This week we've got a plethora of quality of life changes for skilling related content. We've also got a brand new feature for tournament worlds: custom account stats! Let's get into the details.
Skilling Quality of Life
Agility pyramid reward improvements
The Agility pyramid arena has been shown a bit of love following last week's skilling quality of life poll. Golden pyramids can now be exchanged for 10,000 coins each and the experience you earn per lap has been increased by 8 experience for every agility level you have (up to a cap of 1,000 experience).
Brimhaven Agility arena reward improvements
The experience you earn from the Brimhaven Agility arena has been increased. For every Agility level you have above 40, you will now receive an additional 5 experience per ticket.
Note: The 10% reward from the Karamja diary does not stack with this additional experience.
Pharaoh's Sceptre teleports
The teleport options found on the Pharaoh's sceptre are now also available by right-clicking the sceptre in your inventory.
Slayer helmet right-click 'check' option
A right-click option to check your current slayer task has now been added to the slayer helm when it is held in your inventory.
Castle Wars bank boxes/crates
The crates and boxes surrounding the Castle Wars bank chest no longer have left-click options. Never again will you misclick on them while aiming for the bank chest!
Spellbook swap right-click options
You can now quickly choose which spellbook you would like to spellbook swap to by right-clicking the spell.
Stamina potions and antivenom with Share restore potion spell
It is now possible to use stamina potions and antivenom potions with the Lunar spell 'Share restore potion'.
Custom stats for Tournament Worlds
The tournament worlds have been a real hit with the Old School community. Thousands of you have expressed how much you've loved being able to let your hair down, forget about experience gains and go kick some noobs into next week in clan wars.
This week we're giving you another way to mix it up a bit more in tournament worlds. You can now select your combat stats using the chests found in tournament worlds. Right-click the chests and select "set-stats" to choose the build of your account.
We've also stocked up the tournament supplies with much more gear fitting for various different account builds.
We look forward to seeing what bizarre and marvelous account builds catch on in the next few weeks!
