Penance Pet & Super Combat Potions

It is time, once again, to board the pet hype-train... The penance pet is here!

Penance pet

The challenge of taking on the Penance Queen is one that has beaten many good players in the past. We felt that players who have mastered the art of egg-launching should have a shot at getting their very own penance creature, and you agreed.

The penance pet is now available as a rare reward from high level gambles at Barbarian Assault. If you've ever, for some strange reason, wanted a miniature version of the egg-spewing behemoth to show off around Gielinor make your way to Barbarian Assault and find yourself a team.

Barbarian Assault gamble improvements

The Barbarian Assault gambles have never really been particularly rewarding, receiving a dragon chainbody from a high level gamble was about as good as it could get and that was so rare that we weren't sure if it had ever happened in the history of RuneScape.

The rewards from the Barbarian Assault gambles have been significantly improved to make them a much more appealing way of spending your points. If you want to try your luck then head over to Barbarian Assault and say goodbye to those hard-earned points.

Super combat potions

Inventory space is something that is very valuable to anyone taking on a combat-based challenge. Whether it is PvMers trying their chances in the God Wars Dungeon or PKers in a full-out war, every little helps. Super combat potions are now available that combine super attack, defence and strength into one handy potion.

Using a torstol on a super defence, attack or strength (4) when you have all three in your inventory will create a super combat potion (4). This potion will not give any additional boosts, it will simply combine the super sets into one potion.

Previous display name

If someone on your friends list has recently changed their name you will now be able to see what they were previously known as by hovering over the small icon that will appear. This should make keeping track of who-is who much easier.

In-game poll preparation

This week we have launched infrastructure in preparation for the release of in-game polls next week. We are going to be testing in-game polls in the live version of the game to make sure everything is running as it should be. A few of you may stumble upon a polling booth but, for now, it will be out of order.

In other news...

  • Bandos boots now offer +15 range defence.
  • The Trident of the Seas no longer damages Salarin the Twisted.
  • Ankous within the Wilderness now drop large quantities of dark fishing bait.
  • Pyramid Plunder exits now have a right-click quick-leave option.
  • A furnace and anvil have been added to the Wilderness Resource Area & Piles will now note metal bars.
  • Grinding items with a pestle and mortar now automatically begins to grind all of that item in your inventory.
  • The Clan Cup Skilling Arena has been revamped once more to accommodate Thieving and Fishing weeks.
  • Fixed a typo on the alchemy warning and in the magic skill guide.
  • BigRedJapan now waves rather than shouting at you.
  • Made further tweaks to the game filter.
  • We've limited the number of clockwork toys that can be dropped in an area.
  • Bandos cloaks and mitres are now available from medium clue scrolls after accidentally being left off the reward list.

I don't like the super combat potions, there was nothing wrong with normal super sets. But the penance pet and name change orbs are awesome! :)

Also isn't it a bit weird that someone can afford to keep a furnace running in the middle of the wilderness? Wouldn't a vulcano or something have made more sense as a furnace in the resource area?
Zaros is evil: "Zaros plainly requested the use of twelve legions of demons. (..) Zaros offered the secrets of travel between the worlds, to allow the Chthonians to devour whole new races rather than be reduced to preying on each other." From Sliske's Memory

Awww, that means the minigame tele is coming next week :(

Sadly we can't deliver every single thing for the day after the poll ends! The rest of the stuff will come in time.

will spec % being visible without a spec weapon be removed from orion since it failed the poll?

What they've got is different from what we were offering. I wasn't expecting Orion to make any changes.
