Behind the Runescape Scenes is a sneak peek at the planned game updates that we hope to launch in the coming month.
In Runescape Solomon’s Store, there are two more bank boosters – free to members – and a set of overrides to match the Vitality Suit: a cape, two-handed sword, two-handed crossbow and staff.
There are also challenge gems that allow you to host your own competitions: staked or just for fun, for skilling or combat. Treasure Hunter has some new headpiece add-ons for your skilling outfits, too.
If you missed our Developer Q&A on the changes in the RuneScape Team, you can catch it again by video.
You can catch our latest podcast on YouTube, too – all about Tuska. You can also keep up with our podcasts on PodBean or iTunes.
This, however, is only a plan – not a promise – that a particular update will be released in a particular way or at a particular time. To get you the highest quality updates as quickly as possible, we usually keep on tweaking and testing right up until the moment before release, so sometimes things change or take a bit longer than expected. We aren’t afraid to change our plan if necessary, as we will never launch an update before it is ready.
If you want to get to Tuska in Runescape, just access the new lodestone teleport that takes you straight onto her back by automatically unlocked. Once you’re there, speak to a representative of the four factions present – Armadyl, Saradomin, Zamorak and the Godless – and pledge yourself to one of these.
The event plays out hourly, as a twenty-minute D&D for 1-10 players. You can start in any of three ways:
Use the Grouping System to make a team of people you know, then talk to Wizard Chambers on Tuska’s back.
To queue for a random group, click on the edge of the island closest to Tuska’s back.
To play solo, start a group of one through the Grouping System, and speak to Chambers.
Note that the encounters scale in accordance with the number of players in the group.
As the event plays out, you will jump between four islands – orbiting fragments of worlds that Tuska has destroyed. On each, you’ll skill or fight to gather divine energy – click the information icon on the interface at the top of the screen if you need to know what to do. Doing so will charge your god spear, and earn you reward points to spend.
You’ll spend 5 minutes on visiting the islands in random order. Besides, you’ll need to charge up your god spear by at least 10% to reach Tuska’s head over the course of the islands, where you’ll strike her a blow, earning victory points for your faction.
