This week the Rex Matriarchs come roaring into the game with a new combat challenge for experienced fighters. Which is appropriate, because it's also Combat Week! Let's take a look...

Rex Matriarchs

We're paying homage to the classics this week with the launch of a brand-new Combat challenge that's brimming with nostalgia. It's time to face the Rex Matriarchs... if you think you're tough enough, that is!

You'll go up against three respawning bosses. Each has a different strength to test your mettle, but also a different weakness to be exploited. Grind those kills and earn powerful rewards to boost your Combat playstyle, or maybe even get your hands on the iconic Laniakea's Spear - T90 damage / T75 accuracy is not to be sniffed at, plus, it'll give you 5% extra poison damage and +5% chance to apply poison when used.

Veteran RuneScapers may recall classics such as Dagannoth Kings while new challengers will enjoy a brutal test of their combat mastery.

Note that access to Anachronia is required to take on this challenge. You can find more information in the announcement newspost.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your best gear and head to central Anachronia. The lair of the Rex Matriarchs awaits...

Awesome April: Combat Week!


It's week two of Awesome April, a month-long event designed to help make things right following the Login Lockout situation. Each week there's something new to try, and this week, we're focusing on all things Combat.

We'll be revisiting the Celebration of Combat event from January's Grand Party - but this time, we're going even bigger!

Players with normal accounts will get all the same buffs and boosts they enjoyed the first time around, along with a few new additions including:

  • No reclaim costs on death
  • No Ring of Death charges lost on death
  • Increased luck on the Rare Drop Table
  • Reduced cost of swapping Archaeology relics
  • Reduced Invention drain rate
  • Double Reaper Points
  • Double Slayer Points
  • Double Combat and Slayer XP
In addition, the Elder Overload golems have taken up residence in War's Retreat. Defeat them in glorious battle (by giving them a very light tap on the head) and you'll get an hour-long Elder Overload buff.

Of those effects, Ironman accounts will have access to:
  • No reclaim costs on death
  • No Ring of Death charges lost on death
  • Increased luck on the Rare Drop Table
  • Reduced cost of swapping Archaeology relics
  • Reduced Invention drain rate
  • Double Slayer Points
  • Double Reaper Points

Ironman accounts will not have access to:
  • Elder Overload golems
  • Double Combat and Slayer XP
Those bosses won't know what hit 'em! Be sure to tune in next week to see what else Awesome April has in store for you.

Combat Week kicks off today at 12:00 Game Time.

Upcoming Rented Item Changes

Solomon's been doing a bit of spring cleaning, and as of April 26th (next week's update), you'll notice a few changes to various items found in his store. Let's take a closer look.

Wealth Evaluator

From next week's update the Wealth Evaluator will become free for all players. You'll be able to access it automatically through the interface.

Existing Wealth Evaluator items, which previously unlocked the interface, will be cleaned up on log in. Should one get missed, simply click it to get it cleaned up, along with a reminder that the Wealth Evaluator tool is now free.

This is part of our ongoing commitment to making sure you're getting great value in all the right places. Be on the lookout for more changes in this vein as the year goes on.

Other Items

Various other items will now be available in both Solomon's General Store and in-game. No more hopping out of the game to get your goodies!

Challenge Gems can now be purchased from War in War's Retreat.

The Makeover Mage has expanded their stock to include Chameleon Extract, for all your fashionscape needs.

Non-Ironman players can purchase Clan Citadel Booster Packs from Quartermaster NPCs in Clan Citadels. As before, Ironman players will not be able to purchase these packs.

Lastly, Tasty and Jelly Treats can now both be purchased from the Legendary Pets menu.

Music Boxes

Morytania, Kharidian and Masterwork Music Boxes are now free for all players! If you don't already own them, you can claim yours from Diango's Item Storage. Party on!

The RuneScape Team
