  • The purpose of this blog is to detail as much as possible prior to the poll going live in-game to allow for player feedback.
    Following feedback on previous blogs, we're trying something new this time by breaking things down into a lot more detail than usual. Also, we're purposefully not saying much about the actual quest and how it will play out as we don't want to ruin the surprise!


    "Prove yourself a true champion. Kill the mighty dragon Elvarg of Crandor and earn the right to buy and wear the Rune Platebody" It has been 16 years to the day that the earliest Champion first heeded these words and set upon one of the most iconic challenges within RuneScape. In answering this call to arms the great adventurer would navigate Melzar’s Maze, traverse the island of Crandor and inflict revenge upon Elvarg.



    The Quest

    30 years prior to the fateful day a mighty adventurer awakened Elvarg from her slumber, Crandor was a thriving and very much alive island, with a great tradition of mages and adventurers. The history of the Crandor is a bold one, enough so that many a Crandorian earned the right to be part of the Champions' Guild! The Crandor we know today is very different from that of the past and there are so many questions that remain unanswered - your chance to uncover the secrets of the past starts with Dragon Slayer II.

    Dragon Slayer II will lead you on an adventure across the game, visiting locations new and old. Along the way, you will uncover new lore on the Dragons, as well as hearing the story of many a brave hero. Expect to complete challenging puzzles, traverse through undiscovered dungeons with multiple threats and face against some of the most fearsome foes we’ve ever introduced into the game! Dragon Slayer II will be a new Grandmaster quest with some of the highest requirements for any quest to date. For such a challenge, those able to complete the quest are sure to be rewarded greatly – so much so that we are detailing and offering all rewards separately.

    Poll Question
    Should we add the quest Dragon Slayer II to Old School RuneScape? Completion of the quest will reward players with 5 Quest Points.



    The Myths Guild


    Images and detail are currently a WIP and are subject to change

    "As time passes, that which was once fact, becomes myth. Some tales are just that, tales. However, some tales are something more..." - Alec Kincade, Guildmaster.

    The Myths Guild is a new guild located on a small island south of Feldip Hills. It is a guild dedicated to unearthing fact and dispelling notions of fiction. The island is accessed via a small bridge from the mainland. Players with 200 or more quest points will be able to enter the lobby of the guild. However, full access to the guild is only available to players who have completed Dragon Slayer II.

    The Myths guild will contain:

  • A bank (with deposit box and poll booth)
  • An armoury containing a shopkeeper and an anvil.
  • A kitchen containing a range and a sink
  • A garden containing 4 Magic Trees.
  • A mine containing 4 Adamantite rocks and 2 Runite rocks.
  • A chapel containing an altar.
  • The Fountain of Myths - Can be used to recharge Skills necklaces, Combat bracelets and Amulets of glory. You will not get the chance of an Eternal glory.
  • A portal chamber with portals to the Champions' Guild, Heroes' Guild and Legend's Guild.
  • A library with various lore books.
  • A dungeon containing a selection of Blue, Red and Black Dragons (including baby dragons).

  • The armoury store will sell the following items:

  • Dragon dagger (30,000 coins)
  • Dragon mace (50,000 coins)
  • Dragon longsword (100,000 coins)
  • Dragon battleaxe (200,000 coins)
  • Shield right half (750,000 coins)
  • Dragon metal shard (2,000,000 coins) if Dragon Kiteshield/Platebody are added to the game only

  • Poll Question
    If Dragon Slayer II is added, should we add the Myths Guild as described in the Dev Blog? Completion of Dragon Slayer II will be required to enter the Guild.

    Poll Question
    If the Myths Guild is added to the game, should it include a small selection of Green Dragons alongside the proposed dragons as described in the Dev Blog?

    Mythical Cape
    The Mythical Cape is a new cape which will provide unlimited teleports to the Myths Guild. It can be reclaimed from the armoury if lost. The cape would have no stats and other than the teleport will be for cosmetic purposes only. The teleport location will be further away from a bank than the current Crafting Guild teleport.

