Royal Rhinos and New Seasonal Hiscores

 

RoyalRhinoUnitedforWildlife-07111230.jpg

 

We’ve teamed up with the charity United for Wildlife on their United for Rhino campaign to help them raise awareness of illegal wildlife trade, in particular rhino horn trade.

 

Today, RuneScape members can begin the journey to adopting a white or black royal rhino pet in-game.

 

All you need to do is visit the young conservationists who are waiting for you in Burthorpe to tell you all about the plight of the rhinos - particularly the dangers they face from poachers in the wild.

 

The conservationists, Trang and Mauricio, will be there for 2 weeks and will provide you with a different multiple choice question, related to the plight of the rhinos and illegal wildlife trade, each day.

 

To adopt a white royal rhino, all you need to do is answer 4 questions correctly over the 14 day period, and to adopt your black Royal Rhino you need to answer 10 questions correctly.

 

The royal rhinos in your care are extra special. To thank you for saving them, they are offering an XP buff, 10% if you have the white rhino and 15% for the black rhino.

 

On top of this, those of you with 96 Summoning can use your white rhino like a pack yak, giving you access to a Pack Yak inventory for 1.5 hours in exchange for a pack yak pouch. Your black rhino offers the same for two hours.

 

These extras will last for the two weeks that our young conservationists are in game and for two weeks after they have moved on to other lands. After this, your rhinos will still be with you, just minus those special extras.

 

For more information on the plight of the rhino, visit the United for Wildlife website.

For the second week in a row, the update has broken various things in the game, in addition to the newly released update not working. Hilarious.

I actually submitted a question to the QA Q&A, which was basically along the lines of "How does an update of a certain piece of content break multiple others with its release?" No answers as of yet.

 

E: Whoop, can't log in lol. Glad I didn't wake up earlier to use Enlightenment.

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

Tormented wraiths

 

Also did some math. 6+6+3+15+(2x10) is 50% extra summon xp assuming enlightenment or bxp using full shaman, clan avatar, four leaf clover necklace, royal rhino and refer a friend (raf is affected by bxp last i checked)

 

So overall 250% xp boost on anything with a full th outfit

 

Edit before complaint:you'd have a clan mate summon Avatar so you can have rhino out

the bonus is multiplicative, so it's closer to 2.8x xp.

even with 1 defence would tormented wraiths be close to the best way to get them?  you won't get anywhere near the undead kills seasonal as players will just farm low-level skeletons or zombies.  i'd do waterfiends, dags or maybe kalgerion demons (if you have seis)
