Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do ya?! If yes, you’re in for a treat this week, because Balthazar’s Big Raffle is back! Plus, it’s the fourth week of Summer Escape and we’ve got another bumper lot of patch notes for you to read. Go ahead – make our day.
Balthazar Beauregard and his spectacular circus have had a dip in funds this year, so once again they’re hosting a raffle!
Find Balthazar in Burthorpe to receive a free ticket every day. Earn more free tickets by completing a daily challenge and tracking down Gilly Willikers, the travelling clown.
This year a shiny new prize is on offer: the Golden version of Linza the Disgraced’s Barrows equipment! Plus, each ticket will also give you a chance to win prizes from the previous years, including:
But remember – you’ve got to be in it to win it! If you miss a day (or several!) you’ll be able to trade Balthazar a bond, and he’ll hand over all the tickets you’ve missed so far – and as a bonus, he’ll also hold on to any tickets you might miss in future.
Balthazar’s Big Raffle will be available in-game from September 1st to September 30th.

As you’re travelling around a real-life slice of the island you can look forward to hands-on time with new content, talks and meetups with the JMods, loads of panels, a dedicated LAN area, an art area for meeting the creative teams and of course some very big surprise announcements on the main stage. We’re also bringing back skill chips!
If you’re in need of tips and suggestions on everything from travel to accommodation, you can also join our dedicated Discord channel, head to the official RuneFest forum or the community-owned Facebook Group.
Kerapac the Dragonkin will be coming alive at RuneFest 2019! We’re happy to announce that we’re partnered with WillowCreative who’s crafting an amazing cosplay of Kerapac – that she’ll unveil in full at RuneFest! Here are some words from her to mark the first step of this collaboration: “Very excited to be portraying an actual dragon soon and I can’t wait to show you what else I've planned for him. Here you see a new animatronic wingframe and the aluminum stilts I already developed for a previous cosplay and Kerapac (the main reason why I wanted to build durable and multifunctional frames)”.
You can follow progress on her Kerapac cosplay on her Instagram profile, we’ll also highlight each step of the build in our following news posts until RuneFest (Oct 4th & 5th).
Our Facebook fans can now enjoy a whole new RuneScape experience: the RS Companion!

Talk with the RuneScape Companion
The RuneScape Companion is still young and we want to make it the best experience possible with your help. How? Simple, interact with it. The more you have fun (or find bugs in the matrix), the more it will learn!
We’ve been working on some super-secret projects here at Jagex HQ, and we’d like your feedback on it. In short, help us build the future of RuneScape! We will be hosting a workshop day soon and we need players to take part in it. You can apply here!
Our live streams are always a great opportunity to grab some awesome in-game prizes. And as our first adventurers set foot on Land Out of Time (or as we call it “LOoT”), we thought you’d like an update of the LootScape. Ok, roll the drums and behold… our LOoTScape!
This month, each and every RuneScape stream watched will give you a random drop from one of the following:
Basic Drop Table: Prismatic small fallen star, Prismatic medium fallen star, Prismatic small lamp, Prismatic medium lamp, Spirit Ruby, Spirit Diamond, Advanced Pulse Core, Spring, Silverhawk down, Medium DG Token Box, Small DG Token Box, Uncut Dragonstone, Large Cash Bag, Medium Cash Bag or Small Cash Bag.
Exciting isn’t it?! So don’t wait up - connect your RS account to your Twitch account and find out more here. Once that’s done, have fun and watch our streams during the day for a guaranteed drop.
