LIVESTREAM ROUND-UP (07/07/2020)

A brand new quest called Desperate Measures is nearly here! This is a follow-up to 2019's Desperate Times and will be rolling out on Monday July 27th:

  • The quest will see players exploring the secrets of the dragonkin on Anachronia
  • Users must have completed 2019 quest Desperate Times in order to take part
  • They will also have to have completed the tutorial at the Anachronia base camp, and have level 50 Agility, Level 50 Archaeology and Level 75 Combat
  • Desperate Measures has been in development since March

Executive Producer Mod Warden outlined the recent challenges for the team in the current develop-from-home world. COVID has to an extent reduced production capacity.

In order to address this, the team has switched to a new development model:

  • Archaeology level content isn't possible right now under the current conditions.
  • The goal is to focus on meaningful content that's smaller in scope – some releases will be bigger than others.

Upcoming Content

During the livestream, the developers shed some light on some of the new additions heading to RuneScape in the coming months:

  • New Alchemical content is on the way – expect details at a later date.
  • The team is also working on an update to celebrate the 12th anniversary of a certain mystery piece of content in September. Teases!
  • You can also expect more work on seasonal events, such as Halloween and Christmas. The Beach returns on July 20th, featuring new cosmetics and fun things to do.
  • The designers have been hard at work investigating new methods for training RuneScape's various skills.
  • A brand new Orthen dig site for the Archaeology skill is currently in development.

Adepts may bring ominous seeds from their journeys. 300 seeds can be exchanged for one random dark version of a legendary relic. These relics are special: while they grant bonuses, they also weaken one of the adept's stats. Once you have all the relics, you can exchange the seeds for Victor’s Medals.
