19-Dec-2012 - A Stray in a Manger [Christmas Event]

19 December 2012 - 02:41 PM

A Stray in a Manger (free players and members)

The stray dog of Varrock has been a flea-ridden, doleful-eyed RuneScape mainstay since 2007, but enough is enough: in the spirit of seasonal goodwill and festive charity, it's time to give the stray dog a home.

In this year's Christmas event - A Stray in a Manger - you'll help out a snow imp who's been assigned to running Pet Christmas in Santa's stead. He'll ask you to round up the stray dog of Varrock and three other transient pooches from around Gielinor, in order to imbue them with a sense of purpose: as his stand-in reindeer!

Once they've delivered presents to the pets of the world, you'll have the choice of which of the four dogs you'd like to take on as your own, and a choice of locations in which to establish a fixed address for your four-legged friend. You'll have up until the end of the year to decide which dog and which kennel location are for keeps. After that, they'll remain a persistent part of the RuneScape world, as you see it.

Your rewards will be a wearable Santa beard and a Gift of Giving. The Gift of Giving works in a similar way to the parcel in the party game Pass the Parcel: you can open it once and receive an item of decor for your kennel. You can then trade your Gift of Giving for one held by another player, and you'll both be able to open the next layer or wrapping for another item. If you're lucky, you'll reach the item in the centre, which can be either a cosmetic Santa sack item for free players or members, or - for members only - a wayward snow impling who can grant you bonus Hunter XP (see the Snow Implings section). If you get to the centre and your Gift of Giving disappears, or you lose it for any reason, you can always get another from the snow imp and carry on swapping.

The decorations come in five types - colour schemes, bowls, mats, toys and flea circuses - and each type has variations themed around Saradomin, Guthix, Zamorak and Zaros. There's even a 'Santa' title to unlock - usable only by members - if you can get hold of at least one of each of the following: a bowl, a mat, a toy and a flea circus.

It's not possible to continually swap Gifts of Giving back and forth between the same two people, so get into the festive spirit and start swapping with as many people as you can!

Snow Implings (members only)

Members will also be able to catch errant snow implings found flying across the world. These have no Hunter level requirement and can be caught bare-handed, but give a range of festive fare from previous Christmas events or kennel customisations in exchange for their freedom.

There's even a small chance that a captured impling will be one of the snow imp's wayward assistants. There are four of these, and each one is worth 50,000 bonus Hunter XP - stored and given out as you train - when handed back to their boss. They can also be found in layers of the Gift of Giving.

Merry Christmas!

In Other News

  • Give an altogether less needy pet a home this Christmas, as Solomon's brings Special Pets into stock! Further details can be found at Solomon's General Store, or here.
  • You'll find Tradeable Gifts on the Squeal of Fortune from today until the end of the year, as well as through drops and skilling activities. Claim the rewards from these straight away, or gather them and trade them with other players to make collections for even greater rewards.
  • Most pets - including those with a Summoning requirement - no longer need food in order to stay with you. The only exceptions are cats from Gertrude, which will still run away if not fed.

Trying to get the event to move on so letting as many people as possible know what happened so I don't get questions about it in the future.

Runescape in minecraft - The Barrows [Fully Playable]

15 June 2012 - 11:22 PM

Some may remember a while back when I uploaded a video where I showed the Grand Exchange in Minecraft. Well, after a long break in building Runescape areas, I come back with a fully playable Barrows Map.

I have a video showcasing the map as well as a playthrough of it for those having trouble completing the map (or for those who want to see the map before playing it.) Preferably watch it on youtube for better resolution.

[15-May-2012] Stomp the Bosses!

15 May 2012 - 04:41 PM

Everyone loves the challenge of a boss kill. Whether you are a tactical genius, a veteran of PvM or you just wade in and hope for the best, boss killing is not only a testament to your combat abilities; it's a sure fire way to nab some of the best in-game items. General Graardor, Nex and the King Black Dragon are all on our hit list this weekend, so join us as we turn the tables on some of RuneScape's most fearsome bosses in two days of combat mayhem.

A community event wouldn't be complete without a helping hand along the way, though, so naturally we have plenty of support lined up for you to make this weekend the most successful boss-killing experience possible.

First off, some of the most successful Clans in RuneScape will be around to guide and support you, and we've also teamed up with our trusted Player Moderators to lend a hand. These guys have a specific interest in events and will be able to answer your questions, offer general advice or even join you on a lucrative boss-hunting trip!

And if that is not enough to tempt you to cancel all your plans for this weekend and spend it boss hunting, we'll also be sending J Mods into game to cheer you on and offer advice. After all, everyone needs a bit of help from time to time!

Oh, and we also have something rather special planned to make this weekend one to remember – more of that later this week!

For now, keep an eye on our forum thread where all the pre-organised events are advertised. Everyone is welcome, so stock up on supplies, brush up on your boss-killing tactics, and prepare to join us as we Stomp the Bosses.

RuneScape Community Team

Double Drops

From Saturday to Monday inclusive, a wide selection of bosses and other enemies throughout RuneScape will reward you with double drops - your swag bag’ll be fuller than ever before, as you’ll find a duplicate of everything looted from the beasts below:

God Wars: Creatures and Bosses
God Wars II: Nex
King Black Dragon
Kalphite Queen
Dagannoth Kings
The Giant Mole
Chaos Tunnels: all monsters, except Bork
Revenant Dungeon: all monsters
Stronghold of Security: all monsters

There’s also a chance to receive double drops from the Barrows brothers, and from the Barrows chest.

Facing down a brutal boss is all the better with a friend or two at your side, so be sure to get involved with the RuneScape Community Team’s Stomp the Bosses event this weekend.

Spin to Win

This weekend, we’re adding a fantastic selection of monkey-themed prizes to be won on the Squeal of Fortune. There’s a monkey mace, a monkey barrel, and three monkey hats themed around “see no evil; hear no evil; speak no evil”. The barrel can be found among the common drops, while the monkey mace and monkey hats will be uncommon drops. Don’t miss out on your chance to grab a piece of monkey mayhem!

This offer runs from Saturday the 19th up to and including Monday the 21th in its entirety (GMT), so what are you waiting for? Sharpen your weapons, polish your armour and you’ll be rewarded with some fantastic drops.

Don’t forget that as a member you’ll get 3 spins instead of 2 every day you login during May as part of the Mad May offer, so you’ll have even more chances to win big. Subscribe now so you can get your extra spins!