    Poll Question
    If we add the Myths guild, should you be able to obtain a Mythical Cape within the Guild? This cape would provide unlimited teleports to the Guild.

    We've had a lot of feedback regarding the Mythical Cape being cosmetic, and a lot of you would like to see it with some stats instead. We're happy to offer this as a seperate addition to the existing cape. We're proposing placing it somewhere between the Cape of Legends and Fire cape, with the addition of some Crush Attack bonus.


    Poll Question
    If the Mythical Cape is added to the game, should it have the stats as proposed in the Dragon Slayer II Dev blog rather than be cosmetic only?" - Reword to "If the Mythical Cape is added to the game, should it have the stats shown in the attached image? If this question fails, the cape will be cosmetic only.

    Superior Antifire Potions
    Upon completion of the quest, players will be able to talk to an NPC in the Myths guild to unlock the ability to create Superior antifire potions. Superior antifire potions can be created by combining Antifire potions with crushed Superior dragon bones, provided the player has a Herblore level of 92. Superior dragon bones will be covered later in this blog. Mixing a Superior antifire potion will yield 130xp per potion.
    Superior antifire potions are tradeable and will provide complete fire protection for 2 minutes. Creating Superior antifire potions will provide minimal amounts of xp and should not be considered an effective way of training herblore. The using and trading of Superior antifire potions does not require completion of Dragon Slayer II, only the making of the potions requires quest completion.

    Poll Question
    If we add the Myths guild, should the Guild contain an NPC who can teach you how to create Superior antifire potions? These potions would offer full protection from Dragonfire, but only for two minutes. These potions would require 92 Herblore to make and would yield 130xp per potion.


    Wrath Altar and Surge Spells

    The Wrath Altar
    Players with 95 and above Runecrafting would be able to craft a new tradeable Rune, known as Wrath runes. This would be done via the Wrath altar located within the guild. The altar is guarded by Dragons found within the Guild dungeon - these will not include Adamant or Rune Dragons. Access to the guild and the altar would only be unlocked after completing Dragon Slayer II. Players will need a Wrath talisman which would be dropped by Adamant Dragons, Rune Dragons or Vorkath – if the Wrath talisman was not added to the drop table of these NPC’s then we cannot add the Wrath altar. A Wrath tiara can also be used which is made in the usual way.

    Images and detail are currently a WIP and are subject to change

    Crafting Wrath runes will provide less xp/hr than lava runes (approx. 30k/hour) and will require traversing through a dungeon filled with aggressive dragons of varying strength or via the Abyss. The use of the Abyss will be slower than going through the guild dungeon.

    Wrath runes will be used in the Surge spells if they are added to the game. If the altar does not get added to the game and Surge spells pass the poll, the only way to obtain these runes will be via NPC drops. If the Wrath runes were not added to the drop table of these NPC’s then we cannot add the Surge spells.
    Wrath runes and the Surge spells can be used without completing the quest. The Ourania Altar will not give Wrath runes.

    Poll Question
    If we add the Myths guild, should the Guild contain the Wrath Altar? Players with 95 Runecrafting would be able to craft Wrath Runes at the Altar for approximately 30k xp/hr.

    Poll Question
    If we add the Wrath Altar, should it be possible to use the Abyss to avoid traversing through the Myths Guild dungeon? Using the Abyss would be slower than going through the guild dungeon.

    Surge Spells
    We often get asked to give the Standard Spellbook some much-needed love and attention. With the possibility of Wrath runes being added to the game, now feels like the perfect time to introduce Surge Spells to Old School! The animation for these spells would be similar to the original design when they were first added.

    Wrath runes and the Surge spells can be used without completing the quest

    Note: the max hits listed below do not include the use of any damage boosting gear.



    The Tome of Fire will work with Fire Surge.

    Poll Question
    Should we add Surge spells to the game? These would form part of the standard spellbook and offers spells from Wind Surge (81 Magic) through to Fire Surge (95 Magic).


