New Merch Lines
Christmas gift ideas and a Black Friday offer

Cue sleigh bells and a ho-ho-ho because the Christmas lines are here! Get into the festive spirit by treating yourself to some new merch – er, sorry, adding them to the gift list for other people. Yeah.

First up is 2022's Xmas Jumper, and this time a festive Gnome Child takes centre stage! The Father Gnome Child Xmas Jumper also boasts a colourful pattern of Party Hats, crackers, snowballs, scarves and trees.

Perhaps you're somewhere a little warmer this festive season? Don't worry, we've also got some new tees showing off some of Gielinor's most popular tourist destinations. Take a nostalgic trip to Lumbridge, scare yourself silly at Draynor Manor, soak in the sun on Karamja or wrap up warm (and fight for your life) on White Wolf Mountain.

And if you fancy warming up with a lovely cuppa tea (or a more grown-up beverage), we’ve also got ceramic tankards bearing the Jolly Boar Inn's logo!

Finishing up, we've got some Limited Edition Santa Pins and Party Hat keyrings, plus a gorgeous Limited Edition Black Knight pin, all from the fantastically talented Angels Scapes. As an extra special Black Friday offer, anyone spending over £40/$48/€46 on the store gets a Black Party Hat keyring for free!

If you're looking for an early present or perhaps a stocking filler or two, make sure to head on over to the store.

Head here to find out more about all of the above and a bunch of other lines we've restocked.

Fresh Start Worlds Week 9
The Competitive Period ends

The Competitive Period of Fresh Start Worlds is over! Congratulations to our World's First winners and the prestigious Top 100 Competitive Period Leaderboard superstars. Enjoy repping that mighty fine Competitive Halo, which will be with you shortly. We'll confirm the champions in a later post.

There's still plenty of good XP on offer for the rest of the event – whether you've yet to jump into FSW as a returning player or you're already in there, gains are still ahead of you!

Here's this week's bonuses in full:

  • Changed from last week: +140% XP (skills below level 70).

  • Continuation of Free Deaths.
  • 20% chance to double a monster or boss drop.
  • 40% chance to double gathered materials.

As a final re-confirmation, we are committed to ensuring the majority of items from Fresh Start Worlds are available again at some point in the future - including the FSW Alternative Skill Capes. While we don't have any further details or timelines to share right now, this won't be your only opportunity. Fresh Start Worlds continues to be the most direct and quickest way to get hold of the rewards if you're after them in the near term!

Patch Notes
Fixes and improvements in this week's game update

Garden of Kharid

  • Added Polletix to the NPC Contact spell so you can ask about the Garden of Kharid's daily seed from remote locations.
  • Weeded herb patches now have a configure option that players with Plant Power can use to set the default number of seeds they plant in a patch.
  • Adding multiple items to Compost Bins will now prompt the player for quantity, allowing players to place multiple items at once.
  • Farming stores now sell bucket packs.
  • Papa Mambo now stocks five Vine Herb Seeds in his store, up from two.
  • Instantly harvesting herbs via the Farming Skillcape effect will now display more clearly the amount of herbs gained.
  • A secret hidden within the Garden of Kharid has had its defense requirement removed... I wonder what that could be?
  • Reduced the amount of thieving XP you get from pickpocketing Crux Eqal Knights, bringing them in line with other Thieving training methods.
  • Updated the description of Patch Bombs to state that it will harvest a maximum of 75 crops.
    • Patch bombs have always had a maximum 'base' number of herbs they could give when harvesting but this was never displayed to players, the maximum is now displayed in the items examine. (Note this is purely the 'base' amount of herbs excluding buffs/modifiers and it is rare that players hit this number even with the new plant power tiers)
  • Diseased Spirit and Elder Trees no longer mention that the patch may die.
  • Fixed some typos when speaking to Polletix, and within the Garden of Kharid Reward Store.


  • Hotfixed: Players can now convert Protean Essence into other Proteans and vice-versa, and they can now be selected from Protean Packs.
  • The new Master Max Cape can now be placed in the Player-Owned House cape rack.
  • Re-added the missing blocking to a wall at the Champions' Guild.
  • Ulthven Necromancers and Cloaked Zealots found in The Shadow Reef no longer shoot spells from their feet.
  • Taraket's minion/skeleton spawns now play their death animation when Taraket is killed, instead of disappearing instantly.
  • Players no longer disconnect when trying to remove an enchantment at the Goebie Blacksmith on Mazcab.
  • An extra, empty line was deleted from Statius's Warhammer's Smash skill description.
  • Greater Barge will no longer sometimes increase melee attack range when using the legacy combat mode.
  • Removed some clunkiness from Greater Barge:
    • The Greater Barge buff is no longer lost if players click a target.
    • Fixed some issues that prevented Greater Barge from working correctly if queued.
  • Updated all references from 'Aviantese' to 'Aviansie' across RuneScape.
  • Fixed a typo when completing an Elite Dungeon in Story Mode.
  • Updated the reward text for the Observatory quest.
  • Fixed a typo in Veldaban's dialogue during the King of the Dwarves quest.
  • Talent Scouts now correctly recognise Inverted Agility capes.
  • Tool Leprechauns no longer note Calquat saplings.
