10 Year veteran cape:

Hey all,

Today sees the long-awaited launch of the 10 Year Veteran Cape – a cape available only to members that have been playing RuneScape for 10 years or more. A lot can happen in 10 years - just take a look at RuneScape back in 2002!
The gates of Gielinor had barely been open a year when Ardougne made its first appearance on the map, and the poor (or should that be rich?) Carnilleans first fell victim to the heinous Hazeel Cult. 2002 was also the year that Tutorial Island welcomed many new visitors to RuneScape, and many an adventurer also met their demise at the hands of the newly-arrived King Black Dragon!
Back in the real world, 2002 saw Japan and Korea host the FIFA World Cup, and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers first hit cinema screens.
If you’ve been playing our game for 10 years, you certainly deserve a special item to mark this magnificent commitment. This prestigious garment is is available to members only, a members item and it can be purchased from Hans, who can be found in the grounds of Lumbridge Castle.
Before you head off to get your cape and enjoy its impressive new emote, we’d just like to say a big thank you to all of our loyal players, and we look forward to creating further veteran capes as and when each new milestone arrives!
1 thing to clear up, Runeday Zero was on the 27th Feburary 2002! Im sure you can count the days from then to see if you are eligable
A minor note, Hans currently does not tell you how long till you reach the cape, this is being sorted . Should be with you soon.

Solomon:

Solomon - a genie of exquisite taste and distinction - has a plethora of exclusive merchandise to enhance your characters' appearance, and is offering them for purchase in his boutique: Solomon's General Store.
There are costumes - become a cunning Assassin or a debonair swashbuckler, and visual enhancements for your weapons - how about a Pactbreaker longsword?; there are also animations that change how you skill and teleport; a variety of emotes; and a host of new titles. Last, but certainly not least, a banner that allows you to stamp your mark on Gielinor!
Free players and members alike will have access to this store from within the game, and as a celebration of his store's 'Grand Opening', Solomon is offering all first time visitors to his store 200 RuneCoins to spend.
That's on top of the 10% that all members receive in the store - permanently!
Alongside Solomon’s General Store is the new Customisation System. This lets you change your appearance without losing the stats from your regular worn items, set up new animation overrides and manage your titles. It also allows you to preview the various items and animations available in Solomon’s General Store, so you can view them on your character before making a purchase. This dressing room even lets you save costume combinations for the future. The Customisation System can be accessed at any time from your Worn Equipment tab.
RuneCoins are a new currency that we've introduced purely for Solomon's General Store and they're available for purchase through the Jagex billing system, accessed either here or via the Buy RuneCoins button from inside the Store itself.
And remember for our members, we have a discount of 10% on all items available in the Store!
Please note that that items purchased from the store are untradeable.
Take a look at our FAQ or Help Guide if you have further questions, or drop into the forums to let us know what items you’d love to see next.

In other news:
The Scream emote is now available in the Members Loyalty Programme store at the discounted price of 4500 loyalty points.




In addition, today's update also brought you the ability to buy costume parts / animations / titles for your character. The cosmetic items, which cannot be found elsewhere ingame are bought using runecoins can be bought using real life cash.

The ability to buy the items is found at the SOF tab, and a new 'Customise' Tab found in your Equipment screen.

You are able to get 200 free Runecoins once. If you want more you can buy runecoins. There are several packages, but 200 runecoins are being sold for 4 euros / 5 dollars. There is a 10% Member discount on all the items of Solomon's Store. Item prices vary from 10 coins to 16200 coins.

Also when you log in the banner is 'Solomon's General Store Grand Opening' ..

For which you seem to need Runecoins and is in the same tab as SoF let the shit storm begin :)

But is still only 'coming soon'.

"Runecoins" seem to be the method of buying stuff from his stuff. When you click to buy Runecoins it says coming soon. Assuming they are selling Runecoins so people can buy outfits and such. If this is the only way of obtaining these outfits.. dear god.

What exactly counts as a cosmetic item? Also a bit worrying..

How has this game turned into a subscription based with micro-transactions model? Jagex are getting as greedy as Activision/Blizzard :(

I'm assuming rares/things such as flippers bunny ears scythes etc etc etc. I'm really struggling to find any necessary reason for a change like this lol.

E: friend just informed me, anything with 0 stat bonus can no longer be taken in the wild.

It's like they want to imitate Maple Story or something. The new rwt features are remarkably similar.

- Gachapon is functionally much like SoF
- A special currency linked to ingame money
- Massive amounts of cosmetic items bought only with this currency

We're only missing 2x exp and item cards now.

I guess this is it, the moment we all saw coming.... Where jagex uses the precedent set by Squeal Of Fortune to put in a light form RWT. I bet they'll claim it's not really RWT as we're buying "coins" that can be spent on items and such, not the actual items themselves....


Next up, we'll be able to buy armour and then in-game cash with our real world money... *sigh* jagex, oh jagex...........

It seems like there are a lot of glitches with today's update. Solomon's store is not working at the moment (lol), my max cape can't be customised, some weapons are invisible when equipped.

Equipment glitch:

I do not know if this is new, but I got an video ad for members when I logged on my f2p account. It was around 30 sec long , and I was unable to close it.
The video starts everytime I log into f2p.

My only hope is this FINALLY makes a certain subset of stupid people understand the V on normal vet cape is roman numeral 5 and not V for veteran. One of my pet peeves was people claiming it was V for veteran when Jagex themselves even said it was V for 5 and you could see by the little tail things on top it was the roman numeral style font and not just a letter.

Tbh as long as Soloman is cosmetic items only I'm not too fussed with it. Though it is another step in a direction I dislike for Jagex; but as long as you are only buying looks and not actual benefits it's not too bad.
