RuneScape Weekly Patch Notes – July 3, 2023

This week brings us fixes to rune pouches and a whole lot of Game Jam.

RuneScape 3

It’s that time of the week. You’re getting ready for another week of whatever it is you do. Who knows what this week will bring you? One thing that is for sure, though, is that with a new week comes new RuneScape patch notes. I have been looking forward to this week’s patch notes as I will soon receive a Steam Deck to play RuneScape on! Let’s see what they’ve released, updated, or modified in this week’s RuneScape patch notes as of July 3, 2023.

What’s New This Week in RuneScape


  • Hotfix: Fixed an issue that was causing empty Rune Pouches to be overvalued upon Death and too expensive to reclaim.

That’s it. Yep, a single hotfix this week. You may be scratching your head in confusion, but there is a good reason for this. Everyone is hard at work during Game Jam – a weeklong event where mods can choose whatever they like to work on in RuneScape. Some of the projects are very exciting; I have listed them below for you.
