This Week In RuneScape: Het's Oasis

This Week In RuneScape: Het's Oasis

Happy new year ‘Scapers! It may still be cold and dark outside, but the arrival of 2022 means a fresh start and a brighter outlook. What better way to celebrate than by helping transform the old Duel Arena into the brand-dazzling-new Het’s Oasis?

Het's Oasis
The Duel Arena's transformation begins!

An earthquake has destroyed the Duel Arena. Icthlarin is down amidst the ruins, sent there by Seren to fetch a powerful object that could help them in Senntisten. Now he needs your help to explore the foreboding edifice of Het's Tomb. What ancient secrets lie within?

This thrilling new miniquest is just one of the delights that await you in our brand-new skilling hub, Het’s Oasis!

Starting from today, we’re inviting you to take part in Oasis Restoration, a two-week temporary event where YOUR activity brings the new area to life! Skill and earn individual and community rewards, including cosmetics and drop rate enhancers for the Elder God Wars Dungeon, and help transform the former Duel Arena ruins into a plentiful desert paradise.

The restoration event is temporary, but Het’s Oasis is a permanent new area for Gielinor, offering a continuation of the Elder God Wars saga and lots of fun activities to boost your XP and earn rewards.

Visit from today and take part in the new permanent mini-quest (Eye of Het I) and three new skilling methods: an Agility course, Hunter method and Farming method (with new rewards for each)! You’ll find the Oasis just east of Lumbridge and north of Al Kharid.

Golden Party Hat Hunt
Make your Phats before it's too late!

The Golden Party Hat Hunt is officially over! No more shards can be earned at this point, apart from the Yak Track and Premier Club shards, which can be gained up until January 17th. If you've managed to grab eight of ‘em by now, you'll be ready to make your Golden Party Hat!

You must craft your hat by January 17th – after that your shards will dissolve forever! Talk to the Wise Old Man now and he’ll help you turn all your hard work into the most resplendent headgear in all of Gielinor.

  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from progressing the Darkness of Hallowvale quest.
  • Fixed an issue where some players would not be able to receive Daily Challenges.
