"Mod Ash accidentally deleted some of the level-up messages for Construction a few months ago. We've now finally noticed, so these have been put back. He says he's sorry."

This sparked several rude and inappropriate responses attacking Mod Ash on the Rants section of the official forums, forcing Jagex's forum moderators to lock the threads.
  • 29 May - The city of Varrock and its guards are given a graphics update. Also, the Varrock Museum is given a large expansion. Players can now perform tasks for the museum curator to earn kudos and lamps which give experience to skills of their choice.
