Demon Flashmobs

 

 

Demon Flash Mobs are blazing their way to Gielinor this week. Team up with your friends and head to RuneScape's scariest areas, where you'll fight your way through waves of minions and take down demonic bosses. Succeed, and you'll earn demon slayer armour and crossbows: ranged gear with black dragonhide-level stats and bonus damage against demonic enemies!

 

 

Demon Flash Mobs (members only)

 

There's brimstone on the breeze this week as Demon Flash Mobs manifest in RuneScape, taking you to Gielinor's darkest places to test your team-based combat skills to the max!

 

 

Demon_Flashmobs-28101221.png

While on members' worlds, those of you with combat level 120 or higher will receive hourly notifications in your chat boxes informing you of demonic incursions at any of 14 locations around the world, including the Wilderness. To take on these graphically reworked beasts, you'll need to gear up for combat and gather some friends, because this'll be no walk in the park.

 

Each invasion will be led by a demon boss, but initially he'll hang back and gather power while you fight his minions. These consist of imp heralds, lesser demons and black demons. Defeating all imp heralds will render the lesser demons vulnerable to attack, and defeating them will allow you to attack the black demons. The longer it takes you to defeat the lesser demons and black demons, the tougher the demon boss will be when he finally goes on the warpath, so take them down as quickly as you can!

 

When you face the demon boss, you'll notice that he'll have titles before and after his name. These give you clues as to his combat style and special abilities. For example, a demon named 'General Mord'uun the Blazing' would fight with accurate melee attacks (from 'General') which would cause additional fire-based damage over time (from 'the Blazing'). For a book giving further details on the meaning of demon names, speak to Brother Celerity in Edgeville Monastery.

 

When defeated, the demon boss can give some valuable drops. Best among these are pieces of demon slayer armour, along with main-hand and off-hand demon slayer crossbows. This awesome ranged gear has good stats - the armour is equivalent to black dragonhide, and the crossbows are better than rune crossbows - and you'll get a boost to damage dealt and experience gained while fighting demons for each piece of the gear you equip. A full set of the gear makes the crossbows better than their dragon equivalents when fighting demons! It's worth noting that fighting a flash mob in the Wilderness gives you a greater chance of getting a demon slayer gear drop, and other drops will be worth around three times as much as elsewhere!

So, buckle up your best smiting trousers and gather some strong friends to your side - it's time for some demon-slaying mayhem!

How to start Demon Flash Mobs:

  • Keep an eye out for announcements in your chat window (Please note: these can be switched off with the Doomsayer in Lumbridge, if you wish).
  • For further advice, speak to Brother Celerity in Edgeville Monastery.

Requirements:

  • You must be a RuneScape member.
  • It is strongly recommended that you have a combat level of at least 120 before fighting demon flash mobs, and you won't see any flash mob announcements until you have reached that level.

Demon Slayer Quest Rework (free players and members)

 

The Wilderness isn't the only place where demonic forces pierce the veil. In a rework of the old Demon Slayer quest, you'll help Grüfeld Bach - demon hunter extraordinaire - to foil a wicked plot against Varrock by finding the legendary sword Silverlight.

 

The new quest is a much more focused experience than its travel-heavy predecessor, as you complete trials to test your mind, body and spirit on your quest for the sword, and comes complete with shiny new graphics and amazing audio.

 

If you've already completed the old version of the quest, you'll be able to replay this one. You won't get any more Quest Points for doing so, though, and you won't need to complete the new quest in order to wear your quest cape or completionist cape.

 

Mod Liono

 

How to start Demon Slayer:

  • Speak to Grüfeld Bach in Varrock.

Requirements:

  • None.

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

So they fixed it, reverted it, then just now fixed it again?

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

Wut does this mean?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

Just killed demon in the wildy; got rune plate, blue charms and there were 5 infernal ashes dropped

Was actually pretty easy while ranging, because he just went for everybody who was meleeing. Crystal bow decimated him, 5k ultimates all round!

New Demon Slayer is interesting, moved into dungeons under the churches. Don't even get to fully explore the Zamorak one as Delrith happens about half way round. No more awkward word remembering.

Pyrefiend is actually my new... It was used once or twice elsewhere... Maybe for water fiends somewhere. But the model has been around I think.

Cash bags:

Not sure how to feel about this either: :razz:

Cash bags sounds like a good move. Eliminates the over-pay out to noobs vs the poor pay out to high lvls debate.

Also you missed the 'shadow demon' set ;)

Is there anywhere you can go to see how long until the next demon arrives?

[spoiler=click you know you wanna]
Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

I fell for buying the Greater demon outfit.

 

I have now ascended to become the Champion of Khorne.

 

I CAN FEEL THE WARP OVERTAKING ME..
