Time here is in the context of Distractions and Diversions rewards or any other event which requires a certain waiting time. The term tomorrow or one day is not exactly the same depending upon the event; however, a "day" in Runescape is equivalent to a day in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC/GMT):

Events that reset weekly at other timesEdit
- Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza resets weekly on Wednesday between 0:00 and 1:00 (UTC), at approximately the time that the server has been running for an integral number of hours. For example, if a game update is released at 10:37 Tuesday morning (UTC), the circus will reset shortly after 0:37 Wednesday.
- Penguin Hide and Seek resets weekly on Wednesday between 0:00 and 1:00 (UTC), at approximately the time that the server has been running for an integral number of hours.
- Meg returns to your Player-owned port weekly Wednesday after 0:00 (UTC).

Variable wait timeEdit
- The wait time for the full grown jade vine is about 12 hours with a large range (10 to 24 hours) with another 3 hours (range 2–4 hours) to the slayer stage.
- A new Evil tree begins to grow every 1 – 4 hours. The time is random and is not synchronised across all game worlds. (player rewards are limited to two Evil Trees per day, see above). Actual regrowth on any particular world begins 2 hours after the previous tree is killed or dies of its own accord on that world. These times are reset after a game update, and then become unsynchronized due to variances in the time at which the tree dies on each world.
