RuneScape’s February updates bring an array of activities for players, combining the thrill of combat with seasonal festivities. Here’s a closer look at what’s happening in the world of Gielinor.
Wilderness Flash Events: WildyWyrm Returns
The Wilderness becomes more lively with the addition of the WildyWyrm to Wilderness Flash Events. This event encourages players to engage in combat for a chance to secure valuable rewards. Located near the source of the River Lum, the WildyWyrm presents a challenge akin to the King Black Dragon event. Successful adventurers may earn rewards such as the Wyrm Reward Gland, containing items like Wyrm Spikes, Hearts, or Scalps. The event is now scheduled, with its first appearance at 23:00 GMT.
Valentine’s Day with Devotion Sprites
In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Devotion Sprites are appearing near lodestones in Burthorpe, Varrock, Lumbridge, and Prifddinas. Capturing these sprites from February 9th to 15th rewards players with a Lovely Gift Box, which may contain Heartments, Valentine’s Chocolates, or Rose Tinted Glasses. This event offers a seasonal twist to the game, allowing players to collect themed rewards.
Double XP LIVE Event
The Double XP LIVE event, set for February 16th to 26th, provides players with 48 hours of double XP to be used at their discretion over 10 days. This event includes the option to pause the XP timer, offering flexibility for players to maximize their experience gain. Additionally, players can exchange unused hours for credits with Nic The Trader.
Treasure Hunter Events
February also features special Treasure Hunter events. The Mysteria event runs from February 6th to 7th, followed by the Valentine’s-themed Gifts From The Heart from February 8th to 14th. This year, new Cherry Blossom themed offhands are introduced, along with the return of the Heartments store, offering items such as the Rosie pet and Rose Petal Aura Override.
Game Updates and Community Initiatives
The latest game patch addresses various improvements and fixes, enhancing the gameplay experience. These updates cover aesthetic adjustments, gameplay enhancements, and bug fixes.
Community events, organized by the Pink Skirts, offer players opportunities to engage in group activities such as battling the Corporeal Beast or participating in Vorago challenges. Additionally, the SupportScape Discord server provides a platform for community support, including events focused on mental health and relationships throughout February.
