Treasure Hunter | Novtumber Festival

It's time to celebrate the natural glory of Gielinor this weekend with the Novtumber Festival – only on Treasure Hunter.

From 00:00 UTC on 19th November until 23:59 UTC on 23rd November, Novtumber Festival seeds will be available in Treasure Hunter chests – a boon for those looking to train Farming and Prayer.

Unlike regular seeds, you don't need a patch – they'll grow anywhere that you can make a fire. Plant them and watch as they quickly sprout to maturity.

You then have two options:

  • Pick the produce and offer it up for Prayer XP. You may get 'perfect' produce from time to time, which yields more XP.
  • Forgo the produce for Farming XP and the chance to get back some of your seeds.

Note that you've got a limited time to harvest them before they decay, giving only token XP. Don't plant too many at once!

In addition to the Harvest Festival seeds, magic beans are returning, and can be obtained as you gain Farming XP from lamps, or from farming itself. These can be exchanged with Martin the Master for seeds and a cosmetic hoe.

Finally, pieces of the Farmer's outfit and First Age Prayer outfit will be available on Treasure Hunter, and all lamps and stars used on Farming or Prayer will yield +25% XP.


Have Fun!

Green-fingered types will love the bountiful benefits on offer this weekend. Enjoy, and give us your thoughts over on the forums.


What is Treasure Hunter?

Treasure Hunter is a minigame – playable from within RuneScape - where players 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.
