Free-to-play section of the world map.

Free-to-play, also known as F2P, is the free version of RuneScape where no payment to Jagex is required to play. Players who play the free version of RuneScape are known as "Free players", "F2Ps", or "Non-members". This is in contrast to members, who pay a fee for access to a much larger map and a multitude of skills, items, quests, and activities, which are not available to free-to-play users. It is worth noting that free-to-play users can gain access to membership through in-game purchases of membership bonds.

Anyone with a valid RuneScape account can access free-to-play servers.

Free-to-play was released permanently on the 19th of February 2015, due to people voting yes in the poll for the introduction of free-to-play along with membership bonds. Before this a 2-week F2P trial existed for new accounts.

Free-to-play contentEdit

While there are many limitations, to the game that are members only, Free to play still yields a decent gaming experience for players. However, it is important to remember Free To Play is basically a demo of the full game, and a significant bias against F2P does exist, especially from players with membership.

SkillsEdit

Free-to-play has access to 15 skills and maximum total level for them is 1485.

The skills are:

MonstersEdit

Main article: Bestiary/F2P

There are relatively few monsters in free-to-play, partly due to there being only six dungeons in the free-to-play map. The dungeons are:

Some monsters have restricted drop tables in F2P and it should be noted that all areas, such as the Wilderness, do not contain all of the monsters found in members servers.

The highest level free-to-play monsters are Evil Chicken and Shades. Other notable higher level monsters include Ankous, Lesser demons, Greater demons and quest boss Elvarg.

QuestsEdit

Main article: Free-to-play Quests

There are 18 free-to-play quests with a total of 39 available quest points. With 32 quest points Champions' Guild becomes available and players may start arguably the most challenging free-to-play quest: Dragon Slayer.

MinigamesEdit

Free players have access to Duel Arena and 7 of the 11 Clan Wars maps. With the recent addition of Last Man Standing, free players can access LMS.

OtherEdit

Armour Worn Limitation

Players will find that there are many items they cannot equip unless they are members, should one browse their combat stat guides. (Players can find these guides in-game, by clicking on their Attack, Strength, or Defence levels. 

Although there are a great quantity of items unavailable, Non-members are still privileged with the use of all metal armours and weapons (aside from claws and the like) as well as Wizard Robes and hats, Leather / Hard / Studded leather armour, and Dragonhide armour.

Limited Bank Size Bank icon

Non-members in Runescape will discover an increase in bank size when they attain the membership status; which used to be an immense relief for players. 

Oldscape developers have since given both Members and Non-members a vast amount of extra banking space as a result of the player community calling for the change.  

Membership Bonds Old school bond

Old School bonds can be purchased with real world cash, or purchased in-game. These can be redeemed in-game for a period of Membership playtime. In other-words, one could make gold and play membership content for free!

Free-to-play serversEdit

Main article: Server

There are 12 free-to-play servers located in United States, United Kingdom and Germany. Four of the servers are themed and server 385 is so-called bot world and can't be accessed from the manual server selection list.
