March Patch Week - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

Just a short one this week, as we sort through some tweaks and updates - check out the Patch Notes for today's changes!

March 12th : Scheduled Maintenance
Begins 09:00 GMT

We have scheduled essential planned maintenance for all RuneScape and Old School game worlds on Tuesday March 12th at 09:00-11:00* (UTC) / 01:00-03:00* (PST) / 19:00-21:00* (AEST).

During this period, all game worlds will be temporarily unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this downtime and will keep players informed of any changes to this estimated schedule.

*approximated end of downtime.

Prime Gaming
March has been the final drop

We have some important news to share for 'Scapers who benefited from loot via Prime Gaming. Our campaign with Prime Gaming has come to an end, and as a result, there will be no more RuneScape Prime Gaming loot drops for the foreseeable future.

We know plenty of you out there loved these drops and this is likely disappointing news - but we hope you enjoyed the loot you gained over the years!

Forums Sunsetting
March 28th – final date

Ahead of the forums finalising their shutdown on March 28th, we would like to remind any players who wish to save any information or posts to do so ahead of the final date. Find out more about this update in our initial blog.

What's up next?

Starts March 7th | Ends March 13th | Academy of Heroes

To celebrate the updates to combat, the Academy of Heroes will open their doors once more for an All Star event! Not only will all the bosses make appearances throughout the run, but on the final day all of them will be available to fight! Each boss brings with them three combat overrides, including a brand new one per boss!

Battle your way through Zamorak, Arch Glacor and Croesus to get your hands on the new Chaotic Assault, Azure Hurricane and Fungal Death's Swiftness overrides – or past favourites Chaotic Swiftness & Hurricane, Azure Sunshine & Berserk and Fungal Tendrils & Assault...


March 11th and 12th: Echo of Croesus and Fungal Overrides

March 13th: All of the above!

Finding and killing a boss will yield you a full set of overrides – here's a look at the new ones:

Starts March 14th | Ends March 18th | Loot Rooms

Do you take your chance with a Rainbow Chest? Or want something spicier like a Phoenix Chest? When a chest is selected, a copy is placed into the Loot Room. Once the Loot Room is full you can open all those chests for free!

Patch Notes
Fixes and Improvements in this Week's Game Update


These updates have been applied during the previous week

  • Damage numbers for Manifestation of Erethedor's Corruption Shot have been corrected.
  • Fixed an issue that made auto and special attacks in legacy combat mode much more powerful than intended. This fix affects PvM and PvP.
  • Fixed an issue that allow the Instability special attack to be cast with no cooldown if you swapped to the Lunar Spellbook before activating the special.
  • Fixed an issue that meant players that died before Thok's Smashing Buffs started were unable to reclaim any items held by Death.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed some players to start Mandrith's Slayer Challenge before reaching level 101 in the Slayer skill.

Combat Update

  • The position of the freedom animation was raised, so it doesn't appear on the floor.
  • Completed a pass over animation priorities for ranged abilities to ensure animations feel more fluid.
  • Corruption Blast now spreads correctly while fighting certain slayer monsters.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the metamorphosis ability to reduce PvP damage rather than increase it.
  • The Split Soul icon now correctly reverts back to Soul Split when buffs are cleared.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Draconic Slash (Dragon Scimitar) special attack to be removed from the players' buff bar upon being recast before the cooldown had finished.

Kandarin Graphical Update

  • Lighting brightness has been adjusted in Prifddinas.
  • The blue crystal has been changed back to white on top of the walls in Prifddinas.

Quest Requirement Cleanup

  • Corrected a couple of typos when using a rose-tinted lens on Betty's counter during While Guthix Sleeps.
  • Added handling for Hand in the Sand and While Guthix Sleeps when both quests are eligible to use Betty's counter."
  • Added 43 Magic requirement to Dimension of Disaster: Defender of Varrock, as it previously relied on inheriting 59 Magic from Family Crest via Defender of Varrock.
  • Removed a couple of lingering 30 Defence requirements from Between a Rock's golden helmet.
  • Lowered While Guthix Sleeps' 65 Defence requirement to 40 Defence, since it no longer requires King's Ransom, which no longer requires 65 Defence.
  • In Blood Runs Deep, Brundt the Chieftain now only comments about one of the benefits of Fremennik Sea Boots 3 if you've claimed this reward.


  • Max has finished levelling Necromancy and has reclaimed his Max Cape.
  • Players will no longer see a message about unlocking a new appearance for Miso after each Rasial kill if they're above 1,000 kills but have no yet unlocked the base Miso pet.
  • Small Turoths had 42 Ranged instead of Attack, this has been corrected.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Miso's VFX from appearing if the pet was used as a familiar override.


  • Fixed an issue that prevented Rune pads in the Zamorak boss fight from charging
  • Fixed an issue that caused the rewards information text to overlap with icons within the Treasure Hunter probabilities interface for certain promos.
  • Fixed typo in Air Mage's Staff in the Oddments Store.
  • Fixed an issue that caused fully charged augmented items to display they are running out of charges.
  • Rebalanced the minibosses in the Desert Slayer Dungeon Miniquest.
    • They all have more HP, damage and have been cleaned up in general.
    • The Basilisk Boss in the Desert Slayer Dungeon Miniquest deals magic damage.
    • The Basilisk Boss deals damage to players that wear a mirror shield.
  • The camera tilt effect inside The Barrows: Rise of the Six Instance has been disabled.
    • Camera shake setting is now taken into account during the dungeon collapse sequence.
    • Camera shake intensity has been reduced.
  • Removed a reference to Protean Planks as an option in the required items list of the New Foundations quest, since Protean Planks can no longer substitute for Planks.
  • Various monster attacks that left icicles on the ground are no longer festive. (bah humbug!)
  • Master completionist and master trim completionist capes now can be worn with an active grace period.
  • Both of the exit options for the Sinkhole are now available.
  • The Fairy Wand can now be Keepsaked before completing the Fairy Tale III quest and the wand won't disappear from the Keepsake box when the quest is completed.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the boss timer in Vorkath boss fight to display time since last game update.
  • Resolved an issue that caused the experience from the Tears of Guthix minigame to be given to an incorrect skill.
  • The Clan Cloak will now remain equipped if players log out.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Dark shard of Leng and Dark Silver of Leng to use incorrect inventory icons.

RuneScape Art Community 5th Birthday Anniversary

The Runescape Art Community – or RAC for short – run a super wholesome and fun community where you can share, comment on, and create art relating to both RS3 and OSRS!

It's a place of inspiration and beautiful creative work open to all folks who enjoy Runescape and art. This month they celebrate their five year anniversary – happy birthday folks!

To celebrate five years, the theme for March is - PARTY! There's going to be an animation collaboration to the song Rasputin – signups are now closed, but the results should definitely be worth seeing – and you can still participate in their Monthly Prompt Party by drawing your Runescape character dancin, groovin', and just generally living it up party style.

You could even make a banger rave song in the manner of Sea Shanty 2 for your faves to party to! Let inspiration be your muse...

A special thanks to @rallis_fatalis, @ninthcloud and @ilsa_the_artist for providing their beautiful art!

- The RuneScape Team
