Even OSRS may not have one this year, so RS3 having one is entirely laughable.


OSRS is getting a Halloween event. It'll be released on the 24th. RS3 won't have a Halloween event because RS3 players voted for less temporary content & more permanent content. Holiday events are classified under temporary content. There is a Halloween/horror themed quest based on some spider boss that will be released after Halloween for RS3. Treasure hunter will also have its own Halloween event.


RS3 is getting a bonus Halloween themed Araxxor quest where OSRS can't even dream of.

Besides, this is the RS3 forums. If you want a bonus Araxxor quest in OSRS, you should take your dream there.

I definitely didn't vote for less holiday events, and unless we also aren't getting a xmas event then I think that's just an excuse tbh.


I don't think we were asked to vote for less or more holiday events in any RS3 polls. On the other hand, we were asked to vote on how many (more) quests in the big RS3 Annual Survey.

Runefest 2019 Survey Reveal showed people want more quests, that's perhaps the reason Jagex want to make this year's Halloween Event (a temporary event) into a QUEST which we, the players, voted for.

What nonsense are you on about? Dream.. what? I don't even play OSRS. In the annual survey it was asked if players wanted more temporary content or permanent content. Players voted for permanent but that meant there would be no actual Halloween event. A quest about a spider boss isn't a Halloween event.


They did not ask for more temporary or permanent content in the Annual Survey. The RS3 Content Development Team already mentioned they would cut back on one-off events way before the Survey.

The Araxxor quest is, of course as I mentioned, not a holiday event but a quest. And Jagex is doing it because players want more quests. Note that they are also working on not just the Araxxor quest but also a few more like Elemental Workshop Quests, that were not mentioned in Runefest at all. These are all extra-bonuses RS3 is delivering to their players on top of the already rich content announced in Runefest 2019.
