  4. Livestreams this week
  5. Pink Skirt Events

‘Bonanza’ is a word you just don’t hear enough. It’s fantastic. Really rolls off the tongue. Its actual meaning is more tied to wealth than its modern use perhaps suggests, having originated from surprise ore discoveries when mining (which is somewhat fitting). It’s also the name of nine US towns, a 1999 album from reggae artist Michael Rose and an old American western TV series!

However, undoubtedly its most fitting use to date is to describe the wealth of Achievement-related riches that arrive in RuneScape today. A bonanza indeed! An Achievement Bonanza, one might say.

Achievement Bonanza

Things are about to heat up on the RuneScore HiScore tables.

A while back, we asked you for your ideas for achievements you’d like to see in the game. We were hoping to put together 100 or so, but we’ve actually ended up with over 130, spread across a wide assortment of skills. Well over half of these are based off your suggestions, so thanks ever so much to everyone who helped deluge us with so many wonderful ideas.

The Achievements range from the tough to the ridiculous. A few examples include:

  • ‘Handles for forks’ – Attempt to buy four candles
  • ‘Cops and robbers’ – Unlock all perks in heist
  • ‘Life saver’ – Be saved 50 times by the sign of life effect
  • ‘You wanna pizza me?’ – Sample all of the listed pizzas
  • The new achievements are visible from the achievement tab. Enjoy!
