Graphical Area Updates - This Week In RuneScape

The Gielinor glow-up continues with more graphical updates!

Graphical Updates Continued!
Karamja looking pretty fire...

The environment team have knocked it out the park again with more graphical updates from Game Jams and beyond. Special mention to Mod Alex and Mod Blkwitch for their stunning work across Gielinor!

From the frozen peaks of White Wolf Mountain to the lush greenery of Shilo Village, itís been a veritable spring-clean. Check out the before and afters:

So thatís updates to Karamja, Crandor, Burthorpe, Taverley, Rimmington, Mudskipper Point, Southern Asgarnia, Lumbridge Swamp, Catherby, and (deep breath) some little extra tweaks to Draynor and Port Sarim.

We hope you're enjoying the Gielinor glow-up. If you have any suggestions for areas that could use a fresh coat of paint, let us know!


Forinthry Frontier Yak Track Update
Extended until June 11th

Forinthry Frontier has been rewarding Skill and Killers and Triumphant Trackers alike, but we've heard a lot of feedback around it, too. We've heard from many players that the amount of rewards on the track, along with the scale of these challenges, has been a bit daunting.

With that in mind, we're extending the Yak Track so you've got more time to earn and progress your track and get those goodies! Make that extra time count!


  • Track is extended until June 11th
  • Amnesty for unclaimed items will last until June 18th

Treasure Hunter Calendar
What's up next on the calendar?

Starts May 11th | Ends May 17th | Looting Range

Take aim and let loose at the Looting Range to win the fabulous new Woodland Archer's Outfit! And if your aim is right and luck is on your side, you could also win the Ranger Roll Walk Override...
