New members town

Biohazard (Members’ Quest): This is the second part of our large ongoing quest. Elena has been rescued, but now she needs your help to find a cure for a plague that could kill hundreds!

Jungle Potion (Members’ Quest) Trufitus Shakaya requires that you collect five special jungle herbs for a potion so that he can commune with his gods.

New members town – Yanille: Explore this border town in the far south of Kandarin. Experienced Wizards will want to make use of the Wizards’ Guild (magic level 66 to enter). Yanille also contains, a bank, a cookery shop, an inn and various other features.

Every Saturday and Sunday in December is a Winter Weekend – that’s five weekends, each with its own bonus for RuneScape members!

We’re kicking things off with a weekend of double drops from bosses, the Barrows, and more. A whole range of bosses and other beasties are waiting to be taken down – emerge victorious and fill your inventory with double the rewards! What’s more, the Barrows chest will also yield double the bounty. That means you could end up with two pieces of much-coveted Barrows armour!

For full details of which enemies will give you double drops this weekend, see our FAQ.

This weekend of double drop mayhem runs from Saturday 1st December 00:00 GMT until Sunday 2nd December 23:59 GMT. Don’t forget that every Winter Weekend hosts a new bonus – next week there’ll there’ll be double rewards from minigames!

If you’re after more festive fun, anyone who becomes a member in December will get the awesome Festive Aura and receive a +50% XP boost for 30 minutes a day! To grab your aura, click here and become a member today.

New members spells – Enfeeble, stun, vulnerability: These are cast using the new “soul rune”, bought from the wizards’ guild.

New features: Dragon bones – Dragon bones can now be buried for a bigger prayer xp bonus than big bones.

Improved monster A.I. Monsters who are far weaker than you no longer auto attack. This also helps stop cheats who use programs to unfairly keep their character logged in at a respawn point, and gain combat xp unfairly.
