It's DXP, FSW and TTT this week – Acronyms FTW! (Well, technically they're initialisms). Uhh anyway… on with the newspost…
Double XP LIVE
Continuing in the main game until the 21st
We hope you’ve been making the most of Double XP LIVE! Don’t worry if you’ve not started yet, because it’s still active until Monday, November 21st at 12:00 PM Game Time.
You’ve got 48 hours of Double XP which you can use to train any skill, and pause whenever you like. You can also trade an hour of that Double XP per day for credits to use with Nic The Trader!
As a reminder, this event is for the main game only and NOT Fresh Start Worlds, though if you're playing there, this week has a beast of an XP bonus – more on that further down.
Time to Train Returns
Two new training dummies and convertible Proteans!
Treasure Hunter's Double XP companion event returns, and with some very exciting new features!
Firstly, we’re releasing two new training dummies for Dungeoneering and Archaeology. We've also introduced a new progress mechanic which guarantees dummies every 10 Keys!
Next up, Proteans: following their introduction earlier this year, the new Herblore, Runecrafting and Cooking Proteans can now be selected in Protean Packs, found in the promotion and even converted from other Proteans! You can do this from today's update - so before Time To Train starts Thursday.
Time to Train will be available from Thursday, November 17th.
New cosmetics and plenty of benefits!
Premier Membership is the very best way to enjoy RuneScape! You'll be able to experience everything Gielinor has to offer – now and over the next 12 months – at a hefty 45% discount compared to subscribing monthly.
All of the usual benefits you've come to expect are there, from 100 extra Bank Spaces to Vault Access, the Premier Artifact and more.
Of course, with a new year of Premier Club comes new cosmetics – and this year it's the Demon Hunter Armour Cosmetic Set and the Stalker Pet!
Existing 12-Month Premier Memberships will renew into this year's Premier Membership, and you'll keep your current rate too. For full details and pricing for new Memberships, head here.
Fresh Start Worlds Week 8
Maximum 2.5XP for ONE WEEK ONLY!
It’s the last push to the finish line for Competitive players of Fresh Start Worlds. The top 100 are gonna get their Golden Challenger Halos – could you be one of them?
Speaking of the Golden Challenger Halo - based on player feedback, we have decided the Top 100 Overall leaderboard will also be included in those eligible for a Golden Challenger Halo. If you've been looking to show your prowess as master of all vs specific skills, this is your chance to get something special for your efforts.
As if that weren’t momentous enough, we're also hitting peak XP bonuses this week, with 2.5XP on all skills for ONE WEEK ONLY! This will be the highest XP rate you'll see as they'll begin to slow down back to the usual rate for the final eight weeks of the event. If there was ever a week to push for those gains, this is it.
Here's this week's bonuses in full:
- NEW: +150% XP (skills below level 70).
- NEW: +150% XP (skills above level 70).
- Continuation of Free Deaths.
- 20% chance to double a monster or boss drop.
- NEW: 40% chance to double gathered materials.
