If you have been stocking up on Castle Wars tickets or wandering around Gielinor praying for your run energy to come back, this week's update will put a smile on your face.
Ever since the idea of halos passed the poll Castle Wars fans have been desperate to see them introduced into the game. Rest assured, the wait was worth it. Mod Alfred put the time to good use and created some fantastic new Zamorak, Guthix and Saradomin-styled halos.
Halos have the following defensive stats:
- Stab: +11
- Slash: 12
- Crush: +10
- Magic: +11
- Ranged: -1
- Prayer: +3
Head over to Castle Wars and start saving, you can now purchase these halos from the reward shop for the low, low price of only 300 tickets.
New god books
If you're lucky enough to own a completed God book, pay Jossik a visit. Three new books have found their way into his possession and if you've had a prayer book from Jossik before he will happily sell you one of the new ones.
The stats of the new books are as follows.
Book of Law (Armadyl)
Book of War (Bandos)
Book of Darkness (Ancient)
Treasure trail hunters will find some new pages showing up in their caskets so head over to the HAM hideout and pick those pockets.
Agility-grinders rejoice, stamina potions are here. Created with a super energy potion and amylase, the stamina potion will restore 20% of your energy and reduce the rate that your energy drains when running by 70% for 2 minutes.
The stamina potion requires 77 herblore to make and the barbarian mix requires 86 herblore. You will only find amylase crystals in Grace's shop with a pack of 100 crystal costing 10 marks so parkour your way to your nearest rooftop agility course and start collecting!
