Your Community Features

 

After trawling the forums, fan sites and the great wide internet for requests from the community, we've put together a package of improvements, many of which focus on improving the social side of RuneScape. The updates listed below will help you to interact with your friends, adventure alongside them and show off your accomplishments - your way.

 

Social Updates

  • Beams of light now highlight drops worth 1 million or more, as well as certain rare untradeable drops such as clue scrolls and effigies. The more valuable the drop, the more awe-inspiring the beam looks!
  • You'll now find a 'notes' function in your Friends and Ignore lists, helping you to keep track of who's who.
  • We've added a new animation for your character, displayed when you log in.
  • Many of the older emote animations have been improved.
  • Members can now wear Loyalty Programme outfits on free-to-play worlds.
  • Max and Completionist capes are no longer unequipped when you log onto a free-to-play world.
  • A greater variety of drops and accomplishments are now announced on your Adventurer's Log, and in friends and global announcements.
  • There's a new 'broadcast' filter in the main chat tab. This will allow you to see server broadcasts (such as 99 skill announcements) even if your game messaging is filtered or switched off entirely.
  • Fireworks are now displayed for every 10 million XP you earn in a skill after reaching level 99.
  • There are now 'hide' options for every equipment slot in the Wardrobe interface.
  • There's a new 'Trade and Assistance' chat tab.
  • You can now enter sinkholes while wearing the ring of kinship or the Daemonheim aura. Note that you can't teleport out of a sinkhole by using these.
We've also included a bumper batch of your most sought-after usability updates:

 

Usability Updates

  • You can now drag and drop items onto each other to use them together, rather than having to right-click, select 'use' and then click the other.
  • Food burned while cooking in Daemonheim now stacks.
  • It's now possible to toggle off the quick inventory slots.
  • Removing all items that you're wearing via the icon in your bank will no longer remove active auras.
  • Bonus XP is now shown in the tooltip displayed when you hover over an XP progress circle, and beneath your XP total.
  • Key binds (the 1-3 keys) have been added to the conversion interface used while training Divination.
  • The text displayed on successful wasteless smithing is now orange.
  • Familiar options will be shown in banks, even when they're toggled off.
  • You can now right-click the Daemonheim smuggler and click 'collect' to receive runes. Also, if you've bound a potion, you'll get it on entering a dungeon.
  • There's a new 'fill' option on the gem bag.
Please note: the Coinshare update mentioned in Mod Mark's most recent Behind the Scenes article is coming next week. We've held it back for technical reasons, to ensure it's ready for release.

Each of the above is something that we've seen requested frequently, and we've delivered them with the aim of making RuneScape the game that you want to play. We'll be releasing more batches like this in the future, and we need to know your thoughts. Do you like these feedback-focused update weeks? If so, what improvements - or kind of improvements - would you like to see in the future? Mod Ryan has made a thread for you to put forward your ideas, so visit the forums now to have your say.

Enjoy!

Turning off the quick inv is probably the best update today.

 

The Wings all look rather flat, which is dissappointing for the Icyenic wing.

 

The skeletal wing look like a carbon copy of Kerrigan's Wings

Just in time for 99 wc announcement xD

It would be nice if the broadcast could be set to, say, clanmates.  I might want to see when a friend/clanmate gets a 99, but not as much for a random person that I do not know :P.

The wings would look better without particles.

 

Particles are good of used properly. Sticking them everywhere.. well.. no.

Wondering how 'significant' the increase in sirenic scale drops is.

Also wondering what the hell they mean with the neem oil thing for ganodermic beasts.

They probably meant that when you apply Neem oil on ganodermic creatures, it should be a debuff, but it was showing as a buff instead.

Tried the chaos giants, their drops seem improved, but nothing spectacular.

Dropping items physically on the ground doesn't generate the light beam, it seems the drop must be an actual drop

I wonder how the economy will change in response to whatever changes they are making to the coinshare system... guess I'll have to wait until next week.

 

In response to this week's update, being able to toggle off quick inventory is welcoming...as is the increased drop rate for sirenic scales.

 

That new wing kind of look like that from d3...as does the concept of a light beam over a 'special' item.

The GE has changed a bit, you can't view information about items now (if you went to buy an item you use to be able to see the stats in a separate box).

Yes it's very ugly and looks... Childish? I don't know what word to use, not my cup of tea.

 

Edit: a bit too polished

I paid a visit to the Naragi homeworld, it's pretty much exactly as it was during TWW. Nothing to do there that you didn't already do in the quest. Could make for a cool Divination location if they could add another.

Unless there are remnants of the gods who died there like Skargoroth.

I would like it if they did something like this once a month. I'm quite fond of these in particular:

 

Key binds (the 1-3 keys) have been added to the conversion interface used while training Divination.

This is just lovely. Reduces the distance you need to move your mouse and allows for quicker processing.

 

Beams of light now highlight drops worth 1 million or more, as well as certain rare untradeable drops such as clue scrolls and effigies.

I was not a fan of this when it was talked about in the BTS. And then, I went to cannon dark beasts on a task. Even with bonecrusher and herbicide, it was a bit hectic to track drops. And it always haunted me, thinking I might have missed a sirenic scale drop under my cannon...Now, I'm all for it.

 

There's a new 'broadcast' filter in the main chat tab. This will allow you to see server broadcasts (such as 99 skill announcements) even if your game messaging is filtered or switched off entirely.

I've wanted this since the release of broadcasts. That's something I saw in other games that I didn't mind at all. Actually, I grew quite fond of it. But since playing with game messages on is a good way to lose everything in your chatbox, I never used it.

 

There's a new 'Trade and Assistance' chat tab.

This depends, does it limit the chat between those you have a trade window or assistance window open with? If so, HOLY CRAP FINALLY. I've waited so long...

 

You can now enter sinkholes while wearing the ring of kinship or the Daemonheim aura. Note that you can't teleport out of a sinkhole by using these.

Hrrrngg.

 

There's a new 'fill' option on the gem bag.

YAY!

 

 

I paid a visit to the Naragi homeworld, it's pretty much exactly as it was during TWW. Nothing to do there that you didn't already do in the quest. Could make for a cool Divination location if they could add another.

The Naragi homeworld isn't on Gielinor so it can't be a divination location

 

Well there's still a chance of divine energy being there, left over from the dying gods who fought there. Harvesting it could potentially be done in the same fashion, but yeah...that's getting a bit far afield. After all, it's hard to imagine a planet renown for its diviners would leave any tool untouched in their attempts to survive. And then there's the question of whether or not that divine energy could be used for restoration of the Anima Mundi on Gielinor following the inventor skill consuming more energy than would be restored to the planet, etc.
