Learn Summer Escape - Skilling Bonanza In August [Tuesday, August 13, 2019]

At the risk of dredging up bad feelings about a certain 8th Season, we’d like to remind you all that winter is coming. Yes, those halcyon summer days are coming to a close, and there’s no better way to acclimatise yourself to the encroaching chill than to shut yourself indoors and snuggle up with your favourite MMO. Right? This week, learn how you can make your Summer Escape, find out the results of the Spectacular Summer Skill Off, and check out a few small changes we’ve made to Anachronia.

Skill off Roundup
Gielinor’s first ever summer skill-off has come to a close. The snack yaks are packed, the accursed swords have been distributed, and your fabulous host has returned to the dank pit from which he came. But there’s still one question left to answer… which skill won?!

*ahem* drumroll please! We can now announce that the winning skill of the inaugural Spectacular Summer Skill Off is…!

DUNGEONEERING! We’re hole-y surprised by this one. When we first got the PITch for the dungeoneering booth, we really thought it’d be a bit too deep for you guys. But hey – we’re glad we caved in in the end!

Are we done? We’re done. Congratulations, Dungeoneers! Hopefully none of you left anything too important down there.

All Players, excluding Ironmen, will receive Double Daily Oddments on Treasure Hunter Rewards every Wednesday in the Month of August! Enjoy!
