Zamorak's demon invasion is an event that was introduced on 20 June 2022. Following on from Twilight of the Gods quest, the event starts the Legacy of Zamorak storyline, and features invading Avernic demons across mainland Gielinor in hourly raids near major settlements.

Approximately once every hour[note 1], a strange portal appears in either Ardougne, Burthorpe, Falador, Lumbridge, Varrock, or Yanille. This is announced in the chatbox with the message Game announcement.png Demons are attacking [city]! The portal continuously spawns lesser demons in the area for players to battle. Once enough lesser demons are killed, their leader appears. Defeating the leader will cause all demons to disappear. The demons' life points scale with the amount of players in the area.

The portal remains in the area for 15 minutes from its appearance, regardless if the invasion continues or not. The start of the invasion isn't synchronized between worlds, so it's possible for an invasion to be active in a world and not in another.

Armadyl, Azzanadra, and Saradomin appear with a combat level of 10,000 to help fight the demons, although they attack one demon at a time and deal minor damage.

Players can work toward receiving a maximum of four rewards per day, resetting at 00:00 UTC; in order, the player will receive a chaos die reroll token, followed by the three slivers in a random order.[note 2] Free players can only receive a chaos die reroll token each day and will not be able to progress towards any of the slivers. An empty backpack slot is required for a sliver to be obtained; otherwise, there is no drop for that group of 20.

Each of the rewards can be obtained by either defeating 20 lesser demons or by defeating the demons' leader. Progress made by defeating the lesser demons toward a reward is kept between invasions, but defeating the leader always causes the kill count to reach 20.

Locations[edit | edit source]

The invasions occur in the following cyclic order: Lumbridge → Varrock → Falador → Burthorpe → Ardougne → Yanille.

Lore drops[edit | edit source]

During the event, certain monsters around the game that are affiliated with Zamorak drop notes that give insight and details about Zamorak's ultimate goals. Each of the notes has a 1/25 drop rate from the corresponding monster. It has not yet been confirmed if having the Lorehound pet summoned increases drop chance.
