You know that shiny red dragon defender that so many people have been suggesting on the forums? Well, from today, you can get one from the noble custodians of the Warriors' Guild...that is if you already own a rune defender and spend some more time in Kamfreena's cyclops room.

While in that room after a dragon defender, the cyclopes may just have had enough of you killing off their brethren, and call in their bigger, meaner brother-in-arms – the cyclossus. He's no pushover, and you’ll need a rune or dragon defender equipped, but should you be able to defeat him you’ll find yourself well rewarded!

To aid you in gaining a dragon defender, the other trainers at the Warriors' Guild have made some small tweaks to their own training rooms. For instance, you'll find that your Strength level and stance really makes a difference when throwing the shot, and Jimmy's added a little extra challenge when you’re wearing your alcoholic headpiece.

You'll also no longer have to carry around bagfuls of tokens, as they are now just kept track of in a handy interface. You can also use a new multi-token mode in the cyclops room, which will give you more time in there, increasing your chances of receiving a dragon defender.

In other news...

The penguin spies have decided to mix things up and have hence become a little less predictable. They are also scoping out a couple of new areas...

Sounds when attacking NPCs and players have been updated to play louder sounds depending on how hard you are hit, and playing no sound if you take no damage.


The following small fixes and adjustments have now been made to the game. If you spot any further bugs in-game, please use the Bug Report feature ('Submit a Bug Report' under the 'Help' drop-down menu of the website).

Graphical

* Items no longer float above tables in Draynor.
* Mosquito hit bars no longer jump when attacking them.
* Dogs have had their animations updated.
* Unicorns now stand on hills correctly.

Audio


* The Hope Devourer music track is now correctly ordered in the music list.


Quests and Tasks


* The Tasks interface now correctly recognises the locality north of Edgeville.
* The Desert Mining Camp’s gates now allow players to enter from wherever they are standing.
* Using a seed pod during Do No Evil now gives players a more descriptive message before teleporting.


Activities and Distractions


* Lighting and putting out Castle Wars barricades now uses a cool-down to prevent un-explodable barriers.

* Using vials on the altar in the Shades of Mort’ton activity now automatically uses all vials.


Miscellaneous


* God bows now correctly state that they can fire up to rune arrows.

* Advisor Ghrim no longer refers to himself using a debug name.
* Dialog for adding spikes to rock climbing boots has been updated to explain why Tenzig won't spike them.
* The Smithing skill guide has been updated to reflect the difference between runite ore and rune bars.

From the KB:

By fighting and defeating cyclopes, you gain a chance that they will drop a defender, among other items. The first defender you get will always be bronze. When you have this, return to Kamfreena and show her it. When you enter again, she will say that the cyclopes will now drop the next one up (iron). Again, you will have to kill them until you are lucky enough to receive this drop. Continue this for steel, black, mithril, adamant, rune and finally dragon. The hallowed dragon defender is much more likely to be dropped by a cyclossus, which can only be defeated while wielding a dragon or rune defender.

Note the bolded part. Does this mean that normal cyclopes can still drop the dragon defender? Hmm Hmm Hmm.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

sounds like the cyclossus is a one-monster in the cyclops room. UGH. It is going to be so packed in there.

EDIT:

Just read this: You will have a greater chance of fighting a cyclossus

Seems like it will appear after you kill a certain amount of cylcops
