RuneScape Private Servers (also known as "RSPS") have been around almost as long as RuneScape itself. Many players prefer to play RSPS over RuneScape because they find it more fun and some don't have the time to devote to RuneScape in order to get the items and levels they desire. RSPS offers them more entertainment.
We have provided several tips for players who are not familiar with RSPS or are unsure how to start.
There are many reasons to choose RSPS over RuneScape.
No membership fees (on most servers, if any) Faster experience rates
Faster drop rates
A smaller, tighter-knit community
It is easier to rank on the Hiscores
These custom features can be anything from RuneScape minigames to fully customized servers with guns or vehicles. They are much less common.
These are the main categories of RSPS:
Oldschool servers (2007 RuneScape / OSRS)
Servers pre-EOC (2011 RuneScape).
Custom servers (typically a combination of the above categories).
These are the top and most reliable private servers as of the writing of this article:
Alora (OldSchool), active since 2016.
Ikov (Pre-EOC active since 2019).
RoatPKz (OldSchool PK) has been active since 2015.
RuneWild (OldSchool PK active since 2018)
RuneX (OldSchool) - Active since 2017
Playing on the oldest and largest private servers is generally safe. There are many players who trust them and there is no risk of anyone playing.
RSPS is a safe game. Here are some tips to help you stay safe.
Only play the biggest servers (top five preferably).
Play on RSPSs that have been around for more than 1 year
Use a different password for RuneScape and other communities. It is best to use a unique password.
You should not use the same username on RuneScape.
Do not download third-party apps such as bots, autoclickers or others.
These rules will make it easy to play RSPS.
