This week's Old School update is here! We've got a number of quality of life changes, bugfixes as well as a new feature for clue scrolls. Let's get into the details.
Clue scroll step counter
If you've ever caught yourself half way through a clue and wondering how many steps in you are, wonder no more. All clue scrolls now have a right-click 'Check steps' option that will allow you to see exactly how many steps you have completed so far.
Kalphite lair agility shortcut
The agility shortcut unlocked as a reward from the elite desert achievement diary has been moved to take you much further through the kalphite lair. The shortcut now takes you from the very start of the lair directly to the entrance of the Kalphite Queen boss room.
Ape Atoll fairy ring
A new fairy ring has appeared on Ape Atoll midway through the agility course. Using this fairy ring requires completion of Monkey Madness and Daero's training.
In order to leave the small area where the fairy ring is located you will need a greegree and 48 Agility to continue through the remainder of the agility course.
In other news...
Recoil damage will now always target the entity that caused the initial damage, rather than the most recent entity to deal damage.
Feeding purple sweets to the sickly NPC during Temple Trekking no longer consumes the entire stack.
The Kalphite Queen and Vet’ion now award Slayer XP to the player who did most damage to both forms, not just their second form. As usual with Slayer, half of the XP is awarded to the player who dealt most damage, and the other half goes to the player who dealt the final blow.
The doors at the entrance of Barbarian Assault are now permanently open.
The bank deposit box found in Port Khazard has been joined by a bank chest.
