The turkeys of RuneScape have been in hiding since last November, secretly plotting ways to secure protection in Gielinor and save themselves from an inevitable, roasted death. A year on, their planning has come to fruition, and they’re setting out on a journey to win the war against turkey-slayers, mustering support via diplomatic measures. With regular batches of turkeys appearing in Varrock over the holiday season, you won’t want to miss out on this Thanksgiving extravaganza! Find out more about the Turkey Takeover and get involved here.

The impact of Evolution of Combat on Slayer and Prayer has been the cause of much discussion among the community. During the beta, many players commented that Prayer was underpowered and that Slayer was now too intensive with the new ability system. To remedy this, we are increasing the buffs that Prayer offers for the EoC launch, and a couple of months ago we unveiled the Momentum ability to aid players with lengthy, low-intensity combat.
