What to try out in RuneScape Weapon Diversity Beta?
During the Weapon Diversity Beta, you will be able to try 16 different weapon changes and their new effects:

Spear – All bleed effects last 50% longer, applying to Slaughter, Blood Tendrils and Dismember.
Scimitar – While wielding a scimitar in the mainhand slot, there will be 5% of damage given applied as a DoT, lasting for 7.2 seconds. The DoT is increased to 10% while dual-wielding scimitars.
2h Sword – 5% of the critical hit will be applied immediately as an instant heal to the player.
Mace – 200% of the entire equipped prayer bonus is added to strength bonus while wielding a mace. This effect will stack to 300% while dual-wielding maces.
Maul – +5 tiers of damage but -5 tiers of accuracy.
Shortbow – Shortbow RuneScape actually deals 6% more damage, but there is -1% damage for each tile distance between the player and his target.
Shieldbow – Defence abilities cost 20% less adrenaline.
1h Crossbow – There is a 2% chance whilst using a basic ability to use the same basic ability at the same time.
2h Crossbow – A 5% accuracy buff is offered without a timer after standing still for at least 3s.
Throwing knives – There are minus 5 levels in weapon damage and accuracy. The global cooldown is 1.2s rather than 1.8.
Throwing axes – With throwing axes, players can gain 4% adrenaline with the main-hand weapon and 2% with the offhand weapon.
Air spells – With an air spell selected, every hit will increase the armour by 1%.
Fire spells – While using any fire spell, there is a small chance to activate an extra Combust ability.
Water spells – A small globule of water will be left behind when dealing the killing blow with a water spell.
