The 2013 Winter event is a sequel to the 2012 Winter event in which players can kill two wolves: Hati and Sköll. Players can begin the event by talking to Vali outside the gates of Rellekka. After this, the player will be able to fight both wolves
Upon killing the wolves, players can obtain Hati paws, Hati head, Hati Cloak, Sköll boots and a Sköll amulet. However, there is only an 80% chance of each drop (except the boots, which have a 60% chance drop rate), so Hati or Sköll may have to be killed more than once to receive all the rewards.
Starting the Hunt[edit | edit source]
To start both parts of this event, players can talk to Vali outside of the Rellekka gates. She says Hati and Sköll are scaring everybody in the Fremennik lands. According to her, Hati makes the lands very cold in the winter, and his brother Sköll makes the lands burning hot in the summer. Their goal is to consume the moon and the sun, respectively. They can't be reasoned with, so the citizen asks you to help fight them both.

Hati[edit | edit source]
After talking to Vali in front of Rellekka, players could now search for and kill Hati. He has three spawn points to the east of Rellekka which are scattered from the north to the south of the area. It wasn't hard to find any of these spawn points for Hati, as there were likely many players waiting at each spawn point to kill him.
The best tactic towards finding Hati is to stay in a single spawn location and wait until Hati spawns there. It is not recommended to run to another spawn when told that he has spawned, as the large amount of players there had probably already killed him.
After being killed, Hati would re-spawn in several minutes in another one of his three spawn points. He will be slain fairly quickly so make sure you attack him as soon as possible to make sure you have a chance at getting a reward.
Hati is a level 120 wolf. He will always drop wolf bones, and has an 80% chance of dropping each piece of clothing (Hati paws, Hati head and Hati Cloak), which are either all dropped at once or not at all. As long as the player did 1 life point of damage, he/she has the same chance of receiving the drop as everybody else.
Sköll[edit | edit source]
Sköll spawns to the west of Rellekka and only has a single spawn location. To begin this part of the event you will need to talk to Vitharr who is located at the shore to the west of Rellekka, after having spoke to Vali.
She wishes to summon Sköll when he is at his weakest in order to defeat him and rid the Fremennik of his threat for good. By doing so, she hopes to show the wolf brothers that the Fremennik cannot be bested at any time of year, thus deterring the brothers from attacking the citizens. To summon Sköll, Vitharr advises the player to build a bonfire as intense as the sun, so that Sköll is drawn to the realm to investigate.
Venture around this area and cut as many trees as you can to collect wood. It doesn't matter what kind of trees you cut as any logs will work. Once you have as much wood as possible, go back and add it to the fire. When the fire is at it's biggest, Sköll will spawn.
Sköll is a level 140 wolf. He will always drop wolf bones, and has an 60% chance of dropping Sköll boots as well. As long as you do 1 hit point of damage you have the same chance of receiving the drop as everybody else. Make sure you attack Sköll as quickly as possible as you will be surprised at how quickly so many players can kill him.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In Norse mythology Hati and Sköll are two wolves who are trying to devour the moon and sun (respective to each wolf). This same theme is continued in RuneScape as the Fremennik are heavily based around the real-world Norsemen.
- In Norse mythology, Vidarr is the god who slays Fenrir, father of Hati and Sköll, at the end of time.
- If players lose these items through dying, they can get replacements from Diango, and they will have retained the charge which was previously held before dying.
