Pigs[edit source]

The Pigs of Faldor Farm had a secret makeover that covered their legs and belly with brown mud. Stormpride 10:44, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Messaging in Private Chat[edit source]

Ok, currently, the text below (which was #2) is NOT A HIDDEN UPDATE, as it was added over a MONTH AGO in the Runecraft Minigame update.

Here is what it read in the Article.

Players are able to right click a message sent to them in Private Chat, and respond to that person from there.

Axe Handle[edit source]

I knew you could weild the item (axe handle) when you lose your axe head, but I only just noticed you can re-equip it if you unequip it (on April 1st). Unless it has always been that way and I never noticed it? --PikachuMayhem 15:54, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Pickaxe handle has been added for April 5th, but I noticed Axe Handle on April 1st, like I said above. Maybe the 2 updates came out at the same time, and I was originally right about the Axe Handle?--PikachuMayhem 19:17, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Goblin Book[edit source]

Dropped by Goblins, probably to coincide with the release of the most recent Dorgeshuun quest. Not announced. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 19:21, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Hidden updates about the music system[edit source]

Does anyone know when did jagex added a indicator showing how many pieces of music has the player unlocked ? XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 05:16, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

It was sometime after the 11th. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!Loon is best buttlord 05:25, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it's a hidden update, it's documented under "in other news..." in "18 March 2008 - Easter 2008 - For All Players!" on the rs main page.--Dr5ag2on1 06:00, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Ghosts[edit source]

"Ghosts are invisible and would not be noticed." Just removed that from the opening paragraph - it has been there for some time, but seems like a bizarre thing to say in this article. Possibly surreptitious vandalism, but if someone has a reason for it to be there then by all means put it back. :-) Leevclarke talk Max_logo_mini.png bulldog_puppy.png 05:23, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Forums Search[edit source]

Uhh, idk if this qualifies as a hidden update but the forums search now has and Advanced Search options and the search results look a bit different. Theunknown one 17:15, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

search in the quick chat[edit source]

think it came out on 28 of oct 2008 but theres a search there nowDayofswords 01:09, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

They mentioned it in the update about the Halloween event. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!Loon is best buttlord 01:12, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Construction guide mouseovers[edit source]

I don't know how recently this was added, but you can now click on the furniture icons in the in-game Construction guide (the one accessible from the Skills tab) and the necessary components for each item is listed in the chatbox. Anybody have any idea when this was updated? Am I blind for not having noticed it sooner? --nekobawt 20:48, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

Walking animation[edit source]

Is it just me, or is the walking animation now smoother? We used to rock sharply from side to side as we walked, but as of today I don't notice that anymore.  Tien  00:29, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Special herb patch[edit source]

8 December 2008: special Herb spot added to top of white knight castle

Stealing creation fogs[edit source]

Don't know what day it started, but now when you enter fog teammates will stay blue on the minimap. it used to be that everyone showed up as a white dot when you went into a fog patch.

This spot was used in the while guthix sleeps quest to grow enriched snapdragon. It has been added 2 weeks ago and was certainly not meant to be hidden.

New Patch Notes in Recent Updates RS Forum[edit source]

Since Jagex has decided to release "Patch Notes" with each update now (hopefully this stays)... Should a new article be made and this one merged with it? [[File:OldAgility.gif]] ♣Φπì♣ tribs █Φ█ ▲ π ▲ █Φ█ Disk of returning.png15:37, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

jan 15 update not hidden[edit source]

ive seen this in the rs announcements -Kazypoo1 00:06, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

It was on the thread on the forums that they told you to go to on the news announcement. [[File:]] User talk Evil Yanks Contribs [[File:]] 05:25, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Zaff's Battlestaves[edit source]

PLEASE to anyone who has not done this yet, but do NOT say that the Zaff noting his battle staffs is a hidden update. It is not. It has always been this way. Thank you.

