This week's update brings the latest Achievement Diary - as chosen by you in the Guaranteed Content poll!

Discover a wide range of activities and tasks to perform throughout Varrock, taking you from the Barbarian Village right through to the limestone mine near the Rag and Bone Man; from the depths of the city's murky sewers to the highest point in the city!

Get ready to investigate dungeons and spiders' lairs; listen to stories from the elderly; discover Varrock's various shops and experience the very best that Varrock has to offer.

With a wide range of achievements for you to complete, you will have your work cut out if you wish to complete every last one of them. Those willing to put in the effort, however, will find themselves well rewarded with a series of useful items for completing the easy, medium and hard tasks.

Your skills will be pushed to their very limit if you wish to become a true master explorer of Varrock!

SummaryWhere to start The Achievement Diary - Varrock

Speak to Rat Burgiss in the south of Varrock, Reldo in Varrock Library or Vannaka in Edgeville Dungeon


Also this week, we find an unlikely pairing of graphical improvements...

From Pirates' Cove in the north-west to Mos Le'Harmless in the south-east, pirates everywhere are rejoicing as they unpack shipments of stunning new clothes and fashion accessories. Decked out in their new jackets, tricorns hats, hooks, peg-legs and caps, the pirates of RuneScape have never looked more... um... piratey. So, the next time you're fighting for your life against one of these fearsome swashbuckling seafarers, take a moment to admire their outfits.

The children of RuneScape have also been given a bit of a makeover. Check out the slouch of Wilough and Shilop in Varrock, the shifty eyes of the Urchin in Pollnivneach, or maybe the anaemic pallor of Smiddi Ryak as she fights for her life on her Trek to Paterdomus. No matter whether they have been naughty or nice, the little scamps have all received a fresh new look.

Hurrah, only half an hour late this time instead of a full one. I'm going to try to do the Easy ones in the next hour or so and the Medium ones tomorrow, sadly like most people I lack the levels for the Hard tasks.

According to Reldo the rewards are armor and a special reward for each of the difficulties.

The "Highest point in Varrock" in the easy tasks is one of the towers on the castle in case anyone was wondering.

The two things that stood to me as stupid things which I don't really want do is

- Training cats/rat catching. I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE that.
- Changing the location/finish of PoH and getting different family crest gauntlets. Seems like a waste of good GP to me, as I'm just going to end up changing things back to the way I like them.

Reward sounds interesting though, i wish it worked everywhere though.

Friend of Hiker
After glancing through the required tasks, it seems that I can do everything but the task that requires 73 smithing.

Good job, Jagex. Actually giving me something to work for! =D>

Anyone have a picture of this "Varrock Armour?"

It's just one single piece of armour you wear on your body spot. The plain Varrock armour looks a bit like Splitbark, the Varrock armour 2 (upgraded version) is more silver-ish. I'll get a picture of it soon.
