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, we’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 Zuriel’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 we’ve revamped:

White armour, including initiate and proselyte.
Black armour, including elite, trimmed, gold-trimmed and heraldic.
Mithril armour.
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.
Torva armour.
Bandos armour.
Barbarian Assault fighter’s torso.
Warrior, Berserker and Neitiznot helms.
Varrock armour, all tiers.


Studded leather.
Dragonhide: green, blue, red and black, and all blessed variants.
Armadyl armour.
Robin Hood hat.
Ava’s equipment.

Zuriel thumb

Mystic robes, including light and dark variants.
Enchanted robes.
Infinity robes, including all elemental variants.
Zuriel’s equipment.

General Use/Non-specific:

Void Knight’s gear, including style-specific headgear and elite variants.
Slayer Helmet, including full variant.

We’ve made each set look more imposing as the level requirements rise, and we’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 game’s look – be sure to continue giving us your feedback on RuneScape’s visuals on the forums.
