Cookbook And Progression Wrapup Update - This Week In RuneScape
Active Events
Blooming Burrow - Active until April 8th.
Check out the Community Egg Hunt that became available on Sunday

An update on your player wrap-ups, and a sneak peek at the RuneScape Official Cookbook!

Winter / 2023 summaries
A new schedule for your wrap-ups!

Back at the end of January we announced that you would all receive an end of year review wrap-up for 2023, detailing your achievements for the year. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, however, we had to push the go-live date back. With the extra time the team identified a much cleaner solution that would allow you to track your progress more regularly!

Now, players will get wrap-ups on their progress in four quarterly updates – as well as the end of year wrap-up! The first of your wrap-ups will be ready at the end of this month and will be sent out to any players who have opted into receiving our newsletter. You will also be able to grab your 2023 wrap-up at the same time!

We're looking forward to seeing everyone's progress!

RuneScape Official Cookbook
New Exclusive Chef's Outfit

Last year we announced that Runescape had partnered with Insight Editions on an official RuneScape cookbook. Well, aprons on folks, it's finally here – and ready for pre-order! The book will be published on April 16th, but we've got a sneak peek at the cover and some familiar recipes...

Not only is the book packed with real, tried-and-tested recipes for some of your Gielinor favourites, each physical copy of the Cookbook also contains a code to unlock the brand new Chef's Outfit in-game!

Bon appétit! Pre-order your cookbook here

Note: The Chef's Outfit will not be available to unlock until April 16th when the cookbook is officially launched. Unlock code works once - one code per purchase of a Physical Copy of the Official RuneScape Cookbook.

Starts March 28th | Ends April 3rd | Egg Hunt

Hunt for adorable Easter Eggs to win egg-citing rewards! This year you can get your hands on the Power Flower Basket, a main-hand basket that when equipped will really put a spring in your step with its unique walk animation and that's not all: once per day you can use up a charge to pick a special flower from the Power Flower basket and receive a collection of farming items. Peep the Chick makes a return too, both of these rewards are won from Ultra-Rare prize tier.

You can also find the new Flower Farmer Dungarees, complete with a spade mainhand, backpack and 2 different hats as you complete egg hunts by opening up bonus eggs! You can also earn the Yolk Breaker outfit after you unlock the Flower Farmer Dungarees.

If you're looking for another outfit check out the oddment store to pick up the Egg Smasher Outfit between March 27th and April 2nd.


Q: What items can I get from the Power Flower Basket?

A: Each day you can pick a flower from the basket and get either a random selection of seeds or honeycombs, or 500 of each type of mush.

Q: Is the Power Flower Basket tradeable?

A: When you first obtain the Flower Power Basket from the promotion it will be inactive and tradeable, but once activated it's no longer tradeable.

Q: Is the walk animation separate from the basket?

A: The walk animation is only active while carrying the basket in your main hand. It is not keepsakeable.
