Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The General store icon (Generalstoreicon.png) was changed to (General store map icon old 2.png) on 8 May 2007, perhaps to clarify that they only sell empty pots, not pots of flour.
  • The All Fired Up beacon (Beacon map icon old.png), Commander Yodri himself (Commander Yodri map icon old.png), the goblin raids (Goblin raid.gif) and the demon mob boss (Demon flash mobs map icon old.png) were the only icons that are not encircled before 10 March 2014.
