Not playing Sea of Thieves for its launch today? You can still get your pirate on in an MMORPG: RuneScape has rolled out the punny Pieces of Hate update.
“RuneScape returns to the high seas today, launching Pieces of Hate, the epic finale to one of the MMORPG’s longest running stories. The concluding voyage of the 13-year old pirate quest series challenges players as they dive into the depths of underwater expeditions, conquer sea monsters, and battle zombie pirates, and is released just two weeks after RuneScape introduced deep-sea fishing into the game for the first time.”
Jagex says the questline will ultimately upgrade players’ teleporting books and create a use for rum that isn’t just drinking it – although why you’d waste good rum like that, I have no idea. Just remember that you’ll need 68 fishing to actually deep-sea fish, and you’re going to need an assortment of decently leveled skills to actually take meaningful part in the new content too, including agility, thieving, firemaking, and construction.
