18-2-2013 The RuneScape Bestiary

18 February 2013 - 04:29 PM

The RuneScape Bestiary (free players and members)
This week, we're really excited to give you a glimpse at the next generation of RuneScape. We've created a new feature for the RuneScape website which lets you browse almost 3,000 of RuneScape's monsters and NPCs: the RuneScape Bestiary. Posted Image
Each one is viewable in full 3D using our new HTML5 graphics engine - RuneTek 7 - which you'll be seeing much more of once we launch it for RuneScape later in the year. You can rotate, zoom and animate all of the available characters, share your favourites on Facebook, search for specific ones and view a variety of information about each of them, including:
  • Combat levels
  • Combat weaknesses
  • Life points
  • Slayer category
  • Where they can be found in-game.
As this is our very first reveal of this technology to the community, we're running the Bestiary as a beta. This means that you may experience crashes or other odd behaviour while you're using it. We'll be collecting error reports and usage statistics to help us make the technology stable and ready for the full release, but we need your help too. Send us bug reports when you experience issues using the Bestiary, and - as always - give us your feedback on the forums.
This is the first glimpse of the awesome upgrades coming within RuneScape which include upgraded graphics and draw distances, a smoother play experience, an amazing new top-level interface and - in the long run - compatibility with touch-screen devices. Now's the time to start getting your voice heard so we can make the new RuneScape the game that you want to see!

Have fun, and look out for an early-access beta of the new RuneScape graphics engine in the next few months.

The RuneScape Team

How to access the RuneScape Bestiary:

You can try out the beta version of the RuneScape Bestiary here.


To use the Bestiary, you will need to be running a recent version of Google's Chrome web browser. We're working on getting the Bestiary working with other browsers, but - at the moment - Chrome is the only browser with the full support for HTML5 that the Bestiary needs.
Chrome's already the most popular browser among RuneScape players, so you may well have it installed already. If not, you can get the latest version here.
With an up-to-date version of Chrome installed, we've found that the Bestiary works nicely on the following operating systems:
  • Windows: XP, Vista, 7 and 8
  • Mac OSX
  • Linux
  • Android 4.0 and above*
*For now, you'll need to download the beta version of Chrome for Android to get the Bestiary working. See our FAQ for details of how to do this.
Unfortunately, Chrome on iOS does not support the technology we require. As such, it's not possible to view the Bestiary on an iPad or iPhone at this time.
See our FAQ if you have any other questions or concerns.

28-Jan-2013 Demon Flash Mobs

28 January 2013 - 03:35 PM

Demon Flashmobs

Demon Flash Mobs are blazing their way to Gielinor this week. Team up with your friends and head to RuneScape's scariest areas, where you'll fight your way through waves of minions and take down demonic bosses. Succeed, and you'll earn demon slayer armour and crossbows: ranged gear with black dragonhide-level stats and bonus damage against demonic enemies!

Demon Flash Mobs (members only)

There's brimstone on the breeze this week as Demon Flash Mobs manifest in RuneScape, taking you to Gielinor's darkest places to test your team-based combat skills to the max!

Posted Image
While on members' worlds, those of you with combat level 120 or higher will receive hourly notifications in your chat boxes informing you of demonic incursions at any of 14 locations around the world, including the Wilderness. To take on these graphically reworked beasts, you'll need to gear up for combat and gather some friends, because this'll be no walk in the park.

Each invasion will be led by a demon boss, but initially he'll hang back and gather power while you fight his minions. These consist of imp heralds, lesser demons and black demons. Defeating all imp heralds will render the lesser demons vulnerable to attack, and defeating them will allow you to attack the black demons. The longer it takes you to defeat the lesser demons and black demons, the tougher the demon boss will be when he finally goes on the warpath, so take them down as quickly as you can!

When you face the demon boss, you'll notice that he'll have titles before and after his name. These give you clues as to his combat style and special abilities. For example, a demon named 'General Mord'uun the Blazing' would fight with accurate melee attacks (from 'General') which would cause additional fire-based damage over time (from 'the Blazing'). For a book giving further details on the meaning of demon names, speak to Brother Celerity in Edgeville Monastery.

