Improved Looting

 

Improved Looting is here – another update fuelled by your feedback from theRuneScape Beta.

 

With a single click, bring up the new, customisable loot window and grab everything in the surrounding area that meets your criteria.

 

This has the potential to significantly change how you play, so we've given you the option to use old-style looting, if you prefer.

 

Read on for more information!

 

How to Use Improved Looting

 

The improved looting mechanics are switched on by default, and you can customise them through the Game Settings interface. If you'd rather stick to the old loot mechanics, this is also where you can toggle them off.

 

Simply left-click a piece of loot and the new looting interface will open. It will gather and display all loot that you're eligible to pick up. Then, you can click individual items to transfer them to your backpack, or click 'Loot All' to grab everything.

 

To customise the Loot interface, first go to the Game Settings interface, then click the new 'Loot Options' button.

 

This enables you to toggle the loot interface entirely (default on), toggle area looting (default off) and toggle right-click activation of the Loot interface (default off).

 

This is also where you can set up custom loot criteria. This lets you set a minimum coin value and various categories - 'herblore items,' 'prayer items,' etc. – which can be ticked in any combination you wish. Selecting any of these will add a 'Loot Custom' button to the Loot interface, which will pick up any items which meet the criteria you've set.

 

Note that the Loot interface cannot be used in most minigames, and that area looting requires line of sight to the item in question.

 

Also, certain items – such as those specifically related to quests – cannot be picked up through the Loot interface. You can pick up any such items in the old way by right-clicking them, as long as right-click activation is turned off.

 

Enjoy!

 

This comes fresh from the RuneScape Beta, and is another example of the quality-of-life improvements we can make with your help. Let us know what you think!

Patch Notes

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

A loot system is interesting, yes...but I'm not sure if it's worthy of an entire update. The patch notes were short, but I guess those were some nice fixes. And as for being able to open sets by clicking on a banker/chest/whatever, a few years too late, but useful for saving some bank space, I suppose!

Does anyone understand what the right click option does? I turned it on and I didn't see any differences?

It's not that good.  The loot area is NOT 3x3 by any means.  I have had multiple instances where loots are one square next to each other and it only loots one of such loot.

That being said, it's STILL an improvement from previously just picking up stuff, but it seems to have given a bit of false hope on it being super useful.

i like how the looting menu is less detailed than the spring cleaner menu

 

i like how the spring cleaner menu does not have a specifically labeled option to toggle ammo but the looting menu does

From what I gather, it only seems useful in tight close areas like abby demons at Kuradel's dungeon... depending on how far it can pick up loot. Never done the beta so would have to try this out for sure! 

 

If they haven't yet, they could probably add a "x-bob" button on the looting interface... and allow famliars to carry more valuable loot... it's not 2008 anymore.

So apparently combat takes priority over picking up loot. Even if you disable the new loot menu.

They effectively broke picking up items.
They literally can not play test any of this...

Even worse, a lot of people did play test it in the beta and it didn't get fixed.

Suggestion for the ninja team: every week, playtest the newest released content, find out how it's broken, and fix it. That should keep them busy...

Did I trigger something accidentally, or did other people get a popup advertising the new looting system (which doesn't even work right!)? It disappeared after a few seconds but I still find it funny.

They did. The right click to open loot interface option was disabled (from earlier in the thread):
