Horacio has his heart set on some improvements to his master's already
meticulous garden this week. Rather than filling it up with flowers, a patio and
some crazy paving, Horacio is after one of the rarest plants on RuneScape.
Rarity may not be the biggest problem, however, as this plant requires all
your skill, cunning and a hefty stack of Woodcutting and Agility. Plant hunters
beware; this plant bites back, so no ordinary gardener can waltz in with some
clippers. It seems some Slayer knowledge could help with this Master quest.
Helping Horacio overcome this vine-based task may well prove handy in other
areas. Aside from a great reward, Horacio may have a need for a master pruner.

We have increased the number of ways you can acquire battlestaves, as
promised. Baba Yaga's shop on Lunar Isle now has a larger stock, the cost of
battlestaves in the Mage Training Arena shop has been significantly decreased
and, not to be outdone, Zaff now receives a daily stock. To acquire them, chat
to Zaff himself or right-click 'Buy Battlestaff'. The number available to you
depends on your level of achievement in the Varrock diary, and whether you are
wearing the correct Varrock armour. To find out how many staves you can buy,
Arhein is responding to the changes in demand for pineapples and seaweed by
adopting a similar approach to Zaff. He can now sell each player a limited
number of these items every day. Speak to him (instead of using his quick-trade
option) if you're interested.
The rock crabs east of Rellekka will frequently drop seaweed in the form of
banknotes, making them a more convenient source of this prized commodity.
Players may also burn kelp on a range or fire to get soda ash (kelp is found in
the underwater area, accessed during Recipe for Disaster).
There have been some adjustments to the prices of various other items in
shops. In particular, the TzHaar rune merchant's offer-price for buying chaos
and death runes off players has been adjusted so that they are no longer
affected by the number of runes in the Player Stock section of his shop. Aside
from this, the shop price for steel throwing knives has been raised in order to
avoid undercutting player prices.
It is no longer possible to use prayers in Glarial's tomb near the Baxtorian
Falls of Kandarin. The unusually large moss giants were already capable of
damaging players here, regardless of the Protect from Melee prayer, so this
isn't going to make a huge difference to their threat. Do be careful when you
venture in there!
A sapling designed for net-trapping
red salamanders near the Ourania Altar had become unavailable due to a
recent mapping bug. It's now been fixed, so you can go trapping there again.
Finally, we've added a right-click option to the gardeners who stand near
Farming patches so that you don't have to go through so much chat when you're
paying them to protect your crops.
