Try the new Loot interface and filtered, AoE looting – fresh from the RuneScape Beta!

Read more

 
Improved Looting is here – another update fuelled by your feedback from the RuneScape Beta.
With a single click, bring up the new, customisable loot window and grab everything in the surrounding area that meets your criteria.
This has the potential to significantly change how you play, so we've given you the option to use old-style looting, if you prefer.
Read on for more information!
How to Use Improved Looting

The improved looting mechanics are switched on by default, and you can customise them through the Game Settings interface. If you'd rather stick to the old loot mechanics, this is also where you can toggle them off.
Simply left-click a piece of loot and the new looting interface will open. It will gather and display all loot that you're eligible to pick up. Then, you can click individual items to transfer them to your backpack, or click 'Loot All' to grab everything.
To customise the Loot interface, first go to the Game Settings interface, then click the new 'Loot Options' button.
This enables you to toggle the loot interface entirely (default on), toggle area looting (default off) and toggle right-click activation of the Loot interface (default off).
This is also where you can set up custom loot criteria. This lets you set a minimum coin value and various categories - 'herblore items,' 'prayer items,' etc. – which can be ticked in any combination you wish. Selecting any of these will add a 'Loot Custom' button to the Loot interface, which will pick up any items which meet the criteria you've set.
Note that the Loot interface cannot be used in most minigames, and that area looting requires line of sight to the item in question.
Also, certain items – such as those specifically related to quests – cannot be picked up through the Loot interface. You can pick up any such items in the old way by right-clicking them, as long as right-click activation is turned off.
Enjoy!

This comes fresh from the RuneScape Beta, and is another example of the quality-of-life improvements we can make with your help. Let us know what you think!

So they release the interface, the major update for the week, and it doesn't work to the point that they have to disable a key feature of it. Not to be too harsh, but that seems like kind of a fail to me.

That's the even sadder thing. I believe it was. Too bad the beta was members only, or maybe I would have been more eager to test it out! <_<

This is such a good idea but done so poorly! The loot settings are way too vague! It says "loot herblore items", but you cannot choose which items. I don't want it looting guams, should be able to choose specific which herbs or 2ndary ingreds to pick up. Or "loot weapons and armor", also, stupid. I want it to pick up rune med helms and scimitars but I don't want steel hatchets. Absolutely this update has great potential, in theory it is a beautiful idea, however, the way it was implemented was awful!

Seems useful, but if you only need to pick up one drop it's a waste of time.
