Leaks was significantly altered after an update.
This article is retained to provide information on past elements of RuneScape.

Leaks are information about future updates planned for RuneScape that are accidentally posted in-game, on the RuneScape website or any other RuneScape affiliated site, that disclose information about an update that has not yet been officially released. Information from Behind the Scenes videos/posts and Facebook, forum, and twitter posts are not classified as leaks. Due to changes in the way that Jagex release information about future content, leaks have mostly been replaced by officially released information which is documented on the upcoming updates article.

Unreleased leaks

These are update leaks which aren't featured in-game yet.

13 January 2012 RuneScape's Facebook & Twitter accounts. A Fire cape with Bloom lighting effects was shown in the update teasers for Hati & Sköll, but wasn't released along with the wolves.

It was suspected that the bloom effects for the Fire cape would be released with the update which would graphically overhaul the TzHaar, but this didn't happen.
More pictures of a fire cape with bloom effects were released with the Dominion Tower update pictures, therefore it was again suspected that it would be released with Dominion Tower update, which also didn't happen.

It is unknown what purpose it served, if any, although some speculate it was used to test the POH features before release.
