Treasure Trails & Double XP Weekend
X marks the spot! Clue Scrolls have always been popular with RuneScape’s many super sleuths, and we’re pleased to this week confirm a few changes that will make your Treasure Trails experience a little smoother. Also incoming are yet more improvements to Mining and Smithing, details about Gameblast 2019, an umbral chest promo, some fantastic new merch and (as if you need reminding) Double XP Weekend!
TREASURE TRAILS IMPROVEMENTS
If you’re a RuneScape member and have not yet got involved with the Treasure Trails fun, this is the perfect time to do so. Keep an eye out for the clue scrolls that are dropped by monsters, found in chests, obtained from various skills or even pickpocketed from H.A.M. members.
Today, almost a year after the big Treasure Trails update, we're revisiting Treasure Trails and making a few improvements. Those looking to learn more about Treasure Trails – and keep tabs on their own clue solving performance – can learn more by seeking out Zaida and her pet yak Nigel. She can be found south west of the Grand Exchange’s southern gate.
Here’s a look at some of the changes we’ve made to Clue Scrolls:
MINING AND SMITHING
It’s been known for RuneScape and Old School to exchange the odd scowl, and to perhaps hurl the occasional sandwich across the playground at one another. But such is the power of Gameblast that both eras of RuneScape are joining forces!
Gameblast 2019 takes place this weekend (February 22nd-24th) and streamers from both the RuneScape and Old School camps are joining forces to raise money for the incredibly wonderful charity Special Effect. We’re sure you know all about the very important work Special Effect does, but if you don’t you can read more here.
You can donate to United Communities of RuneScape GameBlast19 here. That’s also the page to find out more info about very exciting RuneScape Gameblast eBay auctions, and on all the details on how to get involved with the RuneScape activities.
And if you want to go that extra mile then it’s not too late to sign up yourself. GameBlast is the perfect way to have fun AND raise money to level the playing field for people with physical disabilities. It’s an event that genuinely changes lives, and we’re so very proud of the massive contribution the RuneScape community has made in the past.
DOUBLE XP WEEKEND
And as if the stars have aligned in recognition, Gameblast 2019 also coincides with Double XP Weekend. Why not enjoy a fantastic XP boost while you raise money and help change lives? In the words of Blackadder, it’s a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.
Double XP Weekend runs from Friday 22nd February 12:00 Game Time to Monday 25th February 11:59 Game Time. You can read more about it in the February Month Ahead .
From today (February 18th) until March 10th, anyone who buys the 450 Treasure Hunter key package will also get a free Umbral Chest. Each chest contains a guaranteed purple prize. Furthermore, the offer is unlimited, so feel free to take advantage as many times as you like!
This is a reminder that Premier Club 2018 chests will be removed on February 25th, so if you’ve not yet claimed yours then act now to make sure you don’t miss out!
In addition, after a whole month of extended availability, Premier Club 2019 Gold membership will be unavailable to purchase from Sunday 3rd March, 23:59 Game Time. Which leaves only a few days to seize the opportunity of our best value RuneScape membership offer: become a Premier Club 2019 Gold member!
In celebration of the one year anniversary of the RuneScape Angels Scapes range, we’re delighted to reveal a new Limited Edition Pink Max Cape Keyring! That’s just one of a few new lines heading to the RuneScape store, such as the new Slayer Necklace and Plagues End Mug.
All of the new items arrive on February 22nd, so make sure to set a reminder to visit the site.
Our live streams are always a great opportunity to grab some awesome in-game prizes. Each and every stream watched will give you a guaranteed random drop from one of the following: Prismatic small fallen star, Prismatic medium fallen star, Prismatic small lamp, Prismatic medium lamp, Spirit Ruby, Spirit Diamond, Advanced Pulse Core, Spring, Silverhawk down, Medium DG Token Box, Small DG Token Box, Uncut Dragonstone, Large Cash Bag, Medium Cash Bag or Small Cash Bag.
