Remember username, tooltips, and Wilderness Wars!

August 24 2017
Remember username, tooltips, and Wilderness Wars!
This weeks sees the release of some long-requested changes to the login screen. Tooltips have been added to special attacks, and with them comes more toggles. Abyssal Sire tasks have received a quality of life update, plus our usual wide array of fixes and tweaks.


Remember/Hide Username



It's now possible to have your login username remembered between game sessions, which will be particularly beneficial to those of you who play just one account. Alongside this we have implemented to hide your username which will aid the more security conscious of you, or those who are in the public eye. Both the remember username option and the hide username option can be used concurrently. Turning off 'Hide username' will clear the username field, to prevent anyone from accidentally or deliberately trying to snoop your username.



Wilderness Wars


Above is a sneak peek of the new spectator interface developed for Wilderness Wars


Join us on Saturday 26th August 4pm BST /11am EST at twitch.tv/runescape for some Wilderness mayhem.

What is Wilderness Wars?
  • There are five Generals: Boaty, Knightenator, Mmorpg, Sick Nerd, and Torvesta
  • Each General has been given 49 codes to use to recruit and build their own army
  • There's a $15,000 prizepool to fight for: $5,000 for the last General standing and $2,500 for each confirmed General kill (4 x $2500 = $10,000)
  • Two enraged bosses roam the Wilderness each offering an upgrade of either weapons or armour for the team able to kill it (view a breakdown of the upgrades here)
  • Visit the Wilderness Wars page for more information about the event
