Load up on better loot this week as we improve elemental and rare drop tables.
Winners in our drop table improvement poll earlier this year, elementals are long overdue some better loot rewards.
Now, the following enemies will drop more useful, valuable and relevant loot for today's RuneScape:
The rare drop table[help] has had some love too, bringing it up to date for today's game and economy. You'll start to see more lucrative and useful items dropping from monsters across the game, or greater quantities of items you'd have got before.
Braving the elements or seeing that glint from your ring of wealth should now be a more exciting and rewarding prospect than ever before. Enjoy the improved loot, and join the discussion on the forums.
