These Patch Notes were announced on 9 September 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).


  • Gabooty and a few other NPCs have had their animations corrected.
  • A cutscene in A Forgettable Tale... has been reworked from an outdated style.
  • Resolved a problem with some stairs that didn't appear to have a texture on them.
  • Put the scarecrow graphic back on the leprechaun tool exchange interface.
  • Fixed an issue with the penguin suit during a cutscene.
  • Fixed a render issue when teleporting to the Runecrafting Guild.


  • Fixed an engine issue that meant the circus distraction and diversion icon didn't move around correctly on the world map.
  • Ensured that people on your Friends and Ignore Lists are accurately displayed as being online or not.
  • You can now click on the QuickChat icon in the chat box once again.
  • Users experiencing high CPU usage since the RuneTek 5 update will hopefully see this has dropped to previous levels.
  • We've also fixed a large majority of game crashes that users have been experiencing.


  • Improved various dragons’ fire-breath code behaviour to match the KBD's existing behaviour. The actual animation has not changed.
  • Magic runes have had their Grand Exchange upper price caps increased.
  • Fixed the attack range of the NPCs at Ourania Altar. This was a knock-on effect from an engine change last week.
  • Moved a tree that was causing render issues in the Tree Gnome Stronghold.
  • Adjusted the code for resting due to changes with the previous update.
  • Ensured that the skull sceptre parts’ drop rate has increased in the Stronghold of Security.
  • You should be able to select the defensive style with a scythe in all circumstances.
  • Adjusted pyre log code so you don't use extra doses of sacred oil (‘Sacred oil (2)’ would empty rather than change to ‘Sacred oil (1)’).
