The long awaited RuneLite release is finally here! We'd like to thank you all for your patience while we ironed out the bugs and made sure that the client was smooth enough for the public. We'd also like to thank all of our beta testers for helping to expedite this process.
While we're confident enough to release RuneLite to everyone, due to the size of this update there are certainly bound to be bugs which he hope that you'll report to help us patch them up as quickly as possible. While there shouldn't be any major bugs (eg. Client crashes), it may still be advisable that certain accounts (such as Hardcore Ironman) take precautions and do not perform risky activities on the RuneLite client just yet. You can choose to play the regular Alora client through the launcher if you'd like.
The launcher must be redownloaded to give you the option to launch via RuneLite, and you can download it here:
Alora Client Launcher
NOTE: If you are currently on the RuneLite beta, you should still download this launcher to get the latest version, as well as the auto-updating feature so that you always have the newest client.
Once it's downloaded once, it'll auto-update RuneLite every time we release a new update. RuneLite is compatible with all operating systems, and OpenGL HD is now functional via RuneLite as well. At the moment, HD on Mac is not supported, though we will work on providing GPU/HD support for our Mac users in the near future.
Aside from the RuneLite update, we've managed to bring some major content updates to the server as well. This includes a brand new minigame, Pyramid Plunder! You'll be able to train Thieving in a unique way, while on the hunt for the elusive Blisterwoood flail. Rocky pets can now be recolored to a Red Panda or a Tanuki by using different berries on him. You'll also be able to make other players' hitsplats appear as a slightly darker color than your own. Other noteworthy features include the ability to heal venom/poison by clicking on your HP orb, Cape racks and Toy boxes in POH, and an abundance of bug fixes and miscellaneous QoL updates.

The most recent potion that was sipped will be the effect that will take hold.

Their inventory will be checked for the lowest-level potion that can cure either their poison or venom (starting at anti-poison up until anti-venom+).

We’ve also changed the interface used for teleports, and it now uses a teleport scroll that has all of the options visible at once. The boulder jump shortcut north of the dense essence mine can now be used to return from the soul altar. Players using this shortcut will require level 49 agility to use it, and it is a one-way shortcut, meaning it can only be used while returning from the soul altar. The Gauntlet Changes: Players will no longer need to deposit all of their equipment/Inventory items before entering the Gauntlet. These items will now be temporarily stored while the player is in The Gauntlet, and they’ll then be returned automatically when a player exits The Gauntlet.

Features: Resource highlighting: This configuration will highlight and draw an icon over resources in the gauntlet. Count boss/player attacks: This configuration will keep track of the number of attacks the boss has done, as well as how many you’ve done.

Keep an eye out for a development blog on a brand new, completely toggleable game mode which will transform your gameplay visually to that of ~2010 RS. Many players prefer the look of this era, and we'd like to set ourselves apart from other Oldschool servers by allowing players to play exactly how they want to. Here's a preview of what we're looking forward to, you'll notice the whip animations, characters, and NPCs are quite different:
We'll share more details very shortly on how this is achieved and when you can expect it, as well as some more previews
