Gazing for the Win in January

We’re now one twelfth through 2018. Our illustrious writers kicked off the year with a look forward to the year ahead. After 2017 and the change in path we saw for RuneScape, that’s only natural. It wasn’t long until we got word that one of the first updates of 2018 would be the ability to replay Sliske’s Endgame. This got Alex thinking, what if we could replay the other quests that are slated for 2018? Alex Analyzes in Let’s See That Again. 2018 is going to be a huge year for Jagex and we often ask what string of updates and on what note could net them a win? Tanis brings up this very key point in RuneScape for the Win in 2018 and talks about what those updates could be and why success is critical. Finally, continuing on the questing note Colton talks about Broken Home and why it’s often under-appreciated. The quest came out as a Halloween event a few years ago but still remains a marker point on environment art and immersion for RuneScape. What would happen if future quests took this road?

Our first Skill of the Month this year saw a massive lead change halfway through the month. Sorensen57 rose like a rocket to gain 47,089,348 experience throughout the entire month! Astounding. Here’s your trophy:

Pyrnassius came in second with 17.9 million experience and Xbladez came in third with 9.7 million experience. The Construction Skill of the Month is now underway.

This month RSBANDBUpdate! also expanded to feature a new Monday feature that sums up the week’s RuneScape update and patch notes called none other than The Weekly Byte. You can find that on YouTube. If you want to subscribe to our channel visit

A little over three years ago, a quest came into the Runescape world which revolutionized the way quests could be done. It’s environmentally impeccable, from the music to the filters to the overall feeling of unease and dread. The story is unique, interesting, and on top of all of this, it provided us with the […]

It’s no secret that 2017 wasn’t exactly kind to RuneScape. Between half finished updates and the debacle that was expansions, many people were just ready to say goodbye to that year. The time to look ahead with new optimism and vigor is here. RuneScape turns seventeen years old this year and needs a win. If […]

Alex’s Analysis – Let’s See That Again

2018, y’all. New year, new beginnings, and new endings. Runescape’s let out their plans for 2018 and, compared to 2017 with the release of Menaphos and 2016 with Sliske’s Endgame, seems a little underwhelming. I won’t talk about it much, since I know you guys are capable of reading and I’m sure you’ve already given […]

Before we look forward let’s look back to December 2017. December 2017 was a month where we saw one of RuneScape’s most favourite quest lines have a quest added to it, Evil Dave! Colton gave us a review of the largely comedic quest in Evil Dave and DOOM DOOM, DOOMLY DOOM!. December also saw one […]
