Phew, it's hot out there! Especially with all this elite armour on. Oh, you haven't heard? We're all able to afford Tier 92 armour now, because our Ninja Team has been working on an exciting new repair system - with help from honorary Ninjas Mod Orion and Mod Camel. More on that shortly, plus news on the July 4th event, a mobile update, and the Solomon's General Store Summer Sale!
Ninja Strike 7: Tier 92 Armour
The main focus of Ninja Strike 7 is Tier 92 armour, but as you'll soon hear, they've been busy all over the game! Let's see what they've been up to.
Tier 92 Elite Armour Repair
Tier 92 Armour is the best armour in RuneScape, but most players have had to settle for lesser alternatives because it's too expensive to fix.
We think you deserve the best, so Tier 92 Elite Armours can now be repaired more effectively. From now on you'll be able to create a 'repair patch' that will repair Tier 92 Sirenic and Tectonic armours at a reasonable cost.
Tradeable Super Prayer Potions
Repair patches aren't the only way the Ninja Team are saving you money this week – they've also made it possible to buy and sell Super Prayer potions on the Grand Exchange. No more wasting time and resources to mix them up yourself!
All 1-4 dose vials and 6-dose flasks can now be traded freely on the Grand Exchange. And because they're tradeable, you can also ask other players to make them for you – or offer your own potion-mixing services.
New Potion Decanting Interface
On the subject of potions, those of you who've visited War's Retreat will know that the big man is something of a mixologist, with his own Potion Decanting interface that's a bit more intuitive than the usual one.
The Ninja Team have persuaded him to share it with potion decanting NPCs all over the game, making the whole process quicker and easier.
Wicked Hood Update
Lastly, the Ninja Team have turned their attention to the Wicked Hood and its Runecrafting capabilities. Previously, it was quite complex to use, with a limit on teleports and confusing option names. In this update, that's all been made simpler.
You can now withdraw runes faster and make multiple sets of runes at once. There's also a handy new 'Configure' option, which will help you manage your runes better. Oh, and we've boosted the teleport cap, just to make things fair.
Don't worry too much about crowding the essence mines after this update – we're sure there's 'rune' for everyone.

July 4th Event
Happy Fourth of July to our friends across the pond! This year, we're bringing the celebration to Gielinor – so head to the area west of the Cooks' Guild in Varrock, because it's time to party! The balloons will be popping, the prizes will be dropping, and your old friend Sam will be there to serve up the Liber-Tea.
The Fourth of July event will run from July 3rd to July 5th.
The Ninjas aren't the only ones who've been busy this week! Take a look at the Patch Note highlights:
- The Grand Exchange buy limits for all Archaeology materials have increased from 1,000 to 5,000.
- All Ancient Familiar pouches will now convert into 20 scrolls each, up from 10. All Summoning XP gained per Ancient Familiar special attack cast has been halved, as you now receive twice the amount of scrolls.
- Augmented Masterwork armour and Augmented Trimmed Masterwork armour will now drop the corresponding broken piece of armour on death in the Wilderness.
You can find more Patch Notes for this week's update in the dedicated post here.

The RuneScape iOS Closed Beta will be unavailable for a short period while we perform maintenance after today's game update. It should only take between 10-30 minutes to run the tests. Once done, the new build will be pushed to the Beta channels. You'll receive a push notification when the game is ready to play.
