Before getting to the log itself, I'd like to say a few things.
Starting now, we're going to try to switch over to a different schedule of one smaller update every two weeks, instead of one large update every month or two. The new schedule will be looking in lines of 3-4 days spent on smaller updates, 10-11 days spent on larger updates. There is a poll ongoing until August 20, 2020, which will determine which large update we work on going forward. You can vote on the poll in this topic:
Birdhouses, bird snaring, box trapping, deadfall trapping, net trapping, and pitfall trapping have been rewritten fully.
All the animations have been matched to the OS ones, none of the traps will now use invalid animations.
Hunter now comes with sound effects.
Upon logging out of the game, all of your traps will fully collapse immediately.
Any traps placed in instances will collapse when the instance is destroyed.
Traps can now be set up using alternative methods. Example in case of pitfalls and deadfalls, you can just use the knife or the logs on the trap to begin setting this up.
The issue with having phantom traps, limiting you to less and less traps has been patched.
The way your Hunter traps attract creatures has been reworked to a different entity-based system.
If a player dismantles a trap before the prey manages to get caught in something, the prey will not glitch out.
A more detailed log on the changes found in Hunter can be found here:
PvP, Wilderness & Player Combat
Grey chinchompas' attack speed has been matched to OSRS.
The Kitchen knife is now a dagger-type weapon.
The Infernal pickaxe now has the proper attack animations.
One of the ents by the corporeal beast entrance will no longer spawn partially inside the tree.
Guard dog in Ardougne no longer spawns inside the wall.
Magic hut and pirate's hideout door interaction has been replicated to better match RS - it now has a fail chance to enter it, and no longer requires a lockpick to leave from the inside.
Added the remainder of the max capes to be safe upon death in under level 21 Wilderness.
God capes can be imbued by bringing the respective body part, after having imbuing a cape for the first time. Anyone who has imbued a cape before this update will need to do it once more, to take advantage of this. You no longer need all 3 for 1 cape.
Items from a Looting bag will drop on the ground with the same timers as they normally would, so dropping food becomes visible after some minutes, and other items become visible instantaneously.
Magic attacks no longer trigger the block animation.
Fixed a projectile delay for barrage spells.
Animations such as Vengeance, weapon attacks, and range attacks now correctly stall in accordance with OSRS inside of PvP areas.
The unarmed attack speed has been boosted by one tick, it took 3 seconds between each kick/punch before, this has been changed to 2.4 seconds.
Salve amulet (ei) now has a protection value of 220K.
Karambwan eating now works by eating the food item first, then drinking the option and finishing off with the karambwan. (Any other method will block the tick eating effect)
Pizzas now have the game messages when eaten.
Pizzas can be combo-eaten in accordance with OSRS.
If you're not in combat(and combat delay is 0), eating and then attacking starts combat with no delay whatsoever. Previously, eating at any given time would add 3 ticks to your combat delay.
Salamanders can now attack diagonally and the magic option on salamanders can now be selected without it redirecting to a different style.
Damage received is now reset upon leaving Wilderness areas, thus ensuring that any death you have after leaving Wilderness doesn't count as a PvP death.
Your defence roll against another player's attacks has now been multiplied by 0.825. This reduces the overall defence of every player in a PvP scenario by 17.5%, which I've found to be a sweet spot. This change does not affect attacks from monsters, only players.
The dragon bolts (e) special attack 'Dragons breath' now checks if the target has drank super antifire - previously, only normal antifire would provide protection against it.
Fake experience drops should no longer glitch out and display invalid icons/amounts when receiving large sums of experience at once.
Specials attacks now always trigger the skull when used against a player, assuming it was the first hit.
Edgeville dungeon boundaries improved so the first two tiles after going through the gate aren't wilderness.
Wilderness obelisk will no longer force-teleport people once the teleport has begun, if the user happens to leave by other means during it.
Wilderness ditch jump speed has been adjusted to allow quicker passing.
