God Statues: Construction D&D - January 3rd 2013

03 January 2013 - 11:46 AM

God Statues: Construction D&D (Members Only)

In this new Construction distraction and diversion, you'll help Copernicus Glyph - master sculptor - to build up to four statues each month at sites around Gielinor.

Posted Image

There are four statue sites around the world: in Lumbridge, Taverley, Canifis and Gu'Tanoth. At each site, you'll have the choice of building a statue of any of the following: Commander Zilyana, Juna, Kr'il Tsutsaroth and General Graardor. It's up to you which statue you build and where, but tempers in the area may flare if you make a controversial choice!

When you've made your choice, you'll follow Copernicus's expert directions to build scaffolding, from which his latest masterwork can be wrought. Once you've determined the correct number of pieces to be used and arranged them in columns of the right heights, the statue will be completed and you'll earn a hearty chunk of Construction XP. The quality of the statue that you build - and the XP reward - will depend on your current Construction level.

If you have chosen a statue that's appropriate to the area in which you're building, then you'll have the opportunity to pray at that statue for a Prayer XP reward. However, if you've built a statue that ill fits the area's faith, then you'll earn the ire of one of the local god's more militant followers. Drive off the fanatic who attacks you and you'll earn a Slayer XP reward. In this way, you can choose to receive either Slayer or Prayer XP for each of the four statues that you can build per month.

At the start of each calendar month, any statues you've built will be destroyed, and you'll be able to complete the D&D four more times for further rewards. Build any one statue four months in a row (in any location) and you'll earn a wieldable chisel, in the colour of the statue's related god. When wielded, this handy tool can be used to boost your Construction level by 1 - great for making some headway in your player-owned house!

So, what're you waiting for? Prove to Copernicus that you're a chip off the old block and earn yourself some rocking rewards!

Botany Bay & Ozan Quest Double Bill - Sept. 26th, 2012

26 September 2012 - 02:12 PM

Botany Bay

Posted Image

As part of our ongoing war on botting and gold farming , we launch Botany Bay! Those found to be using illegal software will be permanently banned and their account deleted - with no chance of appeal should they continue to ignore our warnings. After our recent major banning of professional gold farmers - Botany Bay is your chance to publicly name and shame persistent bot abusers!

As we hunt for and identify botters, you - the good citizens of Gielinor - will be the ultimate deliverers of justice!

Unrepentant and persistent bot-users will now find themselves banished to Botany Bay. This foreboding island is the staging ground for trials run by the Botfinder General, where there's only one verdict and justice is swift and uncompromising.

Those of you wishing to take part in the trials can speak to any of the trial announcers found in major Gielinor cities. You'll be teleported to the courtroom on Botany Bay, and given access to portals that can take you back any time. You'll be invited to pelt the condemned with rotten tomatoes, and will be asked to vote, along with other like-minded players, on one of three account-ending punishments:
  • Death by Crushing: Nothing says "banned" like a bot pancake.
  • Death by Swallowing: Watch as the bot is devoured by something unspeakable from the Abyss. Mm...crunchy.
  • Death by Deity: Righteous rays of bot-melting justice are the choice of the discerning angry mob.
Vote in three trials, and you'll be rewarded with a wieldable pitchfork of vigilantism. After that, the next three trials you vote in will unlock increasingly angry emotes, which can be performed by right-clicking your pitchfork. Finally, your seventh trial will reward you with the gloriously pointy pitchfork of justice.

We will continue to evolve our anti-botting measures to hunt down those guilty of trying to spoil the game for genuine players. So while we continue with the investigations, the trials can commence for those already found out!

Ozan Quest Double Bill

Star alongside RuneScape's most dashing rogue, Ozan, in two new quests. These two quests can be completed by players of all levels and are fully voice-acted. Be sure to play with the sound on for the full experience!

Stolen Hearts (free and members)
Ozan's in Draynor Village, looking for an old friend who's fallen into bad company. You'll join Ozan as you infiltrate the Draynor underworld, meet an old flame, and become caught up in a kidnapping plot of princely proportions that leads back to Al Kharid - the home from which Ozan was banished years ago.

Traverse the rooftops of the gloriously reworked Al Kharid to steal the mother of all diamonds, and confront the kidnapping villains. You may find, though, that the intrigue runs deeper than you or Ozan ever suspected...

