Chaotic Tomes have been uncovered in Gielinor, holding mysteries and experience ready to be imparted on you!

From 00:00 on the 1st March through to 23:59 on 5th March, win small, medium, large and giant Chaotic Tomes from Treasure Hunter. Read the books and you’ll receive experience in your selected skill, but the XP will vary for every book. They’re chaotic!

Chaotic Tomes are just what you need to finish off those last levels from the double xp weekend!




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.

"Yo dawg, we heard you liked gambling, so we added gambling to your gambling, so you can gamble while you gamble."

But really, good job on adding another layer of uninformed decision making to the already predatory gambling simulator. Not like people wanted to know how much what they want is going to cost them anyhow.

I will agree the whole gambling to win XP and then another gamble within that to see how much you get is just... I don't know how that sits with me.

I NEVER comment on these promotions and always ignore them but I don't want to see another post next year about how mistakes were made. I feel like nothing has changed.

That being said, I simply ignore these and it doesn't affect me but this is my honest opinion on the subject.

Nope. This is not just another lootbox. It is a new Game of Chance within Game of Chance. ;)

Anyway,
it’s a fun way to acquire virtual items to enhance users’ experiences. There’s obviously an element of surprise, like with baseball cards. But you always get something, there’s no way to cash out, and you can complete a game without buying a loot box. So there are a lot of different factors where we just don’t think this qualifies for either of the gambling descriptors.
:P

Yep anything with chance is gambling.
The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

Uh oh... I just re-rolled my clue scroll... I am shaking in my Ranger Boots that FBI is going to arrest me for "illegal gambling". :(
