Check the progress of your cache

Game versions: RS_Rune_final.pngApp_Icon-Circle.png

If your cache is not loaded fully it can reduce performance and cause lag, especially if you change areas suddenly, such as teleporting or going into an instanced area. 

Cache can load whilst you're playing but it will cause a noticeable performance drop, and will stop or slow down downloading if the client detects a significantly low FPS.

Check the progress of your cache to find out if this is what's causing your issue:

You can remove the overlay by typing 'displayfps' into the console again.

Your Disk Cache should be around 4 - 5GB when complete. 
If your cache is much lower than 4GB the text will likely be red or orange.
Allow your cache to load further before playing.
