Rule 12 prohibited Real World Item Trading. It was one of the original Rules of Conduct, but as of 11 May 2009, this rule now falls under the Honour category. This rule encompassed the purchase of in-game items for real world money. The most commonly traded items included coins, runes, food, raw materials, and even rare or discontinued items. Due to the severe nature of real world item trading, players who were caught breaking Rule 12 were almost always issued either a permanent ban by Jagex.
NOTE: Although it is no longer possible issue a report for real world item trading, it is still against the rules, and the punishments for guilty parties remain the same.
