This Week In RuneScape: The TzekHaar Front

Feeling the chill of the season? Descend into the fiery underbelly of Senntisten for the final front of the Elder God Wars Dungeon and you’ll warm up in no time – read on to find out more! We’ve also got Halloween goodies galore as we unveil the Grim Harvest: a Treasure Hunter bonanza with bite. Plus, don’t miss our page preview of the 20th Anniversary book and a special bumper edition of Community News!

The TzekHaar Front
Into the fiery depths…

We’re deep in the heart of Senntisten for the final front of the Elder God Wars, and things are really hotting up now. You’ll have to fight wave after wave of Ful’s most fearsome minions, culminating in a mano-a-mano face-off with the Fight Kiln champion, TzKal-Zuk. It’s Gielinor’s greatest warriors in a decisive final battle for the fate of the world!

Some of you may be familiar with Zuk, who has previously appeared in Old School RuneScape. He’ll offer you a series of challenges, before stepping into the arena himself to crush you with his own hands – and his awesome lava sword!

It’s a tough fight – with the very real possibility of getting utterly flame-grilled – but if you succeed, you’ll bag some seriously mighty rewards. And if that’s not enough for you, there’s always Hard Mode… oh, and isn't it Free Death Week this week? Oh yes it is!

Want an additional challenge on top of all that? Well you're in luck because with the release of the TzekHaar Front comes an all-new challenge: the TzekHaar Front World’s First Race! Be the first player to complete the front on Hard Mode in a flawless run to be crowned the champion and win a special prize!

To learn more about this climactic encounter and the scorching rewards on offer, check out last week's detailed newspost!
