DarkScape Wiki

There is a large number of differences between DarkScape and RuneScape 3. Below is a list of major differences between the two game version only. The list contains the most important changes that a player will come across when coming from RuneScape 3. This is not an exhaustive list.


  • Bank Guards and Town Guards will drain their opponent's prayer dramatically in combat, almost always enough to completely drain the player's prayer points.
  • Some faction NPCs (like the Gnome Guards at the Tree Gnome Stronghold) will attack any player wandering near them.
  • Some dungeon NPCs are also aggressive.
  • Ardougne and Wilderness Volcano have extra Grand Exchanges.

Travel Costs

  • Charter ships cost 100x more than normal.
  • Gnome gliders cost 2 Planks and 2 Bolts of cloth.1 (A Strip of cloth may not be used.)
  • Spirit trees cost 1 set of Root cuttings, made by using a knife on Roots from farming.
  • Fairy rings cost 1 Mort myre fungus. (Make sure to bring enough for a return trip)
  • Mine carts cost 10 Coal to use.
  • Balloon transport system requires 10 logs per travel instead of 1.
  • Weight has more effect on your run energy, your run energy depletes faster, and recharges more slowly. It functions identically to Old School RuneScape.


  • Lodestone teleports cannot be used if you are carrying any items.
  • Other teleports (spells, items, etc) can only be used if destination has higher or the same threat level, if carrying items. Runes used to cast a spell will count as carried.
  • Every teleportation spell takes 10 seconds to cast, and is not interrupted by combat. However teleportation spells could be interrupted, if you have auto-retaliate on.


  • Entering the Abyss does not skull a player.
  • A skulled player will remain skulled for 5 minutes.
