[00:22] first there's a very special guest
[00:24] coming to varrock by unicorn torn
[00:26] carriage and you can be a part of the
[00:28] celebrations that is if you could help

[00:59] spear will have some souvenirs to flog
[01:01] to get you in the celebratory spirit
[01:03] they might be a need to some help too so
[01:06] make sure you stop by and say hello
[01:08] with so many visitors flocking to the
[01:10] area for the big occasion the town is
[01:12] already running out of supplies and
[01:13] that's where you can lend a hand in
[01:15] return to some very special rewards

[01:21] challenging clues until the party

[01:33] over the whole week and you can check
[01:35] out Barack's party atmosphere from May
[01:37] the 29th
[01:44] combat is a large part of any MMO but
[01:46] runescape is about to undergo a large
[01:48] combat rework that would change the way
[01:51] the game is played forever madre 'the
[01:53] mod mark and mod kriselle tell us more
[01:55] about the evolution of combat so
[01:58] currently the way that people play
[01:59] runescape is that they spend a lot of
[02:01] time navigating between different
[02:03] interfaces that's something we really
[02:06] like to change so that the action is all
[02:08] about the gameplay back 10 years ago
[02:10] they just didn't have the same tools in
[02:12] our programming language that we do now
[02:14] and now we've got these new tools we can
[02:16] totally go in and make the game we want
[02:18] to make we've got a redo every single
[02:19] bit of code you can imagine every item
[02:21] in the game every NPC in the game every
[02:23] boss a request we are bringing in and
[02:25] the concept of an action bar you most in
[02:26] this and other games on and offline we
[02:28] can put anything we want on this bar
[02:30] it's not just limited to the combat
[02:31] update although there will be some
[02:32] specific combat abilities on there which
[02:34] will touch on in the future when we give
[02:35] more information about the combat stuff
[02:38] out you can't put anything that exists
[02:40] on that the moments of quick prayers
[02:41] prayers themselves emotes items you can
[02:43] scale with it you can get logs and then
[02:44] if I make anything you can imagine can
[02:46] go on there at the moment it really does
[02:47] stream like the entire process and means
[02:48] you spend less time fighting the
[02:50] interface and it's all there right in
[02:52] front of you we're not talking about a
[02:53] tiny little update we're talking about
[02:55] one of the biggest updates we've ever
[02:56] worked on in the history of the game

[03:03] the future behind the scenes videos and
