It is time. The skies darken, and Sliske's Endgame is finally here. Who will survive the epic final battle, and who will claim the ultimate prize? There's only one way to find out.
When you're not feeling your way through the Shadow Realm, there's more Christmas mystery unfurling in Part 2 of Frostworld – the latest holiday quest.
You are invited to the battle to end all battles - the final clash between those on Sliske's Scoreboard. Set in a shadowy labyrinth, with the devious Mahjarrat himself pulling the strings, anything could happen.
But one thing is for certain - your actions will have a direct effect on the outcome, and will be reflected in future content. Choose wisely!
Sliske's Endgame is a true Grandmaster quest, with the highest requirements of any released so far. There'll be some appropriately epic rewards:
- A hefty chunk of XP.
- A ring that boosts your gathering stats.
- A necklace that stops your familiar from draining summoning points over time. Points are still used when summoning from a pouch.
- Three off-hand items with different effects. These can be combined into a single item. Their effects are:
- Chance to stop your runecrafting pouch from degrading. This stacks with the effect of Rune Ethereal outfits.
- Resets box, tortle, imp, bird traps and marasamaw plants on failure to trap prey.
- Allows the harvesting of shadow herbs from dead patches, which can be cleaned for Herblore XP.
DO YOU ACCEPT SLISKE'S CHALLENGE?
Even if you don't meet the requirements, there's never been a better time to start the Sliske questline. Kick off with Missing, Presumed Death, just north-east of Varrock, and get ready for a jaunt into Gielinor's darkest shadows.
