Why You Need a VPN for RuneScape

Why You Need a VPN for RuneScape

Let's start with plain old security. A VPN works by routing your traffic through a VPN server in the location of your choice. This has the dual benefits of hiding your IP address (and thus your location) from anyone on the other end, and encrypting all traffic between your computer and the VPN server.

A VPN can help you stay anonymous, protect you from DDoS attacks, keep your ISP from throttling game traffic, and even bypass networks that might block RuneScape, like at work or school.

Even better, VPNs can help you to get better, more stable connections to game servers by bypassing congested networks, bad ISP configurations, and more. In some rare cases, they can even lower your ping. RuneScape might not be a Twitch shooter but lag still matters, and a VPN can potentially help you reduce it.

CyberGhost VPN Lets You Grind Wherever You Are

CyberGhost VPN has a worldwide network of blazing-fast servers in 100 countries. That means you can always route your traffic to a VPN server close to RuneScape's game servers. When you connect to a server, CyberGhost VPN will automatically look for the fastest route from your computer to your chosen location.

This allows CyberGhost to bypass a lot of potential network issues, and sometimes even make your connection faster than it would be without a VPN. Whatever your character dies to, out in the world, it won't be lag. You can still blame the lag, though.


Download a VPN for RuneScape on Any Gaming Device

"New" RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are both available on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. CyberGhost VPN has native apps for every one of those platforms. That means getting started is simple - sign up and download CyberGhost VPN on your platform of choice.

Then connect to a VPN server that's close to your RuneScape server (the RuneScape wiki has a list), and dive into your adventures. And heck, if RuneScape ever comes to consoles, CyberGhost supports those too, via VPN-enabled routers. It covers everything.

In short, digital data is supposed to take the most direct possible route from your computer to the game servers and back. It doesn’t always. VPNs can bypass congested and badly configured servers and networks by automatically looking for the fastest route between your computer and the VPN server you selected.

This is why you want to select a VPN server that’s as close as possible to the game servers.

Why CyberGhost Is the Best VPN for RuneScape

CyberGhost makes a great RuneScape VPN, and a great gaming VPN in general, for several reasons:

Nothing is more frustrating than dying and losing your stuff because one little bit of data didn’t make it to the game server on time. CyberGhost VPN’s fleet of servers is designed for speed, so you can game, watch your shows – be honest with yourself, it’s Crunchyroll – and download a new game in the background without slowing down RuneScape.

CyberGhost VPN also has some servers specifically tuned for gaming in New York, London, Frankfurt, and Paris, if you happen to be gaming on servers near those locations. If not, no worries, the regular servers will work just fine.

Never Worry About DDoS Attacks

Never Worry About DDoS Attacks

While neither the RuneScape nor Old School RuneScape clients will just expose your IP to other players, people can still get that information. If you join an online community website, a dodgy private server, or use a peer-to-peer VOIP app, you might still be exposed, and that can lead to DDoS attacks and other issues.

CyberGhost hides your IP address when routing your traffic through a VPN server, meaning that no one can target your network directly. The servers also have DDoS attack mitigation, so you shouldn’t even see lag while playing.

CyberGhost uses military-grade encryption to protect all of the data sent between your computer and the VPN server. That means anyone spying on the local wi-fi at school, work, or the coffee shop won’t be able to steal your RuneScape account data, or anything else… as long as they’re not looking over your shoulder.

VPNs are a good idea for anything you want to do on public Wi-Fi. That same encryption will help you get around blocks on the game itself, and any game traffic throttling your ISP might do.

Absolutely! There’s nothing in the terms and conditions that precludes VPN use, and most of the reputable options should work fine. There is a caveat: the system has been known to target some free VPNs in particular that are used by people trying to cheat or game the system. Use one of the good gaming VPNs, play fair, and it should all work out fine.

We recommend CyberGhost for several reasons. For starters, it has a global network of fast VPN servers in 100 countries, so you can always get a smooth connection to RuneScape’s servers. Then there’s the industry standard encryption, a wealth of other security features, gaming optimized servers, and a 45-day money back guarantee.

This could happen for several reasons. First, make sure you’re not using a free VPN. On top of them being unreliable, RuneScape’s anti-cheat systems tend to target them. It could also be because there’s a random connection issue, or that specific IP is banned. In both cases, try a different VPN server and see if the game starts to work.

As a matter of fact, yes. You can even access the RuneLite client through Jagex’s own launcher application. Just make sure to select “RuneLite” under the “Client” dropdown menu. Jagex’s support for fan projects is one of the things that’s kept RuneScape alive for so long, so you can expect this to continue to work.

You just go to the Jagex website, and choose to sign up! You’re going to need the usual standard things: a valid email address, your birthday, etc. You can also go back later and create new characters attached to the same account. Note that if you’re playing on a Steam account, you can only connect one character from your Jagex account to it.

Yes. Let’s be clear, any game you play can track your IP address if you aren’t using a VPN to hide it. And yes, Jagex has been known to monitor IP addresses to ban multiple accounts made by bad actors, cheaters, and anyone else they deem a detriment to the community. Again, play fair, and it really shouldn’t be an issue.

Jagex was most recently sold in February of 2024, to the Luxembourg-based private equity firm CVC Capital Partners. This was its fourth sale in eight years. Even so, Runescape appears to be going strong, even if it’s not the cultural juggernaut it was in decades past. That’s right, decades. It was first released in 2001.

Probably not. The concern is perfectly understandable, given that Runescape Classic was shut down in 2018. But Old School RuneScape, its replacement of sorts, definitely seems to have life in it. The sheer passion of the RuneScape community might keep it alive after Jagex is done with it, but they’re not done with it yet. Too many people love the old style.
