Clan Quality of Life Update

Mayday! Mayday! Oh wait, that was last week. Phew. Panic over. We do, however, have an alarming amount of content for you this week, including the long-awaited clan QoL changes and a reminder of the Song of Seren event this weekend.

What are you waiting for? Get reading!

Clan Quality of Life Improvements

Clans of RuneScape! Behold! The prophesied Quality of Life changes have finally arrived!

As of this week clans will be more fun than ever before, so there’s no better time to jump into clan life, make friends, and slaughter your enemies. Enjoy!

Here’s the full list of changes:

  • A special broadcast will fire to your clan every three months during your first year, and then again on your ‘clanniversary’ every year after that:
  • ‘Discord’ and ‘Invention’ have been added to the list of clan keywords.
  • ‘RuneScape 2007’ has been renamed to ‘Old School RuneScape’ in clan keywords.
  • When viewing a clan's Noticeboard, the title will now be the name of the clan.
  • Entries in the ‘place’ dropdown menu now default to ‘abandoned mine’ so that the Clan Noticeboard can be alphabetised.
  • The Clan Info interface has been refreshed and a clan’s creation date added:
  • The Vexillum option has been removed from the Noticeboard edit interface.
  • Clan event reminder notifications have been updated to include more information about upcoming events, and an event notification message will fire when an event has been running for 30 minutes.
  • You are now able to view the job title of a clan member by hovering over their rank icon in Clan Chat:
  • The Clan Log will be updated to show the last week’s visitor and capped count - for the latter to work, your clan citadel must have been rebuilt since this update.
  • Clans can set a total level requirement for joining their clan. If a player is invited who doesn't match the clan's requirement, they will not be able to join. If an owner invites a player, it will bypass this check.
  • Clan chat has also been improved:

  • You can now view the information of the clan you're guesting in by clicking the I button. You can also view that clan’s Noticeboard and see what events they have coming up:
  • When guesting in Clan Chat you will receive notifications to let you know when their events are starting.
  • Clan staff can set up a 'Guest Clan PIN' that will stop uninvited guests from entering the clan. If the PIN is changed, any guests reconnecting to the clan chat will be kicked out and will have to enter the right PIN to re-join:
  • Clans will be able to set a total level requirement for guests to join their clan chat in Clan Settings. This is to stop new accounts being made to flame clan chats.

    Song of Seren

    Keen-eared adventurers will remember that this weekend the Song of Seren will be heard all over Gielinor. This is your opportunity to earn an extra 1.5x XP in every skill, so keep an ear to the ground to find out which skill set is active, and when.

    Song of Seren will run from May 10th at 12:00 to May 13th at 11:59. That’s a whole weekend of skilling fun!

    For more information on the mechanics of the event, check out the original announcement, Or, if you’re interested in the motivations behind this sudden vocal expansion, have a quiet word with Seren’s emissary Endwyr, who can currently be found in Burthorpe.

    Time to Seren

    The Song of Seren event will be accompanied by a treasure hunter promotion similar to Time to Train but with a crucial difference: this time, the prizes on offer will be tailored to the current set of skills boosted by the Song of Seren.

    The Time to Seren promo will only sync when the Song of Seren event is live. From May 9th-10th, and after midnight on May 13th, the promo will distribute the regular selection of Time to Train prizes.

    Patch Notes

  • Praesul codex drop rate now scales to the amount of players in the fight so that smaller teams are better rewarded, up to the maximum of 7 players.
  • Upon entering the Combat Academy your pet/follower will now be hidden for other players, once you exit the Combat Academy your pet/follower will then reappear for other players.
  • Interested in the nitty-gritty stuff from this week’s update? Take a peek at the patch notes to find out more.
