Ninja Graphical Updates | Skillcapes | Pyramid Plunder

The Ninjas have been sprucing up skillcapes and polishing Pyramid Plunder in today's two graphical updates.

Chameleon extract is the latest addition at Solomon's Store – a marvellous substance that lets you change your character's skin colour.

Finally, we've got some further details of the Questival - a lore-tastic fortnight of community events, starting today.

Read on for more information!


Last year, a poll passed to update skillcapes, and in the follow-up poll, you opted for a full overhaul to their design.

As of today, the iconic capes have a whole new look:

There's an added feature, too, as the hood traditionally bundled with the capes can be attached to the cape, so it shows hanging at the back. You can – of course – detach the hood, if you'd prefer to wear it as usual.

Pyramid Plunder

The Ninjas have also turned their attention to Pyramid Plunder, giving the minigame an updated environment, complete with moody, atmospheric lighting. A fresh embalming's done the guardian mummy the world of good, too:

There's updated music from the Audio Team as well, so listen out while you're loading up on artefacts.

Solomon's Store – Chameleon Extract

Time for a bold new look? A few dabs of chameleon extract might be just the ticket – available today at Solomon's Store!

Each pot of extract gives you one skin colour change, which lasts until you visit the Makeover Mage to undo it. There are a range of hues to choose from, too – 23 in total, from striking red to subtle violet.


If you're excited about the 200th Quest, Dimension of Disaster - coming later this month - we've got just the thing for you. Two weeks of quest-related awesomeness: welcome to Questival!

There'll be exclusive competitions and prizes, events, Q&A sessions, videos, and more – kicking off with a cool new title! During the two weeks, you'll be able to pick up 'The Prepared' title if you've completed all the requirements for the 200th Quest, namely:

So – get prepared! Find a Shield of Arrav partner, if you need one. This title will only be available for the next two weeks, so hurry!

There's information on what we'll be doing coming tomorrow – there'll certainly be something for everybody.


Have fun with today's visual improvements, and tell us what you think over on the forums.

EDIT: Okay! We heard you, the old capes are on their way back with an option to toggle between the updated and retro version. We’re working on it now, and it should be available in a couple of weeks!
