When the druids and Taverley as a whole were first graphically updated, the druid robes themselves did not receive a graphical update, nor were they updated when the Troll Warzone update was released.
With the release of the Troll Warzone update on 31 January2012, druid's robes were unintentionally discontinued, as the druids and druidesses in Taverley were made unattackable. Jagex eventually fixed this oversight by making chaos druids drop them instead.
Druid's robes were once popular among players as they were originally the only white robes available. However, with the release of the Tourist Trap quest, their popularity dropped as the desert robes released with the quest were identical in appearance and are easier to obtain. The desert robes have since been graphically updated and are no longer identical.
