First off, all combat familiars will now follow you into a fight much more promptly. Weíve also updated the Summoning status globe (the button near the minimap) so that you can configure what happens when you left-click on it. One of the many options will allow you to send your familiar into action against an NPC (or another player on a PvP World) with just one quick click.

If you want a place to keep your pets, you can now do this with a new room for Construction - the menagerie. Itís a pet-owned house to complement your player-owned one, if you will, in which you can store a number of fully grown pets of any kind. You could create a haven for all three god birds, for instance, or build your very own little dragonsí den.

While weíre on the subject of houses, your butler has learned when itís time to talk and when itís time to get on with it. So, when you are training and need the same materials you just used, you wonít need to explain what youíre after. If they come back from the bank with logs, you can send them straight to the sawmill. And if the butlerís payment is due and you donít have any money on you, they can fetch it from your bank the next time you send them there. They also follow you around unless told otherwise. Other features include a ĎMake-xí option for flatpack furniture and teleport tablets, and some options for the Teleport to House spell. You can set the spell to deposit you outside your houseís portal or into your house (with building mode switched on or off). More details for these updates can be found on the Knowledge Base.

In other news...

All longswords, as well as the rune and dragon scimitars, have received a slight graphical adjustment, as well as having their inventory icons modified to match.

In a similiar fashion to Soul Wars and the Fishing Trawler minigames, we've added an activity bar to the Great Orb Project. As expected, your activity is maintained when contributing, but if the bar drops too low you'll be removed from the game.


IMO it's time for JaGEx to make some real updates...

> If you are talking about F2P uptades, yes. you are right. If you are talking about P2P updates, allowing players to own the three god birds is a heck of an update, as well speeding construction training.

yeh we need more quests and a new skill wouldnt hurt

MMG said the next skill was going to be F2P. Though there are many more urgent things like Attack Potions, Quests, and new Minigames.

Arthur, I can't really say if the P2P updates are good or not, simply because I don't test them, and I'm not affected by them directly either. So most of the time I don't care much.

For some reason, I think Taverly area will soon be open to F2pers, as well as Herblore... Just a feeling I have. Not all herblore stuff, but some

The Menagerie's pretty cool, I have a lava habitat and 10 pets in there tongue.gif they roam the house just like the butler tongue.gif its cool!

As a responce to your reply, my dear friend, my eyes have seen that cactus's are more and more aware that us, humanity, are becoming a threat to their existance and perduration in The Earth.
Now as I was revolving around this theory and idea ocurred to me. What if cactus's were the actual creators of our beloved planet Earth? What if we, human kind, are nothing but plain pieces of paper flying in the air beeing blown by mighty beeings which disguise themselves as what we know as "cactus's".
Thus it may sound somewhat strange, I believe the day in which cactus's will rebel against us is near. We must be prepared.. We cannot let cactus's take away what we, humanity, have created!
Unite, my dear friend, with us against the battle that is yet to come.


you showed me your house yesterday and it looked pretty good lol
