Journey to Iaia Yak Track - This Week In RuneScape

Journey to Iaia Yak Track - This Week In RuneScape

We’re taking the Journey to Iaia with a look at the new Yak Track, plus we've got exciting boardgame updates!

Yak Track: Journey to Iaia
Rewards include the first ever combat ability cosmetic override!

Our latest Yak Track brings incredible cosmetics themed around Iaia, the Iljuankan planet that features in Elder God Wars: Extinction!

This Yak Track introduces a number of brand new rewards, including our first ever combat ability cosmetic override and a Transmog Ring! You can also score stunning cosmetics themed around Iaia, including new pets, weapon overrides and more.

Skill and Kill tasks for all 50 levels make a return, allowing you to earn your way through the Yak Track with your regular activities. Focus on the main tasks to power through, or make steady progress as you work towards your other goals.

Those with Premier Membership or the Premier Pass can also earn up to 20% Bonus XP for the duration of the track!

Yak Track: Journey to Iaia runs until July 24th, so you get two whole months to complete your tasks! Upgrade from the Free Track for just 2 Bonds or get the Premier Track included with Premier Membership.

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


  • Fixed an issue where clicking on Jaws of the Abyss in the Slayer Log pointed to the Abyssal Scourge.
  • Fixed a typo in the tooltip for Jaws of the Abyss.
  • The grace period on the 'To Dream, Perchance to Keep' post-quest achievement for Extinction has been amended so that it finishes correctly on July 4th.
  • Players who Surge to Moia towards the end of Extinction are no longer blocked from continuing the quest.
  • Users on all platforms can now toggle visibility of unavailable Spellbook spells consistently.
  • The player can no longer activate an unowned hairstyle by previewing it and activating a different, owned hairstyle through the Options menu.
  • New accounts stuck on the roof of Burthorpe Castle should now continue to the Burthorpe transition cutscene. No ladder required!

Requirements Changes

In the coming months, RuneScape will no longer support Windows 32-bit builds and graphics cards that do not support OpenGL 3.0 or higher. This change allows us to focus more of our technical development and testing on platforms used by the majority of our current players.
