Behind the Scenes – June 2015
 
Summer is well and truly here, with a June packed full of red-hot content. Read on!
 
Tuska
 
Tuska is here, flying towards Gielinor with a toothy, evil grin on her face, hell-bent on the destruction of everything!
 
Get involved now – pick your god and earn tasty rewards like the World Eater armour as you try to save RuneScape. There's plenty to do in this world event, so make sure you explore her back as you hurtle through space. It's not to be missed!
 

 

Slayer Belt
 
The slayer belt project was one of first RuneLabs successes, suggested by the fabulous Dragonsseed.
 
It's an addition to the existing tool belt, with 12 items to add to help you on your slaying escapades. No longer will you be forgetting your slayer items, with essentials such as rock hammers, slayer bells - and more - being added to the belt.
 
You'll also be able to spend slayer points on adding your bonecrusher, charming imp and other useful items to the belt, saving you precious inventory space.
 
Adamant & Rune Dragons
 
Also from RuneLabs are the mighty adamant and rune dragons - as proposed by Dragonforcae!
 
Addy dragons can be found deep within the Brimhaven Dungeon, and are a significantly tougher that their mithril cousins. They drop bars, of course, and some new bones too!
 
Rune dragons are definitely the kings of this update, though, worthy of their rune title. They live on Kethsi - accessible via the World Gate - and require completion of Ritual of the Mahjarrat and Fate of the Gods to access.
 
You'll want to shatter their rune plating first using dragonbane, then find a way to deal with their aerial attacks and increasingly damaging dragonfire. Some of the rune dragons are even more powerful elite versions, with even tastier drop tables.
 
Rewards include components to add to glacor boots, make new tier 90 power boots for all combat styles. There's are a cosmetic Kethsi outfit, and a Kethsi ring that provides useful damage boosts and teleports for dragon slayers.
 
Hidden murals within the dungeons can unlock new dragonkin lore and chunks of Firemaking XP. You'll also see adamant dragons in the Rush of Blood Slayer D&D.
 
There'll be an Early Bird Bonus for the first 2 weeks, too: increased spawn rates of all dragons, including the elites.

Ninja Spotlight – Artisans' Workshop
 
This month, the Ninjas have focused on the Artisans' Workshop. They've taken a huge amount of feedback from the forums and social media, concentrating on the rewards and functions of the workshop, making a ton of changes based on your ideas and requests.
 
Using the workshop - especially making ceremonial swords - is now a much more pleasant experience, with brand new rewards including auto cannon filling!
 

Hero's Welcome
 
The people of Rellekka will finally see the return of the legendary hero-turned-god V in a lore-tastic quest.
 

Heros_welcome.jpg

In this exciting new chapter in the Fremennik storyline, you will get to meet and greet with V, and then participate in a dangerous raid on a number of the dragonkin's secret lairs. These raids feature stealth elements and puzzles as you track down your scaly targets. Make sure you're all geared up as you take on dragon guards and even members of the dragonkin themselves!
 
The quest features a replayable boss fight which drops a new pair of thrown weapons and a tradeable, super-rare level 75 cape. You can also discover new resource locations when you are done - including more adamant dragons.
 

Summer Beach Party
 
Look out for some crazy stuff going on in the Lumbridge Crater this month – it's the perfect antidote to the world-ending trauma that's happening in the skies above us.
 
Reyna – a survivor of the Battle of Lumbridge – plans to turn the whole crater into an awesome, summer beach party, but she needs your help to do it.
 
Ferry buckets of sand to Reyna to receive mystery boxes full of great prizes, such as coconut hats, tortoises, sand capes and crab hats. Once the beach has been built, there is a huge party planned with a wide range of beach-themed events like a coconut shy, sandcastle building and barbecuing.
 
Lots of XP will be on offer, and some special portals giving you quick and easy access to your favourite D&Ds. There are also a bunch of special tradeable items you can earn or buy using your Bonds!

 

In Other News
 
In Solomon's Store, there are two more bank boosters - free to members - and a set of overrides to match the Vitality Suit: a cape, two-handed sword, two-handed crossbow and staff.
 
There are also challenge gems that allow you to host your own competitions: staked or just for fun, for skilling or combat.
 
Treasure Hunter has some new headpiece add-ons for your skilling outfits, too.

Remember, gambling is bad - unless you pay Jagex as a sponsor!

 

They should really be just for fun and this should be a free feature, not some convoluted Treasure Hunter promotion. Who is really going to go for this when there are more effective stat tracking methods than whatever Jagex has in mind?

Only thing that interests me is the new frem lore and I can't even experience it.

Really excited about his month , however one thing has me worried : ' These raids feature stealth elements ', please God no, why do they keep adding stealth activities in quests. With the tick system they just do not work, isnt it enough they ruined Dishonor Among Thieves without ruining another quest with them.

Wow, this seems to be a big month, they could split this bts in two and I would still be happy.

Agreed, stealth is just not a good integration.

 

Look forward to the dragons and quest. Hope I will even be able to kill the dragons with any efficiency.

Looking forwards to the Slayer Belt. Recently managed to forget something I needed on an assignment and had to go back to the bank to get it. (And after making a point of making sure I remembered everything, too.)

Now that you mention it, that could create some lore gaps in quests...

That part of ratcatchers is ridiculously easy these days. It took me all of 5 minutes when I did it on my alt. :P

Starting next week: you must use Stealth to sneak up and stab Tuska in the head.


Back after a 5 year TIF hiatus. Please don't mind me too much.

Is it really?

 

Admittedly, the last time I played it RSHD was a thing, but what has changed that made that quest at least barely functioning?

Finally a proper packed month! The only thing here which is a bit of a filler is the beach party thing in my opinion, but that might be because I just don't think it fits in RS. Meh. Great month to look forward to, especially that V---- quest!

That would be cute I guess but those were sort of superseded by Portable Ranges anyway :P.

Or they could put them in a static place like a range anyway, but simply be done to stay true to the motif.
