Eligible players will be prompted to collect their item

August 22, 2012


As promised in original news post, players who kept their membership subscription active throughout the month of May will soon find that they have two exclusive rewards waiting for them. First of all there’s the XP-boosting “Mad Necklace”. Whenever equipped, the Necklace will double any XP you earn in any skills you choose to train. Its magical properties have even been deemed safe for use in the dungeons of Daemonheim, so there’s no fear of a Fremennik warrior confiscating it while you’re working on your Dungeoneering. Eligible players will be prompted to collect their item from Diango’s stall in Draynor when they next log in! Please note the list of eligible players is still being processed and should be completed within the next few hours.

Secondly, those same eligible players will find that an extra Loyalty Points have been added to their existing points balance. Whether you’re planning on saving them up or spending them all at once, make sure you pay Loyalty Shop a visit or Varrock so that you can behold all of the amazing auras, emotes and costumes on offer. Players may have already run into the poor, problem-stricken Essjay amid the Jubilee celebrations in Varrock, but up until now they won’t have had a clue on how to help her. Thankfully, she has laid out her plight by way of a letter, posted on our official forums. You can check out her story along with instructions on how to get started by visiting the Cryptic Clue Fest 2012 thread.

There are some cool cosmetic items waiting for those who solve the clues over the next five days, so stay sharp, stay determined and get cracking! I’d like to clarify that it’ll be the stat you’re training that determines how the XP restriction is applied, rather than your Combat level as a whole. If you have level 99 Magic but, say, level 1 Attack, you’ll get normal XP from fighting low-level monsters, as long as you’re training the lower stat when you do so. I’d also like to correct myself slightly – if you’re affected by the XP restriction, you’ll have your XP earned reduced to 10%, not removed entirely.
