In all this excitement, don’t forget that the Zodi-Yak Track is still open for your all your yak-based cravings. It seems that Yaktrick Moore has added a number of new Archaeology tasks to his list, so there’s no need to miss out on that sweet, sweet day one XP.
It’s also a great time to purchase the Premier Pass and get access to all the snazziest rewards from the Premium Track. Remember, you’ll also get any rewards you would have already unlocked, so it’s a great bargain.
A new range of Archaeology Merch is now available in the Official Merch Store!
Perhaps you’d like to take that archaeological ambiance with you on the go? In that case, look no further than the Archaeology Soundtrack, featuring 17 new tracks from RuneScape’s newest skill, alongside 17 tracks from The Land Out of Time. These rockin’ RuneTunes are available on all major streaming services, including Spotify.
Prove your mastery of Archaeology – or another classic skill – with your very own Master Cape phone case! Available for all the most popular models.
Finally, it’s worth pointing out that from now on, spending over £50, €60, or $70 will get you free shipping. It’s a permanent buff, so keep it in mind!
We don’t expect any delays to deliveries due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, but we will keep you updated.

Tuesday, March 31 – 17:00 BST (16:00 Game Time) – Let’s Play Archaeology
The expedition to Archaeology has launched, which means only one thing: time to play! Our JMods will take the action into Gielinor and start digging into one of the amazing locations introduced with the skill: the Kharid-et Dig Site! Want to join the fun and skill with us? Then join us on Twitch to know on which world we’ll be.
And to make this Let’s Play even more exciting, we will be running a Twitch Live Giveaway! We’ve partnered with Razer to give you a chance at upgrading your gaming setup and get the best Archaeology experience you could ever have. During the stream, we will randomly pick 3 lucky ‘Scapers in the chat and offer them a shiny new Razer Kraken Ultimate Headset!
LootScape will be enabled.
Our live streams are always a great opportunity to grab some awesome in-game prizes – and with the arrival of Archaeology come an extra surprise… the LootScape has some new loot! Starting today, each and every RuneScape stream and featured Content Creator stream watched will give you a random drop from one of the following below.
Small (250 Archaeology XP) or Large (500 Archaeology XP) Twitching Tome
A random Archaeology consumable
View counter goes up on Orb
By the way, you won’t be able to use the Twitching Tomes before completing the Archaeology tutorial. We wouldn’t want any of you coming in fresh and having that thing explode in your hands because the Archaeology Guild hasn’t given you the proper training. No no.
And remember, all Premier Club Gold members will also get an extra drop!
Exciting isn’t it?! So don’t wait up - connect your RS account to your Twitch account and find out more here (https://www.runescape.com/lootscape). Once that’s done, have fun and watch our streams during the day for a guaranteed drop.
