Minimap icon tableEdit
This concise icon table is useful when a player wishes to identify an icon on the minimap. It is sorted alphabetically from left to right, top to bottom.
- The General store icon () was changed to () on 8 May 2007, perhaps to clarify that they only sell empty pots, not pots of flour.
- The All Fired Up Beacon (), Commander Yodri himself (), the goblin raids () and the demon mob boss () were the only icons that are not encircled before 10 March 2014.
- Since Easter 2011, the Holiday Event Icon has not been showing in the World Map Icon Key. This has since been fixed.
- Unlisted icons:
