Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the newspaper that players buy in-game. For the newspaper project on this wiki, see RuneScape Wiki Post.

A Newspaper is an item that tells about the different going-ons in and around Varrock at that time.

Players can purchase an issue of the Varrock Herald for 50 coins from Benny in Varrock Square. In truth, the newspaper is almost useless, it is not updated but Benny still sells them. The main reason why people buy them is to complete a task in the easy section of the Varrock Achievement Diary.

Following the 2007 Hallowe'en event Update, the paper now makes reference to the visit of the Grim Reaper to Varrock, which is mentioned in Death's Journal during the 2007 Halloween event.

Another edition of the newspaper is seen briefly when completing As a First Resort..., as it contains a report about the opening of the spa in Oo'glog.

Varrock gets Makeover

The city of Varrock is the latest recipient of a complete makeover. When interviewed, King Roald said, 'In order to keep visitors coming to see the sights of our beautiful capital, we felt that tidying-up the city would be more effective than just issuing a decree - make sure you visit the new museum while you are here.'

Initial prices in trade

When the newspaper was first released, many people did not know about it, and people were selling it for ridiculous prices such as 500k. This was several months before the trade limit was imposed, and even before the trade window gave players any indication of the item's value.

The Herald announces a spa opening in Oo'glog.

However, this was not considered scamming as long as the seller did not claim that the item was rare or valuable. Rule 2 (during that time) specifically states: "It is not considered a scam to ask for large amounts of money for an item... It is a player's responsibility to make sure that they are paying a good price for an item."[2]

Criticism

It has been stated by many players that the Varrock Herald is an unnecessary addition to RuneScape. It has been suggested by some players that it was removed, edited, player-written or another issue was made, as it has never been changed. Jagex has recently suggested that they plan to update the Herald, although exactly how remains unknown. [3]
