News post: The return of Parcels from the Hedge

Halloween approaches, and with it comes a visit from your friendly neighbourhood skull, Postie Pete!

It’s been a while since I’ve written my very own newspost! I’ve got a fair few bulletins to deliver today. Double daily keys, a RuneScape Mobile Update… and golly, what’s this? The return of… Parcels from the Hedge? Oh, that’s me! Cripes, I’m supposed to be in Burthorpe!

Yours hastily,

Postie Pete

Parcels from the Hedge

Yes, you heard that right! Postie Pete is returning for an extra spooky, extra-skeletal round of Parcels from the Hedge. Just as before, he’ll be delivering parcels and fanmail straight to your backpack for 30 days after you log in from October 28th to November 22nd. Open the parcels to receive a gift from your favourite characters all over Gielinor. You might also find parcels while you’re busy training your skills.

The bigger the parcel, the better the gift! Here are some of the extra-special treats you could find:

  • Parcel Loot Beam
  • Sack of Huge Parcels
  • Sack of Lost Property
  • Huge Delivery Parcel
  • Large Delivery Parcel
  • Medium Delivery Parcel
  • Small Delivery Parcel
  • For every parcel or piece of fan mail you open you’ll receive a Postage Stamp, which you can exchange for goodies in Postie Pete’s Post Office. This time, we’ve added the following items to his collection:

  • Ring of the Blighted (Shadow)
  • Ring of the Wretched (Shadow)
  • Ring of the Infested (Shadow)
  • Ring of the Tainted (Shadow)
  • Ring of the Corrupted (Shadow)
  • Ring of the Defiled (Shadow)
  • As always, you’ll be able to claim Lost Property from Postie Pete after receiving 5, 10, 15 and 20 daily parcels. Lost Property contains a variety of items, including deathtouched darts, Invention components, and the coveted Postie title.

    RuneScape Mobile Early Access

    It’s here at last! From Tuesday October 29th all RuneScape members with a compatible Android device will be able to download and play RuneScape Mobile for the first time. Exciting stuff, huh?

    You’ll need to be running Android version 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher in order to play RuneScape Mobile Early Access – and of course, you’ll need to be a member. iOS support will be coming next year, so sit tight, Appleites!

    Everyone who logs in during RuneScape Mobile Early Access will receive their very own Founder’s Pack, which includes the adorably glam Steel Panther pet, a unique mobile-themed rest animation and the dazzling Radiant Dawn Armour. Don’t worry, iOS owners – you’ll also be rewarded when your turn comes.
