Retro Skin Suggestions - This Week In RuneScape

Hope you’re feeling creative folks, because we have an exciting task for you – we want you to send us your ideas for new in-game cosmetics! If out-of-game items are more your bag, we’ve also souped up our Merch Store for an even more streamlined shopping experience. Let’s take a look.

Retro Skins
Share your cosmetic ideas with us!

Got a brilliant idea for a retro skin? We know you have. We’ve received some incredibly imaginative player suggestions for new skins over the years. Now we’re bringing the whole community in on the process!

We want you to nominate retro skins for existing in-game items that you would like to see in RuneScape. Send us your best ideas on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit or Discord using the hashtag #RS3retroskins!

It could be any outfit or cosmetic alteration to an existing item, on any theme. Send us your idea by 23:59 Game Time on March 25th. After that, we’ll create a shortlist to put to a public vote.

Merch Store Update
Shopping just got smoother!

You may have spotted a few changes to the Merch Store last week. Our store partner, BSI, has migrated the store to Shopify! This brings a host of improvements, including:

  • Better general user experience
  • Product filters so you can sort by your size, and only see what's currently in stock
  • Local pricing – you can now see exactly what everything costs in your currency
  • Expanded shipping destinations – the store now ships to Brazil, and many more countries!
  • Reduced costs for tracked shipping, especially on larger orders of pins and keyrings to the US
  • Estimated shipping cost from within each product listing, before you add the item to your basket

Further improvements are expected over the coming weeks, so keep 'em peeled!. You can check out the new Store here.
