There are many banks all throughout RuneScape. Banks are useful for storing many valuable and non-valuable items to keep them safe. Setting up a Bank PIN will keep your valuables even safer.
The first thing you need to do when using your bank is to set up a bank PIN. This number is used to keep your bank much safer. You may set up your PIN number (Personal Identification Number) at almost any bank in RuneScape.
To set up a bank PIN, go to a bank in RuneScape (Non-Members or Members). Not all banks will allow you to set up a Bank PIN. Talk to a banker and tell him or her that you would like to check your PIN settings.
A Bank PIN settings screen will pop up, select "Set A Pin".
Now, select "Yes, I really want a Bank PIN. I will never forget it!."
The next screen will prompt you to enter the Bank PIN you would like to use. Select the digits of your Bank PIN. To ensure you that you clicked one of the numbers, a helpful reminder has been added to the top right hand corner of the corner.
One of the 4 "?" marks will change into a "*", each time you enter a digit. Due to security reasons the numbers will change order while you enter the digits.
Note: Do not use your birthday, cellphone PIN or real-life bank PIN as your RuneScape Bank PIN as some of your friends or relatives might know this information and might try to hack into your bank account.
If you enter a too easy PIN number (f.e.: 3333), the following message will appear.
Once you have entered your Bank PIN, you will be prompted to enter it once more as a confirmation. Due to security reason, you will have to wait seven days before you will be able to use your Bank PIN. Even if your Bank PIN is pending, you will be able to access your bank, but you will be asked if you have set a Bank PIN and if you want to continue.
If you enter the wrong Bank PIN, the following message will appear.
When you have created your Bank PIN you may use the settings menu to check on the status of your Bank PIN. Simply talk to a banker to access your Bank PIN settings. You can use this menu if you wish to delete your (pending) Bank PIN, change your Bank PIN or want to change how long it will take to recover a lost PIN.
Banks are used to store many items. You may check how many items you have in your bank by looking in the upper right hand corner of the bank interface. Non-members have a total of 68 bank slots, while members have a total of 496 bank slots. To access your bank account simply select "Use Bank booth" or Use-quickly Bank booth in any bank.
To store an item in your bank, click on the item in your inventory you want to deposit. It wil then appear in your bank. To store more than one of an item right-click the item and choose the number you would like to deposit.
To withdraw an item from your bank, click on the item in your bank and it will appear in your inventory. To withdraw more than one of an item right-click the item and choose the amount you would like to withdraw.
You may also check on your Grand Exchange offers at a bank by selecting "Collect Bank booth".
Bank tabs will help you to organize your bank. You may have up to 8 bank tabs at a time. The "All" tab, marked with the 'infinity' symbol, will show you every item and tab that you have in your bank. To add a new tab, drag an item into the tab marked with the "+" sign. The first item you drag, will then appear in the tab and will mark the tab. To add more items to that tab simply drag more items into it. If you click on any tab it will show the items you have moved to it. To remove a tab, right-click the and select "Collapse tab". If you remove a tab all the items that were in that tab will moved to the "All" tab. A tab will also be removed if you remove all the items from it.
At the bottom of the Bank interface you will find a number of buttons that will help you in using your bank.
Use this button to select how you want to sort your items. If you have chosen "swap", the item you drag on top of another item, will swap positions in your bank. The option "insert" will enable you to place items in between two other items.
If you wish to carry large amounts of non-stackable items with you, you may use this button to note the items. Remember that you will not be able use the items in their noted form. You will however be able to trade or drop the items.
Searching Your Bank:
As your bank starts to get full, it will become harder to find an item. You may use the search feature to search for an item in your bank. To search for an item click this button and type in the item you want to search for.
If you have various items in your inventory, you may use this button if you wish to bank all the items in your inventory in one click.
You may use this button if you wish to bank all the items that you are wearing on you.
