Old School RuneScape Patch Notes – June 22, 2022

Pet Changes from Poll 76

It’s the update you’ve been waiting for – time to fill up your menagerie with a collection of pet changes!

First and foremost, any pets you receive in-game will now be automatically insured. If you’re unlucky enough to lose your pet, you will be able to retrieve it from Probita for the standard 1 million GP fee.

Both players who ‘would have been followed’ but did not receive their pet and players who have lost their pet on death can collect it from Probita, as long as it was marked in their Collection Log. Bank Placeholders also work as sufficient proof that the pet existed.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to retrieve pets which were received and then lost before the Collection Log was released, or pets whose Bank Placeholder has been deleted.

Any pets you achieve in-game are now automatically insured. If you are unlucky enough to lose your pet, your pet is redeemable from Probita for her usual fee of 1 million GP.

If you’ve previously paid an insurance fee, it’ll be added to Probita’s reclaim fee coffer and can then be used as a discount towards any further reclaims. For example, if you’ve insured two pets for 500,000 GP each, you will be given 1 free reclaim token. If you’ve insured 5 pets, you will be given 2 free reclaim tokens and a 500,000 GP discount towards your next reclaim token purchase. Nice!

Lastly, we’ve enabled loot drop broadcasts for _all _pets, including duplicate drops. Happy hunting!

New Mobile Client Features and Full Release

Great news for adventurers on the go – we’ve fully released our new client features on both Android and iOS devices! The new client will become available over the course of today, so keep an eye out for an update!

This means that the Java app is no longer in use. To play Old School RuneScape on mobile, your device must meet the following requirements:

  • Android: Android 8.0 (Oreo) or later, and at least 2GB RAM.
  • iOS: iOS Version 13.0 or later.

On the upside, mobile players now have access to all the exciting features we’ve been beta testing, including:

  • Buff Bars
  • Fishing Spot Indicators
  • HUD Improvements (NPC Information and Combat Styles)
  • Agility and Slayer Helpers
  • Chambers of Xeric Helper
  • Woodcutting and Ore Respawn Timers
  • Increased Draw Distance
  • Navigation Tile Indicators
  • Chat Improvements
  • Entity Highlights for NPCs
  • And more!

So what’s next? Take a look at this newspost, where we share all the details about future client features we’re looking to implement.


Other Changes

  • Increased the Friends Chat capacity from 100 to 500. Please note that this change does NOT allow for even larger raiding parties in Chambers of Xeric or battles in Soul Wars. We apologise if this is disappointing.
  • The Minimap’s HP orb now shows your health in Last Man Standing as a proportion of 99, as that’s the base HP level used in the minigame.
  • The Edgeville and Ardougne teleport levers now have a separate warning message if they are used on High Risk Worlds. Both this new message and the pre-existing warning can be toggled on and off via the Settings menu, lest players change their minds about dismissing them permanently. The warning on the exit of Ferox Enclave can also be re-enabled via the Settings menu.
  • The appearance of the Observatory Professor, if he appears in Traiborn’s quiz during Recipe for Disaster, has been corrected.
  • All Birds’ Nests will now take four times longer to disappear from the floor.
  • Ironmen fighting the Kalphite Queen will no longer find her lair devoid of Potato Cacti.
  • TzHaar Bank Chests can now be accessed from the side. Thrilling!
  • The entrance and exits of the Revenant Caves are now even further apart.
