St00pid scammer

I really hope that none of you clicked on the link to that naughty 'video' that the bot-spammer posted.

I can almost guarantee that it lead to a trojan horse website. (When I erased it thru mod access, it was a jpg that actually pointed to some very shady website with a .ly domain).

If you did, go run a good, up-to-date antivirus program or two immediately.


Seriously, I wasn't aware that RuneScape accounts were worth hacking, but then I've mostly been playing World of WarCraft the past year, and now that I've heard reliable scuttlebutt that Authenticators will be mandatory for WoW, I went and ordered a pair, one for each of my accounts earlier tonight.

Incidentally, I recall that Jagex once considered (1.5 years? ago) doing the same in a poll that they posted. Wonder if they'll revisit that idea?


PS visitted RuneScape today, even though its not 'server maintenance Tuesday' to check in with RS friends, got to chat with Jack aka archerpur2  and find out how everyone in Carbonnear, NL is doing. =)

Changes to Autocasting Spells

RuneScape Update - Missing My Mummy

There are many secrets hidden in the depths of the desert. Forgotten tombs of forgotten rulers from a forgotten time, when the world was a very different place...or at least they were forgotten. The spread of human civilisation, however, means that many of the hidden corners of the world are being uncovered, often by treasure-hunters with little regard for preserving the sanctity of these ancient places.

Summoning Upgrade and Hairstyles

One of the core aims of Upgrade Year is that we take a close look at existing content and make it better – this week this concerns Summoning and hairstyles: better usability, more pets and the return of the fringe.

Tale of the Muspah

Experienced adventurers will be familiar with Fremennik rites of passage, and the difficulties they present. It’s little wonder, then, that Fremennik children are always on the lookout for an easier path to adulthood, and Erjolf is no exception. Full of enthusiasm but short on skills, Erjolf will need your assistance if he is going to impress his kinsfolk.

Join him in his quest for a trophy, unravel the puzzling story behind a curious corpse, and discover the dark secrets of one of the most fearsome races to ever walk in Gielinor. You may find one or two useful allies along the way, who are willing to lend a helping hand.

It’s been great to work on a quest that involves one of RuneScape’s most mysterious races, and develop a plotline that’s been around since the early days of RuneScape. This is the first part of a new quest series, and paves the way for following quests.
