The Combat has been updated with tantalising teasers of buffs and weaknesses, and how theyâ€™ll behave in the new combat! Buffs and Weaknesses have existed in Runescape for a long time; the game developers had potions from Herblore, and plenty of stuns and binds from Magic abilities. However, with the addition of a wide variety of new abilities there are plenty more that youâ€™ll want to keep an eye on. The Combat will see a new interface showing buffs and weaknesses not only on yourself, but also for your current target. With so many effects, such as damage over time, temporary damage boosts, and many more, you’re going to need it!
Thereâ€™ll also be changes to a whole host of Runescape inhabitants to ensure that when a creature is weak to fire damage or stronger against ranged attacks, for example, it will have a more significant effect, particularly on your combat style and equipment setup. To find out more about these exciting changes, head over to the Combat. Along with the Combat got another fantastic instalment. Check out the Crucible (The return of Bounty Hunter), and take a closer look at some of the Combat changes, including buffs and weaknesses. All that remains is for to thank all dedicated beta testers for their participation, and to offer a massive to the rest of our community for their continued interest and support.
One last thing make sure you check out dedicated combat beta events forum for details on how you can meet the combat developers in game in order to challenge them to a friendly battle! Thereâ€™s also an exclusive costume set waiting to be earned for regular participants in weekend beta events. This, however, is only a plan, not a promise that a particular update will be released in a particular way or at a particular time. To get you the highest quality updates as quickly as possible, usually keep on tweaking and testing right up until the moment before release, so sometimes things change or take a bit longer than expected.