He has not always sold them noted. You may find the change in Update:Patch Notes (17 March 2009). Karlis (talk) (contribs) 00:57, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
To quote exactly: Zaff will now be more flexible when you're trying to request battlestaves. It was this day he sold them noted. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 00:59, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Well, then in that case, thank you, but regardless it was still in the patch notes which means that it was not a "Hidden" Update.

Still hidden?[edit source]

If an update listed here is found in a forum post by a mod, does it still count as hidden?--King x treme 23:35, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Kids Up North?[edit source]

Has anyone tried visiting the sea snake teenagers from Royal Trouble - they are the only kids up north that i know! --Goodison Goomba 17:17, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Interface Graphic[edit source]

I noticed the icons representing all the interfaces were graphically updated. Was this a hidden update?

New look of dragon dagger[edit source]

Can someone confirm that and/or post image in dragon dagger article? Ow, why it has been deleted??? --ExcaliburWolverrEnhanced Excalibur 21:05, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

I don't see anything different in it Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 21:20, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

Number of People Playing[edit source]

I just noticed that there is a comma in the number of people playing. I believe this was added today (11/27/09) as I didn't see this yesterday. Can anyone confirm this? Mage24365 02:08, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

antiglitch[edit source]

a statue has been added at the chaos altar in bounty worlds(the altar at the far west part of the ditch, not the one in lvl 15~ wildy) withouth it you could glitch your way to Edgy just like a teleport. i havn't read anything on runescape site of this so just thought i'd mention it. 20:24, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Not a Hidden Update[edit source]

"Five new soundtracks added, Honky Tonky Harmony (unlocked at Rising Sun Inn, Falador), Honky Tonky Medieval (unlocked at Dancing Donkey Inn, Varrock), Honky Tonky Newbie Melody (unlocked at the Blue Moon Inn, Varrock), Honky Tonky Parade (unlocked at the Jolly Boar Inn, Varrock), and Honky Tonky Sea Shanty (unlocked at the Rusty Anchor Inn, Port Sarim)"

I think this should be deleted. This was mentioned in some patch notes.

Runescape Courier[edit source]

"The first RuneScape Newsletter, named RuneScape Courier, has been sent to players who have confirmed their e-mail address."

Can anyone confirm this, as I haven't received anything? Thanks. =D Bandos godsword.pngC00l dud4Torag's platebody.png 13:46, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't recieved anything either. Mining cape.png The Last Pun Talk Aberrant Spectre Champion.png 14:32, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
I got it... but somehow I don't think it is right for it to be in the hidden updates... I think it should be about the game and website only. Maybe a new page about it? I dunno... --Scykei 14:51, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

More Background Sounds[edit source]

I don't know but did they just add more sound effects when standing next to torches and fountains? Can someone confirm this?Krayfish 19:17, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

Dagganoth Animation Improvement?[edit source]

I just noticed the death animation for a Dagganoth has been updated. Can anyone confirm when it happened? Krayfish 19:54, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

cape holders[edit source]

on december 15 it says all cape holder when mouse over blah blah blah so what are cape holders?

Was this like that before?[edit source]

The internet browser displays this:
The question is, was this like that before? Because I never noticed it saying that...

I got it. The forums show the number 1 thing, while the rest of the site shows the online game thing. They just changed the forum for some reason. VRTMZEBucket detail.pngrwojy 16:47, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Kuradal gives jungle strykewyrms now[edit source]

Yeah, a friend of mine got a Junge Wyrms task from her earlier today, he said it was a hidden update this morning. I'm just wondering if anyone can confirm this so it can get added? 22:21, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Not hidden (WebCited version). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:25, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, alright. But it's not something they released on front page, do we only include patch notes in Hidden updates section? 22:36, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Hidden updates are things not mentioned in any way shape or form by Jagex - patch notes are not hidden, as they freely give out the info. Hidden updates are things like the Ghostly robes miniquest - they said nothing, it could've been in the game for months before anyone found out... etc. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:43, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

I think info like this should go under the trivia section of the jungle strykewyrms if Nexus announced it. Krayfish 13:48, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Tears of Guthix a D&D?[edit source]

I just noticed that the minigame sign for the Tears of Guthix game is now the one of a D &D. I'm pretty sure this was changed with Fish Flingers, but can anyone confirm when it happened? Krayfish 19:18, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

It happened back when they reclassified mini games as activities, I think it was announced though. Cheese.png KaBob799 19:27, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

March 29th hidden updates[edit source]

The following small fixes and adjustments have now been made to the game. If you spot any further bugs in-game, please use the Bug Report feature ('Submit a Bug Report' under the 'Help' drop-down menu of the website).


