RuneScore HiScores and Patches

How’s the farming going? We’re chuffed to see so many of you getting stuck into the Player Owned Farm update. It’s been great hearing about players shovelling endless amounts of poo and breeding all sorts of wonderfully characterful animals (Camilla the Hen, who “longs to capture humans and selectively breed them for fun and profit”, is a particular favourite)!

And rest assured – where there have been gripes we’ve heard you loud and clear, and we’re in the process of rolling out some updates to Granny Potterington’s estate. In fact we have a "shed load" of patches for your Farm this week!

In the meantime, however, we’re about to get super competitive with the arrival of RuneScore charts on the HiScores page. It’s time to sort the wheat from the chaff, as Granny might say.

RuneScore HiScores

Did you know that almost every Achievement in the game will add to your RuneScore? Smaller Achievements will only add a little, but the big ones will give you a huge boost! As of right now there are 1,980 in-game achievements, representing a possible RuneScore of 21,840!

We added RuneScore to the game back on August 29th 2017. Now we’re a year down the line it's time to spice it up a little, so this Monday (September 10th 2018) a RuneScore tab will be added to the HiScores page on the RuneScape website.

This means you’ll not only get to see who has the highest RuneScore, but also how far ahead you are of your friends… or how much further you have to go to catch them! We’re adding Achievements to the game all the time so this should give players plenty of opportunity to tussle for that top spot!


Why was the ninja’s sweatshirt so small? It got shuriken in the wash.

(If it helps, we are fully aware of just how awful that joke is.)

That unforgivable crime aside, here’s a few highlights of what the Ninja Team have been fixing in the Player Owned Farm update this week:

  • Going forward, Orlando Smith's hat is now tracked by the clue scroll log with an accompanying quick chat message.
  • After completing Observatory Quest, players have access to a quicker way to get back into the observatory.
  • Graphically improved the Earth Altar.
  • The servants have come back from their brief holiday - although they're not too happy about the farm that's just moved in!
  • Check out the rest of the patches here!
