Merry almost-Christmas, everyone!
And now a message from our sponsors the man himself: Mod Osborne:
Welcome to news post lite™. Many of us are taking time off to go back to our families, get jolly on mulled wine and play RuneScape Mobile prototypes under the table during Christmas dinner. This means that, until the first update on 8th January, things are going to be looking a little thin update-wise.
But don't worry! There's plenty coming in the new year, and we’ll be showcasing much of it in the Year Ahead video on the 5th of January. We’ll be covering RuneScape Mobile, Mining and Smithing, Bank Rework and a few surprises.
Most of all, I wanted to call out an incredible achievement. You may not be aware but, this year, you helped to raise over £200,000 rs07 gold for our chosen mental health charities (MIND, Prince’s Trust and YMCA). You have made a real difference in raising awareness and supplying help to those who need it. Thank you so much for being so generous!
We would also like to thank you for the support you’ve shown us this year. It’s been a rollercoaster - shifting from Expansions to Unfinished Business - and 2018 is driven by our dogged determination to repay your loyalty. The best way to do that is by making the updates you want, and to an undoubted quality. More about that in the Year Ahead.
While the next couple of weeks will see us going silent (night), it won’t be quiet ingame. Take advantage of Winter Weekends, the festive aura, the Advent Calendar, LootScape (guaranteed drops this week) and Premier Club, for which we have a few updates below. There's also Mod PurPur's Advent-ure Calendar, the Community Events team's Twelve Days of PvM, and the Winter Sweepstake, which could see you win a Razer Blade Pro!
In the meantime, if you’re missing updates from us, may our professionals recommend such coping mechanisms as: playing RuneScape, building snowmen (for those lucky enough to have snow) and spending time with loved ones and/or cats (the neighbourhood stray counts).
Bought Premier Club? Here are two highlights from this week's patch notes that might be applicable to you:
Gold Premier Club members now have access to both the two-handed Hellion Blade and the off-hand Hellion Blade override. Ironmen can now access the Premier Club Vault with their own drop table.
The new year bears all kinds of excitement. But for now, it's time to enjoy the festive season. Carol singing, anyone?
