The team has been busy beavering away and despite all the excitement of RuneFest we’ve managed to slip out another big improvement before we head to Farnborough – the Slayer Collection Log!
Slayer Collection Log
For a long time now, players have been able to keep track of the drops they get from bosses: now the same is true for slayer monsters. We hope that this will give slayers old and new a fresh reason to travel the world in search of ever more exotic quarry.
The Slayer Collection Log is split between 12 areas. When you complete an area’s collection, you’ll earn a special title:
And should you complete the whole log, you’ll earn the title 'the Ultimate Slayer'.
There will be global broadcasts for the first regular player, the first Ironman, and the first Hardcore Ironman who completes the log.
For those of you who have been informally collecting already, we have good news – any pets and untradeable items that you already own will be checked off automatically upon your next login.
Slayer creatures aren’t the only thing we’ve ticked off our list this week – we’ve also sliced up a fair few bugs. Here are some of the highlights:
Craving even more patch notes? Check out the full list here.
New merch is now available for pre-order in our online store! Revive the God Wars with the very first batch of Angels Scape’s new series of Pins and Keyrings, featuring Commander Zilyana, General Graardor and the Saradomin Sword. We've also added two new capes keyrings in stock – Defence and Prayer!
And as we’re getting closer to RuneFest, we will soon unveil a whole new range of goodies and merchandise to celebrate – including exclusive items. Don’t forget to download the RuneFest App if you don’t want to miss it!
