These Patch Notes were announced on 13 March 2014.
  • The Wilderness Rejuvenation update has been released, featuring:
    • Venenatis the spider, Vet'ion the skeletal champion and Callisto the bear, dropping the new dragon pickaxe.
    • A Crazed Archaeologist, a Chaos Fanatic and Scorpia the Scorpion Queen, dropping shards of new shields: the Odium Ward and Malediction Ward.
    • New higher=level rogues, dark warriors and bandits.
    • Mammoths.
    • The Wilderness red dragons have been replaced with lava dragons. Lava dragon bones give a 3x prayer bonus when buried on their island.
    • Ents, which turn into tree trunks when killed, allowing players to chop logs in banknote form.
    • Red chinchompas, in an area where hunters may use one more trap than their normal limit.
    • Three new runite rocks on the Ice Plateau.
    • Dark crabs, which may be fished using dark bait, which is dropped by various zombies in the Wilderness.
    • Level 84 Thieving chests behind the Rogues' Castle.
    • A new resource area, guarded by Mandrith who charges a fee for entry.
    • The Fountain of Rune has emerged in the north-east of the Wilderness, allowing spells to be cast without any runes, but giving zero XP.
    • A new God Wars Dungeon, where aviansies drop adamant bars in banknote form, and all other creatures have a chance of dropping the Ecumenical Key. The key grants access to any of the boss rooms in the main GWD without the need for a kill-count, and is destroyed when used.
    • A mysterious force around the Demonic Ruins recharges your Prayer slowly. This feature is available on F2P-style worlds; all other features are not.
    • All creatures in the Wilderness drop a Looting Bag. Tradeable items may be stored in the bank while you're in the Wilderness. They may only be removed if the bag is taken to a bank. If you die with the bag, it is lost, and its contents are dropped to the ground.
    • A new lever in Edgeville teleports players to the ruins near the Mage Arena.
    • A tally is now kept of all the player-kills you achieve and all the times you are PKed in the Wilderness, beyond a certain level, allowing your kills:deaths ratio to be displayed on screen. An option on a notice board by Edgeville Bank allows this to be shown or hidden.
  • Crystal equipment now reverts to a seed when dropped on death.
  • Untradeable items dropped on death in the Wilderness beyond level 20 are turned into small amounts of cash.
