The 2019 winter event (also known as Valkyrie's Return in combination with the time-limited event with which it coincides) is the sequel to the 2018 winter event in which players can kill the 4 wolves found in the Fremennik Province: Hati, Sköll, Fenrir, and Frank. Players can talk to Vali and Vitharr for more information, and to the wolf hunter for quick access to the event area.
Upon login, the player was broadcasted with the following message: Fenrir, Hati and Sköll have returned. Head down to Rellekka to assist the valkyries!
- Hati is found in the woods southeast of Rellekka, and can drop Hati paws, which grant experience and bonus combat experience, as well as a cosmetic cloak and hood.
- Sköll must be summoned by adding logs to the bonfire, west of the Rellekka entrance. Once 120 logs are added to the fire (collective total for all players on the world), Sköll will emerge. Defeating him will grant players Sköll boots, which grants experience and bonus experience in Agility or Woodcutting. Players can also obtain a cosmetic amulet.
- Fenrir is found southeast of Rellekka near the golden tree. Players will receive Fenrir's tooth, which rewards players with experience and bonus experience in either Herblore or Summoning. They can also earn cosmetic body and legs gear.
- Frank (wolf) is found northeast of Rellekka, near the fairy ring DKS. When killed, he drops a rusty ring, which can be turned into Eir for 1 bonus experience in either Divination or Prayer. Shortly after killing Frank, Gabe, Frank's owner will spawn in the same location, who will give the player a lost dog flyer.
All three of the wolves can drop the Jormungand ring which is the 2019 replacement for Eir's helmet and Eir's spear from past winter events. The player no longer needs to obtain a duplicate drop and trade with another player. Returning the ring to Eir grants experience and bonus experience in Prayer or Divination.
The bonus experience granting items (paws, boots, tooth and ring) are re-dropped each year in order to claim the experience. The cosmetic items are only dropped if the player does not already own them.
Ironman players will only receive experience from this event, as they cannot get the bonus experience.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
Valkyrie's Return[edit | edit source]
In addition to the yearly return of the wolves event, 2019 introduced a time-limited event during which the players gather valkyrie feathers through skilling and turn them in to Eir, who is found near the Fremennik Province lodestone, for rewards.
During the event, some skills can offer bonuses to the amount of valkyrie feathers players earn when training that skill. There is a 20% bonus increase when training Mining and Smithing. Players are also able to get 500 feathers daily from killing the wolves (150 from Hati and Sköll, and 200 from Fenrir).
