One of the biggest quests we have ever made, a new prayer potion, new loyalty rewards and a Bonus XP Weekend all join together to make a stupendous line-up for September. Talking of history, we’re even opening up RuneScape Classic for the last ever time!

New Prayer Potion

We’re adding a brand-new, tradable potion to the game this month, featuring the elusive fellstalk herb and morchella mushroom; so rare and desirable that the herbs themselves are only available from high-level farmers. You’ll need 94 Herblore and 91 Farming if you’re going to grow and make this potion; a potion that can restore roughly 1.25x the prayer points of a super prayer potion, but gradually over the course of 5 minutes. You’ll still find your stash of super prayer potions useful next time you find yourselves needing the immediate aid of the gods, though, as they can provide an instant boost in the heat of battle.

Bonus XP Weekend

If you find yourself talking to your pet rock and wondering, “How on Gielinor am I going to raise my levels for all the high-level content that JAGEX keep launching?”, then wonder no more! This month we are holding our 4th “Bonus XP Weekend”, where members stand to earn up to 2.7x their normal XP rate in almost all the content in the game! It’s a perfect time to train your skills: whether it’s increasing your favourite stats; finally reaching that level goal you set yourself; or simply training those skills that you’ve let slip over the last few months, Bonus XP Weekend has something for everyone. Prices on the Grand Exchange can do crazy things over the days leading up to a Bonus XP Weekend, so it may well be a great time to throw those spare raw materials onto the market and make a quick stack of gold. For further details on the Bonus XP weekend, click here.

Final Classic Re-opening

Have you ever sat listening to the old and wizened seers in your clan councils or local fishing spot as they chew gummily on their stewed lobster and go on and on about the “good old days”, telling you stories of certs, sleeping bags and 3-hit combat? Do they look wistfully at areas just beyond the Paterdomus temple saying “I remember when all this was just sea”? Strange tales indeed, but there was a time when their ramblings were true! If you’re a member and you’re keen to find out more about the early days of RuneScape and the game that started it all off, then take a nostalgic trip to RuneScape Classic.

For the last time this month we are reopening the gates to our true roots and humble beginnings. RuneScape Classic is a very basic and old-school version of RuneScape, but does contain 50 of our original quests and the whole game as it was back in 2003. Don’t forget that if you’re keen to unlock the classic cape this will be your final ever opportunity to do this.

Ritual of the Mahjarrat

In RuneScape, you’ll hear people use the word “epic” quite often. “My godsword is epic”, or “I had the most epic fight in the Wildy”, or even, “My new iron helmet is the epitome of all that is epic”. Of course, “epic” is often in the eye of the beholder; it’s only epic if you haven’t done it before. Sometimes we have to wait for something truly epic to come along, and it has.

Concluding a storyline over 10 years old and involving many of the game’s major plotlines, the Ritual of the Mahjarrat is a huge, dimension-spanning quest; one of the largest we have ever created.

Every 500 years, the planets align and harsh choices must be made by the Mahjarrat; a race of powerful, ambitious beings left on Gielinor after the cruel God Wars, thousands of years ago. Their continued existence relies on an extreme form of rebirth; a new beginning that requires one of their number to be sacrificed for the greater good. Things rarely involve simple choices, however, with loyalties split between Zaros and Zamorak and individuals wielding some of the most powerful weapons to ever exist on RuneScape. Whatever the outcome, it will shape the future...forever.

Explore the lost plane of Kethsi; form unexpected alliances; engage in huge battles; and witness the true power of RuneScape’s cruellest villain.

Rewards include huge XP lamps, access to a new reward dungeon, equipment, a new spell, ranging gear, and new gear for the feet slot.

Requirements to start Ritual of the Mahjarrat:

* The Temple at Senntisten
* While Guthix Sleeps
* Hazeel Cult
* Enakhra's Lament
* The Slug Menace
* Fairy Tale III - Battle at Ork's Rift
* Rocking Out
* A Tail of Two Cats
* Level 76 Crafting
* Level 77 Agility
* Level 76 Mining

New Loyalty Rewards

This month we are also releasing the second batch of rewards for our loyalty programme, featuring 4 new costumes, 6 new emotes, 3 re-colours and 15 new auras (including tier 2 auras). These new rewards cover a range of new gameplay and cosmetic options, including:

* Fist Palm emote
* Ghost emote
* Ninja disappear emote
* Inspiration aura (raises your special attack bar while dealing damage)
* Vampyrism aura (raises life points while dealing damage)
* Penance aura (raises prayer points while dealing damage)

If you haven’t already, you can find details of how to sign up to the Loyalty Programme here.

Finally, remember that our 15% discount on 3 months of standard-rate credit card membership is still available. With all this great content on the horizon, now is a great time to subscribe. Click here to do so.

Have fun!

Mod Mark

ROTM is the only real content this month then but should be good by the sounds of it.

New Prayer potion won't make a huge difference but could be nice depending.
XP weekend is alright but no content.
Classic re-opening doesn't have an impact on me at all.
ROTM sounds awesome and I already have all the requirements so that's good too.
Loyalty Rewards sound interesting, especially those last few auras, will be interesting to see exactly what they're about, but again very little "content" with this update.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Um, excuse me, I need to go get a fresh pair of underwear. :oops:
I'm like a hot mess, but without the alcohol.

Hey! I just got 77 agility yesterday hoping I could explore Kethsi and see some teasers! As it turns out, my hunch was right, and it is one of the requirements for ROTM. Now I just need 2 more crafting levels...

This month seems pretty exciting, mostly because Ritual of the Mahjarrat is finally coming out!

I'm hoping that the requirements on ROTM are so few because of the previous ones imposed on the prerequisites.

ROTM:
- Mod Chris L had apart in the fighting I think, so it should be good from a combat perspective.
- Paul in the story (he developped the story from early days).

So it should be a nice collaberation.

Besides the highlight content this month I'm really disappointed, BXPW doesn't interest me in the slightest.. and new prayer potion, no thank you ;\

Maybe that's because Bonus Exp to you is about as useful as a second appendix? :smile:

I think it was her first real conent with her asl lead developer concept so she did very well but, if the next myreque quest involves edward cullen I think I will definitely have to quit RuneScape for good.

Chris L + Paul? Sounds like a winning combination.

Yeah, ROTM is just about the only thing I'm excited about this month.

-BXPW is nice, but it's more like "Labor Day" but instead of not laboring and having a nice weekend, you just labor harder.

-I really don't get why a new prayer potion gets its own spot on the BTS.

-RSC reopening is nice, but that game is kinda outdated. I played it when it was reopened last year, and haven't really played it since.

-Oh, and the loyalty rewards look interesting, but I'm sure we won't be able to amass enough points to try them all for a while now. But special attack regen based on damage dealt? Sounds ossum!

All in all I'd gladly trade in the rest of this month just for ROTM!
