The following is a list of upcoming updates, derived from official Jagex content:
|Official Jagex Sources for Old School RuneScape|
These updates are being developed. Some are TAPP (Thursday, All-Day, Personal Projects) developed by Jagex employees in their own time.
Theatre of BloodEdit
A new raid set in Meiyerditch.
Mod Ash's TAPP involves reworking the entire farming skill to make growth time more consistent.
The rework also aims to make use of underused patches, such as allotments and hops, by adding more types of crops, such as a dragonfruit tree.
In addition, the Farming Guild, which will be located west of the Shayzien House, will have a requirement of level 60 to enter, but other features in the guild may require higher levels to access. For example, a redwood tree patch within the guild requires level 80 farming to access.
Dragon Slayer IIEdit
A grandmaster quest which involves uncovering the lost history of the dragon race, visiting old and new locations across the world. The quest will add a Myths Guild, which will contain adamant and rune dragons, and the Corsair Cove, a free to play area.
This update is scheduled for release on 4 January 2018.
More can be read in the developer's blog here.
Wilderness Rejuvenation v2Edit
Bosses found in random locations within the Wilderness will drop new best in slot god capes that are twice as good as current god capes. These are stated to be much more challenging to obtain.
Revenant Caves are also proposed, which will build on the principles of the original. Containing monsters of various levels, higher level monsters are stated to use "Pker" style attacks, with potential for unique rewards. Potential for unique rewards
Bounty Hunter reworkEdit
Players can be given a task to kill someone using specific gear. For example, players may have to kill a player while wearing a set of Barrows equipment or kill them while wielding a specific weapon.