  • Fixed a problem in Fish Flingers, as it would often say there was 0 minutes remaining until the next game.
  • Your fishing tackle box and competition history cards both tell you how long it is until the next competition.
  • The Stealing Creation repair code for the barriers has been updated, so it can be repaired using the correct number of resources.
  • The Barbarian Assault scoreboards have been updated to match the new Constitution and life point changes.
  • You can now gamble the highest amount in Barbarian Assault without having to kill the penance queen on Wave 10.
  • Soul Wars has been moved on the world map to fix a technical issue. It's now near Mobilising Armies.


  • The target dummies in Lumbridge are now only useful to those with a low combat level.
  • Adjusted the code for the divine spirit shield to correctly reduce damage in all circumstances.
  • Added sound effects when changing your rune guardian's colour.
  • Added more of the safe bank area to Port Phasmatys, as it wasn't covering the entire area.


Basically, you just copied Update:Patch Notes (29 March 2010). --LiquidTalk 17:25, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

O rly?[edit source]

"Deflect Curses protection in a PvP escenario has been reduced from 60% to 40%."

Something seems off about that, why would jagex make it a hidden update and not a patch note or a front page update? Deflect Curses seem kind of important, they wouldn't update it privately and outrage everyone who found out that they're not as good at protecting as they first thought. 19:46, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

I thought they always did 40% and the 60% was just a typo, I seem to remember a mod confirming that? Cheese.png KaBob799 22:03, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

It has always been 40%. Alot of people seem to think it is or was 60%, but has always been so (got curses within a week after they came out, so I can know it). I'll remove it. Purepout 19:43, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Too many Hidden Updates?[edit source]

Hello to all! I read this article very often, and then I got an idea... Why to keep all hidden updates here, and not just the most recent ones, like of this year? I think it's useless to keep the older ones, as I don't think nobody reads them, just this year's ones. What do you think about this? :) This would also make the page to load in less time, and take less memory, even if it isn't that much.

yours, Duke Risto 14:59, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

I have to agree with you a little bit, but I don't think we should remove the old ones entirely. We should create separate pages that contain the Hidden Updates. There would be one for each year. (ex: Hidden Updates (2009), Hidden Updates (2007)) And for ones that don't have enough updates to make them an article, we just combine them. (Ex: Hidden Updates (2004 and 2005)). Do you think this is a better idea? Krayfish 20:28, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

I think subpages would be better, like Hidden updates/2006 and Hidden updates/2007. --Iiii I I I 20:34, May 10, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. This page will just keep getting bigger and bigger otherwise.Guthix1110 11:29, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
I just split this page up by years. The list of updates for 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 were kind of short so I combined them into one page. Krayfish 15:31, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

Forums Changes[edit source]

I'm not sure if they stated it somewhere, but they combined the "Member's Only" and "Members 1400+" together. If they didn't stat this, was it a June or May update? Rank: 315 Elysian Aura One day it will be mine! 16:52, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

They announced that they were going to do this so it's not technically hidden. Krayfish 19:21, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Faithful shield[edit source]

"Unknown date- Faithful shield is given a Defense requirement of 40, when before it was 1." It was level 40 defense from the release. Quest capeGundoggyTalk Contribs #Blue hallowe'en mask 19:18, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I noticed this too, it's new. :p Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 03:35, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it's been there for some time as I saw that message a few months ago when my computer lagged a little bit. I would put it under an unknown date section. Krayfish 18:58, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Mage animations + Dreadlocks eyes (July 15, 2010)[edit source]

I've removed the mage animation text and the eyes-with-dreadlocks text + pic from the Hidden Updates for the following reasons:

- Mage animations were mentioned in the "In Other News" section.

