Small Changes & Tweaks


 Issues and Hotfixes (July 7th)
Issues Raised Current Progress
(11:50 BST) We've received reports of some issues with Phosani's Nightmare:

  • Phosani's does not appear to wake up after first kill.
  • Thralls do not appear to attack anything inside Phosani's Nightmare.
  • No Sleepwalkers during final Phosani phase.
(13:25 BST) [FIXED] These issued have been resolved with the recent reboot.

We’re keeping it short and sweet this week with a cosy wee update packed of small changes to improve your day-to-day Gielinorian globe-trotting. We'll also give you a look at some of the content coming in July!


What's New

Ok, let’s get into this week’s update

Phosani's Nightmare

  • Personal Best now uses the precise timing setting properly.
  • Rifts will no longer spawn under Spores.
  • Phosani's loot drops will disappear after three hours as normal, rather than vanishing after two minutes.
  • The HP Bar should display correctly within both The Nightmare and Phosani's Nightmare.

We've also implemented various hotfixes since the launch last week. You can find the full list of fixes at the top of last week's newspost.

Equipment Rebalance

  • On the Set Bonus window, the Crystal Armour will now display the effect of each individual piece equipped, instead of requiring the full set to show you that much-needed info.
  • The Recipe Log for the Singing Bowl has been updated to include the Enhanced Crystal Weapon Seeds.

PvP World Rota

The PvP rota has moved to Period B:

  • 560 - (UK) - PvP World
  • 579 - (US) - High-Risk PvP World
  • 561 - (UK) - Free-to-play PvP World
  • 580 - (US) - LMS Competitive


  • Updated the following NPC's to preserve your attacks between type changes:
    • All Tekton Forms
    • All Maiden of Sugadinti Forms
    • All Chambers of Xeric Crystal Crab Forms
    • Wyrms (Including superior)
    • Vet'ion
    • Vespula
  • Slightly altered the healing values for Corporeal Beast to disincentivise purely special attacking the boss down, but still open up the method of killing the boss legitimately.
  • Many weapons have had their positions fixed on female characters so that they appear to be held correctly when equipped. En garde! Etc...
  • Workbenches in the Elemental Workshop have been updated to include left-click options. The bookcase at the quest start location has also been updated to give both items at once.
  • The Player Owned House farming tools in the workshop have been 'rebalanced' and now appear to respect the laws of gravity.
  • Hespori immunity now ends as soon as the last healer plant dies.
  • XP drops no longer overlap the Theatre of Blood Party Formation interface.
  • We’ve fixed the Fishing Trawler interface dodger.
  • The Ape Atoll glider button has been upgraded.
  • It's now a bit clearer visually whether bird nests are empty or contain seeds.
  • Imerominia's dialogue about the history of Kourend has had some incorrect numbers adjusted.
  • A grammatical error has been fixed in the description of some Kourend scenery.
  • A spelling error has been corrected in the menagerie of Player Owned Houses.
  • The coloured crystals of the Elf clans now restock faster in the shop, now that they have more uses.
