Diango is a merchant who was released as a part of an April Fools' joke. Players had been requesting horses in the game for some time, and were excited to find out that Diango was to be added to sell "horses" in his store (Diango's Toy Store) in Draynor Village. However, Diango actually sells toy horseys, which are not rideable and are mostly useless. He has, however, since gained more functions, the most prominent one being able to return lost holiday rewards and selling or giving special commemorative items.

UpdatesEdit

  • 4 April 2005: Jagex had announced the release of "dragon plates". What was actually released were spinning plates with a picture of a dragon on them. A conversation with Diango revealed that they were supposed to arrive on the first of April, but thieves stole them because they mistook them for Dragon platebodies.
  • 1 April 2008: Similar to the spinning plate joke, Diango started to sell Dragon Kites; not the dragon kiteshields players had long been hoping for, but a red kite with a picture of a dragon that players may fly, called Toy kites. After buying one for 100gp, players can wield the kite and have it float alongside them or choose the Fly option and fly the kite for a moment in a strong breeze.
  • A hidden update on 16 December 2008 allowed players to right-click on him to claim holiday items.
  • A hidden update on 28 April 2010 added an option to redeem codes. The redeem-code was used to obtain the Flagstaff of Festivities for those who purchased RuneFest tickets.
  • 1 February 2011: Diango began selling Celebration cakes and Celebration candles to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of RuneScape.
  • 19 April 2011: Diango began selling seasonal items commemorating the Royal Wedding. These included fireworks, firecrackers, a bubble maker, confetti and a souvenir mug available to all players, in addition to a bouquet available to members.
  • 25 May 2011: Diango received a graphical update, and once again on 17 October 2011. After the latest update, he no longer resembles a cowboy.
  • 1 April 2012: Diango began selling "p hats" which were actually peahats, released as an April Fool's joke. (p hat supposedly meaning partyhat)
  • 10 May 2012: Diango would award player a Cape of validation and a shiny lamp if they registered an email account.
  • 1 June 2012: Players who had a membership throughout "Mad May" could claim a Mad necklace from Diango.
  • In a hidden update, Diango gained the ability to restore destroyed Squeal of Fortune items including the Monkey hats and pieces of the Dragon ceremonial outfit.
  • Around 20 January 2013 (?): The right-click "Holiday items-Diango" got changed to "Retrieve-Diango". The Holiday item retrieval screen also changed, with the left-half of the interface being holiday items, and the right-half of the interface being promotional items.