- Dreadlocks with eyes is a leak, and is under the Leaks section in Runescape Wiki

Circus[edit source]

I think the Earth ???? spell animation was just updated as well as the lines around Magic Performance areas removed.BigBobBobson 03:55, July 21, 2010 (UTC)

Spell animations (Ahrims, Circus) are NOT hidden updates! (July 20, 2010)[edit source]

I've removed mention of Ahrim's spell animation being updated because this was mentioned in the patch notes (19/07/10) "All of the spells that were recently changed have now been adjusted throughout the rest of the game"

Please do not mention changes like Ahrim's, Circus animations, etc in the Hidden Updates article, as the patch note applies to all of these!

Why was the Daemonheim scenery + castle update removed? (July 21, 2010)[edit source]

As far as i'm aware the castle expansion and scenery additions to Daemonheim were not announced at all.

Possible hidden update?[edit source]

I've heard discussed in the forums (and am checking myself) that Dragon bones have been reduced to 1k per four hours instead of 10k. Can anyone else verify this? The thread I was referring to is "17-18-383-61341345" —Triforce 14

Penguin Hide n' Seek Option[edit source]

Well Chuck/Larry now has a "Hide n' Seek" option which allows you to access Hide n' Seek quickly without going through the chat. I know this was added in August but I don't know when.

Does anybody know when the option was added in August? if so edit the August Hidden update section.Viko 1678 OL 04:54, August 12, 2010 (UTC)Vik

Falador Hiker "Man"[edit source]

I was wandering around Falador when I clicked on the "Man" with the Backpack and stick. However, I noticed he was once attack-able with a "Attack" option but now only has a "Talk-To" option. So I talked to the NPC and it's dialogue was completely changed. He previously talked as any other Man or Woman NPC (I.E. Good day we're having...). But now...
The Dialogue:
Man: Oh, hello. I don't suppose you've seen a campsite around here, have you?
Svirya (Me): No, sorry.
Man: Curse this lousy sense of direction. All of my stuff is at that campsite!
Svirya (Me): You've still got what your carrying though.
Man: Well, yes. Not everything else of mine, though.
...And the dialogue ends at that point.

I think this may be a hint of something up-coming. If you don't believe me, wander around the area between the Makeover Mage, Necromancer and Crafting Guild to find him.

MORE!!!![edit source]

I've found the following:

The clan chat colour change affects your username and game messages

There is a quick-option for sound on the in-game offline page (when your logged out)

Tiny Elf Crystal's invent image changed to the same as when dropped on floor

Potions (1,2,3) had a graphics update, same with jewellery and various armour. These looked badly clipped, so i'm assuming they'll be fixed soon.

Armillary sphere (In POH Study) now has a gold trim around it (still with the silver trim).

Dylan Bowyer 13:16, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

okay, I think I found a glitch that might have to do with the Z-Buffering update today (Sep. 15), can someone confirm? on the 2nd floor of the Lighthouse (near Barbarian Outpost), there appears to be a blinking, dark gray square above the top of the stairs and a randomly flashing light on the northern wall of the lighthouse (all on the second floor). I don't know if it's just my computer or what, so I would appreciate if someone could go in and check it out, thanks :).

Cape of legends.png Pst333 Quest.png

23:00, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

The flashing light is the lighthouse's light spinning around, it's a graphical effect Jagex set in there. Jampolo 23:20, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

all right, got that, but what about the blinking gray square above the staircase?

November[edit source]

I've gone and looked through the patch notes and all the offical posts on the main page for the 24/11/10 update and none mention graphics changes to the lobby it announces the way you can change the graphics now but not that theres been a graphics update to the lobby and login screen so is therefore considerd a "hidden" update and so there was no need to remove it Defence cape (t).png Rabbit FearArmadyl godsword.png 18:23, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

March 17th 2011 Update[edit source]

There was an update on March 17th 2011, nothing about it on homepage or fourms. Apparently it was to fix an exploit/bug with the game's security. If anyone knows what this about then please update the page with it!

