Duel Arena (free players and members)

The Duel Arena has been given a great big graphical polish, bringing it up to the standard of the Al Kharid rework that came with the Stolen Hearts and Diamond in the Rough quests last year. Go head-to-head against your chosen foe amid flowing banners, rough-hewn masonry and sand-blasted ruins; there's no more fitting place in RuneScape to prove your worth in one-on-one PvP combat.
We've made some structural and technical tweaks, too: there are new, dedicated arenas for boxing matches and summoning-enabled duels, and - while there are fewer visible combat arenas - starting a duel when they're full up will automatically generate an instance for you, so you'll always have a place to fight.

If you've not ventured out to the Duel Arena before, there's never been a better time to do so. In the arena, you can get a taste of PvP combat with no chance of losing your hard-earned gear. You set the conditions of the fights: you can duel for a mutually agreed stake of items or gold coins, or just enjoy a friendly scrap for fun and bragging rights. You can set other conditions too: fancy a muscular brawl just with melee weapons? No problem. Think crossbows at dawn are the only civilized way to settle a dispute? That can be arranged. You can even claim a duellist's cap from the mightily moustachioed Estocada, which can be upgraded as you rack up wins for improved looks, an emote, and the ability to transform into a statue commemorating your victories.
The gauntlet's been thrown down. Go forth and duel!

Mod Wilson

How to access the Duel Arena:
The Duel Arena can be found just a short way north east of Al Kharid.
Within its bounds, you will see an axe icon in the top right of the screen. When this is visible, you can right click other players and click 'Challenge' to invite them to a duel.
Requirements:
None.

Behind the Scenes Video


Take a tour of the improved Duel Arena in our latest Behind the Scenes video. There's information about the benefits that the HTML5 Graphics Engine will bring to RuneScape 3, too:

In Other News

  • Don't forget that there's an easier-to-win super rare item on the Squeal of Fortune, each day until Thursday. Once they've had their time in the sun they'll no longer be up for grabs, so be sure to spin every day! See here for details.
  • From Friday, look out for some all-new super rares on the Squeal of Fortune. More details to come soon.

Underwhelming update, really. Oh well, I'll check out what it looks like after I'm done this gwd trip. I love how in the BTS they're all "There will be less queuing and less waiting trying to get into the arena" - As if the duel arena (post EOC) has ever been busy enough to warrant something like this.

Was looking forward to instanced GWD, hopefully next week.

Looks like HYT might finally be able to upgrade citadel to T5.
Neat!

PS:
"Certain defensive abilities no longer cause the player to re-attack their target."

Finally no more running back to Kalphite King when you press Anticipation on the [bleep]ing mage phase!

So I logged out for an update to a broken system ripe with bug abusers to transfer more money than I've ever seen in what a certain percentage of the time jagex is confident is RWT?

*searches for dislike button*

At least there's no EE nerf yet and I can keep working on slayer because they haven't messed with the monsters defenses again.

Go forth and stack harder.

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

The visitor upkeep requirements in a Clan Citadel has been removed (though 5 visitors per week are still required), and the visitor upgrade requirements have been lowered.


This is very good news for clans as maintenance and upkeep will be much easier. Hopefully we'll see more higher tier citadels and also less pressure to just mine or woodcut each week.

Is hex still a shieldbow though? Because t11 shieldbow is still worse than t10 shortbow.

You do realise they have only changed the VISITOR requirements; the resources as in wood, stone, cloth etc all still stand exactly as they were before.

Also I didn't even realise HYT was still going along doing citadel, shame we can't get more official status for it - I mean ones like RuneHQ that are official are nearly always at the max 500 members

Ah, the citadel upkeep being lowered is quite a lovely update. My belief is that you should be able to have a small clan, even if that does not mean it'll grow/keep up as easily as a big one.

Oh yes, I forgot to consider that. I suppose I was thinking more personally of the clan I'm in where at Tier 3 there isn't much to do besides mine and woodcut (smithing works, to an extent). At Tier 4 or 5 crafting and summoning would be much more useful to train.

Sometimes people mention random things like this and it is always the same person and no-one else seems to have any idea wtf is meant to be wrong.
So what exactly is 'broken' on mage prayers?

They don't work correctly. As far as I understand it, the bonuses they apply don't actually work.

yeah. They don't apply at least the damage boost.

DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
...
It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).
