You’ll notice a lot of changes for the tooltips of combat abilities in RuneScape with the latest patch. The bright side is that this isn’t because the abilities themselves have changed; instead, the tooltips have just been updated for improved readability, consistent use of terminology, and general clarity. Ability duration is now written consistently, ability damage is clearly stated, and key words are now highlighted for easier reading. So now you can know what your abilities do much more clearly and consistently!
The patch also does change some elements of combat for balance purposes, of course, so you will notice things feeling a little different aside from the new and improved tooltips. There are also some quality-of-life changes including a multi-threaded rendering system getting rolled out for the update. Check out the full set of patch notes for all of the improvements and plan to read through all your combat tooltips tonight.
