Is this meant to be a replacement for last year's summer party in the Lumbridge Crater, or is that coming later as well?

Right at the end of the post it says "We'll see you on the beach!" so I'm thinking that means the beach will be back too.

The beach is definitely coming back this month as it's in the Month Ahead – July video.

Does this mean we can host Q&A's on the beach again like last year? ^_^

Bonus chance of jewelled statuettes while wearing a ring of wealth and doubled chance of sceptre of the gods and black ibis while at Pyramid Plunder.

Increased chance of rare drops and enhanced ring of wealth.

Will these bonuses only apply to the ring of wealth, or will the Luck of the Dwarves and Hazelmere's signet ring be given the same treatment?

Profiled.

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

‣ +50% produce points at Livid Farm (stacks with boosters). ⊷

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.


You are 1 unsatisfied rs player! The majority of your posts are negative towards Rs (or players)
Nothing interesting or new? I can find many things interesting on that long list of summer weekends. Unless a player has 200 mil in every skill or has a trimmed Comp Cape there is something for most players on that list.

GRINDING verses understanding: Dude most rs players have a frikken LIFE, That includes JOBS, SPOUSES, KIDS, SCHOOL EVENTS or SPORTS for those kids, Bills, Vacations, Work trips, and some rs Players attend schools and colleges themselves online or a Facility. NOT EVERYONE can sit on the computer and GRIND for 24/7 their whole life like you.

Also these weekends include some mini games. are you not one of those that complained rs is dead or mini games are dead? here is a chance to get ppl involved. Specially if that's still on their achievement list.

Why in the heck do we need NEW content if we have tons of content in the game. Maybe just maybe it's the rs Players fault if they are bored or there is DEAD content, because they CHOOSE not to play it. Maybe this incentive is a positive thing.

BUT YEAH KEEP WHINNING EVERY POST. Us thankful rs players are just fan boys/girls or whales right?!? We don't understand the grind, we don't have a life.


Jagex thank you for these summer weekends I have made notes of the things I will attempt to do and try to complete.

Jagex expects me to pay $11 a month + throw loads of money to runecoins, TH keys, Runepass, Runemetrics, bonds etc, so naturally my expectations are significantly higher than if the monetization was under control. Don't blame me for expecting more, blame Jagex for overestimating their worth. (Oh and why tell me that my posts are negative, when your posts are also for the most part negative towards the people you're quoting?)

Re-read what I said: interesting new. There is no "or" in there for a reason, because I meant "interesting new" as a whole thing. There are very few new things on the list of bonuses, and out of those bonuses, none are really that interesting.

I have a full day job as well btw, so please don't spread false information about me.

Thing is that Runescape has always been about the grind and much less about the end goal, so if you want instant gratification every day, it'd be better to seek another game that actually fits that criteria by design.

Minigames are dead because people don't find them fun enough; adding temporary bonuses just temporarily gives them life, then kills them again. I'd rather have a solution that makes an impact permanently than temporarily luring in people who only care about the rewards.

Because the monetization is so over the top that it's only fair that we expect more in return.
