reward through the Members Loyalty Programme. For each month that you are a member you will receive loyalty points.

Loyalty points work in two ways: cumulatively for the number of months you have been a member while being signed up to the programme, and consecutively for being a member for several months in a row. You will never lose your cumulative total, but if you are without membership for even a day, your consecutive total will be reset to zero.

Navigating the Store

Layout

The store is split into three panels: the navigation panel, the information panel and the product panel.

Solomon's General Store

Navigation Panel

Store categories

The navigation panel is found along the left side of the store. This panel allows you to browse the store's categories and discover all the great things that Solomon has to offer.

Each category will tell you how many items can be found inside it with a number next to the category name. Clicking on a category will load the items contained in that category into the product panel, explained below.

Some categories have been split up further to ease navigation.

Information Panel

At the top of the store you'll find the information panel where any special offers will be shown to you through the rotating banner. You will also be able to see your runecoin and loyalty points displays, and the 'Extend' (or 'Join') and 'Buy' buttons.

The 'Buy' button will take you to the billing section of the website where you will see all of the runecoin packages available.

The 'Earn' button will take you to the SupersonicAds interface where you can earn runecoins.

The 'Join' button will show if you do not have membership. Clicking this button will take you to a page describing what you get when you are a member and will allow you to subscribe. If you are already a member you will instead see an 'Extend' button which will take you to the billing section of the website where you will see all of the membership packages available.

Product Panel

The largest part of the Store is the product panel where all of the products for your chosen category are shown.

Store pagination

You will see 6 items at a time, and if there are more than 6 items in the category, you can move between the pages using the arrows at the bottom of the product panel.

Store filter

You can also specify an exact page number using the box to the far right. Simply enter the page number you want to go to and press 'Return' on your keyboard.

You can sort items in a category using the 'Sort By' button on the right side of the product panel. Hovering over this will give you a number of choices with which to order your items. Perhaps you want to sort the items by their cost in loyalty points if you have some to spend, you can do this here.

Store search

You can also search items using the search box in the top-left corner of the product panel. This will search all categories for the term you have entered.

To search, simply type a term into the box. If multiple items match your terms, they will display in a drop down box. Pressing the 'Go' button will take you to the first item in this list.

New items to the store are marked with an icon New item icon as are popular items Popular item icon.

Item Details

Store Details

Clicking on an item in the Store will highlight its detailed information including an image gallery, description, cost, item details and usage restrictions.

On the left side of the item details panel is the image gallery which shows a variety of in-game and illustration images of each item. The arrows below the image gallery allow you to navigate through these images.

To the right of the panel you'll find details on the item's cost (in loyalty points and/or runecoins); how long it lasts for and if it has any other restrictions; a description of the item; and details on what you will receive with your purchase.

At the bottom of the panel you'll see the 'Buy' button which allows you to purchase the currently selected item.

Purchasing an Item

Purchase Details

Purchasing an item from the store is done by selecting an item from one of the store categories and clicking on the 'Buy' button in the item detail panel.

This screen offers you the chance to confirm that you're happy with your selection. The currencies you can use to pay will be displayed on the purchase details screen with the price broken down by any discounts that are available. For example, members always get a 10% runecoins discount on all items. You will also be able to see your current balance in both available currencies at the bottom of the screen.

If you're short of currency, and the item offers the chance to pay with both, consider making the purchase using the alternative currency. You will have to be patient if you've run short on loyalty points but if you're low on runecoins the display will show you exactly how many you need to complete your purchase, making it easy to pick the runecoins package that's right for you!

Solomon, the generous genie that he is, has gifts for everyone! Players get a free item every month, so watch out for announcements on the RuneScape website.

Confirmation of purchase

After you complete your purchase click the close button in the upper right hand corner of the store to return to RuneScape. You will receive a chat message reminding you of your new purchases and a flashing indicator will highlight icons with unlocked content.

Equipping Your Purchases

Some of your purchases will already be activated when you return to the game, such as bank boosters, others appear in your inventory or are unlocked in the emotes interface. Many of the purchases you make however are for cosmetic overrides - items that graphically adjust the look of your equipment without changing it's statistics and other benefits. To activate cosmetic overrides you need to visit the gear screen in game. This is accessed by pressing 'F2' on your keyboard, or by clicking the gear icon on the ribbon.
