RuneScape January 24 Patch Notes

Runescape released their brand new January 24th update today, so here is the full list of changes and fixes with this patch. Like the original tweet as the update implies, today’s update is more of a bug fix update than anything else. That being said, this is a big bugfix update, with fixes for areas like Het’s Oasis, the mobile version, and more. While today’s update isn’t anything out of the ordinary, it’s good to see that all this time later Jagex is keeping its flagship titles up to date. There was even the recent leagues update for Old School RuneScape players, which further shows their commitment to the games. Without further ado, here are all the news with Runescape in its January 24 update!
