Curse.com has released a full item, quest, NPC, spell, and recipe database for RoM players. As a player you can also automatically upload a profile of your character to the site using the Curse Client. Your use of the Curse Client will allow us to collect and upload valuable information from the game, while also allowing you to access an enormous database of quests, items, and of course your own personal profile. A picture is worth a thousand words; so here's a few screenshots to help us display the wealth of information readily available for you at RunesDB.com:
How does it work?
Our data collection is done via a small application which runs on Windows. It sits quietly in your system tray, periodically sending information on entities (monsters and npcs), items, quests, your profile, and various other small bits of information to the ROMDB. The client poses no security threat to your system and we do not collect any personal information such as email addresses or passwords.
The client itself is not a hack and does not provide any advantage over other players. All it does is collect harmless information about objects in the game.
What do we collect?
As stated above, we only collect what is necessary for our database, no personal information or passwords are collected. Data collected from the game includes:
- Your character's profile
- Item statistics
- Entity information (NPCs, interactable objects, monsters), including what they drop and where they spawn
- Quest information, including which entities give you quests, and which complete them
- Zone information
How can I help?
To submit data to the ROMDB will first need to register for an account. Once you have an account, you may then download the installer. After installation you will be asked for your username and password, enter your CurseID username and password, not your game account login. Once done the client will work on it's own. You can check its status and change any configuration by using the icon in your system tray.
