Yak Track in the Oddment Store
A few spookily good items from Count Yakula’s Yak Track have risen once more and shambled their way into the Oddment Store! You can use your bits and pieces to purchase any of the following cosmetic items:
- Spooky Raven pet
- Abyssal Prowler pet
- Witch’s Doll pet
- Zak pet
- Arcane Blood Mage outfit
- Oathbreaker outfit
- Nevermore Stalker outfit
This week’s Patch Notes are anything but patchy, so here’s the highlights to get you started:
- Increased the value of certain upgraded items to ensure they were more valuable than their pre-upgrade counterparts.
- At the request of clue hunters, a teleport to Turael’s previous location in Taverley has been added to the Spell Book – it currently uses the Trollheim Teleport spell icon.
- Added the ability to sheathe and unsheathe weapons on mobile with a long press on the Combat Mode Toggle button.
You can see the full list of changes and fixes from this week in the dedicated Patch Notes post.
Archaeology Engagement Survey: Part Three
The third part of our Archaeology Engagement Survey is live now, and we’d appreciate it if you could take a look and tell us your thoughts!
Our aim here is to understand if we’re improving the ways we deliver information to you. This is why we’re asking for just 7-8 minutes of your time to answer a few questions and help us figure out how well we’re doing.
Since we know that your time is precious, we’re throwing in a special reward. Anyone who completes the survey will have the chance to win one of three six-month RuneScape membership packages. You’ve got to be in it to win it, though!
You can find the survey here. Thanks again for participating!
Archaeology x Razer Player Gallery Winners
Good news, everybody! After much deliberation, the RuneScape team have decided on the winners of the Archaeology Player Gallery.
In 1st place is HRH Violet, who wowed us all with an adorable knitted Archie plush. Give him a cuddle from us!
In second place, we have Zeveres, with this beautiful painting of Everlight. We love the colours in this one.
A Razer Kraken Ultimate gaming headset is winging its way to you two as we speak, along with six months of RuneScape membership. Enjoy!
Bunny Riven’s pylon art also called to us – which is why they’re walking away with third place, and three Bonds!
We just couldn’t choose between Teezkut’s incredible Imcando Mattock prop and Scarllet’s Kharid-et adventure – so both of them are tied for fourth place and will receive three Bonds each.
And in an unprecedented twist, there’s also a tie for fifth place! Congratulations to Nobuine and Suizzy, who have both won three Bonds.
Last but by no means least, we have our Honourable Mentions. Korzor22550, Kaitlyn, and Well Miller have all won Bonds. Well done!
You can see all of the winners down below.
Thank you to everyone who participated, and keep your eyes peeled for more chances to show off your skills in the Player Gallery!
