Game Versions: App_Icon-Circle.png

Group Ironman Mode allows you to bring a small party of friends along on your self-sufficient adventures. If you decide that you want to jump ship and start a new group or remove your Ironman status altogether, then follow these steps.

 

Leaving your Group (Group Member)
If you're a Group Member who wishes to leave their group:

  1. Head to The Node via the portal north of Lumbridge Castle
  2. Talk to Tony, The Group Iron Tutor, about managing your Ironman status, and select that you’d like to leave your Group
  3. Wait 7 days for your Group status to change (this wait cannot be bypassed due to security)
  4. Choose the new state for your account.  Check out Outcomes for more guidance

 

Leaving your Group (Group Leader)
Should you choose to leave your group, and you're currently the Group Leader – you’ll need to transfer your leadership before you can go.

  1. Head to The Node via the portal north of Lumbridge Castle
  2. Speak to Tony, the Group Iron Tutor, and request to step down from your leadership position
  3. You must select a new member of the group to become the new Group Leader. You will not be able to step down until this decision has been made, the new leader does not need to accept this position 
  4. Speak to Tony, the Group Iron Tutor again and request to leave the group
  5. Wait 7 days for the Leadership to pass to the chosen Group Member, and for your Group status to change (this wait cannot be bypassed due to security)
  6. Choose the new state for your account. Check out Outcomes for more guidance

 

Kicked from a Group
If you have been removed from your Group, then you will have a grace period of 7 days for the Group to reverse its decision, or for you to prepare your account for the next steps.  Please note, you will be unable to remove items from the Group Storage during the 7 day countdown period.

  1. Wait 7 days (this wait cannot be bypassed due to security)
  2. Choose the new state for your account.  Check out Outcomes for more guidance 

 

Outcomes
Once you've left your Group you'll be required to select one of two outcomes, you'll be unable to return to your original group once you've made this choice.

1. Keep your Group Iron status

  • You’ll be placed in a new group where you are the leader. You’ll keep your levels, stats, quests, variables and untradable items – but tradable items will be deleted
  • Your Group size will remain the same as it was in your previous Group, and only new accounts which haven’t left The Node yet will be able to join your new Group. Be aware, that new Group Members will be subject to the restrictions outlined in our Group Ironman Blog, including gradual wealth transfer and content restricted items. These restrictions will wear off after 5 weeks, then you'll be able to fully access all the content available to you and your Group
  • Please note, if you elect to keep your Group Ironman status while you are a Free to Play account, all Member's items whether tradeable or not will be removed from your account

2. Remove your Group Iron status

  • You’ll return to an unrestricted account. You'll keep all your levels, stats, quests, variables, untradeable items and tradable items
