Combat Changes – preventing boss walking & defence debuff changes to bosses
This week some changes have been made by the combat council to issues that were effecting the playability and enjoyment of many boss fights in RuneScape.
Firstly, we have removed some of the initial anti-walk solutions that were implemented for certain bosses and instead, we have replaced this with a better baseline solution. Walking detracted from certain bosses' intended difficulty and now we have a more complete system.
Secondly we have toned down the effectiveness of some of the defence-debuffing items.
For full details of these changes and for a place to leave any feedback you have, see the developer blog on the forums.
Solomon's Store - Gossamer Outfit
Fresh from the Fae series comes the Gossamer Outfit, spun from the finest lightweight threads that Gielinor has to offer.
Pick it up from Solomon's Store and inject your wardrobe with a dose of fairy fierceness.
For the patch notes for this week's update, see the thread on the forums.
