Armour Graphical Update
Our biggest equipment update yet is here! As previewed at RuneFest 2011 , and building on the improvements already seen in the Barrows update and the Troll Warzone, weâ€™re proud to present our latest batch of graphical improvements to armour and shields. Taking into account your feedback from Runefest and the forums, everything from adamant to Zurielâ€™s has been spruced up to look distinct (take a look at an addy platebody next to a rune platebody), full of character and just plain amazing. Read on for full details of the gear weâ€™ve revamped:
Dhide art thumb
White armour, including initiate and proselyte.
Black armour, including elite, trimmed, gold-trimmed and heraldic.
Adamant armour, including trimmed, gold-trimmed and heraldic.
Rune armour, including trimmed, gold-trimmed, heraldic, gilded and all god-specific variants.
Dragon armour, including trimmed, ornate and corrupt.
Barbarian Assault fighterâ€™s torso.
Warrior, Berserker and Neitiznot helms.
Varrock armour, all tiers.
Dragonhide: green, blue, red and black, and all blessed variants.
Robin Hood hat.
Mystic robes, including light and dark variants.
Infinity robes, including all elemental variants.
Void Knightâ€™s gear, including style-specific headgear and elite variants.
Slayer Helmet, including full variant.
Weâ€™ve made each set look more imposing as the level requirements rise, and weâ€™ve gone out of our way to make many of the rarer variants stand out. What are you waiting for? Go and check out your bank!
Gnome on the Range
Gnome-related content is also given a fresh coat of creosote today, with a complete rework of gnome NPC models, chatheads and environments. Curved, stylised wooden architecture now pervades the Gnome Stronghold; lush, verdant topiary marks the borders of the Tree Gnome Village; and the top level of the Grand Tree really is a sight to behold, with some amazing lighting effects and a tremendous view. Each gnomish chathead and NPC model has been given a new level of detail too, so make sure to book in some face-time with these diminutive denizens of the forest.
Of course, this is all part of our ongoing efforts to overhaul the gameâ€™s look â€“ be sure to continue giving us your feedback on RuneScapeâ€™s visuals on the forums.
