Witch's House - Free to Play & Makeover

A classic quest goes free to play, and a well-known house gets a sympathetic refurb in today's update. Plus, don't forget that Double XP is coming up this Friday!

Witch's House | Free to Play & Makeover

Witch's House ľ one of RuneScape's most time-honoured quests ľ is now free to play, opening it up to those of you who've never had a chance to try it out.

We've also given the house a fresh lick of paint, fixed some bugs, and made the whole quest a smoother experience overall. There's never been a better time to help that little lad get his ball back.

Along with its new layer of modern sheen, we've made every effort to retain the look and feel of the Witch's House you know so well. Even if you completed the quest long ago, why not take a peek and tell us what you think?

Patch Notes

There are plenty of patch notes to pore over this week, too, with the Ninjas taking some soft, stealthy steps to improve your inventory wrangling.

For all you completionists out there, please note that the 3-month Menaphos amnesty period has now ende. You will now need to complete the relevant Menaphos achievements to be able to wear your Completionist or Master quest capes once again. Head to the recently updated Achievements interface to find out what you need to do to reequip your capes.

See the patch notes for further details of today's update.


Have fun racking up those double XP gains. We'll see you in game!
