Today's update is a skiller's dream. Shift-click drop, Construction keyboard shortcuts, weedless farming... And a plethora of other quality of life updates!
An option has been added under the controls section of the settings tab which, when enabled, allows you to hold shift and left-click to drop an item from your inventory.
This option is disabled by default.
Motherlode Mine Quality of Life
Larger pay-dirt sack
For the price of 200 Nuggets, you can now double the capacity of the pay-dirt sack in Motherlode Mine by speaking to Prospector Percy.
The HUD shown while in the Motherlode mine now displays how much Pay-dirt is in the Pay-dirt Sack.
Improved upper level veins
The Ore veins found on the upper level of the Motherlode Mine now disappear a random period of time after they are first mined, rather than depleting faster if multiple people are mining them.
Skilling Quality of Life
Construction keyboard shortcuts
The furniture creation menu has been upgraded to accept keyboard shortcuts when building new furniture!
The number displayed to the left of each constructable item on the furniture creation menu is the keyboard shortcut which may be used to create said item.
Shortcuts may only be used to construct furniture in hotspots. You cannot use shortcuts with a workbench.
The Corner space within Bedrooms in your house now offer the Servant's Moneybag as a build option. This requires 58 construction, 2 Mahogany Planks, 1 Bolt of Cloth and 1 Gold Leaf to build.
You can deposit up to 3 million coins in the moneybag to automatically pay your butler while they performs tasks.
In Deadman Mode, coins can only deposited into the moneybag. They cannot be withdrawn.
Runecrafting Skillcape Perk - Non-degrading Pouches
Runecrafting pouches will no longer degrade if a Runecrafting skillcape or Max cape is worn while filling the pouch.
Existing pouches which are degraded will not be repaired in any way with this change, but they will also not degrade any further whilst a Runecrafting skillcape or Max cape is worn.
99 Agility Perk - Never Fail Brimhaven Obstacles
If you've achieved level 99 Agility, you'll no longer fail any of the obstacles within the Brimhaven Agility Arena!
Blast Mine - Left-click place dynamite
It is now possible to place Dynamite into rock cavities at the Blast Mine via a left-click option, rather than having to use Dynamite on a cavity.
For a cost of 50 Tithe farm points, Farmer Gricoller of the Tithe farm will allow you to permanently rid your farming patches of the burden of weeds.
After unlocking this reward, you'll only need to rid your farming patches of weeds once more in order to clear them permanently!
