Loyalty Additions:

A fourth batch of loyalty auras, emotes, titles, recolours and outfits have arrived at Xuan’s store, ready for you to purchase with your Loyalty Points.

Highlights from the Spring/Summer collection include 20 new auras, two of which are brand new. ‘Invigorate’ recharges your special attack at a rate of an additional 20% at tier 1, and an additional 60% at tier 4. ‘Harmony’, meanwhile, is a variation on ‘Corruption’ and ‘Salvation’, with a neat twist of having Guthix-themed wings. For those who have scrimped and saved, we can offer tier 4 versions of all existing auras.

For those who like to skulk moodily in the shadows and scare their friends, we can offer cosmetic auras that make your eyes glow in a choice of 8 colours.

Without ruining the surprise, we can also announce the following additions: another 6 titles, including ‘the Undefeated’; 2 new costumes (a wee hint: if you howl at the moon or you like your ears pointy, you’ll appreciate them); 3 new recolours including options for the Ancient Staff; and 4 new emotes, including the ROFLcopter (you’ll need the ROFL emote to make this beauty work).

The eagle-eyed among you will also spot a permanent price reduction on many auras. If you’ve already purchased and upgraded auras at the old prices, don’t worry; we’ll be applying a Loyalty Point refund to your account within the next few days. There are a fair few accounts to go through, though, so please be patient.

Our current special offers-valid until the 31st of March-are a 50% discount on auras and items from the first Loyalty Programme batch, and 25% off auras and items from the second batch. If you’re owed any Loyalty Points in accordance with the price reduction, you’ll have them in plenty of time to take advantage of these offers!

If you are yet to sign up to the programme, please click here or visit the RuneScape homepage (select "Members Loyalty Programme" from the Account drop-down menu).

Lodestone Network (free and members):

Ancient lodestones have been uncovered at various locations around RuneScape. If you use your Home Teleport spell when you first log in, you will find that you can freely teleport to the following:

Lumbridge
Burthorpe (members only)
Ancient Magicks spellbook location (if you have completed Desert Treasure)
Lunar Magic spellbook location (if you have completed Lunar Diplomacy)

Find and activate more lodestones about RuneScape, and you will be able to unlock them as Home Teleport options. The locations are:

Al Kharid
Ardougne (m)
Catherby (m)
Draynor Village
Edgeville
Falador
Port Sarim
Seers’ Village (m)
Taverley (m)
Varrock
Yanille (m)

Locations marked with an (m) are members only.

A Home Teleport to a lodestone has the same restrictions as the previous Home Teleport: it is comparatively slow to cast, can be interrupted by combat, and cannot be used beyond level 20 Wilderness. The Home Teleport spell can be accessed via any spellbook, allowing you to freely teleport to lodestones using the Ancient Magicks and Lunar spellbook.

Lodestones have been placed a small distance from town centres, to ensure that current teleport methods are still a more efficient (and much faster to cast) option in most situations. This has not stopped us from tweaking existing teleport items, however, to make their teleport locations more convenient. Changes to teleport items include:

Camulet/Cramulet – teleports outside Enakhra’s Temple, closer to the granite quarry
Combat bracelet – teleports slightly closer to the Warriors’ Guild and Champions’ Guild
Necklace of skills – teleports slightly closer to the Fishing Guild, Cooks’ Guild and Crafting Guild
Games necklace – teleports near to Captain Jute of the Troll Invasion

Finally, we've updated the appearance of many of the signposts that show the way around Gielinor, adding clearly visible logos to each and a visual style appropriate to their region.

The loyalty programme is starting to become more of a hindrance I feel... Why can't they just set the price and leave it at that instead of getting people to spend their points, then going through the thousands of memberships to refund some?

I'm not exactly complaining... but I just find it a tad pointless... (no pun intended).

Seems like a cool week though and ima go hunt them loadstones! :D

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Well now the Amulet of Glory has been made 75% useless. Farming just became a lot cheaper now that teleport runes are no longer required for many patches.

"Players' toolbelts will now be filled with all non-quest items on logging in."
Why do they make this game unnecessarily easier and less realistic? :(

Might as well wipe out those implements from existence now eh.
EDIT: Logically, it'd be pretty pointless to have those items as long as they're sitting snuggly in your belt :P

Jagex this game isn't realistic enough!

Now if you don't mind, I have to use holy water to destroy a vampire while eating entire shark to immediately heal magic-induced wounds.

Invigorate sounds promising, and new teleports are always welcomed.
But I'm most excited about the discounted existing auras, allowing for cheaper purchases as well as a nice rebate for points already spent!

Edit: If the useful auras get cheap enough, I might eventually have some leftover points for the emotes.

I could make some use of the loadstones, but there isn't really anything in the Loyalty shop in terms of new items to entice me aside from the eye effect items (which are rather overpriced if you ask me). As for the new effects section, why not just make the wing effects on Corurption/Salvation/Harmony auras in that category since most who buy the auras in the first place do it for the wing graphics more than the effects (which I forgot what they were).

I'll save my 12K points and just keep hoarding for the time being. Will get on later to unlock all the lodestone locations.

18K and the color is hardly noticeable? Maybe I should take back what I said about wanting the eye colors. :unsure:

So...the time I spent on getting 96 Mage is pretty much wasted now?