    New Boss & Special Drops

    Vorkath
    Dragon Slayer II is sure to challenge your wits, as well as offering many a tough NPC you’ll have to defeat! We want to extend this challenge further by adding a new solo boss into the game – Vorkath (Who can be seen in the artwork heading this post). Vorkath will be a brand-new Dragon boss offering the long awaited upgrade to the accumulator, Ava’s Assembler, which is a new best in slot ranged cape, alongside a new ranged shield similar to the Dragonfire Shield known as the Dragonfire Ward.

    Poll Question
    If Dragon Slayer II is added to the game, should we add Vorkath, a new high level solo boss to the game? The boss would have a combat level between 600 and 700 and kills will be tracked in the boss log. Players would be able to receive Vorkath as a boss slayer provided they have been unlocked. Only players who have completed Dragon Slayer II will be able to fight Vorkath.

    Superior Dragon Bones
    Vorkath will guarantee two bone drops per kill. These tradeable bones give 150 Prayer xp when buried making them the best bones in the game. However, they will require a Prayer level of 70 to use. Superior dragon bones can also be crushed with a Pestle and Mortar to create Crushed dragon bones which are a secondary ingredient in Superior antifire potions. Use of the bones will not require completion of the quest.

    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop Superior dragon bones? These bones would give 150 Prayer xp when buried but would require a Prayer level of 70 to use. These bones would be tradeable and would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Dragon Bolts
    Vorkath will drop Dragon bolts (unf). Players with 84 Fletching will be able to add feathers to these to make Dragon bolts. Dragon bolts will be new crossbow bolts that can be fired from Dragon Crossbow, Dragon hunter crossbow and Armadyl crossbow. Dragon bolts (unf) and Dragon bolts will be tradeable. Use of these bolts in any form will not require completion of the quest. Adding feathers to Dragon bolts (unf) will yield 12xp per completed bolt.



    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop Dragon bolts (unf)? Players with 84 Fletching would be able to turn these into Dragon bolts yielding 12xp per bolt. These bolts would be tradeable and would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Poll Question
    If Dragon bolts (unf) are added to the game, should it be possible to add all current bolt tips to the finished product? They would have the same effect as current bolts, with the only difference being that they would have the same Ranged Strength as Dragon Bolts. These bolts would be tradeable and would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Wrath Talisman
    Vorkath will drop the Wrath Talisman which is a tradeable talisman that can be used to gain access to the Wrath Altar. A Wrath tiara can be created from a Wrath talisman. This would only be added if the Wrath Altar is added to the game.

    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop a Wrath talisman? These talismans would be tradeable.

    Wrath Runes
    Vorkath will sometimes drop a moderate amount of Wrath runes. Wrath runes would be a new tradeable rune used to cast Surge spells should they be added to the game. If the Wrath Altar does not get added to the game this will be one of the only source of Wrath runes. Wrath runes and the Surge spells can be used without completing the quest.

    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop a moderate amount of Wrath runes?

    Dragonbone Necklace
    Vorkath will rarely drop the Dragonbone Necklace, a tradeable necklace. The necklace will require 80 Prayer to equip and when worn it will restore prayer points when bones are buried. The amount of prayer points restored will vary depending on the bone buried with higher level bones giving more prayer points – this will use the same scaling as burying bones in the Kourend Catacombs. Completion of the quest is not required to equip the necklace.

    This effect would not stack with the Kourend Catacombs prayer perk.
    The bonecrusher effect will work the the necklace.
    Equipping the necklace will reduce players remaining prayer points by 50% - this would apply regardless of whether you are in combat or not. The reason behind this is to prevent players swapping to and from the necklace solely to gain prayer points on demand.



    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop the Dragonbone Necklace as described in the Dev Blog?

