The following fixes and tweaks have now been implemented. If you believe a change has not been documented, either in the patch notes or the news posts for this week’s update, please detail the change so that it may be added.

As always, be sure to submit a bug report should you encounter a gameplay bug or graphical glitch in-game.





Graphical



  • Vorago's shadows during phase transition once again appear as expected.

  • The rod-o-matic spot animations no longer play while fishing for Sailfish. This makes the Swift sailfish spot distinguishable.

  • The Fury shark outfit animations no longer play when fishing for Jellyfish and Sailfish.



Skills, D&Ds, and Minigames



  • The whirlpool at the Deep Sea Fishing hub now tracks title progress correctly.

  • A 'Bang' option has been added to the ladders near the NPC Greg 'Groggy' Herring in the Deep Sea Fishing hub so that players can interact with him in Java.

  • The Fishing icon has been added to the mouse over on all the fishing spots in the Deep Sea Fishing hub.

  • The anti-griefing area has been mapped down at the Deep Sea Fishing hub, so cannons and similar items can no longer be placed.

  • The streak timer during Frenzy Fishing now refreshes when clicking the spot, rather than after successfully flinging a fish.

  • The 'message in a bottle' item now gives players the option to choose which boost they want, rather than applying one at random.

  • The Sea-monsters message has been updated to avoid confusion when using a raw fish in which he isn't interested.

  • Blue Blubber Jellyfish now heal for 750 per eat, not 1,000.

  • Prawnballs are now obtainable through all Fishing activities at the Deep Sea Fishing hub.

  • The left-click 'Use' option has been removed from the entry rowboat and replaced with the default left-click 'Bank'.

  • Raw great white sharks can now be used to feed the Sea Monster in the Deep Sea Fishing encounter.

  • The Deathbeard distraction at the Deep Sea Fishing hub now consistently gives XP.

  • The cooldown timer when fishing for Electrified Jellyfish can no longer be reset.

  • Sailfish now work with Calorie bombs.

  • Two previously problematic squares in the Fishing Frenzy area of the Deep Sea Fishing hub now display the Fishing Frenzy UI as expected.

  • Sign of the porters now works with the Deep Sea Fishing spots.

  • Ice dyes are no longer removed when repairing the Wand of the praesul, the Imperium core, the Khopesh of Tumeken and the Khopesh of Elidinis.

  • Exiting chat with an NPC after showing them a complete puzzlebox no longer re-shuffles the puzzlebox.

  • Players can no longer consume multiple puzzle-skipping tickets by accident.

  • Teleport checks no longer prevent players from teleporting with the Globetrotter outfit as intended. However, they still deduct a charge.

  • The puzzle picking code for elite clues has been updated to make puzzle boxes rarer and celtic knots more common, to be closer to the old chances. The distribution will be much closer to 50/50 now. The chance of a wizard has not been changed.

  • Using an augmentation dissolver on augmented limitless staves or elite Robin Hood gear now correctly retains the items upgraded state and just removes the augmentation.



Quests, Challenges, and Achievements



  • The following quality-of-life changes have been made to Rum Deal:

  • A sky box has been added to Braindeath Island.

  • The op has been removed from damaged farming patches.

  • The NPC's and zombies outside the factory now appear when you're on the first floor.

  • Rogue wooden floor textures were removed from the map edges during the ship battle scene. There is now also a skybox and an extended sea map.

  • Pirate NPCs are now aggressive on the enemy ship.

  • The custom interfaces within the repair and weapons boxes have been updated and now give players the exact items needed when clicked.

  • Planks from the repair box are now stackable.

  • The quest conclusion now provides reward lamps instead of flat XP.

  • A new left-click flow has been added to the gunpowder explosion when operating/repairing the cannon.

  • The plunder mechanic has changed as such: the barrel and box have been removed; players are now given a single lot of five plunder from the chest; players no longer need to wait for the chest to respawn; the chat and quest logs have been updated accordingly.

  • The 'When This Cavern's Rockin'..' achievement no longer completes when fishing rocktails during Deep Sea Fishing.
