LootShare is an entirely optional way for players, and their clan members, to share monsters' item drops in multi-combat areas. This was introduced on 16 October 2007.

In order to turn on LootShare, a player must be in a Clan Chat in which the owner has enabled LootShare. Then, click the icon of two money bags in the top right corner of the Clan Chat menu. After a two-minute wait, LootShare will be enabled.

No matter how much damage the player dealt to the monster, if they are in the clan's LootShare, and they are within 16 squares of the defeated monster, then they will automatically be considered for rewards. The sharing of items is fair, and is designed to ensure that everyone receives an equivalent amount of luck with their rewards over a period of time. It works by calculating the value from the Grand Exchange. Then, each player gets a share of that value commonly called "Lootshare Potential" or LSP. The system chooses which player receives the drop, and that player pays for it with LSP. This reduces the player's chance of getting the next drop, ensuring fairness.

All members in the clan must have LootShare on.

Contrary to popular belief, the Ring of Wealth does NOT affect drops while LootShare is on.[1] The chances of getting a drop increases every time someone else in a clan gets a drop. In this manner, lootshare points may be accumulated over time, but are automatically reduced by 10% per day. [2]

The worlds available for "LootShare"-ing are: 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 22, 28, 29, 30, 33, 34, 37, 39, 40, 41, 43, 44, 46, 47, 48, 51, 52, 56, 59, 64, 76, 84, 85, 88, 91, 92, 94, 95, 97, 98, 106, 108, 112, 113, 117, 120, 126, 127, 131, 134, 142, 145, 151, 153, 154, 155, 157, and 158.

Charms have a value even though they are untradeable. Abyssal and Obsidian charms are worth 1GP. Gold, Green, Crimson, and Blue charms are worth 100GP.

Trivia

  • If a player attempts to activate LootShare on a world it cannot be activated on, they will receive the second longest game message in RuneScape. The message is as follows: "LootShare is unavailable in this world. If you wish to lootshare, logout and select a lootshare enabled world from the world specify menu." This message is shorter only to the one displayed when disabling the warning sign popups that appear in dangerous areas of the game. The message reads: "You have toggled this warning screen off. You will not see this warning screen unless you speak to the Doomsayer in Lumbridge to turn it on again."
