Shields are great if you're playing it safe, but if you're looking to kick out maximum damage, you should be willing to get both hands dirty. Our latest batch of Evolution of Combat updates is themed around this simple premise.

First up, we've rebalanced both dual wielding and two-handed damage to bring them onto a level plane. Whether you're a dual-dagger dervish or a maul-wielding marauder, you should be doing around 150% of the base damage you'd be doing with an equivalent one-handed weapon and shield. Runescape Gold This means that both styles are equally valid ways of pumping out damage, leaving the choice down to your tactical needs and personal preference.

We've also implemented full dual-wielding capabilities for magic users, meaning that you can now auto-cast a different spell from each hand: just right-click the spell's icon to find the option. Have fun coming up with cruel cocktails of Ancient spells to blast and debilitate your foes! You can also wield magic-oriented weapons alongside cross-class weapons. You could wield a crossbow and a book, a wand and an off-hand sword, or any other combination you can come up with.

Alongside the above changes, we've also switched the degrade system for the Player-Owned Ports armour sets to the one used for the armour sets available from Nex. Your top-end armour will now last much longer in battle.Runescape Gold.

Look out for brand-new magic and ranged abilities, coming soon!
