Hi everyone,

After looking at our approach for Elite Skilling Outfits and how they are obtained, we are announcing some changes to how you’ll be able to get your hands on these in the future.

We want Elite Skilling Outfits to become a high-level reward for playing relevant game content. Whilst Elite Skilling Outfits will still be obtainable (and introduced via) Treasure Hunter, they will be making their way into the game after a period of exclusivity. After a minimum of 4 months from their initial releases, the Elite Skilling Outfits (including the Dungeoneering outfits) will be obtainable via relevant skills or gameplay as a high-level reward. We are committing to this for any future Elite Skilling Outfits too.

You’ll also be seeing some near-immediate additions to the game, in that we will be making the Gemstone Golem outfit, as well as the Rune Ethereal outfit, obtainable from skill content in 2 weeks’ time (Monday 31st October)! We’ll let you know the ins-and-outs of how you’ll be able to obtain these in the next week.

Ultimately, as we have said in the past, our goal is to balance the commercial success of RuneScape and Jagex with the long term health of the game. This is one step towards this objective.

Thank you all for your feedback!

All the best,
The RuneScape Team

What took you so long


But wonderful news, I've long felt this would be an easy set of worthwhile rewards to add to new or existing minigames and other content. Now just don't make the cost too high

4-6 months sounds like a fair compromise to me. What I would like to see is these outfits added to mini-games and try and help lift their popularity again. Thank you Mod Balance; great info :)

Thank you Balance and rest of the team, really appreciate it. ^_^

Just to repeat part of what I posted in my original thread - will we see any changes to set effects with these updates or at some point?

Magic Golem could really do with some TLC - xp boost is fine but the LRC effect is a bit pointless once you move onto seren stones, arc content, etc

Would be good to see some teleports added perhaps? I'm sure more could tie in to this with the future mining/smithing update!
