Welcome to This Week in RuneScape, your number one source for everything happening in the BEST MMORPG EVER (if we do say so ourselves). This week, Construction Contracts is going live, and there's a sweet deal on membership with Premier Club. There's also an impressive array of changes and fixes in the Patch Notes tab, and the usual shenanigans in the Community tab. Don't take our word for it though: read on and see it for yourself!

Not to sound too full of ourselves, but we think we've nailed this week's update! From today you'll be able to play Construction Contracts, a new, less expensive way to train Construction. But that's not all - we've also got news about Premier Club, and a new deal from Prime Gaming. Hard hats on? Then let's check it out!
New Construction Training Method: Construction Contracts!
Today we're cutting the ribbon on Construction Contracts! For those of you who missed the in-depth newspost and the preview livestream, here's everything you need to know.

Normally, you'd be training your Construction inside your Player Owned House, toiling away for hours building oak larder after oak larder, without seeing a single soul except your Demon Butler. With the arrival of Construction Contracts, all that's about to change. Now, you can train Construction on the surface world, at less cost, and help some friendly NPCs out while you're at it.

Completing Contracts

To get started, you'll need at least 40 Construction, which will let you complete your contracts with standard planks. As you advance in levels, you'll be able to use more expensive materials - which will impress your clients and net you a bit more XP.


Speak to an Estate Agent to get your first Construction Contract. You'll be sent to one of 11 different buildings in four of Gielinor's most iconic towns, where you'll be asked to spruce the place up a bit according to the resident NPC's grand designs. The furniture you're asked to build will vary, so come prepared for everything!

You'll get your XP once you've finished the job, along with the satisfaction of a job well done - and a bunch of Construction Credits, which you can use to buy some useful items back at the Estate Agent.


Here's what's on offer:

Plank Box

The Plank Box is an upgradeable storage solution that will let you carry at least 25 extra planks of each type with you at all times.

Here's how many you can carry with the upgraded versions:

Base: 25 Planks of each type

Upgrade 1: 50 Planks of each type

Upgrade 2: 100 Planks of each type

The basic Plank Box will cost you 50 Construction Credits, the first upgrade will cost 150 Credits, and the second upgrade will cost 300 Credits.

Elite Skilling Outfit: Master Construction

From tomorrow you can get your hands on the Elite Skilling Outfit for Construction via Dressed to Skill, our latest Treasure Hunter promo, or you can get it in-game from the Construction Contracts Reward Store. You'll be looking mighty handy either way!

There are five pieces in the set, each of which cost 250 Construction Credits. Wearing all of them will net you the following bonuses:

  • Option to automatically remove furniture immediately after building it
  • Ability to convert logs to planks on the go
  • Temporary +3 boost to Construction
  • Increased build progress for Construction Contracts
  • Chance to instantly finish repairs during Construction Contracts
  • Unlimited teleports to your house, house portals, Estate Agents, and your current Construction Contract


There are eight new Achievements in this update, one of which is required for the Completionist Cape.

Fully upgrade your Plank Box to earn the 'Absolute Planker' Achievement and restore your Cape. There's no Grace Period on this one, so get building!
Premier Club Membership
It's the most wonderful time of the year - Premier Club Membership is back! For those of you who are new here, Premier Club is the absolute best value deal for RuneScape membership, and, for a limited time, we've slashed prices to celebrate our upcoming 20th Anniversary! You'll secure either 3, 6, or 12 months of membership and get loads of extras, up to and including the exclusive Ceremonial Guard Armour and Ozzie pet, access to the Premium Track for all Yak Track events, extra daily Keys, the Premier Artefact, and much, much more!

Here's a taste of what you can expect from this year's packages:


*available for duration of Premier Club membership

On top of all that, you'll get access to everything the wonderful world of RuneScape has to offer - new quests, new skills, and new areas to explore! Plus, you'll get the most from our 20th Anniversary Celebration event coming up in January. What a deal!

Prime Gaming
There's a new offer from our friends at Prime Gaming. Wahey! From now until December 15th, you can claim 7 days of RuneScape Membership - just the thing if you want to try Construction for yourself!

Ugh, alright I'm going to rant... what is the point of construction contracts? The skill was already insanely fast if you spent the money on it, is this supposed actually be cheaper/faster? Or just cheaper? Unless I'm misunderstanding with this update, but you can already balance construction between GP/XP ratios extremely well to fit your budget/time spent so I'm not sure what the big deal was with this update.

Purely a change of scenery for training? Just my 2 cents I suppose, but kind of a lame update. Good deal on the premier club though!

A change of scenery for training, is actually very much needed. This allows for social interaction, and a feeling of 'usefulness' with the skill.

The old way of training construction, isolated to the house, with butler, and building, removing, etc, for the sake of efficiency, made socializing very hard.
