This Week In RuneScape: Premier Club & Daily Challenge Upgrades


Lots of big news this week, folks. Premier Club is back, and Daily Challenges have had a major upgrade. Plus, we have exciting plans for the final months of the year – including the chance to get your hands on an elusive Golden Party Hat!

New Bonus Weekly Rewards & Daily Challenge Upgrades
A new approach to Daily Challenges

Big news this week - we’ve improved the Daily Challenges experience, and have got some new Weekly Rewards for you too!

Currently, players are stuck with a selection of challenges that aren't necessarily appealing, and these can end up stagnating in your backlog. Some of the current tasks on offer are also a little imbalanced, and the rewards feel a little stale. So we thought it was time for a bit of an upgrade!

Here’s what’s changing:

  • You’ll get three Daily Challenges every day. These then expire at the end of the day before being replaced by three more.
  • Completing a Daily Challenge awards a Large Lamp (previously a Huge Lamp) - but now you can get three rewards per day, not just one!
  • Vis Wax has more value than ever before. A re-roll of your Daily Challenges now only costs 10 Vis Wax (it was 25) and you can re-roll as many times as you want! Extending a Challenge now only costs 30 Vis Wax (it was 50) and doubles its Weekly progress (see below).
  • We’ve also improved specific Daily Challenges that we felt were a bit rusty – see the Patch Notes for full details.

NEW Weekly Challenges

  • Completing a Daily Challenge progresses a brand new Weekly Reward Track - one for Free to Play players, and one for Members.
  • Every three Dailies you complete unlocks a Weekly Reward – with up to a maximum of seven unlocks per week!
  • Rewards could include anything from Silverhawk Down and Dungeoneering Tokens up to a Cash Bag, Deathtouched Dart or Gift For the Reaper! (Note: For Ironman players, restricted rewards are substituted with Oddments)
  • Feeling a wee bit lazy? Ah, we all have our off-days. Luckily, the Weekly Track contains Challenge Skip Tokens – meaning you can swerve the objective and claim the lovely rewards. Go on, treat yourself!
  • RuneScape Members receive the rewards from both the Member and free-to-play tracks, while non-members only get the free-to-play goodies.

We think these changes should really enhance the Daily Challenge experience. Let us know what you think!

Coming Up In RuneScape
Golden Party Hats, the final Once Upon A Time miniquest and more!

Phew, 20 years of RuneScape, eh? What a year it’s been! But it’s not over yet – we’re rounding out 2021 with some seriously big moments, including the chance to earn a very special item!

In case you missed Friday’s announcement, here’s what we mean…

Golden Party Hat Hunt!

What better way to conclude our 20th year than with a super-rare, time limited and task-orientated opportunity to earn a Golden Party Hat?

Party Hats are some of the most sought-after items in RuneScape, and we don’t release them for any old reason. They’re tradeable, high value and of course, extremely fetching. They’ve only been available six times throughout RuneScape's entire history, so we’re not messing around when we say that you don’t want to miss the 2021 Golden Party Hat Hunt!

To earn your Golden Party Hat, you’ll have to complete a variety of tasks in order to land some shards. Fortunately, there are lots of different tasks available, so you can approach things in your own inimitable style. Time is of the essence, however - the grand shard search begins November 22nd and runs until January 3rd. Mark your calendars, folks – we’d hat for you to miss out...

Check out the full details in our special blog.

Once Upon A Time Quest

Our anniversary quest series concludes at the end of this month, with the final chapter of Relomia’s story. It’s time to help her discover her true self, as she learns how she can make a difference to the world of Gielinor. The fourth and final instalment will be worth 4 Quest Points, which is enough to access the penultimate Reward Track unlock – and a T5 Magical Dice!

Make sure you’ve caught up with the first three miniquests (Foreshadowing, Flashback and Fortunes) before the final adventure launches on November 22nd.

Full details here.

Death Costs Discussion

This December we’ll be hosting an open discussion with the community on Death Costs, the outcome of which will shape any future designs. More news soon!

RuneScape: The First 20 Years Out Now!
The ultimate guide to RuneScape!

After some shipment headaches due to ongoing global supply issues, RuneScape: The First 20 Years has now hit the shelves – and she’s a beaut!

With illustrations, concept art and stories from the development of our beloved game, it’s an in-depth celebration of the world of Gielinor – and a not-too-shabby Christmas gift for the ‘Scaper you hold dearest.

The Deluxe Edition is sold out, but you can still get your hands on the lavish hardcover Standard Edition – an equally formidable tome for pouring over by the fire as the winter nights draw in!
