24-Jun-2013 - Far and Wide: Transport Update

Recommended Posts

Game Updates

Far and Wide: Transport Update

 

13 hours ago

Far and Wide (free players and members)

 

We've beefed up the roster of destinations in the Lodestone Network with some higher-level, further-flung places, and made a bundle of other useful changes to RuneScape's transport system. It's easier than ever to get around Gielinor, meaning less time running and more time playing.

 

There are seven new destinations to unlock for the Lodestone Network. As usual, visit any of these once and activate the stone, and it'll be just a Home Teleport spell away:

 

Canifis

Eagles' Peak

Fremennik Province

Karamja

Oo'glog

Tirannwn

Wilderness Volcano

 

Note that only the Wilderness Volcano teleport is available to free players. It's also important to note that you cannot be attacked in the Wilderness until your arrival animation has fully completed. Before teleporting to the Wilderness, you'll receive the same warning that you would upon crossing the Wilderness wall on foot.

 

In light of these new teleport options, and others implemented in recent content, we've also made a collection of improvements to the way that existing teleport options work. In most cases, this is to add additional value to a teleport option that would otherwise have teleported you close to one of the new lodestones, only at additional cost:

 

The Nardah Teleport scroll has become the Pollnivneach Teleport scroll, and takes you just south of the well in Pollnivneach.

The Kharyrll Teleport spell now takes you just outside the Canifis pub - close to the bank.

The amulet of glory teleport to Al Kharid now takes you to Shantay Pass.

The Tai Bwo Wannai Teleport scroll now takes you slightly closer to the calquat patch.

The Rellekka lyre teleport now takes you right into the town - close to the docks.

 

Enjoy!

 

Mod Srowley

 

How to unlock new Lodestone Network destinations

 

Take a look here for a full list of available Lodestone Network destinations.

 

Requirements

 

For some destinations (specified here) you must be a RuneScape member.

In Other News

 

Take your Home Teleport spell up a notch with the Strongarm and Arcane teleport animations, available at Solomon's General Store.

There's a new tradeable rare coming this Friday - craftable from items available in game and on the Squeal of Fortune.

 

The patch notes archive can be found here.

 

[hide=Patch Notes]

24th June 2013

 

 

Graphical:

 

 

The animated suits of armour in the Warriors’ Guild now wear more modern versions of their respective suits.

Avatars no longer look distorted when activating a new hairstyle in the Customisation Interface.

Pets no longer turn green in the Dominion Tower.

The strongarm resting animation cosmetic override has been altered to prevent issues with other emotes.

The outline around a skill pendant from the Squeal of Fortune now appears whole.

Ae skin colouring issue on Saniboch has been fixed.

 

 

 

Quests, Challenges & Achievements:

 

 

The Nexus task can now be completed if a player has managed to complete the Nexus activity.

 

 

 

Skills & Minigames:

 

 

Wilderness Warbands will now spawn on a set 7 hour rotation to keep all worlds synchronised, instead of 7 hours after a world has rebooted. Players also now only have 20 minutes to initially interact with a warband (interacting with one will extend its life by up to 10 minutes).

The experience rates have been increased in the Sinkhole distraction for players with a Dungeoneering level at level 100 or greater.

Players can now win a Hoardstalker Dungeon ring from Sinkhole Ibis cards. This ring will teleport a player to a Dungeoneering Resource Dungeon up to 8 times before being destroyed.

Players spell books should no longer be reset upon exiting a Sinkhole.

There now needs to be at least 5 players in The Crucible for the trophy bones to drop.

 

 

 

Other:

 

 

Players can now take a dragon keepsake key into the Crucible (and tutorial) to use the supreme weapons as customisations.

Gilded pickaxes can now be placed in a tool belt. The Gold Nymph will now also gild a pickaxe in a tool belt.

Scrimshaws now default to the superior category and also default to only make one when using the scrimshaw crafter.

The illuminated books of the gods can now be added to the Player-Owned House bookcase.

Players can now run through the east Al Kharid gate without having to talk to the guards.

Wizard gloves are now dropped via Wizards and Spellwisps. Spellwisps now also drop wizard wands and books.

The Raptor will no longer die to so-called "Brutal" green dragons.

The Action Bar now works correctly with key binds and items in a slot after logging in and out.

The runebound behemoth can no longer be hit through its protection prayers.

Chaelder now gives the player the correct information when assigning jellies.

Players can no longer rest when using a music box.

A small typo in Raetul's chat has been fixed.

A small spelling error when adding lent items to the tool belt has been fixed.

Rocktails and rocktail soup now work as intended with expensive spices.

Some inconsistent stats on the Culinaromancer's low level gloves have been corrected.

The toy kite can no longer be overridden with a dragon keepsake key.

The Clan kill count now works correctly.

Players will now only be given the "You have been poisoned!" message if they were not already poisoned.

The buy limit for ascension shards has been increased.

Fragment bolts and arrows should now pack more of a punch and can be used with more weapons.

Summoning scrolls now work as expected in the Wilderness.

Marker plants can no longer be used in Nex's Prison.

The Skill Advance Guide for The Runespan conjuration platforms has been updated to state that they are members only.

You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

God damnit, shit like this really makes me realise why I lost every ounce of faith and respect for Jagex at the end of last year.

 

Overall update is decent, teleports are nice ofc. Pity nothing majorly useful - though Tiranwn(sp?) tele is very useful, never have to use teleport crystal charges again! Just a pity it's dogged by idiotic JMods/greedy business partners who want to milk us for all we have...

 

 

The Raptor will no longer die to so-called "Brutal" green dragons.

 

Lol'd.

 

 

Patch notes contain nothing to write home about. Overall a VERY bare week :S

I really feel like this week and last weeks updates were only released so they could say they released something instead of having a dead week as there was no new content. It frustrates me more the size of the Squeal updates as well as the shear quantity, its like every week now, Surely it must be usign up a sizeable amount of development/Q and A time for each.

 

I am however very intrigued about the boost to sinkhole xp, as I do them everyday. Will have to see how much of a boost it is though

Why lodes though? Why not teleport spells? They're just about useless now because there's a lode at almost every location and it takes like 5 seconds to run the extra distance if it's further away.

"Gilded pickaxes can now be placed in a tool belt. The Gold Nymph will now also gild a pickaxe in a tool belt."

I guess that explains why they had to take a week to do it - good that they remembered.

 

Basically a patch notes week, but ok. It's good they remembered to update teleports.

Why would they add even more lodestones...

 

 

Soon rs is just a "click here to be at green dragons, click here to be at yyy, click here to bank your items".... It also makes poh teleport rooms even more useless, as well as teleporting by itself (and having spellbook swap to be able to use them all)...


First they came to fishing

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

 

Then they came to the yews

and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

 

Then they came for the ores

and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

 

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

My thoughts exactly. New rare, but be the first to get your hands on it (without having to buy it ingame) by buying spins!

Took them long enough to figure out no one in the company had any idea what they were doing on the previous warband update.

It's always a head item for rares? Can't we have a new rare thing that isn't worn on the head? :/

 

Also found a new ice prison escape already. :lol:

Well I'm assuming that's a sample of each season on there so it won't be exactly like that. Plus it's hard to tell what it'll look like on a character from that image.
