  • patch 14 December 2020 (Update):
    • We're always paying close attention to your feedback to determine how we can make our content better, and Yak Track is no exception! Here's a few of the changes and fixes we've made this time:
      • Task Scaling Adjustments
        • Agility tasks will now allow players to complete any Agility course they meet the level requirement to use, instead of being scaled to the player's level.
        • Similarly, Dungeoneering tasks now allow you to complete any floor you have the level requirement for.
        • The quantity of items required for Herblore and Crafting tasks no longer scale based on your level - all players must now carry out the same number of actions.
        • Quantities required for Herblore tasks have been significantly reduced, bringing down the cost of completing them.
        • Summoning tasks are now less restrictive and allow you to create a wider range of pouches.
      • Gain XP Tasks
        • Construction tasks have been replaced with a 'Gain Construction XP' task, allowing players to progress as they choose.
        • Archaeology restoration tasks have been replaced with a generic 'Gain Archaeology XP' task.
        • Smithing tasks have been replaced by a 'Gain Smithing XP' task, allowing players to smith efficiently while making progress.
      • New Tasks
        • Present Hunt (This Track Only): A new kind of task where you're asked to track down presents all over Gielinor using a set of Magical jingle bells.
        • Earn Marks of War: A new type of combat task that'll see you killing bosses and collecting Marks of War.
      • Miscellaneous Task Improvements
  • patch 19 October 2020 (Update):
    • Living rock creatures now count towards the Kerapac Track task 'Kill Monsters'.
    • Harvesting the divine simulacrum II now counts towards the Kerapac Track's Divination objective.
  • hotfix 28 September 2020 (Update):
    • Players should now be able to pin the final Yak Track task to the Activity Tracker.
  • patch 28 September 2020 (Update):
    • An issue causing some players' clients to crash upon opening the Kerapac Track interface should now be fixed.
  • patch 29 June 2020 (Update):
    • Fixed various Yak Track tasks.
    • Yak Track Task 38 option A can now be correctly incremented when Thieving.
  • hotfix 29 June 2020 (Update):
    • The rather excessive amount of 50% progress reduction messages has been removed from Yak Track and should now only show when you start one of the first 10 tasks.
  • hotfix 30 March 2020 (Update):
    • Players can now hand in eggs to Benedict regardless of how much of Benedict's World Tour has been completed.
    • Players can no longer open the Yak Track interface while the First Time User Experience is still active via the Task List or Sir Yaktrick Moore, as doing so caused an issue where blank tasks were displayed on the interface.
  • patch 27 January 2020 (Update):
    • Cleaners have swept up the remnants of the Yak Track area in Burthorpe.
  • patch 9 December 2019 (Update):

    • The Dark Fire and Flame swords have been graphically updated.
    • Yak Track progression fix - Zogre Bones now count toward progression.
    • Yak Track tasks will now no longer scale down when a member swaps into a free-to-play world.
  • patch 2 December 2019 (Update):
    • Scattering ashes will now correctly add to the progress of the Prayer Tasks in Yak Track.
    • Updated the Yak Track information buttons to make it easier to differentiate between locked and available tasks.
    • The Dungeoneering Yak Track tasks will now correctly add progress when doing Occult Floors at high Dungeoneering levels.
    • A stray select option was removed from the task skip confirmation screen in Yak Track.
    • A full-stop was added to the fourth slide of the Yak Track tutorial to help break up the sentence.
    • The Witch's Doll and Abyssal Prowler pets have had the word "pet" added on the Yak Track to help clarify what they are.
    • Players who have finished a task, but it has not registered as complete will now be able to continue progressing with Yak Track after relogging.
    • Changed Draynor Village to Draynor Market in the Yak Track.
    • Count Yakula's position has now been moved to make him more centralized.
