Edit: Updated news from 7-26-2012

 

 

Last week we announced the launch of our exciting Sizzling Summer event. Every day over the course of August and September, RuneScape members will receive a host of summer goodies, including a total of over 1 million XP, plus 91 additional bonus spins on the Squeal of Fortune. Add to this nine new customisation items, including a five-piece Tropical Islander outfit. All in all this totals up to a value of over $45!

 

Throughout the weekends in August and September, there will be a whole host of community events, and Yelps and Solomon will help celebrate Sizzling Summer on the Squeal of Fortune and the General Store.

 

If that wasn’t enough to get your summer juices flowing, today we announce the sizzling finale: Choose Your Fate!

 

Choose Your Fate is a selection of four of the most powerful rewards ever seen in RuneScape. Members for the entire Sizzling Summer (1st August GMT until 30th September GMT) will be able to choose a total of four of the following rewards:

  • Dodging death – This nifty reward lets you come back from the dead and re-spawn with all your gear still intact and life points fully charged.
  • Emergency healing box – On your last legs? Don’t worry! Anyone who consumes the healing box will be healed instantly and restored to maximum life points. Better still, become a life-saver and use your healing box on your friend or clan member to heal them instead!
  • Instakill dart – You're fighting for your life in the God Wars Dungeon: your health is low, and you've chugged your last Saradomin brew, but your foe isn't letting up. The answer is here. The instakill dart will kill whatever target you face with one almighty hit!
  • Remote deposit box – Stuck in the middle of nowhere and need to empty your backpack quickly? Use your remote deposit box and - voila! - for 5 minutes, any player can use the deposit box to send items back to their bank.

Choose wisely - these items can only be used once and will expire on 31st December 2012.

 

The only way to get your hands on these elite items is by being a member for the whole of August and September.

 

These items will never be available through Solomon’s General Store or the Squeal of Fortune and will be non-tradable. With the exception of the remote deposit box, they cannot be used during PvP.

 

Which items will you choose? One of each item, a mix, or four of the same one? The choice is yours!

 

Make sure you don’t miss out on the million XP, bonus spins, awesome outfits and Choose your Fate rewards by becoming a member now!

Personally, this just screams "Stay subscribed to me! Stay subscribed to me! We need your money!"

 

Really depressing.

Indeed, this whole newspost seems extremely desperate.... :sad:

I suppose reading it over again, that powerful item could mean anything, it may not be combat related. I still very much dislike the fact that there are items involved at all. But depending on what said items are it may not be that bad.

Also, this "Choose Your Fate" thing really scares me...

 

This better not be any type of weapon or armour...

Stick to cosmetics!

Haven't played for probably an year, I was waiting for the new combat but meh .. free 99 prayer, summoning and slayer is welcomed. I might as well subscribe.

 

I think you're misreading the post? Unless you're 350k away from each of those 99s. It's 350k exp at the end of August, then 700k exp at the end of September if you were subscribed the whole time. The only "every day" things are the 2 extra spins.

It's kind of has a double meaning

1. Be a member through all of August and receive 350,000 XP (once) and an "extra bonus spin every day"

2. Be a member through all of August and receive "350,000 XP and an extra bonus spin every" day

 

I'd formulate it "an extra bonus spin every day and 350k exp at the end of the month"

Oh I agree, it's not well worded, but there's no way they're giving away that much exp every day. :P

I've always been hopeful that the Jagex rwt thing would never decend into non-cosmetic items..

 

But giving you one of four powerful items FOR FREE just shouts that they'd all be available for sale aswell. I mean why else would they give you it for free..

 

Edit: Actually it doesn't even say for free in that does it. I don't have a great feeling about this :(

The last tidbit of info worries me. But besides that, I don't mind free XP and spins. Free customize items sounds neat-o.

Probably the opposite actually, they're hinting at this now in hope that giving the players time, they'll 'come around' to the idea. The Exp thing could be handy, although couldn't that be seen as RWT in a way? Pay for membership and we'll give you 'free' exp - Basically pay for exp?

So this is their idea of a worthy replacement to a bonus xp weekend?

Just be a member doing nothing and get 1mil xp?

It could be seen as RWT, but then we already have RWT in the form of SoF, so what... :/

It says a "chance" at 1 of the 4....so maybe they justify giving out powerful items by just giving them to a few lucky people? O_o

 

I sincerely hope I'm wrong with this...

 

Seems like you could be right -

 

Well, if all of this wasn't enough, players who are members for the entirety of the Sizzling Summer (1st August GMT until 30th September GMT) will also have the envious chance to CHOOSE YOUR FATE!

 

People who have stayed subscribed over those two months have a chance to 'choose your fate' - sounds like a luck of the draw type thing.

They haven't exactly said how the Xp will be given. It may be instant, it may be another Mad May Necklace-type thing.
