Hidden updates without date

This is a list of hidden changes for which the specific update date is unknown. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 12:57, April 30, 2015 (UTC)

Didn't we use to have a separate section for undated hidden updates on the main article? 18px-Avatar.png Fswe1 26px-Brassica_Prime_symbol.svg.png 13:35, April 30, 2015 (UTC)


Somewhere around beginning of February most of the chatheads received improved lightning effects, to be more similar to the current ones and I don't recall seeing this in the patch notes (although I may be wrong). I think it's worth mentioning, although I can't give specific date or update.--Mariobaryla (talk) 21:02, February 16, 2014 (UTC)

That is NOT an improvement, it's a bug that is currently affecting a number of things, like Puzzle boxes, the Fairy ring interface, chatheads, clue scrolls and some other interfaces, and just seems to be affecting DirectX mainly.

Slayer xp

since when did we start getting slayer xp for killing edimumu, etc while dunging? Extreme133 (talk) 15:32, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Bonds pouch

Was there any actual news post that the bonds pouch has been released? There was mention of them 'working on it', but I can't seem to recall seeing a note that it was included in the last update. (It is ingame now, however.) IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:15, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

Yep, in the In Other News section: "Bonds are now kept in a dedicated inventory, accessible via the Bonds icon at the bottom of the backpack interface." Heaven Sent (talk) 22:54, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

Cryws elves dispute

I contend that with yesterday's update, Crwys elves got harder to pickpocket. A few folks on reddit agree. The Mol Man, on the other hand, thinks that there is somehow no evidence of a change. Well I'm sorry I didn't video-record myself pickpocketing Crwys elves before the update, but I am absolutely positive that they got buffed. Dispute resolution please. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:28, September 30, 2014 (UTC)

I think the lack of coverage on the recent updates forum is another point against you. Actually, I couldn't find anything there. With a place like reddit, people are going to gather and report on bad luck like that. By the way, 50 pickpockets is actually pretty normal. You noticed a change because you looked for a change. MolMan 19:33, September 30, 2014 (UTC)
50 pickpockets is way below normal. I had a doubled elves challenge yesterday and I finished most of the 200 required pickpockets on Cadarn elves after I got swiftly banned from Crwys. I repeat: It is not bad luck. Bad luck doesn't provide such consistent results. Since yesterday's update I am always kicked out of Crwys much sooner than I was before. It is a clear sign of a change to the game and it deserves to be noted here. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:36, September 30, 2014 (UTC)
Then how come I'm at the Crwys workers again without failure? And why are there 2 other people here lasting endlessly? MolMan 19:39, September 30, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I just did half a pickpocket run, first on Crwys workers then on Trahaearn workers. I got 28 successful pickpockets on Crwys (26/0/2) and 174 successful pickpockets on Trahaearn (26/135/13). This reflects a normal pickpocket run for me. 97 Thieving, Ardy cloak 4, exo set. Crwys workers were easier before Monday, I came away with several dozen successes at least. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:53, September 30, 2014 (UTC)
I've been pickpocketing the elves all weekend (\o/ for grinding clues). I cannot say I have noticed any significant change in success or failure rate after the update compared to before. Sometimes I get caught almost immediately, even in succession; sometimes I can pickpocket the same worker for 3-4 minutes, making me think "what on earth is going on with this success rate"... It's purely RNG based perception.
The hidden updates article remains for facts, and one person's perception, and 3 users agreeing on reddit doesn't make it a fact. Either get a significant sample size (which is impossible given that if it has changed, you can't properly sample the before state anymore), or get a JMod quote. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:05, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
For me they aren't any different from others. This is just a coincidence, like others point out. However I did notice that the pickpocket series before 1st strike is usually the longest, for every clan. This seems to be the way this particular mechanic is designed. 5-x Talk 17:23, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
I just want to comment that Crwys is miss spelled in the title of this section, but as I know how people dislike seeing someone fix minor spelling errors on a Talk page, I will leave it and just comment here. Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) 06:44, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Examine text shows GE prices?

