Here's a new twist on Treasure Hunter to wet your whistle: Bonus Boosters.

From 00:00 UTC on 30th March until 23:59 UTC on 3rd April, enhance your Treasure Hunting enjoyment with four effects, activated via the new buttons on the interface.

You can activate these once each, after which a cooldown period is applied. You can only have one booster active at a time.

Bonus BoosterWhat does it do?Uses per activation
Lucky Purple BoosterEnsures that your next prize is from the purple category.*1
Multiplier BoosterRandomly boost the number of prizes you receive, up to 5x.5
Extrasensory BoosterLook inside the displayed chests for rarity before you choose.5
Prismatic BoosterAny lamps and stars that you receive become prismatic.5


*Note that this booster can also grant access to a number of older, discontinued items:

Lucky dragon full helmLucky dragon chainbodyLucky dragon platebody
Lucky spectral spirit shieldLucky arcane spirit shieldLucky elysian spirit shield
Lucky divine spirit shieldLucky Bandos bootsLucky abyssal whip
Lucky dragon clawsLucky dragon 2h sword



Enjoy!


Have fun, and let us know what you think of this new way to play Treasure Hunter.

The RuneScape Team



What is Treasure Hunter?


Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.

Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.

Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.

If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.

For the most part, I really, REALLY like this idea. Honestly, I kinda wish this was a long term thing, with some massive cooldowns, like, say, 3-500 keys. That way it'd be a few special bonuses that most people would be able to get once or twice a year, and people who do buy keys would be able to use them more often.

That all being said, I'm a little uneasy about the fact that the guaranteed purple is available to non-members.

Not saying that they don't deserve it, it's just...The vast majority of purple items are member's items. So if this promo effectively means everyone will be getting a purple...I get the feeling there's going to be a lot of non-members who will feel extra-pressured into getting membership this weekend, with the carrot of a purple prize being dangled in front of almost everyone.

That feels more than a little insidious.

I've had more potential purples on my F2P accounts together than on my main account where I buy keys on a semi-regular basis. And this account has a majority of the lucky items.

F2P, in my experience, have a higher than usual chance to get those rare items simply to increase the chance of them buying membership for it.

I'm interested to see if these are permanent as well as seeing the cooldown periods.

I remember winning and then cashing out the lucky claw set; I've been regretting that for ages so its so cool to have a chance of getting them again.

P.S, we have had new rare item token store items every year; can we expect more new ones this year? :)
