The Old School RuneScape team has been working on improvements for the recently-released Guardians of the Rift minigame. The mode got some changes this week along with several additional changes to Beneath Cursed Sands based on community feedback.

With the release of Guardians of the Rift, players have had a chance to chew it over and to suggest improvements. The changes this week include the ability for recoloring the Amulet of the Eye and the Lost Bag, which can now be made red, blue, or green with the corresponding abyssal dye. The Amulet of the Eye can also infinitely teleport you to the Guardians of the Rift lobby in case you need it. The Tarnished Locket and the Lost Bag have now been added to the Collection Log and will retroactively unlock there for anyone that received them in drops. That Collection Log will now also display the number of Rift searches and Rifts closed.

Changes to the Beneath Cursed Sands Master questline include a fix to the animation for the shadow boss, as well as a dialogue change for the Pharaoh's scepter charging dialogue. This will now let you know how many items are being taken and how many charges you've been given in return. There's also a tweak to the Keris Partisan weapon upgrade, which now no longer has a slash bonus.

Adjustments in the update include ending the Easter event until next year, fixing the combat achievement, “Finding the Weak Spot”, and a fix to what was an unintended one-tick skilling method. This was originally unintended but now the fix means that you can cut multiple fish in one tick and the team has decided to just leave it in. Additional typos and achievements have been fixed as well.

To read the full update details, head over to Old School RuneScape.
