Get ready for a RuneScape Road Trip[help]! From 1st May 2014, 1am BST, you'll have a whole month to complete 20 special tasks, earning XP aplenty, a hiker's outfit and a cheeky monkey pet.
Each weekend, there'll be an awesome bonus event, giving increased XP, drops, minigame rewards and more - plus, there'll be tons of fun stuff scheduled in the RuneScape community.
May's a great time to be a RuneScape member. Read on for more information, or log in then and speak to Challenge Mistress Fara.
Let's Hit the Road
Head over to Burthorpe and chat to Challenge Mistress Fara, who'll give you the run-down of the how the road trip's going to work, and hand you your road trip journal. This lists 20 tasks, of which you can complete one per day throughout May.
We know May's a busy month for many of you, so we've made the RuneScape Road Trip accessible and flexible - you'll be able to enjoy it, even if your time is limited. The tasks[help] are varied, fun, and you can complete them in any order you wish:
- Complete a Dungeoneering floor.
- Complete a Slayer assignment.
- Complete a Treasure Trail.
- Equip a full outfit of cosmetic gear.
- Do a dance on every bridge over the River Lum.
- Fletch 100 bows.
- Smith 100 bars into anything.
- Make 100 runes.
- Burn 100 logs.
- Complete a quest, or Tears of Guthix.
- Rest for a minute.
- Complete a full round of Heist.
- Complete a full round of Castle Wars.
- Run from Shantay Pass to Sophanem without any waterskins.
- Bury 100 bones in a graveyard.
- Kill a demon, goblin, or goblin raid boss during a flash mob.
- Survive in the Wilderness for 10 minutes.
- Complete a round of the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza minigame.
- Feed 10 breadcrumbs to a duck or a drake in under 20 seconds.
- Gather your daily limit from divine locations.
They're rewarding, too: you'll get an XP lamp for each one you complete - usable in the skill of your choice. At 5, 10, 15 and 20 tasks complete, you'll get a piece of the cosmetic hiker's outfit, and at 20, you'll also get the cheeky monkey pet.
If you can't make it for 20 days, or if there's a particular task you don't like the look of, help is at hand! Our friendly JMods will be in the game throughout the month, and will be able to stamp tasks on your journal, granting you the completed task and reward.
Keep an eye on the news and the forums for more details of JMod visits and community events throughout May.
