If you're the adventurer who has to have it all, this week's update is for you. We've introduced new accolades for the most thorough of boss looters, and the Motherlode Maw's had an overhaul, making it more useful than ever for finishing those last few comp-cape requirements.

Read on!

Boss Drop Collections

If you're a seasoned boss battler, there's a new way to be rewarded for your dedication to pummelling Gielinor's biggest nasties: Collections.

Head to the Beasts tab, pick a boss, then click the new 'Collection' button beneath their picture. There, you'll see a list of drops that you'll need to obtain from the boss in question to earn an all-new title. Note that some items will already be ticked off, if you've obtained them.

There's a hidden achievement for each one, too, which will show up in the new 'Feats' section of the Achievements interface on completion.

Here are the titles you can claim:

  • [name] the Araxyte (Araxxi)

  • Kal-Haar-Xil [name] (TzHaar)

  • Graverobber [name] (The Barrows Brothers)

  • [name], Banisher of Shadows (Rise of the Six)

  • [name], Brawn of a Tsutsaroth (K'ril Tsutsaroth)

  • Legio [name] (Legiones)

  • [name] the Liberator (Liberator of Mazcab)

  • [name] of the Crossing (The Magister)

  • [name], Tenacity of Zarytes (Nex)

  • [name] of the Praesul (Nex – Angel of Death)

  • [name] the Dormant (Telos)

  • [name] the Lone Fury (Twin Furies)

  • [name] the Dragonrider (Vindicta & Gorvek)

  • [name] of Omens (Vorago)

Please note that some of the darker colours above have a drop shadow added for purposes of visibility. This won't appear in-game.

Good to see prestigious titles added.

Maw update devalues Kethsi though. Not sure why exclusivity is frowned upon in this game in this day and age.

I' m really really really angry that you added kethsi scrolls to that, I've killed 14000 rune dragons to get my 4/5 scrolls and now you're just giving it away, pathetic

Kethsi ring and Kethsi outfit scroll from the maw, that's DISAPPOINTING. You've ruined the integrity of that prestigious set.

However, other changes to the maw are very good, well done Mod Meadows.
