This week's update introduces High Risk PKing worlds, the Stronghold Slayer Cave and another batch of Slayer Rewards.
Worlds 337 (PvP) & 365 are now High Risk worlds. While on these worlds you can NOT activate the Protect Item prayer. You will receive a warning before logging into PvP & High Risk worlds.
The Stronghold Slayer Cave is a vast network of tunnels recently discovered beneath the Gnome Stronghold. Nieve guards this cave and will only allow you to fight monsters assigned to you by a Slayer Master. The Slayer Ring has a new teleport option to the entrance of the cave.
Another batch of Slayer Rewards sees eight more features added to the slayer points store; you can now unlock larger amounts of Ankou, Suqah, Spiritual Mages, Black & Metal Dragons and Abyssal, Greater & Black Demons. These can be turned off at any time but will not refund your points.
The Leaf-bladed Sword is now available as a drop from Kurask & Turoth, requiring 50 Attack and 55 Slayer to wield.