    Skeletal Visage & Dragonfire Ward
    Vorkath will drop the Skeletal visage, a tradeable ranged version of the Draconic visage. Players with 90 Smithing can combine an Anti-dragon shield with a Skeletal visage to create a Dragonfire ward, a new ranged version of the Dragonfire shield which Requires 75 Defence and 70 Ranged to equip. Completion of the quest is not required to equip the Dragonfire ward. The experience gained from smithing the Dragonfire ward would be similar to that of the Dragonfire shield. The Dragonfire ward is charged and uncharged in the same manner that the Dragonfire shield.

    The Dragonfire Ward can hold up to 50 charges and is charged by absorbing dragonfire attacks in the same way that the Dragonfire Shield does. For every charge, the Melee and Ranged defensive bonuses increase by +1. The stats shown in the image below are the stats of the Ward when it is fully charged. The Ward has the same special attack as the Dragonfire Shield and is discharged in the same way.



    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop the Skeletal Visage? Players with 90 Smithing would be able to use the Visage to create the Dragonfire Ward, which would also be added to the game. The Dragonfire Ward would require 75 Defence and 70 Ranged to equip and it would be charged in the same way as the Dragonfire Shield. Both the Visage and the Ward would be tradeable and they would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Vorkath’s Head & Ava’s Assembler
    Vorkath will rarely drop his head. Players can take this head along with 75 Mithril arrows and an Ava’s accumulator to Ava in Draynor Manor to obtain an Ava’s assembler, a new best in slot ranged item for the cape slot. Ava’s assembler can randomly gather mithril ranged items. This would require 70 Ranged to equip. Both Vorkath’s head and Ava’s Assembler will be untradeable. There will be a max cape version of Ava’s Assembler. The Assembler would have an 80% chance of saving ammunition versus the 72% of the Accumulator - the other 20% would still break and be lost. Vorkath's head would be a fairly common drop (below 1/50).



    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop Vorkath’s Head? This would be used to create the Ava’s Assembler, a new best in slot ranged item for the cape slot, which would also be added. The Assembler would require 70 Ranged to equip. Both the Head and the Assembler would be untradeable meaning they would require completion of Dragon Slayer II to use.

    Poll Question
    If Vorkath is added to the game, should it drop Vorki? Vorki is a new untradeable pet based off of Vorkath.



    Metal Dragons & Special Drops

    With the introduction of a quest based around dragons, it seems fitting we should offer a new NPC for you to slay! With the current metal dragon’s lineage ending at Mithril, we’d love to finally give you the chance to add both Adamant and Rune dragons to the game!

    Images and detail are currently a WIP and are subject to change

    Adamant Dragons
    Adamant Dragons would have a combat level of around 340. Killing Adamant Dragons will require completion of the quest. They will have a guaranteed drop of 2 Adamant Bars per kill.

    Poll Question
    If Dragon Slayer II is added to the game, should we introduce Adamant Dragons as described in the Dev Blog? Only players who have completed Dragon Slayer II will be able to fight these dragons.

    Rune Dragons
    Rune Dragons would have a combat level of around 380. Killing Rune Dragons will require completion of the quest. Rune Dragons would offer the same drops as Adamant (minus the bars), although they will NOT drop the Dragon Metal Slice. You would still be able to get the Dragon Limbs which are used to create the Dragon Crossbow. They will have a guaranteed drop of 1 Rune Bar per kill.

    Poll Question
    If Dragon Slayer II is added to the game, should we introduce Rune Dragons as described in the Dev Blog? Only players who have completed Dragon Slayer II will be able to fight these dragons.

    Superior Dragon Bones

    Guarantee of one drop per dragon, these tradeable bones give 150 Prayer xp when buried making them the best bones in the game. However, they require a Prayer level of 70 to use. Superior dragon bones can also be crushed with a Pestle and Mortar to create Crushed dragon bones which are a secondary ingredient in the potential new Superior antifire potions. Use of the bones will not require completion of the quest.

