The tick is the fundamental quantum of time used in RuneScape. It is a unit equal to length of 0.6 seconds. All actions that require server processing are governed by this value. Purely client-side actions (such as opening a right-click menu) are processed separately, and thus unaffected by the tick.

Cannons demonstrate game ticks clearly, rotating 45° every tick

Each action you register within one tick, will start to take place by the beginning of the next tick.

The length of a tick can be measured by timing a repeated action. For example, Disassembly takes 2 ticks (1.2 seconds) per item.

ExamplesEdit

Combat
Attack speed, the time between attacks
Global ability cooldown is 3 ticks
Skills

Production skills can make 1 item every X number of ticks, with the interval varying based on the action
Other
Walking moves 1 square every game tick; running, 2 squares.
