- NOTE: <ALT-F4>, <CTRL-F4>, <ALT-ESC> and <CTRL-W> immediately logs you off Runescape, even if your character was in combat. The combat continues, and if the monster dies any monster drops are immediately available to other nearby players.
If you die from the combat, you drop all your items under a Gravestone, based on the rules for items carried and for your current location, and when you will log back in you will be at your respawn point (Lumbridge, Falador, or Camelot). In addition, as your gravestone only lasts until you log out, it will then immediately disappear.
Otherwise, you will log back in to the location where you were standing when you logged off using <ALT-F4>, <CTRL-F4>, <ALT-ESC> or <CTRL-W>.
