Start Collecting Seeds In Preperation For July's Farming Update
A new farmers market has appeared in Draynor Village next to Diango the toy seller. Members can buy the seeds needed for the upcoming farming skill, which will be released in July. Players with sufficient thieving levels can also pickpocket the master farmers and steal from the stalls themselves. Other characters in the game may also drop various farming tools.
Players chopping down trees will also notice the odd nest tumbling down from the branches. These nests appear randomly for woodcutters (in a similar way to gems appearing when you are mining) and may contain useful items, including farming seeds.
We have separated Farming from Player-Owned Houses in order to bring it to you sooner. Player Owned Houses are still being worked on along with the Carpentry skill for release towards the end of this year - Honestly! :-)
Helpful new NPC's
A new guide character has also arrived in Lumbridge. Appropriately named the Lumbridge Guide, he is there to help less experienced players who would like some additional information about the game. He can give tips and reminders on where to go to make money, fight monsters or simply find the bank. He'll also gives some handy hints on things such as avoiding scams and keeping your password safe.
He stands just outside the Lumbridge castle, holding a large staff with a question mark on the end and carrying a rucksack full of scrolls.
If you go to Lumbridge and look for a question mark icon on your minimap you should find him. There are also two other new characters wandering around Lumbridge called Donie and Gee who can give some advice to new players on which quests to try. In other news, a Wise Old Man has moved into a disused house in Draynor Village. He's been exploring the world and studying its history for many years, and is happy to share his knowledge with any passing adventurer. He'll even help you identify a few useless items from old quests that you might still have in your bank. Members may offer to do a few simple tasks for him, for a suitable reward of course!
Increased Bank Space
In anticipation of the upcoming Farming skill and the release of these new seeds, we have provided an extra two lines of bank space for our members to make use of.
The Pollnivneach general store now functions as a normal general store.
The Make-over Mage, Falador Hairdresser and Thessalia's clothes shop in Varrock are all still free for makeovers, but this is for a limited time only.
There have also been some slight changes to the Khazzard battlefield. We highly recommend you take a look.
