From Saturday to Monday inclusive, a wide selection of bosses and other enemies throughout RuneScape will reward you with double drops – your swag bag will be fuller than ever before, as youâ€™ll find a duplicate of everything looted from the beasts below: Nex King Black Dragon Kalphite Queen Dagannoth Kings The Giant Mole Glacors Chaos Tunnels: all monsters, except Bork Revenant Dungeon: all monsters Stronghold of Security: all monsters Thereâ€™s also a chance to receive double drops from the Barrows brothers, and from the Barrows chest. Facing down a brutal boss is all the better with a friend or two at your side, so be sure to get involved with the RuneScape Community Teamâ€™s Stomp the Bosses event this weekend.
Today sees the release of a significant performance improvement update to RuneScape which will improve frame rate and the general game play experience, which has been an issue for some players recently. As many of you will be aware, some previous anti-bot initiatives caused an adverse affect on the frame rate and performance of the game. The Game Engine Team has been working very hard on solutions to this and the update should bring significant increases in overall playability for the vast majority of those affected, noticeably more so on lower-spec computers.
As part of our ongoing effort to combat bots, this update also contains additional adjustments to the engine which will significantly disrupt bots. These changes are only part of their ongoing efforts to continually improve the performance of the game, as well as to combat bots, and we have further updates in these areas planned for the next few months. At times we may go a little quiet in these areas – this is because itâ€™s often hard to share details of what weâ€™re working on without giving bot makers information that they can use to their advantage. Rest assured, though, that we understand how these issues affect how you play and enjoy the game, so solving them is of paramount importance to us.