Double eyepatchity[edit source]

Since when did double eyepatches become tradable? You could give them to eve level 3 player wich can wear them without need of quest. Wonder if it been like this or an hidden update within A Clockwork Syringe..? Shall also mention straight off, untradable through Grand Exchange.

April 4 2011 Update?[edit source]

I think the strykewyrms, both desert and jungle at least, received graphical updates. They now have dark lines running up and down their wyrmy "bodies" Don't want to add it unless someone else verifies - I sometimes think I see changes, when all has really remained the same.... Thanks. Sanctumanon 06:40, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

They have since reverted back. Sanctumanon 09:51, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Korasi's Sword[edit source]

When you wield Korasi's Sword, it is now held straight, much like the rapier. Before it would be held straight up. I wasn't sure if this was a glitch or not (I remember players would sometimes stand straight in busy places) so I didn't add it myself. EnEx 01:55, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Noted in the patch notes, says all scimitar style items (which inclused korasi's sword) were given z-buffering holding, like that of Dragon scimitars. Achievements Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 02:00, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Granite rock removed?[edit source]

I saw discussion in the official forums about removal of a granite rock in the granite mine. Discussion dates from 20 April 2011. I can't check it out myself, but if true this is a Hidden Update that belongs on this page. Someone who can confirm it, please....? JalYt-Mej-Wynde 18:03, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Well I checked the granite/sandstone mine and they all appear to still be there though I never mapped it out or anything like that so I could be mistaken. The rocks are a bit different from the rest of the mining rocks and they shrink down as they are mined like limestone. Maybe someone mistook an empty spawn as a missing rock.  Summoning-icon.png Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur.png 23:54, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
Did a little more research,. The map on this page shows 26 granite spawns in the exact same location as they are in game at the moment. The the article says 28 granite spawns but the last update to the map predates the mining rocks update so I think the 28 is wrong.  Summoning-icon.png Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur.png 00:09, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Re: the claim that ring of slaying now acts as a ring of wealth.[edit source]

This doesn't seem to be true. When I saw it I ran a quick test. I killed a few gargoyles (for some reason the row shines on every kill of them regardless of the drop). Of 20 kills with the ring of slaying on not one "your ring shone brightly" message appeared (the game tab was of course not filtered). I also did 5 control kills with the ring of wealth on and every kill shone. Am I missing anything?  Summoning-icon.png Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur.png 00:46, May 6, 2011 (UTC)

umm as im sure a few of you are aware there is now no tutorial it just gives you a creation screen and puts you in lumbridge immediately is this a hidden update or was it mentioned somewhere (if it was could some1 post a link so i could see)? Yellow partyhat.png Jchaplin2 (Talk) Zaros symbol.png 15:03, May 27, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure. Check the forums, maybe Patch notes? It is a pretty big change, it should have been mentioned somewhere. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 15:20, May 27, 2011 (UTC)

Scenery & animating[edit source]

Recently it be seen that Edgeville and Port Sarim has gotten new scenery, as Sarim's background is like run rise/downing, and in Edgeville it looks more bluish, somewhatever. Also noticed randomly that several standards that stand in gnomish lands(Like Gnome Stronghold), they hast animation, sweeping on the wind, fancy indeed..

Scenery & animating[edit source]

Seems that whilst Draynor Village had update, also Port Sarim and Edgeville too, slightly, meaning the scenery/fog/mist around. Sarim's background looks like of sun rise/dawn, and Edgeville seems more fresh, bluish? Also noticed animation added to gnomish standards, such as around Gnomeball Arena.

-Dates be not exact to know of, since this has been around ever since Draynoric updates, so beliven them to be quite the same day, and ohhh, see that Shaikahan haven't added here, as he seemed to have new look today.

