Ninja Team

The Ninja Team are a group of Jagex employees responsible for adding minor content or quality of life improvements.

Ninja updates generally consist of tweaks and changes to existing content to improve the player's quality of life when playing the game. The ninja team's ethos is to deliver the highest impact changes at the lowest cost to development time.

Ninjas take community feedback through their dojo and add that feedback to the game as a so called "strike". A strike can be themed, like the ninja strike from 14 April 2020 regarding Shattered Worlds. Or it can be a scattered strike where multiple pieces of content receive an update like the ninja strike from 4 May 2020 which saw updates for the Anachronia Dinosaur Farm, grace of the elves, and stone spirits.
