In regards to the topic, we will be running more bonus XP weekends, however, no times or dates have been decided on yet.

That happened the minute the first weekend ended. Why do you think torstols are so much more expensive now than before the weekend was announced?

I wouldn't count on summoning being the same this time around, so I wouldn't stock up on swamp lizards.

I hope they never do another.

But it would figure another is in the pipe - I just charmed 92 to 93 & am bone dry. :oops:

I wouldn't mind, I'd have 99 sum banked and wouldn't have to get any more charms.

I meant myself personally, I know a lot of people have saved stuff in their banks since the end of the first one.

I got myself to 96 Summoning the last time around, not sure what I would do when they released the next one. Although cheaper herblore experience would be nice, I could see myself mining or hunting because I don't like those skills as much as the others. I wonder how they'll incorporate Dungeoneering into it as well?

I had quit playing RuneScape when the first weekend happened, so I am kind of looking forward to the next one, just so I can give it a try.

I purposely avoided the first weekend. I'm going to purposely avoid any and further bonus exp weekend. I just don't enjoy it.

Not that i am trying to start an argument or anything, but how do you not enjoy getting more xp for something you would do normally?

Depends if it is useful to me or not. I'm looking forward to another one though, just because it makes playing the game easier than it already is. :thumbsup:

I'd rather them not have another double xp weekend, but if they do it, I will participate.

I don't enjoy it either, although I'm not going to let the opportunity pass me by. When training a skill is strictly faster, it reduces the feeling of accomplishment at the end, which is the whole point of training skills. It just doesn't help.

Too bad i wasn't around for the first weekend, would have been a nice extra 3m summoning experiance over the charms that i reacently did.

All in all, because of the way extra experiance was distributed it largely favored 2 skills in farming and summoning with training any other skill being pointless. If they are to do another weekend like the one in march it really shouldn't give xp in those 2 skills or have a linear layout.

First to 99 Farming on 27. September, 2005.

First to 3766 Port Score on 20. March, 2014.

First to 4664 Port Score on 2. March, 2015.

Last I knew they were thinking of it, didn't know they were for sure now. This time I'll probably do summoning first like everyone else and their dog familiar, then perhaps try something like fishing rocktail. That or mining. I would like runecraft to be faster exp, but 10 hours isn't enough for me to want to train that instead on the bonus xp weekend.

I thought they were going to change buyable skills, or at least summoning?

TBH next one I'd probably train herblore, or else IDK what i'd train. Maybe get 99 FM?

I was just going to mention this. I believe Jagex has been soliciting ideas to modify bonus exp so that people don't just get absurd amounts of buyable exp?
