Wish you guys would start expanding the lore instead of these skill reworks. We need more expansions, Menaphos was nice. Hopefully the next one can be Fossil Island or Zeah.


They've also said they might bring Zeah to RS3, but most players (across both games) are not very well receptive of it, presumably because they want to keep the games unique and separate from each other.


This is what I don't understand. Why does Jagex label this as the map "of" Gielinor when it includes locations from RS3 and OS yet the actual in game versions of it don't actually share the same "planet" going off how it actually works ... is OS some parallel universe or am I missing something here?



They even sell this not 100% correct map of Gielinor:

^ I guess it's just Jagex's way of making a fan product that's not to be taken too seriously, but rather as curiosity of what the world would look like if the games combined their maps. Although, that said, the map is completely missing Ungael, so it's flawed anyway...

The idea is that Zeah does in fact exist in RS3, we just can't access it. If you sailed far enough west of Prifddinas and everything, you'd find Zeah.

Likewise, if somebody in OSRS sailed far enough towards where the Eastern Lands are in RS3, they'd find them there.

The only changing point is Guthix waking up during The World Wakes.
OSRS's timeline is if that never happened and the 5th Age continued without the gods' return.

Will the February double XP weekends stack with other XP boosts? I know the 10% XP boost we just got not only did it not stack with anything, it took priority over everything as well resulting in less XP than I would have been getting if it was not active


Stop ignoring my question

So to sum it up the bonus doesn't work with the following:

-Direct exp rewards such as quest exp and lamps (as it has always been)
-Any skill that already has bonus exp in it (this is depressing)
-Player owned altars exp modifier (which ruins my plans)
-Dwarven tools don't work at all during bonus exp weekends (despite stacking with bonus exp)
-Pretty much anything

It probably doesn't stack with skill costumes or clan fealty either.


And finally
-Engineering only gets a 50% increase instead of 100%


I'm starting to feel like Double exp is over hyped. according to the wiki it stacks with absolutely nothing just like the 10% bonus exp event.
