Cows, Chickens, Rabbits and the Fishing Trawler

posted by on 31st March 2007, at 9:24pm

Jagex took us again by surprise this month as, along with a massive extension of the Dorgeshuun caverns, they treated us to a few smaller updates.

Much to the delight of many aspiring fishermen, Jagex has improved the Fishing Trawler minigame. Captain Murphy, through adventurous expeditions of many leagues, has discovered a new spot swarming with delicious fish, just waiting to be caught! Unfortunately, he can’t bring in the bounty all by himself (though I’m sure he wishes he could)! Now, those who will take on the challenge of the Fishing Trawler will find that they are reeling in many more fish than they originally would have. So gather together your fishing gear, adventurers, and go catch some fishies!

Also included in this update was yet another of Jagex’s many ongoing monster make-overs. This time, cows, chickens, and rabbits have had a complete makeover! Now, whether you be a beginning player training, a collector of valuable hides, or you just hate animals, you can enjoy ruthlessly murdering fantastic-looking creatures!

In other news. . .

Your character now does not stop while he or she is in the middle of an action, should you feel it necessary to arrange your inventory while you are hard at work. Also, similar changes have been made to the prayer interface; now the buttons light up as soon as you click them, rather than waiting for the signal to reach the game servers.

Yet again the anchor (from the Great Brain Robbery quest) has had its stats upped yet again. Its strength level has shot from a mere 87 to an intimidating 100, and its crush attack has enlarged from 80 to 92. Also, in the pirate-y land of Mos Le’Harmless, greedy old Smithing Smith has raised the charging fee for repairing players’ broken anchors. He has raised his price to 230K gold pieces.

Last but not least, there is a handy-dandy new button on the login screen. It allows players to move between game worlds much more easily. Unfortunately, if you have the un-signed version of the applet, you will not have access to this feature.

Thanks for reading. . . Have a great spring!
