Pride T-Shirts
Celebrate Pride 2024 with Us!

Beam with PRIDE alongside us by wearing the official RuneScape & Old School RuneScape Pride 2024 T-shirt, designed in conjunction with both games' Pride Events!

This stylish and comfy t-shirt not only makes you look good on the outside but will also make you feel good on the inside, as proceeds from sale of the tee will go to an LGBTQIA+ charity!

We are partnering with AKT ( a national charity that specialises in working with LGBTQIA+ young people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or living in hostile environments.

Donations will be based on all revenue received by the store from sales of the tees, minus shipping fees/credit card fees, cost of the garment/printing and 5% to cover admin and fulfilment costs.

Orders for the tee will only remain open during Pride Month, ie until 3rd of July. Pick yours up here.

The rainbow print party hat and a commemorative neck label are printed on a super soft black Stanley Stella Creator tee. Printed using DTG printing. Made in Gielinor with pride!

Ultra+ Mode
Go further beyond

Are you a frequent in-game photographer? Think the shadows could do with a bit more darkness or just really like the words "graphical fidelity"?

Well there is some good news for you, with today's update we are launching an "Ultra+" option in the graphical menu that will take some settings like volumetric lighting, shadow quality , water detail and ambient occlusion and adds another notch above "Ultra" to "Ultra+" adding even more depth to the world!

Try it out in your Graphical Settings today!

Get Over here

As part of a recent game jam these terrifying scorpions got a face lift! Keep an eye out for the new models in your local mines and deserts.

Patch Notes
Fixes and Improvements in this Week's Game Update


  • Standing behind Osseous will no longer prevent players from evading Minion Summon Slam attack damage.


  • Added an Ultra+ graphics option to the Settings menu.
  • Graphically updated all scorpions across Gielinor.
  • Tweaked the Permafrost Knight Shield and Tundral Stalker Shield overrides to reduce clipping.


  • Corrected an issue that was preventing Occultist's Ring Shards from being combined to form the item.
  • Rex Matriarch Osseous now has her own entry in Bestiary.
  • Entering the Rex Matriarch lair will now place the player slightly closer to the arena entrance.
  • Added new teleportation options to the Osseous Teleportation Device with options to teleport into the Osseous Lair directly (For those fearless souls) or the small island.
  • Osseous will no longer deal damage during the death animation.
  • Updated some text in the learn section for the Osseous boss encounter to list the damage required to break free from the fear attack.


  • Readjusted the position of the UI in the Mage Training Arena minigame for mobile devices so it is no longer positioned in the middle of the screen. The minigame UI hides whenever the player extends their chat window.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the potion reservoir to consume charges even if its effect was not activated.
  • Fixed an issue with 'An Echo Throughout Time' not unlocking whilst playing through Desperate Measures.
    • If you have completed the quest and do not have the track unlocked, speaking to Seren at Burthorpe Castle will now unlock the track for you.
  • Removed a 2x2 forcewalk tile south-west of the Rellekka lodestone.
  • Moved the Challenge Scoreboard to the right side of the screen on mobile.
  • Added back in the current window resolution size in the full screen drop down menu while in windowed mode.
  • The 'cycle ammo' option on the 'Pernix's Quiver' no longer causes a crash for some players. For these players the state of the Quiver is now fixed so that they can store arrows in all slots.