The Shaikahan update was mentioned in the patch notes. I went ahead and added the Edgeville update.  Tien  17:14, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

Tiara 'Make All' option[edit source]

Title says it all, they've at some point, added 'Make All' option when using talisman to altar, choosing to make triara, it opens option for amount to make. Fancy!? I'd state yes, certainly! ^^

Global Fight Pits Update[edit source]

On the 21st of June, Jagex added a small tunnel right before the Tzhaar Fight Pits activity which allows players to choose whether to play the Fight Pits with players on their own world or with players from all worlds. I haven't seen this update mentioned in any hidden updates or patches as of yet.

It was mentioned an hour before it was added in a stickied thread in recent updates. QFC: 15-16-127-62906581  Summoning-icon.png Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur.png 15:01, June 25, 2011 (UTC)

Statue near Cooking Guild.[edit source]

There seems to be a new statue added that is next to the Cooking Guild. The appearance seems to be of a female, though it is not possible to make out because it seems to be missing some features, such as a head and arms. It also seems to be a warrior, noted by the sword on the corner. It cannot be examined.

There is a similar statue just to the south of the mind altar, and some unexplained ruins just north of Falador gates. No idea what they mean, apparently there are more.

Crystal bow.pngPaddiThePancake Slayer-icon.png 19:16, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

I did notice that statue when Temple trekking /Burgh De Rott Rumble got updated. with a friend we speculated some ideas and the most possible one may be that it's the statue of Camorra updated and decayed by time. We will figure out what the statue means in the future.
There is also the statue of Saradomin missing from the northern Falador Lutanist and replaced by an updated statue of a player, yet decayed in the lesser manner then the before mentioned female statue. also some large chalices, also decayed by time, were added on the stairway east-northeast of the Lutanist.
Basically, RuneScape is changing drastically so we may not be able to recognize it as time passes on. Cyrus1 19:37, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

^[edit source]

There's another statue with very same shaped bottom, too, it seems male. No head, yet again, ehhee? Where was it again.. Next to Mind Altar, replaced with previously-placed large gravestone.

Its just part of the graphical updates jagex did to the free to play area when they added the new trees. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 07:44, August 28, 2011 (UTC)

Agility icon change[edit source]

When exactly was changed the icon displayed when passing over agility obstacles? It used to be a green bended arrow, now it looks like agility skill symbol. I cant find this mentioned here and I am not sure about the exact date of change... Eakhor 20:20, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Assuming the contributor was right, this question is answered now. Eakhor 19:24, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Baba Yaga's house mapping[edit source]

From Baba Yaga's house you used to see water's edge at south(Light House area when entering during quest, not completed), and to the north-west you'd see south-eastern corner of Legend's Quest dragon-head-shaped dungeon or whatever, ya'll kno, eh? So now coming to this 'used' word at the begin.. You don't see either anymore, at all, not even with orb of oculus - but you actually find out that there's now Pollnivneach Slayer Dungeon to the south and south-eastern corner of Enchanted Valley to the north-west(rest of directions blank black empty). So then, for some reason, Baba Yaga's house mapping has changed, seemingly.. Went for lil' venture, and say, there's nothing replaced to spot where Baba Yaga's house used to be. Maybe it was actually moved because of this nearby area around it, being perhaps too nearby, huh? Could be reasonable, say..

I figured this out today(15.10.11), and bit unsure of this reveal date.. I think i could've noticed the difference yesterday, as i have wide screen view and minimap would also show piece of water to the south at the time as used to.. Maybe it's actually today or not, but hidden it surely seems!

Wicked hood teleportation[edit source]

Today, on 26th october, wicked hood teleporting has updated, so that now upon arriving to Death altar with it, it actually takes you inside the light door, rather than outside as it used to, and those shadows would also attack you at. Yet no update for Astral teleport, requiring no Seal of Passage, nuh..

