Kags is a famous portmaster known for his colossal guide on Player Owned Ports and the Arc Region: Kags' POP Encyclopedia V5, as well as his progress in pushing the limits of Shattered Worlds.

He was added as an NPC to the game in June 2017 with the release of the city of Menaphos.[1] Both his title and name were added as the NPC Portmaster Kags located in the Ports district of Menaphos and responsible for ferrying players to numerous locations across the desert as well as starting the journey to become your own slayer master.

He is the first and currently only player to reach world 500 in Shattered Worlds.[2] He is responsible for suggesting multiple improvements and fixes that have been implemented to the combat minigame (mobs past world 115 giving full combat XP; pets displaying highest world reached when overriding familiars, etc).

Guides to Player Owned Ports

Since the release of Player Owned Ports in 2012, he has written guides on it for half a decade. Over the years, the information accumulated into an encyclopedia which constantly grows larger as time passes and is still updated multiple times a week.

- Kags V1 had 20 sections.
- Kags V2 had 40 sections.
- Kags V3 had 60 sections.
- Kags V4 had 80 sections.
- Kags V5 had 180 sections.
- Kags V6 (work in progress) will have 220 sections.

Step-by-step guides (includes both recommended crew and recommended buy order for each region of Ports, Arc-Shield region guides), analyses of mechanics, tips & tricks, various hiscores, Ports Completionists, GE prices, etc. for Player Owned Ports as well as The Arc an be found in the encyclopedia. The guides on Kags V5 are even used by Jagex staff. [3][4]

Hiscores include Ports Completionist (requirements that span the entire scope and breadth of all ports content), Resource Hiscores for the top 5 players in each category, as well as past hiscores of those who reached the highest distance/port score fastest right after the Player Owned Ports release, as well as Ports V2 and Ports V3 expansions.

Influence on Ports & Eastern Lands

He is responsible for numerous Ports suggestions like fixes & additions & improvements, including important ones such as playing Ports anywhere on RS through Captain's Log, changing the degradation system of Ports armor to last much longer, Fleet Admiral title, seeing XP needed for next level of crew and captains, etc.

He helped pushed for the release of the Eastern Lands (Arc region) on the Power Player Poll that came out on January 15, 2016, and received multiple Jagex comments.[5] Eastern Lands - The Arc Region later won the player vote by a huge margin and was released in 2 batches: batch 1 in July 2016 and batch 2 in October 2016.[6]

He successfully pushed for 3 RuneLabs ideas to be put into Runescape 2017 Survey, which players vote on in May-June 2016 to determine the major game content updates of 2017. His 4th RuneLabs idea, Elite Sailing Skill, got denied since 2017 was too early to release another skill right after Invention in 2016.