Slightly altered the formula for dragon claws. Previously, it would run through the four hit schemes of dragon claws and stop at the first one that 'rolled' successful damage against the target, regardless of what the damage was. I've now changed it to go through all four possible options and pick the one which is going to deal the highest amount of damage at the target.
Any hits that are executed on a player or NPC upon its death will now display for the first tick of the death. So for example, if you run a dragon dagger special at another player and the first hit was enough to kill them, previously, the second hit would not show up altogether. It will now show up. However any hits that are delayed further than that will be fully discarded - therefore if you run a dragon claws special and the very first of the four hits kills the target, only the first two hits will show up as they both appear on the first tick, and the two other hits will not display.
Rewrote the way freezing and stunning worked. Instead of relying on epoch time(how many milliseconds have passed since January 1st, 1970), it now relies on game process cycles(each cycle being 600ms). This helps create more precise freeze durations. I also re-adjusted a lot of the freezes overall with this change - Ice barrage for example was defined at 20,000 milliseconds which comes down to 34 ticks. I've changed it to match OS at 32 ticks.
Granite maul has been revamped, I'll write how it works now(some of these worked before too, but had problems with the functionality):
The combo from granite maul special to another weapon(e.g. a godsword) no longer adds an unnecessary extra tick of delay to when the hit can actually land.
The mechanic where clicking the special attack after having recently hit the target but being no longer in combat with them has been rewritten to match the conditions available in RS.
Players can pre-load granite maul special while being completely out of combat by double-clicking the special attack button and clicking on a player within two game ticks frame, any longer than that, the pre-load will not function.
After having hit a player, if the player is still within a one tile radius of the target(so physically next-to them, includes diagonal tiles), and the player is still under existing "combat delay" from the previous weapon attack(if the delay expires, this mechanic does not trigger), clicking the special attack an odd number of times within one game tick will re-initiate combat towards your last target and run the special attack(s) at them. So a short example is whacking a player with a godsword, switching to granite maul, and clicking the special attack bar either one or three times within one game tick. If you click just once, it'll retaliate against them and run one special attack at them. If you click three times, it'll retaliate and hit them twice. If you happen to click an even amount of times within the tick, it will not trigger the auto-attack at the last target and you must click them yourself. This mechanic might sound complicated but it has been replicated from RS.
The dagannoth king boss assignment has been merged together into one task, which covers all three kings. Anyone who has a specific dagannoth king assignment prior to this update will have it changed to this new assignment.
Zulrah, Alchemical hydra and Vet'ion no longer reset their stats during the transformation phases.
Dwarf multicannon can now be used at the appropriate places in the Mount Karuulm Dungeon.
Blue and black dragons located in the Taverley dungeon within the assignment-only area can no longer be killed off-task.
The quantity of the dragon thrownaxes and knives dropped by Drakes has been changed to 100-200.
Black dragon bones in Wilderness are now dropped in noted form if the elite Wilderness diary is completed.
Ogress warrior and shaman now count towards the ogre assignment.
Repositioned a stuck cave horror.
One of the nechryaels in the slayer tower basement has been moved outside of a wall.
Arclight's drain special now stacks additively.
Superiors will no longer spawn if you're on an assignment but not within the area that you've been assigned to.
Kalphite queen stats have been updated, and it no longer resets its stats upon transformation.
Spiritual mage combat definitions updated using Wikia.
Troll generals now count towards Troll task.
Lizardmen west of the canyon now have definitions and drops.
Infernal mage max hit has been changed from one to eight.
Hespori's vines no longer damage the player post-death.
Zulrah resurrection now restores prayer points and removes toxins.
Grotesque guardian rare drops have finally been fixed and can now be obtained.
The grotesque guardians slayer assignment can no longer be obtained without first having unlocked the rooftop access.
TzTok-Jad should no longer be able to get healed past the point of death, thus allowing players to obtain two killcount sometimes.
Inferno pillars no longer regenerate stats or hitpoints.
Superiors are now only aggressive to the player they spawned for.
Jar drops from bosses are now announced like other rare drops.
