Content Poll #25 - Batch 1


This week Old School sees a fair few highly requested quality of life changes as well as the end of the goblin invasion.

Wyson, mole skins and mole claws

Wyson the gardener will now accept your noted mole skins and claws in exchange for birds nests.

When trading your skins and claws in at Wyson he will now give you nest boxes. These boxes will contain the appropriate amount of bird nests and can conveniently be emptied right into your bank.

Nest boxes can hold any number of nests, so there is no need to make repeated trips to Wyson. As long as you have 3 free inventory slots you will be able to claim your reward for any number of mole skins or claws.

Login/out message time-out toggle

We recently released a small update that made the "user has logged in/out" message disappear after 10 seconds. This was something that many players liked but some still wanted to see these messages for a longer period of time.

We have now released a toggle allowing you to decide whether or not these messages will disappear. If you fancy knowing who has logged in, no matter how long ago it happened, you can toggle the feature off. If you want to keep your private chance nice and clear, you can keep it on.

Goblin invasion - defeat

The goblin invasion has failed. General Danknuck and his forces were not able to penetrate the defences of Falador. The goblin armies have retreated and will have to re-think their plans if they ever want a chance at taking charge of Gielinor, maybe next year will be a little more successful.

If you didn't get a chance to get your hands on the event RPG, the massive paintball gun that allows you to 360NoScope players, you can pick one up from Diango in Draynor village. Grab your RPG, 360NoScope some noobs and make a sick montage if you haven't given it a go yet.

POH Portal & Clan chat previously entered name

When joining player-owned houses and clan chats, you will now see the option to join the last house or chat that you were in. This has been a very highly requested change and it is one that will make day-to-day life in Old School just that little bit smoother.


In other news...

  • A quick travel option has been added for Pest Control and Miscellania.
  • The alchemy value of the adamant platebody has been slightly increased from 7680 coins to 9984 coins.
  • A hard level coordinate clue where the wrong type of wizard was spawning has now been fixed.
  • The big pirate hat is now recognized as evil by Evil Dave.
  • The enhanced beckon emote audio can now only be heard by the player performing the emote.
  • The fairy ring travel log now remembers AJQ.

Later on today we will be introducing our new artist on the Old School developer Q&A livestream at 5pm BST. Make sure you come along and show him some love. You can catch it over on the RuneScape Twitch!

Thanks for the updates. One question with this line:

A Saradomin wizard will now appear for all coordinate clue scrolls outside of the Wilderness.


Is this a bug fix for some hard clues that weren't generating a wizard or is he now going to start appearing on the medium coordinate clues as well?

So no more Bandosian/Armadylian guards for elite clue scrolls?

Awesome. Hey - can we get a quick right click for Eluned enchanting the teleport crystals to Lletya?

I had a look at the code Mod Nexus wrote when he last worked on Eluned's chanting option. Shouldn't be too hard to tie in a right-click route.

Wait, what?

Yes, it's a bugfix. The affected clues were previously spawning a Zamorak wizard. They will now spawn a Saradomin wizard instead, as is proper outside the Wilderness.

Clues that previously didn't spawn a wizard will still not spawn a wizard.

Thanks for the clarification.

... where are the various new bh rewards? Was very much looking forward to them :(

I'm afraid you can't expect every update the day after its poll ends. They'll come.

Noobs...

And since you asked so nicely, we'll consider hurrying.
