Avast, ye landlubbers! Murphy at Port Khazard has discovered a new spot teeming with fish for his trawler! He can't haul in this bountiful booty by his lonesome, though. With more high-quality fishy things to catch (those with the ability to catch manta rays and turtles, for example, are likely to catch quite a few more on the trawler than they could previously), it's time to strap on your Fishing gear, fix those leaks and start reaping the rewards.
Bring your friends along for a voyage on the high seas, but don't be afraid to get wet! The more friends that set sail, the greater the chance of more fish. Murphy has also fashioned himself a handy bank deposit box to allow you to send your fish straight to your bank (assuming you have the space, of course)!
RuneScape's Group of Advanced Gardeners (G.A.G.) recently commissioned the Makeover Mage to improve the appearance of their favourite animals. Sadly, the Mage was deeply involved in business with the Dorgeshuun, so he/she couldn't attend. Always resourceful, though, G.A.G. got some help from the Oneiromancer to tap into the Makeover Mage's dreams, so they could then manipulate him/her to cast the appropriate spells in his/her sleep. They're a cunning bunch, those farmers.
To cut a needlessly long story short, cows, chickens and rabbits now look fabulously new and shiny, and are sure to be a joy for players to slaughter!
In other news...
Fighters, fishers and deforesters alike may be pleased to hear that we've adjusted the game engine so that you don't stop fighting, fishing or felling trees when you rearrange items in your inventory. Similarly, we've made some changes to the prayer interface so that the buttons will light up as soon as you click them instead of waiting for the signal to reach the game servers, just like they used to do before last week's update.
The anchor from the Great Brain Robbery quest has had its stats boosted one more time. Its strength bonus has risen from 87 to 100 and its crush attack has increased from 80 to 92. On far-off Mos Le'Harmless, Smithing Smith has decided to change the fee he charges for repairing all broken anchors, so he'll now demand 230k coins to make your new anchors ship-shape and ready for head-pounding action.
Finally, there's a new button on the login screen that lets you move between game worlds more easily (unfortunately it is not available if you're using the unsigned version of the applet). Enjoy!
