Improvements to Vanguard and Chambers of Xeric have been released to old school RuneScape.

Due to community polling, vanguard stats have seen some changes. For example, defense has been reduced, with HP increasing. Additionally, the melee vanguard’s high magic defense has been exchanged with melee defense. Aggro range and spawn positions have been tweaked as well, with the former being reduced. Finally, at least one Overload is guaranteed. However, more changes will come regarding HUD and more.

Chambers of Xeric has seen improvements as well, specifically, the following issues received fixes:

  • Rebalanced the scavenger beasts’ loot table to include a more reasonable amount of cicelies and endarkened juice.
  • Altered the positions of crystals in one of the crab rooms, to not be as much of a hindrance on raids efficiency.
  • Fixed an issue where players would be hit by Vespula’s melee attack if the Abyssal Portal died.

Finally, Bounty Hunter world, specifically w535 AUS, has been removed. You can catch the full update of these changes and improvements for old school RuneScape here.
