Game Update: Farming & Herblore 120 Fixes
We suspect that, like us, you’re all busy raising dinosaurs and brewing potions, and are generally engaged in all sorts of 120-themed Gielinorian activity. But if you can spare us a few minutes, we’ve got a few changes to Farming and Herblore 120 to tell you about and an update on the Activity Pets competition!
Are you all having fun on your journey to 120? Well, be prepared to have even more now that we’ve fixed a few cheeky bugs that had cropped up:
We’ve also had a look at some older content this week, including the Mining and Smithing rework and Araxxor. Take a look:
Having announced the decision to move from Java to NXT earlier this month, we wanted to let you know that we will be shutting down RuneScape's legacy Java client from December 18th 2019.
Closing the Java client means we can focus on the far superior NXT version, which offers users loads of benefits such as better performance, increased draw distances and enhanced graphics.
But fear not! If you're still playing the game on Java, it has has never been easier to switch to NXT. Providing you're not using an older, legacy operating system, you shouldn't have any problems.
For the small number of players who own much older machines or are running dated versions of Windows and still encounter issues, you can find more information in the Technical Help section of the Support Centre. From there you'll also be able to get in touch if you require further assistance.
The closure of the RuneScape Java client will NOT affect players using NXT. Old School players are not affected..
You know what we’re thankful for this year? What, long life and good health? Yeah whatever. We’re more concerned with Black Friday deals, thanks very much! We’ve got two major offers in the Merch Store right now:
Why not bundle up warm with one of two new hoodies, featuring the Bob’s Brilliant Axes design from RuneFest and the Draconic Visage? Or maybe you’d rather show your allegiance with one of the Phase Two God Wars Dungeon pins and keyrings from AngelsScapes?
For a limited time only, you can get Nex, Nex: Angel of Death, K’ril, and Kree’arra pins. Plus, if you missed out on everyone’s favourite ourg last time, you can take home a General Graardor keyring.
Our Christmas 2019 exclusives include the Wise Old Man keyring, the Festive Noob pin, and the snuggly Seasonal Sweater. If you’re feeling lucky, why not try the Christmas Cracker keyring? 50 of them have been lasered with the rarest drop of them all, an original Party Hat. Will you be fortunate enough to find one?
What are the next steps?
It’s now time for our teams to select their favourite designs. And as we said, we’ll focus on creative ideas rather than artistic talent. We will then announce that shortlist in our weekly live stream, on Tuesday 3rd December, and those will be polled in-game a few days after so you can all select a worthy winner for each category (i.e. Clue Scroll, Area, Moneymaking, RuneScore).
What about the competition?
Simple, the polls will decide on the 4 winners! Once the polls are closed, winners will be announced in our following weekly news post, and they’ll each receive a 6-Month RuneScape Membership & unique LARP Godsword.
Our live streams are always a great opportunity to grab some awesome in-game prizes. As we’re sure you enjoy the extra resources from The Land Out of Time, we thought that it would be nice to finally bring some “Thanksgivy” feeling to the party. Starting this week until the end of November, each and every RuneScape stream watched will give you a random drop from one of the following:
Chance based (if unowned):
Basic Drop Table: Prismatic small fallen star, Prismatic medium fallen star, Prismatic small lamp, Prismatic medium lamp, Spirit Ruby, Spirit Diamond, Advanced Pulse Core, Spring, Silverhawk down, Medium DG Token Box, Small DG Token Box, Uncut Dragonstone, Large Cash Bag, Medium Cash Bag or Small Cash Bag.
Exciting isn’t it?! So don’t wait up - connect your RS account to your Twitch account and find out more here. Once that’s done, have fun and watch our streams during the day for a guaranteed drop.
Aaaah the weather outside is finally frightful! You could say such excitement is odd, but that’s without knowing how December content is delightful! With the Advent Calendar already dropping Christmassy loot every day and some even more gielinorian festivities on the way, ooooh this is gonna be one merry Christmas we must say. And we’ll have a first dip with this week’s stream!
But wait, we’ve made some rather troubling discoveries… No, we’re not talking about the robotic movements of your characters – which by the way, will find a swift solution in just a matter of days thanks to the Smooth Movement update. It is said that Professor Tony's Archaeology Journal reveals information about a portal-like structure of aviansie design, engraved with the word ‘Stormguard’. Surely there’s more info to DIG in that journal…
LootScape will be enabled (see all details above).
This week, our featured streamer is RS_Nate! Join him for an Ironman PvM session with Telos, Araxxor, Nex, Elite Dungeons 2 and more!
This featured stream is also an opportunity to grab a LootScape! That’s right, you can now receive in-game loot when you watch a RuneScape streamer. It works exactly the same way as our official streams, just watch RS_Nate‘s stream on (his Twitch channel) and you’ll receive the LootScape the following day.
LootScape will be enabled (see all details above).