    Poll Question
    If Adamant and/or Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop Superior dragon bones? These bones would give 150 Prayer xp when buried but would require a Prayer level of 70 to use. These bones would be tradeable and would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Dragon Bolts
    Players with 84 Fletching will be able to add feathers to these to make Dragon bolts. Dragon bolts will be new crossbow bolts that can be fired from the Dragon Crossbow (if added to the game), Dragon Hunter Crossbow and Armadyl Crossbow. Dragon bolts (unf) and Dragon bolts will be tradeable. Use of these bolts in any form will not require completion of the quest.



    Poll Question
    If Adamant and/or Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop Dragon bolts (unf)? Players with 84 Fletching would be able to turn these into Dragon bolts yielding 12xp per bolt. These bolts would be tradeable and would not require completion of the quest to use.


    Dragon Crossbow
    Dragon limbs are a new tradeable item that can be used to create the Dragon crossbow. Players with 78 Fletching will be able to create a Magic stock from Magic logs which can be used with Dragon limbs to create a Dragon crossbow (u). This can then be strung with a crossbow string to create a Dragon crossbow. The Dragon crossbow will sit between the Runite crossbow and the Dragon hunter crossbow. The crossbow will be tradeable and will require 64 Ranged to equip. Completion of the quest is not required to equip the crossbow. The experience gained from fletching the crossbow would be similar to that of the Rune crossbow.

    We would also like to add a special attack to the crossbow, known as "Annihilate". Annihilate will use 60% of the players special attack energy. The primary target of the Annihilate special attack will take 20% extra damage, both in PvP and PvM. All other targets will take 20% less damage, both in PvP and PvM. If used in a single-way area, the attack will still work but only hit one target with 20% extra damage.



    Poll Question
    If Adamant and/or Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop Dragon limbs? Players with 78 Fletching would be able to use these to make a Dragon crossbow. The Dragon crossbow would require 64 Ranged to equip. Both the limbs and the crossbow would be tradeable and they would not require completion of the quest to use.

    Poll Question
    If the Dragon Crossbow is added to the game, should it have the Annihilate special attack? Annihilate will use up 60% of the players special attack energy and will damage any enemy in a 3x3 area provided the area is multi-combat.

    Wrath Talisman
    The Wrath Talisman is a tradeable talisman that can be used to gain access to the Wrath Altar. A Wrath tiara can be created from a Wrath talisman. This would only be added if the Wrath Altar is added to the game.

    Poll Question
    If Adamant and/or Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop a Wrath talisman? These talismans would be tradeable.

    Wrath Runes
    Wrath runes would be a new tradeable rune used to cast Surge spells should they be added to the game. If the Wrath Altar does not get added to the game this will be one of the only source of Wrath runes. Wrath runes and the Surge spells can be used without completing the quest.

    Poll Question
    If Adamant and/or Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop a small amount of Wrath runes?

    Dragon Kiteshield
    The Dragon metal slice would be tradeable drop from Adamant Dragons and can be combined with the Dragon metal shard (from the Myths Guild Armoury) by players with 75 Smithing to create a Dragon Kiteshield. The Dragon Kiteshield will be tradeable and will require 60 Defence to equip. The experience gained from smithing the kiteshield would be similar to that of the Dragon sq shield.



    Poll Question
    If Adamant Dragons are added to the game, should they drop a Dragon Metal Slice? Players with 75 Smithing would be able to use this along with a Dragon Metal Shard to make a Dragon Kiteshield, which would also be added to the game. Both the Dragon Metal Slice and the Dragon Kiteshield would be tradeable.

    Poll Question
    If the Dragon Kiteshield is added to the game, should it also require a Dragon Square Shield to create? The Square shield would be consumed in the process.

    Poll Question
    If the Dragon Kiteshield is added to the game, should the completion of Dragon Slayer II be required to equip it? If this question fails, the Dragon Kiteshield would not require any quests to equip.

