EDIT: Most are copy-pasted bonuses, so nothing really interesting new, meh.

RIP good times grinding with others at Pauline's farm; people looking to comp today can no longer understand the value of produce, when the req can be blazed through so quickly.

So basically it's winter weekends minus the double commendations from pest control and in summer.

How boring.
Now this is what I call a brilliant signature

-Runecrafting: Increased node spawns and double reward points at Runespan.

Hey, just to verify, the Runespan bonus has been changed to be double runes, and not double points, correct?

This makes it so that people that runespan early don't get all their points doubled from premade runes, and people that don't leave before the weekend is over don't have all their points halved after the event is over.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
