15-Mar-10 Lumbridge Catacombs & The Blood Pact

Recommended Posts

Some adventurers never retire, but, as they get older, they learn the value of teamwork. Veteran adventurer Xenia has seen some Zamorakian cultists take a prisoner into the catacombs beneath Lumbridge Church, but she wants another adventurer to join her before she heads in after them. Xenia was there when the catacombs were built, so she knows something about the dark secrets that they contain. If the cultists have discovered those same secrets, then their prisoner will be only the first of many victims. It's up to you to stop them.

 

The Blood Pact is the first free-to-play quest we’ve released in many years, not counting the tutorial and seasonal events. It's meant as a suitable first adventure for a brand new character. Completing the quest will reward you with a set of weapons and access to the Lumbridge Catacombs – a dungeon that’s also designed for low-level characters, full of new monsters to fight, which drop the collectable parts of a new costume item.

In other news...

 

With the release of The Blood Pact, there are now 300 Quest Points available in the game. If you have the full 300 points, make sure you speak to Xenia again after completing The Blood Pact, as she has a special reward to help you show off your dedication to quests. Unlike the Quest Cape, the new item's requirements will stay fixed at 300 Quest Points even after new quests are released – once you can wear it, you can wear it forever.

 

Weapons with a high-enough slash attack can now cut through webs. These are items such as the whip, Dharok's axe, the dragon 2h and battleaxe, godswords, Guthan's spear and the staff of light.

I kinda 2nd this, but I am terrified of how religiously you follow it and how quick you seem to be...... I think you may need to take a lie down Toad.

 

Anyways, The Blood Pact sounds good. I wonder what the reward is for those 300 QPers.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Fair enough I suppose, they haven't released a F2P update in a while. Though I don't know about anyone else but I'm really, really craving some more challenging quests after Nomad. I want MOAR. NAO. Especially after they plopped that big ol' castle down in east wild.

That's it for this week? A low level dungeon and a low level F2P quest? :mellow:

 

I wonder if the 300QP item will be any good.

I'll tell you once I do the quest. :) Shouldn't take too long as the update is aimed at lower level players. At least that's what it seems.

I am 1 fight with Nomad (and well, this 10 minute quest) away from that item. So ;) I don't care if it is good or not! I want it

The quest is kinda neat since it is both F2P and the 300th quest reward.

 

Has anyone looked up the quest guide for this on KB and looked at the pic? It screams Greek/Spartanian to me. :o

If you read it said it provides f2p starters with armour and weapons to go through the dungeon ;)

Was hoping for a little more but atleast it keeps the f2pers quiet for a while (well part from the forums now they have expanded to more of them :wall:).

 

But next week might be interesting, since all the updates relating to that new castle/strange power area have happened on the 22nd of each month.

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.