When did the examine text of every item start showing the GE price for it?

I only noticed it the other day, but I haven't played RS in a while so I don't know how long it's been there.

It doesn't seem like something that would be a patch update, because it's not fixing a bug or glitch, but there's no mention of it on here and it's too minor to be a proper official update. 04ismailjj6 (talk) 12:24, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

It was a ninja fix iirc from a few months back. MolMan 12:27, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
Ok, are people updating the examine texts of the items on all the wiki pages? 04ismailjj6 (talk) 21:42, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
No, there's no need to. It's not part of the actual examine text, just an extra filler bit. We already have the exchange price listed. MolMan 13:59, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

Hidden update on dyed equipment

I heard about an hidden update that changed the value of dyed equipment, in the items kept on death menu, on the update of last monday. Does anyone own a piece of barrows, shadow or 3rd age dyed equipment and can they confirm this? It could then be added here. Thanks Clanky1 (talk) 15:28, January 21, 2015 (UTC)


Took me a bit to find it:,15,545,65115644,goto,22 17 December 2013: "The golden pitchfork is now available for all players.". IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:20, February 11, 2015 (UTC)

Progress bar font

Is it just me, or did the font used for progress bars change? (E.g. the font used for the % chance for Morale/Combat/Seafaring in the ship interface, or the % on the progress bar of the Make-X progress popup.) IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:12, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

Not sure (I'm not in-game right now), but here's a picture from January 28, 2015 for reference. Heaven Sent (talk) 15:38, March 30, 2015 (UTC)
Here's the current version: qjBp2Gf.png . I'll add it in. Thanks, IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 16:17, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

mutated jadinko male

no idea when and don't remember seeing it on patch notes, when did they changed the audio for mutated jadinko males? Extreme133 (talk) 23:55, April 19, 2015 (UTC)

Convert values

  • 27 April 2015 or earlier: Huge XP lamps won from Treasure Hunter have their convert reduced from 500,000 to 50,000 coins. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 12:57, April 30, 2015 (UTC)
    • From the 27/04 patch notes: Skill lamp cash-out values have been made consistent with prismatic lamp values on Treasure Hunter. Snow globe ThePsionic Enchanted snowball 14:01, April 30, 2015 (UTC)
Ooh, the changes didn't remind me of the patch notes. Thanks. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 14:42, April 30, 2015 (UTC)

RuneScape logo alignment

To clarify this:

The screenshots were made with RuneScape loaded in a browser (yes, I cropped out anything aside from the game). IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:09, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

It seems the bottom of the "S" in "RuneScape" is 237px above the top of the "Logging In - Please Wait" box in both cases; I'll reword the article. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 15:14, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
I'm flipping back and forth between tabs and those two screenshots look identical --Iiii I I I 15:11, May 21, 2015 (UTC)
Didn't realize you posted the "afters" as a second image --Iiii I I I 15:12, May 21, 2015 (UTC)

Circus Ticket update?

I just noticed it's now possible to tear the circus ticket and exit the circus while on the tightrope, previously a message appeared telling you to climb down. Should I add it to the page assuming it was with the most recent update or is it a bug?04ismailjj6 (talk) 11:21, September 30, 2015 (UTC)


19/10/15 patch notes, page 7 Mod Kalaya confirms an update to the Ectofuntus not mentioned in the notes itself.

"you'll automatically get the bonemeal and slime in pots and buckets. We've removed the need to have them." 02:51, October 21, 2015 (UTC)

Summer of Adventure sun icon interface

"The Summer of Adventure interface has been changed to showcase the Arc event. Previously it depicted Telos." It showed the Arc thing for like a day prior to the beginning of the month, then when the monthly reset happened, it went back to Telos. Should it be moved to the specific date, or should we just let it slide? --Sucy_orb_2.pngScuzzy BetaLuna_Nova_sigil.png 13:05, July 17, 2016 (UTC)
