The shadows are gathering in Gielinor once more. Rumour has it that Zaros has been spending more and more of his time at the Varrock Dig Site - and we don't think he's been training Archaeology. Read on to find out more about that, along with balancing changes and RuneScape's first ever Pride event!

Yak Track: Yak to the Shadows

Last time we saw the Monolith, it was when poor Guildmaster Tony got eaten by it just a few days before Archaeology released. The Monolith has since remained a somewhat ominous mystery.

But in the last few weeks, the Monolith seems to have caught the attention of Zaros. He's been down at the Archaeology Guild almost every day, prodding and poking and disappearing into wisps of shadow. Finally, it seems as though he's opened a new path to somewhere... a 'track', you might say.

Gielinor's best and brightest have gathered around to view the spectacle, including a young Yak named Moorrissey, who wants to embrace the shadows for himself. If you help him out by completing the tasks on his list, he'll reward you with some of the ancient Zarosian treasures he's found.

The tasks in question will require you to hunt down lore, chat to yaks, and, of course, train all your favourite skills. Each training task comes with two different options to choose from, so you can play the way you want! And if you really don't like a task, you can always skip it using Bonds.

On the Free Track, you can get your hands on the Shadow Magus robes, the Zarosian Vigil, and more boosters and consumables than you can shake a staff at! Or if you prefer, you can spend 2 Bonds to join the Premium Track, where you can unlock the awe-inspiring Herald of Fate set, and loads of other exclusive prizes too. Premier Club members automatically get access to the Premium Track.

Yak to the Shadows will run from June 22nd to August 2nd - so lace up your hiking boots and get going!

Patch Notes

Before you get too chummy with Moorrissey, why not have a ganders at this week's Patch Notes?
  • Players can now trade Inquisitor Staff pieces to Soran for 10million coins each. Use the piece you wish to trade on Soran to begin the exchange.
  • The special move of the Kal'gerion demon summon now lasts 15 seconds, up from 9.6 seconds.
  • Confirmation warnings now appear when attempting to teleport into The Wilderness with Dareeyak, Annarkarl, Ghorrock, Ice Plateau and and Tele Group Ice Plateau Teleport spells, in-line with other Wilderness entry teleports.
To see this week's full list of Patch Notes, check the dedicated post here.

Coming Soon: Ancient Familiar Changes

In next week's update, we'll be rebalancing ancient familiars.

Firstly, all ancient familiars will convert into 20 scrolls per pouch, instead of 10. Because you'll be getting double the scrolls, we'll also be halving the amount of XP gained from each scroll use.

Secondly, the buy limits of all Archaeology materials will be increased from 1,000 to 5,000. This serves the dual purpose of ensuring that everyone can get hold of the materials they need and removing the indirect restriction the buy limit placed on the number of Binding Contracts that could be made.

Of course, the end result of this will be that more Binding Contracts will be made, and more pouches will be created, which will eventually lower the price of the scrolls.

Community Pride 2020 Event

June is LGBT+ Pride month, and to celebrate, RuneScape's LGBT+ community have teamed up with the J-Mods to bring you RuneScape's first ever Pride parade!

Everyone is welcome to walk in the parade - or if you prefer, you can just cheer from the sidelines. Bring your most fabulous fashionscape to Lumbridge Castle Courtyard, World 23 at 17:00 Game Time on Thursday June 25th to join in the fun.

J-Mods and P-Mods will be in attendance. If you're lucky enough, you might receive a special letter from a J-Mod, which will let you show your support in style! There'll also be balloon drops and fireworks along the route.

The parade route is as follows:
  • Start at Lumbridge Courtyard at 17:00 Game Time
  • Follow the path west to Draynor
  • Go through Port Sarim
  • Go through the southern gate of Falador
  • Take a break in Falador Square
  • Leave through the northern gate of Falador
  • Follow the path east to Barbarian Village
  • Enter through the western gate of Varrock
  • End in Varrock Square
We'd like to thank our community for coming up with this amazing idea. If you've thought of a great event you'd like the J-Mods to help run in the future, let us know in the official forums.
