Housing of Parliament & Double XP- This Week In RuneScape - News - RuneScape - RuneScape (2024)

Are you a friend to the owls? Perhaps you need some new necromantic bling – or maybe you're just getting ready for DXP? This week has you covered…

Housing of Parliament Quest & Um Updates
What's going down at the Owlery?

The City of Um calls to you once more, adventurer! A new quest will see you tidying up a quiet corner of town, and if you’re successful, receiving a new type of Gemstone. While you’re in the area, you might also notice the handy tweak we’ve made to glyphs, or nab yourself a prestigious pet upgrade. And if that’s not enough, a legendary character is rumoured to be dropping by with wares for sale – and some fantastical tales of old…

Find out more about today's changes in last week's blog!

Double XP Live
Returning on February 16th

Whether you’re working on your woodcutting skills, flexing your fletching or catching up on your cooking, DXP will help you achieve your goals.

DXP LIVE is a 10-day event where you have 48 Hours of Double XP to use at your leisure. You can pause the timer if you need to do other activities but don't want to lose out on that precious DXP time.

You can also once again make use of DXP Tokens! You can get them from DXP Spirits, which spawn intermittently while you’re skilling* or using Proteans and Dummies. Also, if you have any unwanted Proteans, no worries – you can convert up to 10,000 of them daily to use them on something more valuable to you!

DXP Tokens can be exchanged during any DXP LIVE for stars, skilling outfit pieces, elite skilling outfit pieces etc. There has been some rebalancing on the cost of some items as these systems are being developed. The DXP Token Store will be available during Double XP: LIVE events, and any tokens earned persist into future events.

*Note: Spirits will automatically claim DXP when they expire, so if you're going into DXP LIVE AFK style, you won't be missing out on earning Tokens!

DXP LIVE returns Friday, February 16th until Monday, February 26th, starting and ending at 12:00 PM Game Time. Learn more about how it works here!
