Latest RuneScape News - 23rd October 2002

The mother of all updates has just landed!

New Quests:

Biohazard (Members' Quest) This is the second part of our large ongoing quest. Elena has been rescued, but now she needs your help to find a cure for the plague - so the fate of hundreds could rest in your hands! Find out if you're a thinker or a do-er ... because you'll need to be both.

Jungle Potion (Members' Quest) Trufitus Shakaya of the Taie Bwo Wannai Village requires that you collect five special jungle herbs for a potion so he can commune with his Gods. The jungle area has been greatly expanded for this quest.

New members town - The town of Yanille:

Explore this border town in the far south of Kandarin. Experienced Wizards will want to make use of the Wizards' Guild (magic level 66 to enter). Yanille also contains, a bank, a cookery shop, an inn and various other features.

New members spells - Enfeeble, stun, vulnerability:

You can now use more powerful high level versions of the the weaken, confuse and curse spells. They are cast using the new "soul rune", bought from the wizards' guild.

New features:

Dragon bones - Do you feel like you're praying in vain? Dragon bones can now be buried for a bigger prayer xp bonus than big bones.

Improved monster A.I. Monsters who are far weaker than you no longer auto attack. We thought it a bit strange that weak monsters were so stupid as to regularly commit suicide on a far stronger opponent, so they won't anymore. This also helps stop cheats who use programs to unfairly keep their character logged in at a respawn point, and gain combat xp unfairly.