    Dragon Platebody
    The Dragon metal lump would be tradeable drop from Rune Dragons and can be combined with the Dragon metal shard (from the Myths Guild Armoury) by players with 90 Smithing to create a Dragon Platebody. The Dragon Platebody will be tradeable and will require 60 Defence to equip. Completion of the first Dragon Slayer will be required to equip the platebody. The experience gained from smithing the platebody would be similar to that of the Dragon sq shield.



    Poll Question
    If Rune Dragons are added to the game, should they drop a Dragon Metal Lump? Players with 90 Smithing would be able to use this along with a Dragon Metal Shard to make a Dragon Platebody, which would also be added to the game. Both the Dragon Metal Lump and the Dragon Platebody would be tradeable. Players would need to complete the original Dragon Slayer to be able to equip the Dragon Platebody.

    Poll Question
    If the Dragon Platebody is added to the game, should it also require a Dragon Chainbody to create? The Chainbody would be consumed in the process.

    Poll Question
    If the Dragon Platebody is added to the game, should the completion of Dragon Slayer II be required to equip it?

    Slayer Task Extension
    If Adamant and Rune dragons are added to the game, they will be added to the current list of metal dragon slayer tasks if you have completed the quest. Both Adamant and Rune dragons will be assigned by Nieve/Steve and Duradel. The weighting on them is fairly low, and the amount to kill will be small. We would like to offer you a way of extending these, should you wish to.

    Poll Question
    If Adamant Dragons are added to the game, should we add a separate slayer task extension for them?

    Poll Question
    If Rune Dragons are added to the game, should we add a separate slayer task extension for them?


    Filling in the Blanks (Literally)

    After years of development, adding new content and expanding upon new areas, it seems like we have some space left on the map to fill – something you’ve noticed too! We’ve heard your requests to fill in these blank spots found throughout the world map and as such we’d like to offer adding new content available to both members and F2P.

    Images and detail are currently a WIP and are subject to change


    The Corsair Cove
    The Corsair Cove will be located in the South East of Feldip Hills. The settlement will have walls on all sides with the only access points being a gate in the west wall and the docks. The settlement will be inhabited by Pirates called Corsairs. F2P players will be able to access the Cove via a free ship from Port Sarim. Members will additionally be able to use Charter Ships to and from the Cove. The cove will contain a few low-level fishing spots and trees along with a bank and a dungeon. The dungeon will contain brand new NPCs for players to kill with the aim to offer an alternative location for players to train for a small profit. There would be no notable drops from these NPC’s. The gate to the west will be guarded by a corsair who will only let the player out if they have completed Dragon Slayer.

    Poll Question
    If the Myths Guild is added, a new area called The Corsair Cove will also be added as described in the Dev Blog. Should the Cove be accessible to F2P players? The Cove would have no requirements to access.

    The Corsair Curse
    The Corsair Curse will be a novice quest which is started by talking to the Corsair Captain at the crossroads north of Port Sarim. Completion of the quest will reward players with 2 quest points and access to the bank within the cove.

    Poll Question
    If the Corsair Cove is made F2P, should we add a new F2P quest called The Corsair Curse? This quest would award 2 quest points on completion along with access to a new bank within the Cove.

    The Corsair Cove Expansion
    The expanded area will be cut off from the rest of Feldip Hills by a dense forest. There will be two areas where members can pass through the forest but F2P won't be able to. The southern Feldip Hills will contain a second dungeon with more of the new NPC (it will be linked to the first dungeon with a members only shortcut). As well as this, the area will contain a mining site with 5 coal, 2 mithril and 1 adamant rock, Yew trees and some fishing spots with Swordfish and Lobster. Players in this area will be able to see the Myths Guild and talk to the Guildmaster.

    Poll Question
    If the Corsair Cove is made F2P, should we also add the Corsair Cove Expansion as described in the Dev Blog? The expansion will be available to both P2P and F2P but it would require completion of the original Dragon Slayer to enter.

    Poll Question
    If the Corsair Cove Expansion is added, should it include a selection of Maple trees alongside the proposed Yew trees? Note that this will make Maple trees accessible in F2P.
