Lol at all the outrage in comments, common how does this affect you? It's not like they force you to buy keys or use this. Last time I checked people who pay, don't pay to remove my xp, or get any pvp advantage that cannot be earned in the rest of the game. I haven't bought a single key, but I don't mind treasure hunter or it's promotions, in fact I always collected keys from quests and daily challenges, up to 100 where is the hard cap for earned keys (destroying any key token I get as these can't be claimed after 10 keys) and then just wait for a good promo and spend it all.. I even left quests on last step and 5 challenges ready to turn for this purpose, to bypass the 100 key cap. I managed to spend over 170 on a smoulder promo, over a year ago when I had garbage stats, it was actually challenging and fun, but right now the only promo I care about is prismania(maxxed expect for slayer, so only xp that matters is slay xp and prismania is good for getting bonus xp in the skill you actually want), if that turns up again and i don't miss it I'm spending all of my 28 earned keys on it.

Is the promotion order posted anywhere for the current day?

Page 1 of this thread only posts the 1st day's order.


I believe it might be random, hence "Mysteria".

If you click on your Treasure Hunter tab in-game it'll show you the current active promo, time remaining, and which one will be next. :)

You're right, we aren't forced to buy or use keys. That isn't why so many people are outraged. It ruins the game itself. If you like PvP, why bother grinding up combat skills when others can spend money for said levels? If you want to max, what's the point when some have done so just by spending loads of money? Even if you maxed, and worked hard for it, that achievement is devalued immensely because many have spent money for XP, some going so far as to buy XP to max a fresh account. This spoonfed XP bullshit trivializes the entire game.

Naivete like the above is truly worrisome; have you forgotten that Runescape is an MMO and not a single player game? The consequences of TH are quite clear in fact:

1. Competition for ranks in hiscores is largely dead for non-ironmen, because it is physically impossible for a player who trains his skills via actual gameplay to have any chance against a player who spins for the win.

2. Endgame content like bossing is only as profitable as it is, so long as there's enough demand for the drops. The more people reach those skill levels (for which TH greatly speeds up the process), the more supply there is and the less demand there is, making the profitability go down.

3. Constant overpowered TH promotions have caused the gp price of bonds to go sky-high, which in turn forces a player who buys bonds with gp for membership, to pay more and more gp for his membership. After all, membership is consumed much slower than TH keys.

Hopefully these examples are enough of a demonstration to show you that yes, TH does in fact affect quite many people, even if you aren't aware of it yourself! > )

The way Treasure Hunter is effecting me is the GP price of bonds is being kept so high due to the non stop Treasure Hunter XP promotions, I have not bought any bonds all Summer so now I don't have enough bonds to renew my memberships on any of my accounts for VIP for 2018.

I normally buy bonds during the Summer when the price falls below 12m each, the last time bonds were at or below 12m each was in May, and I didn't expect bond prices to stay high all Summer like they did, and I am not willing to pay that much for bonds because I find it hard to earn just under or potentially over a billion GP in a year to maintain memberships on 3 accounts, so I don't want to pay over 12m each for a bond.

This means instead of the 3 accounts I had planned to renew membership on via bonds, I will likely only renew one membership for 2018 and let the other two accounts become F2P for the first time in years.

Jagex figured out XP promos on Treasure Hunter sells keys and keeps the GP price of bonds high which probably means more bonds are sold for real money making Jagex more profits, but the effect for players like me is bonds are too expensive in GP which translates into me likely renewing two less memberships for 2018.
