The Beach Is Here! - This Week In RuneScape

The Beach is back! Kick back with fellow 'Scapers as you get some summary XP Gains in. Or, you know, spend all day in the Dungeoneering Hole. You do you.

The Beach
Suns out, guns out

Summerís here and The Beach is back!

Lumbridge Crater has been transformed into a seasonal oasis where you can train your skills or just take it easy and soak up the summer holiday vibes. You've always got a chance of finding some extra rewards while skilling at The Beach, and this year we've got a couple of new additions - the Skeleton Warrior Conjure Override and a new Casual Beachwear outfit! Nothing says summer like a makeover for you and your best skelly friends! You can also pick up both rewards directly from Flo's Shop for 150 Runecoins each.

Speaking of drops, we'd like to introduce you to someone new...

Yep, this is what you think it is - this is Clawdie, the long-awaited Boss Pet drop from Clawdia!

Alongside a few new rewards, we've also packed a load of Quality of Life improvements into this year's Beach, including longer AFK timers for some activities and the ability to get Skilling Pet drops while training here. Don't miss the full Patch Notes below to see all the changes we've brought to the sandy shore this year!

The Beach is open from now until July 22nd - don't forget your sunscreen!

Developer discussions, Livestreams and more!

June 26th: J-Mod Stream - RuneSkill and Chill: Introducing Mod Yuey!
