Runescape Behind the Scenes August 2015
Epic Quest sera The light inside the heads-up this month, with a bunch of improvements to make player-owned housing, and a Ninja Prifddinas update the Fist of Guthix.
The Light Within
Our main update this month is the Light Within: a brand new Grandmaster quest to meet with one of the biggest rewards of players.
You will be working with the eleven clans to build sera to its former glory, assembling shards, again Freneskae and wrestling with some pretty difficult decisions that affect how she looks, acts and thinks - when you bring them successfully back , What will be your role in the old song of creation?
Rewards are suitably massive as we all new spells and prayers, designed to adapt Skiller and those who want to play a supporting role in group combat.
First up: Spells that are part of the old spellbook.
Combat spells are auroras, the direct damage spells with effects that extend your support options and prisms that are placeable, totem-like crystals to support the comrades and they create them from harm. There is also the strong shield dome to protect your friends, can be conjured up by the damage.
Skilling spells include crystallization, giving you increased lock a skilling nodes and thus the gain XP and stopping its resources can yield for the duration. There are the prism of divining that can enrich divine memories, and the rapid growth that makes you skip a growth phase for a plant, tree or herb.
Prayers, just as with the old curses bundled in.
Fight prayers include light and dark forms, the flush to increase the performance of your sera or Zaros spells and prayers. Fortitude is a refueling oriented prayer and provides great defense buffs at the expense of damage. Soul Link can take damage and healing with another player to share.
Skilling prayers include overheating form that can automatically smelt ore or burn logs or Chronicle absorption which instantly converts chronicles to XP.
Get ready as soon as the quest is to go, you will have the following conditions:
Plague The End
Fate of the Gods
The temple Senntisten
The World Wakes
This fantastic update was inspired by Lady Gaga, the winner RuneLabs quest survey earlier this year. Well done!

What is Behind the Scenes article?
Behind the scenes is a foretaste of the planned game updates which we hope to launch in the coming months.
But this is only a plan - not a promise - that a specific update will be released in a certain way or at a certain time. In order to get as soon as possible the highest quality updates that we usually keep on tweaking and testing right up until the moment before release, so sometimes things change or take a little longer than expected , We are not afraid to change our plans, if necessary, so we will not launch an update before it is finished.
