Winter Weekends are here all December, bringing XP and reward bonuses to some of your favourite RuneScape activities.
Skilling Weekend is first, kicking off at 12:00 GMT on 5th December and lasting until 12:00 GMT on 8th December.
All weekend, you'll enjoy the following boosts to non-combat activities:
- Smithing: Double XP and respect in the Artisans' Workshop
- Divination: Enriched wisps spawn every 10 minutes, rather than 20
- Divination: Springs last for twice as long once a wisp is activated
- Fishing: Spots move around half as frequently as before
- Runecrafting: Increased node spawn rate and reward points at the Runespan
- Mining & Woodcutting: Rocks and rare trees replenish twice as fast when depleted (note that this does not include crystal trees, bloodwood trees, or trees planted with the Farming skill)
- Thieving: pharaoh's sceptre and Black Ibis outfit drops are twice as likely at Pyramid Plunder
Donate a Bond to Oxfam and you'll unlock the Oxfam Festive Aura bauble[help] - an item that can reset the XP-giving Festive Aura[help] once per weekend day, doubling its benefits.
Note that Ironman and Hardcore Ironman players will see increased spawn rates, durations, and other global effects, but will not get personal benefits such as improved drop rates, XP or point gains.
So gather your friends and head out into Gielinor for an awesome weekend of skilling. Have fun, and look out for more Winter Weekends later this month!
