Mining and Smithing... one week on

To say it's been a week of celebration would be an understatement, with RuneScape having turned 18 and the Mining & Smithing update releasing! The team are still hard at work fixing issues that have come up since the release, but we're delighted that players seem so happy with the changes we've introduced. As always you can find the full details of what has changed in our patch notes.

With all that in mind, we won't keep you long as no doubt you have Mining & Smithing gains to make!
