These Patch Notes were announced on 1 April 2009.

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).


  • Tortoises will no longer block you when you’re walking causing you to get stuck.
  • Various standing torches will no longer let you stand in them.
  • Fixed some animations on a few desert NPC's that didn't seem to have any.
  • Some of the water near the Musa Point docks has been updated to better fit in with the rest of the area.
  • Players can no longer stand over a trapdoor in the Tower of Life.
  • The Bandos tassets no longer look odd when playing certain animations.


  • The yeti's knockback in the Myths of the White Lands quest wasn't always working correctly
  • Removed some unnecessary messages from the Path of Glouphrie quest.
  • All black knights will now correctly update the Falador Achievement Diary task.
  • The Falador Party Room Achievement Diary task has been modified.
  • The pendant that Zanik destroys will no longer reappear in certain circumstances.
  • The quest list sorting feature now correctly handles members who become free players.


  • Updated some of the code to give you hints about where the penguin spies are located. Occasionally even we lose those sneaky penguins!


  • Fixed a link from within the game to the website.
  • Updated code to better handle your familiars when you log-in to various places like cutscenes.
  • Removed some unnecessary code from the player-owned house script.

  • Changed code dealing with the quick Prayer selection in some areas of the game like Tears of Guthix.
  • Seagulls have now been added to the Hunter skill and can be found along some coastlines. You'll need to wave your butterfly net in a gullible fashion to catch these birds.
  • We’ve slightly increased the price on items that you have to gather from remote areas, so you should be able to make more profit from these.
  • When closing a deposit box, it should now re-open the last thing you had open, like your inventory.
  • Changed a phrase in the Quick Chat system.
  • Adjusted the pre-purchase advice code where some items requirements were greater than you actually needed.
  • Reworked the code dealing with crossbow pouches and the interface.
  • You can now store kebbit bolts in the crossbow pouch.
  • Woodcutting axes are now called hatchets to avoid confusion with other objects in the game.
