- Fixed an issue which marked 'What's Mine is Also Doric's' as completed without finishing Boric's tasks.
- The message "your ammunition will deal less damage than expected" will now only appear after 5 minutes or re-logging.
- Praesul codex drop rate now scales to the amount of players in the fight so that smaller teams are better rewarded, up to the maximum of 7 players.
- Ninja Fix - Upon entering the Combat Academy your pet/follower will now be hidden for other players, once you exit the Combat Academy your pet/follower will then reappear for other players.
- Completing a Sliske's Endgame replay no longer awards Treasure Hunter keys.
- The rewards for the Familiarisation Distraction & Diversion have been reverted to give the summoning ingredients they did before the Mining and Smithing rework.
- New divine locations have been added for Mining up to Light & Dark Animica, as a result the level requirements have been readjusted for the current divine rocks in-game.
- The ore Divine Locations have been graphically updated.
- Desperate Times: Needle Skips, You Are It, 50 Mining, 50 Smithing, 50 Divination. Set after Sliske’s Endgame, recommended, not required.
- Partially voice acted, voice acting in key cut scenes.
- Substantial, but not as substantial as Ritual of the Mahjarrat. More to come in the future, Jagex excited where this goes.
- The next step is to announce the “big thing” in the summer. Ties in to this quest, repeating characters and themes, ties in together.
- There are some puzzle elements in the quest, reward is a container for clue scroll items that will save bank space. As well as a Master clue scroll.
- Quest release May 13. May 10th was a typo.
- The summer update is 7/8ths done.
- Is Sliske going to make an appearance? He “died” — Mod Raven https://youtu.be/YiVLMnTUqhQ?t=1007
- Elite Dungeon Q&A is coming, fixes keep getting added on to it, this puts it back to QA and testing.
- Elite Dungeon QoL from Month Ahead
- Hunter Modernization Project
- Introduce a new Hunter training method with PvM style drops
- Tweaking existing methods of training to make it more AFK friendly
- Over 30 QoL fixes for the entire skill
- A new tier of salamander at the mid 80s.
- Elite Hunter outfit made available by in-game activities
- XP rate rebalance
- New top end XP rates with Hunter boosts should be about 550k xp/hr.
- Why now? It’s a good time to bring the XP rates down when there is a new Hunter update coming out.
- Top end: Crystal skillchompas or ornate Tortles. 2 ways to train, not much choice at the high end. When finished, 8 or 9 methods to choose from.
- 2019 has taught Jagex to be a bit braver. Mining and Smithing taught Jagex that fundamental elements can be changed, lead on to things like the comp cape rework and Firemaking add-ons.
- More authority to the councils to do these kind of updates, stop being “curators of the world” and stop worrying that people are going to “outroar” and reeee whenever we do a change. Jagex is at a place where Jagex is really happy with a lot of the things this year. There are so many of these updates going on, they’d like to do Agility and Construction but the schedule is full. They would be the next two.
- Elite Woodcutting outfit is imminent.
- Crystalize was the point Hunter went wrong.
- This is *not* the big summer update.
- Mod Shauny says that Jagex realizes in the past that Jagex has been “a bit purist, deal with it” and is aiming to communicate more effectively to make things less negative in the future. See: Divine vacuum change.
- What does the community think about finding out about significant changes 2 months in advance?

Listener Questions and Discussions
Question from Zant
As a recently returning player, catching up with the newest content has been quite overwhelming, especially when it comes to smaller tweaks and fixes. Which smaller updates (even patch notes) over the past year or so do you think have made the most positive impact on the game?
Question from Tyco
As I'm currently between a course book of 800 pages and a hard place, I will ask you a unique question before heading back to the drawing board.
People say that it's a blessing to be stupid. Stupid people don't have to worry about world problems, political stuff or that the sun will burn Earth to a crisp in 500 million years. So if we were to imagine ourselves in an alternate dimension where we are more "stupid", how do you see yourselves? Would you maybe be living a happier life, or maybe you feel that being intellectual is a crusial thing for your existence? And to spin it around, how would you picture yourself today if you had Einstein's brain aquired at the age of 5? Maybe you would build a mechanical tree that converts oxygen more efficient that a real one, or maybe just depressed when realizing that mankind was doomed from day 1.
Don't give me the short answer and remember to be yourselves, until you get paid to be smarter by your boss.
