The Queen of Thieves & The Depths of Despair
This week's game update sees the lore of Zeah further explored with the arrival of two new novice quests. A stunning new Boss lair display arrives following the release of Grotesque Guardians. Plus our usual array of QoL changes and fixes.
The Queen of Thieves
The gangs of Kourend have recently been uniting under a mysterious figure called the Queen of Thieves, some in Port Piscarilius. This novice quest tasks the player with infiltrating the gangs of Kourend in order to find the Queen of Thieves. Completion of the quest rewards players with the following:
The Depths of Despair
Artur Hosidius has gone missing and Lord Kandur Hosidius needs the players help to find his son and bringing him home in this new novice quest. Completion of the quest rewards players with the following:
Completion of the Client of Kourend quest now yields the Kharedst's Memoirs book as a reward. The item can be obtained Veos, found on the Piscarilius dock. The Memoirs is a wieldable item and is used to teleport around Kourend. Kharedst's Memoirs requires you to add specific pages to the book in order to be able to access associated teleports.
You must first charge the book before you can teleport. To charge the book you must visit Old Memorial and 'Inspect' the statue, or 'Use' Kharedst's Memoirs on the statue. When a page is added to the book there are 8 charges also added. All other charges requires 1x Body rune, 1x Law rune, 1x Mind rune, and 1x Soul rune. 10 Magic xp is given for each charge added to the book.
The Bandos godsword, along with the Bandos godsword (or), has had its special attack cost reduced 65% to 50%. This polled buff now brings the sword in alignment with the three other Godswords, the special attacks of which all consume 50% of the special attack bar. No changes have been made to its stats.
The Jar of stone, obtainable the Grotesque Guardians, can now be added to the Boss lair display in the Achievement Gallery of your Player-owned house.
