Newspaper detail.png

A Newspaper is an item that tells about the different going-ons in and around Varrock at that time. However, it is never updated. Players can purchase an issue for 50 coins from Benny in Varrock Square. Benny's shouts reveal that it is called the Varrock Herald; this is something the contents do not mention. Buying a Newspaper is required for the Easy Varrock Diary.

The newspaper also contains a link to the Gielinor Gazette on the official Old School RuneScape website.

This item cannot be traded on the Grand Exchange.

Varrock gets Makeover!

The city of Varrock is the latest recipient of a complete makeover. When interviewed, King Roald said, 'In order to keep visitors coming to see the sights of our beautiful capital, we felt that tidying-up the city would be more effective than just issuing a decree - make sure you visit the new museum while you are here.'
