How to Check RuneScape Server Status

While many things could contribute to a total server outage in RuneScape, there are ways to be sure that is indeed the problem.

The first step to determining if the servers are currently experiencing problems is to visit Down Detector. This site gathers reports from players all over, so what you see is real people having issues as proof there is an issue. While this won’t give you any update on a fix, it does at least show that the problem is widespread to some degree.

Your second destination should be the Runescape Service Update Archive. This site will tell you if maintenance is currently running on the game.

If that doesn’t have anything to help you, the official Twitter accounts for both Runescape and Old School RuneScape should be the place you check next.
