In RuneScape’s seemingly endless Making of Archaeology video series, players can get a deep dive into nearly everything that went into the creation of the Archaeology skill’s art assets, from concept art of dig sites to environment creation and texturing to animation of flying and characters. For fans of this kind of thing, it’s a pretty insightful look, though there is the usual TL;DW if you’re not keen on watching over an hour’s worth of footage.
Meanwhile, OSRS players are getting the first updates that were voted for in Poll 71. These updates are focused primarily on the vanguards room in the Chambers of Xeric, with adjustments to the vanguards’ stats, a swap of the melee vanguard’s magic defense with its melee defense, reduced aggro range, and guarantee of at least one Overload from the vanguards.
Further Chambers of Xeric adjustments include things like a rebalancing the scavenger beasts’ loot table, adjusted positions for crystals in crab rooms so they’re not a hindrance, and a fix for an issue with Vespula’s melee attack if the Abyssal Portal died.
