The Members Loyalty Programme was released on 28 June 2011. It was first announced in the Behind of the Scenes of June 2011. Loyalty Points are an additional reward for being a Member of RuneScape. Players with pending or existing subscriptions will receive Loyalty Points for their remaining days of membership, but will not earn these points for the days before the actual update. On the release date of the Loyalty Programme, players were given a discount on most items in the rewards shop for a limited amount of time.
Loyalty Points can be spent on a various range of rewards, including emotes, costumes, and items for the new Aura slot. All rewards are simply cosmetic, with the exception of the auras which enhance gameplay in many different aspects and the wicked pouch, which can store rune energy and affect the use of the Magic skill. Concurrent members accumulate points at a higher rate than the players who only subscribe occasionally, so that the very loyal players can earn their rewards faster. Items, emotes, costumes, colour changes and titles can be bought from Xuan east of the Warrior's Guild in Burthorpe or in Varrock Square.
Loyalty Points accrue more quickly the longer a player has membership. For the first month, players receive 500 points. The next month, they will get 3,000, then 5,000 the next, followed by 7,000. From there it increases by 1,000 per month, to finally, after a year's continuous subscription, stop at 15,000 points per month. There is a 7 day grace period in which to continue to subscribe, at which point the number of points per month will drop down to the amount from two months ago (eg. if a player subscribes for 6 months and then waits 10 days to resubscribe, he/she would get points for the 4th month). If players do not re-subscribe after 30 days, they will drop down to 500 points for the month they next subscribe.
As revealed in the December 2011 BTS, there was a 12 Days of Christmas event between 25 December 2011 and 5 January 2012, wherein players were able to earn 500 points on each day that they logged into a members world (if signed up to the Loyalty Programme), for a total of 6,000 points if they logged in on each of the twelve days.
The shop was updated on 3 September 2013 and merged with Solomon's General Store, allowing some items from both stores to be purchased with each others' currency. The gazes and clothing were changed into cosmetic skin overrides. The only items that could be purchased from Xuan were Auras and colour changes.
The following table shows how many points are earned, when the player is a member for an 'x' amount of months.
|Points earned||Total points earned|
|2||3,000 + 1,500||5,000|
|3||5,000 + 2,500||12,500|
|4||7,000 + 2,500||22,000|
|5||8,000 + 2,500||32,500|
|6||9,000 + 5,000||46,500|
|7||10,000 + 5,000||61,500|
|8||11,000 + 6,000||78,500|
|9||12,000 + 7,000||97,500|
|10||13,000 + 8,000||118,500|
|11||14,000 + 9,000||141,500|
|12||15,000 + 15,000||171,500|
|13||15,000 + 15,000||201,500|
|14||15,000 + 15,000||231,500|
|15||15,000 + 15,000||261,500|
|16||15,000 + 15,000||291,500|
|17||15,000 + 15,000||321,500|
|18||15,000 + 20,000||356,500|
|19-23||5(15,000 + 15,000)||506,500|
|24||15,000 + 20,000||541,500|
Note: the total points earned is without counting the bonus points that are given during events.
After the first 12 months, you will receive 15,000 bonus points a month. Every 6 months, this is increased to 20,000 before returning to the normal bonus of 15,000.
Auras improve gameplay in many different ways, including effects with Combat, Fishing, and Agility. Other auras serve no practical purpose. They all have a particle effect that glows when the aura is active. This particle effect does not show on a free-to-play server. They are equipped in the aura slot, and are activated by clicking Activate aura. All of them have an activation time, which shows how long they last, and a cooldown time, which shows how long it takes to be used again. This is clock time and still counts down even if you log out. If they are lost, they can be replaced by Xuan. Only one aura can be used at once.
Many auras designed for use in Combat cannot be used in PvP combat, only in PvM.
If you un-equip the Aura, you cannot use it again until it is recharged.
All auras that were released with the first update except for Jack of trades had a reduced price for the first two weeks, when the original price was decreased to 400 loyalty points.
Before you purchase any aura of Tier Two or Three with (a) counterpart(s) of a lower tier you must buy the lower tiered version(s) first.

Various Items can have their colours changed by using them on Xuan. There are four new colours for each item. Once coloured, an item cannot be traded to other players until it is changed back to its original colour by talking to Xuan.

|Robin hood hat||1,000|

- The next time users log in after they have registered to the Members Loyalty Programme, a box is displayed, asking the players if they would like to view the shop, giving the option of being teleported to the shop in Burthorpe or Varrock centre.
- On the day of release, due to the mass popularity of the programme, the additional load on the website caused technical issues to areas of the site related to this update.
- On 6 September 2011, the mercenary leader, mercenary mage, mercenary ranger, and mercenary warrior were placed in north of Falador wearing items from the loyalty programme.
- It will take 3,168,750 points to unlock everything in the shop assuming rewards aren't purchased when they are discounted. It would take a total of 216 months or 18 years to unlock everything in the shop, assuming membership is kept running the entire time and no additional points are received from promotional events. At the current rate of 7.95 per month, this would cost 1717.20.
- The only title currently available in Xuan's shop that is in a different language is "Wunderkind", which translates to "Child Prodigy" in German.
- The title Duderino could be a reference to the movie "The Big Lebowski", in which Jeff Bridges' character, Jeff Lebowski AKA The Dude, lists various things to call him, relating to the word "dude", including "duderino". It could also be a reference to the Simpsons. The character Ned Flanders says words that end in "idly" doodly" "rino" etc.
