Winter may be coming, but we're getting into a growth mindset with the new Garden of Kharid - and with superb timing, Double XP LIVE returns this Friday!
The Garden of Kharid
Bountiful delights, powerful upgrades and QoL improvements!
The Elder Gods have been defeated, and Gielinor can finally heal. Now a strange garden has popped up – in Kharid, of all places! The druids Polletix and Sydekix want you to investigate.
Visit the garden North of Al-Kharid to access a new herb patch, as well as a whole suite of rewards that optimise your Farming experience and yields!
Farm across Gielinor, earn currency and use it to unlock powerful upgrades, including the all-new Plant Power which lets you plant multiple seeds in one patch! Plus, get your hands on Supreme Growth Potions to have those crops springing up almost instantly!
You'll also find new Thieving targets and items that optimise your Runecrafting.
In the spirit of change and #growth, we've also made some major quality of life updates to Farming – Diseased Farming Patches no longer kill your crops, Compost Bins are more efficient and Nightshade Patches grant a minimum of three produce every time!
Head to the area North of Al-Kharid and talk to Polletix and Sydekix to get started. You’ll need 50 Farming to dig in.

Miniquest Series: Civil War
Part III is here
Today’s update sees the continuation of the two miniquests that were released with the Wilderness Flash Events. Together, these three stories bridge the gap between Daughter of Chaos and our final major quest of the year. Dive in and explore the ongoing Zamorakian activities emerging as civil war ravages the Wilderness!
How To Play
The Civil War miniquest series is available to all members who have completed Daughter of Chaos and have 50 Farming.
To start part three, travel to the Wilderness and speak to Anne Dimitri.
Double XP LIVE
Coming to the main game on Friday!
Double XP LIVE returns this Friday November 11th until Monday November 21st, starting and ending at 12:00 PM Game Time. The perfect moment to get on some Farming with Garden of Kharid? Maybe!
DXP LIVE is a 10-day event where you have 48 Hours of Double XP to use at your leisure. You can even pause the timer if you need to do other activities and don't want to lose precious DXP time! If you won't be using all your time, you can also trade an hour of DXP per day for credits to use with Nic The Trader.
This event is for the main game and NOT for Fresh Start Worlds – though there's some sweet XP boosts going on over there too, so let’s take a look at those in the next section!

German Worlds impacted 5 this Tuesday
All German Worlds will be offline this Tuesday for us to perform necessary maintenance that will keep our services running optimally.
The Worlds are expected to be offline for approximately five hours beginning at 10:50 Game Time on Tuesday. A maintenance post will appear on RuneScape.com while this work is active so you can track if the Worlds are still down. The post will disappear when the Worlds have returned.