The drops received by Hespori upon killing it are now announced in your chatbox.
Cave kraken can no longer be harmed by melee damage.
The trident of the seas drop from Kraken will no longer be untradeable when first received.
Ankous located outside of the Wilderness will no longer drop dark fishing bait.
Wyrms no longer do an animation glitch when transforming back from the active form to the inactive one.
If you are assigned a hellhound task from Konar you will only be able to kill Cerberus if the task is defined inside of Taverley Dungeon. This mechanic applies to other bosses as well that may have been missed in the past.
Slayer-boosting items will no longer work on tasks from Konar if the task is being "completed" at an invalid location - previously it'd effectively give infinite slayer helmet boost for faster experience if that was used.
The slayer skillcape perk of 1/10 chance of receiving the same task back to back now works with Konar however keep in mind the location may vary. In additional to this it is also important to note that cancelled tasks may also be considered the "last task assigned".
Lizardman Shaman's purple spawns will no longer spawn if the user is out of view from the Shaman. You will also no longer be damaged if your out of sight of the Lizardman Shaman upon the explosion effect.
The bonecrusher necklace in your inventory will now restore your prayer if you are within the Catacombs of Kourend when you receive a bones drop.

Vorkath's ranged max hit lowered from 35 to 32.
Using crumble undead on the zombified spawn now provides correct amount of experience.
Vorkath no longer drops amethyst bolt tips.
Vorkath's loot is now dropped at the correct locations, relative to where the player is standing on Vorkath's death. This ensures that the loot tracker plugin can always recognize Vorkath's drops.
Vorkath now resets its attack counter upon death, and randomizes the current special attack type.
Demonic gorillas have been rewritten, old code has completely been scrapped:
Alongside the demonic gorillas, tortured gorillas now better resemble OS in terms of mechanics and come with a proper combat script.
Drops revised to more or less match OS.
Sound effects included.
Multi area introduced to the crash site cavern.
Cerberus has been completely rewritten from scratch:
It now comes with the combo attack that was previously missing.
The combat script now properly follows the patterns that exist in RS and isn't randomized.
The ghosts' attacks now register when the animation starts, not when it lands on you, so the according prayer must be up on the start of the animation.
Sound effects included, and certain animations have been corrected.
Alchemical hydra has had some bugs fixed, although not all yet, further fixes will come in the future:
The alchemical hydra now resets its attack counter after death.
In addition to the above, the attack style with which the hydra begins the next kill is now randomized.
During the transition from the third phase to the last one, if the last hit that hydra did was the third hit in the sequence, it will no longer swap the attack style twice, thus resulting in it continuing with the same style that was in the third phase.
The fire phase no longer causes players to get teleported back into the fire if they die through the fire upon death.
The hydra can no longer be poisoned or venomed.
The hydra's poison attack no longer applies poison to you once you've respawned at home after death, if the timing was luck enough.
Orrvor Quo Maten now asks the players if they wish to enter the Hydra's lair when they already have items sitting in his collection chest from the previous death.
The stun caused by the lightning attack by hydra no longer resets the player's current action(which would usually be combat).
The "You're stunned!" message sent by hydra and kree'arra is now filterable.
Players can now enter the Hydra's lair even without a slayer assignment to unlock the "Alchemical Attack!" music track.

- If your thieving level is 75-94, you have a 11% chance of finding 3 grubs, a 13% chance of finding 2 grubs and a 26% chance of finding just 1 grub.

- At 49 thieving or under, you have a 50% chance of finding just 1 grub. There is always a 50% chance of finding no grubs - this value prior used to be around 40%, but has now been increased to 50% to match RS.
Scouting for raids on a mobile device has been implemented in terms of game messages upon entering the raid, mimicing the exact messages provided by Runelite, and the same level of uncertainty, as it cannot always detect all the rooms within the raid.

Upon disconnection, the game will now kick you out of the game once 15 seconds have passed, unless you're within Wilderness. The delay was previously at 60 seconds, making death by disconnections a much likely cause.
