What an exciting week lies ahead! We’ve got the Winter Weekend, the Festive Aura, the Ribbon Rework and the release of our new, eagerly-awaited Evil Dave quest.
Speak of the devil…
Dave, we’ve talked about this. What do you want?
I’m trying to work, Dave! Can’t you see I’ve got a news post to…
You can’t just… Yes of course I know about Zamorak!
Give that back! Give it back right now! Give me th...
Hey! Adventurer! It’s me, Evil Dave!
Crazy news - turns out ZAMORAK is back in town (who knew, right!?), and I need YOUR help to conduct the RITUAL OF ULTIMATE DOOMLY EVIL to make him notice me.
You’ll find me at the Basement of DOOM - beneath my mother’s house in Edgeville. I’ll explain the whole thing there. You’ll need to have done my section of RECIPE FOR DISASTER and be a member with at least level 30 in herblore, magic, agility and cooking. Oh, and you’ll need to be EVIL!
Mod Scorpio’s giving me an EVIIIL look, so I’d better relinquish my dominion of the KEYBOARD OF CHAOS.
Get your runescape 2007 gold and see you in-game!

Patch NotesRibbon Rework
Mod Hunter’s made a number of handy tweaks to the ribbon. What a legend.
The window can now be resized and now adds space between icons
The following windows can now be added to the ribbon: magic abilities, combat spells, teleport spells, skilling spells, attack abilities, strength abilities, defence abilities, constitution abilities and emotes. This is now easier for us to do, should we need to add more.
The following features have been added to the ‘Ribbon Setup’ interface:
You can now reset your ribbon to the default icons or clear it in one go
Icons added to the bar are now removed from the selection area
Spacing has been improved for the ‘Ribbon Setup’ interface and the Options Menu. A section for window management has also been added to the latter.
Of the two windows labelled ‘Magic Abilities’, the main has been renamed ‘Magic Book’ and been given an icon to match.
Melee and attack abilities now have separate icons (melee uses crossed swords).
The ‘worn equipment’ icon has been changed to distinguish it from the ‘hero’ icon.
The drawer icon has been replaced with a settings cog to make room.
...Thanks Mod Hunter!
To ensure that these changes have had the desired effect, they will now be tested for new players, half of whom will see the existing, unchanged setup while the other half are exposed to the above.
You can read the full list of this week’s updates - including optimisations resulting from some fancy new dev tools - on the patch notes forum thread.
Evil is the BEST!

See these eight bright-eyed newcomers? They're our newest addition to Gielinor: combat pets that you can unlock by training their respective skills, all taken from (or inspired by) your designs and chosen with cheap rs gold by the community.
These pets are available to all players with the ability to train their respective skills. And, while there's no lower limit, your likelihood of rolling a combat pet will increase as your skill level increases. We get huge runescape gold for sale for players' need.
Alongside this update are a bunch of new achievements (which don't count towards your RuneScore) and three new titles: 'Jack of Blades', 'Jack of all Blades' and the illustrious 'Master of All' title for anyone focused enough to earn all 27 skill-related pets. The names of the first players to win the new titles will be broadcast across all our servers.
For the purposes of bureaucracy, Crabbe the Slayer gargoyle will be joining the eight new combat pets. Please join us in giving Crabbe a warm Gielinorian welcome. *gives warm Gielinorian welcome*
