Get to grips with the Zodiac event and seek out its treasures. Following last year’s popular Death Lotus Training, this in-game activity is based around the animals of the zodiac. Some really cool rewards are up for grabs, so get involved! Inventors can also rock that lab-coat look this week by discovering a couple of Devices that can each be used to create a snazzy Invention-themed cosmetic.
From 4th February until 9th February, take on the Zodiac Training event by completing a variety of tasks and challenges. This year it’ll mainly take your Skilling and Minigames prowess to complete. Simply open Treasure Hunter during the promo and you’ll receive a card that can be clicked to begin the Zodiac Training.
Once you have completed a row or column, you will be rewarded with monkey trinkets, cash bags or XP. Complete the entire scroll and you will unlock the coveted dragon zodiac costume. As with last year’s event, you can complete the list multiple times for different vibrant colours.
Win Envelopes on Treasure Hunter to instantly finish tasks, and be sure to be on the lookout for the Wounded Snake Icxan roaming Gielinor.
Ironman players can enter the Zodiac event by retrieving their card from Diango. Not all tasks can be completed by Ironmen, but they can be bypassed by using Envelopes which you can get from finding Icxan.
Invention Cosmetics | Can you discover them?
Show off your progress in Invention by discovering a couple of neat Invention cosmetics that have just been added to Gielinor. Proverbial lightbulbs will be going off across every head in the land as you take to your workbenches and try to figure out the ways to make the following:
- Lightbulb Hat
- “Professor” title
- Portable Spellbook/Prayerbook Switcher (Dwarven tech-branch)
- Invention Skillcape.
- Retro Invention Skillcape.
A hint, you say? Oh, go on then! The Labcoat might need a fine cloth or two to put together. Most Professors are pretty old, right? Around 95, I suppose? That’s all you’re getting for now, get cracking!
As mentioned in last week’s BTS, Invention will soon be turning its attention to skilling. So keep an eye out for further updates and improvements.

In other news…
The 15th Anniversary party has come to a close. The garden remains with the statues collected by the player. Players may still find portals across the game world to unlock the various statues. Lanterns on the trees and the 15th anniversary logo on the lodestones are also remaining in game too.
