[00:09] BEHIND THE SCENES
- 190: The Month Ahead: April
[00:11] This month it’s all a bit dark and deadly with the release of River of Blood
[00:16] and a whole host of Vampyre content,
[00:19] but, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel
as we bring you NXT’s release date.
[00:24] I have some very exciting news to share with you this month,
[00:28] starting with a fantastic set of updates all about vampyres
[00:32] which culminates in the finale to the epic Myreque storyline – “River of Blood”.
[00:39] The Myreque plot line started back in 2005,
[00:43] the brutal tale of a rag tag bunch of refugees, fighting a desperate battle against the darkness of Morytania.
[00:51] This 7 part chain of harsh horrors has taken us straight into the heart of the Vampyric homeland,
[00:58] and now its grim conclusion awaits those brave enough to stick their neck out amongst those who wish to feast from it.
[01:06] If you’ve not quite got yourself ready for the Morytanian madness that awaits,
[01:11] we’ve got a month full of vampyre themed content to get the blood pumping,
[01:16] the first of which were calling “In memory of the Myreque”.
[01:20] In it, you’ll be able to build a monument in honour of those fallen friends you’ve lost in the quest series,
[01:26] creating statues for construction XP which act like a super charged prayer altar,
[01:32] giving bonus prayer points to those that use it.
[01:35] Players who complete these statues in April will receive even more rewards too,
[01:41] so stake your claim as soon as inhumanly possible!
[01:45] You’ll also be able search the lands for the “Lost Toys”:
[01:49] a collection of 13 strange playthings which, when complete,
[01:53] can unlock a new cosmetic reward and earn you some precious columbarium keys.
[01:58] Finally, you’ll be able to explore the new ghoulish crypt we’ll be adding,
[02:03] complete with a new, high level “ravenous ghoul”, which drops a very useful item, linked to the quest finale.
[02:09] We’ve also graphically reworked Paterdomus – the temple to the far east of Varrock,
[02:15] giving you some great vistas to enjoy the Morytanian swamps from.
[02:19] It’s also the focal point for the quest - and what a quest it is.
[02:24] In Rivers of Blood, the battle-lines are drawn at the River Salve,
[02:28] the armies of Misthalin await a battle the likes of which has not been seen since the times of the first god wars.
[02:35] Leading the vampyre army is Vanescula, the Mistress of Darkmeyer,
[02:40] wielder of a brutal weapon that could end all freedom in Varrock.
[02:45] It’s a desperate time, with Gielinor on the brink of disaster.
[02:49] Strengthen the magic of the Salve and kit out the Varrock army to face this threat.
[02:54] Only then will your forces be strong enough to defeat this legion of undead and bring an end to this terrifying tale.
[03:01] We’ve taken the spirit of all those quests before it to give this 5th Age saga the ending it deserves,
[03:08] taking you on a journey across Morytania to explore all its hidden secrets and loose ends, including the art of haemalchemy.
[03:16] Elsewhere in RuneScape we’ve got some time limited events with strange rifts opening to the shadow realm,
[03:22] earning chunky Runecrafting and summoning XP and unlocking 2 new sets of wings,
[03:28] we’ve got metallic dragon pendants to help you out when slaying these scaly fiends,
[03:33] a vampyre hunter kit that helps you out big time in Morytania,
[03:37] and even some new elegant navigator and kimono outfits on Solomon’s store.
[03:43] And we’ve saved the best news till last.
[03:46] Because this month we are proud to bring you – NXT, the latest and greatest RuneScape game client,
[03:54] bringing better game performance than ever before, showing the RuneScape world in all its glory.
[04:00] You’ll be able to see even greater distances, enjoy dynamic shadows and fantastic lighting effects,
[04:07] making the world an even better place to spend time in.
[04:11] On the 18th of April the new game client will be available for everyone to download, with full details on how to get it started.
[04:19] It really is a huge leap forward to your game world, making the game look and feel truly beautiful.
[04:26] To celebrate this fantastic advancement in RuneScape technology, why not take part in “Benedicts World Tour”
[04:33] a globe-trotting mini-adventure that’s custom built to take you to Gielenors most wondrous sights.
[04:39] There will be plenty of XP lamps to collect, so get stuck in!
[04:43] Thanks to everyone who has helped out by sending us bug reports and giving us feedback,
[04:48] we really couldn’t have done it without you.
[04:50] Have fun! Wooters Out!
[04:53] We’ll be back at the same time next week as we catch up with the guardians
[04:57] to discover the events leading up to “The River of Blood.”
