Hallowe'en Treat: Scary Bonus XP Weekend!

Recommended Posts

We're really getting into the spirit of Hallowe'en and Trick or Treat, and would like to give you - the community - a giant treat! Want to skill up in preparation for the Evolution of Combat launch, or just getting into the Hallowe'en spirit? Then join in one of our famous Bonus XP Weekends!

For the first time ever, free players will also share in the Bonus XP Weekend, with 20% more XP. Naturally, though, being a member will always give you a significantly greater bonus: double XP!

Grab your gear, examine your skill levels and start scheming – the weekend will run from noon (GMT) Saturday 27th October to noon (GMT) to Monday 29th October..

Keep an eye out for further details – we’ll tell you more as the event draws closer.

Bonus XP Weekend FAQ

 

When is the Bonus XP Weekend?

The Bonus XP Weekend will run from noon (GMT) Saturday 27th October to noon (GMT) Monday 29th October.

 

I'm a member. How much bonus XP will I get?

You'll get twice the XP you'd ordinarily earn from most skill training activities.

 

Will the Bonus XP apply to training Summoning?

Yes! You will receive double Summoning XP when training on members' worlds.

 

I’m a free player! Will I receive bonus XP?

Yep! Players on free worlds will benefit from a x1.2 XP boost.

 

Will the XP modifier reduce over time as with previous bonus XP events?

No! The bonus XP modifier is set at x2 for members' worlds and x1.2 for free worlds for the whole weekend. Note that members on free worlds will only receive the x1.2 modifier.

 

How will other XP boosting items/effects work with the bonus XP?

Items such as skill training pendants or skill gear training sets will work in addition to the Bonus XP Weekend's benefits.

 

For example, if you were cutting normal trees while wearing the full lumberjack outfit during the weekend, your XP would be calculated as follows:

  • The 25 XP normally received from cutting the tree would first benefit from the lumberjack boost, resulting in a bonus of 1.25 XP.
  • The bonus XP modifier would then boost the standard 25 XP to 50 XP before adding the lumberjack bonus, totalling resulting in an end gain of 51.25 XP.

 

 

The following items will work during the Bonus XP Weekend:

  • Lumberjack outfit
  • Golden mining suit
  • Constructor’s outfit
  • Black Ibis outfit
  • Master runecrafter robes
  • Fishing outfit
  • Squeal of Fortune training sets: Artisan’s, Blacksmith’s, Botanist’s, Sous chef’s
  • Squeal of Fortune skill training pendants
  • Brawling gloves
  • Loyalty Programme auras that give a percentage XP bonus, such as Salvation, Corruption and Harmony.

 

 

Which training methods will be excluded from receiving bonus XP?

  • Barbarian horn boosts
  • Offering bones on a gilded altar
  • Sacred clay items
  • All Fired Up rewards
  • Quest XP rewards, including Early Bird bonuses.
  • Any items giving bonus XP which aren't listed in the list above (e.g. ancient effigies, strange rocks, genie lamps, tomes of experience, goldsmithing gloves, Ectofuntus, altars in player-owned houses, etc).
  • XP rewards at the end of minigames/D&Ds (e.g. Tears of Guthix, Soul Wars, Pest Control, Jade Vine, Skeletal Horror, giving sq'irk juice to Osman, etc).
  • Anything which allows points to be exchanged for XP (e.g. Dungeoneering tokens, Penguin Points, Brimhaven Agility Arena tickets, Slayer incentives, Mrs Winkin's World of Seeds shop from Vinesweeper, Dominion Tower item exchange, etc).
  • Any XP earned through the Assist System
  • Clan Avatar XP boosts
  • Recruit a Friend Bonus XP
  • Festival of the Dead Bonus XP

This was the first thing that came to my mind regarding to how contradictory this update is in nature.

Ugh, really? Jagex, you stopped doing Bonus XP Weekends for a reason. Plenty of us argued about this on rational terms, eventually convinced you on the economic issues it causes, and that should have been the end of the matter.

 

I am just so tired of this. I love the people this game has introduced me to and will continue to do so, but I have become so frustrated with Jagex.

I do not know what to think of this..

 

Bonus xp weekends, fair enough. But first Jagex said they were removing them. They were replaced by bonus items from SoF. Okay.

But why bring them back?

In before you have to buy the ability from Solomon's General Store for $45

 

Would be nice to know if the same rules apply as previous double exp weekends, I.E no summoning/Prayer etc etc or if it's just a combat only xp weekend day

If they think the economic damage caused by this will be mitigated by the BXPW's short term announcement (just over two weeks away)... they're surely being very naive. If anything the bottlenecks will be even more intense because there's even less time for people to prepare to take advantage.

 

EDIT: They did say it was a "scary" treat to be fair. On this page's evidence, they haven't failed so far.

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

1233 planks off 90 construction if it's a double XP day... Will probably tidy that off with Oak planks or something, or go back and spend the rest of my money on them.

Awesome. Extra XP is always great. :D And also the fact I'm sorta keying someone to 120, so the decreased time with that weekend comes in handy. :P

i would have said that the first clue that they were going to go back on their word was when they mentioned that clan avatars don't stack with bxpw but that's just being pretentious i suppose

They stick to their word, just indirectly, if they say they will do something, 100% of the time they will do the opposite.
