Skilling Outfits in Minigames | New Chatbox Options

 

This week, there are more ways than ever to collect a range of skilling outfits formerly only seen on Treasure Hunter, and new options for how to display your chatbox.

Read on for full details!

 

Skilling Outfits in Minigames

 

You can expand your collection of skill-enhancing garb by playing particular minigames or D&Ds:

  • Artisan (Crafting): Stealing Creation – Bought from reward shop
  • Blacksmith (Smithing): Artisans' Workshop – Random chance when successfully smithing ceremonial swords – increased if you get it perfect.
  • Botanist (Herblore): Flash Powder Factory – Bought from reward shop
  • Farmer (Farming): Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza – Bought from reward shop
  • Fletcher (Fletching): Stealing Creation – Bought from reward shop
  • Nimble (Agility): The Pit – Random chance on completion (successful or not)

Note that the corresponding headpiece-enhancement items are not currently obtainable via these methods.

 

We've also made it possible for Ironman players to play Stealing Creation, making the Crafting and Fletching outfits available to those who prefer to go it solo. Note that the other rewards in the Stealing Creation Reward Shop are not available to Ironman players.

 

New Chatbox Options

 

The chatbox now has two modes, switchable by clicking the new cog icon in the chat interface and selecting 'switch mode'.

 

The first is very similar to the chatbox you know so well. We've just replaced the old hamburger icon with a cog, and moved the filter button to the right, to sit alongside it.

The new alternative mode has a range of the most-used options immediately to hand, with the rest just a click away in the options cog:

In this mode, you can also collapse the icons at the top, if you want to keep it really tidy:

As always, your feedback's much appreciated – let us know what you think.

  • A Junk refiner can now be used all in one and will adjust to display how many components a player can receive based on charges and junk available.

With more ways than ever to expand your array of skilling gear, this might just be the week to get that much sought-after 99.

 

Whatever you're training, have fun. See you in game.

Took them 2 weeks to fix the quick prayers on legacy interface, that's better than I'd have expected.

Yes I feel your pain...was the same thing with the broken queued abilities and the hotkey to withdraw from BoB.