When defeated, the demon boss can give some valuable drops. Best among these are pieces of demon slayer armour, along with main-hand and off-hand demon slayer crossbows. This awesome ranged gear has good stats - the armour is equivalent to black dragonhide, and the crossbows are better than rune crossbows - and you'll get a boost to damage dealt and experience gained while fighting demons for each piece of the gear you equip. A full set of the gear makes the crossbows better than their dragon equivalents when fighting demons! It's worth noting that fighting a flash mob in the Wilderness gives you a greater chance of getting a demon slayer gear drop, and other drops will be worth around three times as much as elsewhere!

So, buckle up your best smiting trousers and gather some strong friends to your side - it's time for some demon-slaying mayhem!

Mod Wilson

How to start Demon Flash Mobs:
  • Keep an eye out for announcements in your chat window (Please note: these can be switched off with the Doomsayer in Lumbridge, if you wish).
  • For further advice, speak to Brother Celerity in Edgeville Monastery.
  • You must be a RuneScape member.
  • It is strongly recommended that you have a combat level of at least 120 before fighting demon flash mobs, and you won't see any flash mob announcements until you have reached that level.
Demon Slayer Quest Rework (free players and members)

The Wilderness isn't the only place where demonic forces pierce the veil. In a rework of the old Demon Slayer quest, you'll help Grüfeld Bach - demon hunter extraordinaire - to foil a wicked plot against Varrock by finding the legendary sword Silverlight.

The new quest is a much more focused experience than its travel-heavy predecessor, as you complete trials to test your mind, body and spirit on your quest for the sword, and comes complete with shiny new graphics and amazing audio.

If you've already completed the old version of the quest, you'll be able to replay this one. You won't get any more Quest Points for doing so, though, and you won't need to complete the new quest in order to wear your quest cape or completionist cape.

Mod Liono

How to start Demon Slayer:
  • Speak to Grüfeld Bach in Varrock.
  • None.

  • An issue causing certain users' loading bars to become stuck at 50% has been resolved.

Patch Notes

21-Jan-2012 - Desert Tasks

21 January 2013 - 02:08 PM

Our latest Task Set - based around the Kharidian Desert, as per your feedback - is now available for all members! Eagle-dive into hay carts, fly on magic carpets and dominate the Dominion Tower to reap the treasures of the desert, including XP lamps, an upgradeable amulet, a daily supply of potato cacti, and much more!

Desert Tasks (members only)

It's Task time once again, and - in accordance with your feedback - our latest set is based in the sand-blasted splendour of the Kharidian Desert. For old-school veterans of the Achievement Diaries, this is a chance to add a new piece to your hard-earned Task gear collection and rack up some indispensable high-level rewards. For newer players, it's also a golden opportunity to discover the amazing content out there in Gielinor's arid lands, while picking up some sweet rewards in the process.

The 43 new Tasks are split into Easy, Medium, Hard and Elite categories, and encompass the full breadth of the desert's adventuring prospects. The Tasks range from such humble undertakings as catching a golden warbler or dancing with the troubadours outside the Citharede Abbey, right up to heroic feats such as completing every achievement within the Dominion Tower, or slaying a desert strykewyrm while equipped with a fully charged slayer helm and ancient staff.

Completing the Easy Tasks will earn you the Desert Amulet, which is upgraded with each consecutive tier of Tasks that you complete. Each upgrade increases the amulet's stats, and also adds handy functions to it. These include reduced failure on the Agility Pyramid; unlimited teleports to Nardah; and the ability to create a quota of molten glass each day only from soda ash, as long as you're within the desert.

There's a ton of rewards to be had beside the amulet, too, all of which apply permanently when you've completed the requisite tier of Tasks. These include discounts at the Mage Training Arena's pizazz store; access to an additional teak tree and sandstone rock; the opportunity to upgrade the stats of your ancient staff; and a free, daily supply of potato cacti. Last, but not least, you'll get lamps full of glorious XP with each tier that you complete - up to a whopping 160,000 XP for the Elite tier!

So - dust off your desert gear, top up your waterskin and bask in the oasis of Task-finishing fulfilment.

We'd love to hear your ideas for future Task Sets, so head on over to the Suggestions Forum and let us know!

Bank of RuneScape; Leaked Update?

22 August 2012 - 10:47 PM


Hi all,

I just wanted to send you some information about a “Bank of RuneScape” image which has been posted up on a couple of Fansites (Tip.it and Zybez so far from what we have found).

Many of your eagle eyed community members have already noticed but I thought I would confirm 100% that this is a fake. Please do let your community know if it does happen to get mentioned on your site.

Who would have thought a pet store would get used as a bank?! J

Many thanks,