Posted Image

Rewards include Constitution XP and 2500 coins. At any time after the quest is completed (even if you were free-to-play at completion), members can claim one of four criminally cool titles, chosen depending the type of rogue you proved yourself to be during the quest (changeable if you're not happy with the result), as well as Agility, Prayer and Thieving XP lamps.

How to start Stolen Hearts:
Speak to Ozan in Draynor Village.


You'll need to defeat 3 level 2 mercenaries.

Diamond in the Rough (members only)

Osman, the Al Kharid spymaster, has sent you and Ozan deep into the Kharidian desert, trailing the mysterious perpetrator of Stolen Hearts's kidnapping plot. A ransom payment that doesn't want to be given away, as well as some altogether smellier perils, mean that this desert adventure will require every ounce of yours and Ozan's roguish guile.
Help Ozan as he seeks to clear his name, unearth forgotten lore that sets the scene for the later desert quests, and find out who was really behind the kidnapping plot.
Rewards include Agility, Constitution and Thieving XP, as well as access to an all-new underground area and the opportunity to get hold of a new weapon and shield.

Mod Srowley

How to start Diamond in the Rough:
Speak to Ozan outside the palace in Al Kharid.

You must be a RuneScape member.
Stolen Hearts

You'll need to defeat 6 level 2 bandits and 2 level 5 thugs.

Daily Challenges & Noticeboard

19 September 2012 - 04:11 PM

Daily Challenges & Noticeboard - September 19th 2012

Daily Challenges

The Burthorpe Imperial Guard needs you! Members of all levels can now take on Daily Challenges: varied goals which, when completed, grant a healthy chunk of XP in the skill of your choice.
Each day, you'll be assigned a new Daily Challenge that you have the skill levels to fulfil. You can find out what this is through the new Noticeboard interface (more on that later).

These could be anything from culling the dagannoth population or brewing super prayer restore potions to cooking pies or growing watermelons. You can get hold of the materials you need however you like, but you'll need to complete at least the final stage of the process yourself. For example: if you're tasked with fletching yew longbows, you can buy the strings and bow shafts ready-made from the Grand Exchange and then put the bows together to complete the Daily Challenge.

When you're done, head over to Burthorpe and report in with the quartermaster for your reward. As you'll have to hand in any items that you're required to make, you'll be reimbursed with a challenge mystery bag, containing goods equivalent in value to any materials you had to use. On top of this, you'll get a hefty XP reward in the skill related to your completed Daily Challenge, as well as a spin on the Squeal of Fortune. Up to five of your most recently assigned Daily Challenges will be saved if not completed, so you can catch up if you miss out on a day or two.
Overcoming the thousands of Challenges that Gielinor can throw at you for sack-loads of XP and all expenses paid? Challenge accepted!

The Noticeboard

Gielinor is a vast place, filled with wonders, perils and riches aplenty, so sometimes the hardest thing is knowing what to do next! That's no longer a problem, with the introduction of the Noticeboard - the one-stop interface for all of your RuneScape adventures.
The Noticeboard - accessible anywhere via its icon in the bottom-right of the screen - brings the new Daily Challenge system together with the existing Quest Journal and Task Lists (now called Achievements) in one handy interface. For members, there's also a 'Minigames' tab, which directs you to Minigame or D&D content that's accessible to you, of the type that you want to play. To top it off, we've also included a 'Featured' tab, which picks out the best content that RuneScape has to offer that's suited to your levels, so you're never short of awesome content to experience.
Have fun!

How to start performing Daily Challenges

Access the Noticeboard, or speak to the Imperial Guard quartermaster in Burthorpe.

Pendant of Construction

29 August 2012 - 02:12 PM

I'd like to add that while wearing the Pendant of Construction and trading in Long Bones/Curved Bones to Belak in Dorgesh-Kaan, you do recieve the bonus experience. I didn't have a Pendant of Crafting on me, but I'd imagine it works in a similar manner.

Hopefully this will be a helpful addition to a future skill/pendant guide.

Pendant of Runecrafting

02 August 2012 - 09:20 PM

I'd just like to add an important little fact about the Pendant of Runecrafting for any guide (Runecrafting Guide) it is used in at a future date.

When in Runespan, if you help out the lost wizard by offering him the runes he desires (or doesn't), you will gain double the reward experience.
