Howdy, y'all!

This Saturday, October 25th, at 1:00 PM RSBandB time (12 Noon Pacific, 3 PM Eastern, 7 PM UTC, 8 PM BST), we will be reviving our Boss Takedown event! We are partnering with Clan Quest, and will be starting off with the Kalphite King!

We will be meeting at the Shantay Pass on World 72.

I hope that it goes without saying that you should bring your combat gear and such :wink:

Here is a link to a strategy guide for the Kalphite King.

Please be in the friends chat "Earth271072" (that's twenty-seven one zero seven two)

Hope to see you all there!

[Informer Article] Overloading Informer

October has arrived and the seasons are sure changing quickly (here at least). This month our writers have produced an excellent selection of articles, the best you'll find online pertaining to RuneScape. Tanis opened up the month with a quick guide on Making the Most Out of Your Clan Experience and his experiences at Fealty Stars. Next up Jason returned to an old favourite, Sinkholes! He gives a quick rundown on Sinkholes and how useful they can be. Mr Bistro then brought up a very important issue that players will no doubt encounter at one point or another: Burnout. He gives some advice on how to avoid it and how to ultimately recover from it. This month we saw the release of the Rune Goldberg machine in an effort to make runes more valuable. Alex talks about how in years past runes were actually something that were to be valued by players. Finally, Lord Rickles asked somewhat of an (Over)loaded Question (hah-hah-hah...) pertaining to Overload potions. It's certainly an interesting idea but how would players react?

This month we have two non-RuneScape related pieces that make the reader think. First up is Duke Juker with The Difference between Gamer and "Gamer". He highlights what exact negative connotations have been built up over time all while referring to both good gamers and bad gamers by the same term! Our other non-RuneScape article focused on the Apple Watch from yours truly. I focused on a myriad of factors from how it's already being shunned (before release), how it will ultimately be successful, and why it's an important milestone in the future of our technological advancement.

In September's Skill of the Month Ataronchronon (Touchpad Pro) pulled an impressive come from behind finish. He gained just over 20 million Fletching experience. Second place was awarded to Flash who gained roughly 10 million experience. And an honourable mention goes out to Blethorskite in third with 1.5 million experience gained.

Congratulations, here is your trophy!


Our group of Ambassadors have been executing a string of successful events. We've been to Trouble Brewing, Stealing Creation, and most recently Castle Wars. They've been oh so fun and I highly encourage everyone to come if you are not occupied. These events will most certainly continue and planning for October is underway. Right now though, they want to know what you, the community, would be interested in having for events. You can head over to the forums and post your thoughts in this topic. Want a certain type of event? A certain day or time? Want to involve another fan site or community? Post and let the Ambassadors know!

That's all for this month!

RSBANDB Goes to Castle Wars!

Hey guys,

This Saturday, September 27th, at 1:00 PM RSBandB time (12 noon pacific, 3pm eastern, 7pm UTC, 8pm BST), we will be going to Castle Wars!

We will be meeting up in the Castle Wars lobby on World 72. Don't forget your combat equipment, as you will probably want it for this event!

We will be in the RSBANDB Friends Chat ("Bitsbytes") for this event.

If you haven't played Castle Wars before, the rules are quite simple; it's a giant, deadly game of Capture the Flag. Capture the enemy flag and kill the enemy team.

Hope to see you all there!
