UPDATE: 1st September

We’ve had a bunch of feedback regarding the Raffle and will be making some last minute adjustments. The largest concern was the quantity of prizes in the raffle and their potential impact on the game economy. While our research and balancing gives us confidence the prize quantities won’t have a long-term negative impact, I appreciate the overall concern and understand that players want us to be more conservative with the prize balancing.
 
The following changes have been made:
 
All prize quantities have been be halved (gold down from 200 to 100, godswords down from 5,000 to 2,500, etc)
The Golden Godswords and Golden Warpriest armour will not be protect-on-death (i.e. they’ll behave the same as their regular versions)
We’ve added an alternative for players to get a 2nd raffle ticket by completing a daily challenge if they cannot meet a JMod
Familiars will be blocked from the Lumbridge Crater, as they are at some banks and the Grand Exchange.
We will be adding an extra JMod ticket session US Eastern players to attend early evening – this will be midnight BST / 7pm EDT
We hope this will address most of the issues raised so far.

Balthazar’s Big Raffle

RuneScape has had a fantastic summer with a resurgence in players and tons of great content with more still to come – so what better way to celebrate than a raffle for some awesome limited edition items?! We’ve made sure that this September as summer fades and real life steals time away from gaming even the busiest players can get a kick out of RuneScape with Balthazar’s Big Raffle! It’ll take just minutes each day to be in with a chance of winning limited edition gold coloured godswords and warpriest armour, deathtouch darts, remote banking, silverhawk boots and feathers, skill outfit pieces and even 100 million gold pieces!

 

Starting after the game update on September 1st, Balthazar can be found near the Burthorpe Lodestone offering entry into daily raffle. He’s venturing out from his Big Top Bonanza to offer a set number of limited edition items each day throughout the month. To be in with a chance of winning one of these prizes, you need to give him a raffle ticket – the more tickets you give him, the more chances you have to win. Every player can get up to 2 tickets per day; one from simply talking to Balthazar and another from a JMod in game at a meet-up event. Check back in with Balthazar the next day (after reset at GMT 00:00) to see if you’ve won a prize from previous days. Even if you don’t get the main item, you’ll still get a consolation prize of an XP Lamp.

 

There’s a different prize each day of the week, and a fixed number of each to be won in total:

  • Mondays - 100 Million Gold Coins x 200
  • Tuesdays - Golden Godsword (1 in 4 chance of each sword) x 5000
  • Wednesdays - Golden Warpriest Armour set (1 in 4 chance of each) x 10,000
  • Thursdays - 3 Death Touch Darts x 40,000
  • Fridays - Remote Bank Deposit Box (1hr Duration) x 80,000
  • Saturdays - Silverhawk Boots (or 250 silverhawk feathers if owned) x 20,000
  • Sundays – Skilling Outfit Piece (or 500,000gp if all owned) x 100,000

It’s your choice whether you enter a raffle each day or save up your tickets to increase your chances. You can find out how many tickets have been entered so far into that day’s raffle by asking Balthazar.

 

Each day throughout the month Jagex Mods will be in game to dish out another ticket. You can find us on Worlds 98 and 124 in the Lumbridge Crater at 4am,10am3pm and 8pm BST. JMods will be jumping into game at other times too, so follow us on Twitter to find out about more unscheduled raffle ticket giveaways:

If you need more information about the Raffle, check out the FAQ in the official forum thread.

 

With a new Grouping System, the opening of the Elf City, Rune Goldberg D&D, group skill capes and now Balthazar’s Big Raffle, September is going to be a month to remember in RuneScape!

Any idea of the cost of said tickets, or whether it's going to be in RSGP or real life currency?

Well, some death touched darts would come in handy for getting my completionist cape back!

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

Assuming the keys are free it's nice to see that they are making silverhawks semi-available via methods other than TH... granted it's still luck based.

Death Touched are probably a better prize to aim for than the gp pay out in terms of making the gps.

 

200* more likely to get them and then you got 3 shots at Nex or KK (could do others, but they seem the best bets) for 0 effort valuable drops.

 

 

As already demonstrated in this thread I fully expect to see mountains of rants from people who try to deathtouch the reaper comp req without reading first.

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

With my luck I won't win a thing from this. But I will still enter, I mean, a prismatic xp lamp is always something.

For me its a debate: Save tickets for the good days in hopes of winning big or entering at least 1 ticket a day so that i get 1 xp lamp a day at worst.

Think I'll be putting an emphasis on trying to get the golden warpriest sets, although a completely golden Saradomin Godsword would be amazing! Might be better to skip handing in the raffle tickets for the first week to bolster the chances for the week afterwards.

Tuesday, Wednesday and saturday would be my picks. 100m is too remote of a chance, and I don't need the money, insta-kill darts is useless for me without the comp count (understandable limitation, but does remove any use I have for it), and skilling outfit is also rather useless :P
