Reinventing the Squeal
Squeal of Fortune is undergoing a major facelift – in fact, it’s being totally reinvented. In just a few weeks' time, it's getting a complete graphical rework and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. Get ready for Treasure Hunter!
So, what’s Treasure Hunter all about?
Those of you wondering 'What happens to my spins?' - don’t worry! Every remaining spin in your possession will be automatically converted to a key when Treasure Hunter launches.
- Like Squeal of Fortune, every day you’ll have the opportunity to win randomly selected prizes.
- Instead of spinning a wheel, you’ll use keys to open chests, each of which holds a prize.
- The prizes and their rarities will be similar to Squeal of Fortune, but tweaked so they’re more relevant to your character’s skill levels. We hope you’ll want to keep more of what you win.
- Expect a completely new interface: one designed with the central themes and spirit of RuneScape in mind.
For other questions, check out the official FAQ. This will be expanded upon release, and we invite you to ask questions and leave suggestions on the forums.
Treasure Hunter is being unleashed in the coming weeks. Watch this space for further announcements!
The RuneScape Team
Why are you changing the Squeal of Fortune?
It's time! Treasure Hunter will be more in keeping with the spirit of RuneScape, has an improved interface, more relevant prizes, and no Yelps. It is also a better foundation for future improvements.
How will I get Treasure Hunter keys?
Keys will be obtained in exactly the same way that spins are currently: such as monster drops, skilling, through daily challenges, or purchasing with your normal payments methods. To find out how else to obtain spins or keys, head to this wiki page, and check out the “Getting Spins” section.
The prices for spin packages for will remain exactly the same for Treasure Hunter keys, so you needn’t worry about price changes either.
Should I use all of my spins before the update? I don’t want to lose any!
Worry not – any spins left on your account when the update goes live will be turned into Treasure Hunter Keys, ready to use right away! If you have 14 spins remaining, you’ll see 14 keys waiting after the update.
If I have a prize unclaimed from the Squeal of Fortune, will I lose it in the update?
When Treasure Hunter goes live, any Squeal of Fortune prize that has been won but not claimed will be removed, and you will be given a Treasure Hunter key in exchange. This key can then be used to claim a new prize by playing Treasure Hunter.
Are the prizes we can win on the Squeal of Fortune changing for Treasure Hunter?
The overall prize pool for Treasure Hunter will mostly remain the same, although we are adding and removing a few things. We've done some rebalancing, though, and you'll find that the prizes you receive are much more relevant to your skill levels.
We’ve taken on board your feedback from past promotions, making changes such as tipping the balance away from straight XP lamps and toward stars and bonus XP items – changes we hope will make your experience of Treasure Hunter more enjoyable.
What happens to the extra daily spin from my Gold or Silver Premier package?
You will receive the same number of Treasure Hunter keys per day as you would have Squeal of Fortune spins, including any extra from regular membership or the Premier Club.
That means a total of one key for free players, two for members and three for Gold/Silver Premier Club members, daily.
Do I have to go searching for chests to play Treasure Hunter?
No. Treasure Hunter will be accessed through an interface found on your Extras tab.
