The news comes with an update for Old School Runescape with a focus on Iron Man. In addition to bug fixes, the new update includes a party chat and loot broadcast with quest completion, battle achievements, and level milestones also deserving of an announcement in the new chat. There is another update planned for the next few days which will focus on expanding party storage, emergency teleport shards, and entering party member homes.
Jagex also listened to the feedback played and added a solid gold sink to the game.
“The Golden Sink requires 47 constructions to build. You’ll need 10 Condensed Gold, 5 Gold Leaf, and 5 Mahogany Planks to build it. Condensed Gold, you say? It’s a new material available from the Keldagrim Stonemason Shop for the exorbitant price of 10 million GP… each.
They go on to say that the best part about The Golden Sink is that it actually works like a sink.
When it comes to money, Jagex has also increased the banking space in Old School Runescape, for both F2P and P2P players. Additional bank space is purchased in sets of 40, with a total of 9 sets available, meaning there are 360 additional spaces available. According to the dev blog, “each set costs more than the previous one, and multiple sets can be purchased as one.” The initial expansion will cost you 1 million GP while the final block will cost 500 million GP.
