Game Update: Zodi-yak Track

Happy Monday, everyone! This week we’ve got the perfect thing to keep you occupied while you’re stuck at home: a new Yak Track!

Worried about how things are going here at Jagex? Don’t panic – now that we’re all settled in to working from home, we don’t expect any further delays to content. For more information about our COVID-19 response, check out this post.

Zodi-Yak Track

Today’s horoscope suggests that there might be a special someone in your future, with long, luscious hair, a strong, calming presence and – yes, we’re reading this correctly – a giant telescope mounted on their back. It’s the Zodi-yak, and he’s here to take you on a trip through the cosmos!

Completing the Yak Track Tasks will get you a galaxy of stellar rewards themed around Sagittarius, Aries and Gemini. As always, you’ll be able to choose the task you prefer, but this time around we’ve spiced things up with joint tasks, which allow you to complete the same task with your choice of two different skills.

In the second week of the Yak Track, 25 brand-new Archaeology tasks will go live, so you needn’t worry about missing out on RuneScape’s newest skill!

Remember, anyone can access the rewards on the Free Track, which include the Dioscuri Battlemage Outfit, the Cosmic Teleport, and the Ram Horns. If you’re after the Cosmic Yak, the Sheratan Mercenary Armour, or Cosmic Billy, though, you’ll need to purchase a Premier Pass. Of course, if you’re a Premier Club member, you’ll get access to both reward tracks from the off.

The Zodi-Yak Track will be live from March 23rd to May 3rd. Now hurry up and log in – it’s almost time for lift-off!

Patch Notes

Last week’s chaos means that we’re lacking in Patch Notes this week, so we’ve decided to do things the old-fashioned way and include them here:

  • Total skill level checks for FTUE achievements are now a one-off login check. This should resolve an issue where some players could not log in.
  • Dummy objects (as in ‘objects you’re not supposed to see’) will no longer appear in Grand Exchange search filters.
  • Live Streams

    Archaeology is only 3 days away and we can already feel the excitement!! But before we get on and hop into a digging frenzy into the mysteries of Gielinor, let’s take a short moment to get an overview of what we’ve announced so far. And once that’ll be in the books, we’ll jump on the PCs for an exclusive first look at the tutorial of the skill! There’ll be some spoilers, obviously.
