Before April gets busy with the launch of NXT and the vampire finale, this week has a smattering of helpful little improvements that make life in Gielinor sweeter. You can also get your hands on a completely free “mount”.
Solomon’s Store also welcomes a brand-new nautical outfit. Check it out and read on for all our live streaming info and other announcements.
Clans have received some love, and there are some useful changes to a host of items and NPCs amongst this week’s fixes. Check out everything that’s gone in game by reading the full patch notes in the forum thread - let us know what you think!
While there are no major updates this week, you can be sure that there are fantastic things coming in April. From a vampyre finale quest to the NXT client (18th April!), Mod Mark has you covered in his month ahead BTS video - give it a watch if you haven’t already.
Terrorbird Mounts | Get Yours For Free!
More than just an April Fools’ joke, our terrorbird “mounts” are available for free in Solomon’s Store from now until 23:59 on the 30th April. They might not get you round Gielinor any quicker but a mount’s a mount, right? Right?
Solomon’s Store | Navigator Outfits
Get yourself looking ship-shape with Navigator Outfits – now in stock in Solomon’s Store.
This nautically-inspired get up is perfect for showing off your navigational skills. Hop through your favourite shortcuts or stroll over to Port Sarim knowing that you’ll always put your best foot forward in this one.
Treasure Hunter will also be offering some more fantastic items this week – keep an eye out for the news post, coming soon!
