Ironman loot! Death by lava!
Introducing a much requested feature by those of you too lazy to organize your banks with placeholders: Bank search!
A new button has been added to the bank interface which when clicked brings up a search bar. Enter the name of an item, and the bank will filter out any items that don't match it.
The search bar supports the use of * wildcards, which match anything - for example, "black * (g)" will match "Black platelegs (g)", "Black platebody (g)", etc.
It also supports searching for multiple keywords, seperated by |. This makes retrieving multiple items much faster as you can type them all at once rather than having to clear the search in between.

Ironman characters now have the option to stop receiving duplicate rare loot! [Screenshot]
Ironman characters will no longer receive duplicate rare loot if they are missing other rare loot from the same set, and will instead receive a random piece that they were missing.
For example: If an ironman has full infinity except for the hat, the next time they would receive any infinity item as a drop, it will be guarenteed to be the hat.
This feature is only available to ironman characters, as regular characters can just sell duplicate drops and buy the items they need.
Note: To prevent abuse, if you lose a rare item, the game will not replace other drops from the same set with that item for 14 days.
Current sets include: Infinity, Chaos robes, Wands, Melee DK drops, Range DK drops, Magic DK drops, Trimmed armor, Wilderness hats.
This ability is ON by default, but can be enabled/disabled with the ::togglelootmode command.
You can now jump into the lava in the PK Arena! [Preview]
An option to jump into the PK Arena lava, killing yourself, has been added! This is replacing the donator ::suicide command, which has been removed.
If youíre trying to die quickly, it may still be faster to let someone else kill you - non donators must wait 30 seconds after leaving the safezone before they can jump into the lava, and canít do it if other people are outside of the safezone.
Donators can jump in with other people outside of the safezone, but they still have to wait 10 seconds after leaving it themselves and canít do it while being attacked.
In other news..
Combat tweaks: Your equipment now plays a more significant role (in relation to your levels) when determining your accuracy/defence. Your accuracy (and opponents defence) now has a bit more of an effect on how much damage you deal. In other words, armor is slightly more important now.
NPC Accuracy: The accuracy of all NPC attacks has been lowered a bit, reducing their damage output.
Hill giants: Lowered the stats of hill giants, making them easier for lower level players to kill without using a ton of food.
Item value: Certain high-end gear has had its priority when deciding which items to keep on death changed. Items most likely to be kept on death, in order: Barrows gloves, Completionist cape, Dragon boots, Ancient/master wands, Berserker ring, Chaos robes, Archer ring, Seers ring, Superfire shield, Dragonfire shield, Warrior ring, Godswords.
Brimhaven dungeon: Removed the 40 woodcutting requirement to enter brimhaven dungeon.
Chat limits: The character limit for in-game messages has been increased, so you shouldnít have to worry about your messages being cut off any longer. If the message youíre typing doesnít fit in the text box, it will now scroll left so you can always see what you are typing.
Chat badges: Added mod/admin ironman chat badges and increased the max number of different chat badges supported by the client.
Loadouts: You are now required to have entered your bank pin before you can re-equip loadouts.
Clan chat: You can now add people to your friends/ignore list or send private messages by clicking their name in the clan chat members list.
Superfire shield: Superfire shields will no longer destroy items dropped by assigned Slayer monsters, even when set to fully deflect damage. The maximum number of dragonfire breath attacks that can be blocked by a superfire shield has been lowered from 1000 to 500 - however you can now use dragon shield fragments to fully restore all 500 charges.
Donators area: You can now customize your hitmarks by talking to Larxus. One of the pillars near the magic trees in the donator area basement has been removed, as it was ugly and in the way.
Camo top (Vote reward) and Woven top (Donator cosmetic) sleeves are now the correct color.
Right clicking near the minimap while in Barrows in fixed-size mode now properly displays the right click menu.
Lighting fires inside the PK Arena safezone no longer prevents players from jumping back in on the tile where the fire was.
