Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza 14/4/14

14 April 2014 - 10:47 AM

Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza

Brassica Prime and Marimbo have appeared near Lumbridge and the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza has kicked off! Also XP-giving Guthixian butterflies spread their wings once more.

Read on to find out more, or log into RuneScape right now!

Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza

Spring event, free players and members.

For our annual spring event, you voted for a Sixth Age battle between Marimbo and Brassica Prime. It's here - and RuneScape's never seen a contest quite like this! For two monkey-punching, cabbage-crunching weeks, the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza is underway!

Cabbage_Facepunch_Bonanza.jpg

Head over to the former Saradominist war camp near Lumbridge to find Marimbo and Brassica Prime facing off while Holstein of the Godless looks on - baffled and a little uncomfortable. They're holding a contest to determine who's the better god (or Godless), and their followers are competing in an underground arena in their name.

To play, pledge your loyalty to Marimbo, Brassica or Holstein. Be sure to stick your speakers on, as the three are voiced by the mighty Mods Michelle, Raven and Liono! Then, enter the circular zone between the two thrones. When there are enough players, the minigame will begin.

The Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza is played on a large field, with a safe zone on either side. It's played in a series of rounds, in which players have a short time to run from one side to the next while avoiding hazards. Earn points by getting from one side to the next, mining cabbage ore and punching monkeys.

If a player doesn't reach a safe zone in the time limit, or is killed, they will respawn in the middle zone as a gorilla. For the remainder of the game, their objective is to kill human players running across, earning points as they do so. The game ends when all players have become gorillas, or ten crossings have been made.

Reward points earned in the game can be spent on cosmetic capes, active and passive abilities to be used in the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza itself, and several handy items that you also voted for in a recent poll. Seedicide automatically destroys seeds when they drop in combat, for double the Farming XP you'd have got from planting them; patch bombs instantly clear a farming patch for the full amount of XP and items (noted); and slayer VIP tokens give you a choice of two targets when you next start a new slayer assignment.

Although the minigame and most rewards will remain after the event is over, you have just two weeks to help your faction to victory, and to claim the awe-inspiring capes. Get punching!

Enjoy, and let us know what you think over on the forums.

Guthixian Butterflies

Seasonal D&D, XP rewards are members only.

Last year, we let loose swarms of Guthixian butterflies as part of the Tribute to Guthix event. In memory of the slain god, the butterflies are back.

If you're a member, catching a butterfly grants you a chunk of XP in your lowest-levelled skill - much like Tears of Guthix. You can gain XP for catching up to 20 butterflies each day.

If you didn't before, you can collect up to 15 memories of Guthix by collecting butterflies. You'll get a memory every fifth catch, and can get up to four memories per day.

If you don' t have them already, you can claim the three-piece butterfly outfit, Butterfly Dervish emote and Sword of Edicts cosmetic override from Memstix, just north of Falador.

The butterflies will stay in game for two weeks - until the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza ends.

In Other News

Read the patch notes for further details of today's updates.

  • The Ninja Team have added two new sets of level 90 degradeable power gloves - the ascension grips for rangers, and the celestial handwraps for mages. These can be picked up from Order of Ascension members and celestial dragons, respectively, while on a slayer assignment for them.
  • Solomon's got some traditional Easter emotes in stock. Head on over toSolomon's General Store now!

Bank Updates - Quick Presets and Drag & Drop (7/4/13)

07 April 2014 - 10:19 AM

Bank Updates - Quick Presets and Drag & Drop

Managing your bank's quicker and easier than it's ever been with today's duo of updates. Equip a favourite set of combat gear or backpack-full of skilling items in the blink of an eye with quick loadouts, and clear out the clutter with ease with our new drag and drop to destroy function.

Read on for more information, or log in and give it go!

Take That to the Bank

Free players and members.

Quick presets are an easy way to equip yourself with an oft-used loadout of gear, or with a backpack of essential items for a skilling run.

The best way to see how it works is to give it a try. Log into the game and access your bank. From there, fill up your backpack and/or worn inventory with a setup you'd commonly use - gear up as if you were going on a Slayer task, for example, or if you were running to the anvil for some smithing.

From there, you'll be able to save your current backpack, worn inventory - or both - as one of a number of presets. Then, you'll be able to reload that preset from any bank, by clicking the 'load' icon next to the preset's entry. You can even assign up to two of these as 'quick load' options, accessible right from the bank interface itself.

In this way, it's easy to quickly gear up for an adventure, and your skilling will be smoother than ever.

Members get five of these presets from the off, and free players two. If you find you need more, you can rent them for a limited time - or even purchase more - using either Bonds, Loyalty Points or RuneCoins directly from the interface – there’s no need to go to Solomon’s General Store.

