There's a Meteor Storm coming, offering up to 100% extra XP compared to standard lamps and stars.

From 00:00 UTC on 14th June until 23:59 UTC on 19th June, pick up meteorites and space dust on Treasure Hunter, which replace standard lamps and stars.

These offer 33% more XP or Bonus XP than standard stars or lamps. Better yet, if you use them on one of your lowest five skills, the XP boost shoots up to 100%!

Your five skills eligible for the 100% boost will be highlighted in the interface. Note that if one or more of your five lowest skills is 99 and your Dungeoneering, Invention and/or Slayer are between 99 and 120, the skill(s) with the 120 cap will be eligible for the boost, except in certain rare cases where your higher-capped skills are of the same level.

What is Treasure Hunter?


Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.

Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.

Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.

If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.

Oh look. More 6 day promotions and more blatant XP selling.

STOP IT before you chase away the last few loyal customers you have to Oldschool. Or just away.


These types of promos are going to be the business model for any kind of online games company now a days, unfortunately.

While not popular in principal, these keeps the game we love alive and allows them to have bigger budgets for future content. I can understand the frustration people have with it, but ultimately, it hasn't changed the way I play very much. A very small number of players will actually buy 100s of keys for these types of promos, and the gains they get from it (if they were to convert to exp with Vic), isn't quite that much at the end of the day.

I strongly disagree.
As old school as a player can be.

What funded the game in years before eoc?

Sure wasn't bonds and Sure wasn't keys.

Runescape is a simple browser game. It's not huge platform like other MMORGS. It doesn't cost that much to keep running.

Micro transactions are simply... For stock holders/marketshares.
