Introducing the latest in shield technology: The Superfire Shield!
Created by combining a Dragonfire shield with a Dragon sq shield at level 95 smithing, the shield offers improvements over the Dragonfire shield in magic accuracy/defence and allows the user to fully block regular dragonfire attacks at the cost of destroying most items that would have been dropped by the dragon. It also looks pretty damn cool.
The superfire shield is capable of fully blocking up to 1000 dragon breath attacks, after which it will act like a normal Dragonfire shield. You can repair the shield using another dragon shield piece (left half).
Credit goes to Ripvayne for the idea, which was posted in the suggestions forum.

Fashionscape has arrived! Thessalia now sells colored gloves, boots, and capes. (Screenshot)
New vote rewards: Desert boots (white) and mourner’s gloves (black) have been added as vote rewards, costing 50 points each. Alrena will now also give free replacements for lost legends capes (you’ll need to use it on her first if you purchased it before this update).
Character customization: The ::char command has been removed (Sorry - but fuck commands). Instead, a “customize appearance” option has been added to Thessalia. New players now also start with a randomly generated features, and the character customization interface now remembers your appearance - no more starting from scratch each time!
Mark position on death: Donators will now automatically mark the position of their items if they die, unless it’s somewhere you can’t mark (like the Wilderness). Additionally, marked positions no longer expire after half an hour, and are remembered even if you log out.
Better switching: Increased the time threshold for moving items, making it easier to quickly switch gear even if your mouse moves while you’re clicking.
Longer death timer: Time before other players can see your items if you die has been increased to 2 minutes (from 1 minute), and the total despawn timer for items dropped on death has been increased to 5 minutes (from 2 minutes)
Ironman bugfix: Ironman accounts can no longer drop-trade non-tradable items (like firecapes) to their main characters - not sure why they would want to, but now they can’t.
Clan chat commands: Typing :: commands while on the clan chat tab no longer sends them as clan chat messages