Yeah... the death altar tele update was mentioned in the patch notes. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 12:29, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Forums count as non-hidden?[edit source]

Does an update that's mentioned on the forums but not in the official newsposts or patchnotes count as hidden. Asking this with regard to the updated bosses released with the dominion tower. Something supposedly is mentioned on the forums but not in the official newsposts. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 16:36, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

If it's in the patch notes or something along those lines, it's not hidden. Suppa chuppa Talk 16:38, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
What about this new example: [1]. It's not the patch notes and not a regular update announcement, meaning it has no other place on the wiki. We either need a new category to store these or allow them to be added here. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 14:02, November 17, 2011 (UTC)

6 December 2011 - Urns 'Teleport All'[edit source]

They added the 'Teleport All' interface today... I don't know why someone removed it from the list. Just yesterday I was teleporting Urns and they didn't have it.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kyle8497 (talk) on 21:39, December 6, 2011 (UTC).

I haven't used urns for a long time myself, but it's not in 6 December's main update or in 6 December's patch notes, so it should be here if it was in fact released this week. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 22:42, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Money pouch deposit[edit source]

You can deposit the cash in your money pouch directly into your bank. But I dont know since when this was possible, but I think it was added together with the Barrows update. It's a pity that there is still no option to withdraw all your cash in the invertory. Comadant 19:16, January 5, 2012 (UTC)

This was announced in the patch notes though What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 19:25, January 5, 2012 (UTC)

Barrows Gloves[edit source]

I am wearing a pair of Barrows Gloves in game, they have been reskinned to match the new armour.

I put this is hidden updates as this is not in the patch note, my edit was instantly reverted, am I getting some sort of a render glitch?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 20:54, January 10, 2012 (UTC).

Stomp & deflect curses[edit source]

As I rarely dungeon I have no way of knowing when it was done but it is no longer possible to reflect damage back on stomp. I know it used to be possible as I remember getting to the final stage and having him die early from reflected damage without having to activate the last set of crystals. I do not remember reading about it in any of the patch notes but that doesn't necessarily mean it wasn't as my memory is not perfect. Can anyone narrow down when it was added or if it was announced or should I just add it to the most recent update?  Summoning-icon.png Sci (talk) Enhanced Excalibur.png 13:04, April 20, 2012 (UTC)

Construction Delay[edit source]

There seems to be a delay when you go to destroy an item in your house now, (Mohog tables for me). Last weekend when I did a little bit of construction I hadn't noticed it. This delay is enough to stop me from being able to Destroy Table, Send butler away, make table within 2 game ticks.

Several friends have said they've noticed something similar as well, anyone else? Forum moderator crown.pngFerrelShadowSlayer.png 01:44, April 23, 2012 (UTC)

Superheat Item spell[edit source]

Altered sound effect too? Would assume same date as for weapon attack sounds, being 24th April.

Various NPC characters have been given voice.[edit source]

Which ones exactly?

22th May[edit source]

'The Explorer's ring 4 has had it's Superheat and Alchemy spells piled into one right-click open which opens a tab in the chatbox.'


Yarly. Since millennia ago, perhaps even upon the very release date of the whole ring. If i get this phare right, right?... That the ring is in inventory for this 'piled option', which is so called 'Alchemy-or-superheat', eh? If so, i'd with ease state this isn't any recent update at all.

I was doubting it too. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 10:12, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

Barrows - Defiled & Doomed crypt[edit source]

This specific crypt accessed after RoTM seems to have been moved from map area of other barrows crypts, and whereabouts now it seems to lay is in east from Isle of Sann, Kethsi. For reason unknown...

Private chat and Quick Chat[edit source]

I noticed recently that Private Chat's quick chat options have been limited to 1 or 2 categories, where it used to include all the normal options. Not sure if I recall seeing this on the patch notes ever... Global Smack

17th July hidden update problem[edit source]

  • New animations are added for using member weapons in free-to-play worlds, instead of punching/kicking and the weapon dissapearing, most weapons now have a unique animation. For example, when attacking with a godsword in a F2P world, the player will hit the enemy with the hilt of the sword."

I've personally witnessed this before?

Removed yew tree?[edit source]

It has been reported across forums that atleast 1 yew tree has been taken out of previously 3, at south side of Gnome Agility Course?

