28th September 2015 - Patch Week & Spirit Hunter Outfit

Recommended Posts

Patch Week | Spirit Hunter Outfit


It's a quiet one this week, with no specific main game release. There's a hearty helping of fixes and tweaks in the patch notes, though, including a tidy-up of the Customisation and Gear interfaces. To find out more about the interface changes, see Mod Osborne's forum post.


Cosmetic fans are in for a treat with the Spirit Hunter outfit – available now in Solomon's Store. There's also news on what's new in the RuneScape community, including the latest on the Players' Gallery.


Read on to find out more!


Solomon's Store | Spirit Hunter Outfit


The second of our new artist showcase outfits has hit Solomon's Store: the Spirit Hunter.


With a brief simply of 'Ranged Combat', our talented artists, modellers and animators came up with this five-piece outfit, plus matching bow, crossbow and animation overrides.

This week sees the return of our much-loved Bot-busting stream, and your first chance to see a glimpse of what we've got planned for Falador this October!


Developer Q&A: feat. Falador Graphical rework| 16:00 UTC, Tuesday 29th September


Join the usual cast of JMods on the streaming sofas as they take your questions - this week, we'll be giving you a sneaky peek into what we have planned this October in Falador. With a graphical rework and a siege, it's set to be awesome!


Ask your questions on the forums, on Reddit, or on Twitter using the hashtag#RSDevQA.


Bot-Busting with the Customer Service team! | 20:00 UTC, Tuesday 29th September


We're bot-busting again! Join us for a chance to nail some bots this Tuesday - we'll be showing off some awesome new methods of extermination as well, which you don't want to miss!


Note: we will not be checking the wealth of these bots as in the previous bot-busting stream.




There's a cracking month of content coming up – check out Behind the Scenes – October at the end of this week, and – of course – look out for final information on the RuneFest event and live stream very soon!

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”