Enjoy, and if you have any questions, head on over to our FAQ.

Cleaning's Not a Drag

Free players and members

We've also added the ability to drag and drop items from your bank, should you wish to be rid of them. Note that this can only be used to destroy items - not to drop them on the ground.

This makes it easy to clear you bank of whole stacks of items without filling up your inventory with noted stacks first.

These two updates mean more time spent adventuring, and less time spent juggling your inventory. We hope you enjoy adventuring in a more convenient Gielinor - be sure to let us know what you think on the forums!

Power to the Players - New Poll System.

13 January 2014 - 04:07 PM

Power to the Players - New Poll System

Members only

The Power to the Players poll system is here!

From today, the future of RuneScape is in your hands. Through frequent polls - voted on in-game through the Community interface - you'll set the course for RuneScape's content updates. You'll vote on the order of our most anticipated releases; set the tone for our holiday events; decide which monsters are in need of a drop table rework, and much more.

From now on, almost everything headed for the game goes through you first. With your input into every major update we release, we'll make RuneScape the game that you want to play.

Read on for more details on Power to the Players, or log in and vote now!

You Decide

You can access the new poll system in the game itself. Open the Community (previously Social) interface, and you'll find the polls under the 'Vote Now!' tab.

Note that the quick polls displayed on the RuneScape homepage itself are not part of the Power to the Players system. We'll be adding a way to vote in the new polls to the RuneScape homepage soon.

Polls are divided into three types:

  • Dragonstone polls are where you'll decide the direction of the game - voting on topics that define what RuneScape is. You'll see our biggest blockbuster updates polled in the Dragonstone category - as seen in this month's Invention vs Elf City poll - as well as core mechanical changes, and other game-changing updates. There'll be just one Dragonstone poll each month, usually running for its entire duration.
  • Diamond polls cover major updates, or changes to key game features. You'll see two Diamond polls each month, running for up to a fortnight each.
  • Ruby polls get down to the nitty-gritty. They'll tend to be about specific aspects of upcoming updates, or content that caters to a specific group of players. You'll get three or four Ruby polls each month, each running for around a week.

There are three polls up and running already, which will stay open during the listed date ranges:

Dragonstone: Invention Skill vs the Elf City (13th January - 31st January)

In this month's big poll, you'll decide which of two hotly anticipated updates we create first: the Invention skill, or the Elf City.

Diamond: Drop Table Improvement (13th January - 20th January)

Decide which type of enemy you'd like to be less miserly with their drops, out of beasts, demons, elementals and ghosts. Alternatively, you can say they're all fine as they are.

Ruby: Decide on Maps for a New Minigame (13th January - 20th January)

We've got a doozy of a new minigame coming up soon, featuring instanced maps that are themed around iconic RuneScape regions. We've decided on several themes already, but here's your chance to pick one more: Ashdale, Canifis, Isafdar, the Wilderness, Zanaris, or none of these suggestions.

The following polls are coming later this month:

Diamond: Decide on a Spring Holiday Event (20th - 31st January)

Do you like your springtime celebrations traditional - an Easter-based theme, complete with bunnies and chocolate eggs aplenty - or would you prefer something different: an ape-vs-vegetable clash between Marimbo and Brassica Prime?

Ruby: Which New Dragon Would You Like? (20th to 27th January)

Choose which type of draconic foe you'd most like to tangle with: alchemical, celestial, gemstone, gold, or none of these.

Ruby: Should We Reduce the Number of Worlds? (27th to 31st January)

Reducing the number of game worlds would make those that remain livelier, with more players around to trade, talk and adventure with. Would you like us to do this, or would you prefer to keep the number of worlds as they are?

Cast Your Votes

Updates agreed on in these polls are guaranteed to happen, so choose carefully. However, you can change your vote up until the poll closes (10am GMT on the stated closing date), so you'll have time to think about your decision.

The first three polls are open right now, so get voting now! Be sure to visit our dedicated Power to the Players forum to give us your feedback, as well as your ideas for future polls.

RuneScape's your game - help us make it the game that you want it to be!

How to use the Power to the Players poll system:

Open the Community interface and select the 'Vote Now!' tab.

Requirements:

You must be a RuneScape member.

In Other News
  • Tonight - 5pm GMT on the 13th of January - the Community Team will be running a Q&A session on the new poll system. Head over to the Power to the Players forum from then to ask your questions.
  • Hati and Sköll will be menacing the Fremennik Province from the 16th of January.
  • World map icons are now divided into categories, and can be hidden or displayed as needed.
  • Zooming into or out of the world map using the mouse wheel now focuses the zoom on the mouse pointer.