Spotted/spottier cape updates...[edit source]

It seems to me both spotted and spottier capes have gotten updates - atleast for male chars, as for seeing female with same as before. Also to note, i'd assume spotted cape is bugged, as for it being exactly same look as spottier, and i assume the model being spottier since teh quite bright theme.

Unknown Fully Revealed[edit source]

The latest update with the Al Kharid rework also revealed all unknown areas left on the main continent. They said that they revealed the full world map, but I don't recall a mention of all the unknown being removed, just the world map itself. Does this count as a hidden update?

Additionally, it was NOT announced that you can now access Tirranwyn without Regicide. The world map reveal also showed all the unknown south of piscatoris, allowing you to walk all the way around Prifdinnas, and apparently, access Tiranwyn with only 55 agility. I did not see this in the Patch Notes or anywhere else. 00:37, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

Tunnel of Chaos Update[edit source]

Okay, so, I've seen a lot of back and forth issues on this whole thing. I noticed earlier that "Tunnel of Chaos" was added to the page, and sense that is honestly part of the Chaos Tunnels, I removed it, and someone else added it back again. I said "ok, fine, I won't mess with it." But this exact thing has happened twice more now, and possibly happened before I did it.

I felt that this warranted a discussion here. Undoubtedly this is going to keep on going back and forth until a resolution is made, with some people saying the Tunnel of Chaos counts as a "Hidden Update" because of the technicality that its not exactly the same as the Chaos Tunnels. The Chaos Tunnels were an announced update; that's a fact.

The Tunnel of Chaos is directly linked to the Chaos Tunnels, has an almost identical name, and is basically the starting point of the Chaos Tunnels. Isn't it logical to assume that it should be updated in the same update as the Chaos Tunnels themselves? They're not "completely separate" areas at all, they are directly linked, even though they technically are not "the same"... RelmKisaragi (talk) 23:24, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

I completely agree that the Tunnel of Chaos graphical update is linked to the Chaos Tunnels rework as they are basically linked together. (TonyBest100 (talk) 13:51, October 12, 2012 (UTC))

Said uncharged pendants no longer turn to depleted version, which is indeed true, but pretty clearly mentioned in news too.

April 2013[edit source]

I'm not sure when it happened - but come to think of it, it should've been before this week's update - the sound played when a GE-update appears in the chatbox has been changed. It matches the sound of working with coins, depending on the amount of coins in the GE offer. Does anyone know when this was added (and could add it to the main page)? 16:53, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

I've also just noticed that the sound for breaking magic tablets (at least those in the Circus D&D) has changed. Not sure since when. 05:41, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

25 September 2013[edit source]

I haven't added this to the article itself as I'm not 100% sure; it might just be that I never had this happen before. Anyhow, after today's update, I've been getting several Connection losses. RuneScape freezes, and I get a long wait until it notices that it isn't getting replies anymore, and it tries to connect again. From memory, this is usually followed by an empty chat box (bar the "Welcome"-message), reset camera, and having to re-enter my PIN. During all my connection losses today, I did get my camera reset and had to enter my bank PIN again, but my chat box was not cleared. Although, perhaps this is related to the chat changes in the Lobby, that were noted in the patch notes? IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:48, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Extras Menu[edit source]

The changes to the extras menu are in no way truely hidden. They are a logical extension of the Bond update, considering they even mentioned Bonds were accessible from this menu. Hidden updates generally are truly hidden updates: those not logically connected to a game update, and not mentioned anywhere. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:31, September 28, 2013 (UTC)

Avatar resources[edit source]

Regarding this, I am 100% sure that our avatar has always collected in batches of exactly 30 charcoal at a time. If you are seeing 26.1, maybe you were using the resource at the same time the avatar was collecting more of it; or it depends on which plot the avatar is collecting. Making a talk page note before turning into a revert war, but no, this is not new. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:55, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

It's new. It was previously documented as 26 by another editor, with whom I agree 100% (until this week, that is): // --Saftzie (talk) 06:16, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
